Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE U7HBRIDGE HERAID Solurdoy, March 31, 1973 Anti-riot weapon tested I LONDON (AP) British set- tntists are testing an anil-riot jveapon that uses sound and tight waves to iiuluce nausea and epileptic tils to break up hiobs, tile New Scientist maga- zine reports. The magazine says in its dc- scriplioti of the weapon: ILA large group of proles tcrs reaches police lines. Suddenly five per cent of the group has epileptic fits. Although they see and hear nothing strange, the Indian problems iiblieiiy rest teal a throbbing In the ears flashing in their eyes, possibly one-quarter be- receive By DOXAT VALOIS PARIS (CP) After wide- spread coverage of the occupa- tion of Wounded Knee, S.D., by United States Indians, the French press is paying some at- tention to Canadian Indians and Uieir problems. In Wednesday's edition, Le Monde published two lengthy articles on Canada's native peo- ples. In the firsi, Le Monde de- scribes the Indians' resistance to government proposals that would give the native people the same rights as white citizens and subject them to the same duties, such as income taxes. In the second article, the newspaper reports tlw ex- perience of a young Frenchman who lived for a while with the Cree Indians in the Mistassini area of northern Quebec. "The interest today in the rebirth of the U.S. Indian na- tions should not allow us to for- get that in Canada the Indians are gravely threatened by sev- eral projects which will make the continuation of their tradi- tional ways of life Le Monde says. The newspaper quotes Mike Myers, a leader of the Ameri- can Indian Movement, as say ing a "Wounded Knee" could occur in Canada and contending that Canadian Indians are the objects of injustice, racism and segregation by whites. The newspaper also recounts the opposition of Quebec- In- dians and Eskimos to the multi- fa i 11 i o n-dollar James Bay hydroelectric project in north- western Quebec which they say will destroy way of life. their traditional could endanger the dollar. The Didians and Eskiniris in the James Bay area are cur- rently seeking a Quebec Supe- rior Court injunction to halt the project. "If, by the simple exercise of their rights, the Indians and Eskimos succeeded in blocking a project, it would be an important victory for the Indians of North Amer- the newspaper says. Le Monde says the Canadian Indians' resistance is motivated by feelings of weariness and ex- asperation after centuries of racism, paternalism and segre- gation. "The Indians no longer have confidence in the white man. They don't see what they have to gain by becoming like other Canadian citizens, except to supply the despised bottom layer of the vertical mosaic which makes up Canadian society." come sick. The group panics and clisDerscs.' The New Scientist says the weapon is a modification of the technique of flashing strobe Liphts used in discotheques, but using invisible infrared light rays instead. These are com- bined with ultrasonic sound waves almost inaudible to the human ear. "It has been known for many yi'iirs that rapid-flashing lights will trigger attacks not only in known epileptics but in about Canadian four per cent of anparently nor- mal people as the maga- zine says. "Studies have also shown that strobes make about one-quarter of the population 'eel with experiences including giddiness, nausea, speed difficulties and even Lougheed promises statement Heralif Legislative Bureau EDMONTON The sugges- tion was made in the legisla- ture Thursday that Alberta fol- low Ontario and establish con- flict of interest regulations for cabinet ministers and senior civil servants. Premier Lougheed promised Bill Wyse (SC-Medicine Hat- Hedciiff) a statement.on con- ftict of interest regulations Their opposition is shared by, sometime later in the current some Queliecers and the federal! spring session of the assembly government views the project with some doubts, Le Monde says, contending that Quebec's borrowing on the U.S. money markets to finance the project Mr. Wyse asked if regula- tions might be extended to sen- ior civil servants and the pre- mier said the matter was under consideration.

Sterilization act to be abolished VICTORIA (CP) The Sex- ual Sterilization Act of 1933, w h i c h allowed Uie provincial cabinet to order the steriliza- tion of a mental patient, is to be abo'ished. Health Minister Dennis Cocke said, after introducing a hill to repeal the act, that it was archaic and hadn't been used for about 10 years. A "hoard of eugenics" was set up under the act, compris- ing a British Columbia judge, a psychiatrist and a social worker, which would rule on recommendations by superin- tendents of mental institutions for sterilization of inmates. A superintendent could rec- ommend such an operation if it "appears" that the inmate "would he likely to beget or bear children who by reason of inheritance would have a ten- dency to serious mental disease or mental deficiency." Tiie operation was uol to he performed unless the inmate consented in writing, or if he incapable, the inmate's wife, husband, parent or guard- ian. If he had none o[ these, fi nal power rested with the pro- vincial secretary in the cabi- net. The only privilege grantee the inmate was the right to choose the doctor to sterilize him. Tells of torture Air Force Col. David W. Winn, right, tells of tortures on American POW's while in captivity in North Vietnam. Lt. Col. Leo K. Thoraness also spoke of the torture to him and other U.S. piiols. Thoraness props his right leg on pillows during the press conference ot Scott Air Force Base, III. Both knees were injured when he ejected from his aircraft ot more than oOO miles per hour, when hir by ground fire in April 1967. was downed in August 1968. Winn is from Minneapolis and Thoraness is from Sioux Falls, Soulh Da- koto. Offered by airlines Travel agents get kickbacks TORONTO (CP) Many air- lines are reported offering travel agents "kickbacks' of between and for every passenger they book on the air- lines under Canada's new char- ter flight regulations. John Stafford, president of the Central Canada Chapter of the American Society of Travel Agents, said Thursday: "It's common knowledge in the trade that if you shop around certain airlines are offering in- ducements and incentives over and above the regular commis- NOW RENTING "Imperial Court 52nd Ave. 6th St. West CLARESHOLM 33 UNIT 2 BEDROOM .00 3 BEDROOM .OO Includes refrigerator, stove, drape rods, fenced, landscaped and paved parking FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT (CAIGARY) LTD. 2050 10th Ave. S.W, CALGARY Phone 1-244-2716 son to agents to push their par- ticular line." liD standard commission for travel agenls is 10 per cent of the faro paid by an air passen- ger. Major airlines entered the charter business, previously confined mainly to smaller lines, when new federal regu- lations came into effect last January. Under the Advanced Booking Charter (ABC) regulations, any- one may travel on a charter by booking their flight 90 days in advance and making a non-re- fundable deposit of 25 per cent of the fare. RULES CHANGED The new regulation elimi- nated previous requirements limiting charter flights to mem- bers o! groups or organizations. With many more plane seats available for charter, particu- larly on the Atlantic route, the airlines are forced to compel for passengei-s. Hoiiry Moos, president o Kennedy Travel Bureau Ltd defended the "kickbacks" or bo nuses. "It's nobody's business wha we (Ihe agents) as retailers pa for our merchandise. The only thing that concerns the cus- tomer is what he pays and whether the price is right for him." Dennis Gill, president of Sun Tours Ltd., said standard practice between ma- jor airlines and large travel agents. A spokesman for tlie Cana- dian transport commission said airlines offering kickbacks run the risk of having a flight or series of flights cancelled by the commission's air transport committee.
