Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Socialists on Portuguese junta names leaders soon By JOHN ORGAN LISBON Portugal's quiet revolution faces a major test this week when its new military rulers appoint a provisional civilian government to rule the country until general promised within a year. Some Portuguese believe Socialist and Communist leaders will figure in the interim administration. But political and diplomatic sources believe it is more likely to be a government of moderate leaving leaders of the emergent political parties to organize themselves for the election campaign and create the popular base which has been missing from Portuguese politics since 1926. Strongly tipped to be named as prime minister is Adeline da Palma professor of law at Lisbon University and administrator of various industrial companies. Friends describe him as a centre right conservative democrat. He fell foul of the Salazar regime in 1935 and was barred from holding public office for his political beliefs. Next president Gen. Antonio de head of the seven-man military is expected to become president. The Portuguese are still in a mood of elation at the restoration of democratic rights for the first time in 48 and newspapers are freely publishing friendly reports about left-wing politicians and denouncing the overthrown regime as fascist. The junta does not wish to disappoint their hopes. On the other it does not wish to frighten away the foreign investment on which Portugal depends for expanding its economy. A source close to the junta said no one knows what popular support the Socialists or Communists enjoy until there are so it is logical for the interim government to be a coalition of technocrats. A spokesman for the junta pledged again during the weekend that Portugal will move ahead with programs on the principles of purest Although he warned the liberty entails he denounced the past censorship which strangled ideas in Portugal. Free press Portugal's previously muted by are revelling in their freedom. The exiled leaders of the Socialist and Communist respectively Mario Scares and Alvaro were greeted by cheering crowds when they returned here soon after the April 25 coup. Both have been tipped for cabinet offices by some newspapers. who visited several West European capitals for talks with Socialist has been spoken of as a possible foreign and Cunhal has been tipped as a minister without portfolio. Peasants hope for better life GLORIA DE Portugal This farming where women gossip at the fountain and dogs sleep safely in the dirt seems remote from Lisbon although it is only 40 miles away. Yet what the relatively small political class in the capital decides about war and peace or dictatorship and democracy is intruding on a way of life that otherwise has not changed much for centuries. In a dim cafe there is a photograph of a soldier on a wall behind the bar. The inscription Fino died' in Mozambique Nov. at the age of Young the son of a local was part of. the heavy tribute that the Portuguese peasantry has been paying to a war to hold the country's African empire together. Thirteen years after the fighting began in Angola and Portuguese Guinea and less than four years after this particular soldier's the war-weary armed forces overthrew the long- entrenched dictatorship. Since the coup d'etat on April the politicians suddenly released from prison or exile have rushed to claim power in a Democratic and some of them will share it in a provisional government that is scheduled to be announced this week. Far from all this villagers in this area seemed perplexed by the visit of a few foreign as if unaccustomed to having anyone ask their opinions on anything. Periodically the old regime's political machine would call on them to vote for government and it was in the rural areas that it rolled up its heaviest majorities against opposition who confined themselves largely to the relatively sophisticated cities. Some men and women pleaded their illiteracy today to say know Most said how happy they were at the overthrow as a way out of war and the chronic depression that has gripped the rural areas for so long. Ignacio Pereira a 66-year-old wheat leaned over his wall and acknowledged he had been voting for the government. we did not know about many of the things that were he said. for we were very far away from these Caneilhas referred to the revelations of the torture.used by the old security police which has now been disbanded and whose members are being jailed.

Impeachment signs barred in Chicago WASHINGTON The United States Supreme on a 5-to-4 agreed Monday to block the posting of signs urging impeachment of President Nixon in Chicago mass-transit advertising spaces. The dispute began when a Sroup called the Impeach ixon Committee attempted to buy space from the Chicago Transit Authority in buses and subways. The transit authority accepts paid political advertisements for such and anti-war but it refused the exhortations for impeachment. The impeachment committee won a decision from the U.S. Circuit Court at Chicago forcing acceptance of the posters. But the transit authority ap- plied to Chief Justice Warren Burger of the Supreme Court to block the effect of the lower-court ruling pending appeal. Earlier this month Burger staying the appeals court decision until further action by the full Ajtiivt HiViisih Canada seeks Olympic security help MONTREAL se- curity arrangements for the 1976 Montreal Olympics are under Canadian command but other countries will be asked to help with Assistant Director Guy Toupin of the Montreal Urban Community police said Monday. Mr. Toupin said the RCMP- which has two members on a seven-member committee on public safety overseeing Olympic already asked the United States for closer in- tensification of the co- operation that already exists between U.S. and Canadian agencies. want the co-operation of the United States and other countries as well of we must remember that the U.S. is our closest only 35 miles from Mr. Toupin said. He that 'Olympic security arrangements come under the safety committee over which he presides. The committee includes two members from the Montreal two from the two from the Quebec-Provincial Police and one from the Canadian armed forces. In there are 10 subcommittees working part-time on various aspects of Olympic security. Mr. who has twice visited Munich where 11 per- sons died as a result of an Arab terrorist attack on Israeli athletics during the 1072 told a reporter Canada needs the co-operation of the U.S. and other countries but there are no plans for a security combining Canadian and U.S. agencies. CANADIANS SUPERVISE He saw the possibility of American officials being at- tached to the public safety committee in the capacity of observers but the supervision of security and the work the would be done by Canadians. A CBC French-language program aired Saturday indicated that the U.S. and Canada were considering the formation of a joint security force for the Olympics. Lewis head of a U.S. anti-terrorist investigation committee and an aide to Henry secretary of said on the program Canada and the U.S. have a common objective to head off terrorism but declined to give details. are here to support Mr. Hoffacker said. will offer an open invitation to in view of the Munich tragedy in which nine of the 11 persons slain were Israeli athletes. Mr. Toupin said he does not know Mr. Hoffacker but the RCMP had requested close co- operation for the Olympics from such bodies as the the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration. A request had been made for information they have on terrorism. Mr. said the se- curity committee would be re- questing similar co-operation for France and African countries. Mr. Toupin said it is too early to estimate how many members of the Canadian armed forces will be required to supplement police forces. great part of the oper- ations will be covered by the regular operations of the police the security chief added.
