Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta CATNAPPERS Two tuckered-out travellers slopped on Calgary's downtown recently to calch 40 winks. They ignored the shoppers and also managed lo caJch a rays of sunshine which poked through an overcast sky. mai few Government may cut support EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government Is not willing to provide further assis- tance to the Marlboro Logging Co-op west of Edson unless the group does something about its management problems, agri- culture Minister Hugh Homer said in the legislature.

He said It is necessary for the Metis-Run Co-op to reduce losses on equipment and to ac- cept complete management as- sistance if if is to continue re- ceiving provincial support.

The U.S. authorities are more than a little pleased lo be rid of one irritating thorn in their side, Dr. Klaus Steiniger, an East German foreign corres- pondent who has himself be- come something of a figure at the trial. Dr. Sleiniger who is not exactly your run-of-the- mill newspaperman, for- eign editor of his country's offi- cial Party paper, Koues Deuts- chland, a member of the Party Central Committee and a form- er state prosecutor has been refused an extension of his visa and sent packing. Angela Davis is, of course, very big news in East Germany, where Eteiniger's newspaper has been running two or three articles a day about her and TV documentaries daily carry the latest news of rallies on her behalf around the globe. For these, and indeed for everything that is being done lo "Free the U.S. Communist Party is pleased to take credit. But if the USCP has turned Miss Dans into a latter-day Joan of Arc, she for her part has done wonders for the for- tunes of the ailing party. Party spokesman say they didn't believe that, in the time available to them, they could gather the necessary sig- natures to put Gus Hall, the Party's general secretary, on the ballot as a presidential can- didate. But petitioners in the streets soon found that wear- ing an Angela Davis button, or asking people to "sign for Ang- ela Davis' Party" brought an enthusiastic response, especial- ly from blacks. The campaign- ers had their signatures well before the deadline. As People's World, Ihc official Party organ in Uie U.S. puts it: "Mention of Angela Davis immediately underlined the connection te- Lwecn the CP and the issues."
