Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE tETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, May VT, 1970 ----------------------------________ Keep Eye On Russians At International Date Line Alaska National Guard Has Big Task With Few LITTLE DIOMEDE, Alaska (AP) Seven members of the Alaska National Guard. Three M-14 rifles. One g r e n a d One grenade. These are the American armaments at this liny spot on the globe where the United the Soviet Union com within miles of touching. Somehow, the more superfluous thai puny. In fact, the whole scene ou here in the middle of the Bering Russia's Big Diomede and America's Little Diomede two stark grey heaps of rocks on opposite sides of the International Date seems a ridiculous caricature of the superpowers of East and West. Out here, an American squints through a telescope at the forlorn shack atop Big Diomede and sees a Russian .ookout squinting back. Both feel the same urge. They wave. Suppose somebody decided to walk across the ice and go visit that fellow? "We would stop Andy Kunayak says. Kunayak is one of Little Diomede's seven Es-dmo Scouts, as Alaska National Guard are officially called. A few years ago a visitor ried it. He was spotted walking cross about 2 a.m. while were watching a movie. Kunayak and four other scouts grabbed their rifles and fetched him back. Reports persist that Eskimos still visit back and forth between Siberia and Alaska, as in the old days, but that hasn'l been so for a generation. In the summer of 1947, of Little Diomeders, una ware that a cold war they never made and an Iron Curtain they couldn't see had divided the Diomede twins, crossed the strait to visit with fcinfolk and were captured by strangers. Jacob Ahkinga, a Little Diomede oldtimer, recalls the incident with bitterness. "There were 27 of he says. "We went across in two skin boats. The soldiers took the boats and made us stay in tents on the rocks. "They kept us there 46 days and then told us we could leave. A storm came up and we had to stay six days onger. All they fed us was a jrine'y soup once a day. We came home weak and dirty and lungry." NOT TOO TEMPTING The experience taught Little Diomeders to keep their distance. Children learn early not o wander too far out on the ice, vhich is their playground for all but four months of the the forbidden isle across the strait does not tempi ,hc Liltle Diomeders much. They know their relatives don't live there probably removed to the Siberian and the only humans on iig Diomede are the handful of Russian sentries. The Russians circle Little Diomede in a speedboat every ummer to reconnoitre the opposite side, but they only occupants of Diomede live in its one v Eskimo Mine in In( snuggles precari against, the cliff on the west of the island in full view a Soviet observation post. By the 1970 census, the viJ has 82 occupants, IS familie related to some degree, represent every able-bo man in the qualifying group. Coal T, The process involves a pre-treatment step which allows it to use any type of coal including varieties which tend to "cake" when heated. The bureau has obtained a patent on this pre-treatment. After pre-treatment, finely ground coal enters a hot gas stream and reacts with oxygen and steam to form methane (the primary ingredient in natural gas) hydrogen and carbon monoxide. After removal of tar, dust, sulphur, and carbon dioxide, the gas is treated with a Gas lyst that forms more methane from the hydrogen and carbon U.S. bureau of mines announced here developm e n t of a new process to convert coal into pipeline quality gas. The bureau said the cost is low enough to justify larger scale tests and an engineering study will be made for a demonstration plant. A pilot study was made at the bureau's energy research centre in Pittsburgh. The process "could prove economic in areas close to plentiful supplies of low-cost coal but short on natural the bureau said. Thief Has Political Aspirations REGINA (CP) Be on the lookout for a thief with political aspirations. Somebody has stolen a brass plaque from the Saskatchewan legislative buildings. The plaque says: "Office of tlis 40 MARTYRS VATICAN CITY (Reuters) -Pope Paul said here 40 English and Welsh martyrs will be canonized Oct. 25 in a special ceremony at St. Peter's Basilica. The Catholic martyrs died during Protestant persecutions in Britain during the 16th and 17th centuries, raising doubts about the wisdom of making !hem saints at a time when both churches are promoting Chris-ian RHYMES AND HOW THEY HAVE CHANGED. Uttl, girls may still be made of sugar and spice but their skipping rhymej these days ore far from nice. Then they only reflect today's changing times with the emphasis on sex crime and violence.
