Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THS IETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturdoy, Moy 30, 1970------ CUPE To Appeal Court Decision On BID Action CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Fri- day will continue to try to orga- Nation Ignores Veterans By MICHAEL BATE OTTAWA (CP) A feeling of "total frustration with lack of progress" in solving veterans' problems infects the dele- gates gathering for the 23rd na- tional convention of the Koyal Canadian Legion, says Pres- dent Robert Kohaly. "We're every bit as good as these young people carrying these placards these Mr. Kohaly said in a pre-convention interview. "We're experts at protesting. We protested in the First World War, the Kaiser found that out. "We did it again in the Sec- ond World War. Hitler found out that we're fair protesters." With that mood of dissatisfac- tion, the six-day meeting will handle about 300 resolutions, the heaviest volume since the late 1940s. The opening business sessions are Monday in the Ottawa Civic Centre after colorful ceremonies Sunday including a parade, being attended by Governor- General Roland Michener. Delegates are angry over the federal government's lack of concern for veterans, Mr. Ko- haly said, and "unless the gov- ernment realizes it" the legion membership will convince the leadership to do s o m e t h i n g about the government's inac- tion. HEASON NOT EFFECTIVE Mr. Kohaly said he didn't ex- pect delegates to be going out on the streets and "protesting or acting violently." But the reasoned, quiet, logical ap- proach has not been effective nd as a result ths national ex- ecutive has been asked to hold "physical protests." "People affected by war have not received a fair share of the effluence that was generated in this country as a result of the service by these Canadians. "The Canadian people simply aren't mindful of the con- tribution made by veterans." Many resolutions will reflect growing impatience among vet- erans over government refusal to increase war disability pen- sions and war veterans allow- ance rajtes. A request for an Interim In- crease of 10 per cent for disabil- ity pensioners and a 15-per-cent Increase in war veterans' allow- ance has been submitted to the government. Other resolutions tie ex- pected to include such items as treatment facilities, change- oyer.of veterans hospitals to ci- vflian authorities, Remembr- ance Dominion Day, na- tional unity and pollution. TRAILER SEE BEE-JAY'S 'Dutch Auction7 On PAGE 20 nize employees of the Eastern Irrigation District in southern Alberta. Don Crabbe, CUPE's west era regional director, told dele- gates the union will appeal court ruling which does no allow CUPE to organize e'm ployees of the Eastern Irriga tion District in southern Al berta. He said the board of indus- trial relations has granted the union certification for irrigation workers, but the board was overruled by the Alberta Su preme Court. CUPE also took a hard line on abuse of drugs. Delegates to the division's an nual convention approved a res olution urging maximum penal ties for traffickers in hare drugs and a general polici on drug use. One delegate suggested drug traffickers would be jailed for life. Another delegate, a former policeman, disagreed. He sail most pushers are just kids and "you won't stop drug trafficking by hitting 15-year-old pushers Distributors will just find an other kid to push." A resolution calling for special abortion clinics staffet by trained non doctors ran into stiff opposition and was re- ferred back to committee. Op- position ranged from charges that abortion is murder to fears that non doctor? would be un- qualified to perform safe abor- tions. Backers of the motion sale clinics are necessary because many doctors refuse to perform abortions and the current law discriminates against working- class women who cannot afford to another country for a legal abortion. Other resolutions approved called for .compulsory govern- ment run automobile insur- ance, fines for industries which pollute air or water, rent con- trols, an increase of a month in the old age pension, with the age requirement reduced to restoration of land damaged by strip mining. Opposes Move To Integrate Native Children BANFF (CP) The presi- dent of the Canadian Associa- tion of Indian and Eskimo Edu- cation says he opposes existing attempts to integrate native children into local schools Rodney Soonias, 29, of the Red Pheasant Reserve near Saskatoon, said the attempts are "by and large a one-way process aimed at making Indians into Btfle brown men." Indians are desperately try- ing to preserve their culture while the federal white paper on Indian affairs is working in the other direction, be said in an interview. Mr. Soonias, working on a masters degree at the Univer- sity of Saskatchewan, said the white paper proposes a "breach of contract" regarding reserves which are the "last vestiges of Indian culture."

Stanfield Ready For Long, Hard Fight WINNIPEG (CP) The con- servative party will fight a number of proposals in the gov- ernment's white paper on tax reform "until closure if neces- Opposition Leader Rob- ert Stanfield said here Friday. Speaking at a luncheon meet- ing of the Canadian Club of Winnipeg, Mr. Stanfield said the Conservative party believes "the implementation of a num- ber of the white paper propo- sals would compromise the fu- ture of Canada." He said there was some sug- gestion that government had worn down opposition to the white paper and that the oppo- nents are apathetic, but added: "My view has always been that the fight against these propo- sals' would be long and ar- duous." The announcement from Prime Minister Trudeau the real purpose of the white paper was to help the poor was "false packaging" because "it deliberately creates among low-income Canadians hopes which the white paper and the government will go on to dis- appoint." While agreeing with the idea of tax reform, he said few Ca- nadians are prepared to give a Wank cheque to any govern- ment, especially since such proposals would provide a vast increase in federal revenues, i The, conservative leader said he wasn't opposed to the prin- ciple of a capital gains tax, but said his party would apply it only to realized gains and "at a maximum rate of 25 per cent instead of the 50-per-cent maxi- mum rate the government wants, plus whatever the prov- inces feel necessary to put on top of that." RIGHT TO BE HEARD The opposition leader sis'- made a plea for discussion to reduce tensions and "restore the ties between the regions the cultural groups and the generations." To bridge the gaps, "we musi find something more than toler ance, because tolerance too of ten turns to mere neglect." "Across all these gaps that have been talking about, we mist recognize each other's goodwill and we must show our own interest in the problems of other he said. Mr. Stanfield said he didn' think the generation gap was unbridgeable and stressed thai "enthusiasm (of youth) and ex- perience (of the older and mid- dle generations) both have their place." Referring to the younger gen- erations, who fought in the two world wars, he said, "It is al too often the young people who pay with their very lives for the policies adopted by their elders. And, paying the price, surely this generation has the right to be heard." Michel, Fernie Compete In 49th Mine Rescue Test NATAL, B.C. (HNS) The 49bh mine rescue competition sponsored by the East Koot- enay Mine Rescue Association Governor Maddox Hits Two Newspapers ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Gov. ester Maddox, claiming two Atlanta newspapers have delib- erately published news stories slanted against him, plans the opening round of a personal campaign against the mange- ment of the Atlanta Journal and the Atlanta Constitution today. "It's the management that's done it and not the rank-and-file Maddox said in an interview. "They manage the news. The management doesn't tell them the reporters) what to write, >ut if it's favorable to the gov- ernor of Georgia, they just refuse to publish it.

Sihanouk Denies He's Communist HONG KONG (Reuters) Norodom Sihanouk, deposed Cambodian head of state, was quoted here as saying he is not a Communist but that com- munism is much better for his people than capitalism. He was replying to questions sent him by an Indian news-, paper, the Indian Express, the New China news agency said. "I am not a he said.

In a statement prepared for a demonstration in protest 0 the CBW program at the Suf field installation, the veteran newspaper and television cor respondent said: The time is overdue t terminate these operation which link Canada with two o the combatant nations in th southeast Asian war and thus weaken our position as a neu tral and potential peacemaker "The argument that Can ada's program is of a pure] defensive nature does not stan up to examination because it i almost impossible to distin guish between the offensive an defensive uses of CBW agents "The Suffield establishment with its acres and its sophisticated scientific equip rcent could be better used as testing ground in the wa against pollution or the war against hunger."

HALE OPTICAL Gary Martin Dispensing Optitiqn COMPANY LTD 307 tlh St. S. 327-71 Ji FARMERS MERCHANTS TRUST 309 7th St. S. at Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Lelhbridge, Medicint Hat, Montreal Membar of Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation synod's ninth annual conven- tion, was the result of a study on drug use set up in February after n congregation in Cam- rose formally asked the church to take a.stand in the matter. The synod's social ministry committee, which carried out the study, Usted what it con- sidered the pros and cons con- cerning the use of marijuana. The cons outnumbered the pros about three-hHme. The commit tee concluded that legalizing marijuana would not solv3 any problems but would only increase them. The committee's recommen- dations, accepted by synod del- egates, called for s thorough public educational program oh the dangers of drugs. The delegates also agreed to ask legislators to seek the co- operation of doctors in estab- lishing clinics where drug users could receive treatment, thera- py and instruction. CLINICS The committee nwommended that laws be revised to make it mandatory for first offenders convicted for using drugs to attend such ctaias for a speci- fied time. "Criminal records should be preserved for those refusing treatment, second offenders, pushers and traffickers, the recommendation said. "It is our belief that while scarring adol- escent lives with severe punish- ment is not a satisfactory de- terrent, nevertheless, use of in- consequential punishment is not a realistic option." Rev.

Author Dies NEW YORK (AP) John Gunther, 68, who was .said to have travelled more miles, crossed more borders, inter- viewed more statesmen, written more books and sold more cop- ies than any other journalist of his lime, died Friday in hospital after a short illness. Gunther became widely known for his book Inside U.S.A. and five similar works spanning the globe, captivating the stay-at-home public with his attention to the offbeat fact. His critics sometimes called Gunther "the master of the once-over-lightly" and "the Book-of-the-Month club's Marco Polo." They claimed his books were too slick ar.d superficial. "They're fun to Gunther said in a frank reply to the criticism, "apd people lika them, but they indeed are su- perficial." He wrote the first "Inside" book about Europe in 1936 and followed it with similar studies of Asia, Latin America, the United States, Africa and Rus- sia.
