Tuc.rfny, Moy JO, 1971 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD 23 Communist Lang explains rail car decision defending Angela Davis SAN JOKE, Calif. (AP) The five defence invcslifialors at (he Angela Davis trial are members of the Comrminisl parly and function as a collective. Unlike investigators at most criminal trials, they are respon- sible lor organizing and running a worldwide campaign to free MUs Davis. They have travelled tens of thousands of miles speaking and raising money for Miss Davis' defence. They have organized rallies, statements and helped prepare a weekly account of Miss Davis' rmirdcr-kidnap-con- spiracy trial proceedings. And they hove decided what Miss Davis should whom she should meet in her Umiled freo time. Like other Investigators, (hey also have quesltoned prospec- tive witnesses and discussed de- fence strategy with Miss Da- vis's lawyers. They are all friends to Miss Davis long before the 28-year- old former philosophy instructor was accused of furnishing four guns end helping plot an abor- tive courthouse escape al the Mann County Civic Centre Aug. 7, 1970, which ended in four deaths. Two of the Davis's Brandt welcomes results of Nixon's Moscow visit I'Ci'f VVyl Chancellor Willy Brandt told Iho opening session of Ihc NATO foreign ministers today that ajiy agreement v.'itli tlie Russians lo reduce troops in Europe "should noi. bring any military disadvan- tage for cither side." Brandt welcomed Llic results of President Nixon's visit lo Moscow, saying that Ihc "elimi- nation of confrontation and. as President Nixon put it. turning confrorlalion lo co operation, can but have favorable effects for us all and therefore for the alliance." The West German chancellor addressed the opening of the an- nual two-day spring meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Or- ganization's foreign ministers. Earlier in the day, U.S. Secre- tary William Rogers met with Brandt and told him of Nixon's mission Lo Moscow, including his agreement with the Rus- sians that the European secu- rity conference which Moscow has been urging should he div- ided into separate conferences oa East-West cooperation and on troop reductions. Brandt told the NATO minis- ters that a "security conference should serve to explore the paths of co-operation between East and West and in doing so should not ignore the military aspects." Brandt, speaking In the close- ly-guarded chamber of the fed- civil republic's lower house, itemed Lo he taking aim at youthful anti-NATO protesters in his own country when he re- marked that the younger gener- ation tends to take prosperity and freedom for granted. "It's not easy to prove (to young people) that peace calls for sacrifices, and why.'1 PRUDENCE NEEDED Other speakers stressed what they termed the need for prud- ence as well as optimism in coming relations with the Com- munist East NATO Secretary-General Jo- seph Luns told the NATO minis- ters that they must keep in mind that "Soviet offers of de- ten t e notwithstanding, the j steady build-up of Soviet mili- lary power is being relentlessly I pursued." Luns said of the proposed East -W e s t conferences that "what matters above all is that these talks should be conducted in a spirit of give and take and not in the hope of wrestling uni- lateral concessions from the other side." sister, Fania Davis Jordan, 24, and franklin Alexander, are co-chairman of the Naitonal United Committee to Free An- glea Davis and All Political Prisoners and act as chief spokesman for her defence, doing the bulk of the travelling I and public speaking. Franklin's wife, Kendra Alex- ander, 25, is the National United Committee's permanent repre- sentative at the trial, acting as liaison between llic defence committee and the legal staff. She usually sits with Miss Davis and often is mistaken for her. The Alexanders arc perhaps Miss Davis' closest friends. Charlene Mitchell, 41, the Communist party's presidential candidate in I960, Is executive secretary of the National United Committee and runs its San Francisco office, which over- sees activities of 200 "Free An- gela" committees around the world. The fifth investigator, Bcltina Apthcker Kurzweil, 27, daughter of chief Marsist theoretician Herbert Apthel.'er, said she writes "almost all" of Miss Da- vis's statements. She also is re- sponsible for contacts with con- gressmen, labor unions and the national peace movement and organized the May 20 anti-war and "Free Angela" rally here. "We function as a collective." said Mrs. Kurzweil, the only white investigator. OTTAWA (CP) Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Ca- nadian wheat board, said Mon- day differences between the railways and elevator compa- nies resulted in Ihe government ordering railway hopper cars to improve luturc move- ments of grain. New labor temple to he biiilt CALGARY (CP) Organiz- ed labor in the city is planning to improve its image with a million office and conven- tion centre to serve as unions' headquarters. R. T. Flack, president of Cal- gary Labor Temple Co. Ltd., said the building has been planned for several years. "We have been looking for something to enhance the image of labor." The building, a 35 slorcy, oftngonal tower, would be con- structed in conjunction with Plaza 8C Debelopments Ltd. and would also contain retail and hotel space. Tf the plans for 8th Ave. and flth St. southwest are approved, construction could begin this year with completion m late 1974. The Labor Temple Co. now operates a smaller building which contains offices for labor and trades councils and several unions. The purchase. lor S42 million, was announced in Winnipeg Fri- day by Prime Minister Trudcau. Mr. Lang told the Commons there wore "clear difficulties" in persuading the elevator com- panies and railways that up to nine billion bushels of grain could be moved- Rather than allow these differences to result in a slowdown of grain, the gov- ernment had decided to make the purchase. lie told All Cleave Sakafoon-Biggar) that the exact financial relationship be- tween the government and the wheat board hasn't been worked out. But the government would ultimately reimburse the board for the price of the cars and they will be operated by the railways. There was no direct reply when Mr. Gleave asked whether the railways will be required to pay for the use of the cars. But he said it is "very much our in- tention" to ensure that the cars will be additional to the railways' normal rolling stock. He fold Conservative Leader Robert Stanfleld there were "very firm discussions" on this Ixjlween the. railways and the wheat board. T. C. Douglas (NDP-Nanai- mo-Cowichan-Thc Islands) asked assurance1 that any subsi- dization to Ihc railways through use of the cars he returned to farmers in the form ol lower freight rales. Mr. Lang said thai Hie discus- sions were based on the belief that all possible benefits should flow back to grain producers. Mr. Lang added outside the House that Iho new hopper cars are much simpler to load and unload than boxcars currently used. They can therefore move grain to slu'pping points more quickly and should pay for themselves. The 100 million more bushels that could be moved each year mlh the new hoppers would more than pay for the initial S42 million. He said the first of the cars should be available by about the end of August and added that all "housekeeping" who will pay for the cars' main- lenance and be worked out by then. Mr. Lang said that while the (JJojtkmAr TV'S DEBUT Remember what happened on June 1, 1952? No?

Purchase ol the cars, Mr. Lang said, would mean savings fir some wheat farmers, Lbc- wheat board or Ihc railways, But as to jusl who would benefit, he said that "is subject for negotiations."
