Saturday, November 7, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 7 Cross, FLQ Reports JVo Comment From Police MONTREAL (CP) Two Montreal newspapers say police have received a photograph of kidnapped British diplomat Police Solve Lost Mail Bags Case OTTAWA (CP) The case pt the 140 hags of mail missing in Montreal has been solved. They were discovered, the post office said Friday, in two surplus trucks hauled mil of storage and re-calJed to service. A press release said Jean- Pierre Cote, minister responsi- ble for the post office, regretted "this imforiunate incident" and wanted to make a "very frank revelation" of the incident as quickly as possible. The mail bags, containing mostly second- and third-class items, were iost at the height of the postal service that occurred across Canada, but especially in Montreal, sev- eral months ago. "The misplaced mail was dis- covered when a need for addi- tional vehicles arose and those JJi storage were examined prior to said the posl off- ice release. The mail will be delivered along with letters of apology from Deputy Postmaster-Gen- eral P. A. Faguy. James (Jasper) Cross and a note from the Front do Libera- tion du Quebec. But official sources said they can make no comment on the reports. Insp. J L. Mclanson of Quebec Provincial Police said: "Our position is that we are not officially confirming or de< nying the reports." The last announced indication that Mr. Cross, kdnapped Oct. 5, is still alive cams in a hand- written letter found in an east- end Montreal church Oct. 18, several hours after police found the body of Quebec Labor Min- ister Pierre Laporte, kidnapped Oct. 30. The Gazette quotes "reliable sources" as saying the photo shows Mr. Cross looking "well and alert" sitting and playing cards on a box apparently con- taining explosives. The Gazette says the photo bears tte written inscription "J. Cross" on the back but it is not known whether il is Mr. Cross' handwriting. The Star says "police con- firmed they arc studying such a photograph. Official spokes- men would not comment, how- ever. OFFICIALS MUM Bill Ashford of the British government information office said: "We're not saying anything. It's a matter for the police." And Jean Berger, justice de- partment spokesman in Quebec City, said neither the depart- ment nor Justice Minister Jer- ome Choquette could make any comment on the report. Since the War Measures Act was proclaimed Oct. 10 and the FLQ was outlawed, a news blackout has been imposed on any eomrmirjH'ations from the terrorist group. Support or pub- licity for the FLQ is illegal. Tlie Star says the photograph was shown to Mrs. Cross. The newspaper also says the photo and note were delivered to the French-language weekly newspaper Quebec Presse which sent it to police. The Star says a Quebec Presse request to publish the photo and communi- cation was refused by Mr, Jus- tice Minister Choqvietle. Officials of the French-lan- guage newspaper could not be reached for comment. The Star also quotes police as saying the note from the FLQ was similar to previous ones and contained "instructions but would not elaborate further. The photo is said to show Mr. Cress wearing a dark, V-neck sweater, a white shirt open at the neck and dark pants. He is clean shaven and neatly groomed. The Gazette says "authorities believe the picture, which is of good quality, was taken re- I cenlly." "It's difficult to estimate if he has lost weight but he looks well and alert."

U.S. Faces Oil Shortage Northern Parley Told Confusion Created In CBC Says Guild OTTAWA CP) The national executive of the Canadian Wire Service Guild says in u letter to legal action." members that it is deeply con- cerned about "the free flow of information at this time" in the CBC. "We urge you to equally freedom of guildsmen by all ferring not to the Canadian means at our disposal, including EDMONTON (CP) Tte United States will be terced to change its coal into gas within five years to alleviate its oil shortage, the National North- ern Development Conference was told. Dr. Douglas Montgomery, head of the Fuels Research Centre in the federal depart- ment of mines, said that within 10 years, the U.S. may have to liquefy coal to supplement its diminishing and unstable 011 supply. To avoid this move, he said, researchers would have to solve most of the problems as- sociated with industrial activi- ties in the Arctic. The great boom the Arctic would encounter meant that emphasis en research had to be in environmental studies. Industrial acitivity ot any kind placed such a stress on the Arctic environment that the tundra's ability to support hu- man life was reduced. limits must be found on what activity th.e Arctic could stand if oil development was to move forward. He said the decision to sus- pend the Manhattan supertank- er venture was a major set- back because it would delay development of shipping neces- sary tor the establishment of mining industries. Moreover the suspension of the Manhattan would delay re- search necessary for the devel- opment of the short route be- tween Asia and Europe via the Northwest Passage.

The guild says confusion has been created in the CBC by the reaction of the corporation's management to the terrorist sit- uation in Quebec and invocation Oct. 16 of the War Measures Act. It says all editorial directives issued by CBC management and said to stem from the War Mea- j sures Act "should be carefully j examined and questioned." i Members should be on guard j against all orders and appeals j for 'restraint' for it is under this j guise that tile most damage can be done to our' integrity and f professiqnal the letter says. It was the guild's responsibil- ity to the public "to make sure there is a completely free flow: of information." The letter said CBC President George Davidson's public state- ment early in the crisis was a "sweeping and misinformed in- diclinent of CBC coverage." The guild had vigorously pro- tested the statement but "Mr. Davidson's reply has done noth- ing to ease our distress." The letter says the Oct. 2J cancellation of the documentary Legacy of Lenin was "an unnec- essary suppression of informa- tion to the Canadian public." Guild members should repor! to the executive any attemplerf suppression of news dealing with events under the War Mea- sures Act regulations or their successor legislation.
