Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, November 7, 1972 THE LETHMIDGE HEKAlC 39 Egyptian officer is shot BEIRUT (AP) The Egyp- tian officer who harangued a crowd outside a Cairo mosque Oct. 12, leading to reports abroad of an attempted coup against President Anwar Sadat, has been executed, a Lebanese newspaper reported Monday. The well-informed An Nahar, quoting Arab diplomatic sources, said the execution took place four or five days after the incident. At the time of his arrest Egyptian authorities de- scribed the officer as mentally ill. An Nahar said the officer was Capt. AH Hussein Bid. It gave no details about his trial but said Sadat approved the death sentence despite a cle- mency plea by Gen. Mo- hammed Sadek, who then was Egypt's war minister and' army commander-in-chief. Sadek called on the officer's family after the execution and offered his condolences, arousing the anger of the president, the report saicl. A week later Sadek was fired from all his posts and An Na- har said he has since been placed under house arrest out- side Cairo. The new commander-in-chief, Gen. Ahmed Ismail, later charged his predecessor was guilty of failing to fulfill mili- tary programs set for him by the country's political leader- ship. An Nahar said the captain! was arrested after leading three armored cars through the streets of Cairo to the Al Hus- sein Mosque where he delivered a speech calling lor war against Israel. Ford plans new plant in Taiwan TAIPEI (Reuter) The Ford Motor Co., in a joint ven- ture witli a local automobile manufacturer, will roll out its first vehicle in July, 1973, a spokesman fee Taiwan's eco- nomic affairs ministry said to- day. The Nationalist Chinese gov- ernment approved Ford's million investment project Fri- day after several months of ne- gotiations between Ford and its local partner, the Lio Ho Corp. Under the agreement, Ford will purchase 70 per cent of the stock in the joint venture for million. The remaining million will be made available as long- term investment loans for ex- paiision of production facilities. In addition, Ford will provide million in loans as a revolv- ing fund.

Urges end to battle on bargaining OTTAWA (CP) The presi- dent of the Canadian Construc- tion Association has called for an end to confrontation in col- lective bargaining, saying it is the "quickest to disaster" for both unions and contractors. Eric Hartley told a con- vention of the Provincial Build- ing and Construction Trades Council of Ontario here that both sides must get together to work out solution? to problems even if they arc not popular ones. Otherwise they were inviting government intervention and disaster for themselves. "Surely it's time when Uie confrontation in collective bur- gaining should be abandoned. We are all lasing out by Uie present approach. It's the quickest way to disaster for the unions nnd fair contractors." Mr. Hartley said non-union work in construe! ion is increas- ing in the United States. Unless management and labor work things out in Canada, the same tiling could happen here. Construction industry bar- gaining in will indicate whether a heller relationship between contractors nnd unions can be established, ho said. 2nd Great week Simpsons- Sears Christmas Toy Festival SIMPSONS Zeroid and Solar Cycle with his own solar cycle.
