Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBR1DGE HE-RAID Saturday, Noveniboi 14, 1770 r WHAT'S NEW, PUSSYCAT?

The Yippie (Youth Party In- ternational t leaders loft North- ern Ireland voluntarily. They vere driven to the plane in a police patrol wagon.

Cory Martin Dispensing Optician 107 St. 327-7132 Rubin and Albert were seized by Belfast police Friday as they left a news conference in a stu- dent's back-street apartment. The two were picked up be- cause they had overstayed their permission to remain in Britain a week. They backed down on a threat lo defy British authori- ties. No deportation order was issued after they agreed to leave of their own accord. Both gave a clenched-fist saluta as they boarded the plane. So ended the Americans' ad- mitted campaign bid to bring revolution to Britain. The London Sun said In a front-page editorial: "Good riddance." Britain, The Sun, said, has had enough of "the antics of Kubln and Ms foul-mouthed 'revolutionaries.'"

Hie board agreed that a lim- it of in 17 faculties and schools is the optimum number that present and proposed fa- cilities will be able to handle. The report was requested by the Alberta government which asked all secondary constitu- tions in the province to deter- mine where and when new fa- cilities could or should be built. The university board said the report is simply a guideline to be used in projections of enrol- ment by various faculties and is not a blueprint for the way the division of students should be made. There are students en- rolled at the university at pres- ent. Two federal byelections Quebec in MONTREAL (CP) Two federal byelections take place iu this province Monday but the War Measures Act does not ap- pear to be an issue in either. Unemployment is an issue in Labelle riding, north of Mont- real, whore Liberals are fight- ing to retain the seat left vacant when former defence minister Leo Cadieux resigned to become Canadian ambassador to France. In Frontenac, more than 100 miles east of Montreal, a major issue hasn't developed but Lib- erals are waging a determined fight to break the Creditiste grip on the riding. Mr, Cadieux won Labelle by votes in 1868, but Liberal candidate Maurice Dupras may have trouble holding this com- fortable margin. Unemployed workers demonstrated when Re- gional Expansion Minister Jean Marchand campaigned recently at St. Jerome for Mr. Dupras. Conservative candidate Paul Gelinas, 45, a lawyer from Ste. Agatha des Monts, and Andre. Ouellette, 29, a teacher active hi the new Creditiste northern part of the riding, are cheered by this demonstration. But Mr. Du- pras, 47, a St. Jerome insurance broker and Liberal organizer, says his main opponent is voter apathy. Two sides to machinery woes says royal commission probe EDMONTON (CP) Farm machinery manufacturers, their dealers and farmers must work together to appreciate and un- derstand each other's problems, N. B. MacDonald, research director of the royal commis- sion on farm machinery, said Friday. Mr. MacDonald told a one-day seminar on torn machinery costs that Ute increased under- standing of the Intel-dependency of the'three groups "may be the most lasting contribution made by the royal commission on farm machinery." "Any set of studies and re- ports on such a dynamic indus- try must therefore become ob- solete He said. Mr. MacDonald declined to Blast rocks offshore oil rig NEW ORLEANS (AP) An explosion rocked a Humble Oil Co. offshore platform, 27 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico, Fri- day night and injured 14 men. A piece of equipment on the platform's deck exploded and injured the workers, a Humble spokesman said. There was no explosion inside the platform and no fire. He said there was tio connec- tion between the explosion and government charges filed Fri- day against Humble contending that the company did not have sub-surface safety valves in- stalled on 33 of Ms Gulf plat- forms. The devices nre designed to stop the flow of oil in the event of a problem on the plat- form, such as fire or blowout. A Nsw Orleans hospital said two of the injured were in criti- cal condition, two fair and four good. The condition of the other six who were at hospital in Haceland was unavailable. Helicopters flew the injured to St. Ann's Hospital in Eaceland, La., about 65 miles southwest of here, then brought eight to a suburban New Orleans hospital. OIL FLOW STOPPED Oil production on the platform was stopped immediately and little, if any, oil spiled into the Gulf, the Humble spokesman said. Humble was the second major oil producer charged by federal authorities as the result of an investigation after a fire and massive oil spill from a Chev- ron Oil Co. platform earlier tMs year off the Louisiana coast. Chevron was fined million after pleading "no contest" to 500 of the 900 violations with which it was charged. say when the final report of the commission would be released. "The detailed editorial check- ing, translation and printing is slow on something so he said, adding that there are more than pages. J. C. Staigcr of Toronto, sen- ior vice-president of Masscy- Fcrgnson Ltd., said during a panel discussion on the cost of purchasing farm machinery that any suggestion that lu's firm is attempting to "exploit the Canadian farmer is both un- founded and irresponsible." He said free-market competi- tion determines the price of (arm machinery in Canada. Referring to Die commission's special report on prices issued last January, Mr. Slaiger said some of the commissions esti- mated production costs are "highly suspect." errors were in turn com- pounded by the fact the com- mission also underestimated lire cost of distribution and service in a widely-dispersed market such as he said. HAS NO CONTROL Neville Hopcr of Ponolsa, past president of the Alberta Retail Implement Dealers' Associa- tion, said the dealer is a middle man and has no control over the cost of the product he sells. "There is room for improve- ment in dealer-manufacturer re- he added. He said commissions paid to dealers on machinery were rel- atively unchanged during the last few years while operating and labor costs for dealers in- creased between 17 and 23 per cent. wheat ban OTTAWA An export ban on Nccpawa wheat, placed on the grain when it was li-. censed to 1969, will be lifted Feb. 1, 1S71, Agriculture Minis- ter It. A. Olson announced Fri- day. Seed stocks of Neepawa, hard red spring wheat variety, have increased beyond esti- mated seeding requirements for next spring. Removal of the em- bargo will allow surplus seed to be exported. The embargo was placed on the new grain to allow Canadian farmers ample supplies of seed. Neepawa was developed by the agriculture department In 1969. Amelia executed TOKYO (AP) A Japanese woman who once lived1 on Sai- pan Island has reported she ov- erheard Japanese military po- licemen telling her father thai American flyer Amelia Earhart was executed as an American spy on the Pacific island in 1937. The statement was made Thursday by Mrs. Michiko Sug- ita, 44, whose father also was a policeman. It followed claims by two former U.S. Air Force officers that Miss Earhart die not die when her plane disap- peared over the Pacific in 1937 and that she now lives in New Jersey. Mrs. Sugita said she woulc like lo believe the claim but am afraid what I heard on Sal- pan was probably the truth." She said military policemen mentioned the execution while drinking at her house in Saipan with lisr father. Her father Mrs. Sugita said, warned her not to mention the execution to anyone. Her fattier, Mikio Su zuki, died in October, 1944.

Socreds to woo Que. counterparts VANCOUVER (CP) Brit- ish Columbia Social Creditors .Friday voted for closer rela- tions with their Quebec coun- terparts, Real Caouette's Ral- liement des Creditistes. The B.C. Social Credit league at its annual convention en- dorsed a resolution providing for appointment of a league representative to the Quebec Creditistes. Delegates argued that Mr. Caotiette and lu's followers, the only Social Credit group in the House of Commons, have the same aims as west coast Social Creditors, namely fighting in- ternational finance. CAPRI COMING The resolution also noted the national Social Credit associa- tion which the Creditistes split off from is no longer in exis- tence and that there has been no national activity to forward the movement in past years.

Mr. Gaglardi, much1 criti- cized by labor and citizens' groups for his hardline stand on welfare, told delegates after they applauded and cheered him: "Thank you so much for strengthening our hand, I ap- preciate it." The resolution they voted for demands that welfare re- cipients who are healthy and ab'c to work should be given jobs and made to work for their welfare payments.
