Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunday, Navimbir 1972 THE LETHBBIDGE HERALD 17 KEEPING UP WITH THE NEWS South Vietnamese uldiert, waiting to move up Highway 13 north of Sai- gon, pause to read the latest newi about pence prot- pecti in Indochina. Peron wants to die with shoes on By FENTON WHEELER MADRID (AP) "I prefer to die with my boots on rather than in a hospital bed." So said former Argentine dic- tator Juan Domingo Peron in a rare appearance before report- ers Oct. 4 to announce he would return to Buenos Aires. With his trip back home after what he calls 17 years of "os- the former strong- man is trading the good life of Madrid for the uncertainties of his homeland's politics. At 77, the decision cannot have been easy for him. Still erect and apparently fit, Peron will have to give up the solitary walks, the time for writing his memoirs, and the gracious pace of living he has enjoyed since he arrived in Spain as an exile 12 years ago. In the early years, he lived in a Madrid apartment, where his neighbor was actress Ava Gard- ner. He later moved to Ma- drid's outskirts and the price tag of his mansion was once re- ported to be SEE COMEBACK BID Most Madrid observers see Peron trying a last-chance comeback, but perhaps only to the extent of endorsing someone who can unify Peronist factions and be acceptable to the army. There have' been 17 years of instability in Argentina. Seven governments, most of them mil- itary, have done much to re- store Peron's political status by convincing millions of Argen- tines that he represents a hope for a viable civilian govern- ment. Peron ruled Argentina as dic- tator from 1946 until his over- throw in 1955. He championed the poor, or "shirtless fought the Roman Catholic Church, displayed a flair for balcony oratory in the Mussolini tradition, spent the country's funds lavishly and squelched civil liberties. Many of those poor found in- 409 5lh SI. S. Phone 328-1314 (3rd doer north of the Greyhound Bus Depol) spiration in Peron's glamorous wife, widely regarded as a saint. She was Eva Duarte Peron. Enmity built by years of ruth- less suppression finally provok- ed a bloody revolt that broke him and drove him into exile, to Paraguay, to Panama, to Venezuela, the Dominican Re- public and finally to Spain. REPUTATION AT LOW EBB He was a discredited man then, with little genuine sup- port, stripped of military privi- leges, accused of raping a 14- year-old girl with whom he had been living and ex-communicat- ed by the church. Two months after Peron fled his country, Eva's body dis- appeared from its resting place in the headquarters of the labor confederation in Buenos Aires. The whereabouts of the body re- mained a mystery until Septem- ber, 1971. It had been brought to Italy and was sent from there to him in Spain. Two years ago Perpnists be- gan shuttling to Madrid to urge their leader to return home. The way was clear. As the years went by, he had had his right to a military pensiin re- turned, he was readmitted to the church and married his sec- retary, Isabel Martinez, who proved herself adept at poli- tics. When President Alejandro La- nusse took over Argentina by military coup in 1971, he prom- ised elections would be hel next March and responded t growing pressures by Peronist by removing harriers to the ex dictator's return. 17-year-old candidate caught in legal battle TORONTO (CP) A 17-year- old candidate for public school trustee in Scarborough Borough is caught between opposing le- gal opinions of whether his can- didacy is legal. John Packowski, a student, will be legal age for vot- ers and Dec. 4, election day. Scarborough clerk Clifton Tripp said Tuesday he has re- ceived legal advice saying an eligible candidate must be 18 during the period of enumera- tion, between Sept. 5 and Oct. 10. Mr. Packowski said he was advised by a lawyer that eligi- bility means eligibility on the day voters cast their ballots. The Municipal Elections Act defines an elector as someon who meets qualifications residence, citizenship and ag during the enumeration perioc But Mr. Packowski said the vot ers' list he saw defines the ag requirement as being 18 on or before Dec. 4. Under law, Mr. Tripp coult refuse the nomination only i Mr. Packowslti's 10 nominator failed to meet the statutory re- quirements.

FARNSWORTII New Yurk Tiraej Service GENEVA The poor na- tions, led by delegates from Latin America, clashed with the rich at a conference that set up a tentative schedule for what could potentially be tfie biggest round of negotiations ever for liberalizing world trade. The dispute was fought over the issue of what the poor coun- tries could expect from the new trade talks, which would be opened at a ministerial con- ference next September and could .possibly be concluded in 1975. Five years ago the Kennedy round ended. Named after the late president, it resulted In a one-third cut In tariffs for the major trading countries. But it turned out to be a case largely of the rich helping the rich; al- though the rich had promised better, the poor ended up with crumbs. Refused to answer census questions OTTAWA (CP) Statistics Canada intends to ask Iv an appeal of a Winnipeg court de- cision Monday in favor of a pro- fessor who refused to answer questions for the 1971 census. Vernon L. Button, a 57-year- old professor of civil engineer- ing at the University of Mani- toba, received an absolute dis- charge in magistrate's court after pleading guilty to a charge of refusing to provide in- formation under the Statistics Act. A Statistics Canada offidal said yesterday that the final de- cision on whether the govern- ment will appeal is up to the justice department but "We have every intention of asking for an appeal because a very important question is at stake." Mr. Button had told the Win- nipeg court that the census amounts to an invasion of privacy. MAGISTRATE SYMPATHETIC Magistrate John J. Enns, who granted the absolute discharge, said he sympathizes with Mr. Button. Under an absolute discharge, a person who pleads guilty or is found guilty is nevertheless deemed not to have committed the offence. The charge carries a max- imum penalty of a fine and three three months in jail. The Statistics Canada official said there have been four other prosecutions for refusal to pro- vide census information, with a conviction and small line being imposed in each case. Officials were studying an un- disclosed number of other cases of refusal and deciding whether or not to prosecute. The official said there are DO firm rules on when a prose- cution Is undertaken. Each case was studied separately and the officials looked at the reasons for refusal. Over-all, he said, about 94 per cent of Canadian households re- turned complete census forms. Industrial production index up OTTAWA (CP) The indus- trial production index, measur- ing about one-third of total Ca- nadian output, rose in Sepetni her to 195.2 from 192.4 in Au- gust, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday. The index, based on 1961 pro- duction equalling 100 and ad- justed to smooth out wide fluc- tuations caused by seasonal cli- mate, rose principally because of recovery from recent strikes in iron and mining Mining out- put was up 5.6 per cent for the month. But increases were wide- spread through other elements, including durable and non-du- rable manufactures and the electric power, gas and water utilities, the statistics bureau said. Mrs. Anna Goyeneche, am- bassador of Argentina to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade organization here, and Hernan Santa Cruz, am- bassador of Chile, led the fight at the windup session of the GATT meeting here to try to get far more this time. The contracting parties of the GATT, a n international trade charter signed in 19-17, were meeting here to map plans for the prospective mammoth trade liberalization. Eighty nations are contract- ing parties. An additional 20 countries all poor sent trade officers to the conference, to insure that their interests would be taken into account. MORE BENEFITS There was this summing up by chairman Giorgio Smoquina of Italy: negotiations should aim to secure additional benefits for the international trade of the developing coun- tries so as to achieve a substan- tial increase in their foreign exchange earnings, diversifica- iouon of their exports, ar.d an acceleration of the rate o[ growth of their trade, taking into account their development needs." Smoquina's statement which was supposed to repre- sent an agreed concensus of meeting, also said that the ne- gotiations "shall cover both In- dustrial ancl agricultural prod- ucts, including tropical prod- ucts, and take particular ac- count of the need to find solu- tions to the problems of de- veloping countries. Including the problems of the least de- veloped countries." STAGE FILIBUSTER These statements of Intent were not good enough for the Latin Americans who in effect staged a seven-hour filibuster to try to get a stronger com- mitment from the rich coun- tries. The results of their actions fid little more than dem- onstrate the rasu'veness o[ poor countries because the text of Smoquina's statement went un- changed. The rich countries In effect threatened to withdraw "put a reserve in the language of the conference even tha I concessions that appeared in I the Smoquina declaration.
