Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 16, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Farm machine institute coming to college in '75 Kinal arrangements have been completed to begin organizing a branch of the Agricultural Machinery Institute at the Lethbridge Community College. Les Reid of Edmonton, acting director of the family farm division for the department of agriculture and vice-chairman for the Agriculture Machinery Institute Council, said this week he has notified LCC president C. D. Stewart that staff members will be hired and facilities at the college will be readied for the institute early in 1975. The institute, with headquarters in Hum- bo Idt, Sask., scheduled for construction starting Nov. 21, will have satellite centres at Lethbridge and an as yet unnamed centre in Manitoba. Jack Peck ha? been named director of the institute, which will be responsible for func- tional and performance evaluation of farm equipment. Final budget plans for the institute will be completed at a meeting in Humboldt this week, said Mr. Reid. Mr. Reid said no new construction will be needed at the community college because of the excellent facilities present. Lethbridge was selected as the Alberta site because of the wide variety of land types and specialty crops which need different types of farm equipment in the district. In addition to equipment testing, the in- stitute in all three centres will deal with prototype testing, development of new machines, official testing and servicing, technical information, safety and health stan- dards, standardization of machines and parts and basic research through co-operation with manufacturers and farmers. A Lethbridge farmer has been named to the institute council, one of three farmer representatives on the council from each of the participating provinces. John Murray of Lethbridge will serve on the council with Mr. Reid as Alberta govern- ment representative. A. M. Whitton of Calgary, regional manager for Massey- Ferguson Industries Ltd. will serve as farm machinery manufacturing representative from this province.

"All we are asking, really, is that the principles of the charter be applied to us as well as to other said Saadat Hassan, the PLO's New York representative. He contended that charter provisions upholding the prin- ciples of equal rights, self- determination and self- defence entitled the Palestinians to fight for the land and homes they lost when Israel was founded. "I don't know anything in the charter that says all the people should lead a normal life in their homelands except the people of he said. Hassan would not discuss the terms of the resolution ex- cept to say it was not yet ready and probably would not be submitted to the assembly before Tuesday. SAYS OK GIVEN But other Arab sources said a working group composed of Egypt, Jordan. Syria, the PLO and others had drawn up the basis of a resolution that had been approved in principle by foreign ministers or ambassa- dors of 20 Arab countries at a private meeting here Friday. A key Arab diplomat said the text would have the assembly support the right of the people of Palestine to repatriation. self- determination and national independence as well as the struggle for other rights "by all means within the charter" of the UN. Zuhayr Al-Mufti. Jordanian foreign affairs minister, made those points in a speech to the assembly Friday as "fun- damental principles" for settling the Palestine question, which the assembly- is debating. He welcomed the PLO leadership to the assembly debate, opened Wednesday by guerrilla chief Yasser Arafat. and said Jordan's 20 year old responsibility for the Palestinians "now devolves upon our brethren" in the PLO.

The Beirut newspaper As Safir said the French govern- ment warned Syria that Israel might strike today. The paper gave no source for its report. Safari said the French re- ported Israeli moves suggesting a possible ground, air and naval offensive. In Pans, a French foreign ministry described the Safir report as "baseless" and French officials privately scoffed at the story. In Damascus, a Syrian gov- ernment spokesman accused Israel of deliberately'es- calating tension in the Middle East to "deflate domestic anger over deteriorating economic conditions." Al Moharrer predicted an Israeli attack soon on south Lebanon. The paper quoted villagers as saying Israeli kib- butzes were evacuated and no workers were in the fields Thursday or Friday. MORE PATROLS Military sources in South Lebanot. reported seeing more Israeli border patrols than usual. British officials said in Lon- don Friday night that a "lim- ited mobilization of Israeli forces" was under way. The report followed charges by Israeli Premier Yitztak Rabin that 20 Soviet ships were unloading weapons in the Syrian port of Latakia. Rabin accused Moscow of encouraging Syrian aggres- sion by providing Damascus with massive arms supplies. State Secretary Henry Kissinger of the United States said Friday in Washington that military moves in the Middle East were being checked "on an urgent and that he and President Ford had reviewed possible contingencies with Defence Secretary James Schlesinger. Kissinger said in "our judgment." however, he believes there was no danger of an imminent Middle East conflict.

Women's lib protest staged ROME (AP) A midi- skirted young woman waved a poster that sneered: "Honor your father and get your mother to do the dirty work." Young girls in jeans shouted "Communism, Feminism, Communism, Feminism" and walked side by side with elegantly-dressed ladies and elderly women in black. It was Rome on Wednesday night, and the demonstration signaled the spread of women's lib south through Europe and its ex- plosion in the male bastion of Italy. The demonstrators chanted "enough with exploitation" as they marched th.-vUgh the streets demanding urgent re- forms of Italy's family laws. The reforms have won the support of Italy's powerful la- bor unions, and if approved would give wives full equality under the law and ensure legal rights for illegitimate children "Italy's existing family law is a 19th-century creation." said Lucia Saccucci, a factory worker who travelled 400 miles to Rome for the protest. "It demands that a girl follow her husband wherever he goes, even if he is an idle good-for-nothing and she is the breadwinner, bound by her work to their home town." JOINED BY MEN The demonstration, swelled by hundreds of men, spanned both the social spectrum and the generation gap. The protesters gathered to criticize inaction over reform proposals submitted to the government in 1967. The measures went to the Senate in 1972 and have languished there Feminist groups have sprung up in Italian cities over the last few years, although recent statistics show that about 80 per cent of Italian women still consider themselves housewives.
