Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Navimbtr 1972 THE LCTWRIDGE HHALD Escapee held in Belgrade TORONTO (CP) Srelo Dzambas, the last of 14 prison- ers who escaped from Millha- ven penitentiary near Kingston, Ont., last July, has been ar- rested in Belgrade and may serve his life sentence for mur- der in a Yugoslavian jail. Staff Superintendent Stuart Loree of the provincial police criminal investigation branch said Friday Interpol officials told him of the likelihood of Dzambas serving his term in Yugoslavia. Interpol, the Paris-based temational police organization, notified Canadian police that Dzambras, 25, is in custody on a charge of assaulting his fa- ther. Staff Superintendent Loree said Yugoslavia prefers not to return Yugoslav nationals who commit crimes in other coun- tries but will apply foreign sen- tences if the offences are docu- mented. Dzambas came to Can- ada in I960 and holds only landed-immigrant status here. Dzambas ajid three other men were convicted last April of the 1070 crowbar slaying of dish- washer Trevor Poll, 46, during a Toronto restaurant burglary attempt. He had served only three months of his sentence when he and 13 other prisoners cut through a penitentiary fence during a baseball game. Staff Superintendent Loree said the necessary documents will be sent to Belgrade but it will be a number of weeks be- fore the Yugoslavian decision is known. Ke said Canada would have to consider extraditing Dzambas on the remaining part of the murder sentence if Yjposlavia decided not to apply the serv tence. HARD LINE FOR HIJACKERS Caplain H.

'In water we trust' SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Canadian water resource offi- cials have called for a "spirit of understanding, co-opera- tion and trust" between the United States and Canada in forming a "continental re- source plan."

LLOYDTOWN, Ont. (CP) There is a rebellion brewing in tills hamlet 35 miles north of This time, residents are up- set over the purported lack of government recogr.ilion of one of the original rebels. Lloydlown was named after a lieutenant in William Lyon Mackenzie's rebellion in 1837 and Ihe local historical society thinks the province is playing down Ihe role of founder Jesse Lloyd. After the Ontario govern- ment refused to change the on a historic plaque, the King Township Historical Famed parrot lying in stale in cold storage CARCROSS, Y.T. the world famous Carcross par- rot who died last Monday aged about 125, is lying in state in cold storage until spring. Dorothy Hopcott, P o 11 y's owner at the Caribou Hotel in Carcross, said that the ground is too hard to dig a grave and that final ntes are postponed unlil the spring thaw. Until then, Polly will remain i in a red velvet lined metal j container in cold storage. Society raised S2.500 for a cairn and the restoration of a pioneer cemetery. A plaque dedicated by (lie provincial government Sept. 24, made scant mention of the role of Mackenzie's aide in Ihe rebellion against the family comoaet. In a mealing last week, the society agreed with charges that "politics" played a part in Ihe provincial plaque and decided lo go along with member Bill Poulis' sugges- tion to "dpfy tradition for God's sake." Hence. Ihe society decided to replace (he provincial plaque wilh Iheir own. The society's cairn will stand in a nearby pioneer cemetery, where part of the mil go for restoration of the gravesite of Lloyd's wife. Lloyd died in the United Slates, where he fled in exile after Mackenzie's abortive rebellion. Mackenzie also fled, hut returned to become mavor of Toronto. New Zealanders have week to juggle all the issues By J. C. Graham Canadian Press Correspondent WELLINGTON, N.Z. (CP) With the approach of polling day Saturday, Nov. 25, pundits are wary of predicting the re- sult of New Zealand's triennial general election. The governing National party and the Labor opposition ap- pear likely to fight to a photo finish. Opinion polls have shown the lead fluctuating, with Labor baring a slight edge. The National Party, led by Prime Minister John R. Mar- shall, is a slightly right-of- centre private enterprise party. It holds 44 seats in the 84-scat House of Representatives. La- bor, a slightly left-of-centre party which gives rather per- functory support to socialism, holds the remaining 40 seats. Its leader is Norman E. Kirk. Three new seats will raise the strength of the new House to 87. A record 451 candidates have been nominated but few proph- ets expect that the minor par- ties will gain any seats. CONTEST ALL SEATS National and Labor are con- esting all 87 seats, as is Social Credit, which gained nine per cent of the poll at the last elec- tion in 19C9. But the movement has been rent bv factionab'sm. A rival group, t'ne New Demo- crats, has entered 80 candidates and is likely to split the Social Credit support. It is not likely Uiat either So- cial Credit or the New Demo- crats will win any seats. The fortunes of Social Credit in Ca- nadian provincial elections may not have a big effect, but the movement has denied the inspiration it used to derive from Social Credit successes in Canada. The surprise package among the smaller political movements bar been the Values Party, formed by young idealists who advocate greater priority for the quality of life, protection of the environment and similar ob- jectives. In a lew weeks the new pE..iy has gained sufficient hacking to put up 42 candidates for the election. But although the movement may be compelling the major parties to pay more attention to SASKATCHEWAN FAHMS As of June 1, 1971, there were j farms in Saskatchewan. Kinyland, cJLtd.

Even smaller groups include the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, headed by a man who changed his name to Mickey Mouse. His main platform plank is "free cheese." It has been pointed out, how> ever, that his name will appear on the ballot paper simply as Mouse, since first names are not given on the voting papers unless there is a prospect o[ confusion. Effective competition there- fore is probably confined to Na- tional and Labor. RUNS ON RECORD The National Party has won four successive elections and has held office for 12 years. It is campaigning on its record and its experience in running the country. Labor is campaign- ing on the assertion that it is time for a change. National is making much ot public resentment at frequent industrial strikes, and even of some strikes called for political Peyto acquires Polaris shares CALGARY (CP) Pcyto Oils Ltd. announced yesterday that it has agreed to acquire all the shares of Polaris Oil Ltd., a Calgary-based private oil and gas exploration com- pany. purposes, such as the trade un- ion ban on handling French ships and aircraft for some weeks this year as a protest against French nuclear tests in the South Pacific. National al- leges that the political wing of Labor is under the domination of the industrial section of the movement. Labor has laid heavy empha- sis on a wide range of improve- ments in housing, employment, education and social security. National retorts that the prom- ises would result in heavy in- creases in taxation. Prime Minister Marshall, 60, fighting his first election as leader, has made a rather nesitant start to the campaign. Most observers believe that La- bor's Kirk made a more im- pressive opening. But the campaign has been slow to warm up. A real issue LO arouse the emotions of the voters could yet bring a swing either way. SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT TOLLESTRUP SAND AND GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd.
