Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Years of supression over Civil liberties return to Thailand By TILLMAN DUMHN New York Times Service Thailand Civil liberties are flourishing here after years of suppres- sion under the military dic- tatorship overthrown last month in a student uprising. As a result of this new Thailand is having the new experience of per- mitted'public demonstrations and strikes and unfettered public controversy. The student movement that forced out the military regime was confined to Bangkok. Now student groups have sprung up throughout the worker and professional organizations are proliferating and sometimes and newspapers and politicians are revealing in free commentary. Upcountry as well as in Bangkok there are almost dai- ly student demonstrations over some issue or other In rioet province the Chai has been forced out by student agitators as corrupt and too closely linked to the ousted military chiefs. Other provin- cial officials similarly regard- ed are under attack. CAREER In some places university and high-school autorities are being denounced as too authoritarian and academical- ly a few have had to resign. In some courses held unsuited to students' needs are being criticized. In two second-rate Bangkok colleges students have demonstrated to demand that graduates get degrees ranking with those of the best universities. The other day students demonstrated at the Chinese Nationalist embassy over the fact that two of the deposted military Field Marshal Praphas Charusathieni and Col. Narong were being given temporary sanc- tuary in this followed a call at the U.S. embassy by student delegates to protest the presence in the United States of Field Marshal Thanom who was premier in the ousted military government. Both American and Chinese Nationalist officials were able to point out that their granting of visas to the three men had the approval of the new Thai in seems glad to see them out of the country and opposes the student view that they should be brought back to face punishment for misdeeds in office Gen Kris the pre- FOUNDRY WORKERS REQUIRED Wanted immediately foundry workers and labourers.

On the labor Railway workers struck for two days and won virtually all their demands with the government-run transport system granting substantial pay increases and other benefits. Noting that government and school leaders have so far yielded to agitators' some sources have expressed concern that the new freedom may be abused and culminate in excessive demands and concessions. the provisional Sanya taking the view that popular enthusiasm for reform and change should not be has chosen to re- main tolerant. So far demonstrations and demands have been restrained and no serious disruptions have been caused. Some of the student agita- tion has been against the con- tinued presence of American military bases and per- but this has been moderate and reflects a divi- sion in the student .novement on the issue.

It came from perhaps the most beguiling rogue in Cairo His name is Lamyi Ibrahim Ghoneim but he prefers to be known as Canada Dry. Business has been off for Lamyi lately because of the war. He and his camels and horses have been languishing in the shadow of the sphinx and the just lying in wait for the tourists to return mucha lovely He had just about despaired of ever again persuading a North American to pay or so for a quick camel trip along the edge ofttfe aanara when the Canadians 500 of super- arrived. When the first soldiers arrived at Lamyi's house he coddled lied to boasted about' his promised them un- dreamt of delights and swore that he would never think of cheating them out of a single penny. Of course he must make a tiny profit for his services. SCARCITY IN HUMPS Then out to the camels. Take your he told the five soldiers. There were only three beasts in sight. Capt.

BOSTON Scientists say they have made signifi- cant progress in developing a simple blood test for early detection of cancer of the the second most deadly form of cancer. Recently completed clinical trials show that their test is highly the researchers and can aid significantly in diagnosing this cancer of the large intestine. The blood test is able to de- tect colon cancer before the disease spreads throughout the the scientists at the Harvard Medical School Unit of Boston City Hospital report. Colon cancer generally strikes after the age of SO and kills more than 70 per cent of its victims within five years. The disease can be treated with some success if diagnos- ed early. The scientists led by Dr. Da- vid Bull and his assistant Richard note in a report in the journal Science that their blood test positively detected the colon cancer in most cases during the clinical trials. The report says 71 patients were tested in the trials. Of the 27 patients with colon 24 gave s positive response in toe blood test. IMMUNE-SYSTEM TEST The researchers say the test works by measuring the activ- ity of the body's immune sys- which uses an arsenal of antibody molecules and defen- sive cells to attack disease mi- crobes and objects foreign to the body. Bull uys the immune system kills some cancer cells' for some unknown not all of them In a patient's body. the Immune system doss detect ing large numbers of white blood cells called which secrete a chemical when mixed with isolated tumor cells. Bull says that in the newly developed it is concluded that the patient has cancer if his blood contains lymphocytes which secrete the chemical when mixed with a colon tumor extract. The researchers cautioned that the blood test still is ex- perimental and so com- plicated it can only be per- formed by highly trained per- sonnel. Parole rate cut by board SAINT N.B. The chairman of the National Parole Board said today about 45 per cent of prisoners cur- rently applying to the board are granted compared to an acceptance rate of about 85 per cent in 1970. George Street said the board has cut back on its rate of application approvals because violations of parole hive become too frequent. He was speaking it a news conference on the first stop of an Atlantic provinces tour. Most prisoners in Cantdian penitentiaries are eligible for parole after serving one-third of their sentence or seven whichever comes first. Prisoners must serve a minimum nine months. Mr. Street said he favored more control of prisoners leaving penitentiary in su attempt to further reduce the number of those returning to ;
