Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Low tonight 30 High Thursday 50 The lethbridge Herald RIGHT ON TARGET FOR 1973 VOL. LXV No. 291 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS FIVE SECTIONS 64 PAGES HUTTERITE COLONIES FREEDOM OF THE SLOPES The vision was great: leaving a Irail across unmarked powder slopes, bounding over obstacles, zigging around trees and zagging past crevices. But for three- year-old Brenl Brooker of Calgary il was only a dream when he grabbed his short skis and headed for the lowline just wesl of the city. The "no jumping" sign was confusing, the "no zig- ging" queslionoble and Ihe "no nothing" dis- couraging. There was nothing else lo do but head for home. After all there was no snow, Embattled heights said quiet but tense Four expected to contest SC leadership By Greg McINTYRE Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Four hopefuls are likely to be In the running for the leadership of the Social Credit party to be decided at a convention here Feb. 1 to 3.

Dr. Buck, a Fort Saskatchewan dentist, says hs will announce his ambitions Dec. 6. He said wneLlier to seek the leadership is a major decision involving dropping his dental practise to devote full time to politics. Mr. Clark said he will make a statement lalcr this week. Harry Strom, leader of the pally thai went down to defeat at the hands of the Loughced conservative campaign in 1971. will step down after 20 years in the house, but continue to sit us the MLA for Cypress unlil Ihe next provincial election. Mr. Clark has a large measure of support inside the 24-member Alberta caucus which is likely to swing some weight at the February convention.

Mr. Schmidt, defeated in Edmonton, Bcl- monl by labor minister Bert Ilohol in 1971, will be hampered in his leadership ambition by not holding a seal in Ihp legislature.

From Al'-RELTER The Israeli army sealed off the Golan Heights again today and kept its troops there on full alert in the wake of their big battle with Syrian forces Tues- day. The Israeli command said the plateau, which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 war, was "cuiet but tense." Damascus radio called on all Arab governments to join with Syria in repelling Israeli ag- gression and pledged that Syria "will retaliate against any ag- gression with a tougher one, ir- respective of sacrifices." The commentary showed Syria in an angry mood towards oilier Arab countries over what was seen as their lack of in- itiative in the face of recurring Israeli attacks on Syrian terri- tory. ADMITS SHELLING An Isaeli commander admit- ted shelling six civilian villages to make examples of them dur- ing the battle with SjTian forces Tuesday. He said he was acting on orders from higher up. Tlie slielling was intended "to give the Syrians a signal that they should stop shelling our ci- vilian a senior commander told reporters vis- iting the batlle zone on the Go- Ian Heights. "We made about 20 to 30 hits Inside the villages. Who lives in them? Poor people." The eight-hour air, lank and artillery batlle along the Golan plateau Tuesday ended at dusk. Jl was Ihe second this month and one of the heaviest ex- changes along tlie frontier since the 1967 war. Israeli planes launched the at- tack, which the Israeli com- mand said was in retaliation for the planting of mines in the Go- lan Heights by Palestinian guer- rillas from Syria. Israel said it shot down six Syrian jets and destroyed 15 tanks. It also reported direct hits on three guerrilla encamp- ments and two division head- quarters as deep as 50 miles in- side Syrian territory. Syria acknowledged the loss of two aircraft and said three Israeli jets, 14 tante and eight fortified positions were knocked out. The Israeli command de- nied it lost any planes or tanks.

Moreover, NATO nations first wanted lo see greater progress made over the Berlin problem and in olher negotiations on East-West detente. Only Albania, wliich is China's closest ally, has refused lo accept neutral Finland's imitation lo the prep- aratory talks.

Taylor labels them slavery By GREG McINTYHE Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON -Gordon Tay- lor. 32-year veteran Social Credit MLA, went down swinging Tues- day as the legislature gave final reading to the Communal Prop- erty Repeal Act ending 30 years of discriminatory legisla- tion against Hutterile.-. Mr. Taylor charged that Hut- lerite colonies arc 'commun- ism and a mild form o[ slavery' because, he claimed, there is no freedom of speech, assembly or religion. "I abhore the way the report favored the Hutterites over others who made representa- pointing to the report of a legislative committee which, earlier this month, recommend- ed repeal of the Communal Properties Act. "I hope the Hutteriles aren't going to head for the best land because if they do there are going to be some terrible days he declared in a short, but impassioned, speech. The report of the communal property committee, however, said relations between Hutler- ites and other Albertans have improved during recent years. Mr. Taylor was the lone speaker on final reading of tho repeal act Tuesday night as MLAs pushed through a list of bills in the last week of the fall session of the House. Included in the bills approval an amendment to the leg- islative assembly act permit- ting pay increases for all mem- bers. Henry Ruste (SC-Wainright) was one of six opposition mem- bers who spoke against Hie in- creases recommended by an independent commission, saying the government has a responsi- bility to decrease the costs of administration, not to increase them. "Under the previous govern- ment, there was a total of some for the year and that covers the sessional indemnit- ies, the speaker's allowance and so he said, referring to the 1970 session before So- cial Credit was upset by the Progressive Conservatives. "Un- der the new set up, it's 500. Ralph Sorensen (SC-Sedge- wick-Coronation) said he has a tough lime explaining to his farm neighbors why his annual legislature income is being in- creased to from S7.200. The increases were hard lo justify when many Albertans were living in poverty, he said. Jim Henderson (SC-Wetaski- win Lcduc) was the one Op- position MLA who spoke in fav- our of the bill. "I can't go along with the ar- guments that ths level of remun- eration to the executive council is he said. "It just doesn't make sense, if you expect to have people that are going to lake an inter- est in public life, that they have lo make a significant sacrifice to be a member of this assem- bly. Let's face it, there are t lot of people in the house who have made money in excess of what they're getting now as a member. "I quite frankly find it diffi- cult lo accept the argument that because I have some con- stituents living in poverty, I have to opt lo do the same or any member has to opt to do the same." Sykes brands Olympics circus CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykes asked Calgary res- idents Tuesday not lo support the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. "We shouldn't spend money on a circus when we can't look after the elderly or sick, it's irresponsible. "The federal government has made a clear commitment that Montreal will not receive federal funds and my priori- ties are the put people ahead of these circuses." He also said at a news conference that he has received a letter from Ottawa asking Calgary to consider the 1976 Winter Olympics and will pass it to council in due time. Ke added, however, that voting lo bid for the games would be "the worst thing I could do for Ihis community.'1 "We don't need the Olympics now or anytime, we don't need Ihe environmental and ecological disasler." Cities find jlace to air problems By BOB DOUGLAS TORONTO (CP) Canadian municipalities, by means ol (.he first tri-level conference which ended here Tuesday, have found a place to air their national forum they shared on an equal footing with the fed- eral and provincial govern- ments. A second tri-level conlerence will be held before the end of 1S73 following a compromise agreement reached Tuesday afternoon. The solution was worked out by conference chair- man Senator Carl Goldenberg of Montreal, a well-known labor conciliator. The agreement also provides Tor tri-level consultations on a Mayor calls for vigilantes on every corner regional level. Thess dis- cussions would deal with urbei problems in a specific province or group of provinces. The decisions were termed "historic" by Urban Minister Ron Easford, Fraser Mooney, Nova Scotia minister of municipal affairs, and Mayor D. G. New-man of Whitby, Ont They were chairmen the fed- eral, provincial and municipal delegations respectively. The municipal and federal delegations appeared to givi the least round in the two-day conference. The provincial group, though not seemed cool to further tri-level talks as the conference opened. While the general provincial brief did not close the door la further tri-levcl conferences, it. suggested municipal could best be handled by thf annual conference of provincial municipal affairs ministers.
