Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Low tonight 30 High Thursday 50 The LetHbridge Herald RIGHT ON TARGET FOR 197S VOL. LXV No. 291 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, iMi. PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS. FIVE SECTIONS 64 PAGES HUTTERITE COLONIES FREEDOM OF THE The vision was great: leaving a trail across unmarked powder slopes, bounding over obstacles, zigging around trees and lagging past crevices. But for three- year-olcl Brent Brooker of Calgary it was only a dream when he grabbed his short skis and headed for the towline just west of the city. The "no jumping" sign was confusing, the "no zig- ging" questionable and the "no nothing" dis- couraging. There was nothing else to 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 tn the running for the leadership of the Social Credit party to be decided at a convention here Feb. 1 to 3. Gordon Taylor, opposition house leader and dean of the legislature, and Werner Schmidt, vice-president of Lethbridge Community College, have already de- clared they will run. Bob Clark, former Socred education minister and MLA for Olds-Didsbury, and Walter Buck, a contest- ant in the last leadership race in 1968 and MLA for Clover Bar, have scheduled news conferences to an- nounce their intentions after the fall session of the legislature adjourns. Dr. Buck, a Fort Saskatchewan dentist, says h9 will announce his ambitions Dec. 6. He said wnelher 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 later this week. Harry Strom, leader of the party that 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 until the 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. Dr. Buck, on the other hand, has some support remaining from the last convention which he feels could win him the leadership if he decides to run. A fifth possible1 candidate i.s Roy Wilson, MLA for Calgary Bow, who 1ms been considering the leadership but i.s likely In bow out inter Ibis week. Mr. Schinirll. so far, has the most-declared support with Rny Speaker, a former Socred cabinet minister, Bill Johnson, president of the Alberta Socinl Credit League, Bill Wysc, MLA for Medicine Hat-Kcdclif'c and Buckwell, MLA for Maclecid in his camp.

From AF-REUTER 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 "ouiet 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 other 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 Syrian forces Tuesday. He said he was acting on orders from higher up. The shelling was intended "to give the Syrians a signal that they should stop shelling our ci- vilian a senior commander told reporters vis- iting the battle zone on the Go- lan Heights. "We made about 20 to 30 hits inside the villages. Who lives in them? Poor people." The eight-hour air, tank and artillery battle along the Golan plateau Tuesday ended at dusk. It was the second this month and one of the heaviest ex- changes along the 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 tanks and eight fortified positions were knocked out. The Israeli command de- nied it lost any planes or tanks. Preparations progress for security conference By MOSIU ALI HELSINKI (Reuterl En- voys of 34 countries began the laborious task today of pre- paring for a European security conference which has repeat- edly been proposed by the So- viet Union.

But NATO members withheld their agreement to hold prepa- rata-y discussions because the original Warsaw pact proposal excluded the United States and Canada from the conference. Moreover, NATO nations first wanted lo see greater progress made over the Berlin problem and in other negotiations on East-West detente. Only Albania, which is China's closest Eu-opean ally, lias refused to accept neutral Finland's invitation to the prep- aratory talks. The Albanians were reported to have said lhat. real security in Europe could not be brought about though conferences organized by the two super United States and the Soviet Union. SR'ST DECIDE DETAILS Informed diplomatic sources said the task of the ambassa- dors at the p-eparatory talks will be lo decide Ihc site, li mu- table, official languages and agenda for the conference.

Peace talks resume PARIS (CP-AP) Henry Kissinger resumed his Vietnam peace talks with Hanoi's ton ne- gotiators today after an over- night trip to Brussels and an hour-long talk with President Suharto of Indonesia. U.S. President Nixon's secur- ity adviser and the North Viet- namese politburo member. Le Due Tho. went into the third meeting of their secret peace talks. They met in the same subur- ban villa, the property of the French Communist parly, where they conferred for 5U hours Monday and 4'i hours Tuesday. Indonesia is one of four coun- tries that have been asked to supervise the ceasefire Kissin- ger and Tho are trying to work out. Presumably the U.S. presi- dential adviser went to Brussels to discuss this with Suharto, who is on a torn1 of European capitals. Kissinger and Tho met for Tuesday night after his second meeting with Tho. He returned to Paris in mid-morninp. Kisinger and Tho met for more than four hours Tuesday at a suburban villa owned by the French Communist party. As usual there was no concrete information on their dis- cussions. White House press secretary Ronn'd Z'oglcr said in Washing- ton Kissinger had cabled re- ports to President Nixon Mon- day and Tucsdav ;md the presi- dent "communienled back in him by cah'e.1' roared to discuss the contents of the cables.

Taylor labels them slavery By OREO 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 Hutterites. Mr. Taylor charged that Hut- terite colonies are 'commun- ism and a mild form of slavery' because, he claimed, there is no freedom of speech, assembly or religion. "I abhore the way the report favored the Hulterites 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 Hutterites 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 properly committee, however, said relations between Hutter- ites and other Albertans have improved during recent years. Mr. Taylor was the lone speaker on final reading of the 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 was 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 the 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 tie new set up, it's 500. Ralph Sorensen (SC-Sedge- wick-Coronationl said he has a tough time explaining to his farm neighbors why his annual legislature income is being in- creased to from S7.200. The increases were hard to justify when many Albertans were living in poverty, he said. Jim Henderson (SC-Wetaski- win Leduc) was the one Op- position MLA who spoke in fav- our of the bill. "I can't go along with the ar- guments that the 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 take an inter- est in public life, that they have to make a significant sacrifice to be a member of this assem- bly. Let's face it, there are a 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 to accept the argument that because I have some con- stituents living in poverty, I have to opt to 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 to support the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. "We shouldn't spend money on a circus when we can't look afier 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- lies are the I 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 to bid for the games would be "the worst thing I could do for this community." "We don't need the Olympics now or anytime, we don't need the environmental and ecological disaster." Cities find to air problems By BOB DOUGLAS TORONTO (CP) Canadian municipalities, by means of the 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 conference 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 for tri-level consultations on a termed Affaire Fraser Major calls for vigilantes on every corner regional level. ThesB dis- cussions would deal with urbai problems in a specific provinct or group of provinces. The decisions were "historic" by Urban Minister Ron Basford, Mooney, Nova Scotia minister of municipal affairs, and Mayor D. G. Newman of Whitby, Ont. They were chairmen of the fed- eral, provincial and municipal delegations respectively. The municipal and federal delegations appeared to the least round in the twoday conference. The provincial group, though not seemed cool to further tri-levd talks as the conference opened. While the general provincial brief did not close the door to further tri-level conferences, it suggested municipal could best be handled by tbf annual conference of provincial municipal affairs ministers. PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. (CP) Mayor H. L. Henderson says he will endeav- or to "set up a vigilante com- millce on every block in the city'' if. what he described, as a "wave of lawlessness1' in Portage La Prairie cannet be .stopped by more convcntial menus. Speaking at a council meci- Mr. Henderson recom- mended that a meeting bo held with RCMP officials and police experts from Winnipeg. But if this fails to produce solutions. "I propose to set up T> vigilante committee on every block in the Mr. Hender- son said lawbreakers would "have to go some to get by vigilantes if we can get the right people." Such a vigilante system could include foot and car pa- trols, he said. He uns rnnimonling on n crime reimrt presented (o the. meeting by Aid.

Acting mayor Albert Barre't said today in an interview the crime situation in the city is considered serious, with "two and three, sometimes four, break ins every night." He said police believe one gang is largely responsible. He said the high incidence of break ins showed in the police, department's monthly report on crime statistics.
