Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta so THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Wedneiddy, November 11, 197Z Pentagon Papers professor jailed BOSTON (AP) Stripped by the courts of lu's claim to aca- demic privilege. Harvard Prof. Samuel Popkin has been sent to ]ail for refusing to answer three grand jury questions about the release Pentagon Papers. The 30-year-old assistant pro- fessor of government hud been battling v.iih tlie government and the Boston grand jury since August, 1971. On Tuesday, Judge Arthur Gairity denied motions by Pop- kin's lawyers, including Har- vard President Derek Bofc, to vacate n contempt citation is- by Garrity March 29 in U.S. district court. The judge also refused to suspend execu- tion of the jail sentence. The Harvard researcher, whose unsuccessful appeals of the contempt order went as high as the U.S. Supreme Court, had surrendered to a U.S. mar- shal after the First Circuit Court cf Appeals revoked bail and all earlier stays of the con- lempt sentence. Following the hearing Popkin was seni as a federal prisoner to the Norfolk County jail in Dedham. Under the contempt order Popkin was sentenced to Jail for up lo 18 months or until the grand jury's term expires Jan. 12. The silling of the jury, how- ever, can be extended. WILL APPEAL AGAIN? Daniel Klubock, one of Pop- kin's lawyers, said later there harl Ireen no decision on whether to attempt new ave- nues of appeal. Judge Garrily said Popkin would be purged of Ihe con- tempt charge and released if he signed an unconditional state- ment that he would answer the three disputed questions. The grand jury has been sit- ting in Boston since the sum- mer of 1971 lo investigate the release of the once-secret Pen- tagon Papers study involving the origins of U.S. involvement in Vietnam to the press Princess' fox limit supported LONDON (Reuter) Prin- cess Anne has received support from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani- mals in a row touched off by a recent fox hunt. 'Princess Anne Is entitled to indulge in any practice which is within the the society said in a statement Tuesday night. To suggest that she should refrain from a practice In which every citizen of this coun- try is at liberty to indulge would be as impertinent as it would be offensive." The princess, an expert horse- woman, tok part in a fox hunt 10 days ago while visiting friends in northeni England, an- gering members of anti-blood sport groups. Some members of the RSPCA had called privately for Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother to resign as patrons of the or- ganization unless they ex- pressed regret over the 22-year- old princes's involvement in the hunt. Government attitude toward NRC changed By JEFF CARItUTHERS OTTAWA The "black clouds of doom" that earlier this year seemed to hang over the National Research Council now seem to be dissipating without having caused much damage structurally. And the expected major changes in the NRC, once re- garded by science experts in government to be "just a mat- ter of time" away from fruition, now are being postponed, per- haps to be forgotten forever. Only one major change in removal of the grant- ing seems likely to take place in the short term from the grab bog of changes recommended by the second re- port of the Lamontagne Senate special committee on science policy early in 1972. The Lamontagne committee suggested that the research labs do only industrial research, that much of the pure research be done by universities and the 12 foot Heavy Duty CUSHION VINYL SQ. YD. 2.95 6 foot Armstrong Inlaid CORLON (in. fl. 1.95 rest done in a National Re- search Academy, and more. All of it added up to effectively tearing NRC apart and starting all over again. There are a number of rea- sons for this latest, possibly transient change in attitude in government towards NRC. Some sources explain that NRC may have done much to head-off the proposed structural changes by re-orienting by placing more emphasis on applied and industrial research activities and less on the purest of pure, the "curiosity-oriented" basic research. But another major factor must be the political climate it- self, which at present is not conducive to controversial changes in science policy, other sources suggest. These same government s o u r c es interpret today's changed attitudes towards NRC as more of a "wait and see" attitude.

Federal Science Minister Alastair Gillespie said in an in- terview Tuesday that he still hopes an official announcement on the future o[ NRC can be made by the end of this time he has suggested pre- viously is the latest any deci- sion on NRC should be post- poned. One of the major prob- lems at NRC lias been declining morale among scientists in lipht of rumors and recommenda- tions about changes at NRC. The removal of the granting function from NRC remains highly likely, since experts both in and out of government agree to such a move. For one, removilg the grant- ing function from NRC would remove what some regard as a source of "conflict of The same sort of research that NRC funds outside of NRC is of- ten carried out in NRC's own For another, combining the granting functions f-om NRC with the Medical Research Council and the Canada Coun- cil, under one co-ordinating body (such as the federal sci- ence ministry) would permit more co-ordination and plan- ning of research funding in Can- ada and prevent existing over- lap between the now-separate granting agencies. The new granting bodies would be called "foundations" and would fund th three areas of physical sciences, health sci- ences, and social sciences and humanities. Spoiled ballots probed By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) The chief electoral office has started an investigation into what appears to have been rn unusually large number of rejected ballots in the Oct. 30 federal election. Hamel says he is investigating reports of votes rejected because the ballots were wongly marked. He will be to do a thorough job when he can legally open ballot boxes after Dec. 5. At present, the ballot boxes are in a restricted area of a warehouse here. The elections officer can get to them only by a court order. M. Hamel said rejections must be considered on a con- stituency-by-constituency basis, not nationally. While national figures may appear high, Uic proportion of rejections to the total vote in each constituency may be low, he said in a ninterview. A survey by The Canadian Press this month showed the proportions of rejected ballots rose substantially in many con- stituencies compared with 196B. The cause appeared to have been a new ballot. In the new ballots, voters were askgd to make a mark in a white circle surrounded by black opposite the name of the candidate of their choice. Some voters followed the sys- tem of past elections and marked their ballots In the white oblong space reserved for the name of candidates and their political affiliation. Some marked them in both places. Hamel said he is in- vestigating lo see how many re- turning officers did not follow the instructions contained in the Elections Act. when having bal- lots printed locally. Under Ihe act, Hie oblong space is supposed lo be com- pletely filled by the name of Hi; candidate. A one-cighlh-inch border is pormiHcd on Ihe left and right of the name. TJndr the name comes the political affiliation and it, loo, mn t fill the line. Some reluming officers allowed the ballots lo be printed In such a manner that there was space between the names and the borders of the oblongs, some voters made their marks there. One report to Mr. IfaTicl said lhat 12 pot cent of the ballots In the Ontario constituency of Nickel Bell were rejected and Mr. Hamel said this wns out- rageous. Tho ballot design can be al- tered only by legislative action.
