Honors and oilier of- ficials with the four govern- ments who have been asked Io serve on the supervisory teams hnf not been very encouraging. While all four agreed in prin- ciple to participate, all had serious qualms and none had any significant manpower or resources to the undertaking. Henry A. Kissinger, President Nixon's chief foreign policy ail- viser. had said, prior to his current rniuui cf Paris that he wanted to seek agree- ment from 111'.' North Vietnam- ese thai Iho international group could be functioning as soon as the reasc-fire v.'er.L into effect.

In Week- end Magazine this Saturday, he exposes Ihe situation and reports on how hundrc-ds of crimes have been committed by parolees. IN YOUR IETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Hie international supervisory body can he put in place at the same time that the cease- fire is Kissinger said on Oct. 2li. A well-placed administration aide said he was not familiar with the details of. Kissinger's private talks this week with I.e Due Tho, Ihe chief North Vietnamese negotiator. But he said that from the reaction of officials who did know what j was going on in Paris, he as- sumed that no unexpected pit- i falls had arisen, and that Kis- sinner's informal timetable o f a settlement by mid-Dsccmbor was still likely. The discussions with Canada, Hungary, Indonesia and Po- land, however, have r.ot yet reached the point where it is possible that a meaningful in- ternational supervisory force could be in place by then, one official said. The United States had con- templated a commis- sion, divided evenly among the four participants. But so far. with none of the four countries willing to make that kind of commitment, full Implementa- tion of the force may have to await the convening of a multi- nation international commis- sinn which will set up the ground rules for the supervisory body. The most serious reservations member of the old Iliree-nation International Control Commis- sion in Vielnam. Mitchell Sharp, Canada's sec- retary of stale for external af- fairs, has publicly staled Ills gov- ernment's problems with the control body. He met two days ago in New York with Rogers Io explore the mailer more deeply. Wednesday Kissinger flew Io Brussels to discuss the envision- ed mechanism with Suharto of Indonesia, that meeting was viewer! here as more a courtesy to Trnlriri- fip.n leader than a sign of any new development. Officials here acknowledge that Ihe cease-fire mcchr.nisms now envisioned are extremely complicated, and provide no iron-clad insurance against vio- lations. They said many of the details must await the conclu- sion of Kissinger's current talks in Paris, and the projected in- ternational conference on Viet- nam that would ba held within 30 days of the cease-fire. Canada's problems with the envisioned truce body stems from at least two causes. First, Prime Minister Tru- dau has been lukewarm general to peace-keeping mis- sions favored by his predeces- sor, Lester B. Pearson. Second, the recent Canadian have come from Canada, which, elections have weakened Tru- t with India and Poland, was a I position and made any nncoiitlilionnl commitment Io Vietnam out of Lhe question.

Legal heroin for those want it sou VANCOUVER (CP) A re- port prepared by four prison- er-addicts and four "outsiders" on a project financed through an Opportunities for Youth grant calls for legalized heroin for addicts who don't want to quit the habit. The four addicts, inmates of the Federal Penitentiary Ser- vice's Matsqui institution in the Fraser Valley, were employed for 13 weeks from late June to mid-September at a week each. They worked with four "out- side" women members of an organization known as Inside- Out, a group established to as- sist in the rehabilitation of in- mates. The inmates were let out of Matsqui on temporary absence permits to work on the project, which the federal govern- ment Drug seminars were held in Chilliwack, Haney, Langley, Abbotsford, Coquitlam and Mission. The report on the project, made public this week, said as the group talked more about ad- diction "we realized that heroin addiction is no different from any other kind of addiction, ex- cept thr.t it is illegal." The report denounces govern- ment efforts to treat raying "It must be dear to any- one who has been involved in any way wilh Ihe programs that the money has been dread- fully wasted." It says that addiction and criminality that often gc it should be treated as two to- tally separate issues. "One man on the says the report, "says at this point that tie will never stop taking heroin. The life style is exciting for him; he likes the community of people. He likes the feeling on the drug.

Mr. Hamilton resigned In a letter to Transport Minister Don .Tamicson. In Iho letter, Mr. Hamilton said the refusal to make Ihe authority effective, combined with a refusal to re- lease a report on how the nulh- orlty could be reorganized, caused his resignation.

"For a man in this position, legalization of heroin seems to be the mcst logical answer. If he could go each day to a con- trolled maintenance heroin clinic, and pick up his heroin, a whole ream of problems cre- ated around 'how he is going to get money to fix' are elimin- ated. "Criminality is effectively re- moved from addiction." The report says the project experience was good for the ad- dict-inmrj'.es involved, in that they had responsibilities and constructive channels in which to direct their cngergies. One of the inmates, George Douglas Preston, 40, failed to report hack to Malsqui when the project was completed. Preston, serving five years for trafficking in narcotics, was captured Sept. 22 in Vancouver, and was sentenced in Abbots- ford provincial court Oct. 4 to an additional three months.
