Rogers and other of- ficials with the four govorn- menls who have been asked to serve on the supervisory teams hat1 not been very encouraging. While all four agreed in prin- ciple to participate, all had any significant manpower or resources to the undertaking. Henry A. Kissinger, President Nixon's chief foreign policy ad- visc-r. had said, prior to his current round cf Paris lhat he wanted to seek agree- ment from the Victnam- esc that the international group i could be funclioning as soon as I the cease-fire went into effect. i "We would like to avoid the dangers of the loss of life, per- haps in some areas, even of the massacre lhat may be inherent In this, and we. therefore, want [lie international supervisory body can be put in place at the same time that the cease- fire is Kissinger said on Oct. 20. A administration aide said he was not familiar with the details of. Kissinger's private talks this week jvilh ago in New York with Rogers to explore the matter more deeply.

Too many dangerous criminals are out on parole, according to Maurice Mulligan, a former B.C. provincial court judge, who resigned in crdcr to fight the growing abuses of the parole system. In Week- end Magazine this Saturday, he exposes trie situation and reports on how hundreds of crimes have been committed by parolees. IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE 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- sion which will set up the ground rules for the supervisory body. The most serious reservations member of the old tlirce-nation International Control Commis- sion in Vietnam. Mitchell Sharp, Canada's sec- retary of state for external af- fairs, has publicly staled his gov- ernment's problems with the control body. He met two days Suharto of Indonesia, but that meeting was viewed here as more a courtesy to the leader than a sign of any new development. Officials hero acknowledge that the cease-fire mechanisms 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 in general to peace-keeping mis- sions favored by his predeces- sor, Lester B. Pearson. i Second, the recent Canadian have come from Canada, which, elections have weakened Tru- i with India and Poland, was a deau's position and made any loj unconditional commitment Vietnam out ot the question. To stay in power, once Parliament reconvenes on Jan. 4, Trudeau will have to appeal to the New Democrats whose strong nation- alism makes them suspicious of any involvement with the United States. Dief adds neiv Churchill quotation OTTAWA (CP) Former prime minister John Die- fcnbaker thought he.had all of Churchill's quotations tucked away in his mind, but he managed to pick up a new one last weekend while in London to celebrate the Queen's 25th wedding anniversary. Visiting at Chartwell, the country home of Sir Win- ston Churchill, Mr. Die- fenbaker saw all the domes- tic animals that belonged to the former British prime minister and from a first- hand witness he added this to his collection of quotes: "I admire dogs for their faithfulness and loyalty, I respect cats for their inde- pendence, but above all I like treat you as equals."

Westminster Shopping Plaza Phone 328-7748 Legal heroin for those want it soug, VANCOUVER (CP) A re- port prepared by foul- 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 cost 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 that it is illegal." The report denounces govern- ment efforts to treat saying "It must be dear to any- one who has been involved in any way with the programs that the money has been dread- fully wasted." It says that addiction and fix criminality that often it should be treated as two to- tally separate issues. "One man on the says the report, "says at this point that lie will never stop taking heroin. The life style is exciting for him; he likes the community of people. Ho likes the feeling on the drug. Port board loses member VANCOUVER (CP) -Wil- liam Hamilton has resigned from the Vancouver Port Auth- ority and said ho quit because chairman Bill Rathie refused to make the authority more ef- fective. Mr. Hamilton resigned In a letter to Transport Minister Don .Tamicson. In the letter, Mr. Hamilton said the refusal to make the authority effective, combined with a refusal to re- lease n report on how the aulh- orlty could be reorganized, caused his resignation. Mr. Ratllie is chairman of the authority and the head of the local national harbors board.

"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-inmates 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 back to Matsqui when the project was completed. Preston, serving five years for trafficking in narcotics, was captured Sept. 22 in yancouver, and was sentenced in Abbots- ford provincial court Oct. 4 to an additional three months.
