Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 25, 1972 THE iRHBItlDGE HERALD 9 Brawl breaks out aboard carrier PEARL HARBOR (AP) About 100 black and white sail- ors were involved in last month's racial fight aboard the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk and the fighting with knives, forks and chains lasted several hours, crew members of the ship said. Many of those interviewed blamed the disturbance on com- bat stress. The Kitty Hawk arrived off North Vietnam last February. Six month of duty was ex- pected, sailors said. It went to the Philippines, where the ini- tial fracas occurred before its last month of combat. When the ship returned to combat, they said, the discontent spread. The Oct. 12 incident was touched off, one' sailor said, when a black sailor asked for two sandwiches in the ship's mess hall and was given only one. The incident aboard the Kitty Hawk and racial tension aboard the carrier Constellation are being investigated by a three- man congressional committee holding hearings in San Diego. A navy spokesman at Pearl Harbor said three of the 25 blacks charged in the Kitty Hawk disturbance have been cleared; two have been con- victed and are in the ship's brig. The trial of a third is con- tinuing.

Speeding Princess Anne gets off with learning LONDON f AP) Princess Anne was told today she will not be prosecuted for alleg- edly breaking the speed limit in her high-powered sports car. But police warned her not to do it again. The 22-year-old princess has captured British newspaper headlines for a week with her auto escapades and by riding after hounds in breach of a royal taboo against fox hunt- ing. She was pursued by police and stopped on the M-4 super- highway Inking London with the West of England. Second, she was stopped on the M-l highway north of Lon- don. Police said she was trav- elling at just under 90 miles an hour. Britain's coun- trywide limit is 70 miles an hour. The princess drives a 125- mile-an-hour Scimitar sports car, given by her parents as a Christmas present in 1970. Conviction on a speeding charge usually carries a fine of (about and- a driver's licence endorsement. Three endorsements can bring suspension from driving for one year. Police declined to comment today on their decision. The decision followed a rib- bing the princess gave to the press for the way they cov- ered her activities. China-Soviet tension increases PEKING (Reuter) As the Indochina war appears to be drawing to an uneasy close, ten- sion between China and the So- viet Union is Increasing again and some diplomats in the Chi- nese capital say they believe there is a connection between the two. The Soviet Union owes much of its inf luence in the east Asian region and possibly also in the Third World to its strong mate- rial and moral support of .North Vietnam, though the' Kremlin apparently remains eager for peaco in Indochina. Soviet leaders, therefore, are anxious that influence not1 recede once' the .guns, are stilled. China, which throughout the war has reluctantly accepted the Soviet Union's role in assist- ing the Hanoi government to an extent, beyond .Peking's re- sources, is keen to break the Soviet encirclement of its bor- ders and oust Moscow from a dominant role in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. With peace approaching, al- though it might be several weeks before the United States is ready to sign a ceasefire, China is manoeuvring to ensure that a waning of U.S. influence in the region will be matched by a similar Russian action. SHOCKS DIPLOMATS The first salvo in the renewed Sino-Soviet jousting came on Oct. 1, when, in its traditional editorial marking the anni- versary of the founding of the Chinese People's Republic, the official Peking People's Daily shocked Communist diplomats here by calling Soviet social im- perialism more dangerous than old-style imperialism. This was the first time such a sentiment had been expressed and Chinese leaders have re- peated it since to ram the point home. This latest move In relations between the two countries fol- lows more than three years of abortive talks in Peking after the series of six battles along the Ussuri River in 19G9 when Chinese and Soviet troops clashed on their common bor- der. The cudgels were taken up again Oct. 3 when Chinese Vice- Foreign Minister Chiao Kuan- hua, addressing the United Na- tions General Assembly, criti- cized Moscow on a wide range of issues. On Nov. 6, China's most in- fluential military figure, Yen Chien-ying, who is vice-chair- man of the central committee's military commission, said that "Soviet revisionist social impe- rialism" was "more deceptive than old-line imperialism and therefore more dangerous." Last month, Soviet Ambassa- dor Vassily Tolstikov, a stocky troubleshooting Russian diplo- mat who was formerly party boss in Leningrad, returned to Peking with Leonid Dychev, head of the Soviet delegation at the border talks. And, on Nov. 1, it was the Russians' turn to provide a shock as Tolstikov got up and stomped out of an Algerian re- ception when Chinese Foreign Minister Chi Peng-fei made a routine attack on the "super- shorthand for the Soviet Union and U.S. Even East European corre- spondents were taken aback at Tolstlkov's gesture, wtrich seemed to signal that the Soviet Union, too, was taking a harder line. 1973 PARK The newest and most believable quality and workmanship in mobile homes!
