30 THt IETHBRIDGE HERALD Widnetday, November 59, 1972-------------------- Kissinger: world's most improbable sex symbol By MICHAEL PRENTICE WASHINGTON (Renter) At first glance Henry Kissinger, President Nixon's peace ne- gotiator, might appear one of the most improbable sex sym- bols In the world. Police leadership 'lacking' BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) An army instructor who wit- nessed the deaths of two stu- dent demonstrators at Southern University says law officers at the scene charged about "act- ing as individuals, with no no- ticeable leadership." Army Maj. Leon Jackson told an unofficial all-black in- vestigating committee Tuesday he helped keep state troopers at bay so students and university employees inside the tear gas- filled administration building could escape during the vio- lence Nov. 16. Jackson also said he had trouble persuading officers and university officials to summon medical aid for the two stu- dead and the other lay on the sidewalk outside the building. They had been hit by buckshot. He said when he went for- ward to examine the two, a state trooper told him: "You are not God. Leave those people until the coroner gets here." On another occasion, Jackson said, he approached two of uni- versity President Dr. G. Leon Netterville's top administrators and told them one student was dead and the other needed im- mediate medical attention. "Their words were: 'It's good for them. They knew what they were getting into. They de- served what they to that Jackson said. The committee of black lead- ers adjourned for two weeks Tuesday after taking two days of testimony. An official com- mittee of inquiry, headed by state Attorney-General William Guste. also recessed for a few days Tuesday. He Is stocky, wears thick glasses and speaks with a heavy German accent. But improbable or not, the 49- year-old Kissinger is the one su- perstar In the Nixon adminis- tration, the most sought-after escort in Washington. It is a role he seems to relish almost as much as being one of the world's most powerful men, the key foreign policy adviser of President Nixon. His power is a source of his sex appeal, as it has been for many other figures in this power-conscious capital. HE'S MOST ELIGIBLE But his taste for the good life and his evident pleasure in the company of beautiful women, combined with his wit and tal- ent as a conversationalist, have made him the most eligible un- married man in Washington. Kissinger, a German-born Jewish professor from Harvard who was not considered the life of a party in his professorial days, seemed somewhat sur- prised when he first came to Washington by all the attention paid him by society hostesses and columnists. But he accepted the flattery and social prominence and cul- tivated his image as a party- lover and ladies' man. DATES NUMEROUS But while his social life Is re- stricted, Kissinger has dated a string of attractive women in his four years as the pres- ident's right hand man on for- eign policy. He even found time to go to a fashionable and highly-publi- cized Washington party one night recently while preparing for climactic Vietnam peace ne- gotiations in Paris. Kissinger's appearance at the party stole the show as he surely knew it would and en- hanced his reputation as a play- boy who could find time for fun even in the midst of most deli- cate and crucial internation- al diplomacy. Kissinger's date was Marga- ret Osmer, who is about 30, a television producer with stun- ningly good looks who has been seen on his arm several times in the last year or two. His fascination with show business is reflected in his fre- quent trips to Hollywood when he accompanies President Nixon to the Western White House in California. Among ac- tresses he has taken out are Jill St. John, Mario Thomas and Sa- manlha Eggar. High price wanted for mill, woods THOIS-RIVIERES, Que. (CP) Canadian International Pa- per wants SI? million before it will sell its Kipawa mill and surrounding timberlands in Te- miscaming, Que., to a citizen's group, a union executive charged Tuesday night. Jean-Louis Camfel, executive assistant to the Canadian direc- tor of the United Paperworkers International Union, told a meeting here that the figure in- cludes cost of the mill, lim- berland rights and improve- ments and other concessions from the Quebec government. He would not reveal the source of his information but said it was "a good and reliable source." Mr. Carufel called on the pro- vincial government "not to pay the ransom and with the powers they have take back the tim- berland rights and if necessary expropriate the mill." About 875 mill and woodland workers were laid off last June when the American-owned com- pany closed the mill, the town's only industry. MAY LOSE RIGHTS Tembec Forest Products Inc., a corporation formed by Tcmis- caming residents, is currently negotiating with CIP to buy the mill. Earlier Tuesday, a Quebec City newspaper said the Quebec cabinet will adopt an order-in- council next week putting an end to CIP's Umber rights. Le Soleil, quoting what It termed reliable sources, said the cabinet will adopt the order, which would provide the com- pany with compensation, when Premier Robert Bourassa re- turns from a trip to England. Reaction mixed to new cabinet By JACQUELINE MONDY QUEBEC (OP) Quebec pol- iticians expressed some dis- appointment Tuesday at the re- moval of a Quebec minister from an important federal eco- nomic portfolio and surprise at the appointment of another Que- bec to a post which has been a battleground between Ottawa and the province. The departure of Jean March- and from the department of re- gional economic expansion to transport was deplored by Fi- nance Minister Raymond Gar- neau. The expansion depart- ment was closely linked with economic development of east- ern Quebec, Mr. Garneau said. Unite-Quebec leader Gabriel Loubicr and Camille Laurin, na- tional assembly leader of the Parti Quebecois, also expressed disappointment with the move. The spectre of Marc Lalonde, former principal adviser to Prime Minister Trudeau and now national health and welfare minister, facing Claude Casto- nguay, Quebec's social affairs minister, caused differing reac- tion. OUTLOOKS DIFFER Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quette said he hoped Mr. La- londe's appointment would ir.csr, better relations between Ottawa and Quebec while others thought it would only worsen matters. Mr. Castonguay and Labor Minister John Munro, former health minister, conducted a running battle last year over Quebec's demands for the right to say who would receive bene- fits under a proposed revision of the family allowance plan. Mr. Laurin said the prime minister was giving his new health minister the task of mas- tering all independence trends in Quebec which will not make it any easier for the province to get an "integrated and coher- ent" social policy. Mr. Loubier said Mr. La- londe's appointment was a sur- prise "considering the tension that exists in Ottawa-Quebec re- lations." Talks between Mr. La- londe and Mr. Castonguay will be a "fight to the finish be- tween two men and two philo- sophies." The Unite-Quebec leader said a similar struggle could develop between Jean-Paul L'AHier, Quebec communications minis- ter and his new federal counter- part Gerard Pelletier. Mr. L'AUier is tying to gain Que- bec control over cablevision. 'APPEASING WOLVES' Commenting on Mr. March' and's move, Mr. Laurin said he was "sacrificed to appease the wolves" while Fabien Hoy, spokesman for the Ralliement Creditiste, said the prime min- ister did "not want to be mor- ally bound to fulfilling Mr. Marchand's promises.11 Mr. Choquette said he was glad to see Otto Lang remain as federal justice minister and that Jean-Pierre Goyer, now supply and services minister and previously solicitor-general, was a "victim of his job." Mr. Goyer had been plagued with numerous problems, es- capes and temporary leaves for prisoners during the last few months, he said. Labor Minister Jean Coumo- yer was surprised at the resig- nation last week of Immigration Minister Bryce Mackasey, who had been labor minister. Mr. Cournoyer also said he was uneasy that various eco- nomic portfolios in the federal cabinet no longer are held by Quebecers. No comment was available from Premier Robert Bourassa who is in London. Defeated Tory joins staff OTTAWA (CP) Hugh Segal, 22, defeated Conservative candidate in Ottawa Centre, has been appointed a special assist- ant to Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield. Mr. Segal, a native of Mon- treal, was an assistant to David MacDonald, Conservative MP for Egmont, in the last Parlia- ment. Mr. Segal finished second to Liberal Hugh Paulin in Ottawa Centre in the Oct. 30 federal election. BATTERY MARKET ROUYN, Que. (CP) There must be good business in used car batteries here. Thieves made off with 11 car batteries which were stolen from parked cars in one night. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT Governor-General Roland Michener sails into a foot- ball on rhe grounds of Government House In Otlawa as he gets his kicking leg in for the ceremonial kick-off at the Grey Cup Sunday in Hamilton. He'll be out to beat the 32-yard record held by Prime Minister Trudeau.
