Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Saturday, November 30, 1974 Cyprus struggle hard-Makarios MAKARIOS ATHENS (AP) Archbishop Makarios, on his way home to Cyprus on Fri- day after four months in exile, told cheering Greeks "under no circumstances will we agree to the forceful displace- ment of populations or parti- tion as solutions to the Cyprus problem." Makarios, in a speech from his hotel balcony, added, "The struggle will be hard for a final settlement I believe I will encounter great dif- ficulties upon my return to Cyprus." The 62-year-old bearded prelate and president of Cyprus stopped in Athens to confer with Greek officials on a common policy for Cyprus. He was met at the airport by Premier Constantine Caramanlis and leading members of his cabinet and was acclaimed byv tens of thousands of Greeks as he drove to his hotel in downtown Athens. In his speech, Makarios did not spell out what difficulties he expected but one of them was sure to be opposition from EOKA-B, the anti-Makarios underground organization. EOKA-B and the Cyprus Na- tional Guard, supported by the then-ruling Greek military junta, deposed Makarios last July 15 and forced him to flee the Mediterranean island a day later. Turkey invaded Cyprus July 20, subsequently occupying almost 40 per cent of the island. Opposition to Makarios' re- turn was expressed by Turkey and the Tur .ish-Cypriot com- munity. T icy said that the archbishop's presence on the island v ould jeopardize talks going on between acting Cypn s President Glafkos Cleri ies and Turkish-Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash in an ef- fort to solve the bitter differences between the two communities. Meanwhile. Turkey's new interim government resigned Friday after suffering defeat in its first Parliamentary vote of confidence. As he lifted his arms to ac- knowledge the thunderous ovation of the people assembl- ed in Constitution Square, Makarios said, "My sincere wish is that a solution to the Cyprus problem be found, securing the Turkish minority's right to self- administration but under no circumstances will we agree to the forceful displacement of populations." He continued: "I offer an olive branch of peace to the Turks but we will not give away any land or water sym- bols of humiliation and sub- mission." .The speech was also cheered in the Greek com- munities of Cyprus where many gathered to hear it broadcast by radio. Security for Makarios' arrival was the most stringent in recent times. Crossroads were blocked along his route to the city and surging crowds were kept at a distance from his hotel.

Indian oiJ bill approved OTTAWA (CP) An act to guarantee higher royalties for oil and natural gas on Indian lands was one of three bills approved by the Commons Friday. The Indian Oil and Gas Act was given final reading with amendments which would re- quire the government to con- sult on a continuing basis with the Indian bands affected. Also, Indians would be guaranteed the right to negotiate for oil and gas benefits in areas where land claims have not been settled. Another amendment makes Ottawa responsible for collec- ting the royalties on behalf of the Indian bands. Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan said the Progressive Conservative amendme its "are of a nature which I -elcome and en- dorse." "This bill assures that the Indian people will get their full share." The minister has said the bill was drafted following last year's price upheaval in the international oil industry. Royalties were raised on an interim basis by regulation, but the legislation was needed to ensure that native people received fair return on a per- manent basis. Under the new royalty structure, revenue from oil and natural gas on Indian lands will rise to million this year from million in 1973. The bill, which now goes to the Senate for consideration, would let the cabinet adjust lees regularly to take price changes into account. The Commons also passed a bill, already approved by the Senate, to establish a British Columbia-Alberta boundary commission to settle boun- dary disputes between the two provinces. The bill was passed with a Progressive Conservative amendment which would re- quire the three-member com- mission to hold public hearings on proposed boun- dary changes. A third bill passed by the Commons Friday would amend the Fire Losses Replacement Accounts Act to include the Northwest and Yukon territories. illinium 1975 cjaenuaxda games m ii ng loo calibre competition m 16 dil'erenl sports events by Canada s best young iho culmination ol A lull year trairvng and preparation These young competitors athletes inql ran maVf your snort more "xt than ever bdore 5Vi ng Fi Volleyball r A. jim 1N- C-J' 'jams'.
