Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Otlobcr W, iMB lETHBRIDGB HEHAID 31 WHAT THE DUCK BROUGHT-A duck named Thomasina of National City, Calif., sits proudly in the midst of her new ducklings-28 of them. Mrs. Tom Revette 1he own- ner, commented: "Gracious, you know we expected 10 or 15 at the most." Thomasmo was given a meal of marischino cherries as her Gastown riot: was it necessary? VANCOUVER (CP) An en- tirely new police approach lo civil disobedience was recom- mended Friday as an inquiry into a riot in the city's Gastown district Aug. 7 ended. Joe Wood, lawyer for the Brit- ish Columbia Civil Liberties As- sociation, blamed the confronta- tion on a lack of police judg- ment and training in dealing with an increasing number of demonstrations. He said the disturbance was the culmination of hostile moods building for some time between police and demonstrators. The riot in Vancouver's reju- venated skid-road district re- sulted from a "smoke-in" at which demonstrators had gath- ered to protest a crack-down by police on drug sales and use in the area. Tile inquiry, under B.C. Su- preme Court Justice T. A. Next move awaited in Investors case Dolmi. was called following i complaints of police hmlalily in dispersing the croud, many of I whom had not been parlicipat- ing in the demonstration. Mr. Justice Dohm said he hopes to complete his report by the end of next week and send it to Attorney-General Leslie Pe- terson. It was up to Mr. Peter- son to say when it would be released. REJECTS CLAIM Mr. Wood rejected the conten- tion of police union lawyer George Murray that the riot had teen prompted by a conspiracy among members of the Youth International Party. Mr. Murray said: "This affair was the. result of a conspiracy between certain subversive ele- ments in this community who are bcund and determined to overthrow all authority." He suggested the smoke-in was organized to cover up the real purpose of the confronta- tion. "There isn't a tittle of evi dcnce that Uiis was an organ- ized Mr. Wood said. "The people who were tliere were 90 per cent observ- ers who had no intent what- soever to engage to any violent confrontation." He said the crowd had been given the impression of tacit ap- proval by minorities, with uni- formed policemen standing I around and streets closed off earlier in the evening, when suddenly the order was given to clear the streets. described the following as "terror inducing" as a trontal assault was made on the crowd in the confined area. Plainclothes policemen "beating demonstrators and dragging them off somewhere added to the general riotous Strike effects not assessed OTTAWA CCP) It's still too early to assess the "benefits or the disadvantages" of the U.S. coast-to-coast longshoremen's strike on Canada, Transport Minister Don Jamieson told the Commons Friday. He told Tom Bell that the situa- tion in Vancouver already is "most difficult" because of ear- lier strike action in the U.S. FREDERICTON (CP) The next move by dissident share- holders of Investors Overseas Sendees Ltd. remained uncer- tain today in the wake of a court victory Friday by man- agement officials of the billion- dollar international firm. In a decision filed by the Dp- peals division of the New Bruns- wick Supreme Court, manage- ment was freed of restrictions imposed by an injunction dissi- dents obtained after losing a battle for control of the com- pany at the annual IOS meeting June 30 in Toronto. The injunction, which re- strained IOS Chairman Robert Vesco and company directors from conducting any but routine business, was dissolved in a unanimous decision by Chief Justice G. F. G. Bridgesn Mr. Justice C. J. A. Hughes and Mr. Justice n. V. Limerick. In his personal ruling, Chief Jusitice Bridges said the dissi- dents' action was improperly i before the court because it named Mr. Vesco without men- tioning other IOS directors but he indicated other legal steps may be planned by the dissi- dents. Saying other directors should have been joined as defendents with Mr. Vesco, the chief justice added: "I believe an application for this is being, or has been, made." WITHHELD DETAILS He did not elaborate on de- tails of the application or what further legal steps it might lead to. Other than lawyers, there were no representatives of ei- ther IOS or dissidents present, when the decision was filed, to comment on the possibility of further action. The injunction was granted July 14 in Saint John, N.B.N legal headquarters for IOS. It was obtained by Morton I.; Echiowitz of Scsrsdale, N.Y., on behalf of himself and all other shareholders. Other than IOS and Mr. Vesco, tlie action named three other defendents, the IOS Stock Option Plan Ltd., International Controls Corp. of Fairfield, N.J., and Hemispheres Finan- cial Services Ltd. of Toronto. Although incorporated in New Brunswick, IOS operations are based in Geneva, Switzerland, and none of its assets are lo- cated in the province. Connected with more than 80 subsidiaries around the world, IOS is involved in the sale of mutual funds, real estate and other interests.

Oldsmobile's Ninety-Eight and Delta 88 have a lot more going for them than just beautiful style. New ideas, big improvements. The big news for 1972 is Oldsmobile's new front bumper. A bumper that knows how to take a bump. The secret? Heavier-gauge steel and spring-steel mounts. Minor impacts cause the bumper to flex, which ab- sorbs the shock, and then returns to its original position. You'll find the new front bumper on all Ninety-Eights and 88s. Along with such other Olds standard features power steering; power front disc brakes; automatic trans- mission; famous Rocket V8 performance. With the Ninety-Eight, you find even more. Inside, all is spacious elegance. There are wood-grain 'nserUi and rich deep-pile carpeting. The front seat is five- .eet-plus. And solid foam. For 1372, the grille has been redesigned and the tail- lights made more distinctive. The Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is a luxury car, in the grande manner. The Delta SS is only a little less grande.
