The replicas are used to promote the force at exhibits, displays and fairs throughout the world. Paralyzed youth given new hope by Soviet medics TORONTO (CP) A Toronto youth who had spinal sur- gery in Leningrad, Russia, last January to relieve paralysis of his legs says it has helped his condition. _ Edgar Reiprich, 18, paralyzed in both legs since a 1971 mo- torcycle accident, said in a weekend the five months he spent in Russia have given him new hope. He is convinced that he would have died from recurring kidney infections if his mother had not ignored the skep- ticism of Toronto doctors and taken him to Russia, he said. "If I can make it through this whiter without getting sick, then my doctors will say the operation helped said the Grade 10 high school student. "I haven't gotten sick yet." Before he underwent surgery at Leningrad's Polenov Neurosurgical Institute, he spent most of his time in hospital with kidney infections. But after the five-month trip that cost him and his mother he says he has found new hope. "I wouldn't have gone to he said, if not for his Leningrad treatment. "I would have given up." Nevertheless, doctors in both Canada and Russia have told him it will be at least two years before he knows whether use of his legs will be restored. He remains confined to a wheelchair, but three times a week attends a hospital clinic where he walks with the help of parallel bars. He said that news of his treatment has brought him thou- sands of letters from paraplegics wanting to know whether treatment in Leningrad is worthwhile for them. "It was a he said. "Maybe I just went over there for hope. But I'm not going to any more." Drought-stricken Niger requires world help By WILLIAM CRAWSHAW London Observer NAMEY, Niger Niger, the land locked and drought ridden West African republic whose army seized power on Easter Monday this year, would not have survived 1974 without international help and will not get through 1975 without more of it. That is the verdict of its new president, Lt. Col. Seyni Kountche, gave in an exclusive interview. Ford wrong poll says WASHINGTON (Renter) Most Americans believe that the rail pardoning of former president Richard Nixon was wrong, an opinion poll publish- ed Monday indicates. The Louis Harris poll, pub- lished in the Washington Post, says that 60 per cent of those polled said they believed President Ford erred in par- doning his predecessor for crimes be may have com- mitted. Fifty-two per cent of adults polled between Sept. 23 and 27 say they would have felt better if Nixon had made a full admission of guilt and 96 per cent if he had been tried. An overwhelming 74 per cent thought Nixon was guilty of obstruction of justice and of abuse of power in misusing agencies. These two accusations were among toe three listed by the House of Representatives judiciary committee as the basis of its recommendations that Nixon be impeached. President Ford is scheduled to appear before a judiciary subcommittee Thursday to de- fend his Sept 8 pardon'of the former president The amount of food receiv- ed by Niger in the form of in- ternational gifts this year totals tons. The major donors were the U.S.A., France, West Germany, the EEC and the UN's world food program. The country had to buy rather more tons) than it was given to keep its four million people alive. But the cumulative effects of the seven year drought are such that, according to the president, international aid will again be vital if -the country is to survive 1975 despite this year's above average, rainfall and hopes that October's harvest will top one million tons. "I have told the inter- national community that we shall once again depend on them, at the same time thank- ing them for keeping us alive this year." said the president. Besides those who had given food, he singled out neighbor- ing Nigeria and Dahomey for .making available several hundred vehicles apiece, and Britain for the outright gift of 31 four ton tracks and spare parts. "As far as toe long.- term development of Niger is con- cerned, we have no plan said the president. "We seized because we had to, not because of any ambition, so arrived without any blueprint for the country's salvation. And in (he five mouths we've been in power, the drought has not let us do anything more than react to one crisis after another." The broad outlines of development, he added, must be determined by the needs of the country's agriculture and livestock, on which most of Niger's people depend for a living: only just over of them are wage earners of any description. Ulster a sleeper in British campaign London Observer BELFAST In the vcam- paign for the Oct. 10 general election, the issue of Northern Ireland is a sleeper. It is true that any under- developed countries still left with a desire to biame Britain cite the state of Ulster as a typical example of British ex- ploitation. It is true that British constituencies with large expatriate Irish minorities can be distorted a little with the problem. But only the extreme left wing, a wing so extreme as to be outside hailing distance of Parliament, has tried to ex- ploit the issue. It makes no mileage with 'the Liberals or liberals. It is shunned like a radio-active area. It is not in Britain with, of course, the proper exception of Northern Ireland itself a question in this election. This is odd because the con- dition .of the province comes as a shock to a visitor es- pecially after a long absence. The British press which has tended strongly to sympathize with the Catholic minority, though not with the IRA, has not exaggerated: Belfast is a major disaster area. Its state is far worse than the sum of the incidents that have been every day reported. It was never a very elegant place. It is now a slum city. It has an air of dereliction, as if the Industrial Revolution had withdrawn and left only its debris behind. It looks as if the' police had abdicated, which is partly true. It looks as if the social services had been dis- banded which is not true. The typical horror in Belfast is little, raw, red- brick houses', where every single' window and door is sealed with cement blocks. Shops have been blown open, dozens of public houses shattered and post-off ices and police'stations are fortified and ringed with concertina barbed-wire under which no sanitary department has swept for 12 months. In Northern Ireland the general election is, of course, only about Northern Ireland and has nothing in common with the election in the rest of Britain. Here there reigns an irrationality that is a sort of berserk assault upon logic. When talking to a colleague who works in the Province he said: "If you are going to ask' intelligent questions you may as well go home." The IRA line is unfortunate- ly now in effect the cause of the Catholic minority. It runs something like this: "We are at war with the British, but Britain may not react in a warlike manner. Interment without trial is intolerable, but it is treason for a Catholic to give evidence in a criminal court. The British should leave, but should continue to subsidize the health service, pensions and the social ser- vices that the Irish Republic cannot begin to match." The fact that the Dublin Govern- ment views with horror the prospect of taking over Northern Ireland is not con- sidered. The Ulster Protestants have not gone quite so deeply into illogic. For a public front they now have the rebel Conser- vative, Enoch Powell, im- ported from the English Midlands: BOB TAHLECK STANDS FOR Broader representation on city council Continuing support for essential community service programs Stricter monitoring of the allocation of city contracts.
