18 THE IETH8RID6E HERAID Wodneidny, October 13, 1971 You Ask Me.. By RON CALDWEU T expect a wide-spread, large-scale outbreak of well-or- ganized violence in the United States sometime in the near future. It could come nest spring or perhaps later, it may never happen. Maybe the signs that I believe indicate violence in- dicate something else, but my pessimistic nature coupled with the large violence prone segment of U.S. society leads ir.e to believe something will happen. Prior to moving to Lelhbridge, I lived in the port city of Saint John, N.B. Events in that city from Feb., 1969 saward have led me to expect the In the early part of that month, a Cuban cattle boat, the Luis Arcos Bergnez, arrived in Saint John from Cuba. It wasn't carrying cattle. Aboard were more than 200 young Americans. They called themselves revolutionaries. They had been in Cuba for several months helping, they said, to harvest Castro's large sugar cane crop. The people who came off that boat ranged in age from the early teens to the late 20s, and a few were older. They were extremely well organized. Only a few selected members were allowed to speak to the press. Others, especially the younger members, had ob- viously received definite instructions to say nothing. Even the simplest questions like, "Did you enjoy went unanswered by the rank and file. The leaders were tough and blunt. They kept the news conference short and revealed only what they wanted known. They travelled home by bus to points from Boston to San Preface. There were three other such excursions in the space of a year meaning nearly self proclaimed revolutionaries had spent up to four months in Cuba. If all these young people were in Cuba to aid in sugar cane and citrus fruit harvest, as they say, then my fears are without basis. But, if they were doing something else while they were there like learning guerilla warfare then there is some- thing to worry about. Consider what dedicated revolutionaries could learn in four months of intensive training. Consider to how many other revolutionaries they could pass on this knowledge after they returned. If each member of the group took four months to teach what he has learned to one other person, there would be well-trained revolutionaries in the U.S. right now. However, if each one taught a group of 100, and each of the 100 repeated the process with a new group, who knows how many there could be? But perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps all those people were really in Cuba for no other reason than to help in the sugar cane harvest. If that's the case, then maybe there is nothing to worry about. Maybe all those people brought back nothing more than memories of four months of working in a Cuban cane field and a journey of several thousand miles on the floor of a Converted cattle boat. Maybe. Incidentally, they called the group "The Vinceremos Bri- which means "We will win." Win what? College student election set Students at the Lethbridge Community College will be electing a new Student Council president Oct. 15. Jim Ailsby, 29, is stepping i down from the post because of! other pressures. i There are also indications t that there was a communica- tions problem with younger members of the council. Debra Masson, a radio arts student, and Wilf Lane, a busi- ness student and former exter- nal rice president of the coun- cil, are in the running for the president's post.

Pesticide Vorst killer' of innocent animals By IMC SWIHART Staff Writer PINCHER CREEK The poison 1080, used for pest con- trol in many rural areas, is "the worst killer of innocent animals" and should be used only as a last resort, said R. P. Finegan, a biologist with the B.C. government. Addressing the first annual meeting of the Foothills Pro- tective Association in the Pin- cher Creek Municipal Building Friday, Mr. Finegan said he can't complain about slaying an i m a 1 s which endanger people. "With the use of 1080, the real danger is secondary poi- he said. One ounce of 1080 is enough to kill coyotes and it has an effective life long enough that the poison can contami- nate other animals which come in oral contact with it later on. The poison affects the citric acid in the body, stopping the energy to the cells, he told 75 ranchers. This takes about 20 minutes and is why a rancher can find a dead coyote on his land when it was poisoned on his neighbor's land. The average person doesn't know enough about the poison Fire at Victoria Mansions Smoking in bed is believed to have been the cause of a minor fire at the Victoria Man- sions, 1002 3rd Ave. S., at about 3 a.m. today. Fire officials reported a smouldering mattress had to be carried from Suite 17 and ex- tinguished from a hose hook-up outside. Fire damage was restricted to the mattress, but much smoke had to be cleared from the building with smoke ex- tractor fans. There were no injuries and no smoke damage was report- ed. and how it works to use it prop- erly. Sir. Finegan told the mem- bers they had fallen victim to anti-shooting propaganda, even going so far as to vote for resolutions which would in- crease the restrictions already placed on law books. "Take away flrtiarms siui other materials which could be of danger to man, and he be- comes like a caged he said. He said groups such as the association should be upholding the individual rights of all men to use recreational hunting as a method of getting away from the rat race they face when forced to live in the city. He said there are agricultur- al and shooting estates on land which the landowner doesn't nay taxes for and therefore shouldn't have absolute power of control over. "Individuals don't own hunt- ing rights on their land because they don't pay taxes on the hunting he said. "Something "of national im- portance may depend on the rights of individuals being sur- rendered are we prepared to give up our rights in order to give wildlife a chance? "Already the laws on shoot- ing have restricted the individ- ual rights and many landown- ers are increasing these re- strictions. "By giving up some of our individual rights we may be able to save some animals, but the important thing here i' that we should not allow other people to use poison to kill the animals which we have given up individual rights to he said. As an incentive for the mem- bers attending the meeting to push for tighter controls in the use of 1080, Air. Finegan laid an action similar to what has happened in B.C. would appro- priate. "The B.C. government the coyote a game animal, which means the hunters must pay a fee to shoot he Mid. "There were coyotes killed in 1968 and this provided recreation for the hunter, as- sisted the farmer and rancher and is much better than using he said. CANT TALK WITH YOUR KIDS?
