Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, October IS, 1970 Israel's Grand Old Man Lives In Near Solitude TEL AVIV (AP) - David Ben-Gurian will be 84 Friday. The diminutive statesman who helped found Israel and was its premier for years lives in near solitude in the Negev Desert. He has submerged himself in the past, compiling his memoirs, editing his letters and writing a history of Israel. He takes a three-mile walk every day, writes manuscript in longhand, sometimes in 17-hour stints and sleeps seven hours a night. His only company is a plainclothes bodyguard and a chauffeur. His wife died two years ago. Aides say his faculties are intact, his memory perfect and his grasp of modern issues remarkable. While Israeli leaders claim the Soviet Union aims at destroying Israel, Ben-Gurion recalls: "If it hadn't been for the So- DAVID BEN-GURION viet Union I don't know if we could have survived. They gave us arms, which we needed most in 1948." Time To Stand And Fight Declares Ontario Premier He does not believe Russia wants to annihilate Israel, "but they aren't our friends any more." DAYAN BEST He considers Moshe Dayan the best soldier Israel has produced, but criticizes the defence minister for refusing to invoke the death penalty against Palestinian Arab guerrillas. He also disagrees with the government's decision to suspend United Nations Middle East talks because of alleged Egyptian violations of a ceasefire. 'I don't have much hope for these talks, but when there is a desire to talk to us, then talks should be conducted," he says. Ben-Gurion feels Israel should withdraw from most of the Arab lands captured in 1967 if peace comes. Only Arab East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights of Syria should be retained, he adds. He predicts-without saying why-that peace will come to the Middle East in 10 to 12 years. Many Arabs, particularly in Egypt, seem to be fed up with the present situation," he observes. TORONTO (CP) - Premier John Robarts of Ontario said Wednesday the Quebec terrorist situation has evolved into "total war" and the time has come "to stand and fight." In an interview, the premier said the federal and Quebec governments must stop protecting the rights of the minorities at the expense of the majority -a situation that would be produced in any compromise with Montreal terrorists. Mr. Robarts, a navy lieutenant during the Second World War, said he has the greatest respect for kidnap victims James Cross and Pierre La-porte, but "some of us have OFC smooth OFC light OFC mellow QF.C. CANADIAN WHISKY seen hundreds of men and thousands of men killed in war." "There is no way that we can yield to these terrorist demands," he said. "It's the most difficult decision of all but there's no compromise." PREDICTS REPETITION "They will try the same thing again if they have any success this time." Mr. Robarts predicted a general crackdown on dangerously-militant dissidents in the wake of the Montreal kidnappings. "The law is being broken all the time in these demonstrations . . . police are being hampered and turned into bad guys and that's not right. "We've allowed some of our beliefs and institutions to come under attack and now we're paying for it." Nickel Price Raised TORONTO (CP) - International Nickel Co. of Canada Ltd. announced Wednesday an increase of about four per cent in the price of its primary nickel. The company said the increase was due to the increased value of the Canadian dollar in relation to other currencies. The federal prices and incomes commission said in a statement from Ottawa that International Nickel had provided the commission with information on the price increases. The commission said "it would undertake immediately a review" of the price changes. No Special Aid For Farmers OTTAWA (CP) - Regular but no special financial aid will be available to Canadian farmers importir.g Russian tractors, Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson said Wednesday in the Commons. He mentioned one means of such aid as the Farm Improvement Loans Act. He was replying to Rod Thomson (NDP- Battlef ord-Kindersley). Racism Rise In N.W.T. Reported EDMONTON (CP) - David Searle, a member of the North-w e s t Territories legislative council, says racism is emerging in the territories. He told a meeting at the University of Alberta that native organizations, backed by federal government grants, which divide and separate the people according to race, are not in the interest of unity. "A white brotherhood, running and supporting only whites could be condemned as racist and quite properly so. Special land, hunting and trapping rights for whites would also be condemned as backward, contrary to the principle of equality for Indians and Eskimos," he said' Mr. Searle said there is talk of native organizations in the territories run ning candidates in the December elections. "It is obvious what these organizations want for their people and that's equality, plus special additional rights to ownership of the land and any royalties that might come from the land-none of which the whites would enjoy even if born or raised in the Northwest Territories," he said. Despite council's wishes, he said, Ottawa will not declare itself a trustee of natural resources for the future providence of the north. Instead it declares itself sole owner and manager for now and for the foreseeable future. Mr. Searle said this leaves the territorial government with jurisdiction over game and the expenditure areas of health, welfare and education but with few ways to raise money. Headingley Jail Chief Dies, 58 WINNIPEG (CP) - William Lawson, 58, superintendent of Headingley jail, died at his home hero. Mr. Lawson, who began his career as a corrections officer at the provincial jail in 1946, is survived by a son in the RCMP in Ottawa and a daughter in greater Winnipeg. He became deputy superin tendent in 1956 and superintendent in 1968. A successor has i not been named. Report Suggests Campus Policemen Be Unarmed EDMONTON (CP) - A committee studying security services at the University of Alberta says campus policemen should not be armed. The committee, in a report made public today, says arms should be left to city police who can be called in immediately if serious trouble develops. "In view of the recent increase in incidents of violence on university campuses throughout North America, the question of arming the campus security personnel is frequently raised," the report says. In making its recommendation, the committee said it took into account the fact that "the Edmonton police department has the equipment and trained personnel to handle situations demanding the use of firearms." The report will be discussed at a special meeting of the university's general faculties council. MARGARET MEAD ON MODERN LOVE - Margaret Mead is an expert on sex morals and marriage customs.
