Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE LETHBR1DGE HER AID - Friday, October 16, 1970 Bucher Plans To Retire MONTEREY, Calif. (Reuter) - Cmdr- Lloyd Bucher, 43, former captain of the ill-fated U.S. spy ship Pueblo, will retire from the navy next year after 20 years service, it was announced here. Bucher, whose ship and crew of 82 were seized by North Korea in 1968, said the navy exercised no pressure upon him but that he felt he could not pass the physical examination necessary for further promotion. He has been stationed at the navy post-graduate school here since the Pueblo affair was officially closed. His career prospects were compromised by a navy board of inquiry recommendation that he be court-martialed for surrendering his ship without a fight. He and his crew were held captive in North Korea for 11 months. CMDR. BUCHER ... No Pressure Police Take Over Rebel Town REGGIO CALABRIA (AP) -A force of 15,000 policemen broke throtigh the barricades north of the rebellious town of Reggio Calbria today and restored road and rail contact between it and the rest of Italy. It was the first time in nine days the road had been open to traffic in and out of Reggio, a city paralysed by a bloody revolt against the government's decision not to make it the capital of a region in southern Italy. The police smashed through chains of roadblocks to reach Bagnara Calabria, 18 miles north of Reggio, and reopened the Superhighway of the Sun, Italy's main north-south artery. Residents of Reggio, a city of 170,000 and one of Italy's poorest areas, say their city must be the capital if they are to survive. Japan WonH Folloiv Canada TOKYO (Reuter) - Japanese Premier Eisaku Sato said today he has no intention of changing government policy to follow Canada in establishing diplomatic relations with China. He made the statement, Japan's first official reaction to Canada's recogniion of the Peking government Tuesday, at a televised news conference. Japan currently has diplomatic relations only with Nationalist China while maintaining economic relations with both Chinas. Sato said he never had been hostile to Peking, but on the contrary "my earlier statement that Japan is ready to hold ambassadorial talks with Peking any time anywhere remains unchanged." Manila Death Toll Mounts MANILA (AP) - The unofficial death toll from a typhoon that slammed into the Philippines reached 200 today and was expected to increase as new reports from isolated areas came in. Late news reports from southern Luzon, hardest hit when typhoon winds of more than 140 miles an hour were recorded Tuesday, told of death and destruction. Government agencies earlier reported that tens of thousands were homeless in a 500-mile-long area stretching from Zam-boanga Island in the deep south to Luzon Island in the north. The Manila Times said Naga in Camarines ur with a population of about 70000, was more than half under water. New Instant Abortion Pill Will Be Available Soon TOKYO (Reuter) - A U.S. state -department doctor said today successful preliminary tests have been carried out on an instant abortion pill which Pearl gets invited to a lot of weddings Porphyry Pearl that is. A light, bubbly wine that's helped toast a host of brides lately. Why? Because Porphyry Pearl's clear pearly colour, zesty bubbles, and not-too-sweet, not-too-dry taste... all add up to a delicious and eye-appealing treat And maybe it's because, served at the right temperature (50� F.) Porphyry Pearl is amazingly like champagne. Imported from the vineyards of Australia, this is fine light wine yon can serve with pride and confidence. For an occasion such as toasting t)\e bride. Or simply a private toast at home. Because Porphyry Pearl is pure wine... made 100% from grapes. Porphyry Pearl creates its own bubbles - all by itself. Porphyry Pearl... in a champagne glass! Served cold, it speaks a warm welcome. would be available in two or three years. Dr. R. T. Ravenhold, director of the state department's office of population, described the new birth control method to delegates from 21 countries on the final day of a conference on Asian population programs. Ravenhold said: "This is going to free women forever from the reproductive slavery. For the first time a woman will be able to have perfect control over her menstrual period and the only babies born are going to be wanted babies." Ravenholt said the new pill-not taken orally but inserted into the vagina-was based on prostaglandins, fatty acid compounds found naturally in the body which are already used to induce labor in overdue pregnant women. Ravenholt said that prostaglandin had initially been administered intravenously to a number of women, resulting in a high rate of abortions. < The drawback was that this could take up to 24 hours with some toxic side affects, he said. But a pill version now under trial would induce instant abortion, he said. It had been tried on 12 women and all had immediate abortions. The pill would be administered by the woman vaginally to produce menstruation, Ravenholt explained. The advantages of such once-a-month contraceptives were obvious, he said. And in practice the pill would only be adminis-tertd probably a few times a year, at a time of delayed menstrual period. SHARK SPUTNIK MOSCOW (Reuter) - An artificial research satellite, the In-tercosmos IV, containing Soviet, East German and Czechoslovak equipment, was launched into orbit Wednesday, Tass news agency said. It will carry out joint research by the three countries into the sun's ultra-violet and x-ray radiations, the agency said.
