Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 16, 1971 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD RCMP patrols to check rash of cattle thefts CALGARY (CP) An in- crease in cattle thefts has prompted stock growers to ask RCMP for night patrols in for- estry reserves leased as graz- ing areas. Robert Chalmers, secretary- treasurer of the South Sheep Creek Stock Association, said members have found at least four butchered animals in the last two weeks. Ranchers began checks of forestry points and two RCMP officers are to assist in watching as many exists as possible this weekend, Mr. Chalmers said. WATCH CONTINUES The watch which involves questioning of parsons entering and leaving the reserve and ve- hicle searches by would continue until roundup is completed near the end of the month. The 16 ranchers in the as- sociation decided to institute the checks earlier this week to protect head of cattle in the area southwest of Calgary. The four animals, valued at were found 40 miles from the city, Mr. Chalmers said, and it is "quite possible" another eight or 12 have been illegally slaughtered. The total number of cattle missing would not be known un- til the end of roundup, but in the last three years as many as 50 head have been killed. Rustling is difficult to check once hunting season starts, Mr. Chalmers said, because of the large number of people travel- ling in the forestry reserves. Immigration curbed by U.K. Homosexuals waiit legal marriages HAMILTON (CP) Homo- sexuals want legal marriages for tax reasons and to foil the designs of relatives, George Hyslop, founder of a Toronto homophile organization, said today. He told the annual meeting of the Canadian Mental Health As- sociation that legal marriage for homosexuals would protect jointly-owned property. He said he and another man have lived together for 13 years, acquired a considerable amount o f mutually-owned property, and are partners in a business. He said that although each has a will making the other his beneficiary, each would inherit only as a stranger, and would not have the tax benefits en- joyed by a surviving husband or wife. In addition, Mr. Hyslop said, when one member of a homo- sexual couple dies, "the family moves in to divide the spoils." LONDON (AP) Parliamen has psssed a new law curbin non-white immigration, abar doning a Commonwealth princ pie that all its citizens, whit and non-white, enjoyed Britis nationality and were free ti come and settle in Britain i they wished. This right after the Secon World War was gradually dim inished with immigration law in 1962 and 1068. These control followed a major growth of Brit ain's non-white nopulalion at companied by signs of racia tension. The new law is aimed at Com monwealth citizens whose Brit ish ancestry does not go back t the gramdnarerls. Since mos citizens of countries such a Canada, Australia and New Ze: land can produce such ancestry the immigration law's provi sions will affect the mass o non-white immigrants from re- gions such as India, Pakista: and the Caribbean. They must obtain a work per mit before they can enter tin country, and must r e g i s t e every year with the departmen of employment and productivitj and obtain its permission tc change their jobs for the firs four years of then- stay. Feuding farmers kill each other in duel MARMANDE, France (AP) Two farmers who argued for years over con- tested plots of land killed each other today in what appeared to be a duel. The farmers, Raymond C o m b 1 o n, 50, and Felix Choury, 45, were found lying in the middle of a road, ri- fles beside them, in the tiny farming village of Levig- nac-de-Guyenne in south- west France. Both were married and had large fam- ilies. The two men lived side by side in houses on the same street. Hell Know What to Do!

The term is at present vague and could range from drunkenness and disor- derliness to serious crime- The new law does not meet demands for a complete ban on non-white immigration made by Conservative MP Enoch Powell. Powell, however, said the bill would give the government power to control immigration absolutely and that its provi- sions to finance the voluntary repatriation o f immigrants could be used to reduce Brit- ain's non-white population, cur- rently estimated at 2.5 million. The bill, its long and difficult passage through both houses of Parliament completed this week, now awaits royal assent. This is expected before Oct. 28.

(CP) A conspiracy charge against the president of the National Farmers Union was dismissed following preliminary hearing in court today. Roy Atkinson of Saskatoon was charged after 40 tractors blocked a highway near here as part of a protest against the provincial government in Au- gust. Magistrate W. Chester S. MacDonald said the prosecution had not established that a crim- inal act was committed when Atkinson told police "I gave the order" to block the roads. He also said it had not been proved that Atkinson was the leader of the farmers or that he had been at a meeting called to plan Uie roadblock. LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) War fever is mounting along the border between West Pakistan and India. Motorists in Pakistan are dec- orating their cars with signs saying "Crush India." Bank of- ficials say many people are withdrawing their money or transferring their accounts to other .cities, and businessmen are sending away their families or making plans to do so. Peas- ant families are leaving their homes near the border. President Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan, who heads Paki- stan's military government, has I said publicly that war with India is inevitable if the Indians continue to back Bengali rebels in East Pakistan with arms, training and sanctuary. If a war is to be fought, mili- tary observers say, the time is right for Pakistan. Its Chinese allies can still move troops through the passes in the Himalayas, which will begin filling with snow in Nov- ember. The Pakistanis believe the threat of Chinese military pressure on India led to the halt of the last war between the two countries, which ended in stale- mate in 1965 on the fields around Lahore. The observers say Pakistan now has time to concentrate its troops for a war in the west while receding monsoon flood waters prevent a continued crackdown on the rebels in the East Pakistan, miles across India from West Paki- stan. The Pakistanis claim India has stationed troops around East Pakistan are building up along the western border with a number of mecha- nized units. NEW DELHI (Reuter) Prime Minister Indira Gandhi accused Pakistan Thursday of threatening to go to war with India and said Indians should be prepared for it.

TELEVISION IN 1972 He said "maybe" the 1D72 ses- sion will be televised. Pall sessions were expected to begin next year "provided we can work out with all MLAs that it just doesn't drone on and on and become an eight month session." One use of a fall session, be- sides dealing with such items as public accounts, could be to give the province an advance look at particular pieces of leg- islation. "I think the public will give us the opportunity to be in a position to be ahead of the problems. If we don't start (long-term planning) now, we won't get started." Initial months of a new gov- ernment was a "time of thought, assessment, long term thinking and planning not just for tomorrow but for the fu- ture."
