Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Gang roamed countryside looking for victims CHICAGO (AP) Sherill Richard Elrod says eight mem- bers of a black terrorist gang charged in the recent murders of nine persons were appar- ently "roaming Hie countryside looking for someone to kill." Authorities said apparently not all of the eight men charged had participated In all slayings. Elrod said Sunday the nine white victims, including the rnembevs of two separate fami- lies, apparently were selected at random by a Chicago street gang he said called it-self "Dc Man Man." When asked about possible racial motivation. Elrod said: "I can see no other apparent motivation." Six men arc being hekl with- out bond, two others are slill being sought. The murders took place in the Illinois commu- nities of Harrington Hills, Uonec, Highland Pa-k and Car- jondalc. ARMY RECORDS BAD Elrod, Ihe Cook County sher- iff, said the De Mau Mau or- ganization apparently was founded several years ago by Vietnam veterans who had been dishonorably discharged. 1 Charles Hurst, president of Malcolm X College in Chicago, said three of Ihe men charged had been students there, but he said they had been dismissed. He declined to elabovate. The most widely reported of the murders was the killing of retired insurance executive .nd three members of his fam- ily Aug. 4 in the wealthy Chi- cago suburb of Harrington Hills.

Coal slurry pipeline lias Davis wondering CRANBROOK (CP) Fed- eral environment minister Jack Davis says he is skeptical about a proposal to ship coal in slurry form via pipeline from the Elk River area in southeastern Bri- tish Columbia lo the coast. Mr. Davis said it would take a great amount of water in what is a water-short area. And he said the screening of the coal out of the water at the other ened raises all sorts o( environmental problems. He said his department would want to know what sort of mess is going to be left in the water when the coal is filtered out. Hangover experiments conducted Harold Cardinal approves fosler care finding 011 Indians Mr. Davis said the Shelpae Company, which proposed the pipeline project, lias not ap- proached Ottawa. He said they would need clearance from the i National Energy Board to co- struct a pipeline, and theiv would have to be public hear- j ings and investigations by his I department.

Dr. Gastorj Pawan of Lon- don's Middlesex Hospital medical school, claimed after experiments with 20 male vol-t unteers, that the worst hang- overs resulted from whiskey, brandy, rum and red wine. Pawan said his findings supported suggestions that the done by certain drinks was due to the chem- ical compounds that give them their distinctive flavor and maturity. Pawan gave his guinea pigs carefully measured quantities of alcohol at weekly intervals according to the drinkers' body weights. Pawan said the volunteers suffered more from the "heavier" alcohols of brandy and whiskey than from the "lighter" ones of gin and vocV.ta. He said the least pain- ful drink was a cocktail of pure alcohol and orange juice. Pattern bers of a rural Monee family were found shot to death in their fa'-mhouse. They were Stephen Hawtrce, 47; his wife, rudy, 53; and their son rhomas, 17. JET DEATHBED WORD Police managed to get a deathbed statement from an- other victim, William Richter, EDMONTON (CP) Harold Cardinal, president of the In- dian Association of Alberta, .says a report on Ihe care of foster children is the first to recognize that a lot of problems can be solved if Indian commun- ities sha're the responsibilities. The 105-page report said In- dian and Metis foster children should be placed with people of the own ancestry whenever possible, "It's the first recommenda- Tax looplioles cost Alberlaus i 'millions1 EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta could gain "millions and millions of dollars" in addi- tional corporate income lax from the oil and gas industry if tax loopholes are plugged, Grant Notley, provincial New Democratic Party leader, says. Mr. Notley, in a prepared outlining many of the views expressed by federal NDP David Lewis in his attack against corporate tax concessions, said manufac- turing is contributing "far more" in taxes than the oil and gas industry. He said 1969 "value added" figures for manufacturing in the province were two thirds of the mineral fuels sector, while manufacturing accounted for 24 per cent of Alberta's laxable income and mineral fuels per cent. He defined "value added" as measure of wages and salar- es minus the cost of materials nd supplies. Mr. Notley said ic disparity between the value added" figures and tax- ble income can be attributed o "some large tax concessions and loopholes open to the oil nd gas industry." 50 attend human lectures Fifty persons attended Ihe first in a series of eight lec- tures on the human situation held Thursday noon at Ihe Uni- versity of Lethbridge.

Referring to the recommen- dation that large reserves es- tablish multi sendee centres to deal with family problems, M- Cardinal said the provin- cial government would have to make sure the costs of such ser- vices would he covered by the federal government. He said the provincial gov- ernment should not stray into a position where it takes over res ponsibilify for services to Indians. A lot of problems ould arise if the financial as eel of the proposal is no Agreed upon between federa and provincial authorities. Mr. Cardinal approved of the ommittee's recommenda- ion that such centres be staffed with native social workers.

The program is rctroaclive to u 1 e s covering most govern- mental functions except educa- tion. In Canada, federal revenue- sharing Is managed In two ways. For some purposes, the fed- eral government agrees to turn over to the provinces a portion of the tax revenue that would normally go to the federal treasury. That makes it easier for provinces lo pay for pro- grams of their own. Tlie other method !s for federal government to sharfl the costs of joint federal-pro- vincial programs, such as medical and hospital Insurance, welfare and liighway construc- :ion.
