Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHPRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, October Premier named man of the year Davis tells audience: 'We like Americans9 Triumphal march Jubilant Bangkok students give victory signs as they ride a commandeered truck in the Thai capital. The government agreed to demands of the young demonstrators for a new constitution, elections and ex- ile for some of the old regime political figures. Longer deadline could be okayed OTTAWA (CP) The government will decide within a few days whether to extend the deadline for registering il- legal immigrants, says Im- migration Minister Robert Andras. There will have to be hard evidence an extension is re- quired before he reverses an earlier decision to end the program as scheduled at mid- night Monday night, he told reporters. "We don't have that evidence yet." Earlier, he invited opinion in the Commons on whether opposition parties feel an ex- tension is warranted. The New Democratic Party immediately offered to sup- port a one-month extension but the Conservative and Social Credit parties were non-commital An extension would require parliamentary approval. Mr Andras said he is grateful for the NDP support, but this in itself will not per- suade the government to act It would have to be sure there still are enough people waiting to register to make an extension worthwhile Also, it had to take into ac- count the impression an ex- tension might create among thousands of persons abroad wanting to come to Canada. The government does not want to encourage foriegners to head for Canada in large numbes to search for im- migration loopholes, he said. Mr Andras told the Com- mons a total of im- migrants have benefited from the program. This in- cluded dependents of persons who have come forward. Although he had rejected an extension earlier, Mr. Andras said the government is willing to listen to opinions on the subject. The program was a success and the government was satisfied it had reached the people it was designed to reach Estimates of the number of illegal immigrants in Canada Awareness 'creates controls9 PRINCE ALBERT (CP) The president of the Canadian Institute of Forestry says in- creased awareness by Canadians of the social and economic values of forest resources has created greater government involvement in forestry management. Walter Giles of Toronto told the institute's annual meeting that as land becomes more scarce it will be managed more intensively, controlled more strictly and appreciated more by all Canadians. have ranged from 50.000 to 200.000 but the minister said no reliable figures are available David Orlikow nipeg North) said there is every reason to extend the deadline. The daily increase in the number registering un- der the program indicates that initial fears among im- migrants have been allayed and every opportunity should be given for them to come forward, he said Lindoln Alexander West) called the program magnificent and unique but said "we're not go- ing to tell the minister what to do." Instead, he said, the govern- ment should "give us the facts" on whether an exten- sion is warranted "and we'll approve it with an open mind Legislation for the program set a 60-day period for illegal immigrants to apply for land- ed immigrant status without penalty The 60-day period started Aug. 15 Voodoo cult probed MIAMI, Fla here are investigating a voodoo cult in the Latin com- munity following the slaying of a man reported to have threatened to use the head of his attacker in a sacrificial ritual. Police said they were sifting through the belongings of Juan Olivier Hernandez, 36, for informa- tion about the cult and clues to the identity of his killer. One officer said they found a "lot of weird stuff" in his room. Hernandez was killed when he was shot three times by an attacker who, witnessed said, had chas- ed him through Miami's Little Havana section. Police said witnesses told them Hernandez had earlier told the killer, described as a male in his 30s, that he in- tended to use his head in a sac- rificial rite. These witnesses also told police Hernandez practised a form of voodoo or black magic. Police said there were a number of bizarre incidents in the city's Latin community during the weekend. Roberto Gonzalez, 42, dis- covered the skinned body of what appeared to be a dog in front of his home. The body of the animal had pennies under its feet, a banana in its mouth and an apple in its roc turn, po- lice said. By OERIK HODGSON MIAMI, Fla. (CP) Premier William Davis has told an enthusiastic American audience that they should not be alarmed by reports of Canadian nationalism. Speaking to the American Transit Association, the pre- mier said Americans "still hold a warm spot in the hearts of Canadians." The premier was named the transit industry's man-of-the- year at the association's an- nual meeting and he was laud- ed for his administration's transit policies and dramatic proposals for an elevated, magnetic commuter train. Stanley Gates, president of the association, called the premier a leader in the transit field and said that in Ontario "transit policy really did put people first." The premier received two standing ovations from the 500 delegates attending the meeting. Before the award presenta- tion, the premier outlined On- tario's transit policies and the push toward innovations SYSTEM EXPLAINED He emphasized the elegated rail system, which Ontario hopes to have operational by 1977. Mr. Davis said Ontario holds the technological rights for the new intermediate capacity system and has set up an Ontario Transportation Development Corp. to research and develop a full range of transit products for Canadian and export mar- kets. Delegates at the convention have shown much interest in the million Ontario plan and Claude Brinegar, U.S. secretary of transportation, said that if it works he might be up to take a look at it. Under a-deal with Krauss- Maffei of West Germany, On- tario acquired the exclusive rights to market the elevated rail technology in North and South America. Later, in an interview, he said that even if a U.S. com- pany bought directly from the German manufacturer a 10- percent royalty would accrue to Ontario. However, even with On- tario's vested interest in the project, the premier said he has not been out selling the proposal. But he met briefly during the morning with Mr Brinegar, and one of Davis's chief transportation aides was mingling with delegates The premier made several references to Canada-U.S. friendship during his talks and said Canadians sometimes feel they are not understood by their American neighbors. But he said his award would help change that attitude. The premier, who is a fre- quent Florida visitor, has a condominium 30 miles north of here and intimated he may spend a day there before re- turning to Queen's Park. In his wide ranging 35- minute speech, the premier singled out the automobile as the chief villain of today's urban society. Without mass transit, he said, cities tend to become one big parking lot and highways and expressways strangle a city to death. However, he warned the delegates that mass transit and land-use controls go hand in hand. He said in the future politi- cians and planners will have to show more "bloody-mind- edness" in their approach to this problem. He said politicians have to accept the fact that tough decisions have to be made and that the status quo cannot be maintained. "I must tell you that when Ford to be first Senate witness as hearings begin on nomination WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate rules committee plans to call Representative Gerald Ford as its first witness at hearings on his nomination to be vice-president, a spokesman has said However, the question of whether the Senate Com- mittee or the House of Representatives judiciary Committee will be the first to begin hearings is unresolved. A spokesman for Howard Cannon Dem.-Nev. chairman of the rules committee, said this may be settled at a com- mittee meeting today. At that meeting the com- mittee is expected to receive a justice department report on how soon the FBI can com- plete a full field investigation of Ford, Republican leader of the House since 1965. Senate committee members have indicated they want the FBI report and other background information on the 40-year-old Michigan con- gressman before the hearings begin. Americans generally approve of Ford's selection a special Gallup Poll com- missioned by The New York Times showed. Of 720 adults contacted by telephone during the weekend, 66 per cent said they approved of the nomination, seven per cent expressed disapproval and 27 per cent had no opinion. Senate leaders favored joint Senate-House hearings to avoid duplication and speed up action but House leaders re- jected this before Ford was nominated. An Associated Press survey has shown a majority of Senators and Representatives intend to vote for Ford's con- firmation barring unforseen developments. The Senate committee said it is seeking the aid of the General Accounting Office, Congress' investigative arm, and that Library of Congress, in gathering information on Ford, nominated by President Nixon after the resignation of Spiro Agnew. A simple majority of both the House and Senate is re- quired to confirm the nomination you make a decision when you shatter the mold of con- ventional practice, a refreshing spirit of creativity and innovation emerges." Liquor laws reviewed at WELLINGTON, N.Z. (CP) A royal commission has begun hearings here into the country's liquor laws and what the people think of them. And right from the start some radical changes have been proposed. It was only in recent years that approval for hotels to stay open at night was received. Before then the hotels closed at 6 p.m. Now they stay open until 10. LAST ATTRACTION TORONTO (CP) While the Yonge Street Mall has been dismantled after the summer, one attraction remains.
