Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta CLOUDY FORECAST HIGH TUESDAY 50-55 The Lethktdge Herald VOL. LX1V No. 260 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1971 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 18 PAUES Visiting Soviet premier mauled Connally says surcharge temporary may lift tax within three months By ROD CURRfE WASHINGTON (CP) Treasury Secretary John Connally said Sunday be would hope Uiat "two or three months from now" the United States would no longer need the 10-per-ce'nt import surcharge it im- posed last August to help right its trading position. Re-emphasizing that the surcharge is a "tempor- ary he said: "I wouldn't want lo put a time frame on it. We obviously need it now. I would hope two or three months from now we won't need it, but it may be three or four months. "It depends on how things go ui the international monetary field. It depends a great deal on what our trading partners are ready to do or willing to do." Connally made the remarks on the weekly ABC television program, Issues and Answers. The U.S., he said, was not alone in making the decision. "We have to respond and we're prepared to respond" to initiatives taken by trading partners. Changing system He said the U.S. and other countries were in the process of "restructuring the whole monetary sys- tem." The U.S. and "the other countries" didn't want to go back to the old system. Asked whether Ihe lifting of the surcharge on a selective basis as in tho case of some Japanese and other Icxtilc imports didn't antagonize trading partners rather than make their: more competitive, Connally replied: "They use the imposition of Uie surtax as a bar- gaining lever. They cry about it and weep about it but Ihe trulli of the matter is that it doesn't make that much of an impact." The U.S., because it's the largest and strongest, is "always the whipping boy" for many coimlries around the werld who blame L U.S. for a great many do- mestic, political and economic problems they now have." He added: "We had a recession here in and 1970 of monumental proportions. We didn't blame our balance of payments for thai, did we? We didn't blame France or Canada or Germany or Japan." KOSYGIN ATTACKED Russian Premier Alexei N. Kosygin (cenlre) facing cameras, is shown at the moment he was attacked by an unidentfiied man as he left the Parlia- ment buildings following talks with Prime Minister Trudeau today. Baseball victory triggers orgy PITTSBURGH (AP) A huge World Series victory cele- bration exploded Sunday night into a rampage of destruction, looting and sex-in-lhe-streets. Newspaper men reported two apparent assaults, some of them in full view of hundreds who cheered Uie assailants, and dis- plays of public lovemaking, nud- ity and drinking. At the height of the melee a police desk sergeant said he had calls reporting about a dozen rapes. But officials denied today that they had such reports.

The rampage was triggered by the Pittsburgh Pirates' 2-1 victory Sunday over Baltimore Orioles in baseball's seventh and deciding game of the World Series in Baltimore. It began as a jubilant but non- violent celebration, but quickly turned into a full-blown riot. The wild celebration created the worst traffic jam in the city's history. At its height, cars were backed up for eight miles on one major freeway into the city and for six miles on another. Police finally seal- ed the downtown area in an attempt to relieve the tieups, but it was four hours before it had any effect. CANCEL PARADE So wild was the rampage that the Pirates cancelled a planned midtown victory parade. But some of the players, apparent- ly unaware of the cancellation, somehow got downtown any- way and were mobbed. One of those taken to a hos- pital was Mrs. Joseph Walton, daughter of Pirates' manager Danny Muriaugh. Mrs. Walton, about four months pregnant, was overcome as officials were trying to organize the victory parade. Hospital officials de- scribed her condition as good, but said she was being kept overnight for observation.

He told the Commons lie has asked for an explanation of how the incident could have occurred under the fight security precautions in effect for the Soviet leader's visit. OTTAWA (CP) Soviet Pre- mier Alexei Kosygin was at- tacked by a man on Parliament Hill today and his coat was half pulled off before security police hauled the attacker away. Prime Minister Trudeau helped the v isit i n g Soviet leader, who was half pushed down, to his feet. Mr. Kosygin's hair was ruffled and bystanders said he looked shaken. But he apparently was unhurt. He and Mr. Trudeau had just left the Centre Block when the incident occurred. The man was shouting "Long live free Hun- gary." Mr- Kosygin and Mr. Trudeau were walking from the Centre Block to the East Block, chat- ting as they went, while secu- rity police roughly cleared the way through protesters. One man in the crowd was screaming "Go home, Soviet as the attacker leaped over a barricade and hauled Mr- Kosygin's suit coat over his shoulders. The swarthy, black-haired at- tacker, wearing a black jacket, was pinned to the ground by police. appeared to be about 30 and said he was a member of the "Canadian Freedom Fight- ers Federation." Another man. wearing a blue jacket, was taken out of the crowd by police. The attack came after a last- minute decision to stroll down the driveway in front of the Parliament Buildings rather than get into a limousine at the Centre Block door as planned. Mr. Kosygin and Mr. Trudeau shook hands, then began walk- ing. Mr. Trudeau tried to keep the premier moving as the attacker approached and tried to shield the premier. After the attack, Mr- Trudeau and Mr. Kosygin took shelter in the side entrance of the East Block while the limousine was brought down, and police hus- tled the attacker away- 40 die in Lima tremor LIMA (Renter) Rescue workers prepared to fight their way through thousands of tons of fallen rock today to reach an earthquake-stricken valley in southeast Peru where a t least 40 persons arc known to have died. An estimated people live in the remote Aimaraes Valley in the foothills of the Andes, which has been almost totally cut off from the outside since the quake Friday. A group of mountain-dwellers who brought first word of the disaster to the town of Abancay after walking 25 miles from the devastated area said dozens of persons were injured in the tremors that hit the entire prov- ince of Aimaraes. It was the most violent inci- dent of the initial 24 which have found demonstra- tors the Soviet leader's first visit to Canada. Earlier today, two bombs and 1 Molotov cocktails were found near the Soviet embassy. Even as the visiting premier arrived on Parliament Hill for the first of two lengthy confer- ences with Mr. Trudeau, three men were in police custody after the discovery of two dyna- mite bombs near the Soviet em- bassy. City police said the men are from Montreal and described them as anti-Communists. Later in Ihe morning police found 1! Mololov cocktails in a park one block from the em- bassy and the scene of a person anli-Sovict demonstra- tion Sunday night. CALLS ON TRUDEAU Soviet Premier Kosygin (left) Is greeted by Prime Minister- Trudeau as he drives at the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa today for talk! with Can- adian officials. Three Montreal men held in Kosygin bomb scares OTTAWA (CP) Three Montreal men who described themselves as anti-Communists were arrested early today as two dynamite bombs were found near the Soviet embassy. Visiting Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin was spending his first night in Canada, on an eight- day official visit, at the Chateau Laurier hotel, about one mile away. Later, hordes of police de- scended upon the embassy area to search for other bombs. They found 11 Molotov oline-filled 11 a.m. in the east-end residential area, location of many foreign embassies. The cocktails were found in a park one block from the embassy. Police said the first bomb was found after a man was spotted about 2 a.m. EDT, carrying a brown paper shopping bag in the immediate vicinity of the embassy, a grey concrete struc- ture surrounded by a high iron fence. THROWN ON LAWN He was chased and caught five blocks away on Chapel Street, where he threw the bag on a lawn. The bomb was dis- mantled at a.m and an unconfirmed report said it was timed to go off at a.m. There was no immediate evi- dence connecting the bomb scares with the presence in the city of Mr. Kosygin, who ar- rived Sunday night to start an eight-day Canadian visit. However, police pointed to tho coincidence of the two events and invited reporters to "draw your own conclusions." PROTESTS TO CONTINUE Jewish teen-age demonstra- tors were outside the hotel as he left and later turned up on the Hill. Jewish groups have vowed to demonstrate throughout Mr. Kosygin's stay here against the Kremlin's refusal to allow large numbers of Jews to emigrate from the Soviet Union. With Mr. Trudeau on the Ca- nadian side of Ihe table were Senator Paul Martin, govern- ment leader in the Senate, who will accompany Mr. Kosygin on his trans-Canada tour and Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp. The Canadian delegation also included Robert Ford, Canada's ambassador in Moscow, A. E. Ritchie, deputy external affairs minister, and a number of offi- cials from the prime minister's office and the external affaire department- The makeup indicated inter- national affairs might be the first topic on the agenda. Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Kosygin were expected to examine both international and bilateral topics in their formal discus- sions today and Tuesday. Mr. Kosygin was greeted on his arrival Sunday night by Mr- and Mrs. Trudeau. The ceremonies at Uplands airport Sunday night went off with stiff from the fact that Mr. Kosygin emerged from the rear door of In's Ilyushin 62 jetliner instead of the front door as expected. Jetliner lii jacked in Alaska ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Security officials at Anchor- age International Airport said today a Wien Consolidated Air- lines Boeing 737 jetliner had been hijacked in Anchorage. The official said the airliner took off at a.m. with the hijacker aboard after an un- known number of passengers were allowed to disembark.

U.S. Ambassador George Bush proposed the two-China formula at the opening of the China representation debate in the 131-country General Assem- bly. lie spoke afler Foreign Minis- ter Ncsti Mase of Albania called for the expulsion of Taiwan mid the seating of the Peoples Re- public, Bush described the U.S. pro- posals to seat Taiwan in tho. as- sembly and the Peoples Repub- lic in the assembly and Security Coimcil as "realistic and prag- matic" in that they recognize the existing situation in China today. He said the issue before tho members was not the admission of the Peoples Republic, which the U.S- supported, but the cx- p u I s i o n of Uie Nationalists, whom he described as members in good standing, construclivo and faithful. He said the UN Charter was flexible enough in 1945 to permit membership f o r Byelorussia and the Ukraine, both republics within the S'oviet Union, and it now is flexible enough lo permit the U.S. proposal. Bush also called for priority for the U-S. resolution that says any move to expel Taiwan must be regarded as an important question requiring n two-thirds majority of those voting. His wording indicated he meant that the entire Albanian resolution, even that pertaining to Uie seating of Who Peoples Republic, would require a two- thirds majority. Masc said the assembly must defeat all U.S. two-China "ma- noeuvres." Tho Peoples Repub- lic would not sit in the UN while the Nationalists remain. Mase said the U.S. desire lo detach the "province" of Tai- wan from the "other country" was an open act of aggression against the Peoples Republic. It was a continuation of the U.S. "anU-Chincse" policy, which is designed to keep the Peking re- gime from UN Thief likes sugar creau ivilh coffee EDMONTON (CP) Tho thief in the Crown attor- ney's office obviously likes cream and sugar wilh his coffee.
