Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOQE HERALD-Thursday, Oetobtr News In brief Wins literature award STOCKHOLM (CP) Aus- tralian novelist Patrick White, writer of ironic, visionary epics of pioneering life, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature today The Swedish Academy cited the 60-year-old British-born writer and RAF veteran "for an epic and psychological narrative art which has in- troduced a new continent into literature." His latest novel. The Eye of The Storm, was published this year and among his other best known works are Happy Valley and the Tree of Man. The citation said White for the first time has given Aus- tralia an authentic voice that carries across the world. At the same time his writings contributed to the ar- tistic development of contem- porary literature, the Swedish Academy said.

Low supply, high prices reason Energy slowdown hinted Political activity banned SANTIAGO (Reuter) Chile's military regime Wednesday banned all political activity and ordered all political movements to suspend activities. The order included suspen- sion of political parties which opposed the left-wing govern- ment of former president Salvador Allende. The ruling junta, which seiz- ed power during a violent coup in September, has already outlawed Communist, Socialist and other left-wing parties OTTAWA (CP) supplies and soaring prices of energy will force Canada and other rich countries to slow down energy consumption and alter lifestyles, says John Deutsch, former chairman of the Economic Council of Can- ada. Mr. Deutsch, now principal of Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., said Wednes- day that increasing energy use at current rates would create social and economic problems including the capaci- ty of society to solve. His speech to an energy seminar held by the Royal Society of Canada won back- ing from Marion Brechin, president of the Consumers' Association of Canada, and from Ian Efford, adviser to the Science Council of Canada. Mra. Brechin said the con- sumer is still being encourag- ed to use ever greater amounts of scarce energy resources better the power to control energy waste by industry Mr. Efford said the critical The DALLAS HOTEL Presents Gary Sullivan (Country and Western) Tonight For Your Listening Pleasure May reject peace prize PARIS (AP) A North Vietnamese official indicated Wednesday that Politburo member Le Due Tho may re- ject the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to him jointly with State Secretary Henry Kissinger of the United States "I am only expressing my personal the official said, "but I would be very sur- prised if Le Due Tho accepts the prize The official declined the use of his name. The official said the award was particularly in- appropriate because it placed Tho and Kissinger as peacemakers on the same level North Vietnam has never conceded that the Viet- nam ceasefire negotiated by Tho and Kissinger was a political compromise, but still describes the settlement as a "great victory" for Hanoi be- cause it forced the United States to withdraw all its forces question now is not how to supply more energy, but how to reduce the rate of increase in demand. He called on governments to take the lead in energy conservation. Mr. Deutsch told the forum that a continued rise in energy consumption is incompatible with inexpensive supplies, abundance and environmental quality POOR WOULD SUFFER Canada could choose to maintain current lifestyles, using mounting quantities of fuels. But oil, gas and coal will eventually run out Mean- time, prices would rise, hitting the poor hardest. And pollution would be a growing problem. Mr. Efford said that know- how already exists to enable industry and householders to limit the increase in energy consumption. Heating could be made more efficient in offices and factories, and insulation could be improved. Office lighting is needlessly over- bright in most cases, he said. Reducing energy consump- tion could cut present costs and stretch supplies for the future.

Crews site fires in Pass area CRANBROOK. B.C.

MPs resume hanging talks By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA Com- mons resumes debate today on which types of murderers should face hanging. As early as tonight, but more likely after considerable extended debate, MPs could decide the fate of the govern- ment proposal to establish another five-year ban hanging for most types of murder. Virtually all MPs expect the voting tonight and in the future to be close. The Commons will have ex- tended hours until the issue, brought before Parliament in January, is decided. No other business is expected to be transacted The House moves to capital punishment after giving ap- proval in principle Wednesday to proposed increased family allowance payments. That proposed legislation, supported by all parties, will raise allowances to a monthly average of from the current flat rate of It also will make benefits taxable for the first time since the program began in 1945. Cold-war dickering issue at UN UNITED NATIONS (CP) The elements for a major East-West clash over Korea, with the prospect of a revival of coldwar dickering, are tak- ing shape in the United Nations. At issue is the question of UN membership for Korea and the question of what to do about the UN command and the United States troops still guarding South Korea two decades after the Korean War. The problem, being debated in committee, is scheduled to surface in general debate within the next few weeks. All capital punishment votes are free, meaning MPs vote according to their con- sciences without party guidance. In the spring, after prolong- ed debate, the bill to limit capital punishment to murderers of police officers and prison guards for another five years received second reading by a vote of 138 to 114. The vote was good enough for Solicitor-General Warren Allmand to propose that hang- ing be banned altogether in favor of longer prison terms. The idea was defeated in com- mittee. At the end of today's debate, MPs will vote on two amend- ments which would include more murderers in the bill. An amendment by Albanie Morin would apply the rope to per- sons found guilty of murder following deaths resulting from rape and kidnapping. HIJACKERS CITED One by Allan Lawrence Northumberland- former Ontario attorney-general, calls for hanging of aircraft hijackers who cause death and to second-time murderers. At p.m. there will be formal votes on these two amendments and possibly on whether the Commons should report the bill as having pass- ed through detailed com- mittee study. Assuming MPs agree to re- port the bill, debate will start on third and final reading This debate could last a week, with all sittings extended until the bill is dealt with. If the majority vote against reporting the bill, it will die The first five-year ban on most hanging ended last De- cember. Since then the old law, which says those guilty of premeditated murder face hanging, has applied. The government has com- muted all death sentences to life in prison since the last hanging in 1962. Some retentionists say the whole capital punishment de- bate is an exercise in futility because the Trudeau govern- ment never will permit a hanging. GOV'T SPENDING CAUSING HASSLE EDMONTON (CP) The progressive Conservative government is trying to "muzzle" members of the legislature during debate on government spending, says Social Credit House Leader Bob Clark He said in an interview the government "is trying to br- ing down a guillotine rule" that would force closure on legislative committee debate of spending estimates in the annual budget The rule, proposed in a report tabled in the House Wednesday by a legislative committee, would require a final vote on all departmental spending estimates after 40 hours study by the house supp- ly committee. This would cut off MLA's questions whether they were finished or not, Mr. Clark said. He pointed out that discus- sion of detailed spending es- timates took 59 hours during the spring session and nearly 63 hours during the 1972 sit- ting. If the 40-hour "guillotine rule" is imposed, there would be nothing to stop the government's backbenchers from taking up the time, or for the ministers themselves to give rambling speeches, leaving no time for detailed questioning by the opposition, he said. Mr Clark, minister of education in the former Social Credit government, said that if next year's budget comes in at 6 billion, it would mean the government would ask the legislature to approve spending at the rate of million an hour.
