Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tundor, Oetrttr If, 1971 THI UTHMIDOr HIRAID 10 ROSENNHEIM, West Germany (Reuter) Soma 50 members of the Nazi Das Reich SS elite guard Division, which massa- cred more than GOO men. wom- en and children in a French village in 1944, wound up a con- ference here to form an old comrade's association with beer and wartime songs. The massacre was in revenge for the death of one SS officer. Middle-aged and many a little paunchy, they cheered as the chairman of the newly-formed OFF TO SCHOOL A group of boys includes, front left, Prince Edward, 7, youngest child of Queen Elizabeth. Previously tutored in Buckingham Palace, he is attending a preparatory school in London's Kensington section this year. Wartime Nazi butchei's form rou 'sealed in blood' association, Lt. Col. Gunther Wisliccncy, pledged them to "preserve the comrsdship of the last war, sealed in blood." Wisliceny, one of the most highly decorated officers in the Nazi forces, was chosen chairman of the association at the recent foundation mesting. He was the last commander of a Panzer regiment within the division. Units of Das Reich Division fought all through the Russian campaign and the retreat through Hungary, and also in France in tii3 closing stages of the Second World War. On June 1, 1944, a detach- i ment entered the French Vil- I lage ofOradour- sur-Glane, where an SS captain had been I shot, and wiped out the popula- tion. The 19 men were herded into barns which were set ablaze, while the 245 women and 207 children were mowed down by machine guns. Only 10 persons survived. After the war, 20 men were convicted of responsibility for the massa- cre. Two were executed. Other detachment of the divi- sion were accused of hanging partisans in the French village of Tullo and of various murders in the Soviet Union. Press officer Martin Schwa- ebe, who served as divisional j historian during the war, said the new association has no pol- itical aims. It was a social and welfare organization formed to maintain the division's tradi- tions "in the same way as mem- bers of British, French and American regiments had stayed together since the war." ASSINIBOIA, Sask. (CP) Like it or not, the federal Liber- als have made it hot for their candidate in the Nov. 8 byelec- tion in Assiniboia. Farmers in this federal con- stituency in southern Saskatche- wan, like farmers throughout the Prairies, are buzzing with discontent over the aborted grains-stabilization plan. Jim Hooker, a 61-year-old farmer and former member of the Saskatchewan legislature, is contesting the seat for the Lib- erals and some observers be- lieve he's fighting an impossible battle. But Mr. Hooker feels otherwise. The former MLA for Note- keu-Willowbunch concedes a victory of sorts to the Progres- sive Conservatives and New Democrats in having the stabili- zation plan withdrawn- "But it was a hollow victory at the expense of the western he said during a panel discussion attended by the other two ative Lawrence Watson and New Democrat Bill Knight. SEES LOSS Prison system has failed -Hastings OTTAWA (CP) The whole correctional process hcs failed, Senator Earl Hastings berta) told the Senate. Speaking in favor of a mo- lion to have a Senate inquiry into the parole system, he said he thinks the corrections sys- tem now accepts men 'lor pun- ishment in an all-corrupting at- mosphere." Most conditions in penal insti- tutions are a deterrent to reha- bilitation, he said. Men's spirit and pride are destroyed and they end up being far more dangerous to society after their incarceration than they were previously. But Senator Hastings snid he was not pointing an accusing finger at those responsible for Canada's penitentiary service. They are doing a difficult job and deserve profound admira- tion. For the most part, they are underpaid and understaffed, he said. Einstein idea still under study WASHINGTON (AP) Two scientists attempting to verify part of Einstein's theory of rela- tivity completed their second global flight within two weeks, but said it would be several weeks before they could draw any firm conclusions. Travelling around the world by commercial airline with a pair of super-accurate atomic clocks, the scientists were test- ing a theory advanced by Ein- stein in 1905 that dme is rela- tive. Einstein theorized that the time recorded by a clock de- pends on its speed relative to other objects in the universe, with time advancing more slow- ly the faster an object travels. If the theory is true, the sci- entists said, their atomic clocks should have lost about 1 bil- lionths of a second on an east- bound trip around the world two weeks ago and gained about 3-billionths of a second on the westward flight just completed in relation to an earthbound clock. Making the trip were Joseph C. Hafele, assistant professor physics at Washington Univer- sity in St. Louis and Richard Keating of the U.S. Naval Ob- servatory in Washington, D.C. DIVERTED FOR POWER Half the water that flows down from the Great Lakes to- ward Niagara Falls never maki's it to the falls because it's di- verted for electric power, offi- cials said. Had 52 wives NAIROBI, Kenya (Router) A former senior chief left be- hind 48 wives and ]52 children when he died, at Embu, 70 miles northeast of Nairobi. The Kenya news agency, reporting tiie fu- neral ceremony at Embu, said Komho Munyiri died at the age of 97. The chief, who retired in 1959, was survived by 48 of his 52 wives. Snow warnings in effect in U.S. areas CHICAGO (AP) Heavy snow warnings remained in ef- fect for the mountains and some lower areas of Wyoming, Colo- rado, Arizona and New Mexico early today after tornadoes ripped through Wray, Colo., and Garden City, Kan., and smaller twisters touched down at Ogal- lala and Paxton, Neb., and Lub- bock, Texas. The tornado at Garden City destroyed a number of homes, heavily damaged or destroyed several business buildings and farms and injured at least 10 persons. Authorities said the tornado that swept down without warn- ing on Wray in norUieast Colo- rado caused two injuries and an estimated damage. The national weather service said a large, complex low pres- sure system was producing the cold, rainy and snowy weather from Nevada to New Mexico and North Dakola. Haveii? SHOPFpS DRUG Gale appointed Alberta area vice-president EDMONTON (CP) Alfred J. Gale has been appointed Al- berta regional vice president of tire Western Canada Party. Mr. Gale, a 39-year-old air- craft maintenance engineer of Edmonton, succeeds Lloyd Bartlell of Edmonton who re- signed duo to pressure of busi- ness. Mr. Gale said a regional meeting was planned in Van- couver early next year, pos- sibly .Ian. 21 lo followed by an Alberta regional meeting in Calgary for which no dates have yet been set.

And so the stage has been set for the rapidly-closing campaign in a constituency that lost its representation in the Commons by the death of Liberal A. B. Douglas. It is the type of setting that has appeal to NDP supporters opportunity to lambaste federal agriculture policies. That tack was largely credited for (he party's provincial election victory over the former Liberal administration last June. But it still could be a close race if the pattern of the last federal general election in the riding is followed. In that 1968 election, Douglas deposed Watson by just 95 votes with a total of ballots in his favor. The NDP candidate, Bruce L. Wilson, wasn't too far off the mark either. He polled 341 fewer votes than Douglas. NDP HAS EDGE In the last nine byelections since the 19G8 general election, NDP candidates captured four seats, the Liberals three and the Conservatives two. Nomination day in Assiniboia is Oct. 25. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield, NDP Leader David Lewis and former leader T. C Douglas all have campaigned in the riding. Mr. Knight, a 28-year-old teacher from Weyburn, said Ms party accepts full credit for having the stabilization bill withdrawn from the Commons. Mr. Watson, who represented the riding for the Conservatives before his defeat in 1968, is a big, plain-speaking man who sav's "nobody needs to tell me the fanners' I've got them. He believes the Liberal government never had western interests at HIS 90TH Novelist P. G. Wodehouse, seated, laughs with pleasure as gift is unwrapped at celebration with friends in Riverhead, N.

Clapping in middle is the writer's wife, Ethe i x o n administration moves .his week to activate its post-rreeze machinery for controlling wages and prices while offering new proposals to strip away foreign barriers to U.S. trade. Domestically, the chief task remaining is naming members of the pay board and price commission. These newly-created wards will decide how much more Americans can get paid and how much businesses can charge after the freeze expires Nov. 13. Internationally, U.S. officials began a series of talks with its major trading partners in Paris, focusing on trade barriers, money-exchange rates and the 10-per-cent temporary import surcharge. Treasury Secretary John B. Ccnnally said the U.S. delegation will unveil a scries of specific requests that the trading partners remove barriers to U.S. exports. He also said the United States will consider selective removal of the import surcharge if other nations meet the United States' country-by-country demands for solving its balance-of-payments deficit. President Nixon scored a major victory on one front last week, when Japan agreed to limit sales of man-made and woollen textiles in the U.S. The surcharge on such textiles in being lifted, he said, since it does not apply to items covered by mandatory or voluntary quotas. With that victory salted away, U.S. treasury and federal reserve board officials are meeting in Paris this week with the 10 major non-Communist nations, including Canada, to begin work on resolving the international monetary deadlock and international trade barriers. Tlie United States wants other nations to revalue their currencies in relation to the for exchange purposes. This would make foreign goods pouring into the U.S. more expensive, thus enabling U.S. business to compete more effectively against them. The United Slates could achieve that result by devaluing the dollar, but Connally says there ere no plans to do so. of 145 and Can't Read?
