Box 466 St. Paul, Alberta TO 3AO Canal crossing landmark in warfare Friaay, octooer if, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD CAIRO (AP) The secret night-time tank crossing de- scribed by U.S. Army Secretary Howard Callaway as a landmark in modern war- fare was the result of six years of practice using scale models of the Suez canal and the Israeli defence line on the east bank. "During the past six years we conducted 300 experiments to overcome the waterway and the Bar Lev line and assault the strong points" of the Israeli defence line, says Maj -Gen. Jamal el Din Mohammed AH, an Egyptian military spokesman. The full-scale models are being kept in a secret place, Ali told reporters Thursday as he recounted some of the diffi- culties in breaching the Bar Lev line. In San Francisco, Callaway said in a speech Wednesday that the Egyptian crossing in the face of superior Israeli air power was an event that will change military strategy. MAJOR ACHIEVEMENT Callaway said it was the first time in modern history that such a major waterway crossing had taken place in the face of superior air power without the assaulting country losing some of its own air- craft Many strategists have con- cluded that the key to the Egyptian assault was the Soviet ground-to-air missiles which are reported to have taken a heavy toll in Israeli fighters. Callaway said that if the crossing was accomplished with the use of sophisticated missiles, changes will have to be made in military strategy. The fortified Bar Lev line was built by the Israelis after they swept over the Sinai peninsula and the east bank of the Suez during the six-day 1967 war. FAST CROSSING The Egyptian crossing, which apparently took the Israelis by surprise and threw them off balance, was ac- complished in only six hours, President Anwar Sadat told the Egyptian National Assembly Tuesday. He described it as "one of the most glorious days of history." Gen. Ali said every military commander should have full- scale models of obstacles for training purposes He said Egyptian soldiers discovered pipes at each of 30 strong points on the Bar Lev line and suggested these pipes were designed to spew "fire streams" at assailants from the west bank. The pipes, leading into the canal, were connected to tanks in the strong points fill- ed with "inflammable he said. DETAILS UNCLEAR He did not make clear whether the Israelis actually used these devices to counter the Egyptians. Other points he made about the crossing: Bar Lev line was "one of the most formidable defence lines in history because it was at the very edge of a wide waterway." of the 30 strong points on the line was "fully manned'' by a force of up to a battalion of Israeli infantry when the Egyptians attacked. the unofficial Mid- dle East ceasefire, Israelis had raised existing sand barriers 24 feet all along the east bank, reaching down to the water's edge and im- peding tanks crossing the waterway which is up to 600 feet wide. barriers had to be breached first, he said. Bar Lev strong points were equipped to serve as platforms for defending tanks. He claimed the Egyptian army discovered sufficient provisions, fuel and ammuni- tion for the machine guns, ar- tillery, mortars and tanks at the strongpoints. obstacles includ- ed ties of up to 4.5 feet high and cross-currents at the southern end of the Suez canal. Ah did not give a detailed description of the actual assault on the east bank beyond saying that "we used almost every kind of crossing equipment known in the world." Alberta short of engineers EDMONTON (CP) -There are more engineering jobs in Alberta than there are qualified engineers to fill them, the president of Alberta's Engineering Association says. Ron Dalby, provincial presi- dent of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta, said in a joint statement with the provincial industry and commerce department that there are currently 500 job vacancies for engineers in the province. "The engineering profes- sion is one route by which Alberta's young people may gain maximum benefits from the many years of major development now beginning and planned for the future."

HEAVY DEMAND Mr Dalby said projects studying the construction of a natural gas pipeline along the Mackenzie Valley have added to the heavy demand for engineers and engineering technicians. The provincial engineering association and the industry department are concerned that they might not be able to supply highly qualified engineering personnel for in- dustrial projects, Mr. Dalby said. "To meet the demand it may be necessary to recruit qualified engineers from other countries." Industry Minister Fred Peacock said in the statement that the engineering profes- sion must play an increasingly important role in "the design of policies" to ensure that in- dustrial projects benefit Albertans. The engineering association estimates it will take at least six years to overcome the shortage as four years are re- quired for university training and a minimum term of two years supplementary ex- perience is required for professional registration.

Solicitor-General Warren Allmand promised to check that claim. If true, he told the Commons, it would only sup- port his belief that overcrowding caused the three-day outbreak at the maximum security prison.
