Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta in election campaign Liberals are disturbed about new 'stud' posters OTTAWA (CP) An RCMP informant soys of the caixliciatcs entered in tlic Oct. 30 election are graded by Ihe force as Maoist, or Marxist-Leninist, members of the Communist party of Can- lie says there is a "Maoist desk" at RCMP national head- quarters set up some time ago, keeping tabs on members of the group. They arc generally regarded as tire most militant organization on the odds with MEETING OF MINDS Robert Slanfield, left, and Claude Wagner indulge in n short tele-a-lele at Chicou- timi, Que., during a press club luncheon. DEPARTMENT SECRETARY OF Ihe old-line Communist party of Canada and its continuing loy- alty to Moscow. The RCMP source said Maoists arc dedicated lo ove-- throwing the present system of government by force and that they arc using the election as a platform to preach their par- ticular brand of politics. RCMP Commissioner W. L. lliggilt says he is not aware how many, if any, Maoists are candidates for the Oct. 30 elec- tion. He said the HCMP is not watching any candidate "and we would take steps to make sure" there is no interference with any candidate. We would not be keeping an eye on anyone because he was a candidate." WATCH CRIMINALS But he said that individuals with criminal records or a his torv of subversive aclivit; would be watched by police in the normal line of duty. The 52 said to be Maoists an among 123 candidates rxinninf under no political banner. A 123 are listed in the official lis of candidates put out by tin chief electoral office as having "no affiliation." Jean-Marc Hamel, the chief electoral officer, says there is no official way of knowing which candidates belong to the Marxist-Leninist group since members liad chosen to run without any label. He said there are some Maoists in the campaign who are "more famous than others" because of their public activi- ties. But there was no way of differentiating them from oth- ers who had also decided to run without official affiliation. An official RCMP spokesman fould neither confirm nor deny the existence of the Maoist desk, saying that the force has a "mandate to investigate sub- versive activity" but that "we don't publicly designate any group to be subversive." Commissioner Higgitt says the matter of the desk is "one of those tilings I'd rather not discuss." "There are lots of desks at national he said. "But I would have to say no comment on the matter of a particular desk to deal with Maoists." The RCMT Informant says the Maoists are concentrating on Ontario and Quebec. In a four-page newspaper called People's Canada Daily News, the candidates in Quebec say they have no desire to have members elected to the Com- mons. TORONTO (CP) LJbcraU he.'c are somewhat perturbed about posters supporting Prime Minister Trudeau that were designed by a former Indian army captain. Anant Singh paid for posters urging Asians in Can- ada to vote Liberal Oct. 30 because they "have reason to be grateful" for what Mr. Tradcau has done for them. But the message winds up with the slogan in red letter- ing: "A stud in hand is worth two under the bed.11 Mr. Singh said he received a call yesterday from Jo- seph president of the Ontario Literal Assocint'on, wlw told him the last line would likely be misunder- stood. Mr. Mr. Singh expained that In India "a cufflink is called a stud" and the slogan is similar to the expression "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Mr. Singh, who came here two years ago and is not eli- gible to cast a ballot, said he spent more than on the printing and design of the poster which were "fully sell- inspired'."
