2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, October 21, 1971-------------------------------------- Government won't tell date of nuclear blast WASHINGTON (AD 'nil- United States government said Wednesday it will not detonate a five-meKalon nuclear warhead on Amchiika Island lief ore Oct. 27, bul declined to disclose tho exact dak1. Edmund Clark, a justice de- partment lawyer making the disclosure in papers filed before the II S. Court of Appeals, said "the president still hasn't de- cided" whether to halt the un- derground test. However, he said, the longer the test is delayed the shorter the interval will be between tho order to go ahead and the ac- tual detonation. The time interval could be as RCMP launches campaign against tipsy drivers EDMONTON (CP> The JICMP has asked the Alberta Liquor Control Board to send letters to bars and other liquor outlets urging managers to help keep impaired patrons away from cars. Inspector W. J. Hunter, chief traffic officer for the province, said the RCMP will visit the U.S. won't let farm income dip WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration ha? served notice that it does not intend to let farm income creep lower next year because of un- controlled feed-grain produc- tion. If necessary. Agriculture Sec- retary Clifford M. Hardin told a rows conference here, the government will spend up to billion in feed program pay- ments to help reduce United. States production of corn, sor- ghum and barley. The target is for 38 million acres to be taken from feed- grain production next year at a cost of S2.8 billion in total pay- ments. If (hat is not enough, farmers will be given the oppor- tunity to divert even more land from production, which could add million to the bill. That compared with 18.8 mil- lion acres taken from feed pro- duction this year under the "set-aside" rule requiring par- ticipating fanners to take one- fifth of their feed land from pro- duction. This year's feed program, when all the bills are in, is ex- pected to cost the government S2 billion. outlets to explain in person the reasons for the new program. Inspector Hunter said in an interview that although impair- ed driving convictions are up 50 per cent this year com- pared with 1970 liquor was still a factor in 50 per cent of the 103 fatal accidents investigated by the RCMP to the end of A'ugust, The RCMP also planned to set up check points at strategic locations to screen out impair- ed drivers. The objective was lo deter drinkers from driving and to detect and apprehend the greatest possible number of impaired drivers. "We don't want more pros- Inspector Hunter said "we just want fewer colli- sions, less death, destruction and misery." "This can only be accom- plished if people are made aware of the serious conse- quences of drinking and driv. ing and accept their respon- sibility accordingly." Hull policemen stage walkout HULL, Que. (CP) Scat- tered vandalism and a rash of break-ins were reported today after 72 of the city's 77 police- men staged a midnight walkout, but traffic moved smoothly. City policemen, out for a 24- hour study session, have been replaced by 25 provincial police. The union is asking for an increase to a minimum annual salary for a firstclass constable, in a one-year con- tract retroactive to May I. The city has offered a two-year con- tract rising to the first year and to the second. A first-class constable in Hull now earns a year. short as three days because n[ the worsening weather condi- tions in the Aleutian Islands, ho said. Clark said he expected the de- cision by President Nixon would be made public. Clark's disclosure came at a hearing in which the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility and seven other conservation organ- izations sought a temporary re- straining order prohibiting the test. U.S. district court Judge George L. Hart late last week denied a temporary injunction. A hearing is scheduled in the U.S. District Court on Friday on whether to delay the test until the U.S. Atomic Energy Com- mission releases secret docu- ments alleged to warn of possi- ble environmental dangers that could be created by the blast. Canada and Japan have both asked that the U.S. abandon the test. Southam Press Ltd. buys paper WINDSOR, Pub- lisher Mark Farrell of The Star announced today the daily news- paper has been sold to Southam Press Ltd. for an undisclosed amount. Mr. Farrell issued a state- ment saying the sale was ap- proved Wednesday by directors of Southam at a board meeting in Edmonton. Purchase of The Star was the second of an Ontario daily newspaper by Southam Press this year. The company ac- quired the Brantford Expositor Sept. 13. The two purchases bring Southam Press ownership of dailies in Canada to 12. In addition, the Southam firm holds a half interest in Pacific Press Ltd., which controls the Vancouver Province and the Vancouver Sun. DRUG HELPS EDMONTON (CP) Dia- mox, a drug which counteracts acids, has proved "fairly effec- tive" at relieving the hangover- like symptoms of rapid ascent to altitudes where the air is thin and cold, it was reported by a Canadian Airborne Regiment lieutenant who led 10 men on a month-long safari to the windy plateau of Mount Logan in the Yukon Territory, Canada's lofti- est peak.

Alaska natives land claim legislation given approval WASHINGTON (AP) Legis- lation to settle the aboriginal land claim of Alaska natives has cleared its highest hurdle in Congress after being around over 20 years. The House of Representatives passed Wednesday 334 to 63, a bill to give Eskimos, Aleuts and Indians million and 40 million acres. This would settle natives' claims to title through historic use and occupancy to most of Alaska's 325 million acres, which the United States bought from Russia in 1867 for mil- lion.

Olga Sauaryn and Gretel Raab were named to the advi- sory board on objectionable publications and the retirement of Ruth Hilborn as a board member was Announced. The cabinet also authorized a special warrant to add mil- lion to the province's forest-fire fighting budget for 1971-72 and a special warrant of for the purchase and demoli- tion of a warehouse in down- town Edmonton to make way for a remand centre and pro- vincial courts building. A11 o r n e y-General Merv Leitch said the demolition, ori- ginally due to start next spring, will start near the end of No- vember as a measure to com- The bill was sent to the Se- nate, which passed a claims bill last year and soon will consider another, more liberal measure that has the Senate in- terior committee's approval. The bill passed by the House calls for cash payments total- ling million in 10 years, million in mineral royalties and 40 million acres. Natives would be permitted under the House bill to pick 18 million acres immediately for expansion of about 200 villages. The remaining 22 million acres would become available after Alaska completes selection of 103 million acres of land granted under its statehood law. Native commissions would handle the award money. Poten- tial projects and uses would in- clude hospital and school con- struction, water and sewer facil- ities, and a variety of loans and grants. No hunting NATAL (HNS) In the in- terests of safety to men work- ing on various Kaiser Re- sources projects, some restric- tions on hunting have been an- nounced. No hunting will be allowed above the hydraulic mine or in the areas where pit mining is being earned out. This means that the Kaiser Resources closed area, which has been listed in the B.C. Game regula- bat whiter unemployment. tions, is closed to hunters. KOSYGIN'S HELP ASKID Betsy Priddle, 28, a teacher In suburban Richmond, with photographs of her fiance, Leonid Korzlrskey, whom ihe met while touring the Soviet Union. Miss Priddle has prepared a letter asking Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin lo help her fiance emigralo from Ukraine to Canada which will ba dolivornd to him In Vancouver thli wokind. Moscow-Havana relations have never been so good HAVANA (Reuter) The second visit to Cuba by Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin later this month will take place at a time when relationships be- tween the two countries haw apparently never been so good, observers in Havana said today. The support by Havana of most aspects of Soviet Union foreign policy outweighs impa- tience which Moscow might feel towards the slow progress of the Cuban economy, 'vhich still de- pends on Soviet aid. Queen to visit ruins KUSADASI, Turkey (Renter) The Queen arrived in this tiny Aegean resort village aboard her royal yacht Britan- nia today, continuing her one- week visit to Turkey. The Queen, accompanied by Prince Philip and Princess Anne, were to travel by car later today to the nearby ruins of Ephesus. British archeologists began excavations in the area almost 100 years ago, revealing ruins dating back 33 centuries. Princess Anne, 21, Wednesday night lost her voice and was forced to retire from an official reception for NATO generals aboard the Britannia, anchored off Izmir. Aides said the princess had contracted a throat infection during her visit to Iran last week for the anniversary cele- brations of the Persian Empire. The Queen and her party re- ceived a warm welcome from the people in Izmir when she arrived Wednesday from An- kara. During a 25-mile trip from tha airport to Izmir, her car was frequently hemmed in by ex- cited villagers who appeared from fields and farmhouses to applaud and cheer. Diplomatic sources com- mented that the visit will give Premier Fidel Castro an oppor- tunity to exchange views with the Soviet leader on Ihe planned visit by President Nixon of United States to China and Rus- sia. The arrival of Kosygin has not yet been announced in Ha- vana but did not come as a surprise to observers here. It seemed logical for geographical and practical reasons that Kosy- gin might stop in Cuba on his way home from Canada sines he had not visited the Caribbean island in four years. The visit was announced by Moscow radio earlier in the day. Kosygin had talks in June. 1967, with Castro on his way back from the Glassboro, N.J., meeting with former president Lyndon Johnson. Cuba depends heavily on Rus- sian aid. Economic help is gen- erally estimated at million a day and thousands of Soviet technicians are working in Cuba. Kosygin attacker beaten TORONTO (CP) Paul Fromm, Ontario Social Credit party president, said Wednes- day night Geza Matrai, charged with common assault in Mon- day's attack on Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin in Ottawa, has been beaten by prisoners who are in Ottawa's Oarleton County jail on drug charges. Mr. Fromm said he has asked Justice Minister John Turner to protect Matrai, the Social Credit candidate in Toronto High Park riding in today's Ontario elec- tion, from further beatings. He also has asked national Socred leader Real Caouette to raise the matter in the Commons, he said.
