Crashes Plane Into RC Church Deputy Chief Tells Why Order Disobeyed CALGARY (CP) Suits for false arrest and (lander could have been brought against the city had the orders of Mayor Rod Sykes been executed dur- ing a rock festival July 4-5, Deputy Police Chief Gordon Gilkes told a public inquiry Friday. The mayor ordered him to arrest Ken Walker of Toronto, one of the promoters of the Festival Express, after a heat- ed exchange between the two, the deputy chief said. felt I saved the mayor from an embarrassing situa- tion I feel I would have had to arrest two people, then face a suit for false arrest and possible slander." The deputy chief was testify- ing at the second session of the public inquiry which is inves- tigating the possibility of civic mismanagement during the last 10 years. The session is concentrating on political interference in po- lice duties. The first session, in Political Violence Threat To Peace Says PM Heath SAN JUAN, Tex. (Reuter) Friends and neighbors shed light on the strange life and still stranger death of Frank Alexan- der, who crashed a small plane into a Roman Catholic church here Friday in an apparent pro- test against organized religion.

HEAVY CONCENTRATION Undiluted mint oil holds such a concentration of the essence that one drop is sufficient to fla- vor the frosting of an entire cake.. UNITED NATIONS (CP) With an apparent eye on the Quebec kidnappings, British Prime Minister Edward Heath said Friday that political viol- ence is a threat to "the peace of nations, indeed to the very fab- ric of society." "We have seen in the last few years the growth of the cult of political violence, preached .and practised not so much between states as within he told the U.N. General Assembly. I "It is a sombre thought, but it may be that in the 1970s civil war, not war between nations, will be the main danger we will face. Heath listed violence as one of the dangers to the United Na- tions of the future. Diplomatic observers said Heath, when referring to viol- ence, was thinking particularly of kidnappings in Canada, the recent civil war in Nigeria and the situation in Northern Ire- land. 'AIM IS ANARCHY' Heath said that the increasing use of violence has become "not the last resort of the desperate, but the first resort of those whose simple, unconstructive aim is anarchy." "That we must all surely re- sist. Anarchy is not a prescrip- tion for peace, justice and prog- ROTHMANS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS Planning community mot!

Other witnesses told Mr. Jus- ,ice W. G. Morrow the dispute between the men developed after the mayor asked Mr. Walker to allow youths outside McMahon Stadium into the festival for free and Mi1. Walk- er refused. Staff Sergeant Michael Col- lins said the dispute became an abusive shouting match and the men had to be restrained from coming to blows. S. Sgt. Collins quoted the mayor as telling Mr. Walker "you're nothing but eastern scum this city has been good to you you're skinning the people of this city get out and don't come back. Deputy Chief Gilkes said after a short silence Walker replied: "I don't have to take that from you." "The mayor said "Take that man in. Take that man out. I want him arrested that's an order. Take him out." Mr. Walker said he was renting the premises and he ordered the mayor out, and in- dicated he night sue for slan- der, the deputy chief said. The incident was recalled vi- vidly, the deputy chief said, be- cause it "caused me some con- cern." "I had disobeyed a direct order from a person of author- ity." Earlier in the inquiry, wit- nesses said there were few ar- rests among the to people who watched the show even though illegal activities, such as consumption of drugs liquor occurred openly. IMPOSSIBLE Staff Inspector A. R. Roberts of the city police said he and RCMP Inspector Irwin Blehm decided it would be impossible to enforce all laws'at the festi- val. "We decided in a highly vol- atile crowd, strict enforcement might bring on a greater prob- lem than the smoking of one marijuana cigarette. ''We didn't want the. crowd to become riotous and see inno- cent spectators get hurt." "This was the policy of po- lice, not city hall. There was no direction from Mayor Sykes." Aid. Roy Farran, a member of the police commission, testi- fied the only discussion about the rock festival by the com- mission concerned protection of property in the area. PUBLICITY The commission h a d evolved into a political organization and some members used reports from the commission "to keep their names in front of the public." Aid. John Ayer, another member, said he felt appoint- ing politicians to the commis- sion was unwka. Four of the six members were politically active. Relations between the com- mission and police "are not very good" and some commis- sion decisions have lowered police morale. The inquiry resumes next week and is expected to hear another 10 days of testimony.

Tramp Tanker' Caused Pollution OTTAWA (CP) The oil tanker Arrow, which brought a pollution crisis to the coast of Nova Scotia last winter, was an ancient, substandard tramp of a sort which it will be possible to ban from; Canadian waters in future, Transport Minister Don Jamleson told the Commons Friday. Mr. Jamieson's description of the Arrow came as an almost unnecessary illustration of the need for his bill to protect Cana- dian waters from oil pollution. No sooner than had the minister opened debate on second readr ing of the legislation that he was given full assurances of support from both Conserva- tives and New Democrats. Mr. Jamieson said the legisla- tion, introduced in the Commons earlier in the week as a scries of amendments to the Canada Shipping Act, will-enable the government to ban from Canada ships which fail to meet a de- tailed set of standards. It would also the minister said, "make the shipping com- munity much more conscious of what I contend is its fundamen- tal and basic responsibility." PROVIDES HEAVY FINES Provisions for insurance cov- erage and for fines of up to for failure to obey the law would end "any inducement for those who want to exploit the shipments of oil and the like to the maximum degree to use rotten or rusty tubs in which to carry this highly dangerous and highly polluting substance." Mr. Jamieson added that he was particularly pleased with a part of the bill covering loss of income by fishermen as a result of pollution. The fishermen would be able to recover their losses from a maritime pollu- tion fund built up through a levy of 15 cents a ton on oil cargoes. Over-all, Mr. Jamieson said, the new legislation goes much farther than any other country's in order to protect the nation's coast. "I make no apologies for Mr. Jamieson said. "We have seen historically the fact that the law of the sea generally Death For Bombers NEW ORLEANS (AP) Gov. John McKeithen of Louisiana yesterday called for federal leg- islation to provide death penal- ties for bombers. The present federal anti-crime law does not go far enough, McKeithen said at a meeting of the Southeast- ern Airport Managers Associa- tion. 'Ridiculous' Fines Levied On Swan Deaths GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Grant Haiste of Grande Prairie was fined and costs Friday for shooting a rare whistler swan. A Fort St. John, B.C., man was fined last week for shooting a rare trumpeter swan. The chamber of commerce said today in commenting on I he earlier action that a fine is "nothing short of ridicu- lous." Haiste was fined after he told magistrate's court he was hunt- ing ducks near Grande Prairie on Oct. 10. When he realized he had shot a swan he reported the Wiling to the RCMP and fish and wildlife officials. The earlier fine was levied against John Kohtich who pleaded guilty to killing a trumpeter swan in the S'aska- loon Lake migr.'uury bird sane- 'tuary. Fines for killing one swan cnn range from to has been in favor of the ship- ping community. "I believe it is high time that tre reversed the circumstances and attempted at least to cor. rect the balance somewhat in our own account and in our own interest." Police Seize Leaflets VANCOUVER (CP) Police Friday night seized a bundle of 100 leaflets containing the man- ifesto of the Front de Liber- ation du Quebec and question- ed three men before releasing them 20 minutes later. Police said the incident will be investigated and it will be up to the attorney general's depart- ment to decide what will bs done with the leaflets and if further action is to be taken. The leaflets were distributed under auspices of the free Que- bec, free Canada committee and criticized the "dictatorship of the cabinet" imposed by the War Measures Act and the ''colonial relationship" between Quebec and the rest of Canada. A committee spokesman said about copies of the leaf- let had been printed but didn't know how many have been dis- tributed or if any other copies had been seized. A smaller number of leaflets was also seized which publi- cized a meeting this Sunday to protest the War Measures Act. Steelworkers Yote To Strike VANCOUVER About 100 steelworkers at the Alumi- um Co. of Canada Ltd. plant here struck Friday night for wage parity with other steel- workers in the area and a con- tract that expires on the same date as others. Angus Macdonald staff repre- sentative of the United Steel- workers of America at the Alcan .plant, which manufac- tures windows and doors, said the company Friday offered the men an hour, up from under the old con- tract. He said other steelworkers in Vancouver were getting an hour. LIBRARY BUSY COALDALE (HNS) Cir- culation at the Coaldale and District Centennial Library to- talled books to the end of August.
