Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LtTHBKIDGI HIRALD Widntsday, Oclobtr It, Britain Plans Increase In Military Aid To NATO LONDON (AP) The Con- servative government an- nounced plans today to increase Britain's military contribution to the North Atlantic Treaty Or- ganization and a small force in Southeast Asia. But it said it plans to reduce over-all defence spending.

The main new contribution will be the aircraft carrier Ark Royal, which will be assigned to the Supreme Allied Com- mander, Europe, the statement said.

Government May Shut Down Toronto College Experiment OTTAWA (CP) Rochdale College, symbol to many vot- ing-age Torontonians of what is wrong with the younger genera- tion, appears likely to be writ- ten off by the federal govern- ment as an experiment that went bad. Robert Andras, minister re- sponsible for housing, left little doubt Tuesday that the high-rise Toronto residence, intended t o combine living accommodation with unstructured education, is to for a severe shake-up and perhaps closing. Soviet Students Questioned On Plane Hijacking ANKARA (AP) Turkish au- thorities questioned two Soviet students seeking asylum today after the second successful hi- jacking of a Soviet plane in two weeks. Nikolai Ginlov, 20, and Vitaly Pozdeyir, 25, "put a bag over he pilot's head, trussed him up and landed the plane at Sinop themselves" Tuesday, the Turk- No In Army Base dosing OTTAWA (CP) The need to use Rivers armed forces base in Manitoba to send troops .to Quebec in the last 10 days has not persuaded the government to change its decision to close the base next year, Defence Minister Donald Macdonald told the Commons Tuesday. Mr. Macdonald said in an ad- journment debate the control tower at the base was re-opened to make possible the movement of Camp Shilo troops to Quebec: In future, however, troop movements from Shilo will be through Brandon which is more accessible, he said. The minister was replying to Creig C. Stewart He said the reactivation of the base in ths current, crisis indicated the government had made a mistake when it decided it should be closed. Mr. Stewart maintained Riv- ers was used because its con- crete .runways enable it to han- dle heavier aircraft than the Ca- nadian Forces Portage Air Base. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! ish news agency Anatolia re- ported. i. The Turkish government sent state security police and an in- terpreter to Sinop, on Turkey's Black Sea'coast, to investigate. The Turkish state radio said Ginlov and Pozdeyir told secu- rity police they wanted to go to the United States. The plane, a small twin-en- gine craft of the government- owned Soviet airline Aeroflot, was on a domestic flight from Kerch to Krasnodar, north of the Black Sea, when Gmtov and Pozdeyir took it over. Due other passenger was aboard. The first hijacking of a Soviet plane to Turkey was carried out Oct. 15 by Lithuanians, Pranas Stasio Brazinskas and his son Algedas. They diverted an Aeroflot airliner to Trabzon, 200 miles east of Sinop, after killing a stewardess and wound- ing three crew members. The father and son also have asked for political asylum, while the Soviet government has demanded their return to face criminal action. The Turkish minister of justice is studying the case. The Soviet ambassador to Turkey hinted Tuesday that the Russians' might use a Turkish colonel now being held in the Soviet Union in bargaining for the two Lithuanians: The colo- nel, Cevat'Deneli, was aboard a small American military plane that the U.S. government says lost its way and landed in Soviet Armenia last week while taking two American generals on an inspection flight in Turkey. Long-Haired 'Hippie-Types' Turned Doivn EDMONTON (CP) Two long haired "hippie types" were refused service in the city police cafeteria here. Both men were city police undercover agents who helped in the arrest of 47 suspected drug traffickers last week. Mr. Andras' said outside the Commons he is not prepared to accept the rumors about what is going on inside the college with- out closer examination of the facts. While the government has not yet decided'on the fate of the college, he said, the outlook is heavily-weighted towards lowering the boom on the cur- rent administration. Within the next two weeks, he said, tlie government would an- nounce a decision on options it would take-ranging from break- ing up the college's current power structure to foreclosing on its mortgage. .The minister said the col- lege's finances are a mess, It was in mortgage payments on the first mortgage held by the government. It was also be- hind on five other mortgages. In the Commons earlier, To- ronto MP Perry Ryan saying he'was repeat- ing a statement by Toronto Al- derman Anfnony O'Donohue, de- scribed Rochdale as a "vertical flophouse" and a "launching pad for revolutionaries." He said residents have caused damage to the building. IN ARREARS In Toronto, Rochdale council president Peter Turner said the building is in arrears only on its CMHC mortgage and a loan from a fraternity. He said part of the financial problem arose because Roch- dale does not receive a 10-per- cent provincial grant normally given to university residences that are funded through the CMHC. He said If the government fo- recloses on its mortgages there would be nothing to replace Rochdale. "All they would do would be ultimately to put the problem back on the he said, add- ing that urban areas through- out the country are having problems with young people in downtown areas.
