Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 38-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, October 31, 1973 Agitators among Chilean coup refugees Mexico faces security problem MEXICO CITY (Reuter) The army coup in Chile has dumped a security problem in Mexico's than 200 political refugees, many of them left-wing extremists. Their arrival coincides with an upsurge of urban guerrilla activity, including the killing of an industrial of Latin America's richest the northern city of Monterrey. Mexican security officials are concerned about their presence. "We know there are agita- tors among says an of- ficial close to President Luis Echeverria. "But we have to take the risk. Political asylum is a principle in which Mexico firmly believes." The political refugees, in- cluding Chileans, Argenti- nians, Brazilians, Urugua- yans, Ecuadorians and Co- lombians, dashed into the Mexican Embassy in Santiago during the coup that over- threw Marxist President Sal- vador Allende. FLOWN TO MEXICO On orders from Echeverria, a Mexican plane shuttled be- tween Mexico City and San- tiago to fly out the refugees, including President Allende's widow, two daughters and four grandchildren. Under the principle ot polit- ical asylum, they are free to work in Mexico and stay as long as they like. But Mexican security has them well tabbed. They all went through a lengthy docu- mentation process at the inte- rior ministry before getting their residence papers. In line with normal prac- tice, they have been warned not to engage in politics while in Mexico. The influx of refugees came as Mexico mourned the death of Eugenio Garza Sada, one of the key members of the powerful Monterrey group of businessmen who control Mexican industry.

LONDON (CP) Friction between the United States and some of its European allies over President Nixon's deci- sion to place American forces on a worldwide alert without warning threatens to strain severely the unity of the NATO alliance. But just how much damage has been done will not likely become clear until East-West talks on mutual force reduc- tions in Europe, which open- this week, progress beyond their initial stages. NATO allies placed great emphasis on their united stand prior to the meeting's opening. Nevertheless, the view in in- formed quarters is that the alert, instituted in the midst of the Middle East crisis because of American fears about Soviet intentions, raised tensions in the alliance. Most observers believe internal wrangling in the alliance as well as the U.S.- Soviet split is certain to retard, to some extent, the progress which had been hoped for in the Vienna talks between NATO and the War- saw Pact. ACTION RESENTED The countries of Western Europe, particularly West Germany and Britain, have let it be known that they were more than a little upset by Washington's decision to call the alert without consulting with them in advance. After all, they point out, American forces in Europe were Still the best friends your food budget ever had! Alpha presents two skillet main dishes that are easy on the cook and the pocketbook.

There also seems to be a good deal of concern among Europeans about Nixon's domestic troubles and the potentially-unsettling effects these might have on U.S. foreign policy. One possible answer to Eu- rope's problems would be the formation of a strong integrated nuclear defence force within the European Common Market. But the re- quired unity of purpose still does not exist in the com- munity to make this even a re- mote possibility in the near fu- ture. There does, however, appear to be an increasing anti-American feeling among European governments. This may hasten the beginning of a search for ways to reduce the American military presence in Europe eventually without unduly weakening their defence postures. In the meantime, many Eu- ropeans believe the current dispute will strengthen the American case for reducing its troop strength on the con- tinent. Thus, difficulty of develop- ing a united bargaining front to cover all NATO countries now may prove extraordinari- ly difficult, if not impossible. Adding to all these dif- ficulties is the vexed question of possible oil shortages in the next few months. The Arab countries of the Middle East are major suppliers of West European energy needs and their recent decisions to reduce oil supplies to the West will likely be felt most strong- ly on the Continent. Consequently, Europeans have felt obliged not to take sides in the Arab-Israeli conflict to avoid even more drastic cutbacks in their vital oil supplies. West Germany, for example, asked the U.S. to stop supplying arms to Israel from bases in that country. FRICTION RISES But perhaps the event which brought resentment to a head came with Nixon's news conference last week when he said: "Our European friends haven't been as co-operative as they might have been in A-F2-73 and beautiful ___ ELECTROHOME On the Popular Radio Show a mmm SHOW Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

The British, in particular, argue that they have been try- ing frantically to play a role in the peacemaking process only to find they were not really wanted. What Nixon seems to have meant, they believe, was that the Europeans had some sort of obligation to assist the U.S. in helping Israel win the war and that this had not been fulfilled. "This kind of said one British official, "is one that no European should accept." TO REPLACE MISSILES WASHINGTON (AP) All the Poseidon missiles in the United States nuclear subma- rine fleet will be modified as the result of a series of failures during test firings. Navy Secretary John Warner said Monday Warner, in a letter to Congress, said the changes will require about three years. The Poseidon carries 10 warheads which can be aimed at 10 separate targets. The missile is fired underwater from Polaris sub- marines The 82-year-old multimil- lionaire, whose business inter- ests included a steel mill and a brewery, was shot and killed when left-wing guerrillas intercepted his car in an attempt to kidnap him. CAPTURE SUSPECTS Echeverria flew to Monter- rey to attend the funeral and police mounted one of the big- gest manhunts in Mexican history. They bagged four of the alleged kidnappers who said they were members of a guerrilla organization called the Spartan Marxist League. Monterrey industrialists bit- terly criticzed the govern- ment, accusing it of letting "negative ideologies" flower in Mexico and of negligence in maintaining public order. Just as the indignation over Sada's murder was cooling off, unidentified gunmen kid- napped the son of a promi- nent banker in Mexico City. The body of Gabino Gomez Roch, 25, was found in a ditch off a highway with three bul- let wounds after his family had paid a ransom of more than to the kidnap- pers. A few days later, police dis- covered the body of a 22-year- old dentist who had also been kidnapped. His head was bat- tered with a steel pipe after his family paid a ransom of more than About 16 guerrilla groups have surfaced in Mexico in the last three years, engaged mainly in robbing banks and kidnapping. A former schoolteacher named Lucio Cabanas is the most notorious of the guer- rillas. He operates with a small band in the mountains of the Pacific coast state of Guerrero and ambushed two army convoys last year, kill- ing 30 soldiers. He has eluded many army punitive ex- peditions.
