Fol- lowing a series of dismissals of government ministers, the whole facade of party unily which has been Ihe strongest feature of ilie Liberals has cracked. The climax to the inner- party fending came wilh Ihe dismissal by Prime Minister William McMahon of John Gorlon, former prime minis- ter and lately defence minis- ter. McMahon and Gorlon have been enemies, even Ihough in Ihe same government and p.'ivlv. for years. When Gorton was prime minister, his parly deputy was McMahon. The positions were reversed in March when McMahon be- came the leader. Wilh Ihe two mon incompat- ible in the same governmenl, it was widely expected that McMahcn would take the first oppiii'Uinity to oust Gorton. The opportunity came with the publication of a book by a political journalist Alan Heid called The Gorton Experi- ment, a highly prejudiced anli-Gorton record of the for- mer Prime Minister's rule. HIT BACK Gorlon hit back a se- ries of newspaper arlicles ac- cusing former Cabinet col- leagues ci leaking secret gov- ernment information and ac- cusing Reid of being part of a plot engineered by newspaper magnate Sir Frank Packer, a close friend of McMahon. to "gel Gorton." Tom Williams spirited as ever 86 and still flying WOODSTOCK, Ont. (CP) Tom Williams had Ins pilot's lic- ence renewed last May, but he's decided to cut down a little bit on his flying time anyhow. At age 86, it's understandable that Mr. might want to slow up somewhat. In fact, he almost sold his 1937 Fleet 21M biplane recently. He put the plane up for auc- tion, but then decided against parting with it when Ihe highest bid was only Believed to be Canada's oldest i active pilot, Mr. Williams has achieved fame only recently. "Hell, I was only discovered Yemen's power man out of job BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Last week Maj.-Gen Hassan Amri was Ihe most powerful man in Yemen. Today he is out of a job, holed up in a hotel in the mountains alwve Beirut and refusing to talk about it. Afliri was forced to resign as premier, army com- mander-in-chief and member of the governing Republican Council Aug. 31 after he alleg- edly shot and killed a photog- rapher in San'a.

Beirut newspapers gave this Gigantic turtles are back RANTAU ABAXG, Malaysia (AP) The gigantic leathery turtles are hack, flippcring past tourists to deliver Iheir eggs to merchants who threaten them ivith extinction. Mother turtles love this 12- mile beach. Though brochures urge tourists to ride Ihe turlles, and villagers scoop up the eggs almost More they hit the sand, the turtles keep coming hack. Nightly from May to Septem- ber, up lo 30 heave onto the beach like eight-foot ladies handbags. They spend two hours ashore, laying 100 to 200 eggs each. Zoologisls say Ihe lealher- backed sea miles from the Philippines. They're part of a Soulli China Sea "population" and related to lealhcry turtles elsewhere. The government issues a sea- son's lease to the highest bidder for egg rights here. It cost this year. The winner hires "turtle men" and may gross in a good year. He must sell a portion of the eggs to the stale-run hatchery nearby to insure the species continues lo some extent. The rubbery-shelled eggs look something like dented I able ten- nis balls. They arc a prized deli- cacy along Malaysia's east coast. It's hard for a visitor lo know why. The taste, one Is told, Is acquired. version of the shooting: Amri mistakenly dialed the photog- rapher's telephone number and thought he was talking to the commander of the army headquarters guard The man he was connected to was Mohsen Ilarazi, a pho- tographer in liis early oOs. When Amri idcnlified himself, Harazi, who was talking to another man, when the lines were crossed, thought it was a joke. The two men exchanged in- sults and Amri sent soldiers to seize Ilarazi. who was beaten while pleading that it was a mistake and he did not know it was Amri he was talking to. REFUSED TO SHOOT Amri ordered Ihe soldiers to shoot Harazi but they refused, the newspapers said. Amri then grabbed a rifle from a soldier and shot [lie photogra- pher in the head, killing him. Harazi's family asked the president of Ihe Republican Council Abedcl Rahman el lr- yani. Amri's long-time politi- cal opponent, to arrest Amri. Iryani demanded Amri be hanged in public but olher government and Irihal leaders intervened in Iris behalf and arranged to have him flown out of Ihe country. Amri, who was appointed premier Aug. 21 for the fourlli time since the country came independent nine years ago, arrived in Beirut Thurs- day with his 12-year-old son. He denied reports he had re- signed, saying only he was in Lebanon for "rcsl and medi- cal treatment."

Mr. Williams won a Military Cross for his 13 kills as a fighter pilot in the First World War. He was a test pilot during the Second World War and also has instructed pilots at the Kitchener-Waterloo airport. A big thrill came in 1969 when he flew a military jet in To- ronto.

But a litlle danger never has bothered Mr. Williams, who still speaks in a [icry, spirited man- ner.

Allhough the next federal election is not due until Oclo- bcr of next year, McMahon himself had been putting out hints al Ihe possibility of nn early poll.
