Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE tETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 9, 1970 Orval Faubus Loses In Upset By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bumpers, who emerged from the political obscurity of a country law practice, has won the Democratic nomination for governor of Arkansas, crushing Uio comeback campaign of for- mer governor Orval E. Faubus. And in Florida, Representa- tive William C. Cramer cap- tured the Republican nomina. tion to the Senate, ending the bitter quest of G. Harrold Car- swell for a seat in the chamber that denied him a place on the U.S. Supreme Court. Carswell, whose defeat was expected, and Faubus, loser in a startling upset, were the big- name political casualties as eight slates held primary elec- tions Tuesday lo pick parly can- didates for the November gen- eral election. "I will never regret having made the said Carswell, who resigned his lifetime tenure as a federal appeals judge for a campaign in which he charged the Senate put him through an inquisition before rejecting his nomination to the Supreme Court. The Arkansas runoff was sur- prising not only for the out- come, but for the towering pro- portions of the Bumpers victory. With virtually all precincts counted, Bumpers had voles to for Faubus, who served six terms as governor. Bumpers, 45, and making his first bid for state office, will Transients Win Armory Battle VANCOUVER (CP) A ragtag army of 200 transients won an apparent victory Tues- day in the battle for the Beatty Street armory after declaring the venerable old structure "liberated" and forcing diver- sion of an army track convoy. Ottawa's articles of sur- render came in a telegram Tuesday afternoon to the peo- ple inside the old stone struc- ture, which was turned into a temporary hostel this summer for transients and hitchhikers. It was supposed to revert to the Canadian Forces at mid- night Tuesday, but the resi- dents decided at meetings Sun- day and Monday to take it over in a bid to force Ottawa to allow the building to continue as a hostel. Mayor Tom Campbell, who had strongly opposed use of the armory as a hostel in the first place, said Ottawa had again let Vancouver down and made a decision without consulling the city. "It looks as though the hos- tel is going to be a permanent thing now and an open invita- tion to tlie unemployed youth of Canada to come lo Van- couver for food, lodging and a mild climate." challenge Republican Gov. Winlhrop Rockefeller in Ihe Nov. 3 election. In other key races; flamboyant Re- publican Gov. Claude R. Kirk fell short of a majority in his re- nomination bid, and was forced into a Sept. 29 runoff against millionaire druggist Jack Eck- erd. Kirk had 48 per cent of the vote, Eckerd 37 per cent, in a three-man field. Attorney-General Earl Fair- cloth and Reubin Askew, a state senator, will meet in a runoff for the Democratic nomination for governor. Democrats nomi- nated Philip H. Hoff, a former governor, to run for the Senate against Republican Sen. Win- ston L. Prouty. With 88 per cent of the vote counted, Hoff had votes, Prouty was unopposed for re- nomination, but he got more votes than anybody else on ei- ther primary ballot, and ap- peal's certain of the favorite's roie in his race against Hoff. WITHSTANDS CHALLENGE Walter Petersen of New Hampshire appeared to have narrowly withstood the re- nomination challenge of con- servative Meldrim Thompson, a lawbook publisher. With the un- official vote count nearing com- pletion, he had votes and a load. Roger Crowley Jr., a former state resources commissioner, won the Demo- cratic nomination for governor. J.

Clean Water Wanted By Frog Lake Indians FROG LAKE (CP) Issues which resulted in Indian par- ents on the Frog Lake Re- serve keeping their children out of school last week are far from settled. Mike Stcinhauer of the Indian Association of Al- berta said Tuesday. The children wer.e allowed to attend school in nearby Heins- burg Tuesday after parents de- cided to end the boycott follow- ing a meeting Friday with rep- resentatives of the Indian af- fairs department. IMPROVEMENTS Residents of the reserve, 160 miles east of Edmonton, are demanding better housing, water and sewer services and improved social development programs. Parents complained there were not enough wells on the reserve and they were often forced to use "polluted" slough water. INSULTED As a result, the parents said, children could not bathe fre- quently and were kept out of school'so they would not be in- sulted. Mr. Steinhauer said reserve rseidenls have become impa- tient with the Indian affairs de- partment and have passed res- olutions demanding replace- ment of many of the depart- ment's white employees with Indians. He said action was promised early this spring but was con- tinuously postponed. At the meeting Friday, par- ents were told 13 wells were drilled on the reserve, the max- imum allowed by this ysar's budget, but there had been de- lays in connecting electric pumps to the wells. Mr. Steinhauer said if the delays continue "some other type o! demonstration" will be He said the Indian affairs de- partment is short of funds be- cause 50 per cent of its budget goes into salaries and 25 per cent into research. Proposed projects .were often researched to death.

(CP) Yukon voters elected a seven- member territorial c oil n c i 1 Tuesday, picking four new faces and sending two members of the iast council down to over- whelming defeat. Defeated wore Jean Gordon, who lost her deposit in the Mayo district, and J. 0. Liv- esey, Council Speaker, who was soundly beaten by Liberal Hilda Watson, a teacher, in Car- macks-Kluane. Re-elected were Ken Me- Kinnon, Norman Chamberlist and Don Taylor. The newcom- ers are Mrs. Watson, Liberal Clive Tanner, Mike Stutter and Ronald A. Rivett, the bookkeep- er who thumped Mrs. Gordon. The councillors will name two of their number to the territo- ry's executive committee, a move Yukoners hope will lead to rule from Whitehorse instead of Ottawa. Mr. McKinnon and Mr. Chamberlist are the favor- ites. Term of office for the new council in four years, compared with three for previous councils. No date has been set for the next session but it usually opens here in the second week of Nov- ember. At least '63 per cent of the eligible voters turned out in cold weather and snow at 57 polls scattered through square miles. This compared with 65 per cent of voters in 1967. Four remote polls did not re- port Tuesday night but the bal- lots could not change standings. Official count will be Sept. 15. For the first time, 19- and 20- year-olds had the vote in elect- ing the Yukon's equivalent of a legislature.

Johns, kiEed by a shotgun blast feed through the back door window of his home Monday night, may have been murdered by mistake, police said Tuesday. "It is quite possible that the culprit victimized the wrong person in the wrong said Polics Chief Peter Meehan of New Westminster. Rod Keary, deputy chief, said police had been "unable to find any motive for the mur- der. "We have no leads what- he added. Meanwhile, they were at- tempting to trace the owner of a 12-gauge shotgun, found by a tracker dog in the doorway of a garage several blocks from the Johns' home. sioncr James Smith can dis- solve it at any time. There were 21 candidates. Five ran as Liberals, breaking the tradition of all candidates running as independents, de- spile rejection by their party (and the Conservatives) of the idea of using party labels. Two councillors did not seek re-election: John Dumas in Whi- tehorse West and George Shaw in Dawsoh: Two councillors will be named later this year to the executive committee, joining Mr. Smith and his assistants, R. A. Hodg- kinson and G. K. Fleming. These three men are appointed by Ottawa! The two will get full-time jobs in the range and are ex- pected to oversee administra- tion of education and health and welfare. Yukoners are already referring to the too as cabinet ministers. Ottawa originally proposed to put one councillor on the com- mittee but bowed to pressure and made it two. It's accepted here that the federal govern- ment will now be pressed to in- crease that number. LAWS CHANGED The state of Kentucky has eased regulations on child labor, in one instance allowing chil- dren under 14 to work in pro- grams approved by their schools.

Viet Cong Step Up Attacks _'North Viet- namese and Viet Cong forces iiave stepped up their attacks in the northern sector of South Vietnam, and the South Viet- namese commander for the area said today that up to 15 North Vietnamese regiments are waiting for a chance to ad- vance into the populous coastal lowlands.

Nation Dies In Countdown Canada TORONTO (CP) In a finan- cial documentary on CBC televi- sion Tuesday night, Canada meekly handed itself over to the United Slates. Projected as a 1978 event, peaceful merger was pictured as the result of overwhelming American domination of Can- ada. According to the dramati- zation, Canadians had elected a prime minister on a platform of "recognition and acceptance of reality" and then had voted in a national referendum to join the U.S. Stanley Burke, former CBC news announcer, presided as head of a news team reporting Canada's demise as an inde- pendent nation. At the end of the hour-long film, shown in prime time, the Canadian flag was lowered on Parliament Hill to be replaced by the Stars and Stripes. The film, Countdown Canada, was made on a slim budget by York University for educational television. It was written by Robert Fothergill, director of the Toronto university's televi- sion centre. There are no plans to show the film in the United States. Ho'wever some viewers in American border cities may have seen it. Airliner Cracks Open On Landing LOUISILLE, Ky. (AP) A Delta Airlines DC-9 with 94 per- sons aboard cracked open on landing at Standiford Field Tuesday night, but the most se- rious injury reported was a badly cut thumb. After the 89 passengers and five crew members were evacu- ated, the plane, en route from Chicago to Atlanta, was coated with foam by firemen. There was no fire or explosion. Passengers said the craft's tires blew out on landing, then the plane bounced into the air and cracked just behind the wing when .it hit the runway again. However, a Delta spokesman said: "When it landed it simply cracked open." The spokesman said 15 pas- sengers were taken to hospital for treatment of minor-injuries.
