Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ex-Commie party leader dies at 77 MOSCOW (AP) Nikila S. Khrushchev, former Soviet Premier and Communist party chief, died today ot a heart attack, unofficial Soviet sources reported. He was 77 and had a history of heart trouble. The report from usually reliable sources could not be officially confirmed, and there was no immediate announcement by the Soviet news agency Tass. Khrushchev, who was ouskd by the current. Krem- lin leaders in October, 1964, has been living in retire- ment in a country house outside Moscow. He had suffered two previous heart attacks and had been in ill health during the last year. Khrushchev last appeared in public at election time last June. Removed in 1964 He ruled the Soviet Union almost single-handedly from he added the premiership to the party secretaryship he bad held since 1953, until the present leadership kicked him out in 19M. The official reason for his retirement was given in a government statement as faib'ng health, but he was almost simultaneously criticized without being named for "harebrained scheming" and violation of the principle of collective rule. For the foreigner, Khrushchev's ebullient peasant earthiness made him a warm figure after the grey- ness of the Stalin years. But he was not always popular in his own country. He was known throughout the vorld for flamboyant behavior of a kind rarely seen in a world leader. His shoe-hanging at the United Nations in 1960, his frequent visits to the fields to tell farmers how to raise corn, pigs and chickens, and his homey speeches, always reported in lie Communist party newspaper Pravda as having been interrupted by laughter, were given world-wide publicity But while the former Soviet leader may have been s sympathetic character to foreigners, to many of his own people he was (lie man who devalued the ruble and curtailed the size of private kitchen gardens both actions being widely regarded in Russia as plunder of the people. Lived in country Since his ouster Khrushchev had been living in a country house dacha in the village of Petrovo-Dalneye, just outside Moscow. He also kept an apartment in a pre-war block of apartments built specially for the Communist party central committee. He will go down in liistory as the man who de- bunked his dead predecessor, Joseph Stalin. He also paved the way for peaceful co-existence between Easl and West. His rise to power was a classic Soviet success story and his fall as big a surprise to the Russian in the street as it was to Ihe rest of the world. In the 11 years he ruled Russia, first as Com- munist party first secretary, and later as premier as well, the tubby Khrushchev held a delicate balance be- tween his Kremlin rivals. The Soviet sources said Khrushchev died at aitound mid-day in Ihe Kremlin hospital, where he had been for three or four days. His wife, Nina Petrovna Khrushchev, and daughter, Hada. were with him when he died, they added. They quoted doctors as saying he died of a massive heart failure. Cast into oblivion At the height of his power lie went virtually un- challenged, but on Oct. 14, 1S64, the man who held sway over million Soviet citizens was removed by Ilic party lie headed, wlion Iu5 colleagues combined tn cast him into political obhvion. lie was born in Ihe little village o{ Kalinovka, near Kursk, April 17, 1B94, the son of a peasant. Jovial .outspoken and never at a loss for a humorous or sarcastic comment, he could embarrass even his topmost aides by mocking them in public. When roused to anger his lip would curl in bitter rage as he inveighed against the evils of "American Imper- ialism" or "Chinese dogmatism."

Anotlter was the Quebec separatist issue, of which the aulhors say: "There is as yet no direct evidence that Commu- nist powers or agenls have Iwon meddling in the Que- bec separatist movement or have aggravated it, If the movement makes furl her advances, it will of course provide an incentive for inlcrvendion and meddling, as lias occurred in many olhcr parts of the world."

LXIV No. 230 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1971 FIVE SECTIONS 84 PAGES Would have to last 10 years Wage, price controls curbs must-Trudeau N1KITA KHRUSHCHEV Heart victim 8 Fishermen killed in ship blast ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) The captain of the Portuguese hospital ship Gil Eojtnes con- firmed today that eight Portu- guese fishermen were killed and several injured in an explosion aboard the trawler Sao Jacinto on the Grand Banks off New- foundland. In a radio telephone inter- view, tha captain reported that the injured were in good condi- tion. The explosion, believed to have been in the engine room, oc- curred Friday afternoon. The hospital ship left port here shortly after the explosion. The 841-ton Sao Jacinto car- ried 83 crew members, most ol them fishermen. A report that the dead in- cluded the ship's second and third engineers could not be confirmed. The Sao Jacinto is a wooden- hulled fishing vessel. 161 feet in length, and is owned and oper- ated by Empresa de Pesca de Aveiro Ltd. of Aveiro, Portugal. She is reported to be floating bust listing. The vessel is one of more than 40 Portuguese vessels fish- ing off Newfoundland. PORT HOPE, Ont. (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau said Friday night compulsory wage and price controls are not the way to deal with inflation, which he admitted is ebbing hack into the Canadian econ- omy. The prime minister, here dur- ing a two-day tour of eastern Ontario communities, told people at a meeting that to be effective, wage and price con- trols would have to last at least 10 years. This, he said, would put Can- ada "back m a wartime situa- tion." The failure of Canadians to curb their wage and price de- mands as requested by his gov- ernment last year amounted at a virtual "breakdown in democ- racy." Mr. Trudeau added, however, that the government may have to try the same tary wage and price restraints to deal with inflation. People will have to "117 to un- derstand that the Canadian peo- ple collectively can't take more out of the community than they put in." As well, the U.S. gov- ernment's new 10-per-cent sup- plementary duty on imports threatens lo take away more Canadian said Mr. Tru- deau. The prime minister outlined his views on the economy in re- sponse to an opinion poll which showed 80 per cent of constitu- ents in the Northumberland- Durham riding favor wage and price controls. ASKED PERSONS Liberal MP Russell Honey had mailed a questionnaire to of his constituents dealing with economic issues and corre- lated the results on wage and price controls. "We'll put that m our pipe and smote Mr. Trudeau said of the results. But the prime minister warned that compulsory con- trols would lead to black marke- teering, rationing and controls on the flow of money in and out of the country. The government would have to set up a "huge bureaucratic apparatus" to decide where the nation's resources would go and controls would mean an end to free collective bargaining be- tween employers and employ- ees. Mr. Trudeau was not Im- pressed by President Nixon's three-month wage and price freeze in the U.S., announced Aug. 15 along with the import lew. Hurricane Edith still on rampage Kidnapped ambassador made knight LONDON (Reuters) British Ambassador Geoffrey Jackson, newly-freed after 246 days as captive of Uruguay's Tupama- ros guerrillas, arrived home today to L warm, top-level wel- come and a knighthood. "This is your great said Foreign Secretary Sir Aleo Douglas-Home as he met Jack- son, 56, at the airport. Just as Jackson's piano touched down, an announcement from the foreign office said he had been created a Knigt Com- mander o[ the Order ol St. Mi- chael and St. George This means that in future he will be known as Sir Geoffrey. An RAF jet had brought Jack- son from Madrid where he ar- rived earlier from Montevideo. His wife, Evelyn, and son, An- thony, 27, had flown to Madrid to meet him. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hurricane Edith rampaged across the desolate stretches ol! Ihe Yucatan Peninsula today while Fern, her younger sister, drenched southern Texas with the gale-whipped rains of a dying hurricane. And thousands of miles to tho cast, Tropical Storm Ginger twisted into near hurricane strength 350 miles south of Ber- muda.

Aclress dies BEVERLR HILLS, Calif. (AP) Pier Angeli, a delicate Italian beauty whose marriage woes sometimes overshadowed a promising acting career, was found dead Friday. She was 39. Miss Angcli's body was found in her apartment by a drama coach who lived with her. Hel- ena Sorrell told police Miss AJI- geli had been suffering from a slom'ach disorder and was being treated by a physician. An autopsy was scheduled today to determine the cause of death. Many of Belize's resi- dents had boarded their shops and fled for high ground as the storm moved menacingly dose, but Edith only sideswiped the city with heavy rains and gale- force winds. A 1961 hurricane nearly destroyed Belize and killed 300 persons. Edith wrecked 30 homes and damaged weather stations in Hondiu-as before it moved into the Gulf of Honduras Friday and headed toward British Hon- duras.

From REUTED-AP BELFAST (CP) Pnma Minister Brian Faulkner in a hard-hitting speech Friday night rejected suggestions for a dras- tic weakening and overhaul of Northern Ireland's governmen- tal structure. I'lf 7IT lll'l'll il' Yllll imul someone in world bcfom He did not name Harold Wil- son, but his remarks were videly interpreted to be in an- swer to a call made by the Brit- ish opposition leader for greater British responsibility and influ- ence in Northern Ireland's ad- ministration. Faulkner condemned propos- als which would turn the present form of government in Ulster into a "sham or shadow." He added: "I do not believe that when people have enjoyed a degree of self-govern- ment for 50 years that one could turn back the clock and treat the area as if it were a crown colony." Among Wilson's ideas was the appointment of a parliamentary commission, based in London, to examine Northern Ireland laws and present recommenda- tions on future legislation to tile two governments. COMPOSED EQUALLY Wilson wanted the commis- sion lo composed equally of British and Northern Irish par- liamentarians, making sure that the Ulster learn included repre- sentatives of Roman Catholic and other opposition groups. Find body of missing 'Pass man COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) The body of John Howarth, missing from his Coleman home since Aug. 15, has been found on a shale slide west and south of the "window" on Window Mountain northwest of here. A three-man search party, in- cluding Vincc Janostak, Bill Borrows and Richard Mar- quardt, all of Coleman, found the remains on the morning of Sept. 10. Appearances at the scene in- dicate Mr. Howarth had fallen down an almost perpendicular cliff more than 100 feet high. It is believed he died instant- ly from the numerous injuries he suffered in the long rocky fall. A 13-man party including for- est superintendent Alf Long- worth, Coroner F. S. Radford, Bill Borrows, Steve Saloff, Tim Blake, Ernie Fanlin, T i m Chambers, Tyce Vastenhout, Richard Marquardt and four members of the Blairmore de- tachment of the RCMP carried the body in a stretcher in relay teams over rough terrain. Coroner Radford has stated no inquest will be held. Mr. Howart, 60, had been missing from bis home since Aug. 15. When he did not return Aug. 17, a search was organized. It had been learned he had gone on a picture-taking trip in the Window Mountain area. His car was found on the Alli- son Creek road where he left it before taking a path leading to Window Mountain. He had been employed as a time-keeper for Coleman Colli- eries mine where he had work- ed for many years. Latest Soviet moon probe attempt ends in failure MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union's latest moon probe crashed into lunar mountains in the Sea of Fertility today and radij contact wilh the station was cut off, Tass said. The Soviet news agency said Luna 10, Ihe new unmanned probe launched last Sept. 2, was brought down to the moon after 54 orbits. This was the first major So- viet space effort since tlirce Russian cosmonauts died on re- turning to earth last June after setting an endurance record for space flight. It was the third consecutive failure in the Soviet space pro- gram. When Luna 18 was sent on its course lo the moon nine days ago, Tass described the mission as being to carry out further scientific research of the moon and near-lunar space. Western analysts had ex- pected the Luna 18 transport slu'p to make a soft landing on the moon nnd either deposit a second remote-controlled moon rover modelled after Lunokhod I, or to repeat an earlier experi- ment of recovering lunar soil samples, this time with an im- proved drill. A near-blackout maintained since the launch of Luna IB led to speculation that it was not going as planned. The Tass an- nouncement this afternoon con- firmed that impression.
