Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta I THt liTHBRlDOE HERALD r 13, 1 JVcw chemical a sent may aid firemen. ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) A new i chemical agent developed by a Cornell University chemical en- gineer may bring greater effi- ciency to JireJighting, the oil in- dustry and waste treatment plants. The new agent, which in ef- fect lubricates water, is a poly- sacchariiie, o chemical sub- stance similar to starch or the pectin which is used in jelly making. Robert K. Finn, professor of chemical engineer at schol, said the source of poWsaccarideis a new bacterium isolated from soil on Iho Cornell campus by Alex L. Tannaliill, a technical associate staff member. Finn explained llial In low concentrations Hie agent duces the friction of water, and acts as a thickening agent in concentrates. By lessening friction on the walls of pipes nr.rl hoses, tho new agent enables higher How fact which could mpko it useful to the firefighting ef- fort. It would, Finn said, enable water to be pumped further and at higher elevations than now is possible. In the petroleum industry, it could used in (lushing out crude oil (hat is usually left at the bottom of a And its thickening properties may useful in the separation of par- ticles from turbid waters at waste-treating plants. Finn says that it is pre- mature to speculate on tho commercial value for the new agent, but that the .new sub- stance is potentially cheaper than others of its kind and can be used over and over again BEEF SALE Alberta's Finest Government Graded and Inspected Red Brand Beef, Cut and Wrapped For Your Freezer.

Rockefeller should have gone to Attica slate prison before he or- dered police to storm it to sup- press a four-day riot in which 43 persons died. Issued a year after the rebel- lion bloodiest in American prison report was highly critical of the prison sj's- tem, officials who planned the assault, the "vengeful repris- als" against the prisoners, and officials who spread false re- Siiult. Three prisoners and a guard had died earlier in tho riot. The commission condemned taking hostages as a means o( changing society, "even where peaceful efforts at reform have failed." It agreed with Rockefeller that he could not and should have granted complete am- nesty to the prisoners, which was'a principal demand. But it said prosecution might have been, waived for lesser crimes, such as taking hostages without ports of prisoner atrocities. The riot did not result from a revolutionary conspiracy, tin commission said, but rather i "spontaneous burst o f violent anger" by a new breed of pris- oners. Those prisoners, it said, are largely black and unwilling to accept the "petty humiliations and racism that characterize prison life." It said only minor hanges have been made since he riot, and called the possi- ility of a recurrence "very eal." The commission acknowl- edged that Rockefeller had a lard decision, but said he 'should not have committed he state's armed forces against the rebels without first appearing on the scene and sat- sfying himself that there was no other alternative and that all precautions against ex- cessive force had been NOT THE CAUSE The nine-member commis- sion, headed by Robert B. McKay, dean of the New York University School of Law, said MEATS nowever, that Rockefeller's re- :usal to go to the prison was not the cause of the deaths anci casualties. There were 2D prisoners and 10 hostages killed in the as- PRICES EFFECTIVE SEPT. 14, IS, 16 WESTMINSTER PLAZA 13th St. and Sth Ave. N.

Addison Lynn Dorrans, 19, and David Dorrans, 21, sold a capsule of the drug to an RCMP undercover agent last May. One of them took the money and, the other handed over the drug. Mr. Justice A. J. Cullen said sentences must be imposed which will deter others from trafficking. GOV. KOCEFEKLLEK harming them, "an allernativ not sufficiently explored by e ther fide." the commissio said, "even if one could be cc: tain that the governor's appea: ance would not have led to settlement, the gravity of th Situation warranted the gove nor's presence before the sion was readied to commeni the assault." In its report, the commissii said the prisoners rioted b cause they were caught in ijusl, racist and ineffective i ison and criminal justice sys- m. Rather than being revolu- onary conspirators bent only i destruction, the Attica Ms were part of a new reed ol younger, more awaro mates, largely who me to prison full of deep fcel- gs of alienation and hostility gainfet the established in- .itulions of law and govern- lent, enhanced self-esteem, ra- uil pride and political aware- ess, and an unwillingness to ccept the petty humiliations ind racism that characterize rison the report said. .The commission went beyond ts instructions and proposed a even-point restructuring of the tales prison system, which it cknowledgcd would require far-reaching, indeed radical, hanges." "The only way to salvage neaning out of the otherwise enseless killings at Attica is to earn from this experience that ur Atticas are the :ommission said. 'The crucial issues remain unresolved; and they will con inue unresolved until an aroused public demands some hing better."
