LXV No. 233 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1972 PRICK NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 28 PAGES To Moscow with love hockey style By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA "It will be like four Grey Cup days rolled inlo one." Moscow, due lo be invaded by and more Ca- nadian hockey enthusiasts, had better brace Itself. It Is in for a shock. That is the consensus in govern- ment circles here. Veterans Affairs Minister Arthur Laing, grimaced Wednesday when he heard the "Grey Cup" descrip- tion of Canadians in Moscow for the Russia-Canada hockey series Sept. 22 to 28. But he had to admit it was an apt description. A bottle of Vodka sells retail in the "dollar" stores in Moscow for 88 cents American. Tlie large Canadian contingent thai is making the trip to Moscow to watch North America's professional hockey players try to redeem themselves after the dis- astrous series in Canada, will be ready to celebrate or mourn. Either way the celebrants or mourners could leave a lasting impression on the Soviet capital city. "I have to admit that 88-cent Vodka could pose a said Mr. Laing. He has reason to be somewhat concerned because he is heading the Canadian government delegation. He leaves Monday for the U.S.S.R. with the official gov- ernment party. Fingers crossed "I'm sure our people will behave themselves. It should he a great trip and good for Canadian-Russian said the minister for the record. Others in the official party are not so sure. They are keeping their fingers crossed. Health and Welfare Minister Jolm Munro was sup- posed to head up the Canadian government delegation. He begged off when the election was called. Outcome of the Soviet-Canada series could even have an impact on the general election. One government spokesman said wryly "The Ca- nadian psyche is a tender tlu'ng." lie added, "It has been severely bruised." If (he Canadian professional team does not make a good showing in Moscow and comes back to this coun- try roundly beaten that "psyche" will be badly hurt. Some voters might even vote against the government lo register their bitter disappointment. That is the assessment of one man who has been close to the government and Team Canada in help- ing arrange the scries. He is surprised at the way the series has turned out. so far and Canadians' re- actions. Run into hitch Meantime Mr. Laing was disturbed to read In tha newspapers Wednesday that a plane load of 136 Mon- trealers will head for Moscow next week without any tickets for the games. They are angry and indignant. They may have lo watch the game on television. Intotirist, the Soviet national travel agency, can- celled the hockey tickets the 1SG were supposed to have waiting for them in Russia. Hie tickets had been promised in writing, but due to a mixup the Rus- sians came to the conclusion that Ihe tour party would not reach Moscow in time to attend the games and got rid of the promised tickets. Mr. Laing is hopeful that the Soviet government will act to rectify the nu'xiip. He suggests that 136 Russians expecting to attend the games may find themselves without tickets, or other seats will be found. However he has had no assurances of that from anyone in authority. He is just basing his statement on his experiences during earlier trips to Russia when the Soviet people proved to be very good hosts. Leonid Korsik, Inlourist manager in Canada Is "optimistic" pressure can be applied to make tickets available. There are more than Canadians, he says, go- ing to Moscowr. Hotel accommodation is very limited. There will be three and more in some rooms. There could be "se- rious problems." Mr, Laing as the official government head of the delegation will be uneasily, front and centre. Big tapioca pudding cooks in freighter lire CARDIFF, Wales (AP) For a while today, the biggest tapioca pudding in the world threatened to split the seams of a Swiss freighter, but a dock offi- cial said firemen and the ship's crew finally got things under control. The official said dock workers were unloading the Cassarate, which a fire chief had earlier call- ed a "huge tapioca lime bomb." Firemen earlier controlled the fire which started in timber stacked in the upper holds 25 days ago at sea. Tiie crew kept the smouldering timber dampen- ed until the ship docked here late Tuesday. But the water from Cardiff's hoses seeped down to the lower holds where tons of tapioca from Thai- land were stored. The water swelled the tapioca. Then the heat from the flames started to cook the sticky mess. The swelling to serve a million buckle Ihe ship's steel plates, fire chiefs warned. They plan to load the gluey mess on to a fleet o[ trucks and dispose of it. One report said there was enough to fill 500 trucks. But where do you dump 500 Iruckloads of tapioca pudding? sells wheat to China WASHINGTON (AP) The agriculture department said to- day trade documents Inijlcate that about 15 million bushels of. United States wheat have been sold to China. The department's export marketing service said export payment registrations it re- ceived under a special wheat export program, in effect from Aug. 25 to Sept. 1, indicate that quantity has been designated for delivery to the Communist nation. The service said, however, that even though export pay- ments on the grain have been certified, it doesn't necessarily mean that sales were made by U.S. exporters directly to China. It said that sales made through third parties for re-ex- port to China also qualify for U.S. export subsidies. The subsidies are paid ex- porters to make U.S. wheat more competitive on the world market. The department's announce- ment was the first official word of the deal with China. Earlier, Washington sources indicated a 20-millioa-bushel order had been obtained from China. At current wheat prices of about a bushel, a 15-mil- lion-bushel -order would be worth about million. The department issued its statement at about the time Ag- riculture Secretary Earl L. Bulz went to the Capitol to face congressional quizzing about aspects of a U.S.-Soviet muKi- million dollar wheat deal. "The sale (to the Soviets) is good for all Butz said in testimony for a llama ol Representatives agriculture subcommittee. "It Is a major contribution to better com- mercial and political relations between two powerful nations." Butz, in his prepared testi- mony, made no reference to sale of grain to China. But Butz, alter Washington scources said Wednesday that a U.S. grain firm had obtained s 20-million-bushel order from the People's Republic of China, said if a deal was pending or concluded he was unaware of it.

In a motu decreo by his own Pope ex- tended the lower-church minis- tries of Bible reading and altar service to lay Catholics pro- vided they are men. "In accordance with the ven- erable tradition of the church, installation in the ministries of lector and acolyte is reserved to the 74-year-old pontiff said. The rilling does not actually prohibit women from Bible reading or from performing some altar services, but it bars them from formal investiture by a bishop to do so. The ban was a setback to many in the church, from car- dinals to nuns, who had called for a role for women among church "ministers" in keeping with the modern principle of equality of sexes. .-BISHOP.JS VIEWS NOTED The Pope said he made the decision after "having taken into account the views" of bish- ops around the world. However, he has not implemented a rec- ommendation by the 1971 Synod of Bishops which urged the Vatican to set up a special commission to seek ways to en- hance the role of women in the church and in society at large. The Vatican says the com- mission is still in the planning stage. By his decree, the Pope de- nied Roman Catholic women formal ministerial recognition of what they have been doing since the 1962-65 ecumenical council. Lay lectors were given the functions of reading the except for the di- rect singing daring mass. In recent years many bishops around the world have allowed nuns to give communion when there were no priests available. In the 1971 synod, Latin Ameri- can bishops said there were so few pricsls in their countries that in some areas nuns gave communion and carried out most of the priestly tasks in the mass except for the con- secration of the Host. The celibacy rules for dea- cons and priests were re-stated in a separate motu proprio. In it the Pope said the ceremony of ordination was being revised to include a vow of chastity for unmarried candidates. Currently seminarians vow a chaste life during the ceremony of sub-diaconate, which the Pope now has dropped. The decree re-stated the obli- gation of celibacy for "candi- dates to the priesthood and for unmarried candidates to the diaconatc." It also confirmed that "a married deacon who has lost his wife cannot enter a new marriage." The two decrees will come into effect Jan. 1.

While more than 200 women cheered, several speakers gave their personal views Wednes- day night on why hating men is an essential subject related to women's equality. The confer- ence, closed to men, was organ- ized by The Feminists of New York, who had a similar speak- out on rape several months ago. "We have a moral cause for hating men for they have taken away all our said Bar- bara Mirnoff of the Feminists. "Men have imposed their minds and bodies on women and our hatred is a natural re- sponse, a rational and political hatred developing from cen- turies of male rule." The women in the audience had paid up to to hear speakers sucli as Robin Mor- gan, editor of an anthology of feminist writings, Sisterhood is Powerful, and Jill Johnston, a lesbian and writer for the Vil- lage Voice. Ms. Morgan read some of her favorite man-hating poems from her new book, The Mon- ster. "I want a woman's revolution like a lover. I lust for it. How I wish that my tears were bullets to kill what ter- rorizes in men." Pat Mainardi, married, Ilia sulhor of The Politics of House- work, and the editor of the Fe- minist Art Journal, said: "Man-hating marks a turning point in tho movement. We have been defensive long enough." "People often ask me how a married women can be a man- said Ms. Mainardi. "And I wonder, how can we be anything the women cheered.
