Iran-Turkey rail link to be inaugurated soon By RALPH JOSEPH CP Correspondent TEHRAN (CP) The long-awaited rail link between Iran and Turkey is scheduled to be inaugurated finally Sept. 24. The last stretch from fie Qotor bridge to the Turkish border was ready a lew months ago, but the inaugura- tion had to wait Tor the com- pletion of the ferry across Lake Van on the Turkish side. The railway connects Iran lo Europe via the famous Istanbul Train, passing through Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Austria and on to Western Eu- rope. It closes one of four gaps that have prevented pas- sengers going by train all the way from Paris lo Singapore. The remaining gaps are those between Kerman and Zahedan inside Iran, the one across the Pakistan-Bui-ma border and that across the Burma-Thai- land bonier. Already plans Co close the Kerman-Zahedan gap are being discussed in Tehran and the project is likely to be taken up during Iran's fifth five-year plan. The fourth plan (March 1968 lo March currently being imple- mented, provides for only a survey of the area in south- eastern Iran. The Iran-Turkey line goes almost due west from Tabriz on the Iranian side, skirting the northern lip of the beauti- ful but almost forgotten Lake Bezaiyeh after passing Shar- afkhaneh, and then across the Qolor valley, which made for one of the most difficult con- struction stretches. This had lo be crossed by a 390-foot- high bridge, made in the United States and imported to Iran in parts. FERRY CROSSING On Uie Turkish side Ihe line again goes through difficult mountain territory to Van, one of the towns Turkey lias been trying to develop as a tourist resort. The railway should do the trick, as it crosses Lake Van by a 50-mile ferry ride. Officials in Tehran believe Ihe train should be popular enough lo enable five or six runs a week. In fact, coun- tries like Iran do not face the same problem of lack of train passengers as in the more de- veloped countries of the West, and the official forecast may not be entirely off the mark. For one thing the train should provide an interesting alterna- tive to tourists who now must use buses and cars to travel east. However, being an express, the train will not have many stops along the way. Tickets being sold in Tehran early this month will be available for Zakeria Razi on Ihe Iran- Turkish border. Van, Heydar Pasha port and Istanbul in Turkey, and then for Bel- grade, Vienna, Munich, Paris, The Hague, Brussels London, and Paris. From Turkey it will be pos- sible to get connections to Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq through older interna- tional lines already linking these Middle Eastern coun- tries. FARES LOW From Tehran Uie farthest point east to which one can get a connection as of now is Mashad, near the Afghan bor- der. The rest still is in the planning stage. There are plans to take the line from Mashad to Taiyabad, on the Afghan border; plans to take the southern line from Zar- and, where it now stops, on IB Kerman and Zahedan, from where it will link up with the Pakistan line; plans to take yet another line from Mashad to Kerman and then south to Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf, opening a trade transit route for the Afghans, and a whole lot of lesser plans, all currently being discussed with varyuig degrees of enthusi- asm. For those who do not mind the discomfort of train travel in exchange for being able to see something along the way, the first-class fare from Teh. ran to Paris will be ?80, a lot less than the air fare. Spymasters come up with new gimmick BONN (AP) East German spymasters have come up with a new gimmick lo recruit spies in West loans at three per ctnt. The at- tempt is aimed mainly at Ihe West German government and military personnel. The loan company, which gives an East Berlin address, asked potential clients lo com- plete a return-mail answer card giving reasons lor requested funds. Those who gave "reasons I would prefer not to discuss" had the best prospects of obtain- ing money. They would he hired unobtru- sively by Communist East Ger- many's espionage service, says a report by the West German Federal Office for State Secu- rity. If clients seemed unwilling or unsuited to pass on secret infor- mation to East Germany, their loan applications would be refused. Nobody knows how many spies are operating in West Ger- many today, but new incidents are reported almost every month. Ex-footballer gets parks post VICTORIA (CP) A former Alberta parks planner has been appointed chief of master plan- ning for British Columbia's pro- vincial parks, Recreation Min- ister Ken Kiernan said today. Ted D. Frechette will be re- sponsible for planning parks and deciding on specific uses for various parks. A former linebacker with Edmonton Es- kimos of the western football conference, he holds an engin- eering degree from the Univer- sity of Alberta. Firm develops mini-computer OTTAWA (CP) The Trans- Canada Telephone System has developed n new mini.cojiipul.- cr lo simplify computer com- munica lions. TCTS, a group n[ eight rial or regional Lelephono com- panies, announced loday lhal the computer will be ,1 part o[ a digital data system expected to bo in operation by l.ile 1972. TCTS officials said installa- tion of eqiu'pmcnl linking 01- tawa, Toronto and Calgary is expected lo be complete by De- cember this year. The mini-computer translates data into a form understood by a largo computer, controls the commimicntions circuits and di- agnoses problems in Ihe syslcm. The mini computer can bo programmed lo handle any data code or speed iulo a form nc- ccplablo lo Ihe large computer it is serving. ELIMINATES RE-WIRING This eliminates re-wiring or other altcralions of Ihe large compulor la handle different kinds of material. The equipment lias been de- veloped by Bell Northern Re- search, Datagen of Canada Lid., end Bell Canada computer communications group. TCTS oflicials said that proto- types of Uie national digital ctala network announced last March liavo been tested suc- cessfully. The network, when it is launched in late 1972, will first use the existing micro- wave syslcm. They said TCTS plans to in- stall a special co-axial cable be- tween Quebec City and London, Out., by 1976 to handle digital data messages. Tin's would tic in wilh Hie existing micro-wave syslcm which would serve the rest of Canada. An initial section is to be put in place Iwlwecn Oltawa and Smiths Falls by the fall of 1972. TI.AN ANNOUNCED SEOUL (AP) Tlio South Korean government has an- nounced a plan to improve and beautify Ihe M-milc road from Seoul lo Ihe neutral Iruce vil- lage of Pamnunjom, nt n cost of ?7.9 million over four years. The security office report for 1970 gives the number of known acts of espionage ordered by East European countries last year as which 571 were actually carried oul. Known espionage recruits last year totalled 768, 31 per cent more lhan the previous year. But Ihe activity uncovered by West German counter-spies is believed lo represent only Uie Lip of a much larger iceberg. About 80 per cenl of the spies rendered harmless last year were under orders from the Communist eastern half o! div- ided Germany. Money remains the favorite bait lo recruit informants. A new method by Ihe Easl Ger- mans is to approach needy stu- denls, who often are ideologi- cally sympathetic, for use as so-called "prospective candi- dates." Once they reach Influential positions as civil servants, in in- dustry or in scientific research, Ihe East Germans hope, they wilJ start paying off. Young people who apply to study in East Germany, often because they cannot find places in crowded West Gorman uni- versities, are olher targets for the recruiters. Czechoslovakia's spy system appears lo rank second only lo East Germany's, Thousands of Czechs swelling the three mil- lion or so migratory foreign workers who fill a suable gap in West German labor resources provide a fertile field. Tbo Czechs work mainly In the hotel and restaurant trade, where an alert waller can pick up occasional items of Informa- tion. For West Germany, one of the encouraging fealures ij that moio agents than before are turning themselves in, appar- ently in response lo a call by in- terior Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher. He offered lenient trealmenllo reluctanlly-ln- volved spies willing to surren- der to Ihe aulhorilies, OLD FASHIONED PRICES NYLONS 2 r CHAD (Chinese tJVMr Complexion Soap) Sandalwood scent Jade leqf scent 2 r 25" itoofcr fRffiC SPECIAL COMBINATION OFFER WIGS 1.00 EACH Centre Village Mall Phone 326-6980 A Browser's Paradise Beaded Curtain Hand strung, ready lo hong, color blended and multi-shaped, vinyl track.
