The Attica tragedy Horror, dismay reflected by journalists of world Nervousness prevails in Middle East By CY FOX Canadian Press Slnff Writer There isn't much noise at present in the perennially tense Middle East but there's a great deal of nervousness about the immediate Mure of the area, LONDON (AP) "I am sick- ened by wrote a British correspondent who vis- ited New York's Attica prison after the riot that took the lives of 41 convicts and prison em- ployees. Newspapers throughout Eu- rope published lengthy accounts of the bloody end to the jail mu- tiny under headlines reflecting i day horror and dismay. Several newspapers blamed the rebellion on racial pressures inside the prison. Austria's Ku- rier said the penal syslem "drove the inmates to their des- perate uprising."

(AP) Col- umbia University says it has found in a United States-wide survey of youngsters that those who use marijuana are less likely to become cigarette jmokers than those who don't. The university's school of pub- lic health said Tuesday its sur- vey covered youngsters in the age bracket from all sections of the U.S. Of the surveyed adolescents who have used marijuana 10 times or less, 83 per cent are cigarette smokers. Cigarette usage fell to 64 per cent among those who have used marijuana 60 or more times, the New York City school said. "Apparently, if you smoke pot a lot, who needs said Dr. Eric Josephson of Col- umbia, who reported on the sur- vey at a conference on student drug use. particularly in view of the latest diplomatic developments in the capital of Egypt. For the time being, the nerv- ousness is mainly restricted to the Israelis, worried as they nre about the statements made in Cairo by the visiling British for- eign secretary, Sir Alec Doug- las-Home. But surprise, if not shock, was registered in some sections of t h e governing Conservative parly in London after the news- paper publication of Douglas- Horn e 's statements together with a photograph of the ordi- narily sedate foreign secretary dressed in Arab robes and rid- ing a camel during a visit to the Egyptian pyramids. Though depicting the veteran British diplomat in a light- hearted "Lawrence of Arabia" mood, the photograph gave extra impact to a speech by the. foreign secretary which sug- gested that Britain is supporting demands for Israeli withdrawal from all territories occupied during the June war of 1967. Such withdrawal should be Sfore sold ETXIKOM (HNS) Mr. and Mrs. Warren Penner and fam- ily, who have been proprietors of the Etzikom General Store for several years, have sold the store to Mr. and Mrs. Dav Jenson and purchasd a retail food businss in Victoria. carried out in return for an end to all "claims of belligerency" between Israel and the Arabs, Douglas-Home said. SADAT WARNED Later he appeared more con- sistent with traditional British policy on the Middle East in the way he emphasized to Egyptian President Sadat that the United States cannot be expected to go beyond certain limits in bring- ing peace-making pressures to bear on Israel. Nevertheless, the foreign sec- retary's support for the idea of Israeli withdrawal from present military positions irritated au- thorities in Jerusalem. In London, the Conservative Daily Telegraph conceded that Douglas-Home's Cairo state- ments were aimed at strength- ening relations between Britain and the Arab countries. "But appearing in fancy dress is not the right way to go about added The Telegraph in a reference to what it termed the former prime minister's "im- probable impersonation of T. T. Lawrence." 'T'ougias-Home as the newspaper bitingly calls him, now is 67 years of Criticism of him from Conserv- ative quarters can only add credence to reports that his re- tirement from the foreign office may not be long delayed. RAISES HOPES But of more immediate inter- national importance is the fact that the British statesman's re- marks are bound to intensify expectalions about the pros' pects for a permanent peace in the Middle East. One British explanation of President Sadat's current pro- gram of reform in Egypt argues that the projected changes may be the chief of state's way of preparing his country for an ul- timate renewal of war with Is- rael.

And with the Israelis recently claiming to have shot down an Egyptian warplane in the Suez canal zone, there may be added reason for undertaking some new attempt at bringing the Middle East antagonists closer to a permanent peace settle- at the expense of ruffling some feathers on the home front in the west.

Ph. 357-2793 Qiarles launches navy hitch LONDON (AP) Prince Charles began a two-year hitch in the Royal Navy today and his seven-year-old brother Prince Edward started at Gibbs Prepa- ratory School in Kensington. Edward was joined at Gibbs by James Ogilvy, son of Prin- cess Alexandra, and James Feber, which effectively broke up the palace nursery sclrool. Other graduates of the palace classroom, include Princess Margaret's son and daughter, Viscount Linley Lady Sarah Windsor. Prince Charles, heir to the throne, is already checked out by the Royal Air Force in flying Jet aircraft. He has elected to do this principal military stint in the navy as did his grand- father George VI and hi5 great- grandfather George V. He enrolled as a sub-lieuten- ant at Dartmouth Academy, took possession of a 6-by-7-foot cabin after being met at the naval college by top brass as befits his royal position. From now on, however, he will share one steward with other training officers and use the same bath and showers as 38 of his mates. For the first six weeks, the prince will be un- dergoing basic training. He will be assigned to the guided mis- sile destroyer Norfolk for sea duty. Bill gives British courts more power LONDON (AP) British courts will be given stronger powers to make criminals com- pensate their victims under a new bill to be presented to Par- liament next month. Home Secretary Reginald Maudling announced plans for the bill in a speech Tuesday, but did not give details. If the bill follows recommen- dations submitted by a govern- ment advisory council last year it will let courts declare prison- ers "criminal seize their assets and hand them over to the victims. It would also em- power courts to uncover the hid- den assets of professional crimi- nals. Under existing laws, court-s can order compensation only after offenders have been re- leased on probation or condi- tionally discharged from prison. A high court judge, Justice Lawton, proposed Monday that young criminals work on public works project and turn over part of their pay to n bonrcl which would then compensate the victims of their crimes. SEE THROUGH ICE Eskimos living in igloos me blocks of clear ice for window- panes. Ivor Key of the London Daily Express, the correspondent who said the United States sickens him reported from New York: "For the first time in four years of living and working here I am shocked to the point where I seriously question whether this is the country I want to raise my children in. Key said he does not believe the Attica incident could happen anywhere else in the world. Lib- eral U.S. courts encourage criminality. "We should be careful lest we fall into the trap that the Amer- icans have laid for themselves. In their efforts to encourage po- litical freedom and racial toler- ance they have created a refuge for the criminal and the anarch- ist." Tass, the Soviet news agency, said in a dispatch from New York that the U.S. public "re- ceived the news of the brutal massacre with wrath and indignation." It said the "unbearable condi- tions, brutality and terror of the prison authorities" had brought the prisoners to despair and they took the situation into their own hands. "But the authorities of the Slate of New York, with Gov. Nelson Rockefeller at the head, replied to these just demands with shots, bayonets and tear gas." The Financial Times, Brit- ain's business daily, com- mented: "The revolt was instigated not Just by rebellious convicts but by inmates who were, almost to a man, black and Puerto Rican. "It was, in many ways, as naked a racial confrontation as were any of the riots in Ameri- ca's cities in (he late '60s." The Vatican daily 1'Osserva- tore Romano said in a headline from New York that the revolt ended in a "blood but carried no comment. Avanti, the Socialist party newspaper, compared the Attica incident with the killings at My Lai, South Vietnam. urges CN rail safety committee OTTAWA (CP) A Canadian National Railways spokesman asked the Canadian Transport Commission today to set up a special committee to find solu- tions to railway safety prob- lems. CN counsel Howard J. G. Pye made the call at the final argu- ment session of a railway safety enquiry launched by the CTC last .September. lie said the special committee should include representatives of the railways, labor groups and the commission. The com- mittee would be able to continue the co-operative effort existing nt the commission's enquiry. Mr. Pyc said the commilloe could review the Uniform Code of Operating Rules, CTC orders nnd procedure for carrying dan- gerous commodities. There also was a need to "Im- prove Iho quality of accident in- vestigation." Last year AGT helped buy ten million dollars worth of groceries AGT, p.rtol Ten million dollars worth of groceries will keep the cash registers ringing in five large-size Alberta supermarkets, twelve months a year. That makes five Alberta supermarket managers and all their employees very happy. And last year our 6700 employees did just that. They did more for Alberta than just buy gro- ceries, though. Because last year their pay- checks totalled over 46 million dollars. And this money was spent in many ways. AGT people Bought over 650 new cars, and spent over seven and a half million dollars on new homes and apartments. Plus about two million dollars to keep those same homes and ments furnished. What does It all mean to you? Just this. Every time you spend even a dime with AGT, someone else benefits. Because when our employees spend money in Albsrta, other Albertans are on the receiving end. And that helps keep Alberta's economy rolling ahead. AT AGT YOUR DIMES DO BUY MORE THAN CONVERSATION ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES ;
