The Lethbridge Herald WASHINGTON (AP) President Pord has confirmed that the CIA acted against former Chilean president Salvador Allende as a Senate committee considers whether to pursue charges it was misl- ed about those activities. A Senate foreign relations subcommittee staff report recommends action against former CiA director Richard Helms and three other of- ficials for sworn testimony minimizing the CIA activity, congressional sources say. The report was scheduled for consideration by the full com- mittee today. There were conflicting ac- counts whether the report rec- ommends perjury investiga- tions, contempt of Congress charges or some combination of the two. The report also was said to be critical of State Secretary Henry Kissinger for testifying there was no U.S. involvement in the bloody coup in which Al- lende died last year, but say- ing nothing about the previous CIA activity. Senator Frank Church chairman of the subcommittee for which the report was prepared, refused to give details but said the full committee will take up both the propriety of the CIA ac- tivities and officials' truthfulness about them. Ford said at his news conference Monday night there is no doubt in his mind that there was no U.S. involve- ment in Chile's coup. But he confirmed that the CIA sup- ported Allende's opposition in the 1970 elections. "It is a recognized fact that historically, as well as presently, such actions are taken in the best interest of the countries involved." the president said. Ford said he would not judge whether such activity is permitted by international law. He said he has been reliably informed the Communist countries "spend vastly more money than we do for the same kind of purposes." Ford said the CIA activity was in response to what he said was an effort by Allende, a Marxist, "to destroy opposi- tion news media, both the writing press as well as the electronic press, and to destroy opposition political parties." "The effort that was made in this Ford said, "was to help and assist the preser- vation of opposition new- spapers and electronic media and to preserve opposition political parties." Social planner's post goes to city employee "Serving and Selling The South" Tom Hudson, a recreation programs co-ordinator with the city for five years, has been named superintendent of social planning. Mr. Hudson, 28, will fill the position left vacant since May when Tony Tobin resigned to become executive director of the Centre for Personal and Community Development. As superintendent of social planning, Mr. Hudson's chief responsibilities include the general development of com- munity resources and projects aimed at preventing social and personal problems. He will be directly involved with six such projects now operating in the city including the Centre for Personal and Community Development, the Lethbridge Society for Meals on Wheels, the Golden Mile Drop-In Centre, the Birth Control and Information Center, the North Lethbridge Day Care Centre and Lethbridge Pre-School Ser- vices. The community services directorate should function in an integrated way so that all the departments operate with social planning in mind, Mr. Hudson said.

The AHC. a Crown corpo- ration, filed a statement of claim in Alberta Supreme Court Monday. The statement of claim ac- cuses Mr. Orysiuk, a key wit- ness in a judicial inquiry in- vestigating actions of former AHC personnel, of entering into a secret agreement with Edmonton lawyer Edward P. Achtem to split commissions paid to the lawyer and acting negligently, incompetently and in breach of his duty in engaging the lawyer at "an exorbitant rate of com- mission." It also alleges that Mr. Or- ysiuk acted in the same manner in paying more than could have reasonably been expected for land and causing the corporation to borrow million on improvident and onerous terms from "foreign lenders." The statement of claim also alleges that Mr. Orysrok re- ceived by way of secret com- mission, reward or kickback the sum of in connec- tion with (he loan.

Riot police chased hundreds of students shouting "Down with the Earlier in the day troops and police used water cannon to break up a de- monstation by students shouting for the restoration of civilian government. It was the first public dis- play of opposition to the 13- man Armed Forces Co- ordinating Committee that has taken control of the government in the last six months and deposed Emperor Haile Selassie last week. The military committee said Sunday night that it believes soldiers should stay out of politics. But it said it cannot return to the barracks yet because that would leave the country open to power- hungry civilians or military strong men. The committee sent five officers to the university cam- pus Monday afternoon to ex- plain its aims. About students, businessmen, housewives and office workers turned the meeting into a general discussion of the country's future. There was some jeering, but most of the exchanges, were good-natured. The officers promised the restoration of civil liberties and a return to civilian government. But they said this must be accomplish- ed slowly because the country- has no democratic traditions. The Confederation of Ethio- pian Labor Unions at its an- nual meeting condemned the military ban on strikes and demonstrations. It told the workers to "hold themselves ready for forthcoming measures" to help the people "take their destiny in their hands." A spokesman said the measures will include strikes. The federation also demand- ed abolition of the old monarchy, which the military is seeking to retain as a powerless unifying figurehead. It has asked Haile Selassie's son, Crown Prince Asfa Wossen, to return from Switzerland and become king. But he is partially paralysed from a stroke nearly two years ago and has not an- nounced his decision. AGTL withdrawing from Arctic plan CALGARY (CP) Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. (AGTL) of Calgary announced Monday its withdrawal from a consortium proposing a billion Mackenzie valley pipeline. AGTL said in a statement that it notified 27 other mem- bers of the Gas Arctic-North- west Project Study Group of its withdrawal on Friday. An AGTL spokesman said the company now wants to pursue a all- Canadian Arctic natural gas pipeline through Foothills Pipelines Ltd., a federally- chartered company within the AGTL organization. AGTL was an original spon- sor and operator of the Gas Arctic Systems Study Group to form the Gas Arctic- Northwest Project Study Group. Two subsidiaries were formed by the new Arctic Gas Study Ltd. to study the feasibility of the proposed pipeline, and Canadian Arctic Gas Pipeline Ltd. to construct the proposed pipeline. The spokesman said much of the uncertainty of the CAGP proposal lies in the fact that it would require the approval of the governments of the United States and the State of Alaska since the proposal calls for the tran- sportation of Alaskan gas along with Mackenzie delta gas to pipelines and market? in the United States KEY POINTS UNCERTAIN And while "access to this supply for future Canadian markets is becoming a matter of relative AGTL said, "there are still many key issues unresolved" with the CAGP project. On the other hand, the Foot- hills proposal will not reuire U.S. approval since it will transport Canadian gas only. However, AGTL said, the proposed Foothills pipeline "can be expanded most co- opera, lively to serve Alaskan gas export and can also market to the U.S. any excess in Canadian supply." William Wilder, CAGP chairman, said in a statement that it is "undesirable" that the United States and Canada should construct two separate pipelines to carry Arctic gas to markets. El Paso Pipelines Ltd. is studying the feasibility of con- structing a trans-Alaska natural gas pipeline. Mr. Wiler said the Foothills project will require more delta gas reserves than have been proven to date and the financing of two pipelines will be more difficult than a single one as propoed by CAGP.
