Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Paris, Ottawa to bury hatchet PARIS (Reuter) French Foreign Minister Maurice Schu- mann will pay an official visit to Ottawa next week which both French and Canadian officials here regard as a turning point in relations between Ottawa and Paris. It will be the first such visit since 1967 when the late Gen. Charles de Gaulle worsened re- lations between the two capitals by crying "Vive le Quebec libre" (Long live free Quebec) during a visit to Montreal. The g e n e r a 1's apparently spontaneous cry was seen by many Canadian federal officials as encouragement for the sepa- ratist elements in Quebec whose aim is to free the province from federal control and set up a self-governing state. During his 24-hour visit, In which he will be treated as a visiting head of state, Schu- mann will hold talks on a wide range of topics with Prime Min- ister Trudeau and other federal officials. Schumann will arrive in Ot- tawa Wednesday, Sept. 22, and spend the following day in the federal capital at the invitation QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE 328-76R4" of External Affairs Minister Sharp. He will visit Quebec Thursday, Sept. 30, after attend- ing the United Nations General Assembly session in New York. RELATIONS WERE ICY After de Gaulle's celebrated outcry from the balcony ol Montreal's City Hall and the cancellation of the rest of his Canadian tour, relations be- tween France and Canada re- mained icy until the election of his successor, George Pompi- dou, as president in June, 1969. Pompidou has since sent sev- eral high-ranking French offi- cials on visits to Canada. Sharp came to Paris in April, 1970, for the inuaguration of a Canadian cultural visit which helped smooth oul many points of friction. Schumann's visit to Ottawa will crown long, patient efforts by the Canadian government to resume normal relations with France, Canadian officials here said. Ottawa wishes to see privi- leged relations developed fur- ther between Paris and Quebec, but with its full knowledge, thus safeguarding Canada's sover- eignty, a Canadian official said. MAY INVITE TRUDEAU Schumann's forthcoming visit might result in a French invita- tion to Trudeau to visit France, French officials said.

Schumann is expected to dis- cuss with the Canadian leaders the supplementary 10-per-cent U.S. duty on imports and the world monetary crisis. The European Common Mar- ket and prospects of increased traded with Canada also .rill figure prominently in the talks between Schumann and Shrrp. The two ministers also about these in Lisbon during a NATO ministerial meetinp, in June. Other topics include U.S. President Nixon's forthcoming visit to China and the Vietnam war as well as a proposed Euro- pean security conference. Death squads to protect police MONTREAL (CP) The spectre of South American-style vigilante "death squads" to combat attacks on police was raised here by Guy Marcil, president of the Montreal Po- licemen's Brotherhood. "Nobody wants a 'death squad' similar to the one exist- ing in Brazil, nor vigilante groups, but we're coming to that he told a news conference while commenting on the shooting of four Montreal police in five days. The morale of Montreal po- licemen had been severely strained by the shootings. 'It hasn't affected them to the point where they won't be able to do their jobs, but from now on, the police will not take any chances. Constable Jacques Chartrand, 23, was shot last Friday in the east end of the city and then on Monday, Det.-Sgt. Andro Ber- thiaume was shot in the abdo- men while chasing two holdup suspects in downtown Montreal. POLICEMEN SHOT Early Wednesday morning, constables Roland Thibodeau, 32, and Andre Michaud, 26, were shot when they interrupted the rape of a 19-year-old girl in Lhe city's downtown area. Sgt. Marcil feels that violence in the city is going to get worse unless a stiffer attitude toward crime and criminals is adopted. Murders are more common and more odious, and other crimes of violence have become almost a way of life.. MANUFACTURERS LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY M. C. (Malt) jlavich is pleased to Announce that R.

Drive "This is the price society is paying for its complacency." Sgt. Marcil warned even the laws devised by society for its own protection are being threatened. Police were not adequately equipped to combat criMe in the city. "We need additional fire- power, better cars and a wider use of closed-circuit television among other things. "Some of our firearms are outmoded and are only good at short range. The men patrolling in cars should be armed with ri- fles or shotguns or both. "In many cases we have men with revolvers shooting it out with bandits armed with ma- chine-guns." GIVES THEORY Meanwhile, Dr. Denis Szabo, head of the University of Mont- real's criminology department, said in an interview he believes that police shootings are a vis- cious circle that only the police can break. has happened is a rup- ture or breakdown of an unspo- ken agreement between police and ths underworld not to shoot ,-ther." police director Jean- Paul Gilbert, now a criminology professor, said that if the situa- tion continues "there's a dangv that police may begin to react very promptly with the use of their revolvers." "They become nervous and possibly the situation can de- velop that they decide not to take chances by waiting for the suspect to shoot Sgt. Marcil said that police- rr-tjii feel frustrated, not because they are being shot at, but be- cause of the sentences certain criminals receive, escapes from penal institutions and prema- ture paroles from prison. He said that the policeman is tile sworn front line of defence against assault on life and prop- erty. "If that front line is not sus- tained by the stern will of soci- ety, it is obvious we are going to deteriorate into a situation of open and sterile war between those who respect the law and those who break it." Meanwhile one man was charged Thursday with the at- tempted murder of Det.-Sgt. Berthiaume. Arraigned was Gilles Belanger, 23, who pleaded not guilty to a charge of non- capital murder. He was also charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Police were still hunting for a tall, thin Negro man in connec- tion with tile shootings of con- stables Thibodeau and Michaud. Constable Thibodeau was still reported in critical condition in hospital early today. -----Saturday, Sepltmbir It, 1971 _ THE LETHBRIDuE HEKAID CELEBRATES 25 YEARS AT THE MET Jerome Mines, who has sung for 25 years for the Metropolitan Opera, enjoys laugh with his wife tucia during reception held in his honor at the Lincoln Centre.

OTTAWA (CP) Drug abuse patterns of tomorrow will span the use of multiple drugs, a re- newed interest in cocaine, an upsurge in heroin and growing numbers of women drug users, i These trends shape them- selves in centres of drug taking on both sides of the Haight-Ashbury in San Fran- cisco, East Village in New York, the Old Town of Chicago, St. Louis and, in Canada, Van- couver. "Like ripples in a pond, they, radiate Dr. George R. Gay of the Haight-Ashl-ury free clinic told the World Medi- cal Association. "This is the year of multiple drug abuse, partly because of the unavailability of high grade heroin. j "Next year may well be the year of the G.I. junkie. "We are seeing a trend to co- caine and highly-concentrated heroin abuse among returned Vietnam veterans." NOW ONE IN THREE j Where 10 years ago only one j in seven drug takers was a j w o rn a n, Haight-Ashbury is seeing one in every three. The clinic serves an area where the flower children of a j decade ago have been replaced i by ragged youngsters who pan- handle to support an addiction. "We are dealing with a dope- saturated young population who have come to the ultimate in! any Dr. Gay' said. Dr. J. J. Huot of Montreal's St. Jean de Dieu mental hospi-j tal said abuse patterns in this' country "start from the west coast and come east." "We can predict a lot more heroin in Montreal in a year or tU'O." Dr. Gay and Dr. Huot both appealed for more clinic set- tings with detached workers in the 21-25 age group able to live j in the "counter culture" and guide drug takers to medical! help when it is needed by them.
