Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, Soptombor 28, 1970 lames 'Society' .S. Campus Unrest WASHINGTON' (AM A presidential commission's re- port on campus violence in Ihe United Slates has been greeted with much of the indifference and cynicism the commission indicated is reflected in student unrest. The weekend report by the president's commission on cam- pus unrest blamed much of soci- student terrorist, the authority who shoots needlessly, the teacher who tolerates dis- ruption, the college administra- tor who forfeits discipline. And it laid a large measure of the blame also on the U.S. gov- ernment, not only for what it does or doesn't do, but what it says. The report was submitted after a three-month study. The commission headed by Biological Background Urged For Park Heads EDMONTON (CP) Offi- cials who run Canada's parks should have biological and ecological, rather than engi- neering, backgrounds, the fed- eration of Alberta Naturalists said Saturday. "It is unfortunate that prob- lems in the parks are treated as construe lion engineer- Commission Can't Honor Promise Made By Pearson OTTAWA (CP) The. Public Service Commission has found that it can't fully honor a com- mitment once made to govern- ment employees by former Montreal Aid Rapped By Sykes CALGARY (CP) The fed- eral government is' "knuckling under" to Montreal demands for assistance in financing at- tractions such as expositions and Olympic games, Mayor Rod Sykes said Sunday. Calgary will oppose helping to "pay for Montreal's parties before they straighten out their he said in a weekly radio braodcast. "City administrators there have made no solutions for that city's treatment of sewage, bousing or welfare. "Western Canada has been milked dry from the extrava- gances of Montreal." Mayor Sykes indicated sev- eral months ago that he was unhappy with continued federal assistance for Montreal events and said the city was using economic blackmail to get its money. Authorizes Aid UNITED NATIONS (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said here h e has authorized a grant of to the Canadian Hed Cross for emergency relief in war-lorn Jordan. He also is expected to recommend1 to the cabinet that provision for the authorization of further grants be made. TRUMPET RENTALS .50 PER MONTH MUSICLAND Cor. 3rd Ave. 13th St. S. Phone 327-1056 prime minister Lester Pearson, Chairman John Carson said Sunday. Appearing on the CTV pro- gram Question Period, Mr. Car- son said there have been iso- lated instances where the com- mission has turned its back on the Pearson commitment that unilingual public servants would not be penalized under the gov- ernment's campaign to promote bilingualism in the service. "I think Mr. Pearson, how- ever well intended, earnestly hoped that this could be achieved but the goals we have set for otirselves particu- larly since the passage of the Official Languages Act, mean that you can't slavishly adhere to the total commitment. "We're trying to keep this down to the most reasonable level possible." Mr. Carson said he thinks the commission has been "reasona- bly successful" in achieving the goal of a bilingual public serv- ice with a minimum of disrup- tion and careers placed in jeop- ardy. No Evidence Singer Took Oivn Life LONDON (AP) A London coroner ruled today that there was insufficient evidence to sug- gest Jimi Hendrix had taken his own life and returned an open verdict.

J. C. Finlay of the Edmon- ton Natural History Club said many scientists are not inter- ested in being administrators or managers, "such as park employees have to be." Aileen Harmon of the Bow Valley naturalists said that scientists who are able to get positions hi parks don't have enough authority. "They get frustrated and quit." The directors decided to draft a resolution on the sub- ject for distribution to mem- bers. The federation consists of natural history, conservation and ecology groups in the prov- ince. The president is M. T. Myres of the University of Cal- gary. Pilots Seek Bulletproof Cockpits WASHINGTON (AP) Air- line pilots are demanding the shelter of bulletproof cockpit doors more than ever now that armed marshals ride their planes as a guard against hi- jackers. The Air Line Pilots Associa- tion emphasized this in a state- ment filed here with the Fed- eral Aviation Administration in support of the bulletproof-cock- pit requirement proposed by the FAA. "Now that armed security guards have been placed on air carrier aircraft, the possibility of gunfire in the cabin has in- creased, and it is likely that bullets from the cabin may ac- c i d e n t a 11 y enter the flight ALPA said. Transportation Secretary John A. Volpe said here fed- eral guards will not hesitate to shoot if other measures fail to halt a hijacking. Capt. Charles H. Ruby, ALPA president, said the union has en- dorsed the secure-cockpit con- cept for several years and "wants action now." ALPA said the-FAA require- ment that the door to the flight deck be kept locked has failed to prevent hijackings, sabotage or interference.

What made Seagram's Five Star outsell all other brands of whisky in Canada? Your good taste! It's easy to understand why. Superb blend. Easy taste and easy to look at. Plus the Seagram name and quality. The proof? That's easy, too! The easy whisky. Seagram's FIVE STAR CANADIAN RYE WHISKY former Pennsylvania governor William Scranton, a Republican, called on all of society to united against the pressures that set off the mobs, bombings and ever, killings at universities and colleges during the last year. LOOKS TO NIXON But it was to President Ntxon that the commission, and Scran- ton in particular, looked for a solution. "Only the president has the platform and prestige to urge all Americans, at once, to step back from the batllelines into which they are the report said. Whether the president can or will take the moral leadership the nine-member commission called for brought divided thoughts in a check of campuses and officials. Clark Kcrr, former president of the University of California and now chairman of the Carne- gie Commission on Higher Edu- cation said: "I think it's easily the best report on the subject that's been made. NEED ENDED In addition to the need1 for a greater presidential moral and leadership role, the commission made these findings: is more important than an end to the war in Indo- china." persons engaging in student violence should be quickly removed from Uie cam- pus and prosecuted. members who en- courage violence by students and other young people should be removed. can be no tolerance of abuse of .power by authority. many law enforce- ment officers have responded1 w i t h unwarranted harshness and force in seeking to control disorder.. The commission report said continuing polarization between youth and the more orthodox elements of society can lead only to more campus violence. To head this off, the commis- sion said in conclusion, there must be a move toward ending the Vietnam war, toward racial and social equality and an eas- ing of the accusatory voices in the country. Football Fans Face Qiarges EDMONTON po- lice hi plainclothes were placed in the stands at Clarke Stadium Saturday during the Edmon. ton-Hamilton Canadian Foot- ball League game. The result, a police spokes, man said Monday, was the is- suing of 50 summonses, most of them for the illegal possession of alcohol. Three persons were arrested on what one senior officer said were "various offences" and while he would not elaborate, it was believed one incident in- volved bottle-throwing. The action was taken follow- ing recent complaints about rowdiness at Eskimo home games and the police spokes- man said the Liquor Control Act will "definitely be en. forced" during future games.

Mr. Lougheed was comment- ing in a prepared statement on statements made Friday by So- cial Development Minister Ray Speaker.

(CP) K. Hafe Mair, defence counsel for one of three Ontario youths charged with non-capital mur- der in 'the beating death of Vincenzo Zannella, 20 of Kam- loops, resigned from the case during the weekend.

He said he resigned formal- ly following a preliminarjy hearing 10 days ago which re- sulted in the defendants, being bound over f trial in the fall assizes which begin here Mon. day.
