Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, Soplombor 29, 1970 diiSes Mar urning JERUSALEM (Reuters) Is-1 raeli troops opened fire in the I Gaza Slrip loday while police I supported by water cannon j made repeated billy club charges in Jerusalem to dis- perse stone-throwing demon- strators during mass mourning processions for President Nas- ser. One 57-year-old Arab woman was shot and wounded in the A-Shati refugee camp in the Gaza Strip when troops opened fire after demonstrators built barricades, hurled stones and refused to disperse. The Jerusalem clashes oc- curred near the Herod pate leading into the old walled city. About 600 demonstrators started throwing stones at Israeli police and border police patrols. Some 30 demonstrators were no injuries were reported. MOUKNEKS CONVEUGE The demonstrators wero part of a much larger procession of mourners who converged on the centre of the lioly city behind black banners and portraits of President Nasser, chanting "Nasser will not die." As they moved slowly down Salah-A-Din Street, the main thoroughfare in the former Jor- danian sector of the city, a part of the crowd became rowdy, po- lice source said. Army reinforcements stood by but did not intervene. Col. David Hagoel, the mili- tary commander of Jerusalem, told reporters: "So long as it is a mourning procession it is all right, but when it starts to be a carnival and stones are thrown, we disperse them." There was a complete stand- still in all the Gaza Strip towns, Israeli sources said. Israeli mil- itary reinforcements were tion'cd on the streets to prevent incidents.

HALE OPTICAL Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 307 ifh St. S. 327-7152 CALGARY (CP) Sunny, warm weather will allow most Alberta farmers to return to the harvest by mid-week fol- lowing rain and snow last week across most of the province, the Alberta Wheat Pool said here. The pool, in its weekly crop report, said poor weather de- layed the harvest, particularly in northern and central areas. However, fall seeding progress- ed rapidly in southern areas and should be completed by the end of the month. A continuation of good weath- er should see substantial gains in threshing with wheat 72 per cent completed, oats 76 per cent, barley 83 per cent, flax 70 per cent, rye 99 per cent, and rapeseed 80 per cent. With more of the crop thrash- ed, the pool said more accurate yeild estimates were available with gains showing in wheat, oats, rye and rapeseed while yields in barley and flax show- ed a minor decrease. Yields now expected are: wheat 27.2 bushels an acre; oats 53 bushels; barley 40.2; flax 15.7 and rapeseed 18.8. Military Force Urged Against Soviet Threat WASHINGTON (AP) L.

"We cannot live with the new Soviet threat at our the South Carolina Democrat told the House Monday. In the Senate, Senator Frank Church (Dem. Idaho) said his foreign relations subcommittee on Western Hemisphere affairs will hold hearings on the re- ported base.

Arab workers did not show u] at jobs in Israel and the Jerusa- lem Moslem Council was re- ported to have asked Israeli au- thorities for permission to sent a delegation to Nasser's funeral Several Israeli papers today reported Israeli troops took pre- cautionary steps along the Suez canal when news of Nasser's death was known. The mass circulation Maariv said the steps were directcc more against individual initia- tives by Egyptian troops than against surprise attacks across the canal. Government Intervention Predicted TORONTO CP) David Archer, president of the Ontario Federation of Labor, said today he expects that government in- tervention in collective bargain- ing will increase because the government cannot afforc strikes or work stoppages. Speaking at the annual meet- ing of the Canadian Electrical Manufacturers Association, Mr. Archer -said strikes draw "end- less criticism from the opposi- tion parties and the wrath of the voting public." No modern government can allow strikes without trying to end them quickly, he told dele- gates to the meeting. Recent amendments to the Ontario Labor Relations Act and the Employment Standards Act are cases in point, he said. J. Hugh Stevens, president of Canada Wire and Cable Co. of Toronto, was elected president of the association.

Don Hartman said a citizen complained about the animals' affairs, which oc- curred in full view of his liv- ing-room window. Exchange Gifts VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul gave President Nixon a ce- ramic statue of the baptism of St. John at their, meeting Mon- day and the president gave the Pope a photograph of his family and a leather-bound appoint- ment book. Aid. Hartman presented color photos of the problem at the last council meeting and was not amused Monday when other alderman treated the problem lightly. "Keep showing your igno- rance fellows. Tin's is seri- ous." The head of the parks de- partment assured council the situation was being handled and that "less affectionate deer" would replace the ze- bras. Aid. Roy Farran suggested the matter be taken to the public inquiry which recon- venes today into possible mis- management of civic affairs.

English Teachers Asked To Resign TORONTO (CP) An Eng- lish professor at Ottawa's Carle- ton University has called for the resignation of the heads of Eng- lish departments in three Cana. dian universities and for a fed- eral moratorium on the hiring of non-Canadian faculty by Ca- nadian universities. Prof. Robin Malhews made lite demands in a report he re- leased last week as chairman of a subcommittee of the Montreal committee on the de-Canadiani- zation of universities. He called for the resignations of Prof. Millar MacLure, chair- man of the graduate depart- ment of English at the Univer- sity of Toronto, Prof. Donald Theall, head of English at Mc- Gill University in Montreal, and Prof. Robert Jordan, head of English at the University of British Columbia. Prof. Mathews said the gradu. ate department of English, Uni- versity of Toronto, is an "in- sult" to Canada and that only one of (he 106 courses offered by the department covers Cana- dian literature.

Lauch- lan told the board the college was trying to reduce the rate to 20 per cent by offering courses not avialable else- where.

The Canadian Press, erro- neously reported in a Toronto story Sept. 25 that Prof. Malhews called for the resigna- tion of the chairman of the Eng- lish department at Carleton Uni- versity and had termed the English department there an "insult." Vessel Records First OTTAWA (CP) Some ice ahead for the Canadian scientific survey ship Hudson, but behind lies the first transit of the Northwest Passage by a scientific vessel. A spokesman for the depart- ment of energy, mines and re- sources said today that the Hudson .left Prince of Wales S'trait some time late Sunday or early Monday. There is some question about just what constitutes the North- west Passage, the spokesman said, but it extends somewhat beyond Prince of Wales Strait. 'I think it's safe to say the Hudson is through the North- west the spokesman said. 'Judgment here is that all she faces through the rest of the trip are normal sea hazards. "I gather there's still some ice conditions to worry about, but nothing unusual." When the Hudson arrives at Halifax Oct. 15, she wilt have another first to record: the only circumnavigation of the Ameri- cas. The ship left Dartmouth, N.S., last November. The spokesman said the scien- tists on board "learned a great deal" about the eastern conti- nental shelf of North America and the waters flowing through Drake Strait at the southern tip of South America. The Hudson, built to with- stand ice conditions, tackled the Arctic at one of its most benign times when the ice presents the least difficulty.
