Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE Hellish trip in Chile VANCOUVER (CP) Two machine-gun-cai 'T'ng guards forced Robert Everton into a police car in Santiago. Chile, beginning a hellish journey into political imprisonment for the Burnaby, B.C., man Mr. Everton, 23, says he spent 10 days and nights de- tained by Chile's new ruling military junta in a room about 20 feet'by 20 feet along with more than 100 other prisoners, until he and two other Cana- The University of Lethbrldge CONCERT SERIES A Recital by Malcolm Troup piano Guildhall School of Music London, England Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday, October p.m. TICKETS: Leisters' Music Limited Switchboard Operator, University of Leth.

His nightmare began in the afternoon of Sept. 16 when Chilean police picked him up on a street and brought him to a detention centre. After three hours of standing against a wall in a corner, an officer pointed a machine-gun at his head and said, "Let's go When he asked the officer in charge where they were tak- ing him, the officer replied, "To the cemetery."

FONTIAC-BUICK-GMC GM PARTS and SERVICE Effective MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st Split British Labor Party scents win LONDON (CP) Britain's chronically-divided Labor Party, scenting a possible election victory for the first time in three years, opens its annual convention Monday determined to keep the lid on peppery leftwing dissidents. Nevertheless, observers predict veteran party leader Harold Wilson will have his hands full trying to prevent the conference sliding into another bitter fight between moderates and radicals on the left. But the run-up to the meeting has been by far the most low-key since Labor was driven from office by the Tories in the 1970 general election. This time, the Socialists meet with the prospect of a new election either next year or early in 1975. There is also a new and much-discussed threat to Labor's flank from a revived and ambitious Liberal Party. LABOR HOLDS LEAD Wilson's best weapon in con- vincing the party to close ranks for an electoral battle, analysts believe, will be the results of recent opinion polls. These show Labor has a com- manding lead in popular sup- port over both the Tories and Liberals, with the Socialists holding roughly 40 per cent compared with 30 per cent each for the other two parties. Previously, Labor's standing had been fluctuating wildly, dipping at times to dismally- low levels. There were perpetual rumors of moves to dump Wilson from the leadership and reports of deepening dis- enchantment among rank- and-file party members. During the last six months, however, as the polls became more favorable and the government floundered in its attempts to curb inflation, the rumors died and Wilson now seems firmly back in control. Party strategists make no secret of their fears that this improved record might be shattered by a chaotic display of disunity at the Blackpoo> convention. If this happens they believe, many moderate Laborites may feel compeller to desert to the liberals. WANTS TO NATIONALIZE There are several major problems facing the party when discussions begin next week. Most controversial is a ringing demand from the left for a firm commitment that a future Labor government would immediately nationalize the top 25 privately-owned companies in Britain. To the party's moderates and right-wing elements, such a policy is abhorrent, primari- ly because it leaves no room to a future government for discrimination as to the most productive areas for nation- alization. They also believe it would frighten away many po- tential Labor supporters The left, however, has the backing of the powerful, 10- million-member Trades Union Congress on the issue and it will likely take all Wilson's re- nowned ability as a political tactician to avoid a showdown while refusing to endorse the program. British membership in the European Common Market, a bone of contention within Labor ranks for several years, will likely also be a subject for renewed debate this year. The majority of the party r HAROLD WILSON wants a pledge from Wilson to withdraw entirely from Europe if he wins the next election. Wilson, in turn, will say only that he will renegotiate the entry terms if he is elected and give the elec- torate a chance to register its opinion through a national referendum. But the most important de- bate, observers say, will centre on the inflation issue. Wilson must, they argue, produce a policy which is radical enough to hold the sup- port of the including millions of union will stop short of full-scale socialization of the economy. GEORGE HABASH, leader of the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Pales- tine, says the guerrilla or- ganization will not renew airliner hijacking in the fore- seeable future. changes in hours changes in pay Employees!
