Lynn Hackett, 23, sightless from birth, was ordered deported a year ago because she has epilepsy and thus was classed as a prohibited person under immigration regulations. In addition, she had failed to score the required points on her visa application to qualify for landed immigrant status. Several hundred Canadians, including Donald S. Macdonald, federal minister of energy and resources, peti- I Cave in l I I Two boys killed in tunnel I TORONTO (CP) "I couldn't do anything but . . . help dig them out," a North York man told police after he struggled to save two children who died Tuesday afternoon when a tree fell on them while they were tunnelling into a slope in northwest Toronto. Paul Benninger, an unemployed plumber, ran to the scene when playmates of Peter Charles Ingrey, 10, and John Bridgeman, 12, came to his apartment for help. Seven children were playing on the slope, tunnelling under the roots of a 50-foot tree. The other five mnaaged to run away before the tree fell across the tunnel opening. Police and firemen cut the tree to pieces and dug through two feet of rain-soaked mud before reaching the bodies. Firemen attempted resuscitation, but the children were pronounced dead on arrival at hospital. Mr. Benninger, whose wife caled police, said: "I tried to see the kids, but there was nothing but tree branches. I pulled the debris away, but I couldn't find them." Morocco sentences 11 to death for trying to assassinate king RABAT, Morocco (Renter) Eleven Moroccan air force men sentenced to death by a military tribunal Tues- B.C. minister decries frequency of strikes VANCOUVER (CP) Provincial Labor Minister Bill King told the annual British Columbia Federation of Labor convention Tuesday that he "decried" the frequency with which strikes occur in B.C. "Do not destroy the unique opportunity we have to make gains," Mr. King said. "Among the many problems that face you a hostile political climate is not one of them. I acknowledge your right to withhold labor, but I decry the frequency with which it is used." The New Democratic Party labor minister said he was not suggesting that strikes be eliminated completely, but "we certainly need more harmony in the province." day night for trying to assassinate King Hassan are expected to appeal, their lawyers said today. The court, sitting at Kenitra, north of Rabat, passed the death sentences on 6ix officers and five non-commissioned pilots at the end of a three-week trial in which 220 air force officers and men were accused of complicity in the assassination attempt The attempt was made Aug. 16, when fighters from Kenitra air base attacked the Boeing 727 airliner in which King Hassan was flying home from a visit to France. The 43-year-old king was unhurt and the bullet-riddled plane landed safely at Rabat airport But at least eight persons were killed and 47 wounded when other rebel fighters strafed the airport In addition to the 11 men sentenced to death by firing squad, 32 men were sentenced to prison terms of from three to 20 years. The remaining 177 accused, mostly ground staff at Kenitra, were acquitted. tioned Mr. Mackasey on Miss Hackett's behalf and Tuesday he announced she would be issued with a discretionary permit to remain in Canada for one year. Ironically, Sir. Mackasey's decision means the woman will have to leave the country temporarily since the per mit is only issued when the person crosses the border into Canada. Miss Hackett said Tuesday she in tended to cross the border today into the United States and return to Cana da on Thursday. Appeal rejected The blind woman had appealed the deportation order to the immigration appeal board and was turned down last Friday. Her lawyer, Maurice Green, had been preparing to carry the appeal to the Federal Court of Canada when Mr. Mackasey announced his decision. Miss Hackett first came to Canada on a visitor's visa in 1969. She returned twice more on visitor's visas, the last time in the spring of 1971 when she applied for immigrant status. As she went through the routine of her deportation hearing and later her appeal, she worked at times as a babysitter and housekeeper, sometimes stayed with friends, and for a two-week period in August received welfare support of $77.50. Mr. Green argued before the immigration appeal board that the Immigration Act prohibits persons who are afflicted with epilepsy, but he questioned application of the word "afflicted" to his client Her epilepsy is totally controlled through medication, he said. He said she failed to score the required 50 out of 100 points on her immigration visa application largely because of her education level and occupation status. Three weeks ago. Miss Hackett was hired to work in the customer rela tions department of a music recording firm in Bramalea. She travels to work from her Toronto apartment by bus with a guide dog.

Three-minute escape by 60 described . HAVANA (Reuter) More than 60 political prisoners who staged a mass break-out from a Bolivian is-iand jail said they had planned the operation for two weeks and completed it in three minutes. They were brought to Havana Monday by a special Cuban plane which picked them up at Lima, Peru, where they went after crossing the border. They told Cuban newsmen who met them at Havana airport that they took advantage of a soccer match to overpower their armed guards and take control of Coati Prison, which stands on a small island on Lake Titicaca, high in the Andes Mountains. The whole operation was completed in three minutes, they said. They then persuaded fishermen to take them ashore and walked for 13 hours to reach the Peruvian border town of Ryun-guyo, where they were fed and clothed. Sixty-seven were reported to have arrived in Havana. But they said four others had been recaptured. They told the airport press conference that torture was practiced at Coati Prison, and some showed scars to photographers while receiving a quick medical check. 7 NOW A BEgy wiimii ' . m w uM.t. in i mui .1 1111.
