Even their draft-dodgers are not pur- sued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them. unless they are breaking Canadian laws. are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here. When the railways of France. Ger- man and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned the, an old caboose. Both are still broke. I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earth- quake. Our neighbors have faced it alone, and l"m one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I - I hope Canada is not one of those " Stand proud. America! Hose nozzle causes scare at Chief Joseph A mysterious-looking object thai prompted Chief Joseph Dam offi- cials to summon the bomb squad Thursday night turned out to be a water hose nozzle. Security levels at the dam were increased following the terrorist attacks in the East last Tuesday; "I asked all my operatives to be diligent in their rounds:" said Ed Reynolds, the project engineer. One of the guys found--something. "'There was this object," leaning up against a transmission tower, he said. Standing on end. it resembled an armor-piercing artillery shell, he said. Project officials contacted the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, then the U.S. Army explosive ordinance disposal team based in Yakima. The bomb unit arrived at about 2 a.m Reynolds said. They pulled the object--on a long rope, due to the possibility of boqby traps---into a more secure area. Lying on its side, it was clear the thing was empty; "so at that point, it became "what is it?'" Upon inspection it turned out to be the nozzle from a high-pressure water hose. A subcontractor had been working at the site the previous week, Reynolds said. and apparently the hose had fallen off his truck. "Right now. we're at the highest security level," Reynolds said Monday morning. That was reviewed Monday afternoon, and reduced one level, but all the restrictions remain in place. All public access is prohibited" the boat launches and visitor center are closed, and barriers have been erected at all entrances.
