Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THI UTHUIDGi HtUUO Ajtll 1. Joseph Kraft Road To Vienna Arms Talks Difficult Uniform And The NFU It was a significant point in lieve that Unifarm will miss the boat, prairie history when the direct-mem- They are inclined to the National merged with the farm commodity and specialty-oriented Alberta Fed- eration of Agriculture to form Uni- farm. The rationalization is simple and in our opinion unassailable: the interests of the producer extend beyond his feedlot or granary. He cannot fight those who handle his product. He must, as far as possible, join them and manage them. The farm population, relative to the whole, is a declining fraction, and farmers cannot afford to withdraw into a paranoid conspiracy against the world, or a belligerent defence against an imagined conspiracy against them. Yet many fanners sincerely be- calls for socializing U companies, imposing tighter, controls on grain, increasing government sub-' sidies and the like. So there is a battle in rural Alberta today, between Unifarm and the NFU, which is moving into the province and trying to get establish- ed, its main demand on the govern- ment this week was "recognition." Recognition cannot be denied il it is deserved. If the NFU says what' otherwise would not be said, and says-it responsibly and with merit, it has no worries. If, on the other hand, it ignores the realities of the times and insists on irrelevant policies, all the "recognition" in the world won't help it. WASHINGTON At a meeting of the National Security Council recently Pres- ident Nixon began shaping up the final American petition for the next round of disarmament Uki with Russia. And already it U plain mat only the slim- mest possibilities exist lor the kind of American offer hkely to engage Moscow in produc- tive talks. For the to-called "building block" technique of Dr. Henry Kissinger has not achieved its advertised purpose of insulat- ing the President against con- flicting bureaucratic pressures. On the contrary, the Nixon ad- mimstratioe B now to much at and terra that the final potrtioc is more thin ever bound !o be prcdnct of The key to the arms negotia- tion, md to the Administra- tion's debate about it, is that irveral years from now and at did not work.

A successful negotia- tion is passible only X Uii. country a prepared to go to what the experts call Zero ABM that is, a scrapping of the pro- ject entirely. For if this country, an ABM, the Hussians will keep up their ABM and go on buiU- jog tbeir new offensive mis- sites, notably the SS-S. The Uni- ted Slates will then move to improve its offensive missiles through the device of MIRV, or multiple independently target- ed reentry vehicles. When that happens) both Russia and the United Stales win be condemn- ed to a new bunt of develop- ment in both offensive and de- fensive missiles. At worst, mat new arms race could end m disaster. At best, it could yield, a cost of billion of doUars to both Moscow and Washington, a new stalemate.
