The Caunda-U.S. Auto pact was initially designed by Ijotli countries to develop and protect this na- tion's bunding aulo industry. Now the pact is one of the things tlie U.S. wants wiped out. The L'.S claims that Canadians have been sell- ing more to thai country than buying. but lliey don't remember those years and years and years where Canadians were Ihe onej suffering from a deficit balance of payments. Only because the U.S. has chanclled a good pro- portion of industrial output to delay defeat in Vietnam is the reason they are now suffering a bal- ance of payments problem. If that undeclared war were hy what- ever method seen the U.S. could resume direct- ing its output towards its public and the trading world. The U.S. pretends lo protect us from the strangle- hold ol communism by fighting in Vietnam. Originally the Viet the National Liberation was a non communist nationalistic group seeking Vietnam re-union of the entire tiny South- east Asian nation. When the U.S. bomb, gun ships, tanks and advisors began attacking them wilh soph- isticated weapons only then, did the Viet Cong seek Communist help just to fight back and stay alive. So to heck with any special trade concessions anil agreements witli the U.S. or the other Vietnam atrociiy parlners, Russia and China. If they all shook hands and sort of said let by- gones be bygones, only then could we have world peace, because the world can easily survive with peaceful political haggling. Tli c ti we could make trade concessions with ev- eryone because everyone would be guaranteed a healthy standard of living by virtue of industrial output for people, not for war. The foothills region of south- em Alberta could have up lo six inches of moisture on dry grassland following tlie 21-inch sno'.vfall last week. A check of water equivalent tests at tlie Lethbridge Research Station showed sbt inches of snow resulted in one inch of water. Similar tests by the hy- drology branch of the depart- ment of the environment show- ed a water eqiiivalenl of seven inches of snow for one inch of water. Glen Steed, head of the hy- drology branch, said the snow pack in the foothills is much heavier Mian that of the open land on the Prairies, where up to three or four inches of rnois- lure will be recorded when tho snow melts. He said due to the cooler weather, the department is not looking for a rapid rate of melt- ing. so most of the moisture will soak into the ground. He f.aid that any otlicr mois- ture (hat falls on southern Al- berta after tlie melting process will likely be instant surface runoff because the ground have reached the water satura- tion point. Early spring rains will nol; soak into tho ground and they I will bnild quickly to add to Lho river system runoff.
