Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Wednesday, April 25, 1973 News in brief Police guard airport ST. GEORGES, Grenada (Reuter) Pearls airport was reopened under heavy police guard Tuesday after being closed for two days by demon- strators protesting a police kill- ing. Police Commissioner Mergyn Barrow said about 40 extra po- lice were posted at the airport to ensure that incidents such as the littering of the runway with obstacles on Sunday were not repeated. About 500 demonstrators forced the closure of the airport Sunday when they strewed bot- tles, stones oil drums and other objects on the runway.

OTTAWA (CP) Govern-! ment red tape and suspicion be- tween government and industry are hampering Canadian tech- nological innovation, says a study released today by the Sci- ence Council of Canada. The study also says the first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, and various Liberal governments are partly to blame for the present unhealthy state of the manufacturing in- dustry. Major recommendations in- clude: Co-ordination of federal and provincial incentive pro- grams; recognition of the value of small businesses; preference for domestic goods in govern- ment purchases: a second look a t controversial proposed amendments to labor and com- petition legislation. "By removing the dis- incentives to innovation that are built into the legal and regu- latory systems and into the economy generally, the need for new incentives may be reduced and even eliminated and the need for existing incentives mav also it says. NO DETAILS private enterprise. On the general relationship between government and in- WASHINGTON (AP) The White House says President Nixon has made "no decision at all" on whether to fire top aides as a result of the Watergate af- fair. Nixon spokesmen deny re- ports that State Secretary Wil- liam Rogers has been asked to head shakeup of the White House staff. They also deny that the president was in any way involved in a reported offer of executive clemency to con- spirators already convicted. The chief spokesman for the Nixon re-election drive, DeVan L-Shumway, said he was not told the whole truth at the time be was issuing blanket denials of knowledge of espionage plans. The New York Times, quoting sources close to the case, re- ported meanwhile that White House officials were regularly informed last May and June of the most significant political in- formation obtained through the illegal bugging of Democratic headquarters in the Watergate offices in Washington. The Times said it could not learn who processed the mate- rial at the Nixon camoaign committee nor to whom it was sent at the White House. The Washington Post re- ported, meanwhile, that the reward in Brinks theft mined by the apparently un- ceasing disparagement of the standards of skill and expertise dustry, the study says: "the j of Canadian manufacturing steadily increasing load of frus- trations and interventions ex- perienced by Canadian manu- managers in going about their business."

Both bills were in- troduced in the Commons last year, expired when the Com- mons dissolved, and have not yet teen reintroduced. The study recommends more purchases of Canadian goods by all governments and more ad- ca j i vanced warning of needs so that proper tenders could be pre- pared. Another recommendation of the study is co-ordination and division of responsibility among governments in aid to industry: "The federal government's fi- nancial assistance programs should be designed principally for whole industry sectors, for large projects, or for large companies. The provincial-local financial programs should deal with priorities within these ju- risdictions, but should specialize in the provision of assistance for sub-sectors, small projects and small companies." On the problem, of selling Ca- nadian products, the study notes that Canada is the only major exporter that is not a member of a trade the disintegrating Com- does rot have a large domestic market. "Canada will continue to he isolated unless it joins an exist- ing bloc or becomes part of a new one with, say, the United States." widespread SAINT JOHN, N.B. (CP) Two employees of Brinks Ex- press Co. of Canada Ltd., wanted in connection with the theft of from the com- pany's vault, have a price on their heads today. Newspaper ads throughout Canada today announced the company's offer of for information leading to their ap- prehension. Convictions are not a prerequisite for the reward. J. T.

It said was spent on a "deceptive, apparently illegal" advertisement in The New York Times rebutting that paper's editorial position. Tfie Post said that, although the half-page ad- vertisement Appeared to have been prepared and purchased by a non-political critizens' group, it actually was paid for with Nixon campaign funds. Stating the expenditures never were reported to the Gen- eral Accounting Office as re- quired by law, The Post said the campaign also included writing and paying for tele- grams of support sent to Nixon a? well for rallies and an or- ganized telephone campaign supporting the decision to mine North Vietnamese harbors. The Post said the expenses were authorized by Nixon's dep uty campaign manager, Jeb Stuart Magruder. It quoted an unnamed former Nixon cam- paign official as saying the committee for the re-election of the president was "totally mobi- lized for the biggest piece of de- never do anything honestly." "Imagine the president send- ing himself telegrams, patting himself on the Ths Post quoted the official as saying. DENIES STORY As the president flew back to Washington Tuesday night after a four-day Florida holiday, White House press secretary Ronald Ziegler told reporters that, although Nixon had con- ferred by telephone with Ro- gers, the two had not discussed Rogers possible leadership of an effort to revamp the White House staff. Ziegler declined further comment. ABC News bad reported (hat Nixon asked Rogers, a former attorney-general and longtime presidential friend, to restore an "impeccable integrity" to the White House staff. State de- partment sources also denied that report. Police squad to be hiked LONDON (CP) Scotland Yard's Flying Squad, known to the British underworld as "the heavy is to be doubled in size. At present comprising 108 po- lice officers and men, it will be joined by the same number of detectives from London's re- gional crime squad to spear- head the drive against violent crime in the city. The Flying Squad was nick- named "the heavy mob" not be- cause of the size of its police- men but due to its disconcerting technique of turning up in force, tipped off by an unrivalled net- work of informants, to catch criminals red-handed.

Police believe the money was taken from the company's vault in a south-end Saint John build- ing late Saturday. The theft was not confirmed until police and company officials were able to open the vault Monday after- noon. DELAYED ENTRY A police spokesman said the timing mechanism on the vault appeared to have been tam- pered with to prevent entry at the normal time Monday morn- ing. Downs had been a Brinks em- ployee for about four years and had access to the vault. Domi- ney was with the firm for the last ZVt years. Mr. Walsh said there was more than in the vault at the time of the theft but re- fused to give the specific amount.
