Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian envoy critical of multilateral meetings Traveller shaken by sudden TV fire By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Canada's ambassador to Washington took issue today with the American tradition of pursuing changes in international law through multilateral conferences, saying the vital needs of a nation's citizens cannot be "held hostage" to such slow- moving procedures. Ambassador Marcel Cadieux said that the U.S., with worldwide interests to protect, "has cast a somewhat jaundiced eye towards unilateral efforts at in- ternational law-making." But for Canada, the hazards of going it in the case of the 1970 law against pollution of Arctic waters, which brought U.S. more than offset by the advantages gained from rapid response to avoid disorder, Cadieux said. "If I sound too much of a champion of unilateral action, it is because I long ago came to realize that the wprld does not stand still, serious problems seldom disappear and a democratic government must be responsive to the needs of its people." The ambassador's remarks came at the opening of a three-day conference devoted to examining American relations with Canada and Mexico. The conference is being ,sponsored by the member American Society of International Law, a professional and scholarly organization. Cadieux is one of the society's foreign members and one of more than 20 government and academic figures from Canada taking part in conference discussions and debates. A scheduled appearance to- day by Energy Minister Donald Macdonald was cancelled because of pressing business in Ottawa. The Canadian lineup included Progressive Conservative MPs John Fraser and Gordon Fair- weather, former finance minister Walter Gordon, drugs expert Gerald Le Dain, as well as senior civil servants and university professors from across Canada. Macdonald's speech is to be delivered in his absence by deputy minister Jack Austin. Cadieux, one of a series of speakers discussing "the perils of said Canada accepts the U.S. preference for international treaties and conferences while believing that some issues demand quick provisional measures. "Consultation, compromise, conferences and consensus are he said. "But in a rapidly changing world of challenge and frustration, responsible leadership cannot permit the vital requirements of its citizens to be held hostage to the eventuality of a slowly evolving accord "Sovereignty, after all, is still the single most fundamental principle pertaining to the law of nations." The sessions include dis- cussions of the role of in- vestment capital abroad, U.S.Canadian energy policies, trade and the barriers to trade, and "cultural imperialism." WASHINGTON (AP) A California archeitect has told a United States safety panel Wednesday how he excaped death by seconds when a television caught fire in his motel room this year. Jasper Hawkins of Los Angeles said he was so frightened by the experience that he now carries a smoke detector wherever he goes and immediately unplugs the TV set when he checks into a hotel or motel room. "They estimated that 30 seconds more and I wouldn't have made he told the U.S. consumer product safety commission at the second day of hearings into TV fire, shock and explosion hazards. Hawkins, who said he travels miles a year, related how he turned on the television about 1 a.m. Jan. 10 and then fell asleep in his Orlando, Fla., room. He said he awoke three hours later to find the plastic set engulfed in flames and the room filled with thick, choking smoke. "There was no sensation of heat in the Hawkins said. "It was strictly a problem of toxic gases." Hawkins said he learned later that there had been 18 TV fires in the same motel, including one which burned out a room, but no injuries. One expert said that unless an owner has, a dry-chemical fire extinguisher the safest thing to do in the event of a TV fire is to 'pull the plug if possible, call the fire department and "leave the house quickly." He said pouring water on a blazing television set could result in fatal electric shock. The safety commission, which has announced intentions to write mandatory TV safety standards, estimates there are about TV-related fires in the U.S. each year. Television manufacturers say the number of TV-caused fires they are aware of are "in terms of hundreds annually."

The entire day was set aside for Peter Fleming, lawyer for former attorney-general Mit- chell, and John Wing, who led the government prosecution, to sum up'their cases. Tuesday, the lawyer for co- defendant Stans spent his al- loted 4Vz hours portraying Stans as an honest, innocent man and attacking government charges that the one-time commerce secretary had anything to do with hindering a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation of financier Rob- ert Vesco. Mitchell and Stans are ac- cused of conspiracy, perjury and obstruction of justice. The government says the two men, who left the cabinet to run President Nixon's 1972 re election campaign, accepted i secret cash campaigr contribution from Vesco or the promise of impeding the SEC fraud probe.
