Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Interpreting The Nixon Faces New Dilemma In Asia WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon, whose policy since election has been to withdraw the United States from an unpo- pular and costly conflict in Viet- nam, now is facing a dilemma over Cambodia. He must decide whether to cress a new com- mit the U.S. to an all-out def- ence of Cambodia, and thus probably spread war throughout Indochina, or to let the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong achieve victory mtr equipped Cambodian army. The eeormity of the decision was not evident in the presi- dent's recent televised speech in whici he. announced further trecp withdrawals' from Viet- nam and said: "We finally have in sight the just peace we are seeking." At that time the South Viet- namese army was pursuing The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LEXHBRIDGE! guerrilla forces ils bor- lers into Cambodia and attack- ng supply bases in that coun- try. The new Cambodian gov- inent which took over after he ouster six weeks ago of Mnce Norodom Sihaoouk was calling for help against forces near its capital. Washington authorized an in- lerim shipment of captured Viet Cong and North Vietnamese weapons to the Cambodians. Now, .with North Vietnamese Forces ranging almost at will through the southern panhandle area of the country and even within mortar striking distance of the capital at Pbnom Nixon cow is trying to decide how much more involvement to risk in Southeast Asia. That also was probably the topic at a weekend summit meeting at an unannounced site between the deposed Sihanouk and leaders of Norlr Vietnam, the Viet Cong and Communist Patbet Lao guerrillas' from Laos. Faw observers believe the aim of the insurgents in Cam- bodia is to take over the coun- try openly, because such action would be branded aggressive annexation and considerable forces would be needed to keep control of the eoiintrv. Instead, the observers be- Jeve, the aim is to reverse the damage done to their position by the overthrow of Sihanouk as cbM of state. A government that had yielded sanctuary to North Viet- namese trocps fighting in South Vietnam, as well as provided supply routes and food supplies, had been replaced by a leader- ship that had cut off supplies and pledged ilself to eliminate sanctuary for the North Viet- namese. The consensus is that the aim is to bring down the new gov- ernment of Premier Loo No) and replace it with a more sym- pathetic government, possibly Sihanouk. While some of Nixon's mill' ary advisers are urging him to seize the opportunity to smash torth Vietnamese and Viet Cong sanctuaries and possibly shorten the war, other strate- gists say domestic public opin- ion and the risk'of war through- out Southeast Asia would rule out U.S. troop commitments. State Secretary Rogers, in a New York speech condemning North Vietnam for violating in- ternational accords in invading Cambodia, called on other coun- tries to consider what counter- action'might be taken. It is not likely the inlerna tkmal community will respond and it will be up to Nixon U make one of the most crucu decisions he has yet faced in the Southeast Asian conflict.

Thomson, direc- tor of the Centre for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins Uni- in Washington, said Abortion Clinics Get Rich Since Law Liberalized LONDON (AP) The British government began cracking down today on private abortion clinics that have been getting rich since the abortion law -was liberalized in 1967. Social Service Minister Hich- ard Crossman said clinics no onger will be allowed lo solicit oreign patients at airports or to send women home prematurely they cancel attord postopera- tive care. Grossman also said govern- ment inspectors will check the links' medical equipment and lieir records to set whether bey are charging exorbitant ees. Grossman' renewed the Bc- ences of 46 private abortion clinics, but for three months in- stead of the usual year. He can- celled without explanation Ihe icence ot one London cUmc vhere as many as 20 abortions i day had been performed. The new regulations do not ipply lo public hospitals, which are supervised by the health ministry. The operation is free here for British women, but vailing lists are long. Patients have complained about poor treatment and lark of attention at some of the pri- vate clinics. Concern over such complaints and over the creasing number of abortions jertormed m Britain led to an attempt in Parliament last month to tighten [he abortion ItV, A bill to increase government supervision of abortion services was talked dov n in the House of Commons, although il had the backing of the British Medical Association and the Royal Col- lege of Obstetricians and Gyne- cologists.

Magazine Editor Calls It Quits TORONTO (CP) Peter Gzowski, editor of Maclean's magazine for .seven months Monday announced his resigna (ion over a disagreement will the Maclean-Hunter PubUshuij Co. Ltd. Mr. Gzowski, who succeeds Charles Templeton as editor last year, would not disclose the nature of Ihe disagreement bu said that it was made plain him that kin6 of Maclean' I believe in is not in charade or content the kind the owners believe in." Mr. Gzowski said his decision was not the result of the killing or censorship of any particular project, The differences between my- self and Maclean-Hunter are more general." He said he asked that his res- ignation take effect May 8. versity today. Mr. Thomson toM the Com- mons external affairs commit- tee many U.S. policy decisions concerning Canada DOW are taken at a much higher level than in Ihe past. issues as pollution con- trol, Arctic sovereignty and oil ft regulations can no longer be deadt with by civil servants at a lower level of the [dministrative pyramid." Mr. Thomson said that white some Canadians may Hod this ew situation flattering, be is ot sure that the change best serves Canada's national inter- si. "I believe Canada enjoys a greater chance of diploma lie uccess with the United States fostering a close and inti- mate reationshjp than by using confrontation ladies." OWER LEVEL BEST Ke said Canada's objective nuld be lo have as many Ca- nadian-US, problems u possi- fe dealt with before they reach igh pofcy-maJting levels since Canadian views tended to exert greater influence at lower linistrative levels. "In a very real sense tele- phone conversation between 'rime Minister Trudeau and 'resident Nixon can be less ira- ttrtanl than a luncheon meeting Delween two military or eco- nomic experts in Washington." Mr. Thomson also warned hat the Nixon administration does not have "the same feeling if warmth for Canada" as those jf Lyndon John Ken- nedy and Franklin Roosevelt. We now face a hard-think- ng, calculating administration led by a man who is a superb politician and a superl strate- Canada's external affairs de- lartment should make a much Beater effort to understand the implications of U.S. domestic wlitics on Canada-U.S. rela- ions. This was necessary be- cause American legislators tended to be more independent and were'influenced to a peater degree by local issues .bin their Canadian counter- parts. "The oil import controversy, for example, is not essentially a nutter of national policy to many U.S. legislators. For them mainly i question of wish- ing to protect oil interests in their constituencies." Mr. Thomson suggested full-time expert on U.S. domes- tic politics would be a valuable addition to the staff of the Cana- dian embassy in Washington. He also recommended that the external affairs committee take the initiative in arraigning greater degree of personal con- tact between Canadian and American legislators. Mr. Thomson said it is impor- tant for Canadians to recognize that Canada's views on matters of direct interest only to Canada and the United States are lis- tened to in Washington with much greater interest than are policy statements on other sub- jerts. "Canadian news on oil im- ports or Arctic sovereignly, for example, carry considerably greater weight in Washington than those on such questions as NATO or Nigeria."
