Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, August 6, 1770 Stanfield Wants Commons Recall To Deal Wi By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) tive Leader Robert L. Stanfield Wednesday asked for the imme- diate recall ot Parliament to deal with unemployment and the continuing postal dispute. He told a news conference that the latest unemployment figures, showing a seasonally adjusted rate of 6.6 per cent, are "a matter of urgency." Un- less something is done immedi- ately, he said, the situation is Trudeau Warm Grain Farmers DAWSON CREEK, B.C. (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau told area grain farmers Wednesday they may seriously compro- mise their freedom of action with demands for more govern- ment assistance. "I think you may back your- selves into a hell of a lot of controls that will restrict your freedom of action, your Appeal Made To Hanoi PARIS (Reuters) David Bruce, new head of the U.S. del- egation to the Paris peace talks, urged Hanoi and the Viet Cong today to join in a quiet, busi- ness-like effort to find a negoti- ated settlement of the Vietnam war. In his first statement at the talks, the veteran American dip- lomat avoided polemics as he expressed his "earnest hope that discussions between our two sides will now enter a more productive phase." "Both sides need to examine each other's position realisti- Bruce said. Bruce said he believes that if the negotiators worked in the spirit of realism they could find the way to genuine negotiation. "I ask for your co-operation to this task and I offer you he said. After a relatively short meet- ing, 3Vz hours, the Hanoi dele- gate told reporters: "Nothing new. "We are still at a standstill. "The new chief of the Ameri- can delegation limited himself to old themes." Top Diplomat Given. New Post LONDON (Reuters) Peter Hayman, a senior career diplo- mat, will be Britain's new high commissioner to Canada, the foreign and Commonwealth off- ice announced today. Hayman, 56, will succeed Sir Colin Crowe, who was recently named as Britain's chief dele- gate to the United Nations. Haymaa is a deputy undersec- retary at the foreign and Com- monwealth office. During 1961- 1964, he was director of the British information services in New York. In 1964, he was ap- pointed minister and deputy commandant to the British mili- tary government in Berlin. HALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD. Gary Martir. Dispensing Optician 307 6fh St. S. 327-7152 S liberty; but you have to de- cide what you the prime minister said. Mr. Trudeau, on a week-long tour of northern communities, spent about two hours in an outdoor session with 25 grain growers on a farm just outside this city of Albin Pierce, regional co-or- dinator of the National Farm- ers Union, told Mr. Trudeau the government should estab- lish a national marketing board to control the movements of all grain in Canada. This would enable the gov- ernment to compile an inven- tory of Canadian grain and pro- vide farmers with realistic long-range market forecasts. It could be done by enlarging the present role of the Cana- dian wheat board, Mr. Pierce said. He said grain growers are being forced to compete in world markets with growers from other countries where farm surpluses are exceptional- ly high. The Canadian government must be prepared to increase subsidies to grain growers sub- stantially, he said. Mr. Trudeau said it was un- fair if Canadian farmers had to compete "with the treasuries of other countries." But, "if world markets con- tinue to shrink and we con- tinue to have a shrinking part of them, someone's going to have to he said. CP Coal Train Unit Derailed EEVELSTOKE, B.C. (CP) Nine cars of a unit coal train were derailed Wednesday eight miles west of this eastern British Columbia community, ripping up 500 feet of the Ca- nadian Pacific main line. A CPE spokesman said there were no injuries. The coal, from fields in southeastern B.C., was bound for the Roberts Bank docks south of Vancouver. The railway spokesman said a temporary spur around the damaged track would be built. Meantime, CPR passengers wouid be airlifted between Cal- gary and Vancouver. He said five of the derailed cars were upright and the other four on their sides. likely lo be "grim" when winter sets in. Mr. Stanfield said he was shocked when lie returned from Europe last week and found that the postal dispute was "still dragging on and getting more seerious." He doubted whether Parlia- ment should have recessed for the summer without seeing the postal dispute settled. Now there is "vc'.y little evidence of real bargaining." NEED NEW EFFORT Mr. Stanfield said he would not recommend that Parliament legislate to end the postal dis- pute because this would be a se- rious step that would terminate collective bargaining. The gov- ernment should seriously try to settle the dispute. "There is evidently a very strong streak of stubbornness here "While I am not. suggesting all the faults are on one sidee, ther'e should be some fresh initi- atives." If Parliament were recalled to discuss the unemployment situ- ation, he said, the Conservatives would not be lacking in ideas. He said that deferred works programs could be started, and credit could be eased "in a selective way." It wouldn't be easy to devise measures that would have an immediate effect and this was why Parliament should be re- called without d.elay. On oilier subjects, Mr. Stan- field said Prime Minister Tru- deau made "highly irresponsi- ble" statements at Dawson Creek, B.C., when he said drugs may not be much different from alcohol and olhcr intoxicants. While the prime minister had made it clear he was not en- couraging the use of dfugs, he said the comments would none- theless make it more difficul for judges to administer exist- ing laws. Mr. Stanfield said he didn't think a recommendation by the Commons external affairs com- 51 per cent of Ca- nadian industry be owned by b e acceptec across Canada. He said it would be better to deal with the question of foreign ownership on the basis of par- ticular industries or particular sectors of the economy. General application of such a principle would slow development in cer- tain regions of the country. Mr. Stanfield said he has never felt that the six-peij-cent wage guide suggested by the prices and incomes commission was sanctified in any way. "Ex- ceptions to the guidelines have not been exceptions but the rule." lecall Request Koreans Stay SEOUL (AP) President Chung Hee Park promised South Vietnamese Premier Tran Thien Kliiem Wednesday that South Korea will keep its force in Vietnam until the war ends. Khiem who is on a four-day visit to Premier Chung Il-kwon, paid a courtesy call on Park.

Special PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) P r i m e Minister Tru- deau said Wedneday he has no intention of responding to a call by Opposition Leader Rob- ert Stanfield for an immediate recall of Parliament to discuss the postal dispute. Mr. Trudeau added that the postal situation has reached a stage "where it is not tolerable much longer." He told a small news confer- nece in this central British Co- lumbia city that Mr. Stanfield's suggestion, made in Ottawa earlier Wednesday, did not make sense. "There is nothing more lo discuss. We have discussed the 3ostal situation many times in Parh'ament. You don't call Par- liament back just because someone says boo. "If he's got concrete sugges- tions, let's hear them." Mr. Trudeau said if Mr. Stanfield "just wants to make a speech" he should make it out- side of the House. Mr. Tradeau said that "be- 'ore long" the system of rotat- ing strikes by postal workers and the closing of regional of- fices in response by the federal government "must lead to ei- ther a full-scale strike, a shut- down of the postal service or legislation forcing postal em- ployees back to work." "I am aware that we-face a long-term crisis of confidence in the ability of the government to deliver the mail we're very aware of it and we will deliver it. "Hell, if the government can't see to it that the mail is de- livered, let's stop talking about Tclestat and things like Mr. Trudeau said he would not exclude altogether the pos- sibility of recalling parliament but emphasized that he was contemplating it. He did not comment on Mr. Stanfield's description of Ihe national unemployment rate of 6.6 per cent as "a matter of urgency." The prime minister indicated ihut the government had made a slightly new offer to Ihe post- al workers within the last week. The government had been acting recently to bring the situation "to a he said. Mr. Trudeau, in the middle of a week-long northern tour, also said "there might ofJ might not be" cabinet changes before the Commons resumes in October. He said reports of imminent cabinet shuffles were inaccur- ate and grossly exaggerated. Raises rices DETROIT (AP) Ford Motor Co. is increasing new caf wholesale prices to dealers by five per a 1971 models which go on sale Sept. 11 and 18. A company spokesman said Wednesday it was impossible to say what the price boost, if any, may be on the retail level. Ford is the first U.S. auto- maker to announce an increase in prices for 1971, although such increases have been expected as auto-makers find themselves squeezed between rising costs and sagging sales. Many industry, observers be- lieve there will be a second round of price increases if con- tract negotiations between the auto-makers and the United Auto workers union now in progress result in substantial wage increases. Ford also announced Wednes- day that it is discontinuing its optional five-year warranty on drivetrain components (engine, drive shaft, differential and rear The warranty, at one time standard, was reduced to a option in 1970 models. The 12-month, mile warranty on all compo- nents continues. At Ottawa, the prices and in- comes commission said it will investigate a threc-per-cent es- timated price increase.

Calgarian Plans To Appeal Home Expropriation Order CALGARY (CP) Wilmot Baldwin, whose old, two-storey louse is hampering construc- ion of a YWCA building, said Wednesday he plans to appeal to federal and provincial gov- ernments to preserve his hime "rom construction crews. Mr. Baldwin, 69, said city construction crews have al- ready moved onto his property, 'digging a hole under the louse and pouring cement into t." The house was expropriated for the urban renewal project earlier this year, but Mr. Bald- vin refuses to move until suit- able accommodation is found. He said he talked with offi- cials from Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation Wednesday and is to meet hem today to arrange talks Taw Made For Derby Sweepstakes EDMONTON (CP) Edwin Oswald of Edmonton, a 40- year-old construction superin- endent, was the first ticket- holder whose name was drawn Wednesday in a sweep- stakes to be held Saturday in conjunction with the Canadian Derby at Northlands Park. The sweepstakes, sponsored by the Edmonton Exhibition Association, is the first in Al- berta since the Criminal Code was amended and since the at- torney-g e n e r a 1's department granted licences in the prov- ince. A second sweep- stakes is to be held in con- junction with the Stampede Futurity Stake Sept. 6, in Cal- gary. with provincial representa fives. The provincial and fed era! governments are partners with the city in the renewa project. Mr. Baldwin said he decide< to appeal to federal and pro- vincial agencies "because simply cannot afford to go b court at this point." "But if I don't get any sa tisfaction, I will review the matter of action I will bi forced to take." Mr. Baldwin met city off! cials Tuesday but no agree ment could be reached am they suggested he talk with thi senior partners in the project The public utilities board has set the price of the property a plus interest but Mr Baldwin said it is worth He says he will take the board's price if he gets another house at a low rent.

Finally, after covering Ihe i greater part of a i mile search area, he found half a dozen big Soviet trav.icrs in international waters off Cape Bcale, Vancouver Island.

Ottawa has protested to the Soviet Union. At CFB Comox before the flight, Mr. Davis said Hie Rus- sians have been moving slowly south, apparently in pursuit of fish. "In wiiat one might loosely call waters off Canada there are only about half a dozen. Another six are in a position from which (hey can move into this area within an hour or' two." Earlier, after spending a night on a Canadian trawler off (lie west coast of the island, Mr. Davis said he's willing to meet f i s h e r in e n lo discuss their claims of harassm.ent. They could meet him and Prime Minister Trudeau this weekend at Ocean Falls, B.C. but Mr. Davis said he's pre- pared lo go ta Vancouver Island as requested by some fisher- men. Meanwhile, he said, he hopes proposed talks with Russia on Soviet use of Canadian ports will include all fishing prob- lems. The Soviet Union has asked for talks, seeking entry to west coast ports for supplies and the right to come into Canadian wa- ters to "load material from ship to ship." He said the U.S. has made deals along these lines, in re- turn for" understandings that So- viet boats "will not fish certain areas at certain times." Reciprocal concessions could be made, he said, but "person- ally I'm in no mood to give any concessions." He said the Sovi- eis "have just been unreasona- ble." Mr. Davis said he (lots not think there is any connection between brushing of Canadian j vessels by Soviet boats and Moscow's unhappiness about being unable to use Canadian ports.

(AP) Def- ence lawyers, satisfied they have laid the groundwork for a possible future appeal in the Sharon Tate murder case, say they are abandoning their quest for a mistrial based on com- ments by President Nixon. Three times the lawyers asked that the trial be called off following President N i x o n 's comment in Denver, later he be- lieved one of the four defend- ants, Charles Manson, guilty. Three times Superior Court Judge Charles Older has denied the motion. "This will be one of the big- gest cases in history regarding prejudicial com- mented co-prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi during a break in Wednesday's proceedings1. Highlights: plea by Charles Kanarek, counsel for Manson, 35, that president Nixon be asked to take the witness stand in the case so that the defence might learn his motives in taking up publicly the Manson trial. The motion was denied. plea by Paul Fitzgerald, counsel for Patricia Krenwin- kel, 22, for a mistrial on grounds the jury was unduly in- fluenced Tuesday when Manson brandished a newspaper head- line in court reading: "Manson Guilty, Nixon Declares." Judge Older, in ruling against the mo- tion, said he was certain the jury could still "render a fair and impartial verdict." three women co- defendants arising when the jury returned to the courtroom to chant in unison: "President Nixon says we're guilty, so why go on with the trial." On trial with Manson. and Vliss Krenwinkel are Susan At- dns, 21, and Leslie Van Houten, 20. Bugliosi told reporters that should the four defendants be convicted on charges of murder and conspiracy in last August's slayings of actress Sharon Tate and six others: "I'm sure on ap- peal, this is going to be an im- sortant case on pretrial as well as intrial publicity." :If these defendants are con- victed there will be numerous points to be raised In Fitzgerald said. Testimony Wednesday centred on the credibility of the state's chief witness, Linda Kasabian, who resumed1 the witness stand for cross-examination. One line of questioning dealt with Mrs. Kasabian's experi- ence with the drug LSD, with the defence contending her use of it may have clouded her memory of the slayings. The other line of questioning focussed on Mrs. Kasabian's testimony in a child custody in which the defence says Mrs. Kasabian lied1 to get her daughter back from a foster home. Mrs. Kasahian said that after Miss Tate and the others were killed she fled the Manson clan's compound at the Spahn movie ranch, leaving her daugh- ter Tanya, then IVz, with tbs hippie-style "family."
