Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August World welcomes new U.S. chief The ASSOCIATED PRESS World leaders welcomed Gerald Ford as the new presi- dent of the United States on Friday and expressed hope that American foreign policy will continue as it did under State Secretary Henry Kissinger. The resignation of Richard Nixon was seen with some re- gret, especially by those who saw the Nixon era as one of great progress in inter- national relations In Washington, a m bassadors of 59 countries were summoned to the White House where Kissinger assured them that American foreign policy will basically remain the same. Danish Prime Minister Poul Hartling summed up much of European reaction, saying he welcomes Nixon's resignation as a "great day for Anerica, a great day for but noting: "We watched these epoch-making developments with satisfac- Nixon group to pay WASHINGTON (AP) Former president Richard Nixon's re-election committee has agreed to pay the Democratic party to settle a damage suit, a spokesman for. the Democratic national com- mittee said Friday. The settlement is the final result of an exchange of damage suits by officials of the Committee for the Re- election of the President and the Democratic committee in the wake of the original Watergate break-in. Maurice Stans, once chair- man of the financial side of the Nixon re-election com- mittee, filed the first suit last September. accusing Democratic national com- mittee former chairman Lawrence O'Brien of "falsely and maliciously" committing criminal acts. e a good time t buddi (0 Bring this ad with you and receive a SUPER SUMMER SAVING CO CO 1 A07 OFF on 1974 trail 1U models 75cc to 350cc 1 C07 OFF on 1974 Street 13 70 models 400cc to 750cc FINANCING AVAILABLE OFFER ENDS AUG. 30 I LETHBRIDGE 13th ST. and HARDIEVILLE ROAD Ph. 327-6117 Tire stone STORES Corner 3rd Ave. and 8th St. S.

In the Middle East, both Arabs and Israelis expressed high regard for Nixon, whom they considered a friend and supporter. Egyptian new- spapers carried stories of his resignation under black banners, a usual sign of mour- ning. Israeli Defence Minister Shimon Peres called the change in government leadership a "victory for a free country." He said he ex- pects Washington to continue to "show sympathy" for Israel's security needs- needs he said Nixon under- stood. Arab diplomats said the resignation may slow, but will not seriously hamper, efforts to settle the Middle East crisis. The Soviet Union reported Nixon's resignation but emphasized Ford's pledge to continue his predecessor's foreign policy, including the search for a broadened detente that brought Nixon and Kissinger to Moscow only 46 days ago. Izvestia, the Soviet govern- ment newspaper, played down the change of American presi- dents, saying detente does not depend on personalities but on the long-range interests of both countries. NATO officials said private- ly they hope Ford will inject the coherence and decisiveness into the Atlantic alliance they said was lacking under a beleaguered Nixon. In the Far East, govern- ment leaders said they hope for and expect little change in American foreign policy. Pope sends good wishes VATICAN CITY (Reuter) Pope Paul sent a message of good wishes to Gerald Ford today following his swearing- in as president of the United States. The message said: "As you accede to the presi- dency of the United States of America, we assure you of our prayerful good wishes and we gladly invoke upon you and all the beloved American people an abundance of guiding and strengthening blessings." The message was the first Vatican reaction to the change of leadership in the United States. USE OUR CREDIT PLAN OR. OF GUARANTEED ALIGNMENT!

(CP) Hopes for an end to the im- passe between town offcials and Indians occupying Anicinabe Park were frustrated again Friday when the Indians charged that they were being harassed by police, and threatened to "shoot the first policeman that comes within range with a gun." By midnight the tension had died down again, although the sound of tom-toms emanated from a park clearing where a meeting was taking place. Police had stopped their fre- quent car patrols directly in front of the park. Louis Cameron, spokesman for the Indians who have occu- pied the park for nearly three weeks, confirmed that a truce had been agreed upon between his people and officials of this northwestern Ontario commu- nity, but added that the truce had already ended because of alleged "police harassment." The Indians are demanding clear title to the 14-acre park as well as serious considera- tion of a number of social reforms they hope would im- prove the condition of native people in the area. Subway Royal interest King Hussein of Jordan was briefed Friday on the workings of a United States Cobra attack helicopter at the Abbotsford, B.C. International Airshow. Chief Warrant Officer Bill Ince of Medford, Ore., gave the lecture. King Hussein plans Ford visit ABBOTSFORD, B.C. (CP) King Hussein of Jordan said Friday he is confident United States policy toward the Mid- dle East will not undergo any significant changes with Richard Nixon's resignation as the U.S. president. The 37-year-old monarch said he expects to meet Presi- dent Gerald Ford, next week in Washington "to talk about things of mutual interest related to our part of the world." King Hussein was the guest of honor at the opening of the Abbotsford air show and met with reporters for 15 minutes after watching a day of preci- sion flying and aerobatics. He sidestepped direct reference to the resignation, but said he had respected and admired Mr. Nixon since meeting him on his first visit to the U.S. during the Eisenhower administration. "I will always consider him a friend and be proud to do so." King Hussein said. The king indicated Canada's role as a peacemaker and peacekeeper may be a factor in preserving the uneasy truce. "Canada plays a construc- tive role, not only in the Mid- dle East." he said. "I'm sure Canada will rise to the challenge if the opportunity arises." King Hussein and Queen Alia, almost smothered by the security arrangements that greeted them upon arrival in Vancouver Thursday, were visibly relaxed while they mingled with some of the 000 people attending the air- show opening. The king said he was im- pressed by the day-long per- formance by aircraft past, present and near-future. He was introduced to many of the pilots and invited one, David Rahm. a geology professor at Western Washington State College in Bellingham, to Jordan in November. After opening the three day Airshow, the royal party flew here for a private dinner at government house. Lt.-Gov. Walter Owen and Mrs. Owen were the host. King Hussein and Queen Alia of Jordan were to leave Vancouver Island today, fly- ing to Seattle. Wash., where the king will test an million commercial jet. closed MONTREAL (CP) This city's subway system is to re- main closed this weekend fol- lowing a walkout by tran- sit workers and the Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission (MUCTC) says the system is expected to be idle at least until Tuesday. Lawrence Hanigan, who as- sumed his duties as MUCTC chairman and director- general Thursday, said Friday transit commission lawyers would present arguments in court Monday to prove a Quebec Superior Court injunc- tion ordering striking garage and maintenance workers back on the job had been violated.

FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL VANCOUVER The Indian community, whose chief threatened to blow up a hydroelectric project unless his people received free power, has succeeded in ob- taining a reduced rate.

Residential rates will drop to 2'z cents from four cents, and commercial rates to 4''2 cents from six cents a kilowatt hour. Water plan satisfactory RED DEER Mayor Ed Barrett says he is satisfied that the Alberta environment department's million plan to supply central Alberta towns with water from the Red Deer River will not affect his city's supply. Mr. Barrett, also chairman ol a public advisory com- mittee tor the environment department's proposed Red Deer River Dam, said Friday the amount ot water to be withdrawn will use only a tiny traction of the river's flow. The plan calls for piping water from above the city to serve the towns of Innisfail, Bowden. Olds, Didsbury, Car- stairs and Crossfield. Another pipeline will be used to supply the town of Airdrie, north of Calgary, using water from the Bow River. Nfld. mishap claims five HOLYROOD. Nfld. (CP) persons were killed early today and seven others were taken to hospital, some in serious condition, following a three-car crash on the TransCanada Highway near here.

Israelis sink rubber dinghy TEL AVIV (AP) The Is- raeli military command said today it had sunk an Arab guerrilla boat sailing to raid the northern coast of Israel near the border of Lebanon. Officers said an Israeli naval vessel patrolling the coast of Lebanon spotted a rubber dinghy heading south in the Mediterranean and blew it out ot the water after those aboard opened fire. Viet Cong shell airbase SAIGON (AP) Viet Cong forces shelled the Bien Hoa airbase today, the South Viet- namese military command said. Two civilians were killed and nine wounded, the com- mand said. Col. Vo Dong Giang, deputy chief of the Viet Cong delega- tion to the two-party Joint Military Commission, said the attack on the base 15 miles northeast of Saigon was in retaliation for two days of South Vietnamese air attacks launched from Bien Hoa. Meanwhile, the U.S. em- bassy in Saigon refused to con- firm or deny charges by the Viet Cong that the U.S. air- craft carrier Ranger had been sent into waters off South Vietnam's central coastal province of Binh Dinh "to in- limidate the population forces." A military source said the dinghy was carrying ex- plosives. Arab guerrillas used a rubber dinghy June 24 to at- tack the Israeli coastal resort of Nahariya, killing four Israelis before they were shot Idle ships 6a waste' VANCOUVER (CP) The president of the Employers' Council of British Columbia said Friday that 14 grain ships lying at anchor in English Bay represent a completely unpro- ductive expenditure of 000 a day which must be borne by shippers or shipping interests. Beth Johnson Says. Correct balance of calcium and phosphorus is essential in the human system so that both of these minerals can carry out their proper functions They are needed in the ratio of approximately two to one respectively Milk is the only animal protein food which comes close to this ratio Others are notably high in phosphorus and low in calcium, as shown by the accompanying table: 100 grams (aSt ''z cup) Calcium Phosphorus Beef 8 mg 85 mg. Chicken 14 mg. 148 mg. Halibut 14 mg 267 mg. Milk 118 mg 93 mg Brewers yeast, often eaten to enrich diets, is also high in phosphorus and low in calcium. The proportion of calcium to phosphorus. should be maintained in the diet if calcium is to be used ef- ficiently Loss of calcium causes some hormone systems to function poorly. As the above table shows, milk has a good calcium-phosphorus balance, and is recommended as the best available food source of calcium The Canada Food Guide recommends that growing children drink up to four cups of milk daily, adults following the same guide will drink to 2 cups of milk. A cup is understood to con- tain 8 ounces, and a measure of less than this shortchanges those who understand and follow the Canada Food Guide. Courtesy the Lethbridge Milk Foundation ;
