Mr. Stanfield said at a news conference it was "disappoint- ing Mr. Tnicleau should make a (our with no explanation why his government's policies aren't working." Mr. Trudeau "made a serious committment in 1968 and he should start to perform." The Progressive-Conservative leader said Mr. Trudeau is tak- ing Sam Slick, the legendary character of 19th century hu- morist Thomas Halihurton, "a little too seriously." Sam Slick, was a glib yankce trader from Connecticut who, according to Mr. Stanfield, ''believed he could sell anything lo Nova Sco- fians if he used some soft soap and solder." OVERLOOK FAILURES "Mr. Trudeau thinks if he ells us what nice people we are in Ihe Marilimes we'll overlook all his failures in removing eco nomic thn former Nova Scotia premier said. "He lliinks if he uses quite a hit oE soft soap the Maritimes will buy him. It won't work." The regional economic expan- sion program was criticized by Mr. Stanfield "for not doing what the goveinment said it do." He charged the pro- gram has not developed a co-or- dinated approach to attacking economic disparity. "It's important to get the economy moving at a decent clip if we are to have an atmos- phere where problems can be attacked." Ottawa's position Ibat 50 per cent of any offshoi e mineral rights should go to the federal government the remainder split among the provinces was labelled "an absurdity and great injustice" by Mr Stan- field. "The rights should go to the appropriate province. I don't be- lieve the other provinces expect to share in royalties from oil found off Nova Sr.otia." Secret ivar plan PARIS (Reulerl A loiTner Czechoslovak general is quoted in a French magazine as de- scribing secret Warsaw pact plans for possible war with the WesLj including a three-day dash to the Rhine by more than a million men. Once the German river was reached, missiles would be launched against the West and Russian troops would be in a position to lead an invasion of. France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and England, Gen. Jan Sejna is quoted as saying in an interview in Wash- ington with Paris-Match. Sejna (pronounced defected from Czechoslovakia in 1IXJ8. lie had been involved in an unsuccessful putsch to pre- vent Alexander Dubcek irons becoming parly leader. "The Rsnsians keep an up-to- date list of people to be arrested by their troops in Ger- many on the first day o[ he is quoted as saying. PLAN SWIFT 'TRIALS' Special military tribunals al- ready existed which would ac- company front-line Warsaw pact troops lo judge potential criminals" in the West. Tens of thousands of French- men bad been eannarkcd for such treatment. Sejna also is quoted as saying that Warsaw pact countries be- lieve if would be easier to para- lyse the economic and political life of NoitJi America lhan that of Western Europe. Communist agents could eas- ily obtain the nrms explo- sives they needed for sabotage in Canada and the United .Slates. "In Kuropo import controls are stricter and delays arc longer."
