Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August Muskie says sea talks in doldrums CARACAS tReuter) It has taken United States Senator Edmund Muskie to spell out publicly that the United Nations Law of the Sea conference in Caracas seems to be heading nowhere Senator Muskie, took only four days recently in this oil- rich Venezuelan city of traf- fic-choked motorways to make his assessment. He found "disturbing possi- Appointment EDMONTON (CP) David Stolee has been appointed deputy minister of social ser- vices replacing Duncan Rogers, who is retiring after 19 years with the health and social development department Mr. Stolee. 35. moves from the position of assistant depu- ty minister of research and planning FRAME STYLES From AROUND-THE- WORLD bihties that the conference may not produce a (world sea law) treaty at and hit out at the obvious lack of urgency displayed by many of the 150 countries represented at the world's biggest-ever inter- national meeting. The Maine Democrat was echoing complaints and frustrations privately ex- pressed by many of the or more delegates who have been arguing and debating how to create a new global convention to regulate, ex- ploit, explore and share the earth's largest remaining wealth of the oceans. They end 10 weeks of dis- cussion on Aug 29. Unless there is a sudden change, there will be little or nothing to show for the millions of words and mountains of documents that have gushed forth since conference Presi- dent Shirley Amerasinghe of Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, tapped his gavel on June 20. The sheer size of the confer- ence, and the complexity and multiplicity of the problems confronting the delegates from every corner of the earth, precluded any possibili- ty that a new sea era would be born in Caracas.

The shape of things to come was apparent when delegates spent the entire opening week arguing in minute detail over rules of procedure. ENGULFED BY POLEMICS Policy statements by nearly 120 countries took the best part of three weeks. The initial ilood of polemics un- derscored the depth of bitterness and rivalry which such a vital problem as man's survival in a world of dwindl- ing resources has failed to lessen. Highly-placed conference sources confess deep dis- appointment that progress is "barely perceiptible." Many delegates from major maritime nations such as Can- ada, the United States, Britain, Japan, and from Western Europe confess wearily that there has been nothing concrete to show for weeks of discussion. "We have not even started one senior member of a Western delega- tion declared with unconceal- ed irritation. "If anything of real value emerges from Caracas it will be a near-miracle. We are go- ing around in circles. The best we can hope for is that we can go on to Vienna next spring and get down to some real work." y- Fresh complaints Chinese read wall posters in Peking.

Xerox of Canada Limited XEROX By JOHN BURNS Special to The Herald PEKING As if to demonstrate that the poster campaign against the local authorities has not collapsed entirely, one of the critics who launched the campaign seven weeks ago returned recently with a fresh elaboration of her grievances against the Peking Municipal Revolutionary Committee. The new protest, on eight sheets of green paper, con- tained little that was new but it did signal to passersby the protest movement has not gone to ground completely in the face of continual harass- ment by the authorities. In the early weeks of the campaign it was common for a dozen or more fresh protest sheets to appear daily. But a counter attack by the authorities ensued, with almost all the posters being ripped off the walls overnight, and only a handful of the most determined protesters per- sisted. Prominent among these has been Hu Shu fan, author of the latest poster. Together with Hsueh Pao jen, a fellow party member, she contributed one of the first at- tacks on the local authorities to go up after the poster cam- paign was launched on June 13 Between them the two women have accounted for a major share of what little fresh criticism of the Revolutionary Committee there has been since the destruction of the posters began in earnest three weeks ago. But each fresh contribution tends to harp on a familiar theme, the ouster from the committee of "mass repre- a term that re- fers to ordinary workers. In her latest sally, Hu concentrated on the plight of mass representatives on the revolutionary committee for the western district of Peking, who allegedly were purged from that body in much the same way as other mass representatives were remov- ed from the parent body that governs the whole city Hu recalled that the district committee was established with great fanfare during the 1966-69 cultural revolution but, she added, the committee's subsequent history had been a disgrace, with the masses' representatives being progressively forced out and sometimes subjected to "persecution" on trumped up political charges until the committee ceased to meet altogether. The Peking committee, in Hu's recounting, backed the district authorities by arguing that there was no hurry to reactivate the district body. This, said Hu, proved that they were in league with one another and that nothing short of intervention by higher authority could restore the proper functioning of the com- mittees, and with them the right of the masses to make themselves heard. Gillespie claims Ford presidency good for trade OTTAWA (CP) Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie said Friday that Gerald Ford's rise to the U.S. presidency could be good news for international trade. Mr. Gillespie said in an interview he has been study- ing Mr. Ford's voting record in the Congress. "Ford has moved from a po- Staying in Calgary? Stay with friends. Traditional Calgary hospitality starts with us. So the next time you're headed our way call Zenith 6-6014 from anywhere in Alberta for reservations. It's toll free. Or ask your travel agent to reserve a room. Isn't that friendly? Downtown. 9th Ave. and 1st St. next to the Calgary Tower. THE CP Hotels U sition of rather protective ten- dencies in the 1950s to more international, multilateral trading instincts." His move to the White House could enable long- awaited congressional action on the administration's trade reform bill, first introduced in April, 1973. Legislative inaction on the bill has held up international attempts to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in favor of lower trade barriers and more international business. The deadlock in Congress has resulted partly from the acrimony of the Watergate scandals, and partly from dis- agreements over former president Nixon's trade proposals. Mr. Gillespie also said President Ford appears to be a friend of Canada, backing up similar remarks by Prime Minister Trudeau last week. The minister noted that the Canada-U.S. auto cru- cial issue in the new president's home state of Michigan and a point of dis- pute with Washington in the is running in favor of the United States, with the auto trade surplus in their favor. Mr. Gillespie revealed he is making plans for a'trade mis- sion to of the European Economic Commu- press Canada's interest in a trade agreement with the EEC. The minister added that ex- port missions to other areas are in early preparation, including the rapidly-growing markets of South America, and the untapped potential of Indonesia, which in recent years has become a major client of Canadian foreign aid, with a population growing in numbers and wealth. Passenger ears pop high over Kimberley CALGARY Ten passengers and four crew members on an Air Canada DC-9 plane went to hospital for examinations Friday after the pressurizing system in the plane's cabin failed prior to landing at Calgary Inter- national Airport. An Air Canada spokesman said flight 206, carrying 64 passengers from Victoria to Calgary, suddenly lost pressure at an altitude of 000 feet over Kimberley in southeastern B.C. Passengers were given oxygen masks, but some complained about severe ear popping and gas pains. The 14 persons who went to the hospital were later released. Stoical Gray issues list of achievements OTTAWA (CP) A stoical Herb Gray responded to his abrupt dismissal from the Trudeau cabinet this week with a recitation of his achievements on the front benches. The list was long, running from the so-called "Gray Re- port" on foreign ownership, which led to new foreign in- vestment laws, to the anti- profiteering bill, a business corporations act, the begin- nings of a new competition policy and even better safety standards for hockey helmets, baby cribs and electric kettles. But cabinet watchers in Ot- tawa say Mr. Gray's record as consumer affairs and revenue minister could not compen- sate for his failure to make it as a top level contributor to over-all government policies. More than one minister has complained privately about Mr. Gray dithering away at cabinet over details of departmental ad- ministration, using up cabinet time on issues that he should have resolved on his own. TWO MORE DROPPED The same is being said, but to a lesser degree, about two others who were banished in Mr. Trudeau's cabinet Robert Stanbury, ousted from the revenue port- folio, and Stanley Haidasz, from multiculturalism. Two others who left, former works minister Jean-Eudes Dube and Senator Paul Mar- tin, former government leader in the Senate, were less than dynamic as cabinet members. But both had wanted out for some time, Mr. Dube to go to the Federal Court of Canada and Senator Martin to take up an impor- tant but still unspecified new appointment. Ministers say Mr. Trudeau wants people in his cabinet who can help chart the over- all economic and social course of his administration. Able managers of government departments are not good enough, they say. The prime minister also wants Liberal politicians across the land to get used to sudden, even jarring changes in his arrival of a new face from the backbenches or the departure of a veteran minister. CONTRIBUTION FIRST Mr. Trudeau is said to con- sider a minister's contribution to over-all policy to be much more important than the ac- tual portfolio he holds. To be a valuable cabinet member is not necessarily to be the one with the most prestigious job. Mr. Trudeau turns aside suggestions that Ron Basford has been demoted from the urban affairs to the revenue portfolio or that Andre Ouellett's move from postmaster-general to Mr. Gray's old job is a promotion. Indeed some of the ministers that Mr. Trudeau relies most heavily upon oc- cupy the less glamorous Marchand in transport, Don Jamieson in regional economic expansion and Mitchell Sharp newly- appointed as government House leader.
