Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, August 14, 1970 Russia, U.S. End Talks On Limitation Of Arms VIENNA (Reuters) After 32 secret sessions, the second round of the strategic arms lim- i t a t i o n s talks between the States and Russia ended today and the Russians an- nounced that the third round of discussions will resume in Hel- sinki, Finland, Nov. 2. Tlie site and date of the next stage in (lie talks were an- nounced by chief Soviet negotia- tor Vladimir Senjenov at the last formal session of the Vi- enna talks. Semenov said his government would pursue negotiations to ob- tain agreement on curbing nu- ciear missiles. Semenov, speaking at the for- mal closing cer.emony in Vien- na's Belvedere Palace, said ne- gotiations with the Americans in Vienna had taken place in a quiet, businesslike and cordial atmosphere. During the four months of talks in Vienna "not unimpor- tant" and useful work had been done, he said. It would be wrong to ignore tlie complicated nature of the main theme under curbs on the global missile race it also would be wrong to underestimate the difficulties which lay ahead, he said. But the Soviet Union is deter- mined to continue the negotia- tions in order to achieve the necessary results, the Soviet delegate said. "Naturally, this will call for efforts on both sides." The Soviet Union attaches high significance to the task of reaching an accord with the United States because this would have an important influ- ence not only on Washington- Moscow relations but on tlw strengthening of peace and se- curity on the international level Semenov stressed. Gerard Smith, chief American npg'Miatcr, in a brief statement said "I believe that both sides Can agreu that important prog- res.; has been made." "The work we have done here in Vienn-i should provide a sound basis for the next phase of our talks starting on Nov. 2 in h- added. Smil1: said an agreement be- tween the two powers on missile curbs would enhance interna- tional security by maintaining a stable strategic relationship be- tween them. Limiting strategic arms should assist in reducing the tensions and uncertainties which exist in the world today, he noted The Soviet and American chief negotiators this morning signed a joint communique reg- istering their common aim lo pursue talks toward agreement. Work Of Sculptor JL Finally Displayed Bank Robber Interrupted ST. ALBERT (CP) Police interrupted a bank robbery here just as a clerk at a Bank of Montreal branch stacked bundles of money in front of a man carrying a toy pistol. Unknown to the would-be rob- ber a clerk had pushed a si- lent alarm button, which alerts police but does not ring in the bank. Earl Morgan Travers, 33, of no fixed address, was charged with attempted armed robbery. HALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD. Gary Martiit Dispensing Optician 307 6th St. S. 327-715? By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) Truth and Justice were finally to be put on public display in Ottawa today 50 years and aboul 24 hours late. Heroic bronze sculptures of the allegorical figures by the late Walter S. Allward were to have been erected in front of the Supreme Court building Thursday. But .i series of mishaps and errors delayed completion of the project until today. First a truck bearing 21 tons of white Stanstead granite from near Sherbrooke, Que., broke down en route and had to be towed into Ottawa. Then holes drilled in the granite pedeslal lo take the anchor bolts of the sculplurc1: were found lo be misplaced. They were lo be re- Inday.

Wo Fault' Auto Insurance System Bill Given Approval BOSTON (AP) A new state law will make Massachusetts motorists the first in the United States to be covered by a new "no-fault" system of insurance. But one insurance company says it won't continue writing auto policies in the stale and more threaten to follow suit. Gov. Francis W. Sargent signed the bill Thursday night, ending a long effort to change 'he 43-year-old compulsory lia- bility insurance law under Motor Firm Settles For NEW YORK Motors Corp. has agreed lo pa consumer advocate Ralp Nader in his invasio of privacy case, Nader's law 'ers announced here. Nader sued the largest manufacturer in the Unite States foui- years ago for wh, le claimed was "harrassmen and intimidation" and invasio if privacy. Nader's lawyers said th compensatory damages soug] stalled some million wi many of the claims overlap ping, although General Motoi said Nader could have receive as much as million had Hi claims gone to trial. The case, which Ihe lawyei said was settled out of cour stemmed from Nader's attac in 1966 on the failure of aul manufacturers, including Gei eral Motors, to design sai ars. General Motors, Nader's su contended, had hired a privat nvestigation agency, Vincen "lillen Associates Inc., to in quire into his private life.

The package can tolal or more for drivers raled special risks. The insurance companies also object to a provision of the no- fault bill that requires auto- matic renewal of policies, with a few exceptions. Sargent said he will ask the legislature to repeal the auto- matic renewal provision and seek increased regulatory pow- ers for the state insurance com- missioner instead. But he stood firm behind the required rate reduction. "I will not succumb to he said of the insurance compa- nies' actions. Most auto insurance policies in Massachusetts do not expire until Dec. ill, so few motorists will be affected immediately if the insurance companies go through with their threat to stop doing business in the slate. To jo Widow To Mark Anniversary TOKYO (CP) The widow of Hideki Tojo will spend Saturday alone. Two sons of the wartimo prime minister who was hanged as a war criminal will mark the day quietly with their families. It will be the 25th anniversary of Japan's surrender in the Sec- ond World War. The day was Aug. 15, 1945, in Aug. 14 in North America. It reminds Katsu Tojo, the 80-y.ear-old widow, of the way she heard Emperor Hirohito broadcast the news of Japan's defeat, a grandson said. Another day, Dec. 23, Is more important in the Tojo family. On that day in 1948, Gen. Tojo died in Sugamo prison. His tomb is in Zoshigaya cemetery, foul' miles from the prison, and the widow visits it every Dec. 23. Teruo Tojo, 55, the wartime premier's second son, is direc- :or at an aircraft company which assembles U.S.-made jet fighters for Japan's defence agency. Tojo's youngest son, Toshio, 44, is a lieutenant-colonel in the aviation end of the self-defence force. WEATHER AND ROAD REPORT 70 ABOVE AT lo.
