Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JJ _ THE HERALD Tueidoy, Auguit 1970 Confidence Crisis Grows In Mideast Ceasefire WASHINGTON (Reuters) A crisis of confidence between Israel and Die United Slates ap- peared to be growing today amid American refusal to eon- firm Israeli clrarges that Egypt has violated the Middle East ceasefire by allegedly building up its missile defences. Israel appeared deeply co cemcd by Uic inability of U.' experts to express a judjjmei on the charge, based on U.i and Israeli intelligence data.

In an order of the day issue< on Soviet Union's annua, Aviation Day, Marshal Grechko said the Soviet people are "fully aware of the serious threat to world peace and security of peo- ple created by imperialist ac- tions in Indochina and the Mid- dle East." He added: "In these condi- Job Harder Now Says Ombudsman CALGARY (CP) Alberta Ombudsman George McClellan said today he regrets his posi- tion is no longer "above con- troversy." He told a meeting of the Downtown Kiwanis Club his job now is "harder to do" than it was before a public inquiry criticized his role in the investi- gation of the dismissal of an Edmonton real estate sales- man. Mr. McClellan said his "in- tegrity has been called into question" and he has been "condemned" in recent weeks. He said a public meeting is "neither the time nor the place" for .him to maka his case, but the legislature would be the ultimate judge of his ac- tions. Mr. McClellan .was appointed ombudsman in 1967 and was censured for the first time two weeks ago when C. C. McLaurin, a former Chief Jus- tice of the Alberta Supreme Court, led an inquiry into the ombudsman handling of a com- plaint against the Edmonton Real Estate Board. HALE OPTICAL jjf COMPANY LTD.

He said the pipeline, which has affected about 150 birds, was repaired two weeks ago rat "It will take a long time to clean up the spilled oil." The line runs from a battery retaliation to the main Ed- monton-to-Drumheller' pipeline. The leak allowed oil to run irom the line into a creek about 40 feet away but it did not run far down the creek, Mr. Helnyfc said. Part nirned away. of it was Prisoners Freed ATHENS (Reuters) The overnment released Monday 50 political prisoners it had eld as dangerous to public se- urity since the army coup in pril, 1967. proof of the Israeli allegation that Egypt had moved Soviet missiles closer to the Suez canal in violation of the ceasefire. It was believed that at least another few days would pass be- fore the American investigation was complete, despite the con- tention of Israeli diplomats that the delay was undermining their belief in the ability of the United States to police the truce. Israeli sources in Washington said that the evidence given to the state department was irrefu- table and the longer the delay the deeper was their conviction that Washington was trying to dodge the issue. MORE MOVES REPORTED Highly placed sources in Jeru- salem said today Egyptian forces have been reinforced within the Suez canal standstill zone in yet another violation of the ceasefire. They said both troops and equipment have been moved into the 31-mile frozen zone. Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban accused Egypt Monday of further expanding i t s missile network in the canal standstill zone just 24 hours after U.S. Defence Secretary Melvin Laird said two earlier Israeli charges could not be proved or dis- proved. Eban's charge of violations said to have been observed Aug. submitted to the United Nations. The charge cited the presence of missiles and auxiliary equipment on a site seen empty Aug. 13, and work under way for other sites. State department sources were taken aback by Eban's sharp statement criticizing the United States Monday. Ebah said Laird did not have all the available documents and material when he made his apparent refer- ence, to the latest Israeli com- plaints.

Roland M i c h e n e flew in to this remote commu ity Monday and every one of t 170 villagers, from the younge baby to the oldest grandfathc turned out to welcome the mo important visitor ever to com The Governor-General an Mrs. Michener arrived on small and crowded plane for short visit, part of their 10-da tour of the Western Arctic. Tli visit was extended as the vie regal couple enjoyed its info mal stay. The plane touched down at new landing strip, built th summer by village youths wh spent last winter at a Whit horse, Y.T., vocational schoo to learn to use the necessar heavy construction equipment. The vice-regal couple turne down an offer to ride into th village in the town's only vehi cle, a half-ton pickup truck. Th village has no road connection with the rest of Canada, an road vehicles are stranger t villagers in Old Crow tlia planes. The Governor-General an Mrs. Michener both walked th quarter-mile into the villag chatting along the way wit various persons as the whol village formed a parade behinc EAT OUTDOORS Picnic tables were set up 01 the meeting grounds, a higl grassy bank above a curve o the Porcupine River, in warm sunshine. Governor-General and Mrs Michener were served a moose meat casserole, and the table were loaded with bluberry pies and home-made cakes and cook ies. The Governor-General, during brief speech following the lunch, commented on the fac that the ancestors of the villag ers originally lived further downstream, where the Porcu pine River joins the Yukon River. This area was in the ter- ritory sold to the United States, now Alaska state. The villagers moved because they wanted to live in Canadian territory. The first site of the new vil- lage also .had to be left when was found that it was still within the Alaska boundary. But the villagers this time watched the line being surveyed and then moved east of it.

A plant spokesman said the 55 men, the first of 110 to be laid off, were a result of effects on the company from a slow down in the Canadian economy and increasing pressure from imports on the company pro- ducts.

Former chief Joe Kaye, one of the founders of the village at its- present site in 1926, was presented to the Governor-Gen- eral.

Heavy Rains Limit Viet War Action SAIGON (AP) More than 100 North Vietnamese attacked a-South Vietnamese camp, be- "ore dawn today in northern South Vietnam, but the South Vietnamese drove the attackers off, said they killed 38 of them, and reported only one defender wounded. It was the only significant ground action reported as heavy -ains and low clouds blanketed he northernmost provinces. But U.S. B-52s were out as usual, vith 50 of the big bombers lying raids, mostly on the Lao- ian side of the border. The Norfh Vietnamese at- acked a So'uth Vietnamese unit night bivouac eight miles vest of Fire Base O'Reilly, one f seven bases guarding the ap- proaches to the populous coastal owlands. Planes were called in 0 illuminate the attackers with lares as the men in the camp ought back. In Cambodia, the Viet Cong mbushed a large rice convoy h its way to Phnom Penh MOD- ay afternoon and a military pokesman said a great deal of re was taken. The ambush oc- urred 45 miles north of Phnom enh. The spokesman also revealed lat Cambodian Premier Lon 01 made his first visit to a bat- efront Monday. A helicopter jok him 80 miles north of hnom Penh to Kompong 'horn, which has been under ege for more than a month. Margaret MacLean, director of the school, said Monday she sees no hope of the situation improving because, while ap- plications have soared, the uni- versity has held fast to an ad- mission quota far below stu- dent demand. The new academic plan num- ber nine, which is to be dis- cussed at a special meeting of the university's general facul- ties council in October, allows total enrolment of 150. Mrs. MacLean said in an in- terview this will mean 60 stu- dent? in first year courses, 60 in the second year and 15 in each of the third and fourth years of a dsgree program. The school had been hoping for an allocation of 80 students in each of the first two years and 25 in the third and fourth. Mrs. MacLean said she is worried that Canada is "lag- ging so far behind" in the train- ing of dental hygienists. "We have five dental hygien- ist schools in Canada graduat- ing about 150 students a year. T h e _ royal commission on health in 1064 recommended that we graduate a year by 1968." STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons committee that took long, searching look at Canada United States larly economic public Monday its report that recommends eventual Canadian control of companies operating in Canada. The committee's heaviest rec- Canadians be enabled to own 51 per cent of companies operating in Canada made known some time ago, first in press reports and then in an announcement by committee chairman Ian Wahh St. But tile full details of the committee's study were not made public until Monday. Herb Gray, minister without portfolio with responsibilities for finance, has been studying foreign ownership and a state- ment is expected late this year. The committee recommends an 'extension of a 1366 govern- ment guideline that urged for- eign-owned firms to make avail- able Equity shares for Canadi- ans. The committee recom- mends that it be "the general policy of the Canadian govern- ment that all companies operat- ing in Canada shall, over a rea- sonable period of time and with due regard to varying circum- stances, including availability of Canadian capital, permit at least 51 per- cent of their voting shares to be owned by Canadian citizens." The report says it is in the in- terest of both countries that Canada remain politically united and strong. SEES DANGER "The danger which Canada must guard against is that it will drift into such a position of dependency in relation to the United States that it will be un- able, in practice, to adopt poli- cies displeasing to the United States because of the fear of American reaction which would involve consequences unaccept- able to Canadians." The committee also suggested foreign investment in Canada be distributed t h r o u g h several countries rather than be concen- trated in American hands. The report likely will be studied by a cabinet committee before the government takes any position on it. One recommendation was that the government should establish a Canadian ownership and con- trol bureau, under a cabinet minister, and give it wide re- sponsibilities to oversee "mat- ters pertaining to foreign owner- ship requirements, gather infor- mation on the extent and trends of foreign ownership, and en- sure that subsidiaries of foreign firms were not being restricted by foreign laws. Along with its recommenda- tion for majority ownership of corporations by Canadians, the committee said that a majority of directors should also be Ca- nadian. The report said it did not rec- ommend an inflexible require- ment that 51 per cent of the shares be owned by Canadians because such a.i amount of Ca- nadian capital is "not likely to be available fo.' many years." CONTAINS PITFALLS "It might also involve a mas- sive misallocation of scarce Ca- nadian capital resources, it might tend to reduce the inflow of foreign capital and the knowl- edge, techniques, skills and markets which often accompany such capital and might restrict desirable resource and in- dustrial development." The committee, supporting the proposed Canada Develop- ment Corporation, said it shou assume a leadership role in Canada's business and financial community. It should carry out projects which are beyond the capacity of a single institution "while throughout maintaining a clear Canadian presence." Expressing concern that for- eigners, including corporations, were buy-ing up large parcels of Canadian recreation land, the committee suggested that gov- ernment agencies take steps to ensure that these lands are maintained for Canadians.

A renowned research institute has found a unique healing sub- stance with the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It re- lieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hcmorrhoidal case his- tory after another reported "very striking improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) took place. And most improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hcmorrhoidal condi- tions. AH this was accomplished with a healing substance (BIo- Pyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates growth of new tissue. Bio-Dyne is offered in ointment and supposi- tory form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrink- ing hemorrhoids, Preparation II lubricates and makes elimina- tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated causa of hemorrhoids.
