Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Auguit LETHBRIDGE HERALD-5 MPs may want higher salary OTTAWA (CP) Not much has been said yet, but there's a good chance MPs will vote themselves a pay boost in the early stages of the new Parlia- ment "If not in the first session, then almost certainly in the next says one cabinet source "Along with everyone else, MPs are feeling the pinch of inflation and the high cost of living The last raise was voted in 1971 when the basic salary for an MP was raised to from and the tax-free allowance to defray expenses was increased to from "That was three years says the cabinet source Can you name anyone else who hasn't had a raise in the last three years He said several MPs have Prices slashed BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP- Saudi Arabia, the world's major oil producer, has slashed domestic prices of gasoline and other petroleim products to fight inflation The Saudi press agency said decrees issued by King Faisal provide for a reduction in the price of oil products on the local market, lower electricity rates lower import duties on some goods and cancellation of import duties on others, longterm credit facilities for housing projects and fixed prices for basic foodstuffs already asked for a salary review and the pressure will grow steadily if nothing is done Disposing of the problem early in the new Parliament would allow the public outcry that surrounds every pay boost for MPs to settle well before the next election, probably in 1978 Steadily-rising wages in other professions made it difficult in some cases to attract top-notch candidates for the July 8 election, he said Compared to what a doctor or lawyer gets, an MP's salary looks small Like the last increase, the spokesman said, the next will likely follow a review by a specially appointed committee But unlike the last time, the issue may be turned over to a permanent committee with the power to make periodic increases on its own The basic figure ap- plies to all MPs except the two from the Northern territories They get an extra Office holders also are paid more Cabinet ministers With portfolios and the leader of the official opposition are paid an additional plus a 000 car allowance The prime minister gets an extra 000 plus a car allowance bringing his total salary to 000 That looks high to a good many Canadians but it's still below the 000 level that now applies to some senior civil they work under the prime minister and his cabinet This time, something more permanent should be done the spokesman said CAREERS REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY Experienced waiter or waitress for Alexander Restaurant, experience necessary Please apply in person CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Sales Representative MANAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES In a Sporting Goods Store Specializing in SKIING.

Whites in Arctic Calm in Middle East deceptive, misleading By ROBERT TRUMBULL New York Times Service INUVIK, NWT This raw frontier town, where the sidewalks are rough boards and the buildings have to be on stilts to avoid melting the sensitive permaforst, is the scene of a spirited struggle to establish Eskimo rights as white domination increases in the Canadian Arctic Inuvik the name means "place of man" in the Eskimo language is the symbol and spearhead of an ever ex-> pandmg effort of white developers to tap the far north's oil, gas and other resources This settlement of about people, the largest in the Canadian Arctic, is a way on the route to oil and gas exploration sites on the Beaufort Sea and Arctic islands If the proposed pipeline from Northern Alaska through Canada to the United states is built, it will pass by here Already 14 air services, including charter and helicopter lines, use the landing strip just outside the town A plane from the United States navy scientific station at Point Barrow, Alaska, is a frequent visitor the Americans com- pare notes with Canadian colleagues at the Arctic Research Laboratory here Tourists, who keep the three hotels fill- ed during the brief Arctic summer, photograph by the light of the midnight sun the town's outstanding architectural feature, a Roman Catholic church shaped like a huge igloo In the warm months, when temperatures go as high as 80 degrees, a constant parade of trucks from the busy port area on the east channel of the Mackenzie River stirs clouds of dust from the brown clay streets The streets are paved for nine months a year says Richard Hill, the director of the research station, "with ice The monotonous landscape, dead white in a long freezing winter and a mixture of flat brown and dull green in summer is given a touch of life by the pastel colored houses and the shiny metal sewage and general utility conduits, called constructed above ground to leave the permafrost undisturbed that wind through the town like gigantic silver snakes "This was the first community north of the Arctic circle built to provide the nor- mal facilities of a Canadian states an engraved plaque in front of the modern elementary school Inuvik was designed 'not only as a base for development and but also as a center "to bring education, medical and new oppor- tunity to the people of the west the inscription says The construction of Inuvik, completed in 1961 to plans drawn in Ottawa, altered the basic relationship that always existed between whites and Eskimos, says Peter J Usher, a geographer familiar with Eskimo ways, in a report compiled for an Eskimo rights organization based here, the Committee for Original Peoples En- titlement The awkward name is usually shortened to its acronym COPE "When white people first came north they depended on native people for sur- vival for food, shelter, guiding and the report states "When Inuvik was built, with a lot of fancy hous- ing and office buildings, things changed Now the Eskimos became suddenly dependent on the whites Leaving the old, self sufficient life of hunting, fishing and trapping, many moved into towns for jobs, mostly with the government, and to educate their children in government schools But the jobs often turned out to be tem- porary as projects were completed Many Eskimos began living on welfare payments rather than give up the newly acquired tastes that made them reluctant to return to the igloo village on the frozen tundra, the fishing hole cut through the ice, the trap line and caribou trails in the snow Meanwhile the government encouraged Eskimos to send their children to boarding schools in the towns where they are educated for the white man's world Not only has this practice produced a yawning generation gap among Eskimos, said Dr Douglas Billmgsley research officer of the department of economic development in the Northwest Territory's government but the available jobs mostly requiring minimal skills fail to meet the expec tations of the young graduates "The result' said Billmgsley is that it is the illiterates not the graduates, who get the best paying work and become the elite What does this tell a native about our system7" The revolution in life style among an unprepared people coming within little more than a decade has produced severe social dislocations according to Nellie Cournoyea, the half Eskimo half Norwegian manager of the Inuvik station of the Canadian Broadcasting Cor- poration By TERENCE SMITH New York Times Service JERUSALEM By Middle Eastern standards, the 12 weeks that have elapsed since the Israeli Syrian troop separation agreement was signed have been a tranquil time There has been the odd skirmish on the Lebanese border, and the occasional shelling of suspected Palestinian guerrilla targets by Israeli gunboats But in this fractious corner of the world that sort of activity passes for peace By common consensus, however the surface calm is misleading Neither time nor the flow of events in the area has stood still since the formal fighting came to an end on May 31 While Watergate and Cyprus have dominated the headlines, the Arab Israeli dispute has continued to simmer beneath the surface There have been changes in the military realities and political alignments m the area that are likely to have a major impact on the immediate future of the Middle East In the opinion of officials here and in Washington, most of the developments do not augur well for peace On the contrary, they tend to reinforce the grim estimate held at the highest levels here that a new round of Middle East fighting is inevitable unless there is substantial political movement This prognosis is based on two gloomy but realistic conclusions 1 The October War, for all its bloodshed did nothing to alter or reduce the basic hostility between the Arab States and Israel Rather than encourage new more conciliatory attitudes on both sides the 1973 fighting tended to reinforce the hard line positions Israels doubts about fundamental Arab intentions were strengthened while the Arab pride and appetite for more triumphs was whetted Rather than opening the way to a political settlement, the October fighting renewed the military option as a feasible and potentially profitable alternative for the Arab States Rather than reduce Israeli fears about the possibility of imminent attack, the war heightened them 2 None of the basic political issues that separate the two sides recognition, territory, Jerusalem and the future of the Palestinians was resolved by the October War The Arabs still shrink from the crucial step of acknowledging Israels right to exist, while the Israelis have vet to focus on the real merits of the Palestinian claims In the months since the war the two sides have been jockeying for position First they pushed for the best arrangements thev could make in the troop separation agreements sometimes arguing stubbornly
