Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FORECAST HIGH WEDNESDAY 75-80. VOL.

This is quite amazing since Feffer- man has never atlended high school. Berlin accord feather in An official policy regarding grants to charitable, cultural and other such organizations was adopted by city council Monday when it approved a resolution by Alderman Vaugban Hembroff. The six-point policy slates all applications f o r operational grants for "charitable, cultural and other like purposes" made Sept. 1, 1971. be refused. At the same time, the city will support any grant applica- tions made by such organiza- tions to senior levels of gov- ernment. Two sections opposed by Deputy Mayor Rex Little stale that the city will encourage Iwlh the province and the fed- eral government to establish funds out of which grants may be made for services which are constitutionally the responsibil- ity of those governments. If such funds are formed, the city will aid in setting up a commission of interested citi- zens to administer the funds. Finally, (lie city Mill inform all organizations that it will en- tertain the idea of the cif.y pay- ing for specific services, as re- quested by the city. Alderman Hembroff said he was "distressed" by the idea that grants were being with- drawn because the council members felt the organizations were not effective or useful within the community. Rather, it was simply a mat- ter of puttinr financial respon- sibility where it belonged, he said. lie suggested the senior governments could take a hand and perhaps the organizations themselves might also be prompted to "dig deeper." Expressing a sentiment that has received supporl in pre- vious discussions, Aid. Vera Ferguson said the policy re- flected the view that if organi- zations could not exist through voluntary financial support council had no right to spend tax dollars to keep them alive. Mayor Andy Anderson said he did not want to see the ''door closed entirely'' on grants and voted against the resolution, as did Aid. Steve Ketch and C. W. Chichesler. Defence budget freeze lifted OTTAWA (CP) Canada will retire licr two squac'- rons of Bomarc anti-aircraft missiles hut will continue use of nuclear-equipped interceptor aircraft for North American air defence, the government announced today. A while paper on defence also provides for the lift- ing of the freeze on the defence budget a year ahead of schedule, in the 1972-73 fiscal year, and for a man increase in Ihe projecled slrenglh of the forces at April 1, 1973. The forces will then number inslead of 000. They are currently being reduced from a strength of two years ago. The policy paper said the defence budget will re- main within about one per cent of Ihe present billion ceiling for 1972-73. Beyond that it will be eslahlished "on the basis of program forecasts and estimates in accordance with practice followed by other d'Or, is currently undergoing trials out of Halifax. The white paper says the Bomarc anti-aircraft missiles should be retired because of the relative decline in importance of the Soviet bomber threat. Intercontinental missiles, against which there is yet no defence, are the more likely weapon. While surveillance will be needed to keep check on govern m e n I depart- ments." IMPOSED 2 YEARS AGO The current ceiling, imposed by the government more than two years ago. was to last to the end of the 1972-73 fiscal year. It is being lifled, the while paper said, to take care of new radar and communications ex- penses and to finance additional roles for the CF-5 ground sup- port aircraft. Two squadrons of Canada- based CF-5s are being commit- ted for close support on NATO's northern flank in Norway. CF-5s also are to be used for photo reconnaissance in Canada and over coastal waters, and some will replact T-33 aircraft in the advanced training role. The white paper provides for maintenance of Canada's role in anti-submarine warfare, but says the long-term objective is for more general-purpose mari- time capability. The Canadian navy's hydro- foil, developed as a sub-chasing warship, is being considered for a coastal surveillance and con- trol role.
