Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, August 25, 1970 Get Advice From Sharp OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said Monday he bdicvcs "the experience of federal countries such as Canada is vitally impor- tant in working out solutions to tiie problems of world order." Speaking to the biennial con- gress of the World Association of World Federalists, Mr. Sharp said they might learn from the experience of Canada in con- Dief Raps Trudeau's Travel Binge WINNIPEG (CP) Former prime minister John Diefen- baker had harsh words for Prime Minister Trudeau's globe trotting activities Mon- day, suggesting Mr. Trudeau's record as prime minister was one of "continued vacations and hoped for vacations." Mr. Diefenbaker, doing a little travelling himself, told an airport news conference here that Mr. Trudeau's motto should be "travel, travel, travel and let Canadian affairs go to the devil." Mr. Tnideau, who left Ot- tawa for the Mediterranean Sunday night, after returning from a Caribbean vacation, has been constantly "on the go" for the last few months, Mr. Diefenbaker said. He recalled that when he was prime minister he had been criticized for going fishing for a few- days. Now such activities were deemed necessary to keep Mr. Tnideau in shape, he said. Commenting on Mr. Tru- deau's recent trip to northern British Columbia and the Yukon, Mr. Diefenbaker said "he can stand on his head with little difficulty, thereby emu- lating the position of most Ca- nadians today" when they view the government's activities. Mr. Diefenbaker stop p e d here euroute to Regina for the opening of the Saskatchewan centre for the arts. tending with a federal system of government and living beside the United Slates. "In Canada, in microcosm, we are working day by day with the same problems that the world faces on a global he lold the 600 delegates at the four-day meeting. The Canadian problems o f preserving the heritages of two cultures, reconciling the bene- fits of modern society with the integrity of native cultures and removing unemployment were analogous to the great interna- tional issues, he said. Tlie problem of existing next- door to the U.S. also illustralcd an issue faced by the world fed- eralists, he said. "The central problem Canada faces is how to live distinct from but in harmony with an j immensely powerful j the minister said. j Similarly, it was the aim of the world federalists to create a system "that will yield the max- imum of world order and secu rity while protecting and pres- erving the essential spirit and culture of all the world's peo- ples." The organization, with dele- gates from 23 countries at the congress, advocates greater power for the United Nations and greater adherence to world law. Delegates will consider such issues as UN control over the multinational corporation, inter- national pollution control and the need for ail international military force. Mr. Sharp said he was hopeful the 1970s would be a more peaceful period than the 60s. Improved German-Soviet rela- tions, U.S.-Soviet arms .negotia- tions, a forthcoming ban on weapons on the seabed and the arrival of China in the interna- tional community were welcome signs, he said.

Picketing Of Seed Plants intimidation Says Judge CALGARY (CP) Mr. Jus- tice Harold Hiky of the Alber- ta Supreme Court said Monday that picketing of seed plants in northern Alberta by members of the National Farmers Union is nothing more than intimida- tion. "Their activities cannot be termed legitimate union activ- Metis Association Re-Elects Daniels LAC ANNIE (CP) Stan Daniels was returned here as president of the Metis Asso- ciation of Alberta and he said his re-election was "a clear mandate for my plan to get the Metis people politically in- volved." Mayor's Car Sale Approved By City Council CALGARY (CP) City council at first refused, then changed its mind Monday and to sell the black 1966 Cadillac that has served as Calgary's official limousine. Mayor Rod Sykss has refused to use the vehicle because it is too fancy. As a result, tenders were called last week and a chiroprac- tor Dr. D. K. Ladell submit- ted the highest bid, The first time around, a motion to sell the Cadillac to the highest bidder, with the money going to the po- lice department car fund, was defeated by council on a 6-to-6 tie vote. Mayor Sykes voted to sell. But Aid. Lou Goodwin raised a constitutional point, won a second vote and this time council voted 7-to-5 in favor of selling. S, Vietnamese Equipped To Carry On War WASHINGTON (AP) Se- nate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said here the South Vietnamese now have a well- equipped army of a million men and "it's about time they stood on their own two feet and looked after the affairs of their country, both externally and in- ternally.1' It's their country and their future and will Ire long after we're the Montanan said after declaring they should not attempt to keep shifting the re- sponsibility to the United States. Mansfield's comment was made in answer to a reporter's question about Vice-President Spiro T, Agnew's statement that if Cambodia should fall to tiie Communists, the Vietaamization program and the disengagement of American Irnops from South Vietnam would be impossible. TWO LOCATIONS 535 13th St. N. and College Mall "TclEVISION IS OUR MIDDLE NAME" He told 600 Metis at the as- sociation's annual meeting that the Metis' main concern at present should be education, not the retention of ethnic cul- ture. "We hear a lot of talk about native people retaining .their he said. "But culture has a way of looking after it- self among people who are proud of their accomplish- ments. "The Metis have many and varied problems housing for example. But, the fact is, the solution to my housing problem is not to give me a house. Very likely I might be unable to pay the taxes on it without a steady job. "So it comes down to that broad field known as education. The Metis must be trained to hold positions in an increasing- ly sophisticated society. One of the Metis' main prob- lems in obtaining recognition and financial aid, Mr. Daniels said, is that "ours is not on the federal list of cultural, ethnic groups." Mr. Justice Riley said in denying an NFU application to set aside temporary injunctions against picketing at plants op- erated by three different firms. "Their conduct is intimida- tion." The NFU members are pick- eting seed plants to support de- mands for an increase in the price of fescue seed and a voice in determining what the price should be. Most of Canada's production of fescue seed, a popular in- gredient in grass seed, comes from the Peace River country northwest of Edmonton. In upholding temporary in- junctions granted to the Alber- ta Wheat Pool, Federal Grain Ltd. and National Grain Ltd., Mr. Justice Riley said the pur- pose or object of the NFU "is gravely suspicious and perhaps illegal." Insisting that he Is in no sense juding the rights of the parties in advance of tiie trial, Mr. Justice Riley said it is no solution to limit the number of pickets or caution the persons involved to remain peaceful. He said the NFU is not certi- fied, has not processed proper strike action and has no trade union rights to protect. Mr. Justice" Riley said he is unable to find a single Cana- dian case recognizing rights for producers against purchasers or for "strangers to coerce pur- chases to well-nigh double the price for their products when a simple remedy would be to withhold their product from sale."

Opening Set For Free Health Clinic CALGARY (CP) A free clinic to treat serious health programs among transienl youths will open in temporary premises at the Drug Informa- tion Centre Sept. 15, with more than 25 volunteer doctors pro- viding medical services. Dr. Arthur Sohn, 31, an in- tern at Holy Cross Hospital and a principal organizer of the project, said today that "statis- tics are scarce but it is obvious there are serious health prob- lems among approximately 60( transient young poeple who stay in Calgary hostels every night. Dr. Sohn said in an interview that many of those who neec treatment most are afraid to consult private practice physi- cians, whom they view as es- tablishment people. Others avoid involvement in the for- malities of hospital emergency units and the care they give. Dr. Sohn, who worked in similar clinic in the Haight- Ashbury hippie district of San Francisco, said a free treat- ment centre has operated in Toronto but the only one be- sides the Calgary clinic now being organized is in Vancou- ver.

The report said that despite recent setbacks, wheat is ex- pected to yield about 2S.2 bu- shels an acre on about 2.6 mil- lion acres for a potential total crop of 73 million bushels. Last year wheat production in the province totalled 140 mil- lion bushels and the Pool said Confirm Cholera Cases JERUSALEM (Reuters) Nine cases of cholera have been officially confirmed in Israel and Israeli-held territories, all in the Jerusalem area. Five of Hie c a s e s w o youngsters, a woman and two residents of the Arab refugee camp Anata northeast of Jerusalem. Two ethers come from the Jewish sector of the city, one from the Arab village Beit Han- ina and one from the village Beitir. But three Arabs from Jericho on the west bank of the Jordan River who were also suspected of having the disease have been released from hospital. Although health authorities have started a campaign to in- form the public of hygiene mea- sures, they still believe there is no need for mass inoculation1. However, travellers from Cy- prus and Iran require vaccina- tion certificates as do people crossing the Jordan River bridges into the west bank. Scared By Tremor SHILLONG, India (Reuters) People ran screaming out of their houses when an earth tremor rocked this northeast In- dian city for about five seconds Monday. There were no reports of any damage or casualties. the decline this year was caused by acreage taken out of production. Barley production is expect- ed to reach 202 million bushels, down slightly from 1970, while 31 million bushels of rapeseed are expected compared with 14 million bushels in 1809. The Pool also reported that hot, dry weather throughout the province last week hasten- ed crop maturity, although nu- merous reports of shrunken, immature kernels are being re- ceived. Barley appears to be the most seriously affected. Swathing has begun in all re- gions but is furthest advanced in southeastern districts where nearly one-half of wheat and about 75 per cent of barley has been cut. Provincially, wheat is 17-per- cent swathed compared with 19 per cent in 1969. Barley has been 12-per-cent threshed, wheat six per cent, five per per cent of oats, 75 per cent of rye and two per cent of flax. About five per cent of the rape- seed crop has been threshed, said the report.
