Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Termination Of Auto Pact Recommended WASHINGTON (CP) The ways and means committee of the U.S. House of Representa- tives has recommended that President Nixon terminate the Canada-United States automo- tive agreement unless progress is made soon on achieving the agreement's objectives. In a report on trade matters made public this week, the com- mittee said it expects urgent at- Counterfeit Air Tickets Circulate MONTREAL (CP) Counter- feit airline of the most negotiable documents in the be costing air- lines as much as million a year, the International Air Transport Association said Tuesday. IATA said in a statement the use of counterfeit tickets is more widespread than ever. "Although other forms of fraudulent use of airline tickets have been reported in the past, this is believed to be the first time that counterfeiters have at- tempted to reproduce, sell and use airline tickets." The association said the tick- ets first came to the airlines' at- tention in the Pacific and South- east Asia regions "but some have also been used for travel between points in North America, and the Pacific basin." IATA said serial numbers on the phony tickets are known and the association has sent all its information to the airlines. Recently uncovered counter- feit tickets were of poor quality and were quite easy to detect, the association said. OPENS FAIR DAMASCUS, Syria (Reuters) The 17th Damascus interna- tional fair opened Tuesday with 26 countries atking part in the biggest economic and trade dis- play in the Middle East. The fair will end Sept. 20. tention will be given by tin Nixon administration to the at tainment of the free-trade agreement objectives. "While our automotive ports to Canada have multi the report slated, "im ports have grown ev.en mor rapidly, and our bilateral sur plus, in this sector has disap pear'ed." The committee said no step liad been taken that will assun attainment of the objective o the agreement of allowing mar ket forces to determine th most economic pattern of in vestment, production and trade For example, it states, a] though the retail price differen tial between automobiles in the U.S. and Canada have been re duced, prices remain higher in Canada. Failure to eliminate the price differential is a consequence o the fact that under terms of the agreement marliet forces havi not yet been allowed to operat freely. EXPRESSED CONCERN The committee notes "with concern" that five years aftei the agreement was signed thi Canadian duty remains vir tually unchanged and Canadian citizens still cannot import auto- mobiles duty-free from the U.S. although there is no such re striction on imports from Can ada. That Canadian restriction anc other conditions frustrate the achievement of the free-tradi objectives of the agreement, the committee said. "They artificially permit tin continuation of a price differen tial and interfere with commer ciai decisions in an industry in which it has been agreed tha market forces would b.e allowec to operate, and consequently narrow the over-all market for automotive products. "Should there not be progress in obtaining the agreement objectives, your committee be- lieves that consideration shoulc be given to the president's exer- cising his authority to terminate the agreement."

The American complaint ii about the transitional arrange ments which were designed to Sharon Dying When She Was Hanged LOS ANGELES (AP) As beautiful actress Sharon Tate was dying from stab wounds the coroner said Tuesday, her killers hanged her by the neck with a nylon rope slung over a ceiling beam. Dr. Thomas T. Noguchi saic Miss Tate probably was in a standing position when her ful body weight was lifted by the rope and she was "suspended for perhaps not too long a pe riod during the dying proc- ess." Noguchi, on the stand for the third day, said the cause of death was multiple stab wounds and pathological examinatior did not show the usual signs of strangulation. He did not say whether death could have been caused by hanging had Miss Tate not been stabbed. The rope ran from Miss Tate's neck over the beam and .was attached at the other end to the neck of victim Jay Sebring. Noguchi did not discuss how Miss Tate might have been sus- pended. Noguchi under cross-examina- tion said he examined the bod- ies of five persons slain at Miss Tate's home. Two of the victims, he said were under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug similar to LSD when, they were fatally stabbed. The heiress Abi- gail Folger and Polish playboy Wojieiech taken the drug MDA, autopsy reports showed. But their wounds indicated they put up a violent struggle against their killers. Coroner Thomas T. Noguchi, testifying as a state witness, discussed the autopsy findings Monday at the murder-conspir- acy trial of Charles M. Manson, 35, hippie-type clan leader, and ftrce girl At- kins, 21, Patricia Krenwinkel, 22, and Leslie Van Houten, 20. Miss Folger and Frykowski ,vere houseguests at Miss Tate's mansion the night of Aug. 9, 1069, and were slain along wiUi -he pregnant actress, hair styl- ist Jay Sebring, and Steven Par- ent, a friend of the caretaker. STABBED 28 TIMES The corner said Miss Folger was stabbed 28 times in the 'ace, neck, breast, abdomen, rack, shoulder, left thigh and ioth arms and hands. Fry- cowski, he said, was stabbed 51 imes, any seven of which could lave been fatal, and was shot wice and hit on the head 13 imes, perhaps with a gun butt. In a hearing with the jury ab- sent, the trial judge refused Vlanson's request for a "cease and order against the heriff, saying Manson is not icing harassed in jail as he had ontended.

Phone 328-5526 prevent the Canadian side of Hie industry from being swamped as trade barriers were partly removed. The result has been an expan- sion and modernization oE Cana- dian factories and a growth of 85 per cent in production of motor vehicles in Canada. With an eye on their diminish- ing share of the North Ameri- can auto market, U.S. officials have been meeting periodically with Canadians in mutual at- tempts to find a compromise so- lution to the problem. In Ottawa, the U.S. report aroused little concern in the trade department, which has been involved in sporadic nego- tiations about the future of the auto pact for almost a year. The House committee's rec- ommendations repeated old ai- guments previously expressed in some U.S. quarters, a trade spokesman said. The report came as no sur- prise in the context of a fluuj of political pressure in the United a con- gressional election y e a r o r more protectionist trade poli- cies. As a committee report, the recommendation is a long way from becoming policy on the U.S. administration, the spokes- man said. Termination of the 1965 auto pact would require a year's advance notice by either gov- ernment. Such action has never been suggested in a series of formal and informal talks about the pact between U.S. and Ca- nadian officials.
