2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, August 57, Meany listens to Nixon WASHINGTON (AT) In a peace-making meeting with AFL-CIO President George Meany, the Nixon ndministra- lion has guaranteed organized a role in determining nhnt will follow the 90-day ".Mr. Meany's response was to give us a good hearing and lowing great concern about j many aspects of the problems' the freeze was causing, and that r.e hoped he would recognize those Secre- tary James D. Hodgson said after Thursday's session with Meany. The" administration's chief o! planning for the second state of die anti-inflation drive, Herbert Klein, said would most de- voutly hope to avoid move- ment" in the direction of wage and price control. "We regard Slage 2 as a sloge in the transition from the freeze to free markets, and so will be looking at various possi- bilities of trimming the cover- age, of adopting the guidelines, of invoking the co-operation in one way or said Stein, vice-chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. KXTENSION UNLIKELY Stein virtually ruled out an extension of the freeze. He pre- dicted mounting problems as it continues tonard Nov. 12, say- ing people can be expected to stand pat only for a short time. Worsening trade deficits were cited by President Nixon when he announced a 10-per-cent charge on many imports and loosened the dollar from its tie wilh gold, And, Thursday, the deficit record stretched to a fourth month as the commerce department reported a July trade of imports exceeding ex- ports by million. From January Uirouph July, the department said, the trade deficit has grown to mil- lion.

Mr. Benson told the law soci- ety Ihc impact of the newly-im- posed U.S. tax on imports won't be too severe for the Canadian economy as a whole. But the longer it remains in effect the more widespread mil be ils damaging impact. It is premature to estimate possible repercussions, Mr. Ben- son said, "but we have strong reason to hope that out of the intensive discussion now under way in many world centres will emerge a better and stronger international trade and financial system." OTTAWA (CP) Canadian' goods which were competitive with Japanese exports in the United States now may be nble to regain their position, an in- formant said today.

The United States Coast Guard in Port Huron. Mich., said 42 perscns were on board the German vessel, including 11 passengers. There were no inju- ries. The passengers were taken z Port Huron motel. OTTAWA (CP) A security group to advise the cabinet and federal government on threats to the national social, political and economic order lias been set up by the solicitor-general's department. A department spokesman said today the the secu- rity planning and research has three members and will probably develop to 20 persons. Although' Solicitor-General Jean-Pierre Coyer, vacationing in Europe, was not available for comment, the spokesman said the group will gather and ana- 1 y s e information "from all sources" and report to cabinet. It was set up so "the govern- ment can anticipate things be- fore they the spokes- man said. It will gather and re- port information "that might appear from non-military, sub- versive groups.'' Although it has no direct connection with other police forces, the group will have close liason with the RCMP and ether forces. The spokesman said the group was set up partly because of the October crisis in Quebec. At that time "there was a great deal of confusicn and informa- tion was not getting to the right people quickly enough." The group now is composed of Col. Robin Bourne, a former ad- viser to the Privy Council in in- ternal security and an artillery officer, Lt.-Col, Walter Dabros. a former member of the armed forces security branch and S. Egt. Patrick Banning, formerly of Ihc RCMP.

CAMROSE (CP) A mor- atorium on debts of hard- pressed farmers -would bo in- troduced by a New Democra- tic Party government, provin- cial leader Grant Notley said here. Winding up a three-day Lour of nine Alberta constituencies, Mr. Notley said the debt mor- al orium wculd be accompa- nied by a refinancing scheme which would enable farmers to stay on their land. "Priorities in a g r i c u 1 lure must deal with the immediate income crisis of family fann- ers and with the long-range problem of erosion of rural life." While Mr. Notley concedes that the NTJP will likely be an also-ran in the provincial elec- tion Monday, he does see a strong possibility of holding (be balance of pmver wilh a minority government. ''Initially, we wc-re fairly modest in our outlook. Now we believe realistically that we can win up to 10 seats." Mr. Nctley, who faces his major opposition from A. 0. Fimrite, minister without port- folio in the Spirit River-I ui view riding, said if the XDP is able to hold the balance of power, "I would be a tenibly hard bargainer for imple- mentation of Ite plat- form."

Floating the yen, with the 51'cssures in exchange markets 'or a higher valuation on it, means that American buyers of lapanese goods will also have to pay more for Japanese goods. To the extent that Canadian Joods compete with Japanese ;oods in the U.S. market, the 'bating yen should be of some benefit to Canadian exporters, particularly if the yen moves up substantially. The main competitive areas are believed to be in synthetic rubber and plastics, and in ma- chinery and mechanical and electrical equipment. The U.S. imported about million worth of Canadian syn- thetic resins, plastic materials and rubber from Canada last year, and 98.5 per cent of it now is subject to Uie 10-per-ccnt im- port surcharge. U.S. imports of Canadian electrical machinery and equip- ment totalled 5281.8 milbon last year, 62.6 per cent of which now is subject to the U.S. purchases of machinery and mechanical equipment in Can- ada totalled million, and 37.7 per cent of that now is sub- jeH to the additional duty.

Benson returned today from Toronto and was lo receive a report on (lie Washington meeting Thurs- day of senior finance, trade, and external affairs officials with their U.S. counterparts.
