Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August Population conference adopts plan for family-planning aid From AP-REUTER BUCHAREST (CPi The United Nations population con- ference ended Friday with all but the Vatican delegation ap- proving a world plan to guide countries in solving population problems. The plan stresses the need to place population policies in a to- tal picture with general social and economic development, and nowhere suggests that the world may be endangered by an ex- pected doubling of its population by the end of the century. Although actual curbing of family size is not highlighted, the plan does implicitly support contraception, abortion and sterilization. R.T. Ravenholt. a director of the U.S. Agency for Inter- national Development, said he anticipated mounting requests for family-planning aid from all areas of the underdeveloped ENGINEERING AIDES Positions have become available in our Calgary Joint Interest and Engineering Operations for graduates of the S.A.I.T. or N.A.I.T.

Both Brazil and Mexico spoke out in favor of birth control. UN officials at the conference said the aid budget of the UN Fund for Population Activities would probably double in the next few years from its present million a year. The chief United States delegate. Health Secretary Caspar Weinberger, called it "an excellent plan adapted to the needs of many nations." The Canadian delegation welcomed it warmly. Delegates from 141 countries hammered out the plan during the 12-day conference, the first major governmental meeting to deal with the issue. It was approved by general consensus as the meeting went into its last day. The Vatican spokesman said the Roman Catholic Church re- jected the plan because it "cannot compromise" its position against birth control by any but natural means. Small village selected as capital of republic LISBON (Reuter) The small village of Madina do Boe. set in the almost deserted hinterland, will be the capital of the republic of Guinea-Bissau which Portugal Will recognize Sept. 10. the newspaper Diario de Noticias said Friday. The village has been chosen by the African party for the independence of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde islands in preference to the present administrative capital of Bissau on the coast. The plan says that "all couples and individuals have the basic- human right to decide freely and responsibly the number and spacing of their children and to have the information, education and means to do so." Rev. Henri de Riedmatten, deputy chief Vatican delegate, said privately that drafting of the Vatican statement of dissent "was not done entirely from here." In presenting the statement to the two-week conference, dele- gation leader Bishop Edouard Gagnon. a native of Port Daniel. Que and rector of the Canadian College in Rome, said it appeared to many that his best course would be simply to ac- cept the plan with reservations. "We are not at liberty to take that he added. The main objection was the plan's implicit support for con- traception, and the consequent risk of "indiscriminate recourse LEARN BASIC INCOME TAX PREPARATION Thousands are .earning good money as tax preparers.

The Holy See opposed these methods and "cannot compromise at all on such principles. the very nature of the Holy See forbids any compromise." The action plan stresses the basis for an effective solution of population problems is above all 'socio-economic transforma- tion." and that population policies can only be considered as one aspect of general development. Other provisions of the lO.OOOword plan deal with the rights and status of women, international migration, health, edu- cation and the monitoring and review of population trends and policies by the United Nations. Only the most general guidelines were set for desirable rates of population growth. Several delegations called the plan "a constructive com- promise."
