Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE lErllBHIDGE HERALD Saturday, Decombor 5, 1970 PIPES ARE HIS BAG-Sean Conroy, 10, is so good on Ihe bagpipes lhat the newly- reconstituted Toronto Scottish Regiment cadet corps has bent its regulations to let him play.

Yves Michaud, Quebec com- missioner-general for co-opera- tion, has advised Pierre Laur- ent, head of the French foreign ministry's cultural, scientific and technical affairs division, that the project might prove too costly and that other means could be foiuid, they added. Michaud, special adviser lo Quebec Premier Robert Bour- assa, is heading a six-man dele- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Denial Mechanic Metropolila-n Bldg. 328-4095 gallon to a week-long meeting of the permanent Franco- Quebec Co-operalion Commis- sion. The subject of Ihe satellite does not figure on the commis- sion's agenda, but Michaud put his government's vie s in semi-official talks. He empha- sized that the project still is under study by the Quebec com- munications department. EXCHANGED IDEAS In an exchange of letters in January, 1969, former premier Jean-Jacques Bertrand in- formed Jean de Lipkowski, a deputy undersecretaiy in the French foreign office, that the Quebec government agreed to study Quebec's participation in the building and launching of a satellite for French-speaking idea first mooted by the late Gen. ric Gaulle and the late Quebec Premier Daniel Johnson. Michaud now has explained that the present Quebec govern- INGER'S CERAMICS STUDIO 'Things to do and how to do Ihem' JOIN IN THE WOfilD'S MOST FASCINATING HOBBY EVENING and AFTERNOON CtASSES Phone 328-2189 ment thinks that with the six- hour time lag between France f.nd Quebec, the advent of the supersonic airliner would re- duce interest in the satellite project. He noted that at a time when supersonic airliners would take less than three hours to fly be- tween Paris and Montreal, it might be cheaper to use the sys- tem of video electronic casettes. Programs could be recorded at noon in Paris and flown to Montreal for broadcast at 9 a m. local time, he said. The Quebec government's new attitude has somewhat upset French plans, one official said. The French had hoped that Quebec should join in the building of a Franco-German te- lecommunications satellite known as Symphonic due to be launched in 1974, or in another satellite beamed to French- speaking countries of Africa. Ottawa maintains that tele- communications is a federal re- sponsibility and that the French government should deal directly with the Canadian government on any such matters. Former Quebec governments maintained tiiat the proposed satellite would serve as a cul- tural instrument lo promote closer relations and came within the scope of the provin- cial government.

Angry western diplomats hurl charges UNITED NATIONS (CP) Angry Western diplomats charged Thursday that the So- viet.

(AP) A physicist says a thermonuclear lest explosion scheduled soon off Alaska could start a major earthquake and a trans-Pacific tidal wave. Dr. George Sweig o! the Cali- fornia Institute of Technology said Thursday the Atomic PJn- ergy Commission test scheduled 'within tile next few months" under the Aleutian Island of Anichilka could produce a seri- ous artificial earthquake. He told a group of scientists at Scripps Institution of Ocean- ography that he estimates the blast would create an carth- o_uake registering between 7 and 7.25 by the Richter scale. Natural earthquakes of this magnitude in the same Aleutian vicinity, he added, have in turn triggered bigger tremors of equal or greater force than the quake that hit Alaska in 1964. "It may be that the next nu- clear explosion could trigger an earthquake of this Sweig said. A m c h i t k a Island, he ex- plained, is astride one of the Windsor Star can't publish WINDSOR, Ont.

Tlie newspaper, which nor- mally prints three editions daily, published none Wednes- day for the first time in 52 years. It has produced only one edition on each of four of the last seven publishing days. In a state m e n t here, The Star advised that it would not be asking workers to report for duty until a settlement has been reached "because the news- paper cannot publish."

'Driven lo drinking parties' Recreation programs needed MAYERTHORPE, Alta. recreational facilities youth arc "driven to get their enjoyment out of drinking parties" through lack of other things to do, Coroner M. M. Cantor said in comment- ing on the deaths of two resi- dents of the Alexis Indian Re- serve.
