Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g THI IETHBRIDGE HERAlt) Tueidciy, Dcccmhor 7, 1971 Sharp pessimistic ceasefire OTTAWA (CP) Canada would be prepared to partici- pate in any United Nations ob- server group established to oversee a ceasefire between India and Pakistan, External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said Monday. But in a Commons statement and in reply to opposiiion ques- tions, he was pessimistic that any ceasefire soon will be ar- ranged. Mr. Sharp also said Canada will not give diplomatic recogni- tion to Bangla Desh, a provi- sional state comprising East Pakistan and already supported by India. Outside the Commons he de- clined all comment on the de- struction at Islamabad, West Pakistan capital, by Indian jet fighters of a Canadian Twin-Ot- ter plane serving the He was asked by reporters several times whether Canada will file a protest with India. He said he does not yet have all the facts of the incident. There apparently were no cas- ualties when Indian jets strafed and destroyed the plane on the ground. Mr. Sharp said he hopes tire UN Security Council can act de- cisively to stop the war. Matters had not yet reached the point where the Security Council should throw in the sponge. Any reference of the matter to the UN General Assembly was unlikely to settle the war. Mr. Sharp said there are 1.100 Canadians in India and 310 in Pakistan, 40 of these in East Pakistan. A Canadian Hercules trans- port plane was trying to evacu- ate refugees from Dacca in East Pakistan. Mr. Sharp said neither India nor Pakistan is disposed to do anything at the moment except continue hostilities. Prime Minister Trudcau had been in frequent consultation in recent months with the Indian and Pakistani leaders. Efforts by individual Com- monwealth countries to try to settle the dispute had been re- jected. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker suggested Canada summon the Indian ajid Paki- stani leaders to Ottawa in the same way that President Theo- dore Roosevelt sclttal the Rus- so-Japanese war in Such a move would have no chance whatever of success, Mr. Sharp replied. Canada had urged patience and restraint on India. It had also asked Pakistan to restore representative government, especially in East Pakistan. David lewis, NDP loader, said world war will come a step closer if the India-Pakistan hos- tilities attract the forces of China and Russia. MITCHELL SHARP Pins hopes on UN Israel prepared to resume talks UNITED NATION'S (AP) Israel called today for an end of preconditions and "semantic ob- stacles" which it said had been responsible for stalling Middle East peace negotiations. Abba Eban, Israeli foreign minister, told the United Na- tions General Assembly that his government is ready to resume talks both on an interim Suez Canal settlement and on a gen- eral peace agreement if it could be done without prior coi li- tions. Eban made it clear, however, that he would not accede to Egypt's demands that Israel make an advance commitment on troops withdrawals to a par- ticular line in advance of nego- tiations. In opening the Middle East debate Friday, Egyptian For- eign Minister Mahinoud Riad called for use of UN enforce- ment measures, generally i known as sanctions, to compel Israel to withdraw its forces j from Arab territory occupied in the 1967 war. Eban said negotiations under UN peace envoy Gunnar V. Jar- ring had been broken off bo- cause of Egypt's insistence that Israel accept a memorandum drawn up by Jarring. This memorandum reL-ommended that Israel withdraw its forces "to the former international boundary between Egypt and the British mandate of Pales- tine." He said Egypt too had re- jected some of Jarring's recom- mendations. Eban called for a return to the original terms laid down in the UN Security Council's reso- lution of Nov. 22. 1967. the Jarring mission Ire freed from the terms which have impeded its work for 10 IK said. "Let there be an end to the futile exercises of trying to achieve ahead of the negotiations those things which only the negotiation itself can settle and resolve." (Board taxes hotel for free beer OTTAWA (CP) A Calgary j hotel has been pcnr.ilted to charge th? cost of carpets for ils. women's beverage room as pre-tax business expense- but net worth o[ free beer for Us customers. The tax appeal board made the ruling in l.he case of Alexan- dra Hotel (1900) Ltd., which ob- jected to an assessment by the national revenue department. The hotel argued that it spend in to refurbish its bar Icungo and two beer par- lors, in line with requirements of the Alberta Liquor Control Board. Included were new wall and ceiling finishes, new light- ing fixtures, and a carpet for the floor of the ladies beer par- lor. The hotel wanted to charge the whole amount as a business expense in 1968. But the board said seme of the new furnish- ings were mere elaborate than they need be, and were of suffi- cient lasting quality that they should be written off against in- come over a period of years. Named treasurer WASHINGTON (AP) With no expressed opposition, the Se- nate confirmed Monday the nomination of Romana Acosta Banuelos to be treasurer of the United States. The nomination of Mrs. Banuelos became con- troversial agents of the U.S. Immigration Service raided her Los Angeles business and arrested 36 illegal aliens among her employees. POPULATION FIGURE Spain and ils African territo- rics had a total population of as of Dec. 30, 1970, i government statistics showed. CARPET AN EXCEPTION The board made an exception for the carpet, however. It said carpeting in such a place under- goes unusual wear and tear, and has to be replaced every couple of years. So the said the hotel could charge carpeting expense for 19GS. In the case of the free beer, the hotel said it bad supplied worth of the brew to patrons of the beer parlor "as a gesture of goodwill, very often the careless- ness or awkwardness of other beer originally paid for by the customer had been overturned and wasted." The revenue department dis- allowed hut of fi'pc beer expense item in the hold's tax return. The board said the hotel pvo- duced no vouchers or other proof of the amount of beer served its patrons without charge.
