Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Heath, Trudeau may make joint ceasefire plea LONDON (CP) The India- Pakistan war may reach a cru- cial stage by the time Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada and Prime Minister Heath of Britain discuss the issue at Ottawa and for that reason authorities here feel their expected renewed call for a ceasefire may have more impact than current pleas. The view in British quarters is that in fact neither India nor Pakistan really desire a cease- fire at Uiis moment, with India hoping shortly to solidify its hold on East Pakistan, pai-licu larly Dacca, while Pakistan ex- pects to increase its share of Kashmir. By the time the Anglo-Cana- dian summit takes place Fri- day, Dec. 17, the geographic picture in East Pakistan may crystallize to the point where India at least may be more re- ceptive to the idea of a cease- fire. While authorities here con- clude there is a limit to what Heath and Truricau could jointly hope to achieve on the subconti- nent, there is hope that a joint plea for a ceasefire coming from within the Commonwealth may stir a stronger response, especially if both sides feel their lines of communication and sup- ply have been stretched and their troops exhausted in the battles. But the Asian conflict may play only a small part in the and China also are likely to be discussed, though the fact that Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home isn't going to Ot- tawa suggests these issues may not be explored in much details. The main point, 1! appears, is that Heath wants to touch base in Ottawa to demonstrate Iho continuing Anglo-Canadian rela- tionship before he confers with Nixon. Initially Heath and Trudeau Tnideau-Hcalh conversations. The main issue appears to be on the economic front, within the transatlantic sphere. Heath will want to hear Tru- deau's report on his Washington talks with President Nixon be- fore the Anglo-American sum- mit takes place in Bermuda Dec. 20-21. CONCERNED WITH TRADE They will be concerned about the future of Nixon's foreign trade policy and whether there are any signs of a change in the American trend towards protec- tionism. Trudeau may find there is greater need for strengthening his relations with Heath, not only as a balance against Wash- ington pressures but more so in view of Britain's projected entry to the European Common Market in January, 1972. An Anglo-Canadian continuing trade committee, on the civil service level, is in effect Hie only permanent consultative trade body linking the two conn tries. The question may arise whether this should be strength cned or whether Canada should give more attention to develop- ing a similar body directly with European Common Markel headquarters, perhaps on a ministerial level. Rhodesia, the Middle East Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Thinjis a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Japan has found a new way to solve a pollution turning discarded plastic bot- tles into streets. The bctiles are crushed, melted and then blended with other substances make a street paving mate- rial. The gravitational pull of the moon affects the earth itself as well as the seas. This pull, which causes the tides, can also raise the North American continent half a foot when the moon is directly overhead. No home is entirely safe. For example, of an estimated known toxic sub- stances, at least 40 that can poison or kill can be found in the average household. Some anthropologists be- lieve the human neck is get- ting shorter. Whether tills is physically true, it isn't a bad idea. Certainly few people today want to stick their neck out very far. Good advice: Don't fool around with old golf balls. If pierced, they can explode and maim. Golf balls with liquid cores contain a compound under pressure of up to pounds a square inch. Oink, Oink: Tile lowly pig, despite the low regard in which it is held, is one of the most intelligent of animals. In Polynesia it was used in ear- lier cenluries to locate lost burial places. In France it still is employed to search put truffles. In England during the 1st century it was trained by many hunters to retrieve game. Another smoking peril: Studies by Harvard research- ers indicate that cigarette smokers are more likely to develop cancer of the bladder than nonsmokers. Pipe and cigar smoking showed no such increased risk. Folklore: It is unlucky to point at the moon or try to count the stars. A child born on Sunday will be safe from evil spirits. A bride who fails to cut the wedding cake her- self may wind up clu'ldless. You'll have bad luck if a pic- ture falls from the wall in your home, but only if the glass broken.

Members of Mr. Mnrin's family snid he had suffered from n hcsrt ailment for some time and entered hos- pital two weeks ago. had planned to meet here after Trudeau's visit to Yugoslavia last summer. Because Trudeau had to hurry home, much of his European tour had to be can- celled. Latterly, there had been plans for the meeting to take place in Bermuda before Nixon arrived. But Trudeau begged off, saying he had to stay home because Mrs. Trudeau is expecting her baby this month. Undoubtedly Tnideau and his wife will be urged to visit London as soon as they can and bring their baby with them.

Thuriday, December 9, 1971 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD 3t Andras challenges house designers OTTAWA (CP) Robert An- dras, minister of state for urban affairs Wednesday challenged Canadian designers to give him serious proposals for "truly new and experimental" housing pro- jects. "I am thinking especially of crossing frontiers in the design and physical apportuenances of homes for old people, for public housing tenants, for middle-in- come or any other people in high-density he said. Mr. Andras was speaking at a presentation here of the first Vincent Masscy Awards for ex- cellence in the urban environ- ment. A total of 13 awards were made io 12 Canadian cities for projects such as parks, squares and malls. "I want someone to come to me and say here is a proposal for a housing development for old people that truly under- stands, in infinite detail, what it j is to be he said. Another example might be a multi-story housing building that would include features such as open play space at various floor levels "connected to Hio apartments and the mothers in them by nearness and televi- sion." Mr. Andras said he would like to see one or two pilot projects undertaken in Canada each year with the support of the new urban affairs ministry. Tills would not parallel devel- opment now going on, often sup- ported by Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. H would be In addition to this end "somewhat more adventurous." 'Tho concentration would much more intense on housing for people that considers all their needs, beyond simple shel- ter, "Mr. Andras said.
