Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THI VCTHBUOOI HMAIP Twwtay, Otctmbw 12, If72 Losing his majority changes Trudeau European Security Conference Finally, it appears there is to be a full scale European Security Con- ference. It is planned for 1973, fol- lowing the exhaustive preliminary now going on in Helsinki, be- tween 32 European nations, plus Can- ada and the United States. it was in 1S54 thai Russia first soushz 2. too level conference to deal with matters affecting European sec- urity. Western powers opposed, as they believed the Russian inten- tion simply to try to legitimize Soviet hegemony over Eastern Eur- ope, the division of Germany, and a Russian notary presence in Europe. They felt thai even dis- cnssins these things might be inter- was temporary. Relations between Foissia and _the West, at that time, were aptly des- cribed as a state of "Gold John Foster Dulles, the exponent of brlnksznanship.. was the architect of U.S. foreign "policy, then as now a dominant factcr in Europe. The prin- cipal instrument of Russian foreign Tjolicy. as far as anyone knew, was the Cominfoirn: Nik- jra Shrushchev, recent winner of the power struggle thai followed Stalin's death in 1S53. was an unknown qoan- trtv outside Russia, DestalnizatioTi had not yet bees heard of. There was no Warsaw Fact, no European Ccmmcn Market. The Berlin Wall was still seven years in the futore- MHitarily, Russia was beginning to emerge as a nuclear power. She had detonated her first hydrogen bomb, and was fast developing the long- range rockstry that was soon to orbit Sutnlk, Esr move towards con-mete military parity with tbe tJ.S. was under way. It is a different Europe today. The Cold War seems to be a thing of the past, and there is scarcely any debate about Commnmst domina- tion of Eastern Europe. A pact af- firming the permanent division of Germany is about to'be signed. In military" matters Russia negotiates with the U.S. as an acknowledged equal In general then, it would seem the Soviet have been well rewarded for their long 19 year wait, and that they wilTgo to the European Secur- ity'Conference in far better shape tbss anvone could have predicted in 19-54. Ail is not serene in the Communist world, however. Led by Romania, several of the smaller European na- tions have used the forum provided in Helsinki to issue remarkably stri- dent demands for Independence, for greater recognition of their sovereign- ty in as well as in economic What this means is difficult to say. It is often the case that' 'preliminary1 conferences are arranged to permit just this sort of declamation, to allow the lesser partners to blow off steam, so to speak, before the real powers get down to business. Such statements by normally docile sateliites -are very interesting, nev- ertheless, and if they can be taken at anything approaching face value and. it is by no means certain that they can't add up to a clear gad welcome statement that smaller European nations will not be con- tent "forever to have their affairs settled in Moscow, or in negotiations between. Moscow and. Washington. Men needed There are many boys in Lethbiidge between the ages of six aad 15 who are- being raised without fathers. A recent survey indicates that although mothers are doing an admirable job of raising their sons in a one-parent family they ars the first to admit their sons dreadfully miss a Counsellors, teachers and social workers are also very aware of this need.
