Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta y, 17, 1970 THE tETHBRIOGE HERALD Canada plays big role in UN Assembly affairs UNITED NATIONS (CP) The silver anniversary session of the 127-country United Na- tions General Assembly was scheduled to end today with most countries feeling a mix- ture of disillusionment and achievement. The session was one of the most unusual in the 25-year his- tory of the world organization. It is doubtful that any two assessments of the three months of talk that started Sept. 15 would agree. Secretary-General U Thant had seen the session as an op- portunity for summitry. But it soon became apparent that only Ottawa salary scales OTTAWA (CP) Minister Trudeau would get a year instead of his present under a rec- ommendation made Monday by a special committee inves- tigating MPs' salaries. And he would not have to pay the annual rent he now contributes toward up- keep of his official residence at 24 Sussex Drive, Ottawa. Mr. Trudeau now gets a year as an MP, of it tax free; a salary of as prime minister and a annual car allow- ance, also tax-free. The committee recom- mended that beginning in the next Parliament an MP's pay be set at a year, none of it tax-free, that the prime minister's salary be retroactive to Oct. and that the car allowance be eliminated and replaced by a government-supplied vehicle. Total pay of other officials would be: Cabinet ministers other than prime none of it tax-free, instead of of which is tax- free. Leader of 000 instead of Ministers without portfolio instead of Commons instead of Deputy Commons Speaker instead of Deputy chairman of com- mittees, chief government and opposition whips, leaders ol oilier parties besides official opposition, parliamentary sec- instead o f Opposition House instead of Senate in- stead of Senate Opposition instead of Senate Deputy Speaker and deputy government instead of Senate deputy opposition instead o some of the major powers would send their leaders for lop-level talks and the East- West cold war made such talks impossible. One highly-respected Western diplomal said that the assembly saw evidence of a growing feel- ing that violence is the solution to political problems. But the assembly had some notable achievements. Canadian Ambassador Yvon Bcaulne and many others feel that the first these must be the Declara- on of the Strategy of the Sec- nd Development Decade. This committed many govern nents, those such as Canada lat have given aid for years, nd the Soviet bloc which has iven little, to the principle oi ncreasing help for the underde- cloped. The strategy was a triumph or Canada, for it had much to o with its formulation. And the assembly saw Com- mnist China make a great tridc towards membership ere. The assembly for the first ime gave a majority to a reso- ution calling for the expulsion f Nationalist China and its re- ilacement with the Commun- 5tS. Claim drugs planted in house OTTAWA (CP) Justice Minister John Turner told the Commons ha would investigate a charge that the ROMP co- operated with Moose Jaw, Sask., police who "planted" drags in a house. He was replying to John Sko- jerg who said" the Moose Jaw CBC tele- vision station reported that city police had carried out the op- eration and that "the RCMP were a party to this investiga- tion." Mr. Skoberg said the TV sta- tion had placed a tape recorder on the man "being asked to plant the drug" and asked Mr. Turner to inspect the tape for evidence of the incident. Mr. Turner said he would not accept the substance of question but would "look into it to see whether it merits a report to the house." Dr. McGregor gets U post EDMONTON (CP) Dr. John R: McGregor has been appointed dean of graduate studies at the University of Al- berta to succeed retiring dean Dr. A. G. McCalla, the uni- versity announced today. The appointment is effective July 1. Dr. McGregor, now professor and head of the mathematics department, joined the staff in 1959 and became head of the department in 1966. ______ The majority was not enough for passage of the resolution; two-thirds of the voles was re- quired. But most of the world's major the Middle East crisis to Vietnam-came no closer to a real solution AMBASSADOR HAPPY Beaulnt told reporters happy with the work of the Ca- nadian mission. He said there was approval of a treaty to disarm the seabed agreement on a Treaty of Friendly Relations-which codi- fied much international law- progress in the field of environ- ment and approval of Canada's proposals on the streamlining of the UN procedures. Canada played a critical role in getting broad agreement for holding the conference.

Also in the area of peace and security, Canada had taken a major role in de-fusing a Soviet proposed Declaration on Mea- sures for the Strengthening of International Security.
