Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, December 22, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 17 United Nations is place for man to help man UNITED NATIONS (CP) There is an old saying thai if Uiere was no UN today, one would have to be created tomor- row. Now there is a new saying: The UN became indispensable before it became possible. Both appear to be correct. The United Nations has achieved little in the last 25 years to eliminate the scourge of war. Many diplomats, while admitting that, add that if the world organization could not stop all wars, it probably pre- vented a Third World War. The first saying is quoted fre- quently and with all serious- ness. The second, a self-contradic- tory statement, is quoted with tongue in cheek. The UN events revolving around the war on the Indian subcontinent give it considerable relevancy. The UN is indispensable. It has provided the means for a multitude of humanitarian as- sistance programs. It is the way for man to help man. It is the place to meet and talk: for dif- fering parties to negotiate in a neutral atmosphere; for media- tion to be attempted. It is the only such place in the world. But "United Nations" is a misnomer. The nations of the world are not united. National interests always come first. No country gives up sovereignty ta a significant degree. The inter- national interests of each coun- ti-y are more important to it than those of the world com- munitv. Livestock plan should be widened EDMONTON (CP) -The provincial government's guar- anteed loan program for the purchase of female cattle and sheep should be extended to include southern Alberta, Bill Wyse, Social Credit member of the legislature for Medicine Hat Redrliff, said today. CHARWOMEN HAVE THEIR DAY tabor Minister Bryce Mackasey joins in dancing for annual Christmas party of charwomen in the Parliament Buildings at Ot- tawa. His partners are Mrs. Frances Kurinski (left) and Mrs. Alma Boyer. The charwomen gave Mr. Mackasey a gift for Prime Minister Trudeau, but wouldn't disclose what it was. Pearl in stew BURLEY, Idaho (AP) Ar- chie Rudolph of Eurley found something unusual in his oyster stew, but he didn't complain. Rudolph, who says he has been eating oysters nearly every for most of Ms 71 years, is Hashing a large pearl he found in his stew. A local jeweler says it is worth about More Pakistani diplomats defect The pilot project was an- nounced earlier this year for the Peace River area and la- ter extended to the Barrhead district. Under the program, farmers and ranchers wishing to pur- chase female cattle and sheep for breeding purposes can ap- ply to the chartered banks and provincial treasury branches for government guarante e d loans. The minimum loan is and the maximum with the exception of a partnership or corporation, where the max- imum is Mr. Wyse said in a prepared statement that many farmers and ranchers in southern Al- berta are interested in increas- ing their herds and production, but lack sufficient collateral for financing and could benefit un- der the program. Trial ordered 111 prof's death CALGARY (CP) Elmer Fuhrer, charged with the non- capital murder of a University of Alberta physical education professor, was committed for trial at the end of a prelim- inary hearing. Robert Henry Routledgc, 53, died April 25, 1970, from a cut throat when he was attacked outside the hotel room in which lie and his wife were staying. IMPASSE ON INDOPAK The Security Council had a hopeless task when it attempted to get a ceasefire in the India- Pakistan war. Talk and meet- ings went on night after night, inside the council chamber and out. But all was useless. The interest of the Soviet Un- ion was an Indian victory. The interest of China and the U.S. was Indian defeat, or at least withdrawal. There was no hope of compromise. Nothing showed more clearly that the big powers run the world. There was a massive 104-lo-ll ,'Ote in the General Assembly calling for a ceasefire and with- drawal of troops less than two weeks ago. It was, in the words of Zulfikar Bhutto, now presi- dent of truncated Pakistan, ai world referendum. I But the Soviet Union pre- vented the Security Council, from following the lead of the assembly. The Soviets vetoed anything that would prevent In- dia from finishing the conquest of East Pakistan. China and the U.S. would ac- cept nothing less than total withdrawal. Thus, with big power sides j drawn, nothing could be done. The small countries called in vain for compliance with the Charter provision for respect for the internal sovereignty of a country. BAD TIME FOR UN In all, the India Pakistan war has been a fairly bad time for the UN. There was without doubt vio- lent abuse of human riffhts of civilians in E a s t Pakistan liy West Pakistani forces. In fact, it is probable that nobody will ever know ihe full extent of bloodshed in that unhappy area. But India violated a cardinal principle of international af- fairs: non-interference in the in- ternal affairs of another coun- try. So the UN was caught in tho classic dilemma bet w e e n law and justice and could not solva it. In a the Security Council has established a non-action when the big powers are in disagreement, even when thousands arc This far different from the past. In the Middle East wars, the council could at least call for a ceasefire, even the, super powers were on opposite sides. For the next generation and probably longer, the will of tho majority in the world will be ignored here in time of war. The world must wait many years before the UN is a politi- cal force in world affairs. Meanwhile, jxjrhaps the mis- nomer should lie dispensed with. The world body might he called a ccnsultat i v e council for a time. At least then, people's hopes would not be shattered so often. WINNERS OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA FIREFIGHTERS CURLING ASSOC.

Mr. Taylor said Mr. Hohol is in a position that "commands respect" from both sides and should be able to work out a satisfactory solution. "Had the minister himself got into the fray either beforc the strike was called or right after it could have been seilled Mr. Taylor said It is the first time compul- sory arbitration has used under Section 10G of the Alterta Labor Act, whic-h allows the cabinet to proclaim a state of emergency.
