That included revision of the 1965 auto pro- duction agreement, which has wiped out the chronic Cana- dian trade deficit in Uie auto- motive industry at the ex- pense of fashioning a U.S. def- icit. On the immediate face value, the Washington meet- ing produced a dramatic turn-round in the temperature of the relationship. Many Ca- nadians including Parlia- ment's opposition parties had viewed the relationship as being at a long-time low. Apart from specific inci- dents. Mr. Trudeau had been soundly criticized by opposi- tion forces for waiting four months before meeting with Mr. Nixon on the American economic measures, launched to halt the balance-of-pay- ments drain Weeding the U.S. economy since the early 1960s. And he also received some lumps for net making per- sonal representations to the president over the controver- sial U.S. nuclear underground test on Amchitka Island. That was an emotion-tinged issue with broad public ramifica- tions and the Commons itself approved a motion protesting the blast, a rare all-party ac- cord. CHINA STAND OPPOSED The apparent lack of enthu- siasm for visiting Washington was associated by some Tru- deau critics with remarks he made during a May visit lo Moscow about Canada having to guard against the eco- nomic, cultural and military might of the U.S. He was heavily criticized for making this remark about the U.S. on a Russian plat- form. Then in October, when Russian Premier Alexei Kosy- gin returned the visit, the So- viet premier before an Ottawa audience took some stiff potshots at American eco- nomic policies for their im- pact on Canada. About the same time, the Canadian government was an- nouncing it would oppose a U.S. resolution in the United Nations calling for a two- China policy. Instead, Canada would support an Albania res- olution favoring the seating of Communist Peking gov- ernment. In the midst of the eco- nomic crisis, the National En- ergy Board rejected an annli- cation to export 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas lo I he U.S. It was badly wanted there. The independent board turned down the application mi the grounds that Canada's known reserves weren't big enough to allow such a sale. But this didn't prevent the de- cision from being viewed, by some, in the over-all political context. POSED THREAT These various irritants would have been less noticea- ble without the U.S. economic the 10-per-cent import surcharge threatened to play havoc with Canada at a time of relatively high unemploy- ment. As various economic annoyances surfaced on both sides of the border, if became clear that hard bargaining lay ahead. Before Mr. Trudeau made his trip to Washington, he had suggested in a statement that Americans seem to know or care little about Canada. But he also had said: "Our relationship with the U.S. is so broad and so deep and so close that it cannot be duplicated with any other country." I Other cabinet ministers were going around the coun- try, and into the U.S.. lo make similar comments. Sen- ator Paul Martin, government leader in the Senate and for- mer external affairs minister, told a Detroit audience that economic difficulties between the two countres were only a quiver in the traditional friendly relationship. But until Mr. Trudeau had his friendly chat with Mr. Nixon, there was far more talk of annoyances than agreements. Breach of courtesy Six in custody for bank robbery OTTAWA (CP) The Rus- sian admiral didn't mind Cana- dian warships shadowing Iris powerful, seven-vessel task force, bul lie did think their de- corum left something to be de- sired. "International should pay respects to your sen- was the message beamed lo Hie Canadian destroyer es- cort Qu'Appelie as it moved in unceremoniously for a close look at the task force flagship, a missile cruiser. The message was signed: "Soviet admiral." The two-week shadowing op- erations, conducted by three Ca- nadian vessels against a seven ship Soviet flotilla late last sum- mer off the Aleutian islands and southward, is recounted in Sen- tinel, the armed forces maga- zine. The account by Qu'Appelie skipper, Cmdr. John Rodocana- o'.ii, says his warship quickly put right the breach of high seas courtesy alleged by the So- viet admiral. "Within 24 hours, the Soviet force having anchored the Qu'Appelle was able to repair her lapse when she passed close by the anchored cruiser in the fog and piped the side. The pipe was returned." IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY Despite apparent good humor on both sides, however, Cmdr. Rodocanacbi finds the lengthy high-seas surveillance episode disquieting for what it says Although the Canadians re- ceived a friendly farewell from the Soviet fleet after dogging it from the Aleutians to Hawaii, "we had been most impressed by the powerful task force of modtrn, heavily-armed he writes. "Assuming this is but the start of a continuing pattern for the future as the Soviet Union claims her place in the sun as a premier maritime power, we can probably expect even closer approaches fo Canadian waters by the Russian ships."

By JOAQUIN MARTINEZ HAVANA (API Next week Cuba will enter the 1451i year of unchallenged rule by Fidel Cas- tro. Since he came to power Jan. 1, 1959, he has antagonized scores of governments, become a hero or villain to millions around the world, caused a massive exodus of compatriots and retained a charisma among friends and foes seldom matched by contemporary poli- ticians. Tlie basic question is: Has his rale benefited his countrymen? There is no easy answer, but for many Castroism undoubt- edly has meant ascent from the direct poverty to at least the foundations of a promised better tomorrow. The Cuban's life is regimented, but he has the right to a guaranteed job, free health service and other social im- provements which formerly gathered dust in the law books or did not exist at all. HEALTH CARE FREE In was not allowed to travel to other told me they no longer spend a penny on health services, in- cluding full maternity treatment from the first month of preg- nancy to post-delivery attention. Drugs are dispensed free. From kindergarten through university schooling is free, in- cluding textbooks and materi- als. Illiteracy, it is claimed, has been stamped out through a widespread campaign. Many rural workers formerly found work only during the short winter cane-cutting sea- son. Now they are offered year- round employment. STRESS TECHNOLOGY In the cities, the regime offers free adult education, especially stressing technical courses. These courses are encouraged because the exodus of Cuban technocrats to the United States mainland. Puerto Rico, Vene- zuela and elsewhere drained Cuban know-how almost to the bottom of the barrel. Those Cubans in urban areas may live in their own homes or rent from a state that acts ss a Inure landlord. Rents are incredibly low by Western standards: 10 per cent of the tenant's salary. On the other hand, the tenant may not be able to live in the building he wants. "lTainlcnancc is virtually j non-extent. I There are hundreds of free public telephones in Havana. Children enjoy free summer I camps. Pensions arc paid regu- i lorly. There is no admission charge at sports events. The average wage-earner I have met during two weeks in Havana did not seem to make more than an average of 250 pesos a month. The peso is, the- oretically, on a par with the dol- lar, although one can risk sell- ing a dollar for 25 pesos on the black market. LITTLE TO SPEND ON However, with low rents and rationed foods, there is not much the Cuban can do with left-over pesos. This has encour- aged an active black market in foods and hard goods. In a government-operated nightclub a bottle of half- strength rum cost 55 pesos. A scoop of ice cream goes for 30 centavos, officially equal to 30 cents. A chicken can be bought from a country laborer for 50 pesos. plentiful but now five to 10 pesos each. The overfall domestic result of Castro's rule has been an in- verted sense of values. If Castro was massive Russian raise the standard of living.he did, at least, erode it lo a certain com- mon denominator. "Now we all eat the same a man told me as we dis- cussed rationing. And there are always the promises of a brighter future, even if they come year after year. Paper company branches out VANCOUVER (CP) Crown Zellerbach Canada Ltd.
