Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon establishes pollution program WASHINGTON r dent Nixon Wednesday estab- lished a program requiring in- dustries Lo obtain federal per- mits for discharging anything into virtually any of the water- ways of the United States. 'Hie permits would be based upon certification from state and interstate- agencies that a discharge meet s appropriate water quality standards. The new Environmental Protection Agency will in effect have a veto power. EPA Administrator William B. E.uckeishaus also made clear that his agency would base its .judgments partly upon effluent guidelines spell out the nature of materials being dis- charged, rather Ulan the ulti- mate quality of the receiving waters. The executive order signed loday by N'ixon, requires all ex- isting estimated future discharges, expected to increase by about a year, to obtain state or interstate certification and, on that basis, a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. The engineers arc to publish in the next few days proposed regulations, allowing '13 days for public comment before placing the permit system into effect. Applications for permits for existing discharges will have to be filed by July Corporations Act effective on March 31 OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment served notice Wednesday that most of the requirements of new company law on disclosure of financial affairs will come into effort March 31, Amendments to the Canada Corporations Act, passed by Parliament in October after prolonged discussion and many revisions, will require both pri- vately-flwned and public compa- nies with federal charters to re- port financial affairs in more detail. Federally-incorporated com- j panics with assets worth more than ?5 million or revenue of million will have to disclose fin- ancial results starting with the fiscal year covered in annual meetings from March 31 on- wards. More financial information on major privately-owned compa- nies, including foreign-owned subsidiaries such as General Motors of Canada Ltd., would become public under the new requirements. Tlie new law also is designed to strengthen the rights of shareholders and the responsi- bilities of corporate officers and directors. The government, announce- ment, issued by Corporate Af- fairs Minister Ron Basford, gives federally-incorporated companies until July 31 to insti- tute another requirement of the new law that s company en- gaged in more than one cate- gory of business publish ac- counts showing a breakdown of revenue according to the class of business. Mr. Basford said the delay in inauguration of most measures until .March 31 and the disclo- sure by class of business until July 31 is designed to give com- panies a chance to become fa- miliar with the provisions and prepare new auditing proce- dures. Draft regulations and the kind of disclosure forms companies Will have to fill out are being distributed and may. be obtained by the general public from the corporate affairs branch in Ot- tawa, Stolen Picasso art recovered NEW YORK (Renter) Two works by Pablo Picasso re- ported stolen from the Solomon R.

War brass didn't see eye-to-eye VARIETY OF USES j Seaweed is used in making cough medicine as well as a surgical thread that dissolves and does not have to be remo- ved. By HAROLD AlORKLSON LONDON (CP) A switch in control of two little islands off the Newfoundland coast sent a shiver of worry through the wartime Anglo-American high command anxious to maintain good relations with the French Vichy regime. When the Free French seized St. Pierrc-Miquelon in a coup d'etat, U.S. State Secretary Cor- dell Hull let the Combined Chiefs of Staff know in 1942 that he would like to see the British government re-establish t h e state quo. The Americans were worried (hat otherwise the Vichy regime may tlu-ow out U.S. "observers" from France and North Africa, turn over French ships and, bases to Nazi Germany and col-1 laborate with [lie Japanese in the south Pacific. Field Marshal Sir John Dill, heading the British side of the combined chiefs, "agreed with the importance of retaining re- lations with the Vichy French." He also had in mind "the dan- ger of the French fleet and bases being turned over to Ger- mans as well as losing impor- tant information should the con- suls and observers be ejected." Details of this high-placed concern pop up as the lid is lifted on 100 volumes of hitherto secret and somewhat starched deliberations of tin's all-powerful wartime body. The documents, with their a war conducted from an ivory tower or of judgments handed down remote from the emotion and upheaval of the battlefield. Occasionally there is the acid comment indicating that British and American generals didn't always see eye to eye on grand strategy. Occasionally, too, the dominance of American politi- cal power emerges even to the point where that oft-quoted per- sonal friendship between the late prime minister Mackenzie careful legalistic pronounce- King and president Franklin ments. convey the impression of I Boosevelt is brushed aside.

(CP) Provincial police reported yesterday what they said was the first fata! hit-and-run snow- mobile accident on record in the province. A jwlice in thi.s outpost on Ungara Bay, 800 miles northeast of Quebec, said a 52-year-old Eskimo man was killed after being run down a few miles outside the settle- ment.

For example, in 1944 Macken- zie King wanted the Allies to ac- knowledge publicly that the su- preme commanders in Europe derived their authority over Ca- nadian troops directly from the Canadian government. But the combined chiefs recorded in their secret docu- ments that Roosevelt vAnted it made clear that the supreme commanders got their authority through the combined chiefs and not directly from the gov- ernments. CHANGES MIND Then follows a paragraph in which Mackenzie King is de- scribed as saying he no longer wanted any public statement. He merely wanted the com- manders to be notified that they exercised their command over the Canadian troops "with the full authority of the Canadian government.'' This request was repeated to the president, who had no fur- ther reservations and the Brit- ish m i 1 i t a r y chiefs recom- mended that the commanders get a directive along the revised Mackenzie King line. Another incident throwing light on the Canadian relation- ship to the powerful combined chiefs developed in January. 19-15. The 1 i b e r a t e d French forces wanted Canada lo pro- vide equipment for two French infantry divisions. But Canada couldn't reach an immediate decision because it didn't know the c o m b i n e d chiefs' equipment policy. The Canadian joint staff in Washing- ton was asked to inquire and fi- nally got the combined word that Canada can join in supplying the French with prior- ities to be determined by the European supreme commander.
