And Canada had company as the United States under Pres id en t Nixon broke sharply with traditional pat- terns, notably on initiatives penetrating the lengthy freeze in contact with the People's Republic of China. Excessive, dependence on existing relationships, includ- ing NATO, has been a prime target of Prime Minister Tru- dcau's government. Persistently, foreign policy was used, for reasons of na- tionai self-intcrest among I other things, to foster new I tics, some spelling concern I about any undue political, economic or other- by the U.S. The formula appeared i prominent in nn exchange of j v'siis between Mr. Trudeau and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin, one highlight of for- eign affairs in 1971. Mr. Trudeau had begun the year with a 24-day visit to Asia, specifically for the Com- r.nnwealth prime ministers conference in Singapore but also touching India, Indone- sin, Pakistan and Iran among otbers. He interrupted a vacation in Yugoslavia when the U.S. steps to halt its balance-of- launche s cancer crusade WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon Tliursday signed leg- islation launching a Sl.G-billion federal crusade to conquer can-1 cer. He said it is the start of an unprecedented effort to climi-! note "a long shadow of fear that darkens even" corner of the earth." i At a ceremony in the White House, Nixon affixed his signa- j lure to the National Cancer Act and said the bill, ''perhaps j i more than any legislation 11 j have signed can mean new i hope and comfort in the years ahead for millions of people in i this country and around the i world.'1 I The measure gives the 34- i year-old National Cancer lute a mandate to increase re- j search efforts into the causes of and cures for cancer. The legislation also estah- lishos a 23-member national j cancer advisory board and a three-member president's can- I rrr pane! which will report to i th''! White House on execution of; tlic- program. I Nixon used the occasion to an- n o u n c e the appointment of Rcnno C. Schmidt, a New York j businessman, to serve as chair- man of the advisory board. Schmidt Ls managing partner in J. H. Whitney and Co. and director of several other corpo- rations. The legislation authorizes SI .6 i billion for cancer research by i the institute during the next three years, including mil- lion in the current fiscal year, million in fiscal 1973 start- ing July 1, and 5600 million in 197-1. Last year the institute re- ceived S232 million. Teachers criticize compulsion The Teachers' Asso- ciation has criticized the pro- vincial government for invok- ing compulsory arbitration to bring the strike of G13 teach- ers in the Bow Valley area to an abrupt end. In a press release, the ATA said, "We believe that this in- tervention in the collective bar- gaining process has ramifica- tions as a precedent far Ircyond teacher board negotiations "We believe the government decision to intervene would have been better implement- ed by the temporary replace- ment of the school boards by official trustees who could have resolved the dispute at. tlie bar- gaining table.'1 The government's decision to step into the dispute came after the teachers rejected, for the second time, a contract offer by the trustees. Tlie teachers have been on strike since Nov. 29. a aini Venture UNIQUE NEW WAY TO PERMANENT SELF EMPLOYMENT WITH EXECUTIVE LEVEL INCOME!

Canadian recognition and consequent, support for Pe- king's UN membership, set of" a host of similar moves by other countries. China was ad- milled to the UN and the Chinese Nationalists left. The net effect was to bring China into the mainstream of world affairs and make it a force to be reckoned wilh in- ternationally.

Ironically, the combination of Mr. Trudcau's May visit lo the Soviet Union and Premier Kosygin's October visit to Canada straddled an event straining Canada-U.S. rela- tions. President Nixon's mid-Au- gust announcement of a spe- cial 10-per-cent import sur- charge and other measures to bolster the U.S. economy hit Canada hard since each coun- try is the other's best cus- i'jme-r. Questions had already been raised about trans-border dif- rerenccs based on reduced Ca- nadian enthusiasm for collec- tive defence arrangements, reluctance to accept a conti- nental energy agreement and other issues. But Mr. Trudeau returned from a one-day meeting in Washington Dec. 6 asserting a Deaths Yesterday By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oberammcrgau, West Ger- Lang, 89, who por- trayed Jesks and other biblical characters from 1930 lo 1900 in tlie Obcrammergau passion play, performed every 10 years.

Con- sultations intensified on mu- tual trade irritants. Later, External Affairs Min- ister Mitchell Sha7T> made plain Canada adheres firmly lo NATO efforts to force Ihe Soviet Union to talk in detail about mutual European troop reductions. in dealings wilh ii-s other huge neighbor, the U.S.S.H., the mosl tangible results of Ihe reciprocal Trudeau-Kosy- gin visils" were a protocol on political consultation and a general agreement on cultural and scientific exchanges. MAY VISIT CHINA Earlier, a far-reaching agreement had been arrived at calling for co-operation in the industrial application of science and technology. Mr. Trudeau, defending the protocol signed in Moscow in May, told Parliament it went some distance toward placing Canadian-Soviet consultations on the same basis as Cana- dian consultations with ihe U.S., Britain and Japan. While in no way diluting its friendship wilh traditional al- lies, Canada under his leader- ship had taken a fresh look at the world. "Areas which have not in tbe past figured prominently in Canada have been smiyhl out consciously as friends, as prospective trading partners, as sources of information and advice, as contributors to an independent Can- ada not overwhelmingly domi- nated by any one state or group of states." Tlie reference to trade rep- resented empjiasis tlie govern- ment places on domestic eco- nomic growth and increased exports. Canada now holds .some competitive advantage in the potentially huge Soviet and Chinese markets. In the cards for 1972, barring election tim- ing or some other event, is a Peking visit by Mr. Trudeau. New device controls speed cur s TOKYO (Reutcr) Japa- nese police will start testing early in a new device to control arbitrarily the speed cf motor vehicles. If successful, officials see this as Ihe ultimate weapon to beat speeders. The system consists of a de- vice fitted to a vehicle's car- buretor system to control the flew of fuel and a line laid be- neath the road surface to emit radio signals that arc picked up by the carburetor's re- ceiver. In built-up areas in Japan tile maximum speed limit is 24 miies an hour, which is vir- tually ignored by the vast ma- jority of c'.rivers. There are few motorized police to trap the speeders. The carburetor device would restrict the flow of fuel to produce a maximum speed of 24 miles an hour. No matter how hard the frustrated driver stamps on Ihe accelerator, he will not be able to go any faster. A second radio line at the end cf the restricted area will de-activale the device to allow unhampered fuel flow. The tests, expected to start in la'e January to early Feb- ruary, are designed to obtain data for administrate study, as officials say tectaieally the device lias already been proved to work. k ASPHALT PAVING TOUESTRUP Construction Co. ltd.
