For a quarter-cen- tury he rubbed elbows with Russia's most powerful leaders, o s t e n s i h I y one of them but never regarded as much more than a plodding bureaucrat, a party workhorse who served Joseph Stalin. Nikita Khrush- chev and Khrushchev's succes- sors with equal fidelity. The part y congress in ISliB retired him from the rul- ing politburo. Shvernik served through the post-war years until Stalin's death in 1953 as chairman of the presidium of the Supreme Soviet, a ceremonial president without any power. OTTAWA iCl'i On Ihe in- i dustriul front in 1970. the war a g a i n s t inflation appeared largely one of words. An early warning from Fi- nance Minister Kdgar Benson said: "There will be dilticiill wage negotiations." He said in his March budget speech: -'Some of these nego- tiations may issue in strikes .--perhaps fore settlements are reached.'' It would have been a safe pr e d i c I i o n in almost any budget address but organized labor and its allies interpreted that as unnecessary encour- agement to employers to get stingy. Coupled with well founded p r o s p e c t s of in- c reased unemployment, it prompted New Democrat fin- ancial critic Max Saltsman lo brand Mr. Benson as "anti-la- bor.'' The nine months since have added up to what Donald .MacDonald, president of the Canadian Labor Congress, de- scribed in a recent interview a.s "a very tough year in- deed" for workers seeking wage gaiiis. IT I'F.K CK.N'T On the surface, that assess- ment might seem questiona- ble. Latest federal figures show organized workers lo be doing at least as well in bar- gaining this year as in S. Korea seeks Canadian loan SF.OUL l Reiner! The South Korean cabinet approved a plan to borrow S5.8 million from the Kxport Development Corp. of Canada to finance the expansion 'of telephone circuits. Officials said a formal loan agreement would be signed here next week. The government plans lo import facilities from Canada to install telephone circuits between Seoul and four other cities. with little or no extra loss in terms of strike action.

The defence department is ac- tivelv considering the purchase of a heavy tank to replace the ageing Centurion now in serv- ice. Leading contenders are the British Clricflain. the American M-lil and the German Leopard. The ultimate choice is expected to be between the Chieftain and the M-lil. with Ihe American machine apparently enjoying an edge in current calculations. Authoritative s o u r c e s cau- tioned that no firm decision has been taken to draw back from tile plan io convert Canada's NATO force into a lightly- equipped reserve unit with air mobility. However. Defence Minister Donald Macdonald gave a tipoff recently when he said his de- partment was re-examining the cost of the proposed new role. He also suggested that NATO would like Canada to retain its armor and other mechanized equipment. MADK A VISIT Mr. Maedoilald made his statement after returning from his first NATO meeting in Brus- sels and his first visit to Lahr, base of Canada's new land and air contingent in southern Ger- many. The reconfiguration was or- dered by former defence minis- ter Leo' Cadieui and resulted from a government decision lo cut Canada's conti-ibution to NATO by lo 5.000 men from terms of man- power. The mechanized brigade group stationed on Ihe north German plain was withdrawn 400 miles southward to Lahr and transformed into an in- terim, 2.800-man mechanized battle' group. After 1972 it was to become an air-mobile force. Ihe six-squadron air division t itioned at Lahr was dissolved. 8 with its three surviving squad- j rons being transferred from l.ahr Io nearby Baden-Soellin- gen. The air arm is to stirren- ner it-s nuclear strike role after next year. It was understood that the re- view now under way is not j likely to affect the plans laid j down last year for I'.ie air ele- ment. In addition to the Centurion tanks, equipment in the present j ground force includes M-1K1 ar-j mored personnel carriers. M-109 self-propelled I howitzers and Lynx tracked re-1 connaissance vehicles. j CAN STII.L BK USKJ) j These items all have several vears of service left. Canadian tank commanders have long i hoped that the government would replace the 55-ton. Brit- i ish-huill. Centurion with the 52- ton Chieftain. The Chieftain's 120-millimeter gun is said to greater penetration and range than any lank gun on the market. However, some experts are betting on the 52-ton, M-61 as the likely successor to Centurion if one is chosen, because of sup- ply considerations. 'Hie Cana- dian ground force now is in the American sector of Germany whereas formerly it came under the British Army of the Rhine. The other tank in Ihe running, the Leopard, is a 40-tonner. Both Ihe M-61 and the Leopard are equipped with a 105-millime- ler British gun. j Unofficial estimates said about 60 vehicles would be pur- chased of whatever tank might be chosen, at a cost of between and per copy depending to some extent on ar- j rangements for spare parts. i In addition to Europe, a nun> her would be stationed al Camp Gagetown, N.B., for training purposes. view. "I think serious damage lias been done to the belief in an egalitarian society." RESTRAINTS EASED By the same token. Mr. MacDonald felt labor has been able to score some nota- ble points. One is that rising unemploy- ment lias persuaded the gov- ernment to loosen fiscal and monetary restraints to stimu- late the economy much as the CLC recommended in a mem- orandum to the cabinet last winter. "It's been a conversion, not on the road to Damascus, but at the Mr. MacDonald said. ilore satisfactory has been the outcome ol a running quarrel with the prices and in- comes commission. Its six- per-cent wage guides, pro- posed in June and immedi- ately endorsed by Ihe govern- ment, are gone. The CLC denounced Ihe guidelines as unjust and un- workable and the commission itself as a servile agent of the government's anti-labor poi- icv. Now. Mr. MacDonald feels able to dismiss the com- mission or "completely irrele- has no credibility." The history of the wage episode peculiar to a story of frustrated attempts by the commission to win voluntary restraints from organized labor as a shortcut to victory over infla- tion. Top labor leaders on all hands scoffed at the ap- proach, claiming the member- ship was in no mood to accept volunlaiy limits, and possibly leave themselves al the mercy of a rising cost-of-liv- ing. HINTS AT CONTROLS Ironically, the failure of the guidelines could herald impo- sition of wage and price con- trols through government leg- islation. Beth Mr. MacDonald and commission chairman Dr. John Young agree that unem- ployment will continue at a high level into Dr. Young suggests that compul- sory controls may be neces- sary if prices as well start up- ward. In retrospect, it might seem the voluntary guidelines never had a chance. They were pen- etrated almost immediately by construction, hospital and municipal workers and were eventually broken on a na- tional scale by the 27.000- member Council of Postal Un- ions. Rotating strike action and unofficial lockouts by the post office cost more than man-days and nearly ruined the credibility of the sei-vice. When the conflict was ended In September after a year o( collective bickering, Uic mail employees had won annual in- creases of about 7.2 per cent, a split between Ihe original oiler of a.2 per cent and tho union demand of 10 per cent. A s.gnilicant aspect of the dispute was the assistance of- ieied to the ptstiuen by other unions, particularly the Cana- dian Union ol Public Employ- ees and lire Canadian Brother- howl ol Railway, Transport and General Workers. RAH, MliN SliiCK MORE Both unions saw it at> a matter of self-interest. Tlio CURT and 13 other rail unions fully expected ID meet guidelines again in bargaining mat opened in November with Crown-owned Canadian Na- tional Railways and Ihe Cana- dian Pacific Railway. While the companies have not disclosed their hand, they have already branded as ul- tra-inilationary Ihe u n i o n s' opening demands tor two-year increases of between 17 and 40 per cent. Failure to reach agreement before the end of the year would mean railway men would be work- ing without a contract as 1971 begins. Increasing political pressure on the labor movement may have been reflected in 1970 de- velopments that saw greater emphasis among union mem- bers on political action and social reform. The CLC biennial conven- tion in Edmonton in May ex- i posed restive stirrings from an articulate nationalisl whig concerned about CLC domina- tion by powerful U.S.-based unions. It endorsed proposals for greater autonomy for the Canadian branches of the in- ternationat unions but that alone may not bring satisfac- tion. Posed against the national- ist terment is the concern of the labor hierarchy about the need to meet the growing power of multi-national corpo- rations with multi-national union strength.
