Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 1, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Interpreting the news Vietnam war debate rages again Canadian newspaper publishers accused OTTAWA (CP) Daily newspaper publishers are try- ing to weaken consumer protection measures in the Combines Investigation Act, Corporate Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet said Friday. He was commenting on, a. brief presented to the depart- ment Thursday that seeks amendments to the federal combines law. A, delegation from the Canadian Daily Newspaper Publishers Association called on Mr. Ouellet after the submission was made. The publishers argue the Combines Act unfairly per- mits advertisers to combine to agree to withhold advertis- ing from a newspaper, NEEDA MUFFLER for your BUICK CADILLAC CHEVROLET CHHYSLER DODGE FORD OLDSHOBILE PONTIAC OATSUN TOYOTA VOLKSWAGEN PLYMOUTH MERCURY PICK-UP Drop in or Call 328-6353 CARDINAL MUFFLER CENTRE 2710-12 South affecting the newspapers' primary source of revenue. The publishers want an amendment to the legislation to remove advertisers' rights to agree to reduce advertising purchases. They argue the change is needed "for the protection of the freedom of the press Mr. Ouellet points out the section the publishers want dropped from the Combines Act has been in effect since 1952. "They should remember that it is not my bill that is bringing this into he said. The corporate affairs department now has a bill to amend the Combines Act before a Commons committee for- detailed study. It has already received second reading in the Commons. (the publishers) are asking for more than simply amendments. They want changes to be made in the whole Combines Investigation Mr. Ouellet said. Department officials say the rationale behind per- mitting advertisers to withhold their business from particular newspapers is that it is one important method for reducing consumer costs. Since advertising makes up a large part of product costs, permitting large advertisers to jointly curb advertising budgets is an effective way to lower consumer prices across an entire product line, the department says.

Critics of the state secretary are inclined to blame Kissinger and Presi- dent Ford for reviving the painful divisions of the past with their insistence on an additional million in aid for South Vietnam, at a time when welfare cuts for the poor and the aged are being propos- ed to save the federal budget. The White House thesis is that the money is urgently needed to sustain Saigon's de- fensive capabilities against anticipated Communist offen- sives and to maintain U.S. "credibility" which Ford said "is essential to our national security." Besides, Ford insists, Con- gress has already approved the money in a vote last year. The White House originally asked Congress for billion in aid to South Vietnam for the current fiscal year. Congress approved billion of the re- quest, but in a separate vote to appropriate the necessary funds the amount was reduced to million. Ford now wants the missing million restored. Congress has shown little disposition to swallow the White House argument. Leaders of the majority Democratic party in the Senate have denounced the aid request, and even such erst- while hawks as Henry Jackson (Dem. Wash.) and Robert Byrd (Dem. W.Va.) are op- posing it. "Once again we are hearing the same old arguments and the same old controversies over the same old said Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem. He accused the White House and the defence department of using "threats and scare tac- by leaking captured Hamoi documents and warn- ing that Congress would be blamed if South Vietnam fell in a threatened Communist offensive. President Nguyen Van Theiu has probably not helped his own cause. Criticized in the U.S. Con- gress for corruption and dicta- torship, Theiu staged a calcu- lated series of interviews this week with American corre- spondents in Saigon and man- aged to imply that his military setbacks were the fault of the United States. Even without such tactless- ness, a revival of the Vietnam debate in Washington was all but inevitable because of the timing of Ford's request for aid. It came so close to the se- cond anniversary of the Paris peace accords brought U.S. military withdrawal from Vietnam and the return of American war it was bound to coincide with protest demonstrations, speeches and editorials recalling the inter- vening two years of warfare. In addition, the request came at a time when Com- munist military successes have returned the Vietnam war to the front pages after it had languished for months among the want un- tidy paragraphs about con- tinuing human misery. Anthony Lewis, a New York Times columnist and consis- tent critic of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, deplores the "familiar self-deception" of American leaders in the current debate. Referring to President Ford's statements about credibility and national security, Lewis recalled the decade of public statements by government officials and politicians justifying the U.S. presence in Vietnam. And he asks: "Can anyone still believe that hanging on in Indochina has enhanced the world's belief in American strength and our ability to use it ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.
