Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Soviet threat in Indian Ocean MOSCOW (Renter) The miry of the Soviet fleet into wanner southern waters in re- cent yean confronts Western with new political and military problems in the In- dian Ocean. The increase of the Soviet naval presence in the Mediter- ranean from the mid-1960s caused alarm to some Western governments who saw it as a threat in what had come to be regarded as a traditionally Eu- ropean sphere of influence. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic National Store Bldg. Ph. 327-7244 Now battle-grey vessels bear- ng tbe hammer and sickle are cruising in the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, and for Britain at least there have al- ready been far-reaching reper- cussions. Fears of a Soviet threat in this area, expressed by the Con- servative government in London to justify possible arms sales to South Africa, have provoked a major foreign policy contro- versy which has spread far be- yond the shores of the nation which once ruled the waves. Prime Minister Edward Heath of Britain has repeatedly pinpointed Soviet naval activity in the Indian Ocean as one of the main reasons for consider- ing the proposal to sell mari- time arms to South Africa for joint protection of sea routes. Moscow's position has been! that the Sonet Indian Ocean fleet poses no threat to any- body, that the ocean is an open sea available to ships of all na- tions and not the internal lake of any country. Such statements, however, hardly seem likely to impress Britain, which more than any other major power has seen its formal naval supremacy chal- lenged and overtaken. In contrast, Western experts on both sides of the Atlantic agree that Russia's naval power has gone from strength to strength since Peter the Great founded the Russian Imperial Navy in 1695.____________ GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB 6th ST. and 9th AVE.

But most eluding those of low tar and ni- cotine cigarettes-say they do not expect the disclosures to af- fect sales. In the latest government tests of 120 brands of cigarettes, tar content ranged from three milli- grams to 31 milligrams. Fed- eral officials estimate that ciga- rettes with less than 15 milli- grams of tar account for about three per cent of all cigarettes sold in the United States. An industry agreement, signed last December after the Federal Trade Commission had proposed requiring tar and nico- tine disclosure in advertise- ments, does not require com- pjrative figures in the ads. The surgeon-general's office 'long has urged a switch to lower tar and .nicotine ciga- rettes for smokers who cant or won't give up the habit, but a spokesman said there are no plans for an educational cam- paign aimed at capitalizing on the new industry ads. The surgeon-general has linked smoking to cancer, coro- nary heart diseases, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary emphy- sema and other diseases. The advertising disclosures follow a new tougher label placed on packs late last year and the end of broadcast ciga- rette commercials early this year. In the last 10 years Soviet naval ships have nosed out of lurmansk, Sevastopol, Vladi- ostok and other ports along the country's vast waterboard to cruise round the world. Western reports say the first Soviet naval excursion into the Caribbean came in 1S64. Four years later Russian military .hips were culling through the ndian Ocean. SAIL 21 SHIPS Maximum deployment there during 1970 was put at 21 ships and submarines. More recently, naval sources inSingapore jlaced Soviet strength in the >cean at one submarine, a sub- marine tender, two to four frig- ates oi- destroyers, a large tank .anding ship, a tanker and sev- eral surveillance trawlers. The Soviet navy now is the second biggest in the world be- hind the United States, but its submarine fleet is the largest.

The present rector, actor Peter Ustinov, is running for re-election, but students wanted to ask Miss Hawn to contest the post. During a telephone conversa- tion .students had last month with Miss Hawn, she said she would be delighted to accept, and law student James Munro then flew to Hamburg where she is filming to deliver the in- vitation personally. But he returned with the news that Miss Hawn felt on reflec- tion that her commitments might prohibit her from devot- ing much time to the task if elected. A rector is an honorary title and the recipient is asked to attend the university once or twice a year.
