Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 12, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 37 Anyone want to buy a good base? STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S. Phone 327-3024 Smile-a-thon Helen Szybaiski, 18, left, and Romus La Das, also 18, were among the finalists in a smile-a-thon in Toronto. A group of teenagers began smiling in the morning and were still at it late in the evening. Finally, they flip- ped a coin to decide who had won. LONDON (AP) Anyone want a naval base on Africa's southernmost tip where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet? It will be available soon, complete with the biggest drydock between Europe and Singapore and a fine commu- nications system. And cheap too, for Simon- stown is a good, going con- cern. Politically, though, the cost to a new tenant would be high because South Africa, which owns the place, is in bad re- pute with much of the rest of the world because of its strict race policies. Britain's Labor government is phasing out its lease, which began in 1795. In today's race-conscious world, with Britain trying to live down its imperial past, 'military co-operation with the South Africans has become a headache. Each time British and South African warships exercise together a political storm breaks at home and protests pour in from abroad. The British have made their intentions plain even though Prime Minister Harold Wil- son's move to disengage has been hotly assailed by politi- cal foes. South Africans have suggested that both the United States and France would be ready to move into Simon- stown. But authorized American officials have spread word that President Ford's ad- ministration is not interested in taking over. So, too, has France, and no other allied power seems qualified to take on the commitment even if it wanted to. Britain's readiness to let its 20-year defence pact with South Africa "wither on the as Foreign Secretary James Callaghan put it recently, does not mean Si- monstown's facilities are not valued by allied strategists. Military planners within the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) have recognized the importance of keeping the sea lanes around the Cape of Good Hope safe. Tens of thousands of merchantmen, allied warships and tankers carry- ing Persian Gulf oil to Europe pass around the cape. NATO men have prepared emergency arrangements to keep open the sea lanes dur- ing 'crises even though cape waters lie well south of NATO's limits. The reason for South is the ever-swelling Soviet naval presence in the Indian Ocean, latest U.S. intelligence shows the Russians with 12 combat and 18 auxiliary vessels in the region. They are deployed mainly near the Persian Gulf. With the reopening of the Suez Canal expected, next spring, even more Soviet war- ships are likely to show up. The Americans, in contrast, have one flagship and two de- stroyers in the area. From time to time task forces sail west from the Pacific and other groups probably will do so from the Mediterranean. NATO powers have con- cluded it is simply not good politics to associate with South Africa, whose apartheid polices are assailed through- out the non-white world. In- deed only an American-Brit- ish-French veto in the United Nations Security Council.last fall saved South Africa from explulsion. Callaghan recalled recently that'when Britain and South Africa signed their naval de- fence .pact in 1955 there were only five independent African states. Today there are 42. This, then, has transformed things. American officials have in- sisted they neither encour- aged nor discouraged the British to continue naval co- operation with South Africa. The Americans themselves stopped all that themselves a decade ago. Like the British they observe a UN embargo on the sale of arms to South Africa. The American officials said they are not worried about "losing" Simonstown. In a big war the base, and indeed all South African ports, would hardly be denied to South Africa's' friends. In a big war, too, the action likely would be elsewhere. BUYING A NEW CAR?
