Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRI0GE HER AID Friday, February 1'. F Nixon-Mao conference site may be resort city HONOLULU (AP) Presi-1 much as Nixon imrl Premier I Nixon is likely lo meet L'hairrnan Mao Tsc-lung in the picturesque Chinese resort city of Ilaugchow. U.S. sources said this seemed a logical site for a Nixon-Mao conference since Ilaugchow, the nexUo-last slop on Uie presi- dent's China itinerary, is a fa- vored retreat of Hie 78-year-old Communist leader. A Hangcliow meeting would further underscore the apparent poliiJL-al eclipse of Mao inas- Cliou En-lai arc expected lo dis- pose of serious negotiations in Peking hefore the president sees IJnngchow. The president and Mrs. Nixon, ivho arrived here Thursday aft- ernoon after a 10-hour flight from Washington, will remain in Hawaii until Saturday otter- noon. Then they fly to Guam for an overnight stay be- fore proceeding to Shanghai and Peking.

The grain, moved to the port by rail, was stalled hy snow- can said 31 ships are to harbor waiting for 22 million bushels of wheat, with only eight million bushels in porlside grain eleva- tors. The Canadian wheat board By THE CANADIAN PRESS Radio and television service was maintained today by the .BC despite a strike of 900 tech- nicians in five cities that was supported by announcers and news writers. The technicians, members of he National Association of Broadcast Employees and Tech- u'ciar.s, were off the job today n Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Calgary and Vancouver as part of their continuing campaign of rotating strikes against the CBC which started Jan. 22. A CBC spokesman in Toronto today programming was on schedule, including live news broadcasts. Thursday, the cor- poration was forced to cancel its plans for live coverage of the opening of Parliament. In addi- tion, several radio newscasts were abbreviated after mem- bers of the Canadian Wire Serv- ice Guild cross picket linvo. Pickets -were out again today and guild members still refused to cross, but the CBC patched its service, using management and supervisory personnel. About 400 pickets on Parlia- ment Hill Thursday kept the publicly-owned corporation from broadcasting or televising the speech from the throne for the first time in 17 years. The independent CTV network had planned to pick up a feed of sforms in January which cut! couver, but only IwO cars ar- had hoped to have 300 rail can of grain arriving daily at Van- rait links, and a strike of Van- couver railway engineers two weeks ago. Acting port manager Bill Dun- Uie opening from CJOH-TV in Ottawa, but the local station's camera also refused to cross the picket line. Prime Minister Trudeau and Conservative Leader Robert Stfinfield went through the line. NDP Leader David Lev-is also crossed after the union invited nim. The union seeks a shorter work week of four nine-hour days instead of the present 40- hour week, and unqualified job security. It also wants 12.8 per cent more pay, retroactive to last July and an additional 7.8 per cent in 1973. Present lop rate for a techni- cian is a week.

Mr. Macrionald met with Premier Peler Lougheed and Alberta Mines and Miner- als Minisler. Bill Dickie. The Alberta government ask- ed for a voice in national ener- gy decisions, particularly those involving its Petroleum, after the national energy board ruled that Canada did not have suf- ficient reserves of natural gas to increase exports. Mr. Macdonald also discount- rived Thursday, Ihe brst show- ing yet, said 3Ir. Duncan. "We cleared two ships Thurs- day, but two more empties ar- he said. TALKING TO UNIONS Norman Ralkie, the wheat b o a r d 's Vancouver assistant manager, said talks were under way with union leaders over Ihe possibility of extending the work week for grain handlers to seven days. Although exports are ahead o! last year, the wheat board ex- pects to be 24 million bushels its target by the end of this month. Walter Nelson, president of the Palliscr Wheat Growers As- sociation of Regina, said the government was running a "Mickey Mouse operation." There were not enough facili- ties to handle grain shipments, he said, with the main problem being the few rail lines between the Prairies and Vancouver. Mr. Nelson, in Vancouver to attempt to speed up the ship- ments, said lie was hoping to clear up the problem not just for this year, but for the future.

The spacious frame dwelling in tlie Kanohe base sits on a hilltop and commands a spectacular view of the Pa- cific. At Hie White House before de- parture Thursday, Nixon again cautioned against expecting too much from the trip.
