Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI UIHMIDGI HIIAIB fridoy, Hbtuory Ships waiting in line for grain at Vancouver OTTAWA (CP) the Canadian wheat board, said queues of ships waiting for grain cargoes to be loaded may be formed in Vancouver before the end of this month, Otto today. As of noon today, he told Op- position Leader Robert Stanfield in the Commons, there were tne ena 01 uus munui, ui IMS- Lang, minister responsible for seven ships being loaded and 11 or 18 ships were expected be- fore the end of February and "lengthy queues" might result. Mr. Stanfield asked whether there is assurance the proper grain would be on hand to i smart that the proper quality he ships as they berth. miantitv orould h e avail- Mr. Lang said rail shipments o Vancouver are being pro- grammed for specific ships to Soviet-ECM differences block new wheat pact GENEVA (CP) Political differences between the Soviet Union and the European Com- mon Market are reported to be delaying formal completion of the new, skeleton-type interna- tional wheat agreement. Conference officials had hoped to complete the month- long deliberations today but the final public session was put off until Saturday. A Common Mar- ket official said he hoped the matter can be resolved by the weekend. Briefly, the matter concerns recognition. The Soviet Union does not recognize the political existence of the Common Mar- ket and will not sign sny agree- ment with it. Under International Wheat Agreement rules the Common Market is recognized as "a country." While the final draft of the new agreement is still se- cret, a copy received by this re- porter tries to get around the differences by allowing any signing country to withhold rec- ognition of the Common Market and deal only with each of the six Common Market partners as individual countries. One of the delegates not in- volved in the dispute said the latest clash is how the agree- ment is to be signed and who is to be authorized to do the sign- ing. be able to do is to bold meetings and make recommendations to the country accused of breaking the spirit of the agreement. There will be no production Canada hoped there would all esti- mates by exporters and import- ers on wheat available for ship- ment and required for consump- tion "shall in no way be bind- If this dispute can be settled conference officials feel this will be resolved-the new three-year agreement will go Into effect July 1 prjviding that sufficient countries ratify it. DROPS PRICE PROPS The disappointing element from the Canadian viewpoint is that the agreement, for the firsf time since 1949, will be of all major price and marl ing props. There will be no minimum or maximum prices, no obligations by the importing countries to buy fixed percentages or quantt ties of wheat from the exporters and no as the Cana dian Lakehead or U.S. Gulf wheat prices can be collectively assessed. The main point of the new agreement is to retain the housekeeping or administrative machinery of the existing Inter national Wheat Council in Lon- don and to have it continue collect information on produ tion, marketing and import until a more effective pact ci be worked out. The agreement still maintain the old objectives of promotin wheat market stability and ex pansion and to seek to avoid price war. But if there are com plaints by any member country the only thing the council wi OTTAWA (CP) Alberta Ag- iculture Minister H. A. Ruste aid Thursday the Commons ag- .culture committee had not subpoenaed" him to attend ieir meeting. In an interview, Mr. Ruste aid the committee "made no Sort" to reach his office in Ed- monton while he was on a cross-country tour sounding out pinions on proposed national marketing legislation. Hence, he saw no reason to ttend the hearings because he ad made his position "abun- antly clear" in correspondence rath to the committee and the ederal agriculture minister, H. Olson. Since the committee did want o hear his views, however, Mr. luste said he was pleased to fly down for the Ottawa meeting and to restate Alberta's position on the proposals.

During the committee meet- ing Mr. Ruste referred to a tele- gram he had sent to the com- mittee before it started public hearings across Canada. In the telegram, dated Dec. 16, 1970, Mr. Ruste said he hoped the committee would bold hearings in Edmonton to give smaller farm organizations who "do not have the resources to travel outside the province" a chance to air their views. But the "government of Al- berta has already made its views known on the bill... so we would not be making repre- sentation if you hold hearings in the telegram said.

Injustice done says ombudsman EDMONTON (CP) An in- quiry commission's opinion to the contrary, Alberta ombuds- man George McClellan still feels former Edmonton real estate salesman R. J. PhUipxyk done an injus- tice. In a special report tabled in the legWature Thursday, Mr. McClellan said Mr. PhUiptyk's expulsion by the Edmonton Real Estate Board Co-opera- tive Listing Bureau Ltd. in 1966 WM contrary to natural justice. The ombudsman is expected to appear before the legisla- ture to personally defend his position in the controversial case, possibly some time next week. In the report, Mr. McClellan said the inquiry commission, headed by Colin Cameron Mc- Laurin, appears to have come to the conclusion that what was done to Mr. Philipzyk, now a resident of North Buraaby, B.C., was done legal- ly. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Egypt served notice today that it will make no more con- cessions to get peace with the Israelis and challenged Israel to 'tell the Arabs and the world whether it wants peace or terri- iry." "If Israel's answer is, 'Yes, I want your land, not your peace, Pop bottles legislation opposed EDMONTON (CP) If a charge is imposed on all non- returnable soft drink bottles, lay offs in the industry can be expected, the Alberta Soft Drink Association said here. The association met with Highways Minis t e r Gordon Taylor to discuss proposed legi- slation. If stores must give a refund on the present non returnable containers costs in the sofl drink industry could be ad- versely affected the association said in a statement. The statement also said a similar legislation in British Columbia had proved ineffec- tive in achieving its objective of reducing litter. and you can do what you like about then Egypt lave to draw the inescapable conclusion that there is no alter- native to said a article in the semi-official news- paper Al Ahram. The article said, however, that this did not mean Egypt would start shooting March 7 when the current ceasefire ex- pires. Instead, it will retain the initiative to pick the "time, place and method of fighting." Sources close to the Israeli government reported Thursday that Egypt'has indicated it will sign a peace treaty if Israel re- turns all of the Sinai desert. Is- rael has demanded a binding peace agreement as prelude to any withdrawal from territory it occupied in the 1967 Middle East war. Observers in Jerusalem noted that even though the reported Cairo offer included the stand- ard demand for complete Israeli withdrawal, by speaking of a peace treaty or agreement, it went further than Egypt's pre- vious expressions of willingness to reach a "settlement." They said an Israeli answer to the Egyptian proposal might be drafted at the next cabinet ses- sion Sunday. Egypt's latest expression of its views was delivered Wednes- day to Gunnar V. Jarring, the United Nations mediator for the Middle East. SAME TO YOU FEtlOW It doesn't take long.

PUBLIC HEARINGS WILL BE HELD During week of: OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau repeated his mime act in th e Commons Thursday and opposition members said it was no more "fuddle-duddle" than it was the first time. The House was voting on a New Democratic amendment on third reading of a govern- ment bill to increase veterans' pensions. Opposition members rose to vote in favor, then Mr. Tru- deau led off his Liberal con- tingent in voting against. There were a few indistin- guishable opposition jeers when the prime minister rose to be recorded. As he sat down, he turned and mouthed something that appeared from the press gallery to be the well-known Anglo-Saxon ob- scenity he is accused by the opposition of mouthing during Tuesday's question period. Steve Paproski monton Centre) said outside the Commons the comment appeared to be directed st him. NOT THE FIRST TIME "I've been insulted by bet- ter people on the football said the former Ed- monton Eskimos football player. M. T. McCutcheon Lambton-Kent) said Mr. Tru- deau wants to be "obscene but not heard." Tuesday, opposition mem- bers, including John Lundri- gan and Lincoln Alexander (PC- Hamilton accused the prime minister of mouthing an obscenity at them. Mr. Trudeau later denied having done it, saying that "fuddle-duddle" may have been more what he was think- ing at the time. Mr. Paproski said Mr. Tru- deau "thinks it is a big joke because he hits the headlines again." The government won the vote 97 to 68. Commissioner McLaurin also took the stand there was no casual connection between the expulsion of Mr. PMlipzyk aod approval of the laws and by- laws of the bureau by a gov- ernment official, and that the government would not be war- ranted in compensating Mr. Philipiyk as the ombudsman bad recommended. "My approach was a differ- ent Mr. McClellan said, "for the ombudsman act per- mits me to go far beyond le- gality, and to consider matters of discrimination, oppressive- ness, unreasonableness and even to consider whether a practice on which a decision, recommendatimi, act or omis- sion was based, should be al- tered, or indeed, that any oth- er steps should be taken." "May I make it clear that I at no time attempted to ascer- tain the guilt or innocence of Mr. Philipzyk. I regarded this as none of my business. My sole concern was the correct- ness, or otherwise, of the pro- cedures, which were used against him, and the law which might have sanctioned his expulsion contrary to nat- ural justice." Mr. Philipzyk was charged with making derogatory state- ments against a former em- ployer. Mr. McClellan noted that Commissioner McLaurin found that under the bureau's supple- mentary bylaws Mr. Philipzyk was rightfully expelled and the terms of the bureau's bylaws were strictly adhered to in giv- ing him a fair hearing. "I must submit that I can find no way by which I could accept the proposition that Mr. Philipzyk was either rightfully or fairly the om- budsman said. Mr. McClellan said the pro- visions in 1959 for explusion in the supplemental bylaws of the bureau have been invalid and without effect since a 1961 amendment to the co-operative associations act and that the government's director of co- operative activities, in approv- ing the bylaws, made an error. Mr. McClellan made reluc- tant reference to commission- er McLaurin's report calling into question his impartiality and credibility. "If at any time the members J the legislative assembly should ever come to feel that they hfve lost in the ombudsman, I would hope to be the first to he said. "My position would be un- tenable, and my course would be dear. "Finally, I wish to state, that whatever may be the outcome of the decision of this assem- bly, on the merits of this case, one aspect of ft will always be a matter of the deepest pos- sible regret to me in the office I hold. "It is, that a man be he right or wrong, sought the as- sistance of the ombudsman to correct what he considered was an injustice to him. He was entitled at the same time, to the protection of the om- budsman. Instead, the re- sult is, that he finds himself publicly branded as 'a person of erratic mentality.' Woman admits killings LOS ANGELES (AP) Pa- tricia Krenwinkel, serene softspoken, confessed in grisly detail that she killed two par- sons in the Sharon mur- ders and carved "War" on the chest of a dead man in the aft- ermath. The dark-haired, ptafc-looWng defendant was unemotional she testified Thursday that she chased coffee heiress Abigail Folger across the lawn of ac- tress Tate's mansion and then "I stabbed her and I kept stab- bing her."

Eaton Ltd. today was acquitted in pro- vincial court here on a charge of publishing misleading adver- tising in its 1969 Christmas cata- logue. In dismissing the case, Pro- vincial Judge S. Tupper Bigelow said: "I find myself to complete agreement with the argument" filled by M. C. Austin, defence counsel for the department store. The charge was laid last July under the misleading advertis- ing section of the Combines In- vestigation Act, which came Into force In 1969. Prosecutor Walter Persram said during the trial in January that Eaton's had advertised men's permanent-press sports shirts priced at but the shirts bad not been sold in Canada before. He introduced a copy of the 1969 Christmas catalogue in which Hie shirts were adver- tised as having been reduced 40 per cent, to each. Mr. Austin argued that al- though the shirts were made for Eaton's and had not been sold before, they were essentially the same as shirts manufactured by another company which ordi- narily sold for Eaton's, Shell Canada Ltd. and. Simpsons-Sears were the first prominent Canadian firms charged under the misleading advertising regulations. The charge against Shell Can- ada "as dismissed at a prelimi- nary hearing in January.
