Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon likes band PEKING (AP) Throughout an eight-course three-hour ban- quet Monday in President Nix- on's honor, a Chinese band min- gled Chinese folk songs with such folksy Americana as Home on Hie Range, Turkey in the Straw, and America the Beauli- ful. Nixon was so impressed at the way the band executed the U.S. national anthem that he left the head table the final toast and strode to the bandstand to congratulate the startled band leader. With practically the whole press corps, Chinese and Ameri- can, surging in his wake, the maestro appeared to Ihink for one frightening moment that a hostile audience was bearing down on him. The banquet closed with Nbion goir.g from (able lo table end individually toasting more than 70 Chinese leaders wilh sips of mao-fai. the potent, .sor- ghum-based Chinese whisky. "Any minute now they start passing papers for us to said Henry A. Kissinger as the bottoms up toasts followed one another in profusion. SAT BETWEEN MXONS At the sumptuous banquet in the Great Hall of the People, Premier Chou En-lai sat be- tween the Nixons at a huge cir- cular head table beneath enor- mous floodlit Hags of the United States and the Peoples' Repub- lic of Cluna. A battalion of while-jacketed waiters served an eight-course Chinese menu that ranged from bamboo shoots lo steamed chicken with coconut. In moving from table to table for the personal toasLs. Nixon fixed each Chinese dignitary with a firm slare but compro- mised the formality loward the end by only touching the glass to his lips. Chou, in an earlier round of the same game, was more inclined to drain the cup. The Great Hall, built in less than a year in 1950's Great Leap Forward, can seat 5.000 guests at a banquet. For the Nixon welcome, about 700 U.S. and Chinese guests, including Hie entire White House press corps, were served at M tables. Peking's diplomatic colony was not invited, nor were foreign correspondents living tn the city.

BENSON By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) Canada in- tends lo keep its options open on future continental defence ar- rangements with the United States, Defence Minister E. J. Benson says. In an interview, the minister appeared to suggest that the government may refuse to renew the NORAD agreement unless it takes into account stra- tegic changes in the North American siluation. NOMAD, the North American Air Defence Command, was es- tablished by Canada and the U.S. in 1958 to counter a Soviet bomber threat, and renewed in 1968 for a further five years. Preliminary negotiations on its future may begin later this year. Mr. Benson, appointed de- fence minister Jan 28 after nearly four years as finance minister, declined to say whether he favors another ex- tension of the agreement. He noted the government's de- fence white paper, published last August, pledged Canada's continuing co-operalinn with thp U.S. in joint defence but did not High Kiver contract let OTTAWA (CP) A post of- fice will be built at H i g h River.

The white paper said Ihe I he U.S. at what the future Ihrcals appear to be." EXTENSION DEPENDS Another extension would de- pend on whether the wording is 'compatible with our view as lo what our role should be." At another point Mr. Benson said the agreement, if it is tn Mr. Benson said he foresees no increase in defence spending in the next year or 50, but is considering procurement programs (hat could cause sub- si anlial fulure increases. These included the possibility of purchasing a new fleet of de- slroyers, a new long-range pa- trol aircraft to replace the Argus and a new fighter air- craft. The defence budget, in the fis- cal year starting April 1, may lop 51.0 million for the first time since a freeae was imposed Ihree years ago, but the in crease is not expected to bo more than one per cent.
