Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, February 25, 1975 'ignored9 by 1976 Olympics Herald Quebec Bureau MONTREAL Representatives of Quebec's major arts bodies have severely criticized planners of the cultural festival to be held in connection with the 1976 1 Olympics. At recent Olympics, the cultural festivals have been almost as important as the games themselves. The Quebec section of the Canadian Conference of the Arts at a meeting last weekend passed unanimous- ly a resolution expressing the group's resentment for "the total lack of consultation with all elements representing the Quebec cultural and artistic milieu." It blamed organizers of the games festival "for the total lack of planning and preparation shown until and said Quebec artists should not have to be considered responsible at this late stage for problems the festival may have. One purpose of the meeting last weekend was to dis- cuss what they could contribute to the games festival No representative of the 1976 Olympics organizing committee appeared. A person who attended the meeting said "everybody started asking each other what they had been asked to do and what they had been told and found out that the answer was nothing." The games take place in 17 months. At the Mexico City games participating countries were asked to present representative aspects of their cultural life in what turned into a tour de force. Other countries have commissioned operas and organized special concerts and exhibitions. In Ger- many, the country's artists were invited to participate in a contest to design posters for the games. Guy Montpetit, vice president of the Quebec sec- tion and a painter, said in an interview that the organization has been pressing for information on the proposed festival for three years. He interpreted the resolution as expressing the im- patience of those present at the meeting. U.S.-Pakistan arms deal 'disappoints' India Gasoline prices to rise eight cents, says Douglas News in brief Selassie's radio removed OTTAWA (CP) Gasoline and heating oil prices will rise eight to 10 cents a gallon across the country by the end of June, T. C. Douglas (NDP Nahaimo Cowichan the Islands) forecast Monday night. He predicted in the Com- mons that a a the price of domestic crude oil will be approved when Prime Ministers Trudeau and the premiers meet April 9-10. This would boost retail prices about seven cents a gallon, he said later in an interview. An additional one- cent to three-cents increase would result from the government-approved end last week of voluntary price restraints on oil companies. "That's eight cents to 10 cents Mr. Douglas said. Voluntary price restraints, announced in September, 1973, were lifted Friday, freeing companies to increase prices to match rising production costs. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Mon- day that the increases will be monitored closely. Domestic crude oil, now fix- ed at a barrel, is used in all markets west of the Ot- tawa Valley. Imported oil supplies most markets in and east of the valley. REDUCES TAX Mr. Douglas said price in- creases likely will apply, in both markets because an increase in the domestic crude price would reduce the money Ottawa collects from the federal export tax on crude sold to the United States. The tax is used to sub- sidize oil prices in eastern Canada, keeping them roughly in line with retail rates in the rest of the country. Exported oil is sold at the going international rate of about a barrel. The export tax is charged at a rate equal to the difference between the world price and the fixed domestic price. The gap between the two, and in turn the export tax rate, would narrow with any domestic price increase. Mr. Douglas said it is government policy to keep prices uniform and the government almost certainly will let eastern prices rise to match any boost west of the Ottawa Valley. The rate was negotiated by the premiers last March, effective for a 15- month period ending June 30, 1975. It was agreed at the time that the price would be re- examined, and probably increased, before the expiry date. Negotiations for a new price are on the agenda for the April first ministers' meeting. ADDIS ABABA (AP) Ethiopia's military rulers took away deposed Emperor Haile Selassie's radio a few days ago apparently to pre- vent him from hearing reports about the guerrilla war in Eritrea province, reliable Western sources said today. The 82-year-old monarch is being held in an apartment at the Grand Palace, his former office and now headquarters of the Socialist Provisional Military Administrative COUIK cil that overthrew him five" months ago. Beef grades revised Cambodian rebels intensify rocket attack on capital OTTAWA (CP) Ken Hurlburt (PC Lethbridge) said Monday that beef grades for use by the Canadian armed forces appear to have been revised to A-l and A-2 from B; 1 and B-2, at an additional cost of to a carcass. Supply Minister Jean-Pierre Goyer 'said he will check. Rustling laws reviewed PHNOM PENH (AP) Cambodia's Communist-led Khmer Rouge rebels inten- sified their rocket attack on Phnom Penh today as United States diplomats reported a U.S. airlift had delivered more than tons of am- munition in 24 hours, a record. "We are going even said one official. Meanwhile, the U.S. em- bassy in Saigon announced that'the airlift will be expand- ed Thursday to fly 545 tons of rice and gallons of gas- oline and other petroleum products from the South Viet- namese capital to besieged Phnom Penh. The Khmer Rouge fired 22 107-millimetre rockets into Phnom Penh and its airport between 2 a.m. and noon. They wounded four persons, damaged several shops and set a DC-3 owned by a Cambo- dian airline afire. None of the airlift planes were hit. The Khmer Rouge also kept up heavy shelling at the Neak Luong naval base, the major position still held by the government on the Mekong River southeast of Phnom Penh. Stephenson renews call for clarifying abortion NEW DELHI (AP) India today expressed "strong dis- appointment and deep regret" over the decision by the United States to lift its 10-year embargo on arms to Pakistan. The government's reaction, in the form of a statement ap- proved by the cabinet, was read to the Indian Parliament by Foreign Minister Y. B. Chavan. Chavan hinted the U.S. deci- sion, announced Monday; BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MAUL would force India to reassess its own military needs. The government is fully conscious of its responsibility and confident of the nation's capability to meet the con- sequences of this unfortunate Chavan said. Soviet Defence Minister An- drei Grechko, who arrived here Monday for a three-day visit, met this morning with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Details of their talks were not available but informed In- dian sources have said Grechko is here to discuss possible increased Soviet military aid to India. The Soviet Union has been the major supplier of arms to India. Kashmir sheik sworn in JAMMU (AP) Sheik Mo- hammed Abdullah was sworn in today as the head of the government in Indian Kashmir, touching off demonstrations by Hindu ex- tremists. They were brought under control -by police tear gas. The violence erupted when police blocked members of the Hindu nationalist Jana Sangh party from marching into the government secretariat grounds where Ab- dullah addressed a rally after he was sworn in as chief minister of state. Not all are alike. Consider the Toronto Dominion Retirement Savings Deposit. The TD RSD is a bank deposit. That's the big differ- ence. Its high-yielding interest rate is adjusted twice yearly to match that of the TD five-year Certificate of Deposit. And you never have to worry about fluctuations in the market value of stocks and bonds as you would with some other R.R.S.P.'s. Finally, there's no interest penalty for deregistering your TD RSD at any time. As with all R.R.S.P.'s, eligible annual contributions are deductible from your current taxable income up to in some cases. So depending on your circumstances, the 1974 income tax you defer can be substantial. The money you put into a TD RSD works hard to earn more money for you. For example, if you start your TD RSD at age 35 and contribute at the beginning of each year, you'll have put in by the time you're 65. Assuming a conservative rate of return over the 30 years of Tl-lTo per annum, compounded semi-annually, your savings will have grown to Your TD Manager is the person to ask about a TD Retire- ment Savings Deposit. You'll get the facts, and you'll be pleased to know that you can start for as little as with contributions of or more whenever you wish. But hurry, March 1st, 1975 is the deadline for the 1974 tax year. OTTAWA (CP) Dr. Bette president of the Canadian Medical Association today renewed her call for a review of Criminal Code provisions on abortion, saying "there is a great need to clarify government policy" on the subject. Dr. Stephenson made the call in the current issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, published today, and backed it up with an Ottawa news conference. She released cor- respondence with Prime Minister Trudeau in which she said statements by Justice Minister Otto Lang were un- fair to physicians serving on hospital committees charged under the Criminal Code with deciding when abortions may be carried out. She said in introducing the correspondence that the CMA has no quarrel with Mr. Lang in his right to express his per- sonal views on'abortion. "However, we have con- clusive evidence of conflicting statements of government policy, and despite repeated efforts we have obtained no confirmation that either the minister's statements or his actions accurately reflect government policy. "One is therefore forced to ask: Is Mr. Lang serving as an official government spokesman on this Dr. Stephenson quoted Mr. Lang as saying in ministerial memo last Oc- tober that "social and economic considerations were not to be taken into account" by hospital abortion com- mittees. Cambodian military sources reported that despite the in- surgents' guns along both sides of the river, fresh government troops were land- ed on a strategic island across from Neak Luong, and more government forces were put ashore five miles to the south to reinforce a threatened position. In South Vietnam, the South Vietnamese air force claimed its pilots wrecked 80 trucks and a tank in a North Viet- namese supply convoy along the Cambodian and Laotian borders 280 miles north of Saigon. The South Vietnamese mili- tary command said 17 North Vietnamese were killed in a clash in the Mekong Delta 120 miles southwest of Saigon. But military sources said a South Vietnamese jet fighter- bomber was shot down and the pilot killed during raids against North Vietnamese positions on Black Virgin Mountain overlooking Tay Ninh, 55 miles northwest of Saigon. OTTAWA (CP) A review of cattle rustling laws can be expected soon, Uilles Marceau (L Lapointe) told the Commons Monday. He was responding to Bert Margrave (PC Medicine Hat) who said cattle thelt, spurred by high beef prices, has become a big-time criminal racket. Penalties are outdated, often ranging from one-day to six-month jail terms, and should be lengthened, he said. New ambassador named TOKYO (CP) Japan's am- bassador to South Vietnam since 1972, Yasuhiro Nara, was named today as am- bassador to Canada, Agence France-Presse reported, quoting foreign ministry sources. Nara, 57, joined the ministry in 1941. He served as consul-general in Chicago and New York until his promotion to ambassador to Singapore in 1969. He replaces Akira Nishiyama, the new am1 bassador to South Korea. Mine fined for pollution YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T.

TORONTO DOMINION the bank where people maks the difference rescues children NEW YORK (AP) Four children are alive today be- cause their mother braved flames and dense smoke three times to pull them from their burning apartment, fire offi- cials said. Mrs. Estrella Santiago, 33, told firemen the blaze appar- ently was caused-by the kitchen oven she had lit Mon- day to heat their first-floor apartment. "I left the kitchen for a minute and when I returned it was on she said. "The curtain must have caught on fire." "The fire was between me and the children who were sleeping in their two bed- rooms. "My eyes were blinded by all the smoke so I prayed to God to let me see enough to find my children. "I put a blanket over my- self and went through the kitchen and carried out two of the babies to the street. "The smoke was very heavy and I found one more of the children on the second trip. The third time was the roughest but I thank God we all made it." Candidate's calendar CARDSTON: -lohn Thompson, Conservative Wednesday In Cardston promoting premier's luncheon.
