Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Ftbruiry 28, 1175 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 million business reported Acupuncture study Canada helped Stock program announced American war arsenal By BHUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Canada, dur- ing the last three years, sold more than million worth of military equip- from clothing to the United States on major contracts. Of that figure, nearly J50 million was specifically listed by the Pentagon as being "for support of Southeast Asia." U.S. defence department figures, which cover only contracts worth 000 or more each, show that while, material earmarked for Southeast Asia declined steadily during 1972-73-74, the over all contract figures held steady throughout the period. The Pentagon, which said there was nothing classified in the information, pulled the figures out of its computers at the request of The Canadian Press. The U.S. contracts were worth to Canadian suppliers in 1972, climbed to in 1973 and fell back slightly to in 1974, the last year for which figures were available. As the U.S. involvement in Cam- bodia, Laos and Vietnam wound down, so did the Canadian contracts listed for Southeast Asia. The U.S. figures did not break down the Canadian contributions by country. In 1972, the figures listed for support of Southeast Asia totalled In 1973, the figure was dropping to last year. In nearly all cases, the Canadian contracts were negotiated by the U.S. through the Canadian Commercial Corp., a Crown agency established to handle government-to-government purchases. Purchases from Canada and listed for Southeast Asia included, over the three-year period: Demolition materials, bulk explosives, am- munition, special purpose clothing, including body armor, underwater sound equipment, one contract, worth airborne radar, seven contracts totalling Defence department spokesmen, who asked not to be named, said that figures supplied paint a conservative picture of Canada's contribution to the U.S. arsenal in that they do not take into ac- count contracts worth less than each. The suggestion that Canadian arms went to Vietnam has appeared periodically over the years. Last month Trade Minister Alastair Gillespi'e said he is certain that munitions made in Canada eventually ended up in the Vietnam war. Contracts let to Canadian suppliers, not all listed for the war zone, included: Guided missile launchers; maintenance, repair and modification of aircraft and engines; air mobility support systems; aircraft gunnery fire control components; fixed-wing air- craft; navigational equipment; gas- turbine jet engine components; un- dersea surveillance systems; bombs; air cargo transportation services; li- quid propellants and fuels, petroleum base; naval vehicle technology. EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government yesterday announced a 000 program of acupuncture research and establishment of a task force to plan paifr relief clinics. Neil Crawford, health and social development minister, said the money will be made available during the next fiscal year to support clinical and research programs into the ancient Chinese art. Priority will be given to proposals from medical and dental faculties of universities at Calgary and Edmonton but other proposals also will be considered, he said. Similar acupuncture studies are being funded by Ontario and British Columbia governments. The government also an- nounced support of a decision by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons, which last year labelled acupuncture as experiemen- tal. Sask. only holdout on lottery tickets By THE CANADIAN PRESS Saskatchewan is the only western province in which sales of Olympic lottery tickets are illegal but the provincial cabinet is still studying the matter. Government spokesmen last week announced approval of sales in British Columbia and Manitoba. It was an- nounced initially that Saskatchewan had joined B.C. and Manitoba in approving such sales, but a Saskatchewan spokesman said later the matter was still being discussed. Sales have been legal in Alberta since August, 1973, when approval was granted by order in council. B.C. specified that the Western Canada Lottery Foundation would control sale of tickets. Persons or com- munity organizations approv- ed by the foundation will be free to sell Olympic lottery tickets and Western lottery tickets. In Manitoba, tickets will be made available through credit unions, trust companies and other major outlets. Alberta sales have not been regulated through a foun- dation, Sharon Tymko, in charge of issuing provincial licences for lotteries, says. Celebrating out .L. Birthday with and tot you!
