Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 4, 1975 IBM has no Cuban contract yet Railroads and pheasants OTTAWA (CP) IBM Can- ada Ltd. has expressed "sincere interest" in an ex- port order for typewriters to Cuba, but it has no contract yet, Industry minister Alastair Gillespie said Friday. Mr. Gillespie called a press conference to comment on re- ports that IBM Canada had be- come the second subsidiary in as many weeks to have an ex- port sale blocked by a U.S. parent company for fear of running afoul of the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act. Another Toronto-based company, Cole division of Litton Business Equipment Ltd., earlier was told by its parent, Litton Industries Inc. of Beverly Hills, Calif., not to proceed with a fur- niture order because U.S. enemy trading laws make it an offence to deal with countries listed as enemies, such as Cuba. Litton sub- sequently relented and has fil- ed an application in Washington to allow its Cana- dian subsidiary's sale. Shortly before Mr. Gillespie's press briefing, Ed Broadbent, New Democratic Party leader, issued a state- ment calling for the govern- ment to "act now to put an ARLEM THEIR FABULOUS BASKETBALL CIRCU DATE: Thursday, Jan. 9th, p.m. PLACE: Foremost School Gymnasium OPPONENTS: FOREMOST FALCONS ADMISSION: Adults Students "Employment opportunities are available when you successfully complete one of the short-term programs at the Lethbridge Community College.
