Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ternary II, THI UTHMIMI HIUID 2ft Canada begins sending high-level technical assistance to Cuba OTTAWA (CP) Canada htt begun sending high-level techni- cal assistance to Cuba through Canadian University Service Overseas. CUSO, formally a private vol- unteer agency, receives M per cent of its funds from the fed- eral government, which does not have Its own external aid program In Cuba. Two mJcroHolo- gist and an English instructor- were sent to Havana by CUSO in December. Surinne Johnson, CUSO's director for the program, laid In an interview Tuetday about 75 persons could be sent to Cuba during the year. That would make It one of the larger programs of the agency, which has people working in more than 40 countries. CUSO has been oonsldetiDg Cuba for a number of years. .About two years ago, when revolutionary rhetoric was reaching its peak on Canadian campuses, the organization was often damned aa a tool of capi- talism, tending middle-claw primarily to'West- ern-oriented developing coun- o-iet and ignoring socialist countries aucb as Cuba. In fact the Cuban government had ib doubts at the time.about the value of such volunteers in tta revolutionary setting. The agency has stuck to a political stance which demands that volunteers concentrate on providing (he skills that the host countries are asking for. SHARING A IAUGH President Nixon and President Agnew share a laugh and then leave the speaking platform together at Andrews Air Base after wel- coming Mrs. Nixon back to Washington. Mrs. Nixon returned from her official visit to West Africa on the President's 59th birthday. Miss Johnson said CUSO and the Cuban government have agreed on a program Involving Mghiy-skUkd adviiers and tech- uicfen. Although Mies Johnson has two portraits of the late Cuban revolutionary Che Guevera hanging on her office wall, she says she is looking for bioche- mists and agronomists, not po- litical science graduates who would like to cut sugar cane with the people. In some cases the Cubans have asked specifically for Ca- Trade barriers reduction urged TORONTO (CP) Allen Lambert, president of the To- ronto Dominion Bonk, said today Canada should move to- wards a reduction of trade bar- riers with the United States. He told ttw bank's annul meeting there should be "maxi- mum freedom of trade in allowing for "maximum benefits fo the development of Canadian productive capabil- ity and the Canadian consum- ers' need." However, he warned, Oan- Mars haze clearing PASADENA, Calif. (AP) The haze that has hidden Mars since late September and threatened Mariner 9 with fail- ure is rapidly clearing. Scientists say the orbiting spacecraft's television cameras are returning striking phoio- grapbs that show strange, unex- plained features. "The photographs are show- ng us a fantastic range of brand- new phenomena that no me ever suspected existed on Dr. Oarl Sagan, an as- tronomer from Cornell Univer- sity working on the project, said Monday. The photographs have shown lowering ridges and canyons 'grander than the Grand Can- One such canyon appears a be six to 12 miles across and KThaps more than a mile deep, he scientists report. There are pictures of great craters, one about 70 miles across that closely resemble earth features evolved through volcanic activity. ada's interests should be pro- tec ted by negotiating safe- guards in new trade agreements such as in the United States- Canada auto pact. "A major part of such a pro- gram, insofar as our trade in manufactured goods is con- cerned, should be the assurance that foreign subsidiaries operat- ing in Canada are granted equal access to the United States. "There will be those who are fearful of the implications of further integration of our prod- ucers wiHi United States mar- kets and of United States pro- ducers with our markets, but so long as Canadians insist upon the same standard of living as their American neighbors, we will have no alternative but to reach out for larger markets." The Canadian dollar" should continue to trade without a fixed value until adjustments in trade and capital flows are completed. A new fixed-trading range for 8ie dollar would prob- ably have as its upper limit ap- proximate parity with the U.S. dollar. Mr. Lambert said he expected another year if strong growth, "with dollar GNP rising by more than 10 per cent and real growth greater than in 1971." As reported earlier, profit for the Toronto Dominion Bank for the year ended Oct. 31 was or a share, compared with or a share in 1970. A text of Mr. Lambert's speech was released in advance of delivery. WAGE FREEZE A price and wage freeze in Norway will be lifted Nov. IS one year after it was Imposed, the government reported. nadlan experts whose published papers they have read. And in some cases, these experts have agreed to partlcpate. One at the volunteers already In Cuba is Charlotte Rigby, a recent PhD graduate from UK University of Ottawa who is doing research in rumen micro- biology with Cuban milk cows. WESTERN EXPERTS HELP She will get top-level Cana- dian assistance during her two- year tour. Dr. Henry Blackburn, a professor in microbiology at the University of British Colum- bia, spent some weeks hi Cuba during December helping set up the job. Dr. Frank Loew, a cat- tle expert from the University o f Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, will aln be going to Cuba to assist the project on a short- term basis. This month Dr. W. A. Jenkins, principal of the Nova Scotia Ag- ricultural College in Truro, will go there to assess Cuban mid- dle-level agricultural training programs, and on Jan. 24 seven professors from universities across Canada will go to do an evaluation of a masters pro- gram being set up at the Uni- versity of Havana. Miss Johnson said she has been doing nothing but recnu't- Ing at the personal level since the Cuban requests came in, and she has found 22 professors ready to go. Most will stay in Cuba for a matter of months, and will receive only air fare from CUSO and living expenses from the Cuban government. CUSO has had a man In Ha- vana for a year working toward the program. He is Joe Vise of Toronto. IMPRESSED BY VISIT Miss Johnson, who visited the island herself for two weeks in December, came away im- pressed. "It's my Impression that they are well-organized In their re- search and need outside cata- lysis at a very senior level to offer new directions." Two of the areas in which the Cubans have been asking for .help are food-preservation and i pollution control. Mini-mini-mini election BAKRIE, Ont. (CP) Farmer Harold Frankland and his wife Ann Margaret will form an absolute major- ity of they vote the same way in a liquor pleb- iscite Feb. 9 covering a 100- acre "dry" enclave in this city. Because of a welter of pro- vincial and municipal regula- tions, Mr. and Mrs. Frankland find themselves as the Only two voters in a full-blast pleb- iscite Feb. 9 that municipal officials here are describing as a mini-mini-mini-elccUon, perhaps the smallest in On- tario history. How did it happen? Well, a couple of years ago the Franklands sold their farm to Formosa Spring Brewery Lid. which is moving its vats here from the Owen Sound area with production sched- uled to start next spring. They remained on the farm, paying rent on the family farmhouse to await- ing construction of a new home. When the Franklands sold out, their farm was part of Iniiisfil Township, which borders on me city of Barrie. About 18 months ago the city annexted the Frankland farm and the brewery from the township. The problem: at the time of annexation, Innis- fil Township was beer sales Barrie was fully wet. A few months after the an- nexation, the township voted wet. This left the Frankland farm the only dry Island in a sea of legal beer and booze. The beer company wants to sell its suds directly to the public from the brewery. If this is to come about, provin- cial law says the 100-acre farm has to be voted "wet." So, the city has to appoint a returning officer, put out a voters' list, get a ballot box, rent a polling station, get two ballots printed up and have in official count on election day for the Franklands. Just how are the Frank- lands going 'to vote? "I don't think that's any- body's business, but Mr. Frankland grumped in an interview. "That's a matter of privilege, something for our own consciences, and I'm not telling anybody." FLQ hideout is sold ST. LUC, Que. (CP) A white backroad farmhouse near this community where three men were arrested In Decem- ber, 1970, in connection with the Iddnap-murder of Labor Minis- ter Pierre Laporte, has been sold to Sebastien Veldhuizin of the Montreal suburb of Cham- bly. The sale, completed last Sept. 2, involved square feet of property, includ- ing the two-storey frame house where Paul and Jacques Rose and Francis Smart tunnelled a passageway behind the base- ment furnace to an underground room where they were arrested Dec. almost two months after the death of Mr. Laporte. Michel Vlger, who rented the vacant bouse from its previous owners, South Shore Credit Corp. of Longueml, before the Roses and Slmard moved in, was sentenced last June to eight years in prison as an accessory after the fact in the murder. Paul Rose, 23, is serving life sentence for the slaying and kidnapping of Mr. Laporte in October, 1970. while 23-year-old Francis Simard is under a life sentence for the labor minister's murder. He also faces trial on the kidnap charge. Jacques Rose, 23, brother of Paul, faces trial on a kidnap charge Feb. 7 and on the mur- der charge at a later date. The men were arrested In the wake of the kidnap crisis which started Oct. 5', 1970, with the abduction of British envoy James Cross. This act was fol- lowed Oct. 10 by Mr. Laporte's abduction and murder. WILL PAINT NIXON CHADDS FORD, Pa.
