Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-12,Lethbridge, Alberta 20 — THE IETH8RI0ÛE HERALD — SMMrday, J«nu«ry 12, 1974 Army getting anti-tank weap.oii OTTAWA (CP) - The armed forces will spend about t30 million on a new anti-unk weapon comparable to anything that was used bv either side in the recent Middle East hostilities. The forces have announced they are acquiring T.O.W.— tube-launched, optically-tracked, wire-guided—an American missile now being used by several countries, including Israel. A recent defence department announcement said T O.W. IS a highly accurate, semi-automatic missile system capable of destroying a tank at ranges from 70 yards to about two miles. "It will give the Canadian forces a greaUy Increased, longrange, anti-armor capability.” the department Olympic broadcasting deal charge denied NOTICE Sanltiry Landfill - Scile Operation The City of Lethbridge will commence scale operations at the Sanitary Landfill January 24th, 1974, after which time all refuse received at the Landfill will be weighed and subject to tee as established in By-Law 3188.

A CBC hour-long television program says the National Research Council communications building houses an mteliigence agency working closely with the CIA. It said the NRC intercepted communications inside and outside Canada. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp later called the program “mischievous and misleading ’’    ■ MONTREAL (CP) - Gerry Snyder, vice-president of the Olympic organizing committee, denied Friday there was any discussion of financial contributions to the Quebec govenunent by United States television networks prior to awarding of television rights in the 1976 Olympic Games here. ‘‘As a member of the negotiating team (for television rights), I categoncally deny that anything of that nature was ever discussed,” Mr. Snyder said in an interview. He commented on a request made In the Commons Fnday by Otto Jelinefc, Progressive Conservative member for Toronto High Park-Humber Valley, for a federal inquiry into how the American Broadcasting! Corp. (ABC) got Counterfeiters clean up By J OTTAWA (CP) - Counterfeiters had a big year in 1973 and the f50 and $100 denominations became their stock in trade, RCMP figures show Statistics compiled by a special RCMP section show that almost $2 million in phoney Canadian and United States currency was passed and seized last year. Of the total, Jl.143.153 was in Canadian funds and bogus $50 and $100 bills made up $700,000 of that An RCMP spokesman said the large-dcnomination counterfeit bills are of extremely good quality and have so far appeared in five different varieties All the bogus |S0 and $100 bills are of the 1954 design, but there are small differences among the five types The first example was seiz- \h EATON’S RECORD SPECIALS •^Èsass.

The face and back both bore the plate number three and the signatures were those of J.R. Beattie, deputy-govemor of the Bank of Canada, and Louis Rasminsky, former governor of the bank. The second type was first found in Toronto a month later. These bills also t»re the plate number three but the second signature was that of J.E.Coyne, Mr. Rasminsky’s predecessor. The first phoney $100 biU turned up in Joliet, Que., in August. The faceplate number was two and the backplate number three. The sipatures were those of Mr. Beattie and Mr Rasminsky Another series of counterfeit 100s was found in Longueuil, Que., in September. The faceplate number was three and the backplate was four. Again, the signatures were those of Mr. Beattie and Mr. Rasminsky. The last series of bogus 100s were found in Florida last month with backplate and frontplate both numbered two and bearing the signatures of Mr. Beattie and Mr. Coyne. The frontplate and backplate numbers are not the same as the serial numbers. They refer to the plate set from which the bill was printed and are found on all bills, although they are obscure and hard to spot An RCMP spokesman said the bogus bills are extremely hard to detect especially if they are presented face down. While the orange-brown color was good, the Queen's portrait on the face was not as sharp as-in a genuine bill. He said only the portrait and the plate numbers give the bills away as phoney. They were very well made. He said the counterfeit bills are printed from negatives or plates and once the plates were made, the bills could be produced in any print shop. Serial numbers were no problem and were simply stamped on. As an added touch, the counterfeiters have inked bogus planchettes on to their products Planchettes are the small green dots found on paper money. Some are on the surface and can be scraped off with a fmgemail, while others are part of the paper itself. In the case of the bogus currency, the planchettes were just applied with green ink Although the paper used was not real note paper, it was of good quality. rights to broadcast the Olympics. Mr. Jelinek said another U S. network, CBS, was asked to give the (Juebec government $5 million in bidoiiw for the contract, taut that CBS had refused. He also said a third U.S. network, NBC, had offered $32.9 million, about $7 million more than ABC, “with no strings attached.” At the time the $25 million contract for television rights throughout tbe U.S. was signed, members of both ABC and the organising committee maintained that no counteroffer had ever been received from NBC. In the Commons, Prime Minister Trudeau told Mr. Jelinek that he has had no discussions with the Quebec government about the matter. It was not government policy to interfere in matters of provincial authority. In Los Angeles, a spokesman for the ABC denied that the network made any payment to the Quebec government or participated in “an under-the-table deal” with the committee to win the television rights "These charges have apparently been circulated by another network that had hoped to secure the U.S. television rights but failed,” an ABC spokesman said. said.    ' Col. Philip A. Neatby of Reina and OtUwa, director of tod plans and of amHir in the armed forces, said an interview Friday the highly sophisticated weapon inv<rives the use of a computer attached to a missile by wires. The forces wiU start taking delivery in 1OT5 of 150 of antitank units, which weigh 200 pounds and can be mounted on vehicles, helicopters and on the ground. H will be used by Canadian NATO forces in Europe as well as infantry and reconnaissance units in Canada    , . . Announcement of acquisition of the new weapon comes only a short time after the Middle East war focused attention on Uie tank and antitank weapons. Both sides had high losses and there was some talk that the role of the tank was on the way out. But Col. Neatby said the tank will be very much a part of land forces at least until almost the end of this century. He said war machine technology goes in cycles. If tbe tank was slowed by soiAis-ticated weaponry in the Middle East, then armed forces must find a way to make themselves more mobile again. The colonel said the T.G.W. system is comparable to Soviet-made systems used by Arabs with some devasting effects against Israeli tanks. The defence department said the weapon is designed to destroy bunkers, gun r positions, vehicles and other targets as well as other vehicles, It Is used by tbe U.S. Army as well as the forces of West Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy, Israel and Iran. At $30 million for ISO weapons, plus spare parts, technical publications, Urget and missiles, the cost per unit including missiles breaks down to about $200,000. The weapon is the fourth generation medium anti-tank missile used by the Canadian Forces since the Second World War. It is replacing a 106-mlIlimetre recoilless rtfle used by the forces since the 1960s and the SS-llBl guided missile system used since the mid-1960s. Its acquisition is just one more multi-million dollar purchase announced by the defence department since a three-year freeze on its budget was ended last year. D. D.
