Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Canada may be forced to drop out NEW DELHI (CP).- Prime Minister Trudeau raised the possibility twice Tuesday that Canada might be forced to drop out of the Commonwealth. He told a group of students at Nehru University that if a certain number of the 31 Commonwealth states-he did not say how many-withdrew from the organization because of the South African arms Issue, a chain reaction might set in. In such a case, Canada might "want to be as pure as the others." Later at a news conference he said he hopes India will do what it can to prevent any breakup of the Commonwealth on the arms issue. But if some Commonwealth countries did withdraw and a chain reaction set in, India like Canada would be in a difficult position about' what to do. Trudeau said after his talks with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi that he1 expects active support from India to try to keep the Commonwealth together at the Singapore conference and to find some accommodation on the issue of a projected British arms sale to South Africa. Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS fMULTILUX. OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. Trudeau told reporters he repeated Canada's position to British Prime Minister Heath here Monday night. That position is that the arms sale is unwise because of its consequences for the Commonwealth. At Singapore meanwhile Commonwealth Secretary-General Arnold Smith said tonight that outsiders are trying to drive a wedge between Britain and African countries over the issue of arms sales to South Africa. Asked at a news conference if Speaking of town fools, Moose Jaw elects them MOOSE JAW, Sask. (CP) -"Vancouver appoints town fools, Moose Jaw elects them" was one taxpayer's reaction during a city council meeting last night to discuss a controversial sidewalk bylaw. Guerrilla camps in Quebec? OTTAWA (CP) - The government was asked Tuesday whether any guerrilla camps have been found.in Quebec and, if so, whether any arrests were made as a result. Solicitor-General Jean-Pierre Goyer, replying to Percy Noble (PC-Grey-Simcoe) in the Commons, said he would look into the matter and "see what can be revealed." The amendment to the traffic bylaw requires pedestrians to use the right-hand side of sidewalks and provides for a maximum fine of $100 or 30 days in jail. The embarrassed taxpayer was one of many who crowded into City Hall to attend the meeting and ha. waved the sign stating his opinion. Since the amendment was passed Jan. 4, it has prompted chuckles all over North America..One resident, tongue-in-cheek, has invented a hat equipped with headlights, turning indicators, tail-light s, emergency flashers and a horn. The bylaw cannot go into effect, however, until approved by the highway traffic board, and among the civic administration officials opposing the move is Aid. Jack Armstrong who intends to. move it be repealed at a council meeting Jan. 18 ' South Africa is among the outsiders1, he replied: "That would be, I should have thought, a reasonable guess on your part." Smith, a Canadian, is secretary-general of the Commonwealth Secretariat. Smith added he did not wish to be specific in naming any countries. Questioners had also mentioned the Soviet Union and China. The secretary-general agreed that the arms question will be one of the most contentious topics at the Commonwealth prime ministers conference which opens here Thursday. "The problem is soluble. The decision is for the heads of government." Spalding layoff plan announced BRANTFORD, Ont. (CP) -A. G.

WtdnMday, January 13, 1971 - THIICTHBRIDOI HERALD - IS Jamieson sidesteps Wardair questions OTTAWA (CP) - Transport Minister Don Jamieson sidestepped questions in the Commons Tuesday about the effect of a Canadian transport commission ruling on charter air companies on the ground that the companies may appeal to the cabinet "It's important not to prejudge the case," Mr. Jamieson told Jack Horner (PC-Crowfoot) who had asked for a statement from the minister on the ruling. The commission has required charter air companies to make 100-per-cent deposits in advance of flights in a move to protect passengers from being stranded abroad. Mr. Horner said the ruling Has had a serious,effect on the interestof Edmonton-based Wardair charter company. Mr. Jamieson said Wardair has proved itself to be a good company but it is important as well that passengers be protected. The company could appeal the commission ruling ei- ther to himself or to the cabinet. Marcel Lambert (PC-Edmonton West) called on the minister to recognize that Canadian travellers will be able to use U.S. charter flights, which are not bound by the commission ruling.

JEEP TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 Missile buildup in Asia WASHINGTON (Renter) -North Vietnam is building up its missile strength in south areas close to its borders with Laos, the defence department reported today. Department spokesman Jerry Friedhebn said the buildup Included the installation of new SAM-2 missiles as well as a strengthening of existing sites. He said the buildup, which also includes anti-aircraft artillery, has been going on for a period of six months and gives North Vietnam greater capability for firing missiles at U.S. planes operating over Laos. Friedheim said there was no evidence of SAM-2 missiles in Laos. His disclosures followed reports that U.S. planes recently have fired twice at SAM sites in North Vietnam in what the defence department describee as protective reaction strikes. The sites were fired on after the planes, flying in support of B-52 bombing missions in southern Laos, determined they had been locked on by SAM radar. Friedheim said no B-52 bombers have been downed over Laos.
