Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SOME FEVER - Dick Allison, a captain in the fire department at Eugene, Oregon, went up in smoke during a training session at the Eugene Hospital. Allison was covered by an asbestos sheet, which he ignited after sprinkling gasoline on it. Technicians and nurses quickly extinguished the fire in the test. Canadian troops out of front line OTTAWA (CP) - The Canadian ground forces in Europe, halved in the past year to 2,800 from about 6.000 men, have apparently given up their former front line NATO position for a fence department spokesman in reserve, rather than the for- rear reserve role in the south- said Friday planners regard as mer response of dashing to ac- west corner of Germany. "extremely reasonable" the tive defence positions. While the precise job of the suggestion that the response to The battle group, equipped force is a military secret, a de- an attack would be to hold back with tanks and armored person- CAPRICORN PUT-ON PUT ON ALL H.I.S.

With the move-and the si multaneous cut in strength-the ground force also switched NATO affiliations to a U.S- com mand area from the British commander responsible for the north German area. DON'T AGREE ON JOB By the end of October's move, the Canadians had still not come to an agreement with the U.S. commanders on their new job in the south, well behind the brunt of any potential Soviet in vasion through central Europe. The reserve role has been expected since Prime Minister Trudeau announced in April 1969 that the force would be trimmed and the move was an nounced shortly afterward. Some observers have suggested that the force would disperse into the forested hills of the Lahr area-even across the Rhine River into France-if a Soviet attack materialized. Defence department spokes men stress that the current role is strictly temporary. Expected this spring Is the government's white paper on defence policy, which will out line the make-up and tasks of the Canadian Forces after 1972 IMPORTANT YEAR That year is important. The big gun of the force, the Centu-l ion tank, is expected to be obsolete by about 1974. And it would take about two years to line up a replacement and get it operational in the field. The decision on the post-1972 role of the force therefore must be made fairly quickly. An alternative has the force moving to an air-mobile role-giving up the tanks and personnel carriers for light guns that can be flown quickly to trouble spots around the flanks of Europe. The big drawback of this option-apart from strategic issues-is the high cost of the air craft that would be required. ^incidentally, the weapon of the 2,000-man air group in Germany -the CF-104 strike-recon uaissance jet-will also have to be replaced in the mid-70s. The air group now is testing the CF-5-just off the assembly line -for a possible European mis sion. The government has bought 115 CF-5s, but' has put some in storage for lack of work. The bill for those aircraft is $212 million. This week the ground force began its first major practice exercise since going south to Lahr. More than 900 track and wheeled vehicles, with M-109 self-propelled howitzers and Centurions, made the 300-mile trip to the 57,000-acre U.S. train ing area at Grafenwoehr for their annual operational evalua lion. cnce-A-Year Discount Sale Hanes Hosiery Starts Thursday Dial Buy Line 328-8811 to Fill Hosiery Needs Luxury Hanes Lines on Sale Through January 23. luxury Walking Sheer Slocking in plain knit nylon. gfl ^5 Reinforced heel and toe.
