Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, January 14, 1971 U.S. envoy fired over remarks Meg's former beau back in the news UNITED NATIONS (CP) -Another United States ambassador is resigning, this time amid reports that he got in trouble over remarks he made about Canada's recognition of China whole in Moncton, N.B. It was announced Wednesday that Ambassador Glenn Olds, U.S. representative on the Economic and Social Council, has submitted his resignation and wishes to return to academic life. German miracle over BONN (Reuter) - West Germany, one of the great economic success stories since the Second World War, recognizes that "the miracle" is over and Industrial growth will slow this year. But German economists are In open conflict about how much of a slowing there will be and its impact on the nation. They are far apart on forecasts of expected rises in prices and wages. The cost of living, about 3.8 per cent higher in 1970 than 1969, will again be the battleground over which the political parties and economic interest groups will fight their campaigns. Government experts have forecast price rises of about three per cent but with the rate of increase slowing during the year. Industry and independent analysts say that a rise of 3.5 per cent is more likely and it could go even higher. AGREE GROWTH SLOWER Company earnings and mass Incomes will grow more slowly in 1971 than in 1970. On that, all sides agree. The government expects Income from commercial activity to grow by only three to four per cent in 1971 after the estimated increase of more than six per cent in the last year. The five "wise men" who form the government's independent advisory committee of economists expect a rise of only one per cent. Business organizations themselves say they hope to boost earnings by five per cent. Employees' gross income which in 1970 gained a post-war record of 17.5 per cent should grow by about 10 per cent, the government says. Business puts this figure at 8.5 per cent. The big slowdown is expected m the capital goods industry. Government estimates say capital investment will grow by about seven per cent-a third of last year's increase. Economics Minister Karl Schiller described this as a Healthy sign in the fight against Inflation, putting an end to the major squeeze on capacity which he said was largely responsible for rising prices. So far, only the labor unions have publicly demanded government measures to re-stimulate the economy. Government and business representatives rejected the move in view of infla . tionary pressures. Former admiral dies at 85 LONDON (Reuter) - Admiral Lord John Cronyn Tovey, 85, one of Britain's most successful naval commanders in this century, died in Madeira Tuesday. His reputation among seamen for bravery and verve began during the First World War. In the Battle of Jutland he turned his wounded ship back into the German firing line to discharge some remaining torpedoes. Rudyard Kipling immortalized this incident in his book, Sea Warfare. After various commands, Tovey was appointed commander-in-chief of the Home Fleet in 1941 during the Second World War. In this role he personally took part in the destruction of the German battleship Bismark. His enthusiasm for the fight was exemplified in a message from his flagship to the British vessels moving in on the German battleship: "Close the range. Get closer, get closer. I can't see enough hits." The Washington Post says there are strong indications that Olds was dismissed. Among other things, he was reported in trouble with the government over remarks he made at a news conference at Moncton where he delivered a speech to a YMCA conference. Sources here said Olds was asked to comment on Canada's recognition of China and he had repeated the U.S. line. Officials of the American UN delegation said the incident was not "ger-main" to his resignation. EMBASSY NOT INFORMED The Post says that Olds had not informed the U.S. embassy in Ottawa that he was visiting in Canada. Indications here and in Washington are that Olds may or may not have informed the embassy of his presence in Canada but that the main trouble was the publicity given to his China remarks. Apparently some news stories said that Olds was criticizing the Canadian move whereas he was only repeating the U.S. line on the matter. Ambassador Charles Yost, head of the U.S. mission here, resigned recently amid reports that he was in effect dismissed. George Bush, a former congressman, will replace him next month. SPEECH NOT CLEARED Reports last year said that Yost was in trouble with the government, partly because of a U.S. speech delivered in the General Assembly on the ques Hon of admission of China. The speech was widely interpreted as meaning that the U.S was moving toward a two-China policy. U.S. officials backtracked a bit on that later and it is reported that the speech did not receive clearance from the state department's higher echelon. The "reports were never confirmed. At his news conference In Moncton, Olds said the U.S. had been embarrassed by Canada's recognition of China but that the U.S. would not "presume to tell Canada" what its foreign policy should be. LONDON (AP) - Peter Townsend, whose romance with Princess Margaret made news in the 1950s, is back in the headlines as a best-selling author. His 455-page Duel of Eagles depicts the conflict between British and German airmen in the Second World War. The book first appeared in France, where it sold well. The London edition, published at $6.60, is in its third printing. Next week Townsend will be in New York when Simon and Schuster bring out an American edition. Townsend at 55 is still much like the slim and personable fel- Club extends press awards EDMONTON (CP) - The Edmonton Press Club has extended its journalism awards to cover all of Alberta and has added several new categories, president Bill Rodger said here. The new categories will be presented for general reporting, editorial writing, public service, news photography and editorial cartooning in newspa-papers, magazine writing and service in radio and television. The club's three previous annual awards were the Basil Dean Award for journalism, the William Hogle Award for broadcast reporting and the Stanley Moher Award for sports. Mr. Rodger said he hoped the awards may also be extended to include the Northwest Territories. The awards, based on content and effectiveness of presentation, will be presented in late November. low who once captivated Margaret. The Queen's sister called off her romance with Group Capt. Townsend in 1956, and in 1960 became the bride of Antony Armstrong-Jones, now Lord Snowdon. Townsend married Marie-Luce Jamagne, an attractive Belgian tobacco heiress, in 1959, when she was 19. TOOK TWO YEARS He took two years to gather material for the book, travelling widely to talk to the Germans who had fought the Allies, so he could balance the picture obtained from British pilots and official sources on both sides. Townsend distilled the whole into a semi-documentary record that is part memoir, part battle and part history of the rival air forces. Townsend shot down the first German bomber to be brought down on British soil in the Sec- ., ond World War, and was credited with shooting down 11 German planes in all. Since leaving the RAF in 1956, when he held the post of air attache in Brussels, Townsend has been a wine buyer, a public relations man, travel film maker, and a chit-chat personality on Radio Luxembourg. Grocery prices drop OTTAWA (CP) - The federal prices and incomes commission says grocery prices in major Canadian stores declined in December, but a spokesman was unable to say by how much or whether the decline was greater or smaller than previously. A price-monitoring system was set up last spring by the commission in co-operation with 28 major Canadian retailers. The main food retailers send the commission current shelf prices once or twice a month for selected food groupings, but results are not published. The spokesman said there might be about 60 food groupings covered. The Dominion Bureau of Statistics traces price changes across Canada for 76 specific PETER TOWNSEND . . .
