Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Threat to global peace World arms race building to peak TORONTO (CP) Tbe arms race to buUding to a peak to line major regions of tbe world and will produce i signifi- cant threat to global peace be- tween now and 1975. This the conclusion of two-year study carried at by the Canadian Peace Research Institute to determine tfae pre- dictability of war. Dr. Norman Alcock, president of the institute since it waa founded in 1961, said in an later- view the study uncovered a reg- ular pattern in die occurrence of war. The patten, directly related to the build-up of anas, indi- the world now is entering one of the most hazardous pe- riods in modern history, he said. "We see the years 1972 to 1973 at being particularly dangerous, the most dangerous period for the past 30 he said. "It's a time for ertreme cau- tion on the part of world lead, ers." PICKS DANGER SPOTS' Dr. Alcock said the potential for war during the period looms most ominously in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Dr. Alctock said the institute made a computer analysis of arms spending in 117 world na- tions, determining two factors in each. 1.

The year-by-year locreast in tte percentage. It found a pattern of arms races peaking periodically in each region and leading to war. Dr. Aloock said the build-up hu peaked every three years in the Middle East, every seven yean in Asia and every five years in Africa, which the toeti- tute has classed M part of on east-west region including the United States, the Soviet Union and Latin America. "Between mid-1972 and he said, "We can expect arms races to peak in all three re- gions."

Tfae disease was confirmed only In Texas last year. "I would be surprised if VEE hits tbe northern states in epi- demic proportions in 1972 said Dr. Wells. However, 'It would not be re- alistic to shut our eyes and as- sume the disease won't be com- he added. The vaccine, now used extensively in tee U.S., will be available in Can- ada in Hie spring.

KEEP RESTRICTIONS Stringent regulations clampa on tbe Canadian border las summer to protect the country' horse population from VEE an swamp fever also will remain in place, Ottawa officials said. VEE, which affects horses much like sleeping sickness originated in Venezuela in 1935 It was diagnosed in the U.S. for the first time at Brownsville Texas, June There were suspected cases o the -disease in Louisiana bu these were never confirmed said Dr. R. J. McClenaghan director of tbe contagious dis- eases divisions. The only sleeping sickness re- ported in Canada last year was in British Columbia, be added But it was strictly a Canadian strain. The rules governing imports of horses from the U.S. were imposed last year during the Texas outbreak of VEE and an outbreak of swamp fever Eastern Canada, mainly On tario. NEED CERTIFICATE As a result, a certifi cate was needed to transport a horse acnes the Canada-U.S border. U.S. officials require only a certificate thawing the animal is free from infectious or oouU gious diseases and has been in Canada or the U.S. for the pre ceeding GO days. Tfae certificate is valid for 30 days, But Canadian regulations are much uiuie strict. A Canadian owner should carry a certificate show ing the animal was tested fot swamp fever within six months said Dr. Wells, so he can the horse back Into Canada. A second certificate, from a U.S. veterinarian, must show the horse had been exam- ined no more than seven days prior to returning and was free from infectious or contagious decides to If the ho vaccinate the animal _.

The study covered Inter- national wars and "major" cm Of the 02 ware that have bro- ken out since IMS, Dr. Alcock sail, the institute found that only the India-PaJostan war in December did not fit the pat- tern. If it had been edx months later, it would hive fitted actly. Of the 117 nations studied Canada emerged a> one of the most peaceful. "Canada has been the largest nation in the world to com ently decrease arms Dr. Alcock said. Dr. Alcock said the study, carried out under a Can- ada Council grant, showed that countries involved in military alliances such as NATO, ffl and the Warsaw Pact are ac- tually more likely to engage in war than others. "Contrary to popular notion, the UN hu done a job for us in UK past. It has preventet the flames from flaring up and does, in fact, offer hope for world peace." Ann crews urges pilot in article TORONTO (OP) A veteran Air Canada pilot wants flight crews to be armed with guns in an effort to discourage air hi- jackings. In the current issue of Pilot, the journal of the Canadian Air Line Pilots Association, Captain J. H. R. Nener says "it is way past time that we made some positive and aggressive steps" to eliminate hijacking. In an editorial in the game Issue, association president Cap- tain Charles Smpson empha- sizes the need for new legisla- tion to close loopholes in the Judicial system which make it to prosecute hijackers. Mr. Nener, an Air Canada pilot for 12 years, said "security at most Canadian airports is weak or and gnxnd security can't prevent an armed hijacker from board- ing a plane. "I contend that the pilot group can look only to them- selves for security and protec- tion from hijackers and mad he said. Tbe use of firearms by pilots in "routine" hijackings would be wrong, he said, but they could be used to avoid disaster. A note accompanying the arti- cle it expressed Mr. Ne- mr'a position and not the policy of tbe association.
