Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 1HI IETH8RIDGE HERAID Tueidoy. January 16, 1973 Silence is Golda Israel's tiP-flappp.ble Premier Goida Meir spent last weekend in Paris ai- tencmis a Lonierence of iniernation.il Presided Pompidou of France was outspoken in his denunciation both o; conference held in ParU, ar.d Mrs. Meir's attendance, her presence as interfer- ence in French domestic politics. H'.s public objections simply served t3 stress his own worries about the cialisi Communist alliance which may cost him dear in the elections to be held in March. He has, in fact, been made to appear as if he were running scared. Mrs. Meir, or. me other hand, has scored by remaining silent. She made no public appearances in Pans, can- celled participation in a press con- ference, and depaned as quietly as she came. She did not extend her blessing to Mitterand's Socialist-Com- munist alliance, a fact which M. Pompidou should have anticipated. Until international communism ends its vendetta against Israel, Mrs Meir would scarcely wish to give t_he new French political team her approval. Score a win in the complicated game of international politics to Pre- mier Golda Meir, and a defeat for the urbane super-sophisticated Presi- dent Pompidou, with added rider that thin skins are unbecoming to heads-of-state. Mintoff haggles again Maltese Prime Minister Dom Min- toff is at it again trying to squeeze the las; I'anhins out of the British in return :or the use of the island bases bv British sen-icemen. Mintoff claims compensation for devaluation of the pouiid ar.ol savs the tariff of 14 mil- lion pounds, shared jointly by Great Britain and several other NATO coun- tries isn't enough. He wants it upped bv 10 per cent. He conveniently for- rets that before the F.jreemer.t with Er.tain was signed last spring, that British negotiators had refused Malta the right io reopen negotiations in the event oi devaluation. It is possible that other NATO coun- tries w'ho subsidize the operations on Malta may chip in to raise the ante, but in the long run Mintoff's tactics won't pay off. Mai la needs most of all is loreijTi investment. And what poten- tial customer is going to put his con- fidence and his money into an en- terprise on an island outpost, govern- ed "by a haggler of uncertain political principles and no business acumen? A murderous tune From Cairo comes a report that the four Black Septerr.brists accused cf Jordan's Prime Mini- ster Wasii fell m 1971, have been allowed to leave Egypt. The men were released en bail part way through the tr.al which was, in reality, a propaganda exhibition. They have been livmj in luxury in Cairo ever since, proclaiming publicly that they are oui to ''get" King Hussein. Libva's strongman. Colonel Muam- niar Qaddafi. has been loud in his praises of the Sepiembrists. the killer- orsanization for, among other a'.rociLies, the Munich mas- sacre.

The author oi tii5 one is unknovvii. so li he or she happens io see this, it is hoped the ku535 Lhat are due Ns accepted To any who know and appreciate the saga of the iron horse, as well as tc those who go along with the modem predilection for resounding titles for even the most mundane activities, it will seem most fit- ting that railway buffs -sill henceforth known as ferro-equinologists. It TSS announced recently itet both sail associations at the University of Alberta, cumbering some 4500 academic and non- academic employees, have endorsed a pol- icy that the University should accept re- sponsibility for helping staff members ad- dicted to drugs or alcohol on the same basis as it vrould these who suffer from sny other illness or disability. The uni- versity has agreed to consider this policy. Undoubtedly this is a huaiaae attitude, and in keeping with the modem view that society itself is responsible for most of the ills tha; beset its members. There may be the odd soldier abcut. though, who re- members the treatment society used to mete out to those with self inflicted wo'onds. Tr.e niher day. wher. asked i: is a serious problem at one of the lixal educa- tional a senior admirustrator for the institution ''dechned to comment.'' exce-x to observe tliac theft is ere of so- ciety's major problems. One help thinking that if stealing were not a problem at the institution in question. to tha; effect would hardly be regarded as a secret. A ners story datelined Managua.

One can scarcely resist asking, ''How dare Professions are responsible fsr establish- ing and enforcing the standards under which members go about their business. Part of that responsibility is a code of pro- fessional ethics. These vary from profes- sion to profession, as they must; doctors con't relate Io hospitals the way lawyers rio Io courts, and the relationships between a dentist and his patients differ from those between an architect ar.d his clients. Bui codes of ethics all have a couple of things in common: yrircn into all cf them is a strict prohibition of criticism bv one member of another, and unwritten but no less observed for that Ls tin under- standing that no layman is competent to criticize, iet judge, a professiocal. Wvjch brings up an interesting question. Assuming tha: now and then someone less than perfect manages to worm his way into a profession, w-'co blows u-iiistle if members won't and non-members can't? A recent story, commenting on the Utili- ties Board ruling that provided for a 10 per cent id-ease in the price of mili. appeared under the headline, Dairymc-a unhappy with mil1? price hike. A little inquiry indicates that consumers, too, are somewhat jess than ecstatic about it. A recent Chicago Daily News cartoon carries a biting. two-'.evel message.

The lex: oi E sigrJTicar.c and Liile-noced speech by Pro- fessor Karvey Brooks, at the Council of Foreign Relations, is at once a and fngin- enir.g As perhaps the most re- spected engineer srsd practical scientist o: Harvard Unjversicy, Professor Brooks argues that the worid has the technology to produce, in the long run, enough energy goals for even iis almost insatiable re- quirements. But has it the wis- dom to combine and disiribuLe the resources of 130 separate. q-uarrelsoine national fr-.e political task, ir, other vrords. far more cifficul: than the technical and nay v.-eii fail, with disastrous result for hu- manity entire. In the short run. Professor Brooks acrees. the United as -he greatest national v-.il] face a grave shortage try to over- cnrr.e by vas: imports of fuel Er.d materials. When the price system, or law of sup- pjy ard demand. raises the cor. of these prod- uce, the present reckless waste may be cjrbed but the de- V.-01 keep nsing. Ey :3S5, the United States v.ill have io spend S30 billion anualiy on foreign fuels E5 ssrlnst crjy billion in 1970. By the year 2000. it will use minerals worth 5117 billion annually provide only S-5o billion worh of them from i-.s o-AT! production. To an economist sues: figures, if approximately accurate, must be appalling. To the United S.s'.crs coveriiniect. already run- a high foreign exchange rieiicit. they pose a fi- nancial dilemma without prece- dent Hcr-v are imports OD this scale to be paid for? Ard. still more cuestioiab'-e, v.iil the foreign owners of mater-als be vv-lliirg io them, at any price, even if payment is of- fered in manufactured Ameri- can exports or services? The Umied States is nor in transition from near-sufficiency to dependence, for the first tine, on ibs world and an open, v. tracins system while 11? native pro-.ec'.ionisa are pro- po-ir.g the opposite.

He can foresee a nuclear breakthrough in the production of energy after a time of des- perate shortage. He can foresee enough energy to produce a reasonably adequate supply of goods. But he caccot foresee (who a breakthrcugh in tee politics of the agreement amid the nations to share the world's resources as they are noi shared now. Here, of course, we eaccunter the supreme threat to human civilization as pictured by the ciub of Rome and investi- gators. They do net agree with scientists like Professor Broois who think that tne technical problem can be solved if the po- litical problem is mastered. On this contrary, they argue tha: bodi problems are insoluble if the world's popolation continues to eiplode, to eihausr its and to poison its ennronmem. Both the optimists and pessimists agree, ita: the -orifl's affairs c2EMt go along indefinitely as they are going DOW: tha; [he tola! de- mand for materials of all kinds must soon change those eco- nomic and political affairs more drastically than any Eovern- IME! has yet realized "or. at least admitted.

How can the United .Slates, or any customer, pay for them? Only by increased ex- purts Io Canada ar.d directly, or indirectly, by multilateral trade through other nations. Where does all this leave a Canada eager to expor. manu- factured, labor-intensive goods instead of raw materials but no: eager for competitive imports' More imponani. ho-A long can even Canada's greai treasury nf natural wealth star.d the strain? These are momentous Issues frr tomorrow if not for today. Yet. clearly, Canada has hardly begun to grasp the nature of the decisions net far ahead of it, Kor Ihe time being. are submerged by a political crisis which, in historic terms, will be brief and unimportant. When the crisis has passed, however, He must reassess our place in Ihe whole changing fc.ieme cf tilings as they move down the crowded turnpike. The proposed Koolenay and Railroad in the souiheast- ein corner of British Colum- bia is once again holding its breath. The latest "wait some more" came in (he form of a yearer.d hearing by the Canadian Trans- port Commission Md in Otta- wa. Officials of Ihe Koolenay and Elk Railroad at Femie, B.C., and the Canadian Pacific Railway in Montreal both said: "All we can do now is wait for a decision.'' Financial observers were qu'ck to point out that it isn't only Ihe two railroads that are sfiec-.ed. Major developers of huge quantities of natural re- sources in the southwest corn- er of Canada's most westerly province have also besn C2usht in the cross-fire. So have allied and other service industries. A decision by the Japanese his been described as a "real blow1' by industry. The Japan- ese, who invested niillions of dollars in B.C.'s re- source develoDmer.t. have token s position of witho'dbg addi- tional development funds.
