Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta Winston^ s writings presented OTTAWA (CP) - The first volume of Sir Winston Church-lU’s cfdlscted works, putdiih-ed liiy the Library of Imperial History of London, was prcKnted to the jMiiiamen-tan library Tuesday. Ilie presentation, to Ctun* moos ^^er Luclen Lamou-reux, was made by former prime minister Jobn Diefenbalter, on behalf of Lath Spencer Churchill. Mr. Diefenbaker was in the Commons when Sir Winston spoke here in IMI, and the Speaker said that "no living Canadian politician has had a closer associati«! with Sir WinstoD and none can speak with more authority and personal knowledge. ...” Guests at the short ceremony included others who were MPs in 1941-T.C. Douglas (NDP— Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands), Quebec Lt.-Gov. Hughes Lapointe and former justice and finance minister Douglas Abbott. Mr. Diefenbaker referred to Sir Winston as “the greatest exponent of language the English race has ever produced.” Furniture inquiry halted OTTAWA (CP) - The RCMP have been ordered by the Oown attom^’s office to halt their investigation into equipment and furniture miss* ing from the consumer and coiporate affairs dc^rtment. RCMP seized several thousands of dollars in government equipment and furniture Dec. lS-19 on raids on the homes of seven consumer and corporate affairs employees here. The goods included typewriters, desks, tables, chairs and other assorted items. A spokesman tor the Crown attorney’s office said Tuesday that the investigation has been dropped because it cannot be proven that the employees had intended to steal the items. No charges have been laid. The spokesman said that the employees merely had signed out the goods at the department warehouse.

Soviet detente line begins to harden FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE omcAi ftiscaimoN co. m nk I' I    . By LEO GRULIOW Christian Science Monitor MOSCOW, Russia - The Soviet line on detente is hardening, but not in the way that most foreign commentators have been speculating. Kremlinologists have been guessing that "he’s down, he’s up” — “the policy has shifted” - “there are rifts among the Soviet leaders." There is nothing here to indicate any change in Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev’s position as party chief. Despite rumors of prospective changes among other members of the Politburo — Moscow is an echo chamber of rumors — none has materialized, and any changes that may occur seem unlikely to be related to policy differences. But if the line-of detente is hardening, what has changed? The West itself has changed — by bringing down to earth some of the high hopes held forth earlier this year for American trade on favorable terms, conclusion of a European security pact before New Year’s, and a peace settlement with Japan. FRAIL Ttie U.S. troop alert during the Mideast crisis showed how frail was the understanding between Moscow and Washington. After the euphoria of Mr. Brezhnev’s visits with Western leaders in 1973, a long period of hard bargaining lies ahead now between East and West. This applies to relations with. ~ The United States, where Congress has blocked favorable trade terms. —    France, where government officials have criticized U.S.-Soviet collaboration. —    West Germany, where the status of West Berlin CONTINUING . . .

Even India, where ties with the Soviet Union are strong, has turned a cold shoulder to Kremlin advocacy of an Asian pact In other words, the summit meetings of 1973 oidn't resolve the hard issues, and Soviet media reflect the tough problems that remain in East' West detente. RELATIONSHIP Detente, as the Soviets see it, is not simply peace, but an adversary relationship with the West. The adversary relationship gains meaning when one remembers that the Soviet Union is not only a country, but the leader of a worldwide cause. As spokesman for the country, Mr. Brezhnev stresses the desire for peace and trade. As spokesman for Communism, he emphasizes that the ideological conflict goes right on. ' The conflict often spills over into fighting, he says — and, as a Communist, be blames “imperialism." His aim is not to end the capitalist-Communist conflict, but to keep it from breaking into terrible wars. Other Kremlin leaders entrusted with particular spheres — foreign policy, military affairs, economics and trade, ideology — inevitably put greater or lesser emphasis on peace and trade or on the ideological conflict, depending on their special jobs. Defense Minister Andrei Grechko leans hard on military pr^aredness and “vigilance.” Foreign Minister Anorei Gromyko focuses upon the diplomacy of peace By PETlilR C. STUART Ckrltttaa ScIcmc Moaltor LONDON, England -Uncelebrated and pracUcally unnoticed, BriUin has marked its first annivemry in the European CiHnmon Market. Last year’s entry was hmlded with roty forecasts and a 10-day Fanfare for Europe nationwide ex* travagan^. This year — with the country preoccupied by its most austere economic winter since tite Second World War -there was no public observance. Britain’s getting<acquainted year in the “new Europe” has been disillusioning. One year ago 38 per cent of surveyed Britons favored joining the Common Market. Now that minority has shrunk to 31 per cent. In terms of its impact on tbeir personal lives, only 22 per cent endorse the European Econwnic Community. FAILED “In one respect we have demonstrably failed,” admits John Davies, Britain’s coordinating Minister for Europe. “We have not managed to make the community a real and attractive prospect to the man or woman in the street." The reasons are partly concrete, partly circumsta»-tial- —    EEC membership has cost Britain a net |204 million. This difference between its contributions to the Brussels budget and its receipts has gone mostly for continental farm subsidies. —    The EEC has conspicuously failed in the past year to tadcle such publicly important issues as energy resources and aid for depressed areas (which include 40 per cent of Britain). —    Britain's inaugural year in the Common Market also had the misfortune to coincide with an 18 per cent jump in food prices, a plunging pound sterling, and the power starved three-day work week. The misfortunes cannot all be blamed on the Common Market. In the case of food prices, for ejtample, EEC farm support costs added only about 1 per cent of the total increase in British housewives' grocery bills. BENEFITS On the other hand a poll by the Economist magazine does show 84 per cent of the country’s wrgest companies still ejqMct long-term benefits from membership in the MaHcet and three-fourths of them think they would be harmed if Britain were to withdraw. Yet even some of the bright spots of EEC membership often seem, in British eyes, hedged with dark clouds. ' Europe’s new-found sense of political identity — the nine member nations sometimes speaking as one voice on European security and the Middle East — increasingly is won at the expense of antagonizing Britain’s old diplomatic friend, the United States. And the upsurge in British trade with its new continental partners (exports up 37 per cent in the first 11 months) failed to prevent the country’s foreign trade deficit from plunging at a record rate near year’s ettd. Pew here suggest that Britain, v*ich joined the 15-year^old Common Market along with Ireland and Denmark, should flatly pull out. But many — 42 per cent in a poll last summer — urge that the entry terms be renegotiated. They include the opposition Labor Party and the organized labor movement. But even many opponents concede that just one year may be too soon to judge Britain’s place in the “new Europe ” CLEVELAND DIES BALTIMORE, Md.
