Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, January 18, 1971 WELDER ALSO WIELDS PAINT BRUSH - Welder Norman Bratty of the United Steel-workers of America straightens one of his paintnigs at the opening of an art exhibition at a downtown Toronto gallery- The gallery is operated by the union for those of its 120,-000 members in Ontario and Western Canada with a floir for the artistic. U.S. investment in Canada drain on Canadian economy By JIM OSBORNE EDMONTON (CP) - A Toronto economist said Saturday that United States investment in Canada now has reached a stage where there is a financial drain on the Canadian economy, and at the moment nothing can be done about it. Abraham. Rotstein, an economics professor at the University of Toronto, said the profits of U.S.-controlled companies in Canada are taking out more than $1.6 billion a year but U.S. investment in Canada has fallen below that level. Curiously enough, he said, much of the financing for these companies to expand in Canada is being done through Canadian banks and with Canadian money. But all the profits are going into American hands. In 1969, about 60 per cent of the expansion of American companies in Canada was paid for In this way. "In other words, we are financing our own takeover." Dr. Rotstein said Canada is the only industrialized country in the non-Communist world without a clear policy about foreign investment. More than $40 billion in U.S. capital was invested in Canada, accounting for 90 per cent of the financial control over such industries as automobiles, rubber, petroleum and tobacco. Dr. Rotstein, speaking for the Committee for an Independent Canada, said he was not advocating nationalization of foreign-controlled industry but the committee was advocating a nunimum of 51 per cent Canadian ownership. He told about 500 persons at a public meeting organized by the committee that Canada's economic growth has not benefited particularly because of the LIKE A CHAPLIN MOVIE-ONLV LlUE!

Dr. Rotstein said that if Canada is to determine Its way of life in the ftuure it must regain control of its economic future. The first step in this direction was a definite policy on foreign ownership. He said the committee's purpose is to get such a policy. How it is drafted is up to the government. But there will not be such a policy unless Canadians demand it. He said since 1960 about 1,000 Canadian corporations have been taken over by American international conglomerate companies which, by 1980, will control two-thirds of world production. Pulp mills wastes spoil many rivers HINTON (CP) - Many mills, especially older ones, have spoiled rivers for many miles downstream by thoughtlessly dumping their wastes, Jack Davis, federal government environment control minister, said Sunday. But he added that the proposed new federal regulations would put a stop to this. "New mills will have to adhere to these or improve on them and older mills, depending on individual circumstances, will have to move to these standards as well over the next five to 10 years." One of the biggest problems faced by pulp mills is the cost of cleaning up and preventing pollution, he said. One challenge facing the scientists is the smell from pulp mills. "We may be well on the verge of solving that one as well." Mr. Davis, speaking at a meeting of the Hinton and district Chamber of Commerce, said there is large-scale government and industry research going on across the country. Today, Mr. Davis will meet with Alberta Health Minister James Henderson in Edmonton to discuss the federal Clean Air Bill, which is expected to become effective in about six weeks. He said the government wants to know the reactions of the provinces before the bill is finally approved. Pop singer weds CALDWELL, N.J.

Douglas sees no threat from NDP radical group TORONTO (CP) - National Leader T. C. Douglas of the New Democratic Party says he can see no threat of the radical Waffle group ever taking over from the party moderates. "I think it is always good in a party to have people pushing forward new ideas, even if I don't agree with some of them," Mr. Douglas said, commenting on a weekend meeting of the party's federal council which saw Waffle influence dominate key policy issues. "I'd be more worried if our party was turning out to be a mutual admiration society," he said in an interview. He said the moderates and militants in the party eventually will "work out some common ground." "I don't think that people any more are frightened because a group of young people discuss ideas which may or may not be radical." He rejected the theory that supporting wholesale nationalization of industry-a Waffle goal-indicates radicalism. Spain and Portugal had more publicly-owned industries than Sweden "yet no one would accuse their governments of radicalism." The Waffles, Mowers of ul- tra-nationalist Prof. Mel Wat-kins, make up less than a third of the 130-member governing council. They won two of three major battles, forcing a revision of the membership in the key resolutions committee to include more women, and committing the council to a policy of federal control of the drug industry. Eighty-three delegates, representing every province but Prince Edward Island, attended the last council meeting before the party's leadership convention April 21-24 in Ottawa. But resolutions approved by the council are only guides for policy decisions taken at the national convention. Many of the more than 15 resolutions discussed here will never reach the convention floor for lack of time. However, council decisions usually have a strong influence on convention delegates. A key battle took place over membership in the powerful resolutions committee which deals with major policy decisions that influence party thinking. The Waffles and feminist factions united to throw out an establishment-proposed slate of 56 names which included only four women and nine Waffle supporters. Students to seek teacher positions EDMONTON (CP)-Dr. Fred Enns, associate dean of the faculty of education, University of Alberta, says many third-year students are planning to seek teaching . positions this spring because they feel school boards prefer to hire minimally-qualified teachers. He told the annual teacher education conference of the Alberta Teachers' Association that these teachers feel they can complete their studies through summer and evening courses' after they have obtained a teaching position. The rumor that teachers are in over-supply has resulted in a decline in first-year enrolment in education courses, he said However, there ore not too many competent and highly qualified teachers. The gap between supply and demand appears to be narrowing, but demand still exceeds supply in towns, villages and the more remote parts of the province, he said. Snowmobile racer dies in mishap OWEN SOUND, Ont. (CP) -A veteran snowmobile racer driving with a broken arm in a cast was killed at the Owen Sound Winter Carnival Sunday when he was thrown from his machine during a race and run over by another snowmobile.

ADDRESS Monument hit DUBLIN (Reuter) - An explosion Sunday damaged a 168-foot-high monument of Daniel O 'C o n n e 11, the first Roman Catholic lord mayor of Dublin. The council also approved h\ 1971 budget of $200,000 after a three-hour closed session Sunday, but gave no details. It also moved to establish an educational foundation in honor of Mr. Douglas and M. J. Caldwell, former CCF leader, which would be financed through a T. C. Douglas Trust Fund. Laurier LaPierre of Montreal, chairman of the committee handling the foundation, said he hopes to have it established by the time the leadership convention arrives, so that it can be announced as a gift to Mr. Douglas for long service to the party. The trust fund would also be a source of campaign funds for the party's federal and provincial wings. The foundation plan Deer was approved after a lengthy debate. It will be "an independent democratic socialist educational foundation."

The officials said the Zambian president used the word "trader" in the context of Heath betraying African Commonwealth members by proposing to sell arms to South Africa. He first used it in a small briefing Saturday morning and then later in an interview with several journalists. Kaunda originally was quoted as saying Saturday: "Mr. Heath, the traitor, doesn't understand what problems he is going to inflict on countries like Zambia, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Botswana and others. "Traitor, I emphasize the word, traitor."- � He said Zambia would not accept a compromise of arms sales of any kind to South Africa'-'our enemy." KILLED IN BLAZE - Georgina Sykes, 13, (left) and her sister Noreen, 11, were among the seven personi killed when fire swept through a three-storey building in Toronto Siunday morning. Apartment fire takes seven lives TORONTO (CP) - Joseph Sykes had a premonition early Sunday when his dog wouldn't stop barking. Five hours later two of his daughters and five other persons died in the worst fire in Toronto in terms of lives lost since February, 1963, when eight died. Mr. Sykes said his two girls, Georgina, 13, and Noreen, 11, went baby-sitting at the borne of Rose Deschamps, 20, against Ills wJl. "I told ihem not to go over there," said the father of 10. "I didn't want them to go over there. I thought they'd come home last night." Mr. Sykes, who has been unable to work for more than a year because of a heart condition, felt something was wrong when his dog started barking at 4 p.m. "He's never done that before," he said. Also killed were Mrs. Deschamps and her two children, Tracy, 15 months and Robin, 3, who lived in a second-floor apartment in a building that also housed a driving school, and Dianna Arsenault, 8, and her brother Daniel, 7, who lived in a third-floor apartment. Their mother Anita Arsenault, 29, leaped barefoot from the rear of the wcond floor. Wear* ing only a dress in the 13-degree weather, she sat in the snow ?nd watched as neighbors with a ladder were driven back by flames. She was in fair condition in hospital today with possible internal injuries and shock. Three other persons were Injured, including a man who stood on a second-floor ledge shouting "My God, the children are in there, somebody help them," until neighbors rescued him with a ladder. Two visitors to the building, Richard Dunlop, 22, who was staying with the Deschamps, and Robert Noble, 35, who was a guest of the Arsenaults, were released from hospital after treatment for smoke inhalation and cuts they suffered smashing windows to get out. Mr. Noble said he had been sleeping on a chesterfield when he awoke choking and heard the screams of the Arsenault children in the next room. "There was nothing I could do," he said. "The room was black with smoke and I couldn't get to them. I crawled to the window, broke it and shoved out the screen," Toronto Fire Chief Charles Chambers said the fire may have started in the kitchen of the Mcond-fknr apartment. ernment action on the report of the royal commission on the status of women and referred to its review committee a statement on women's rights, which included a proposal for divorce by consent.

About 400 persons attended the nomination meeting at a rural high school 20 miles east of Rocky Mountain House, which is 46 miles west of Red Violence grows in Ireland LONDON (AP) - A growing wave of violence in Northern Ireland forced British authorities today to consider tough new measures against the outlawed Irish Republican Army and its rioting supporters. Northern Ireland's prime minister, James Chichester-Clark, was due here later for talks with Home Secretary Reginald Maudling, the British cabinet minister with ultimate responsibility for Ulster. Aides believe Chichester-Clark will demand a change in tactics by the 6,000 British troops whose task since August, 1969, has been to keep order on Northern Ireland's streets. During last week's wave of riots and bomb-throwing in Belfast and Londonderry the army kept to its usual pattern of trying to cordon the rioters inside Catholic localities. Soldiers have only the limited rights of arrest open to any British citizen under common law. Everything fine with Chichester LISBON (AP) - British yachtsman Sir Francis Chichester is sailing in good seas and atmospheric conditions and now is well away from the African coast, Portuguese navy authorities reported Sunday.
