Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta S - THE lETHBftlDGE HERALD - Tuotday, January 19, 1971 Thcmt will step down UNITED NATIONS (AP) -U.N. Secretary-General U Thant said Monday he has no intention of serving beyond the expiration of his present term at the end of 1971. Thant, now in his 10th year as secretary-general, made the statement in response to a question at a wide-ranging news conference. He will be 62 Friday. He had these additional comments on international issues: He does not favor participation of the United States or the Soviet Union in any peacekeeping force in the Middle East. He believes that Britain and France might play such a role, but that it would be unwise to put the two super powers in a military position in such a sensitive part of the world. He denounced acts of terrorism and "hooliganism" such as have occurred against the So- viet and Egyptian missions to the United Nations. Ho disclosed the U.N. secretariat already is preparing for V THANT the eventual admission of Communist China to the United Nations, but he does not expect his to occur before 1972. Success hasn't changed Jamieson OTTAWA (CP) - Those who remember Don Jamieson the broadcaster as he stomped splay-footed into his Newfoundland TV studio to rattle off a 1^-minute newscast without a script will be glad to know that nothing has changed in the face of political success. He now stomps splay-footed into the Commons, also without a script and, in a consensus that includes opposition opinions, usually emerges as the top performer in the often-tough daily question period. Yes, he still drags deeply on his cigarette, snapping it out of his mouth as though he had inserted the wrong end, and he still breaks into that magnificent laugh that resembles an Atlantic gale hitting a tin roof. Those who haven't savored the Jamieson flavor for 15 years probably would be amazed at the few changes, despite heavy responsibilities now as minister of transport and highly apparent success as a parliamentary politician. Even his appearance is much the same today. When he was 35, the relatively rotound Newfoundlander could easily be taken for someone Warplanes violate ceasefire TEL AVIV (AP) - Four Egyptian warplanes flew over Israeli army emplacements on the Suez canal Monday in violation of the ceasefire, the military command said. Two Soviet-made Sukhoi S-47 fighter-bombers of the Egyptian air force flew over positions in the northern zone of the waterway, while two others crossed in the central sector, a spokesman said. A complaint was lodged with the United Nations ceasefire observation authorities in Jerusalem, he said. Police protecion for MP LONDON (AP) - Hugh Fra-ser, a Conservative member of Parliament, is getting round-the-clock police protection following a kidnap threat, police said today. Police also are guarding his 38-year-old blonde wife, Lady Antonia Fraser, one of the reigning beauties of London society and author of the best sell- of uig biography Mary Queen Scots. Fraser, 52, represents the English Midlands constituency of Stafford and Stone. The kidnap threat was made to Stafford police Jan. 6 by an anonymous telephone caller. The caller threatened to kidnap Fraser and hold him as a hostage for a jailed man. McGovem in presidential race WASHINGTON (Reuter) -Senator George S. McGovern. saying that the first order of business in restoring the United States to greatness is ending the Southeast Asia war, became today the first official entrant in the 1972 presidential race. The South Dakota Democrat, an early critic of the Vietnam war, made his formal announcement of candidacy in a television address and in letters sent to supporters around the country. The Tall, bespectacled senator, 48, made a late-starting and unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination in 1968 after the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. In releasing the text of his television address, the senator's National Citizens for McGovern headquarters also announced that several campaign workers for Kennedy and former Minnesota senator Eugene McCarthy were taking leading roles in his campaign. Park presses on herbicides ban WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - Efforts by the Glacier National Park administration to ban the use of herbicides to mark the boundary with Wat-erton National Park in Canada are continuing to receive administration support. Fred J. Russell, acting secretary of the interior, has written an interior department repre- 100 Copies $3.30 plus tax Instant Print & Copy Div. 1269 Third .Ave. S. letfioric/ge sentative that the department is in unalterable opposition to proposals to use herbicides, and in opposition to the clearing of a boundary vista through the peace park. Last October, then secretary of the interior Walter J. Hickel wrote Sectetary of State William P. Rogers asking that the international boundary commission stop the use of herbicides spread from helicopters to maintain the boundary line. Mail banned OTTAWA (CP) - The post office announced Monday it will not accept any classes of mail addressed to Britain or Northern Ireland until further notice. A threatened strike by British postal workers is the reason for the ban. The strike is set for Wedneday, Jan. 20. Milling facilities adequate OTTAWA (CP) - Canada has adequate milling facilities to process present and future grain exports, Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, told the Commons Monday. In reply to Rod Thomson" (NDP - Battleford-Kindersley) Mr. Lang said he had not heard of any shortage of milling facilities and there is "adequate capacity available." The minister also said that government officials are still discussing possible changes in the cereal grains program with the industry. In reply to Alf Gleave (NDP -Saskatoon-Biggar), the minister said talks at the interna tional conference in Geneva this week on a wheat agreement would dwell on price and supply programs rather than production controls. going on 50, And he's still there. But his political thinking has changed from 1948 to 1971. Away back then, Mr. Jamieson was a stout advocate of Newfoundland's economic union with the United States and an outspoken critic of Confederation. Sitting at his wide mahogany desk, with a huge Canadian flag behind his shoulder, the affable transport minister laughed at the comparison. "This," he said, looking over his spacious office, "would have been the farthest thing from my mind in 1948." Asked whether he is happy in his work, he quoted part of that poem about the little girl: "When she is good she is very, very good and when she is bad she is horrid." The transformation from a radio reporter and later a broadcast executive to the bureaucratic jungle of Ottawa was not easy. COMPLEX DECISIONS "On the radio I used to be able to solve the Middle East crisis with a one-minute commentary. But it's amazing how complex every decision becomes when you have to sit here and weigh every angle. It's darned difficult to wind up with acceptable legislation on things you know are necessary," Officials briefing the minister say they "soon learn to cut out the fluff." "And that," says the minister, "stems from my experience as Talks needed on pay cuts WHITBY, Ont. (CP) - Union and management issued a joint statement Monday at Dunlop Canada Ltd., saying that further discussion was needed concerning a company proposal that employees accept a 10-per-cent pay cut. The statement said the union membership "discussed the question of the reduction in wages ... but they felt that further discussion was still required to determino the best methods of achieving a solution." The statement was issued by Dunlop president Brian E. James; Audrey Donaher, president of Local 743, United Rubber Cork Linoleum and Plastic workers of America, and David MacKinlay, president of the union's Local 494. When Mr. James made the proposal for a wage cut, he said the company might be forced to close tho plant as an alternative.

W. H. MacDonald, Clerk of the Legislative Assembly. Ticket scalper under arrest TORONTO fCP) - Morris Cohen, who claims he is one of Canada's leading ticket, scalpers, lias been arrested outside Mnple Leaf Gardens. Police said Monday C o h e n has been charged with "causing a disturbance by impeding pedestrians." They said lie was arrested after ignoring two warnings. A court appearance has not l>een set.

KLOOPS KILL in JAKARTA i AIM - Monsoon floods which hit the Atjoh region of North .Sumatra curlier this month killed 10 persons, cle-s I r o y e d 5,000 Iwmes and drowned at least 600 farm animals, reports reaching Jakarta said Monday. The official Ankara news agency said nearly 50,000 acres of rice fields and farm lands were inundated and most of the crops destroyed. a newsman. Remember those service club speeches? You could close your ears for the first five minutes while the speaker talked about how glad he was to be there. "I still only retain the important things. Mr. Jamieson's handling of the daily question period has earnedthe most praise. He spares the needle, has wit and appears eager to co-operate. Eldon Woolliams (PC-Calgary North) recently told Prime Minister Trudeau to instruct his other ministers "to follow the example of the minister of transport in answering questions." Former Conservative prime minister John Diefenbaker, whose fame doesn't rest on his bouquets to liberals, has also spoken in complimentary terms about Mr. Jamieson's performance. WORKS TILL MIDNIGHT "Most questions in the Commons are based on press reports," says the minister, "so I can also keep abreast that way, too." He reads seven newspapers a day, and listens to newscasts on a small portable radio. There are intensive briefings with officials. The minister's day seldom ends before midnight. He sits in the Commons one night a week and he devotes another night to a full discussion-usually over dinner-with the head of a government branch or a Crown corporation. Often he returns to his apartment to dig into the newspapers. Mrs. Jamieson and the four children-
