Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdnttday, January 22, 1975 General to pay government for transporting his dog STUTTGART (AP) Gen. Alexander Haig has decided to reimburse the United States government for what it cost to transport his dog, Duncan, from Frankfurt to Stuttgart last October, a spokesman for the U.S. European Command said Tuesday. The spokesman said the former White House chief of staff will pay the cost of the 260-mile round trip by two soldiers to pick up the dog, the spokesman said. Use of a staff car to transport Duncan was disclosed in Washington by Representative Les Aspin (Dem. Wis.) who said it was illegal and demanded that the army collect the costs from Haig. The soldier who drove to Frankfurt airport to pick up Duncan and bring him back to Stuttgart said Tues- day he did it "under protest." "I figured with the gas shortage and our regulations, a special run for a dog was totally said Pte. Marty Lopez, 19, of San Jose, Calif. The incident occurred when Haig came from Washington to West Germany to become supreme commander of allied forces in Europe and chief of the U.S. European command in Stuttgart. The spokesman said Haig had the dog flown from the United States on a commercial plane at his own ex- pense and arrived himself a few hours later without knowing the dog had gone on ahead to Stuttgart. Instead, the statement said, an officer handling Haig's arrival arrangements ordered the staff car on his own initiative when he received a telephone call from Frankfurt that the dog had arrived. False rumors circulated sugar price trial told Close call Houses lie perilously close to a crater at Asbestoes, Que., Tuesday, formed when the rim of an open Asbestoes mine collapsed 90 miles east of Montreal. MONTREAL (CP) A for- mer sugar broker testified Tuesday he occasionally circulated false rumors Begin your year at our End concerning newly-arrived shipments of sugar with the hope of finding out details on the shipment. Douglas Seal, formerly em- ployed by Hodgson Sugar Ltd., was testifying at the trial of three eastern Canadian sugar refineries charged with con- spiring to fix prices and lessen competition. The role of a broker, he said, is to disseminate and gather information in order to remain on top of the market. Mr. Seal, now in charge of purchasing raw sugar for St. Lawrence Sugar Ltd., one of the companies charged, said when a ship arrived in Montreal port and he did not know details of the shipment, such as the price paid, he sometimes circulated false rumors which eventually got back to him. Then, by telephoning various people involved in the sugar industry to question them on the circulating rumor, he eventually ascer- tained details of the shipment he wanted to know. Mr. Seal said it was contin- uously necessary for sugar brokers to talk with the refiners, such as St. Lawrence, Atlantic Refineries Co. Ltd. and Red- path Industries Ltd., the three companies charged, to tell them "the gossip of the street." However, he said, he talked to the refiners in- dividually and not collec- tively. Mr. Seal said another way to obtain information on "mystery" shipments of sugar was by gleaning infor- mation from stevedores or other dock personnel. Student summer work plan to steer away from job creation OTTAWA (CP) The federal government's summer work plans for students will continue to steer away from direct job creation in 1975, a joint release from 12 departments showed Tuesday. This year's summer student program has a budget of 567.1 million but will be used to create only jobs directly, compared with last year. In 1974, the budget totalled million. Manpower Minister Robert Andras, who said last year that the government was lean- ing more heavily on the private sector for student jobs, said Tuesday the government's program was to "augment the effort the private sector puts into providing meaningful employ- ment." The government already has announced that Oppor- tunities for Youth (OFY) will account for million of the 1975 million less than the program cost in 1974. This year the controversial OFY program is expected to create jobs, more than half the total provided through direct government employment. In 1974, OFY was set up to create jobs. Another million of federal funds will be channell- ed into about 300 student man- power centres, which are ex- pected to find about jobs and give 914 positions to counsellors. The goal of is sub- stantially less than the target of in the 1974 program. The second-largest'compo- nent of the direct job creation will be hiring of students through the Public Service Commission. About million will be spent to provide jobs in the gov- ernment service to students. Last year only students were hired, but when the program was announced in January, 1974, the commis- sion had a target of Despite .the shortfall in the number of students hired, the total allocation of million was spent. Mr. Andras said in a news release that about 1.4 million students are expected to seek summer work this year. Usually the private sector provides 85 per cent of jobs. Other components of the summer job program, by departments, will be as follows: National 185 students will be given eight weeks of reserve train- ing and another 300 will work on community assistance pro- jects designed to improve the environment, to repair park facilities and to construct nature trails. An additional 350 cadets will be able to at- tend summer camps. Total cost is million; Secretary of millioiUo provide jobs to students with voluntary organizations and to help pay for hostel and travel services; new program designed to provide 550 poten- tial high school dropouts with a variety of job experiences will cost The 12 pro- jects planned will be co- ordinated by selected chambers of comerce; Health and Welfare About will pro- Vide 389 jobs designed to help deal with a variety of drug and alcohol-related problems; Consumer educational puppet show for small children in parks and playgrounds will create 20 jobs at a cost of Indian and Northern Af- About million will be used to create jobs to staff parks facilities and in- formation offices and in a national student job pro- gram which will include 000 Indian high school students working on projects identified by band councils; will pay for a 24-mah tourist survey in 12 airports; 000 is to be spent to pay for work of 44 students who will conduct special studies and participate in activities within the department; and de- velopment work in the customs and excise branch will provide 42 jobs at a cost of Energy, Mines and Resources Projects related to the science and ad- ministration of energy and resource management and evaluation will create 43 jobs at a cost of Solicitor General About 60 students will be hired as support staff in planning and running the Fifth United Nations congress on crime prevention and treatment of offenders which is to be held in Toronto in September. Cost will be Brezhnev quoted in article MOSCOW (Reuter) The Communist party newspaper Pravda hailed collective lead- ership Tuesday as the party's great strength, and quoted party secretary Leonid Brezh- nev to prove it. In an article timed for the 51st anniversary of the death of .Lenin, the paper said collectivity in decision- making is a guarantee "against subjective decisions." The article, by Pyotr Rodio- nov, deputyKlirector of the party Central Committee's In- stitute of Marxism-Leninism, was seen by observers as a re- assertion that the Soviet lead- ership is a genuinely collec- tive one. But it was also believed aimed at party officials who abuse their position by refus- ing to accept criticism and by violating "the norms of socialist democracy."
