Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedrmdoy, January H, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGt HERALD 31 Vietnam overshadowed Johnson's relations with Canada By ARCH MacKENZIE OTTAWA Vietnam overshadowed Ljudon John- son's relations with that stubborn undeclared war colored so much of his presiden- tial there also were some concrete bilateral meas- ures achieved ioo. Typically, the Johnion years from November, 1963. through 1968 touched wilh human gestures that characterized the big zestful Texan. Mr. Johnson as a Texan was probably less familiar with Can-1 ada than most of his predeces-! sors. immediate at least. He knew far more about Mex- ico. He never did pay anything like a state visit to Canada and, again typically, crammed a lot of work" into the one flying visit he made to Ottawa in 1967 when he also plainly didn't grea'. domed U.S. exhibit! at Expo 67 in Mon- treal. Mr. Johnson and Lester B. Pearson, who predeceased him Dec. 27, were harness mates throughout the Johnson era. SIGNED AGREEMENT They signed the patched-up Columbia River power and flood control agreement in 1954 in a ceremony at the British Co- lumbia-Washington border dur- ing Mr. Johnson's election cam- paign. There still is controversy about how good a deal that agreement has been for Can- ada. In 1965 on a raw day al the Johnson ranch on the Peder- nales River, Mr. Pearson and Paul Martin, then external af- fairs spent the night and signed an agreement that the U.S. has come to rue, in its present form at least. That was the Canada-U.S. auio production agreement, reversed a traditional Ca- nadian deficit in the rich au- tomotive trade and has sub- sequently piled up a surplus. Changes are destined in that pact when Canada-U.S. trade Ulks are resumed. CALLED HIM HAROLD The president gree'.ed Vr. Pearson that day as "Harold." apparently confusing him mo- mentarily with Harold Wilson, then British prime minister, whom he had just seen in Wash- ington. Thereafter he called Mr. Pearson "Lester1 rather than the more familiar "Mike." He drove the visiting Canadians around in his golf can. took them out to see his deer and had them put their signatures in special cement reclions be- side his ranch house. Later, the pen used in the signing was mounted in a White House display along wilh others used on major legislation. Shortly after, in May, 1955. he was furious when Mr. Pearson in a speech at Temple Univer- sity at Philadelphia suggested in a speech (hat Mr. Johnson 1 halt the bombing of North Viet- nam lo encourage peace possi- bilities. It was never clear just what angered Mr. pro- posal itself made in his own country' or the fact that he had his own plans for such a step, which he carried out shortlv after. In Buy event, when Mr. Pear- son called on him the next day for lunch at the presidential re- treat of Camp David in Mary- land, he was greeted with a col- orful demonstration of the John- sonian eloquence In all its pung- ent flow, weU laced with four- letter words. Bu; Canada continued to piay some roe that di- minished as the positions hard- taking peace sound- ings. One such enterprise was the dispatch to Hanoi of Chester Ronning, the retired diplomat and Southeast Asian expert. But American forces continued to accumulate in South Vietnam to more than 3W 000 men- Why More People Every Week Are Shopping 2025 Mayor Mag rath Drive "College Mall" 324 Mayor Magrath Drive t 420-6th Street South "Downtown" Smoked Pork rl JllO Side Canada Packers Ranch Style Ib. 59 Swift's Eversweel Sliced, Rindlesi 1 Ib. cov. pkg.
