22 - THB IETHBRIDGC HERAID - Friday, January 79, 1971 <- Benson, TrudeaulGM Profits get the word TORONTO (CP) - Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield suggested Thursday that Finance Minister Edgar Benson should resign and Prime Minister Tru-deau prolong his career as a world traveller if neither are able to do more about unemployment than at present. Referring to Mr. Trudeau's Asian tour which ends Friday, nomination convention that responsibility for the current economic situation "seems to lie lightly on the prime minister's head." He agreed Mr. Tradeau had a duty to attend the 10-day Commonwealth Conference in Singapore, Mr. Stanfield said. "But I do question the timing of his decision to take on the additional role, before, during and after the Commonwealth Conference, of world traveller extraordinary." DIDN'T ASK RETURN On the other hand, he had not joined in a New Democrat demand for Mr. Trudeau's immediate return following publication last week of unemployment statistics for December. "I did not do so because I believe Mr. Trudeau is no more isolated from Canadian realities four or five thousand miles away than he is when he is at home." "If the prime minister had a contribution to make, then by Chrysler strike looms all means he should have come home. If not, he might as well have stayed where he was- which I note he did." The Conservative leader described his speech as the first since his tour this month of centres of high unemployment in Canada. His conclusion, he said, is that "what the Trudeaii government is doing to this country cannot be permitted to continue any longer." "I am neither calling for, nor am I predicting riots in the streets. But I am saying that when a government deliberately follows policy which creates mass unemployment, that government is also helping to create a dangerous social climate." "I am warning this govern ment that it is playing with fire." hit skids DETROIT (AP) - General Motors Corp., hit by a crippling 67-d a y strike which began Sept. 15, lost $135 million in the fourth quarter of last yeair, dropping the giant corporation's earnings to $609 million in 1970 from $1,711 million in 1969. The $609 million profit represented a 64-per-cent decline in earnings from 1968. The fourth-quarter loss was the second consecutive three-month period in which the world's largest industrial firm reported a loss, the first time since 1932 that GM has lost money in consecutive quarters The firm lost $77 million in the third quarter of last year.

Teen-agers go on dry run for liquor violations DETROIT (AP) - The United Auto Workers has authorized a strike against Chrysler Corp. by 10,000 union-represented salaried workers at 10 a.m. Tuesday if no agreement on a new contract is reached before then, UAW Vice-President Douglas Fraser announced Thursday. Chrysler and the UAW recently reached new contract agreement covering 110,000 production and maintenance workers, who are expected to keep Chrysler plants running, at least for the time being, if the walkout develops. The UAW says Chrysler has failed to meet 13-per-cent salary increases granted non-union employees at General Motors and Ford following settlements covering hourly-rated workers in those companies. Ford and GM have no union-represented salaried employees in the United States. There are about 10,000 white-collar UAW members at Chrysler in clerical, technical and en gineering jobs. Almost all are employed at Chrysler's headquarters complex in the Detroit suburb of Highland Park. Beef industry outlook bright CALGARY (CP) - Long-term prospects for North | America's beef industry are good because population | growth and per capita consumption are up, says the director of the Alberta animal in- j dustry branch, of the agriculture department. Bill Mead of Edmonton told a provincial agriculture-industry conference he does not believe North America will be short of beef by 1980, as some agriculturalists have predicted. A shortage of beef would bring on price increases and "this continent is perfectly capable under a favorable price structure to meet the requirement" for beef. Mr. Mead did not present such an optimistic view for hog prices. 'It would seem to be pretty | optimistic to expect much improvement before the first quarter of 1972." He said both Alberta and the United States will have high storage stocks of pork this year. SOVIET TRADE UP MOSCOW (AP) - Soviet for eign trade totalled $23,100 mil lion in 1970, up from $21,800 million in 1969, preliminary figures showed Tuesday. MOOSE JAW, Sask. (CP) - | Two teen-agers will go bar-hopping next week on orders of Judge J. J. Flynn. But it will be a dry run. The legal drinking age in Saskatchewan is 19. Judge Flynn, in magistrate's court Thursday, gave Jocelyn Nauman, 17, and Diane Valness, 18, both of Moose Jaw, an opportunity to evade a fine when they appeared on charges of being minors in a liquor outlet. He said he would impose a one-week suspended sentence on condition they visit every hotel liquor outlet and present the managers with a letter of introduction which also would give their ages. The managers will be required to sign the letter. At the same time, Judge Flynn ordered the girls to deliver to the managers a court-written letter asking them if there was any reason the hotel should not be charged if the girls, or anyone else underage, were found on the premises. The alternative was a $50 fine or 15 days in jail with no time to pay, Judge Flynn said. Later, Judge Flynn said he wanted to know what hotels were being told in such cases because no individual could take either girl for being of age. He said if hotels break the law, he could see no reason why he should impose a penalty on girls who probably could not pay a fine. The girls told the court they had been sitting in the liquor outlet talking but did not have any liquor. 1 man found guilty Strike notice at pulp mill HINTON (CP) - More than 200 employees o f Northwestern Pulp and Power Ltd. have served strike notice effective Wednesday.

Union president Arne Chris-tensen, said the men receive $2.54 an hour compared with $3.30 an hour for inside workers. MONTREAL (CP) - One man was found guilty Thursday on a charge involving the Front de Liberation du Quebec and the trial of another continues today in the kidnap-killing of Pierre Laporte. Come Leblanc, a 22-year-old unemployed laborer, was convicted by a 12-man jury of advocating or promoting the aims of the outlawed FLQ and will be sentenced Feb. 12. Rut Leblanc was acquitted on two other charges: being a member of the FLQ and communicating statements on its behalf. His conviction is punishable by up to five years in prison, a $5,000 fine or both. Meanwhile, Mr. Justice Marcel Nichols of Court of Queen's Bench was to rule today on two motions put forward by Paul FRAME STYLES FROM . . . AROUND-THE-WORLD OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. Rose, accused of the kidnap-murder of Mr. Laporte, Quebec's former labor minister. WANTS CHARGES DROPPED Rose, acting as his own lawyer, asked that charges against him be dropped, arguing that the news media have given his case such widespread publicity that a fair trial is impossible. He also moved that prospective jurors be disqualified on grounds of discrimination. Quebec law excludes women from jury duty and requires that male candidates own property of a certain value or pay a certain amount of rent. "I ask to be judged by my peers," Rose said in support of his motion Thursday, "and my peers are the workers. "I ask that the jury include women, students and the workers of St. Henri"-a reference to a low-rent district of southwestern Montreal. Under present circumstances, he said, he will be judged by the establishment. He accused Mr. Justice Nichols of being "subjective on the side of the establishment" and being "a lackey of the establishment."
