Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta tanMrr If 71 TM UIHMUDOI MUID Canada may provide world with example in anti-smoking drive LONDON (CP) Britain's doctors, playing a leading rale In the country's anti-smoking campaign, figure tint Canada may provide the world with a special example of what de- termination can accomplish. And yet then is a feeling among some. of them mat even me Canadian policy, which Is being watched ckMely, may not strike at the root of the en- courage future generations to turn their backs on cigarettes. "I believe that Canada is well ahead of any other coun- try, at least in government- proposed says Lord Rosenhelm, president of the Royal College of Physi- cians, which established an anti-tobacco organization known as ASH, Action on Smoking and Health. Rosenheim, who feels that Brifeh action Is so far inade- quate, was referring to the proposed complete Canadian ban on all cigarette advertis- ing at contained in legislation introduced in me Commons at Ottawa. BAN HEALTHY STEP This, be feels, would be a healthy step forward, far su- perkr to the Brttlafa govern- ment action which, in addition to the imposition of a health warning on all cigarette pack- ets, organized some anti- smoking commercials on tele- vision. These commercials have been switched from TV to movie bouses. Touching on the cigarette- box warning, Rosenheim said In an interview: "I doubt whether this Is going to atop people smoking 30 cigarettes a Dr. John Dunwoody, direc- tor-general of ASH, agrees though he la convinced that me over-all campaign, while still inadequate, is gradually producing some results. Over-all cigarette consump- tion has declined slightly, he aays. The average British male smokes about 130 cigarettes a week-that is, among those who haven't kicked the smok- ing what worries (he campaigners is the British tendency to bum the cigarette down to an extremely short butt. "The shorter the butt the more dangerous is the ciga- rette ia Dunwoody says in referring to those who inhale. "All this would be says Dunwoody, "but I feel that more must be done.

Malta talks end ROME (Reuter) Talks be- tween Britain and Malta on the future of British bases on the Mediterranean island ended suddenly today when Prime Minister Dora Mintoff of Malta decided to return home to con- sult his colleagues. At tine end of Z% hours of talks today, Defence Secretary Lord Carriogton of Britain said: "A certain amount of progress has been made." He said the NATO position has been explained to Mintoff who wished now to return to Valletta to consult with his col- leagues. Mintoff has demanded W7 million annual rent for the bases and an immediate down- payment of million. The combined British-NATO offer has reached million so far, of which Britain would provide million. However, a report from Ot- tawa Friday disclosed that Can- ada and about five other NATO countries were combining to offer aid worth about million in addition to rent pay- ments. The names of the other countries were not disclosed. Informed sources said Canada would contribute a in- terest-free Joan which would be t of the economic develop- ment program.

Chinese reject plan PEKING (Reuter) China told President Nixon today the only way out in the Indochina war is to accept the Viet Cong's proposals for ending hostilities This would mean an immedi- ate and complete United States withdrawal and an end to U.S. support of Saigon and other "puppet a commen- tary published by the official New China news agency said. This first, unfavorable Chinese response came almost four days' after Nixon an- nounced his eight-point plan in Washington and less than a month before the president's scheduled visit to Peking: Chinese news media until now had been carrying only North Vietnamese and other hostile reactions to the Nixon plan. Diplomats here viewed the Chinese attack as a passible in- dication that Hanoi has decided to reject the plan. Nixon's plan, announced last Tuesday night, offers total U.S withdrawal within six months ol an agreement and new presi- dential elections in South Viet- nam. It also calls for a cease- fire throughout Indochina and the freeing of U.S. servicemen held prisoner by Hanoi and the Viet Cong. The agency eonunenUry called the plan "a clumsy trick of the U.S. government to 'de- ceive the people and cover up its aggressive ambitions." The Chinese people are deter- mined to support the Vietnam- ese people "to the it said.

"Now, this is out of all pro- portion and something ought to be he says, indicat- ing that more pressure will be brought on the government to increase anti-smoking funds. The council Indicates it is the lack of funds that has forced a halt in TV aoti-tmofc- ing commercials. Medical concern over smok- ing is probably more acute in this country than in many oth- ers principally because of the high incidence of lung cancer. Rosenheim estimates the an- nual death toll of time be- tween toe ages of 35 and M far more than thoss killed in road accidents. White House dinner guests shocked by singer's action WASHINGTON (AP) A White House dinner honoring the founders of the Reader's Digest WAS interrupted when a member of Ray Comiffs sing- ers unrolled a protest sign be- fore invited guests and chas- tised President Nixon for the United States bombing of North Vietnam, "President Nixon, stop bomb- ing human beings, animals and the young singer said as she displayed a sign that read: "Stop the Killing." More than 100 surprised guests at the dinner Friday for Ula and Dewrtt Wal- lace, co-founders of Reader's Digest, were silent as the woman continued: "You go to church on Sunday and pray to Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ were in this room tonight, you would not dare drop another bomb." The woman identified herself as Carol Feraci, 30, a profes- sional thtiugh not a reg- ular with from Los An geles. She told reporters she was a Canadian, born in Toronto, who had lived in the United States for 10 years. Conniff, who said later he was as stunned as anyone at the demonstration, launched his group Into their first song be- fore anyone reacted to the young woman's comments. But, when it ended, a Nixon friend, John Mulcahy of Bronx ville, N.Y., snouted, "Throw her Conniff toM the srngtr that it might be a good idea and she left. Outside, Miss Feraci said she was not a member of any anti war organization, but planna feelings. plea because of personal Bottomless dancing taboo at Vancouver nightclubs VANCCWER (CP) Bot- tomless dancing is out at six Vancouver nightclubs and fe- male performers will return to wearing G-strings.

African resolution urges withdrawal ADDIS ABABA (Router) African members of the United Nations Security Council com- pleted a draft resolution today which would have the council call on Britain to withdraw an opuuon-sampting commission from Rhodesia. They hope to present it Monday. the draft resolution, which ia subject to a British veto, would have the council demand Brit- ain "to withdraw immediately the Pearce Commission from the territory of Southern Rhode- sia." The commission under Lord Pearce is in Rhodesia to find out if a recent Anglo-Rnodesian agreement, leading to eventual recognition of Rhodesian inde- pendence, is acceptable to all Rhodesians including the black majority. The African Security Council members did not formally sub- mit the proposal pending talks witti other council members In- cluding Britain. British sources Indicated that a direct call on Britain to with- draw the commission would vetoed in the Security Council. Thedraftresolutio nalso would have the council condemn "brutality and repression against the African people of Southern Rhodesia by the illegal regime" and call on Britain to safeguard African rights. Britain vetoed a proposal last month to reject the Rhodesian settlement, and there have been strong indications that the Brit- ish government will not back down now that the council is meeting in Africa.
