Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THI UTHBRIDGI HERALD July 4, 1973 Europe troop cut talks date set I As foreign ministers con- -fer at the history-making "Helsinki security confer- -ence, doubts are being cast old-style diplomacy Jean work in an age of big- 5 power summitry. By SIDNEY WEILAND -VIENNA (Reuter) NATO and the Warsaw pact have eluded five of face-to- face diplomacy with both sides slightly scarred by the ex- perience. -The result is an agreement to sjart negotiations of troop cuts in Central Europe Oct. (3 the confidence-building proc- ess now under way between East and West. decision left diplomats IThe from smaller countries Three weeks earlier, Bel- over the role played by the su- per-powers. It raised doubts also over the effectiveness of old-style diplo- macy in an age of big-decision summitry. Although officls from 19 countries held dozens of private meetings in Vienna, the last hurdles were overcome only when President Nixon and So- viet leader Leonid Brezhnev met in Washington. It was left to the Vienna ne- gotiators to ratify the details at a half-hour meeting, enlivened by a protest from Romania that the agreement did not take proper account of small-country interests. gium's chief delegate stayed away from NATO meeting be- cause of secret U.S.-Russian ne- gotiations and the Belgian gov- ernment warned against "back- room deals" between the super- powers. The coming troop-reduction talks, confined initially to Cen- tral Europe, are based on a cautious accord which follows important concessions by NATO in face of a tough bargaining position adopted by the Commu- nist states. Preparatory talks started Jan. 31 but quickly bogged down in procedural wrangl'ng. The first 14 weeks were spent arguing about the status of Hungary, where an estimated Soviet troops are sta- tioned. NATO demanded Hungary's full participation in negotiations while Russia insisted on keep- ing the Hungarians on the side- lines as observers. First strains developed within the NATO group when the U.S. indicated readiness to bow to the Soviet position. Privately, some West Eu- ropean diplomats felt U.S. ne- gotiators were softening be- cause the Nixon administration wanted quick results to head off congressional pressure for a unilateral cut in the member American force in Eu- rope. American diplomats In turn hinted that the British, Dutch and Belgians were "too bard- line." NATO eventually yielded on the Hungarian issue, accepting Hungary as an observer and implicitly excluding the country from the projected Central Eu- ropean troop-reduction zone. Hungary has said it will accept full status only if Italy, a NATO observer country is also up- graded. In further concessions, the West abandoned insistence on a point-by-point agenda in favor of more general guidelines sought by Russia, and NATO dropped demands for specific references to "balanced" troop cuts despite a 2-to-l Communist manpower advantage in land forces.

(CP Wirephoto) NORTHERN HEALTH Allmand may reintroduce death penalty amendments OTTAWA (CP) Although Solicitor-General Warren Al- lmand still wants Parliament to vote on total abolition of capital punishment, he is unlikely to get the opportunity in the near future. After his controversial would have provided for total aboli- ruled out of order earlier this week in the Com- mons' justice committee, the minister said he might try to reintroduce them when the bill returns to the House. His effort would almost cer- tainly fail.

The signing in Georgetown, Trinidad will mark a high point in regional unity delayed for years by the same inter-territo- rial suspicions, bickerings and nationalisms which wrecked the ill-fated West Indies Federation in 1962 after four years. It has taken Caribbean lead- ers .more than a decade to make another positive step to Polio appears under control In Canada OTTAWA (CP) Based on statistics, polio in Canada eems under control. Dr. John W. Davies. chief of the federal icalth department epidemiology ervice, said today. "The provincial health de- partments realize that immuni- atipn programs have to be maintained and are making grtat efforts to ensure that ali children are getting polio vac- cine." he said. "However, the polio immuni- zation programs are provincial responsibilities and I can't say for sure how tihey are going." Statistical results show that there are oify sporadic cases of one and four cases a with 909 cases in before the msss immunization programs he said. U.S. health authorises Monday in Atlanta, Ga., that immunization against poiio has sagged because most parents don't remember how serious the disease was a few years ago.

TO SHOW UNITY In signing the treaty, Michae Manley of Jamaica, Forbes Burnham of Guyana, Enrol Bar- row of Barbados and Eric Wil- lams of Trinidad and Tobago hope to show the world that the Caribbean is emerging as a small but significant power bloc. The new Caribbean commu- nity and common market be- comes operational Aug. 1. Bui the leaders have decided to hold their ceremonial signing Julv 4-the birthday of the late Jamaican prime minister Nor- man Manley, father of the cur- rent prime minister, as a trib- ute to his dedication to the ideal of regional integration. The British colony of Mon- tserrat and the associate state of Antigua have refused to sign the Georgetown accord setting out a timetable for joining the common market and commu- nity.

"And sources say their opposition to the amendments, on these procedural grounds, was much stronger than reflected -in Mr. Jerome's comments. ACCEPTANCE DOUBTFUL Procedural experts think that Speaker Lucien Lamoureux would give the amendments short shrift if they came before him in the House. The amendments angered many MPs, including Liberals, beca'use they felt the minister was tampering with the prin- ciple of a bill that had already attracted 130 speeches in the House and was passed, in a free-vote, by a margin of 138- 114. The bill would abolish capi- tal punishment except for murderers of police and prison a further five-year trial period. Mr. Allmand said his amend- ments merely responded to what he and his officials heard during the 130-speech debate. "It seemed to be said, "there was a large opinion for abolition, coupled with longer jail sentences." He said he had the full sup- port of cabinet. But another cabinet source said this should not be construed as full support for churning full speed ahead on the present course and dam- ning the torpedoes. "It was full support for trying it out on the said a source. The cabinet also understood that Mr. Allmand was dis- cussing the matter thoroughly with caucus. He did invite all 103 Liberal MPs, along with Senators, to discuss it at a spe- cial caucus, but only 25 turned up. And sources say there was heavy oDDOsition amons the 25. DISLIKED APPROACH Even some MPs who favor the total abolition of capital punishment disa-rea with the way air. Allmand handled the situation. "After all these speeches, and a relatively close vote, on a five-year trial period, you just don't him around and change the said one Liberal.
