Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta r 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 6, 1973 PM North bombing TORONTO (CP) Former prime minister Lester Pearson, quoted in the Pentagon papers as assuring U.S. President Lyn- don Johnson that he would not condemn non-nuclear bombing of North Vietnam, suggested a year later that the U.S. dis- continue the attacks. The Pentagon papers, first re- leased to the press in 1971 by former U.S. defence consultant Daniel Ellsberg and amplified early this year during Ells- berg's trial in Los Angeles, re- ported meeting between Mr. Pearson and President Johnson in May 1964. During the meeting in New York, the late Canadian prime minister was quoted in the se- cret Pentagon history of the In- dochina war as telling Presi- dent Johnson that "punitive striking of discriminated tar- gets by careful iron-bomb at- tacks" would be "personally un- derstood." However, Mr. Pearson, in a carefully-qualified speech at Temple University, Phila- delphia, a year after the meet- Juneau wants children's TV ads monitored OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- 6km (CRTC) will direct its full influence on broadcasters so the new Broadcast Code for Adver- tising to Children has virtually the strength of a CRTC regu- lation, chairman Pierre Juneau said Thursday night. The code is a voluntary set of ethics drawn up by the Cana- dian Association of Broad- casters to take effect Sept. 1. Mr. Juneau told the Commons broadcasting conunittea, which is studying a proposal to ban advertising directed at children, he favors the code which calls for pre-screening of com- mercials by a committee of C. A. B. members and non-mem- bers. The CRTC, he said would check enforcement regularly and could exert pressure when licences were submitted for re- newal. "There is little doubt that television advertising has been used to influence children in a manner that is totally unaccep- he said. In a prepared statement he described as a rapid expression of views, Mr. Juneau said steps the commision would take to help the committee find solu- tions to advertising problems would include: definition of children's pro- gramming. of children's viewing both in program and commercial content. for greater limi- tation of commercial minutes an hour in children's pro- gramming. Mr. Juneau said this wpuldd probably require legislation. that advertis- ing not be directed to the child, but rather to the parent. -Continuation of a policy pro- posal concerning the deletion of advertising from stations car- ried on cable systems in the children's programming cate- gory. .WANTS TALKS The commission, he said, would initiate discussions with the advertisers and broad- casters to find money to in- crease production of children's programs. "Production of children's pro- gramming demands more, not less skill and talent than pro- gramming for adults. If broad- casters do not recognize this and it becomes evident in the planning, funds, imagination and staff being devoted to this production, the commission may consider policies which will place special demands on programming in the children's category." Jim Fleming West) asked Mr. Juneau if he saw any benefit for children by forcing them to make decisions. "I would have a great hestita- tion to support this Mr. Juneau said. Mr. Juneau told James McGrath (PC-St. John's East) that banning ads directed at children is not a commission objective. He said he felt other areas of the industry required more urgent attention. He did not elaborate. Paper claims morale poor at prison EDMONTON (CP) The Journal says there is serious overcrowding and poor morale among prisoners and staff at the federal maximum-security penitentiary in Prince Albert. In a dispatch from Prince Al- bert Ths Journal quotes an au- thoritative source in the peni- tentiary as saying: "There is going to be trouble. We've al- ready had the signs." The newspaper also says it has learned that: Regular classroom and shop instructors are being used as guards to man both prison turret guard sationa and in- Despite overcrowding which has increased the prison population from just over the capacity of 400 prisoners to 528, the prison is 15 short of the staff quota of 269. Two shops and several buildings not used for many years have been pressed into service as dormitories, delay- ing the construction of a 16-bed prison hospital which should have been under construction months ago; A move to establish a pro- release house on prison grounds but outside the actual penitentiary walls may suffer serious setbacks because the house had to be loaded in an- tiquated quarters once sched- uled for demolition.

"I think that after two months of air strikes, the mes- sage has been received loud and Mr. Pearson said. "Continued bombing could harden the determination of the North Vietnamese." The Pentagon papers also re- vealed secret Canadian diplo- macy in third-party negotiations with Hanoi, prompted by Mr. Pearson's 1964 meeting with President Johnson. This meeting, which came nine months before the U.S. started bombing North 'Viet- nam, took place only three weeks bsfore Blair Seaborn, Canada's delegate on the Inter- national Control Commission made his first visit to Hanoi. The Pentagon papers re- vealed how Ottawa sub- sequently became a diplomatic instrument, through Mr. Sea- born, of President Johnson's Vietnam policy. During the Pearson-Johnson meeting, the president sug- gested to Mr. Pearson that Mr. Seaborn should carry U.S. dip- lomatic messages to Hanoi. A cable sent to Henry Cabot Lodge, then U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam, from acting State Secretary George Ball in May 30, 1964, two days after the meeting, read that President Johnson "needs a confidential and responsible interlocutor to carry the message of U.S. atti- tudes to Hanoi." The cable continued: "Pearson, after expressing willingness to lend Canadian good offices to this endeavor stipulated that he would have great reservations about the use of nuclear weapons. He said he would person- ally understand our resort to such measures if the messages transmitted through the Cana- dian channel failed to produce any aUsviation of North Viet- namese aggression. Oil being pumped from crippled tanker TOOK PISTOLES, Que. (CP) Pumping operations were go- ing ahead today to remove a cargo of crude oil from the grounded tanker St. Spyridon here. Three other tankers, five tug- boats and a number of small craft were being used in the op- eration which began Thursday night. The Liberian tanker and the grain carrier Florence collided off Les Escoumins during heavy fog Wednesday, and the tanker was later towed 12 miles to this St. Lawrence community, 180 miles northeast of Quebec City. The icebreaker Montcalm, with staff from the federal envi- ronment department aboard, was standing by to move in with anti-pollution equipment if a spill occurred. RIPPED OPEN The St. Spyridon's aft engine room was ripped open and she reached here with her stern drawing 60 feet of water instead of the normal 25 feet. The collision resulted in a mi- nor spill of bunker oil from a 200-ton-capacity forward hold. The main hold, containing 800 long tons of bunker C, was undamaged. The accident touched off questions in the Commons about the fate of plans for super- tanker ports on the St. Law- rence River. Replying to a question in the House Thursday, Jack Davis, environment minister, said en- vironmental considerations will rate with economic considera- tions in deciding whether the St. Lawrence ports -will be built. Salvage crews working on the St. Spyridon had trouble Thurs- day in hooking up pipes to pump the oil to the waiting tankers. Heating equipment, which keeps the bunker oil at 140 de- grees for pumping, was out of QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EPDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

HOLD ON STATION The tugs and small craft were being used to hold the tanker in position against a stiff current. Salvage workers planned to empty the mid-section tanks first, then check the stability of the vessel before continuing the operation. The bow of the second ship, the Florence, was smashed in the collision. A spokesman for her agents, Kerr Steamships, said Thursday she is being held at the collision scene awaiting a tug with pumps to remove oil from her bow section. When the oil is removed, the Florence ship will be towed to Quebec City for repairs. ISLAND INDIANS Jamaica was inhabited by the Arawak Indians when opher Columbus discovered the In 1494.
