Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Britain all but member of market By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) Britain's great Common Market battle is virtually over. After two million words of de- bate, this crucial challenge to the leadership of Prime Minister Heath slowly is turning into historical accom- plishment. The rumblings of discontent still echo across the country and the legislation itself still must win the. approval of the House of Lords. But it Is widely ac- cepted that the peerage will pose no major problem and Heath's stubborn determination will demonstrate to the Common Market partners that he can meet his deadlines when the rendezvous for entry takes place next Jan. 1. While the country slowly yields to Its determined leader, the heat of the House of Commons debate com- bined with the narrow margin of final 17 votes in a 630-seat that Heath still has a long way to go before he can convince the world that union with Europe is fully acceptable to the British people. Indeed, if he had not applied the guillotine, par- liamentary its British Equivalent- might have prevented Heath from meeting any dead- line, except that of a general election in which the Common Market issue might have contributed to his defeat. STRUGGLE CRUCIAL So crucial was the parliamentary struggle that his own supporters were deliriously elated by the 17-vote margin- on final reading, acclaiming this as more than double the eight-vote margin on second reading five months before. There was evidence that some hard-line anti-Mar- keteers were facing the inevitable, with their struggla weakening before Heath's iron will. Tory member Ger- ald Nabarro was an example. All through the battle he stood up against Heath but when the final vote came he was at home ailing. He said, however, that he has decided to accept the will of the majority. More unyielding and perhaps more embarrassed is the position of Tory Maverick Enoch Powell who has predicted that Britain will never join the Market. While Heath's determination stands as a warning to his enemies at home, il may also be a signal to his future European partners that he will be no push- over once membership is sealed. Some suspicion lingers in Europe, especially in France, about Britain's position when the partnership ol the Six turns into the partnership of the 10. IGNORED OTHERS Heath has pledged he will be a true European. Yet when the crunch came on the parity of the pound, the British government virtually ignored its future partners in freeing sterling and suspending an agree- ment with Europe to maintain a particularly narrow margin. More evidence that Britain can make its weight felt came recently when Britain pushed for higher tar- iffs on imported paper products in a manner which did not square with Common Market policy. Anti-Marketeers persistently argue that Market en- try will mean loss of British sovereignty with British courts forced to abide by Common Market law. There appears to be little doubt that some sovereignty will be lost but in making new laws, the presence of Brit- ish ministers at the conference table may help turn those laws into more of a British design. Campaign on: Connally assails McGovern stand SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (Reuter) President Nixon's election campaign againsl Senator George Mc- Govern is likely lo use the argument that McGovern is a dangerous Isolationist who has undermined Nixon's efforts to negotialc an end to the Vietnam war. This was the impression left by a blistering attack on McGovern by Corner treasury secretaiy John Con- nally nominally a Democrat aflcr a three-hour meeting wilh Nixon jriday. While Nixon remains temporarily out of the polit- ical battle, there seemed no doubt Connally's remarks closely reflected the president's own feelings and fore- shadowed Iho line Nixon willl lake when he personally enters the campaign. Nixon is bcliavccl lo Ice] that McGovem's views are too far to the left for the majority of Americans. Connally's criticism of McGovcrn, made at a news conference by the president at his home here, was the opening shot, by the Republican side of what is expected lo be a liiller, iio-piiiiclies pulled eleclion cam- paign. The mnst serious accusation by Connally was that McGovcm has sabotaged the U.S. government's efforts lo negotiate an end lo the Vietnam war. He said there was no hope of a negotiated settle- ment when the Democratic presidential nominee pled- ged.

Moir report cunnecessary' Lethbridge academics agree The Moir Commission report Is essentially a report of non- recommendations, Dr. Bill Beckel president of the Univer- bsity of Lethbridge said today. Dr. Beckel shares Lethbridge Community College president C.D. Stewart's observation that the report was unnecessary in the first place since, in the words of Dr. Stewart, "I don't know we have a problem." The report dealt with the presence of non Canadians on the academic staff of the post secondary educational institutions in the province and found "the existing machinery appears satisfactory and no change is recommended." "We are pleased to have them (non Canadians) on our staff." Dr. Beckel said. "They are some of the best people we can find to leach at our univer- sities." Dr. Beckel said the commis- sion came into existence be- cause "a few graduate students went to see the education mini- sler and wanted jobs in their specialties.'' Dr. Stewart said he was puz- zled by "commission's reports on commission's reports" but added he was pleased that the Moil1 Commission did not rec- ommend quotas at the post-sec- ondary institutions in Alberta. Dr. Bpckcl noted that many recommendations in the Worth Report originated in foreign lands and "we should welcome foreign ideas and foreign influ- ence." Roth Dr. Beckel and Dr. Ste- wart said nationally should not be the determing faclor in the appointment of academic staff This was one lype o[ reac- tion to the provincial inquiry report, released Friday, which called on universities to give preference to competent Cana- dian professors but added that non-Canadians should not be discouraged. Dr. L. G. Stepheens-Newsham, president of the University of Alberta Academic Staff Asso- ciation, said the report took a moderate approach which "just won't fill the bill." "The fact is. there are lots of Canadian PhDs who just can't get jobs. It's unfortunate but there's bound to be a lot of unpleasantness in future." Dr. Stephens-Newsham said the staff association at the University of Alberta is divided on the subject but his personal view is that universities should require Canadian citizenship before tenure is granted. It was the policy of a number of large United States universities that U.S. citizenship is a prerequi- site to tenure. The report dismisses the sug- gestion that citizensliip be a precondition for tenure but does say that relating inslruc.

Dr. Stephens-Newsham said it is disturbing "that in a large number of faculties new posi- tions are somehow still going to imports from other coun- tries. "The posts are not being ade- quately advertised in tins coun- try in my opinion." The report urges that all po- sitions should be advertised in Canadian publications before being filled. Dr. Stephens-Newsham said, for example, that he knows of a highly-qualified electrical en- gineering graduate from Can- ada' who apparently lost a post at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver because the job was first advertised in the Ameri- can publica'tion, and only afterwards in Canadian journals. He said American department heads will look south of the border when filling vacancies in Canada. Three American de- partment heads were appoint- ed at the University of Alberta last year and one so far this year. Americans already working here must not be made to feel unwelcome but in future a tough provincial government policy governing university re- cruiting practices might be a wise idea, he said. "Oilier countries wouldn't tol- erate the situation. It's a defin- ite problem that won't go away and Canadian PhDs may raise almighty hell."

David William Threinen of 908 llth St. S. appeared in city court today and was remanded in custody with- out plea to 2 p.m. Mon- day. A farmer discovered the girl's body in a ditch alongisde a gravel road north of Park Lake and west of Picture Butts at p.m. Friday. It brought to an end an ex- tensive two and a half week search of territory north of Lethbridge. It started June 27 when the girl's bicycle was found on the Kipp cut-off road about four miles north of the junction of Highway 3 west. AN RCMP search plane from Edmonton had been called into the search Thursday, but re- tired without finding a trace of the girl's whereabouts.

He was remanded without bail af- ter being formally charged with non-capital murder. U.S. to pay damages for pollution OTTAWA (CP> Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis said Friday that a U.S. promise to pay all the costs of damage to Canada from American pollu- tion is "a big step forward." Mr. Davis said in an inter- view that the promise was made when he talked with U.S. officials in Washington Thurs- day. He said the U.S. agreed to pay not only direct costs of pol- lution, such as the cost of hay bales for soaking up oil spills, but indirect costs, such as a re- duction in property values for places near oil-covered beaches. While in Washington, Mr. Davis met Russell Train, chair- man of the council on environ- mental qualily. A communique issued there Friday said the two agreed "good progress'' is being made in developing contingency plans to deal with oil spills in waters near the Canada-U.S. boundary. up. It's time to telkpeecatgain.' Angelas mother I By RUDY HAUGENEDEB Herald Staff Writer "The coyotes are howling la Hardieville tonight. You shud- da been here Is it true body has been found and was all shot up." That's the type of sick crank phone calls that have plagued Mr. and Mrs. Joachim Huemer since their daughter Angela was reported missing June 27. Her body was found near Park Lake Friday evening. And they wouldn't change their phone number because they continuously hoped some- body, "Angela or would call with information. Even when they were visiting friends cranksters call. Mrs. Huemer, however, felt from the onset that she would never see her daughter alivs again. Even before she knew for sure that her daughter was missing, Mrs. Huemer only held a glimmer of hope. At 4 a.m. the morning follow- ing the girl's dissappearance, Mrs. Huemer suddenly woke up hearing her daughter cry out. Angela cried out tliree limes. Following that, Mrs. Huemer had a premonition her daught- er would be found face-down in a ditch. Mrs. Huemer scoured the courntryside on foot between Lethbridge and Picture Butte and Shaunessy. Mr. Hr.cmcr clung to hope the girl would call or be found until the police informed him Angela's body was found by a farmer.
