Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta CLOiror HIGH FORECAST THURSDAY 65 The LetHbruitje Herald VOL.LXV 185 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 19, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS THREE SECTIONS- 36 PAGES Canada takes Public response to Worth Report almost nil-Hyndman new approach to oil spills By JOHN BEST OTTAWA has adopted a new, move pragmatic approach to dealing with the United Stales on potential Pacific coast oil spills, authoritative sources said Tuesday. At the same time they denied a suggestion that Canada now lias accepted the inevitability ot a pro- posed West Coast tanker route from Alaska to Puget Sound, against which this country has raised strong objections in Washington. The question arose following a meeting in Washing- ton last week between Environment Minister Jack Davis and the chairman of the U.S. council on environmen- tal quality, Russell Train. A communique said it was noted at the meeting that "good progress" was being made in developing joint contingency plans to deal with spills of oil or other noxious substances in water boundary areas. Agreement reached Agreement had been reached on a joint plan for the Great Lakes, and a proposed plan for the Atlantic coast had been drafted. Officials of the two countries were to meet in Victoria this week to complete a draft plan for the Pacific coast. This appeared to contradict the stand taken by Canada in a diplomatic note to the U.S. government less than a year ago, replying to an earlier American note suggesting the possibility of joint contingency plans to deal with West Coast oil spills. "Since there is a difference of view between the Canadian and United Slates governments as to ths nature and magnitude ot oil tanker movements that should be permitted in the future in the inner waters on the West Coast, there does not exist at this lima any agreed and workable basis for the establishment of a joint contingency plan in that said the Cana- dian' note. Observers here haven't detected any sign that the "difference of view" referred to in the Aug. 10, 1971, message has been resolved. At least officially, the Canadian government re- mains opposed to the shipment ol Alaskan oil through the Strait Juan de Fuca to a refinery at Cherry Point, Wash. More emphasis Officials said the fact Canada is willing to talk about joint cleanup arrangements does not mean that it now accepts the proposed tanker route as a virtual [ait accompli, even though the U.S. government has approved in principle a pipeline plan for moving the Alaskan oil to tidewater. Nevertheless, they conceded that it represents a twitch in position, brought about by a recognition that dangers already exist which cal] for preparation of emergency bilateral plans. The spill at Cherry Point several weeks ago, which resulted in pollution of Canadian beaches, is said to have brought home to Canadian authorities that the Puget Sound area already is heavily frequented by tankers, even without tankers from Alaska. Authorities here placed more emphasis on two cither aspects of the Dans-Train communique than on the contingency planning aspect. One was U.S. accept- ance of tile principle of "prompt and proper" compen- sation for damage of an environmental nature done to one state by the activities of another in coastal areas. This was described as a "fantastic concession" by the American side. The other was agreement on a bilateral approach to problems o[ coastal trans-boundary pollution. When President Nixon visited here in. April, Prune Minister Trudeau unsuccessfully sought his concurrence in the idea o! extending the jurisdiction ot the Internationa! Joint Commission, concerned mainly with inland waters, to include coastal waters.

One of the major themes o[ the report concerns the con- cept of lifelong education, but there has been almost no re- action, he said. Other areas of slight re- sponse included proposals for an integrated provincial de- velopment plan, reduction in the length of some degree pro- grams and provision of .learn- ing opportunities for "dis- advantaged" three and four- year olds. Mr. Hyndman said Ihe cabi- net committee on education has received a considerable volume of response concern- ing abolition of Grade 12 ex- ams, modification of the school year, universal education for five-year olds and the theme of the industrial versus the person-centred society. He said Catholic school trus- tees have been quick lo re- spond to the report's sugges- tion that public and scparale schools share central office ad- ministration, but m a i n tain their autonomy. "It is an encouraging start, but we need more feedback- more participation from every- he said. "When we begin action it will be on the basis of the response we have received." He said he has placed a study of Alberta children with learning problems high on his department's list of priorities. Mr. Hyndman said the gov- ernment plans to Inventory children in Ihe province wilh learning problems. The testing program would eventually be broadened lo include examina- tion of pre-school children by specialists to discover those needing special education. The government has in- creased its grants to provin- cial school boards by mil- lion this year lo expand Ihe number of special educalion school rooms by several hun- dred. The grant was intended as an incentive to municipal school boards. To reduce the loan on special education teachers and reduce the student-teacher ratio, a pro- gram using parent volunteers who have taken special courses is being studied. Mr. Hyndman said the gov- ernment also is studying Ihe possibility of funding a region- al special school system to serve children requiring spe- ial educalion. A two year pilot project has begun In the Peace River and Red Deer areas, using a central school. The use of mobile classrooms could form part of that pro- gram, "Such a school might be lo- cated in Edmonlon but would exclude Edmonton children whose problems are being met by the city he said.

By BAHGAT BADIE CAIRO (Reuter) The bulk of .thousands of Russian military advisers and experts was ex- pected to be out of Egypt by Sunday after President Anwar Sadat's dramatic call Tuesday night for an end to the huge Soviet military presence in his country. The president said some of the Russians already had left and that his forces now are in control of Soviet military posi- tions and equipment. While Sadat ordered thou- sands of Russian military per- sonnel out of Egypt, one Cairo newspaper said that some Rus- sians will remain as instructors for the Egyptian armed forces. The authoritative newspaper Al Ahram said Soviet military New bylaw would limit burning time Burning of refuse would only be allowed in the city on Thurs- days from dawn to dusk under a proposal announced Monday by Aid. Bill Kergan. Aid. Kergan served notice in city council Monday he will bring a bylaw before council banning the burning of garbage every day except Thursday. Currently, Lethbridge resi- dents can bum every day ex- cept Monday.

The North Vietnamese delega- tion lo the Paris peace talks also announced the meeting bo- tween Kissinger and the Hanoi officials. It gave no details.

President Sadat has not set a deadline for the departure ot the estimaled miblary ex- perts and advisers involved, but some, dressed in civilian clothes, were quietly leaving in small groups. MANY WILL STAY The Associated Press said Sadat's order does not apply lo the to Soviet civil- ian advisers assisting in engi- neering and other fields and in the construction of industrial plants and new dams along the Nile. Despite Ihe lack of a deadline, most were expected to have completed their exodus by next Sunday's celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the rev- olution which ousted the mon- archy. President Sadat complained in a statement Tuesday before the central committee of the Arab Socialist Union, Egypt's only political organization, that the Russians failed to supply arms agreed upon at the dates set for delivery and said he re- jected any restrictions placed on the use of these arms. "We refuse '.o be restricted on Ihe use of arms, whalever their kind. Any political decision must be made in Egypt without having to take permission from any quarter. He said he told the Russians "frankly of our rejection" to three things: "First, our rejection to the limitation of the arms at this stage because this serves Israel which has piles of weapons and which is continuing the occupa- tion of our territory. "Second, our rejection to any agreement on the continuation of the state of no war and no peace because this means that Israel would be gaining in the long run. "Third, non-concession (in any agreement) of any Arab leni lories." WHAT NOW? Many observers and foreign diplomats were wondering where Ihe latest Egyptian move left the country. Some optimistic observers thought lhat relations with the United States, shatlercd during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, might improve, thus encourag- ing Washington to use its influ- ence wilh Israel lo achieve an Israeli withdrawal from occu- pied Arab lands. But for the Soviet Union It was clearly the biggesl-ever set- back in the Middle East. President Sadat called for a new meeting wilh the Russians to decide on how (he relation- ship between the Iwo countries should develop from now on. Tlie decision lo terminate the huge military presence is be- lieved lo have followed an ulti- matum delivered last Thursday to Moscow by Prime Minister Aziz Sidky in which he is re- ported lo have said lhal Moscow should eilhcr give Egypl the arms it deems necessary for its confrontation wilh Israel or pull out iLi experts.

Trade talks to resume next week OTTAWA (CP) Canada and the U.S. will begin preliminary talks next week on reopening trade negotiations, Prime Minis- ter Trudeau said at a news con- ference today. Trade Minister Jean-Lue Pepin will meet George Shultz, the U.S. secretary of the treas- ury who succeeded John B. Con- nally this spring after trade talks broke down. If the preliminary discussions Indicate success would be achieved in new talks, Mr. Tru- deau said, he and President Nixon will be prepared to "send our full teams in." Indians might blow up pipeline TNUVTK, N.W.T. CCP) Indi- ans in the Mackenzie Delta are frustrated enough to blow up the pipeline to the south when it is built, a Roman Catholic priest told Energy Minister Donald Macdonald Tuesday. Rev. Joseph Adam said the Indians feel they are entitled to a share of the proposed pipe- line's profits because of their aboriginal rights. The Oblate priest, a mission- ary in the Arctic for 35 years, made the statement at a dinner given by Inuvik residents for Mr. Macdonald. He asked that the government guarantee native rights and na- tive entitlement to a share of pipeline profits. The proposed pipeline route up the Mackenzie would cross land claimed by the Indians. "These people have a right to then: aboriginal Father Adam said. "If people in the south won't understand that, the native people in the North won't let the oil go out." This might be done through violent action, he said. He said the natives do not op- pose the pipeline, "they just want something out of it." Meany stays out of U.S. election WASHINGTON (CP) AFL- CIO President George Meany announced today that the politi- cally-powerful labor federation will not endorse either Demo- cratic parly nominee George S.
