Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI 1ITKSRIDOI HWALD Thuridoy, July 2J, 1971 Comment by officials on Nixon trip banned By JOHN HEFFEHNAN WASHINGTON (Reuter) A stale department ban on official comment has underlined the Nixon administration's determi- nation to safeguard the ap- proach to the Peking summit now that the groundwork has been laid by Henry A. Kissin- ger. The state department dis- closed Wednesday night that State Secretary William Rogers has order'ed department offi- cials not to discuss President Nixon's planned trip in public. It was thought that both China and the United States most likely have a good idea of the scope and range of what sub- jects will be discussed when Nixon flies to Peking for talks with Chou and Communist party Chairman Mao Tse-tung. High on Uie summit agenda probably will be the Indochina war, an eventual exchange of diplomatic missions, C h i n a 's seat in the United UN membership for Peking has not been decided before Nixon the future of Tai- wan. There was strong belief in Washington that Kissinger, the president's national security ad- viser, would not have spent about 20 hours in Peking talking to Chou without having reached some substantive, if tentative, agreement on the areas which might be explored later. ASSURES TAIWAN The White House, meanwhile, gave Taiwan renewed assur- ance on U.S. defence commit- ments after the Senate foreign relations committee voted Wednesday to repeal the 1955 Formosa resolution. The resolution, pushed through Congress in 1955 after the Communists seized a Na- tionalist-held offshore island and seemed poised for more at- tacks, authorized the president to use necessary force to pro- tect Taiwan. The White House emphasized that even ii Congress as a whole voted to repeal the resolution, it would not affect the president's ability to send forces to Tai- wan's aid in an emergency. As far as Indochina is con- cerned, Nixon already has moved to scotch speculation that the trip might be connected with an end to the war. But observers said this sub- ject was of such fundamental importance to the United Slates that Nixon could not forego the opportunity of talking about it- Rogers reinforced the presi- dent's "no speculation" theme by ordering state department officials not to discuss publicly the president's decision to go to China or anything connected with it. Young says board had some success EDMONTON (CP) "Fine words butter no parsnips." This is one of the things Dr. John Young says the federal prices and income commission learned in Hie last two years during its fight against inflation. Dr. Young, commission head, told the Rotary Club of Edmon- ton today that the commission ted "limited success." What it learned was that ex- hortations and other fine words won't make anti-inflation mea sures any more palatable or workable unless they are HITS CENTURY MARK Catholic Father George M. Trunk, who will celebrate hit 101st birthday Sept. 1, still rises at a.m. to say a mass in the Slovenian Catholic church in San Francisco. Believed to be the oldest active priest in the United States, Father Trunk was ordained 76 ago in Austria. PRICE REDUCED!

He spoke of more direct con trols, whether voluntary or mandatory, but said they could only be a supplement to strong government measures to fight any other inflation that comes along. ALLOWED TO FINISH JOB The commission's life was re- cently extended to the end of next June to enable it to finish preparing standby measures for fighting future inflation. Dr. Young said the commis- sion's work since it was set up in 1969 proved that "general ap- psals for restraint by public fig- ures, or general expressions of goodwill by representatives o[ interest groups, are unlikely in themselves to lead to substan- tial results." But there was some success. The commission sought broad agreement in 1969 among labor, management and government to hold down prices, wage and sal- ary increases, and other infla- tionary pressures. Labor with- drew from discussions leading to such an agreement, but busi- ness agreed to hold price in- creases In 1970 to something less than cost increases. Tlie commission now has counted 100 oases in which "proposed price increases of some significance" were re- duced, postponed, or not made at all because of the commis- sion's work. 'In combination with soft market conditions, the tion of the exchange rate, and the price war among grocery chains, it was one of the con- tributing factors which made the rate of price increase in Canada in 1970 the lowest among industrial Dr. Young said.

(AP) The Apollo 15 astronauts massed up a chance for some leisure time today and climbed aboard spaceship simulators to practise key manoeuvres they'll execute in lunar orbit. The space agency had re- ported that today David Scott, James Irwin and Alfred Worden would begin easing off on their heavy training program and would relax for Monday's blast- off to the moon and one of his- tory's most important scientific explorations. But this morning, Scott and Irwin boarded the lunar module simulator and Worden was in the command ship trainer. After lunch, Scott and Irwin planned a review of procedures to be followed before and after three moon bi'.ggy driving ex- cursions they are to make dur- ing 67 hours on the lunar sur- face.

Ygor Van Veed, was killed and Edward Mervin Lamb, 23, was injured in the accident. RCMP said a van pulled out to pass the two cyclists on the divided highway and a semi- trailer truck following the van apparently failed to see the two. ney on a Saturn V rocket at a.m. EDT Monday. Wednesday, all three passed their final major physical exam- inations, doctors said, with "flying colors." At the launch pad, the count- down, which began Tuesday, continued smoothly. Scott and Irwin are to land on the moon July 30 at a site they call Hadley Apennine. It is sur- rounded by the peaks of tie Apennine Moun- tains and a meandering gorge named Hadley Rille. The site was selected because it will enable the moonmen to drive their four-wheel moon buggy to five geological fea- tures. These are the mountain front, which may contain origi- nal lunar crust; the gorge, per- haps carved by lava flow; in> pact craters; a flat area called the Marsh of Decay, and cra- ters which may have been vol- cano eruptions. The three previous moon-land- ing teams each had only one ge- ology feature to study, either a flat plain or lughlands.

MEMBERS AND INVITED OUISTSI NAPANEE, Ont. (CP) Eight MUlhaven Penitentiary guards Wednesday were com- mitted to trial on 17 charges of assaulting prisoners. The committals came at the conclusion of three days of pre- liminary hearings. No trial date was set.
