Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ttwmtoy. July I TO TW UlNNIOOt MMA1D OTTAWA (CP) The Unem- ployment Insurance Commis- sion has been toid by Manpower Minister Robert Andres to stop raiding bank accounts of per- sons who received more bene- fits than they should. Mr. Andras, in a Commons reply Wednesday to David Orli- kow said that although the proce- dure is legitimate under Che law "I have suspended the approach Anybody got a light? V Anybody gof a light? Seems to be the question Fred, a young giraffe at Windsor Safari park, is asking. Fred was chewing his way through o discarded cigarette Hotels fire traps Far-retuching decision handed down Judge orders suspension of U.S. bomber raids NEW YORK (Reuter) A federal judge has ordered an end to United States operations in Cambodia in a far-reaching decision that joins tie weight of the judiciary to that of Con- gress in setting clear limita- tions to the power of a presi- dent to wage war. Judge Orrin G. Judd declared Soviet navy No. 1 on world list LONDON (AP) One of the world's leading authorities on naval power says the Soviet navy with its own air arm and a greater range of submarines is now the most powerful navy in the world. Capt. John Moore, editor of Jane's RgbOng Ships, writes in bis foreword as editor to the 1972-73 edition, published Wednesday, the most author- itative annual on the world's navies, that the Soviet navy had made "staggering advances" in tfoe last year. But the United States' high expenditure on warships and other naval craft could in time restore the balance in world naval power, he adds. Moore predicts that China, al- ready building missile destroy- ers, could soon make nuclear submarines and take its place among the world's naval pow- ers. Moore, former deputy direc- tor of Britain's naval in- telligence and himself a former submariner, became editor of Jane's Fighting Ships last year, succeeding Raymond V. B. Blackman who retired after editing the annual since Something b STIPPIITONE WAIL AND CEILING TEXTURED FINISH The exciting texture fin- ish lor walls and ceilings, inside or out. Ready to use.

Moore said of the Soviet navy: "Three major classes of ships have appeared, each sev- eral leaps ahead of its prede- cessor." Moore, however, added: "A great deal of money is also being spent by the U.S.A. on innovations such as hov- ercraft and hydrofoils. This big American expenditure could well redress the balance of power in the future and over- come the disadvantages of the U.S. Navy's largely over-age fleet." "Both (China and Japan) be- long to countries which must be considered, for different rea- sons, as very major he wrote. Both were defence forces but both had different jobs to do. As for China, Moore was in doubt wheter its navy will stay a defence force much longer. "New submarines, possibly nuclear, have been seen and, with her ability to rival the Western nations in missBe and nuclear matters, there seVms no reason why she should not euiMt'k, on a Polaris-type pro- Moore said. Okotoks told to reduce pollution OKOTOKS (CP) The Al- berta government has ordered the town of Okotoks, 10 miles south of Calgary to reduce pol- lution of Sheep River by April 1, 1974. Phfl Ullman, head of the southern Alberta branch of the department of the said Wednesday the department has issued a water quality or- der to the town. The order stipulates that a new sewage treatment plant must be built by the town be- fore April L Violation of the order carries a rnariinmn fine of per day. The existing plant, overloaded and 20 years old, is damping "almost raw sew- age" into the river which runs through the town, he said. "When tbe new plant is finish- ed, it should be working at 90 per cent efficiency in other words, tbe pollutants should be reduced by 90 per cent" Mayor Pat Mulligan of Oko- toks said tbe town council plan- ned to bnOd a new sewage plant after January, 1974. Many residents are cuucetn- ed with possible poOution at a campground site three miles ctownstream from the sewage treatment outlet, tbe mayor said. that U.S. involvement in Cam- bodia was unconstitutional be- cause Congress had not author- ized it. In a 32-page memo- randum accompanying the deci- sion, the judge wrote: "The extent of the power granted by Congress depends on the language used by Congress', not on the prtsident's state- ments to Congress. An emer- gency does not create power un- less Congress has granted it." Burt Neubome, lawyer for the Brooklyn, a Democrat, and four American Civil Liberties Union air force officers as plaintiffs, said that the decision "estab- lishes the precedence which in- hibits the president from con- ducting military operations wiabout the consent of Con- Judge Judd, a Republican is- sued a permanent injunction but stayed its execution until Friday, July 27, to allow tte federal government time to ap- peal. TEVIE IS SHORT In his decision, Judge Judd showed that he was mindful that it came only 21 days before a congressionaUy-mandated or- der to halt U-S. bombing in Cambodia and that President Nixon had vetoed an earlier congressional effort to halt the bombing immediately and that Congress bad failed to overide the veto by the necessary two- thirds vote. Tbe judge de- clared: "It cannot be tbe rule that the president needs a vote of only one-third plus one of either house in order to conduct a war, but this would be a con- sequence of holding that Con- gress must over-ride a presi- dential vote in order to termi- nate hostilities which ft has not authorized... "Tbe period from now until Aug. 15 is a relatively short pe- riod, however, and tbe court cannot say that the Cambodian and American lives which may be lost dining the next three weeks are so unimportant that it should defer action in this case still further." Tbe decision comes on the heels of a War Powers Act passed by Congress which also severely limits tbe authority of a U.S. president to commit American servicemen to war. President Nixon has threatned to veto that bilL rrs INSURANCE Neubome said that Judge Judd's decision, if upheld, pro-' vides further insurance mat the president's power in tins regard would be curtailed. Neubome also said that what Judge Judd's action also sig- nifies is that tbe two arms of tbe United Stales tripartite form of government the juditiay and Congress have joined forces against tbe third set clearly boundaries of executive authority. Nenborne -'-aid be was con- fident that Judge Jndd's deci- sion would be upheld in an ap- peals court However, be ex- pected feat tbe case would be nxragbt to the Supreme Court of the United States. BANK ACCOUNT RAIDS SUSPENDED until a total examination is pos- sible." The issue arose July 16 when Alfred Hales (PC-Well- ington) told the Commons an unemployed father of five in Waterloo, Out., had his meager savings wiped out by the UIC because be could not repay im- mediately a overpayment in benefits. Mr. Haete said the man did not know that a 95.14 balance bad been seized from the ac- count until his wife tried to withdraw money after his unemployment benefits had It arose again a week, ago when Terry O'Connor (PC-Hal- ton) said the minister had ig- nored a Feb. 27 letter about a similar incident in which was seized from an account. PROMISED CHECK Mr. Andras told Mr. O'Connor then be was "investigating the whole practice to see what can be done." "I want to refer to the act to see what the powers and obliga- tions are. I do not condom the practice and, if there to any way to change that policy, I in- tend to do so." The minister told the House Wednesday, however, that the seizures are legal because the VIC act provides for such' ac- tion. Leonel Beandoin (SC-Wcb- mond) asked whether the de- partment would continue to gar- nisfaee the wages of persons who had received too much money from toe UIC when unemployed. Mr. Andras replied tttat this afeo is provided for in the act and was done only after ''all reasonable programs" of nego- tiation had been eihausted. Walkout ties up CP Air operations LONDON (CP) Alarming reports on the lack of fire pro- tection in many British hotels are merging in tbe wake of the tragedy Tuesday in a Scottish seafront hotel in which nine persons died. The five-storey hotel bad no Hre-escape and holidayers were trapped on upper floors as the main staircase collapsed. The Evening Standard reports that only 15 hotels out of an es- timated in Greater London have been granted fire safety certificates under tighter safety legislation passed more than a year ago. About half die capital's hotels and boarding-houses are "openly breaking the the newspaper says, while the re- maining have applied for certificates but have sot yet re- ceived them. A spokesman for the Greater London council said it can take up to nine months for a certificate to be issued.

The tail, narrow building became a raging inferno within minutes from a blaze of un- known origin. A fire officer saic stone walls prevented it spread- nig to four other waterfront b> tels in the same row. ADMITS FAILING Hotel owner Ian Nicholson 38, who has owned the Espla node for 10 years, admittec sadly that be had not carried out recommendations made bj fire prevention officers more than year ago.

VANCOUVER CP Air's machinists walked off the job at noon PDT (3 p.m. EDT) Wednesday after last- minute negotiations between tbe union and the company broke ff Tuesday night. The machinists, members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Union set up picket lines at the company's downtown offices, ticket offices, executive offices, and at tbe main entrance to the airport.

The company has said it would restrict wage increases to the 16 per cent recently won by Air Canada machinists and wants a two-year agreement. The spokesman said it is ex- pected the strike will be a long one. He afeo repeated Wednesday the union's concern for the safety of airline passengers while supervisory personnel take over in an effort to keep the airline flying. Tony Steel, president of IAM Local 764, said federal Trans- port Minister Jean Marcband had been asked to shut down the airline in the event of a strike as a safety precaution. Mr. Marcband isaid the trans- port ministry will have observ- ers at all major bases to over- see procedures and the com- pany said all the airline's maintenance supervisors are li- censed aircraft maintenance en- gineers.

He said CP Air will operate with supervisory personnel for "as long as we can in a safe and convenient manner." In the event of a total shut- down the airline would lose a day in revenue. CP Air runs 420 flights a week throughout the world and imme- diately cut total service to less than half with 200 flights when the machinists walked off. The airline's trans-continental operation has been curtailed from nine to four flights a day and service will be limited-to Vancouver, Toronto and Mon- treal AH flights have been can- celled from Vancouver to San FYantisco as well as all Can- ada-to-Mexico flights, although the Mexican-South American service will continue to operate.
