Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbndge Herald THIRD SECTION Lethbndge, Alberta, Wednesday, July 28, 1971 PAGES 33 New skirmish touched off in England Common Market debate ends By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) A Com- mons debate on Britain's pro- posed entry into Uie European Common Market droned to a close Monday while the issue exploded in the House of Lords, touching off a new skirmish in ......Opposition The four-day Commons dis- cussion produced few surprises by Labor leaders to end internal nickering on the Market ques- the badly-strained Labor party. tion. But the temporary lull was shattered when Lord George- Brown, former Labor foreign secretary, Saicused Opposition Leader Harold Wilson and other anti-Market party members of playing "cheap p o 1 i t i cal games." His charges, made at the CUSSljOn pnxiuceu lew other that a concerted attempt start of a three-day House of Lords debate on the Market, set off renewed interest in a Labor party executive meeting set for Wednesday at which Wilson is expected to officially announce his opposition to membership on the present terms. Wilson strongly opposed entry terms in the debate and earlier at a Labor conference on Eu- rope. But he has withheld a for- mal statement of his position until meeting the executive. A parliamentary vote on membership will not be held until after a further debate scheduled for October, allowing Wilson and Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath an op- portunity to rally support for their positions. Lord George-Brown noted that he had accompanied Wilson- then prime a Eu- ropean tour in 1967 which led to a Labor government decision to seek Market membership. The outspoken former minis- ter said Monday the terms Labor was then prepared to ac- cept were not significantly dif- ferent from those which now have been obtained. Wilson, appearing on national television Sunday after launch- ing a new book on the 1964-70 Labor administration, said Lord George-Brown appeared ready in 1967 to accept Market ment- bership on practically any terms. Lord George Brown scorned the Labor leader's comments, adding: "I would have said that was both a collection of the most emotive terms you could possi- bly use about another party while, as always giving himsel: (Wilson) the benefits of any doubts going." MAKES HEADLINES His speech made front-page headlines in most British news papers. The Daily Mirror sak "George puts the knife while the headline on the Dail> Mail read "Brown knocks Wil son for six.' The majority of Labor MP appear, however, to be opposec to Market entry and still firmlj behind Wilson. The Conservative seen} unitec a few their determination to enter Eu rope and it appears fairly cer tain that the government wil lave little difficulty in pbtainirr a parliamentary majority i support of membership. One of the major obstacle still facing the government i the need to swing public opinio behind European entry. Pot show a ?najority of voters sti oppose membership although those in favour appear to b slowly catching up.

New-born babies beaten HAMM, West Germany (Reu- ter) Eight new-born babies were brutally beaten in a ma- ternity clinic here, police said today. The police said an unknown person crept into the clinics nursery and attacked the ba- bies, between four hours and 14 days in age. Lashing out with a fist, the at- tacker broke the arms of seven of the babies and fractured the skulls five, police said. Police said they had no clues about the assailant. Guards were placed on the in- fants ward, and the injured ba- bies were moved to another hos- pital to safeguard them from further attacks. The hospital said today all the babies were out of immediate danger. It was hoped they would suffer no permanent ill effects.

Trudeau tour helicopter crashes in U.S. cornfield By GERARD McXEIL t returning from Alberta, the slip- stream kept it from spreading. An emergency landing was made and tile crew sprinted for safety as the fuselage exploded. The fuselage is made of high- density magnesium and burns like a torch, the military says. SABOTAGE DISMISSED A preliminary investigation disclosed no evidence of sabo- tage or any structural fault that would ground the fleet. A week later, Mr. and Mrs. OTTAWA (CP) The de- fence department concedes that Prime Minister Trudeau, Gov.- Gen. Michener, and perhaps royalty, probably had flown in the Voyageur helicopter that burned in a Michigan cornfield July 15. The brown United States- made twin-rotor military heli- copters have become VIP car- riers, although three of the 12 bought in 1964 have cither crashed or burned. Mr. Trudeau uses them extensively. In fact the one that crashed July 15 had been used in Mr. Trudeau's tour of Southern Al- berta the previous week. It car- ried the press while the prime minister flew in another Voya- geur. But spokesmen said it is prob- able the burned Ottawa-based 'copter had carried Mr. Tru- deau on one or another of his frequent tours. This year alone, versatile Voyagcurs have carried him up the Niagara Gorge and over the lip of the falls; into the parking lot of a Toronto hotel and away from a pier jutting into Lake Ontario. When fire ignited near the rotor Iho Vovaeeur frudeau boarded another Voya- jeur here for a 20-minute flight :o Perth, Ont. Another Voyageur crashed in Michigan in 1966, with the loss of one life, when it hit trees while trying to land in stormy weather. A 1965 crash, which also look a life, is described as a training accident at Gimli, Man. The Voyageur has a range of 300 miles and must use a U.S. Pass up raises WINDSOR, Vt. (AP) Good- year Tire and Rubber Co. em- ployees here have agreed to give up scheduled wage in- creases for the next two years to keep the shoe plant in opera- tion. A joint statement by Good- year and officials of the United Rubber Workers Union said here that the 431 members of Local 2JI9 will not receive in- creases of 26 cents an hour in 1971 and again in 1972 that were provided in a contract signed last year. The current contract provides for an waeo of hourly LONDON (CP) That elu- sive British boom, so eagerly sought by so many shopkeepers, appears to be still clinging to the shadows. Splashy headlines such as "Hello, big spender" greeted the.public after Chancellor An- thony Barber's mini-budget a week ago. Barber reduced the sales tax by 18 per cent and withdrew controls on credit sales in a move many commentators pre- dicted would spark a rush to the shops in an un-British manner. In the summer heat, shop- keepers' fever rose when they calculated that in a full year the sales-tax cut would amount to consumer savings of about million. Added deprecia- tion allowances would bring the government's revenue loss to some million. And when the effect of tJie government's earlier move of halving the much-criticized job tax was taken into considera- tion, the effect of all the allow- ances and the tax cuts would mean an extra saving to the public of some billion. That, suggested the financial wizards, was an astonishing fig- ure, probably opening the eco- nomic floodgates to a torrent o) prosperity. BUSINESS UP True, for shops selling cars and color television sets, busi- ness started picking up. Lowering of the deposit re- quirements appeared to cause more of a stir than the tax re ductions. "Big spending in North on 3uu mnes ana musi use a u.o. spending in ui route to get safely from western -eported The to eastern Canada.

They have a cruising speed of 185 miles an hour, can carry 25 troops, and are ideal for politi- cal travel. Princess Anne and Prince Charles also have been passen- gers on Voyagetirs. Possibly because the impres- sive looking helicopters, coining into a field surrounded by flag- waving children, create a sense of owe, politicians like to use ttiem. They are much faster than cars and they get a politi- cian into the midst of things, unlike airplanes. Financial Times. But the shoppers' response appeared patchy. "It isn't worth two pence worth of cold said one electrical-shop manager, speak ing about Barber's tax cuts. Probably more important if the habit of British holiday makers of rushing off to the seashore by UK thousands ii summer. Birmingham and Ed inburgh shopkeepers gnimblci that the tax cuts hod come a UK wrong time. Reducing the initial deposit on a motor car purchase to 25 pc cent from 40 means lower im mediate cash outlay, but carry ing charges are high. But among manufacturer! and distributers the euphoria re mains. They arc building 11 >roduction, waiting for the big worn to take off. The most impressive result o; the tax cuts was shopkeepers' mmediate announcement o: irice reductions. But with inflation pressures till building up, the question is low long these reductions will continue. Barber himself estimates tha he effect of his mini-budget will >e a reduction of just three- quarters of one per cent on over-all consumer prices. 200 tons of food needed daily CALCUTTA (AP) To stav off the threat of widespreai deaths malnutrition among refugee children from East Pakistan, the UN Chi dren's Fund is opening l.OOC centres in eastern India Aug. 1 to dispense high protein foods.
