Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI IETHBRIDO! HERALO July WO Stanfield Joins In Appeal To Ban Arms Sale LONDON (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield has added his appeal to those of oth- ers who have urged Prime Min- ister Heath to abandon plans to sell arms to South Africa. Stanfield is reported to have told Heath at a private meeting Monday that he doubts whether the strategic advantages to be gained by Britain in such arms sales would be worth the prob- lems that would ensue in the Commonwealth. Informants said Stanfield also gained the impression Heath feels strongly about the issue and that he may continue to pursue exchanges with the Com- monwealth to try to convince leaders about the merits of the British case. In a speech at the Foreign Af- fairs Club, Stanfield referred to the Commonwealth problem in these words: Premiers Pass Up- i Meeting WINNIPEG (CP) Two pro- vincial heads of government will be missing at the Canadian premiers' conference here next week, one by choice and one for medical reasons. Premier J. R. S'mallwood of Newfoundland is passing up the meeting, as he has in recent years, becaue he doesn't think it is productive. Premier John Roberts of On- tario has to go to hospital for surgery to an injured foot. The province will be represented si the Aug. 3-5 conference by Mu- nicipal Affairs Minister Darcy McKeough. Largest ministerial represen- tation will be from New Bruns- wick. Premier Louis Robichaud is bringing along finance and Industry Minister L. G. Des- Brisay, Resources Minister Wil- liam R Duffle and H. II. Wil- liamson, minister of economic growth. Accompanying Premier G. I. Smith of Nova Scotia will be Welfare Minister G. A. Tidman. Premier Alex Campbell of Prince Edward Island is joined by L. B. Stewart, minister of health and municipal affairs. Premier Ross Thatcher of Saskatchewan will head a cabi- net delegation including Munici- pal Affairs Minister C. L. B. Esjey and Agriculture Minister Douglas T. Macfarlane. Attor Bey-General Edgar. Gerhart of Alberta will accompany Pre- mier Harry Strom. Premiers Hobert Eourassa of Quebec and W. A. C. Bennett of British Columbia are not bring- ing along cabinet colleagues. Premier Ed Schreyer of Man- itoba, the host, is expected to include some cabinet colleagues ta the talks. Attending as observers will be federal officials in the fields of finance, federal-provin- oal relations and the constitu- tional conference secretariat. ition "I would appeal to all govern has ments of Commonwealth coun tries to do nothing to imper the harmonious relations tha generally exist among the coui tries involved. And above al we must remember that it i precisely the inter-racial char acter of the Commonwealth tha gives it particular value." GUARDIAN COMMENTS The Guardian, to touching o Stanfield's private talks wit Heath, said it is clear to Britisi ministers that Canada is solidlj opposed to the resumption o arms to South Africa. The paper said that Stanfield takes the same position as Prime Minister Trudeau who wrote Heath warning of the grave impact such sales woulc have on Commonwealth har- mony. The Tory-supporting Daily Mail, in a political cartoon, de- picted Trudeau as cynically ap- proaching the arms issue as "a good bandwagon" rather than as an impression of serious con- cern over racial problems. However, the Scotsman, in an editorial-page summary, sug gested Trudeau is moving to- wards the position held by his predecessor, Lester Pearson, in acquiring a reputation as a Commonwealth statesman. Until Trudeau's intervention, the arms issue tended to harden into black-versus-white with Australia and New Zealand sup- porting Britain. The Scotsman article suggested that Trudeau broke this pattern. WORLD mul Kantt Dey, a 27-year-old ndian, is travelling around by bicycle.

Youth Column Transient Youth Service Tackled OTTAWA (CP) A small office in tha Canadian Welfare Council building here reaches far out into the counfry's tran- sient-youth scene. It is homo base for a study group formed to promote hos- tel services for the thousands of transient youth across the country and to collect and dis- tribute information about such services this summer. The group's Esmonde-White, the 22-year- old co-ordinator, Donna Snip- per, 21, and Brad McManus, 24, all of a co-or- dinating committee of 17 per- sons in 12 cities from Victoria to St. John's, Nfld- The group also took on an- other function after the state secretary's department de- cided that would be granted for youth hostels In armories across Canada. "The department's original idea was to give the money to students' pniirwilc students' Patrick said in an interview. "It had no real understanding of what the youth network was al- though it did a great deal in recognizing the problem and initiating action." Through Andy Cohen of the department's committee on Sulphur Industry In Rough Shape CALGARY (CP) -A four committee represent i n; provincial sulphur producer) was formed here to seek ways of increasing the market for the petroleum byproduct The committee is to review royalty rates and discuss pro- rationing of sales. Russell Patrick, Alberta min- ister of mines and min.erals called the meeting of industry representatives and told them the decrease in sulphur prices has cost the province more than in royalties. The government takes a one- sixth royalty on the product, but also pays for part of the cost of converting the sulphur into its elemental state after it INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.

PRICE SAGS The price of sulphuf to pro- ducers dropped from- a high of a long ton in 1967 to a long ton in April of this year. Mr. Patrick said the meet- ing would be the first of sev- eral to discuss problems facing the sulphur industry. Names of the committee members were not available. The minister said production of sulphur has been rising for several years and prospects for the industry are not good. For- mer sulphur importers were be- coming exporters. About half the total sulphur production is used in the man- ufacture of fertilizers, the min- ister said, but the demand for fertilizer has dropped in the last two years. youth, the study group be- came involved. "The state secretary's de- partment started negotiations with us and the plan origi- nally was that we would be the intermediary between the kids and the government, but that has been flexible. "A lot of budgets have been co-ordinated through off- ice." The armories are run by local committees, Patrick ex- plained. The study group hopes to gain much informa- tion from them. "We also want to keep up a good information flow with private said Donna, who plans to do graduate studies in social werk. As part of their summer work each of the three staff members is to visit some of the hostels to get a first-hand look at how things are going. "When I travel, I usually stay in a hostel because I'm in closer contact with the peo- ple I try to said Pat- nek. AIM IS CHEAP LODGING He says he hopes a more permanent hostel system can be set up in the future- Brad, a law student at the University of Ottawa, shares this aspiration. Some perma- nent hostels are needed to help the transient youths who do not return to school in the fall, he says. These were per- haps the most alienated peo- ple, "the kids who need a wider range of services." CLAIM CHUTE RECORD MOSCOW (AP) Soviet par- achutist Lt.-CoI.

Plane-Versus-Bird Researchers Play Own Chicken Game OTTAWA (CP) The version of "chicken" played by scien- tists at the national aeronautical establishment is no game. When bird meets plane, re- sults can be tragic. The bird always ends up In pieces. But at least one pilol lied when a bird crashed lirough his windscreen. Birds lave caused some plane crashes are suspected to have ;auscd others. A, research group at the aero- nautical establishment, an arm of the National Research Coun- cil, is working on ways to im- >rove the odds for survival ot lird-struck aircraft. With their "bird a flight mpact simulator in formal lan- guage, they can duplicate the equence of events when a big bird such as a duck has a high- peed encounter with an air- j-aft. By determining the stress characteristics of various met- is or plastics, they hope to find naterials and methods of con- traction that will make air- lanes invulnerable to birds. A 70-foot pneumatic cannon lat uses dead chickens or sim- lated birds for ammunition is le heart of the bird gun. In rinciple, it's similar to an air [fie. A sudden blast propels the chicken or simulated bird at speeds up to 620 miles an hour. The horizontal stabilizer from the tail assembly of a DC-8 jetli- ner was subjected to tests. A four-pound chicken fired at its leading edge at 345 miles an hour passed completely through it, severing its main supporting beam. J. W. Noonan, group leader ol the structures and materials section at the aeronautical es- tablishment, said if a similar strike had occurred while Die plane was in flight, it probably would have crashed. Chances of a plane being struck by a bird are, however, less than one in Mr. Noonan said. In a test staged for reporters and photographers, another chicken was fired at 172 miles an hour at a three-quarter-inch plexiglass plate. The plexiglass was shattered, the chicken scat- ;ered. The bird struck the plex- iglass with a force of more than pounds. Chickens are used in the tests jecause they are readily availa- >le and approximate the size of birds which might be encoun- tered. Although there is little difference in the effect of chick- ens or their artificial counter- parts, chickens must be used when testing aircraft to see. whether they meet specifi- cations. The simulated birds are sim- ply cylindrical bags filled with water, cellulose gum and alumi- num acetate. Currently, NRC says the bird gun is being used to find out whether the Tutor jet trainer, used by the defence depart- ment, can be refitted. with an acrylic windscreen.
