Prime Minister Trudeau hid: rated the official Canadian posi tion in a letter earlier t li i month to the British govern ment warning that the arm sale would seriously alicnat many black African countries South Africa is ruled by a whit minority which enforces racia separation. British sources indicate th letter was a major factor Britain to postponing a final de- cision pending further study and discussions- External AffairsMiniste: Mitchell Sharp has also ex pressed the government's disap proval of the invest ment in South Africa of Poly mer Corp., a Crown companj engaged mainly in the produc tion of rubber and synthetic products. There has been no offida reply from the company 01 from Supply Minister James Richardson the minister re- sponsible for Polymer but sources say the firm's invest- ment will be sold when mar- ket conditions are favorable. The Polymer investment rep- resents six per cent owner- ship in a firm known as Sentra- cliem Ltd., a subsidiary of the Hubber Co. of South Africa Ltd. TRADE WILL CONTINUE A recent government foreign policy statement said Canada will continue its present trade practices with South which include a system of pref- erential tariffs but expressed disapproval of the country's so- cial system. However, the attitude of Ca- nadian businessmen with lucra- tive South African investments HOW SERIOUS IS WESTERN CANADA SEPARATISM? How serious is the movement called Western Separatism, the hope of founding a new nation by uniting Manitoba, Saskatch- ewan, Alberta and British Columbia? It can be argued that the four Western provinces own more raw resources than any state in Europe and there- fore could build a potentially richer state. The clean of Canadian journal- ism, Bruce Hutchison, dissects the cause and consequences of the current uneasiness in West- em Canada in an important article in the August issue ol Reader's Digest.

Scott' president of Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd., said in an interview his firm is unconcerned with the politics or government of South Africa. "As a company, we make in- vestments on long term deci- sions and not on the political ramifications at any one par- ticular time in a country's his- he said. Ford o? Canada's subsidiary, Fortl of South Africa Ltd., is the largest car truck dealer in South Africa w i t h wholesale auto sales of units in up from in 19C8. Ford's share of the total car- truck market was 21.3 per cent in 1969, up from 20.5 per cent in 3968. OPERATES MANY PLACES A spokesman for Sun Life As- surance Co. of Canada Ltd., with a South African investment, said the company operates in man y countrie around the world in all types o political climates. "There is no logic in singlin out South Africa and savin that because a lot of p e o p 1 have suddenly become aware o its race policies we should sto selling insurance there and in vesting he said. The Aluminum Co. of Can ada Ltd. was the on'y firm sur- veyed which indicated an inten ;ion to reduce its South Afri can investment substantially 3ut a business change was a factor in the decision- Alcan now is the largest alu minum supplier in South Africa with assets there valued Shipments of alumi num ingots to Alcan's South Af ican plants last year were val led at A spokesman for Alcan said lowever, the company has >egun selling shares in its South African holdings to South AM ans. Ke said this was mainly be- :ause the South African govern- ment had decided to build its >wn aluminum smelter' to go nto operation in 1971 and the utlopk for Canadian exports "is ero." But an addsd reason for sell- ing, the spokesman said, is pressure from some black-ruled Guyana and Jamaica where Alcan has larger investments than those in South Africa. MAKE FAKH MACHINERY Another Canadian firm, Mas- sey-Ferguson Ltd., holds 52 per cent of Massey-Ferguson South Africa Ltd. A spokesman for the Cana- dian firm said in an interview that 52 per cent represents a total value of Both firms manufacture farm ma- chinery and other equipment. The South African subsidiary had net sales of in 1969 and employs people, the spokesman said. A statement issued by an of- ficial of the Canadian company said Massey-Ferguson believes completely in the principle of free trade with all countries. South Africa is no exception to this principle. Another Canadian with large holdings in South Africa is George Weston, chairman of the board of George Weston Ltd-, holding company for a gigantic food manufacturing chain and other interests through out the world. P. Connell, vice-president of George Weston Ltd., said the South African investm e n t is held through Associated British Foods, which in turn controls the Premier Milling group of bakeries in South Africa. M. Connell said he could not release the value of the South African holdings. "They are profitable and doing well, I be- lieve, and there's no thought of reducing the investment." The- Dominion Bm'eau of Sta- tistics lists the total Canadian private direct is South Africa as at the end of 1967 out of a total of for all Africa. These figures however do not reflect investment that does not constitute ownership. Experts Still Baffled On Causes UN Probe On Crime 'No Help UNITED NATIONS (AP) A new United Nations report says that despite long investi- gation, the experts still do not know what causes crime. "Despite the years of exten- sive and intensive study and research in many countries, the vital factors causing crime still escape unequivo- cal, positive says a paper prepared by the UN Secretariat. "For nearly every factor known to be associated with delinquency, from 'broken homes' and mental deficiency to overcrowding, delinquent subcultures, child neglect and poverty, it is still possible to show at least as many young people subjected to such con- ditions who do not commit crime as those who do." The paper is titled Social Defence Policies in Relation to Development Planning. It lists as "the main aspects of development which have been thought" potentially crime-in- ducing: Urbanization, Indus- trializatioh, population growth, migration from farm to city and technological change. Urbanization, it explains, means more "uncontrolled children on the streets of a town" and "implies more op- portunities for crime with less risk of detection and a dis- turbing juxtaposition of afflu- ence and poverty. ;The effect of industriali- zation on crime is said to be through other factors: of- fering work to women who then may not be able to give proper care to their children young people being at- tacted to town when there is still not sufficient work to ;o around. "Excessive population jrowth leads to crime by add- ng weight to the burden on the wage earner, overcrowd- ing small houses, outgrowing school facilities. "However most of these influences have pro- voked endeavor and greatness as well as delinquency. It de- pends on the person." "Though crime in general grows as a country the paper states, "the propor- t i o n a t e difference between male and female delinquency usually remains unchanged until the later phase of devel- opment and urban complex- ity, when female delinquency increases." In those phases, too, come "the tremendous increase in drug trafficking and drug tak- ing and the effect of this on the rise of other crimes be- cause of the addicts' need to obtain funds for drugs." "Mass communications and the development of a 'youth culture' in the world make it likely that tlu's is a fashion which could cross frontiers easily. "New waves of crime de- rive from student protests and the emergence of the uni- versity population as a poli- tical force." The paper will be discussed at the fourth UN Conference on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offen- ders, to be held in Kyoto, Japan, Aug. 17-26. DDT Substitutes In Pests Battle Woetw WATCHBAND CALENDAR treasure. Have them finished at Woolco, where you get the lowest price from Canada's highest quality photo finish- ing plants, and remember at VVooIco you pay only for the pictures you coupons. By SANDY McFARLANE Canadian press Staff Writer Mosquitoes and other house- hold pests may be finding life easier, but recent bans against DDT have brought no similar reprieve for most crop insects as Canadian farmers continue to battle them with substitute insecticides. A C r o s s-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that even in Newfoundland and New Brunswick, still without bans against DDT and certain weed- killers, farmers concerned about pollution are voluntarily turning to substitutes. Increases in o n i on maggots in Ontario and spruce bud- worms in New Brunswick are the only serious threats to crops or timber so far attri- buted to reductions in DDT use, the survey shows, but there have been increased problems with mosquitoes, black flies, bedbugs and human lice in some areas. Tlie bans affect pesticides and weed-killers such as which do not break down chemically soon after being ap- plied and so build up in plant and animal tissues to danger- ous levels. FACE HIGHER COSTS The survey shows that farm- ei's face higher production costs because substitute chemi- cals with shorter residual lives must be applied more often and some, which are more toxic to the user, applied with greater care, but they have voiced no major opposition to the bans. The long life chemicals are still allowed on some crops for which no effective substitutes have been found' such as to- bacco and apples in Ontario and rapeseed in Saskatchewan. Wildlife services across the country report it is still too early to determine whether ani- mals, expected to bo the ma- jor beneficiaries of the bans, are any healthier. In Newfoundland DDT now is used mainly for root crops, says Gerald Morgan, district superintendent of the federal agriculture department's pro- duction and marketing branch. It is most effective against Uie army worm and the purple- back cabbage worm. Ray Morris, an entomologist also with the federal depart- ment, says farmers get good I'esults from DDT-substitutES Sevin, Methoxychlor and Mala- thion. Householders are major users of DDT to control mos- quitoes, black flies and insects on trees and shrubs. WESTERN SITUATION Manitoba officials report few complaints from farmers, no major lobby for reinstatement of banned chemicals, and no increase in the insect popula- tion as a result of the DDT ban. In Saskatchewan, C. F. Bar- rett of Hegina, director of pest control, says pesticides and herbicides are not used in the west to the extent they are in eastern Canada, and so prob- lems because of the ban are "minimal in Saskatchewan." M. E. Taylor of Saskatoon, entomologist with the federal agriculture department, says DDT is still used to fight flea beetles and turnip' beetles on rapeseed, one of 12 crops for which the province has not banned it. An Alferta agriculture-de- partment spokesman says ani- mal life has not been affected by the ban on DDT, but there are increased problems with mosquitoes, black flies, head- lice and human and "we are going to have to find some replacements." NO SIARKED EFFECT There have been no requests for reinstatement, the spokes- man said. In B r i t ish Columbia, which had strict control over DDT for five years, the ban has had no marked effect, a provincial ag- riculture department spokes- man says. The defoliant Tordon, con- taining is used by the B.C. Hydro and Power Author- ity to clear rights of way. Dr- Gordon Shrum, chairman of the authority, publicly drank a glass of Tordon solu- tion double the normal spray- ing strength July 17 to prove that the chemical is not dan- gerous.

Riinl Shaw now plans to travel by train to Osaka, about 320 miles southwest of Tokyo. The Canadian embassy said Shaw claims he skated aboul miles from his home in Victoria to Expo 67 fairgrounds in Montreal three years ago. Plane Pirate Surrenders CORDOBA, Argentina (Beu- ters) The lone Bolivian hi- jacker of an Argentine airliner with 33 persons aboard stirren- dered today after 14 hours in command of the plane. Officials said Lorenzo Hermin Jurado Albornoz, about 25, who earlier this week tried to com- mit suicide, surrendered to po- lice when the Aerolineas Argen- tina Airlines, Boeing 737 was un- able to take off again because of refuelling difficulties. Jurado Albornoz gave up his attempt to reach Cuba after the plane had been at Cordoba air- port for seven hours. The pas- sengers filed off the plane sec- onds after him. The airliner was seized during a domestic flight from the northern town of Salta to Cor- doba. It zigzagged for seven hours through Argentina, O u O O O u _i O O Thursday Evening, Friday and Saturday Quantities Limited Ws Reserve the Right to Limit Quantities MCGREGOR BRAND DRESS HOSE Red, and Orion with Nylon stretch.
