Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2O THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 31, 1973 Diplomats welcome fall visit planned by Trudeau to China A simple memorial stone This bi-lingual marker, a simple memorial stcne, was moved'into place for the late prime minister Lester Pearson among the quiet Gatineau Hills near Wake- field, Que. Mr. Pearson wished to 'be buried among the Gatineau Hills he loved so much, about 25 miles north of Ottawa. Two Pearson memorials honor accomplishments By JAY WALZ New York Times Service OTTAWA Ever since the death of Lester B. Pearson last December, Canada has been seeking some important way to honor the former prime minis- ter, whose skills as an interna- tional diplomat earned him a Nobel Peace Prize. Several proposals one to s united after Pearson were discard- ed, and no memorial sculpture has been commissioned. Now, however, two memo- rials one commemorating his accomplishments in world diplomacy and the other his work and interest in education taking form. This week Queen Elizabeth, back in Ottawa for the Confer- ence of Commonwealth Prime Ministers, will officially open the federal government's first building to house the depart- ment of external affairs alone. It is named the Lester B. Pearson Building. "It is appropriate that Can- ada's first physical expression of its relations with the rest of the world be named for Mr. a government spo- kesman said of the decision. I In the second tribute, a sep- arate undertaking on a scenic stretch of the Pacific seafront, ground will soon be broken for the Pearson College of the Pa- cific, an international school to promote world co-operation and understanding. According to Maryon Pear- son, the prime minister's wid- ow, the college of which Pear- son was honorary chairman, was the educational project closest to his heart. She succeeded him as chair- man and is also honorary head of the committee that has un- dertaken a campaign to raise million. As a young man Pearson, who was 75 years old at his death, taught history at the University of Toronto; later, as a career foreign service officer and a political leader, he often recalled his teaching years ros- talgically, after retiring from the prime minister's office in 1968. He accepted appointment as chancellor of Carlton Univer- sity, Ottawa, where he lectured on international affairs. Pearson was secretary of state for external affairs from 1948 to 1953, a period in which CAREERS MECHANIC WANTED Top salary end commission with five-figure bracket possible per month.

When Britain, France and Is- rael attacked Egypt in 1956, he developed formulas for com- promise that resulted in a Uni- ted Nations emergency force that kept the Israeli Egyptian border peaceful for 10 years. For this he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1957. The Lester B. Pearson Build- ing is a strikingly modern edi- fice.

APPlY: GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA PERSONNH ADMINISTRATION OFFICE 520 TERRACE BUILDING 1C6 STREET end 96 AVENUE EDMONTON, AlBERTA Vendor quickly freed NEW YORK CAP) A Vir- ginia man who was hustled into a police station by a group of teen-agers who said he offered them marijuana has been freed after pleading guilty to a re- duced charge. Charged initially with posses- sion and attempted sale of dan- gerous drugs as well as loiter- ing and endangering the wel- fare of a child, Rob- ert Martin pleaded guilty Sun- day to disorderly conduct and received a conditional dis- charge. In explaining why the charges were reduced, criminal court Judge Milwon Saraorodin said Uie "defendant had not tried to sell the marijuana to the youths. "If there is any sale of a drug, then I am as lough as any be said. If a man is arrested for having some marijuana cigarettes, I don't know of any instance where be is put in Jail.

By JOHN BURNS Special to The Herald announcement hat Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau will visit China in Oc- tober has heartened Canadian diplomats here, who see the prime minister's visit as an op- portunity to put new life into a relationship that has lost the special quality imparted to it >y the leadership Canada showed in recognizing China three years ago. In recent months it has be- come a cliche among Canadians here to, say that the honeymoon that followed recognition is over, and the hope now is that the prime minister, through personal contact with China's leaders, will do something to burnish the rather lacklustre relationship that has succeeded it. Realists acknowledged from the outset that Canada was a marginal country from the point of view of China's inter- national political perspectives, but it is only in recent times, that it has been fashionable to question the' one aspect of the relationship that has marked Canada quite clearly as one of China's special So far there has been no move to run up the storm warn- ings but Jhere have been enough gusts, particularly in the past week, to make it clear that Canada can no longer take for granted its privileged posi- tion among China's trading par- ners. At the time of recognition it was inevitable that forecasts of the growth in Canadian exports to China should be based more on enthusiasm than on a realis- tic assessment of the market, Biker bitten by young crocodile MONTREAL (CP) A young crocodile that appar- ently hitch-hiked to this city from South America inside a box of bananas tried to finish its journey Saturday on foot. Someone else's foot. Peter Ascoli, 16, was riding his bicycle across a vacant lot in a Montreal suburb "when this thing came racing out of the puddles and grabbed onto my shoe." The youth, who keeps fish as a hobby, thought at first that the 10% inch crocodile was a lizard. He scooped the reptile into an empty coffee jar he found in the lot and brought it home for examination. A check of nature books and an encyclopedia proved the catch was a crocodile. An examination of the va- cant lot turned up the empty banana boxes in which the crocodile is believed to have entered the country. Peter said he intends to keep the crocodile only a few days, and then give it to a zoo or pet shop. Forms MANUFACTURED IN LETHBRIDGE but there were few in those heady days who foresaw how tough it would be for Canada to keep its share of the Chinese market, let alone enlarge it. For those who did counsel modesty in Canadian ex- pectations there was con- firmation this week in the re- port that U.S. officials expect American exports to top million this year, the first full year that the two countries have been engaging in direct double what Can- ada can expect to sell. Then, at the week's end, came word from Australia that the Chinese are to negotiate a long-term wheat agreement viding for the purchase of four million tons of wheat over the next three deal that narrows Canadian prospects in what has been, over the past decade, the Western fanners' most lucrative market.
