Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June S ign ing au tog rap h Conservative leader Robert Stanfield signs an autograph on the placard of a Tory party supporter in Renfrew, Ont. Friday, 60 miles west of Ottawa. Mr. Stan- field visited a number of towns between North Bay and Ottawa campaigning for the July 8 election. Provincial lottery orth million TORONTO (CP) A study- done for the Ontario govern- ment indicates that a provin- cially-run lottery could net in excess of S60 million. A single lottery could gross SI 17 million, of which 40 per cent would be required to pay costs and prizes, leaving the government more than milHon in profit. The estimates are considered by some to be conservative. The study, not an extensive one but valid enough to assess the potential of lotteries, may be one reason why Premier William Davis smiles when asked how he intends to finance the government's major sports development at Bronte, near Hamilton. Mr. Davis has already said the government is considering a provincial lottery system, but it hasn't become cabinet policy. However, there are in- dications the province will use Bronte to launch its first lot- tery, probably within a few months. Mr. Davis announced May 1 a five-phase program to build sports and recreation facilities at Bronte, starting with a ?3.8million Olympic- size pool. The pool would be the centre-piece of a giant sports centre in a provincial park setting where athletes, managers and coaches would go to train and compete in Forum to promote rail transport OTTAWA (CP) A new fo- rum to promote co-ordinated development of rail transport in Canada was announced by the transport department Friday. The new committee will permit the transport department's transportation development agency, the Railway Association of Canada, and other groups to exchange ideas and information, the department said in a news release. It also may make recommendations to the government. Among other groups that will be invited to join the group are the National Research Council, the Canadian transport commis- sion, the Canadian Institute of Guided Ground Transport at Queen's University the department said. Ronald G. Maughan. who headed a recently completed Arctic rail study for the federal government, will be committee chairman. The Arctic rail group looked into the feasibility of building an Arctic oil and gas railway. Mr. Maughan was special assistant to Canadian National's systems vice- president of operations and maintenanie before his appointment to the Arctic rail study. many amateur sports. All the facilities would have to be built in time for the 1981 Canada Winter Games to be staged at Bronte. Government planners hope to be able to turn the first sod this fall. Government officials are enthused over the prospects of lotteries to finance amateur sport, and say they need only three months to get one in operation. Considering the success government lotteries have had elsewhere. Ontario's entry into the field appears long overdue. Ontario money has helped build facilities and enriched government coffers in other jurisdictions. Consider the na- tional contribution to Expo 67 in Montreal and the facilities that city will obtain because of the 1976 Olympic Games. As the most populous and af- fluent province in Canada. On- tario's contribution to these projects is substantial. DIVERT MONEY Ontario citizens buy British soccer pools and support lot- teries in Michigan. New York, New Jersey. Quebec and that could be diverted to lotteries at home. Manitoba's net for three lot- teries last year was more than million. Promoters of the Olympic lottery to support the Montreal games cannot print enough tickets to meet the de- mand. Among Ontario government planners, there was an initial fear that they may be too late with their scheme but ex- perience in Quebec. Sweden. France and England proved that lotteries are com- plementary to each other. India's new arms role put to test By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK (CP) Within a few weeks, a consortium of 13 donor countries, including Canada and the United States, will meet in Paris to discuss how much aid they should give to India. The World Bank estimates India will need at least billion during the next five years to keep her head above water and provide a minimum standard of living for "a population that will approach 600 million. Canada has provided India with billion in aid over the years and the United States perhaps 10 times as much. Both countries are reported reassessing their aid programs. India's successful under- Montreal still No. 1 air centre MONTREAL (CP) Jean- Pierre Goyer, minister of sup- ply and services, said in a let- ter made public Friday that Air Canada's plans to move some maintenance facilities to Winnipeg will in no way endanger the position of Montreal as "the major centre in the aerospace industry in Canada." Mr. Goyer said the activity in Winnipeg would not endanger jobs in Montreal but would in fact increase the workload substantially. "New work will be introduced to increase the level of business in key areas across the country. Therefore the facility at Montreal will not face either a diminishing or unvarying workload, but, in fact, the workload will Mr. Goyer said. The minister was replying to a letter sent to him and other House members for the Montreal area by the president of Air Canada's International Machinist's Union. The letter had expressed concern over the fu- ture of the airline's mainte- nance and overhaul base at Dorval. intention is not to move jobs from one part of the country to another but to develop the aerospace industry in such a way that the number of jobs will increase in every region." Mr. Goyer said. Asked about what kind of overhaul work the airline is expected to perform at the Winnipeg facility, Mr. Goyer said the decision was up to Air Canada. "To my knowledge Air Can- ada is not likely to send the Boeing 727 overhaul to Winni- peg." he said. It has already been announced that Boeing 707 aircraft belonging to the department of national defence will be serviced at Winnipeg. Prison closes PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) The Portsmouth naval prison, known by sailors as the Castle or the Rock, ended 76 years of service Friday when its final two prisoners were transferred to a federal penitentiary. A year ago, the Pentagon ordered the prison closed as part of an economy move. ground nuclear test May 18 brought widespread criticism from many of the donor coun- tries although India insisted the test was for peaceful uses only. Whether that foreign criticism will affect future aid to India remains to be seen. There are foreign investors who look upon India as an attractive place to put their money in certain sectors. Tril'oki Nath Kaul, India's ambassador to the United States, said in a recent inter- view that he thinks "all this noise" about the nuclear test will die out. I don't see why it should affect economic co-operation between India and other countries. But we will not accept any aid or co-operation from any other country, how- ever big and strong or friendly it may be to us, if there are political or other strings at- tached to it. "We will not change our in- ternal or external polices just because we get. or we do not get, any aid or co- operation from other countries. Kaul. a 62-year-old career diplomat who entered the In- dian civil service in 1937. said one of India's main problems is lack of technology and the means and resources to make full use of its own capabilities and resources. SEES HARD TIME He sees the time coming when it will be more difficult to obtain aid. One example of India's vast resources is 200 billion tons :r. reserves. Thus, India wants to make more use of coal now that imported oil has become so costly. India would like to shift to coal-based power for its railway transportation system and fertilizer factories. The country's aim is self-re- liance. We are investing 92 per cent of our own resources of the current five-year plan, and we are taking foreign credits only to the extent of eight per cent in spite of the rise in prices, in spite of the rise in the prices of technology, of industrial raw materials, of food, of fertilizer as well as oil. "So that can show you the extent to which we're self- reliant. "And you know, depending on other countries is not always a happy thing. "You become sometimes so dependent that you do not exert yourself enough and make the maximum use of your own resources, talents and skills. The Indian people, he said, must have the basic minimum "cccssities. "But we do not, for instance, want to ever have four automobiles for a familv.'
