Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. Court Ruling Won't Benefit Military Draft Evaders In Canada By HOD CURH1E WASHINGTON (CP) director Curtis W. ex- pressed doubt today that Mon- day's Supreme Court ruling broadening the grounds for con- scientious objection would bene- fit evaders of the United State: military draft now ill Canada and elsewhere. "No, I think he replied to n question. He did not elabo- rate. Wage, Price Freeze Urged WASHINGTON (AP) -John Kenneth Galbraith, who was second in command of the United States office of price ad- ministration during the Second World War, called today for a six-month freeze of and prices affecting especially large corporations. Galbraith, who later served as ambassador to India and now is a professor of economics at Harvard University, made Iiis recommendation to the House of Representatives banking com- mittee which is considering such legislation, introduced by committee chairman Wright Patman (Dem. He said a six-month freeze should be used in working out with corporations and unions a more permanent but less dras- tic system of restraint and "needless to say, all of this ac- tion needs to be combined with a speedy liquidation of our ad- venture in His reply seemed to rule out the possibility that draft evad- ers living abroad now mighl benefit if they feel they conic qualify as conscientious objec- tors under the new, broader in- terpretation of the draft law. At another point in a lengthy press conference today he saici he feels there would be no ele- ment of "retroactivity" in the new ruling. Tarr added that it was las feeling that the new approach would not apply to men already called to military service. Other sources suggested that it also would not apply to those who either were called and did not answer because they were living abroad, or those who would have been called but could not be located. Still another source said about the only draft evader living abroad who might benefit from the new ruling was one who "hasn't been missed yet." In other words, if a young man went to Canada recently simply because he expected to be drafted but had not yet been called up, he now could return if he felt he could convince his draft board he is a legitimate conscientious objector. His only offence would be failure to no- tify his board of change of ad- which he is unlikely to be prosecuted. Others, away a long time, could be charged with failing to notify of change of address, leeing the county to evade the draft, failing to appear for a medical examination and failing to appear for induction into the armed services. "All these charges could be piled up against maybe before th board got down to the qucstioi of conscientious th source said. "What would happen to lie added, "would depend on th altitude of his local draft board (he circumstances of his depar ture, his attitude, how long he was out of the country and, o course, whether he fled after h had been called up or even in ducted." Launch Probe Into Missing Army Supplies CALGARY (CP) An inves- tigation has been laimched into the disappearance of a "fair amount" of surplus goods at Ca- nadian Forces Base, Calgary. Maj. Frank Jeffries, regional Information officer with the de- partment of national defence in Edmonton, said until the inves- tigation is completed, it will nol be known how much is missing or the value of the goods. He said the missing equip- ment involves goods that would have been turned over to Crown Assets Corporation for disposal :n surplus discount stores. Gen. Gil Leonard, base com- mander, ordered the investiga- ion more than a month ago. DETROIT MANAGER Manager Mayo Smith of De- troit Tigers was born in New London, Mo., in 1919. CRAZY Track Down Page 31 It would be "a very compli rated lie said. "But some day some brave soul will come across the bordei and say: 'Here I am, come anc get me.' Then we will have a test case that will go right up t the Supreme Court and we'll ge tlu's settled once and for all.'" BOARDS MUST DECIDE Tarr said that under Ihe court ruling the country's more than local draft board must judge whether to gran conscientious-objector status t men whose beliefs do not fit flit traditional concept of "reli gious." Asked whether the system wasn't setting an "impossibli task" for hoards in frying tc judge a man's sincerity o moral belief, Tarr said: "You may be right." Certainly, he said, the new law would greatly increase the work load of draft boards. In the next few days, Tarr said, he will send local boards these guidelines for granting conscientious objector status: man's belief must be sincere." man must be opposec to war in all forms. This deci- sion does not open the door to exemption for opposition to particular war." must be something more than a personal moral code. He needs to have taken into ac- count the thought of other wise men; he needs to have con- sulted some system of belief.1 belief needs to be the result of some rigorous kind of training."

Wodnciday, Juno 17, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD 9 Fine Arl Of Attracting Industry Trove To Us We Should CALGARY (CP) Attracting industry is largely a matter ol salesmanship and service, says Fred Jarcmchuk, manager af Marathon Realty Co. Ltd. now are discreel in their he says "They say, why should we spend a fortune checking on sites when all these municipal! tes are making affectionate ov- In the past, a city picked up a lead on an industrial develop- ment prospect and everybody in the country jumped on the bandwagon. "The real estate companies, the mayor, the premier, the Chamber' of Commerce, rail- ways and banks from four dif ferent provinces harassed the prospect with phone calls and proposals extolling the virtues of the respective locations." A newer approach was for a relocation prospect to pick up the telephone and call the in- dustrial coordinators of a half- dozen possible cities and ask them to prepare a presentaf ion. "Give us your story, prove to us why we should come to your town." Marathon, Calgary-based rea: estate arm of Canadian Pacific Railway, feel it must sell the province first, then the city and its own industrial park last, Mr. Jareinchuk said. "If it is an international de- veloper we must sell Canada first." He said it is relatively easy to sell Calgary because on per- formance we can show the eh'ent his investment will be protected in a growing market." PACKAGE EXTENSIVE A Marathon sales package in- cludes market studies, traffic patterns, availability of raw products and utility rates, all in letter. "We advise them of the avail- ability of the complete develop- ment package land, building, "inanting and leave them to deliberate the final decisoin." Marathon has men in the field n what Mr. Jaremchuk de- scribes as an aggressive mar- ffiting operation. "You must know the market oday and the instrument to erve the market is the pack- ige." Mr. Jaremchuk anticipates a ihange in consumer spending labits to different needs and wants that will result in a situa- where firms all over North America will be searching for places like Cal- garv as a future base in the West. "The next 10 years will cer- tainly be more challenging than the last 10. While it has been falling into our laps and it hasn't really taken a genius to be successful in developing here in the last decade, some imagi- native marketing will be re- quired to meet the challenge of Hie next 10." With plant costs increasing "there will have to be more effi- ciency in production to balance increased costs of reaching the market." Mr. Jareinchuk believes Cal- gary can trace some of its suc- cess to the misfortune of places like R e g i n a and Saskatoon, where a atmos- phere has developed. But this could change and probably would when Saskatch- ewan developed "a try harder philosophy and co-ordinates an agricultural industry with spe- cialists in dairy, livestock breeding, hog breeding, feed and forage, poultry or any food products which produce pro- I tein." in that house on Our Pilsner label raises many exciting questions, end while we can't answer fill of them, we em tell you about that house on the'hill.
