Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE UTH8RIDGE HERALD Friday, 19, 1970 Britain's National Role High On List k -ft- i i OF ALL THE GALL-Finette, a seven-year-old pet spaniel, looks dolefully at nearly 150 gallstones she had removed in an operation. Her veterinary surgeon, Dr. Sel Cari- oto, of Ottawa, said the case was the first he had seen where so many stones were in- volved. They weighed over 10 ounces. Main Government Spending Given Approval By Commons By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons Thursday night approved the government's main spend- ing estimates of for the 1970-71 not without a few parting salvos on inflation. Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son and Corporate Affairs Min- ister Ron Basford slammed labor unions for telling the prices and incomes commission to "go to blazes" with its wage restraint policy. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield Bald the government's 307 6th SI. S. KALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 327-7152 anti-Inflation pslicy is hard- boiled and cruel. The bill authorizing the main spending estimates whipped through first and second read- ings, committee study and third reading in five minutes after MPs spent nearly an hour on di- visions on 12 separate votes. The bill now goes to the Senate. New Democrat Leader T. C. Douglas said the policies are a "snambles" and defended the refusal of organized labor to agree with the prices and in- comes commission on limiting wage demands. There were four standing votes and eight others were de- cided by yeas and nays on divi- sion. None of the recorded votes was close as the government had at least one opposition party supporting it on each oc- casion. Voting on the four divisions was 142 to to to 26 and 109 to 59. lilARKHAZAI MOTOR HOTEL AND RESTAURANT a rt i ft B 0 fi For the Prospective Bride and Groom WATCH AND CLIP THIS ADVERTISEMENT EACH FRIDAY FOR HINTS ON J4ow Plan (your DINNER JACKET FORMAL The casual trend of living is reflected in the many evening weddings where the bride is dressed dress, and the groom reflects the formality by wear- ing dinner jacket attire.

The estimates passed on the session's final afloted "opposi- tion in which the opposi- tion chooses the subject for de- bate. The battle over govern- ment anti-inflation policy was renewed in (he debate. Mr. Benson said labor is trying to wring everything it can out of the economy rather than agreeing to the prices and incomes commission wage re- straint guide. Mr. Basford said the country would be suffering less from In- flation and there would be less unemployment if labor had co- operated earlier with the com- mission. CHARGES SABOTAGE Without an "early and marked reversal" in wage and salary increases, price stability was beyond hope. He charged that Mr. Douglas had tried to undermine the prices and in- comes commission since it began work more than a year ago. Mr. Stanfield said Mr. Benson is running the Canadian econ- omy "very substantially below par." The government had ac- tually spurred i n f 1 at ion by applying restraints in the house-building industry. Higher rents and prices had resulted, driving up unemploy- ment figures, he said. Tlie government was deliber- ately creating unemployment to fight inflation. If Canadians were to support anti-inflation policies, they had to be con- vinced they were humane. Mr. Douglas said unions could not make binding contracts under the commission's re- straint guides, while business only offered "pious expressions cf hope." GOVERNMENT. SHOULD ACT He said the government should meet with business and labor to discuss anti-inflation treasures. This duty should r.ot be left to the prices and in- comes commission. The economy should also be expanded and selective controls applied to prices, profits, rents anrl all forms of income if prico.i gel. out of hand. By ARTHUR L. CAVSIION LONDON (AP) -As Edward Heath's Conservatives prepared to take over the British govern- ment, they share with Harold Wilson's Labor party the same international aims of extending British influence abroad, pro- tecting the country's interests and remaining loyal to its allies. But in style and emphasis Sir Alec Dougias-Home, H e a t h 's likely choice for foreign secre- tary, will differ from Labor's Michael Stewart on at least three major issues: weapons policy. role hi the Persian Gulf, the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. with the white-su- premacy regimes of South Af- rica and Rhodesia. In each of these sectors the Conservatives hope to strengthen Britain's national role. In the nuclear field, the Con- servative- program says Britain must retain independent control of its nuclear weapons to deter an aggressor. The Labor gov- ueen OTTAWA (CP) A new banknote containing a contem- porary portrait engraving of the Queen will begin circulating in Canada next Monday, the Bank of Canada announced today. Banks will begin distributing the new notes to their branches then and it is expected they will become available to most Cana- dians next week. The new will be followed by new notes of other denomina- tions, the bank said. The Queen's portrait also will appear on the and notes. The note will have an en- graving of Sir Wilfrid Laurier; the note will feature a por- trait of Sir John A. Macdonald. The and notes' will carry portraits of Mackenzie King and Sir Robert Borden re- spectively. The decision to replace the Queen's portrait on some bills was announced by the govern- ment some time ago. The present series of bills, first issued in 1954, continue to be with the new they wear out. At present, about notes of all denominations with total face value of about are in circulation, including of notes. Basic colors of the new bills will be the same as at present green, orange, blue, mauve, olive green and so additional colors are introducer} in parts of more elaborate engraving proc- ess to make counterfeiting more difficult. Some of the steel-engraved lines, especially the word Can- ada across the front and the de- nomination numbers at the cor- ners, are cut more deeply so that they stand1 out more promi- nently to the touch. PICTURE CHANGED The "scene portrayed on the back of the S20 bill is of the Rocky Mountains, in place at the present winter scene with evergreen trees. Designs for the backs of other denominations have not been announced. The central banlc said the new designs are the result of work in Canada and elsewhere to im- prove tiieir security against counterfeiting. Multi-color designs form the background of the main fea- tures of the bill-behind the Queen's portrait, the Canadian coat of arms, the words Canada and the words and numbers 20.

The two-man craft, piloted by veteran cosmonaut Col. An- drian Nikolayev, 40, was launched into orbit June 1. Moscow radio said the cos- monauts fully completed their detailed scientific research pro- gram. Nikolaycv's companion on the space marathon, which broke the world record for space endurance, was a civil- ian flight engineer, Vitali Sev- astyariov, 34. A preliminary examination of the two cosmonauts showed that they withstood their long trip well. They were in space for near- ly 18 days. rt OFFERING YOU THE FINEST IN CATERING FACI1ITIES LARGE OR SMALL WE CATER TO THEM ALL PHONE 328-2366 FOR RESERVATIONS 10IK AVENUE and MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE sl WORTH 50c TOWARDS ANY HAIRDRESSING June 22nd to 30th LAKEVIEW BEAUTY SALON 2638 PARKSIDE DRIVE PHONE 327-4843 pealed patterns of tiny maple leaves and figures 20 that are virtually invisible to the naked eye.

(AP) The United States Air Force today rocketed a spy satellite into space to gather a vast amount of intelligence data about Russia, China, North Viet- nam and other potential trouble spots. An AUas-Agena rocket was fired to propel the superspy to- ward a near-stationary outpost some miles above South- east Asia. The air force clamped a se- crecy label on the launching and made no advance announce- ment. Sources reported the satellite is the first of an operational ser- ies whose main job is to provide early warning of missile attack either from land or submarine. They said the 2frfoot long Agena carried a television cam- era to spot missile sites, air bases, troop movements and other military installations and infrared and x-ray sensors to detect the exhaust of a rising rocket. Firearm Control Is Urged MEDICINE HAT (CP) A coroner's jury ruled Thursday no one under 16 years should be allowed to carry a firearm without adult supervision. The ruling came during an inquest into the April 25 death of Kevin John Hunt, 13 of Medi- cine Hat, who was shot while hunting with a companion. The jury was told the 13-year- old ana Arthur Garth Teel, 14, also of Medicine Hat, had no permits for the .22-calibre rifles they were carrying at the time of the accident. No blame was attached in the accident. The jury said laws regarding the carryinff. use, an-1 conse- quences of firearms should be publicized. eminent assigned the country's lotal nuclear strike capacity to the North Atlantic Treaty Or ganization for as long as NATO lasts. SEEKS JOINT PLAN But because of doubts that "the United Slates government will risk a holocaust defending Europe against nuclear black- Heath has proposed a joint nuclear weapons program in Western Europe based on tho pooling of British and French resources, knowhow, and weap ons arrangements including tar- geting. It would require delicate ne gotiatipns both with the French and with the Americans. East of Suez, the Conserva- tives are pledged to reverse La- bor's plans to withdraw British troops from their Persian Gulf, Singapore and Malaysian bases, a withdrawal program due to be completed by the end of 1971. There have been signs that Malaysia and Singapore would like British forces to stay on, and so would the Americans But in the Persian Gulf, where a new union of nine Arab sheik doms is forming, the pointers suggest a continued British presence will not be welcome. Heath and his aides have come out emphatically for bet ter working relations with South Africa and for a new bid to come to terms with rebel Hho- desia. WOULD CANCEL BAN They have promised to cancel the Labor government's ban on the sale of weapons to South Af rica provided those weapons are needed only for external del' ence. This doubtless will touch off a storm of protest in Britain as well as among Asian and Af- rican members of the United Nations. The most immediate foreign policy task is the negotiations opening June SO on Britain's new application to join the Eu- ropean Common Market. Heath made his reputation on his handling of Britain's pre- vious attempt to enter the Euro- pean community, blocked by Charles de Gaulle's veto. Heath will extend British sup- port for American policies in In- dochina. He is on close terms with President Nixon and will visit him before the end of the year. Territorial Drinking Age Is Lowered YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) The Northwest Terri- tories Council prorogued Thurs- day after nine days of debate during which it lowered the territorial drinking age to 19 and tossed out a medical care bill because it was "too full of holes." The liquor bill, which drop- ped the drinking age by two years and implemented some administrative changes, was considered the major piece of legislation, talcing nearly five days of clause-by-clause study. The bill to introduce federal medical care insurance to the North west Territories was thrown out Friday when six of the 11 councillors voted in fa- vor of a motion by Mark Fair- brother, elected member for Mackenzie River. Mr. Fairhrother described the bill as an "unknown quan- tity" because it did not provide sufficient information about haw it would be operated and funded. Too much discretion- ary power, it was felt, was left in" the hands of commissioner Stuart M. Hodgson. laii Paisley Is Victorious (CP) Rev. Tan Paisley, militant Protestant fire- brand who condemns reforms favoring Roman Catholics in Northern Ireland, has won the North Antrim seat in Britain's Parliament from the official Un- ionist party. Paisley led his own Protestant Unionist parly in a crusade aimed against the civil rights advocates who have been press- ing demands for bigger conces- sions to the Catholic minority in Ulster. Countering the triumph of Paisley in first Northern Ireland results today from Thursday's British general election was the victory of Catholic Gerry Fitt, Republican Labor candidate in Belfast West. Pitt's seat had been consi- dered in doubt because of a slrong campaign against him by a militant Protestant represent- ing the official Unionist party there. Paisley, 44, won a solid vic- tory in a byelcction earlier this year winch sent him to the Northern Ireland Parliament at Stormont. Fitt, 44, is a longtime member of the Stormont Commons in ad- dition to lu's membership in the central Commons at Westmins- ter. He is credited with stirring up Westminster discussion of Ulster's internal aflairs long be- fore the election to the Commons in London of another champion of Catholic rights, Bernadetlo Devlin. In North Antrim, announce- ment today of Paisley's victory brought roars of approval from a crowd waving big Union Jacks and shouting Paislcyitc songs. The spellbinding minister had a majority over tlie Unionist candidate. Paisley hailed his victory as "a triumph for traditional un- ionism." DOWN TO DEFFEAT British Prime Minister Harold Wilson thanks his supporters who re-elected him in Thurs- day's British election, but his Labor Party went down to a stunning defeat at the hands of Edward Heath's Con- servatives. Canadians Not Ready TORONTO (CP) -Canadians are not ready for guaranteed annual income, Alberta's deputy welfare minister said today. Duncan Rogers told the Cana- dian Conference on Social Wel- fare that the majority of people in Alberta think welfare lias gone too far already. "People are willing to con- cede assistance for the aged, for women with children and for the disabled or unemployable. It is the so-called unemployed em- ployable persons who cause our problems."
