Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta FORECAST HIGH WEDNESDAY 75. The lethbticUje Herald VOL. LXV 101 LETHBR1DGE, ALBERTA, TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 20 PAGES China-U.S. million project begin new discussions By JOHN BURNS FP Publications PEKING Henry Kissinger'arrived here Monday night for a new round of talks with Chinese leaders, only hours after the People's Daily had warned anew of the danger of war with the imperialist powers, mean- ing the United States and the Soviet Union. Mr. Kissinger, President Richard Nixon's adviser [or national security affairs, began his fourth visit lo Cnina with a quiet greeting at Peking ail-port from a party that included the foreign minister, Chi Peng-fei, and the senior vice foreign minister, Chiao Kuan-hua. The presidential jet which carried the American party from Washington louched down just before sun- set, at local time. A 21-car motorcade then carried llic Americans and their hosls on Ihe 23-mile drive across the city to the. stale guest house where they are to be lodged during their four-day stay. Just over an hour after the parly's arrival at the guest house, a fleet of Red Flags pulled up outside the great hall of the people, indicating that the lalks wilh Ciu'nese Premier Chou En-lai may have begun im- mediately. Foreign ministry officials were unable to give any details of the party's movements but the drill for past Kissinger visits indicated that the presidential adviser may have bad an immediate dinner engagement with the premier. Press silent Since announcing the visit last week the Chinese press has fallen silent on the matter. But observers doubted that the liming of the article in the People's Daily was entirely coincidental. The article, spread across the lop the paper's front page, took Ihe form of an edilorial urging a strengthening of Ihe country's five-million-man militia. It commemorated a call for intensified milita training issued-by Chairman Mao Tse-tung exactly 10 years ago. A reprint from the Liberation Army Daily, organ o( the Chinese armed forces, the edilorial stressed the im- portance of understanding the aggressive nature of im- perialism and social imperialism, the names by which the Chinese press frequently refers to the U.S. and the Soviet Union. "They are even today continuing as usual to build up armaments and make wor preparations, fighting for positions of slrength, committing aggression and ton- the editorial said. "We have to prepare completely against lha possi- bility that they will start a new aggressive war." The editorial went on to lay special stress on the need to build up the militia forces along China's borders, This could be taken as a reference to Peking's long-smouldering border dispute with the Soviet Union or to American actions in Vietnam, one of the topics Mr. Kissinger is here lo discuss. Security threat Last week the Chinese foreign ministry declarer] that it considered the extension of U.S. bombing to targets close lo Ihe Chinese border as a threat to Chinese security. It was the first tune the Chinese had mentioned their seairily in connection wilh the Vietnam war since the U.S. backed thrust into Laos 16 months ago. The editorial's reference to conspiring appeared lo be a veiled reference to the recent summit talks be- tween the U.S. and the Soviet Union in Moscow, an- other topic Mr. Kissinger may wish to discuss with the Chinese leaders. China has so far made no direct comment of any kind on. the Moscow meeting but observers here con- sider it almosl cerlain lhat the Chinese leaders have certain apprehensions aboul the meeting. It may be that Mr. Kissinger's principal purpose in coming here is to allay such apprehensions. Other topics certain to be covered in the talks are Japan and the prospects for further normalization of relations between the U.S. and China. Under this head- ing Mr. Kissinger is likely lo press for a broadening of exchanges in Ihe fields of sports, journalism and trade. Make it clear New library plans okayed Airports back lo normal By THE CANADIAN PRESS Major Canadian airports roared back lo life today as air- lines scheduled extra flights to accommodate travellers grounded by the 21-hour pilots' strike for more stringent anti-hi- jacking measures. The worldwide pilots's strike ended at 2 a.m. EOT today and airports, as quiet as libraries since the strike began at 2 a.m. Monday, resumed business on en increased scale. An Air Canada official in To- ronto said that the publicly- owned airline expected to carry about passengers throughout Canada today com- pared with the usual for this time of year. He said an additional seats on 19 extra flights had been added to serve persons forced to delay trips by a day because of the strike. The official said a number of passengers had been stranded in Europe, but had been prov- ided with accommodation by Air Canada until flights re- sumed. CP Air, which normally has 100 flights scheduled, also was planning some extra flights to ease the backlog of pasengers. Charles Simpson, president of the Canadian Air Line Pilots Association, called the protest "very successful." By HICHARD BUHKJ! Herald Staff Writer The plans for the new library were unanimously endorsed by city council Monday as au- thority was given the city to borrow an additional for construction of the mil- lion facility. Money for furnishing the li- brary was not approved, how- ever. The library board in- stead will be asked to use its reserves and to seek donations from the community for the furnishings. The building will cost Ihe lax- payers just under one mill per year for 20 years. Alderman Vera Ferguson, who signed the approval mo- tion, said the library "could ba the best and only monument this council will build." DISAPPOINTED Although Aid. Ferguson was disappointed the cost could not be kept within the original estimale, she said, "I don't know where any of us could cut anything from lha plans to decrease the cost." She said the library board did its job and showed leader- ship "something this council should exhibit more often." Aldermen Cam Barnes, Steve Kotch and Bill Kergan were also "annoyed" that the cost ex- ceeded the budget. Aid. Kotch said he "hopes they keep it down to the 000" and don't go another 000 over the new budget. The aldermen acceded to Aid. Ferguson's request that council "whole-heartedly" ap- proved the additional funds. PLAN' Mayor Andy Anderson said the city can "quite easily" af- ford the library. He called the arcliitect's (R p n i n s Mitchell Watson) submission "a splen- did plan." Council shouldn't be too con- cerned with granting the extra funds, he said. He referred to the secondary sewage treat- ment plan coming in costing considerably higher than the budget and receiving council approval. The plans for Ihe library, to be built on the northeast cor- ner of the old Central School property, call for a two-storey structure containing feet of floor area. Central School will be demol- ished, likely this summer, to make way for the library. The additional money is to be borrowed this year. Expense for the landscaping, estimated at will be considered in the 1973 budget. The city finance director was instructed to apply to the de- partment of national revenuo to have donalions of furnish- ings qualify as tax deductions for the donators. Tenders will be called by ths fall. Lougheed begins hectic schedule 87 people killed iii landslides NEW YORK (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta began busy schedule of meetings with government and financial leaders to dis- cuss investment opporlunilies in his province. Lougheed talked briefly wilh Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York and Ihen was rushed to a luncheon at a private club in the downtwon financial di- trict where he spoke to mem- bers of the local business com- munity.

Nobody was hurt at Dunnamanagh, County Tyrone. benefit taxpayers, miners Family doctor trend returning From the start of the visit the Cliiiieso made il clear that it will be handled in as discreet a fashion as Mr. Kissinger's previous visits. The presidential jet, landing in the dusk of a perfect early-summer evening, taxied to a halt half a rnile away from waiting journalists on the balcony of the airport terminal. Flashbulbs popped as the Americans came down the ramp to shake hands with the Chinese. Then tho principals climbed inlo five of Ihe stately Red Flag limousines, sellling down behind lace curtains for the drive into the city. Security along the road was less tight tlian il has been on previous occasions, but there were still police- men posted at frequent intervals all along the way. In Tien At-mcn, in Ihe heart of the city, thousands of strollers paused for a moment to stare as the motor- cade rushed past on its way to Jade Abyss Pool Prak, site of Ihe guest house where Mr. Nixon himself stayed only four months ago. On a strictly domestic note, observers noted that the military editorial renewed the atlacks on China's form- er president, Liu Shao-chi, "and oilier political swind- lers of that a formula which appears to cover the fallen defence minister, Lin Piao. The editorial said that the former president and hig allies made a pretence of strengthening the militia but didn't. The boosting of militia strength was one of the principal aims set forth by Lin during his tenure in the defence portfolio.

He said 126 of the 240 students in Maryland's last two classes are choosing to be family physi- cians. and the premier did not wish to talk to reporters.

Many of the collective agree- ments between the mines and unions contain a clause that wage negotiations can take place if the price of gold rises. Il's still too early to say if tho high price for gold is here lo slay for any length of time. Part of Ibe price rise is sheer speculation; but another factor is the growing industrial use of gold. An official of the Emergency Gold Muling Assistance act said Monday that he doubted whether the higher price would mean the reopening of several mines. Proposed ban oil whale hunting may fizzle out LONDON (CP) That pro- posed 10-year, worldwide ban on the commercial whale hunt, a highlight of Ihe Stockholm envi- ronment conference, is likely to fizzle when the international whaling commission meets next xveek. Well-placed British officials who will be participating in iV.e five-day annual meeting open- ing Monday suggest any al- lempls to ram through a mora- torium may result in Ihe walk- out of Japan and the Soviet Union from the 14-country com- mission. In what unenthusiastic Cana- dian reprcsenlatives described as a great out- cry against the whale hunt de- veloped at the Iwo-weck United Nations environment conference which ended at Stockholm last Friday. The result was a conferenca recommendation lliat commer- cial whaling be banned for 10 years lo prevent further deple- tion of that mammal. But there are whales and whales, the British experts sug- gest, and not all whales are in trouble. The commission main- tains tolal protection for tho blue, grey and humpback and right varieties but allows some hunting of the sei and fin. All these are in the baleen family of whales, caught for their meal. More extensive bunting is al- lowed for the toothed sperm whale, caught mainly for ils oil, which goes into industry. Most of the whale hunt takes place in the Antarctic and North Pacific will] Japan, the Soviet Union and Norway undertaking long whaling expedilions. Norway's interest is reported waning. A number of other countries, including Canada, do some whaling, setting out from coastal stalions and hunting in nearby waters. Environment Minister Jack Davis estimaled at Stockholm that if the morato- rium is made effective, some Canadian fishermen, especially in the Maritime region, might lose about million a year in part-time earnings. Canada is more inclined to support whaling restrictions based on a harvest which docs not deplete stocks of the more plentiful varieties. Britain is re- ported ready to support that ap- proach. House, raised the issue with a motion condemning the Liberal government for having failed to produce a comprehensive pro- gram lo provide jobs for Ihe graduates streaming out of Ca- nadian schools and universities. The motion, which under House rules served only as a ve- hicle for debate and did not come to a vote, drew support from both the Conservative and Social Credit parties. Government spokesmen used much the same response as they have against previous op- position allacks on the unem- ployment issue. MACKASEY REPLIES Manpower Minister B r y c a Mackasey, the only minister to enter the debate, recited a list of program statistics which hs said demons brated government concern aboul unemployment among the young, and replied to claims that the government is callous and indifferent to the problem. He also said Ihe posl-war baby boom, resulting now in large numbers of young people entering the labor force, is a major factor in the picture. While the government is not using this as an excuse, tho growth in the labor force he- cause of young people lias been greater in Canada than in any other Industrialized society. But Mr. Nyslrom said Statis- lics Canada figures for May showed Canadians look- ing for or almost half of them under the age of He accused tha government of adopting a piecemeal, stopgap approach to unemployment.
