Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SWINGING BRIDGE? The flood-swollen Smoky River washed out Ihe -fill from beneath the Northern Alberla Railways line near Walino in northeastern Alberta last week, leaving ties and rail suspended in mid-air. Crews are working at the scene in an attempt to restore service on the line which primarily handles frieghr. Nixon hopes bombers will win war By'WILLIAM MILLINSIIIP (London Observer Service) pattern now emerging in American military and political action against North Vietnam suggests that the Nixon administration is hoping to bomb a physically and diplomatically-isolated ad- versary to a peace settlement. Critics, pointing to the [allure o! the Johnson administration to achieve that result with a sustained air offensive, argue that simply more of the same will not end the war. They may well he proved right. But it must be noted that the present use of U.S. air power differs in a number of significant ways from Operation Rolling Thun- der In the Johnson days, and that the political and diploma- tic context has also changed. Some important restraints imposed by Lyndon Johnson have been removed. Individua' targets are no longer selectee at the highest level in Wash Ington. It seems that in recenl veeks U.S. air commanders have been given much greater reedom to hit military and in- dustrial objectives, provided hey respect general guidelines. A major military restraint was liscarded when President Nix- on ordered the mining of North Vietnamese ports, a step John- son had always refused to lake to cut off North Vietnam's flow of supplies. TECHNIQUES CHANGED The techniques of air attacks have also changed. Giant, eight- engined B-52 jets, each able to carry up to 30 Ions of high ex- plosive, have been sent to "car- pet bomb" targets in North Vietnam, including the areas of Hanoi and Haiphong. American pilots also appear lo havo greally improved Ihe accuracy er, will quickly criticize the government which has 'trapped itself in a lot of things by going too fast with certain lypes of legislation and social measures." But he's not interested in criticism. His main idea is to have a proper economic cli- mate in which to be able to conduct business and to grow. "And we have to grow. Tlus is a very important point at the present Ume because our unemployment and be- cause there are young people coming on the labor market in the next five or six years. "You can't look after the situation with a static econ- omy." Mr. German, 55 and a broadshouldered bulldog of a man, said in an interview the chamber has created more in- terest and more concern in the government for "what businesses are "I think the government now is trying to consult with us, to feel out tilings, instead of doing things that cause problems. One of the central problems of the economy, he said, is that productivity lags behind wages and price levels, creat- ing a basic imbalance and threatening Eo price some Ca- nadian products out of export markets. Another problem was a growing economic disparity witlun the labor force itself. He said workers represent- ed by powerful unions in in- dustries which can pass in- creased costs on to the con- sumer keep widening the dol- lar gap between themselves and other workers. "In the next five years we are going to have a great deal of difficulty adjusting wage rales between people and this will lead to serious social problems. "There is going to be a struggle by the more powerful unions to get a bigger share of the pie and a struggle by industry to make technical improvements and increase profits in order to attract cap- ital. '.'The people at the bottom of the economic heap are the ones who will suffer most in this struggle." CONTKOLS MAY COME Canadians seemed to have forgotten that in the long run they couldn't take more out of the economy that they put in. A guaranteed annual in- come for Canadians is a strong political possibility, he said, but it must be preceded by increases in productivity. He said unless Prime Minis- ter Trudeau can bring a lot of things under control "he's going to have more serious problems next year." "Wage and price controls will be very expensive for our economy lo administer, hut if things get out of control we may not have too much voice." He said Canada is entering a difficult period because the will he faced with some negotiations this year with a large number of civil servants. "If the government doesn't handle this the right way and we get a large increase in wage rates, then we're going to have a lot of ticularly in 1973."
