Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta June 21, 197) THI LETHIRIDOI HMAID Oldest unbroken relations in history Britain and Portugal to celebrate alliance LONDON (CP) Britain and Portugal this month celebrate the oldest unbroken alliance in history, but a recent incident In- volving the Duke of Edinburgh illustrates that although it has survivel 600 years, it is at times a shaky friendship. Both British and Portuguese spokesmen have sought to play down published reports that pressure was brought on the Opponent not real Grit candidate has problem Plan ad complaint centre TORONTO (CP) The Ad- pertising Standards Council of Canada says it mil set up a re- gional centre in Winnipeg by {September to handle complaints about advertising from con- sumers in Western Canada. Tha council's head office in Toronto now receives com- plaints on English-language ad- vertising from across the coun- try. The Winnipeg branch -will be the first regional centre outside Toronto, besides the French-lan- guage council in Montreal The Canadian Advertising Ad- visory Board, parent body of the council, said the Winnipeg branch will be the first of a number of regional branches across Canada. Masked worker Appearing somewhat like an invader from outer space, Edmonton street cleaner Henry Soltysiak city streets protect- ed by a filter mask to en- sure he doesn't breathe what the machine raises. WINNIPEG (CP) "M> toughest confessed a Liberal candidate trying to un seat an NDP member in Mani toba's June 28 general election "is that the man on the ballo pap s isn't my real opponent. His comment reflects the de sign of the government's cam paign: defence of its four-yea record in office, modest prom ises for the future and over riding emphasis on its greates single asset, the obvious per sonal popularity of Premier B Schreyer. Both Conservatives, whc formed the official opposition in the last legislature, and Liber als are seeking not only to woo voters away from the NDP, bu also to convince them that their party is the only alternative. Conservative Leader Sidney Spivak has come out with barrage of policy statements and has travelled extensively in northern Manitoba in attempts to broaden the party's tradi- tional rural Ease. Liberal Leader Izzy Asper has focussed his campaign on a few key issues and has concen- trated most of his attention on Winnipeg and southern Mani- toba. SLOGANS DEFINE STANDS All parties have relied extensively on advertising, but the NDP and Liberals appear to have come up with election slo- gans that best reflect the thrust of their campaigns. "Keep your government urge ads for the NDP, which constantly refer to the party's candidates as Schreyer New Democrats. The Liberals have seized on the slogan "self control, not state control." Of all the party leaders, Mr. Schreyer has been the most vis- ible during the campaign. He has travelled throughout the province in hopes of hanging on to northern seats and making inroads into predominately Con- servative southern rural rid- ings. Mr. Spivak has hopes of cut- ting into NDP strength in the north and in Winnipeg. The Conservative leader is empha- sizing party over party leader and counters NDP tactics by arguing that a vote for Mr Schreyer is a vote for "the whole NDP bunch."

PHONE 328-4595 Meanwhile, Mr. Asper seeks to rebuild party strength from the last election, when Liberal fortunes fell to their lowest depths in recent years. He says party standings in the last legislature are mean- ingless now that the house is dissolved, and is seeking to con- Mickeners purchase small car OTTAWA (CP) Next time you're out for a Sunday drive in the Ottawa area and "stop at a red light, don't be surprised if the man sitting in the Volkswagen beside you is Gov.-Gen. Boland Michener. The Micheners have pur- chased a beige Volkswagen in anticipation of the expiry of the Governor-General's term of office next November. A Government House spokesman said today that nothing is definite but the Micheners are planning ahead for possible retirement. Last week, Mr. Michener purchased a small home in the village of Rockcliffe. Mr. Michener, 73, was named Governor-General in 1967 for a five year term. The term has been extended twice. As for the car, the spokes- man says, it will be used mainly by Mrs. Michener. "She has often driven them in the he said.

At dissolution the NDP held 29 seats in the 57-member legis- lature, including one minister elected as a Liberal in 1969. There were 20 Conservatives, four Liberals, one Social Credit and two independents who were elected as NDP members. One seat was vacant. Mr. Asper has been more vis- ible than Mr. Spivak and has concentrated on the grass roots, joining Liberal candidates out- side factories and on door-to- dpor forays. He has even taken his pitch into Winnipeg bever- age rooms during the noon-hour rush, NDP LEADS POLLS Both NDP and Conservative polls show the New Democrats in front, although the other par- ties argue that the non-socialist majorities of past elections prove the NDP can be beaten. The NDP got 38 per cent of the popular vote four years ago. Supporting this contention is the Group .for Good Govern- ment, seeking t ohanel the non-socialist vote behind single candidates in 19 of the prov- ince's 57 ridings. The GGG has promised to name this week the non-NDP candidates its polls show have the best chance of winning. Conservatives have had little to say about the group, but Mr. Asper and several other Liberal candidates have expressed con- cern that the GG may be little more than a Conservative ploy. At the same time, New Demo- crats appear confident that sup- port for their work in govern- ment and their party leader will overcome any efforts at uniting the voters behind either of the other two parties, which could have a backlash effect to the NDP's benefit Queen's husband to eliminate certain remarks during a recent official visit to Portugal. Other reports said it was the duke who objected to references in a speech written for him by the British foreign office that might be interpreted as mildly critical of Portugal's colonial policy in Africa. Whatever the case, there is broad speculation that the in- cident could cloud the recipro- cal visit to Britain of Prime Minister Marcello Caetano next mouth. BRITAIN FAVORED Caetano has already reacted in a luke-warm manner to the anniversary observations, say- ing in a message that in gen- eral the alliance has "been more favorable to Britain than to Portugal." This was in sharp contrast to the enthusiastic statement of British Prime Minister Heath who talked of the "close and en- during friendship" between the two countries. The Treaty of tory records no other unbroken alliance of such signed June 16, 1373, by King Edward III and King Fernando I and Queen Leonor of Portugal and has since been renewed and reinforced seven times. It has been invoked only twice this both oc- casions by Britain. In 1915, Brit- ain requested Portugal to seize German ships. Germany de- clared war on Portugal and Portuguese troops subsequently were sent to the western front. In 1943, when Atlantic convoys were threatened by German submarines, Portugal bowed to British pressure to allow the al- lies to use the Azores as naval and air bases. PORTUGAL REJECTED But in 1961 when India seized Goa, Britain refused to assist her oldest ally on grounds she could not become hostile to fellow member of the mon wealth. Observers suggest that, given the modern history of tin treaty, Portuguese officials an not anxious to draw public at- tention to what they consider has been a poor deal for Portu- gal. They also are fearful that some quarters, particularly left- leaning groups in Britain, will take the occasion of the ani- versary to criticize Portugal! Colonial policy in Africa. Indeed, spokesmen for End the Alliance Campaign in London have already suggested the Portuguese are trying to use the anniversary to win in- creased British support for this policy. Lord Gifford, campaign chair- man, said recently it was de- plorable that Britain offers friendship "to a power that per- petuates dictatorship at homt and white minority rule in Af- rica." PHILIP WATCHED It is because of this atmos- phere that all concerned were extremely sensitive over Prince Philip's speech. Unconfirmed reports said the offending passage removed had mentioned "differences in out- look on colonial and re- ferred to the process whereby a dozen former British colonies in Africa have achieved full self- government and independence. Although even such a mild re- mark might have offended the Portuguese who for 10 years have been fighting to hold on to African territories, some ob- servers suggest it would have served to strengthen Britain's standing with the more than 40 b1" ctptes of Africa. Particularly so since the speech was scheduled only a few days before the state visit to Britain of General Ya- kubu Gowon, the Nigerian gov- ernment leader.
