Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 mt UTHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, Junu M, Hoover Is Still Canada To Continue NATO Contribution WASHINGTON (toilers) A bif! question at the FBI is whether J. Edgar Hoover still will be at the helm when the agency mores into its new headquarters across the street from its present location. At present, neither seems to be out, or the building upward. Hoover, 75, seems to be as firmly in the saddle as direc- tor as he was when the agency was founded in 1924 and he became its first chief. The new FBI offices still are a gaping hole in the street six years after the plans were drawn up and tlirec years after work started. It is not expected to be finished for an- other three years. The recent resignation of the FBI's No. 3 official, Car- tha de Loach, seemed to outsi- ders an indication of high- level frustration within the agency at the apparent re- fusal "of either Hoover or his second-in-command. Associate Director Clyde Tolson, 70, to consider a graceful exit. WITH FBI 2G YEARS De Loach, 49, leaves the FBI to become a vice-presi- dent of the Pepsico Corp. He had been with the agency since 1942, apart from two years' war service in the U.S. Navy. He had been in charge ot criminal and counter-espio- nage operations, was Hoover's liaison man with the White House during the Johnson ad- ministration and played a major part in the interna- tional manhunt for James Earl Ray, convicted assassin of Dr. Martin Luther King. Sources close to the FBI say his departure was a sign that de .Loach foresaw no vacancy in the No. I spol for -some tune. But the FBI staff of thou- sands seems as firmly wed- ded to Hoover as they are to their present offices in the justice department building on Pennsylvania Avenue. Tile costs of the new build- ing have gone up considerably faster than the walls. WORK ON BASEMENT The original estimate put t.he cost of the il-storev build- ing at Work started late in 1967 and so far only two levels of the three- floor basement substructure have been completed. The cost now is estimated at making it the most expensive federal build- ing In Washington. Each New Year's Day, Hoo- ver's birthday, someone spec- ASPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP SAND and GRAVEl Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 328-2702 litotes that American's top cop is ready to call it quits. But just as regularly, the FBI denies it. Each new president that is h a v r been seven since Calvin Cooliilge ordrcd formation of the nil 40 years Hoo- vcr's reappointment. Part of the problem is thai Hoover has become so closely identified with the agency he organized that any reform of the FBI is probably impossi- ble wlu'le he is there. With death the only apparent possi- bility of removing him, none of the major reforms favored by politicians seem possible. EIGHT YEARS MAXIMUM The first reform would be to impose a time limit on the tenure of office for the direc- tor, possibly eight years. The second is to have the successor to Hoover chosen from outside the ranks of FBI agents. The third would be to split the directorship into two sec- and intellig-' ence. One would deal strictly with kidnap- pers, aircraft hijackers and other offenders of federal laws. The other would tackle the subversives and sundry political agitators whom the government might regard as dangerous. At present, they are fused into one with Hoover directing it all. J. EDGAR HOOVER How Much Longer? Korea, Qiiua Warn HONG KONG (Reuters) North Korea and China marked the 20tti anniversary of the out- break of the Korean war Thurs- day with a warning to the Uni- ted States not to provoke a new conflict in Asia. North Korea denounced an al- leged American attack on one of its border posts in the demilitar- ized zone between North and South latest in a ser- ies of incidents underlining an uneasy truce. ft said machine-guns were fired at the post Wednesday for the second straight day and warned the United States against trying to "kindle the flame of a new war in Korea." In Pyongyang, Premier Kim Il-sung of North Korea spoke to people at a rally. Tumultuous cheers greeted him as he mounted the rostrum with deposed Cambodian ruler Norodom Sihanouk and Huang Yung-sheng, Chinese army chief of general staff, the North Ko- rean Central news agency re- Price Hike For Tin Cans Okayed OTTAWA (CP) The prices and incomes commission said Thursday that price increases' announced this spring for lin cans and office duplicating equipment conformed with its price restraint criteria. It said four-per-cent increases made April 1 by American Can of Canada Ltd. and Continental Can Co. of Canada Ltd. were clearly less than increased costs of tinplate and labor, so that profit margins are being squeezed. The same was true, tire com- mission said, of price increases made March' 1 by Gestethcr (Canada) Ltd. for its duplicat- ing machines, papers, stencils and inks. The price restraint criteria were agreed to last February at a conference of 300 leaders of industry and the professions, subsequently endorsed by a fed- eral-provincial premiers confer- ence. They require price in- creases in 1970 to be kept clearly below cost increases. The commission's two reports on metal containers and dupli- cating equipment were tabled in the Commons. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 OTTAWA (CP) Canada wants to see closer political con- trol over the possible use of nu- clear weapons by NATO in times of crisis, the government said Thursday in a foreign pol- icy white paper. The policy document reaf- firmed Canada's intention to continue making a military con- tribution to the alliance. At the same time, it made clear that the government sees one of NATO's chief roles as helping to promote the search for peace in Europe. "One of the compelling rea- sons for Canada to remain n member of NATO is the impor- tant political role that NATO is playing and that Canada is playing within NATO in reduc- ing and removing tire underly- ing causes of potential says the while paper. The precise military role which Canada would play in the at any given time would depend in part on the de- mands of home defence and in part on the requirements of in- ternational peacekeeping. Account also would be taken cf the increased ability of Eu- rope to provide for its own def- ence. In the light of these con- siderations "some reduction" cf Canadian forces in Europe was being effected this year. The government w.nounccd earlier that Canadian troops in Europe would be reduced by half, lo about from "In continuing its mlitary participation in the alliance, Canada will for a further improvement in the procedures for effective political control over the alliance's military ac- tivities in times of crisis, in par- ticular with respect to Hie possi- ble use of nuclear says the policy white paper. It was for this reason that Canada recently rejoined the NATO nuclear planning group. The white paper says Canada seeks lo strengthen iU lies wilh Europe in order to create a healthier balance within the At- lantic alliance as between Eit- rope and the U.S., and to rein- force Canadian independence. "Tte United Slates is Can- ada's closest friend and ally and will remain S3." The white paper cays "tins renaissance cf the French fact in Canada" has had profound effects mi Canada's foreign rela- tions. At the same time it had created "difficulties" between Ottawa, Paris and Quebec City. Indications were Unit Bicso difficulties may become less formidable as France comes to understand boll; Canada's inter- est in promoting the French fact and also federal jurisdic- tion in international relations.
