Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 _ THE LEIHBRIDGE HERALD Fridoy, Jutin 26, 1970 New Wheat Pact Negotiation Plans Started By UAUOLD MOKIUSON LONDON (CP) Plans arc umlcr way to negotiate a new world wheat pact at Geneva next January. This was disclosed by the -13- country International Wheat Council Thuisday as it com- pleted four days of confidential talks and established a prepara- tory group lo examine the possi- ble shape the new agreement i ommendalions to the next coun- might late. While it gave no details, it is understood the preparatory group will be made up of about 10 countries representing the major exporting and importing countries. This preparatory group, which is likely to meet outside of Britain, is to report its rec- cil meeting at the end of Octo- ber or early November. The Soviet Union and other non-member countries may then be invited to join in the negotia- tions which are to be held under the auspices of the United Na- tions. There has Been much criti- cism of the current three-year Sea Ltered Postal Strikes Continue Mounts Daily By THE CANADIAN PRESS Scattered postal strikes, heav- ily concentrated in British Col- umbia and in Ontario around the major distribution point of Toronto, occurred today as Can- ada's mail workers maintained tlieir pressure on the federal government for higher1 wages. Besides strikes in the Toronto suburban area, workers went out for the second consecutive day In the Niagara Peninsula, Owen Sound and Brantford. Walkouts also occurred in Ot- tawa, New Westminster'. Victo- ria, and many other British Col- umbia points. About 3.500 workers left tlieir jobs in the Toronto suburban area, a day after letter carriers and inside workers went on strike in the city itself. By alternating the strikes- Toronto was out Tuesday and Thursday, the outlying areas on Wednesday and employees appeared to be in- creasing pressure on what they consider one of Hie most sensi- Negro Appointed OXFORD, Hiss.

Hit in the Toronto area were post offices in the boroughs of Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke, as well as outlying towns of Milton, Mississauga, Oakville, Malton, Woodbridge, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Pick- ering, Markham, Stouffville and Ajax. Air mail service was stopped by walkouts at Toronto International Airport. In British Columbia, walkouts occurred at Surrey, Delta and Port Coquittam in the Fraser Valley, at all centres in the Okanagan Valley and through- out the Kootenays and in Victo- ria, Sidney, Duncan and Camp- bell River" on Vancouver Island. The Council of Poslal Unions delivered a letter Thursday to Prime Minister Trudeau accus- ing him of lying about issues in- volved in the dispute. The letter said: "You (Mr. Trudeau) are quoted as having said the aver- age postal worker's wage is S3.30 as hour. This te a lie." The letter' said the hourly wage scale in the post office, is from to and only of the workers are eligible for the maximum rate. It said letter carriers earn an hour after three years. Meanwhile postal workers re- turned to work today after 48- hour walkouts in Winnipeg and Edmonton. However, postal workers at several Manitoba rural points and northwestern Ontario, in- cluding Thunder Bay, still have another day to go in their 48- hour work stoppage. OFFER SUPPORT In Edmonton the Alberta Civil Service Association voted support Thursday to the Canadian Council of Postal Unions in the event of a na- tional strike. "Battle over wage guidelines is being fought for all of us by the postal said R. C. Smith, the association presi- dent. "This battle must be won." "If the federal government is successful in imposing a six- per-cent limit on its employees, the Alberta government will probably attempt to do the same thing in our next round ot negotiations in said Mr. Smith. The Civil Service Association is the bargaining agent for 000 provincial government em- ployees. international grains arrange- ments whieh expire June 30 1971, and Western bargainers liope they cau write a better pact which would include some form of production restraint in times of surpluses to preven1 furtlicr breaches of floor prices and the bitter 1969 world fighf [or markets.

Salin is the traditional favorite for brides, while lace and lace-and-tulia hnye also gained year round acceptance. Crisp taffetas and failles, lace over satin, velvet, brocade or moire may be equally as formal. And in the summer, chiffon, jersey, marquisette, net, rnousseline de soie or em- broidered organdy certainly are more camfortabls and look dainty and fresh.

They also imperilled an impor- tant supply depot at Long Vek, 20 miles north of Phnom Penh, and for the first time threatened Oudong, site of ancient Buddhist monasteries and tombs 20 miles northwest of the Cambodian capital. The attacks marked a contin- uance of the pressure which Cambodian military officials say has Phnom Penh as the ulti- mate objective. Meanwhile, the United States command in Saigon announced that a U.S. Navy escort plane attacked gun positions deep in- side North Vietnam Thursday after the guns fired on a recon- naissance aircraft the navy plane was escorting. The attacks 15 miles north- west of the coastal city of Vinh and about 155 miles northwest of the demilitarized zone was the first such reported since May 25. Since the U.S. bombing halt over North Vietnam on Nov. 1, 1968, U.S. planes have continued to fly reconnaissance missions over the North with armed es- corts.

Henry Ruste, Alberta agri- culture minister, said time is required to assess the findings of a provincial governmen delegation which visited the area Tuesday and "a lot more work" will be required before anything is done. Hay Williston, British Colum- bia lands and forests minister, rejected the findings of a spe- cial 13 member Alberta com- mittee which placed the blame on the Bennett Dam in North- eastern B.C. and said lack of moisture for the last few years was to blame. Peter Lougheed, Alberta Pro- gressive Conservative party leader, said "what a snow hi referring to Mr. Ruste's comments. "We knew that (his had been developing for some he said, adding that his party had raised the matter in the legis lature in April, 1969.

The major Issue, he said, Is the failure of the provin cial government to assure proper protection of our down steam rights. we ignora our downstream rights."

Juvenile Detention Home To Test New Trust Policy CALGARY (CP) The ju- venile detention home will be- come an open institution July 1 with doors to main dormitories unlocked. The home is for boys under 16 and girls under 18 who are on remand from juvenile court or who have been charged, but who have not appeared in court. Social Supervisor Sam Blake- ly said Thursday the new pol- icy is being tried "to build a philosophy of greater trust" among those in the home. "We want to test the ability of the children to accept re- sponsibility, to see how they handle freedom." Under the present system, the outside door to the centre is locked at all times and dor- mitories are locked at night. Under the proposed system, the outside door will be open during the day and dormitory doors will always remain un- locked. Mr. Blakely said not all the juveniles will be granted the added freedom. Those considered security risks by juvenile court judges and those facing seri o u s charges will remain in restrict- ed facilities. The open door policy has been tried at detention homes in several United States cities, Mr. Blakely said, and has been considered successful. After July 1, boys and girls will share eating and studying facilities also, but will retain separate dormitories, he said. The centre is designed for 14 boys and 14 girls, he said, but it is "usually full and some- times overfull."

Canada has been reached from which Ca- nadians may soon be unable to determine the country's future, former Alberta Premier E. C. Manning said Thursday. Mr. Manning, now president of M and M Consultants Ltd., told delegates to the Canadian Electrical Association annual meeting all would suffer un- less some trends in society are controlled within this decade. Concern for the environment has "mushroomed" into a major social and economic problem that must be solved before all mankind is "left gasping for breath." Financial inflation is being spurred by individuals and cor- porations who "insist on taking more out of the economy than there is in it." He told the delegates the problems could not be solved in executive board rooms but must be attacked through a partnership with all segments of society. He suggested increased co- operation between private and public sectors, between labor and management to ensure workers a satisfactory portion of profits from increased pro- ductivity, between intellectual idealists and business enter- pr'eneurs, between young and old people and among the prov- inces and with other nations. unplanned an offi- cial investigation has con- cluded. The report of Judge E. J. C. Stewart, the commissioner for Iho inquiry, was tabled in Hie Commons Thursday by Justice Minister John Turner. Mr. Turner said the govern- ment was making no comment on the report at this time be- cause ministers were still studying it. The commission of inquiry held that the Jan. 23 return of the three Americans Charles' Allen Leonard, 18, Earl Hock- ett, 21, and John Kreeger, 22 from Huntingdon, B.C., mixture of coincidence, _ mis- understanding and confusion. Judge Stewart said: "The possibility of any com- bination ot events similar to those outlined in this report ever recurring to result in similar or other unlawful act is so remote that it need not be considered." ACTED IN GOOD FAITH The report said the two RCMP constables who escorted the three youths back across the border were "victims of circumstances." These two H. H. Stade and W. L.. Thibault had acted in goad faith under the mistaken impression they were carrying out a lawful order of K. A. Smith, Canadian immigration official at Huntingdon. For his part, Mr. Smith acted under the mistaken impression that the deserters were under the "care" or "direction" of the RCMP. Judge Stewart said Mr. Smith must be held responsible more than anyone else involved for the "illegal" return of the three Americans'. Mr. Smith had failed to ob- serve the significance of what was going on at Huntingdon. He had taken an exceptionally narrow approach to his duties and had an unreasonable re- luctance to question the ac- tions of the RCMP.
