The Lethbridge Herald CALGARY (CP) The igloo slapping concept is a big hit willi customers and is helping to revolutionize the air cargo in- dustry. Igloos are spun-glass shells i of the main reasons tor ttie shaped to fit tlie bellies: of jet- liners or the fuselages of all- cai'go DC-Os. The use of Ihe system is one Chileans face tough winter 0 9 9 ft By WILLIAM F. NICHOLSON SANTIAGO CAP) Tlie drizzling rains that mark win- ter in Chile have hegun and the jagged peaks of Ihe Andes that jut into the greasy, grey sky above Santiago arc crusted with new snow. This winter promises to be a difficult one for Cliileans. In a middle-class suburb, a pudgy businessman visits a foreign resident on the block and asks him to join a neigh- borhood defence committee. Two shanty towns organized liy extreme leftists have sprung up on vacant lots nearby; he says there are ru- mors, that the dwellers in the wooden shacks will soon move to occupy the neighborhood houses. "Let's muses a capital night spot owner with right- whig connections to a friend as he changes records in his cramped sound booth-office. He is discussing preparations by a rightist group against leftists. "In this neighborhood we have about 600 persons ready." With arms? He nods yes. HAS HEAVY GUARDS Downtown, President Salva- dor Allcnde is running his left-wing Popular Unity coali- tion government from the heavily-guarded Moneda pres- idential palace. Its inner pa- tios with gurgling fountain and manicured gardens are out of bounds to the public. Because of fears for the president's safely, the jack- booted police guards question all visitors. Other carabine- ros, toting Belgian automatic rifles, guard doors and balco- j Dies. Outside the presidential office lounge a group of youths handpicked by AUende as his bodyguards. Outside the palace sits a dark-green bus for riot police. The tourist guide book view of Chile, a South American country with a tradition of easy-going tolerance for widely varying political views, has been largely re- placed over the last year with an atmosphere of uneasiness and frustration. NO MEAT PIES "The Popular Units1 revolu- tion of eat pies and wine has remarked Rafael Moreno, a senator be- longing to the Christian Dem- ocratic party, the largest op- position group in tlie country, "The wine has soured and tha meat for the pies can't be found anywhere." When he began his six-year term in November, 1970, Al- lende, a Marxist and Socialist, pledged sweeping economic and political changes at "low social cost" to lead Chile "down the road to socialism." His coalition includes Com- munists and Socialists. There have been significant develop- ments since it came to power. The AUende government na- tionalized Chile's biggest cop- per mines last July. The North American companies operating the mines have re- ceived no compensation. The issue of compensation has yet to be decided finally by a Chilean tribunal but the out- look is not optimistic for the companies. TAKE OVER FIRMS Chile's iron and nitrate in- dustries also have been na- tionalized. Fourteen private banks have been transferred to stale control through buy-out agree- ments or purchases of major- ity shares of stock. Ten pri- vate industries have been taken over and 50 others are under "temporary" control through interventions or re- quisitions because of alleged production or labor problems. Under an ambitious agrar- ian reform program, large farms totalling 2Vz mil- lion hectares have been expro- priated for conversion into "agrarian reform centres." A hectare is about 2te acres. Medium and small farms have generally been left alone by the government. The government also redis- tributed income in favor of the lower classes by authoriz- ing wage increases during 1971 ranging from 40 to 60 per cent. It also increased the amount of printed money in circulation by 173 per cent. JOBLESS FELL With a subsequent dramatic Increase in consumer de- mand, domestic production rose.8'.i per cent In 1D71 and unemployment fell to 3.9 per cent at the end of 1871 from 7.2 per cent in late 1870. But the economic boom, al- though successful on a short- term basis, has begun to fal- ter. AUende, claiming his gov- ernment has a SS.S-billion for- eign debt burden inherited from previous governments, has sought to renegotiate its debts. Chile has obtained a breathing space on the pay- ment of million which will be deferred until after 1075. Domestic agricultural pro- duction has been disrupted by the expropriations as well as hundreds of seizures of pri- vate farms by peasants organ- ized by extreme leftists who believe all farmlands must come under stale control. Many farmers, threatened by either state or extremist take- over, have stopped working. ECONOMY HAMPERED Incompetence and political featherbedding by govern- ment functionaries have also hampered tlie economic situa- tion. Labor problems caused in part by dissatisfaction with state-appointed supervisors have also hit production at the nationalized copper mines which normally account for some million a year in foreign exchange. Production problems at the mines mean fewer dollars lor Chile. This coupled with gov- ernment estimates that it wil have to import million worth of food this year, com- pared with million 1871, has forced the country to tighten its belt.' Some imported items are disappearing from store shelves, including automotive spare parts, razor blades am some medicines. ipid growth in air cargo opera- PRESERVE MONUMENTS PARIS (AP) Japan has iledged over six years or the preservation of a com- of Buddhist monuments at Borobitdur, Indonesia, the United N a t i o n a Scientific and Cultural Organi- CHANGED HACK CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) A report to Parliament said 54 changes in official race classification were granted out of ill appeals by citizens during 1971. South Africans are regis- tered as white, black, Asian or colored. The latter is the deslg- ons of Canada's airlines in re- ent years, says an' Air Canada wkesman. A. D. Russell of Vancouver aid keeping ground handling at minimum, they are simply lid aboard and reduce trans- lortation costs and time. "We're getting to the stage ow where we can give the cus- >mer the Mr. Rus ell, regional cargo manager in 'ancouver for All' Canada, said "He arranges his commodi cs in the igloo as he wants lem. We're already doing this with a Winnipeg mail-order ouse and they think it's great.' 1EADY MARKET H. R. Ernst, the company's argo manager in Calgary, said household moving companies laven't taken advantage of thi ioncept, but when they do, they will find a ready market in Ca! gary. "A lot of oil company execu ivcs here take their familie. them when they go on tern wrary assignment to places ike the Middle East. "They are allowed to take household effects, and contain- ers would be ideal for this type of job, with the igloo going straight to the door of the Mid- dle East quarters. "Breakage, pilferage and in- surance elimi- nated." Air Canada is discussing the advantages of igloos with mov- ing companies, Mr. Russell said. Pacific Western Airlines has increased cargo operations by use of igloos because it also uses mixed-configuration air- craft and all-cargo planes which lend themselves to the sheltered pallet idea. CP Air, which only carries freight below deck, is the only major airline in Western Can- ada that doesn't use the con- cept. Al Campbell, PWA's assistant to the vice-president of northern operations, said the containers have streamlined the company's cargo operation. "We sometimes use the Boeing 737 as a pure freighter and we can load up five igloos in 20 minutes while the aircraft is being serviced." zalion announced. 'try.
