Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta SCATTERED FORECAST HIGH TUESDAY 70 VOL. LXIII No. 107 LETHBR1DGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, JUNK 29, 1970 ICE NOT OVEK 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 18 PAGES Troops Ordered To TRUDEAU They can lump it' Ruling To Be Re-Elected TORONTO (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau told Canadians Sunday night his government is doing all it can to solve the problems of inflation and regional disparities, and that if they are dissatisfied they can elect another government. "I'm not really trying to govern in order to be re-elected if the Canadian people don't like it. you know they can lump he said. "I want people to believe the government when it says that it's going to fight this thing to the finish either of inflation or of the government." The prime minister was answering criticisms from journalists1 and academics across Canada in a series of two-way discussions shown on the CTV program W5. Economic issues dominated the discussions, with passing reference to separatism in Quebec, abortion legislation and narcotics. Vancouver journalist and economist Pat Carney wanted to know what action the prime minister would take next winter should there be increased unemploy- ment and still-rising costs. Sees Glint Of Hope Mr. Trudeau said there is some cause for optimism in the slight decrease in the cost-of-living index for May, and in indications that the Canadian Labor Con- gress is ready to co-operate with government and busi- ness in fighting inflation. He reiterated previous statements that wage and price controls would be a last resort, and indicated there are other, less drastic alternatives such as a tax on surplus earnings. Toronto author Farley Mowat suggested that gov- ernment policy is to exploit, rather than develop, the Canadian North and to force farmers and fishermen in other undeveloped areas into the big cities. Mr. Trudeau agreed there is an element of exploita- tion in the government's northern policies, but added there also is a move toward development through moving administration of northern affairs to Uie North from Ottawa. On Mi-. Mowat's second point, the prime minister said Ottawa is not interested in moving people from undeveloped areas to the cities but to growth areas within their own province. Kingsley Brown, of St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, N.S., charged Ottawa with failing to consult the people on its development programs for the Man- times. Provinces Want Action Mr. Trudeau admitted this, but placed the blame on the provincial governments. The provinces want fast action because they are faced with immediate problems of unemployment, he said. The provinces want a program "without this long, involved process of consultation at the grass roots he said. Mr. Trudeau rejected a suggestion by Evelyn Dumas, an associate editor at the Montreal Star, that Ottawa's development grants went to well-established companies, many of them foreign-owned, at the es- pcnse of small firms in Quebec. The grants go lo companies willing and able to provide jobs in depressed areas, and other government grant and loan programs are available to small firms, the prime minister said. Harold Chorncy, a graduate student at fhe Univer- sity of Manitoba, charged ths government is rejecting United States values on tha one hand, but accepting U.S. influence by allowing American investment. Mr. 'lYudoau replied thai, steps arc being taken to ensure Canadian control of Canadian resources, but that U.S. investment ;iud the subsequent cultural im- part cannot bo changed overnight. For the second time in a two- week period, Lethbridge will have to do without mail de- livery today. At midnight Sunday, in line with rotating strikes across the nation, postal workers in the Lethbridge area walked off Uie job for :i 24 hour period. Pick- et lines formed outside the post office and will continue round- the-clock picketing throughout the protest. The public lobby of the post office will remain closed, but the lock box lobby will be open during the period. Postal officials state that there will be a delivery Tuss- day provided the strike docs not continue. However, Wed- nesday, July 1 is a federal holi- day and the post office will re- main closed and there will not be a mail delivery. Other Alberta centres affect- ed by today's walkout are Med- icine Hat, Red Deer and Cal- gary. B.C. ALSO HIT In British Columbia out- side Vancouver, workers at Fernic, Cranbrook, Crestoit ami Kimberlcy were also scheduled to stay off the job. Also hit was Toronto Interna-, tional Airport, where all air de- livety letters were frozen as 44 postal workers walked out, shutting off airmail service to Vancouver, Winnipeg and Montreal. Post offices in Vancouver and Toronto already were hard pressed to clear huge backlogs of mail which accum- ulated during 24 hour walk- outs in those cities last week. Attempts by post office au- thorities to clear backlogs at clher centres with casual help earlier resulted in local walk- outs not ordered by the Council of Postal Unions. Postmaster General Eric Kierans said in a television in- terview on Saturday that the rotating strikes could boost the post office deficit to tins year from the estimated deficit of He said the loss of volume in mail could result in the layoff of postal workers. This would reduce the work force to the 1966 level, just as the vol- ume of mail has been reduced to the 1966 level. Negotiations in the dispute ars scheduled to continue Tues- day. North Korean Spy Boat Captured SEOUL (AP) South Korean forces reported the capture of a North Korean "spy boat" early today after a two-hour ground, air and sea attack, and said the five or six North Koreans aboard the boat jumped over- board.

A spokesman said the boat was towed to Inchon, and a search was under way for the crew. No South Korean casualties were reported.

The Irish Republic's external affairs minister, Patrick Hiller, flew to London to discuss tha Northern Ireland crisis with British Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home.

American Troops Out Of Cambodian Battle Wilson Remains As Party Boss LONDON (Reuters) For- mer prime minister Harold Wil- son was re-elected leader of the Labor party today after defeat- ing an attempt to hold an in- quest into the party's defeat in Britain's June 18 general elec- tion.

From Reuters-AP All American troops in Cam- bodia, including American' ad- visers with South Vietnamese troops, have withdrawn to South Vietnam, U.S. military official said today. The officials said all the troops were back in South Viet- nam by 6 p.m. (6 a.m. The last troops to leave were infantry from the U.S. 1st Air Cavalry Division, who returned to South Vietnamese soil under umbrella protection from artil- lery, jet fighter-bombers and helicopter gunships as they left Cambodia's Fish Hook area north of Saigon. A U.S. command spokesman said there were no American advisers left with South Viet- namese troops remaining in Cambodia. South Vietnamese sources said about Saigon troops were still in Cambodia as the Americans completed their withdrawal 30 hours before President Nixon's final dead- line. The U.S. forces first officially moved into Viet Cong and North Vietnamese sanctuaries across the border May 1, although South Vietnamese troops had been operating unofficially in Cambodia for some weeks prior to this. Cambodian Premier Lon Nol expressed hope today that if his government's military situation deteriorates further that Nixon will send U.S. ground forces back into his country. The premier made clear dur- ing a news conference in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, that the United States has been directly assisting Cambodian troops with tactical air support and that he has been assured this will continue. Lon Nol said he thought the Communist threat to Phnom Penh had lessened in the last few weeks. Meantime at San Clemente, Calif., how to defend Cambodia without committing U.S. ground forces was expected to be a major issue in talks today between President Nixon and State Secretary William Rog- ers. With the last U.S. troops with- drawing from Cambodia to meet Nixon's June 30 deadline, a note of urgency has been added by tile decision of the Cambodian government vir- tually to abandon three north- western provinces to Commu- nist forces. At Saigon, South Vietnamese officials claimed more than 72 per cent of the voters turned out Sunday for provincial elec- tions despite Viet Cong attacks that killed at least 22 persons and wounded 81.

But government offi- cials claimed 72.6 per cent of the eligible voters turned out in the 44 provinces, with a heavier participation in rural areas than in the cities.
