Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, March 4, 1971 �-.-.- Egypt calls on Big Four help in Mid-East issue CAIRO (Reuter) - With only three days to go before the end of the Middle East ceasefire, the Egyptian government has called for a definite move by the Big Four powers to induce Israel to implement the Security Council resolution on the Middle East, the authoritative newspaper Al Ahram said today. Cairo will not be content with a mere statement of facts from representatives of the Big Four, scheduled to meet in New York today, but expects a "positive move by these states defining their stand towards Israel's refusal to reply to (Middle East envoy) Dr. Jarring's proposals and to withdraw completely from occupied territories," Al Ahram said. But the Big Four talks and U N Secretary General U Thant's report on developments in the negotiations were indefinitely postponed without formal explanation later today. Egypt's chief delegate to the United Nations, Dr. Mohamed Government faces trouble on its bilingualism policy VANCOUVER (CP) - The federal government will have trouble with its 15,000 professional civil servants if it continues its policy of bilingualism, Leslie Barnes, executive director of the professional institute of the Public Service of Canada, Nasser death may not have been natural TEL AVIV (Reuter) - Prof. Albert Sabin, American-born developer of oral polio vaccine, said today President Nasser of Egypt may have been killed by a dissident army group dissatisfied with Soviet policy. Sabin, president of the Israeli Wedzmann Institute of Science, said he was basing his theory on information received from a person connected with Egyptian army personnel who escaped from Egypt prior to Nasser's death. He said in an official statement released by the institute: "There is reason to suspect that Nasser did not die a natural death. "His death may have been caused by a dissident group of the Egyptian armed forces which is impatient with Russian policy of providing Egypt with help in the destruction of Israel but is not doing anything toward this end except by words and arms shipments." Nasser died Sept. 28. Egyptian officials said death was due to a heart attack. He was 52. said Wednesday. "We are in favor of bilingualism where the job needs bilingualism," Mr. Barnes said in an interview, "but the main problem is the way the federal government is implementing its policy." He said the government is trying to force civil servants into lerxning French and English as second languages too fast. Mr. Barnes said the institute is unhappy that some professional civil servants were laid off last summer, while the government has decided to hire 250 French - speaking persons this year. More than "0 per cent of the institute's members were French-speaking and the organization felt their numbers should be increased gradually. "Our morale is very low now and if nothing is done about it we can predict stormy weather ahead in the public service." Fined $2,600 in tax case EDMONTON (CP) - James A. Mickelsen of nearby Morin-ville was fined $2,600 on 10 income tax charges. Mickelsen pleaded guilty to nine charges' of filing false returns and one of wilfully evading payment of federal taxes on $22,795. Due taxes totalled $4,058. Court was told Mickelsen felt "as a working man I had paid enough taxes on my salary." Hassan el-Zayyat, had been told to inform U Thant that it would not be sufficient for the Big Four to issue a communique-no matter how strongly-worded. Dr. Zayyat had been told to stress that the Egyptian government expected the Big Four, as permanent members of the Security Council, to act together to make Israel implement the council resolution. MEETING SET Egypt's policy on the ceasefire with Israel will be decided at a crucial meeting to be held here later today between President Sadat and his top military and political advisers. Hees forecasts trouble over language rights MONTREAL (CP) - George Hees, trade minister in the Dief-enbaker government, said Wednesday he believes that if the Quebec government tried to diminish English-language rights in the province it could be the death of bilingualism across Canada. In a speech to a west-end Conservative association meeting, Mr. Hees said: "People in other provinces will say 'to hell with bilingualism' if Quebec tries to dtai-inish English language rights here." He added this could lead to "one of the worst dogfights Canada has ever seen." "As far as I'm concerned I don't know where Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa got the idea he could do this without amending the British North America Act. There have been no amendments to this act yet." Lift ban on Beatles JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) . - The South African Broadcasting Corp. has lifted a five-year ban on the Beatles and their music, imposed when John Len-non shocked religious circles by declaring that the group was more popular than Jesus.

Legislature Roundup North farmers need help; native people short-changed EDMONTON (CP) - Farmers in northern Alberta need help and the area's native people have been short-changed by Alberta NewStart, the legislature was told Wednesday. An experimental project set up by the federal and provincial governments in 1967 to help underprivileged people, Alberta NewStart overspent its 1.7-million budget last year because of "flamboyant administration," said Dan Bouvier (SC-Lac La Biche). "The only ones to gain from the war on poverty were those fortunate enough to get on the staff." He said the emphasis had to be shifted from research to training and job placement. "The native people should not be used as guinea pigs in a research project from which they have little hope of ending up better off than they were before." f Alberta NewStart should be reorganized so it can keep in touch with the people and "ensure mat more money is spent on training than on administration." The northeast should be declared a special area and industry encouraged to come there. "The native people are not willing to move. We have no choice but to bring industry to the people." Mr. Bouvier said three consecutive crop failures have left farmers in his constituency in need of financial help to put in a crop. They need interest-free loans for a minimum of three years. Charles Drain (SC - Pinch-er Creek - Crowsnest) said Industrial development in rural areas could be encouraged if per-capita grants to municipalities were weighted in favor of rural areas. Bill Dickie (PC - Calgary Glenmore) said the government should re-examine the delegation of powers to boards and tribunals and re-assess the role of the individual member of the legislature. Mr. Dickie, one of 10 Progressive Conservatives in the 65-seat House, said the attorney - general should proceed with an aggressive campaign to seek and stamp out undesirable laws, protective provisions should be added to trust company legislation and an in-depth study should be made into the causes of traffic accidents. The government introduced eight bills for first reading, Worth denies charges commission ignored ACC EDMONTON (CP) - Dr. Walter Worth Wednesday denied charges that Alberta Chambers of Commerce were ignored by the Worth Commission on Educational Planning. The chambers were invited "well over a year ago" to present briefs to the commission when it travelled around the province last spring and staged public hearings, Dr. Worth said in an interview. R. W. Chapman of Edmonton, head of the education committee of the Alberta Chamber of Commerce, said Tuesday the commission was overloaded with teachers and that chambers were largely excluded from invitational seminars held by the commission. Only one of the 124 chambers in Alberta was asked to send a representative to each of the seminars and the representative chosen by that chamber was not allowed to attend as the inviting committee considered him "unsuitable," Mr; Chapman said. The dominance of teachers was ovemhelming, he said. Of the 31 members on three committees, 27 were teachers. Dr. Worth said three members of the eight-man commission board have "considerable" background in business. None of the major chambers have presented briefs to date, he added. The commission was willing to receive an Alberta Chamber brief even though all briefs were to be in by Dec. 31, 1970. one of which would set up a commission to administer hospital services, nursing homes and senior citizens' homes in the province. The Alberta Hospital Services Commission would have the power to order a plebiscite in cases where a hospital requisition against local taxpayers exceeds a certain amount. Two bills would give the province the right to borrow more money. The Alberta Loan Act, 1971, would allow borrowing of up to $50 million while a proposed amendment to the Alberta Municipal Financing Corp. Act would increase its borrowing limit by $100 million to $1.1 billion. In presenting a record' $1.2-billion budget to the legislature Friday night, provincial treasurer A. O. Aalborg said the government would have to borrow about $80 million to meet a $16G-million deficit expected in its capital account. In other business a special legislative committee was recommended to investigate the Security Trust Co. collapse in 1969. The company was placed in receivership by the government in December, 1968, and ceased operations in September, 1969. No money has yet been paid to shareholders, said Bill Dickie (PC - Calgary Glenmore). Mr. Dickie proposed a committee to look into the company's affairs "with a view to determining the effect of public statements by elected representatives in 1967." He then produced transcripts from the 1967 session of the legislature when former Premier Ernest Manning denied newspaper reports the Alberta government was worried about shaky trust companies. Mr. Dickie said Security Trust lost $1.1 million in 1967 and asked what effect the statements in the legislature had on people purchasing shares. He referred to one man who told Mr. Dickie he invested $18,000 with the company. He also asked the attorney-general to look into problems of "selective enforcement" of laws. 4 W/f THE LETHBRIDGE FIGURE SKATING CLUB Is proud to present THE , "NUT CRACKER" Fri., March 5th - 8:00 p.m. Sat., March 6th - 2 and 8 p.m. in the LETHBRIDGE ARENA FEATURING: 150 LOCAL SKATERS TICKETS ON SALE AT THE DOOR Guest Artist- DON JACKSON "The greatest skater in the world" India withdraws from ocean study NEW DELHI (Reuter) - India has withdrawn from an eight-nation Commonwealth study group on Indian Ocean security that includes Canada in protest against the British sale of helicopters to South Africa, the government disclosed today. Storm slams into Quebec By THE CANADIAN PRESS Swirling, drifting snow slammed into Quebec province today, the fourth major storm in less than three weeks sending snow accumulation for the winter to near-record levels. Montreal International Airport reported nearly eight inches of snow had fallen by 7 p.m. MST. Four or five inches more were predicted during the day. The Montreal weather office, which has been keeping records since 1941, says today's fall would send the season accumulation to more than 130 inches, Just under the post-war record of 138.7 in 1946-47. Motorists were urged to leave ears at home. Schools were closed. Flights from Montreal International Airport were cancelled. Highway travel was virtually banned. Bus terminals were shut down. Chevalier centre of nostalgia LONDON (Reuter) - French entertainer Maurice Chevalier, 82, was the centre of a nostalgic gathering of British stage and screen celebrities Wednesday when he attended a luncheon to mark the English publication of his memoirs. The government released a speech made last Monday by the Indian delegate to the Commission of Human Rights in Geneva stating that India would not take part in the study group. The delegate, Leela Damo-dara Menon, said India had told Britain that it would leave the 6tudy group unless Britain gave assurances that it would not take action to supply arms to South Africa until the group had reported. "The United Kingdom govern, ment have rejected this' suggestion. We will accordingly not take part in the study group." Her speech, which was not reported in the Indian press, was the first announcement of India's withdrawal from the group set up at the Singapore conference of Commonwealth leaders last January. At the time, the creation of the group was seen in some quarters' as a compromise measure to keep black African states from staging a walkout- or even a breakaway from the Commonwealth-over the hotly-controversial arms issue. Reds boycott peace talks PARIS (Reuter) - The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong chief delegates boycotted today's session of the Vietnam peace talks in protest against American air attacks on North Vietnam. They sent their deputies to register protests at the 105th weekly session of the negotia-itons. The gesture followed statements issued by chief Hanoi negotiator Xuan Thuy and the Viet Cong chief delegate Mrs. Ngo-yen Thi Binh, saying the Nixon administration i s preparing "new military moves" against North Vietnam.
