Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Members haggle Simrp Friday, Morch 5, 1971 - THE lETHBRIDGE HCRAID - Vi over farm bill OrrAWA (CP) - The Com-m 0 n s agricultiu'e committee Thursday edged further into its consideration of the government's bill to establish a national fai'm products marketing cpuncil, approving one subclause of the third of 40 sections. But before approval came, committee memi>ers wangled at length over an opposition amend m e n t providing that members of the council be appointed for seven-year terms, with the stipulation that they could be removed from office for just cause at any time. The amendment, moved by Jack Horner (PC-Crowfoot) and defeated 15 to 11, would have replaced the bill's proposal that council members hold office ait the pleasure of the cabinet, Mr, Horner came to the committee meeting armed with volumes of federal statutes. Many of them, he said, had established similar councils or boards but did not allow membership to be terminated at the pleasure of the cabinet. Opposition members joined Mr. Horner in chiding Agriculture Minister H. A Olson for telling the committee Wednesday that it was common practice in such cases to allow membership on a federal council or board at the pleasure of the cabinet. OLSON LEFT MEET Mr. Olson, however, did not respond to requests for an explanation of his earlier comments and soon left the meeting. Nearly all of the discussion of the amendment came from the opposition side ot the table. Clifford Downey (PC-Battle River) told the committee it ap-p e a r e d to him that th,e precedent for expHcit terms of office was well established, and that to leave the period of office to the pleasure of the cabinet left it "too much open to political philandering." Richard R. Southam (PC-Qu-Appelle-Moose Mountain) said the amendment removed "all fears of political interference," and would be welcomed by any appointee who would want to be guaranteed some tenure of office. The bunker people XE RANG NUOC, Laos (Reu-ter) - Some 900 Montagnard tribesmen in this village have been living, dying and marrying in bunkers 10 miles inside Laos fearful of venturing into the open because of American air strikes in support of the South Vietnamese attack on the Hi Chi Minh trail. The villagers are the first civilians to be overtaken by South Vietnamese troops in Laos and have spent most of the last month in their bunkers. Late Wednesday reporters accompanied a South Vietnamese patrol to the village and saw at. first hand tte effects the battle raging in Laos has had on their existence. The village is located in a heavily forested area some two miles from the South Vietnam- Owns Jiffy Bar RAYMOND (HNS) - A Raymond businessman has purchased a Cardston business.

It is about VA miles from a river where the villagers had caught fish and cultivated rice for more than half a century. THE BUNKER PEOPLE The South Vietnamese troops occupjing Firebase Delta One have named the Montagnards "bunker people" and since their arrival have sent bags of rice, clothing and cigarettes to the villagers. These presents have been the main sources of food for the Montagnards since the war swept over them. The villagers said that for the last 11 years they had been the "slaves" of the North Vietnamese who used them as porters when bad weather stopped vehicles moving down the Ho Chi Minh trail. A village elder said they had : lived in the area for more than j 50 years and until the North Vietnamese began moving supplies through Laos their only contact with war was fighting with neighboring tribesmen. Surrounding the village are a number of abandoned North Vietnamese bunkers where truck drivei"s had rested. warns again OTTAWA CCP1 - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp Thur.sday issued another indirect warning to the United States that Canada vigorously opposes any oil tanker route from Alaska to Washington State. He said in the Commons in reply to Gordon Aiken (PC- Parry Sound-Muskoka) that there would be "great risks" for Canada and especially the British Columbia coast in such tanker operations. He used the expression "great risks" twice and at another pomt said "very risky." He decided to answer Mr. Aiken's question on whether the U.S. has formally replied to Canada's request for consultations on a, tanker route. He said merely that the U.S*. has not taken any def'-'"-i because hearings are still going on. Mr. Shai-p said that a U.S. decision against a cross-Alaska oil pipeline combined with tanker shipments to the continental U.S. would allow freedom for consideration of alternate routes, NO BIDDERS YET Mr. Sharp, acting prime minister during a brief skiing holiday by Prime Minister Trudeau, said no U.S. company has applied to Canada for an oil pipeline route from the Arctic. If there is an application, the National Energy Board will hold public hearings, he told David Orlikow (N D P -W i n n i p e g North). In reply to Louis Comeau (PC -South Western Nova), the minister said Energy Minister J. J. Greene now is developing an energy policy for presentation to the cabinet. This policy might be presented to the public m the form of a white paper, but Mr. Sharp gave no indication when this might be done. Paul Y e w c h u k (PC-Athabasca) asked that residents of the Mackenzie Valley be con-! suited on any pipeline route! down the valley to Edmonton.
