Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 "IHf IETHBRIOGE HERALD Tuesday, March 6, Endorses Vietnam peace pact 3ritish diplomat says Indochina peace only beginning An AP News Analysis By AnTHUll L. GAVSUON PARIS (AP) "So said r Aloe Douglas-Koine wilh the ry detachment of an utiin- olvcd onlooker, "so good." Britain's foreign secretary ad just signed the inlcr- nlional endorsement of the U.S. peace agreement, wilh the Vietnamese. So, too, had foreign ministers of the world's other great pow- ers, the Vietnamese contenders themselves, and the four states assigned to check cheating. Douglas-Home has been in frontline diplomacy since Ne- ville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler signed the ill-starred Munich Pact in 1930. He thinks he knows what makes inter- national settlements work. In the Vietnamese context his meaning was clear. Peace in Indochina is only just ULC last Nimeiri faces tough decision By HOLDER JENSEN KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) "resident Jafar el Nimciri ol udan faces a delicate di- emma: Whether to treat his ight Palestinian captives as ommon murderers or political prisoners. His handling of their case will affect Khartoum's standing in lie Arab world and in the United States, with which Ni- meiri resumed diplomatic rcla- ions last July and this year gave him ?30 million in aid. While Nimciri decides what to do, the government has im- posed a blackout on Sudanese newspapers and radio stations regarding the guerrillas. The guerrillas stormed the Saudi Arabian embassy, look five diplomats hostage and killed three of them. "Khartoum has always sup- ported the Palestinian said one U.S. diplomat. "To maintain its standing in the Arab world, they will have lo continue supporting the Pale- stinian cause. 'But the Sudanese arc also extremely law-abiding. They abhor violence, and there only one penalty for murder.' Sudanese justice is usually swift as well as harsh. It is common to have a trial one day and a hanging the next. The governments delay in announcing what it plans to do with the guerrillas indicates the depth of Nimeiri's dilemma. oreign sildier lo die Ihere has not yet been born. WANT PEACE Nevertheless, the British dip- cmal, like U.S. Secretary of late William P. Rogers, drew comfort from n conviction that all the world's big powers want an Indochina peace package once and for all. Tlie United States, Russia, China and other nations want to shed a commitment that has for too long shackled their freedom of action on other fronts. For them the age of alliance politics has age oi the politics of manoeuvre is stalling. With all Indochina perhaps even neutralized ulli mntely in a sort of East-Wcsl way then would be open for a crucial new phase in relations belwcen Americans Russians. Chinese, Japanese and West Europeans. For these are the people in he world's newly emerging power centres. SITUATIONS CHANGE In a world of changing align- ments, where new friendships sometimes replace old loyalties, all sorts of things await clnri- fication: Russians arc hoping to engage the Americans in closer industrial and trading coopera- tion. Chinese are Irying to leapfrog over a generation of mistrust and hostility into Ihe interdependent world ol the 1970s. heir rising economic power is impelling the Japanese to seek a way out of the isola- lion they think has been im- posed on them by the Ameri- cans and Europeans. Europeans, banded lightly into an exclusive trading community, still are locked in something of a contest wilh Washington and Tokyo over monetary, commercial and even defence policies. Radial tires order boosted DETROIT (AP) Ford Mo- tor Co. says it plans to increase substantially the number ol steel-belled radial-ply tires it uses as standard equipment for its 1974-model automobiles. Harold 0. MacDonald, vice president tor product develop- ment said Ford would use about half of the 22 million slccl-bcllcd radials it has or- dered for 1974 models as origi- nal equipment. That' would be about four times the number of radial tires used to equip 25 per cent of Ford's 1973 aulo output, lie said. Peace keeping duty Canadian officers of ICCS sub-learn join fellow bers of ICCS boarding helicopter for peace keeping in Vietnam. mem- palroi SC followers confused by recent events WINNIPEG (CP) Many I Social Credit followers in Mani- toba are confused by recent events that have undermined the Lr.idilional philosophy of the party, Prof. Ixirne A. Reznow- sky said in an interview here. Speaking during the Manitoba Social Credit League's two-day convention, Prof. Heznowsky said the ideals on which So- cial Credit founded no long- er are applicable. For instance, Ernest C. Man- ning who led the party in Al- berta as premier from 1945 to IMS, now is a bank director al- though Social Credit tradition- ally has opposed the banking system and what it regards as the world conspiracy of finan- ciers, he said. Prof. Reznowsky. an English professor at the University of Manitoba and a chief spokesman for the party in Manitoba, said the defection of former national leader Robert Thompson to the Conservatives in I960 was further blow to the party. These events, as well as the party's recent election failures in British Columbia and Alber- ta, have left Manitoba follow- ers wondering about the party's future, he said. ONE MEMBER Social Credit now has one memucr in the Manitoba leg- islature, party leader Jake Froese, the member for Rhine- land. The convention began wilh a Tests shoiv moon dust not volcanic WASHINGTON (AP) Tha orange moon dust brought bacl by the Apollo 17 astronauts via- not volcanic after all, Unitei States government scientists re ported Sunday, but is made o tiny glass beads probabl; created by an ancient meteor. Astronaut Harrison Schmit had suggested, while gatherin the strange orange soil on th moon, that it might have com from relatively recent volcani activity, and carlhbound scien fists hoped it would tell the: something about Ihc secmingl cold moon's inner life. The U.S. Geological Surve said the meteor responsible fo Ihe orange soil probabl slammed into the moon som 3.71 billion years ago, instantl melting both itself and the li nar rock it hit. "The resulting violent e plosion sprayed this liquid oi into space as very liny droplet travelling at high velocity and in part spinning said the agency's statement. "Most droplets cooled very fast, forming solid orange glass beads before they landed." Some cooled more slowly, forming- crystals and burning black. lie paid the deep orange color of Ihe tiny bezels probably comes from thtir high titanium and iron content. anquet attended by about 130 ersons. Prof. Reznowsky and illes Caouette, son of National eadcr Real CaoueUe and ember of Parliament for harlevoix, were the speakers, he senior Mr. Caouette and Iberta leader Werner chmidt were scheduled lo nt- end but did not como. Prof. Reznowsky urged a re- urn to the basic principles of party, the precepts of Ma- C. H. Douglas, the British ngineer who formulated Social 'redit. Prof. Reznowsky said Social Credit does not have lo sound ike other political parties fanifoba to gain power. It need nly expound on the theory ol ocial Credit and Ihc financial :onspiracy theory of hislory. ,IUST CAMPAIGN Social Creditors must cam laign for Uic provincial con- rol of credit, he said. "Yoi may have ridicule. They ridicule you when you talk he truth. Christ was ridicul ed." Mr. Caouette said the prob- em in Canada is monetary pol cy, not French-English rela ions, In a country that vealthy in resources, there is still a lack of money and a of purchasing ryiwer, he said. The convention passed onl; xjlicy resolution which callei simply for the implemenlatio of Social Credit at the proyin cial level. Instead of electin; new executive, Ihe conven ,ion appointed a committee o JO persons "to draft a polic of action and arrange for convention with full provincia rcpresentalion." Saturn rings composed of roclf material PASADENA, Calif. (AP) The mysterious rings that circ! the planet Saturn appear to b composed of large, soli chunks, perhaps rocky mati rial, rather than ice crystals o dust, two radar astronmers n port. One of Ihe astronomer said this means the rings, from tn miles out, coul endanger spacecraft travelling through or near them. The new theory of Ihc makeup of the rings is based on Ihe first successful radar inves- tigation of Saturn, some 700 million miles away, said Dr. Richard Goldstein and George Morris of California Institute of Technology. "From our radar results, the rings canrot be made up of tiny ice crystals, dust or Ihcy said in a statement released Sunday. They said that radar beams reflected back from the lines "indicate roueh, jagged surfaces, with solid material one metre (3.3 feet) in diameter or larger. Possibly much larcer.' The scientists used a National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration radar antenna at Gold- stone Station on the Mojnvc Desert in California.
