Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID - Wednesday, March 10,1971. Laid outlines blueprint to prevent war MELVIX LAIRD By RALPH HARRIS WASHINGTON (Reuter) -Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird has outlined a strategic blueprint to p r e' v e n t war by rallying the strength of U.S. allies and maintaining an adequate but restrained nuclear deterrent against the Soviet Union and China. Laird told the armed services committee of the House of Representatives Tuesday that the Nixon administration has decided to go ahead with only a limited expansion of its. Safeguard anti-ballistic missile system as a sign of its restraint and desire to scale down the nuclear arms race. But he said that President Nixon is keeping all his options open in the event that there is no agreement in the strategic arms limitation talks with the Russians or if the Chinese develop a nuclear threat against American cities. In his annual defence posture statement, Laird expressed continuing concern over Soviet rocket development and China's growing capability to build and deploy intercontinental ballistic missiles by the mid-1970s. He said China might have tested an ICBM over a reduced range last year, and defence officials reported privately that there are indications that the test ook place over several miles. SPELLS OUT POLICY Laird's statement, expanding the Nixon Doctrine of reducing the U.S. role as world policeman while avoiding isolationism which could tempt aggression, gave three broad criteria on which American security planning throughout the world is based. -The United States will preserve a sufficient strategic nuclear capability as the cornerstone of the non-Communist world's nuclear deterrent. -Development of non-Communist forces in the NATO area and elsewhere that are effective and strong enough to minimize the likelihood of requiring the use of nuclear weapons if deterrence should fail. -An American military aid program adequate to buildup the conventional strength of U.S. allies and which will encourage security arrangements among them. Laird said that while the U.S. will remain involved in worldwide security, it expects that allies and friends will provide more of the means and the will to deter local wars and to defend themselves against attack.

But he stressed that there is a need for the Asians themselves to strengthen their conventional forces to defend themselves against non-Chinese attacks and to force China to pause before it thought of launching hostilities. Laird made a strong appeal for Congress to override ex pected attempts to make major cuts in the $76,000 million defence budget in view of what he termed growing ' Russian and Chinese strength. He officially informed Congress that President Nixon will seek about $1,280 million in the 1972 financial year beginning July 1 for a limited expansion of the Safeguard ABM system. Laired also expressed worry over the expanding Russian ballistic-missile submarine fleet, which he called the fastest-growing element of the nuclear threat to the U.S. Mail flows again LONDON (AP) �- Mail, telegram and telephone links between Britain and other countries were reported nearly normal today after a 47-day nationwide postal workers' strike. A spokesman for the post office which handles these communications, said operations were moving smoothly toward restoring full services within Britain with one major exception-a new wildcat walkout that cut off letter deliveries to 125,000 persons in Preston, near Liverpool. Some 150 Preston mailmen walked out when postal officials refused to restart their pay from 9 a.m. Monday, the hour when many of the 200,000 British postal employees returned to work. Postal chiefs said the Preston men clocked in at various times and would be paid from when they actually resumed work. The post office has lifted its embargo on incoming foreign mail. A backlog of 60 million pieces of foreign mail-nearly twice the post office's normal total daily volume-was beginning to flow into the country. International telephone and telegram communications were restored to normal Monday morning. The Post Office said nearly all the 11 million domestic letters in the pipeline when the strike began now have been delivered. Government to cut aid to university TORONTO (CP) - University Affairs Minister John White Tuesday announced cuts in financial-aid programs for graduate studies at Ontario universities, calculated to save the province more than $7 million a year. Mr. White said the minimum tuition fee for full-time graduate students will be set at $485, the same level as for under-gradu-ates, an annual saving of $560,000. Previously, graduate students paid a small tuition fee, in some instances only $100, or none at all, to use university facilities for research or postgraduate study. Retroactive to Jan. 1, a graduate student paid in excess of $1,800 by a university for services during any 12-month period will not be considered a full-time student for purposes of provincial grants. In the past, the grant cutoff was $2,500, and the $700 reduction will mean a saving of $4.9 million. The total funds for the Ontario graduate fellowships will be reduced for the 1971-72 term to $3.5 million from $5 million. Mr. White, who took over as minister only a week ago, said he is also considering what economies can be made in grants for undergraduates, capital grants "and my own departmental expenditures." A memo from his department, not rert of his original statement, indicated that the new program would result in a decline of 743 students doing postgraduate studies by March, 1972.
