Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 13, 197! - THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD - fi Murder of soldiers causes outrage British press calls for intensified battle against Ulster terrorists By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) - A call for an intensified battle against Ulster terrorists swept through the British press today in a combined outcry of horror against the murder of three young Scot- Export sales set record in February OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian export sales last month outstripped imports by almost $240 million, a record surplus on merchandise trade for the month of February. Preliminary figures released Friday by Dominion Bureau of Statistics value February imports at $1,018 million, a decline of nearly four per cent from the $1,058 million recorded in February, 1970. As reporetd earlier this week, February exports were valued at $1,258 million, up only marginally from $1,254 million a year earlier. The decline In imports resulted from a drop of $50 million to $756 million in purchases from the United States. Shifts in the value of imports from other countries generally were upward and partly .offset the decline in U.S. imports. A prime reason for the year-to-year change was a sharp drop in imports of aircraft and parts to about $14 million from an unusually-high rate of almost $54 million in February, 1970.

But in general, the outraged press backed the British! government's order that there be no army reprisals against silent Ulstermen, including those who may have clues that may lead police and troops to the assassins. In Belfast, off-duty troops were confined to barracks on commanders' instructions. But the conviction grew among police, troops and the press that those responsible for the murders were members of the hard-core Irish Republican Army provisionals, the more vi- Polish army has new commander WARSAW (Reuter) - Poland's army got a new political chief and a new commander of internal defence forces in a major leadership reshuffle announced today following the removal of its second-highest-ranking general. Lt.-Gen. Jozef Urbanowicz, 55, Soviet-born former Red Army officer, was moved from the post of chief political officer which he held for six years to become deputy defence minister for general affairs, the official news agency PAP reported. A former deputy, Lt.-Gen. Jan Czapla, succeeds him as chief of the army's central political board. Lt.-Gen.

Scotland Yard officers joined Ulster security forces in a search for the murderers as Home Secretary Reginald Maudling pledged in the Commons Thursday that the battle against the unnamed terrorists will be "fought with the utmost vigor end determination." Still warm, the bodies of the off-duty soldiers-two brothers agefl 17 and 18 and anclfier aged 23-were found in a lane on the outskirts of Belfast normally "out of bounds" to British troops. Army officers figure that the youths, in civilian clothes, were drinking in a downtown bar and were enticed or forced into a car and taken to the execution area. Maudling also promised to investigate why one of the dead COPS AND ROBBERS - The police were waiting for Bernard Gless, 25, when he made a short-lived attempt to escape their custody at Lille, France. A few moments earlier he had been sentenced to three years in jail for robbing a convent. New currency crisis looms OTTAWA (CP) - Dealings on international currency markets signal development of yet another foreign-exchange crisis, the latest in what by now is a countless succession in the last decade. For Canada, the pressure is on federal authorities to encourage banks and financiers to drop their lending rates another notch for the third time in eight weeks. That would conflict with federal plans to move in measured fashion towards a free-spending era in order to avoid a rushed resumption of easier credit that might revive price inflation. Some Canadian, European and Japanese experts feel the United States once again is the villain of the piece. The pressure developing in currency markets is really downward against the U.S. dollar.

The German mark, pound sterling and Japanese yen are bumping against the upper limits of the fixed ranges of their exchange rales in relation to the U.S. dollar, as agreed internationally. NEARING EQUALITY The Canadian dollar, freed last June 1 from its fixed exchange rate of around 92% U.S. cents, has been pushing towards a rate that would make it equal to the U.S. dollar or more in recent dealings. What has been happening, once again, is that businessmen have lost confidence in U.S. currency. In effect, they believe that the U.S. dollar is worth less than its fixed price in relation to other currencies. That belief results in turn from evidence that the United States as a whole is spending more abroad than it earns by internal output. The United States has a perennial deficit in transactions of all kinds with the rest of the world, partly because of the money poured into such foreign ventures as the Vietnam War. In Canada, for example, that means that the banking system is up to here in U.S. currency. Regarding money as a commodity-a means to buy goods-there is more of it around than anyone may usefully use. RESERVES RISE Canada's reserve holdings of U.S. dollars have risen by more than 60 per cent in a year to $3,077 million at the end of last month from about $1,898 million a year earlier. When U.S. money pours in-to pay for purchases of Canadian goods, as money-earning investments or as short-term speculation that the value of the Canadian dollar will go up-the funds must be exchanged for Canadian dollars. Eventually, the spare U.S. dollars find their way through the banking system to the federal exchange fund account, where they must be purchased. If there are not enough Canadian dollars in that account to meet the demand, the government must use its own money or borrow. By borrowing, the govern- Iment in effect stimulates inflation. men, 17-year-old John McCaig, was on active duty with the army. This led to reports today that all soldiers under the age of 18 are expected to be withdrawn from Northern Ireland. In Glasgow, Elizabeth McLean, mother of one of the dead soldiers, said she would not allow her other son, also serving in Northern Ireland, to return to Belfast. David McCaughey, whose guard duty Wednesday night Emergency law bans strikes STOCKHOLM (Reuter) -Sweden's emergency powers banning all strikes and lockouts for six weeks became law Friday, halting a 38-day labor dispute which has disrupted the country's civil life. The emergency legislation, rushed through parliament Thursday to stop the dispute, was formally approved by King Gustav Adolf and the cabinet today. The ban, which comes into force midnight, will apply until April 23, giving 47,000 civil servants time to negotiate a pay settlement. The law halts Sweden's worst bout of labor troubles since the Second World War. At one time it was feared the dispute might involve a government lockout of officers and men in the armed forces, thus threatening national security. FIRST INTERVENTION The legislation marks the first case of direct government intervention in a dispute arising from the country's wage bargaining proceedings, long considered a model of sophistication. It has aroused union fears that it will, by implication, spell the end of civil servants' rights to negotiate. Friday's impelrnentation of the law will send 12,000 strikers back to work in the next few days, including 600 train controllers who brought rail services to a standstill when they walked out Feb. 5. Rail official say services will be normal by Sunday. prevented his joining his brother Dougald, 23, and the two McCaig brothers for their ofMuty drink, was flown home by the army Thursday. "I don't care what the army says, he is not going back to Ireland," Mrs. McLean said. "I wish to God he was at the other end of the world rather than in Ulster." ANGER MOUNTS As anger against the murder of the young soldiers mounted, debate intensified over the question of interning known and suspected IRA members. Ulster Prime Minister James Chichester-Clark has the power to reintroduce internment but apparently fears this will further divide the Protestant and Roman Cathoilc population with moder- ate Catholics becoming sympathetic with the extremists. The Daily Telegraph, calling for more troops and quicker use of arms in Ulster, suggested the authorities could easily produce a list of suspects for interment without trial. "Punishments which have no proper place in the normal penal code can be justified when the community is in dire peril," it said. The Financial Times agreed there is scope for more energetic army action when many Catholics feel revulsion over the killings. The Daily Mirror maintained that a handful of thugs cannot operate without the complicity of others. It said it is up to Ulster citizens to show that the British government is right in opposing reprisals. AGREES CRIME SAVAGE The Times agreed that the crime was savage, probably designed to undermine the established authority. It said firm discipline is essential if the terrorists are to be frustrated in their strategy. The Guardian proposed the use of dye in water cannons to identify rioters. It also supported internment and the use of more troops to search for arms. But The Guardian disagreed with The Daily Express, which called for rearming the Ulster constabulary-the Ulster force hated by most Catholics. In Scotland, the Scotsman maintained that reprisals would be playing the terrorists' game. meres more todhv with n.m.R. ill-mi Now ... a totally new form of A.M.A. membership provides the complete range of services to both man and wife, and extends Personal Accident Insurance protection for all children in the family under 16 years of age, regardless of the number.
