Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuttdcy, Match 13, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Shumann may lose top post AP News Arnlysis By JOHN VINOCUR PARIS (AP) Foreign Min- ister Maurice Schumann's loss in Sunday's National Assembly elections won't change French foreign policy but it almost cer- tairrly means his departure as foreign minister, to I he satisfac- tion of the United States and Is- rael. 'Schumann, who first held a National Assembly seat in 1948, was beaten by a Socialist candi- date in Armenlieres, long re- garded as a safe election dis- trict in northern France. A diplomatic source, com- menting on Schumann's loss, said it may mean a change in tone and degree in French for- eign policy. But because the Guallists do not need any oppo- sition group to help them form a government, he added, no major innovations arc foreseen. -The difference in lone, the source suggested, would come from the elimination of a Gaull- ist purish such as Schumann, whose attitude was often thought to be vastly more anti- American and less confident in European co cneration tiian that of President Georges Pom- pidou. Schumann was regarded by the Americans to have con stantly bent over backward to accommodate North Vietnam while peace negotiations were going on in Paris, and he was held responsible for permitting anti-American and anti-South Vielnamsse demonstrations that deeply angered U.S. officials at the signing of Ihc truce agree- ments Jan. 27. I'KO-ARAB Any changes that may come in the essentially pro-Arab French policy in Ihe Middle East arc not apparent, but Schumann's departure can only improve relations v.'ith Israel. The Israelis regarded Schu- mann, a Jew converted to Ro- man Catholicism, as a staunch pro-Arab who directed a vocal anti-Israel policy at the United Nations. The man regarded as Schu- mann's most likely replacement is AHre lietlencouri, who now holds the title of minister dele- gate for foreign affairs. It was Bettencourt who met for three hours last year with John Irwin, the U.S. under- secretary of state who is ex- pected shortly to take up his post as new ambassador in I Paris. three automakers want ighter exhaust restrictions Puddle perils Walking through puddles can be fun but it has Ms risks, as year-olds, Nancy Reid and umbrella-holding Jp-Anne Brereton, been enjoying an unusual mild spell._____________________ WASHINGTON (AP) The] ation's Big Three automakers urged today that current auto-1 xhaust restrictions be tight- ned but the 1975 guidelines eakened. The proposals by General Mo- irs, Ford and Chrysler were lade in statements submitted i the Environmental Protection gency which today is begin- ing court-ordered hearings on e proposed 1975 regulations. The automakers earlier ought and were denied a one- ear delay in enforcement of he restrictions. They said they ould not meet the stringent -egulations. The proposed compromise egulations would decrease the amount of contaminants spewed nto the air under current regu- alions, but would not be as ough as proposed for 1975 model-year cars. SPECIFIES LIMITS Under current regulations cars must not emit more pollu tants per mile than 39 grams o carbon monixide, 3.4 grams o hydrocarbons and three grams of nitrogen oxides. General Mo tors has proposed that the lydrocarbon level be cut to two ;rams and the carbon monoxide ut to 25 grams. It asked that he nitrogen oxide level be left he same. Ford suggested the hydrocar- level be cut to 1.7 grams a mile and carbon monoxide re- luced to 20 grams a mile, with he nitrogen oxide level remain- ng the same. Chrysler's pro- ws al urged carbon monoxide >e reduced to 24 grams a mile, hydrocarbons reduced to 1.7 and nitrogen oxide to 2.7. The proposed 1975 standard would limit exhaust emissions no more than 3.4 of carbon monoxide, .4 grams of hydro carbons and 3.0 grams of nitro- gen oxides. The nitrogen oxide output would be restricted to A grams per mile in 1976. William Ruckelshaus, admin- istrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, earlier de- nied Detroit's request for a one- year extension of the present standards, and the automakers sued to have the decision re- versed. The U.S. Court of Appeals last February rejected the ar- gument by the automakers, but ordered Ruckelshaus to recon- sider his decision and begin an- other round of hearings on tha antipollution standards. Ruck- elshaus has until April 11 to reach a final decision in com- pliance with Uie court order. WALTER AND THE GEESE. Gordon H.

Few planes were flying from Paris because of the air traffic con- trollers strike, but she man- aged to get a plane to Gatwick airport, about 30 miles from London. When she got there, she tried to do what most travellers do from Gatwick take the train into the town. No trains. The train drivers in England were on strike. So she called a friend who drove out to retrieve her. The incident reflects the an- noyances in every day life ex- perienced from a rash of laboi troubles, not only in Britain, but also in France, Italy, and even Belgium. They have hit res- idents of these countries anr also businessmen and tourists who are often encountering trouble, as it is, in changing their money because of the con- tinuing uncertainty in the world's money markets. In Britain, sporadic strikes and slowdowns are being ear ried out by train drivers, non medical employees in hospitals gas industry workers anc teachers. All trains stoppei Sunday, for example, in th first of a series of Sunda strikes in a wage dispute. DEFEND TITLE In Italy, which usually end up any year with Ihe world rei ord for m-anhours lost b strikes, unions were continuin their determination to defen the title. University teachers various categories of Etal and quasi-state employees, tl cabin staff of Alitalia Airline; drivers of fuel oil tank truck doctors in hospitals, and 1.4 mi ton metal and mechanic vorkers are carrying out a be number of strike- slowdowns and scattered wor stops. The major discomfort of last week came when the doctors walked out of the hospitals, .rcating. no one except emer- gency cases, for two days.

In Belgium, the focus of trou- le has been at the airport, 'hich has become the main ter. linal for airplanes diverted roin. France because of the cntrcllers strike. The problem as been to handle the rise in ravellers and customs and pc- >ce authorities have been wamped with baggage and emporary visa work. Many >assengers boarded airline bus- s for the last leg to Paris. Then on Wednesday, Brussels wn controllers decided on slowdown in a move for better wages and pension causing even more severe flight delays This called off, however >ending new negotiations. In France, the controllers strike continues, although there _s a rare absence of oilier ma jor strikes this March. Part of ilie explanation for the relative calm apart from the incon- venience to travellers is the current legislative elections, in which the ruling Gaullist party trying to head off a chal- lenge from, the Socialist and Communist coalition. CHOOSE RESTRAINT Accordingly, the trade unions, which have close links with the left-wing parties, are believed (p have chosen restraint at this time. For to win, the left must attract sufficient numbers of voters from the middle-class centre who frown on strikes as contrary to law and order. Still on Wednesday, the employees of the stock exchange annoyed investors by calling a strike for higher pay. Just when Britain gets back to normal is an open question. Afler the complete rail halt last Thursday and Sunday, the dis- pute with the train drivers is expected to lead to delays and cancellations on a variety of' commutir services all week and beyond.
