Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 HERAID March 1971 Carl Rowan Buying Home Oil Company The Canadian government is re ported to be seriously considering buying Home Oil Company of Cal the largest independent operat ingin this The reason is the public outcry over the already over whelming ownership of the Cana dian oil industry by foreign Those who are overly unless they are should ap preciate that Canadian government ownership is not an acceptable alter native to ownership by private for eign The only remedy is ownership by private Canadian capi That remedy has been unwork able for two reasons Canadians are not as willing to invest in their own and they havent enough no matter how willing they might to develop the country at the rate they seem to want it de If the people expect the govern ment to fill the gap they themselves will not or cannot they are bound to be The gov ernment cannot do it without imposing economic tyranny on the The Soviet Union has a good deal of state capital but look at the price the people Are Cana dians prepared to put up with the oppressive labor conditions and low standard of living endured by the people there for so long The Canadian government is a major with private capi in Panarctic a consortium exploring for oil and gas in the Arc tic That is not the same as owning one Canadian oil company in competition with a number of pri vately owned If the government buys and oper ates Home its position as arbiter and as guardian of the peoples in terests will be Where will it end How could the government avoid being expected to bail out other Canadian companies in or other Canadian companies presented with attractive offers from foreign capital Canadas problem cannot be re solved this Only a different at titude by the people can do And dont mean simply signing peti tions advocating Canadian indepen New stance One of the most familiar stances in the world over the past twenty years Is undergoing This is the pos ture of absolute nonaccommodation on the part of the United States to ward The Peoples Republic of Lifting the ban on the travel of American citizens to that country will have no practical consequences but it is oE obvious psychological import The Chinese are not apt to per mit an influx of American visitors but they will be aware that President Nixon is shifting the American posi At long last it appears that it has dawned on top Americans that it doesnt make sense to try to pretend that the Asian giant doesnt or wont cause any trouble if One by one the allies have been deserting the position as untenable and have been working out their own adjustment to the Chinese It is no doubt a shock to the exiled Nationalist government on Taiwan to have the begin to alter its The very fact that President in his State of the World ad referred to Communist China as the Peoples Republic was enough to cause anguish to Presi dent Chiang In the United States the powerful China lobby that has so successfully held the country to an undeviating opposition to any kind of accommo dation to the mainland government must be That it is Presi dent Nixon who is overruling the lobby must be nearly The world is too threatened to allow the unrealistic and dangerous ignoring of The Peoples Republic to Nixon is smart enough to know it and is trying to do some thing about The payoff By Joyce Sasse I wasnt going to fall dupe to the payoff I was above such When the time Id tell the time came And I didnt tell I It happened like I was shopping in downtown a

this to someone who is trying to help our implying that he was going to give back our precious little white and blue Kim And turn ing took a couple of bills out of his The exchange was made but with the parties on both sides knowing the I asked after we had again stopped all six lanes of traffic so we coulc cross to our illegally parked did you do that As an elder of the church him were his ethics no better Because of all the trouble and money it would cause to do it any other Most of our laws are made to be interpreted in this I Something inside me But I continued to You are going back
