Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 29 ~ THt IITHBRIDOI HIRALD - Thursday, March IS, 1971 - Pompidou dispels rumors of French NATO re-entry PARIS (CP Speculation over a possible French re-entry into NATO appears to have been dispelled by President Georges Pompidou's most recent statement on the issue. While allowing that loyalty to the alliance would likely continue because of national interests and historic links, Mr. Pompidou made it clear in a weekend address that bis government's policy towards military re-integration has not changed. The reasons behind his thinking are not considerably different from those put forth by the late President Charles de Gaulle when he withdrew French forces from the organization in 1966. It is France's duty "to maintain its freedom of decision," Mr. Pompidou told trainees at a Paris military school. "It is not only a question of national interest but one of survival in the event of a conflict." HOPES ERASED French supporters of reentry, whose hopes were all but erased by the president's speech, had Gudmundson backed by Wafflers REGINA (CP) - Carol Gudmundson, a Saskatoon housewife and an active Waffle group supporter, has announced she will be a candidate for the national leadership of the New Democratic Party. Mrs. Gundmundson is a former vice - president of the Saskatchewan NDP. A news release announcing her candidacy says Waffle supporters in all provinces have endorsed her as a candidate. The campaign will be based on the concept that the presidency is the key to restoring control of the party to the rank and file membership. been buo; ed by two recent government moves they felt might be leading to an overhaul of the nation's NATO policy. French naval vessels took part in NATO exercises in February off the coast of Portugal following a January visit by top military officials to the organization's headquarters in Brussels. The January talks, however, apparently dealt only with a new communications system Chamber finds jobs for students EDMONTON (CP) - The Canadian Chamber of Commerce will operate a program to find jobs for students in Alberta again this summer, it was announced here. Operation Placement, which increased student summer employment by about 22 per cent in the province' last year, will have a * greater goal this summer, Gene Roark of Calgary, the chamber's Alberta representative, told a new conference. He said employers will be encouraged to increase their normal work force by five per cent to give more students jobs. Last summer 38 per cent of 30,000 Alberta students registered at Canada Manpower found, work, he said. Operation Placement hopes this will be increased to 40 to 45 per cent. The provincial government has announced establishment of the Alberta Ecology Corps, which Premier Harry Strom said will employ between 2,000 and 3,000 students. The federal government Tuesday announced nine programs expected to employ at least 70,000 students across Canada. being planned and the maritime manoeuvres were just a contin* uation of loose military co-operation that has been maintained since 1966. All indications now lead most observers to believe that the French policy of independent national defence based heavily1 on its nuclear strike force will continue, as long as a stable situation exists. Defence Minister Michel Debre has conceded that a common European defence community could be formed at some time, but only in the event of some dangerous threat. Good relations continue and some of the hangover of the 1966 withdrawal remain. The Canadian, government' still claims $10 million for losses when two of its; NATO bases were closed in 1967. The U.S. is seeking $600 million in damages. TO FORM GOVERNMENT - Trygve Bratteli is shown in the Storting, Norway's Parliament, in Oslo after King Olav V asked him to form Norway's first Labor government in 5% years. Ottawa suspends building of Mission, B.C. prison OTTAWA (CP) - Construction of more than $10 million in new federal prison facilities at Mission, B.C., has been suspended and is being completely reviewed. Solicitor-General Jean-Pierre Goyer says this may mean "we will have to live with" British Columbia penitentiary, built in 1878, for some time. In the meantime, some prisoners from B.C. penitentiary have been shifted to Matsqui, B.C., built for drug addicts. The women's wing at Matsqui is empty and will be occupied by male prisoners, officials said today. Construction of the complex, which was to include a $7 mil-lior maximum security prison, began last year with the building of roads. However, a tour of prisons last year by the Commons jus- tice committee, and the advent of a new penitentiaries service administration, put the brakes on the program. INFLEXIBLE DESIGN In January, Mr. Goyer asked the Canadian Correction Association for a report on a new maximum, called Archambault, north of Montreal at Ste. Anne des Plaines. Tlie association reported that the design was inflexible And unadaptable to rehabilitation programs. The Mission prison was to be built on the same blueprint and Mr. Goyer immediately called for a full review.
