Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, March 23, 1973 Trade bargaining expected to be tough By CY FOX BRUSSELS (CP) - The European Common Market is expected to take a tough initial position in its bargaining with Canada over the question of what tariff compensation is owed that country for the trade losses it has suffered through enlargement of the economic community. One expert has mentioned $300 million as the total loss likely to be suffered by Can* dian business in 1973 as a result of Britain's Jan. 1 entry into the Market. But the men who have gone from the community's Brussels headquarters to bargain with the Canadians in Geneva will be arguing that the nine-country trading bloc is giving more con cessions in the area of tariffs on industrial products as part of British entry than are needed to compensate Canada for its loss | of Commonwealth preferential treatment in Britain. This stand against any further compensation is what veteran negotiators call a maximum position -traditional as a bargaining start. WANT LOWER DUTIES The Canadians, along with other cereal-rich countries sent to bargain in Geneva, will be replying with a sort of bill for their alleged trading losses. Under the General Agreement on tariffs and Trade (GATT) they will be seeking lower duties on some products to compensate for the fact that Britain no longer is the Commonwealth trade haven it was before Jan 1. The Geneva bargaining, likely to last intermittently for per haps four months, has wide im plications, not only for Canada's relations with, the Common Market but also for its prospects of future economic and political independence generally. The talks are vital too since they probably will influence the atmosphere which will prevail at the next round of general world tariff bargaining later this year. And any negotiating bitterness at Geneva, may prompt American congressmen to adopt a tougher trade bill this year than otherwise they would do. Two tons of documents were shipped to Geneva from Brus sels to help the Market representatives in their dealings with the Americans. WANT FREE HAND The Canadians, for their part, have long been trying to establish some sort of special permanent relationship with the evolving European giant so as to avoid being forced totally into the American trade orbit by a possible rise in protectionism of what officials here term too much bilateralism. The fear is that striking special deals with particular countries such as Canada would undermine the general multilateral structure of world trade - arrangements such as GATT. The Canadians are reported to have sought regular meetings with the Common Market's council of ministers and its president. This was rejected by the community, and its offer of a less high-level form of consultation has won little if any en thusiasm in Ottawa. Common Market circles say Canada's anxieties about maintaining its independence in North America are sympa thetically understood in Brussels. This is especially the case, it is suggested,, because the mother countries of both Canada's founding language groups - Britain as well as France - now belong to the Market. But whether such ostensible sympathy will be transformed into significant reality is one crucial question that the Geneva bargaining will begin to answer. Svoboda re-elected PRAGUE (Reuter) - President Ludvik Svoboda of Czechoslovakia was re-elected today for another five-year term by the Federal Assembly. Svoboda, 77, was unanimously elected by 341 votes-all the deputies present in both houses. He was the only candidate on I the secret ballot. Eggs aivay Drop three raw eggs from a height of 30 feet and have them land unbroken was the assignment given students at a North Vancouver school. The assignment is part of a teaching technique to promote learning by confronting the class with problems requiring imagination. Caroline Millhouse (left) and Margie Shaughnessy, both 12, used balsa-wood box, marshmallows and a plastic parachute for their successful experiment. Canadian actors (dd director find new esteem Wppomted William Ilutt, actor and an associate director of the Stratford National Theatre, has written in this ; I ory for The Canadian Press his impressions of the five-week, four-country tour of Europe that the company completed .his month. By WILLIAM 1IUTT STRATFORD, Ont. (CP) -For me,, one of the most satisfying nights on tour was the opening in Moscow when the audience accorded King Lear a 9Vfe-minute ovation-a treat actors dream about. And there's the memory of people at other performances crowding towards the stage, actually milling forward in the aisle and shouting up at us in excitement as they applauded. That kind of reception can't help but make a deep impression. A personal memory I treasure is that of the young lady, obviously very affected by the play, who came to my dressing room after the performance, said something to me in Polish and thrust into my hand a silver ring that she had just pulled off her finger. I know I shall probably never see her again, but I'll always remember her impetuous and moving gesture. We learned something important from this tour, namely that the Canadian actor can communicate internationally. We knew we could communicate with our own people, in our own language. But this was something else again. Could we commu nicate our feelings so as to transcend language differences? We discovered that we could and that the Canadian actor can hold his head up proudly on the stages of other countries. Something happened to us as we moved across Europe; call it a growth of self-esteem, not as individuals, but as Canadians. Call it a step towards finding an identity as Canadian artists. Through exposure to other cultures, we discovered what we are not and, in so doing, we went a long way towards the discovery of what we are. /""V SIMPSONS bears Saturday Specials LADIES' SWISS MADE WATCHES Several styles to choose from.

About 15 minutes before her j expected arrival, we learned that Queen Margrethe was returning to see the play a second time. A second bunch of flowers was hurriedly procured and the two official greeters-the Canadian ambassador and I-stood waiting as the big double doors of the theatre were thrown back and the black car rolled up with its royal passengers. As we watched, Queen Margrethe and Queen Ingrid stepped out, very formally, and then turned together and reached back into the car to assist a fragile, elderly lady to the sidewalk. We learned afterwards that she was the queen's lady-in-waiting. A beautiful comment on the natural gra-ciousness of Danish royalty, Graciousness was a commodity we encountered throughout our travels. In Russia, it was a man on the Moscow sub way who led us home. A couple of us had decided to brave the mysteries of the Moscow Metro and were soon completely lost. Eventually, we . were approached by a weary looking man carrying a lunch pail, obviously someone on his way home from work. He spoke English but, not content to direct us to our hotel, he led us there-up and down stairs, through a change of trains, out of the station and along the street to our door. He hesitated tote 11 us where he lived when we asked, but because he was embarrassed at the thought that we might find out how many miles out of his way we had taken him. I had pictured the Russian people as friendly, but reserved. This warm, outgoing man proved otherwise.
