Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI UTHBRIDOI HERALD -, March 31, 1971 Stanfield attacks policy on foreign investment EDMONTON (CP) - Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield Tuesday night attacked the federal government's foreign in- Jordan summit urged CAIRO (Reuter) - Egypt called today for an urgent meeting of the representatives of Arab kings and heads of state to discuss the army-guerrilla crisis in Jordan. The minister of state for foreign affairs, Mohammed Hafez Ismail, conferred with Arab diplomats here today and informed them that the meeting could be held in Cairo or any other Arab capital. Guerrilla chief Yasser Arafat appealed to President Anwar Sadat two days ago to intervene immediately to put an end to "the blood bath to which the Palestinians are being exposed." Egypt condemned Jordanian troops attacks against the commandos and withdrew Egyptian officers from the Arab military observers team in Jordan. The last Arab summit was six months ago. It was held at the initiative of the late president Nasser and ended 10 days of fighting in September between Kong Hussein's forces and the guerrillas. Al Abram says in a report from Amman today that fighting is still raging in Jordan for the fifth day running between commando forces and the Jordan army. Women to vote BERN (Reuter) - A national referendum will be held in Switzerland June 5-6 to seek approval for a new article of the constitution on the protection of man and his natural environment, it was announced Tuesday. Women will take part for the first time since a referendum last February gave them the vote. Be at . . . 426 . 6th Street S. ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS GRAND OPENING Thursday - 9:30 a.m. FREE GIFT - PRIZES vestment policy as "floundering in a sea of ambiguity and confusion." "First of all, (Energy Minister) Joe Greene goes down to Denver and tells the American oil men to get lost," he told the Edmonton East Progressive Conservative Association. "Then, Jean Chretien (northern development minister) goes on a voyage of discovery to Dallas to find them again and tell them they are as welcome as robins in spring." Such inconsistency, he said, cannot maintain the confidece of the voter or investor. "We need foreign investment; but we must be aura that it will respond to Canadian needs." CLASSIFY INDUSTRIES He suggested the government classify industries, "in terms of degree of Canadian control that is necessary to maintain our independence." This might mean the communications sector weald be retained entirely in Canadian hands while in other areas foreign competition would be acceptable. Mr. Stanfield also renewed his attack on government action against unemployment and Inflation: "The Trudeau government set out coldly and deliberately to create large-scale unemployment in this country as part of what was essentially a public relations fight against inflation." The reduction In inflation wee not as great as the government contended and the cost was not worth it. Foreign students policy criticized CALGARY (CP) - The provincial government's absorption with foreign students and "foreing influence" is a potential threat to the autonomy of the university and to academic freedom!, Dr. A. W. R. Carrotb-ers, president of the University of Calgary, said Tuesday. Alberta exports more students than it imports, yet "we, a have nation, are living off the product of foreign graduate schools and question whether we are harboring too many students from have not countries." He told a meeting of the Alberta Alumni Association that Canadian universities could not 4 die in fire in Manitoba ST. LAURENT, Man. (CP) -A woman and four children died early today when fire destroyed their frame home in the village of St. Laurent, 50 miles notrheast of Winnipeg. Dead are Denise Allard, aged 35, and her four children, Jody, 13, Shelley, 9, Fernan, 7 and Harry, three years. FLOODS KILL SEVEN LISBON (Reuter) - At least seven persons were feared drowned Tuesday when the rain-swollen Liro River burst its banks and swept through low-lying areas of Lobito, a town of 25,000 in Portuguese Angola. 32 zyrbyl j Mar31w have developed as they did without foreign scholars. "But who in thie day of neo-Jingoism is standing up and thanking those people for their help?" He also said Canadian universities will expand into the community through extension community through extension programs, open universites and educational television until there are more students off' campus than on. "By 1960 we will have far more people aeeociated with the university through ex< tension programs and the masterful concept of the free university . . . than we will have enrolled as full-time students, "And they won't riot over parking." The government's operating grant to the universities in effect dictates the academic policy, Dr. Carrothers said. "Coupled with other government-determined policies such as the open door and the emphasis on undergraduate and professional training as against graduate studies and research, the universities have remarkably little room to manoeuvre." He told 50 delegates from Alberta's three universites that: "We may be slipping wantonly or recklessly into the assumption that in contemporary times a liberal education should be pursued not in the scholarly repositories of western civilization, not in the classroom, but in the streets . . ."

(CP) - A Vancouver psychiatrist said Tuesday he had examined Dale Merle Nelson and reached the conclusion Nelson was suffering a "disease of the mind." Dr. Robert Hallidiay was testifying as the first witness for the defence in Nelson's non-capital murder trial in British Columbia Supreme Court. He is charged in the deaths of Tracy Wasyk, 7, and Catherine St. Amand, 8, two of eight persons killed last Sept. 5 in the West Creston area of southeastern B.C. Dr. H a 11 i d a y said Nelson showed indications of depression when he examined him in Oakalla Prison and that he had a history of depression, at one time severe enough for treatment. During questioning from defence counsel M. e. Moran, the doctor said Nelson indicated feelings of persecution and rejection, with special difficulties in relationships with females. He said there were indications of strong feelings of hate towards women. Dr. Halliday said Nelson had described instances of hostile and aggressive behavior over the years, usually associated with consumption of alcohol. He concluded by saying there was no formal psychiatric term that could be applied to Nelson's illness, adding the closest term he could apply would be schizoaffective psychosis. Under cross-examination from Crown counsel, Dr. Halliday agreed the accused showed sexual deviations and said it was not uncommon to find sexual deviation or perversion classed as personality disorders rather than diseases of the mind. The doctor also said he believed Nelson went back into a period of incapacity later. The trial continues. Legislature okays hospital services commission hill EDMONTON (CP) - The Al-1 berta legislature Tuesday night gave final approval to three bills, including legislation to establish a hospital  services commission and to merge the departments of health and social development. The opposition Progressive Conservatives voted against both the commission and merger bills on third needing, but were overwhelmed 39 to 8 by the Social Credit majority in the 65-seat House. Social Credit has 55 members and the Conservatives 10. No income raises for farmers OTTAWA (CP) - Farmers should not be guaranteed any annual raises in income, the Commons agriculture committee decided Tuesday. The committee defeated 14-11 an amendment to Bill C-176, legislation designed to organize the marketing of agricultural commodities under a national marketing council, that would have guaranteed farmers yearly income boosts comparable to those received by other organ-teed sectors of the Canadian economy. The amendment, proposed by Jack Horner (PC-Crowfoot), was designed to level the yearly income fluctuations of farmers - "they look like the razor back of an alligator"-Mr. Horner said. "If unions can ask for a six per cent increase each year and receive the government's hod of approval, surely farmers should be entitled to the same advantages," be said. Jerry Pr ingle, (L-Praser Valley East), suggested that writing such an amendment into law would tie the hands of farmers. The fact that the bill would plan and organize the production and marketing efforts of producers would raise I their standard of living in any I event. Caglardi blames courts for welfare fraud wave SURREY, B.C. - Provincial Rehabilitation Minister P. A. Gaglajrdi said Tuesday a province-wide wave of fraud had been brought into the open by the decision of one British Columbia municipality to hire a welfare investigator. He said in an interview that lenient courts deserve much of the blaime for' the "fantastic amount" of fraud in the province, which he,said had Jumped "up to 200 per cent in the last six months." Mr. Gaglardi said the inter-provincial rfaud case which prompted Surrey's action Monday is Just one of many his department knows about. Surrey council decided to hire an investigator after welfare administrator Wally Meraer disclosed a scheme involving four adults with several children who applied for welfare in a number of places in both B.C. and Alberta, then went from place to place collecting money. He said the scheme was uncovered with the aid of Mr. Gaglardi's department, the social development department in Alberta and RCMP in Surrey and Calgary. Mr. Gaglardi called Surrey's Specials Valid Thurs.-Fri.-Sat, Only situation "one of the worst in the province." "There is something wrong there and we know it," he said adding that his department had long felt the municipality's welfare payments were out of line, He went on to criticize the courts for what he called their leniency in such cases. "A man might steal $5,000 from the provincial government in this way and the court gives him two months in jail," he said. He said his department's investigators will continue turning over information to the RCMP for fraud charges. In the Surrey case, one man P. A. GAGLARDI ... too lenient and three women are believed to have travelled together, along with an undetermined number of children, collecting welfare benefits at various times from Calgary, Penticton, B.C., Burnaby, B.C., and Vancouver, as well as Surrey. Mr. Merner said a check of about 110 families on welfare living in motels in the Surrey area had turned up about two dozen involved in some sort of welfare fraud. EXTENSIVE INSURANCE Insurance advisers suggest that a house should be insured for at least 80 per cent of its replacement cost. FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial A Thought 327-4581 Third reading, the last step before royal assent, was also given an interim supply bill which will provide the government with $350 minion to begin operations in the 1*71-78 fiscal year which starts Thursday.

The interim supply bill gives the department one-fourth of the amount of the items set forth hi the estimates and one-half of the H17 million in grants the education department will make to schools In the next fiscal year. AMALGAMATION The amalgamation of the health and social development departments is part of a government reorganization which will result in a new department of the environment, a new department of culture, youth and recreation and elimination of the provincial secretary's department. In other business the House was told there is a tremendous potential in Alberta for commercial fish hatching end trout farming. Hugh Horner (PC-Lac Ste. Anne) made the statement as he sought changes in a bill which will set up a. $10 million industrial development incentives fund aimed at rural areas. Premier Harry Strom has indicated he may announce some changes in cabinet portfolios today. Also expected today is third reading and final approval of a bill to lower the age of majority to 18 from 21.
