Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 3t > THE ItTHBRIDGE HIRAID - Wadnatdoy, March 31,Wl - Program to be reached on schedule No change in armed forces cut By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) - Plans to reduce the regular armed forces to 82,000 men appear to have survived a fresh look prompted by the Quebec kidnappings last October. Defence department officials say there has been no change in the program to date, and they are proceeding on the assumption that the fixed, lower level will be reached around March 31, 1973, as scheduled. When the cut was announced by former defence minister Leo Oadieux in September, 1969, the forces were at a strength of 98,000. Mr. Cadieux's successor, Donald Macdonald, said following the callout of troops last October that the plan would be reexamined, though it would not necessarily be revised. About 7,500 troops were assigned to guard duty in Montreal, Quebec and Ottawa in the tense weeks after the kidnappings of British trade envoy James Cross and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte. Mr. Laporte later murdered by his Humphrey goes into training By MICHAEL KRAFT WASHINGTON (Reuter) -After a two-year rest from national political life, Senator Hubert Humphrey is showing signs of preparing to challenge Richard Nixon to a new fight for the U.S. presidency next year. The former Democratic vice-president, who lost out to Nixon in 1968 after failing to isolate himself from the hawkish reputation of president Johnson, has been relatively silent since returning to the Senate last November. But this week the Minnesota senator confirmed he is indeed training for a bid to gain the Democratic party's nomination. Whether he wins that nomination depends on factors outside his control. One is whether Sen-aator Edmund Muskie of Maine, his vice - presidential running mate in 1968, retains his current lead in public opinion polls. Humphrey, 60 in May oldest of potential Democratic candidates, made his former re-entry into lite arena Thursday with a 21-page speech urging the Nixon administration to abandon what he termed its all-or-nothing pos- Rapeseed quotas extended WINNIPEG (CP) - The Canadian wheat board today announced that 20-bushel delivery quotas on rapeseed have been extended to all Prairie shipping blocks. The board also announced further extensions of increased quotas for wheat and barley. The changes all were effective Monday. The wheat increase, to five bushels per quota acre from four, has been extended to Big-gar west. The barley increase, to 30 bushels per quota acre from 20, has been extended to Kamsack and Biggar west. With the changes, in wheat there are 33 blocks on a five-bushel quota and 13 on a four-bushel quota. In barley, there are 43 blocks on a 30-bushel quota and five on a 20-bushel quota. In oats, 43 blocks are on a 20-bushel quota and! five on a 15-bushel quota. All flaxseed points are on an eight-bushel quota, all rye points are on a 12-bushel quota and all soft spring wheat points are on a 15-bushel quota.

Afterwards, he said he is meeting regularly with foreign-policy advisers from the previous administration. He also announced he planned to make major speeches on a number of other topics, including the economy, the Vietnam war, and the race problem. Humphrey is clearly trying to build bridges towards the younger elements in the Democratic party who scorned him in 1968 as being tied too closely to Johnson's Vietnam policies, depriving him of much-needed campaign strength. He said his two years as a university professor in Minnesota and renewed contacts with students gave him an opportunity to reassess his positions. He now feels "we have to reevaluate U.S. roles in the world, our commitments, our treaties, our obligations. That doesn't mean you shed them, it means that you take a good look at them and find out which of them are the more important and which ones would be drawn to an end." He now supports a fixed date for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam and believes American involvement there would have been ended had he been elected president. He also has broken with past policies by voting against the supersonic transport plane, and he appears to be moving into the middle position of other Democratic presidential contenders - Senators Muskie, George McGovern of South Dakota, Harold Hughes of Iowa, and Birch Bayh of Indiana. BREAKS WITH LABOR Senator Henry Jackson of Washington is the only eon-tender from the right wing of the party. In voting against the SST, Humphrey broke with one of his chief backers, George Meany, head of the AITLVCIO. Political observers saw it as another bid to gain support from younger, more liberal members of the party who generally opposed the plane because of its reported effects on the environment. Labor leaders were reported to have been encouraging Humphrey to make a bid for the nomination next year and it was unclear what the effects of his move would have on them. Observers, however, doubted whether they would find a more attractive candidate. A decision on whether to bid for the nomination will be made later this year. abductors, but Mr. Gross was set free. Mr. Macdonald said Canada would find it "enourmously difficult" to accept a new United Nations peacekeeping role, for instance, if a call should come in the prevailing circumstances. Concern has been expressed that Canada is taking serious risks in trimming its forces to 82,000-lowest per-capita force of any country in the Western Alliance except Iceland and Luxembourg-given Canada's military commitments abroad and growing instability at home. But defence department sources insist the forces will remain capable of fulfilling their responsibilities, though the sources concede the forces would be stretched to the limit if ever required to discbarge all commitments at once, especially at a time of domestie strife. Meanwhile, say informed sourcesrthe rundown plan will be kept under continuing review. Perhaps the biggest single $1 million wheal gift for Tunisia TUNIS' (Reuter) - Canada agreed today to supply Tunisia with 14,000 tons of wheat worth $1 million in an accord signed here. This is in addition to the 44,000 tons already assigned to Tunisia in the current agricultural year. There are about 36.6 bushels in a metric ton. make this your vear, You've seen kids from 8 to 80 riding them. Now it's your turn to get in on the fun.

The manpower policy is inextricably linked to a budget freeze imposed two years ago and not due to expire until March 31, 1973. Any substantial reversal of policy, say officials, would require a lifting of the freeze and the government has given no indication it would be prepared to lift it. At the same time, the capacity of Canada's regular armed forces to deal with civil emergencies is being augmented under a plan to train reserve soldiers for support roles. Canada has about 23,000 reservists. Current strength of the regular armed forces is about 89,000. At March 31, 1972, it is expected to be 83,349 and a year later. 82,000. At that point the effective strength will actually be below 81,000 since at any given time the establishment includes more than 1,000 men on retirement leave.
