Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 Smith's resignation sought 'Good old Smithy' cries die down in Rhodesia IAN (Reuter) Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith is finding that cries of "good old Smithy" from the country's ruling white minority are turning into open calls for his resignation. While the fate of the Anglo-Rhodesian settlement terms proposed last November stil hangs in the balance, the of whites here is hardening against the settlement and the way chosen to test the acceptability of the proposals in Rhodesia. A British offiical commission headed by former high court judge Lord Pearce spent two months here sounding out opinions among the country's five million blacks and whites. The verdict of the Pearce commission, which completed its work in March, is anxiously awaited. Much of the disenchantment being expressed by White Rhodesians against the Smith regime stems from the long, drawn out nature of the settlement negotiations and a growing feeling that the whites will not do as well out of the agreement as they had thought. Many of them initially supported a settlement of the con- Report b EDMONTON (CP) The report of the commission on educational planning, headed by Dr. W. H. Worth, mil be released about mid-June and the provincial government expects it to be a best seller. Education Minister Lou Hynd-man said in the legislature preparations are under way to ensure that the report receives the widest possible seller and that citizens are made aware of its significance. Copies will be sent to all public libraries to associations whose members might not otherwise have access. The report will also be available through direct orders to the Queen's Printer in Edmonton and through major book and department stores in the province. S5 PRICE TAG He said the report will cost to help recover the expense of production. The price is being kept low because the government believes that every citizen who is concerned about the future of education will want to have a copy of the report. The commission was set up two years ago to assess Alberta's educational needs by the year 2000. Mr. Hyndman said the government intends to discuss education, and the Worth report in particular, when the legislature convenes in the contracts awarded EDMONTON (CP) Contracts totalling more than million were awareded Wednesday by the department of highways and' transport for grading and paving of highways in the Edmonton area. A contract totalling was awarded to Staheli Construction Co. Ltd. of Winter-burn for grading 24 miles of, road south of Willow Creek to north of Lafond Creek, about 70 miles east of Edmonton Graham Brothers Contracting of Strome and Simmons Contractors Ltd. of Fort Saskatchewan were awarded a contract for grading eight miles of secondary road near the Edmonton city limits. Included in the contract was grading of four miles of secondary road near Villeneuve. A contract was awarded to M. E. L. Paving Ltd. of Red Deer for paring 20 miles of highway in the Clyde, .Vestlock and Newbrook areas north of Edmonton. Would make fur coats out of dogs PRETORIA, South Africa (Reuter) Van de Sandt de Villiere Smit, who caused an uproar recently by his plans to make fur coats out of dog pelts, .said today lie is considering exporting dogs for slaughter to avoid proposed legislation. The government has promised legislation banning the slaughter of dogs for commercial purposes. "If the government does pass the legislation, then I will simply do as I have kill the dogs outside South Africa, and then bring the skins Smit said. There Is still opposition to the plan, however. He said a Pretoria businessman had offered him to drop the scheme. "But I will go he SACRED SWORD STIRLING, Scotland (AP) -A sword that legend says struck terror into the hearts of English soldiers nearly seven centuries ago was stolen Wednesday for the second time from the national Wallace Monument in Stirling. The Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace, was reputed to have wielded the six-foot sword when his army cut down the English at the "Battle of Stirling Bridj'e in 1297. Scottish students stole he sword 36 years ago. It was found a few months later at the bottom of a stitutional deadlock which began with the former British colony's unilateral declaration of independence in 19G5. What turned many of them against Smith was the realiza- tion that the complex process of testing whether Rhodesians wanted the key pre-condition set by the British the -African majority a chance to say a vo- ciferous "No." The long delay between Smith and British Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home signing the tentative agreement last November and the Pearce com- mission ending its work gave right-wingers time to spread the idea that the settement's terms would lead rapidly to African majority rule. After years of not being taken seriously, the extreme right has organized itself into the United Front party and pledged to en- sure that the interests of white Rhodesians remain paramount. Us meetings draw packed au- diences, in contrast to those of the liberal and multi-racial Centre party, the other main op- ponent of Smith's Rhodesian Front. Given a strong leader, the United Front could seriously threaten the Rhodesian Front's present monopoly on the 50 ropean seats in the Salisbury Parliament. There now are only 16 African seats in the 66-seat assembly. Smith, now In his ninth year of office, has reason to fear the threat from the extreme right. His own party came to power in 1962 as a result of a white back- lash against the liberal policies included framing the 1961 con- stitution which granted the Afri- cans significant political ad- vancement. Both the extreme right party and the liberal Centre party have challenged the government to hold an early election on the settlement issue, apparently in the hope of taking advantage of the situation to pick up a few seats. But the prime minister, who is not required to hold an elec- tion until 1975, has said on sev- eral occasions that there is no chance of an early election and no need for one.

For Furthrv Information Phsno 328-7771 LONDON (Reuter) Winslo Churchill distrusted Charles d Gaulle in 1945 because, iron cally, he regarded the anti-Corn munist French leader as bein to eager to reach agreement with the Soviet Union. And United States Presiden Franklin D. Roosevelt also ha his doubts about de Gaulle's in tentions and was reluctant t give him authority, says a his lory of British foreign policy during the Second World War. The book also quotes Church ill, the war-time British prim minister, as saying in 1945 tha de Gaulle was "the greatest ob stacle the Allies had to face in making good relations wit France and the Western democ racies." Two chapters of the third vol ume of this history of the Sec ond World War are concerns with Anglo-Franco-American re- lations. The author of the work published by the British govern ment's stationery office, is thi British historian Sir Llewellyn Woodward. REFERRED TO TREATY Churchill's remark about de Gaulle was made in the contex of the failure of proposals for the opening of negotiations on a n Anglo-French friendship treaty. The British leader argued in favor of delay, while the French insisted upon work ing out a prior general settle- ment of outstanding questions. Jn a long memo to Anthony Eden (now Lord the then foreign secretary, Churchil asked why Duff Cooper, the British ambassador to France mentioned to de Gaulle the pos- sibility of an Anglo-French pad when the British had decided not to bring up the matter im- mediately. Shortly before this, both Brit- ain and France had concluded separate friendship treaties with the Soviet Union. Befon concluding its treaty with Rus- sia, the French government had let the British foreign office know that it intended to suggest an Anglo-French treaty on simi- lar lines. But it wanted first to reach agreement on a number of subjects relating to the future of post-war Germany and the Middle East. ACTED TOO QUICKLY Churchill, in his memo to Eden, wrote: "It crosses my mind that de Gaulle rushed precipitously into the arms of Russia, and has been, for the last two years, ready to play Russia off against Great Britain, but that, after making an alliance with them, he has been somewhat disap- pointed with the result. In trying to sell us across the counter, he has been rebuffed and he now talks of the 'new menace.' Arctic spills inevitable say Montauans HOUSTON1. Tex. (AP) Oil spills in Arctic waters are inevi- table, a study published here says and the United Slates and Canada should start planning now for means to control them. The report by W. R. and D. L. McLcod of the Montana College of Mineral Science and Technol- ogy was read here at the Off- shore Tecluiology Conference. The studv said it is inevitable that oil will get into Arctic and subarctic waters as a result of ship casualties, by accident, or hy deliberate discharge of spilled oil into the sea. Current U.S. and Canadian plans to develop an oil spill plan for the (treat Lakes should he extended to rover nil Arctic and sub Arctic regions, the report said. BOAC OFFICE BLASTED TEHRAN, Iran (AP) The Tehran office of the British Overseas Airways Corp. was shattered by a bomb explosion oarly Thursday. No one was Hurl. The hlasl damaged Hie fa- cade ol Ihe office and smashed surrounding windows. "Why can you not give him (Duff Cooper) clear instructions that he is not to press for any engagements with France? When France comes, as she will do in due course, and stronger than she is now, all these mat- ters can be raised and settled in an agreeable manner. We are in no hurry about any Anglo- French agreement. If we offer it, we shall be snubbed and blackmailed. If we wait, it will be a happy and permanent union." The third volume shows that Roosevelt totally distrusted de Gaulle's intentions, and refused to agree in advance of the Nor- mandy invasion that the civil administration of liberated France (outside the area of mil- itary operations) should be handed over to de Gaulle's French national committee as the provisional government of France. ,OYS' and YOUT!
