Denmark denies first pact j purchase Ibv CDC OTTAWA (CP) Denmark denied Saturday that it is violat- ing any provisions of the Inter- national Commission for the North Atlantic Fisheries agree- ment, saying the Canadian gov- ernment has presented a mis- leading picture of the Danish attitude. The Danish embassy, in a news release, said Denmark has held to the provisions of the 1970 ICNAF agreement with regard to the Greenland salmon fish- ery. Under the agreement, nations participating in the salmon fish- ery were to limit either the catch or the tonnage of vessels involved, to the 1969 limit lev- els. The embassy said Denmark has maintained the tonnage lim- its of its vessels, although the catch has increased 30 per cent. The statement said that al- though, in Denmark's opinion, no evidence has been presented to justify a ban, the government is ready to discuss the mattec at the forthcoming June ICNAF meeting in Washington.

Bv PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Minister of State Pat Mahoney says the federal government now is willing to accept submissions suggesting changes to tax reform legisla- tion dealing with agriculture. Mr. Mahoney, MP for Calgary South, told the House of Com- mons that an interdepartmental committee now has been estab lished made up of agriculture, finance and national revenue of- ficials. The group will receive and study submissions from individ- uals or groups concerned with farming and wanting changes to the new taxation laws. The Calgary MP made the statement following questions by Jack Murta !who reminded the Commons that the government had an- nounced its intention to set up such a group. The Manitoba MP wanted to know when the group would be set up, when it would start ac- cepting submissions, and whether the taxation changes recommended by the group would be made public. Mr. Mahoney indicated that he could not say when possible tax changes might be made public or come into effect since, for all he knew, the group might not even recommend any. However, he stressed that any interested parties could make their views known lo the group either through him or by con- tacting the ministers of other departments involved.

Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The tremendous amount of good, will built up by President Richard Nixon's re- cent visit to China has been ne- gated to a large extent by the president's decision to send American bombers into North Vietnam, Senator Donald Cam- eron found on an extensive trip to China. Twenty four Canadians made the tour including two other sen- ators. They were Senator W. M. Benedickson and Senator Muriel Fergusson. The others were from the alumnae of the Banff School of Advanced Manage- ment. They spent three weeks in the Orient from March 31 to April 21. Among the highlights of the visit to China said Senator Cam- eron in an interview yester- day, were talks with the No. 3 man in that country Chuo Mo- Jo, vice chairman, Standing Committee of the National Peo- ple's Congress and with Li Chang, vice minister, ministry of foreign trade. He met both men in Peking. The visit by President Nixon established a rapport between the people of China and the peo- ple of the United States, said Senator Cameron. It had been a great breakthrough in the cold war. Chuo Mo-Jo welcomed the ini- tiative the president had taken. He said it was a good thing for the two countries and the world in general that there be a dia- logue started again. "However, it was significant to me that Chuo said 'we can only judge Nixon by his actions not by his words and so far his actions arc a direct contradic- tion of his said the sen- ator. He found that the reaction of the Chinese people he talked to was that the despatch by the American government of its bombers into North Vietnam in response to the thrust south of the North Vietnam forces was what they expected from "west- ern Imperialism." He said the Chinese looked on it as a contin- uation of the western attempts to exploit the native peoples in part of the world. "The Chinese you talk to al- ways make a point of saying they are not critical of the American people, just critical of the American government. They always differentiate between the people and the U.S. govern- explained the senator. Wherever the large group of Canadians went in China they found a tremendous reservoir of good will towards Canada. "There is a great feeling of good will and warmth for Cana- dians. It is all traceable to thy good works of the late Dr. Nor- man Bethune. He is a folk hero to the Chinese people, even the small children sing songs about the Canadian doctor." The Canadian group paid their own way and expenses. They were three days in Tokyo meeting with members of the ministry of foreign trade. They discussed the potential for the expansion of trade between Can- ada and Japan. In Hong Kong they had talks with the high commissioner and c V minister resigns Travelaire.

Alhortn NICOSIA CAP) Spyros Kyp- rianou resigned as foreign min- ister of Cyprus today, saying he was forced to quit at the insist- ence of the Greek government. Kyprianou's resignation was a victory for the Greek junta. It sent, a virtual ultimatum to Cyp- riot President Makarios three months ago demanding a re- shuffle of the cabinet and the rtmoval of Kyprianou. In a statement, Kyprianou said that at Thursday's weekly meeting of the council of minis- ters, Makarios "announced his definite decision to reshuffle the government in the first fortnight in June." The presidnil "also made it i clear the reason for the reshuf-' flc of the government is the in- sistence of the government of Athens, which is primarily aimed at the removal of the un- dersigned from the ministry of foreign affairs.11 Kyprianou's statement added. Athens had demanded that Makarios bring into his govern- ment some of his opponents, in- cluding followers of Gen. George Grivas. Grivas wants union of Cyprus with Greece, a policy that Makarios stren- uously opposes. Grivas has re- turned to Cyprus from Athens and there have been reports he is organizing an underground army. Kyprianou. 40. has been for- eign minister since the island became independent in 1960. Informed sources said the Greek junta claimed that in pri- vate contacts with foreign gov- ernments, Kyprianou charged that Greece and Turkey had agreed to impose a settlement of the Cyprus problem against the wines of the people of Cy- prus. The Greek government has denied the existnece of any se- crel agreement with Turkey for the imposition of a settlement.

Again trade be- tween Canada and Hong Kong was discussed and the growth of improved relations between the Far East and the western world. However the main purpose of Ihe tour was to visit China and members of the delegation re- turned entranced by what they had seen. Senator Cameron was amazed by operations they had wit- nessed using anacsthetization by acupuncture. They observed an operation in which a large goiter was removed from a woman's neck. Throughout the operation the woman was con- scious and talked with the doc- tors and waved to the visiting Canadians who watched from a gallery above the operating room. After the operation she imme- diately sat up on the side of the operating table, was assisted to her feet and walked to her hos- pital room. They also witnessed the removal of a tumour from the brain of a man who had been subject to convulsions. The side of his head was opened anil the brain exposed in a four-hour operation while the man was conscious and eating an orange. "It is simply most like black said Senator Cameron still obviously amazed by what they had wit- nessed. Visiting Peking University and Sun Yat Sen University in Canton the group was able to learn more about the training of doctors in China. They graduate doctors after a three years' course. If they wish to special- ize they go on lor two or more years. Those in charge of the courses explained they had been able to ihorten the training by revamp- ing the curriculum and cutting out a great deal of duplication. Doctors conducting the acu- puncture anaesthesia were "very frank and admitted they don't yet fully understand just how it said the senator. That it did work, he was con- vinced after witnessing the op- erations. The three years of chaos dur- ing the cultural revolution how- ever had left some bad effects as well as having some good ef- fects in the Chinese society, he found. The senator had been in China in 190G. On that occasion there had been 50 universities and colleges in Peking, now they have been reduced to 12. The student body at the University of Peking had been reduced from down to Under Chairman Mao's guid- ance an institute of forestry had been moved out of Peking fur- ther north to be located near the forests so tiie students could do practical work. Similariv with a college of agriculture and a petroleum institute1. However the cultural revolu- tion left a deep impaci on the Chinese sociely that will take several years to overcome. Sen- ator Cameron cited as an exam- ple a shortage of translators due in part lo the three year pe- riod when learning had come to a virtual halt. The people of China however are well clad, appear happy and helped make the Canadians' visit an enjoyable one. The group visited factories in Can- ton, Shanghai. Nanking and Pe- king. They visited workers' vil- lages, pensioners' homes and major tourist attractions such as the Forbidden City, the Sum- mer Palace and the Great Wall. to The group spent three days at the Canton Export Commodities j Fair. They also visited the Ta jC'hi Rural" Commune about 15 miles up the Pc-arl Hiver from Peking. Senator Cameron said (lie had noted great progress had i been made in the six years j since he visited China. Ha I was impressed with the dedica- tion and enthusiasm of the Chinese people.
