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 lie knew, the group might not even recommend any.

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 (our Canadians marie 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 Cliina and the peo- ple of the United States, said Senator Cameron. It had 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 lo 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 ol 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 lo al- ways make a point of saying they are not critical of the American people, just critical ol 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 the 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. tn Hong Kong they had talks wilh the high commissioner and net with members of the Board 1 Trade there. Again trade bc- ween Canada and Hong Kong was discussed and the growth of mproved relations between the 'ar East and the western vorld. However the main purpose of he lour was to visit China and nembers of the delegation re- .urned entranced by what they had seen. Senator Cameron was amazed jy operations they had wit- nessed using anaesthetizalion jy acupuncture. They observed an operation in which a large [oiler 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 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 hail been subject to convulsions. The side of his head was opened and 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 Uiey had wit- nessed. Visiting Peking University and Sun Yat Sen University in Canton the group was able to learn more about the training o[ doctors in China. They graduate doctors after a three years' course. If (hey wish to special- ize they go on for two or more years. Those in charge of the courses explained they had been able to ihorten the training by revamp- ng the curriculum and culling out a great deal of duplication. Doctors conducting the acu- puncture anaesthesia were 'very frank and admitted they don't yet fully understand just inw it said the senator, Thai it did work, he was con- vinced after witnessing Die 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- fccti in the Cliinese 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.

NICOSIA f API Spyros Kyp- rianou re-signed 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 monlhs ago demanding a re- shuffle of the cabinet and the rtmoval of Kyprianou. In a slalomrnl. Kyprianou said that al Thursday's weekly meeting of Ihe council of minis- ters, Makarios "announced his definite decision In reshuffle the govcnimcnl in the first fortnight in June."

Kyprianou's statemenl 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 I960. Informed sources said the Greek junta claimed that in pri- vate coutacls with foreign gov- ernments. Kyprianou charged that Greece and Turkey had agreed to impose a settlement of tlie Cyprus problem against the wihes 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. Thnrn's nn limil lo summer, fall nnd winter fun Trnvnlnirc.
