Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, May 10, 1973 THE LETHBR10CI HttAtO 29 Grechko promotion reveals Soviet military influence By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) United States experts on the So- viet Union say the elevation of Marshal Andrei Grechko to the ruling Communist party polit- buro certifies growing military influence on Soviet policy-mak- ing. Kremlinologists in U.S. gov- ernment agencies and associ- ated private "think tanks" have Foreign carriers up share OTTAWA (CP) Foregin air carriers again increased their share of the air charter travel market between Canada and foreign countries in 1972, government statistics show. Statistics Canada figures re- veal that foreign air carriers transported more than 1.2 mil- lion passengers last year com- pared to just over one million in 1971. Canadian carriers transported people, up 12 8 per cent from passengers in 1971. Foreign carriers, however, boosted their total to passengers, a 15.5 per cent in- crease from the year before. The Canadian carriers' share of the market sank to 55 2 per cent from 55.5 per cent in 1971. Canadian operators handled about 58 per cent of the market in 1970. Air Canada expressed con- cern about this trend in the charter field during Canadian Transport Commission hearings last December. High-class crooks hit Prince George PRINCE GEORGE. B.C. (CP) Major crimes are being committed while police are checking drunks. Prince George Mayor Harold Moffat charged this week. The mayor, in his weekly re- port to council, also claimed "a whole wave of high-class criminals" had invaded the north central British Columbia city and suggested the B.C. attorney-general's department organiTe a roving police force for extra protection. He said no one but the police seems to know what is going on. He added if the attorney- general had a relief squad "we might tighten up on the minor things that lead to bigger things." >een studying the situation since the Moscow announce- ment 11 days ago of Grechko's promotion and that of Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko and Yuri V. Andropov chief of the Soviet secret police. Some U.S. officials suggested Defence Minister Grechko's an- to the poHtburo was a reward for long service, in- cluding his support of party twss Leonid Brezhnev's moves toward better relations with the United States. Without dismissing this as- pect, other specialists on So- viet Union view the move with having deeper significance. "Grechko's promotion bears out the theses that military in- fluence is rising at the top So- viet policy-making one intelligence source said. "This influence has increased pre- ceptively during the Brezhnev AIMED AT SECURITY Another Kremlinologist said most Soviet policies "have gone in the direction of meeting what the Russian military considers important for Soviet security." Analysts in ana out of tne American defence estab- ishment contend the Soviet mil- itary can take satisfaction from the first stage of the U.S.-Soviet nuclear-arms-limitation agree- ment signed a year ago. That agreement sharply lim- ited anti-missile systems on Doth sides. But one civilian Kremlinolog- ist said he believes "the pri- mary reason the Russians got interested in the treaty is that they realized the American Safeguard system was several technological jumps ahead of the Russian system, and fihe treaty stopped us from devel- oping a countrywide ABM (anti ballistic missile) de- fence." Meanwhile, as Defence Secre- tary Elliot L. Richardson ob- served in a recent speech, the agreement on offensive weap- ons "can only be viewed as a temporary compact because it leaves the Soviet Union with the right to maintain a substan- tially larger number of inter- continental missiles and to deploy a substantially larger number of submarine-launched missiles than is permitted to the United States. Furthermore, Richardson said, the Soviets enjoy a signifi- cant advantage in the size ol their missiles, which permits the vehicles to carry much big- ger warheads than the U.S. missite can hurl. It is the U.S. technological lead, particularly in multiple warheads and accuracy, that roughly balances off the Soviet Union's advantages in numbers and size, U.S. officials say. But the offensive-weapons agreement allows both sides reedom to improve their weap- ons, and the Soviets have been developing a range of advanced missiles and working to catch up with the U.S. in multiple- warhead technology. The second round of arms- limitation negotiations, now un- der way, is considered critical, because it involves proposals to curb offensive weapons. CHILD ABUSE PRIORITIES MIXED? EDMONTON (CP) The government has its priorities mixed because it introduced amendments to the Child Wel- fare Act providing a fine of for failing to report cases of child abuse, the Alberta Medical Association said this week. Dr. Jean Nelson, speaking for the association as a member of its child health committee, said improvements in the sys- tem would achieve the same results the fine is designed to achieve an increase in the number of cases reported. She said there now is a need for a system through which people who report cases of bat- tering can have faith there will be an adequate investigation and for services to both the child and the parents involved. "So often now it happens that a doctor will report a case of battering, then hear nothing back from the government (the Health and Social Develop- ment Dr. Nelson said there is now no adequate system of preven- tive and supportive help for par- ents or children. PREVENTION "The emphasis should be on prevention, correction and sup- port, not punishment." Tbe association wants gov- ling to set up machinery whereby counselling services can be provided to parent groups as a preventive measure. She said the doctors also want to see provisions to re- move, temporarily, children from homes where necessary in cases of abuse until the par- ents can receive counselling. Doctors should'be involved in setting up such services. Dr. Nelson admitted there Is a greater need for assurances of the Mow-up of reports, as- surances of protection and for the child, and that help will be available for the If such assurances were pro- vided, more cases would be re- ported, she said. rpHERE are lots of ex- cuses for going fishing, but beating the high cost of store food is not one of them. Fishing is like courting; nothing takes the fun out of it faster than adding up the cost in time and dollars. Therefore, the provincial fish and wildlife people ought to be severely censured for go- ing into the economics of fish- ing. But they have done so, with respect to Chain and Police Lakes in Southern Alberta, since research requires pub- licity, it is the duty of this column to pass on the grim news. "This study was undertaken to secure data which would verify the hypothesis that stocked lakes are of an eco- nomic value inasmuch as monies are put into circula- tion, and to justify the divi- sion's stocking program, "Some of the major re- sults, estimated over a pe- riod of 101 days from June 1 to September 9, 1970, showed at Chain Lakes that an esti- mated fishermen spent hours fishing and caught rainbow trout. It also pointed out that these fishermen used vehicles and travelled miles to and from the lake and their fishing equipment, including boats and motors was worth certainly indicating that a large sum of money was being put into circula- tion. "Only trout were har- vested out of an annual stock of 700.000 for a very low re- turni of 11 pei- fa" a month period. For the entire VL.U it be vtay ful that the return would ex- ceed 5 per cent of the fish stocked. At the 5 per cent level the division's cost of each fish caught by anglers is approximately per fish. (Fingerlings at per OCO) or approximately for each fisherman's hour." "The Police Lake survey presented many similarities with that of Chain Lakes. An estimated f i s hermen epent elightJly more hours fishing per fishermen but caught less fish per hour. The number of fishermen per ve- hicle and the average dis- tance travelled to the lake were almost identical. The av- erage value of equipment per fisherman was identical. "It was felt that before the initiation of provincial parks at either of these lakes, they were primarily fishery orien- ted lakes. The fisher- men at Chain Lakes were ac- companied by people for a total of approximately 000 people visiting the lake for fishing purposes. An ad- ditional (44 per cent) people visited the lake for purposes other than fishing. Police Lake, however, had ap- proximately Only 380 people (10 per cent) came to the lake for purposes other than fishing. This seems to indicate that the presence of a provincial park at Chain Lakes is attracting many peo- ple for other forms of recrea- tion other than fishing and it is felt that the percent of this class of people will increase at Police Lake following com- pletion of a provincial park at that site. "Chain Lakes fishermen felt that a day's fishing, not count- ing expenses, was worth and were in favor of an in- crease in licence fees of if this was earmarked for fishery management. Police Lake fishermen valued a day's fishing at and favored a increase in licence fees. These results possibly reflect the attitudes of urb- an vs. rural users of Chain and Police Lakes respective- ly. NoTsales'.' No "free" gas. No hot air.
