This recipe has several good things cooking for il. It utilizes pork steak with high nutrition and low price, (If your L-Mort meat counter isn't displaying V'j" thick pock steak ask ihe clerk lo cut some.) Another feature of this recipe is Ils flexibility. Ingred- ients can be subslituled (as shown) and increased cooking lime seems only lo improve it.

By Lhis view, clumsy and (u tile efforts were made to isolate Mr. Connally from other mem bcrs of the U.S. administration Mr. Connally was portrayed as virtually the sole source of Can ada-U.S. trade disagreements. fn late February, after the talks had become stalemated senior Canadian officials were reported to have told a group o visiting American reporters anc editors privately that Mr. Con nally was Ihe main barrier to settlement. The new approach heing pen dered is additional lo Ihe agree, ment reached here last month between Prime Minister Tru deau and President Nixon to re> view each country's own bar gaining position with a view to tackling the trade impasso anew. WAIT FOR ELECTIONS But it is based on the assump- tion that nothing substantial can occur until after each country iias completed national elec- tions. The U.S. presidential vote Is next November and a Cana- dian election is expected this year. In any event, there Is an ex. pectation that the first opportU' nity will be taken to start re- moving any ire that Mr. Con- nally may feel toward Canada through what he regards as lack of adequate concessions in ex- change for the devaluation of :he U.S. dollar and helping solve the U.S. trade imbalance. It is suggested that the Cana- dian approach in the past over estimated State Secretary Wil- liam Rogers' influence as a Ca- nadian ally. It is also suggested that Mr. Connally could move on to become stale secretary after the U.S. election and per laps even run for the Americas residency in 1970. Personal meetings with him Trade surplus loivest OTTAWA (CP) Canada's merchandise trade surplus for the first quarter of this year was million, the lowest since the second quarter of 1969. Statistics Canada reported Wednesday (hat imports for tho "irst quarter were S4.21 billion, ;ip from billion a year ear- lier. Last month it reported that exports in the first quarter were billion, up from S4.06 bit- "ion. Canada's trade s M r p 1 u s e s lave been declining since readi- ng a peak of S947 million in the ast quarter of 1970. The surplus or the last Quarter of 1971 was million. Export growth has 10! kept pace with increasing "mports. The latest decline came as Canadian exporters were begin- ning to face increased competi- ion from American mestic intemalional sales cor- benefit from J.S. tax exemptions. The recent federal budget contained substantial tax cuts or Canadian manufacturers, lartly with a view to helping hem increase their competitive ability in world markets. Finance Minister Turner's budget speech said increasing consumer demand In Canada will continue to produce in- creases in imports and a decline in the trade surplus. GAP NAKROWED Wea' j --day's import figures show tuat the gap between cx- i ports and imports narrowed considerably during March. Im- ports for that month were billion and exports SI.530 billion. Almost all countries shared in C a n a d a 's increased imports. Imports from (lie U.S. lor March were billion, up from billion n year ear- lier. Japanese goods showed the greatest increase, jumping to million from million. For Ihe full quarter, Imports from the U.S. were up lo J2.91 billion from billion, while those from Japan rose lo ?246.9 million from million. Canada's (o Japan have been declining and Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pcpin re- cently led n trade mission there lo Iry to open new markets for Canadian goods. Imports from Urilain were million during March, up from million a year npo, and million for the quarter, up from million. In terms of commodities, most of the increase in imports came in f i n i s h c d products, which rose lo a quarterly lolal of billion from hil- lion. Much of the increase in end products came in auto parts, which Increased to million in the first, quarter of Ihis year from million in the first quarter of last year. j would have to he free from pub- licity and ils resulting political pressure, it is suggested. A good opportunity would be an inter- national meeting on another i.'isut1, (tin-ing which Canadian represenlaiives could meet. Mr Connnlly informally. The May 21-20 meeting of Iho Organization for Economic Co- operation a n d Development Early Canada-U.S. deal involved belt, medallion OTTAWA (CP) One of Can- here with his wife and young ada's first deals with the United I son from the hand's reserve on banks of the Minimiclii States was the trade of a wam- pum belt for a pewter medallion enscribed with the effigy of General George Washington, first leader of (he American revolutionary government. The two-inch medallion was presented lo New Brunswick's Mic Mac Indians almost two centuries ago when a peace treaty was concluded between the tribe and General Washing- Ion's administration. That medallion left the pos- session of the Indians for the first time Wednesday and was placed in the care of the Public Archives of Canada. Chief Michael Gimush, elected head of the Eel Ground Band living near Newcastle, N.13., drew the tarnished relic from a batlcred cardboard box and for- mally turned it over to the ar- cliives for studv and safekeep- ing. The medallion remains the property of the 333-member band but is lo be held "oa per- manent loan" by the archives. Ihe Iliver, said the medallion's his-lj torical value was important to the Mic Macs and be did not want to risk its loss. He said Iho medallion was worn regularly only Iwo years ago by one of Iho band members. An archives official said the medallion, probably originally presented sometime between 1776 and 17711, was the oldest discovered George Washington medallion. Such diplomatic trades were common between the young U.S. government and its Indian constituents, he said, and the treaty signed wilh the New Brunswick Mic Macs siiows lhal neither parly then recognized a houndarv between Maine and the British colony. At that time llie area was part cf Nova Sco- tia.

Hut even with heller personal relations established, the divi sive issues would remain. It is believed thai the best hope for settling these is pa- tience. With Ihe elections over, both sides would be under less pressure in their negotiating, postures. The passage of more lime mighl allow new factors lo emerge assisting a balanced compromise. These might range from a change in trade patterns lo emergence of a new issue on which one side could make concessions lo win its case on existing issues. Generally, Canadian negotia- tors have sought as little change as possible from the status quo, while the Americans bavo sought substantial revisions. They say Canada is running a heavy current trade surplus with the U.S. and should make some effort lo reduce it. Canada argues thai Ihe Irade surplus is a recent development, following more lhan a decade of deficits, and that other financial transactions between the two countries cut the surplus sub- stantially. Other points of disagreement are the 1935 Canada-US, auto pact, wliich the U.S. would like broadened to full free trade. There are miscellaneous mat- ters such as Canadian restric- tions on the value of goods Ca- nadian tourists can bring home from the U.S., and a Canadian surplus in arms trade. News media gels message IJANKF C P Senator Kcilli Davcy says he Ijclievcs Lilt1 news jiic-uia gol ;HL-J atfe following his special senate committee report in I'J70 on Iho mass media. Now (he question Is what's goiiiK lo done about it, tlio chairman of the commitlee told a religious news convention. Tlie senator said it was un- likely that "leadership for change" would come from media owners because they have indicated they are satis- fied with the present system. Seventy per cent of the Cana- dian newspapers were group- owned along a high per- centage of television and radio. He added there was "depress- ing regularity of joint owner- ship" of newspapers and the electronic media. Senator Davcy said the "monopoly rip-off" of the large group-owned newspapers is "not (hat they arc charging too much but ralher they arc spending to Hide." Journalists are working for less than annually and often with high education train- ing, he said. journalists, hu smii, "mu.-iL surely establish their own pro- fessional standards" like many oilier professions and trades have done.
