-Thursday, May 11, 1975 THE IETHBRIDOI HERAID 25 Canada ponders new approach to trade talks OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment appears to be pondering a new approach to the trade disa- greements with the U.S. The change of strategy centres on John C o n n a 11 y, American treasury secretary who has been a key figure in shaping policy since the U.S. de- clared all-out war on its interna- tional payments deficits last Aug. 15. The situation, as seen by at least one top-level source here, ROOF RESCUE Rev. John Graf, 38, holds year-old Freddy Lawson and coaxes the boy's mother, Mory lawson, from the fifth-storey roof of a downtown building, where she had been threatening to jump for an hour. The minister grabbed the woman when she reach- ed out to the boy, Patrolman Chris Parks helped talk ths woman, despondent over marital problems, out of jumping. WHAT'S IN STORE By Lois McLean Davis Traditionally, seeding lime In Alberta has been May 24. Luckily, this now follows N.H.L. play-off games. Nol until the ice-cube hos melted in the Stanley Cup is a hockey slick exchanged for a hoe and the puck for a packet of seeds. When the League is expanded and the schedule lengthen- ed, will seeding time be advanced too? Would you believe Dominion Day for planting? THE TIMES ARE CHANGING An overtime period of sunshine has been awarded Daylight Saving Time. I plan to re-institute M.S.T. Meal Saving Time. This requires no of your clock. The aim is quick-fix meuls to allow you more time outside. M.S.T. SUGGESTIONS Oddly enough, outdoor work or play only increases ap- petites at a time when the cook-cum gardener is busiest outside. My favorite solution for this is BUSY DAY PORK AND NOODLE CASSEROLE. This recipe has several good things cooking for it. It utilizes pork steak with high nutrition and low price, (If your L-Mort meat counter isn't displaying Vi" thick pork sfeak ask the clerk to cut some.) Another feature of this recipe is its flexibility, ingred- ients can be substituted (as shown) and increased cooking time seems only to improve it. BUSY DAY PORK AND NOODLE CASSEROLE Yield 3 servings Baking time 1 hour (or more) Preparation time 20 minutes 3 pork steaks thick) 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. prepared mustard 2 cups cocked noodles 1 can cream celery, mushroom 1 cup water 1 tbsp. chopped onion Brown pork steaks. Season with salt and mustard. Put the seasoned steaks into the ccsserole. Brown onion, odd the soup and water. Simmer a few minutes. Add cooked noodles to meat- in casserole. Pour onion, soup and water gravy over the top. Cook for one hour at 350 degrees. P.S.T.-PIE SAVING TIME A long lime standard North American dessert Is pie. Al- though some would slice it out of ihe menu it remains a favorite with big-as-all-outdoors appetites. 'Easy as pic' is this recipe. Make up the batch, roll out the shells and slore them in the freezer. (Plastic lids of ice cream containers or foil pie plates can be used.) One of the advantages of this 'mass production' is that the 'mess production' is the same for one pie as many. Pre- pared pie shells in the freezer are a wedge in your meal pre- parotion time. Save on the cost here, too. Try Sweetheart vitamin en- richel flour 20 Ibs. for at L-Mart. This is o great product at the right price. NEVER FAIL PIE PASTRY Yield 14 large shells 6 cups of flour 1 tsp, baking powder 1 tsp. salt 3 tsps. brown 1 Ib. lard 1 egg (slightly beaten) 1 tbsp. vinegar water enough to make 3i cup. Combine dry ingredients, work In lard until a handfull holds its shape. Add tho liquids which have been mixed to- gether. Roll an apple-sized gob at a time on a floured board. Store the shells in the freezer. For a golden glaze, brush tho top of filled pies with: 1 tsp. white sugar 1 tsp. canned milk Cut a design, or 'pul on a happy face' in the top crust and bakn it.

By this view, clumsy and fu- tile efforts were made to isolate Mr. Connally from other mem- bers of the U.S. administration. Mr. Connally was portrayed as virtually the sole source of Can- ada-U.S. trade disagreements. In late February, after the talks had become stalemated, senior Canadian officials were reported to have told a group visiting American reporters and editors privately that Mr. Con- nally was the main barrier to settlement. The new approach being pon- dered is additional to the agree- ment reached here last month between Prime Minister Trir 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 lias 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 the 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 state secretary after the U.S. election and per- haps even run for the American presidency in 1976. Personal meetings with him surplus lowest 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 that imports for tho first quarter were ?4.21 billion, up from billion a year ear- lier. Last month it reported that exports in the first quarter were billion, up from bil- lion. Canada's trade surpluses have been declining since reach ing a peak of million in the last quarter of 1970. The surplus for the last quarter of 1971 was million. Export growth has not kept pace with increasing imports. The latest decline came as Canadian exporters were begin ning to face increased competl tion from American mestic international sales cor- benefit from U.S. tax exemptions. The recent federal budget contained substantial tax cuts for Canadian manufacturers, partly with a view to helping them increase their competitive ability in world markets. Finance Minister Turner's budget speech said increasing consumer demand in Canada will continue to produce creases in imports and a decline in the trade surplus. GAP NAHROWED Weci' i import figures show tliat the gap between ex- ports and imports narrowed considerably during March. Im- ports for that month were SI.513 billion and exports S1.538 billion. Almost all countries shared in C a n a d a 's increased imports. Imports from the U.S. for March were billion, up from billion a year ear- lier. Japanese goods showed the greatest increase, jumping (o million from million. For Uie full quarter, imports from the U.S. were up to billion from billion, while those from Japan rose to million from million. Canada's exports to Japan have been declining and Trade Minister Jean-Luc Tcpin re- cently led a trade mission there to try to open new markets for Canadian goods. Imports from Rritain were million during March, up from million a year ago, and million for the quarter, up from million. In torms of commodities, most of the increase in imports came in finished products, which rose to a quarterly total of billion from bil- lion. Much of the increase in end products came in auto parts, which increased to million in the first quarter of this year from million in the first quarter of last year. would have to be free from pub- licity and its resulting political pressure, it is suggested. A good opportunity wouid be an inter- national meeting on another issue, during which Canadian representatives could meet Mr Connully informally. The May 24-26 meeting of tho Organization for Economic Co- operation a n d Development Early Canada-U.S. deal involved belt, medallion OTTAWA (CP) One of Can- ada's first deals with the United 1 States was the trade of a warn- pum belt for a pewter medallion enscribed with the effigy of General George Washington, first leader of the American revolutionary government. The two-inch medallion was presented to New Brunswick's Mic Mac Indians almost two centuries ago when a peace treaty was concluded between the tribe and General Washing- ton'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 Ginnish, elected head of the Eel Ground Band living near Newcastle, N.B., drew the tarnished relic from a battered cardboard box and for- mally turned it over to the ar- cluves for study and safekeep- ing. The medallion remains the property of the 333-member band but is to be held "on per- manent loan" by the archives. Chief Ginnish, who travelled i here with his wife and young son from the hand's reserve on the banks of the Miramichi Kiver, said the medallion's his- torical value was important to the Mic Macs and he did not want to risk its loss. He said the medallion was worn regularly only two years ago by one of tho band members. An archives official said the medallion, probably originally presented sometime between 1776 and 1778, 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 with the New Brunswick Mic Macs shows that neither party then recognized a boundary between Maine and the British colony. At that time the area was part of Nova Sco- tia. PUPIL-TEACHER RATIO Schools in England and Wales have just under 23 pupils to every teacher. may provide such an opportu- nity. But even with better personal relations established, the divi- sive issues would remain. It is believed that the best hope for settling these is pa- tience. With the elections over, both sides would be under less pressure in their negotiating postures. The passage of more time might allow new factors to emerge assisting a balanced compromise. These might range from a change in trade patterns to emergence of a new issue on which one side could make concessions to win its case on existing issues. Generally, Canadian negotia- tors l-.ave sought as little change as possible from the status quo, while the Americans have sought substantial revisions. They say Canada is running a heavy current trade surplus with the U.S. and should make some effort to reduce it. Canada argues that the trade surplus is a recent development, following more than a decade of deficits, and that other financial transactions between the two countries cut the surplus sub- stantially. Other points of disagreement are the 1955 Canada-U.S. 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 gets message IJANKF C P Senator Keith Davcy says he believes tile news nic-uia got the mil- age following his special senate committee report in 1970 on the mass media. Now the question is what's going to be done about it, the chairman of the committee told a religious news convention. The 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 with 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 Davey said the "monopoly rip-off" of the large group-owned newspapers is "not that they are charging too much but rather they are spending to little." Journalists are working for less than annually and often with high education ing, he said. Journalists, he jjiiiu, "must surely establish their own pro- fessional standards" like many other professions and trades have done. 9 LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSiTER AGENCIES LTD.
