Cool) Moist To Continue Not too much improvement can be anticipated in the LeUi- bridge and district weather scene for the next two days, as a cold, moist pressure system over the north western United States continues to drop inter- mittent snow and rain showers on southern Alberta. Lelhbridge has received .25 of an inch of precipitation to date. Daytime temperatures arc expected to he near 40 de- grees, dropping to 30 overnight. Winds will be light. Meanwhile poinls north of Edmonton remain uninfluenced by the front, with Grand Prai- rie, Fort Nelson and the Peace River district forecasting highs today of 65-70 degrees. to impose financial restrictions on President Nixon's military moves in Southeast Asia. The amendment by Senators John Sherman Cooper Rep. Ky. and Frank Church Dem. Idaho was added to the For- eign Military Sales Act, which provides finahacial assitance for countries seeking to pur- chase American arms. The amendment would block funds for retaining U.S. forces in Cambodia, whether ground, air or naval; ban U.S. payment for Americans or other mili- tary instructors, advisers or mercenaries in support of the Cambodian government, and bah U.S. financing of air ac- tivities in support on Cambodi- an troops. Even if the amendment clears the Senate and is ac- cepted by the House, it appears doubtful it would become law before Nixon's June 3 target date for withdrawing U.S. troops from Cambodia.

Papers Back On Streets This Week VANCOUVER (CP) Van- couver's two daily newspapers are expected back on the streets Friday. Pacific Press Ltd., which produces the morning Province and the evening Sim, Monday ratified a contract with its five employee unions and said it will resume publication Friday, ex- actly three months from the date publication was suspended. The unions, representing employees, voted to accept the new three-year agreement in separate meetings Sunday.. A number of employees reported for work Monday and all will be back on the job no later than the first publication day. The contract package, worked out by Pen Baskin and Alistair Pollock of the British Columbia mediation commission, calls for an increase of .43 cents an hour in each year of the contract'for members of the four mechani- cal unions and key classifica- tions in the Vancouver-New Westminster Newspaper Guild. For other classifications in the guildj which represents edi- torial and other non-mechanical employees, the increase will be either a week or 9.5 per cent of the weekly wage rate at the time of the shutdown, whichever is the greater. The key classification covers senior reporters in editorial and corresponding employees i n other departments. The pre- vious rate for senior reporters was Trudeau Receives Warm Welcome WELLINGTON (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau offi- cially began his Pacific tour Tuesday when he arrived in New Zealand and told an enthu- siastic airport audience here that he wants to talk about how ths institutions of countries such as Canada and New Zealand can be adapted to the chal- lenges of tomorrow. Prime Minister Keith Holyoake at his side, and facing a heavy sprinkling of Canadian flags, Mr. Trudeau said that a main purpose of this three-day visit to New Zealand is to dis- cuss ways in which the institu- tions of the two countries can best meet new challenges. "This is only the beginning" he said; to applause. "I hope there will be many other ex- changes." Mr. Holyoake told the. 150 peo- ple crowded into the Wellington airport terminal that he was "absolutely excited that he. (Mr. Trudeau) has at long last come to see us down here in the South Pacific." Mr. Trudeau said Canada and her sister members of the Com- monwealth were much closer now in the jet age. The remark brought a burst of laughter be- cause the prime minister and his entourage had just stepped from four DC-3 aircraft of the Royal New Zealand Air Force, which had all been built prior to 1946. JEV TOO BIG The Canadian Forces 707 jetli- ner which had carried the Cana- dian leader from Hawaii Tues- day on a non-slop flight was too big for Wellington's short runways and had to land at an air force base. The Cana- dians transferred to lire old twin-engine pUnes for a 50-mln- ute flight to the New Zealand capital. After Hawaii's 80-degree tem- peratures, Mr. Trudeau stepped from his aircraft here into chilly 58-degree weather of New Zealand's fall. But despite a light suit, and no topcoat, he stayed on the tarmac for 20 minutes talking with members of the diplomatic community, government officials, and the 75 member Canada-New Zea- land Society, some of whom are natives of Canada. "My mother sends me all the books about said one lady. "They are not he replied. The Canadian prime minister appeared delighted with the welcoming committee, -and he moved through the crowd with the hand-shaking enthusiasm usually associated with election campaigns. A quiet evening at Govern- ment House awaited Mr. Tru- deau following the welcoming ceremonies. In the last two days he had spent some 22 hours in the air travelling from Ottawa, and a heavy schedule was ahead Wednesday. WORKS ON PLANE Even his time on the aircraft was busy much of the time as he waded through paper work in the privacy of his cabin- usually dressed in a polo shirt and light slacks. For his arrival here lie changed to a light brown suit, and after he arrived at UK air force base he broke his schedule briefly to talk with about 150 people who stood belu'nd a guard rail. He said Cambodian army troops, with the help of Viet- namese bombers, recaptured Takeo, a provincial capital 50 miles south of Phnom Penh, Monday. Ky said his country's forces may stay in Cambodia for an extended period of time, even "if the Americans decide to withdraw logistical support for our troops." President Nixon said last week all troops, in- cluding advisers, be out of Cainbodia by the eiid of June. The addition of the third U.S. carrier increases the number of 7th Fleet warplanes available from roughly 150 to more than 200. BUILD NEW BASES Informed sources said North V i e t n a m ese and Viet Cong forces are setting up new bases deeper in Cambodia following the U.S. and South Vietnamese offensive that has killed more than U.S. taken huge war stockpiles. But they warned of possible counter-attacks. 'They are floating away in their old guerrilla said one field general. "Some of them may still be there, but just evading us." About U.S. troops and South Vietnamese met little resistance today as the of- fensive rounded out its second week. Headquarters said 88 H.g. and 340 South Vietnamese troops have been killed and 319 Ameri- cans and South Vietnam- ese wounded in the action so far.
