Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 Till lETHBRIDG! HERALD Wednwdoy, May 13, WO-------------------------------------------------- UN Told It Can Remedy International Insecurity UNITED NATIONS (CP) Canada says the present inter- national insecurity can be rem- edied and that "the UN is an es- sential instrument for that pur- pose." But the effectiveness of the UN is dependent on the will of all its 126 members to use it to its capacity and accepts its obli- gatins, however onerous they may be, a Canadian statement says. Teacher Strike Is Delayed MEDICINE HAT (CP) Last-minute talks between the Alberta Teachers' Association and spokesmen for the Medi- cine Hat rural school board Tuesday night resulted in a mediator being called into con- tract negotiations. The 54 teachers had voted 52 to 2 earlier in the day to strike after rejecting an offer from the trustees, details of which were not released. D. J. Gardner, vice-chairman of the provincial board of in- dustrial relations, will mediate Thursday. The teachers, who look after 900 students in eight schools, had accepted a conciliation board award that would grant them a 6.7-per-cent salary in- crease and payment for uni- versity courses taken while they were employed by the board but it was rejected by the trustees. If the mediation attempt fails, they can go on strike 48 hours after notice is given. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bld0, 338-4095 The statement was handed to Secretary General U Thant Tuesday in response to a re- quest that all members give written comments on the ques- tion of strengthening interna- tional security. The question was raised by the Soviet Union at the last ses- sion of the General Assembly. The assembly debated ter and came to no conclusion. The Canadian statement, handed in as the Security Coun- cil was debating another out- break in Middle East hostilities, dealt with peacekeeping, among other things. "Peace is a process requiring continual adjustments among it said. The UN, there- fore, could not be static. LAW IS BASIS international law must evolve if there is to be international se- curity, "for it provides the framework for orderly and peaceful relations among na- tions." It said it is essential to de- velop agreed procedures under which the UN can construc- tively act to keep the peace. Un action would foster conditions under which peaceful settlement is possible and which "will en- sure that no state will be able to obtain advantages for it- self to the detriment of others.'" Canada is a member of a committee seeking agreement on ways of sending UN ob- server and peacekeeping forces to areas of strife.

Dr. Carl A. Nicole, chief of the state agriculture de- partment's bureau of plant pathology, said the citrus indus- try was hardest hit, with more than in damage. mate UN objective is complete and general disarmament under international control.

Plan Change In Operation Of Hostel CALGARY (CP) A move to put operation of the provin- cial single men's hostel in Cal- gary in the hands of private cnterp rise was announced Tuesday by Social Develop- ment Minister Ray Speaker. He told a Social Credit party nominating meeting that news- paper advertisements soliciting officers to run the hostel will appear by the first week in June. It would be the first in the government's proposal idea of contracting out some social service pro- grams to the private sector as a way of controlling goyarn- ment spending. Mr. Speaker said other pro- grams will be offered to pri- vate groups in the future in a move to keep government out of activities that could be ade- quately handled by the private sector. Mr. Speaker said he hopes the hostel, when operated by the private sector, Will exam- toe the men more closely to de- termine their enrployability and need for medical care and counselling. S. P.

Strikes On U.S. Campuses By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Student strikes and demon- strations have continued to surge and subside on the cam- puses in the United States. At the University of South Caro- lina, 100 persons were arrested during student-police clashes. The arrests Tuesday night at the campus in Columbia, B.C., were made after students threw bottles, bricks and firecrackers at city and state police, backed by troops, who were imposing a 9 p.m. curfew. Law enforcement officials used tear gas and clubbed several students. Two soldiers suffered minor injuries. The student strike information Police Break Up Political Prisoners Release Protest MONTREAL (CP) A planned demonstration calling for release of Quebec "political prisoners" was broken up by hundreds of Montreal riot police before it could begin Tuesday night while supporters of the same cause in Quebec City were allowed to march quietly. Montreal police, outnumber- ing about 400 participants, told the gathering at east-end Craig and Delorimier Streets they were participating in an illegal demonstration and then divided the crowd into several groups with a motorcycle charge. A few windows were broken and objects were hurled at the police as the demonstrators were dispersed about 8 p.m., scheduled starting time for the march. Police said 10 persons were taken to police headquarters for questioning and six were later released. Of the others, three were to be charged and the fourth was still being questioned early this morning. In Quebec City, about 100 demonstrators gathered in a park Ttear the Chateau Fron- tenac Hotel and set out with a heavy police escort et 8 p.m. along a route worked out in co- operation with municipal au- thorities. The group carried picket signs with such slogans as "A b a z with capitalists. One segment which tried to break off from Senate Votes Hate Bill Delay Down OTTAWA (CP) The Senate Tuesday night defeated 40 to 22 a motion by Senator Daniel Lang that the gov- ernment's hate literature bill be referred to the Supreme Court of Canada before proceeding further in Parliament. Senator Lang was the only Liberal to vote against the bill. The legislation, already passed by the Commons, prov- ides a two-year term for advo- cating or promoting genocide. Senator Lang's motion was an amendment to the motion that the bill be given second reading. Debate, however, was ad- journed after the vcte and sec- ond-reading debate will continue today. the pre-arranged route was quickly brought back to Lan- glier Boulevard in the city's lower town. Demonstrations have been Il- legal in Montreal since last fall when city council passed a bylaw following a series of large demonstrations which re- sulted in violence and vandal- ism. Boiirassa Introduces New Cabinet QUEBEC (CP) Premiir Robert Bourassa, who won a landslide victory for his Quebec Liberal party on a platform of administrative efficiency, feder- alism and sound economic poli- cies, Tuesday introduced a cabi- net that relies heavily on busi- nessmen, administrators and federalists. The M-year-old economist-pre- nrier reserved the finance port- folio for himself, and placed the sensitive intergovernmental af- fairs portfolio in the hands of Fcrard D. Levesque, a staunch federalist who also is minister of industry and commerce. Mr. B o u r a s s a, previously elected in the 1966 general elec- tion but without cabinet experi- ence himself, is the youngest premier the province has known. His cabinet, wilh an av- erage age of 41.4 years, has the same distinction. Only four of the 22 ministers have previously served in a cab- inet. Mr. Bourassa dismissed suggestions this is a handicap, telling a news conference that lie sought administrative ability and not parliamentary experi- ence in choosing his ministers. TO SHUFFLE SOON The premier also said he plans to shuffle his cabinet soon, likely in the fall, to lighten the load of five ministers who cany two portfolios. The cabinet includes eight lawyers, two economists, two accountants, an actuary, an en- gineer and three doctors, one a psychiatrist. Four others, with- out specific professional train- ing, have wide administrative experience. Mr, Bourassa named Jean- Noel Lavoie, 42-year-old notary with 10 years parliamentary ex- perience, as Speaker of the new Quebec national assembly. centre at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., reported today that 266 colleges and universi- ties were on strikes of indefinite length.

WELLINGTON (CP) -I Prime Minister Trudeau Vednesday attended state din- ers and luncheons, conferred with New Zealand's cabinet and signed two formal agreements it was a touching evening tribal ceremony he will .proba- jly remember the longest. It was not billed as one of Mr. Trudeau's major appearances when he agreed to drive out to Lower Hutt City, on the out- Idrts of Wellington, and spend a few moments with the Maori ribe. But, as it turned out, it may go down ass the most mov- ing experience of his 19-day Pa- cific tour. It was a mixture of damp-eye emotion and foot-stomping gaiety when Mf. Trudeau was declared by the tribe to be a ko- uki heron n single was to be, brever, a friend of the Maori leople. The seven tribes of Maoris In New are of them in the representatives waiting for Mf. Prudeau when his limousine ar- rived at their meeting place shortly after dark Wednesday. The Maoris, dark-skinned peo- >le who live in New Zealand's society with apparently no dis- crimination, base their historic culture on "goodwill to all men." Still wearing the dark -grey suit of his function-filled day, Mr. Trudeau stepped from his car to be greeted by a sword- melding tribesman who stalked the white visitor with well-re- hearsed vicious gestures. Then he dropped the "sacred stick" at the prime minister's feet. As several hundred spectators watched Mr. Trudeau picked up he stick and at that moment he >ecame s friend. The guest of honor was ush- ered inside the meeting house, where the spokesman for the jroup, an articulate civil serv- ant, told him how the tribe cherishes goodwill, friendship and brotherhood. "When you lifted the sacred stick tonight, it was a most wondrous gift to have given us the friendship of your people. Our people will not for- this day." The spokesman had tears in his eyes when he told Mr. Tru- deau that the Maoris were not an exotic plant, but just a tree that was stripped in the 16th century but, with its roots un- broken, it is growing again. "You are now our said the spokesman. "When your face comes on television now, it will be different for us. We can say 'that's the man who came into our home.' The voice was breaking with emotion. "Welcome, welcome, welcome." Then the prime minister stood before the Maoris and talked to them. When other Canadians asked him about the Maori tribe, he told them, "I will say they are a people who received me as a friend and spoke to me with kindness, brotherhood and wis- dom. And then he told them about Canadian Indians. They, too, have been a stripped tree, he said, but they also kept their roots, and now they are seeking with white to build together a great soci- ety, built on peace, brotherhood and goodwill."
