Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta I _ THI IfTHBBIBfi! HEKMB Wsdnwday, Mny 13, WO Soviet Missile Buildup Poses Serious Danger To U.S. WASHINGTON (Keillors) -Defence Secretary Melvin li. Laird said today a. record Soviet missile buildup during the last five years has raised a serious q'jest'ion about tire future of United Stales forces. He said the buildup has reached a point where there is reason to wonder what the Soviet goal is. Laird, testifying before armed services commil-tee, also said that failure of the United States to RO ahead with the Safeguard anti-ballistic missile system might encourage the Russians to intensify the and build on their nuclear weapon strength. Laird said advances in Soviet missile deployments and technology "could threaten the sur-vivabilily of our missiles and bombers." He urged the committee to approve President Nixon's plans to expand two Safeguard siles at Malmstrom, Mont., and Grand Forks, Congress last year, and to start work at a third base at Whiteman, Mo., in Ihe coming financial year. The adminislration is asking for a total of project, which is eventually expected to cost excluding the cost of nuclear warheads when Ihe 12-sitc project is completed. MELVIN LAIRD Lacks Safeguard Union Plan Bared OTTAWA (CP) Growing numbers of Canadian workers are going to be organized within multi-national unions to avoid "victimization" by world-wide corporations seeking to rational- ize their operations, Labor Min- ister Bryce Mackasey predicted Tuesday. Mr. Mackasey noted as an ex- ample of such rationalization the announced closing of a Dun- lop Tire Corp. plant in Toronto involving the layoff of close to 500 workers. Dunlop headquarters in Lon- don have explained that the electrical goods plant was being closed because of inadequate profits. The issue has aroused protests among English trade unionists. Appearing before the Com- mons labor committee, Mr. Mackasey refused to reassure uneasy members that the gov- ernment plans any new legisla- tive restrictions on the role of international unions in Canada. He told Rene Emard (L- Montreal Vaudreuil) that many of the international unions in Canada, all with their headquar- ters in the U.S., have shown greater sensitivity to the issue of bilingualism and bicultural- ism than some strictly Canadian unions. Instructors Reject Govt. Pay Offer CALGARY (CP) Instruct- ors at the Southern Alberta In- stitute of Technology voted un- animously here to reject all government pay offers unless salary standards are made equal. "As far as we are concerned negotiations are at an one instructor said after the vote. The instructors agreed to wait two weeks for a negotiating team to present salary propo- sals to other technical institute staff in the province before tak- ing further action. Wage disparities and working conditions of more than in- structors at Alberta technical institutes and junior colleges were to be discussed at a meet- ing early this week of provin- cial government and civil ser- vice association officials. The instructors have threat- ened to walk off their jobs if not satisfied with the govern- ment's final position. The Northern Alberta Insti- tute of Technology at Edmon- ton has about 500 instructors, the. Southern Alberta Institute about 400 and the province's ju- nior colleges aboul 200. The talks also affecl teachers in the provincial correspo n d e n c c course branch. Fire Bomber Calls Judge 'Puppet' OTTAWA (CP) Patrick Sayers, 26, who tried to set off a fire bomb in Parliament's Centre Block, was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months in jail after calling the judge a "fas- cist puppet." Sayers, an Ojibway Indian from Sault Ste. Marie, Out., pleaded guilty to a charge of creating a public nuisance. He then said he was improperly represented in court and "didn't have a chance to give niv side cf if Sayers was arrested April 8 when a bottle containing in- flammable liquid was dropped in a Central Block stairwell.
