Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuriday, May 14, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 West Germany Pressing NATO Build Web Chair Japanese Climbers Scale World's Highest Mountain By LIONEL WALSH BONN (Reuters) West Ger- many is pressing NATO to renew and expand its two-year- old offer to negotiate with the Warsaw pact countries on aneed and mutual reductions in eaqh side's armed forces. West German experts are pre- paring ideas on how NATO should go about its approach so these ideas can be submitted by Foreign Minister Walter Scheel at the NATO spring conference in Rome this month. Sources hsre are talking in terms of "strengthening the sig- nal of reference to the NATO foreign ministers conference held in the capital of Russia Backs Cuba By ANDREW TAHNOWSKI HAVANA (Reuters) A Rus- sian naval1 flotilla steamed into the southern Cuban port of Cien Fuegos at the start of a week- long visit today as Premier Fidel Castro was involved in a mounting dispute with the United States. The Soviet demonstration of solidarity fallowed accusations by Castro Wednesday that the United States is involved with counter-revolutionary Cuban ex- iles based in Miami whose gun- boats last week sank two Cuban fishing vessels and captured the'r 11 crew members. The six-vessel Soviet flotilla, including two submarines, a guided-missile destroyer and a rcclcet launching destroyer, is the second Russian naval unit to visit Cuba. Seven Russian ships visited Havana last July. Castro is showing alarm over increased activities by militant Cuban exiles who launched an abortive seaborne invasion in eastern Cuba last month and claimed to have landed another group last week. The Cuban leader said more counter-revolutionary landings are rn preparation and that President Nixon has ordered the Pentagon to recruit and provide equipment for the invaders. He also warned Britain the exiles are using some of the islands in the British Ba- hamas north of Cuba to train guerrillas. West Union Idea Waste Of Time CALGARY (CP) Grant Notely, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party, said here it is a waste of time sug gesting a union of the prairie provinces. The discussed at the One Prairie Province confer ence in Lethbridge smacked o divisive regionalism, he told a news conference. "There is already too greal a regionalizalion taking place "We require a strong federa government and any attempt tacked by six divisions of the lignly-trained East German Na- lonal People's Army. Opposite them is the U.S. Sev- enth Army with seven divisions, West Germany's 12 divisions, a British corps, and French, Dutch, Belgian and Canadian formations. Tourist Group Changes Name CALGARY (CP) The Can- adian Tourist Association has changed its name to the Travel Industry Association of Canada. The change was approved at the annual convention of the 550-member organization. A spokesman for tha associa- tion said the word "tourist1 has a narrow meaning which implies bargain rates while the phrase "travel industry" more accurately represents the or ganization's aims. The association was formed ill 1931 as the Canadian Associa- tion of Tourist and Publicity Bureau, but changed its name to Canadian Tourist Association in 1949. KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) A Japanese expedition con- quered Mount Everest on two consecutive days this week, placing four men atop the world's highest mountain, the Nepal foreign ministry said, today. The ministry, relaying an offi- cial message received from the expedition, said Neomi Uemura, 28, and Teruo Matsura, 35, set foot on the high sum- mit at a.m. Monday. The next day, Katasutossi Hirabayashi, 30, and a Ncpalese Shcrpa guide, Cnot Tare, 39, reached the peak at a.m. The success brought to 25 the number of persons known to have reached the top of Everest in five expeditions. The first persons to reach the top, May 29, 1953, were Sir Ed- mund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa, members of Sir John Hunt's British expedition. Trudeau Hailed As Guf WELLINGTON (CP) Wel- lington's morning newspaper Wednesday hailed, with front- page enthusiasm, the visit of Prime Minister Trudeau, and one girl reporter says that he "caused the ladies to light up like Christmas when he arrived hero. "He's a great says the front-page banner on The Do- minion, as it displays a five-col- umn picture of Mr. Trudeau smiling at some small children. "His 10-m i n u t e chat with well-wishers at the a i r p o r 11 showed the famed Trudeau charm works as well in New Zealand as in Canada." And Stephanie Gray wrote in a separate story that "there were ladies who simpered, la- dies who wore their hearts on their sleeves and ladies whose high hopes were disguised be- neath a veneer of diplomatic immunity." However, she went on to say that she thought reports of Tru- deau being concerned about women "have got him all wrong." The Wellington reporter re- fers to Mr. Trudeau's visit as being "strictly business." In an editorial, The Dominion says that Canada's role in the world is already influential, "and nothing but good can come from an extension of that influ- ence into the Pacific." The presence of Mr. Trudeau in New Zealand "is a welcome indication that British Colum- bia, our main Canadian contact, is not some desperate Pacific country divorced by outlook and situation from a United States and Europe-conscious Ottawa government."

Predict Total Defeat PARIS' (Reuters) North Vietnam warned United States President Nixon today that his administration "cannot avoid total defeat" if it pursues its present action in Indochina. Nguyen Minh Vy, Hanoi's del- ate to the Vietnam peace talks here, said American bombing raids against his coun- try earlier this month had seri- ously jeopardized the peace con- ference. Vy was speaking at the 66th session of the the boycott of last week's scheduled session by Hanoi and the Viet Cong to protest the bombing. He said Nixon's argument that sending U.S. troops into Cambodia will shorten the war in Vietnam is "tantamount to saying hat one must burn the whole street so as to extinguish the fire on one house Jamieson Demies Accusation OTTAWA (CP) Transport Minister Don Jamieson denie( in the Commons that his department is acting as a strike-breaker in the British Columbia towbcat workers strike.
