Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, May 14, 1970 Canada Ignored In Red Version Of War Victory By JOHN' BEST OTTAWA (CP) What na- tional forces were responsible for the downfall of Nazi Ger- many? The magazine Soviet Union Today, published by the Soviet embassy here, offers the follow- ing list: the Red Army, the American, British and French armies, and the forces of the Emropean resistance move- ment. No mention is made of the part played by Canada. This omission stands in strange jux- taposition to the vivid ceremo- nies on Parliament Hill last Fri- day night, attended by both Hate Bill Clears Hurdle OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's hate propaganda bill won second reading in the Se- nate Wednesday by a vote of 39 to 24. Senate Opposition Leader Jacques Flynn said his side would net press for referral of the bill to commit- tee. It is expected to get third reading and passage next-week. A move to have the controver- sial bill sent to the Supreme Court of Canada for an opinion on whether it violates the I960 Bill of Rights was defeated in the Senate Tuesday night. In the vote on second reading, 21 Conservatives were joined by three Liberal senators-Daniel Lang Chesiey Carter and Norman Paterson (Ontarioj-in the vote against the hill. Standing in the 102-seat Se- natetLiberal 59, Conservative 24, Independent 2, Independent Liberal 1, vacant 16. Voting for t he bill were 38 Liberals and Senator Hartland Molson, who lists himself as an independent. The bill already has been passed by the Commons and the decisive Senate vote demolished any threat to it. It has been before Parliament for four years, most of the time in a Senate committee where it was sharply amended before passage last fall. Further amendments by the Commons necessitated its return to the Senate for the current debate. The bill creates three new off- ences in the Criminal Code, out- lawing in general the promotion of hatred against a group identi- fiable by color, race, religion or ethnic origin. Advocacy or pro- motion of genocide also would be a crime. Govt. Limits Housing Plan For Indians Governor-General Michener and Prime Minister Trudcau, com- memorating the cm! oE the Sec- ond World War and the Canadi- ans who lost their lives in the struggle. The current issue of the So- viet magazine commemorates the end of hostilities May 8, 1845, but from a different perspective. In keeping with established Soviet dogma, it pictures the conflict as essentially one be- tween Russia and Germany, and leaves the impression that the role of the Western allies was strictly subsidiary. "The great patriotic war. which the Soviet people had waged for nearly four years against the German Fascist in- vaders, ended in a complete vic- tory for the Soviet Union." says an article b. Soviet Defence Minister Andrei Grechko. Besides Marshal Grechko the i magazine contains memoir-type articles by famous wartime So- viet commanders such as Mar- shal Vasily Sokolovsky, Marshal Alexander Vasilevsky and Mar- shal Georgi Zhukov. The magazine doesn't entirely ignore the contribution of other countries to Germany's defeat. Marshal Matvei Zakharov, So- viet chief of staff, writes: "We remember well and appreciate the contribution made by the peoples of the anti-Hitler coali- tion to the rout of Hitler's war machine." However he adds: "We bore the brunt of the war." Soviet armed forces de- stroyed, took prisoner or routed 507 German divisions and 100 di- visions of Hitler's allies. The other members of the coalition routed 176 divisions. This appraisal is not entirely inconsistent with that of Sir Winston Churchill, who wrote that the Red Army clawed the guts out of Hitler's Wehrmacht. However it overlooks the fact that Britain and the Common- wealth fought Hitler for two years while Russia basked in the false security of the Nazi-So- viet non-aggression pact; the constribution to victory of the Western allied air offensive; and above all the Allied effort against Japan in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. In addition to giving the So- viet version of how the war was won, the magazine offers a tan- talizing glimpse of the cam- paign to rehabilitate Stalin cur- rently under way in the Soviet Union. Marshal Vasilevsky, for inst- ance, cites approvingly the "great nation-wide efforts to provide a reliable economic po- tential to ensure the country's ability to defend herself" that took place during the 1930s under Stalin-he doesn't mention the late dictator by name. He holds that Russia had a "fully modernized army" at the time Hitler attacked. He blames the initial Russian reverses on a miscalculation by the Soviet military command as to the time of the strike, adding how- ever that nany important mea- sures aimed at strengthening the forces had not been fully implemented by the time war OTTAWA fCP) Rising costs and a limited budget have combined to throw off a five- year plan to provide housing for all Canadian Indians, Indian Af- fairs Minister Jean Chretien told the Commons Wednesday. Mr. Chretien said his depart- ment is continuing its efforts to build decent accommodation for Indians but en a more limited priority basis. An announce- ment this week of a project for Indians in Schaffer- ville, Que., he said, was made by the department because the problem there had reached "dramatic" proportions. The issue was raised by Rob- ert Simpson who, while indicating approval cf the announcement, wondered whether similar projects would be started soon in his own prov- ince. He also inquired about the fate of the five-year program. Mr. Chretien answered that housing funds are allocated to each province by the depart- ment in proportion to the num- ber of Indians in each. This account differs from that of former Communist Party First Secretary Nikita Khrush- chev, who in his famous 1955 speech launching a concerted destalinization campaign said Russia started to modernize its military equipment "only on the eve of the war." Opposes Removal Of ROTC Plan MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) Republican congressional can- didate Mongar said here he op- poses removal cf Reserve Of- ficer Training Corps programs from the University of Montana campus. The Missoula Republican said the program serves a use- ful social purpose and has as much right to continued exis- tence on campus as any other department or profession- al school.
