Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 TH! LFTHBRIDGB HERAID Friday, Moy 15, 1970 Union Leaders In U.S. Against Canadian Split EDMONTON (CP) United Slates union leaders would de- plors any move to separate the Canadian sections of their inter- national unions, Bert Mac- Namara, director of the Wiscon- sin-Illinois district of the United Steelnwkers of American, said Thursday. In a speech to 300 delegates attending the Steelworkers Ca- nadian policy conference, he said he sympathizes with the principle of more autonomy for Canadian sections of U.S.-based unions. But he opposes1 total separa- tion, which arises out of out- moded nationalism and would destroy internalional unionism. Mr. MacNamara said if it were "just n matter of dollars and cents" the U.S. headquar- ters of the U.S. Steel- workers would welcome the de- parture of the Canadian section. He noted Canadian Steel- worker strikes last year cost the international more than with only about of this total coming from Canadians. "But other considerations out- weigh that." HAS UNIQUE VALUE One was. the unique value of the North American trade union only interna- tional labor movement in the Early Education Program Need Stressed At Hearing EDMONTON (CP) Th Worth Education Commission ending three days of publi hearings, was told Thursda there is a need for early educa tion programs in Alberta.

Heulher, 24 year president of United Auto Workers, and his May.

Several UAW local unions across the country arranged for closed-circuit television and an- nounced membership meetings to coincide with the funeral, which meant closing plants where they worked. All Canadian and U.S. plants nf General Motors, Ford, Chrys- ler and American Motors, and tome of the aerospace and agri- cultural implement Industries, already had arranged to shut down for three minutes of si- lence In Reuther's memory.

The council said five year- olds, who cannot enter Grade 1 unless their sixth birthdays fall halfway through the school year, have a great potential for learning. The women, in a brief, rec- ommended volunteers, where possible, be used to assist in pre school programs because they are in a unique position to hear the needs, problems and aspirations of the community. Earlier, (he voice of Alberta Native Women's Society called for establishment of kindergar- ten and nursery school pro- grams in all Indian reserva- tions and Metis colonies. The society said native chil- dren start school with many handicaps, one of the most not- able being language, and pre- school framing would give thorn a head start. They also urged Indian his- tory sections of textbooks be replaced with "factual Indian listory" based on consultations with the province's native people. The commission, established jy the province in September :o study educational planning 'or tht next 30 years, was told Alberta is behind all other jrovinces in library support. Alberta library support is 38 cents a person compared with il.71 in Newfoundland which eads all provinces, said Sarah teed, director of the Univers- ty of Alberta school of library :cience. The Library Association of Alberta urged public library a time when business Is becoming increasingly inter- national. The other benefit was pliilo sophical. Canadian Steclworker leaders such as director Bil M.ihoney contributed a broac socialist outlook at internationa' meetings where U.S. union lead- ers tended to take a short-term pragmatic approach. "Perhaps we need you more than you need Mr, Mac- Namara said. Steelworker settlements reached in Canada after lengthy strikes in 1969 will have "impor- tant repercussions" in U.S. ne- gotiations. Workers at the Steel Co. of Canada won the highest hourly rates being paid to miners North America, paving the way for large increases for the U.S. Steelworkers who enter bargaining in 1971. HIT DRUG INDUSTRY Earlier Thursday, delegates passed resolutions calling for a public take-over of the drug in- dustry and for legislation to make pollution-control equip- ment compulsory for all pollut- ing industries. They gave unanimous ap- proval to a resolution stating that drug companies raise prices whenever unions negoti- ate drug plans in their contracts and that public control seems the best answer. Stewart Dickinson of Sudbury said pollution-control could1 prove the answer to Canada's rising unemployment problem. "There would be no necessity for a man to be out of a job for the next 20 he said. "It will take all our unemployed to do the anti-pollution job."

CALGARY (CP) -Abortion and sterilization must be seri- ously considered as methods rjd combatting over population, a Calgary doctor told the Alberta Associ a t i o n of Begistered Nurses Thursday. Dr. Harry Brody, chief of obstetrics and gynaecology at Foothills Hospital, said he did not favor abortion on demand but recommended its use in case of contraceptive failure. "But the onus of responsl- bility remains on the couple to make an honest attempt to pre- vent an unwanted conception." Dr. Brody, who served on a therapeutic abortion commit- lee for nine years, said he came to the personal con- clusion there is a disparity be- tween what women want and what legislation says they can have. "On the oilier hand, when a patient does seek abortion, it is up to the profession, including the nursing profession, to ex- plore the basis for her motiva- tion." Canadian abortion laws h; resulted in a double standa of health care. "A woman of means can abroad or to some places in t United States and find mea of achieving an abortion, wh a poor woman cannot affo it." Considering Individua health, family happiness an population control, sterilizatii is one of the most important a pects in limiting family siz Dr. Brody told the annual co vention. POSITIVE STAND The health profession to take a population positive control, stand steriliz tions and abortions, he said. "I believe that one canni make blanket statements i er all situations, but v mist begin to set guidelinrand babies as an epidemic )ut insist that every child born >e given the best possible care. Then, we can go on to recog- nize that If too many children are bom into this generation, all of them will suffer." Most family planning move- ments failed to discuss long- range goals. Success was in- erpreLd as a reduction of lirths on the assumption that reduction would lessen the pop- ulation growth but no consider- ation was given the increasing number of people living longer.

Workshop organizers expecl some TOO individuals, and rep- resentatives of environmental, ecological, anti-war and pacif- ist groups to attend the work- shop and a protest demonstra- tion at the federal govern- ment's Suffield Experimental Research Station, where chemi- cal and biological warfare tests are carried out. Suffield is about 20 miles northwest of Medicine Hat. "There are no suitable facil- ties in Medicine Hat to accom- modate a large group of people and therefore this city cannot authorize any sizeable number of people such as that report- ed coming to make use of any of our city parks or parklands or any other city-owned prop- Mayor Harry Veiner said Thursday. "We have had a peaceful way of life in Medicine Hat over the years and we do not want any demonstration that might lead to violence." At Suffield, director general Joe Perry said the station has been aware for several weeks of the planned demonstration. He said he expects the protest to be peaceful and as far as the station is concerned no ex- tra security is planned. He also stated that the sta- tion is willing to provide what- ever comforts the protestors may ask for, outside the main gate. Mr. Perry was Invited to speak to the rally but has de- clined because he does not feel he could add anything to the many statements that have been made by Hie minister of national defense and other re- search board officials. However, Mr. Perry has1 in- vited the leaders from the va- rious groups of six to 10 people to actually discuss any prob- lems with him in his office, but separately from the main gath- ering. Mr. Perry said he would be prepared to admit this small group to the camp to discuss things rationally, and arrange a tour of installations if need be. In reply to a comment in Cal- gary yesterday by Alberta New Democratic Party Leader Grant Notley he said; "Mr. Notley is quite in error because we have never tested defolia- tion weapons at Suffield. In fact, in tests for weapons of this type one would require bushes and trees, and we have nothing of this type on the Suffield range."
