Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LfciMBRSDOE HiiiHALu hiay Kissinger one saving grace Scandals erode U.S. influence in important foreign affairs UNITED NATIONS The Watergate al- though primarily a domestic may be undermining the influence of the United States in the international field. The steady erosion of the power and authority of the pres- idency has had marked effects on the U.S. domestic scene and seems also to be hampering American conduct of foreign affairs. This was first noticeable a year in the early stages of Watergate when U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger sought to strengthen U.S. relationships with European allies by proclaiming 1973 as the Year of Europe. That though delivered with considerable state department received coolly in European particularly in some northern European states which felt that closer U.S. ties with the Continent would damage their traditional trading patterns. A coolness then developed between the U.S. and traditional friends since the French supported the American struggle for indepencence. It became pronounced early this with French government spokesmen expressing occa- sional criticism of U.S. initiatives in seeking to promote a Middle East peace settlement. In the financial the weakness of the presidency of- ten has been cited within the U.S. itself as one of the basic reasons for the lack of overseas confidence in the American dollar. At the United Nations a recent special session of raw ma- terials has been cited as an example of indecisiveness on the part of the U.S. administration. It seemed apparent that Washington was unable to define clearly its aims at that .ses- sion. The assembly had been called to consider demands by the developing countries for higher prices for the raw materials they ship to industrialized countries and for a larger share of the world's wealth. In marked contrast to the leading role it has assumed in other UN the U.S. played a relatively minor part in that It was not until the dying days of the three- week meeting that it came up with a proposal for a billion UN emergency fund to help poorer countries in need of im- mediate assistance.

Computer system described TORONTO A computer specialist predicts a compact system which will do for the computer what the transistor has done for the radio. Andrew Bobeck of Bell Laboratories in New Jersey. described the system as tiny magnetic bubbles moving at high speeds throughout thin wafers of magnetic material which would provide the .computer memory banks of the future. Mr. one of the holders of the original bubble said the first commercial product using a bubble memory system might appear within six months or a year. He said in an interview the new technology might provide memory systems not only for large computers but for desk and pocket calculators and electronic telephone switching systems. Mr. Bobeck said bubble memory systems will be cheaper and more compact that the magnetic tapes or discs currently used for storing much of the information a computer needs. Old Japanese custom Japan's Emperor Hirohito transplants young rice plants in a paddy field in the moated Imperial Palace grounds in the heart of Tokyo. Ta-uye or paddy-field planting is generally done during May and June all over Japan. The imperial rice planting is held annually. Bennett swept to power in last July election OTTAWA Canadians last voted in a July election 44 years ago when the Progressive Conservatives to power under R. B. Bennett. That election two years into the Great Depression was July and voters unseated the Liberal government of W. L. Mackenzie King. The other July election was in 1872 when Canada's first government was nearing the end of its five-year term. Sir John A. Macdonald scored a narrow victory to return his Conservative party to power. But he was forced to resign the next year when he was defeated in the Commons over scandals surrounding construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The 1872 election was held before voting procedures were simplified by swift commu- nications. Balloting started July 20 but did not end until Oct. 12. The new government was not sworn in until Nov. 1872. The summer months never have been popular election choices by the country's 15 prime ministers. Only four two in July and two in had been called prior to the latest election announcement. Traditional thinking has been that election campaigns draw less interest in the summer. Rural residents are children are out of school and thousands of families are on vacation. The argument that this gives the protest vote more force and protest votes are usually bad news the party in power. June is by far the most popular election month. Seven June the latest in 1968 when Prime Minister Trudeau polled the first majority win in a have been held. WEST LETHBRIDGE LOTS FOR SALE Commencing May 1974 to May 1974. One lot per customer.
