Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, May 16, 1973 Farmers carry Suffield battle to Edmonton MEDICINE HAT (CP) Farmers in southeastern Al- berta plan a march to Edmon- ton to protest British army training on the Suffield Mili- tary Reserve. 30 miles north- west of Medicine Hat. The farmers asked Tuesday that the mile mili- tary reserve be returned to agricultural purposes. A petition protesting the 10- year agreement with Britain under which the training is taking place is being circu- lated in Medicine Hat and dis- trict. Farmers will travel in a mo- torcade in about three weeks to Edmonton where it is hoped the petition will be presented to Environment Minister Bill Yurko. No formal date was set. Ben Walter of Jenner, a spo- kesman for the farmers, said farmers feel the army training will turn the area into a dust bowl as suggested in a recent report by the provincial gov- ernment, Mr. Walter said farmers will support the province's plan to go ahead with gas well drilling on the reserve. "Gas production and agricul- ture are in he said. He said returns from gas and cattle production would exceed the present return from leas- ing the base to the British army. tanks are again rolling across the prairie of southeastern Al- berta. Armored manoeuvres began in April under the second year of a agreement which allows British t r o o p s to use a portion of the square-mile military reserve 30 miles northeast of Medicine Hst. Use of the area has also been sought for oil and gas explora- tion and by cattlemen who want grazing rights in case of a summer drought. Last year, environmentalists protested the tank training, saying it destroyed the delicate grasslands. Defence officials said the British have modified battle runs this year to avoid trampling some of the areas. Large deficit seen for post office SUFFIELD (CP) British Diefenbaker gets in lick at post office OTTAWA (CP1 So far as John Diefenbaker is con- cerned, the post office depart- ment is slightly short on re- search efforts. A letter to the former prime minister was addressed to his old address in Rockchffe Vil- lage, about a half-mile from where he now lives, and it was returned to the sender, a Toronto judge, ad- dress unknown He says he frequently has received letters addressed to "Mr. Diefenbaker, Canada.'1 However, Mr. Diefenbaker got in the first lick at the post office three years ago when he received a letter addressed to the late Mackenzie King. It was returned with the nota- tion: "Left no forwarding ad- dress.' OTTAWA (CP) The post of- fice will have a large deficit for some years to come, Post- master-General Andre Ouellct told the Commons' commu- nications committee Tuesday. The post office expects reve- nues this year of more than S6CO million, but of this million is paid into the general federal consolidated revenue million will be applied against ex- penditures. His comments were made as the committee considered million in budgetary spending for 1973-74. Mr. Ouellet reiterated his pre- vious commitment to postal rates unchanged despite increasing costs for labor, mechanization in the post office awl transportation. He said the government would rather try to improve ar.d diversify its sendees to postal consumers. If improved marketing steps fail, then the post office might i haie to look at increased rates, i Crushed to death in trash truck TUCSON, Ariz f AP) A 55- i j ear-old man who apparently fell asleep in a trash bin was crushed to death in a garbage truck that emptied the bin, po- lice said Tuesday. His body was found in a dump. Investigators said the body of Placido Trejo cf Tucson was un- covered at the dump Monday by a bulldozer operator. They said a garbage truck apparently picked up the trash bin and dumped the garbage and Trejo inside. He was crushed in the truck's compactor, they said. said Mr. Ouellet in an interview later. He described present rates as reasonably cheap. Fred Pageau, postal rates branch director, told the com- mittee the post office had in- curred a deficit of million in handling of Time magazine and of about million in han- dling Reader's Digest. Both are considered to 'put out Canadian editions, though American-owned, and operate under the same conditions as Canadian publications. Domes- tic magazine publishers have complainsd in the past about treatment accorded to the Ca- nadian editions of these maga- zines, saying that the U.S.- owned publications have an un- fair advantage.

Diefs trade queries unanswered Mill cult rate at Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) Cit> council has established the 1973 mill rate at 54 mills, a reduc- tion of 1.02 mills from the rate recommended by the commis- sion board. The reduction was accom- plished by slicing about SI 5 million from the expected million in extra revenue caused by recent increases in utility cost and means the average homeowner will pay about more in property taxes than last year. Finance Commissioner Tom Adams said general expendi- tures will rise by 8.5 per cent during 1973 with revenue ex- pected to rise only three per cent. By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Probing to find out what letters of protest have been fired cff to the "United States government by the Cana- dian government over recent trade negotiations John Die- fenbaker Albert) I is irate because of his questions j have gone unanswered. He has had two key questions i on the commons order paper j since March 29. They still are I not answered by Trade and Commerce Minister Alastair Gillespie. Meantime Mr. GiJlespie has said publicly that Canada has abandoned the idea of making a package trade settlement with the U.S. en a number of trade He has dismissed the former trade negotiations which were approached on the basis of a "package deal" as "very naive." Mr. Gillespie made that com- ment during the study of his de- partment's estimates by the commons committee on finance, trade and economic affairs. He has also warned that he "will not be stampeded" by any pres- sure from Washington to accept changes in the TJ.S.-Canada auto pact. Mr. Diefenbaker in the com- mons Monday said there could i be no excuse for answering sev- eral questions he has put to the goyerniEisnt. One in particular dealt with the trade negotia- tions and the Canadian govern- ment's present stance in those negotiations. It was in two parts. It asked: what dates since Jan. 1, 1973 did the mEnister of trade and commerce communicate with the secretary of commerce of the U.S. regaiding possible cr potential trade action by the i U.S. against Canada? letters of protest to the U.S. government been sent by either the prims minister cr the minister and if so, on what dates and to Mr. Diefenbaker said in the house "No matter how free one is from suspicion, the fact re- mains that this answer could have been given long ago. He said the answer may be a simple one that no commu- nication has taken place and consequently there has been no reply from the U.S. However the former prime minister said the delay in reply- ing to his question made him suspicious. Mr. Gillespie promised to look into the matter. He added that he had thought the question had been answered some time ago. He regretted it had not.

He said useful exploratory meetings have been held between U S. Treasury Secretary George Shultz and himself but declined to attach the description of "proposals" to such talks. White hats ruled out this time CALGARY (CP) Neither Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Philip will be getting a white hat from the city when they ar- rive July 5 to officially open the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. Calgary officials were em- barrassed in October, 1969, when they presented Prince Philip with a white hat he already had two from previous he remarked: "Not another one." Gail Rule, in charge of co- ordinating this year's gift selec- tion, said numerous art objects have been suggested amd a few ideas, such as a hat rack, were rejected outright. "They'll be getting trinkets across Canada like she said, and the city would likely give a remembrance which is other than a material object. A final selection has yet to be made. The white cowboy hat is the usual given for visiting digni- taries.
