FIRE COMMISSIONER'S OFFICE Alberta MANPOWER AND LABOUR Long road ahead on E-W force reductions BRUSSELS (CP) The road o agreement on mutual, bal- nced East-West force reduc- ions in Europe will be long and of the type to ustain public interest in the do- t-now West, One estimate at North Atlan- tic Treaty Organization head- quarters here is that little prog- ess will be shown in the first of the negotiations-even if hey get under way next Sep- ember or October as expected. The preliminary talks, aimed at setting up the agenda for the eventual conference, got tinder way in Vienna this week after L4 weeks of behind-the-scenes laggling. In prospect is tough, detailed Bargaining on every point that las to do with the strength of the rival NATO and Warsaw pact forces that face each other in Central Europe. The preliminary haggling was concerned with the status of Hungary in the negotiatoins. The Soviet Union insisted that the Hungarians be merely ob- servers. The Western powers sought to have Budapest made a full participant. For the moment the Hun- garians are in as observers only. But the seven NATO repre- sentatives in Vienna, which in- clude the United States, Britain and Canada, have reserved the right to reopen the question of Hungary's status at the confer- ence proper when it convenes. The distinction between Hun- gary being an observer or a full participant is more than proce- dural. It hides the real issue of whether -Hungary, with some Soviet troops stationed on its soil and military per- sonnel of its Own, will come within the scope of whatever agreements are finally ham- mered out in the projected con- ference. If Hungary ends up as an ob- server only, it will not be cov- ered by a forces-reduction agreement. The Soviet Union will be able to maintain its mili- tary outpost in that country, un- diminisned in strength. It has been suggested that if Hungary is to be included as a full conference therefore a party to a forces reduction treaty, the West would have to pay a price. The price would be inclusion of Italy, with its NATO facilities and own national forces, as a full participant, subject to all the troop-reduction arrange- ments. Italy is not now on the list of full-fledged Western partici- pants. The Western countries would perhaps rather concentrate on reducing Warsaw-pact forces in such central areas as East Ger- m a n y and Czechoslovakia, rather than argue immediately about the array of forces in more-remote Hungary. But Hungary would remain significant in that any forces withdrawn by the Warsaw pact group from countries close to the NATO frontier might be transferred to Hungarian terri- tory. And Hungary would be a good jumping-off point for any So- v i e t-backed military move I against key European buffer countries such as Austria and Yugoslavia. The Hungarian question is just one of a variety of thorny matters which await solution, or at least compromise agree- ment, before an agreement on force reductions can be achieved. Oil company earnings up CALGARY (CP) Scurry- Rainbow Oil Ltd. earned 000 or 21 cents a share during the six month ended March 31, up from on 12 cents a share in the comparable period a year earlier. The company said the In- crease was due to higher prices for crude oil, larger investment income and lower mine-aband- onment costs. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.
