Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Tuesday, May 22, 1973 Suspicion grows about Moscow-Bonn detente By CY FOX BRUSSELS (CP) The visit to West Germany of Soviet chief Leonid Brezhnev adds a crowning touch to Chancellor Willy Brandt's policy of friend- ship towards the Communist countries of Eastern Europe. But it also leaves much tough talking to be done on still-trou- blesome political matters, such as West Berlin, as well as hard bargaining over new com- mercial ties between Russia- and the federal republic. Cautionary words have been expressed in some European Conservative quarters about the developing Soviet-German rela- tionship. Sir Alec Douglas-Home, Brit- ish foreign secretary, cited the dangers of any "illusory de- tente" and to advocate "tough and careful negotiation" in Western dealings, with the Com- munists during a recent visit he made to Bonn. Repeatedly, there have been warnings in the'West about the alleged way the Communists have been building up their mil- itary forces in Europe while Brezhnev presses forward with his diplomatic campaign to- wards West Germany and the United States. SPLIT FEARED Moreover, there may be worry in the West about a pos- sible Russian attempt to draw West Germany away from not only its links with NATO but also its partnership with the other eight members of the Eu- ropean Common Market. Brezhnev continues to insist on bilateral commercial deals with the affluent powers of Western such as the Bonn republic and France. He appears reluctant to deal with the Common market as a collective entity. Member countries seem ready to accept that approach. France is one country which has remarkable diplomatic and commercial dealings with Rus- sia. West Germany is therefore not alone among Western Eu- ropean powers seeking to culti- vate renewed bilateral friend- ship with Moscow. Douglas- Home's own government has been moving in the same direc- tion. Moreover, Brezhnev's over- tures to Bonn are in line with the Soviet leader's recent deal- ings with the United States. From the U.S., as from West Germany, the general secretary of the Soviet Communist party has been seeking the expert knowledge and investment drive needed to develop the vast un- tapped natural resources of Russian-controlled territory. NEW OUTLETS SOUGHT The West Germans are re- ported to be ready to apply their capitalistic verve to bol- stering the further development of Russia's steel and automobile industry. In addition, there is the ex- change of pipeline equipment for Russian natural gas and a general commercial pattern in line with materials and foodstuffs from the East in return for West Germany's much-vaunted finished products and machine tools. The West Germans still conn- mand a redoubtable industrial economic energy some other West Eu- ropean countries find somewhat intimidating. Obviously, the Russian con- sumer market and the demands of that country's natural re- sources would provide a great new outlet for these West Ger- man commercial drives. And perhaps adding to Brezh- nev's desire to do more trade business with the Bonn author- ities is the fact that the West Germans currently are being tempted by a new wave of com- mercial prospects involving Russia's immense communist rival, China.

Home wrecker Maria Ferreira Lima stares in astonishment at the remains of her home after a bus which had been parked nearby with the emergency brake on crashed into her Rio de Janeiro house. The driver said he had gone on a coffee break and when he returned the bus was in Mrs. Lima's front room. Her two children were only slightly injured by falling debris. Mrs. Lima was puttering in her garden when the incident occurred. EUGENE WHELAN: By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) Six months after he took over the portfolio, Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan is just as outspoken a tub thumper for the country's farmers as he was a renegade Liberal MP for 10 years. But now he gets more public- ity. And he candidly agrees he's being criticized for his defence of steadily-rising food prices. But the flak "isn't as great as you'd think it would Mr. Whelan said in an interview. Most was "emotional flak" from people who actually spent less on food than they had in the past. For the ethers, such as those on mother's allowance: "They don't fool this fat minister of agriculture about hard times.'' The rotund six-footer says over a tiny cigar in a massive new office just off Parliament Hill: "We're a family of nine kids, raised on mother's allow- ance at a month." "And we got none of the social benefits you have today." Food prices grabbed the spotlight soon after the 48-year- old fanner, a life-long resident of Amherstburg, Ont, was ap- pointed to Prime Minister Trudeau's cabinet in a Novem- ber shuffle. SETS UP REVIEW BOARD Consumers started food boy- cotts, a special Commons com- mittee began to investigate price trends ard the cabinet quickly approved establishment of a price review board rsccm- mended by the committee as a monitoring device. Throughout ths continuing controversy feed prices rose 2.6 per cent between March and April, for instance, a trend that would increase costs 37 par cent if it lasted cr.e year Mr. Whelan has maintained that feed is still a bargain and that prices will keep rising. Last week, a day after the latest food price increase recorded by Statistics Canada was rel.'ised, he accused con- sumers cf being ''spoiled'1 by low food cost during the last 20 years. Mr. Whelan is quick to point out that he always excludes the "bottom, third of the population that can't take care of them- selves" when he defends rising costs and says he is happy with the idea of a food price review board. If there are any culprits forc- ing prices up unduly, the beard can "find them and weed them cut." Mr Trudeau calls the minis- ter's food cost statements a ''matter of personal opinion of judgment." Mr. Whelan says he had a talk with the prime minister about his views. Tins, he says, is what Mr. Trudeau told him- "Gene, I don't care what you minister cf agriculture and jour "job is to look after agriculture in long as you're honest and factual in what jcu're "I try to do just that." Mr. Whelan has taken a sim- ilar blurt approach to most farm issues during the last six months. It apparently cheers farmers. Us says a new feed grain pol- icy, expected this sommer in response to the problems divid- ing eastern livestock men and Western grain growers, will be a lot like he is: "Simple, easy to understand, honest and fair." MADE 70 SPEECHES Critics of the agriculture min- ister have complained that Mr. Whelan spends most of his time roaming about the country making made about 70 since November, an average of three a is falling down as a legislator. Only one farm bill, an act to amend the Crop Insurance Act, has been introduced since Mr. Whelan took over the portfolio. Seme cppcsition critics argua he is simply maintaining the status quo ''You don t legislate goccl ag- Mr. Whelan replies.
