Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Widimdoy, Mny 17, 1970 YHl LETHBRIDCE HERALD Canada Receives Rare Coins Gift OTTAWA (Cl3) The Royal Mint of England presented Can- ada today with a collection of 18 rare coins struck in London dur- ing the 19th century for colonies which afterwards became the Atlantic provinces. Sir Colin Crowe, British high commissioner, presented t h e coins to Finance Minister E. J. Benson for the numismatic collection of the Bank of Can- ada. Mr. Benson said the coins have historical value almost be- yond price.' The coins, ranging in denomi- nations from half cent Nova Scotia pieces of 1861 and to unusual two-dollar gold coins of Newfoundland, dated 1870 and 1888, are all proofs or speci- kept by the Master of the Mint to prove his competence to the sovereign. Oldest pieces in the group are copper penny and halfpenny coins of New Brunswick, issued in 1854, with a frigate or sailing ship depicted on the reverse. Other New Brunswick coins are silver five-cent and 20-ccnt pieces dated 1802, bronze cents of ISlil and 1864 and a rare tali-cent minted in error hi 1861.' The half-cent pieces had been ordered by Nova Scotia and some were minted also for New Brunswick by mistake. Nova Scotia half-cent pieces of 1861 and 18IJ4 are in the collection APPOINTED Andrew II.

Troops Story Denied WASHINGTON (AP) Thte White House said Tuesday the United States will conclude its operation in Cambodia June 30 and all U.S. personnel will be out of the country by not before. Press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler labelled as inaccurate a New York Times story that all ground troops would be pulled out perhaps a week be- fore the June 30 deadline. Ziegler said the pullout, when it is completed, will have re- moved all those that President Nixon promised to withdraw when he announced his decision to send American forces in South Vietnam into Communist command sanctuaries1 beyond the Cambodian border. "We've announced our sched- Ziegler said. "We are on schedule. Things are proceeding well." In response to a question, the press'secretary said there is no intention to re-introduce Ameri- cans into Cambodia after June 30. He repeated, the U.S. has reserved an option to assist the South Vietnamese government forces with air op- erations, as a matter of security for U.S. forces in South Viet- Presbylerian Minister Quits Over Ruling EDINBURGH (AP) The Church of Scotland's General Assembly was loudly inter- rupted here by one of its Presbyterian ministers. Rev. James Stott, 33, said he was resigning from the church because of its recent decision that unmarried, promiscuous women wltould be allowed contraceptive pills as "the lesser of two minister o[ Denbeath parish church in Fifeshire, rose from a seat in the public gallery and shouted: "The Lord has taken me out of this church because it is a corrupt and corrupting church: It has trampled on tire Lord, tramped His will and glory underfoot." Rl. Rev. Hugh Douglas, moderator of the assembly, listened politely ard then said: "We arc now adjourning for lunch." They were equivalent then to the English farthing, which had previously been used in the col- ony. Prince Edward Island is rep- resented in the collection by a bronze cent dated of- ficial coin ever issued by exclu- sive use on the island and the only coin ever issued for use in any part of Canada with an English inscription on the ob- serve or front instead of the usual Latin The Newfoundland two-dollar gold pieces are the only ones ever issued in (he Western Hemisphere in that denomina- tion. Other Newfoundland coins in the collection are bronze cents of 1865 and latter struck in Birmingham instead of silver five-cent and 10-cent pieces of 1865, with the one-cent piece of .that year the first deciminal coins for Britain's oldest colony.

Seeding Still Lags CALGARY (CP) The prov- i ince's farmers made rapid pro- i gross ir planting operations last week, the Alberta Wheat ;Pool reports but seeding still lags behind last year's pace. The pool said 65 per cent of wheat had been seeded by last weekend, 32 per cent of oats, and 36 per cent of barley. Only spotty, light rainfall was reported in the province dur- ing the week, largely in the Peace River and western re- gions. Soil moisture remains generally good throughout the province, though topsoil is be- coming dry in some southeast- ern and northern areas. Some Medicine Hat area farmers are delaying seeding until topsoil moisture condi- tions improve. Subsoil moisture reserves are holding steady throughout Al- berta. The wheat pool said early s o w n crops are germinating well but growth is slow. Indications at the weekend were that farmers intended to seed a total of acres of wheat in Alberta this year, a decline of about 31 per cent from 1969. Other crops acreages were expected to increase over barley by 17 per cent, flax 61 per cent, rye 11 per cent and rapeseed 72 per cent.
