"We hav- been Satisfying Cuitomerl for Over 60 Years" 325 8th Si. S., lethbritigs Phone 327-3920 Count them. In the last month and a half at least 21 offi- cials from one country or another have made or planned a visit to a foreign country, Most of the travellers have been at the top or near the top in the governmental hierarchies. I prefer to accept these moves as an indication of in- creasing international co operation with the ultimate goal of minimizing tensions. However, a more likely reason is an attempt by individual nations to gain some sort of advan- tage over otter nations at their own level of power. The Russians seen: to be leading the way in this respect. President Podgorny has gone to Har.oi to reaffirm Soviet support for the North Vietnamese cause. Prime Minister Kosygin. of course, came to Canada after spending some time with the Moroccans and Egyptians. Party boss Brezh- nev has teen busy as well, with Willy Brandt of West Ger- many and Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. And Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko met with President Nixon in the U.S., continuing the move toward tetter relations between the two powers. Tbe Americans are not standing still either. Top presi- dential advisor Henry Kissinger went to Peking to lay the ground work for Mr. Nixon's scheduled jaunt, which will take him to the Chinese capital as well as to Moscow. At the same lime, Vice president Agnew passed through Greece acknowledging the strategic importance of American military bases there. Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird is now in Scjtteast Asia to make a survey of the situation in that part of the world. Let's sift out the communication between the Commu- nist leaders. That happens all the time, although perhaps not quite to the degree it is now. Observers claim the Soviet Union has teen forced by American overtures to Peking to solidify its influence in Europe. You can probably also discount the Laird trip, because somebody is always going to Vietnam, and Mr. Agnew's ex- cursion appears to have teen primarily concerned with the birthday party in Iran. What you have left is an unusual amount of political intercourse between Communist and noil CoMmunist coun- tries. That can't be a bad thing except for the inevitable res- piratory problems it must be causing for the extreme right- wingers of Western society. It's difficult to determine now what the result of these exchanges will be. Surely we can be encouraged to hope that a much more desirable situation will come out of the concerted effort of Willy Brandt to reach agreement with the Russians over Berlin. The cost of his travels has been more than paid back. Also, the mere fact that the U.S. is finally acknowledg- ing the existence of 800 million Chinese is a giant step in the right direction. The U.S. appears to be going further than acknowledgement, however and even hints that there might be some co-operation, which is vitally necessary for future peace, Mr. Nixon's plane ticket next spring should be well worth the price, I hope. Something else which hasn't occurred for almost a gen- eration is close to happening now. and is a further indica- tion of the co-operation trend. Red Cross representatives from North and South Korea have met recently to discuss a more humanitarian treatment of prisoners of war in the two areas. More meetings are expected in the near future. The list goes on. Ceylon's Prime Minister Sirimavo Ban- daranaike came to Canada, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi is going to France from India, Ethiopian Emperor Haile i Selassie talked with Mao in Peking, Marshal Tito has come to Canada from Yugoslavia, British diplomat Lord Goodman has been negotiating with the Rhodesian government and Japanese Emperor Hirohito has been all over. Egyptian President Sadat has been to Moscow twice. Now, if we can get him to re-roule his next trip across the Suez Canal to Tel Aviv, we might have something. If the Arabs and Israelis could get together, anyone could. There is no substitute for face-to-face encounters. There Is also no way I can see international bickering coming to an end without communication and a certain amount of com- promise. Put these together and it has to be encouraging to see the air plugged with travelling dignitaries. If it con- tinues, the world might well be singing a variation of a recent Three Dog Night hit: co-operate, co-operate, dance to the music.

Initially, the courses would be offered only to students who have spare periods, but if the "mini courses" are successful, will be incorporated into the school program throughout the year.
