Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. Snubs Soviets On Anniversary lly LI5WIS (JUUCK WASHINGTON (AP) Protesting Russian deten- tion of two United States generals in Soviet Armenia, Washington officials are boycotting this year's Soviet national anniversary celebrations, and the order is re- ported to have come from President Nixon. The diplomatic snub means American ambassadors are staying away from the caviar-and-vodka parlies given by the Soviets in many capitals to mark the 53rd anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, though they may send lower-ranking U.S. diplomats if they choose. Coupled with U.S. tit-for-lat expulsion of a Soviet news correspondent Friday, the snub marks a further deterioration ot relations between the two powers. In Washington, the highest U.S. representative al- lowed to attend the annual Soviet embassy gala Friday night was Atiolph Dubs, state department Soviet af- fairs officer. But the official boycott didn't hinder three former U.S. ambassadors to Moscow. Former Envoys Go Among COO guests at a. reception given here by Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin were W. Averell Harriman, former top U.S. negotiator at the Paris peace talks, and Soviet experts Foy Kohler and Llewel- lyn Thompson. The three formerly represented the United States in Moscow. Last year the Nixon administration was represented at the celebration by two cabinet members Trans- portation Secretary John Volpe and Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel. After the state department had indicated earlier Friday it would restrict its representation at the Soviet party to a deputy assistant secretary, Nixon was re- ported to favor going a notch lower. A state department press officer, John F. King, then announced that Dubs would be the man. King said: "In view of the unwarranted detention of the crew and passengers of a light U.S. aircraft by Soviet au- thorities, including three officers of the American armed forces, it has been deemed inappropriate this year tor senior American officials to accept the hospi- lality of the Soviet government on the occasion of the November celebrations." Voice Displeasure Dubs was said to be under instructions to make plain to Dobrynin mounting U.S. displeasure over con- tinued Soviet detention of the two U.S. Army generals and a major who landed in Soviet Armenia Oct. 21. The U.S. says the light plane strayed across the Turkish border inadvertently and should be released promptly. The Soviets have protested the intrusion into their air'space antt say they are holding the men pend- ing an investigation. Moscow has turned down a request that U.S. diplo- mats be allowed to visit the American officers Mon- day. On previous visits, the have been found in good health under house arrest in a comfortable villa. Washington officials said the lone U.S. mission chief abroad allowed to attend a Soviet anniversary party was Gerard Smith, head of the U.S. delegation to the U.S. Soviet strategic arms limitation talks at Hel- sinki, Finland. Both the U.S. and the Soviet Union have been at paias to keep the SALT negotiations free of other dis- putes between the two big powers. The Soviet reporter given a 72-liour deadline to get out of the U.S. was Leonid Zhegalov. He has been here with the Soviet news agency, Tass, since July, 1969. King said Zhegalov was expelled "in a direct reciprocity for the unjustified expulsion of John Dron- berg of Newsweek magazine two weeks ago." King said, expulsion of Zhegalov did not imply any wrong-doing by the Tass correspondent, Toy 'Shoppers JL JL A nn i i nn Are 1 old I o Be Careful By SUSAN BECKEH OTTAWA (CP) Although sweeping new rules on toy safety were announced Friday, busy Christinas shoppers should still carefully consider their pur- chases. Sitting at a (able laden with unsafe toys sent his department this year by concerned consumers, Con- sumer Affairs Minister Ron Basford said the new reg- ulations are designed to remove poorly constructed, dangerous toys from the market. He also said that no matter how many safety reg- ulations are made, consumers should still watch what they are buying. The new regulations, which apply to imported as well as domestic toys, ban immediately a wide variety of dangerous features, and Mr. Basford said that if Uie department's inspectors across Canada find such toys on Ihc market. they will be removed. Because most loys on the Canadian market are meeting requirements, h.8 said he sees no effect on prices generally as a result of the new rules. The regulations are issued under the Hazardous Products' Act and will be complemented by other rules a year from now. Under the new regulations, toys which expose metal spikes or sharp wires when they are broken are banned. So arc those with loose eyes or rattles with small parts which could choke a child. Straight pins used for attaching bows and decora- tions to dolls are prohibited. Toy arrows and other projcclilc toys arc required lo have protective tips and Ihc shafts of push-pull loys will have to have protective fittings. Detailed rr-giilat.ioiis fonlro! the of any sul'- sUticc i'l a toy which might be poisonous. Paints used must meet standards limiting lead content or other hazardous ingredients. Electrically-operated loys must meet safety stand- ards .Toys with hot surfaces such as toy irons are also subjcct.to safety standards. Celluloid toys, except table-tennis balls, are out- lawed and doll hair or animal fur must not be made of inflammable material. Standards governing mechanical hazards associated with loy.s will go into effect in November, 1971. The Lethbndge Herald FORECAST HIGH SUNDAY W "Sereins South Alberla ami Southeastern B.C.''
