Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. Snubs Soviets On Anniversary Ily LEWIS ('MUCK WASHINGTON (AP) Protesting Russian deten- tion of two United States generals in Soviet Armenia, Washington officials are boycotting tills year's Soviet national anniversary celebrations, and the order is re- ported lo have corne from President Nixon. The diplomatic snub means American ambassadors are staying away from the caviar-and-vodka parties 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-tat expulsion of a Soviet news correspondent Friday, the snub marks a further deterioration of relations between the two powers. In Washington, the highest U.S. representative al- lowed to attend (he annual Soviet embassy gala Friday night was Adolph Dubs, slate 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 Sea-clary John Volpe and Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel. After tlie 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- IhoriUes, including three officers of the American armed forces, it has been deemed inappropriate this year for senior American officials to accept the hospi- tality 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 two U.S. Army generals and a major who landed in Soviet Armenia Oct. 21. file 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 and 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 pains to keep the SALT negotiations free of other dis- putes between the two big powers. The Soviet reporter given a 72-tour 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 expeEed "in a direct reciprocity for the unjustified expulsion of Join 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 Are Told To Be Careful By SUSAN BECKER OTTAWA (CP) Although sweeping new rules on toy safety were announced Friday, busy Christmas shoppers should still carefully consider their pur- chases. Sitting at a fable laden with unsafe toys sent his department Ihis 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 lo imported as well as domestic toys, ban immediately a wide variety of dangerous features, and Mr. Basford said that if (lie department's inspectors across Canada find such toys on I he market, they will be removed. Because most toys on Hie Canadian market are meeting requirements, he said he sees no effect on prices generally 35 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 pirn used for attaching bows and decora- lions lo dolls are prohibited. Toy arrows and other projectile toys are required lo have protective tips and I he shafts of push-pull toys will have to have protective fittings. Detailed regulations mnlrol Hie use of any sub- slaticc in a toy which be poisonous. Paints used must meet standards limiting lead content or other hazardous ingredients. Electrically-operated toys must meet safety stand- ards .Toys with hot surfaces such as toy irons are also 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 toys will go into eflect in November, 1971. The LetKbridge Herald FORECAST HIGH SUNDAY
