Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Herald Economy To Remain Stagnant Says Report Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, November 7, 1970 Pages 27-3-1 Press Corps Rapped TORONTO (CP) The economy will remain stagnant in both Canada and the United States at least through the first quarter of 1971, Burns Bros, and Dcnton Ltd. say in their annual Blue Book investment Toronto-based firm says the last three months of 1970 will produce only slight growth in Canada with the first three months of 1971 expected to be a poor lime for business investment. The Blue Book says the will run below potential in 1971 with a real growth rate of three to lili per cent. "High unemployment will be the central issue of economic the report says, "yet Canadian authorities will not jeopardize the progress containing inflation by overly-expansionist policies. "Unemployment is high and rising in both countries. Industrial production is sluggish. The consumer has little fundamental confidence in the future." False Reports Initiated Accuses Prime Minister By DAVE JlclNTOSH OTTAWA (CPI Four times in the last week Prime Minister Trudeau in the Commons has nraiSMl the press of initiating or spreading rumors and false reports about the anti-terrorist campaign in Quebec.' The subject fist arose Oct. 27 when Opposition Leader Kobert Stanficld asked whether the government had proclaimed the War Measures Act Oct. 16 partly on the grounds that it believed an influential group of Quebecers wanted to supplant the Bourassa administration with a provisional government. Mr. Trudeau replied in part: "It is not the habit of this gov- ernment to deny or confirm any such rumors that happen to be circulating." The following day Rene Matte, Creditiste MP for Cham- plain, said Claude Ryan, pub- lisher and editor of the Mont- real daily Le Devoir, had ac- cused Mr. Trudeau and the fed- eral government of "making up the story of a conspiracy to overthrow Mr. Bourassa and re- place him with an interim gov- ernment.' Mr. Trudeau said: A MAN AND HIS DOG President Nixon pauses briefly to shake hands with dog, King Tim A Hoe, prior to addressing ths press at the House in San Clemente, Colif. The president and his wife have three dogs. New Stage Developing For Brandt's Policies By CY KOX Canadian Press Staff Writer Despite the old enmities re- sulting from centuries of Pol- ish-German conflict, a climax seems to be near in talks aimed at producing a basis for better relations in future between West Germany and the Communist authorities in Warsaw. Up to now. the bargaining has been long and tough but observ- ers say a treaty providing for more normal relations may be initialled by Polish and West German representatives as early as the middle of next week. Such a sucess would open a new stage in Chancellor Willy Brandt's policy of improving the Bonn govern- ments relations with the coun- tries of Communist East Eu- rope. In implementing this pattern of action. Brandt has been con- t fronted with major obstacles _on his domestic political front. One of these obstacles has been the deterioration of the Free Democratic party, the jun- ior partner to Brandt's Social Democrats in the present Bonn coalition. FACE TEST Sunday, the Free Democrats face another test in West Ger- man state elections, this time in Hesse. An unfavorable showing might worsen their internal problems and thus threaten the Brandt coalition, already buf- feted by broadsides from oppo- sition Christian Democrats in the West German parliament. A driving force in the moves to make Brandt's Ostpoliiil; a reality is Foreign Minister Wal- ter Scheel, who leads the Free Democrats. Prominent in the talks which Longhair Elected justice Oi Peace LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Voters of this University of Kansas community trounced a far-out candidate for sheriff this week but another longhair was elected justice of the peace. "1 just stayed in the back- ground and tried to make as lillle noise as said Phillip C. Hill, 23. who said he thus avoided a write-in cam- paign against him as IIP ran unopposed on the Democratic ticket. George K i m b a 11. the b e a r (I e d. cowboy-outfitted Democratic candidate for sheriff, who promised to work for legalization of marijuana and LSD, garnered Votes lo nearly Mi.000 for Republi- can Uex Johnson, the winner. Hill picked up votes. The functions of Hill's office are restricted by a 1965 act of the slate legislature to per- forming marriages and pre- siding in civil suits for dam- ages of less than Hill said he expected a lot of "50-ceht lawsuits charging harassment by police, pollu- tion and mental cruelty by slum landlords." He also said he will perform group marriages, marriages for homosexuals and hetero- sexual marriages "although the latler will cosl extra." Hill doesn't know yet where his "poor people's court" will hold sessions. The new justice of (he peace has been homeless since sell- ing his old station wagon. produced the recent Russian West German friendship treaty Scheel currently is bringing hi personal influence to bear on the negotiations with the Poles a people with painful of Nazi aggression in the Seconi World War. The Poles have had mixed feelings about Bonn's Ostpolitik up to now. For one thing, the Borai-Mos cow agreement was the occa sion for many in Warsaw to re call the Stalin-Hitler non-ag gression pact of 1939. That treaty proved the basis for Soviet acquiescence when Hitler sent his armies marching to Warsaw shortly after its sign ing. FEAR RESULT Moreover, in so far as the present-day Ostpolitik means better relations between West and East Germany, the Poles fear it may promote the ulti- mate reunification of the two Germanics, with all the upset such a development would imply for the European balance of power and for Poland in par- ticular. Thus, during their current i talks with the West Germans, Polish delegates have been pressing hard for Bonn's formal 1 recognition of the line consisting of the Oder and Neisse rivers as the permanent western frontier of Poland. The West Germans have re- plied that formal recognition must come from the Big Four, as part of an all-German peace conference. Bonn, on Ihe other hand, wants Poland to make it possi- ble for persons of Ger- man background living in that country's western areas to set- tle in the federal republic if they see fit. Such points of contention are bitter ones of long standing but the general pattern of events in and the promise of in- creased trade between Poland and West Germany are appar- ently serving as solid incentives tn progress in the Bonn-Warsaw negotiations. "This same journalist (Mr Kyan) is urging other journal ists to identify the 'top levc sources" which gave them tin information. "I would delighted if the journalists were to identify the 'top level sources on whicl they always base their false reports REPEATS QUESTION On Oct. 29, Roch Lasalle, Con servative MP for Joliette, re- turned to the same question. Mr. Trudeau said: For the past few days il has not been the government but rather the opposition and the press gallery that have been launching other rumors. Lei them take the responsibility for these and check their accu- racy." On Monday this week, Mr. Trudeau confirmed in the Com- mons what he had told report- ers the previous Friday, that he had had "solid information" all along about the provisional gov- ernment r.eport. He explained his original reply of Oct. 27 by saying: "Had I in this House, when asked about these rumors, said I knew nothing about them I would not have been telling the truth. "Had f confirmed them I would have been accused of spreading the rumors. There- fore I told the House I did not want to deny or confirm such rumors." On Tuesday, T. C. Douglas, NDP leader, said a number of members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery had stated on tel- evision that they got the rumors about a possible Quebec provi- ional government from persons highly placed in the govern- ment. M COMMENTS Mr. Trudeau commented: "It would' appear to me that last night the press began spreading some more rumors." On Wednesday, Mr. Trudeau said "the Canadian press had spread the rumor lately" that he had stated that Quebec would have to assume the full cosk of troops called out in the wovince at the request of the [uebec government. When Mr. Trudeau was first isked about this question in the Commons by Mr. Lasalle Oct. 28, he replied: "The matter is a legal one, but if I can reply, I believe the National Defence Art provides that, when a province requests the assistance of the armed forces in the form of civil as- sistance, the expenses of the op- eration are borne by that prov- ince." Mr. Trudeau added that "Quebec is supposed to know the law as well as Ottawa on this point. jooq to isTLOOK WHAT GAS DID FOR US TODAY!
