Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Letfibridge Herald Third Suction Tethbriclge, Alberta, Saturday, November 7, 1970 Pages 27-34 Press Corps Rapped Economy 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 Denton Ltd. say in their annual Blue Book investment Remain The 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 time for business investment. The Blue Book says the Says economy will run below potential in 1971 with a real growth rate of three to 'Hi per cent. "High unemployment will be the central issue of economic the report says, "yet Canadian iiufhorilics will not jeopardize the progress in containing Inflation by overly-expansionist policies. "Unemployment is high and rising in b o t h countries. Industrial production is sluggish. The consumer has little fundamental confidence in the future." False Reports Initiated Accuses Prime Minister By DAVE AlclNTOSH OTTAWA (CP) Four times in tbs last week Prime Minister Trudeau in the Commons lias accused the press of initialing or spreading rumors and false reports about the anti-terrorist campaign in Quebec. The subject fist arose Oct. 27 when Opposition Leader Robert Stanficld asked whether Hie government had proclaimed the War Measures Act Oct. 16 partly on the grounds thai it believed an influential group of Quebecers wanted to supplant t h e 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. Tradeau and the fed- eral government of "making up the story of a conspiracy to overthrow Mr. Bourassa and re- place him with ail 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 lo addressing ths press at fhe Western in San Clemente, Calif. The president and his wife have three dogs. New Stage Developing For Brandt's Policies By CV 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 2 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 weeic. 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 nf action. Brandt has been con- 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, Ihe 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 Uie moves to make Brandt's Ostpoliiil; a reality is Foreign Minister Wal- ter Scheel, who leads (be Free Democrats. Prominent in the talks which Longhair Elected justice Of Peace LAWRENCE, Ivan. (AP) Voters of this University of Kansas community trounced a far-out candidate for sheriff this week but another longhair was elected justice of fhe peace. "I just stayed in the back- ground and tried to make as liltlc noififi as possible.'' said Phillip C. Hill, 23. who said he thus avoided a write-in cam- paign against him as he ran unopposed on the Democratic lickcl. George K i in b a 11, Ihe b e a r d e d. rowboy-oiiliitted Democratic candidate f o r sheriff, who promised to work for legalization of marijuana and LSD, garnered voles In nearly Ifi.OOO lor Kepubli- can Rex Johnson, the winner. Hill picked up votes. The 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 Ihe latter xvill cost extra." Mill 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 his personal influence to bear oa the negotiations with the Poles, a people rath painful memories of Nazi aggression in the Second World War. The Poles have had mixed feelings about Bonn's Ostjolitik up to now. For one thing, the Bonn-Mos- cow agreement was the occa- sion for many in Warsaw to re- call the Stalin-Hitter 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 ss the present-day Ostpolitilc 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 talks with the West Germans, (Polish delegates have bcem j pressing hard for Bonn's formal j 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 fif. Such points of contention are hitler ones of loiig standing but the general pattern sf events in and the promise of in- creased trade between Poland and West Germany ire appar- ently serving as solid incentives tn progress in Die Bonn-Warsaw negotiations. "This same journalist (Mr. Ryan) is urging other journal- ists to identify the 'top level sources" which gave them the information. "I would delighted if the journalists were to identify the 'top level sources on which they always base their false reports REPEATS QUESTION On Oct. 29, Roch Lasalle, Con- servative for Joliette, re- turned to the same question. Mr. Trudeau said: For the past few days it has not been the government but rather the opposition and the press gallery that 'nave been launching other rumors. Let 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 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 I confirmed them f would have been accused of spreading the rumors. There- fore I told the House I did not want to deny or confirm such nrmora." 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- sional government from persons highly placed in the govern- ment. PM COMMENTS Mr. Trudeau commented: "It would' appear to me that last night the press began spreading some njore 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 costs of troops called out in the province at the request of the Quebec government. When Mr. Trudeau was first asked about this question in the Commons by Mr. Lasalle Oct. 28, he replied: "The matter is t legal one, but if I can reply, I believe the National Defence Act 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 lhat "Quebec is supposed to know the law as well as Ottawa on this point. 1TL.OOK WHAT GAS DID FOR US TODAY! rSw We heated our nome fjejj plus ho( wafer for 3 baths 3 piles of dirty dishes and 3 loads of dirty clothes We dried ail these clothes automatically in our GAS .We also cooked 2 hot meals dryer for 2 adults and 3 children and cooked dinn'er outdoors on our GAS barbeq u e fptj for less than the price of one package of Canadian western natural gas company limited HONORING CANADA'S VETERANS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER llth Let Us Pause To REMEMBER THEM The Thousands who paid the supreme sacrifice See the special Remembrance Day Telecast on CJLH-TV Channel 7 MONDAY, NOV. 9th to 6.-30 p.m. WE URGE THE PUBLIC TO ATTEND THE Remembrance Day Services, Wednesday, Nov. a.m. at the Civic Centre a.m. at the Cenotaph diked to at the legion Clubroems-9lh St. end 1st Ave. at a.m., Wednesday, November llth PARINTSI M.IASI NOTE: All parents having young people in the Remembrance Day Parade ore reminded that the youth sections will march directly to the Legion Memorial Hall and will disband at this point.
