Old labor rift far from healed OTTAWA A 13-year rift between the Teamsters' Union and the Canadian Labor Congress may be far from healed in spite of steps toward a reconciliation. Congress officials said yesterday they have not heard from the Teamsters although the union's Canadian vice- Senator Ed Law- has said an application for reaffiliation with the CLC is to be made. There are suspicions among some congress officials that the Teamsters are trying only to allay fears among the Canadian members of the United Brewery workers aris- ing from an impending merger between the two un- ions. There are teamsters in Canada.

Thailand students new political foe By DANIEL SOUTHERLAND Christian Scieace Monitor Thailand Thailand's new civilian leaders are unlikely to make any radical changes in this country's close relationship with the United States any time soon. But they will now have to take into account the desires of the university students who have become a new political force. At the moment the students are more concerned with domestic issues than they are with foreign policy. Most of them do not seem to have carefully thought out their at- titudes toward U.S. aid to the Thai government and the American use of air bases in Thailand. Their position so far seems mostly to be against any abrupt change. But several of the top stu- dent leaders do say that it would be best if the United States gradually got all of its warplanes out of Thailand. A significant number of well educated persons outside the in both the government and private would agree with them. Thus while nothing dramatic is expected any time new demands for a change in foreign policy could begin to build up within a matter of months. Thailand's relationship with the United States could become an elec- tion issue. In the the new government is expected to move cautiously. .Prime Minister Sanya Thammasak has promised a constitution within six months and elections soon thereafter. This makes his government virtually a caretaker and Mr. Thammasak is not ex- pected to want to commit Thailand to any dramatic shifts in foreign policy before an elected government comes to power. The Prime Minister holds basically conservative foreign policy views. So does King Bhumiphol and the King's influence has grown markedly. But some voices are already calling for urging the. new government to play more than a caretaker role. is time this country moved to redefine its relations with nations abroad and to shrug off the condescending paternalism which the Americana have im- posed on wrote Thaweecnai L. Prasert in The one' of Bangkok's English language newspapers. students and the 1 public have shown time and again the wish to reduce the American influence in the country and the American military pretence the columnist wrote. move towards reduc- ing the American troop pretence here has already started but with the greatest it must be speed- ed Sombfti Ttumronfthanga- woof Thamrongthang- Secretary General oi the National Student says that Thailand should not depend on any foreign country for military support.' But some of his fellow student leaders say merely that the question of Thailand's relationship with the United States must be studied carefully before Thailand makes any changes in its foreign policy. think that few students have actually decided whether it's good for Thailand to have American or if there is really a threat to Thailand from China or North said one of the most articulate student leaders. think that Thailand should be more and I think that there should be a very gradual withdrawal of American bases. the students do not want something urgent or im- he said A withdrawal of all the U.S. forces in Thailand over a period of three he might be acceptable About most of them Air Force are currently stationed in Thailand. A gradual reduction began last and the U.S. and Thai governments agreed that the reductions should continue until they reached a level of about men. But it was not decided when that level should be reached. The United States' aim has been to keep a considerable number of warplanes in Thailand as long as the situa- tion next door in Vietnam and Laos remains unsettled.
