Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE LETHBRIDGI HERALD Tuesday, November 10, 1970 Quebec visitloug re member created furore in 1967 MONTREAL (CP) Gen, Charles tie (iaiillc was blamed by some ami credited by others for the upsurge in Quebec sepa- ratism and nationalism in the last three years. The former French president, who (lied in France Monday night of a heart attack, caused an international furore when he came to Canada on an official visit in 19B7 and promptly made what many considered was a deliberate intrusion into Cana- dian political affairs. He came primarily to visit Expo 67, the first world's fair ever held in Canada, but the complexion of the visit quickly changed when he was caught up in the enthusiasm of a separa- tist-orienled crowd in front o! Olson says farmers to bear some costs OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture the Canadian wheat board has Minister H. A. Oton refused in the Commons Monday to agree to absolve wheat fanners of all the costs of eliminating the "rusty beetle" from wheat ship- ments abroad. When former prime minister John Diefenbaker pressed Mr. Olson to stale that the farmers would not be, charged, the agri- culture minister replied: 'We intend to do everything we can to co-operate with the farmers." But the farmers bore some responsibility.

Ill CHARGE ACCOUNT" Not enough says railway union chief WASHINGTON (AP) A key union official has spurned a Wiite House board's recom- mendation for the largest wage settlement in U.S. railway his- tory a 36-per-cent pay in- crease over three years for more than workers. "Its not enough, said C. L, Dennis, president of the Broth- erhood of Railway and Airline Clerks, after the recommenda- tion was made public Monday. Ths panel called for boosting the average wage of the work- ers from the current 53.68 hour- ly level to over the life of the contract. Dennis, however, said the recommendations of the five- member board, appointed by President Nbton to head off threatened nationwide rail strike, could serve as the basis for further talks. Under the Railway Labor Act, tha earliest the unions could strike is a.m. Dec. 10. )ledged to fumigate the wheat, Mr. Olson said the ;overn- ment is working with the prov- inces in an attempt to wipe out he beetle. A seminar had been icld on the subject in February at the agriculture department ;esearch station in Winnipeg. Information had also been sent ,o farmers and elevators. Answering a question by Alt Jleave Mr. Olson said the govern- ment is trying to increase inspection of railway cars carrying grain before they reach terminal elevators. Outside the House, Mr. Olson told reporters that rusty beetles can crop up in shipments of anip gram, All the grain needs "is a little cleaning and airing and it is suitable lor all purposes, for which they (the customers) pur- chased it." There had been some diver- sion of grain shipments from the West Coast to Thunder Bay, Ont., where there were belter fumigation facilities. The cost of cleaning the wheat would probably not be more than one cent a bushel. Two brothers are arrested LEDUC (CP) Two broth- ers Were arrested Monday night In connection with the shooting death earlier in the evening of Harvey Schiewe, 32, a chicken farmer in the new Sarepta arsa, about 24 miles southeast of Edmonton. RCMP said Mrs. Schiewe telephoned them and said two men had stopped her on the street, threatened to break the windshield of her car and warn- ed her there would be a. shoot- ing. While a police car was on the way to pick up the woman, Mother call came from neighbor advising that there had been a shooting at the farm house. RCMP set up road blocks and two men were arrested shortly after. Their names were with- held. CAPRI Policeman is killed NEW YORK (AP) A 19- year veteran police sergeant was fatally shot during a Har- lem gun battle Monday night, the ninth city policeman to be killed in the line of duty this year. Sgt. Henry Triistta, 45, wa. shot as he and his partner stopped to question two men getting into a taxi. Trustinj who died three hours later, fired six shots.

Condition good VANCOUVER (CP) Har- old Winch, New Democratic Party MP for Vancouver East, is in satisfactory condition in Vancouver General Hospital where he is recuperating from an operation.

The action was consi- dered unprecedented. Miffed, General de Gaulle cancelled a planned visit to Ot ;awa and returned to France and from there carried on a dip- omatic war against the Cana- dian government. Shortly before his departure, C was guest at a luncheon ;endered by the City of Mont- In a brief speech, he told of France's love for what he de- scribed as the French of Can- ada and how his government planned to help Quebec pre- serve its language and its cul- ture and strengthen its ties with Prance. Mayor Jean Drapeau of Mont- real stood to reply and in what many considered to be the most outstanding speech of his career lie reminded the general that French-Canadians had built up society for 200 years with- out any help or interest from France. Mr. Drapeau said French-Ca- nadians realized that their des- iny was in North America and not in Europe. At a news conference on his return to France, President de Gaulla said: 'In Montreal, the second French city in the world, which was the eiid of my journey, the upsurge of passion for liberation was such that it was a sacred duty for France to respond, without hesitation and solemnly. SPOKE OF SUPPORT This is what I did, when tell- ing the multitude assembled around the city hall that France does not forget her children in Canada that she loves them, that she is determined to sup- port them in their efforts- for liberation and progress and that in return she expects them to help her in the world ot today and tomorrow The general increased rela- tions with Quebec through cul- tural and educational agree- ments. Quebec premiers and cabinet ministers were invited to Paris for frequent consulta- tions and were treated as repre- sentatives of an independent state. The French government vir- tually ignored the Canadian am- bassador in Paris. French gov- ernment official! visiting Quebec pointedly ignored Ot- tawa, discarding the norma" diplomatic practice of giving the federal government advance notice of their visits. Helatiens between Paris anc Ottawa have improved since the general's retirement, but politi- cal observers predicted the wounds he inflicted would be slow to heal as long as he re- mained in the background. TV freakout probe starts LONDON (AP) Television chiefs began an investigation today into the violent hippie freakout during the weekend David Frost show that could have far-reaching effects on live telecasting in Britain. Tough security guards at tele- vision studio doors were seen as one possible outcome. Another could be a decision to record for pre-broadcast editing the few live interview shows remaining on British television. Another issue is whether to give exposure to anarchists. Harold Soref, Conservative member of Parliament, blamed the fracas, seen by an esti- mated 17 million viewers, on ATTENTION l.D'S, MEMBERS AND OTHERS INTERESTED IN HISTORY Have you obtained a copy of The Hisory of the Mormon Church in Canada This is o Wslory of aveiy brcnch, ami mis- sion across Canada, beginning m 1829.

Bargainers resume auto contract talks DETROIT (AP) Bargainers for the United Ante Workers and General Motors Corp. planned to resume contract talks today after a 17-hour nego- tiating session failed to produce a settlement of an eight-week- old strike. The negotiators had met from S a.m. EST Monday until a.m. today, breaking only for meals. CM Vice-President Earl Bramblett and UAW President Leonard Woodcock had no com- ment as they left the bargaining suite at the GM midtown De- troit headquarters. Highly-placed sources had ex- pressed optimism Monday that settlement was imminent. Negotiators are working under great pressure since GM has said that it agreement is not reached today, production at the world's largest industrial corporation could not resume until Dec. 1, and that any pro- longation of the strike could push the start-up date into the new year.
