Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta PARTLY CLOUDY" HIGH FORECAST WEDNESDAY 50 YOTTLXIV No. 2b'l he Lethbridg LETHBRIDGE, AL13KRTA, THURSDAY, 1971 PRICE NOT THREE SECTIONS 42 PAGES u.s. aid for Canada Canada favors recognition claim draws denial Martian dust storm rages PASADEiVA. Calif. (Rented The greatest Mar- tian dust storm in recorded history still is raging across the planet, a bonus for scientists but a disap- pointment for earthlings expecting dramatic pictures when the Mariner spacecraft gets there Saturday, mission scientists said Wednesday. The storm, now in its seventh week, has blanked out the whole face of the planet visible from earth and is clearing at an extremely slow rate. Dr. Brad- ford Smith of New Jle.xico Slate University told a news briefing. Smith, deputy principal investigator for the pro- gram to be conducted through Mariner's two televi- sion cameras, said the storm might hinder geological studies for a while, "but it will clear up sooner or later, for sure." Mariner is designed for an orbital mission of at least 30 days. Earlier, project director Dr. Dan Scbneiderman said the storm could moan that, the spacecraft's pic- tures of the surface from poim.i as low as 750 miles would only as clear as those taken through tele- scopes on Earth, which nmv i? more than 70 million miles from Mars. Great for scientists He said the unprecedented storm "is wonderful for most of the scientists a real coup hut fron: (lie public spectacle point of view it's rather grim." Earl Glaiin, of National Aeronautics and Space Ad- ministration headquarters in Washington, said a telex line had been established lo allow NASA and the So- viet Academy of Sciences to exchange information from Mariner and from the two huge Soviet probes, Mars 2 and 3, due to reach the planet a short time later. No specific arrival date has been given for the Russian probes, each of which weighs pounds five times as heavy as Mariner. Nor has the Soviet Union disclosed their objective. But Glahn said Wednes- day that in view of their weight, it is "entirely pos- sible" that they will land on Mars while Mariner is in orbit above The one-room school not a backward step OCRACOKE. N'.C (AP) Residents of isolated Ocracokc Island see their new one-room school as a step into modem education, not, a step backwards in time. All of the islands' 68 schoolage youngsters attend Grade 1 through .1? in the new S100.000 juniper wood structure. The building has a central, common-use room and alcoves on four sides. The faculty of five, including principal John R. Tucker, thinks ifs ungraded concept is an indication of progress. Until spring Ocracofco. youngsters vent to a five-room frame school.

A Canadian embassy source says if isn't so. The document was inserted in the Congressional record by Jtepresentalive .lohn R. Rarick, a right-wing Democrat from Louisiana who said billions of dollars in foreign aid had been "poured out through the diplo- matic trough since intended to influence votes arid friends in the UN." But in fact the money had only made enemies, he said. The document, listing foreign assistance for 127 countries from 1964 through 1071, says S7.3 billion went to figure the British embassy says is far "out of line" with any of their calculations. A British spokesman said all short- and medium-term leans have been paid off On long-term loans- some of them dating back to the First World S5 bil- li'cn remains but were paid off under an agreement with the U.S. There was Sl.M billion tn t'.S. Export-Impo-t Bank loans, IRELAND LISTED Ireland, a country said to have particularly annoyed the American UN delegation with its China vote, is listed for ?105.7 million. An embassy spokesman says Ireland re- ceived S128 million iji post-war recovery loans between IWS-.5I, but this is being repaid with interest. It did, however, re- ceive S18 million in grants for agriculiural, educational and other projects in the same pe- riod. The detailed five-page tabula- tion, listing a total of S38.5 bil- lion, was put together by the staff of Representative Otto E. Passman, a Louisiana Demo- crat and chairman of the House foreign operations subcommit- tee on appropriations. The Canadian source agreed with the subcommittee" figure but said it wasn't, aid The breakdown was S34.7 million in loans to Canadian corporations from the Export-Import Bank and S13.1 million in military as- sistance. Of (his S47.8 million total, 51.3 million in interest paid by Canada was deducted, Sealing million. Export-Import Bank loans to Canada and ether countries, however, are in fact designed to stimulate U.S. exports since the money must be spent here. As for the military assistance, the source said it was a special loan of U.S. military equipment made as a result of the U.S.- Canada military-sharing ar- rangements in (lie mutual de- fence field. 7'hese "loans" were repaid with Uie return nf the equipment, the source said, of two Split In for surprise SWANSEA.

UNITED KATIO.NS (CP) The delegation, of the People's Republic of China will be ac- corded the unprecedented honor of being greeted by a special meeting of (he 131-country Gen- eral Assembly. It is not certain whether the session will be held Friday or Monday. The main part of (lie 50-inem- ber delegation arrives in New York today. It is assumed that most of the flay will be spent settling into their quarters on the Htli floor of the Roosevelt Hotel in mid- town Manhattan and that Chiao Kuan-boa, deputy foreign minis- ter, and his colleagues will lurn up here for work Friday or Monday. The Clu'nese have taken over about M rooms and three or four offices comprising half the 141 h floor of the Roosevelt. It is costing the Chinese S1.200 a day for this accommodation which is to last them until they can rent a building for their mission here. POLICE GUARD MOTEL fcr their money tbev get a color television set in every i-oom as well as one extra sen- "rented ior security from New York police, with special direct line telephones to local police stations and a guard on every entrance to tbe hotel. They are likely to face one of the biggest press and television turnouts New York has wit- nessed when they land at Ken- nedy airport. The delegation is scheduled to arrive on two Air France flights from Paris, with the first group comprising 22 diplomats and of- ficials, including mission'5 leader Chiao and Huang Hua, former ambassador to Canada wh o becomes permanent repre- sentative here, due at noon EST. China's alternate representa- tive, Chang Yung-kran, and others are due on the second flight. They were to be greeted by Albanians and Romanians, among the major fighters for Peking's admission here, UN" protocol officials, groups froia pro-Peking and anti-Peking or- ganizations in New York Cily and a small number of Ameri- can officials who have been de- scribed as anything but greet- crs.
