Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta World hopes high for Nixon policy By CV FOX Canadian Press Slalf Writer President IWxon's landslide victory in the American election lias come as no surprise to the world at large. But there is much anticipa- tion about what new mementum the Nixon foreign policy might assume in the period imme- diately ahead. This is particularly the case In the matter of peace in Viet- nam, a few weeks possible even be- fore the election. It soon became obvious that, despite the highly-publicized in- ternational expeditions of presi- dential adviser Henry Kissin- ger, a Vietnam ceasefire was slightly less imminent than at first seemed the case. The Democrats quickly at- tacked the president's talk of "peace with honor" as a cyni- cal ploy. The months lo come should interesting insofar as they prove or disprove this allega- tion. SHIFT is IRONIC In any case, Nixon's last four years in the White House mark a significant period of develop- ment in American foreign pol- icy. Whether the president was an active agent in this change or no more than the instrument of greater historical forces, there is irony in the fact lhat Ameri- can moves towards reconcilia- tion with Mao Tse-fung's China and better relations with Russia should have been made during the incumbency of this one-time crusader against world commu- nism. The latest instance of an eas- ing in the chronic tensions asso- ciated with the cold war period has been the agreement be- tween the East and West Ger- man governments on a basic treaty which would establish a large degree of normality in their mutual relations. Even this could not have come without at least the ac- quiescence of Washington. EYES ON EUROPE What will engage the atten- tions of most European diplo- matic observers is the extent to which Washington facilitates the holding of the projected Eu- ropean security gether with such agreements as those governing mutual and bal- anced force reductions in Eu- rope. Yet predictions about what Nixon now is calling "a new generation of peace" also ex- tend to the Middle East. In" Tel Aviv, new American moves aimed at finding a solu- tion to the Middle East crisis are being suggested despite the lack of optimism about their speedy success Thus, hopes around the world are cautiously high for the next half of Nixon's term, even though tome of the reservations about the president personally seem to Ire widely shared.

Poster in background says "Power to the Soviels." Ocean pollution battle started TORONTO (CP) Officials of the Onlario ministry of traas- portation and communication say a growing number of used car dealers and mechanics are falsifying used car mechanical fitness certificates. The officials say there may be thousanls of vehicles with worn tires, faidty brakes, fum- ing exhausts, and broken wind- shield wipers travelling the highways because of the phoney certificates. Murray Hattin, manager of the ministry's vehicle inspection branch, says the government may be losing the battle with the "bad actors." The office is getting about 150 complaints each month about used cars officials say there may be hundreds more unreported. j H. J. Aiken, another official in the branch, says compulsory safety checks would be cos'.ly bscai'se "we would be in- specting too many fit ones to i get at the unfit." Buyers of used cars must present a mechanical fitness certificate before the ownership of the car is transferred. R. G. MacCormac, registrar of motor vehicle dealers, says at this point the fraud can be- gin. He explains that a dealer may buy a car for but finds it needs 5200 in repairs. To realize a profit, the dealer skips the repairs and issues the certificate. If the dealer is caught he usu- ally can get away with a min- imum fine or loss of regis- tration for short periods on sub- sequent offences. These usually are treated as normal operating expenses.

Phone 328-5447 LONDON (CP) Canada, on the n? hand, and the United States and France, on the ether, arc locked in a fierce negotiat- ing battle over the development of a convention to restrict ocean pollution, informants said here. At the heart of the reported struggle is a question of juris- diction over ocean-going traffic and the asserted right of some of the nuclear powers to con- tinue to dump radioactive waste in flic oceans under "emer- gency" conditions. The Canadian delegation, headed by Alan Beesley of the external affairs department, is reported to have concluded that unless there is a last-minute change of attitude, the con- vention that emerges will have little for Canada and other coastal stales, j Informants said strong words have been exchanged belu'nd closed doors at Lancaster House where delegates from some 90 countries have been trying for almost two weeks to reach a compromise that will fit the anti-pollution spirit of Stockholm. It at I lie United Nations anli-pollution conference at Stockholm last June that jubi- lant Canadian officials felt tlrcy were making headway in seek- ing (he right of coastal stales to prosecute ships flying the flag of another country if they pol- lute the oceans nearby. CONCEPT OPPOSED But informants said thai as the LcnrJcn convention confer- ence progrcsreti it became ap- parent that the flag states, led by the U.S., were strongly op- posed to that concept. They insisted that if a ship is caught polluting (be oceans, a complaint should Ire sent to "the country of stale in which the ship is regis- prosecution would take place. I The Canadian delegates, who arc convinced they have the support of a majority of the countries at the conference, fear that ,n mere complaint will not bring much action from the flap stales. Informants said the Cana- dians were prepared to com- promise, advocating that the coastal anri flag slates "share" jurisdiction on the high seas in areas adjacent to the coastal .stales. That would allow either group or both lo launch prose- cutions. But the flag slates rc- I fused lo agree. Development of a convention ocean pollution has spread over a two-year period wil'i mcc'inps in various cen- tres aimed at the drafting of a convention which many dele- gates hoped would be completed J j led ay. Informants said it now ap- pears that hard bargaining will stretch the conference into 1 the weekend in the hope that a completed document will emerge Monday. Under the convention concent, (he drive against pollution would he hnsrrl on a black list, items which r !d not be dis- charged into the and a prey list, items which might be rigid controls, j The black list would include .such items as nuclear waste j nrd chemicals which do dis-} integrate and can harm living Ihrnuph the food chain.

As the neyotiating struggle continued, Canadian bitterness was rryorlpd lo have in- creased by the sudden in- troduction by some nuclear powers of a proposed oscnpc clause which would allow (lie dumping of radioactive wnstc under emergency conditions.
