56 THE IfTHBRIuGE HERALD Wednesday, November 18, 1970 a receiving bal attention By CY FOX Canaclian'i'rcss Staff Writer Clilna's intensified moves to- waids belter relations with the rest of Ihc world have again been attracting wide attention as a result of the renewed ef- forts to gain (or the vast Asian country membership in the United Nations. Canada's recognition of the Peking government proved a highlight of the over-all trend of events, which reflects a wealth of motives among political lead- ers on both sides of the Bamboo Curtain. Albania and such Third-World countries as Algeria have long championed Peking's insistence on recognition of its rights as the seat of authority for main- land China's 700 million inhabit- ants. But a number of capitalist them Britain, Norway and pioneers among the states which at present recognize Mao Tse-ttmg's government. Hopes of lucrative trade with China, a potentially huge mar- ket for manufactured goods, played a big role in the thinking of many Westerners who fa- vored iliplomstic lies with Pe- king. These hopes took a beating with the coming of Mao's "cul-1 tural revolution" in the raid-1 1960s. NOW SEEK FRIENDS However that revolution, di- rected at a profound shakeup of Chinese life in all its facets, now has apparently spent iiself. And China, conscious of past conflict with neighboring Rus- sia and aware too of Japan's growing power, is again culti- vating relationships with osten- sibly unsympathetic parts of the outside world. This means resumption of its efforts to gain UN membership, with added incentive provided by diminishing American oppo- sition. The United States remains hostile to Mao's stipulation that admission of Peking will neccs- sarily mean expulsion from the UN of Chiang Kai-shek's For- mosa-based government. Yet Washington, in abandon- ing outright refusal of Peking's membership claims, seems to be counting on this degree of concession to Mao as an effec- tive way of undermining the So- viet position in world politics. SOVIETS NERVOUS The Russians are bound to be nervous about this U.S. move, favorable as it is to their rivals for control of the international Communist movement. Moreover, the realization that the day is edging clossr when Moscow's US delegation will have to face Mao's men along with antagonists from the West can hardly be a comforting thought for the Soviets. I Meanwhile, the Chinese have reason for satisfaction in their achievement of recognition by i Canada and Italy, with more j successes of this kind in pros-! pect. Peking's campaign of friendli-; ness towards outside countries was evident also in the fulsome I tributes it paid to the late Charles de Gaulle. In employing such ingratiat-; ing tactics, China appears to be manoeuvring against the potcn- j tial threat it feds from the; direction of Japan as well as j from Russia and the U.S. Reports from the Far East suggest the Chinese see in Ja- pan's growing economic strength the key to formidable military power now and in the years to come. Remembering the h o r r o r s produced by the war between the two countries a few decades ago, observers are wondering whether the future will see co- existence or new conflict be- tween China and Japan, with all that this means for Asia and the world at large. Neiv sexy perfume drives moths out of their minds WASH HiGTON (AP) Government scientists say a new sexy perfume drives male gypsy moUis so wild that the pests lose interest in females. Scientists hope the scent, called disparlure, can be used to trap tie destructive forest pests or so confuse them that they forget to mate. The power of the sex attrac- taut was demonstrated at a news conference here by Dr. Morton Beroza, an entomolo- gist. Slim cows best bets WASHINGTON (AP) Heav- ier cows may. be more buxom but their slimmer sisters are more bountiful and profitable, say dairy scientists. "Smaller cows have less body tissue to maintain, and so can put more of what they eat into miik the U.S. agri- culture research service re- ported. Researchers checked 15 years of milk production records for the department's 102-cow herd of Holsteins at the department's Beltsville, Md., experimental farm. They found that cows weigh- ing pounds earned above the costs of feed during a 305-day milking season, while those weighing or more earned only over feed costs. The Holsteins at the farm av- eraged pounds each. The study was made only on that single breed ot cows, officials Soviet Union makes protest LONDON (Renter) The So- xiet Union has made a counter- protest to Britain about a colii- son in the Mediterranean Nov. 9 between the British aircraft car- rier Ark Royal and a Soviet de- stroyer, British officials said today. Britain protested to the Soviet Union F r i d a y. The Soviet counter-protest was delivered to the British embassy in Moscow the following day. British officials said that the Soviet counter-protest note gave the Russian account of the inci- dent which did not correspond- ent to file British version. In its protest note Britain claimed the captain of the So- viet destroyer disregarded in- ternational regulations for pre- ventim.', collisions at sea. Two Russian sailors were drowned. Officials iiiteimed to give do- tails of (he Sonet note winch is under study at the foreign off- Ice. He fastened a male gypsy j moth at each end of a small i metal whirligig enclosed in a glass cage. The moths were j calm. Then Beroza gave them a whiff of disparfure. They sud- denly became frantic, flapped their wings and whirled the metal bar around and around. Asked what the moths were chasing, Beroza explained: I "There's supposed to be a fe- J male at the end of that rain- bow." After few minutes, looking droopy and worn-out, the moths closed their wings and perched quietly. The moths were imported in 1869 by a Massachusetts experi- menter. Several escaped and since have been riddling trees and shrubs in the northeastern United States. Officials say they j could spread across the conti- j nent i Ky predicts U.S. role over soon WEST POINT, N.Y.
