Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta A news analysis of the New York Times European unity still long way off PARIS The shock of the Middle Eastern Crisis and strain- ed Atlantic relations have given Western European governments a firm new impulse toward their long-receding goal of developing some political unity. The clearest and most specific demand for moving on from lip service to concrete measures came last week from Chancellor Willy Brandt. The West German addressing the Euro- pean a powerless by FLORA LEWIS forum with budgetary and legislative aspirations that have proved to be a mirage so a world whose destiny cannot and should not be determined by two super- powers the influence of a united Europe has become The sharpest and most bitter exposition of the European community's current ineffectuality came from the French foreign Michel who told the National Assembly that in its was nonetheless the target of the second front in the Middle East He was talking about oil. conflict underlined the weaknesses of European political Jobert adding that Europe assure itself of supplies of enriched iCmust multiply sources of co-ordinate organize the en- courage be less capricious in there must be fewer more in more Other in and out of office and in several have echoed the theme that the time has come to go from words to deeds in organizing the community as a force in the world. From particularly in the perception of Euro- pean importance has taken a noticeably anti-American tone.

The explanation given by Common Market officials in Brussels for the failure to agree on oil pooling is that it would be suicidal because it would only incite the Arabs to cut everyone's supplies. This has provoked charges of but the officials they are working slowly and quietly on aityl for1 the .time being at least governments have shown themselves willing to wait and see whether the urged by France will be effective enough to induce the Arab oil states to remove sanctions against Europe. Stories trickling back to Brussels from the Middle where a Dutch envoy is seeking relief from the total embargo against his report that the Arabs might be willing to relent if the Netherlands published her own pro-Arab statement in addition to having signed the one issued by the nine common market members. This diplomatic game is and in the Dutch case in it runs up against strongly pro-Israeli public opinion. But it does reflect a greater deeree of European policy co- ordination than before. The fact that the nine could even issue a joint statement on so controversial an issue has been hailed as historic for Europe.

Transport revolution confronts Parisians By JERRY TUTTLE PARIS A Second French Revolu- tion is being fought on and under the streets of Paris and the people are winning. The enemy this time is not the iron grip of royalty but of traffic congestion. One result of the struggle is that Paris has built one of the world's most ef- ficient and glamorous rapid transit ranking with Stockholm and Tokyo. Transportation prob- lems here mean automobile problems. In 1900 there were 2.447 of them rattl- ing over the cobblestones. Today there are three million in the metropolitan one for every three citizens. In the city proper there are parking including for only half the cars The other day two motorists were seen near the Champs-Elysees dis- puting claim to a bus stop. Mammoth un- derground parking pro- jects have' had'little effect on nor apparently does the gasoline price of a gallon. In the Paris prefect of police fears that expressways and new parking facilities may be merely luring more motorists to the city. It is an article of faith among traffic control experts that no Western city has ever succeeded in building parking spaces as fast as it has built autos. _ A Paris administrators have shown ingenuity and the willingness to spend great sums of money and labor to keep this 2.000-year-old town from freezing in a mass of metal. Reserved bus and taxi lanes some running counter to one- way avenues have helped raise bus speeds above the city-wide average of 6 mph. The first no-parking sign was erected in Pans in 1907 was im- mediately denounced as Today armies of meter maids for the color of their paper windshields with computerized bad news The traffic against all moves. But the real it was determined eight years lay underground. The city then launched a billion project to build a high-speed tran- sit system connecting central Paris by deep tunnels with the fast growing suburbs. Out- side the city above- ground are and of futuristic stations have been built Today electric- powered trains carry passengers at running speeds of GO mph into Hans. The 15-mile trip from the western ter- minus St. Germain-en- Laye to the at the centre of now takes just 22 minutes. The Rapid is linked with the traditional subway lines and the bus system. The ultramodern sta- tion at the the system's is 12 stories underground It is the length of nearly three football re- quired 2.5 million man hours to moves passengers an hour through a complex of moving underground elevators and cancell- ing their tickets electronically at stainless steel turn- stiles The complex move- ment of people and money is co- ordinated by a giant computer system of Honeywell the overseas affiliate of Honeywell Information Systems in the U.S. The computer system co- The with 453 46 miles of 51 stations.

The arms of the Rapid will be linked by but already that system carries passengers half of the former auto com- muters in the areas .served. Now Communications policies overhaul urged in study NEIL GILBRIDE OTTAWA An in- dustry-financed report in- stigated by Bell Canada says technology in tele- data-processing and other communications is fast outstripping government ability to deal with it and recommends an new look at national policies. Such a reassessment should cover government pricing and competition in the telecommunications says the 428-page report edited and partly written by economics professor H. Edward English of Calreton University here The released leans toward Bell Canada pro- posals in some and op- poses others. A chief recom- mendation-is for a new federal advisory body so that govern- ment officials will not be so dependent on telephone com- pany arguments and proposals on the complex subject. companies should we be 'chosen instruments' for mak- ing decisions in areas of fun- damental public the report says. Bell and other communica- tions firms would still con tribute to but the sug- gested advisory agency made up of independent experts in- cluding provincial university represen- tatives and others would prov- ide a permanent body of in- dependent expertise. The report says one fault of current government policy is looking at telecommunicat- ions as a group of separeate services for radio- telegraph and Telex whereas technology is increa- singly linking all such means of communications together. If forecasts an eventual sin- gle national electronic transmitting all forms of and says it should be federally con- trolled. believe that effective federal regulations requires that this entire highway be controlled within one central There would still be a role for provincial in some such aft the telephone systems in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The report also recommends separating ma- jor public communication ser- vices such as telephones and television from private com- such as those of individual industries. It would encourage as much com- petition and as little govern- ment regulation as in the latter. Some trunk telephone for ex- would probably always be that should con- tinue under strict federal with competition discouraged because duplica- tion might simply raise prices to consumers. But there could be regional competition in more densely populated areas able to sup- port two competing com- munications such as between Toronto and Montreal. Contributors to the report besides Mr. English are Carl E Beigie. executive director of the C. D. Howe Research J. L. associate professor of political economy at the University of Donald A. Carleton University dean of Manley economics professor at the University of New William B. law professor at Queen's John C. associate economics professor at Carle- W R. associate professor of business adminis- tration at and Harry M director of the In- stitute of Public Utilities at Michigan State University. STRESS ON TELEPHONES The report is devoted large- ly to telephone service. One of its recommendations on pric- ing is to install meters on local telephones in place of the current system of flat monthly rates for an un- limited number of calls. It says present long distance phone charges are higher than they should be in order to sub- sidize low local charges. Meters would distribute ac- tual costs more fairly ac- cording to it is said. The report anticipates con- siderable public opposition to using meters on local phone calls. It suggests providing metered service as an alter- native while raising flat-rate monthly telephone bills to en- courage customers who use their phones less to choose the meters. The report also backs Bell Canada's current bid for au- thority to charge customers for directory assistance when the number asked for is in the phone book and to raise rates for telephone installation. urges an index to permit more frequent rate increases when a company's costs in- or lower rates if costs decline. But the report says Bell Canada's objections to divorc- ing itself from its equipment- manufacturing Northern Electric are un- derstandable if Bell is en- able it its full potential as Canada's major telecommunications equip- ment VANTA'S ECONOMY MEATS 904-7th Avenue S.
