Still hungry for top job Turner aims to be PM By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Contrary to some recent reports that Finance Minister John Turner had given up on his ambition to one day become prime minister of old cam- paign friends of the 44-year- old politician insist that he's still hungry for the nation's top job and in probably closer to it than he's ever been before. Mr. Turner's staunch allies and once you become ad- dicted to the Turner charisma you're addicted for life believe that the finance minister is the only senior Liberal 'clean' enough to win votes for the party coast-to- coast. can eliminate every other leadership possibility for various reasons and no GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE WEDNESDAY SUNSET H LPre Ltthbridge......14 -5 Pincher Creek... 25 20 Medicine Hat 14 -10 .01 Grande Prairie 12 -4 Edmonton 5 -2 Calgary......... 15 7 .01 Saskatoon...... 9 -5 Regina........ 11 -7 .01 Winnipeg....... 19 -2 .44 Victoria 42 39 .57 Penticton....... 33 29 .04 Prince George 20 15 .36 Kamloops.......30 25 .04 Vancouver......35 32 .53 Toronto......... 40 24 Ottawa.........29 26 Montreal 33 27 St. John's.......32 23 Halifax.........40 25 Charlottetown 33 27 Fredericton..... 34 18 Chicago 50 43- New York 53 34 Lethbridge Medicine Hat Variable cloudiness.

The Liberal leadership is within his grasp now being a little more mature than he was in he's doing nothing to spoil his says a close friend. Liberals are delighted when they hear such Progressive Conservatives as Alberta Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Don Getty praising Mr. Turner's at- in negotiations. Most Liberals figure the next prime minister after Pierre Elliott Trudeau has to be from English-speaking Canada. This has nothing to do with -a'ny1 so-called anti- Quebec although old party men are furious at the way Mr. Trudeau has an- tagonized the but is more or less based on the French one English the French the next philosophy. All this rules out for next time Health and Welfare Minister Marc close friend and ad- visor to Mr. who at 'the same time has a brilliant politic mind has a great sense of humor and lots of gallic charm. At one time Energy Minister Donald Macdonald was looked on as a possible leader. the fact that he likes antagonizing and up- setting evidenced once more by the Alberta energy rules him out. Justice Minister Otto the only Liberal from Saskatchewan was once rated highly. But all the bubbling personality and charm of his pretty wife Adrian doesn't hide the fact that Mr. Lang himself is a pretty dour and uninspiring his academic brilliance. So again and again you are left only with Mr. the man who has won election to the House of Commons in constituencies in both French and English-speaking the man who has survived the traditional portoUo of has handled other portfolios with and who still has the matinee idol good looks of a young but not too young Cary Grant. Like everyone veteran Turner devotees believe the writing is on the wall for Mr. Trudeau and it's only a matter of time before the voters kick him out or the party does. they are hoping Western what Western Liberals there still are that will speed up the prime minister's demise. They'd like to see Westerners pushing big for a leadership convention and are convinced that if they got a leadership race Mr. knowing humiliation was quite likely at would bow out even before it started. They also think far from the popular conception that the prime minister and Mr. Turner regard each other with some Mr. Trudean in fact realises he has favors to return to the finance minister. At the 1968 leadership convention Mr. despite vigorous appeals from both Robert Winters and Paul Hellyer for remained neutral after it became obvious he wasn't going to make It himself and so allowed the Trudeau forces to win the War perspective can be examined AD AMI KUUDT It is possible sww to a- the fourth Arab-Israeli war In the perspective of preceding Arab-Israel The similarities and. differences among these wars the real nature of the current attempt to bring about an Arab-Israeli and the prospects for its success of failure. In agreement between the-United States and the Soviet Union led to the birth of Israel. In addition to and money rushed to Israel by private groups in the United an important part of Israeli armament was supplied by air from with Soviet approval. Thus were Zionist aspirations achieved and Gen- tile consciences salved. The Soviet for its got the foil which subsequently has served well the purposes of Soviet Middle Eastern strategy. The lacking support from any of the great made futile military attempts to suffocate the nascent Israel. The Israelis skillfully used the tune as well as UN truces to oc- cupy Elath and key positions in Galilee. The year 1956 brought the first or preven- tive war. In the shadow of the abortive British-French attempt to reoccupy the Suet which President Nasser had the Israelis knocked out or cap- tured an impressive portion of the first large Soviet deliveries of arms to Egypt. The Russians threatened Paris and London if they did not withdraw and President Eisenhower won short-Jived popularity among the Arabs by agreeing with the Russians that Israel must withdraw from Sinai. The Israelis went back. Whatever its origins in Nasserite the 1967 six-day war turned out to be a preemptive coup in which the Israelis again wiped out a large part of the Arabs' Soviet-built planes and tanks. In the absence of any U.S.- Soviet no settle- ment followed and the Israelis remained in occupation of the West Bank of the Jordan and Sinai. The 22-day war of 1973 is really a continuation of the 1967 conflict. The Egyptians in effect cross- ing the Suez Canal and inflicting heavy losses on the Israelis. The Israelis counter- also cross- ing tiie inflicting even heavier'losses on the Egyp- tians and winding up in Suez with the Egyptian 3rd Army trapped. So the Israelis spoiled Presi- dent Sadat's military game plan. But Mr. Sadat non- etheless got what he really wanted. His object was not to defeat the Israeli not to liberate militarily the oc- cupied not to destroy Israel. He knew he could not do these things. His object was to bring about great power Interven- which he got with a vengeance. In contrast to the previous both the U.S. and the Soviet Union established aerial bridges to the com- weapons flown in by the two great powers were ac- tually used in combat within hours. Intervention reached such a point that the Soviet Union when it looked as though the Egyptians were on the brink of total to fly in airborne units to protect their clients. And the United taking a very serious view of the Soviet alerted not only the 82nd Air- borne Division and the Sixth but the worldwide re- cent U.S. military es- including ICBM's and nuclear bombers. Defense Secretary James R. Schlesinger may say that the U.S. and the Soviet Union were far from confrontation. But others would say that President Sadat's counterat- tack had triggered an exercise in superpower brinkmanship. As this confrontation was nearing its -Henry Kissinger flew to Moscow and reached an agreement with the Russians that resulted in the Security CouttcU cease- On of Oct. B. Several days of fighting daring which the Israelis made new gains. A few days later Dr. Kissinger was in the Mideast working out a five-point com- promise that hopefully might pave the way to a permanent peace. As a Dr. Kissinger is aware that in the past it has been when the United States and the Soviet Union were in agreement that the great historical turns in the affairs of the Middle East occurred. He is aware also that some serious students of the Arabs and Israelis doubt whether they could ever come to terms in direct negotiations. The thesis is that the role of ex- religious- nationalist forces on both sides is such that agreement by moderates is precluded un- less they are reinforced by the great powers. This analysis makes clear why the Israelis so much dis- like the idea of great power intervention and why Premier Golda Meir's objective in her recent Washington visit had to be to obtain reassurances from President Nixon that there will be no imposed settlement. But President Nixon already has let it be known during his last news conference that we will be ex- erting than in the past during the coming talks. Sunday ban on driving 'THE ASSOCIATED PRESS West Germany and Den- mark announced today plans to join the Netherlands and Belgium in outlawing Sunday driving to save oil during Western Europe's energy shortage. Denmark also ordered a one-fourth cut in sale of heating oil and limited use of electricity. Denmark's program was approved unanimously by a special parliamentary com- mittee 10 days after the country set 50-mile-an-hour speed limits on highways and 37-mile-an-hour limits on city streets to save gas. West Germany's Economics Minister Hans Friderichs said he has decided on speed limits of 63 miles an hour on super- highways and 50 elsewhere. Friderichs also appealed to West Germans for voluntary restraint in use of gasoline and heating oil.
