Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE ItTHMIOGE HERAID Wednesday, November 27, 1972 SIX VACANCIES PM re-organizing liis office By VICTOR MACKIE Ileralil Ottawa Burcnif OTTAWA Pierre Tmdoau's office stalE will be soon luirtcrRuintJ a if--- ganiza'ion Mare Lalondc the principal hind-tile-scenes policy advisor having departed u i u in Quebec as a member of par- liament. Six key people in tlie prime minster's otfire, including Mr. Lalondc. have left his staff. Mr. Truclcau v.-ill start to work re-organizing bis oifice staff after he has rebuilt his cabinet. The announcement nf the new cabinet is to be made within a week. One of Mr. Trudeau's special assistants, Gordon Gibson, re- signed early this year to contest the Vancouver South con- stituency made vacant by Vet- erans Miivster Arthur Laing being elevated to the sen- ate. Mr. Gibcon Failed lo win the real but is cxpeded to run Plain in the next general elec- tion. Another special assistant, (Francis Fox, resigned lo seek election in the Quebec con- stituency of Argenteuil-Dou-x KwilaEnes. He was successful. Jacques Olivier, a special at- sislanl, nlso quit his PMO post to seek election. He was suc- cessful in the Quebec seal of Longueuil. A special assistant Tom D'Aquhro. quit after the election and has gone abroad. The chief of the regional desks and former weslcni re- gional adviser Dave Thompson also resigned after the election. He had planned lo leave the PMO and moved 't Edmonton prior to the vote. He has accepted a business post in that cily. The executive assistant, to the prime minister Tim Porleoiis. had been planning to leave the PMO after the election. How- ever in view of the results and the departure of several ex- perienced staff members he has stayed on in lus psrition for the time be'ng. The program secretary Jim Davey is still at his post in the prime minister's office as is special assistant Ivan Head, a chief trouble shooter for the prime minister. Mr. Ti-udean had built up the largest PMO slaff in the history of Canadian government, far exceeding (lie number his pred- ecessor L. B. Pearson had on Hie job. the present prime minister will replace all those who have departed re- mains to be seen. Tlie remainder of the staff consists of the following: Miss Mary Macdonald, adminis- tration assistant; J. M.

Vorster made his proposal early this month during conver- sations with D. Alfred Escher, personal representative of United Nations Secreta-7 Gen- eal Kurt Waldheim. In a conference Monday with about 25 political correspond- ents of South African news- papers in Pretoria, Vorster said he hoped that discussions with the United Nations over the south-west Africa controversy would continue. But even if the talks broke down, he said, he would "seriously consider" ad- opting the proposal as a "fu- ture basis for Soulh-Vfest At- USE YOUR WOOLCO CHARGE CARD FOR ALL YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!

U.S. will honor accord to clean Great Lakes By nOD CURRIE WASHINGTON (CP) There will be no backing away by President Nixon from the com- mitments tha United States made in the agreement wilh Canada to clean up the Great Lakes, says William Ruck- elshaus, administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency He reiterated in a news con- ference the slrnd tlie Nixon ad- ministration has taken on the Great Lakes issue throughout the controversy over the new U.S. water-pollution control "It is a solemn agreement by the president and Canada to meet this he said In reference to the Great Lakes program signed by Nixon and Prime Minister Trudeau during the president's visit to Ottawa last April. Noting a shortage of funds for U.S. waler-pollulion control, he said Ihere is a need to set prior- ities "and a very high priority was set for the Great Lakes." Ruckelshaus spoke Monday following a day-long meeting with state and local representa- tives on details of the water-pol- lution control bill which passed Congress but was vetoed by Nixon, who termed U "budget- wrecking" since it authorized an astonishing billion over the next three years. OVER-RODE VETO Subsequently Congress voled overwhelmingly to over-ride the veto by Nixon, who had origi- nally proposed to spend bil- lion a year Tor three years. Ruckelshaus' mention of pri- orities, despite the fact Ihe bill eventually passed, was inter- preled by some observers as a reference to Nixon's earlier warning that if Congress "ram- med" it through he would use all the powers of the presidency lo restrict. Ihe amount ot money ac'ually spcnl.

Fusion research program sought by 5 Quebec firms By JEFF CARRUTIIEHS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A consortium of five Quebec research in- stitutions has asked the federal government lo take a first, big step towards hamassing the raw power ot the H-homh and controlling fusion to produce electricity. The Quebec consortium proposed the government fi- nance a one-year, 5235.000 feasi- bility study, to define a national fushlon research program for Canada. A senior official of the federal science ministry has confirmed that Uie government will be de- ciding on the proposal "within a matter of a few days." It was submitted during the summer. Such a feasibility study by the Quebec group would be fi- nanced by the science ministry. At the end of the study, the gov- ernment would then be provided a number of options on likely wnvs lo actually launch a co- ecdina'.ed fusion research pro- pram for Canada, alonr; estimated costs and benelils. With any luck, such fusion re- search would pave the way for controlling fusion reactions in the future in Canada much in the same manner as today's fis- sion reactions are harnessed in Canadian nurlenr reactors lo produce electricity. The difference between iission ard fusion Is essentially the same as the difference between tt.c A-Bomn and the H-Bomb In terms of I ho power released, Fusion involves joining atoms, to produce heavier atoms. Fusion Is now regarded a.i tile power source one step beyond today's nuclear power reactors and, for some nations, tomor- row's fast breeder nucear reac- tors. Dr. Glllcs Cloulicr, director ol research lit Quclicc's in- Mituto ol Research nenr Mon- treal, said Monday Hint with Canada's larpc scale in- vestment in cleclvicnl it h Imporlnnl fo" Canndn lo bo In the position to use the lysl tech- nology when it becomes avail- able. This nienns that Canadian scl- enUsl.s must do (lie research nnd then Ux> development work if Canada Is to be In such B po- sition. He noted that Canada "Is the only industrialized country that I know ot in tlie world at the moment that does not have a national program of fusion re- search." Canada, he said, has some fu- sion research already being done. Much of it is concentrated at the five Quebec research In- stitutions: Hydro Quebec's re- search institute; the Defence Researcli Establishment at Val- cartier HCA Limited of Montreal, In its research lab- oratories; the .physics depart- ment at the University of Mon- treal: and Ihe centre of re- search on energy ot the Univer- sily of Quebec. There is nlso research on fu- sion heinK done at Ihe Univer- sity of British Columbia, in Sas- katchewan, and at the Univer- sity of Alberta. But it all needs to be co-ordinated and ex- prrrlccl. Canada already possess an important lead in of lrcy technologies now believed es- sential for controlling ca'bon dioxidc-tvpe high-power lasers, called TEA lasers, in- vented by DREV scientists and now developed by Na- tional Resoarcl) Council scien- lisls and being produced by Ot- tawa and Quebec Cily firms. Perhaps the most promising method for conlrolling fusion would Involve using a high-pow- ered gas laser (or a com- bination of lasers) to spark fu- sion in pellels of frozen deute- rium. Deuledum is a slightly- heavier form of hydrogen, which in turn Is the main fuel for the fusion processes taking place in the sun. Deuterium oxide Is called heavy water. The small deuterium pellets would be dropped into a sphe- rical steel chamber containing a liquid metal such as liUu'um. The fusion in the pellet sparked by the laser would heat up nearby molten lithium, and the hot lithium could then be passed through a heat ex- changer: for power production. It's an oversimplification. But scientists in Ihe U.S. and Russia now seem convinced it will work, whereas tlie old idea of trying to control a gas fusion reaction in a magnetic field "bottle" seems to have faded considerably in favor. Tie mag- netic "boHlc" coulrln't be hrM logelher Imp crouch for Ihe temperature lo become hot enough for fusion to start. A GAME HUXNER?
