12 TH! lETHBKIDGE HERALD Wodnciday, November 11, 197Z- West and East both guilty of arms sales violations By CY FOX Canadian rrrss Slaff Writer Heeling in Paris between Lib- yan Prime Minister Jaltoud ami top French officials provide a new demonstration rf how both Western and Comnumisl coun- tries continue lo be deeply in- as amis suppliers in the Middle East. Leading French rcprcscnla- tivcs seemed lo play down the arms aspect nl Hie talks in their subsequent public statements. One stressed economic ques- tions rather than matters con- nected with lire selling of arms by France to Libya, now re- garded as probably Ihe most j militant of Ihe Arab rountvics concerned with the (iphl ag.iinst Israel, The official Paris announce- ment Ilio ovo.r all spirit of Kniik'it-Lihyau co-oper- ation and warned nlwrvors atlainst losini1, sirjit of this in Uii'ir tulli Ihc military side. France eonlraclod 1M> to sell Libya 110 jets but Ihe deal has since been complicated by the agreement between the militant Arnh country and Egypt to form a new federation. That agreement obviously heightens fears that any arms sold to Libya will find their way i into n possible- renewal of (lie active battle between Egypt and Israel. The French publicly es- jprossiil Ihcir awareness of Ihis (act o[ the arms situation. But in nrilain there seemed lo Ix? worn- in some quarters that (he hire of commercial profit might prompt French ef- forts lo circumvent Lhe ban, es- tablished by Paris ilself. on any sale of arms to belligerent countries in the Middle East. The British concern is lied to commercial considerations as well as lo what is ostensibly Ihe of world powers as a I whole lo avoid an extended re- vival of Hie ground and air bal- llcs between Israel and its Arab neighbors. At the same lime, Hie Egyp- tians are trying lo find their way out of Ihc arms dilemnn resulting from Presidcnl Sa- dat's apparent repudiation of dependence on Moscow earlier Ihis year. The Egyptian chief of state, conscious of his vulner- able position in the domestic po- litical realm, has had to resume drawing on Russian military aid for lack of such help on a big scale from Western sources. It is reported that Ibc imme- diale future will see Sadat ob- taining military supplies from non-Communist countries. But Moscow will apparently con- tinue lo be Ms major supplier, even though impatient young of- ficers in Egypt regard (he Jlus- slan connection as prevcnling any decisive new effort lo smash the Israelis militarily. Tlie Russians seemingly arc interested in maintaining the present stale of "no war. no peace" in Ihe Middle Easl, a pragmatic policy thai clashes will!

Compounding the situation is Ihu reported possibilily of a new peace initialive in the Middle East of (he Uniled Stales, t-ad- lional arms supplier lo Israel and lately host to Defence Min- ister Moshe Dayan. Dayan's Washington visit in ilself was enough lo intensify speculation about President Nixon's intentions in Ilio Arab- Israeli conflict.

Dairies unhappy with fees hike CALGAHY (CP) Dairy companies are unhappy with a licence bylaw approved by city council, although fee increases for the dairies are still unde- termined. Council received a submis- sion from Alpha Milk Co.-, Palm Dairies Ltd. and Silverwood DaHes Ltd., who branded as 'exorbitant" the proposed in- crease of J4.660 a year from Council last summer instruct- ed commissioners to draft the bylaw, establishing licence fees high enough to cover adminis- trative costs. The bylaw, effec- tive Jan. 1, means increased rates for most businessmen. The increase Is to cover costs of city board of health exam- ination and resting of dairy products. The dairies said it's "a policing health measure" which duplicales their own test- ing. The city testing program Is conducted under provincial reg- ulations. Mayor Rod Sykes told dairies that the increases are necessary because the city has not kept pace with Inspection costs. "The dairy Industry has had a vary fair break in past years. The taxpayer has been subsi- dizing (the dairies) fairly heav- ily." Aldermen agreed to give Iho dairies an opportunity to re- view the fee calculations with commissioners. Govt. takes over college financing VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia's New Democratic government will assume 100 per cent of the captial financing ol community colleges in the next "iscal year, Education Minis- :er Eileen Dailly announced here. Mrs. Dailly also announced hat an advisory committee on he integration of all post-sec- ondary education will be nam- ed by the government in a few weeks. The integration of the prov- nce's higher learning facilities was the major recommendation nf the once-controversial Perry teport, commissioned by t h e omer Social Credit govern- ment but never released. The minister said the report now is out of date because o( the growth of the post-second- ary field but the integration ot these services is something the government agrees with. Taking over all capital financ- ing for colleges means local school district taxpayers will nol have to face referendum votes for these costs, she said. The government anticipates an expenditure of about 410 million in the first fiscal year of the new formula, which will be introduced in legislative form at the 1973 winter session of Ihe B.C. House. Mrs. Dailly said also that ultimate aim Is for the prov- ince to take on all operating costs of colleges but she set no deadline for this change. Advanced life indicated in ancient town findings versily of Alberta professor who helped discover pottery and tools in the remains of an ancient Italian village says Ihe hidings indicate the existence of a relatively advanced .socicl.v n I hat country about BC. Dr. S. P. Vinson of the class- es department worked with leorge Bass, and, American archaeologist from University of Pennsylvania, the last two summers where they found pot- tery with "manufacturer's marks" on the bolloin. The pottery was only Ihc sec- ond set to be found in llaly bearing a manufnclurcr's mark. The first was discovered )y an Italian scholar and had more complex markings. Or, Vinsons said in an inter- view Ihe marks "signify cither large counlry-widc pollcry manufacluro for export pur- xisos or the existence of Iwo wtters in Iho village, one of vhom wished l( keep his work llslincl from Ihc olhcr.
