Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta CLOUDY FORECAST HIGH WEDNESDAY 44 vouTx i" Yo office takes back seal By PETER KIER.VAM NEW YORK (CP) The presidency of the United States has always been a many-tentaded apparatus drawing much of its strength from the Infonration it absorbed from the bureaucratic sea which surrounds it. Under President Nixon i! is evolving into a bi- pedal entity al least in the field of foreign with, ils critics say. one foot resting on the shoulders of presidential adviser Henry Kissinger and the other on the body of conservative doctrine which underlies the Republican parly. One of the truncated tentacles of tha presidency used to reach into the state department, where-in the pulse cf world politics was taken on a regular basis and the diagnosis presented to the president along with his morning coffee. The president still has the information at his dis- posal, but the state department is getting the distinct impression it plays a much-reduced role in the decision- making process. Announcement last month of Nixon's planned visit to the Soviet Union is an example of this estrangement. Heard from FBI Most state department officials first beard of the trip through a memo circulated by tire FBI a few days before the announcement. The memo said the FBI learned from an infor- mant that Gils Hall, general secretary of the Ameri- can Communist, party, had been informed of the trip several days earlier by a Soviet diplomat. Commented one slate, department official: "He's obviously mere clued in thai I am." Only Slate Secretary William Rogers apparently knew about the trip, together with, perhaps, a few of his key aides. In another developinent, the general director of the foreign service, William Hall, messaged the 300 clu'efs of missions overseas that leaks regarding dis- sent "give us problems'' with Congress and the public and must therefore be marked "Limdis." Limdis U the state department classification for limited distribution of a message from a mission to the lop 20 cr official-: eurronnrting the state secre The message from Hall was kept secret from staff members, but its existence was confirmed for the New York Times by a senior foreign service officer. Sees intimidation, Another foreign service official suggested the effect of the intentional or bo to intimidate the young officers, who theoretically have the right of dissent from the government's stand, froir voicing such dissent. Washington sources said tiie order was probably prompted by recent reports of morale of at least one embassy. Another slate department official said al least part of the aim was to keep adverse criticism from the news media, where it could be picked up by po- litical opposition. Opposed to the apparently waning influence of the suite department is the influence of Kissinger, who, together with Rogers, was virtually the only govern- ment official to know about the Peking and Moscow visits until they were announced to the public. The strong conservative footing of the Nixon ad- ministration as reflected in foreign policy was shown recently when the Chinese representatives of the Uni- ted Nations made their debut with a speech that was described by IFN Ambassador George Bush at the time as nothing earth-shattering: merely a fairly mild re- statement of long-known Chinese positions. However, following a subsequent While House conference, Bush emerged with a caustic denuncia- tion of the Chinese speech, reflecting, most observers the over-all White House aim of kicking the to pacify the right wing Republicans to whom Nixon largely owes his tenure in the White House. It is in this sort of foreign-policy conduct by the Nixon administration that many foreign observers find a slightly schizophrenic approach. Some observers at- tributed il to the wall which is rising to separate (he presidency from world opinion and the body of his own government structure designed to allow him to keep in touch with that opinion.

CRISIS BREWlNG-lndian and Pakistani ambassadors speak in the UN General Assembly Monday, amid a grow- ing crisis between' the two countries concerning Pakistani claims that India launched a major offensive into East Pakistan. The Pakistani delegation, headed by Ambassa- dor Agha Shahi, top photo, said it may osk for a special session of the Security Council.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS India said three Pakistani jet fighter planes were shot down in a dogfight near Calcutta Monday as both the Indians and Pakistanis reported heavy fight- ing along East Pakistan's bor- ders. A cabinet minister fold a cheering Indian Parliament in New Delhi today that the U.S.- built F-86 Sabre jets were shot down by four Indian-built Brit- ish Gnat jets 30 miles northeast of Calcutta. A fourth Pakistani fighter escaped, said V. C. Ehukla, minister of defence pro- duction. Shukla said the Indian flyers intercepted the Pakistanis three miles inside India. He reported that the Pakistani pilots bailed out of their shot-up planes and two of the three were captured. The minister said all four In- dian planes returned safely to their base. DECI.AHES EMERGENCY Radio Pakistan reported that President Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan ordered a state of emergency throughout Pakistan because of a "threat of foreign aggression." The reason for his proclamation WES not clear since Pakistan has been under martial law since March, 1969. Pakistani broadcasts charged that India had launched an all- out offensive into East Pakistan at four scattered points. The Indians said East Paki- stan's Bengali rebels made large strikes across the border denied that Indian troops were involved. The Pakistanis charged that the Indians had swept into East Pakistan without a formal dec- laration o[ war.

The decision announced today ruled out, at least temporarily, further rotating walkouts .such as recent ones in Ontario and the Maritimes after the depart- men! refused to extend through- out the service an adjudicator's decision in support of three union members who complained of lost overtime because casual workers had been used on mi- manned delivery walks. In a telegram to Postmaster- General Jean-Pierre Cote, the union loaders set one condition for continuing talks. If an adju- dication decision, now being ap- pealed by the government, is upheld, the government must agree to apply it to all union members. There was no immediate re- sponse by the post office or treasury board, the government, branch which handles contract matters with public servants. PLEDGE SUPPORT District representatives of the Letter Carriers Union of Canada in a meeting today with the na- tional executive pledged support of the membership to "what- ever action the executive necessary to resolve the current dispute." The executive, however, asked the membership to re- frain from any action until it is called nationally. The letter carriers union says categorically that it does not ob- ject in any way to the normal hiring of additional labor to help at the post office during the Christmas rush. 'DELIBERATE POLICY' "What we are fighting is the deliberate policy of the post of- fice department and the treas- ury board of ignoring their re- sponsibilities by not respecting or implementing adjudication decisions which go against the union says. It still wants its members to get first chance at the overtime from covering mail routes left unmanned because of vacation or illness of regular letter car- riers. Creston school teacher returns part of salary CRESTON, B.C. Prime Min- ister Trudeau confirmed in the Commons Monday that his gov- ernment has sprung another leak. He told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield an investiga- tion is going on to determine how a cabinet paper on aid for Indian education and cultural centres got into the hands of Harold Cardinal, president of the Alberta Indian Association. Mr. Cardinal produced the do- cument Sunday on the CBC-TV program Weekend to back up lu's charges thai Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien is hold- ing back money for a proposed Alberta Indian cultural centre. According to the confidential paper, dated July 29, the Al- berta project was to be the first Indian cultural centre financed by the federal government. Mr. Cardinal raised the suggestion that the money was held back because of a current boycott of federal schools by children from Alberta reserves. Mr. Chretien, who was not in the Commons Monday when the was raised, said in an in- terview that he will answer all Hijack suspect remanded to hospital CALGARY (CP) Paul Jo- seph Cini, 27, charged after the hijacking of an Air Canada jet, today was remanded to a men- tal hospital for 30 days ob- servation. He is to he transferred to the Alberta Hospital at Ponoka. Cini faces seven charges, four of them with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment, he was arrested after being taken unconscious from a DC-8 on Nov. 12. questions today in the House. But he denied the charges that Ottawa was holding back any money from the Alberta group. It took time after a cabi- net decision was made to put it into force1, he said. The cabinet paper on Indians was the such secret docu- ment to become public without the government's blessing. A report by Revenue Minister Herb a draft of foreign ownership was the first; the second was a cabinet min- ute which said cabinet agreed in principle on a screening process to keep foreign ownership under control. Reserves programs cut out OTTAWA (CP) The Indian Association of Alberta will gradually eliminate its pro- grams on the reserves but will remain a political organization "with or without government funds." Harold Cardinal, presi- dent of Ure association, said to- day. He said in an interview that his organization will remain "strictly a political associa- tion." "We're not going to disband, but as we have not been allow- ed to fulfil our responsibility and have never been allowed to deliver the services the way people wanted them, our deci- sion is final." Mr. Cardinal said earlier his group has decided to refuse all federal money for Indian pro- grams because it could no longer remain i n d ependent while accepting Ottawa financ- ing. He. produced what he de- scribed as an official cabinet document ar.d said the federal government is holding up funds for Indian programs already approved in principle in an at- tempi to end a current boycott of schools by Alberta Indians.
