Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tu..doy, Novcmbtr 33, 1971 THE UTHBRIDOr HERAtD Jft Picasso stolen LOAN KOK AI-AU'IMLM JOI'IIVM-IM M: T i i Nixon using UN as whipping boy SrE By STEl'llKN SCCl'T UNITED .NATION'S (LT) United S'.ales President Richard appears to bo using the United Nations as a whipping bov as ho attempts to cope with a difficult situation in Washing- ton. That seems the only interpre- tation of a surprising statement issued by U.S. Ambassador George Bush commenting on the speech given in the general Assembly 24 hours previously by Deputy Foreign Minister Chiao Kuan-hua ol China The statement mentioned the "intemperate ol the first Chinese speech here since being admitted to (lie UN' and added: "What is dis- the derision to launch participation in this world body by firing these empty cannons of rhetoric." The statement astonished some observers. The consensus among some China hands brought over from Hong Kong by the U.S.-was that the Chinese speech was a tough restatement of known po- sitions. It was, most believe, intemperate. NOTHING UNEXPECTED An informed Western ob- server told correspondents that there was nothing unexpected in the Chiao speech adding: "Sur- prises were hi .si ore only for those who hoped to be sur- prised." Even Bush :-M immediately nftcr the speech rmly tliat it was a forceful and not surprising re- statement of positions that the U.K. could not support. Then 24 houis later, after talking to officials during a visit to Washington, he issued the formal statement. Nicholas King, the U.S. press officer here, was pressed at the daily American briefing for cor- respondents to give examples of the "intemperate language." He said he would nave to with the ambassador before an- swering. The Chieo statement was completely clear of the usual Chinese propaganda iiisults such ES "running dogs of impe- rialism." Observers said that in some respects it came down harder on the Soviet Union than on the U.S. The, main point Chiao made was that China does not believe that the superpowers should run the world or the UN. He did demand U.S. troop evacuation of Sfculheast Taiwan and South Korea and make some other anti-American statements, but only in the muM matter-of- fact manner. It could hardly be expcclcd that a Communist speaker would not make these point. LET CHANCE GO Then too. the Chinese let go by a marvellous chance to slam the U.S. Tuesday when they joined 105 otter countries in a demajul that President Nixon no! approve legislation tasscd bv Congrcs' which call-' fur 'he importation of Uhodcsian chrome, which h-v a Sflcuritv Council embargo. >'evcr have so nianv countries i voted against the T.R. on a res- olution here and it was r, per- i feet opening for a Chmc.--c dia- tribe.

Informed sources say tlw final agreement seems likely to con- centrate on results rather than methods. The two sides will probably agree on certain standards of water quality, with Canada reaching the standard through its ban on phosphates and the U.S. llrrough improved gcwage- treatment. facilities which re- move phosphates. Having decided on this ap- proach, however, the American side was ordered by the pursc- walching Office of Management ard Budget to produce detailed estimates of the additional cost could reach hundreds of millions of dollars. The result has apparently been a nightmare for the U.S. environmental protection ad- ministration, whose employees are paddled with the Job, and delay in negotiations on the in- ternational level.
