Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta (2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Ailing governor-general 'raring to go' again JULESLEGER sixmonth convalescence, Jules Leger is "raring to go" and will resume his duties as Governor- General Dec. 6. His press secretary, Peter Cowan, said Friday that Mr Leger's first of- ficial function since his June 8 stroke at Sher- brooke. Que., will be the Order of Canada investiture at Government House. While the 61-year-old Governor-General still has some difficulty with his spe'ech and with movements in his left hand, Mr. Cowan said he has "improved greatly" during the last six months. "At this point, the Gover- nor-General is perfectly able to carry on social ac- tivities and chat with people "But he would oc- casionally drop a word and say jokingly, 'There I go again." It is unlikely that Mr. Leger will make long, for- mal speeches for some time yet, Mr Cowan said. "But it is expected that, in a reasonable period of time, he will be able to resume normal speaking activities." Despite the problems with his speech and hand-he undergoes therapy for both each Leger's health is considered good, Mr. Cowan said. He holds lengthly staff meetings each week, has reorganized the library at Rideau Hall, goes for walks on the 88-acre viceregal estate, attends movies and the theatre, recently visited a local museum and planned to go to a play at the National Arts Centre Friday night. Nevertheless he plans to take a holiday shortly after resuming his official duties. Mr. Leger and his wife, Gabrielle, are to spend roughly three weeks in Florida beginning Dec. first real vaca- tion since assuming of- Cowan said. The timing means that Mr. Leger will have to cancel the Governor- General's New Year's Day levee, an annual reception originally attended by men only but now open to both sexes and held to welcome the New Year. The Governor-General will make up for lost time when he returns. He has been planning his itinerary for the coming year and Mr. Cowan said he has a heavy schedule of parties, receptions, investitures and other functions. He will take up residence in Quebec City in the early spring, a vice-regal tradition. As well, Mr. Leger plans to continue his cross- country travels, visiting New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island some time during 1975. They are the only provinces he has not been to since becoming Governor-General last January. Since his stroke, Mr. Leger's duties have been carried out by Bora Laskin, chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada. Now, however, Mr. Cowan said Mr. Leger is "anxious to get back to work." Whelan silent on egg controls Turner not sure how motion affects Alberta OTTAWA 'CP) Finance Minister John Turner said he doesn't know what he impact will be of a motion m marketing boards that was abled with his new budget. He said outside the Com- that the motion is technically in effect but he nasn't assessed in detail what it will mean to resource-rich provinces such as Alberta and Saskatchewan. "I would have to check. This is the sort of fine detail I try to avoid going into off the cuff, ''it will depend somewhat on the way it (the motion) is translated into legislation The motion, interpreted as another move to reinforce fed- Canal used SUEZ CITY (AP) Four empty Egyptian passenger ihips sailed into the Gulf of Suez Wednesday, the first non- ships to traverse the Suez canal since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. They made the 58-mile jour- ney from Ismailia. midpoint city where they had anchored since Saturday, to Suez in about six hours, sources close to the Suez Canal Authority said. The ships were to begin loading Moslem pilgrims Thursday for the trip to Jed- da, Saudi Arabia. eral claims to resource taxa- tion rights, prevents provin- cial marketing boards from buying oil, natural gas or minerals from companies at a price below market value and reselling at a profit. It is designed to prevent the provinces from sidestepping federal tax policies and reduc- ing the amount of revenue Ot- tawa would otherwise get. MUST PAY ALL In effect, it says that resource companies must pay taxes on the full market value of their products, regardless of any price paid by marketing boards. Saskatchewan has a marketing board that buys oil from companies in the province and resells it at profit. There are natural gas marketing boards in Alberta and British Columbia. Mr Turner declined com- ment when asked whether a large amount of money is involved in the motion. "It's something I will have to check." Ways and means motions precede all tax legislation and take effect when they are in- troduced, the motion on mar- keting boards was one of sev- eral tabled by Mr Turner when he brought down his new budget Monday and is retroac- tive to May 6. It was included originally in the budget that was defeated in the commons, forcing the July 8 election. AUCTION SALE 1 block south of Post Office in the Town of CLARESHOLM SATURDAY, NOV. 30-10A.M.

Deserters' relatives contacted WASHINGTON (Reuter) Defence Secretary James Schlesinger said Friday he will write to relatives of Viet- nam war deserters in a bid to improve "the disappointing response" to President Ford's offer of conditional amnesty. Pentagon figures show that only of the estimated 500 United States military deserters have taken advan- tage of the mid-September offer although have in- quired. A letter will be sent to the next-of-kin as "an additional effort to insure that all Viet- namera military absentees are informed of their eligibili- ty and the details of the Schlesinger said in an announcement. OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan declined comment Friday on the possibility that the government might impose controls on imported American eggs next week. Jack Murta said in the Commons that On- tario egg prices will rise Mon- day and that the only way this was possible was for Canada to restrict cheaper U.S. eggs. Mr. Whelan said that eggs were on the agenda for a meeting Monday with his provincial counterparts. He "said outside the House later that eggs are expected to be the main topic at the Monday meeting, with beef running a close second. But, as far as U.S. restric- tions were concerned, "I can't say one way or the other." Any federal move would de- pend on the suggestions by provincial ministers. Mr. Whelan complained that he had asked MPs from all parties for -suggestions on what to do about egg marketing and prices, but that he had received none, even from his own party. He said he keeps "needling" Lome Nystrom (NDP) one of his main critics, whom he had asked unsuccessfully for suggestions. "I keep asking him where his suggestions are, but. WHO SHED THE SHED?

(CP) The top officer in Canada's Air De- fence Command says a contin- ued reduction in the level of operations will hamper the efficiency of his force Maj.-Gen. W. M. Garton said at a news conference at CFB Sydney Friday that Air Defence Command can main- tain operations at a reduced level for a short period but not for a year or longer because effectiveness of air crews would suffer. "You have to do so much flying to keep an air crew competent." he said. He said his command has reduced flights as part of a general economy drive in the armed forces. Increases in the cost of airplane fuel and the general inflationary trend had required a belt tightening de- spite an increase in the com- mand's budget for this fiscal He expressed concern ADC might not be able to maintain operations after the start of the new fiscal year in April. 1975. if financial restraints are continued Air Defence Command is re- sponsible for the surveillance nf Canada's air space About fi.100 military personnel at five air bases and 25 stations and radar hasps across Canada make up ihe com- mand Maj Garten whose headquarters is at North Bay On1 spoke during a visit to the IV-man radar station at Svdnf. -AhKh he said rosts 5 million a >ear to operate and pumps million of that into the lor a) Topoim A mood m unrerta'nt} about (bp
