Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta NO DISCRIMINATING CLAUSE There's no telling where Santa might come from see days of women's lib. Rebecca Harrington, a 29-year-old scuba diver who leaves for Palm Beach, Fla., after Christmas, becomes Santa Glaus for children visiting a shopping center in Falls Church, Va. Canada's worst customer Widnwtoy, Nevember IV, H7J TM UTHMIDOC HWAID 21 PAKIS (CP) French busi- nessmen see Canada only as a supplier of raw materials and have been slow to accept It as a producer of manufactured goods, Claude Charland, com- mercial counsellor at the Cana- dian embassy, said today. Speaking to several hundred French and Canadian business- men holding a study day on economic exchanges between the two countries, Mr. Charland said France is Canada's worst customer among the six estab- lished members of the Eu- ropean Economic Community. One reason for this was that French businessmen had cate- gorized Canada as a producer of unfinished goods only. Mr. Charland said this aston- ished him as even the United States, "the most difficult mar- ket in the has con- fidence in the products and technology of Canada. A lack of dynamism on the part of Canadian exporters also might have contributed to the situation, but the problem seemed more pronounced in trade with France than with other countries. However, Canadian exports lo France had increased 5 per cent a year during each of the last four years. Mr. Cnarland said the figures gave him op- timism that the French are gaining more confidence in Ca- nadian products. HAS SAME PROBLEM A French official said France is having a similar problem breaking into certain Canadian markets. Jean Trocme, economic and commercial adviser to the French Embassy in Ottawa, said France has had little suc- cess selling machinery on the Canadian market, despite the fact that Canada is among the largest importers of such prod- ucts in the world.

Clouds hang over church meeting WINNIPEG (CP) The as- sembly of the Canadian Council of Churches began its first full day of meetings Tuesday with a heavy agenda of social ailments for racism and pollution. But darkening the doors of lire committee rooms is a record of limited successes in social-action endeavors since the 11 member churches of the Protestant organization last as- sembled in Montreal In 1969. "Perhaps we just lack commented the council presi- dent, Dr. A. B. B. Moore of To- ronto, when asked why mem- bers of Parliament showed no interest in two council question- naires on national and inter- national issues. The first of these dealt with the Vietnam war, and was sent in the name of tha churches to all members of Parliament in August, Dr. Moore said in an Interview Monday. In October, the MPs were asked to state their posi- tions on election issues. "As far as I know, only a few replies were Dr. Moore said. INTEREST SLIGHT But the public as well showed little interest in council in- itiatives. In its report to the assembly, the council's commission on world concerns said business and labor representatives have No Nixon visit CAMP DAVID, Md. (AP) A report that President Nixon will visit Egypt and Israel next spring has "no subs t a n c n White House spokesman said Tuesday. Nixon's press secretary, Ron- ald L.

Evening: BOB SAPSFORD 328-8641 ALBERT STUCKART 327-4036 not responded to Invitations to discuss the economics of under- developed countries. For one particular sym- posium, "not a single member of the business community it- tended" although 10 were In- vited. The report says the fed- eral government has not re- sponded to repeated requests that at least one per cent of the country's gross national product be devoed to international aid programs. In another report, the com- mission on Canadian affairs stated it had "many diffi- culties" in attempts to coordi- nate the 'diverse activities of denominational funds for social and economic development in Canada." The commission says it did not receive the hoped-for sup- port of minority groups, SUCCESS SMALL The commission reported It had little success "in the struggle to understand the French-English fact in Cana- dian life and enable churchmen to respond creatively to it.1 It says less than 50 per cent of national church leaders have become proficient in the two languages, and that attempts to obtain church statemens of po- sition on the October crisis of 1970 "met with only a weak re- sponse." Dr. Moore told about 200 del gates In his keynote address that the council office in Ot- tawa, set up following the Mon- treal assembly, had to be closed because of lack of support of some member churches. He suggested in his address that an insistence on allegiance along denominational lines might account for some of the council's failures. This 'is no way for the Christian church to respond to the diversity that la In our society today." SOME HOLDING BACK Rev. T. E. Floyd Honey, gen- eral secretary of the coundl, suggested In an interview that some congregation members in positions of leadership in tire member churches might be holding back the ecumenical spirit of reform. "There is conflict at various levels. The churches are a cross-section of the middle class in membership, with some spillover in both directions. Generosity is a lot to expect of human nature." However, Mr. Honey said there Is some "very good lead- ership." "We are trying lo sensitize our people.' Dr. Moore said the council succeeded In many of Its In- itiatives, and was Involved in relief projects in Nigeria during the civil war and in (lie Indo- Pakistan war. As well, the council provided funds and ad- vice to American war resisterj who came to Canada. SNOW STUDY GUELPH, Ont.
