Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, 3u. 19.4 iHt LbiHBRIuUfc HfcRALu 1. Election polls bill introduced OTTAWA (CP) Publica- tion and broadcast of opinion polls should be banned during federal election campaigns, Robert Coates (PC Cumberland Colchester North said Friday. Polls can stampede voters from one party to another, in- fluencing the outcome of an election, he said in the Com- mons. One notable example was the 1970 British election where polls consistently show- ed the Labor party in the lead, he said. But on election day the voters elected a Conser- vative government. He introduced a bill to pre- vent publication of polls in fu- ture Canadian elections, but it was talked out without coming to a vote. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield also is oppos- ed to publication of polls while election campaigns are under way. Mr. Coates said polls taken by the news media are based on questionable surveys and have doubtful factors of 25 per cent or more in many cases. BASE ON FACT Since a swing of five per cent of the voters either way might decide an election, "it is very difficult for me to believe that there is any credibility at all to many of the polls that are produced." If reports are not based on solid facts, he argued, "they shouldn't be in the news- papers." Many news organizations publishing polls have neither the time, staff nor credibility to take polls properly, he said. He mentioned a CBC poll dur- ing the July 8 election cam- paign.

TOKYO (AP) President Ford will visit China next year to give fresh impetus to the development of U.S.-Chinese relations. The presidential visit was announced Friday in an un- usually brief joint communi- que issued after U.S. State- Secretary Henry Kissinger completed a four-day trip to China. The secretary was returning home today after a stopover in Tokyo. The statement gave no spe- cific date or goal for Ford's visit. American officials trav- elling with Kissinger said the trip would take place in late 1975. Apparently, it would aim at balancing out Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev's planned visit to the United States next June. In Washington, the presi- dent issued a statement saying: "I look forward to visiting the People's Republic of China next year and to con- tinuing the process of nor- malizing our relations." Apart from arranging Ford's trip, however, Kissinger was returning home with no evident advance in U.S.-Chinese relations or in settling the question of Taiwan, the major point in dispute between Washington and Peking. It was understood among re- porters accompanying Kissinger that the Chinese had taken the initiative to arrange Ford's visit. The reporters were told at the start of the trip that the secretary had no intent of arranging a presiden- tial visit. The joint communique, issued simultaneously in Pek- ing and Washington, said: "Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, U.S. secretary of state and assistant to the president for national security affairs, visited the People's Republic of China from Nov. 25 through Nov. 29, 1974. "The Chinese and U.S. sides held frank, wide-ranging and mutually beneficial talks. They re-affirmed their un- changed commitment to the principles of the Shanghai communique. "The two governments agreed that President Gerald R. Ford would visit the People's Republic of China in 1975." The Shanghai communique, issued in February, 1972, when then president Richard Nixon concluded his trip ending 25 years of es- trangement, pledged the two countries to work toward nor- mal relations. The Chinese were said to be basically satisfied with the pace of detente. The two sides apparently decided on the terse text after rejecting a longer draft that restated es- tablished principles of U.S.- China relations. The communique made no mention of Taiwan, the refuge of Chiang Kai-shek's U.S.-sup- ported Nationalist Chinese government. U.S. officials said China did not push for a fast resolution of the issue during Kissinger's visit, and both sides were sim- ply waiting for developments on Taiwan. The officials added that there would be some reduc- tion in the U.S. force on the island before Ford travels to China. NDP women s Canada still at loggerheads with EEC at trade meeting VARIGRAY Sunsensor The Comfort Lens They darken when it's sunny and bright then clear automatically indoors and at night. Open till p.m. Monday to Saturday (Thursday till 9 p.m.) OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. 308-7lh ST S LETHBRIDGE Phone 327 3609 GENEVA (Reuter) Canada and the nine-nation European Economic Com- munity (EEC) reported Fri- day they are still at odds over a Canadian complaint that it has been offered inadequate compensation for trade ad- vantages lost in the enlarged Common Market. But the EEC agreed at a meeting of the 60-country council of the General Agree- ment on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) to reply speedily to Canada on a request for an ad- ditional two months' "breathing space" to try to settle the dispute, a GATT spokesman said. Canada told the council ear- lier this month it was dis- satisfied with compensation offered by the EEC for trade concessions on Canadian cereals withdrawn by Britain and Denmark since they join- ed the Common Market in Jan. 1 last year. Consultations between the two sides since then have fail- ed to bring agreement, in- formed sources said. Canada, supported by about 20 other countries including the United States and Japan, asked the council to set up a committee to investigate the complaint. Council Chairman Klaus Sahlgren of Finland proposed Friday to defer establishing the panel until after further talks between Canada and the EEC. He also advocated a two- month extension of a deadline due to expire Jan. 31 next year within which, under GATT regulations, Canada must de- cide whether to retaliate for lost compensation by withdrawing trade concessions previously granted to EEC states. EEC delegate Paul Luyten said the Community would consider this suggestion and reply to the Canadians in good time. The Canadian complaint came more than three months after protracted negotiations with the EEC on compen- sation: Two other major com- pensation claimants, the U.S. and Australia, also did not reach final agreement with the Community on cereals. organizer OTTAWA (CP) Anne Dewitt of Montreal, a political organizer for the last 10 years, has been appointed women's organizer for the federal New Democratic Party, it was an- nounced Friday.
