Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Nasser Death Leaves Vacuum By CY FOX Canadian Press Staff Writer The question of who will assume power in Egypt, where the masses are still dazed from iho death and funeral of President Nasser, involves the issue of leadership for all the Arab world as well as for the late chief of state's own country. The vacuum his death leaves in the realm of Arab politics recalls periods of similar uncertainty that have afflicted the Moslem world at various times in its history. The centre of power in Islam following the death of the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century shifted between such cities as Cairo, Damascus -in what now is Syria-and Baghdad, now the capital of Iraq. Nasser restored to the capital of Egypt the honor of being the mainspring of inspiration for Arabs throughout the Middle East, struggling as they are with the challenges of life in the 20th century. CONTEST ON Now the contest is on among major Arab countries for the right to undertake that same role in the post-Nasser epoch. But the odds are that, whoever succeeds the late president in Cairo, Egypt will remain the leading Arab state despite the blow of Nasser's passing. Algeria, with its powerful President Boumedienne, is too far removed geographically from the flashpoint of the Arab- RIPLEY OPTICAL DISPENSING OPTICIAN "Where service means serving people" 618 3rd Ave. S. _PHONE 328-7626 Israeli cc.flict to dominate the anti-Zionist countries of the Middle East. Young chieftains of revolutionary Libya and Sudan seem inexperienced for the role of pan-Arab primacy, while the rulers now holding sway in modern Baghdad and Damascus must grapple with internal problems which leave them little time for fulfilling broad international ambitions. With monarchs such as the kings of Jordan and Saudi Arabia too traditionalist for radical Arab elements, the burden of leadership seemingly remains with the Egyptians, who constitute the most populous of the Arab states and the nation most committed materially to the conflict with Israel. CONSIDER CONTENDER Some observers consider acting-president Sadat merely a provisional figure and see a powerful contender for supreme office in Aliv Sabry, a veteran idea man steeped in the affairs of the Nasserite Arab Socialist Union. But although this association wih the one-party state's sole political organization may help his cause, Sabry himself has a record of the sort of heart trouble that killed Nasser. Other contenders include mili-t a r y personalities and Mohammed Heikel, minister for public guidance and a highly-articulate confidant of the late president. The upshot of the leadership stakes may prove to be an attempt at collective exercise of top-level power, always a precarious venture-and especially in a nation so grief-stricken and shaken as Egypt. today's FUNNY (Q 1970 by NEA, Inc. Canada's Gas Decision NoMoreCuts Gets Nod Of Approval WASHINGTON (CP) - The Canadian government's announcement Tuesday that it has authorized a substantial increase in natural gas exports to the United States has received a qualified nod of approval from U.S. authorities concerned over the threatened winter energy shortage. While any help is welcome, it was pointed out that the U.S. had sought an even greater quantity. Also, much of the 6.3 trillion cubic feet to be delivered in the agreement over 15 Kootenay-Elk Railway Backed VANCOUVER (CP) - Mines Minister Frank Richter says the provincial government will support construction of the Kootenay and Elk Railway to transport East Kootenay coal through the United States to the coast. HOUSE FOR SALE 3 bedrooms, bath up and down, new wall to wall carpets, recently decorated, complete with drapes.

This home is completely fenced and landscaped. Call Bill At 327-1296 Days 328-1318 Nights - ASKING PRICE $30,000 Speaking to the 22nd annual Canadian Conference on Coal, Mr. Richter said railways are a "vital content" in competition to maintain "reasonable rates in the transportation of goods to market." "Continued expansion of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway and the Kootenay and Elk Railway proposal are evidences of our concern in this regard," he said. Crows Nest Industries Ltd. of Fernie is seeking' federal approval of the Kootenay and Elk to connect with the Burlington Northern. It would provide an alternative route to the CPR for transporting East Kootenay coal to the coast and a route to take steam coal to a potential market in the U.S. Pacific northwest. "K is my belief that the movement of coal to markets will continue to require both adequate and even additional rail routes for some time to come," said Mr. Richter. "I am not convinced, at this time, that pipeline transportation of coal on an economic or even technical basis is practical in British Columbia."

Byrne Deputy Minister TO: THE DIRECTOR, CORRESPONDENCE SCHOOL BRANCH DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, EDMONTON, ALBERTA GRADE IN WHICH I AM INTERESTED NAME ...................... ADDRESS.................... I L to 20 years will not start arriving in time to help in this winter's critical situation. Although some deliveries will start soon, much of the gas cannot start moving until additional pipeline is built. Ironically, the announcement came amid renewed charges here that domestic gas supplies are being withheld from the market to force the U.S. Federal Power Commission to raise wellhead prices. At a press conference Tuesday to announce minimal easing of the U.S. oil import quota system, Chairman John Nassikas of the FPC said the commis-s i o n's investigation of such charges had yielded "no substantial evidence." However, he added that: "We have indicated to the Federal Trade Commission that if they want to investigate we will not deter them." GRANTED LICENCES The Canadian authorization covers export approval to four of five companies that had sought more gas. The five had sought export licences covering a total of 8.9 trillion cubic feet over 15 to 25 years. Although the authorization fell far shm-t of that amount, some observers here felt the decision reflected a more open Ottawa attitude toward U.S. appeals for Canadian natural gas. But reports here suggest that Energy Minister J. J. Greene had made clear that if the U.S. expects much more gas it must let considerably more Canadian crude oil into the U.S. But the Nixon administration announcement Tuesday made only minimal upward revisions -including probably about 40,000 ban-els a day from Canada over the present quota of 395,000 barrels daily. The quota was set by President Nixon last March and expired at the end of December. The whole tone of Tuesday's announcement was that the U.S. government still looks to belt-tightening on the part of the consumer and more effort on the part of industry-not vastly increased foreign imports-to cope with the situation. Tremor Felt MANILA (AP) - A fairly strong earthquake shook Rom-blon Island in the central Philippines Friday, the weather bureau's geophysical division reported. A bureau official said the tremor reached intensity of five on the Rossi-Forel scale of nine. In Canadds Armed Forces FDMONTON (CP) - There is no question of further reduction of Canudian armed forces, Lt.-Gen. G. A. Turcot, leader of the Canadian Mobile Command, said here. Lt.-Gen. Turcot, of Montreal said that with the recent hange of defence ministers many people were "quite worried" about the future of the force. "There is no need to be worried," he told 900 members of the Canadian Airborne Regi-: �nt at their annual inspection. The general presented an award to WO John Marr who recently achieve^ the highest standing ever recorded at the U.S. Army ranger school. Police Group Won't Appeal Reprimand CALGARY (CP) - The Calgary Police Association has decided not to appeal a reprimand given a force member after a university student took a complaint to the police commission. Geoffrey White, 18, told the commission he was punched twice in the face by a patrol-car constable June 30 after he raised a clenched fist and shouted "all power to the people." The commission reprimanded Const. Donald Alexander who said he had pushed the youth but did not punch him. The police association said it decided not to appeal the decision after Mayor Rod Sykes made it clear only one constable, not both members of the detail, had been reprimanded. The association has instructed its members not to appear before any more commission hearings without first consulting the association. Association president Det. William Brink said the commission inquiry turned into a trial and he was concerned the policeman's rights were being neglected. SHOE REPAIRS ? BEST ?
