The Financial Times said today that Cominco's action' "is surprising since .only recently ,it announced a 10-per-cent cutback in to be an alternative to price reduc- tions." "Indeed, the company has been a vociferous opponent of price cuts in the U.S. market and followed the reductions made by American Smelting and Refining Co. only 'reluc- tantly', saying they were not justified and did nothing to Im- prove' demand." The business newspaper said "the one-cent reduction in the Canadian a lower equivalent level than the U.S. because of the different values in to be -a complete reversal of previous policy. "It is being interpreted as in- dicating the demand position, aggravated by the General Mo- tors strike, is worse than was suspected and will almost cer- tainly mean a general reduction in U.S. prices, PWA President Resigns Post VANCOUVER (CP) R. H. Laidman has resigned as presi- dent of Pacific Western Air- lines Ltd., the company an- nounced here. In a statement, PWA board chairman E. C. Samis said Mr. Laidman was leaving "for per- sonal reasons." Don Watson was appointed president to.replace Mr. Lai" man. Mr. Watson formerly i vice..- president in charge management and technical vices. I Interpreting The ,Neivs Nixon Faced With Conflicting Pressures WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon seems faced with strongly conflicting pressures as he examines the possibility of a new American initiative in the Vietnam peace negotiations, currently paralysed in Paris. The president, who has just completed a flag-showing trip to Europe, has scheduled a meet- ing this week with both Republi- can and Democratic congres- sional leaders to brief them on us travels and particularly on meeting in Ireland with David K. E. Bruce, the chief American negotiator at the Paris talks. Nixon is expected to unveil new U.S. proposals on Vietnam in a broadcast Wednesday. The conflict has to do with realities. On the one hand, it could help ;he peace-making image of both ;he president and the Republi- can party if Nixon were seen to be making an efffort to get the negotiations moving again. Even some minor concession could be made to appear suffi- ciently dramatic to aid the Re- mblican cause in the Nov. 3 U.S. congressional elections. DIFFICULT TASK Weighing against this is the Jifficulty of devising any mean- ingful shift in U.S. policy wlu'ch would not be rejected out of land by the North Vietnamese, lie South con. ceivably, both of them. President Nguyen Van Thieu of South Vietnam has already, iredicted that the Paris talks fail. He and his controver- sial Vice-president, Nguyen Cao Ky, have consistently laid down conditions for an end to the war which are as patently unaccept- able as Thieu and Ky them- selves are in the eyes of the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong. Washington's policy may not be dictated in Saigon, but nei. ther are the South Vietnamese leaders' views ignored here. If Nixon decides Qif. time is appropriate for I'.ssh ap- proach in Paris, the opportunity has already been made for him. The Communist negotiators presented a new variation on their past demands Sept. 17, two days after the announcement of Nixon's visit to Europe and his p 1 a n n ed consultations with Pruce. The U.S. has yet to reply to that proposal. In the nature o the Paris talks a reply is indi cated, but the option remains o simply dismissing the lates Communist proposal as contain ing nothing-new. In the end, the U.S. president might be tempted by a quiet refusal to take tho new Com- munist suggestion seriously. SICK OF WAR One of the most astonishing aspects of current American po. litical life is the manner in which the Nixon administration has succeeded in defusing .Viet- nam as a passionate concern of the American people. Postal Workers Likely To Okay Contract OTTAWA (OP) Canada's postal vfft'kers ate ex- pected to approve contract that came out of ihe year-long postal dispute when ratification Contract Let For Olds Job EDMONTON (CP) A pro- vincial government contract for development of an agricul- tural college site at Olds has been awarded a Calgary firm, Public Works Minister A. W. Ludwig announced here. He said the bM sub- mitted by Gallelli Construction Materials Ltd. was the lowest of four tenders. voting is tabulated next Wednes- day. A spokesman for the Council of Postal Unions, which repre- sents the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Letter Carriers Union of Canada, saic Tuesday ballots and copies ol the proposed contract were sent to locals Monday. The locals can hold a 24-hour vote period at any time between receiving the contract and the reporting deadline, he said. Results will be sent by tele- gram to Ottawa, where counting will take place. The settlement reached by ne- gotiators last month included a pay increase of 55 cents an hour over 2% years. Average hourly rate for the workers before the settlement was For COLDSand GRIPPE i.

The president and the Repub- licans can still capitalize on the pace of U.S. troop withdrawals from South Vietnam to bolster their position in next month's elections. The Paris talks have long seemed too far away and too unproductive to many voters. Any U.S. initiative at this point might only detract fro-n f-e hopeful image about Vietnam created by the president and political colleagues. ADULT EDUCATION EVENING CLASSES IMPROVE YOURSELF!
