Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 15, 1971 LIFE'S SLENDER THREAD Prank Van 32, a window washer, clung from his broken lafety harness and tcreamed for help before he was pulled through a floor window of a Seattle, Wash., hotel. The rescuer at left was Lynn P. Himmelman, the hotel chain's board chairman and chief executive officer. The board was meeting in a third floor room. Van Geystel suffered an arm injury in the ordeal. Nixon to talk arms, peace ivhen he visits Moscow From IJEUTER-AP WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon will seek an agree- ment limiting the use of nuclear weapons and the outlines of a Mid.J'e East peace settlement when he visits Moscow next May, U.S. officials said today. Nixon will be the first U.S. president to go to Russia, and he follows in the footsteps of Prime Minister Trudeau, who was the first Canadian prime minister to visit the Soviet Union when he made the trip !ast May. Nixon announced Tuesday he will visit Moscow for talks with Soviet leaders which, he said, could significantly improve re- lations between the tiro coun- tries. The U.S. officials said his Chairman Leonid Brezhnev and other Soviet officials will scan the entire international horizon, but they feel the Middle East and nuclear weapons are the most likely avenues of agree- ment. Nixon made clear he mil not be going to follow his China he did not ex- pect significant progress in one or more areas of Soviet-Ameri- can differences. SHARE VIEW He said Soviet leaders shared his view that a summit is only worthwhile if both sides are pre- pared to discuss matters of sub- stance on which major progress could be made. Soviet leaders are believed to have been anxious for Nixon to go to Moscow following his deci- sion to visit Peking some time before May. One of Nixons main tasks in Moscow will be to convince a doubting Russian leadership that the U.S. is not intent upon exploiting differences between Moscow and Peking. The U.S. is seeking an interim Middle East settlement that BERTI HIGA SCHOOLS of MUSIC PRESENTS A GIFT of MUSIC FEATURING HAL RANDALL AT THE BALDWIN ORGAN Monday, October 18th 6 to p.m. CJOC TV CHANNEL 7 BERT!

On the question of limiting nu- clear weapons, observers be- lieve Nixon and the Russians may reach some agreement in limiting the number of anti-bal- listic missiles each country should have. But Nixon indicated that he expects Vietnam to be a dead issue by the time he reaches Moscow. Observers noted that with the U.S. presidential election taking place in November of next year far as political con- siderations are not afford to return from Mos- cow empty-handed. The Nixon summit will be the fifth such conference since President Eisenhower met with Russian officials at Geneva in 1955. Eisenhower attended the next conference as well, in Washington in 1939. That was followed three years later when President Kennedy and Soviet leader Nifcita Khrushchev met in Vienna and a 1967 summit at Glassboro, N.J., between Presi- dent Johnson and Premier Alexei Kosygin.

The next few months could be crucial in showing whether such thoughts are justified following the latest contacts here between the British and Rhodesian gov- ernments, or whether they will be dashed like previous moves. British officials in London are cautious. Some senior ministers said the chances of a political practical settlement now could be considered 50-50. But in Salisbury, the fresh at- tempts to end the simmering dispute about Rhodesia's unilat- eral declaration of independ- ence Nov. 11, 1965, looked the most hopeful yet. Some sources said an early meeting between British For- eign Secretary Sir Alec Doug- las-Home and Rhodesian Pre- mier Ian Smith, followed by the signing of Anglo-Rhodesian peace, now looks possible. The latest act in the slow- moving attempts to get a settle- ment came ia September with a visit to Salisbury by Lord Good- fourth mission as a British emissary to Rhodesia. He spent a week in secret dis- cussions, understood to have in> volved some tough bargaining. Reliable sources in Salsibury say he helped lay the ground- work for a top-level meeting, probably in November or De- cember, between Sir Alec and Smith. As Lord Goodman left, there was widespread speculation in the Rhodesian capital that he had taken a settlement formula with him. If Lord Goodman has taken a formula back to London, it seems to suggest that either or both sides had significantly moved from the positions that have stood in the way of a set- tlement in the past. It could also mean they had reached a meeting point on the most difficult of all how to set the pace of African political development to some time in the future when Afri- cans might run Rhodesia, end- ing white minority rule. Fingerprinting all males in hunt for fire killer BRADFORD, England (Reu- ter) Police in the northern England industrial city of Brad- ford continued their task of fin- gerprinting males over 14 today In an effort to find the killer of three immigrant children who died in a fire Thursday- The fingerprinting of all males over 14 within three- quarters of a mile of the house is part of a massive police mur- der investigation into what a detective called "a diabolical and of crime."

Morning newspaper planned TORONTO (CP) A group of Telegram employees announced plans Thursday to publish a new tabloid newspaper in Toronto early next month. Douglas Creighton, Telegram managing editor, told a news conference that about 60 Tele- gram employees will begin pub- lishing The Sun as soon as pos- sible after the closure of The Telegram, due Oct. 30. Mr. Creighton said The Sun would be a morning tabloid, running 32 to 48 pages and con- centrating on sports, pictures, entertainment, fashions and To- ronto-oriented news. He said The initially will publish five days1 a week, Mon- day through Friday, with one edition daily- Peter Worthington, Telegram reporter and former Moscow correspondent, will serve as The Sun's executive editor. Don Hunt, at present director of the Toronto Telegram syndicate, will be the general manager. Mr. Creighton said the group has obtained financing from some "concerned citizens" in Toronto who believe the city needs a third newspaper. century to turn out "white Indi- ans." "The existing system of edu- cation has very little, if any, foundation in Indian tradition, family or the re- port said. It runs counter to the informal educational process in Indian homes, and eventually this white cultural bias cripples the personalities of Indian chil- dren to the extent it "becomes virtually impossible" for them to function in white schools. The report said pre-school In- dian children, like all other chil- dren, become familiar with their parents' traditional values, speech patterns, habits and the like, out of which develop their behavior and expectations. White children had little diffi- culty adjusting to which are based on the same attitudes they learned at home what of the 'different' student who has experienced a different kind of pre-school, in- formal The Devrome report said this "potentially destructive situa- tion" in school is made worse when the child faces a teacher who speaks a strange language. FINDS LITTLE CHANGE Mr. Devrome's report said there has been little change in the basic nationale behind Cana- dian Indian education since the advent of reserve schools in the 1870s. The purpose has been to tear Indians away from their cultural traditions and turn them into pseudo-whites. Mr. Devrome said in an inter- view, there is nothing inferior about North American Indian cultures, if whites would only recognize it. Indian cultures, before whites set foot on North America, had produced domestic corn, irriga- tion, cattle raising and even multt storey apartment like dwellings. The Devrome report said that among reasons the educational system has failed are these: 97 per cent of Indian children fail to reach Grade 12, and only about 50 per cent go beyond Grade 6. 40 per cent of Indian children entering schools are unable to speak or understand English or French, few teachers speak or understand native lan- guages and have little, if any, knowledge of Indian cultures. housing condi- tions on reserves are not condu- cive to study. the Indian families on reserves earn less than a year; and 75 per cent earn less than a year. literature brands Indians as inferior and they re- ceive prejudicial treatment as a result. The report said the ability and knowledge is available to guide "less developed groups" towards a successful social ad- justment. Yet, after more than a century, white governments had yet to realize their systems and edu- failed and would continue to fail until Canadian society realized that "a set of values pertaining to one culture cannot be applied to another without inevitable modifica- jons."

Police say Mr. Gagnon was getting into his car at his house early Thursday morning, when he was wounded by an assail- ant. Police said later they had ar- rested Guy Rejean de L'Etoile, I, of nearby Lafleche, who had worked for the Verdun fire de- partment but was dismissed two years ago. He was to be arraigned in court later today on a charge of attempted murder. Police chief Roger Dulude said Mr. Gagnon was shot twice in the abdomen and once in the shoulder. The daylight shooting came exactly a week after three Du Pont of Canada, Ltd-, execu- tives were fatally shot in their downtown Dorchester Boulevard offices in Montreal by a man who sought re-employment in the company. Vincent Meloche, 27, has been charged with three counts of murder in the Du Pont shoot- ings. work has brought new and deeper insight into the structure and development of the eco- nomic and social system since the middle of last century and has given fruitful incitements to continued research." Kuznets, who retired from tho Harvard faculty July 1, re- ceived his scientific training as an economist in the United States, acquiring a doctor's de- gree at New York's Columbia University in 1926. He has carried out the greater part of his research work as a member of the staff of the na- tional bureau of economic re- search between 1927 and 1960. The economics award was ttx second of the 1972 Nobel prize! to be announced. The medicine prize was awarded Thursday to Professor Earl W. Sutherland of Nash- ville, Tenn. He said his work primarily had been in the field of interna- tional economics, the study of industry, populations, labor, in- come and other economic of countries all over the world. Agrologists rap, praise T-T report EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Institute of Agrologists today voiced both praise and criticism of the Tradition and Transition report on the prov- ince's agricultural extension services. The professional agricultur- ists, in a brief to Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer, said the report contains many imagina- tive ideas that will stimulate agricultural extension services. The brief criticized what it said was the fact that agricul- ture is treated almost exclu- sively in the production eon- text. A prepared statement said the institute believes agriculture must be viewed as a total in- dustry and separated into var- ious phases production, pro- cessing and markting when considering extension.
