Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD TutMtay, October IS, 1974 Air fare bargaining lever for PWA purchase9 BANFF, Alta. (CP) The Alberta government purchas- ed Pacific Western Airlines partially to give it a better position in negotiations on air fares and user charges, a speech written by an Alberta cabinet minister indicated. The speech, written by In- dustry Minister Fred Pearock but delivered to the annual meeting of the Alberta Avia- tion Council by Tom Watt, air transport director for the province, said Alberta will de- mend a role in the setting of air fares later this month dur- ing a federal-provincial meeting on air fares in Saskatoon. The meeting between federal transport minister Jean Marchand and his four western provincial counter- parts Oct. 21 will feature a new request for provincial participation in fare setting by Alberta, said the speech. Alberta will renew a de- mand for a provincial voice in bilateral negotiations for international air routes and in the granting of local air routes. "The federal government's disregard of provincial par- ticipation in bilateral air negotiations with the United States, along with the un- ilateral awarding of 14 of 17 routes to Air Canada, clearly indicated we must protect Alberta and Albertans from the ever-expanding route increasing tentacles of the giant squid sometimes called our "national said Mr. Peacock 'VWTl 1 11 Kissinger sees world Wnelan all lor drinking wine WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?

PLEASE VOTE TOMORROW! i I l I poised on By JAMES RESIGN New York Times Service WASHINGTON U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger believes the nations of the world are now "delicately poised" on the verge of a new historic era, and that the next decade will either be "one of the great periods of human creativeity or the beginning of extraor- dinary disarray." In a long philosophic interview Kissinger called for a "visible and dramatic down turn in the arms race" and a new spirit of interdependence in order to avoid uncontrollable political, economic and social chaos. "If we do not get a recognition of our he said, "the Western civilization that we know is almost certain to disintegrate, because it will first lead to a series of rivalries in which each region will try to maximize its own special ad- vantages. "That inevitably will lead to tests of strength of one sort or another. These will magnify domestic crises in many countries and they will then move more and more to authoritarian models. I would expect then we will certainly have crises which no leadership is able to deal with, and probably military confrontations The secretary of state has been criticized recently for his "domination" of U.S. foreign policy, his role in the attempt to overthrow the government of Salvador Allende of Chile, and his handling of the Cyprus crisis. He spoke of these things, and also of his 'hopes and fears for the future, under what conditions he would leave his job. And what he thinks the world may look like at the end of the cen- tury. This gave the interview the 'new era9 character of a summing up or even of a farewell but he emphasized that it was no "swan song." Kissinger appealed to the Soviet Union and China, not only to bring the arms race under control, but to co operate in developing a World Food Bank. "I do not believe that over an indefinite he remarked, "we can solve the problem of world food reserves if the Soviet Union and Communist China do not accept obligations of their own, or if they simply rely on the rest of the world's production to solve their problems on an annual basis. "Countries that will not he added in what seemed a message to Moscow and Peking, "should not then ask necessarily equal rights to participate in purchases of reserve stocks Kissinger also discussed his regrets of the last five and a half years since he came to the White House. "What I he said, "is that so much of the time had to be spent on the Vietnam War. If we could have got that behind us more rapidly, we could have brought the more positive side of our foreign policy to the fore at a time when attitudes were less rigidly formed. "The real tragedy was Watergate, because I believe that at the beginning of President Nixon's second term, we had before us due to changing conditions a period of potential creativity. Instead, we had to spend almost all of our energy in preserving what existed, rather than building on the foundations that had been laid. Even year of Europe could have gone differently in a different en- vironment. But you never know what op- portunities may have been lost. AMHERSTBURG, Ont. (CP) Federal Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Saturday he supports in- creased consumption of wine, but not at the expense of milk consumption. Mr. Whelan said in a tele- phone interview from his Es- sex County farm home here that wine is a good source of iron that can be helpful to the many Canadians who suffer from iron deficiency. He noted that consumption of wine and beer has steadily increased in Canada and sug- gested that beer might be made more nutritious by add- ing vitamins. "Scientists are doing some experiments now on fortifying beer with vitamins, but they say the taste of vitaminized beer is a little different and they are. worried about the Mr. Whelan said. Canada's grape growers are producing bumper crops and the wine industry would be helped if Canadians became more aware of the benefits of wine, the minister said. "Now, I'm not suggesting that people should switch from milk to he said. "That would get me into trou- ble with'both the milk producers and the grape growers. "But when wine is used properly with discretion, the effects are he said. Mr. Whelan said he ap- proves of a suggestion by fed- eral Health Minister Marc La- londe that consumers should make more use of powdered' milk. Mr. Whelan said the federal government has increased the subsidy paid to producers of powdered milk for table use by four cents a pound. That subsidy would continue for at least a year and would assure that the price of pow- dered milk remains stable. But the'federal subsidy on fluid milk has to be phased out because of skyrocketing production costs, he said. The retail price of fluid milk' will, therefore, rise again next February, when the remain- ing federal subsidy is withdrawn. Mr. Whelan said he told re- porters in Woodstock Friday that wine and beer are cheaper to produce than milk, but he did not suggest that those beverages should re- place milk.
