Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMdiy, October THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 29 EVEN A WISE collector can be fooled as the photo on the left proves after radiographer Charles Bridgeman x-rayed what appeared to be an ancient and very valuable statue purchased in the Orient and claimed to-be solid ivory (far Bridgeman x-rayed the figure to reveal the "solid ivory" was actually a thin shell weighted with small rocks to convince art experts of its authenticity. Bridgeman said that even the most experienced collectors can be misled but thanks to radiography, such deceptions can be minimized. Heath expected to quit before next election LONDON (Reuter) Edward Heath will quit, as leader of Britain's opposition Conservative party before another general election is held, aides here Sunday as they assessed Heath's future after losing three out of four elections. The 58-year-old politician spent the weekend quietly with friends and attending the Career DRIVER SALESMAN FRONT END SALESMAN SERVICO CENTRE 33161st Avt.S. Company Benefit Program On the Job Training Apply, in Person belated birthday party of his father, William Heath, who was 86 last day Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson nudged to electoral victory with an over-all House of Commons majority of three. Aides reported that Heath's initial reaction after his latest defeat was to stay on as chief of the Conservative party which he has headed since 1965 But since then pressure has built up for a change, despite many protestations of loyalty from colleagues. He is most likely to tell Con- servative members of Parlia- ment soon after the House of Commons convenes Oct. 29 that he is ready to go whenever the party thinks suitable, informed sources said. 6 The Conservative party procedure for electing leaders is to hold a secret ballot of its members of Parliament. The main case for a delay is -to allow time for a natural successor to is no clear-cut one in to let the party first work out its parliamentary strategy and priorities. But opinion seems to be veering more for a quick deci- sion to avoid lengthy internal bickerings and lobbying over the leadership and to help the new man settle in before emotions become too much aroused. Favorite for the post is the party chairman William x Whitelaw, who made his mark politically as a Ireland administrator. Other possible contender are home affairs spokesman Sir Keith Joseph, has disagreed with Heath on economic former party chairman Edward du Cann, 50, who is popular with rank-and file Conservative MPs. 15 million facing starvation New York Times Service DACCA, Bangladesh The people who survived months of floods in Bangladesh are now facing starvation.

CWGARY, ALBERTA T3C Business to pre-occupy Parliament OTTAWA (CP) Business development at home and abroad is at' the top of the gov- ernment's list of priorities for this week after the eight day throne speech debate Wednes- day. The first two re- surrected from the last revitalize the Industrial Development Bank a mainstay of small business, and nearly tri- ple the authorized capital of the Export Development Corp., (EDO which .facilitates export trade. The IDB, founded in 1944 as a Bank of Canada subsidiary, is to be replaced by a new federal business development bank with expanded terms of reference. Apart from making money available when it is not avail- able from conventional sources, the new bank would provide management counselling, training and in- formation services to small businesses and embrace some of the programs now carried out by the IDB and the in- dustry and manpower depart- ments. Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie first revealed plans for such a bank in July, 1973. The proposal re-emerged last April under a new name, but was essentially unchanged "I think that the creation of the bank will prove to be a very significant assistance to the entrepreneurs of Mr. Gillespie has said. This is the group of businessmen "who start, struggle will) and will expand small businesses and their number of employees over the years to come." Authorized capital of the new bank would be million a year, compared with million for the IDB. The new bank, like the IDB, also would be able to issue de- jentures for purchase by the Bank of Canada. The IDB has st; to eliminate loans ex- t-uing in the last iwo months because it has been approaching its million ceiling on such loans. Refinancing under the new bank will relieve the pressure and has prompted Govern- ment House Leader Mitchell Sharp to consider debate on the bill urgent. Similarly, the Export Development Corp., which was founded in 1969 to replace the 25-year-old Export Credits Insurance Corp., is stretched to its financial limits. It was set up to develop ex- ports by providing long-term loans to foreign buyers of Canadian equipment and ser- vices with a ceiling of billion for loans and guarantees. The EDC also has a Si- billion limit for export credits insurance, but a spokesman for Mr. Gillespie has said both ceilings are under pressure because of exporters' successes in recent years. Expansion of EDC financing by 125 per cent and insurance signings by about 40 per cent were records in the last two years. The credits insurance pro- gram involves insuring ex- porters against non-payment when their goods are sold abroad. It guarantees finan- cial institutions against loss from export transactions and insures against investment loss abroad caused by political actions. The new bill would boost the financing ceiling to billion, of which billion is EDC risk capital and million for government risk. The new insurance ceiling would be billion, shared equally between the govern- ment and the corporation. A typical EDC deal, an- nounced last week, was a fi- nancing agreement to lend 72 million to Jamaica to support the sale by MLW Worthington Ltd. of Montreal of six diesel-electric locomotives to the Jamaica Railway Corp. FLUORIDATION OUR LAST WISH It's hardly safe to be alive in 1974 Our water, food and air are such we can't take any more. Our factories belch forth smoke and fumes and dump more waste in streams Than any old-time witch imagined in her wildest dreams. Our food is seasoned with a load of pesticides and such, And now they say our water is to get that fluoridated touch. If we should die please cremate us, don't poison our remains Just let our ashes fertilize those dear polluted plains.
