Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta DOWN THE HATCH - Governor General and Mrs. Michener joined in singing in a pre-Oktoberfest program at the Germania Concordia, Ont. Program was part of a civic dinner for the Micheners. U.S. Newspaper Gives Trudeau Bronx Cheer By THE CANADIAN PRESS While the Peking People Daily expressed its welcome today to establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and Communist China, editorial reaction in major world newspapers ranged from the disapproval of a couple of United States publications to speculation about Ottawa's underlying motives- The People's Daily, mainland China's official Communist party paper, said in a special commentary that the "major development in the relations between Communist China and Canada . . . reflects the common aspirations of the two peoples and conforms to their interests." "Mischief," the Chicago Tribune called the Peking-Ottawa agreement announced Tuesday. And the New York Daily News gave a "Bronx cheer for Trudeau." The Tribune said. "There Js plenty of mischief in Canada's recognition of Red China as the sole legal government of China, but that mischief is compounded by the timing of the deal. "The United Nations is just about to go through the annual routine of dealing with China's representation in that body. . . . Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau has given Peking an enormous gard Wins Hag Top Music Awards NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Merle Haggard has won the top award given by the Country Music Association-Entertainer of rite Year. "This concludes the most wonderful year of my life" Haggard said in accepting the award on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry House. The California balladeer received three other awards during the hour-long ceremonies televised on NBC's Kraft Music Hall. He also was named Male Vocalist of the Year and won awards for his song, Okie from Muskogee, in two categories, album and single. The Song of the Year award went to Sunday Morning Coming Down by Kris Kristoffer-son. Haggard defeated' such contenders as Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Roy Clark and Charley Pride in winning the top entertainer award. Cash won the title last year and Campbell the year before. The awards highlighted the 45th anniversary celebration of the Grand Ole Opry. Blonde songstress Tammy Wynette captured her third straight award as Female Vocalist of the Year. Guitarist Jerry Reed, a regular on Glen Campbell's network television show was named instrumentalist of tlie year over Chet Atkins last year's winner. propaganda boost at a psychol-1 ogical moment, and it could have widespread effects not | only in the UN but in contributing to the deterioration of the Nationalist position in challenging the legitimacy of the Communist holds on the mainland." RAISES BRONX CHEER After praising the Canadian prime minister for his stand in not giving in to Quebec terrorist kidnappers, The Daily News raised "a loud Bronx cheer for Trudeau," calling his establishment of ties with China "petty stuff." "It was certainly not a friendly act toward the U.S-A.," said The News. "Indieed, there I is widespread suspicion that Trudeau pulled this stunt mainly to irritate Washington | and show how independent Canada is. "That is petty stuff." Excerpts from other editorials: New York Times: "... Canada long ago concluded it was absurd to deny recognition to the government that has been in control of China for two decades. . . . This will place Canada at odds with the United | States, which refuses even to back a "two-China" policy. , Washington long ago should have worked for adoption of the j two-China formula, even though both Peking and Taiwan are op- [ posed to it." CITES TRADE ANGLE London Financial Times: "What this means in purely economic terms is that China is once again becoming interested in trading with the West, and that for a handful of countries it could be on the verge of becoming a really important trading | partner" Bonn Sucddeutsche Zeitung: "It (establishment, of diplomatic relations) can have nothing to do with China's ideological affinities to the Trudeau government. But Ottawa's desire for greater independence from Washington, whose economic predominance weighs heavy on the Canadian consciousness, was sufficient reason for establishing relations." Hong Kong Standard. "No matter what opinion the nations of the world may have of the present masters of China, it is obvious to all that the Communist regime is the effective government of 750 million Chinese. Canada's decision raised once again the question of America's long-delayed recognition of the men in Peking. Many American politicians would like to officially recognize China, but the adamant 'one-China' stand by both Peking and Taiwan makes this impossible." Swedish newspapers said Can-1 ada's recognition of China was a result of the country's desire to carve out ils own foreign policy profile independent of the United States. Of Stockholm's mass-circulation evening newspapers, Afton-bladet said Canada's decision served above all "to underline . . . failure of Washington's Asian policy, which consists of keeping China in quarantine." 51 SIMPSONS Saturday .
