Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 'a THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuwdny, Odobor 20, 1970 Peking Prepares Its Propaganda HONG KONG (AP) A Hong Kong newspaper says the Com- munist Chinese embassy in Can- ada to be established later will have as its primary task the conducting of political propa- ganda. The independent Chinese-lan- guage Ming Pao says: "The recent agreement for mutual recognition between Canada and Communist China was a big victory for Peking in the field of foreign affairs but has also great commercial im- portance for both. "The embassy will use its legal status to implement Pe- king's long-time .doctrine of United front work in the white areas, which means the influ- ence of people and turning them into sympathizers of Peking in the non-Communist areas. "The embassy will be Pe- king's political propaganda centre on the American conti- nent and will be responsible for activities to expend Peking's in- fluence in North. Central and South America, thus replacing the embassy in Cuba as such a centre." The newspaper adds: "Peking is fully aware that there are already a number of its sympathizers among the Ca- nadian government officials and intellectuals and is fascinated with the possibility of dividing the Canadian riding men as part of its 'nerve war' on the American continent" South To Counter North Buildup SAIGON (AP) The Smith I deep into Cambodia and give Vietnamese military command is planning new offensives into Cambodia soon and will have some support from American bombers, informed sources said here. The aim is to counter a North Vietnamese buildup during the dry season, which has just begun, and to keep the North Vietnamese away from the inte- rior of South Vietnam to allow the withdrawal of American troops with minimum casual- ties. A number of U.S. units are positioned in the Saigon region for redeployment by Christmas as part of President Nixon's lat- est cut of troops to be made by Dec. 31. One top-ranking South Viet- namese field commander said he was waiting for the height of the dry season "to launch deeper and larger operations into Cambodia." "Our armor is restricted until the roads are entirely he said. With a limited number of heli- copters, the South Vietnamese must rely on armored personnel carriers to move their forces them mobility. "We've got the dry season coming up and this provides more favorable conditions for Vietnamese activity in Cam- an American source ex- plained. Other sources said U.S. B-52 bombers and smaller tactical fighter-bombers would be used to soften up certain .areas for the South Vietnamese infantry. Hanoi has begun its dry-season push of war materials down the Ho Chi Minh trail through Laos to support new offensives in Cambodia and South Vietna. At last report, the South .Viet- namese had about troops operating inside Cambodia, mostly along North Vietnamese supply routes east of the Me- kong River. The U.S. command has launched an extensive aerial campaign in Laos in efforts to disrupt Hanoi's supply pipeline. For the ninth consecutive day, all of the B-52 strikes allocated for Indochina were concentrated today along the trail network. Up to 30 of the giant bombers, each carrying as much as 30 otns of bombs, took part. Light battlefield action was reported.

It also was announced the Washington government has sent its sympathies to the Cana- dian government and to the family of Quebec Labor Minis- ter Pierre Laporte, murdered by his kidnappers in the Mont- real area Saturday. "The U.S. government itself has had experience with kidnap- pers and with the assassination of said John King, state department press officer. "We deplore all such action."

Government Extends Gold Mining Aid OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons gave routine first reading today to legislation that would extend federal assistance to gold mining to June 30, 1973, from its scheduled expiration at the end of this year. Energy Minister J. J. Greene had an- nounced during the summer that the aid would be extended. Designed to maintain activity and employment at commer- cially-productive mines, federal subsidies have amounted to about million since they were instituted 23 years ago. Subsidies are paid according to a formula related to costs of production. Cancer Victims Seek Damages Over Chemical LONDON (AP) Two cancel- victims asked the High Court today for damages from the giant imperial Chemical Indus- tries firm and Dunlop Rubber Co. because of a substance which they say, is known to cause cancer and was with- drawn from use 21 years ago. The chemical, called Noxoss, was evolved to delay rubber de- terioration and was used in the manufacture of tires and other rubber goods. Counsel for the two Dunlop employees, Christopher Wright and Thomas Cassidy, said the case against ICI is that the firm supplied a "dangerous and can- cer-producing chemical without warning users of the danger." Both men, employed by Dun- lop, since the mid-1940s, have contracted cancer of the blad- der. This test case, upon which other claims depend, is ex- pected to last six weeks. Under English practice, the amount of damages is fixed by the court if the complaint is up- held. Camrose Housing Project Set OTTAWA (CP) Central. Mortgage and Housing Cui-p. announced today that the fed- eral government and the Alber- ta government have entered into an agreement for a public housing project in Camrose. The project will consist of a subsidized rental housing pro- ject of 14 units for low-income families. Nine three bedroom and five four-bedroom semi- detached houses are planned. 1868. He was killed on an Ottawa street while returning home from the House of Commons, where he had given a ringing speech on brotherhood and Con- federation. James Patrick Whelan, known to be a Fenian, was hanged for the slaying. McGee had fought efforts by the Irish extremist group to create disloyalty among Irish immigrants to Canada. On April 7, 1868, he told the Commons that he spoke "not as the representative of any race or of any province... but bound to recognize the aims of my Ca- nadian fellow subjects from the farthest east to the farthest west. A House of Commons page found McGee lying on the door- step of his rooming house, dead of a single gunshot. Before coming to Canada in 1857, McGee worked in London and Dublin as a politician and journalist. He was elected to the legislative assembly of the Union of Upper and Lower Canada and to the House of Commons of the new Confederation.

PREMIER ROBICHAUD On The Spot The New Democrats, promis- ing a minimum wage, have committed themselves to create jobs in two years, adopt an all inclusive medical care scheme and institute a compul- sory government-operated auto- mobile insurance plan. The NDP has said it would give full legal rights, including the rights to vote and drink, to 18-year-olds while Liberals and PCs have promised only to drop the voting age. So far the campaign has been low-key, a sharp contrast to the bitter 1967 struggle beween Mr. Robichaud and former PC leader, J. C. Van Home. The premier, seeking re-elec- tion for the third time since coming to power in 1860, has been campaigning on the slogan "programs for the '70s" but giv- ing major attention as well to accomplishments of his govern- ment. Mr. Hatfield, who succeeded Mr'. Van Home last year, has concentrated on both the PC platform and what he called "the failures" of the Robichaud administration. Savings Account?
