Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the dome By THE CANADIAN PHESS Procedural streamline Saturday, Octobtr LETHBRIOGE HERALD-3 Jim Henderson, former Social Credit House leader, has succeeded in having a proposal to streamline procedure in the Alberta Legislature accepted un- animously by the Legislature for debate. Mr. Henderson, who now sits as an independent for Wetaskiwin-Leduc, said there had been considerable mis- understanding of the proposal, presented by a legislative committee on rules and procedure, partly because of his changing role in Op- position. Mr. Henderson's private member's motion, specifies that proposals on procedure would be placed before the House again next week. He said his decision to resign from the Social Credit Party and sit as an indepen- dent was part of the reason for the dispute over the report. "At a critical time I left the party and this fouled up communications to some ex- tent The proposed package also includes a suggestion that ministerial announcements be made before the question period, which would allow op- position questioning on the same day. China trade pact applauded Lougheed won't interfere Premier Peter Lougheed has told the Legislature his government is not considering making any changes in ex- isting regulations on Daylight Saving Time. The premier, replying to Art Dixon (SC Calgary said Daylight time was adopted in Alberta by referendum, and he is not in- clined to interfere. Mr. Lougheed said "most citizens voted on the issue on the assumption daylight time would extend through the summer and he con- sidered the government should not initiate any changes. Daylight Saving Time, which started last April, ends at midnight, Oct. 28. Herridge dies H. W.

The Trudeau delegation returned to Ottawa early Friday. "The Canadian suggestion that the committee address it- self immediately to the area of transportation, forestry and agriculture was accepted by the Chinese. "Agreement was reached as well that detailed discussions be initiated quickly in the fields of aluminum and wood pulp. We also agreed that further discussions take place soon with respect to potash, sulphur and nickel." Mr. Trudeau said the group that accompanied him and his wife was heartened by the im- plications the agreement Socreds rap Homer Gunman ignores Canadian's plea to spare life Social Credit MLAs claim Deputy Premier Hugh Horner ignored public reaction to the proposed Disaster Services Act.

John Crawford Maxwell, 52, of Long Beach, Calif., a native of Winnipeg, was executed by Marxist guerrillas as Lebanese soldiers and police stormed the Bank of America office here. They had held him and other hostages for 26 hours. The others, who were res- cued, said the chief of the gun- men leader of the Lebanese Socialist Revolutionary Move- Maxwell as the po- lice attack began: "We're go- ing to kill you now." Then he moved up behind Maxwell and shot him in the back. Maxwell fell but made another plea for the gunmen to space his life. Two of the terrorists kicked him and one yelled: "You Americans, all of you are fil- thy." Then he sprayed Max- well with a burst from an automatic weapon. GUNMEN KILLED Two gunmen were killed and three captured in the battle. George Pohle. sales representative for Douglas Aircraft Co.. the firm for which Maxwell worked, said that Maxwell was ''very matter-of-fact and cool" on the phone shortly before he was shot. Pohle said the U.S. am- bassador to Lebanon. William Buffum, spoke twice to Max- well Friday morning when the gunmen were threatening to kill him if million in ran- som was not paid. The ambassador told the businessman's widow and three children afterward that Maxwell was "a man of great courage." Other hostages said that Maxwell as the only American singled out from the group and subjected to constant threats on his life. KNEW DEATH NEAR Maxwell said on the phone he believed he would be killed if the ransnm was not paid. Pohle said he told him the Bank of America had agreed to pay the ransom, but that negotiations were being handled by Lebanese authorities. The Lebanese reeused to bargain with (he gunmen. After the terrorists turned down a final appeal for sur- render Friday morning, police stormed the third-floor office in Beirut's financial district. Maxwell had arrived in Bei- rut to begin a new job less than four weeks ago. He was in the Bank of America by coincidence, to make a deposit, when the bank was seized by the gunmen Thur- sday. His wife, Gertrude, and three 11, James, 9, and Yvette, accompany his body home to Long Beach on Sunday, Pohle said. Bald man, 85, sprouts new head of hair NORTH BAY, Ont.

He was as bald as a baseball bat after the greyish rem- nants of his once-blonde thicket disappeared, said Mr. Laplante, who "can't see why it would grow back." "His hair fell out on top, right down to the crown of the he said. "The sides, too." "Now it's the same color as when he was a young boy." Mrs. Laplante said the new hair "came in as fuzz first.... It got longer and it was blonde." Dr. George Franko of St. Joseph's General Hospital here was incedulous. ''It's a medical im- he said, but added: "If you find out what makes it grow, let me know.

Trade figures show that China produces few surpluses beyond the needs of its 800 million people. Canada ex- ports mainly wheat to China. Wheat accounted for million of last year's total ex- ports of million. Chinese exports were million in 1972, double that of 1971, and it is felt it may be decades before a balance of trade can be arhipved, The three opposition parties said they welcome accom- plishments of the trip but Social Credit Leader Real Caouette added that he will never condone governments that take office by violence and strip people of freedom. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield con- gratulated the prime minister, calling the visit timely and beneficial. "We have much we can learn from one another." he said of Canada and China. The only disturbing note was the lack of any reference by Mr. Trudeau to nuclear testing by China. Canada should make its opposition known firmly. David Lewis. New Demo- cratic Party leader, singled out the part played by Mrs. Trudeau in the visit. All Cana- dians recognized her contribu- tion. He said Canada was right to recognize China in NDP had been advocating the move since he look- ed forward to the day when formal recognition would also be extended by the United States. The prime minister said to- day that China is obviously in- terested in buying more Cana- dian manufactured goods and is contemplating the purchase of complete plants. BENEFITS MUTUAL "Throughout our dis- cussions in this area, emphasis was lent by both sides on the mutual benefit to be gained from longterm com- mercial agreements." He stressed that the trade picture is not expected to be dimmed by any major ideolo- gical differences between the two nations. "It is seldom possible to come to agreement on the wisdom or the effectiveness of all policies, nor would one ex- pect that this could be the case in a world in which the vagaries of history, the realities of geography and the variations of social systems lend distinctive directions and points of view to governmen- tal policies. "What I found most heart- ening was their under- standing of, and sympathy for, Canada's foreign policy. "In particular. I was not subjected to any demands that future Canadian relations with China would depend for their warmth on our attitudes towards any other country." During the week-long trip. Mr. Trudeau said publicly and privately to Chinese Premier Chou En-lai. that Canada seeks to avoid tension in its foreign relations. "I said as well that, in my belief, the true measurement of national greatness was found not in military might or in political ceremony but in the willingness of a country to recognize the importance of individual welfare, human dignity and a sense of per- sonal accomplisment and fulfillment." CAN LEARN LESSONS Mr. Trudeau indicated that the Western World can learn some lessons in human rela- tions from China. He said he discussed with Chou the possible reunifica- tion of families that have members in China and Canada. The response had been encouraging. Similar talks with Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin in 1971 re- sulted in hundreds of persons being allowed to join relatives in this country, he said. Mr. Trudeau said an immi- gration official already is en route to Peking to help facil- itate visits or emigration by Chinese. I emphasized to Pre- mier Chou the importance with which Canadians as a SAND GRAVEL TOLLESTRUP LSAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE whole viewed this aspect of Canadian-Chinese relations. "I have instructed Canadian officials to waste no time in the implementation of this new understanding." He said he also achieved un- derstandings in several other areas: Cultural and sports ex- changes, consular arrange- ments and exchanges in the fields of science and technology. visit leaves me without any doubt of the wis- dom of the decision of the Canadian government to reverse the long-standing policies of ignoring tne People's Republic of China." OTHERS FOLLOWED Canada officially recogniz- ed China in 1970. setting off a series of similar acts bv other countries. "Because that immense country of talented and in- dustrious people will have an increasing impact on world affairs and because a strengthening and enriching of the bilateral relationship between Canada and China can be beneficial to Canadians, that decision was right and will increasingly prove to be right. "The presence of China in the United Nations and in other international councils makes it vital that Canada's interests anu views be under- stood and. hopefully supported by the Chinese government. The name of Canada is held in high respect in China and as a consequence Ca- nadians are beneficiaries." STANDS TALL The world's tallest tree is a California redwood standing 366 feet high.
