Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuaaday, October 23.1973 News In brief Liberal MLA resigns VICTORIA (CP) Liberal MLA Dave Brousson Monday night announced to the British Columbia legislature that he is resigning his north Vancouver-Capilano seat because he can no longer carry out the dual roles of politician and businessman. Just back from a four-week business and holiday trip to Russia and western Europe, the 53-year-old engineer told a hushed House "there is simp- ly not enough time in the day to allow me to follow two careers." He said he was going to work full-time in his small heating and air conditioning equipment company where he felt he could make the greatest contribution. Arabs start fund drive EDMONTON (CP) The city's Arab community has set up a committee to raise funds for medical supplies to be sent to Israel and Arab nations. committee spokesman Edward Saddy said Monday Because groups such as the committee can't purchase prescriptions, government co- operation is being solicited. Distribution of the supplies will be handled through Red Crescent, the Middle East's equivalent to the Red Cross. Supplies will be sent to the Red Cross for forwarding to the Red Crescent. In the 1967 Middle East war. Edmonton's Arab community sent non-partisan aid in the form of clothing. Plan labor code change VICTORIA (CP) Labor Minister Bill King introduced amendments to the labor code legislation Monday which would prohibit raiding by another union during the first year of a collective agreement The minister said the amendments would also provide that the proposed new labor relations board submit an annual report and make some technical changes regarding the staffing of the board. Under existing regulations, Mr. King said outside the House, another union may seek certification of a group of employees during the seventh and eighth month of a collective agreement. The amendment would change that to rule out the first year of a collective agreement, he said. Fraud charges dropped EDMO (CP) Proceedings on two fraud charges against the president of Challenge Homes, a prefabricating home com- pany, have been stayed at the request of the crown The two charges against John Bell. 48. of Spruce Grove, were stayed after Mr.- Justice S. S. Lieberman of the Alberta Supreme Court dis- missed a similar charge in- volving similar circum- stances at a recent trial in Vegreville, Alta. Mr. Bell is president and director of the Home Construction Company, which operated in the Stony Dlain and Spruce Grove areas. No suspects in hotel fire VANCOUVER (CP) There are definite indications a hotel fire early Sunday which took five lives was deliberately set. Chief Fire Warden George Birnie said Monday. Mr. Birnie said his opinion is based on examination of the fourth-floor washroom of the Commercial Hotel, where the blaze originated. He said there is a definite indication a flammable liquid was used to start it. There were no suspects, he said. Charter flights top agenda OTTAWA (CP) Charter flights will again highlight Canada-U S air negotiations which resume here today Canada and the U.S. have been working for more than four years to renegotiate the air agreement which regulates the year traffic between the two countries. Agreement has been reach- ed on the other two main elements of the routes and preclearance. Brewers seek price hike WINNIPEG (CP) The Manitoba Liquor Control Commission plans to write provincial brewers asking for their financial statements for the last year and information justifying price increases. Five Manitoba brewers have asked for a meeting with the commission to deal with the matter of price increases. Brewers say spiralling costs for wages and supplies over the last five years, along with lower-than-anticipated sales increases, are forcing the companies to seek higher prices. Beer prices were last increased in 1968. Judge withdraws judgment TULSA, Okla.

Box 516 LethbrMge, Alberta Mid-East ceasefire eases pressure on world nerves By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent Agreement to stop shooting in the Middle East eases pressure on world nerves, but experience suggests that the relief may only be temporary. This is ceasefire No. 4 for Arabs and Israelis. It looks as fragile as its predecessors Ceasefires such as those of the Middle East, the Asian subcontinent, Korea, In- dochina and elsewhere were honored mostly in the breach. Only when the world com- munity put actual forces between the warring parties did ceasefires tend to be ef- fective, and even that proved insufficient. Here, in brief, is a rundown on how ceasefires have fared in the Cold War era: India-Pakistan After the Asian subconti- nent was divided upon withdrawal of British rule, the two new and over which would rule fabled Kashmir. The United Nations interven- ed and in January, 1949, drew New feed grain prices in effect WINNIPEG (CP) The first domestic selling prices for prairie feed grains under the federal government's new feed grains policy were an- nounced Monday by the Cana- dian Wheat Board. The new prices went into effect at p.m. CDT Monday. The new prices, basis Thunder Bay or Vancouver, are as follows: No 3 Canada western red spring wheat, a bushel; No. 1 feed barley, a bushel; No. 1 feed oats, a bushel. The new prices will be ad- justed every two weeks in ac- cordance with the procedures established under the federal program. Prices for lower grades of grain will be dis- counted at normal spreads. The new prices are the basis for any sale of prairie feed grains marketed for use in Canada by the wheat board. Prices for purchases from prairie country elevators will be arrived at by subtracting freight costs from the elevator point to Thunder Bay or Vancouver and adding country elevator commission charges. As previously announced, domestic selling prices for prairie feed grains under the new federal policy, are based on the off-board price for local sales within the prairies and a fixed amount to cover costs of putting the grain into position at Thunder Bay or Vancouver. The off-board price is the weighted-average price for feed grains purchased locally by prairie feed mills, feed lots, hog operators and poultry and egg producers. The off-board prices receiv- ed for Monday's announce- ment were a bushel for wheat; a bushel for barley; and a bushel for oats. A marketing charge, agreed to by the wheat board and the Canadian Livestock Feed Board, is added to the off- board price to establish the actual domestic selling price at Thunder Bay or Vancouver. Under this agreement, the marketing charge has been set at 42V4 cents a bushel for wheat; 28% cents for barley and 23 Mz cents for oats Higher price would hike output WINNIPEG (CP) Cana- dian farmers could nearly double their output of most products but they will rise to the challenge only if they are guaranteed reasonable prices, Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Monday. Uncertainty about future markets and fears that increased production will send prices tumbling are the chief deterrents to expansion of the farm economy, he told a world grain seminar. "If you really believe that Canadian farmers are impor- tant, and if you really believe that you will need all of the food they can produce, then you will have to give them some firm you will buy their produce at reasonable he said. Mr. Whelan urged world buyers of Canadian products to join Ottawa in guarantee- ing high returns to farmers. "There is a very definite role that could, and I believe should, be played by our inter- national customers who buy 60 per cent of all the food our farmers he said. Is Religion A Racket? Come to Bible Discussions at SPORTS CENTRE 11th St. and 5th 8. HOOIft NO. 1 Tuesday, Oct. p.m. YOU are WELCOME a ceasefire line, but tension persisted and erupted in renewed war late in 1965. The Soviet Union, disliking a prospect of subcontinent in- stability being exploited by its rival. China, was instrumen- tal in bringing about a new ceasefire in January, 1966. But in 1971, the opposing forces in Kashmir fought again, this time in connection with the emergence of Bangladesh as a country in- dependent from Pakistan. As part of that peace settlement, the two agreed to a line separating them in Kashmir, but despite concessions by both, the area remains a source of tension. Korea When the Communist side seemed to be doing poorly late in 1950, the United States re- ceived a Soviet signal of inter- est in a ceasefire providing for withdrawal to pre-war lines. While the two sides wrangled fighting rose in in- tensity. It was not until July, 1953, that a ceasefire agree- ment was signed. The ceasefire line has re- mained a flashpoint ever since, frequently violated. Arab-Israel After the Arabs were defeated in the 1948-1949 war, a UN sponsored armistice and ceasefire line were es- tablished. But violations were constant and the tension exploded in the 1956 Suez war, provoked by a British-French and Israeli invasion of Egypt. The object of the invasion had been to topple Gamal Abdel Nasser and reverse his decree nationalizing the Suez canal. The main result, however, was, in the words of one West- ern leader, to have the two su- perpowers snarling in rage at one another "like two wound- ed beasts." World calamity might have resulted, but Washington and Moscow found a common interest in preventing deeper world crisis. The British and French were required to pull out and the Israelis to withdraw to their pre-war boundaries un- der a new ceasefire arrange- ment that called for installa- tion of a UN emergency force between the Arabs and Israelis, as a buffer. That ceasefire, too, often was violated. Tension peaked again in 1967 and when Nasser demanded the UN force leave it complied, perhaps to his surprise. The buffer gone, new war was inevitable, and in six days the Arabs were defeated by the Israelis. The UN Security Council recommended that Israel leave occupied areas. Wider crisis was averted. Ceasefire arrangements that time proved as ineffec- tive as in previous cases. Ear- ly this year President Anwar Sadat of Egypt publicly proclaimed his intention of regarding Ceasefire lines as void and his intention to invite yet another confrontation. Indochina When Ho Chi Minh's Viet- minh forces overwhelmed the French in 1954, a ceasefire was established permitting regrouping on both sides of a line that eventually would separate North and South Vietnam. Guerrilla war never ended, however, and de- veloped in the 1960s into the longest and most painful U.S. war. New evidence on another Nixon deal Seek honkers Protesters gather in front of the White House Mon- day calling for the im- peachment of President Nixon. One protester, wearing a mask of the President, holds a sign encouraging motorists to "Honk for Impeachment." Motorists respond to protest WASHINGTON two days now, the quiet tran- quility of the White House lawn has been shattered by passing motorists who are re- sponding to demonstrators' signs that read: "Honk for Impeachment. More than signatures have been gathered on peti- tions calling for President Nixon's impeachment, say members of the ad hoc Com- mittee to Impeach the Presi- dent, a group organizing week-long demonstrations. Police estimated that about 200 demonstrators marched in front of the White House Mon- day. And White House watchers say there is little doubt that President Nixon received an earful of blaring noise Mon- day when he strolled from the serenity of his Oval Office across the private street to his suite in the Executive Office Building. "If he didn't hear them, he had cotton in his said one presidential observer. But, when the president made a speedy retreat to his mountain hideaway at Carnp David, M., several hours later, White House press spokesman Gerald Warren said it had nothing to do with the demonstrations. By MICHAEL PUTZEL WASHINGTON (AP) New evidence has surfaced ty- ing President Nixon to an alleged deal involving a pledge of million in cam- paign money in exchange for administration favors for the dairy industry. Investigative sources said Monday they have obtained a letter addressed to Nixon Dec. 16, 1970, reminding him of the industry's past support and telling him of the milk producer's need for im- mediate administration aid. The letter was written, the sources said, by Pat Hillings of the American Milk Producers Inc., the major in- dustry group. The Associated Press has confirmed the letter's tents from four separate sources. "The thrust of the letter was a request that the presi- dent approve new milk tariffs that the industry was in- terested in." one source said. "It pointed out that the in- dustry had million Top energy problem to discussed OTTAWA (CP) Nixon's top energy adviser will meet Energy Minister Donald Macdonald today to discuss a growing list of Canada-United States energy problems. John Love, the former Colo- rado governor who took charge of the president's energy policy office in July, was invited by Mr. Macdonald about two weeks ago. It is the first meeting between the two men and their talks will cover a variety of thorny issues precipitated by changing Canadian energy policies. The list includes: 40-cents-a-barrel crude oil export tax that an- noyed U.S. officials when an- nounced last month without advance consultation. cutback in Cana- dian natural gas exports to protect British Columbia con- sumers from winter shor- tages. proposed exten- sion of the interprovincial pipeline to Montreal This would reduce Quebec and Atlantic reliance on imported oil from Venezuela and the Middle East and could lead to cutbacks in Canadian oil ex- ports to the U.S. possible retreat from an earlier commitment to supply northwestern U.S. areas with oil if the U.S. aban- dons plans for a Trans-Alaska Pipeline System opting instead for an overland route through Canada's Mackenzie Valley. impact on both coun- tries from war-related oil cut- backs in the Middle East. Municipalities win in tax sharing issue By BOB DOUGLAS EDMONTON (CP) Municipal leaders won a breakthrough Monday in attempts to get senior levels of government to join them in discussing new ways of shar- ing tax revenue. Delegates at the national trilevel conference appeared stunned when Ontario Treas- urer John White said he ac- cepted the municipal proposal for a revenue-sharing inquiry, the main municipal goal at the conference. Then federal Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford said he agreed with Mr. White's suggestion that the federal, provincial and municipal delegations appoint a sub- committee to work out guides for such an inquiry. Mr. Basford said he would not commit himself to a blanket endorsement of the in- quiry until further discussion of the matter. Fraser Mopney, Nova Scotia municipal affairs minister who heads the joint provincial group, said he would like the scope of the in- quiry spelled out before taking a stand. He immediately call- ed a meeting of provincial municipal affairs ministers to discuss the issue and appoint a representative to the sub- committee. available for 1972 campaign but continued aid for U.S. dairy farmers was necessary if they were to con- tinue their support SUBSIDIES GO UP A month later, when the new Nixon budget was an- nounced, proposed dairy sub- sidies rose nearly 10 per cent, compared with a slight in- crease for feedgrain subsidies and a major decrease in food- aid shipments, another method of government farm support. The Hillings letter noted that it was bringing up a "sen- sitive political the sources said, and evidence in- dicates it went directly to then-presidential chief of staff H. R. Haldeman. One source said it isn't certain whether Nixon read the letter or was merely told of its contents. The following March, how- ever, three events took place: March 22, 1971, the first contribution from milk producers was secretly delivered to a group of dummy campaign com- mittees that later turned their holdings over to the Nixon re- election campaign. following day, Presi- dent Nixon and then- Agriculture Secretary Clif- ford Hardin met at the White House with 16 spokesmen for the dairy industry. March 25, Hardin re- versed a 13-day-old decision not to grant an increase in federal price supports for milk and announced approval of a 27-cents-a-hundredweight increased in price supports, claiming he had received new economic data. Americans split prize for physics STOCKHOLM (CP) The 1973 Nobel Prize for Physics was split today between two Americans, Leo Esaki and Ivar Giaever, and a Briton, Brian Josephson. The Swedish Academy of Sciences said it was awarding half of the 510.000 kronor (about award for the two Americans' experimental discoveries regarding tunnell- ing phenomena in semi- conductors and super- conductors Housing loan level extended EDMONTON (CP) The maximum National Housing Act loan level of has been extended to include a wider range of housing, Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford said Monday. He said in a news release is- sued at the national tri-level conference here that existing single-family dwellings now will qualify for the maximum loan. The previous limit for such homes was The higher loan limit will also apply to new and existing multiple housing under co- operative and condominium arrangements, the minister said. The loan level has been restricted to new single- family dwellings. The changes are effective immediately. The minister said the new loan levels will reduce down payments, assisting low and moderate-income families to buy a house. hjur-dur.v the modaciylic wig fibre from Monsanto Look-SS.OO Just 3 of the many wigs available noRmfln cosmETic BOUTIQUE Gifts Wigs Perfumes Phona 328-1525 at ;
