Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FORECAST HIGH TUESDAY NEAR 50. The LetKbddge Herald VOL. LXIV No. 266 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDj PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS 22 PAGES Trudeau target of stinging U.K. attack By CY FOX LONDON (CP) The Daily Telegraph has a stinging editorial attack on Prime Minister Trudeau in connection with the current Canadian visit of So- viet Premier Kosygin. Trudeau "has made such anti-American capital out of Mr. Kosygin's visit that he seems set on be- coming a kind of Western the London newspa- per says in a reference to the neutralist-inclined presi- dent of Yugoslavia. The Telegraph contends that Kosygin "naturally took his cue in Canada from Mr. Trudeau's outrageous statement in Moscow recently that Canada feared Am- erican economic and military domination." "He also look advantage of an invitation to ad- dress a joint Commons-Senate external affairs commit- tee to slander Britain over Northern Ireland." The Conservative-supporting Telegraph says that "Trudeau seems to have convinced many Canadians likewise embarrassed by the dependence on America which will always be Canada's most jealously- guarded relations with Russia in- deed become as close as with America." Questions thinking The paper then asks two questions stout the think- ing of Canadians: "Do they really believe that relations with a closed, iron-curtain dictatorship are as easy as with America, with all her faults? "How long do they think Canada could defend her vast riches without America's The security crackdown on homes in Toronto prior to Kosygin's arrival there was given first place on one of the main national television newscasts in Britain Sunday night, topping in prominence even the latest crisis in Northern Ireland. In Paris, meanwhile, the newspaper Le Monde Doted what it calls Kosygin's offer to buy Canadian indus- trial equipment, notably computers. "This was a v.> of replying i-i restrictions im- posed TRTaSiiiugi .1 on iiiipwii Ci uKabtii J Le Monde says. Cites statement Without taking the hostile viewpoint adopted by The Telegraph, Le Monde cites a Trudeau statement about Canada's desire for having relations with Russia equally friendly as those with the United Stales. The Paris paper agrees with some Canadian com- mentators that the Tudeau statement might mean a turning point in Canadian foreign policy. "The mutual exploitations of resources in the far north isn't really the only factor conducive to 'rap- proachement' between Canada and the Soviet Union and to estrangement with regards to the Americans." Portrayal of Trudeau as an aspiring Western coun- terpart to Tito was a feature of an article on Ko- Eygin's visit published by the Sunday Telegraph, The Daily Telegraph's sister paper. Kosygin would like to see the Canadian prime min- ister in this role, The Sunday Telegraph says, and Tru- deau himself "would probably be happy to move his country into a state of advance he could. Freedom limited "But as both men know, Canada's freedom of ac- tion is a factor the weekly paper attributes to Ottawa's close commercial and political ties with Washington. The Sunday Times, like The Telegraph, emphasized present strains in Canadian-American relations. Citing the current Canadian moves towards better relations with Moscow and Peking and a greater em- phasis on independence, The Sunday Times, in story from Ottawa, says Tradeau "is an arrogant man and the Russians and the Chinese nurture his arrogance." The paper adds that "the White House has studious, ly ignored which may be a mistake on Washing- ton's part. Air conditioning study PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Workers in modern air-conditioned office buildings may brealhe dirtier air than they flunk, a team of scientists says. L'sing instruments thai can measure ono part of gas in a trillion, scientists at the California Institute ot. Technology studied air-conditioning systems in four Los Angeles buildings and reported: much as half of the fresh air entering a room goes from the inlet vent to the outlet vent without mixing the stale air in Ihe room. The result is a grad- ual worsening of Ihe air. exhausted outside the building is often sucked right back in and re-circulated. Sometimes ex- haust air from one building is sucked into the adjacent building. toxic materials used in research or manu- facturing are removed through fume hood exhausts, they aren't, always dispersed to safe levels outside and can be pulled back into (lie building.

Dollar drops back TORONTO (CP) The value of the Canadian dollar dropped back to 99.84 cents U.S. at the open of domestic currency mar- kets Monday after closing Fri- day at 99.97 cents U.S. The decline was attributed to the reduction in the central bank interest rate the Bank of Canada charges for loans to chartered banks. Tire bank reduced the rate Friday to 4% per cent from Lower interest rates in Can- ada make this country a less at- tractive place to deposit foreign currencies. Currency traders said there was little activity on Canadian markets because the United States currency markets were closed for the Veterans' Day holiday. Storm damages U.S. bases From REUTER-AP SAIGON (CP) Typhoon Hester killed more than 80 per- sons and left tens of thousands of Vietnamese homeless while doing heavy damage to U.S. bases. Much of ihe U.S. helicopter fleet in South Vietnam was crip- pled when the typhoon struck during the weekend and de- stroyed or damaged at least 123 helicopters and planes. Thirty-three South Vietnam- ese civilians and soldiers wero killed when Iheir military trans- port plane crashed Sunday 270 miles north of Saigon, military sources said. The sources said only one per- army the crash five miles west of the central coastal port of Qui Nlion. UNITED NATIONS (CP) Diplomats said the race was still neck and neck today as the General Assembly neared a vote on whether to oust Nation- alist China from the United Na- tions. Some said it might end in a tie. The key issue was an Ameri- can resolution to make the ouster an important question re- quiring a two-thirds majority for passage. "We think we're going to win that said spokesman for the U.S. delegation. One diplo- mat friendly to the Americans figured they had a 58-to-57 or 59-to-57 advantage with more fa- vorable votes possible. Should there be a tie, a sec- ond vote would be taken within 48 hours. If the fie persisted, the resolution would fail. Assembly President Adam Malik of Indonesia was said t o hope the vote could come late today. But key delegations be- lieve the voting would start Tuesday. QUESTION CRUCIAL The important question reso- lution was crucial because the Albanian resolution to seat the Chinese Communists and oust the Nationalists is certain to get a majority in the assembly but not a two-thirds majority. The Albanian resolution was entitled to be voted on first be- cause it was submitted first. But the United States had a mo- tion pending to give its resolu- tion priority. The U.S. also was pushing a dual-representation resolution to offer both the Communists and the Nationalists seats in the as- sembly and offer Commun- ists the Chinese seat on the Se- curity Council. Peking has said repeatedly that it would have nothing to do with the United Nations as long as the Nationalists remain in it. Their supporters in the world organization say they mean it, but the Americans say there is no way to tell without trying them out.

Policemen and railway work- ers continued searching through the wreckage seven hours after the crash at 4 p.m. The dead included the two motormen and the two conduc- tors of the trains, which carried 520 passengers, officials said. The victims all were Japanese. Officials of Kintetsu Railways Co., a private railway line, said the two trains smashed together in a single-track funnel, and they were investigating why both entered the tunnel simulta- neously.

Ulster shooting like gangster film Six Albertans die BELFAST (CP) Northern Ireland's weekend toll of dead civilians stood at six today after police marksmen killed a ter- rorist and wounded his woman accomplice outside a Belfast night club. The incident, resembling a gangster movie, happened out- side Ihe Celebrity Club, in the fashionable centre of Belfast, just before midnight Sunday night.

The deaths of tha hm women, who the army said were in a car from which shots were being fired at the troops, pro- voked bitter accusations by re- publicans and civil rights lead- ers against Ihe army's methods and sparked off a scries of vio- lent incidents in Belfast. In Ncwry, Bernadctlc Devlin, civil rights leader and a mem- ber of the British Parliament., told an angry crowd near the spot where the three suspected bank attackers were shot: "These British troops are mur- derers.
