Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta mt LtinurtiuuE neriALU i vciwor Kissinger predicts Asian reductions U.S. holds substantial forces despite Vietnam cease-fire By DAN SOUTHERLAND Christian Science Monitor SEOUL. South Korea Despite the Vietnam cease fire and growing detente, the United States seems to be planning to maintain substan- tial forces on the Asian mainland in both South KtT'.v: aici Thailand for tu oome Ot the nearly U.S servicemen stationed in Southeast Asia and the adja- cent Pacific, about 80.000 are based in South Korea and Thailand The men stationed in South Korea constitute the largest U S ground force in Asia And the biggest con- I'.or.lration ot U S aiwviticre outside the I'nited States ran be ton rid ;n Thailand Other substantial numbers of U.S. servicemen are based on ships and in Japan. Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines and the Ryukyus Islands. In Senate testimony before his confirmation as secretary of state. Henry Kissinger predicted "very substantial reductions" in these forces in Asia were probable in a five to 10 year period. Congressional votes to reduce the U.S military presence overseas could result in an acceleration of such reduc- tions But if U.S government and military planners have their way, substantial forces will remain in both South Korea and Thailand for at least the next few years. In South Korea, the United States has linked further troop withdrawals to what it con- siders to be a growing threat from the Communist North American military sources here say during the past three years the North Koreans have built new airfields near the demilitarized zone, introduc- ed new types of aircraft, in- creased the size of their MIG 21 jet force, and added new missile firing.

This program, which began in early 1971, was supposed to take five years. But U S of- ficials have recently indicated that it may have to be extend- ed for an additional two years because of congressional cut- backs in funds for the program This implies the United States would not consider the South Korean armed forces self sufficient before mid 1977. A further consideration is the negotiations between North and South Korea which broke off earlier this year. As both U.S and South Korean officials see it. if the North South talks resume, having U.S troops on its soil gives the South Korean side extra bargaining power The U.S. troop presence also amounts to a bargaining chip in the continuing big power negotiations between the United States, China, and the Soviet Union. The Chinese have privately indicated to American diplomats, however, that the U S troop presence in Korea does not worry them greatly. In Thailand, the situation is more complicated Former foreign minister Thanat Khoman has become a vocal critic of the continuing U.S. presence in Thailand, and some of the country's once quiescent university students have grown suspicious of U.S intentions There are people within the Thai government, particular- ly in the foreign ministry, who want to speed up U.S. withdrawals But the generals who con- trol the Thai government seem to favor a cautious approach Their feelings about the U.S presence are certainly more mixed than those of their South Korean counterparts, but they are op- posed to quick withdrawals, and fear the economic conse- quences that would result from a loss of U.S military spending in Thailand.

Crown prosecutors and police have too cozy a relationship, a three man board reviewing the administration of justice in Alberta's lower courts has been told City lawyer Rostyk Sadow- nik made the comment in an 82 page brief to the board headed by Mr. Justice W. J. C. Kirby of the Alberta Supreme Court. The other two members of the board, which began a five-day hearing here Monday, are Dr. Max Wyman, president of the University of Alberta and Ted Bower, editor of The Red Deer Advocate. Mr. Sadownik told the board that judges, prosecutors and police should be separated and suggested a special chambers judge for provincial courts should be appointed This would eliminate the necessity of Crown prosecutors and police going to regular judges for the swearing of informations, applications for search warrants and arrest warrants. Thus, judges who are to hear cases would hear nothing about them through police and prosecutors asking for warrants and possibly dis- cussing the cases The situation is even more difficult in rural areas, where RCMP frequently depend on the provincial judge for legal help in drawing up infor- mations, Mr Sadownik said. He suggested it might be good to have a chambers judge on circuit to handle such things as informations, search warrants and arrest warrants so that the judges who will have to hear the cases won't be subjected to rumors and casual discussion of those cases in advance He also suggested all judges provincial court, district court, supreme court and appellate division judges should be paid the same and none should feel inferior to any others "I don't think there's enough respect for provincial court Mr. Sadownik said in his brief He recommended provin- AGNEW WATCH POPULAR ANAHEIM, Calif.

Dr. Hale Dougher- ty, said- "Fifteen minutes after the announcement came that he had resigned, the phone really began to ring again. People want it as a collector's item." cial court judges sit three weeks on the bench and then have one week off to regroup for the next session. Also, judges should have a month of holidays every year "I don't think anybody, whatever his makeup, can sit day after day in provincial court without becoming cynical and hardened." Newly appointed judges should be given a briefing ses- sion on the duties of a judge and on sentencing, he said, adding that seminars on sentencing might alleviate the wide disparity which exists between different judges' sentencings. The lawyer also recommended applications for search warrants be made by a Crown prosecutor with no one else in the room, so a judge would not be influenced by anything but the evidence before him INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD Established 1911 Lower Floor 517 4th Ave. S.
