Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THIS UTHBRIDCE IIERAID Friday, September 4, 1970 Taiwan Big Obstacle In Canada-China Talks By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) After I months and 15 separate meet ings, the Canada-Commimis China talks on diplomatic recog nildon are still officially in prog rcss, but sources said Thursday there are still no indications o a breakthrough. The ball now is in Canada's court as officials here work on a reply to the latest Chinese pro- posal for handling the one basic ter- ritorial claims to the island of Taiwan. The latest proposal, tae ear- lier ones, is being rejected, sources say. And again, Cana- dian negotiators will try to frame a counter-proposal that will side-step any Canadian ac- ceptance of Peking's claims to Taiwan, home of the Chinese nationalist government. Since the talks began in Stockholm, Peking has insisted that any diplomatic recognition agreement contain a clause on its alleged territorial claim over Disability Pension Lags Says Liinclberg VANCOUVER (CP) Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans want a 15 per cent increase hi the basic 100 per cent disEJ-ility pension for veterans of annually, the organization's president said Thursday. J. C. Lundberg, here for the group's annual convention, said the basic disability pension for a single man is supposed to equal the salary of "the lowest paid federal civil sweeper." "But he (the sweeper) now gets a year. We had ask- ed for 10 per cent but now are raising it to 15 because of the cost of living. "While we realize the gov- ernment is trying to combat in- flation we feel this catch up increase is justified." the Island. Canada has stiff resisted any such ment, arguing that such claim have never before been part diplomatic protocols. The early thinking here wa that Peking was insisting c this point as a bargaining d vice, and would moderate i demands as saw-offs oecurre in other areas. But most of tl other points have been cleare up, and this over-riding obstaa still remains. SIGN WITHOUT COMMENT The latest Communist pro posal was that Peking insert its claim into the protocol and tha Canada sign it without commen one way or the other. This L being rejected. Winning Pavilions Selected OSAKA, Japan (Reuters) The Canadian, Swiss and Czech oslovak pavilions were selectee oday as having the best archi- ectural design among the struc- tures at Expo '70 here. The Architectural Institute of Japan presented six architects vho designed the pavilions with ts "special award for architec- tural excellence in Expo J70 pa- vilion design." The architects are Arthur C. Erickson and Geoffrey Massey for the Canadian payih'on, Willy Walter for the Swiss pavilion and Vladimir Palla, Viktor Rudis and Aled Jencek for the CzechoslovaWan pavilion. The Canadian pavilion is pyr- amid shaped, covered entirely with mirrors. The Swiss feature a highly- stylized tree covered with alu- minium and decorated with electric bulbs. The Czechoslovak pavilion, a flat one-storey structure, has outer walls mads of traditional Czech glass. Canada's position regarding the seating of Communist Chin; in the United Nations is depend out on the outcome of tlw Stock holm talks. When the matter was voted on last year, the talks were in progress and Canada abstained. With another vote ex pected in November, officials here predict that Canada wil again abstain. Officials said hi the more re- cent Stockholm last one was Aug. Chinese negotiators appearec more anxious to reach an agree- ment with Canada. The talks were described as warm and friendly. But there was little modera- tion in Peking's stand. One official here said it would be "fair to say" that Peking doesn't seem desperately anx- ious to achieve diplomatic rec- ognition with Canada. He said the Communists appear to be more anxious to establish a precedent, in having Canada ac- knowledge its claims to Taiwan. If Canada agreed to this, the official said, other countries undoubtedly face the same demands hi future diplo- matic exchanges.

It will be a university here well-known scholars wij be able to study inter-discipli- nary subjects such as the envi- ronment, which includes studies of biology, demography, sociol- ogy, engineering and others.
