Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE News in brief Koreans storm embassy SEOUL (AP) Scores of South Korean demonstrators invaded the Japanese Em- bassy today, tore down the flag atop the six-storey building, set an embassy car on fire and ransacked some of the offices. Riot police drove the Koreans from the building after 15 minutes. No member of the embassy staff was reported injured, but police inflicted minor cuts and bruises on some of the demonstrators. It was the most violent of the daily anti-Japanese pro.tests in Seoul since a Korean living in Japan tried to kill President Chung Hee Park on Aug. 15 and killed the president's wife instead. Minimum wage hike asked CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Federation of Labor has asked the provincial government to implement a minimum wage in Alberta. Eugene Mitchell, executive director of the AFL, said in an interview Thursday that the current minimum wage of an hour is "government legislated poverty." He said persons working at this wage would make about a year, a figure difficult to maintain an adequate stan- dard of living. Congress backs Ford WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford has launched his public search for a way out of the economic woes of the United States and has receiv- ed assurances from the Democratic Congress that it will stay in session as long as he has proposals for it to con- sider. The word from Capitol Hill came as Ford met Thursday with about 30 economists who offered a wide range of suggestions, including an ap- parent majority view that the money supply should be ex- panded to bring interest rates down. There was less agree- ment on how to moderate the wage-price race. Filipinos massacred ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (AP) Armed men, described by villagers as Christians, raided an upland settlement Thursday and massacred 28 Moslems, police reported.

MiGs threaten S.

GLEN SNELGROVE Development Officer Tanaka seeks broader Japan-Canada relations British leaders begin election-flavored talks LONDON (Reuter) Prime Minister Wilson effec- tively set Britain's next general election campaign in motion when he indicated Fri- day that election day will be within a few weeks. Addressing the annual conference of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in the town of Brighton, Wilson did -everything but announce the election predicted to be Oct. 3 or 10. The prime minister is ex- pected to announce the date after paying a scheduled weekend visit-to the Queen at her Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Political observers believe he will ask the Queen to dissolve Parliament so the official election campaign can get under way. Wilson received a standing ovation at Friday's conference after his appeal for national unity under a Labor government to over- come Britain's economic woes. His 45-minute cluding such election-flavored phrases as "progress in part- that dif- ficult years lay ahead for Bri- tain but he said that the gloom should not be exaggerated. The prime minister said his government wants to see a prosperous industry and this means a strong and confident stock market. He promised that the balance-of-payments deficit on non-oil trade will be eliminated without import restrictions or deflation. On securing wage restraint, Wilson said the only credible method is the so-called social voluntary wage restraint issue which had threatened to split the TUC delegates before its opponents backed down in the interests of unity. But only hours after the prime minister's speech, Opposition Leader Edward Heath warned that statutory controls on wages and prices cannot be ruled out in an inflationary crisis. At a meeting in Elgin, Northern Scotland, Heath said: "As a government we had no wish to become involv- ed in the intricacies of wage negotiations and detailed price controls, nor do we wish to do so again. But it would be the height of irresponsibility to rule out the use of law to fight an inflationary crisis."

Chou-En-lai sick, Fulbright reveals PEKING (Reuter) United States Senator William Fulbright, heading a congressional group visiting West Germany in favor of Haig as NATO head New York Times Service BONN A highly placed West German government source said today that Bonn had "nothing against" the ex- pected nomination of Gen. Alexander M. Haig Jr. to be supreme commander of NATO and United States forces in Europe. British surrendered, claim Irish BELFAST X; TOKYO (CP) Premier Kakuei Tanaka said today he hopes to open a new era in Japanese-Canadian relations during talks later this month with Prime Minister Trudeau in Ottawa. Neither country has worked hard enough in the past to force a strong, broad relationship, Tanaka told visiting Canadian reporters. "We'd like to build a close and intimate he said. "Canada may be able to 'live without Japan. But it is not the case with us. Japan needs Canada." Tanaka is scheduled to begin a four-day Canadian visit Sept. 23. He will spend two days conferring with Trudeau in Ottawa, deliver what has been billed as a ma- jor speech in Toronto, and end his tour in Vancouver. Tanaka and Trudeau met briefly last April in Paris while attending the funeral of the French President Georges Pompidou. At that time, Tanaka said today, he suggested both leaders prepare thoroughly for a formal summit meeting later. "I hope this (meeting) will be the first stepping stone for building a new era in our rela- tionship." Traditional Japanese-Cana- dian ties have been economic. Trade has grown to nearly billion annually from about million in 1953. But the growth has brought Canadian complaints that too many Japanese purchases are raw materials, creating little Canadian employment, while most Canadian purchases are finished manufactured goods. Tanaka said he understands this concern and wants to see "more secondary manufac- turing in Canada" and more long-term supply contracts with Canadian suppliers. Japan doesn't expect Canada to sell raw resources alone, he said. The Japanese premier said both Canada and Japan are heavily dependent on the United States and he wants a more balanced triangular relationship among the three countries. He is to confer with President Ford immediately before his visit to Canada. "Overdependence on any bi- lateral relationship is not Tanaka said. On economic matters, he said all countries face the prospect of recession and a worldwide depression may develop. But there is general world awareness of the need for international co-operation, and the first concern must be inflation, he said. The Japanese inflation rate, more than 23 per cent in 1973, is the highest in the industrialized world. No country should restrict exports or erect trade barriers, to deal with inflation, he said. This would be a dangerous trend. need international eco- nomic co-operation more than ever before. This is the car- dinal principle governing our conduct." Living cost hike suggested for Montreal transit men MONTREAL (CP) A report by investigator Lucien Saulnier on Montreal's troubl- ed transit situation was to be released today. Le Devoir says the report recommends that existing contracts for ali Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission workers be amended to provide cosl-of- iiving wage increases. The newspaper says the re- port also recommends that the Quebec government review its financing of the urban community when the national assembly reconvenes this fall. A strike by garage and maintenance workers, members of the Montreal Transport Union, has closed the subway since Aug. 7 and restricted bus service. Bus service was stopped three hours early, at 7 p.m., Thursday when a march, organized by the Confederation of National Trade Unions, launched a campaign to have workers'- wages indexed to the cost of living. Sinking transit workers led the peaceful 90-minute march by 5.000 people to a rally behind city hall where several Quebec labor leaders address- ed the crowd. Lawrence Hanigan. chairman of the transit com- mission, said bus service would be suspended at 10 tonight until Monday morning to permit supervisory per- sonnel to carry out repairs and maintenance checks as they have done for the last three weekends. The current contract for striking garage and maintenance workers, who cam between and 50 hourly, expires July, 1975. Their union and some of- ficers already have been fined more than for defying a back to-work injunction issued Aug. 8. 'Schools act violates human rights act9 CALGARY
