Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE lETHBRIDGJ HERALD Friday, September Harkness still insists nuclear stand sound OTTAWA Harkness, former defence min- isicr whoso resignation Feb. 3, helped topple a govern- ment, still insists that the pro- imclear stiincl lie (ook then was "sound." Getting ready to leave Ot- tawa after a 27-year parlia- mentary career, Hie Progres- sive Conservative MP for Cal- gary Centre said in an inter- view yesterday he did not think he would have "done any- DOOUGLAS HARKNESS thing differently" if he had the helped topple govt. great nuclear debate of 10 years ago to live through again. At the same time he charged that the present Liberal govern- ment committed a mis- take" in cutting Canada's con- tribution to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization two years ago and said the Canadian Armed Forces no longer have the strength lo meet their com- mitments. Mr. Harkness, who has de- cided against seeking re-elec- tion in the Oct. 30 federal vote, is one of Parliament's three longest-serving members. Chinese lift barrier By JAMES PR1NGLE PEKING (Renter) The Chinese have agreed for the first time io allow children of diplomats and residents ot Peking to attend kindergar- tens with Chinese pre-school age cliildren, reliable sources said today. West European, African and Latin American parents in the Chinese capital will be able to send their cliildren to kindergartens run by revolu- tionary street committees where toddlers play with toys and games and learn to dance and sing songs in praise of Chairman Mao. The development, agreed to by the diplomatic service bu- reau, the state organization which handles all aspects of foreigners1 lives here, has caused widespread salisfac- tion among diplomats and other residents of differing ideologies. It is regarded as a possible breakthrough in ttie complete barrier to social contacts with the Chinese people which lias existed here vir- tually since the establisliment of the People's Republic 23 years Bgo and certainly since the start of the Cultural Rev- olution in M60. LIVE IN COMPOUNDS All foreigners in Peking, except a handful of ideologi- cally committed "friends" who work for the Chinese, live in walled compounds completely shut off from any but the most superficial con- tacts with the Chinese. Only a few foreign ministry officials are permitted to ac- cept invitations to foreigners' homes and all Chinese enter- ing the compounds are con- trolled by troops ot the People's Liberation Army on duty at the gates. The first two children to be admitted to kindergarten are both Scandinavian and both three years .Johan- sen, son of the first secretary of the Norwegian embassy and Maria Leijonhufvud, daughter of a Swedihh jour- nalist in Peking. Starting next month both children and possibly the off- spring in other Western em- bassies will spend four hours a day, six days a week at a Chinese kindergarten near the diplomatic compound. jobs at stake By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA CCP) The Seafa- rers' International Union of Canada has called for govern- ment action to plug a hole in transportation policy which it says could lose Canadian sail- ors and shore workers as many as jobs. Leonard J. McLaughlin, SIU president, said Wednesday gov- ernment interpretation of the Commonwealth Shipping Agree- ment of 1931 already has led to unemployment for Cana- dian sailors. Mr. McLaughlin said that the SIU wants (he government to require all stiips operating the Canadian coastal trade to "assume the obligations of Ca- nadian citizcnsliip." This would mean hiring Canadian sailors as Canadian flag vessels did. As a second step, the union wants the government to junk the Commonwealth Shipping Agreement which is no longer followed by other Com- m o n w e a 1 th nations, Mr. McLaughlin said. In a brief to Transport Minis- ter Don Jamieson, the union says the Commonwealth agree- ment has been "negligently ap- by the government. The union said that under the ogreemcnt Canada was re- quired to do no more than ap- ply the same treatment to Com- monwealth ships hips.

Members ot the Halifax bank- ing community were told that tiie bank will be capitalized at million and that the three million shares will have a par value of each.

Lc vinter, a Toront lawyer, the new bank is based on prem- ise of "equal opportunity for all" and that it will place spe- cial emphasis on helping small businessmen. In its first year the bank will have five operating branches: four in Toronto and one in Sud- bury. This is expected to ex- pand to 15 banks in the secont year and 25 before ]977. Canadian liips while carrying Canadian argo between Canadian ports Mr. McLauglilin said. He said SIU members al ready are picketing these ship, carrying foreign flags. Mr. McLaughlin criticized thi Canadian wheat board and th Canadian National Railways fo using vessels flying "flogs convenience." Many shipping companie, prefer lo register their ship under the flag ot a foreign country because registry easy to get and taxes are or non-existent. These flags o convenience nations usually ar small and arc unlikely to on force local and inlernationa shipping regulations.

Two days alter lus resigna- ion, on Feb. 5, 1963, the gov- irnment fell a Commons non-confidence vote and lost the ensuing election to the Liberals under Lester Pearson, who took iffice with a minority govern- nent. Asked what effect the dis- igi.-eement had on his sub- ;equent relations with Mr. Die- 'enbaker, the retiring MP said: haven't been any rela- tions. He walks by me as if be iss never seen me before." And Mr. Harkness himself long since ceased greeting the 'ormer prime minister. "I stopped that when I found I was being cut dead." Mr. Harkness said nuclear weapons were part of- the NATO deterrent, and it was the "great hone" in the early 1950s that, in the face of this deter- rent, the Soviet Union would re- frain from any kind ot attack on the West. POSITION VINDICATED This position has been vindi- cated. ir.aintaiae? Mr. Harkness that decision ot Uie present ment to cut Canadian forces in Europe by half and relieve them of their nuclear weapons "materially reduced" Canada's leverage in world affairs. "We are not pulling our weight in NATO at the present he argued. While saying that Canada should be contrib- uting more, he refused to be pinned down on the size or form of any increased contribu- tion. He made clear, however, tiiat be would not exclude re- entering tiio nuclear field in Europe.

Catherine Chichak, the Con- servative member for Edmon- ton-Norwood, said of the 73 briefs received, only 19 were from Individual citizens. The majority are from groups, she said. Mrs. Chichak said the special legislative committee invest gating principles allowing self regulation and licencing b y some professions will maki reccommemlations that couk affect every citizen for better or worse. She said the committee, which will start hearings Sept. 25, will study fee schedules of professions and decide wheth- er or not some professions should lose some of their aut- onomy. Looked at from a consumer's viewpoint, the public has a right to know whether they are just taking "pot luck" when they hire a lawyer or some other professional. Mrs. Chichak said briefs, which could include letteis to the committee on the subject of professional regulations, will be accepted until hearings be- gin.
