Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD _ Friday, September 10, 1971 UNITED NATIONS (Router) The Soviet Union has pro- posed a conference on disarma- ment to include every country. The suggestion was made Judges decisions rapped TORONTO (CP) A former University of Saskatchewan law professor" says Canadian judges often hand down second-rate de- cisions because they lack suffi- cient knowledge about law. E. A. Tollcfscin. now with (lie federal justice department's law research section, made the comment in an article he wrote in the current edition of the Uni- versity of Toronto law journal. Sir. Tollefson said the judicial system is set up wilh the expec- tation that judges should be ex- perls in the entire field of law, but "a modest knowledge" of uiiiiiirt _ [wo or three brandies of law is musl a key role irl all anyone should be expected to burgeDmilg computer indus- liave. Mr. Tollefson also said that a comparison of judgments handed down by Canadian courts compared with those of British courts "would almost certainly be far from compli- mentary to the Canadian judici- ary." But he said Canadian judges are asked to decide questions Andrei Groniyko presents memorandum Soviet Union proposes ivorld disarmament conference Wednesday in an item submit- ted lo the provisional agenda of the upcoming General Assem- bly.

Failure, warns a council re- port to the government, will rob Canadians of great social and economic benefits from an in- dustry which already shows worldwide signs of matching au- tomobile manufacturing in int- portance. The Mr. Tollefson suggested Cana- dian courts ought to undertake more s should ialization. Judges also given researchers and peciali be giv should make greater use out of outside experts. sec that it grows along Cana- dian lines. Expenditures o n computer equipment and supplies totalled about million in 1968 and could grow to nearly S2 billion I in 1974 and to nearly billion in 1979, council studies found. At this rate, the computer in- dustry could account for be- tween two and five per cent of the country's gross national product by the end of the dec- ade. In 1908, total Canadian expen- ditures on new automobiles ac- counted for four per cent of the GNP, and outlays on computers and computing for less than half of one pel1 cent. The first need is for develop- ment of a trans-Canada com- puter communications network which will relay data from place to place across the coun- try, the report says. Nationwide banking through computers with a coast-to-coast connections is being developed by the Bank of Montreal. A na- tional medical records system for doctors is being evolved. So also is a distribution system for scientific and technical informa- tion. The day will come when the consumer will plug into a com- puter to do his shopping from his own home or conduct all his financial transactions without cheques and virtually without cash. j These arc Fome predictions of the report's authors, a five-man committee headed by Dr. Leon Kalz, dire-dor of the University LONDON (neuter) Four of Saskatchewan nuclear accel- armed bandits escaped wilh an erator laboralorv. estimated today after They say computers linked taking a bank manager from his, ovcr great distances, will enaHe Surcharge will affect fish exports VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia fishing indus- try fears the S2.5 million a year in" groundfish exports to the United Stales will be "badly af- fected" by President Nixon's 10 per cent import surcharge. "But just how badly, we can't say yet." says Ken Campbell, manager of the Fisheries As- sociation ot B.C. He said the big question is who is going lo absorb the sur- charge, the Canadian exporter or the American importer. Tinned salmon is also affect- ed by the surcharge, he said, but B.C. exports in Ihis cate- gory have already been trim- med by a standing nine per cent tariff. Mr. Campbell said tinned salmon sales to the. U.S. have been low for some lime. Steal S24.000 home at gun-point, driving him to his west London branch and forcing him to open the vaults.

The reasons arc Canada's small and scattered market, powerful competition from pro- tected foreign firms, high costs and industrial fragmentation. Superhighway diverted for elderly sisters EGHAM, England (AP) The British government is di- verting a superhighway so that two elderly sisters can stay in the ivy-covered cot- tage where they have lived for 65 years. Environment Minister Peter Walker ordered that a one- mile section of the new S29 million highway must be re- routed for the sake of Const- ance and Doris Watson, re- spectively aged SB and Bfi Under original plans Ihe highway would have plowed across Homestead cottage, which is .INI >cars old and lisled as a place of interest in Ihis SiuTcy County village.

China, as the most realistic ap-1 slales which significant proach to the problem. "At the same it added, "the course of events on the in- ternational scene makes it de- sirable to encourage more ac- tive efforts on the pail of all countries in the world, both nu- clear and non-nuclear, to solve the problems relating to disarm- ament." The memorandum said the proposed conference could con- centrate on nuclear disarma- ment if that was the wish of the participants. Gromyko said a world dis- armament conference "could become a forum where all coun- tries of the world without excep- tion could jointly discuss the problems of disarmament in all their ramifications and attempt to find feasible and generally acceptable means of solving these problems." NEEDS ALL NATIONS "In order to be successful, such a conference must be truly universal. All countries should be represented at the world dis- armament conference on the basis of equality. Of special im- portance would be the participa- tion in the conference of all 1 armed forces and armaments. as the nuclear armaments race arouses the greatest anxiety among peoples, primary attention could be de- voted to the questions of pro- hibiting and eliminating nuclear weapons, if the majority of the participants in the conference should so desire." Some observers were im- pressed by the low key Soviet approach to the subject, which Welfare cases sliow decline CALGARY (CP) The nuir> her of welfare cases declined in August, to but was still ahead by of the number a year ago. _____ Social Service Director Sam Blakely said the figures have declined steadily since a peak of in March but he warn- ed the number of people receiv- ing assistance would probably increase sharply in November.

Gromyko himself will attend the assembly session, which be- gins Sept. 21, and there has been persistent speculation that Premier Alexei Kosygin also may make the trip, perhaps coming to New York from a vL'iil to Canada in late October.
