Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 13, 1971 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAIO 23 HIT BY GANGES WATERS Two boats loaded with passengers pass each other on main slreel of Nobodwip, India, recently, where flood waters from the River Gan- ges continue to devastate the area. Floods started in early August and have continued to rise daily, causing an estimated peope homeless and bringing business to a standstill. Nabadwip is the centre of India's handloom cloth industry. Canadians in Europe Money, not rides, was the major problem LONDON (CP) How young Canadians managed to reach most parts of Europe on a shoestring this summer was as varied as the places they stitched maple leaf flags. "Money, not rides, was the biggest said Nick Soper, an 18-year-old pre-med student from Corner Brook, Nfld.. who financed three months hitch-hiking from Spain to Scandinavia on He and partner Ken Camp- bell, also from Comer Brook, generally steered clear of cit- ies with budget-breaking res- taurants and bus fares. They rolled up in sleeping bags by the roads, cleaned up in lakes or public baths and learned to make sandwiches from "any- cheese and or- anges in Spain." "This way we're meeting more of the people of the countries w e 'r e travelling said Nick. "We've been invited to people's homes several times." He said the Canadian flags Leo Cadieux builds 'bridges' Canada-France relations firm up PARIS (CP Leo Cad- ieus, journalist, politician and diplomat, has played an tant role in bringing Franco- Canadian relations back (o nonnal from the difficult pe- riod that followed Gen. Charles de Gaulle's 1967 visit to Quebec. The 63-year-old Canadian ambassador to France stepped into his job last tall and has succeeded in untan- gling what had become a twisted triangle of relations. He has helped both Quebec and Ottawa understand that it is not necessary to force France into a nosition of !mv- ing to choose between the two governments. And if Ottawa and Quebec have disagreements, he says, it is up lo the federal and provincial governments to set tie them without any outside interference. Not too long ago Canada- France relations were shaky. At certain levels French offi- cials would forget to invite senior Canadian embassy per- sonnel to important functions. French interest seemed lo be focused on Quebec. During Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa's visit to France in April, Mr. Cadieux was a head-table guest at a dinner given by the Quebec delegation in Paris. There, Maurice Schumann, French foreign minister, proposed a toast "to Canada, of which Quebec is a part."

He was born in the small Laurentian community of St. Jerome north of Montreal in 1908. In bis diplomatic career it has helped give the Canadian embassy in Paris the reputa- tion of being "a happy em- bassy." Asked about his ambitions, Mr. Cadieux said in an inter- view: "1 have reached that happy age where I can settle down in the present. I have no men- tal reservations and I don't have any plans He was told there have been rumors he could become Can- ada's next French-Canadian governor -general. "I don't want to speculate on any rumor, as flattering as this one is to me. I want to work out my duty from day to day." The ambassador said two events in his life had a great influence on him. "The first was when I lived in France as a war corre- spondent after the liberation. Life was disorganized; trans- porlation did not exist; France herself was badly hurt. TUKNED TO POLITICS "We could only work at night. Despite all that, I was able to write more than one article a day for my news- paper It was a difficult pe- riod, but it had important ef- fects on me." In the 1960s Mr. Cadieux turned to politics, the second major influence. "People asked me lo run several times in Terrebonnc riding. I hesitated for a long time before I finally ac- cepted. In 1962 I was elected, then re-elected in 1963, 1965 and 1968." The most difficult decision in his life came in 1965 when then prime minister Lester Pearson asked him to join the cabinet as associate defence minister.

"I jumped into the job, be- came familiar with the de- partment and when 1 was asked to take over national defence two years later I was much calmer about accepting it." It was while Mr. Cadieux was defence minister that the integration of Canadian armed forces was consoli- dated. Canada's role in inter- national military agreements was re-assessed and man- power in the forces was re- duced SMOOTH-WORKING TEAM "I worked with total dedica- says Mr. Cadieux. "It was a period when I my- self had the most problems and the most decisions to make. It was the most ex- h a u s t i n g, stimulating and happiest time of my life, even if I was worried, frustrated and upset." Mr. Cadieux presented his credentials to the French gov- ernment Oct. 16, 1970. Since then he has moulded the Ca- nadian embassy staff into a smooth-working team. He spends long days at the embassy and he also greets visitors and attends official luncheons and dinners. As for his spare time Mr. Cadieux says: "I don't have any. Since my arrival in Sep- tember I have purchased quite a few books. I've only had time to ruffle the pages." Mr. Cadieux has been a vig- orous reader since his days as publisher of La Revue Mod- erne, a French-Canadian magazine. For 15 years he came to France regularly to search out novelists for his publications. He placed about 500 authors in print. ARISES EARLY The Canadian ambassador gets up about a.m. each day and often walks a mile to the embassy. His early-rising habits are a carry-over from his student days at Ste. Therese seminary in Blain- ville north of Montreal. During the kidnap crisis in Quebec last October, two po- licemen were assigned to the ambassador in Paris. And he took them along on his early- morning walks. Mr. Cadieux says he is pleased that now he can eat at least one meal a day al home with his wife and sev- en-year-old sou. Wlrile in the federal cabinet he seldom had time for that. (Trade office iii Peking to be eliscussed TOKYO (AP) The United Slates and China plan to hold negotiations to establish a United States trade office in Pe- possibly before President Nixon makes liis planned visit to the Chinese capital, the news- paper Mainichi Shimbun reports today. The newspaper attributes its rcporl lo informed government sources. The U.S. embassy and the Japanese foreign ministry said they had no information. The newspaper gives no de- tails on when or where the agreement reached, or where the talks would be held. There has been speculation that the Chinese embassy in 01- lawa may serve as n link for Chinesc-U.S. talks on arrange- mcnls for Nixon's Irip .iiid olhrr matters relating to the two countries. on their packs have attracted people willing to chat and good rides. Others have not been so lucky. Highways outside such cit- ies as Amsterdam and Mu- nich bristle with as many as 40 on stretched thumbs each staking a hitching spot only a few paces from a neighbor. Driven off the high-speed Autobahns of Germany, hilch- ers tell of spending hours and sometimes days in highway ramp vigils or swarming around motorists in servica stations seeking rides. France and Spain were no- toriously meagre hitch-hikinE grounds this summer. "It took me six days to cover the 400 miles from Nice to the Spanish said Denis Ilouillard from Trols- Rivieres, Que., who sported a blue and while Quebec fleuc- de-lis on his pack.

"The only people who Oil coated birds nursed to health SAN FRANCISCO API Hundreds of ocean birds coated in a huge San Fran- cisco Bay oil spill have been nursed back to health by vol- unteer humaus who fed them, played recorded ocean noises and taught them to swim again in plastic kiddie pools. An estimated sea gulls, mergansers, m u r r e s and scoters were caught last January in the massive slick of heavy fuel oil that followed e collision of two ships. Several thousand died from drowning, shock or exhaus- tion. An estimated were picked up alive by an army of volunteers, but many died within a few hours. Two bird care centres were established to try to help them recuperate. The last 11 of the Richmond Bird Rescue Centre alumni fluttered off to freedom last week. Stand Oil of California, owner of ths two tankers, paid the in bills for saving the to about per survivor. Ralph Sleiner, 20, a physi- cist who supervised the centre, said that in the first few weeks 40 birds a day dropped dead of shock at (lie centre. Autopsies showed, their adrenal glands had swol- len to 10 times normal size. The main cure for shock was "good old tender loving care" by hundreds of human volunteers. The crude oil from the spill destroyed the water-repelling feature of feathers, causing the birds to Jose their insula- tion and ability to stay afloat. Volunteers built four large plywood swimming pools with sloping sides like the sea- shore. They marched their charges to the shallow pools and used fishing nets to rescue the birds when they went under. At first most birds could swim only a few minutes Ire- fore sinking, but in three to six days, they were swimming two to three hours. Birds with rapidly healing feathers were released as early as March, but only after they passed the senior swim test of several nights in (he pool. Tlie volunteers manned the centre around the clock for no pay. talked to me were tourists." Los Williams, 22, of Rcgina, decided to avoid hit-or-miss hitch-hiking by pooling re- sources will] three friends to buy a used van in Am- sterdam. But they found long hair sometimes repels repairmen. "We blew the engine in Ger- many and the only repair man in town told us he had no time to fix it" said Les, whose soft brown hair sweeps just below ear level. They were bailed out by a comparably hirsute German students who told them about the town's hairdressing pref- erences, found tlieni another engine and installed it for ?50. "We also found out the van was worth half what we paid for said Les. Van travelling kept basic expenses to a day but meant more thorough checks at border crossings, particu- larly when they ended up in East mistake. "We took the wrong ferry from Denmark and just had to keep on said Les. "We had a 45 minute wait to get into Berlin while they took the van he said. "They went through every- pored over my address book." Other travellers resorted to motorcycles, scooters, bicy- cles, Rhine river barges and foot. Those with international student identity cards hopped about the Continent on cheap flights offered by youth organ- izations like the British Stu- dent Travel Centre. Sample one-way fares: London to Paris S13.20; London to Lenin- grad S4C. Many girls favored EuraB- passes allowing students age 14 to 23 (wo months unlimited travel and sleeping on trains for "You can just get on a train if there's nowhere to stay and get rid of your travelling time while you said Colleen Markle, a bangle-bedecked high school student from To- ronto who has toured 14 coun- tries in two months.
