Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 Tilt inKBRIDGE HERAID 13, 1972 Federal seeks new outlets to iirvest grain money WINNIPEG (CP) Federal Groin Ltd., abniptly which vyilhdrcw the grain trade in February, is looking for new financial fields to till. In addition to managerial in- tangibles, the company has million in cash. "This is.a selling game, said company president Stew- art A. Searlc Jr. "We have to sell Ihe services we have to of- fer along with the cash." Shareholders were given a commitment at an annual meeting in March, after Fed- eral completed a 90 million deal with the three Prairie wheat pools. If the firm, which name change, doesn't lind_ suit- able outlets for its money by March, 1974, a distribution wiU be made to shareholders. Mr. Searle, who succeedec George H. Sellers as presidenl last month, said a big asset is Feferal knowl- edge of the west. Mr. Sellers remains as chairman of the ex- ecutive committee. "Our people have worked in the small communities in West- ern said Mr. Searle. "We know the people, the mar- ket, the governments, labor and transportation systems." Mr. Searle, who became Fed- eral's executive vice president six years ago when the firm merged with his own Searlc Grain, finds his new task "fas- cinating." After a lifetime career ir grain, he said, "I am at how adaptable one casi be to change." Mr. Searle said Federal1 managers are "pretty good" a taking two or more enterprises combining them efficiently am achieving some economies in the process. Your thinking determines your experience.

NOW ALL TV SPORTS EVENTS TAKE ON AN EXCITING NEW DIMENSION... BONN (Reuter) West Ger- many's olive-branch "ostpoli- tik" of detente with Eastern Europe is stretching across the Urals and into China, with dip- lomatic relations between Bonn and .Peking posibly only a matter of weeks away. Foreign Minister Walter Scheel has said it is possible he could be in Peking next month to wind up Ihe negotiations about these ties. From the West German point of view, many benefits will ac- crue from an exchange of am- bassadors between the two far apart ideo- logically as they are geographi- cally, yet both emerging as po litical gianls. Trade between the two ran to million in 1971, below the level of the two previous years but still high enough to keep West Germany as China's sec end largest trade spite the fact that they are op- erating without a formal tradi agreement. China itself is showing in creasing interest in Europi both for economic and politiea reasons. The powerful ecr> nomic posilion of West Gcr many within the Europea: Common Market probably is an important factor in the thinking ol the Chinese leaders, who are apparently as eager as Bonn to settle the question of recogni- tion quickly. Then there is the question ol international status. SOME SUSPICIOUS West Germany emerged after the Second World War from the ruins of a divided country, branded as the aggressor and viewed with suspicion in its in- fancy even by its new allies hi the West. The success of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's policy ol Western integration and the re- sults of Chancellor Willy Brandt's ostpolitik made it in- evitable that sooner or later Bonn would turn toward the third potential super-power For a long time the way was by anti-Peking jolicy of the United Stales and hen by Bonn's own delicate ne- gotiations with Moscow, to im- irove relations. Tlie way has been cleared by 'resident Nixon's visit to China md the admission of China to he United Nations, on the. one land, and the ratification of Bonn's treaties wilh Moscow Warsaw on the other.

The five-country exercise has been billed as one of the big- gest and probably most real- istic ever staged by forces of the Warsaw pact. Western diplomats see Hie manoeuvres as timed to flex Communist muscles before East-West talks begin this fall on preparing a European se- curity conference. Soviet, Czechoslovak, East German, Hungarian and Polish units are taking part in the games after a heavy publicity build-up by Communist mass media. Romania and Bulgaria arc represented by observe.- mis- sions, but have also sent their defence ministers. The manoeuvres arc expect- ed to involve more than 000 men. There was no official explan- ation for the absence of Ro- manian and Bulgarian troops. Romania has refused lo allow joint manoeuwcs on its terri- tory, and sent a 300-man stall contingent to the last Warsaw pact exercise in East Germany in 1970. VANCOUVER Derril Warren, leader of British Col- umbia's Progressive Conserva- tives, said today he wants to continue as party leader and work toward a political re-align- meut in the province to bring together: the free enterprise vote behind one party. "I juft don't tliink this prov- nce can afford four political parties and in any way hope to maximize the expression of ma- jority opinion or near-majority spinioa to parties at the he told a news conference. I think indeed three parties is probably too many, but cer- tinaly Dr. Warren called the news conference to outline his per- sonal plans and those of his party following the Aug. 30 pro- vincial election in which the New Democrats toppled Pre- mier W. A. C. Bennett's Social Credit government. Mr. Wrf.-ren was defeated per- sonally in his riding of North Vu-ncouvre Seymour and the Tories won only two seats in the 55-membcr legislature. WILL LEAVE LAW Mr. Warren said he will re- sign from his Vancouver law partnership and lie full-lime leader of the party in B.C. start- ing Oct. 1, subject to approval by the board of officers which meets Friday and to the consti- tutional requirements providing for a leadership change if the party so decides. He said he will go to Victoria for the next session1 of the leg- islature, taking in proceedings from the visitors' gallery. Mr Warren said the Conserv- atives had the largest increase force. I think there will still be some squirming, but I think, in elfect it is over."

Find defect in Cadillacs DETROIT (AP) United States ou-ncrs of nearly 1972 Cadillacs were asked this week to return the cars to deal- ers for an inspection designed to spot about long rear- axle shafts.
