Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, September LETHBRIDgE ATA paints grim picture of military, price issues OTTAWA (CP) The Atlantic Treaty Association took a gloomy view of the world's political and economic problems Friday and issued an appeal for unity among North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries. The association concluded a live-day conference here with a 25-point resolution painting a grim picture of growing Soviet military strength and worsening international economic problems. The 16-member group, com- posed of non-government agencies from the NATO countries, said NATO must be stronger than ever before if it is to meet such threats. The resolution said unity among NATO allies, including Greece and Turkey, and a con- tinued strong military posture in Europe are essential if there is to be a lessening of world tensions. A big North American mili- tary force in Europe is "in- dispensable" because of in- creasing Soviet-backed power there, the association said. The group also called for an early resumption of Cyprus peace talks "in the name of humanity." A Cyprus settle- ment will lead to restoration of normal diplomatic relations between Greece and Turkey and end the suffering of refugees, hostages and prisoners. The resolution said Soviet military power, both on land in Europe and at sea, is grow- ing rapidly despite talk of detente. At the same time there are pressures within some NATO countries for cut- backs. The action of Arab and other oil-producing states in forcing up petroleum prices has generated severe economic problems within NATO countries, the group said in a call for unified action to deal with the oil producers. As the conference ended, ATA chairman Eugene V. Rostow of the United States said the association must overcome a general lack of public support for NATO.

LETHBRIOGE Phone 328-7761 "Decide what you want We can help you." seems to be running against our he said. "Our political leaders seem to be losing their self-confidence." Professor Rostow, a Yale University law teacher and former U.S. under-secretary of state for political affairs, said many citizens of NATO countries ignore the "appall- ing realities" of Soviet military power and worldwide economic disruption. The association pleged its support to the principle of de- tente in Europe but warned that the continuing build-up of Soviet military strength is working against this goal. The association supported the aim of the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks and of ef- torts towards mutual and balanced force reduction. But it added a warning that such talks could fail if NATO countries unilaterally reduces its forces in Europe. NATO cannot bargain for mutual force reductions if member countries weaken the bargaining position with un- ilateral cuts, the association said. The resolution also said NATO must make new efforts to counter rapidly growing So- viet naval strength. In par- ticular, joint NATO action is needed to protect oil rigs and pipelines in the North Sea and elsewhere. NATO members must also place stronger emphasis on standardizing their military equipment, the resolution said. Even if these measures are taken any easing of East-West tension can still only begin in earnest with the restoration of human rights in Communist countries of Eastern Europe and the removal of barriers between East and West Europe. On economic matters, the association said NATO countries face unprecedented problems of inflation, soaring raw material prices, balance of payments deficits and of pressure to spend heavily to assure new energy sources. Elimination of trustees advocated VICTORIA (CP) Elimination of school board trustees from community college councils has been recommended by the provin- cial government's community college task force. The task force's final report, containing 110 recommendations, was released by Education Minister Eileen Dailly. The report recommends that community colleges be governed by a 15-member board. 10 members appointed by the provincial government and five elected by college teachers, students and sup- port staff. School trustees, who now make up about half of college councils, would no longer be members, according to the report. School board represen- tatives would sit on nominating committees that would help choose five of the government appointees. Mrs. Dailly said she wouldn't comment on all the report, but said the proposed composition of (he board "seems to be a good struc- ture." The 14-meniber task force, appointed Jast November, recommends that four new community colleges be open- ed in the province one of them in the East Kootenays. serving towns iike Kimberley and Hevelsloke Paul Hellyer turns writer OTTAWA
