Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September OMAR BRADLEY: THE SOLDIER'S SOLDIER Omar Nelson Bradley, the mild-mannered man who seemed more of a teacher than a soldier, ended his military careei as-the fourth, and last, officer to wear the five-star circlet of General of the At my. Bom in Missouri in 1893. he was graduated iiom West Point in 1915 and was a temporary major in World War I. The Second Wai brought Bradley not only fame and his general's sta'is. but recognition as a superb tactician and the lasting respect of his troops, who regaided him as 'one of us." in 1949. Bradley was sworn in as the first permanent chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after serving a yeai as Army Chief. In the rear is the first Mis Bradley. As Commandei of the 12th Army Group during and after the Normandy Invasion, Genei-.ii Bradley spent a good deal ot his time keeping Gen George Ration and Field Marshal Montgomery (lower left photo) from each other's throats. Bradley's troops were the first to cross the Rhine and make contact with the Soviet Army in Germany. When he retired in 1953, after chairing the NATO military committee, he became board chairman of the Bulova Watch Co. The second Mrs. Bradley appeared with the general in a 1970 press conference when he told of the Patton- Montgomery rivalry. Plan change in family allowances OTTAWA (CP) It has been 28 years since the family allowance made its first monthly appearance in millions of Canadian mail box- es. But never during that time has the system undergone as drastic an overhaul as the one now being considered in Parliament. Some observers say the pro- posals are a start at re-dis- tributing a portion of the wealth from rich families to the poor. Welfare Minister Marc La- londe has put forward a plan to increase the allowance to ;m average a month per child on Jan. 1. ,1974. The benefits would be taxable, meaning the lower the in- come, the higher the net take and vice versa, the net take and vice versa. The allowance now is a month for children under 10 years old. for 10-to 15-year- olds and for 16-and 17- yearolds. If Parliament approves, this system will disappear next month and will be replaced by a flat monthly payment for all eligible Children and youths until the 1974 plan takes effect. The interim pay- ment would not be taxable. Under the 1974 proposal, Ot- tawa would pay an average a child to each province, which would determine the amount of the allowance. The provinces would have to give a minimum a child to mothers but there would be no maximum. This would allow them to give the wealthy a low pay- ment and the poor a high payment. it is for these reasons that some government observers say the 1974 plan is the beginn- ing of a guaranteed family in- come. Initiated in 1945, family allowances were designed, at least partially, to stave off a possible post-war depression. The politicians knew people would spend the money, thus holding off an economic slump. It will cost the federal treas- ury an estimated billion. However, the government be- lieves it will recoup million in income taxes. It has been argued that the family allowance is an incen- tive to raise children. SpHCC await gov't word OTTAWA (CP) The cabinet is expected to have a recommendation soon on which two aero-space giants should enter the final competi- tion for a multi-million dollar contract to build a new long- range patrol aircraft (LRPA) lorlhe Canadian Forces. It is expected the govern- ment will make a decision on the recommendation by next month and move into Phase II of the development of an air- craft to replace the aging Argus patrol plane. A management group made up of armed forces and supply and services department offi- cials is preparing a report for the cabinet. The report will recommend which two of the four com- panies should receive further some gov- ernment financing. An official of one of the four companies estimated that the final contract could be worth close to billion. It is expected the new air- craft will be in service guarding Canadian sovereign- ty and doing anti-submarine duties in the Atlantic and Pacific in 1978. WILL REPLACE ARGUS Between 20 and 30 of the air- figure has not yet been replace the propeller-driven Argus craft. The four companies sub- mitting proposals to the government early this year are: Siddeley Aviation of Britain, whose submission is based on its Nimrod anti- submarine plane, an adapta- tion of the Comet jetliner. The Nimrod now is in service with the RAF. of the United States, submitting a proposal based on the use of its large three-engined DC-10. of the U.S. which proposes using its 707. Lockheed Aircraft of the U.S. whose proposal is based on use of the Orion, a turbo-prop based on the Lock- heed Electra. 400 of which now are in service with the U.S. forces. GOOD FOR INDUSTRY? An important question is "what's in it for Canadian in- Proposals of the four com- panies in this regard are being kept secret. But some hints are available. McDonnell-Douglas, parent of Douglas Aircraft of Canada, is reported to have in- dicated it could build more than one-half of its aircraft in Canada. Added to that the c( ipany says it could pour trillions into Canada in the way of new work on other new aircraft. .Just as components of DC- 10s and DC-9s now are being made in Canada, components lor upcoming military air- craft and civilian aircraft also can be done here. It says that a company with 90.000 employees can spend considerable amounts on new purchases in Canada to offset Canadian foreign spending arid that already Douglas Aircraft in the Toronto area is doing export business in the ordder of million a year. MENTIONS ITS RECORD Lockheed said it has spent an average of million a year for each of the last 20 years, providing employment for about 5.000 persons an- nually. Hawker Siddeley. outlining the various projects it has been involved in with Cana- dian companies, says its offer of the Nimrod includes a "large amount of work" to be done in Canada. Defence Minister James Richardson has said there must be major benefits for the West and has given more emphasis to the of a contract as large as this one. The offset proposals do not necessarily represent work in the aero-space industry. For instance, it is believed that some of the offset proposed by Hawker Siddeley involves shipyards ow.ic-d by its sub- sidiary in the Maritimes. Hear ings CALGARY (CP) A series of public hearings into factors affecting the environment of the Peace-Athabasca Delta in northern Alberta will begin later this month, the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority announced today. The hearings will involve the Alberta. Saskatchewan and federal governments, as Lake Athabasca's shorelines border on Alberta, Saskatchewan and the federal- ly administered Wood Buffalo National Park.
