Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE HERALD Wednesday, September 16, 1970 Unemployment Insurance Policy Paper Rapped OTl'AWA (CP> ISO Broau n o n I (NDP-Oshiiwa-Wliilby charged Tuesday fhnt the ernment's policy paper on nil employment insurance carries a suggestion that unemploymen in Canada is not serious until i: Mercury Found hi Seals SEATTLE (AP> Mercury has been found in three, fur seals living in cold, remote waters off Alaska, the federal bureau of commercial fisheries reported here. The agency said it does not know where the mercury came from. Fur seals migrate over large areas to the Pacific, but return to cold northern waters to breed. They eat fish and shell- fish, but the bureau says re- cent examinations of fish and shellfish in the area show mer- cury content below gov- ernment-set tolerance levels. reaches the level of four cent of the labor force. Labor Minister Bryce Macka- scy denied the charge, and in turn accused Mr. Broadbent of introducing arguments that have "nothing to do" with the paper, now under study by the Commons labor committee. The lengthy, spirited ex- change between Mr. Broadbent and the labor minister con- cerned a proposal in the paper whereby the government would assume the cost of the insur- ance program once unemploy- ment hits four per cent. The government in this pro- posal suggests that unemploy- nent beneath the four-per-cent evel is not serious, said Mr. Broadbent. Mr. Mackasey asked the NDP member where he would set the evel. At two per cent, Mr. Broadbent replied. "Why do you assume that un- employment is not serious at per Mr. Mackasey said Hie cost of ment was at what point should government intervention on the formula proposed by Mr. Broad- bent would be astronomical. The government policy paper did not judge what an accept- able rate of unemployment would be. The question for judg- the government assume respon- sibility for funding unemploy- ment insurance. "We have to be realistic as to what the cost will be against general the minister said. Under tiie government plan, unemployment benefits where joblessness is less than four per cent would bo paid from em- ployee and employer contribu- tions, as they generally are at present. Costs over four per cent would be borne by the gov- ernment. Apollo 14 Crew Will Seek Deeper Moon Rock Samples hat the labor minister etorted. 'ONSTANT FACTORS Mr. Broadbent replied that his uggestion was based on an esti- nate of the number unemploy- ment at any given time through onstant factors such as labor lobility. WASHINGTON (AP) Apollo 14 astronauts visiting the moon next February have been asked to bring back rocks from deep below the surface. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said here the Fra Mauro formation, where astronauts Alan B. Shep- ard and Edgar D. Mitchell are to land, is a blanket of debris that may have come from as deep as 100 miles below the original lunar crust when Mare Sea of Rains- was created in that area. The Imbrium basin, more than 700 miles across, is the largest recognizable impact structure on the moon. Lunar scientists believe smaller moon or a large meteo- rite slammed into the region four to five billion years ago, and the tremendous impact scopped out a vast amount of material. The astronauts are to land at a hilly upland region 50 miles north of the 58-mile-wide crater Fra Mauro, named for a 15th- century Italian monk who mapped the Mediterranean world in 1457 with surprising ac- curacy. Near the landing point is a cavity almost feet across and 150 feet deep, unofficially known as Cone crater, where a relatively recent meteorite strike apparently has cut through younger rubble to ex- pose the ancient blanket of ejected material. The astronauts will look down inside the Ccne crater, take photographs, and ship off sam- ples of the ancient boulders. "Laboratory dating of the re- turned samples should show when the Inibrium basin was formed and establish the age and physical and chemical na- ture of pre-mare material from deep in the lunar NASA said. Norwegian Named Neiv UN President UNITED NATIONS Edvard Hambro of (AP) Norway, who will become president of the 25th session of tire United Nations General Assembly, is a second-generation diplomat whose experience goes back to the League of Nations. Hambro is unopposed in to- day's election. When he takes the chair he will be following in the footsteps of his father, the late Carl Hambro, who was the last president of the league's as- sembly, 193946. The younger Hambro, 59, was a member of the Norwegian del- egation along with his father at the San Francisco conference which drafted the UN charter in 1945. He now is Norway's per- manent representative at UN headquarters. He is an experienced parlia- mentarian known for his firm- ness in handling knotty situa- tions. He also is known as a stickler for holding to a sched- ule. For this reason, UN diplomats expect him to try to get plenary meetings started on time- something rarely done by his predecessors. One task will be to preside the commemorative seg- ment of the session, Oct. 14-24, when 60 to 70 heads of govern- then he has spent more than half his life away from his own country. Although most of his adult life has been in diplomacy, he also has served in the Norwegian parliament and has held teach- ing posts in such widely scat- tered institutions as Cambridge University in England and the University of California at Berkeley. At one time he was acting chief of the UN legal section. Later he was administrative head of the International Court of Justice in The Hague for seven years. He is author of a series, The Case Law of the In- ternational Court, and is con- stantly he is not reading. He reads avidly in Nor- wegian, French, German and English, both the classics and modern literature.

Even on such perenni- als as the Middle East he finds reason for hope. "If you don't feel he once said, "it's impossible to do any work in the international field." Hambro got his first taste of international affairs as a 22- y.ear-old law student when he received a fellowship for study at the League of Nations.

LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC STOCKYARDS Featuring 250 YEARLING STEERS AND SPAYED HEIFERS From the Knight Ranch, Raymond Plus Good Run Of Stacker And Feeder Cattle Awaits Word On Support MONTREAL (CP) Mayor Jean Drapeau said Tuesday he expects an announcement from the Quebec government withir, "a few days" concerning contin- ued financial support for the city's Man and His World exhi- bition.

Claude Ryan, publisher of Montreal Le Devoir and an ad- vocate of Quebec's remaining within a modernized Confedera- tion, undertook to explain the phenomenon of separatism to U.S. viewers. Asked how the Parti Quebe- cois is treated by the news media, Mr. Ryan said it "re- ceived more publicity than its actual public support would seem to justify." However, he added that it was the duly of the press to view the PQ in "terms of its potential impact." SALE CONDUCTED BY C. E. FRENCH LIVESTOCK LTD.
