2 LETHBRIOQE HERALD -Tutwiay, Stptvmbtr 17, 1974 Ecevit sees hope in early election ANKARA (Reuter) Turkish Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit went through the final formalities today before tendering his resigna- tion after eight eventful months in office. The 49-year-old premier, a poet and former journalist, announced his resignation Frelimo chiefs take gov't posts LOURENCO MARQUES (Reuter) Frelimo leaders were surrounded by a tight se- curity net today as Portugal prepared to hand power to the nationalist organization after more than 400 years of colonial rule in Mozambique. The Frelimo leaders and t'-Jr aides arrived here Mon- day from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to take up posts in a transitional government, dominated by the liberation front, that will guide Mozam- bique to independence next June. The occasion marked a ma- jor milestone in Portugal's withdrawal from its African empire. For Frelimo it was the triumph culmination of a 10-year guerrilla war which officially ended earlier this month. The tight security designed to thwart any disturbance by white extremists. decision Monday, blaming his coalition partners for the collapse of the government. But Ecevit, the first left-of- centre politician to lead Turkey, may be out of office only for a few days. President Fahri Koroturk was expected to ask him to form another administration, possibly to take the country up to early elections. Faced with a challenge from seven rebel ministers and riding a wave of public popularity for his decisiveness in invading Cyprus, Ecevit told a conference Monday he would resign after consulting the hierarchy of his Republican Peoples Party today. He said early elections are the best solution to the political crises which have beset Turkey since last Oc- tober's inconclusive elections. His party topped the poll but needed the support of the Na- tional Salvation Party to form a coalition with a slender parliamentary majority. The government, deeply split since last May, finally tumbled after the seven Salvationist ministers public- ly opposed Ecevit's plans to visit Scandinavia this week. The rebellion appeared to have been prompted by Ecevit's refusal to nominate Deputy Premier Necmettin Erbakan as acting prime minister during his trip. He bluntly admitted his lack of confidence in Erbakan, the Salvationist leader, saying Monday that because of the Cyprus crisis he did not want to hand over the premier's job to him dur- ing his absence. Analysis Allies reluctantly accept Haig BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) The European members of the North Atlantic Alliance all agree that they want the United States to retain maximum visi- bility in its sharing in their defence. But the allies are less happy to get as their supreme allied commander a general with as much political visibility as Alexander Haig. Failing to get their message across to President Ford, the European members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization reluctantly agreed to Haig's ap- pointment to succeed Gen. Andrew Goodpaster. They were unwilling to risk further conflict within the alliance following the Greek-Turkish split over Cyprus and Greece's withdrawal from military participation in NATO. They hope that the Watergate dirt that splashed over Haig as former president Nixon's close adviser and White House chief of staff will somehow dust off when the general gets back into uniform. Haig's diplomatic tact might also help to ease the op- position if he maintains a low profile. The NATO allies are fed up with having the alliance used as a tool in U.S. politics. When former president Nixon insisted on visiting NATO headquarters on his way to Moscow last June, the Europeans were only too keenly aware that the trip was part of a vain effort to brighten his deteriorating image at home. When President Ford nominated Haig to succeed Goodpaster to get him away from the White House and at the same time repay him for his service to Nixon and the Republican party, the allies' feeling of being again was overwhelming. But Haig was accepted because more than anything the NATO members want the United States to keep its troops in Europe. They want President Ford to resist any congressional attempt to reduce the U.S. troops still stationed on this side of the Atlantic. They felt that to antagonize Ford might weaken his resistance to the pressure in Congress to bring the troops home. Informed sources in Canada, the other non-European member of the alliance, said their government raised no objections to Haig because it felt opposition should come from countries with more troops in Europe than Canada's 5.000-man force. The sources said in addition to the stigma of the Nix- on association, Haig was vulnerable because he has never commanded anything bigger than a brigade. But one Canadian source said his political ex- perience is a plus factor because dealing with so many countries requires considerable political skill.

Mr. Rockefeller, brother of U.S. vice-president designate Nelson Rockefeller, said the world faces the problems of inflation, the massive flow of funds to the oil exporting na- tions and the search for capital to develop vitally needed industrial projects. "Without being overly melo- dramatic, I would suggest that unless there is concerted teamwork by every nation to deal with these questions, there may be catastrophe for some to the final detriment of all." Mr. Rockefeller said Canada should welcome foreign banks which can help finance development of raw materials and energy sources. "A restrictive atmosphere which discourages the presence of foreign banks here or elsewhere can only jeopardize the ability to proceed confidently with urgently needed large-scale economic development pro- jects." Conversely, expansion abroad of Canadian banks is essential to their growth and profit potential, said Page Wadsworth, chairman and chief executive officer of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. The growing complexity and interdependence of major world trading nations requires a close knowledge and access which can only be gained by a continuing physical presence in major world trading and financial centres, he said. "Facilities for finding, at- tracting and employing capital must be ready and able to keep pace with our growing needs. At the same time. Canada is increasingly becoming an exporter of capital. "Canadian banks play an important role in mobilizing and channelling these vital two-way flows." A leading British banker told the conference, however, that expansion of major banks into international markets will soon start to slow down. Canadian delegation with non-citizens upsets China OTTAWA (CP) The Globe and Mail says a Cana- dian official delegation to China that contained only two Canadian citizens among its seven members has been told by the Chinese not to proceed with its visit. The newspaper says the delegation also includes three citizens of the United Kingdom, one citizen of the United States and an interpreter of unknown origin. They were to leave Canada last weekend, arrive in Hong Kong Monday and begin their two-week visit as guests of the Chinese government Sept. 18. However, the newspaper Deaths By THE CANADIAN PRESS Ian Mid- dleton. 35. a York University researcher, in a fall from a seventh-floor balcony at the university. says the delegation learned Friday it was not to proceed. The reason is that the Chinese are unhappy about the composition of the Canadian delegation, but official sources in Ottawa would not confirm this, the newspaper says. It added that the delegation, made up of six mining engineers and the interpreter, was to be on an exchange visit. Six Chinese mining engineers and an interpreter spent two weeks in Canada in mid-August, visiting open-pit coal mines in British Colum- bia. Alberta and Saskatchewan.
