Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Soplombor 31, New Role For Chambers That Of Planning Group VANCOUVER (CP) The re- tiring president of llie Canadian Chamber of Commerce says the national organization of busi- ness men must take a new look at its future. J. Allyu Taylor, who will make his report to Ihe cham- ber's annual convention today, said in an interview that Ihe or- ganization should become more of a planning group. He said much of tire cham- ber's time in the past had been In solving problems afler they occurred, rather than In plan- ning for the future. Mr. Taylor also said two of the country's major problems now are the continuing fight against inflation and the grow- ing expenditures at all levels ol government, Mr. Taylor president of Can- ada Trust-Huron and Erie of London, Ont., said the chamber and its members could be a powerful force In helping solve economic problems by proper planning. PANEL FLEA SIMILAR Mr. Taylor's call for change echoed similar pleas from three panel speakers at an opening seminar Sunday. William Moore, president of IBM Canada Ltd., Don Mills, Ont.; Elswood Bole, member of :he local boundaries commis- sion, Winnipeg, and Dr. Walter Johns, former president of the University of Alberta, all Quebec Rejects Lang uage Laic Bid SHERBROOKE, Que. (CP) The French-language Chamber of Commerce rejectei a resolution Saturday calling fo the adoption of legislation to make French the working Ian guage of Quebec. Donald N. Byers, newly-e lecled president of the Chambe and the first English-speaking president of the organization since 1933, said he doss think the time has come for Ian guage legislation. The bilingual Montreal lawyer said the language problem vril likely diminish over the nex decade "as communications anr travel have their effect." Iilr. Byers said, however he deplores the tendency of Eng- lish-speaking businessmen in Quebec not to work within French groups. "A good many of the senior businessmen in Montreal have come from outside the province and never have the need to use French when they come here. "Language should not be problem and need not be problem with some goodwill on both Bides." Convict Art Sells LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) An. estimated visitors purchased worth of paintings exhibited at the fed- eral penitentiary's ninth annual convict art show Sunday. Some works of the shown by 500 prison artists were bought. The money paid for a painting is credited to the pris- oner's account. HALE 307 ilh SI S. Mr. Byers said the Quebec government must give up some of plans if the province is to survive. agreed that business has to be- come more involved in the so- cial affairs of their communities and the country as a whole. Mr. Moore said business lias to lake advantage of new tech- nology lo provide more jobs at belter pay, but tins alone was not enough. "The challenge will be lo inle- grale into our perspective the broader outlook of a concerned citizen of the world but at the same lime (remain) sensi- tive to our responsibilities to our communities, our nation and the human family." He said businessmen would find it to their advantage to act voluntarily and to dedicate "significant part of our energy and resources to solving our more pressing social prob- lems.'' Dr. Johns agreed that the greatest challenge of the next 10 years would be in the field of mman so- cial and political. HAVE UNIQUE ROLE He said universities had a unique role to play in this field and the next decade should see .hem "attack many of the prob- ems wilh an increasing sense of urgency." 'Alberta Needs More Spending' BANFF, Alta. (CP) Albe ta's Social Credit governmen should be planning to increas spending this winter with th objective of reducing rolls, Opposition leader Pete Lougheed said Sunday. Mr. Lougheed said the gov ernment was talking of mor cutbacks instead of planning t expand projects to reduce im employment. And this, he adc ed, at a time when it was fac ing increased welfare spendin because of (lie lagging ecoi omic situation. The Progressive Conserve live leader made the state- ment after a weekend meeting with his nine fellow MLAs. He said the Conservativ caucus agreed that "positiv action which reduced unem ploymcnt is purely preferable to pouring an ever-increasini amount of public money into public a process Lougheed described simple but self-defeating. He said the caucus consider ed the "depressed" prospects of the province's economic pic ture for the next few months as the most urgent problem 'acing the government but. the Social Credit administration did not appear to appreciate he problem. "Unlike other provincial gov- ernments, the Social Credit ad- ministration has failed to ac- cept its clear responsibility to reduce the hardships in the un- employment which exists al reason for borrowing is a good reason for lending and help in our 92 years we've seen and solved just about any kind of money problem you can imagine.

Mr. Lougheed said the gov- ernment should be accelerat- ing such capital projects as lie i s h hatchery in Calgary, ju- nior colleges Ihroughout the province, the new Athabasca University planned for St. Al- bert near Edmonton, new de- velopments in provincial parks, and new remand centres in both Calgary and Edmonton. "Government money for these and similar projects will be spent in any event over the course of the next few years, but the impact will be much more effective this winter than later." Mr. Lougheed said It will be possible to balance, "in many cases, the reduction possible in welfare spending with the ac- celerated impact on incomes for the working people." The opposition leader said It was not a case of devising 'made work" projects but one of going ahead with useful and lasting public works that would create jobs for the unemploy- ed instead of forcing them to remain on social assistance rolls. BALLOON LEAVES N.Y. COW PASTURE Balloonisls Trying To Cross Atlantic Thai Officials Sliot To Death BANGKOK (AP) A provln- ial governor, his police chief and a Thai army Intelligence of- icer were shot to death Sunday terrorist ambush In Thai- and's northern province. The Prayad Samara- mitr of Chiengrai, police Col. ridet Pumipraprami and army ol. Chanmien he highest-ranking govern- ments officials killed thus far in Thailand's five-year-old insur- ency. EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) A huge orange balloon called The Free Life and her crew of Ihree were reporled off the coast of Sable Island east of Halifax today and "doing well." The radioed report said the crew of the balloon had just had lunch and their craft was drift- ing smoothly at feet. A system for hearing the air inside an outer section of the balloon which surrounds a hel- ium balloon has failed, the bal- loonists reported. This could make it difficult for them to keep altitude on cold nights when the helium contracts, but the balloonists were reporled op- timistic. The attempt at the first bal- loon crossing of the Atlantic began at p.m. Sunday. Making the flight to "some- where in France" are: Hon An- derson, 32, of Farnham, Eng- land an aeronautical engineer and amateur balloonist, his wife, television actress Pamela Brown; and Malcolm Brighton, amateur balloonist, who sees no reason why they shouldn't make the crossing. They ride in a 12-foot by five- foot glass fibre gondola swung beneath the 80-foot-high, hel- ium-filled balloon that is a bril- liant orange topped by yellow and white stripes. If successful, the flight will eclipse the present balloon dist- ance record of miles set by an eight-man German team in 1914. In 1968, two Canadians got 500 miles east of Nova Scotia, then ran out of wind. The present flight is expected to take from six to 16 days, de- pending upon the weather. Free Abortion Laws Sought By 200 Vancouver Liberals VANCOUVER (CP) Re- slriclive abortion laws will be dropped only "if public opinion moves lo lire stage where peo- ple believe that criminal sanc- tions should leave moral situa- tions for moral Justice Minister John Turner said Saturday. Mr. Turner was commenting on a resolution on abortion laws passed by 200 Vancouver-area Liberals at a policy meeting.

It claimed procedural delays under the current system re- quiring the approval of doctors' committees not only favor the financially well-off, but require abdominal operations to termi- nate one-third of the pregnan- cies. The justice minister also com- mented on another resolution calling for support of the Le 3ain drug commission's find- .ngs. PROVIDE TEST Marijuana users provide a 'delicate test of the use of criminal he said, noting that the Le Dain report ound the drug laws operate in such a way that "the harm caused by the law exceeds the larm they're supposed to pre- slnuld join with other nations in treaties providing for reciprocal security on the ground, stiffened extradition provisions to return hijackers to the original coun- try, and the possible forfeiture of landing rights to planes from nations which won't sign. Domestically, Mr. Turner said, Canada will make it a criminal offence to hijack planes or to carry a concealed weapon aboard an aircraft with- out the captain's permission. Banned Tory Says Charge Is Phony 'ent.' Mr. Turner said that more ban 90 per cent of those con- 'icled of marijuana or hashish lossession were not being sent o jail, but rather fined. "The law can respond to change and play a creative role n the evolution of our institu- ions and in response to new at- titudes and life he said. "Yesterday's law, if unres- lonsive to change, can become he instrument for tomorrow's repression." On the subject of aircraft hi- acking, Mr. Turner said armed fuards are not the solution. Rather, he said, Canada CORNER BROOK (CP) Dr. Hubert Kitchen says his ex pulsion from the Newfoundland Progressive Conservative parly was on a "trumped-up" charge that hid the real reason. Dr. Kitchen a former presi- dent of the party, said in an in- terview the fears of the "old guard" over the increasing power of the new forces led PC Leader Frank Moores to engi- near his expulsion Saturday. Party traditionalists wanted no part of the "new wave" PCs and further expulsicns were likely. Mr. Moores, who defeated Dr. Kitchen in a leadership conven- tion last May, said earlier the party executive voted unani mously to expel him. He said Dr. Kitchen held a meeting with Premier Joseph Smallwood without his consent. "Because of his subsequent, behavior we must conclude that Dr. Kitchen was being used as a tool of Mr. Smallwood to dis- C of C Winners Are Announced VANCOUVER (CP) The Chamber of Commerce Mon- ay announced the winners of s yearly awards for programs esigned to promote a better ublic understanding of Hie Chamber's work.

But Mayor Veiner claims he was fouled and has demanded a rematch. "That Sykes cut in front of me at the start and the finish. I've been told such tactics ere grounds enough for a foul."

A main reason for the limit is the possible drain with the election looming, that a no> holds-barred contest could pul on party resources. The candidates will be draw- ing on the same sources of sup- port as the party does, Davic Lewis, MP for York South and an expected candidate, said.

The party would provide to help delegates from poorer areas with travel expen- ses. Concern about funds for 1972 was expressed as the council meeting began Friday.
