Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Low tonight near 35. Highs Friday near 60. The Lcthbridcje Herald VOL. LXV No. 239 ALBERTA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTO THREE PAGES Work-permit idea draws criticism By TUB CANADIAN PRESS Prime Minister Trudepu drew sharp criticism from labor leaders Wednesday after he told a Toronto radio audience his government may require Canadians to ob- tain work permits if they want employment. Mr. Trudeau said the move may be necessary to stop foreigners entering the country and taking jobs illegally. He later told a news conference the work- permit system might be only a few years away. Social Credit Lender Real Caouette, campaigning in Grande Prairie, Alta., also made a blunt statement on the unemployment issue, telling another radio au- dience that "unemployment is here to stay and we have to live with that fact." The other two major party leaders spent much of their day taping television appearances, Conservative Loader Robert Slanfield in Toronto and New Dem- ocratic Leader David Lewis in Winnipeg. Mr. Stanfield went to an evening nominating meet- ing in Cobourg, Ont., where he gave a low-key address stressing the importance of Canadian unity and the need for Canadians to "wake up and face the future clear-eyed, realistically." Use propaganda Mr. Lewis told a news conference the federal gov- ernment is using information services paid for by the taxpayer to make itself look good. About the same time, in Ottawa, it was learned that the finance department has mailed businessmen copies of a speech given by Finance Minister John Turner at a Liberal meeting in Thunder Bay, Ont., Sept. 14. The speech attacked New Democratic taxation policy. Today, Mr. Trudeau takes a day off in Winnipeg before starting a western tour Friday. Mr. Stanfield visits Toronto and Oakville, Ont., while Mr. Lewis cam- paigns in Ottawa and Mr. Caouette is in Peace River, Alia. Mr. Trudeau said in Toronto that the cabinet has twee discussed the work-permit idea and the man- power department has made a study of it. Canadians and immigrants who enter legally would have little trouble getting the permits, he asserted. But he admitted that he is unsure whether most Canadians would welcome having to carry such pa- pers or lining up to get them. Not big issue The prime minister also asserted that unemploy- ment is not the big issue in the Oct. 3 election cam- paign that opposition-party leaders think it is. He said many Canadians agree with him that one reason for high unemployment figures is that many peo- ple prefer getting unemployment benefits while they look for jobs that are better than the ones available. Among labor leaders criticizing the prime minister was Dennis McDermott, Canadian director of the Uni- ted Auto Workers, who said the permits would re- quire massive bureaucracy and serve no good purpose. "They would run counter to our traditional free- doms and would be a first step toward a police state." Donald MacDonald, president of the Canadian La- bor Congress, called the concept "like killing a mos- quito with a sledge Major Conservative speeches came from Ontario Premier William Davis, who told Ottawa businessmen federal policy on foreign investment "falls well short of Canada's and former Liberal cabinet minis- ter Paul Hellyer, who called in Toronto for impeach- ment of the entire Tmdeau cabinet. Mr. Hellyer, Conservative candidate in Toronto Trinity, said the government has misled the country about the cost of unemployment insurance and the state of the insurance fund. New Democrat Leader Lewis also said in Winnipeg that If he were prime minister he would not impose wage controls in isolation from other controls. Because of propaganda and brainwashing Cana- dians erroneously believed union wage demands are re- sponsible for increases in the cost of living, he said. Any wage control policy would have to be part of an over-all incomes policy that also covered doc- tors, lawyers, businessmen and other groups. Warn each other AP-HEUTEIl Uganda and Tanzania have warned each other against tak- ing any new aggressive action that could blow up into a full- scale war between the two countries. The Sudan kept Lib- yan strongman Muaminar Kad- dafi from flying troops to help the Ugandans. President Idi Amin of Uganda said at a memorial service Wednesday for Ugan- dans killed after Sunday's in- vasion from Tanzania that he would order new bombing raids on Tanzania to head off another invasion. President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania warned that his forces would be taken off a de- fensive' footing if Uganda launches any new pre-emptive strikes against the Tanzanians. Strengthened Tarfzanian forces deployed along the northwestern frontier were un- der orders not to cross into Uganda. But Prime Minister Raslu'di Kawawa of Tanzania, during a tour of the border region, said they were prepared to fight back if attacked. "Our army is quite capable of guarding the he said. CLAIMS TROOPS SENT President Amin said Tan- zania had; sent troops to the Ugandan border. "We must stop them before they penetrate into he said. "And the only way to do it will be by striking at them before they enter the country." Speaking in Kampala, the Ugandan capital, Amin said he would "instruct the Uganda air force and the seaborne regi- ment to destroy Tanzanian camps where the enemy is planning to launch another in- vasion of Uganda." He said Sunday's invasion was the work of guerrilla sup- porters of former president Mil- ton Obote, based in Tanzania and "supported by Tanzanian, British anl Israeli forces." Amin ousted Obote in 1971. A dispateii from Nairobi said that Secretary-General Nzo Ekangaki of the Organization of African Unity called on Kenya to mediate the Uganda-Tan- zania dispute and head off a clash between their two armies. STREET FIGHTING Shooting broke out in Uie streets of Kampala today, re- ports reaching usually reliable soAirces in Nairobi, Kenya said.

And it was reported that Uganda's chief justice, Benedic- to Kiwanuka, was arrested at the High Court today. Eyewitnesses said they saw him being led away, hand- cuffed, by Ugandan military police. At Ottawa, External affairs officials said today there are no immediate plans to evacuate any of the approximately Canadians in Uganda.

By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor MOSCOW (CP) Three hockey players, pleading "we're not doing any good resigned from Team Canada today on the eve of the resumption of the Canada-Rus- sia series. There were reports that others might follow their example. Left wingers Vic Hadfield and Rick Martin and Jocelyn Guevremont complained to head coach Harry Sinden when their names were not included on the lineup for the first game of the four-game series. "Harry couldn't guarantee they'd play, so they made the decision to return said Alan Eagleson, director of Hockey Canada and executive director of the National League's players' association. Hadfield, who plays for New York Rangers, was a much-pe- nalized player in the recent two-game exhibition series fa Stockholm. Martin, speedy young 50-goaJ scorer with Buffalo Sabres last year, and Guevremont of Van- couver Canucks have seen little action against the Russians. NEEDS EXPERIENCE Sinden said earlier Martin was picked for his offensive ability but that greater defen- sive he said the young native of Verdun, Que. baaly come only with experience. "None of them was Eagleson said. "They came to me and asked me to arrange their tickets home. I have done that and they will fly out on the first flight tomorrow. "There are one or two others who say they are unhappy at not being played enough and they might ask to leave Eagleson said. He declined to name them. U.S. fires at wheat WASHINGTON (CP) Two United States senators have ac- cused the Canadian wheat board of instigating criticism of the recent U.S.-Soviet grain deal. Canadian officials say they don't know what the Americans are talking about. Senator William Saxbe, an Ohio Republican, fired the first volley at the wheat board Wednesday, saying in a state- ment that "this flap has pri- marily been brought about by representatives of Uie Canadian wheat board." Senator Hugh Scott of Penn- sylvania, Republican leader in the U.S. upper house, joined the fray later in the day, saying in a Senate speech: "The people vho started to criticize, the people furnishing the informa- tion to enable some people to allege that grain exporters got some unwarranted advantage, were themselves people asso- ciated wiHi the Canadian wheat board." One of these persons, he said, "had formerly heen associated with the U.S. department of ag- riculture." Asked for comment, officials in Ottawa and Winnipeg both had the same comment: They did not know what the U.S. leg- islators were talking about. KNOW NO LINK A spokesman for Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board, said in Ottawa there is no known connection between the U.S.-Soviet wheat sale and the Canadian wheat board. The wheat board's chief com- missioner, N. G. Vogel, said in Winnipeg he did not know the source of Scott's information and added that at no time dur- ing negotiations for the sale to the Soviet Union did the wheat board have any comment to make. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Bufz testified earlier before a House of Representatives com- mittee looking into the deal that economist John A. Schnitt- ker was a U.S. agriculture de- partment official who became a volley board consultant to the Canadian wheat board. Schnittker now heads his own consulting firm here. He was ill and unavailable for comment Wednesday. But an associate said Schnittker no longer has any connection with the wheat hoard. BUY DIRECT Under the U.S. system, onca the credit deal was signed ths Russians made direct pur- chases through trading com- panies. In most o her wheat-ex- porting countries there are bod- ies similar to the Canadian wheat board, a Crown corpo- ration formed in 1935 as tho general agency for all wheat, oats and barley sold com- mercially in other parts of Can- ada and abroad. First strike in 26 years hits plant SYDNEY, N.S. (CP) The biggest single industrial oper- ation in Nova sprawling Sydney steel mill- was being picketed today by steelworkers on their first gen- eral strike in 26 years.

Tale of horror in Uganda Sell extra gold to buy grain MOSCOW (Rcuter) Largo shipments of Soviet gold re- ported to have arrived in Zur- ich were assumed by foreign diplomals to be intended to help pay for grain purchases in the West. The Soviet Union has in tho past sold extra gold to pay for big grain imporls not foreseen in the economic plan.
