Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta IOANNIDES Ailing Albertan gets -medicine NICOSIA (CP) Medicines have been sent to an ailing Canadian visitor caught behind the lines of an invasion Turkish army in Cyprus, an official of the International Red Cross said Friday. The official said he has not yet received confirma- tion that the medicines, sent Thursday, had reach- ed Nicolas loannides of Ed- monton, trapped with his wife and four children in the northeast panhandle of Cyprus. Meanwhile, a Canadian diplomat temporarily bas- ed in Nicosia was putting pressure on the Turkish- Cypriot administration here in an attempt to get the loannides family through the Turkish lines. The Canadian government, which has no permanent diplomatic mis- sion in Cyprus, made representations to Turkey on the loannides affair through its embassies in Ankara and Tel Aviv. A group of British citizens came through the Turkish lines this week, causing surprise among observers here as to why the Turkish military au- thorities turned back United Nations and Red Cross attempts to bring out loannides, who is reported suffering from a brain tumor, and his family. Maj Bob Lockhart, Canadian information of- ficer, was one of a special group of officials per- mitted to visit the Rizokar- paso area where the loan- nides are staying. "Mrs. loannides approached me waving her Canadian Lockhart said. "She said her husband was ill and almost out of medicine. Also that their mortgage was overdue, insurance overdue, and their airlines tickets from Athens to Canada due to expire." Turner finds no weakne Saturday, September E LETHBRIDGE HERALD-15 full-employment goal Olympic coins production ahead OTTAWA (CP) Produc- ion of the second series of Olympic coins will continue despite an anomaly in one of the coins. Postmaster- general Bryce Mackasey aid Friday. The minister explained that depiction of the Olympic sym- wl on one coin in the series earlier this week aried slightly from that of- icially approved by the inter- ational Olympic Committee. The two bottom rings in the ymboJ's five-ring series are interlocked differently than in he official symbol which all five rings linked in in oveTHinder pattern. "However, there have been rany variances in the manner in which the Olympic rings ave been illustrated for pre- ious said Mr. tlackasey. "Consequently we will con- jjnoe to produce the entire series II coins as released on September 16." Coin illustrations are not in- ended to be exact replicas of ancient Olympic symbols but "to evoke and convey the spirit and heritage" of the ames, he said. PARIS (CP) Finance Minister John Turner of Canada has completed a tour of three European capitals, saying he has found no weakening in the West's com- mitment to the goal of full employment despite the need to curb rampant international inflation. Turner also told a news con- ference here at the close of his tour, which took in Britain and West Germany as well as France, that he feels certain Prime Minister Trudeau will receive an extremely warm reception when he visits the French capital on a European trip in late October. Canada-France relations are better than they have been for some years, the finance minister added. Despite a growing consen- sus among European economists that relatively high levels of unemployment may have to be sustained for several years in order, to curb inflation, Turner said he found no evidence this is gaining favor with government ministers. "Certainly the aim of the government of Canada is to maintain the highest possible level of said Turner, "and I doubt whether any government in the modern world could sustain a policy of maintaining massive unemployment to force down demand and prices." In Paris, Turner had what he described as a "full, frank and confidential afternoon meeting" with French Finance Minister Jean-Pierre Fourcade. As in London and Bonn, Turner stressed that the pur- pose of his three-day trip had been to gain a sense of how Europe is approaching the problems of inflation and payments imbalances before bringing down his own budget, probably in November. He said he found a new spirit of willingness to co- operate in the co-ordination of domestic economic policies and a determination to avoid unilateral, draconian deflationary measures which would have a destructive effect on the world economy. In all three capitals, Turner stressed Canada's desire to see a strengthening of such traditional forums for promoting monetary and trade relations as the Inter- national Monetary Fund (IMF) and the General Agre- ment on Tariffs and Trade He said he was also reassured by European ministers concerning the basic health of the banks in- volved in the Eurocurrency market. That market, consisting of deposits of domestic curren- cies with banks in other mainly in Western Europe, has come under strain recently because huge sums of Arab oil revenues have found their way there.
