2 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HCRAID Thursday, 33, 1971 Government staying out of auto firm's problem OTTAWA (CP) Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pcpin, who raised opposition fire in [ho Commons Wednesday for not reporting to Parliament on his talks with General Motors exec- utives, said outside the chamber the government "has no inten- tion of telling General Motors what to do John Mintline, GM vice-presi- dent in charge of finance, and John Barbeau, executive vice- president, met Mr. Pepin early Wednesday to discuss GM pro- duction reductions that will af- fect about employees in tivc Canadian plants. Mi, Pepin, who evaded re- pcrlsrs after the morning meet- ing, told an afternoon news con- ference that GM is a U S.-owned company with all its decisions made in the U.S. "They decide there where to put plants and what styles they will produce." Although the two executives talked to Mr. Pepin about future company plans, he said he was not at liberty to say what those plans were. The government will not interfere with company operations. Big revenue lost by newspapers By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) pub- lishers may have lost more than million in revenue in four- day newspaper publishing freeze over a wage dispute that halted the turnout of some 80 million copies of national and London dailies. Settlement was reached Wednesday night. As the first editions of the London papa's came back on the streets today, eager readers rushed to grab every copy available. The Beaverbrook Evening Standard heralded the end of the dispute with a "Good Morning" headline and a break- fast-scene cartoon in which mother tells children: "Don't be frightened children, it's only your daddy without his paper." The dispute, vrhich disrupted some production last week, ex- ploded into a full publishing freeze last Sunday BS one union demanded readjustment of a pay increase so that its high position in the pay scale could be maintained against lower- paid workers. Publishers at first resisted this demand, ordering union workers out of their jobs and halting publication. But the in- tervention of Vic Feather, head of the nine-million-member Trades Union Congress, finally won a compromise late Wednes- day night. Under the settlement, manual workers can choose either a straight five-per-cent wage in- ciease for the 15-month period ending Sept. 30, 1972, or a flat rate increase of JE1.12V4 a week. Professor committed for trial EDMONTON (CP) Keith Latta, 43, a law professor at Queen's University, Kingston, Ont., was committed to stand trial' for non-capital murder in the death of Bob Neville, a travel agent. Following a 2K-day prelimi- nary hearing at which publica- tion o[ evidence was banned, tlie judge said Latta will stand trial at the next sitting of the Alberta Supreme Court, prob- ably next spring. Mr. Neville was found shot to death in his office last June 13. Bail for Latta was discon- tinued and he's in custody. However, his lawyer said he may apply for bail within the next few days. Latta was re- leased on bail before the preliminary hearing. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Bldg. Mi PHONE 328-7684-V Government departments get funds EDMONTON (CP) Funds to assure the operation of three new government departments until they are formally ap- proved by the legislature were provided yesterday. Lt.-Gov. J. W. Grant Mac- Ewan signed special warrants to provide each to the departments of federal and in- tergovernmental affairs, ad- vanced education, and tele- phones. The new portfolios were cre- ated by Premier Peter Loug- heed whose Progressive Con- servatives ousted tlie Social Credit government Aug. 30. In (he Commons, opposition members jumped on Prime Minister Trudeau when he said there was no parliamentary rule requiring the industry minister to report on his talks with Lhe GM vice-presidents. New Democrat Leader David Lewis said Mr. Trudeau was treating the Commons with con- tempt by falling back on a tech- nicality. A motion by New Democrat Edward Broadbent (Oshawa- Whitby) that debate on grain legislation be adjourned so Mr, Pepin could be called in to re- port on his morning talks with GM was defeated 151-to-27. Lib- erals and Conservatives voted solidly against the New Demo- crats and Social Credit mem- bers. Former rail manager dies EDMONTON (CP) Funer- al services will be held Friday for John F.

British troops on duty BELFAST (AP) British troops took over guard dirty at key police stations in Northern Ireland today in a switch of pol- icy dictated by hit-aiid-run raid- ers of the Irish Republican Army. The soldiers moved in only a week 'after handing over sentry duties to the Royal Ulster Con- stabulary, the police force that supports the troops in battling the IRA's guerrilla campaign. Since then, several police posts have come under attack, including one in central Belfast that was raked by machine-gun fire and damaged by a gelignite bomb. Water resources study requested Liquor taboo ill schools RED DEER (CP1 Tlie public school board voted against permitting liquor at so- cial functions m its schools. Most of the delegations which addressed the board meeting were against liquor in the schools and the board said it would like to gather more opin- ions before making the ban a general policy. REGINA (CP) British Col- minister of lands and water resources says the great- est need facing Canada is bet- ter research and study of water resources and requirements. Ray Williston told a news conference at the end of the National Water Seminar that because of this, the matter of exporting water to the United States "is really not an issue." "The concentration of atten- tion ought to be towards Cana- dian needs now and in the fu- ture." The news conference, attend- ed by a number of government officials from the various prov- inces represented, was told that no definite recommendations came out of the seminar. However, three main areas of general agreement did emerge: The public wants say In planning water projects; There is a lack of co-ordin- ation among groups which plan, use or control water resources; There is a need for in- creasing research and planning to use water resources proper- ly. Members o[ the secretariat of the Canadian Council oE Re- sources Ministers which spon- sored the seminar, said those lopics were general and no agreement was reached on specifics. Ted Bowerman, minister of resources in Saskatche- wan, said it was hard to as- sess the value of the meetings in terms of tangible results. "It's very difficult at this point to get tlie kind of deci- sion you're looking he said of the meetings which were held behind closed doors. But he added that the semin- ar encouraged and improved relationships between the many groups who have or should have a voice in policy making. Tan- gible results would only come as the ideas shared had their effect on development policies. Edwin E. Ballantyne, deputy minister of the environment in Alberta, said research into Can- ada's water needs must be done from a point of view that was not just economic. Getty in Ottawa for discussions EDMONTON (CP) Don Getty Minister of Federal and Intergovernmental Affairs, left late Wednesday for a six-day visit to Ottawa and Montreal. A spokesman for his office said Mr. Getty will meet fed- eral and Quebec government officials during the trip which also will assess the value of the province's office in Ottawa. The deparlment of federal and intergovernmental affairs is newly-created by tlie Pro- gressive Conservative govern- ment of Alberta which defeated the Social Credit government in the Aug. 30 provincial election.

Opposition keeps up attack on government grain bill By TOM MITCHELL OTTAWA (CP) Liberal claims about participatory de- mocracy are just window-dress- ing, opposition MPs contended Wednesday, citing the govern- ment's attitude on grain legisla- tion as proof. "People just won't tolerate this type of Lome Nystrom Yorkton-Mel- ville) warned as the Commons continued debate on the govern- ment bill designed to provide in- come insurance for grain fann- ers. Richard R. Southam Qu'Appclle-Moose Mountain) said the government's position was outrageous in view of the avalanche of western mail pro- ofing the bill. The opposition contention was that the government was dan- gling a million carrot to force the House into accepting the prairie grain income stabili- zation bill, meanwhile refusing to make some SS7 million in overdue payments to farmers under grains legislation still on the books. The House's mood wasn't helped by an earlier tangle on widespread General Motors lay- offs and the fact Trade and In- dustry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin wasn't in the Commons to an- swer questions. AHSIiNCE CRITICIZED Aware Mr. Pi'pin had sched- uled a news conference, the op- position wanted him to make his statements in the Commons, not outside. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said his ab- sence amounted to contempt of Parliament. Mr. Pepin made his state- ments outside the House despite the opposition clamor and New Democrat Leader David Lewis said this was contempt of Par- liament. In the grains debate, Mr. Southam said the "dark shadow of the Assiniboia byelection" is affecting the government's atti- tude on the bill. A byelection is scheduled for the Saskatchewan riding Monday, Nov. 8. As a member of the Commons agriculture committee, he had received more than letters protesting the bill. But the gov- Boy, 9, falls from bridge EDMONTON (CP) A nine- year-old boy who fell from a six-storey railway bridge and landed on the ground was rest- ing in hospital today with a bruised leg and a lump on his head. Brain Bopchan of Edmonton was playing on the bridge with friends when he slipped and fell into a ravine. "It's a miracle he's still his mother Louise said in an interview. She had been called to the ravine by one of the boy's friends. "When I saw him lying there, I figured for sure he was gone." The area under the bridge is strewn with junk but Brian iell into a small clump of malted grass. His head hit just six in- dies from a log. eminent still clung to its "le- gally questionable position" of pushing the new bill while sus- pending payments required by the legislation still in force. The Temporary Wheat Re- serves Act of 1956, still in force, requires the government to make monthly payments to the wheat board for board-stored grain. These payments in turn were passed on to farmers, de- pending on how much grain they had delivered to board ele- vators. Tlie govemmer.t has made no payments under this act since August, 1970. It says the stabili- zation bill would supersede the reserves act and consequently is making na payments. U.S. papers never more profitable NEW YORK (AP) Trade journals report that U.S. news- papers have never been more profitable and the number of newspapers has remained con- stant since the Second World War, but the number of compeU ing dailies has decreased drasti- cally. Now there are only 15 cases of directly competing news- morning or evening, according to an unpub- lished Editor and Publisher sur- vey. Twelve involve evening newspapers. The competitive situations are New York, the Long Island sub- urb of New York, Chicago, Bos- ton, Philadelpliia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Frembnt-New- ark, Calii., Morristown, Terai., Champagne-Urbana, Til., Crow- ley, La., Fort Worth, Tex., San Antonio, Tex., and Mount Pleas- ant, Tex. The Editor and Publisher sur- vey lisLed 26 instances of com- petition between Sunday papers and 52 cities in which separate- morning and evening papers do battle for advertising dollars.
