Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ------------------_ Thursday, Scplombor 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 EXPELLED Dr. Hubert Kitchen says his expulsion from the Newfoumlalnd Pro- gressive Conservative party was on a "trumped-up" charge that hid the real rea- son. Dr. Kitehen, former pres- ident of the party, said the fears of the "old guard" that forces were gaining too much power led to PC leader Frank Moores to engineer his expul- sion.

Prime Minister Trudeau is ex peeled to name Privy Counci President Donald Macdonald to the job. The new. minister will Haw his hands full with a multiludi of loose ends and major policy decisions left dangling by the 1968-69 defence review that led to a major switch in govern ment defence policy and result ing manpower reductions. There is a white paper on de fence, which would be the fourth major pronouncement on the subject since April, 1969. One of the new minister's firs tasks probably will b.e to deter mine whether it's useful or nee essary to have a white paper a this stage. He will be taking over a de partment severely hit by gov ernment-imposed spending re straints. BUDGET FROZEN The departmental budget has been frozsn at its cm-rent leve of until the 1973-7 fiscal year. The freeze results in a serious financial bind, since the cost o inflation has to be absorber within the budget. Most other departments had their budgets frozen for only one year undei the government's anti-inflation program. To save money, the defence department has decreed a cut in armed forces strength and reduced its civilian arm. It has prematurely reliret some equipment expensive to maintain, including the aircraft carrier Bonaventure, and post poned decisions on purchase of n.ew weaponry. It has also closed a number of domestic bases and depots, de spite arguments that the rev, million dollars saved are hardly worth it in over-all economic number of people thrown out of work in difference parts of the country. An estimated a year will be saved on the gov- IKE KNOW- IT-ILL, TELL- NOW ON SALE WHEREVER PAPERBACKS ARE SOLD PAPERBACK LIBRARY ernment's decision to cui the Canadian military contribution lo NATO, though this was pri- marily a political decision rather than an economic one. Beyond the decision to bring home half the troops from Ger- many, and to relinquish Can- ada's nuclear role in NATO, lit- tle has been decided about the shape of Canada's future mili- tary presence in Europe. The government has said that Canada eventually will have a lightly-armed, airmobile combat force in Germany, plus an air element designed for ground support or reconnaissance work. This compares with the mecha- nized brigade group and nu- clear-strike air division main- tained until now. It is not clear when the air- mobile force will come into ex- istence. Last year's announce- ment said it would be after 1972. It is also unclear whether the combat force will have its own Canadian air transport or whether this will be provided by NATO. Although there have been in- dications the Canadian troops may retajn their Centurion tanks well after 1972, there still has been no decision whether to replace the fleet of Argus anti- submarine patrol planes operat- ing off Canada's East and West coasts. Also undecided is whether Canada will join the U.S. in an expensive new bomber defence program based on airborne warning and control. This pro- gram suggested for inaugura- tion in the mid-1970s, could cost billion or more.

The bill, currently being con sidercd by the Commons agri culture committee as a result o government pressure to pass i before the current session end in October, would set up a na tt i o n a 1 marketing agricultur council and national rnarketin agencies for various commod: ties. Peter Friesen of Abbotsford B.C., president of the council told the committee that produ cers from each province shouli be represented on agencies which would be set up under the bill, a-nd that the committee should propose an amendmen to ensure this. The current bill makes n< such guarantee, stating ml; that agency members will be appointed by the federal govern ment. The council's brief also pro posed the following: producer's and junioi marketing boards be assured a the right to appeal decisions o: the national agency. no agency should be established for marketing o] particular commodity groups unless the recognized nationa' organization of that group's producers officially applies for such an agency. the government be re- quired to consult an agency be- fore altering import regulations on the commodity concerned.

Castro: Raid Crushed MIAMI (AP) Fidel Castro's Cuban government today claimed it has crushed a nine- man raiding party launched from the United Slates, captur- ing eight of the invaders and killing one. In broadcasls monitored in Miami, the Cuban radio said three of Castro's troops were killed in a series of skirmishes along the island nation's north- ern coast Sept. 14-20. A communique described the raiders as "mercenaries" and said they had been trained for five months in Florida "with frequent contacts with agents of the United States government." A spokesman for the Alpha 66 Cuban exile group in Miami said the men belonged to the or- ganization but that the Cuban radio report of their movements conflicted with the invaders' plans. He said the organization GREGORY CLARK "CANADA'S ONLY LIVING LEPRECHAUN" of Canadians feel a personal bond with Gregory Clark.

It doesn't make sense to put anti-freeze into your radiator if a tiny unnoticed leak in your cooling system lets it all run out. That may not be too serious back East, where real winters just don't happen. But it can be disastrous out here, so we've devel- oped a new "Prestone" Anti-Freeze formula that will protect your car under the severest conditions. And it won't run out on you at sub-zero temperatures. First, "Prestone" Anti-Freeze can actually protect your car down to below zero. Secondly, if a minor leak develops in your cooling system, the new "Prestone" anti-leak formula will seal it completely, in seconds. And finally, even if your car is old, don't worry about additional rust and cor- rosion building up in your cooling system because it simply can't happen. In fact, the new "Prestone" anti-leak, anti-rust, anti- corrosion formula is so effective, we put the Union Carbide guarantee right on the can. This winter, ask for real "Prestone" Anti-Leak Anti-Freeze, instead of some imi- tation. Or get a can and put it in yourself. We won't run out on you when it's forty below.
