Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 Trie IETHBRIDGE HERAIO Joiurdny, 55, !971 Amchitka nuclear blast opposed by students By GINNY GALT DOUGLAS, B.C. (CP) More lhan ban-the-bomb students, out to stop the pro- posed Amehilka blast, blocked Cannda-U.S. border crossings at three locations Friday and snarled traffic at several other points. The demonstrations ogainst the planned US. test of a five megaton underground nuclear device in the Aleutian Islands was described as "peaceful" by organizers and police. Steve Garrod, president of the University of British Columbia Students' Council which organ- ized the demonstration, said it was a good protest and he hoped it was only a beginning of a series. Other students were planning to bloci a tunnel today between Windsor, Ont. and Detroit in an- other protest. RCKP Inspector James Hid- dell of the Surrey detachment said everything was "peaceful. We couldn't aslc for better con- duct if they were a bunch o! Sunday school people at a picnic. "Other than the fact they broke the law by blocking (lie bo'-dcv. I'm quite pleased wilh the conduct of the demonstra- tors. They even took it upon themselves to pick up their own litter." Insp. Riddcll was at the Inter- national Peace ArcJi linking Douglas and Elaine, Wash., 30 miles southeast of Vancouver. He said traffic tie-ups caused by the blockade were not seri- ous because most people had probably heard of the demon- s t r a t'i o n plans and avoided crossing the border. RCMP STANDS BY About 50 HCMP officers were standing by at the peace arch, which handles Ihc bulk of traffic between British Columbia and Washington state. Insp. Riddell said the RCMP had riot sticks and helmets ready but indicated that they were afraid wholesale arrest tor blocking the roads might have caused trouble with the crowds. chef NOW at the town NOW LICENSED Our Delightful SMORGASBORD AVAILABLE ON WEDNESDAY EVENING lo p.m. SATURDAY EVENING to p.m. Adulli 2.25 Children Undir 12 1.50 Town Chef Profesiional Bldg.

Fetu 'barns' on iveUare says Munro TORONTO (CP) Tliere are very few "bums on Health Minister John Mimro told textile workers here. He said he is disturbed by an apparently-spreading mood ol hostility toward welfare recipt eats. Despite "shouts about 'bums on welfare' or 'let the lazy blan- kety blanks on relief find work or only 13 per cent of welfare recipients are employa- ble, he said. The other B7 per cent were permanently disabled, mothers with families, elderly or tempo- rarily disabled. "The employables on welfare by and large go on relief be- cause they had a job and lost it through little or no fault of their omi. They remain on welfare because there are no jobs avail- able for which they are trained. They get off welfare as soon as they can find such a job. It is as simple as that and statistics bear this out." The minister also noted that "of the unemployed population under 25 only 10 per cent are on welfare."

Friday, picket lines from two long- standing separate local labor disputes marched around the premises when the princess and Lord Snowdon made an Infor- mal tour of the structure.

And Nixon, answering fjueo tions at a meeting of the Detroit Economic Club Thursday night, said the additional 10-per-cent duty he imposed oa imports Aug. 15 will not be removed until there is action on the prob- lem of international exch rates. Employing his toughest lan- guage yet, he said the U.S. will ncl be satisfied until its manu- facturers got a bellcr deal in foreign markets through fair rates of exchange and removal of trade impediments. Nixon said the U.S. is going to be strong and firm at next week's meeting of the IMF, but is not going to be belligerent and declare a trade war. The United States also took a tough stance in London last week when the finance minis- ters of the Group of 10 dis- cussed currency revaluations in the wake of Nixon's dramatic moves lo protect the dollar. The Group of 10 consists of Canada, the United States, Brit- ain, Japan, West Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden and Belgium.
