Nixon tries warm up an chill By ROD CURIUE WASHINGTON (CP) President Nixon's long flight to Alaska for a brief courtesy visit with Japan's emperor seemed to underline recent warnings of some observers that relations between the two countries were nt their lowest since the Second World War. Nixon's eagerness to reverse this trend was seen in his willingness to go lo such length to pay tribute to a man v.'M lias no actual policy-making and no polilical authority in Japan. Still, Nixon is seen as politician enough to recog- nize that Ihc shy, retiring Emperor Hirohito is ap. parefitly widely respected by a majority of his people as a symbol of the feudal past Uiat the Japanese are bound to be impressed by Nixon's gesture of friendship. At this point, the U.S. needs all tlie good will it can generate in Japan. Nixon indicated further appreciation of this fact last week br asking Congress to ratify an historic treaty returning Okinawa lo Japan. At the time, he warned lhat if Japan and the U.S, grow apart the "fabric of peace" in Asia will be "incomparably more difficult" to hold together. Ties sorely tested Certainly U.S.-Japanese relations have been sorely tested of late. First came Nixon's sudden change in the U.S. pol- icy toivard China with tlie announcement he u'ould visit Peking. Tlie Tokyo government was furious that it was not Riven advance warning of the move, which shocked tlie Japanese population. Then came the U.S. 10-per-cent surcharge on im- ports and U.S. demands that Japan revalue the yen. The Nixon administration also demanded that Japan shoulder a greater share of maintaining American mili- tary forces in Japan. On the other side of the coin, Washington was an- noyed with the Japanese for refusing to co-operate in a scheme to limit textile exports to Hie U.S. and con- tinuing restrictions on U.S. imports and investment in Japan. By its very nature, tlie polite encounter between Nixon and the emperor did not permit substantive dis- cussion on these issues. Nixon had emphasized that U.S.-Japancse friend- ship i.s "indispensable" to peace in [he Pacific and certainly this outgoing demonstration of good manners and courtesy will not be. lost on tlie sensitive Japan- ese. Still, in tlie view of n-.any observers, the conflicts that beset Washington-Tokyo relations are real and painful in some areas and demonslrations of mu- tual admiration will not alone resolve That will lake hard bargaining. No wonder Canada mad WASHINGTON (CP) Tire Star says Canadian officials are "understandably furious" over Ihe appli- caliou of President Nixon's wage there in wilh- liolding expected pay increases by subsidiaries of two U.S. It is "just Ific kind of action that, goads the forces nl economic Ihc Star editorial says. Tlio firms mentioned arc Douglas Aircraft and Chrysler Corp. Ottawa's poin! is thai the no-day freeze ordered by Nixon i.i "dors not happen to be Canadian policy and il is bad lonnors at the least to have Urn wages of frozen or unfrozen on Hie orders of Die prcsidcni of anollKT country."

Exiled Hungarian cardinal Mindszenty free at last ROME (AP) Free at last, Josef Cardinal Mindszenty of H un g a 17 arrived in Home today. For the last 15 years the Homan Catholic primate of Hungary had teen in exile in the United States diplomatic mission al Budapest. He fled there in 1956 after five days' freedom during the Hungarian uprising. The Communists in Hungary had sentenced him lo life imprisonment in 1M9 on charges of treason because of his opposition to their takeover. The prelate, 79, arrived on a flight from Vienna. Tins evidently signalled the end of a long dispute between the Catholic Church and the Communist government of Hun- gary. There was no immediate in- formation about the circum- stances on his leaving the lega- tion, but the timing apparently .had something to do with the opening Thursday of the third World Synod of Bishops. The cardinal's presence in the CARDINAL MINDSZENTY U.S. mission was a major ob- stacle to improved relations be- tween the church and the Hun- garian regime. Over (lie years, the Vatican and the Budapest regime of Janos Kadar occasionally tried to work out a solution, but the cardinal refused to leave the mission under conditions he in- sisted were humiliating. Trudeau promises wheat payments By PAUL JACKSON Herald's Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Trudeau told the Commons M o n d a y the government doesn't intend to default much longer in handing over the mil- lions of dollars it owes to west- ern grain farmers. Under heavy questioning by Opposition members, Mr. Tru- deau said if the new stabiliza- tion bill isn't passed soon the government will withdraw it and pay the farmers the money owed under the provisions of the temporary Wheat Reserves Act. Soviet speech mild UNITED NATIONS (CP) Tlie Soviet Union called today for tJie admission of Communist China to the United Nations but added a veiled warning that the growing rapprochement be- tween the United Slates and Pe- king should not be directed against the Soviet Union. Tlie call and the warning were given by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in one of the most moderate Russian speeches delivered in the (Jen- oral Assembly in some years. Gromyko, as re- jected the American concept of representation here of both Cniiiirunisl China and Na- tionalists in Taiwan, lie also re- ferred lo the "conlcmp aled of rclnlions" be- tween Washington nnd Peking. Then he added n statement lhat the Soviet Union is opposed In policies hy a country or a group of countries directed against the Iceilimnlc interests n( ,1 state, But he made it plain that the only reason the farmers haven't got the 5100 million un- 'der the stabilization bill or the million estimat- ed to be owed under the tem- porary reserves act is because opposition members have held up passage of the new bill. The prime minister was vig- orously attacked by two Al- berta members, Gerald Bald- win, Progressive Conservative house leader and member for Peace Hiver, and Eldon Wool- liams, Progressive Conserva- tive member for Calgary North, over the government's wheat payments policy. Mr. Baldwin charged the prime minister with blackmail over the government's actions. He attempted to get a motion before the House condemning the situation and urging pay- ment under the old act. Mr. Woolliams wanted In know if any western premiers had raised objections to tlie al- leged disobeying of the tem- porary wheat reserves act pro- visions. The prime minister said he knew of none. Outside the house Mr. Tru- deau suggested western farm- ers should "flood" their oppo- sition members with letters condemning them for holding up payments provided for un- der the stabilization bill. Quebec police return after hour s Benson cites damage WASHINGTON (CP) Fi nance Minister E. J. Benson told the 118-member Interna- tional Monetary Fund today that Canada is getting "more than our share" of trouble from the United States' measures to correct the U.S. imbalance of world commerce payments. He urged in his main speech to the IMF annual meeting that the Western world keep in mind that problems imposed on the developing nations by the cui rent trade and monetary trou- bles. Benson said changes are needed both in IMF practices in trying to keep currency ex- change rates stable, and in the IMF constitution by'which most of tlie world co-operates to slave off speculative runs on their currencies. More flexibil- ity in day-to-day trade in cur- rencies is needed, he added. "The immediate objective is to establish conditions within which the present large imbal- ance in international payments mil get adjusted within the framework of expanding world Benson said. "Much damage is already being done by the present slate of affairs. It is having a serious impact on Lhe Canadian econ- omy. We fed we are getting more than our share of the trou- ble." FACE GRAVE CHALLENGE Benson spoke of President Nixon's move Aug. 15 to let the U.S. dollar float, without its long-established anchor of being lied tj gold at S35 an ounce, and appealed for continued efforts to free international trade from tariff and other restrictions. "We now are confronted with the gravest challenge to the post-war he said. "All of us have an obligation to work together to resolve this' crisis through an expansion of trade and employment, and an im- provement in relations among the countries of the world." NATO CONCERNED Meanwhile the North Atlantic Assembly voiced "concern" to- day about the special United States economic measures and renounced unilateral action by NATO members in the eco- nomic and monetary sphere. Stiffened by an amendment proposed by (lie Canadian dele- gation, a draft recommenda- tion on the current financial and trade crisis was adopted without opposition on a show-of- hands vote. Pensioner hits soccer pool jackpot MADRID (AP) Rafael Fon- tau Duran, 70-year-old pen- sioner, hit a record jackpot in Spain's soccer pools, officials announced Monday.

The previous record win was EDGAR BENSON Canada hit hard Ulster truce urged LONDON (CP) An emer- gency summit meeting in North- ern Ireland ended tonight with a call by three prime ministers for an end to the violence there. B r i t a i n 's Edward Heath, Northern Ireland's Brian Faulk- ner and the Irish Republic's Jack Lynch added that they jointly seek a quick end to Northern Ireland's internment without trial of suspected repub- lican subversives. The prime ministers said their aim is to establish har- mony and co-operation between Northern Ireland's feuding com- munities, the Protestant maior- ily and the largely pro-republi- can Roman Catholic third of tha population. DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. (CP) Labor Minister Jean Cournoyer wont to work as ,a mediator today while provincial police returned to their putts follow ing a 36-hour work stoppage. Mr. Cournoyer met in Quebec City villi representa- tives of the government and the Quebec Provincial Policemen's Association shorty after the police voted to accept him as mediator and return to work immediately.------------------------------------- HETURN REQUIRED Mr. Cournoycr was appointed as special mediator in the dis- pute by Premier Robert Bour- assa late Monday night. He of- fered to resume negotiations in the dispute that is centred on compensation for vacation time worked by the force during the three-month kidnap crisis that began last October. The offer was made contin- gent on the decision by the ex- ecutive to request their mem- bership to return to their posts. Just after the proposal was made, the QPPA announced its members did not want to return to work, but still wanted Mr. Cournoyer to act as mediator. Tills sparked an hour-long dis- cussion between Mr. Cournoycr and the QPPA executive and then the executive met privately before returning to (he main au- ditorium in the cultural centre here lo address the members of the association. The walkout left many areas in the province with only mini- mal police protection. It began as a 24-hour walkout but was extended for an indefinite pe- riod Monday night, STATES POSITION Mr. Coumoyer's offer to the executive, headed by Guy Mag- nan, reflected the position of the government, stated earlier Monday night by Premier Bourassa. The premier said: "There can be no question of the government resuming nego- tiations with the provincial po- licemen before they go back to work. He said if the government agreed "to negotiate with the police while they are holding Uleir study sessions, it would constitute a precedent which all other groups of employees could follow." "My government will not per- mit that." MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union launched an automatic space station namc-d Luna 19 to- ward the moon Tass re- ported.
