Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Treatment Centre For Children CALGARY (CP) Wood's Christian Home, which closer in August, 1969, after 54 years us an orphanage, will be re- opened in October as a treat- ment centre for emotionally dis- turbed children. Directors of the home decid- ed to start the centre on the advise- of the Calgary and Re- gion Mental Health Planning Council which said there was a shortage of such facilities in the city. E. W. Beeves, board chair- man for the home, said the pro ject has been financed by the provincial government for its first three years and will take in about 10 children this fall. By the third year, about 3C wculd he receiving treatment. Canada Watches N-Forces At Play Coal Mines Production Increases OTTAWA (CP) Canadian coal mines produced tons in July, an increase of al- most 70 per cent from the tons a year earlier, Do- minion Bureau of Statistics re- ported today. The increase reflected activ- ity in Alberta and British Col- umbia mines, which expanded production this year to fill Japa- nese orders. Imports in the month dropped to tons from tons in July, 1969. Consumption by domestic industry was down to tons from tons in 1969. Grain Barter Market Has Ups, Dotvns REGINA (CP) Judging by the adventures of one par- ticular wheat sack, the bar- ter market has its ups and downs too.

By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) Canada living in a nuclear no man' land between super-powers, i watching the forces at play ii the latest phase of tlie Ameri can-Soviet competition for su periority in doomsday wca ponry.

Or it ma; prove no more than a pawn in the U.S.-Soviet strategic arms limitation talks in Vienna. This was indicated in White House announcement u mid-August that the U.S. had offered to give up ils anti-mis sile defence system entirely i the Soviet Union would agree to limit the number of its huge offensive missiles and abandon its own missile defences. COULD UPSET BALANCE The U.S. so far hasn't asked for and doesn't need Canadian participation for defensive missiles planned to seek oul and destroy any attacking nu clear warheads; looped at the U.S., from the north high over Canada. But if that system should be extended, Canadian co-opera tion might well be needed anc sought, it is suggested. Canada's view is that any anti-missile defence system is harmful to prospects of a nu clear truce beyond the exist ing curbs on testing of nuclear weapons as observed by the U.S., Russia and Britain. Can ada thinks the counter-missile could upset the balance o U.S. and Soviet deterrent forces, setting off an even greater arms race. The 1968 agreement to con- tinue for five additional years the North American Air Def- ence Command, in which Can- ada co-operates with the U.S for anti-bomber defence, car- ried this stipulation: "This agreement will not in- volve in any way a Canadian commitment to participate in an active ballistic missile def- ence." The U.S. has not pressed the matter. "There is no urgency in their minds for us to partici- says Dr. J. F. Ruddell of the defence research board.

LIMITED, EDMONTON, ALBERTA might have for weapons of mass destruction, Canada nevertheless does lie between Uie U.S. at one side and the U.S.S.R. and China on the other. The flight paths of any long-range nuclear missiles fired in either direction lie over Canada. Only missiles fired from the far Pacific coast of Asia heading for southern California would miss net by much. it "We are in no man's land and we always will said Dr. G. R. Lindsey, director of defence research analysis. "That is something that is simply a fact of geography." One consequence is that a nuclear .explosion with the power of millions of tons of TNT might take place over Canada. Spartan defensive missiles, to be stationed in the northern states under President Nix- on's Safeguard anti-missile system, a range of about 400 miles. Interceptions of attacking Soviet or Chinese missiles the system works above Cana- dian territory at a height of about 75 miles, it is said. DESIGNED TO DESTROY Defence scientists say the explosion of the nuclear- tipped defending missile, de- signed to destroy attacking warheads by "cooking" them with radiation, would occur far enough above the atmos- phere for fallout to be negligi- ble. Radioactive waste would be carried away in the strato- sphere and dispersed, they say. However, a person on the ground who happened to be looking at the blast could suf- fer permanent eye damage. A second safeguard system missile is the shorter-range and less powerful Sprint, de- signed to take out any attack- ing weapons that escape the 'Spartan and re-enter the at- mosphere. It is less certain whether such explosions and fallout would occur over Canada. Dr. Lindssy has said that even if a Sprint warhead burst three miles above the ground, it would produce no fallout and no important ra- diation or heat risk. It proba- bly would break some win- dows. At an altitude of 20 miles, Sprint would not pro- duce any of these hazards. Its maximum range is about 35 miles. The exact location of the western launching pads, to be built in the of Great Falls, Mont, -and Grand Forks, N.D., has not evidently been determined yet. FUNDS ARE VOTED Great Falls is about 80 miles and Grand Forks about 50 nr'es south of the border. They are the only two sites in the' projected 12-base Safe- guard system for which Con- gress has voted funds. President Nixon is asking authorization for an additional site in Missouri, plus author- ity to do advanced prepara- tion work for five other sites. The five include the North- west, Northwest and Michi- gan-Ohio areas. The avowed purposes of the Safeguard system are to pro- tect the U.S. attack-missile arsenals from Soviet weap- ons; protect U.S. cities against a slowly developing threat from Chinese long- range rockets, and provide protection against accidental missile launchings from any source. A new emphasis on protect- ing American attack weapons is partly attributable to Rus- sia's development of powerful new missile carriers capable of hurling warheads at more than one target. U.S. planners fear this de- velopment poses the threat of a surprise overwhelming strike at the heart of the nu- clear deterrent, possibly by the mid-1970s. The U.S., how- ever, also is developing its own multi-hsaded attack mis- siles. Experts here say that while His Safeguard program does not require a Canadian contri- bution to achieve its goal, it. Elock Musician Leaves Estate Of NEW YORK (AP> Rock- musician Jimi Hendrix, who led in London Sept. 18, has left an estate estimated at A petition filed in Surrogate's ourt hero saj-s Hendrix, whose ull name vyas James Marshall lendrix, did not leave a will or disposal of his estate. Hendrix's father, James, will e the sole beneficiary under law, although a brother, 22, also survives. BoUj ve in Seattle, Wash. could provide protection for large numbers of Ca-.adians. Dr. Lindsey has said this "depends on factors thnt would have to be v.'orked out in great detail." One obvious unknown: whether the U.S. authorities would choose to have their system intercept a missile aimed at Canada. If the U.S. ever decides to construct a heavy anti-missile system, as opposed to the cur- rently planned light one, the picture in regard to Canadian participation could change radically, experts say. The use of Canadian bases might then be considered mandatory for effective def- ence of the U.S. The radar eyes of the anti- missile system would be more effective the farther north they could probe for enemy warheads. Canada might find itself under heavy pressure from Washington to permit construction of anti-missile iltes on its soil. "Remember, Russia and China arc north of the not says a defence re- sea.-' l.w. Canada already is involved in olrangely divergent ways. NORAD radar sensors are equipped to detect, identify and warn of missile attacks against North America. Their contribution would be vital to the success of the anti-missile system. But Canada protested vigor- ously against a U.S. under- ground test in the Aleutians last year, designed to help perfect the anti-missile war- head. Canada objected that the blast might set off an earth- qur'-e, which in turn might send a destructive tidal wave hurtling toward the British Columbia coast. No such quake occurred, but the gov- ernment has left open the pos- sibility of another protest when the U.S. conducts a more powerful test blast in the same area late next year. Tueiday, September 29, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ 17 Price Control Program Discussed TORONTO CP) The fed- eral prices and incomes com- mission is holding preliminary talks with business leaders to determine what form the volun- tary price restraint program should take in 1971, Dr. John Young, commission chairman, says. Speaking at the two-day an- nual meeting of the Canadian Electrical Manufacturers' Asso- ciation, Dr. Young said he hopes to be able to announce the 1971 program before the end of this year. He said the commission also will be looking at ils six-per- cent annual wage guideline for- mula in the next two or three months to see if it should be revised next year. Dr. Young told delegates that Canada "is within a few percen- tage points of achieving reason, able price stability." "But there are still serious difficulties in a c h i c v i n g re- straint in wages and salaries, and not only among organized he said. Economists, a wide range of other professional people and some executives have gained more than organized labor in the last year and these in- creases have been "much in ex- cess of productivity he said. Commenting on current prico levels, Dr. Young said that if. Canada can hold prices to last year's levels "we will be doiag very well." Doctors Seek Monitor Unit EDMONTON CP) Two doctors have asked the board of Royal Alexandra Hospital for to purchase a pre- birth monitor unit for tire city- operated hospital. Drs. S. W. Devine and 0. A. Oland, staff members at the hospital, said such a unit is badly needed in Edmonton and tile Royal Alexandra, with births a year should take the lead. Dr. Devine said about 900 babies a year are born with de- fects which the monitor unit could possibly detect and cor- rect. PARLIAMENT'S SMALLEST MINORITY.
