Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Developing the North The Lethbttdge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, September 29, 1972 PAGES 23 28 UNEASINESS ABOUT MONTREAL OLYMPICS Drapeau determined they'll be held Map locales the northern Manitoba port of Churchill, a key factor in planning for the economic expansion of the North by the Great Plains Project. The project recom- mends that an Arctic seaport open 12 months a year and Chesterfield Inlet and Repulse Bay have been mentioned as possible sites for the The port would be linked to Churchill by road or rail up the west coast of Hudson Bay, an area which the group thinks will expert ence an economic boom in the near future. By JOSEPH MacSWEEN MONTREAL (CP) The cartoon in a French-language newspaper shows Montreal Mayor Jean Drapeau catching In m i d -a i r a bomb-tipped Olympic torch thrown from a hairy hand labelled "Mu- An English-language news- paper depicts Drapeau in the role of determined runner, "Montreal dashing homeward with a spluttering torch in which he tries to re- vive the Olympic flame. The sketches Illustrate some public unease regarding the staging of Ihs 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal following the Munich massacre of 11 Is- raoli athletes by Arab terror- ists. But there is no official fal- tering and Drapeau, 56, who has ruled Montreal for LS years, said flatly: "Just the thought of giving up the Montreal Olympic Games because of the terrible events in Munich would be to admit to the right of barbarity to impose its dictates on civi- lization." Roger Rousseau, president and commissioner-general of ths Games organizing com- mittee, also stressed that abandoning the project would be "tantamount to accepting the victory of barbarity over civilization." SOME UNEASY Drapeau is reported under pressure in the light of the Munich experience to revise his plans for building several Olympic later could be converted smoothly to low-rental than Ihe traditional single vil- lage housing all athletes.

A minis rale group in comparison with anything like the Arab Black September terrorists, the FLQ since has been quiescent. The Munich tragedy has not resulted in any new resistance to the Montreal Games in an organized sense but it gives ammunition to long-time crit- ics who say the project will cost millions which Vvould bo batter spent on urban re- newal, sewage treatment and health services. These worries are reflected by the man on the street, yet the gut feeling appears to bo there should be no turning back now and the Games must be staged with as much possi- ble, without going off the fin- ancial deep end. Some newspaper editorial writers across Canada have urged, however, that Drapeau reconsider because of the ter- rorist danger and also be- cause the future of the Olym- pics as such seems in doubt for several reasons. One papar, the Vancouver Sun, said: "It is an insult to any Cana- dian's Intelligence to expect him to believe that Montreal can stage for million what Munich is paying milliim and more fnr. yet that is what Mayor Drapeau would have us believe... Mr. Drapeau consistently invokes the strategy of high human endeavor, as he did in staging Expo 67. He maintains the world fair reaped incalcu- lable material and spiritual rewards for Canada and this city of 2.5 million, French- and English-speaking In tho ratio of six to four. For many, the memory of Expo is a two-edged argument because Canadian taxpayers up the tab fcr a whop- ping deficit and the old say- ing, "once stung, twice shy" is being kept in mind. Mao Tse-Tung Ideological Sensitivity great threat By HENRY S. BRADSHER Waslilngton Star-Ncv.s HONG KONG Of all the complex forces bearing upon the Chinese economy and the nation's political leadership, nono remains more menacing than the ideological sensitivity of Communist party Chairman Mao Tse-Tung. When the moment has seem- ed right, Mao has unleashed emotional forces of great range and impact to crush those who, in the nation's name, sought to restore balance and efficiency to the long-troubled and ideo- logically buffeted economic pro- cess. Observers of the Chinese feel that there Is a grow- ing possibility of another such SAVE HUNDREDS AS DUNLOP FORD We're blortlng off the 1973 model year with "out of world" diicountt on both our left over and of new 1973 tort.

A new wave o( subjugating economic rationality munist theory, of emphasizing MAO TSE-TUNG sensitive effort soon an effort that could be aimed at the man who symbolizes order and consis- tence in China today. That man is the durable pre- mier Chou En-Lai. Chou seems to stand astride the CWnese scene as the indispensable lead- er. But he might ba vulnerable. A few equivocal signs have appeared that, once again, in- fighting is taking place over the issues of incentives and central control of the economy of arch- ly orthodox theory and prag- matic persuasion. Rut Itie line- up is rendered uncertain by Mao's own ability to Ixmcl with necessity, even to the point of having endorsed policies which' he abhors and which he would iafcr turn upon with ruthless directness. GREAT LEAP fn a hurst of radical Com- munism U years ago, Mao dis- rupted the Chinese economy with the great leap forward. Economic progress was sought through exhortation and local- ized control rather than incen- tives and centralized direction. Recovery from the resulting depressing was achieved in the early 1960's by a return to self- interest with incentives the more bureaucratic central con- trol. These went against Mao's ideal of Communism. The man held responsible during the cultural revolution of the latter for "re- storing capitalism" to produce tho wns Liu Shao-Chi, the nation's president. The flc- iocal initiative plannirg, swept cultural revolution, apparently under Mao's guidance. Again the economy was disrupted MOVED BACK Now, in the last lew years, China has moved back to re- covery and economic growth by a return to incentives and more centralized control. The sequence wHch has a number of particular qualifica- tions, but Is generally clear raises an important question about the political situation in- side China today. Mao asserted during the cul- tural revolution that he was brushed aside and ignored dur- ing the early 1900s. He mount- ed a counterattack, ousted Liu and restored his own idealistic concepts to practice. The questions emerging now are whether Mao is unhappy that his concepts have once more been relegated and whe- ther, in fact, ho Is preparing a counterallack against Chou. Another period of rigidity, with Chou a purge target for repealing now Liu's early '60s reforms, might come about if Mao has the energy, lime and tools he needs. ENERGY He had enough energy last year to move against Lin Piao, who had succeeded Liu as No. 2. Many of the economic ills now being blamed on Lin prob- ably were Mao's responsibility originally. Now 78 years old, Mao faces a problem of time. Mounting his at'ack on Liu took four or five years. It was done with the army as a tool. But that is now useless for such a political pur- pose. The Communisl party was destroyed in the struggle, leaving Chou's governmental bureaucracy dominant. 2 door hardlop, V-8, automatic, P.S., radio, whilewall tires, wheel covers. Demo. Ren.
