Austin Daily Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1970, Austin, Minnesota Austin daily Herald opinion Pace saturday october 17, 1970 a Page 4 Quebec terror tests Rule of Law a humor columnist writing about the abduction of two hostages by French Canadian terrorists might begin something like this Quot the trouble goes Back to the failure of the Paris peace treaty of 1763 ending the French and Indian War to achieve a just and lasting peace in the disputed Quebec area. The refugee Camps set up on the Plains of Abraham have become Breeding grounds of guerrillas seeking. Such an attempted analogy with the situation in the Middle East would be less humourless than futile however. A o a while there is Little to choose from Between the terrorist tactics of the Fly the front for the liberation of Quebec and those of the pulp the popular front for the liberation of Palestine there Are no explanations for the existence of a Quebec a a liberation Quot or separatist movement in Canada More than 20 years after the British wrested it from France and More than too years after it was established As a nation with Quebec As an integral part of it. The French speaking minority one third of the total population has of course Long complained of discrimination at Tho hands of the dominant English speaking majority. But today a French Canadian is prime minister and French has been elevated to equal status with English in the government a flit is in fact the very Success of French canadians in recent years in achieving economic and political Equality that Best explains the growth of separatist senti Mentse sentiments that Are not however shared by More than a Small minority of quebecois. It is this resurgence of Pride plus the fact that huge Quebec is and has always been a predominantly French province in the midst of English speaking provinces. But How explain the terrorists with their bombings and their kidnappings even the Leader of the Quot official Quot separation party the parti quebecois Calls the Fly Quot a Type of sewer rat with which every society is afflicted in its partisan a o a the Fly is no More to be explained than those other sewer rats below the Border the weathermen though the Fly does at least have some sort of rational goal beyond Mere terrorism. There is Only one Way to Deal with the rats. Unfortunately refusal to the Fly s Ransom demands May Cost More innocent lives in addition to those already destroyed by bombs set off by terrorists during the past to or so. Much More however is at stake than individual lives. The whole concept of government under Law is being Quot tested to its uttermost Quot today says University of Minnesota anthropologist e. Adamson Hoebel. Law Quot is the major tool of social control developed and used by 30,000 generations of men who preceded us Quot and must be preserved Quot if we Are to survive Quot he told the 1970 up editors and publishers conference in Williamsburg a. The distressing events in Canada provide Only the latest underscoring of the truth of those words. Faster faster not Only Are More americans driving More places they re driving there faster about one half mile per hour per year faster to be exact. A new study released by the Highway users federation for safety and mobility shows that Between 1947 and 1967, the percentage of vehicles exceeding 50 . On sampled Rural highways increased Iron 40 to 80 per cent due to improvement in vehicles and roads during that period. These increases in Speed Are not necessarily bad though they do exact certain tires brakes handling and a motorists own visual and motor response Are among the vehicle Driver capabilities that Are taxed As speeds increase. The report concludes however that lower Speed controls on Urban or Rural highways have no Strong potential for reducing accidents significantly. The least probability of accidents occurs when motorists Are generally driving at the same Pace rather than at very High or very Low speeds. Opinions of others a Gripe groups Quot during the past year or so citizens groups such As taxpayers etc., have sprung to life in every Nook and cranny of the area. As hard As they try sometimes they Are not taken seriously by political bodies because of the feeling that such groups Are Only a Gripe groups. And As they try to mix politics and economics it is As if they were caught up in a whip saw. If Only Hie Public w Ould support such organizations politicians would soon be forced to the a new interest in the consequences of their acts and proposals. We think politics and practical economics would follow almost Mountaintop pa., Eagle. Death from dope Quot facts have it that accidents on the highways deaths in Vietnam fall far Short of leading the league. The greatest single cause of death in the 17 through 25 age group is dope. We have the finest crop of youth in history. Some May disagree but look at the records. They Are better students run faster jump higher and Are better than those who came before them physically. All this even with the curves being quotation for today he who is slow to Angel is better than the mighty and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a City. A proverbs 16 32. The Man who is bigger than his Job keeps Cool. He refuses to become rattled to Fly off in a temper to stamp and holler and swear. The Man who would control others must be Able to control himself.

Useless paper work Quot considering that George Washington started the . Government with nine executive agencies employing a total of 1,000 Federal workers this gives you Soma idea of the developments since that time. The Federal government today is a Patchwork of nearly 2,000 agencies each sub divided into bureaus sections divisions and committees. There must be some method of simplifying the existing government. We Are smothering ourselves in useless paper work most of it winds up in warehouses in dust Laden files. A Bonduel wis. Times salutes competitors Quot a businessman has a plaque on a Wall above his desk which reads As follows a my competitors do More for me than my friends do my friends Are too polite to Point out my weaknesses but my competitors go to great expense to advertise them.

Turn Back the clock 30 years ago a Survey of the City for future planning of playground facilities was set in motion last night.

Ppr that ainu to Bunting Lee Mueller English accent intimidates citizens of United states London a Nea a it is not a topic we care to discuss but it is True. Gospel. If there is one thing on Earth that intimidates citizens of the United states shrivel them into Poi to crisps it is an English accent. There is something about the English language when spoken through the Teeth of even a moderately educated briton. Somehow for some reason he sounds More educated More refined More High toned Richer and certainly More civilized than we do. It is for this reason a and none other a that people like Bing Crosby hire English butlers and maids to answer Tele phones and doorbells. The e r e May be some truth in the British having a better attitude toward this calling but its the accent a the Cool a i see. A that gets the Job. Nobody can say a i see. Quot like an englishman. Personally i do not have an English accent. My voice i am told quite resembles the Sweet trill of a mockingbird at Twilight a assuming of course that mockingbird was raised in Eastern Kentucky and has a head cold. I am what they Call a Lill Billy baritone. Like most americans i was for years intimidated by British accents. Whenever i was in a conversation with englishmen and one of them began talking i shut up. Who was i to interrupt a British accent that is All Over now. However. There a a plate in London where you can go and take the cure. The place is speakers Corner. It is located in the Northeast end of Hyde Park each wednesday and sunday and gives a platform to anyone who wants to say something about anything. Hundreds attend Many speak Many More argue with the speakers and others just listen or talk among themselves. Nearly All speak with British accents. The train of subject matter rattles past a Long haired Stu dents cries for revolution to a Large red faced Man in fishing boots who preaches for 15 minutes on the virtue of bathing. Quot water not woman is gods gift to he shouted. Quot cleanse your body and you cleanse your Quot go jump in the thames shouted a heckler referring to the River a polluted condition. Poor i thought but he got applause arguments sometimes Border on anger but there have been no incidents of death at speakers Corner since Public hangings were discontinued there in 1887. I decided to speak a decision of considerable magnitude since the last time i had spoken to an assembled audience was at a Jaycee meeting seven years ago. It also was of considerable magnitude in View of the number of speakers one had to out shout just to be heard. Standing i waved both arms in the air Nixon style and shouted Quot muh Frens Gimme yer Atte shun Fer a minute Quot the clamor died instantly. It was As though someone had struck them Between the eyes with a Ball Peen Hammer. Quot what did he say a asked some idiot loudly. A Yeh Quot said another Guy. Quot i say fellow Are you an Eskimo Quot shrugging off these slovenly chaps i continued to speak eloquently on the subject of Granny a tartan a rare disease indicated by mottling of the legs and caused by sitting too close and Long by the fireplace. After three minutes i sat Down to a smattering of applause. I was purged. I decided. Free of hangups about men and their accents. If they could forgive me mine. I could forget theirs. And i have. Quick quiz q a does the . Flag Fly Over the White House Only when the president is in Washington d. C.? a a no it flies Over the White hous whether or not the president is in Washington. Q a what is the present monetary value of a . Dollar in terms of Gold Gold has not circulated As Money in our country since 1933. It continues however to serve As a Standard of Money values 13.714 grains of pure Gold corresponding to $1. Q a who was the first boy scout to become president of the United states a a John f. Kennedy. Q a what great evangelist was once a major league baseball player a a Billy sunday who played in the National league from 1883 to 1891. The family lawyer heir conditioning Freddie was delighted to hear at the Reading of Uncle Danes will that he was supposed to inherit a Large sum of Money. But there was a catch. The Money would be his Only on condition that he give up cigarettes. In Short order Freddie challenged the Validity of this ant cigarette clause. Quot Uncle Dan had no right to try to control my private life in this a 1970 by Nia in this is awful Junior s living in a hippie commune and it says he s from an upper Middle class family instead of an upper class family4 Way a he complained in a court hearing. Quot my personal habits in eluding smoking Are no ones business but my however the court ruled that Freddie would have to either give up his cigarette habit or lose the Money. The judge said that since the Money belonged to Uncle Dan he had a right to put strings on his gift if he so desired. Of course it is natural for a person making his will to want to shape the character or conduct of his heirs. Nevertheless the Law does impose limits As to How far he can go. Consider this Case a Man left Money to his daughter on condition that she not Only give up cigarettes herself but also make her husband give them up. This time a court decided the Man had gone too far and held the anti smoking clause null and void. The court said he h a d asked his daughter to do something that was not fairly within her Power. Furthermore in close cases the courts Are inclined to let the heir keep the bequest even if he has not lived up fully to the expectations expressed in the will. Thus another Man was worried about his songs dissolute friends. He provided in his will that the son should have certain valuable real estate so Long As he did not become a Quot drunkard and a As things turned out after the Man died his son did indeed of come a drunkard. But he never did become a Vagabond. Accordingly not having acquired both of the vices specified in t h e will he was held still entitled to the real estate. The court said it was reluctant to take away an inheritance unless the will left no real Choice. Library 3 id carte by Jean Lommen Reader advisor Austin pub let Rory it news you tan use.
