Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THl U1HM1DGI HWAVD Trfday, Ap.il J, WO- TOIUMS Shaun Herron Lethbridge Air Service A New Day Is Dawning In All Ireland An Air Canada vice-president came and went this week without making a firm statement on whether his com- pany will drop its Calgary-Lethbridge run. There are the strongest rumors that the flight will be turned over to Pacific Western, which now oper- ates frequently between Calgary and Edmonton. ]f the decision has al- ready been made, Mr. Wood should have said so when he was here. However it is the service not the courtesies, that is most important. Much as Lethbridge appreciates Air Canada, any other carrier offer- ing equal or better service will also be appreciated. Mr. did leave hope that, with proof of traffic volume, Air Canada might put Lethbridge on an east- west flight. That would be a big boost for city business. Naturally there is concern for the future of Time Airways, a local en- terprise that has done much to main- tain Lethbridge ties with the com- merical world. While it cannot sub- stitute for main-line service by the larger aircraft, Lethbridge still needs it.

Other things Terence O'Neill's old riding Chicnester-CIarke But it is also a to the North would Opinion in the United States is divided on where President Nixon really stands concerning school dese- gregation. His recent policy state- ment on the matter was certainly not crystal clear. Columnist Carl Rowan has taken a cynical view of the President's pos- ition. He feels it will do nothing to improve things and may even be the signal of a retreat on the civil rights front. Columnist Joseph Kraft has express- ed the view that the President has really put himself firmly on the side of fair race relations. While the policy statement was "a good deal less than a clarion call" he admits, it is not an abandonment of the goal of desegregation. In his statement, the President distinguished between the kind of de jure segregation expressed in dual school systems and de facto segrega- tion which is the result of the con- gregating of racial groupings. He was unequivocal about his insistence that former kind must go as fast as possible. By not insisting that schools in predominantly white or black areas have their constituencies mixed he was taking appears on the surface, at least to be a prag- matic approach. The bussing of stu- dents from .school to school in Los Angeles, for instance, could cost that city ?40 million. Mr. Nixon reasons that money spent on improving the educational opportunities in the ghettos would accomplish far more for the blacks. There is no necessary contradiction in the President's position. Desegre- gation is being pushed in areas where there are duplicate schools because that is uneconomical and gives pre- judice the sanction of law; integra- tion is not being pushed in other areas because that would be unecon- omical and might not achieve as much in breaking down prejudice as imagined. But Carl Rowan says the appropria- lion of billion in aid to ghetto schools won't work. He says the money may start out for the ghetto but it will be short-circuited by the same people who Jim Crowed the schools. Money designated for the "racially impacted" schools has fre- quently gone elsewhere in the past which accounts for the cynicism in the present and lack of confidence about the future. While few people are under any illusions thai either de jure or de facto segregation is going to be erased very quickly it is hardly fair to suggest as some critics have that the Nixon Administration has sold out to-the South. The fact is that desegregation in the de jure situa- tions will continue. Desegregation in the de facto situations has certainly taken a setback but that is scarcely a sop to the South. The President's position is not bad, but more was expected from him. 1 TO ASOUNP AS IOHQ AS UVEP 10 110'" Enough Headaches Letters To The Editor Some concern has been expressed by library personnel in Alberta over a clause in the new School Act. It states that school boards "may establish, maintain and operate a library 'pursuant to the Libraries Act." The Director of Public Libraries in Calgary, W. R. Castell, in a letter to The Calgary Herald, observed that it is alarming to think of the pos- sibility of a city library system pass those of a large urban public library system. Actually there does not seem to be much likelihood of this happening. .School boards are only apt to also become library authorities in small centres. At any rate, changes in the governance libraries must first be approved under the Libraries Act so that no hasty and ill- considered action can be seriously envisaged. School boards have enough head- aches as it is. .it is inconceivable Open Letter To Premier Strom On IVete Labor Act I am deeply disturbed over your Social Credit Government being heU-bent on ramming-this newly proposed labor bill down our throats. This is a four-foot ceiling bill designed for a six- foot roan, which will deny him the ability to raise himself to his fun stature. How can a hu- man being in this position live in comfort and dignity? We have a high standard of Kving in this province, arid it was not handed to us. by the Social Credit Government or the employers. We've reached it through the bargaining power of our unions. Now you want to take this away from us. 1C this bill you propose bad been in.effect twenty years ago, we never would have experienced the high standard of living we have today. To prove this Mr. Strom, compare the standard of living with those workers in the non-union shops. They are at Drinking In Society Pervasive being handed over to the school that they would invite more respon- board for maintenance and operation, sibility and possibly more trouble He feels that a school board's inter- by seeking to take over the admin- ests are not wide enought to encom- istration of libraries as well. Art Buchwald WASHINGTON cried Prof. Applebaum in his laboratory the day. "I have found the answer to the pop- latlon explosion." The professor was working at his black- board on a very complicated mathematical formula. "Have you developed a new birth-control I asked him. "No, it's belter than that. I have dis- covered that in two years no one will want children any more." "But why, "Because they're becoming such a pain in the neck. Look at this equation, Y rep- resents children, Z represents parents. Put Y over Z and it equals X." "What does X stand "The parents' pain-in-the-neck thresh- old." Applebaum scrawled furiously on the blackboard. "In 1968 one out c! four couples said of its children "Who needs them I" The first three months of 1970 have shown one out of every two couples asking the question. If my calculations are correct and Uie behaviour patterns of the children remain constant, the question may be asked unanimmisly in 1072 by every parent in the United Stales." "You can conceivably see people actually giving up I asked Applebaum. "I'm certain of he said. "Look at It from a practical point of view. NYhy do people have "To give them "Exactly. How many parents
