Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Third Section The Lethbrukje Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, April 12, 1973 Pages 27-32 ALL THE GROCERIES YOU CAN SNATCH UP Supermarkets become racetracks By THE CANADIAN PRESS Suddenly, across the country, supermarkets have become su- per raceways. Throughout the week, house- wives have been getting on their marks and, at the right command, heading for the food counters in a five-minute grab- a soft-drink company picking up the tab in the promo- tion contest. It's a great spectator sport. Five-hundred jammed the Cornwall, Ont-, supermarket where Janet Jasmin was doing the 50-foot sprint along the meat counter. "They were hanging from the light said manager George Bandy. Technique is also involved: No turning corners for Mrs. Jasmin; she kept on the straight for more speed. By end-of-play she's crammed six shopping carts with worth of food, mostly meat. "She did a terrific job under said Bandy, who has arranged for her to take her winnings in average suburban refrigerator isn't equipped to take all those roasts, hams, pork chops and chickens. Over in Mississauga, near To- ronto, Pat Dupuis was storing up nervous energy for a week. She almost cleaned out the meat counter at her local super- market, filling six carts for in purchases. "I did pretty she said at home, "but the place is in a mess." Her training instructions: Stick to the high-value meats "to get the mostest the fastest-" But when it comes to real style, Morley Miller of Cam- bridge, Ont., takes some beat- ing. She notched up of goodies in eight carts Thurs- day. Today she's recovering. "I really she ob- served. The family almost had to move out of the house to make way for the winnings. With home faculties swamped, Mrs. Miller has rented freezer spac- from a local dairy. "I couldn't care less about the meat boycott she said. But the flying Mrs. Miller didn't just stick to the meat counter. She also managed to grab 100 pounds of butter, a large quantity of canned salmon, three big cans of cat- sup, enough coffee to last a year, and a good supply of fur- niture polish- New record?

The 74-year-old Chinese leader applauded strongly at laughed just as heartily at the 300- pound champions of the sport displayed their prowess in an exhibition in the workers sta- dium here recently. The premier., accompanied by Yeh Chien-ying, a Bed Army marshal who is serving as act- ing minister of defence, arrived about half way through the hour exhibition. Neither man has appeared to be so fascinated by any sports than pingpong, of which Chou is an avid he has attended in recent years. At one point, when a relative lightweight of 250 pounds lifted a behemoth of 350 and tossed him bodily from the ring, the premier shook with laughter and cupped his hand to his mouth to make a jocular aside to the marshal. Pakistanis learning hard way Atlantic union plan ignored WASHINGTON (AP) The House of Representatives re- fused Tuesday even to consider a proposal for talks 'involving Canada, the United States and European countries on uniting some day in a single Atlantic union. The Senate had passed it, but the House rejected a rou- tine debating rule for joint reso- lution 210 to 197, thus refusing even to debate and vote on the resolution. The premier's citement at the combat, curios- ity at the elaborate ritual of the sport and mirth at some of the wrestlers' typical of the response of the people who have crammed into every available seat in the sta- dium for the four performances given by the Sumo troupe dur- ing the past week. It was the first sports ex- change between the two coun- tries since they established dip- lomatic relations last Septem- ber and the eagerness for tick- ets among ordinary Chinese made it evident that the Japa- nese could scarcely have made a better choice to get the ex- change program rolling. Although much of Japanese culture has its origins in mas- sivfc cultural borrowing from China more than 1.000 years ago, Sumo is an entirely Japa- nese seemingly just as strange to the Chinese as to other non-Japanese. Teen-age soldiers with forage caps pulled down about their ears could not disguise their mirth at the first sight of the improbable-looking sportsmen, their obesity revealed by the skimpy jockstrap-like truss of starched silk called a mawashi that is worn in the ring. However, the laughter quickly to bemusement as the wrestlers moved through the elaborate ritual that precedes each bout, bowing low to each other, dusting (heir armpits to show their cleanliness, throwing salt into the ring to purify it and stamping their feet to drive away evil spirits. A Western spectator at the basho as the Japa- nese appropriately call could not help being struck by the great contrast between the popular cultures of the two great nations of Asia as re- flected in the Chinese reaction to the Sumo exhibition. In a way, the contrast re- flected the differing paths cho- sen by each nation as it strug- gled to free itself of the burden of its feudal past. In doing so, the Chinese have chosen to abandon almost all of the ritual and much of the color of that past: In stark contrast, the Japanese have deliberately fos- tered its survival, even as they have modernized in other spheres.

Phone 327-3147 Soviets not famous for altruism TEHRAN (CP) Pakis- tanis are learning the hard way that fey may have-to re- vise their attitude to offers of assistance from the Soviet Union. The offers, it is becoming increasingly clear, are not motivated by an altruistic de- sire to assist a developing economy get on its feet, but appear to be sometimes crude covers for political and even economic gain by the Soviets themselves. One example is the agree- ment signed between the So- viet Union and Pakistan some years -ago hy skins Vvere to assist Pakistan to develop its fishing industry. Under this agreement a team of Soviet fishing experts vis- ited Pakistan in 1970 and made an extensive survey of the fishing area off the Kara- chi and Mekran coast. The area has long been known to be rich in crusta- cean fish such as shrimps and lobsters. In October last year, how- COMING WATCH ever, just two years 'after their extensive survey, the Russians reappeared in the area but without bothering to get the approval or sanction of Pakistani authorities. They came this time with about seven trawling vessels equipped with the latest elec- tronic fishing devices and ac- companied by a factory ship with facilities to treat and can the fish aboard immediately after they are caught. They began trawling just outside the 12-mile limit of Pakistan's territorial waters, taking huge hauls of shrimps and other fish. MIGRATION SEASON The Russians timed their operations to coincide with the season, between fall and spring, when the crustaceans migrate from the deep to the shallow coastal water. By keeping as close to the 12-mile limit as possible they have been able to scoop up the bulk of the fish before they got in- side the territorial limit. Paki- stani fishermen watching the whole episode with dismay, reported that the Russians often got inside the 12-mile limit when they knew they were able to get away with it. The Pakistani fishermen have had to watch this plun- der of their traditional fishing area in heartbroken silence. After the Russians have had their pick, the Pakistanis find that their catch of shrimps and other fish in the 12-mile shallows has shrunk to one- third of the former haul. The Pakistani use old-style launches. The average daily catch by the Pakistanis before the Rus- sians came was 120.000 pounds of shrimps and some 100 tons of other fish. Their shrimp catch now has shrunk to about or pounds, with the other fish haul down to a bare 19 tons. About one4hird of the Pakistani fishing vessels have simply gone out of business. Their owners and crews, now on the starvation level, are hunting for other work in job- scarce Karachi. Those who have held on .are desperate. CONTROL EXTENDED Unhappily, the government of President Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto has not been able to help these fishermen. Though the Pakistani authorities knew of the presence of the Rus- sians in the area since Octo- ber last, they only began to take up the issue with the Russians in March, and ap- parently have not even lodged a protest with Moscow. However, Islamabad now has unilaterally declared that its territorial waters extend up to 50 miles offshore. Whether the Soviets accept this is still to be seen. DOLLAR for DOLLAR...
