Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1946 LETHBRIDGE PAGE; SEVENTEEN PREMIER DOUGLAS OPPOSES COVT. CONTROL OF NEWS KEGINA. April Premier T. C. Douglac told a. x meetinc western Canada newspaper exeeutires and edit- Wednesday that he was against news and said if the C.CJF. ever came to power in Canada, that coverament would be one in which there would be "com- plete freedom of the news." Addressing a luncheon meeting of delegates to the western divisional meeting of The Canadian Press, the premier said he was not sure there complete freedom, of the press In Canada today. -In too many cases'" neisspapers mie bought, owned and controlled by people have a purpose in con- trolling and ntming" them. There should be more ne'srspapers con- trolled snd owned by people who have a passion just, for news." He hoped that eventually differ- ent groups such as co-operatives and trade unions even political parties would have their own news- papers. He would rather have a newspaper owned and controlled by a political party than have private- Ask Commission Probe Existing Tax Structure ly-ssned newspapers "selling them- selves to the highest bidder." There iras a tendency for news- papers to become the voice of those who owned and controlled them, he said, and that had a weakening in- fluence in their moulding of public opinion- Some news columns had) become clouded with editorial pol- icy. It Tsroald be a n-agedy if the in- fluence of newspapers was weak- ened, leaving the forming of public opinion to demagogues and the peo- ple believing and trusting nothing. An Independent press tita Inde- pendent news columns was abso- lutely essential. Newspapermen to- day had a duty as the guardians of human freedom and liberty. LJ.-GOY. R. J. XL Fsrier told ths meeting the freedom of the press was an instrument of the freecoaa of -the people and "you muss guard it for tiie people as you do for your- selves." "W. L.

Nuernberg Trials Likely To Continue Into Mid-Summer By ROSS MUNRO (Canadian Press Staff Writer) XTJEKNBERG, AprU The trial of Germany's 21 major war criminals which began last Nov. 20 is not likely to finish until well into the summer. This is the general opinion'of court officials and correspon- dents here who have followed the proceedings from the start. On the strength of. evidence so far K is forecast that from eight, to 15 of the accused will pay the death penalty for their crimes. Some optimistic observers believe that the hearings will conclude in June but the pessimists say Sep- tember. A fair balance seems to be late summer. Efforts are being made bv the court, prosecution and defence counsel to speed up proceedings by eliminating some comolications re- garding documentation, but no one Is particularly hopeful that much euccess -Kill be achieved. It. will probably be several months after the clearing is completed, however, before the whole business Is cleared up. Following the hearing the court must write its opinion and this may take a month" or sis weeks. A great effort will be put into writing this opinion for K be a legal document of tremendous interna- tional importance which has to face the test of history. Then the court: gives Its findings and sentences. That still does not finish the case, .for the decisions muss, then be reviewed by the Al- lied control council inJSerlin. which hag the power to comirai or to re- duce penalties. On the basis of this procedure it won't be until fall or late in the year when the case of humanity against the 21 is closed.

Easier can fall on any one of 3o dales. The earh- ts- is "March 22, which was Easter in 1818. The latest, is April 25. and only twice in the 19th and 20ih I centuries nas at laiiea tnai in 1886 and in 1943. From the Christian viewpoint: there would be nothing irreverent I in fixing a date for Easter, for ecclesiastical opinion seems to con- cur that the Crucifixion took place on Friday, April 7, AJX 30 Hence, it lias been argued thai, the second Sunday in April would be most ap- propriate for Easter, especially if that Sunday should fall on April 9 i on the first Sundav to i follow April 9. j The British parliament passed an Easter Ace 1928 fixing taster as the first Sunday after the first Sat- urday in April, contingent upon in- ternational acceptance. The inconvenience of having Eas- ter vary according to the calendar full moon that follows the vernal equinox has been felt throughout the Christian world. The varia- tions affects school and university terms and vacations, law terms, de- partment store shopping and the fashion indasmr in general. Churchmen also have objected, j The calendar mooa does not jibe! with the real moon of the heavens. j j Because of this the Resurrection I was celebrated in 1923, before the 1 anniversary of the Crucifixion. The reason was that Easter is governed if tables compiled by Clavius for! Pope Gregory SHE in the latter's! reform of the calendar, and al- thougn as accurate as sciemsncauy possible in that age, the tables have not worked out perfectly. There is no mention of Easter ob- servance in the New Testament or in the apostolic writings. The Jew- ish, Christians, observed the- Pass- over and identified the death of Christ with the evening of the fourteenth day of the moon. The Gentile Christians observed the cav of Sesurrecrion on the first day of ihe week, regardless of the dav of te month. Easter was the first day of the year for centuries. This custom persisted in Prance until 1554, when Charles IX brought his country into line with a. Xew Tear's day on January 1. f the date for Easter should not )e fixed, further complications may arise through the progress being made in complete calendar revision under the movement for the World Calendar. This scheme for equalizing the months already has the endorse- ment of 14 nations.
