Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, April LETHBRIDQE Springtime bri romance to pandas WASHINGTON (AP) Springtime has finally brought romance to pandas Hsing- Hsing and Ling-Ling, the most celebrated residents of the National Zoo. The pair, after days of furtive glances and small talk through the fence dividing their lavish quarters, were allowed together today in the first of several meetings which scientists hope will produce the only captive offspring ever born outside China. The results were gratifying to everybody, including, obviously, Hsing-Hsing and Ling-Ling. Zoo Director Theodore Reed said the female, Ling-Ling, was "not completely receptive" but nonetheless allowed considerable nuzzling, cuddling and other manifestations of two pandas who are getting serious about one another. Reed said further encounters of about two hours a day will be allowed in the next 10 days and hopes remain high that mating will occur. If it does, the blessed event would come about five months later. The pandas were given to the United States by the Chinese during President Nixon's trip to Peking in 1972.

Figures on foreign investment only reveal a general outline of trends but it seems clear that foreign investment in Canada has become more of a continental affair. The Statistics Canada report released Wednesday is on "balance of international which is a rough measure of the relationship between foreign investment by non-residents in Canada and foreign investment by Canadians By the end of 1970, Canadian governments, corporations and individuals owed billion more than was owed them.

GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Couttt Highway Box 1202 328-1141 Edward Island election moves into the home stretch. Electoral battles here have always been straight two- party contests between Liberals and Conservatives. But for the first time, the NDP is making a strong bid for seats in the legislature. In the 1970 election, which returned the Liberals to power, there were no third- party candidates, but the NDP ran in three provincial byelections in the fall of 1972, coming last but garnering seven per cent of the popular vote. Now they have candidates running for 20 of the 32 seats at stake and the two other parties are worried about the effect they'll have on the voting patterns. 11 SEATS CLOSE Eleven seats were decided by a margin of less than 200 votes in the 1970 election, one of them by eight votes and another by 21. Premier Alex Campbell, whose Liberals took 27 of the 32 seats in the last election, says there is a good chance the NDP will spoil seats for some candidates, especially in ridings where there is dose race. "There is an unknown factor in this he says. "We know they're there, we just don't know how many." Aquinas Ryan, a 42-year-old No bath, no papers WILMINGTON, De. (AP) Samuel Lutz is fighting for his right not to take a bath. The Wilmington' News Journal and Morning News says it notified the 54-year-old newspaper pedlar Friday that it will not sell him any more papers until he takes a bath, shaves and gets a haircut. Lutz complained to a federal equal employment opportunity office in Baltimore, Md. Agency spokesman Allen Danoff said he will send Lutz the proper forms to file a formal complaint about discrimination because of appearance. Several months ago, Lutz was forced to relocate his 45- year-old business. Evicted from his newstand after the makeshift structure was declared unfit for human habitation, he shifted to a cart. 'Respect customs' VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul said today that evangelism in Asia should not be at the expense of local customs and values. "The propagation of the Christian message must in no way cancel out or lesson cultural values, which constitute a priceless he said in a state- ment. "The church must make herself in her fullest expression native to your countries, your cultures, your races." school principal who was elected last year as the NDP's first provincial leader, says he hopes the party will be more than spoilers. "We hope we can take one or two seats so we'll have a voice in the he tells voters during his campaign. Progressive Conservative leader Melvin McQuaid, also leading a party for the first time in an election, says it's difficult to say what effect the NDP will have. "We think the NDP will take more votes from the Liberals than from PC candidates, but nobody really says Mr. McQuaid. ORGANIZERS MOVE IN NDP organizers from British Columbia and Saskatchewan have moved in to help the local party in its election bid. The possible combination of a tight race in some ridings and a belief by Liberals that they are running far in the lead has Premier Campbell worried about complacency among party workers. "I remember several years ago a Liberal lost a seat by one vote." the Premier says. THE NO. 1 BRIDGE STEEL RADIAL ie time-honored quality lire.
