Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta .ueanesdciy, April 25, inc LtiriBniuut MtnAlw A breezy spin-1902 style Mr .and Mrs. Bert Beaton breeze along for a breezy spin in Vancouver in their 1902 Wolsley. They were taking part in a drive sponsored by the Vintage Car Club of Canada. Is Kremlin Coalition beginning to break up? Not too many women were impressed TORONTO Male chauvinism in front of the mi- crophone is declining, says Phil Stone, But it doesn't seem to have impressed many women: Only two have applied to take his radio broadcasting course at Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology in suburban Etobicoke. The three-year course is the only total college radio broad- casting program in Canada, said Mr. Stone, a radio veteran. And he'd like to see more fe- males take an interest in it. "Girls probably don't realize that good opportunities are available to them in he said. A recent check he made of five Ontario stations confirmed his belief that in radio women have equal opportunity in terms of money and promotion in posi- tions such as news reporting, promotion and public relations, copywriting, lime selling, as traffic managers (arranging schedules for commercials and as music librarians. Radio announcing, he admit- ted, is still predominantly a man's field. It's also the best- paying job in a big city station. But, said Mr. Stone, stations have indicated to him that if lis- teners demand women announ- cers that's what they'll get, "At present it seems listeners, particularly daytime women lis- teners, want to listen to he says. "But I think today's woman is almost ready to listen to another woman. "If I owned a Toronto radio station I would give a bright woman an afternoon program to deal with the issues of the day." The Humber College course costs a year. The first two years are devoted to announcing techniques, radio production, business management, music and sound, interviewing tech- niques and other basic skills. The final year is given over to specialization. The course, which demands Grade 12 as an entrance re- quirement, began last year. Thirty men have applied for next fall's course, and Mr. Stone now has closed male ap- plications. However, he is holding "a few" places open for women. A Commentary By HARRY SCHVVARTZ New York Times Service NEW YORK Is the Krem- lin Coalition that unseated Mki- ta Khrushchev nine years ago finally beginning to break up? If so, the unusual quiet that has ruled in the publicly visible por- tion of the Soviet political scene since 1964 may give way to a new era of dramatic political collisions, not unlike those of the decade after 1947. These possibilities are raised by a remarkable article that has just appeared in Commun- ist of the Ukraine, the theoreti- cal and political journal of the Ukrainian Communist Party. The article is a vigorous public assault upon the ideological and political orthodoxy of Pyotr Y. Shelest, who, so far as is known, is still a member of the Politburo cf the Soviet Com- munist Party and the deputy premier of the Soviet Union. Shelest world attention last May when ha suddenly lost his job as first secretary of the Ukrainian Communist Parly and was shifted to the lesser post of deputy premier of the Soviet Union in Moscow. The timing of Shelest's demo- tion just before President Nixon arrived in Moscow produced widespread specula- tion that he a hardliner United States mining of Hanoi Harbor. But aside from the of- ficial announcements of Shel- est's change of jobs, nothing was said in Moscow last year that would cause him to lose face or prestige. The article that has now ap- peared in the Ukraine is of a very different matter. It may well bs the most serious at- tack on a member of the ruling Kremlin Coalition to appear in a Soviet periodical since the Brezhnev leadership took over. It is hard to believe that Shelest can long remain in the Polit- buro in the wake of this attack. Entitled, "Concerning The Serious Faults and Errors Of One the article is an editorial condemning Shelest's Book, "0 Ukraine, Our Soviet published in Kiev in 1970 when he was Ukrainian pariy chief. In the period following publication, as the article notes, t'ue book was abundantly prais- leaves the door open for such a charge later. Shelest's book is accused of diminishing the role of the communist parly, giving the Ukrainians alone too much credit for the economic develop- ment of the Ukraine, encourag- ing Ukrainian economic aut- archy, and disseminating in the Ukraine "a feeling of com- placency, a spirit of self-flat- tery and conceit." Even the book's descriptions of the Ukraine's natural beauty are objected to as tending to "in- tensify the feeling of self-satis- faction end self-esteem that permeates this book from start to finish." There could hardly ba a mere sensitive domestic accu- sation in the Soviet Union thai the charge that the man who ruled the Ukraine for roughly a decade was really sympath- etic to Ukrainian nationalism. There are Ukrainians about 40 million Soviet Union, souslity' cult. Now, the official view is that the book is ideolo- gically incompetent, harmful and most sinister of all gives aid and comfort to Ukrainian nationalism which opposes the blending of all So- viet peoptes into one homogen- eous Soviet Nation. The editor- had opposed going through ial condemnation stops just v.-itb the Nixon invitation to! short of labelling Shelest a Moscow in the v.-afce of the Bourgeoise nationalist, but it or tear.'

The Ukraine it- self, whose population is a com- pkx conglomeration, is one of the key sectors of over-all So- viet economic, political and sci- entific strength. Moreover, the fact that signi- ficant grass roots nationalism persists among Ukrainians is by now well established. At one level, this nationalism is rep- resented by a group of intellec- tuals such men as Ivan Dzyuba and Vyacneslav Cnor- i novil who are still being per- jsecuted for their opinions. Hie Soviet drive against these Ukrainian nationalists the last yvrsr and a half has not re- ceived much attention in the west. Even more is the fact that there is widespread resentment amons ordinarv Ukrainians believe them- selves to second-class citizenship. Many key in the Ukraine are held by Qv> Russians, and the Ukrainian language and culture are ac- corded inferior status to Rus- sian culture and language, even m many parts of the particularity in the cities. Thus the issue of Ukrainian nationalism is potentially ex- plosive. Normally the Soviet government has tended to IHOT- nnze the probkm. claiming thai this nationalism is a political illness caused by ideological sent in by the Ukrainian communities of the west, part- icularly the United States and Canada.
