Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta TH8 UTHBRIDCe HERALD April 75, 1973 Stay away tvarns the Mr. and Mrs. A pair of Canada geese give a warning as a photo- talkative pair have chosen an old tire as their nest and grapher gets too close to their nest on a farm near jsalously guard the six eggs in it. Goderich, about 40 miles northwest of London. The Canadds Fort Lauderdale Invasion planned by youth SAUBLE BEACH, Ont (CP) Carrying tents and sleeping bags, or renting cot- tages, students will arrive at Sauble Beach this coming Vic- toria Day weekend May 19-21 as they have in years past. The small resort town, on Lake Huron 18 miles west of Owen Sound, attracted an es- timated students last year, turning it into a some- what improbable Fort Lauder- dale of the north. Seven miles of wide sandy beach probably started the in- flux and tradition has done the rest. University students from Kingston, Toronto, Guelph and Waterloo and area high school students all turn spend the last holiday before summer begins. Some residents and cottage owners resent this early inva- sion, before the tourist season is ripe. They don't like bellow- ing motorcycles, students sleeping and drinking beer on the beach. Others warmly defend the students. "They're not hurting any- one. T h e r e's always someone trying to blackball the beach always some- one yakking and giving the beach bad said a cottage renter and Sauble Beach native "And they don't sleep on the beach in May. It's too cold." LEAVE LITTER Another cottager and To- ronto resident said they do sack out beneath the stars. For warmth, some students burn fences. One cottager noted that the students dine on the beach. "They left a terrible mess last year. If they're really supposed to be ecology- and pollution-conscious, there's no evidence of it. "They aren't destructive but they want to enjoy them- selves." This apparently means some want all the comforts of else's home when the beach house is closed. Twice last year one Toronto resident's cottage was en- tered. On Victoria Day a door was broken and students used the bathroom. The secord time was during the summer when some vaca- tioners helped themselves to food and had a portable feast: two oiher homes were also hit for food and the Toronto resi- dent's dishes were found there. One resident complained about "an element of the drug situation." Corp. Ron Love, of the Guelph detachment of the On- tario Provincial Police who has been in charge of Sauble Beach in past vacation pe- riods, said there is some drug use, mostly marijuana and hashish. A few young people who took an overdose of LSD or MDA were treated at hos- pital in nearby Southampton. He said an invasion by students is a conservative es- timate for last Victoria Day weekend's celebrants. When the numbers get too high or "if police are required" the 12-man force on duty is in- creased to 30 or so from area detachments. He said break-ins are rare. There is considerable beer drinking en the beach and stu- dents caught with open beer botlles spend part of their hol- iday in Southampton for a court hearing. Motorcycles are allowed in the southern part of the beach, owned by the Ojibway Indians as part of their re- serve. The northern end is owned by Amabel Township and the vehicles are forbddde is sleeping on tht beach. Israel makes big plans times the normal speed. The planes just came and went, came and went. In six days it was over." Israel lost 803 men in the war, the Arabs about Israel emerged holding square miles of Arab Jordan, part of Syria, the Gaza Strip and the entire Sinai Peninsula with its Egyptian oil wells. Fighting resumed in 1968 on the Suez Canal and the bor- ders, and Israel lost another 827 soldiers and civilians- With the ceasefire of 1970, most of the guns fell silent. Since then Israelis have had time and leisure to look more closely at themselves. They were shocked to hear of war profiteering. Colossal waste was disclosed in gov- ernment enterprises. Israel's plan to become an automo- bile-producing country col- lapsed in a contro- versy. Young couples wbo fought in the army complain that new immigrants are given housing while they can't find or pay for a place to live. Oth- ers grumble that taxes in their Socialist the heaviest in the not fairly spread between the poor z'il the well-to-do. Black Panther agitators claim Israel discriminates against Oriental per cent of the favor of Jews of Western de- scent and the Russian immi- grants now coming at the rate of 3.000 a month. Ovadia Sadik, a Baghdad- born garbageman lives in Tel Aviv's H a t i k v a o p quarter with his wife and five children. "We have been living in this hut for 23 years." he says. "We have no sewage system, the road outside isn't paved, rats used to chew my son's hand while he slept and I can- not afford to send my children to high school. Some boys on the street are in jail. "The everything, but the government ignores us." With the new prosperity, crime, prostitution and drugs are on the increase. Friction grates between Orthodox Jews and non-religious Is- raelis. Many Israelis seem more interested in acquiring new television sets or thorough- bred dogs or cars than pursu- ing the ideals that built a na- tior. from near-desert. "I am sad and worried to see how materialistic the young people and adults have says Donia Rosen. Avishai Amir admits the de- terioration, but contends: "People want to live good lives because we are sick of living in tension. Most of us hold two jobs to make ends meet. "Peace will come eventu- ally and then everything will improve." Israel's main challenge at 25 is to attain peace with the Arabs. Militarily, they know Israel can defend itself, but a peace agreement seems no closer than it was 25 years ago. Nominations 1o of Governors Colour your scene Hawaiian with 'Aloha" exclusive sun-set.
