Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Little hotel construction gets backing PARIS (AP) The French government has decided there's long-term virtue in the flea bag hotels of Paris. After five years of offering special financial inducements to builders of plastic palaces, the state hotel credit agency is cutting off incentives to the deluxe hostelries and for the first time offering subsidies to anyone who will put up the kind of a hotel a tour- ist can afford. The long Easter weekend showed what brought the change. The Eitz and the George V had plenty of space, but about of the city's 000 visitors slept in cars or pub- lic buildings, or at inns as far as 75 miles from Paris. The little hotels, the friendly flea bags that traditionally han- dled most of the budget tourist trade, are dying at the rate of about 20 a year. Their owners, who need 80 per cent occupancy year-round to make money, of- ten find it easier to sell out to real estate developers who turn the buildings into offices or apartments. "So a government tourist office official said at this time last year. "You just can't hold back progress. Why, a lot of those little hotels were sordid little places really." But the government hotel pol- icy came under attack. The big, new hotels were described as charmless and without anything specificaBy Parisian. Under the new government decree, a rebate of will be offered for every new hotel room built in the lowest price category, which until this month got no rebate at all.

Federal and state politicians are debating a wide variety of bills that would give reporters School unit must pay teacher REGINA (CP) The Mooso- niin School Unit has been or- dered to pay dismissed teacher Margaret Gordon back salary she would have received had she completed the 1972 school year in the board's employ. A board of reference, appoint- ed by Education Minister (ior- don MacMurchy in June, has found that Mrs. Gordons distri- bution of copies of the Van- couver underground newspaper, Georgia Saraight, "was not tantamount to gross miscon- duct." The teacher was fired Oct. 4, 1971 but had been under con- tract to the school unit board until the end of the 1972 school year. In his argument to the board of reference in January, Mrs. Gordon's counsel, Ross Wimnier of Regina, said the amount of salary due to Mrs. Gordon was PRESERVATIVE Although unstated for food preservation, formaldehyde was once used as a pr milk. rvative for partial or complete immunity from being forced to disclose sources of confidential informa- tion. The judiciary committee of the House of Representatives ended hearings last month on the subject of reporters' privi- lege and a subcommittee headed by Congressman Rep. Robert Kastenmeier (Dem. Wis.) has met twice to try to reach a consensus. The Senate judiciary subcom- mittee on constitutional rights, headed by Senator Sam -Ervin (Dem. also held lengthy hearings last month, but has taken no action. Most of the bills fall into two basic categories. One group provides reporters with unqual- ified immunity from testifying about their sources before any grand jury or legislative inves- tigation; the other offers lim- ited immunity. In the House, foi example, a bill co-sponsored by five Re- publicans would provide abso- lute privilege for reporters with regard to investigative proceed- ings before government agencies, federal grand juries or congressional communities. MAKES EXCEPTIONS It would provide only limited privilege in civil or criminal proceedings in federal courts. Reporters could Ije required to disclose confidential informa- tion or sources if the court found the material was relevant to a significant issue in the case and could not be obtained else- where. Another House bill would give professional reporters unqual- ified protection from federal or state court orders to reveal con- fidential news sources or infor- mation. The American Newspaper Publishers Association and' other press groups have urged approval of an unqualified shield law. Congressional sources say, however, that chances for such a measure are slim. "I don't believe Congress will pass an unqualified privilege Senator Ervin has said. The United States Supreme Court ruled last year that the First Amendment to the con- stitution, dealing with free speech, does net give reporters a special exemption from testi- fying before a grand jury about information gained in con- fidence. Several reporters have gone to jail for contempt of court rather than disclose their sources.
