Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta HIGH FORECAST TUESDAY 85. VOL. LXIV No. 202 hbridgc Herald LETI1I3IITDGE, ALBKRTA, MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 1971 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SKCTIOXS 18 PAGES New example of generation gap conflict By CV FOX Canadian Press Slaff Writer The uproar over the Oz trial in London is inter- preted in some quarters as the latest example of what the convicted men termed the generation phrase which lias been resounding across the Western world for the last decade. Richard Neville, one of the Oz magazine editors sentenced to prison on obscenity charges, invoked this gap in warning Judge Richard Argyle, 55, about the consequences of inflicting tough treatment on the three editors. "You will show to the world that your generation, which appears to be listening with every courtesy, is in fact the 29-year-old Neville told Argyle. Other protagonists criticized what they called the excessively harsh prison sentences as "an act of re- venge by the establishment against dissenting Defenders of Argyle insisted that a stand had to be taken by authorities agaiiist the freedom in sexual mailers which, to Iheir minds, has become unbridled licence in rec-ent years. New values emerge It's certain that a vast set of cultural and social values has evolved in the West during the last two decades and tliat they are in direct conflict with the concepts of order and morality prevalent in this gen- eral area of the world. The new values emphasizing drugs, sexual free- dom and hostility to any thwarting or twisting of man's natural energies have burst out spectacularly of late. In the United Stales, they have afforded a powerful outlet to the bitter outcries against the Vietnam war, in- terpreted by protesters as typical of capitalist reliance on force as a way of maintaining supremacy at home and abroad Confronted wilh Vietnam and (lie revolutionary tendencies in some underdeveloped countries, the up- rush of pop music, experimental art and other varieties of defiant vmorlhndoxy took on a sharply political and violent hue in the U.S. and other Western conn tries. Vs not new i el, uespi.c Hit manifestations of the underground spirit on a variety of fronts, the over- all phenomenon is not as new as might appear. Ancient Oriental traditions account for some of it and the concept of a generation war if not a gener- ation gap was obsessive as a talking point as long ago as liie 1920s. The glorification of youth reflected in some as- pects of Ihe Oz trial has its roots in the romantic movcmcnls of Hie early 18th cenlury since when, in I be view ol some skeptical commentators, radicalism as a whole has been systematically indulged by power- ful forces in Western society. Witb many underground ideas deriving from mid- dle-aged thinkers and from publicly-supported under- takings such as television, the "gap" involving differ- ent age groups and the apparent conflict of "establish- ment" versus hippie-style rebels may not be as deep as I'ney seem. But such incidents as the Oz trial, in setting a stern spokesman for traditional Western values against high- ly-articulate representatives of an apparently opposing ideology, are occasions for intensified expressions of mutual hostility which are bound to focus attention on patterns of antagonism rather than on the prospects for eventual reconciliation. Teacher job market slow OTTAWA (CP) Would-be teachers will have a tougher lime linding jobs in an overflow job market in futiu-e, a Canada Manpower study shows. Alan W. Cowan, a department analyst, says in a recently published report Ibal Ihe persisling shortage of elementary and secondary school teachers of the last 10 years had probably ended. Instead the country is faced with a growing over- supply winch should continue for the balance of tho 1970s. The main reason for Ihe drop in job opportunities has been the declining birth rate over the last 15 years which has increasingly curtailed the growth of school enrolment. At Ihe same time, the number of teachers has teen rapidly increasing. Individuals seeking teaching posts in Uie 1970s can expect lo encounter highly competitive conditions, says Mr. Cowan. Classes smaller Difficulties faced by new Icachers in finding work have been partly lessened by Uic sleady reduction in the average number of pupils per class over the past five years. The surplus of Icachers applies lo mosl parLs ot Ihc country even in the Nurlli. However, Iliere is a need for specialists in French, art, music, special education and physical education. The number of olemcnlary school Icachers, who represent about Iwo-llurds o( all Icachers, may actual- ly begin lo decline Ibis fall, while the grotvlli of teachers in secondary schools should not end for at least an- other five years, The ligblor job market has increased the Ircnd toward higher qualifications for Icnchcrs.

"The battle is inevitable" un- a solution is reached, he told the 230-mcmber central committee of Ihe Arab Socialist Union, Egypt's sole political parly, at a meeting Sunday.

The Northern Ireland capital was still a battle zone after se- curity forces rounded up an es- timated 300 suspec'.ed terrorists under newly-announced emer- gency internment measures. BUR.V STORES, OFFICES Shootings, arson and rioling also were reported in London- derry and the border town of Nowry Army reinforcements were flown to Newry by helicop- ter after rioters set fire lo stores and offices. The bitter fighting was an ap- parent backlash to the intern- ment measure announced ear- lier in the day by Prime Minis- ter Brian Faulkner. He said he woidd sign orders for1 the deten- tion without trial of all those v.ho were thought lo pose a seri- ous and continuing threat to public order and safety. The action was clearly aimed at militant factions of the out- lawed Irish Republican Army, who have claimed responsibility foi many of the slayings, raids and acts of sabotage that have brought a total of British peacekeeping soldiers lo Ulster. Faulkner also slapped a six- month ban on sectarian proces- the cause of Roman Catholic-Protestant clashes. A Belfast police spokesman confirmed that more than 300 persons had been picked up on internment orders. The spokesman refused lo dis- close where the suspects were being held, but (here have been reports of camps being readied to take detainees. SIX-MONTH BAN Faulkner's ban on parades meant that the Protestant Ap- prentice Boys of Deny, sched- uled to march Thursday in cele- bration 'if victory over Roman Catholics in 16B3, would not be able to take to the streets. The ban is in effect for six months. Unofficial reports said those caplured today included the en- tire executive council of the Civil Rights Association if Northern Ireland, all but one leader ot the Leftisi People's Democracy, the student group that launched Bernadette Dev- lin's successful campaign for Parliament, and members of re- publican clubs. Arrested persons may be held 4o hours, and police may gel exlensioi.5 on this. Within 12 days an internment order has lo be issued or the arrested person freed. The internees are to be kept at Belfast prison on Crumliii Road.
