Anne once wrote in an essay, "A feeling of contentment, of being in the hands of Ihe fates or the elements." What she hates most is gel- ting hemmed in by photogra- phers or listening lo vacuous remarks a', a formal function. Anne is fourth in line to Ihe throne and is fated to stand on ceremony all her life. Anne has inherited the forthright temperament o f Prince Philip but seems not to have acquired her mother's stamina for enduring the most long drawn-out royal occa- sion. The result is that her displeasure sometimes shows through. In Washington last year she complained: "I cannot stand having 10 million press people on my heels all the Lime. I just cannot stand it." When she visited Australia, the weight of her schedule wore down her resilience. To a woman who remarked it was a pity the rain had been Anne snapped back: it's stopped now, so what are you worrying To a photographer who said "can you turn this way. Anne replied: "I am not your love. I am your royal highness." Anne Likes dancing in disco- theques, going to parties, lis- tening to music and visiting the theatre or cinema, as well as swimming, tennis, camping and climbing. She dislikes cooking, won't wear hot pants and doesn't think much of women's lib. Launching ships, laying foundation stones and opening public buildings are all part of her regular round. On opening a girls' hostel in London once Anne said she couldn't understand why poo pie wanted lo come lo London in the first place, especially on the off-chance of getting a dreaiy job. Another lime she opened a new lown hall and gaped in bafflement at Ihe modernistic, stainless steel statuary out- side the building. "What is it supposed to she asked the uncomfortable arfis'.. .Although she dislikes hof- panls and vows never lo wear them, Anne is fond of mini- skirts and floppy hats for for- mal wear. Otherwise she is happy in jeans and jerkins. The Beatles and James Bond books are high on her list of likes. The great love of Anne's life is still riding. She trains hard and is better at it than any- body else in her family. She is even being described as good i enough for the equesliian 1 Olympics in 1972. I PRINCESS ANNE Horse lover Strom blames Ottawa for plight EDMONTON (CP1 Prem- ier Harry Strom Monday ac- cused the federal government of "callous indifference" lo the well-being of the farmer and his family. Mi'. Strom said in a news re- lease thai tlie Social Credit par- ty will not sit idly watching federal government policy "which aims at the destruction of the farm family and Ihe despoliation of the rural com- munity." Referring to Ottawa's pro- posed farm consolidation pro- gram, he said Jt is "nmvjsc and unfair for the federal govern- ment to pursue a policy which, if it succeeds, will mean mis- ery, dislocation and increased Open fires banned in national parks CALGARY (CP) The na tional parks branch Monday banned open tires in Banff, Voho and Kootenay national parks because of an "extreme- ly high forest fire hazard." In Jasper, 240 miles west of Eclmonlon, all hiking trails were closed and travel restrict- ed lo highways and secondary roads. The campfire restrictions do not apply to organized camp- grounds. "A travel and campfire re- slriclion may have to be im- posed on all mountain parks the fire hazard continues to It. P. Malis. western regional director of tlie parks branch, said, "Weather forecasts for all areas show no relief from the j present hot, dry conditions." I DANGER EXTREME "Meanwhile, the department nf lands and forests reported the fire danger is extreme in the northwestern and southern por- tions of Alberta and high else- where. Open fires were banned in the Crowsnest, Bow River and Rocky Clearwater forest re- serves in central and southerrj Alberta. There were 37 fires burning in the province Monday, six out of control in the Footner Lake forest. The large.ct fire covered acres, while an- other was burning over 26.000 acies. One small fire, under control, was burning in the eastern sec- tion of Banff National Park. Five fises were, reported ID Yobo park., with four under con- trol. Two small fires in Revelstoke park and 11 in Wood Buffalo park on the Alberta-Northwest territories border were out of control. Four other fires in Wood Buffalo were under con- trol. Alphonse Kaskamin, a parks employee in Wood Buffalo, was killed Friday when the truck he was driving overturned on a highway between Fort Smith and Hay River. He was taking supplies to firefighters. Men refuse lo leave shipyard GLASGOW fAP) Scottish workers struggling to save their jobs with the virtually bankrupt Upper Clyde Shipbuilders con- sortium voted today to occupy the remaining ihree of the com- pany's four shipyards. Workers at the Scolstoun, Linthouse and Govan yards voted nl mass meetings to oc- cupy their divisions just as workers on the Clydcbank did 10 days ago. Upper Clyde, Ihe once proud builders of the Queen Elizabeth 2 and other limiiy liners, went inlo receivership last month when Britain's Conservative government refused lo lend more money. The government later announced plans to reor- ganize the firm on smaller lines, plans which will cost about men their jobs. Workers have since decided j Ihey will refuse to give irp their jobs, and occupy the yards in-! stead until die government j makes provision for them. I government expenditures on so- cial allowance." It would be far wiser to as- sure farmers the level of in- come needed to provide econo- mic security than lo drive Ihom, in Ihe name of efficiency, lo join Ihe ranks of tlie unem- ployed in the cities. Criticizing Ottawa inaclion, Mr. Strom said the failure of the federal government to rec- ognize the plight of the fam- ily farm "ensures that farm families will conlinue facing in- security and debt." Towns and villages also felt the pinch when the farmer did. Because the province's farm- ers had diversified production, with the help of Social Credit government policies, Alberta had not been as hard hit by the farm crisis as had its sister Prairie provinces. To help further, tlie premier said, the government will re- bate 25 per cent of crop insur- ance premiums to farmers and ensure that insurance is avail- able in all parts of the prov- ince. Mr. Strom said Opposition charges that Social Credit has done nothing to raise farm in- comes and preserve the family farm are not true. The government, he said, plans to almost double Ihe [unds of the Alberta Farm Pur- chase Board to million from 21 million. The board make! loans available lo young farm ers who want lo buy land. The loans provide up to 80 per cent of the purchase price and are epayable at low interest over a period. But only the federal govern- ment had the resources needed lo increase and stabilize farm prices. "The federal government should start helping the family farm. The best place to start would be with a two-price sys- tem for wheat. "It is high time that the fed- eral government also took a greater interest in the prices, distribution and selling of agri- cultural output." The Social Credit govern- ment, Mr. Strom said, undcr- slands the significance of the farm and its community. The news release was made available shortly after the pre- mier left the ciiy for a one-day election-campaign lour in Ihe province's Peace River country.
