Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta South Troops Attempt To Hurl Back Reds SAIGON (AP) -South Viet namese troops supported by United Slates planes battlec Tuesday to hurl back aboui North Vietnamese soldiers tlireatcning an artillery and pa- trol camp near Laos. Giant B-52 bombers, each carrying 30 tons of bombs, were joined by fighter-bombers anc rocket-firing helicopters in raids that left a line of chaired, twisted trees along the moun- tain ridges around the camp- code-named O'Reilly and manned by South Vietnamese. South Vietnamese, encamped a half mile south of the base 27 miles west of Hue, beat off a ground attack Tuesday, killing 15 Communist troops. One gov- ernment soldier was killed and four were wounded. An estimated five battalions, elements of three North Viet- namese regiments, were re- ported massed around O'Reilly trying to repeat their success of last month, when they drove U.S. 101st Airborne Division troops from artillery base Rip- cord four miles to the south. Ripcord and O'Reilly are among a string of bases block- ing North Vietnamese infiltra- tion routes from Laos through the uninhabited mountains to the populous coastal lowlands to the east. "We believe we are facing the same troops who attacked Rip- Col. Nguyen Van Diem, the regimental commander, told Associated Press correspondent Willis Johnson. "The enemy is trying to move into the lowlands step by step." Pressure against O'Reilly began building up during the Charter Flights Popular last week. Heavy fighting broke out three days ago when two South Vietnamese infantry com- panies were surrounded on a ridge just to the west. Despite heavy bombing ajid shelling, the North Vietnamese prevented reinforcements from linking up with the stranded companies. The government troops were attacked by mortars, rocket grenades and flame throwers, but finally slipped from the ridge early Monday and moved to a new position where their dwindling supplies of food an ammunition were replenished. In Cambodia, Communi forces struck for the thh straight night at the bele guercd town of Saang, 18 mile south of Phnom Penh, but Cam bodian air force fighter-bom ers drove them back, a spoke man said. The Communists have bee making a series of ground i vestigations over the last wee to test the outer defences Phnom Penh, some of them only five miles from the capita Youth Column Young Volunteers Help Families OTTAWA (CP) Bureau of Statistics reported Tuesday people fled the Canadian winter in the first quarter of 1970 on charter flights to the Caribbean, Mexico and South America. Another passengers took charter flights to the Pa- cific. The figures were revealed in a survey of internatipnal charter flights begun by DBS last Jan. 1. Bulletins on charter flights will appear quarterly. The survey shows that of the passengers flying south departed from Toronto. Another left from Vancouver. On the Pacific to left from Van- couver. Edmonton sent charter passengers and Toronto But the most popular destina- tions for charter flights in the Jamiary-to-Mareh period were in Europe: passengers took charter flights to European cities. Of those took off from Toronto, from Montreal and from Vancouver. Charter flights to the United States carried passen- gers. Flights to Tokyo took passengers. EDMONTON (CP) The sometimes-tarnished image of youth is being polished these days by a group of volunteers who try to help families through their troubles. "It's a real said Mary Lou MacNeil, 18. "We were really shocked when we became involved. "We never knew that fami- lies in Edmonton would be liv- ing without plumbing. Or that a little boy could get gangrene because no one looked after a cut on his foot." Mary Lou and a group of her friends became involved in the Youth Involvement Pro- gram and she says that while "we can't do much, we can help." And help they do, says Alice Bartell, 25, who runs the pro- gram's office and arranges for volunteers. She has about 250 students, ranging in age from 16 to the early 20s, who help families in any way they can. GO ON OUTINGS "During the winter, the vol- unteers tutor children who are having difficulty in said Mrs. Bartell. "Others just take families on outings, often to places where they wouldn't normally the library, art gallery or mu- seum. "Sometimes they just take them to a show or go skating. They become a friend of the family and help out where they can. They drive them around, help with job hunting, do some baby-sitting for fami- lies which otherwise couldn't afford it. That type of work is where they really help." Edmonton's Youth Involve- ment Program was started in 1967. It is run by a liJ-member board which has its largest representation from student its chair- man who is a student. KIDS GIVE ACTIVELY T w o full-time employees work in a one-room office. The Alberta government prov- ided a grant for the last 15 months of operation. This pays tie office rent and salaries and provides for a short orientation program for recruits. Mrs. Bartell said she thinks many youngsters join the pro- gram because they don't like being "passive receivers ol everything." "They get too much of al- most everything given to them. By helping as volun- teers they are actively giving. And they probably get more from the program than any- one else." Discussing the high school system, she said: "In many ways the educa- tion isn't relevant. There should be more opportunity for diversity of opinion. In schools they usually only get one slant of things. At least here they see another side." New Leather Waterproof For Life LONDON (AP) A proc essed leather which remains waterproof until the shoes or eoats made from it wear out even if the owner sends' them t< the dry-cleaners, has been in vented at Leeds University. Shoes which never become soaked and jackets which are impervious to rain probably wil in British shops within two years. Britain's National Research Development Corp. which has li- censed the process to a special- st firm of leather workers, Y. B. Bavon Ltd., also believes the jroduct will be widtety exported :o boost Britain's earnings from he fashion trade. The inventor is Stanley Briggs, supervisor of the experi- mental tannery of the depart- ment of food and leather sci- ences at the university. Most waterproofing processes or leather depend on coating hem with a waterproof com- pound which vanishes during ry-deaning. The new process makes the leather fibres them- i selves waterproof.

The highest percentage of in- coms retained was recorded for Sough Africa, with 89. The United States was fifth with 82 par cent. The two lowest on the list were Sweden and STew Zealand, both showing 59. The survey, seventh in an an- nual series, was made by Asso- ciated Industrial Consultants Ltd. Itself a subsidiary of the American firm Leasco, AIC has a Canadian branch known as Inbucon Services Ltd. of To- ronto. It found that Canada was IGth among 26 nations measured for ccst-of-living increases suffered between 1363 and October, 1969. The cost of living was found by AIC to have risen 23 per cent during that period in Canada, as against 29 per cent in Britain and 22 per cent in the U.S. Topping the list was Brazil with an increase of 823 per cent in the six-year period. Three Women Die In Crash _ Wednesday, Auguit 15, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 17 Moon Shots Said Waste Of Money OTTAWA (CP) Dr. Freder- ick Dainlon, chairman of Brit- ain's council on science policy, said Tuesday Hie United States moon landings were exhilarat- ing but a "colossal waste of money." "If I were a citizen of the United States my money would have gone to other he said at a news conference. Dr. Dainton is in Ottawa for meetings with officials of the Science Council of Canada and National Research Council sci- entists. Speaking of chemical and bi- ological warfare research, Dr. Dainton said he is personally opposed to it. "I would not wish to work in area. It is a matter of con- science with me.'' He added: "One scientist's view in this matter is worth no more than that of an ordinary citizen." Control of such re- search was up to politicians. Scientists had to supply accur- ate information to the politi- cians and the electorate so they could make responsible deci- sions. The educational system had to be improved so that people would have a good science grounding and be better pre- pared to evaluate such as the birth-control pill and effects. the San Rafael Courthouse Friday. Four persons were kil- led, including the presiding judge. Photo by Jim Kean, staff photographer the Sun Rafael Independent Journal. CARLYLE, Sask. (CP) Three women were killed when the car in which they were travelling came into collision with a semi-trailer truck near this town 125 miles southeast of Regina. Dead are Mrs. Edwin Dyer, 26, of Estevan, Sask. and her sisters in law, Marlene Dyer, 17, and Mrs. Alvin Dyer, J9, both of Carlyle. Driver of the truck. Jack Minty of Hegina, was unin- jured. The AIC noted a different pat- tern of development for the sal- aries of management officials in Canada as against other coun- tries. "The increases in Canadian managers' pay have fluctuated with the economy, unlike those in Britain, Australia and South the organization said. One of its spokesmen said the increases for the latter three countries have been "fairly con- sistent" at between five per cent and seven per cent an- nually. The fluctuations in Canada re- flect the level of industrial ac- tivity more thai) in other coun- tries, the AIC official said. He! attributed this lo the use of "profit-related renumberation" in Canada.
