Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta I Marriage Sexes Laws Go Against Constitution Friday, August M, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HEUAID 3 OUT-OF-TOWNEKS, cur- rently at tlic Paramount Cinema, suggests the old say. ing about toothaches: they're nice to have because it feels so good when they go away. In this case, flic toothache is New York, and for two naive visitors, Ihe best thing about it is leaving. George and Gwen Kellcrman (Jack Lemmon and Sandy Deii- nis) discover that half the pain is getting there. George, an executive on the rise, plans ta combine an evening on the town with a morning interview for an important job. Preceding the interview, there will be a sumptuous din- ner, dancing, settling into a fabulous room at the Waldorf- Astoria, etc. But between Ohio and the "jewel city" lie a few small in- conveniences. The Kennedy Airport is overscheduled and the Kellerman's flight is re- routed to Boston. An over- crowded train, which hits New York at 2 in the morning, serves only peanut butter sand- wiches (only on The luggage is lost. The hotel reservation is lost. George and Gwcn get lost. About the only thing that isn't lost is garbage, left by a salutation strike to turn streets into miniature Rockies. The subways, cabs and buse are on strike so George an Gwen run, run, run, stoppin only long enough to be robbet mugged, kidnapped, cursed b. picketers and almost internee for pei-version in Central Park Their pride disappears wit their money: breakfast consist, of a box of Cracker Jacks let behind by a dog, Son of tb Hound of the Baskervilles. The Out-Of-Towners is often an hilarious movie, condensing as it does all the turmoil man JACK LEMMON is heir to in coping with mod- ern inconveniences and social problems. It reflects the knowing eye of writer Neil Simon, reputed- ly the highest paid playwright in the lu'story of U.S. theatre. But Simon's efforts to show the whirlwind at its worst lead T ASH f r TOLLI ASHPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. to highly improbable situations, ones which drag at the. film even though the stars are mov- ing at frenzy pace. Lemmon carries the movie, using his consistent (perhaps, redundant) depiction of a man born to contusion and living in frustration. Sandy Dennis Oh-My-God's her way through, less method- acting than usual, but treated rather indifferently by Uie play- wright. Cactus Flower and The Out-Of- Towners have the same perky dialogue and uptempo, style, Cactus Flower may be the bet- ter film, but still what do you do when your front tooth lias fallen apart, and you start a job interview with, "Good morning, s s sir." How the West Was Won, the College Mall Cinema, four or five years old and ju: about as long. A saga of U.S. pioneers, from woodsmen to cattle barons, is dedicated to the suppositio Jiat if one western is good, whole bunch of them tied t< Aether, would he zowie. Following the lives of foil jeneralions of a single familj lie movie stars Henry Fond; James Stewart, Debbie Re. nolds, Carroll Baker. Gcorg Peppard, Gregory Peck, an more. You name them; Ho' the West Was Won has go them. The first third of the moyi contains an exciting shooting o the rapids, and the last thirc a bison stampede caught in kind of circular straight line by the cinerama technique. And parents may be gratifiec that the movie has a familj rating. But most episodes of TV: Guiismoke are superior. LOCAL: The Allied Art: Council has proposed a festiva of one-act plays to groups from Lethbridge and district, but no many are taking advantage o it. _ One script has been tumei in; a few local groups have in dicated interest; another is in rehearsal for the festival.

The choir will sing for 30 minutes before a live au- dience at the University of Cal- gary Myra Breckinridgc, universally panned by critics as a movie of incredibly bad taste, has been rejected by the Alberta Motion Picture Board and the Appeal board Nothing stings and smarts as much as a letter to the editor, critical of a review, when the letter-writer and the reviewer agree. Such appears to be the case about the movie Wood- stock. There wasn't a single line in the review meant, to be critical of the movie. As a pro- tile of a rock festival, one doubts moviegoers will see a documentary of such excel- lence again. C'est la vie.

LOUIS (AP) The American B a r Association was told Monday that laws re- quiring marriage partners to be of different sexes go against Ihe U.S. Constitution. The statement was made during a panel discussion on women's liberation and the constitution by Rita G. Hau- ser. U.S. representative to the United Nations Human Rights Commission. "Legal distinction on the basis of sex is no longer rea- sonable, and I am willing to apply that view to any and all circumstances the that view, I submit, is no longer consistent with fact." "I am not urging this as a social policy. Rather 1 am arguing that the right to marry, a right guaranteed by Jaw, cannot bn premised on sex distinctions which serve to deny equal protection of the law to all persons, whatever their tastes in life may be.''

Phone 327-3M8 Plant Layoff Slated EDMONTON (CP) About 10 employees of CHemcell Ltd.'s Edmonton plant will be laid off because of the sagging Canadian economy and in- creasing competition from im- ports. C. S. Malone, president and chairman, said Thursday the decision was made after an ex amination of the firm's opera- t i o n in light of current econ- omic trends. More than 130 em- ployees are being laid off at North Pipelines Guidelines Set its Montreal plant. Chemcell's Edmonton plant produces synthetic textile fi- bres, cigarette filters and mcthanol, a natural gas by- product used in solvents and antifreeze. "We are convinced the steps are necessary to offset the ad- verse trends which now exist in h a general Mr. Malone said. The layoffs will occur as per- sonnel finish their assignments and usually are made accord- ing to seniority. Holland G. Frakes of Mon- treal, vice-president of Chem- cell, .said the firm is helping personnel find other jobs. He said the firm's net sales in the three months ended June 30 were a IG-per- cent drop from sales of 224.000 during the same period of 1963. OTTAWA (CP) The federal government announced Thurs- day a series of guides for the fu- ture construction of oil and gas jipelines in the North, govern- ng pollution control, Canadian ownership and employment of northern residents. Industry Minister J. J. Greene and Northern Develop- ment Minister Jean Chretien told a joint news conference major oil and gas companies lave expressed an interest in constructing pipelines. But ini- ially only one trunk line each 'or oil and gas in the North would be permitted. A "corridor" for the initial lipelines would be established at a future date. In a formal statement, the ministers said the guides will apply to all pipelines tapping oil and gas resources north of the 60th degree of latilude in the Yukon and Northwest Territo- ies and in Alaska.
