Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 21, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD-43 Priceless archeologicalpieces found Royal PEKING (AFP) Military maps which are the oldest known to exist in China and ancient manuscripts are among archeological discoveries made at Ma Wang Tui, near Changsha in the province of Hunan, the official Chinese newspaper People's Daily reports. The newspaper says the dis- coveries were made in two tombs dating from the begin- ning of the Western Han dy- nasty (206 BC to 1 One manuscript was entitled Annals of the Warring States. It was among 10 totalling Chinese characters, written on silk. A version of the oldest and most enigmatic Chinese book, the Yi Ching or Book of Changes, also was dis- covered. The book, based on the interpretation of 64 figures combining the positive and negative principles of "Yang" and has been the subject of Chinese philosophical discussions as old and obscure as the book itself. The People's Daily published several photographs of the manuscripts found in the tombs. It said one of them, entitled the Canon of Law (Jing gave a clear picture of the legal system during the days of the war- ring states (475-221 The Ma Wang Tui discoveries came amid a struggle against the philosophy of Confucius that began last February as a political campaign against the late defence minister, Lin Piao. The Chinese officially say that Lin died in an air crash two years ago. rver rescued S TATTTTT'TT W XXX A.

Telephone 328-9231 LONDON (AP) The aroma of the royal river was so ripe in Queen Victoria's day, the porters hung sheets dipped in chlorine from the tall windows of the Houses of Parliament, and pleasure boats operating from Westminister Pier went out of business. Now on sunny afternoons my noble lords and off-duty MPs sip their tea on a private lawn overlooking the Thames and hear how historic they are from loudspeakers on the sightseeing boats. In the rancid days of yore, this was hardly the spot for a spot of tea. When Henry VI's coffin was brought to Windsor Castle from the Tower of London, where he died in 1471, probably of murder, the attending monks on the funeral barge held their nostrils and "became queasy." Because of the reek of the river at ebb tide, James I threatened to move his court to Windsor, and Queen Anne toyed with the idea of transferring Parliament to Oxford. Little more than a decade ago, the tidal reaches of the Thames were so polluted no fish, except eels, could survive, and bait died on the hook. Birds deserted the banks and in the dry summer months, when it was normal for scientists to fail to detect any dissolved oxygen in the water, the river stank for weeks on end downstream of i Greenwich. Now seals loll on the mudflats off Gravesend. dolphins flipper past the I benign face of Big Ben and, as a large aquarium in the lobby of County Hall attests, about 70 species of fish test the I patience of small boys and old men dangling lines beneath the stone arched bridges that j sheltered Izaak Walton. Com- mercial fishing fleets are working the estuary, and thousands of ducks and j wading birds from the Soviet Union and Northern Europe, some not seen in 70 years, winter along the Thames. I The royal river now boasts of being the cleanest in Europe, cleaner than the Rhine, the Danube or the I Volga. The river has grown so healthy in recent years, yachtsmen complain of once again having to scrape J barnacles, which couldn't live thei e before. Water skiers and Sunday sailors have become a navigation hazard for busy barge traffic Father Thames, in his new j role as Mister Clean, draws I admirers from all over. A few months ago. Deputy Premier Takeo Miki of Japan was re- ceived by Queen Elizabeth at 1 Buckingham Palace, paid his respect at 10 Downing Street, j then set off to the land of his I heart's desire the sewage works at Mogden. He wanted to find out how the British did j it Several hundred school f. children got there ahead of him. Gov't urged a to protect _ farmers EDMONTON (CP) If the Alberta government is so worried about the plight of farmers who are faced with farm machinery firms failing to honor delivery contracts, why doesn't it do something about it. Bill Dascavich, Alberta region co-ordinator for the National Farmers Union asked yesterday. Mr. Dascavitch was commenting on a statement Aug 8 by Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer that farmers who signed contracts last winter for summer delivery of implements were being asked to pay increases up to in spite of the terms of their contracts. Dr. Homer said farmers have honored contracts for the delivery of their produce even though on occasion their returns were less than they could have received on the open market and industry should do the same. "Instead of just decrying the actions of the machinery manufacturers, the government should take some action to protect affected Mr. Dascavich said. lo, Anacin 100's Clairol Silk N Silver Hair Color 1.39 Knee Highs 3 Pair For Softique Bath Oil Beads Polident Tablets Economy Size Panty Hose First Quality One Size Fits All 2 Pair Ultra Ban Deodorant Spray 6 02.
