Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALP-11 Blimps bother British brass LONDON (Reuter) The biggest political issue of the moment in Britain appears to be whether the country is threatened by what some have called semi-secret groups of Colonel Blimps. Colonel Blimp, a famous cartoon figure during the Second World War, was a reactionary retired military officer who thought British society was going to the dogs. As cartoonist David Low, his creator, saw him, the old guy was against the modern world, labor un- ions, dissolution of empire and anything that was not British, including garlic. Well, 29 years after the war, some British politicians think Colonel Blimp is time supporting a couple of vol- unteer organizations head- ed by real-life military of- ficers who claim to be ready to save the country from industrial anarchy. And, spokesmen in the governing Labor party say, the groups' activities are being condoned, if not ac- tually supported, by the op- position Conservative par- ty Roy Mason, a junior minister in the defence department, charged Thursday night that the groups are "extreme Fas- cist and Nazi-like factions" trying to overthrow democratic government. Mason named Col. David Stirling, organizer of the newly-revealed Great Bri- tain 75 group, and Gen. Sir Walter Walker, a former NATO general and head of the Unison movement. Both organizations say they would be ready to run essential services in the event of a general strike in the strike-plagued country. Mason also charged that Conservatives are either allied to the two groups or condoning them. The charge was disputed Fri- day by party Chairman William Whitelaw, who said he thinks Mason is over-reacting in an absurd manner. Whitelaw said he does not take the new groups very seriously, but Mason charged that the groundswell of reaction from the country's Colonel Blimp-types has appeared because Conservatives are frustrated by their party's failure to control events when last in government. Mason's a time when most Briton's think a fall election will be also denounc- ed by Stirling who said his group's purpose would be to reinforce parliamentary authority. Both organizations are opposing what they con- sider to be the chief weakness of modern Brit- ish strong labor unions. The woman's angle as seen by women TORONTO (CP) Improvement of the status of women largely depends on an expanding economy, Nancy Howell, sociology professor at the University of Toronto, said Friday. Prof. Howell said in an interview that job oppor- tunities will increase in a growing economy, creating more chances for ad- vancement of women. But she questioned whether the economy will remain strong. Prof Howell was one of two sociologists at the World Con- gress of Sociology interviewed on the status of women in Can- ada and the United States. The other was Prof Suzanne Keller, of Princeton University, Princeton, N.J. Prof Howell, educated in the United States, said she feels women students in Canada are not as aware of their rights as their American counterparts. A small minori- ty of women were involved in women's liberation groups But she said this may be be- cause there is little dis- crimination against women in Canadian colleges. The situa- tion might change when the students entered the com- petitive labor market While women tak little about their position in society, their actions indicate a change, she said The marriage rate and the birth rate were both declining REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY Service Writers, Body Mechanic Mechanics Apply to BRUCE SCHWEIGERT SERVICE MANAGER KING CHRYSLER DODGE LTD.
