Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 9, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PCs laud Trudeau, pan Stanfield MONTREAL (CP) - Tiis newly-formed Quebec Young Progressive Conservatives Student Confederation h.ere praised Prime Minister Tru-deau's "wise and courageous decision" in enacting the War Measures Act during Quebec's kidnapping crisis. In an announcement made by President Jacques Desroches, a student at the University of Montreal, the group said the position of Robert Stanfield, Conservative party leader, during the crisis "has been very unclear." "A national crisis is not the time to make political hay," Mr. Desroches said. "All political leaders should stand to gether and not criticize for the sake of criticism. "We can only respect and admire the wise and courageous decision taken by our prime minister, setting a new precedent in the annals of Canadian history for the battle against internal insurrection, anarchy and treason." M r. Desroche's statement came prior to an address by Mr. Stanfield, who told a fund-raising dinner that the Trudeau administration was guilty "of having created misery in Montreal, in Quebec City and elsewhere in Canada without valid reason," during the kidnap crisis. But in the same speech, Mr. Stanfield said he had backed the government in invoking the act "despite the irresponsible statements of some cabinet ministers, including Jean Marchand, and . . . despite the spate of government-inspired rumors whose clear goal was to destroy the reputation of prominent Quebecers." Lead soldiers march to sale LOND JN (CP) - A collection of miniature Canadian military figures goes on sale here Dec. 10 as part of an army of lead soldiers which is expected to attract bids from many parts of the world. Once a staple of the nursex-y cupboard, toy soldiers have been promoted in recent years to the status of collectors' items, especially those of Edwardian or Victorian vintage depicting long-vanished r e g i-ments. The Canadian figures in the auction at Phillips, Son and Neale include seven Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry ; four RCMP in summer uniforms; four Governor-General's Horse Guards; two foot guards and mounted officer. Another boxed set by the same maker, the English firm of Britains, comprises six marching RCMP, two others mounted and eight Governor-General's foot guards. The auctioneers expect the first set to sell for about �15 ($37.50) and the second for about �10 ($25). Battery device assists police in the dark SPRINGFIELD, M a s s. (AP) - A battery operated device that can amplify light up to 48,000 times to turn night into day may help swing the pendulum of peril more in favor of police. The new device can project on to its own screen a television-like image of what it spots in the dark. It can also be used with cameras to take pictures for evidence. Called Star-Tron, it was developed by the General Ordnance Equipment Corp. of Pittsburgh, Pa., a member of the Smith and Wesson Law Enforcement Group. Smith and Wesson is introducing the device to police departments as a means of nighttime observation. The device does not need complicated infra-red light or detectable spotlights. It can l>e adjusted for changes in light, magnification and range, officials said. They said it has a basic sight range similar to that of the human eye in daylight and can amplify the lowest intensity light. The sale also includes portrait figures of King Edward VII- minus his horse-Edward VIII as Prince of Wales in naval uniform and as colonel of the Welsh Guards. Soldiers of many different eras will march across the auctioneer's desk, from Roman times through the battle of Agincourt, the Napoleonic wars, the Boer War of 1899-1902 to the present day. Br i t a i n's imperial era is evoked by sets of Bengal Lancers, Skinner's Horse and Bombay Native Infantry and there are also a number of historic Balkan regiments from the early years of the century. Most of the figures in the sale were made by Britains, the leading English firm in this field. Britains stopped making the traditional lead soldiers four years ago and turned to plastic, which has caused a huge increase in the value of lead models. Soldiers which were originally marketed for one penny each now command �2 or more. Some world record prices are expected at the December sale. A salesroom spokesman said some of the keenest bidding might come for a set depicting a tiger hunt, made by the German firm of Heyde about 1900. "German toy soldier makers tended to concentrate on many of the Indian Empire subjects- possibly reflecting Imperial Germany's envious attention to British India," said the spokesman. Bids from many parts of the world arrived for the last sale in June, including several from Canada. A Montreal collector bid for a collection of Nazi generals, including a figure of Adolf Hitler with a spring-loaded arm to give the Nazi ,�.-lute, but he was outbid at �22 by an English buyer. Training centre contract let EDMONTON (CP) - Alta-West Construction Ltd. of Edmonton has been awarded a provincial government contract for construction of a gymnasium at the vocational training centre at Fort Mc-Murray. Public Works Minister A. W. Ludwig said in a prepared statement Alta-West's bid of $187,500 was the lowest of nine submitted.
