Thunday, Dotomlicr 10, 1770 HIE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Africa snoopers bugged Ramsey LONDON (CP) Dr. Mich- ael R ;i m s e y, Archbishop of Canterbury, said here there were times when he suspected his room was bugged during his recent tour of South Africa. "There were one of two occa- sions when I said to myself that my room might be bugged so I nr'u s t he very Dr. Ramsey, 60, told a news con- ference. "The fact that 1 had a thought of that kind itself was unpleas- have little thai (here were people who knew ev- erywhere I went." He said he particularly was saddened by "the penetration of the country by secret police and paid informers" and by break-ups of non-white fam- ilies. One of "the things which real- ly got me the archbish- op said, was the government's use nf "poor Africans drawing large salaries for spying on their fellows." "Africans were not really free to say what they thought be- cause of the risk of being de- tained and interrog a I e d." Dr. Ramsey said. He said African families are being separated because nf the j country's apartheid laws, and j he said he found these laws "very oppressive But he added that he had been impressed by the number nf people, especially the student generation, ready to stand UD to the regime. "There really must be con- siderable change if violence is to be avoided."

But he and the church hi South Africa oppose apartheid resolutely, he said.

Famed humorist once said little humor left today NEW YORK (AP) Rube Goldberg, B7. the humorist famed for his newspaper car- toons of agonizingly intricate inventions to accomplish sim- ple tasks, died at his home here following a lengthy ill- ness. The cause of death was not given. The Goldberg specialty was a one-panel drawing that showed in a dozen or so whacky steps how, for exam- ple, a sleeping father gave a crying baby its bottle without getting out of bed himself. It involved pulling a string lo shoot off a gun, which switched on a stove, which warmed some milk and tipped over a pot, which spilled the milk into a can and activated a lever that pulled a string to bring a nursing nipple to the baby's mouth. Despite his illness, Goldberg attended a dinner in his honor in Washington Nov. 24 to cele- brate the opening of an exhi- bition of his work at the Smithsonian Institution, in- cluding models of his contrap- tions. Goldberg said then: "There isn't much humor evident to- day. People are too preoccu- pied with war, women's liber- ation, taxes, inflation and oth- er things to bother with humor. During his lifetime, the art- ist's name entered the lan- guage in the expression "a Rube Goldberg meaning something too com- plicated to work. This held true al the Smith- sonian exhibition. One model didn't work. "That's a real Rube Gold- berg said Daniel .1. Boorstcin, director of the Museum of History and Tech- nology there. "It's easy to make some- thing that really works." Although known as Rube professionally and to his friends, Goldberg's real name was Rueben Lucius Goldberg. He retired as a Kings Fea- tures cartoonist in 1964 to de- vote his full time to sculpture. As early as 1316 he was earning a year as cre- ator of the cartoon strips Boob McNutt and Mike and Look Alike. He won a Pulitzer prize in 1948. Goldberg is survived by his widow, the former Irma See- man, two sons Thomas and George, and six grandchil- dren. 18 Boys Sought By St. John's School To Begin Classes In January St. John's School of Alberta next monlh is open- ing 18 new positions for boys in Grades 8, 9 and 10.
