36 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 14, 1974 'In an age of increasing violence and terrorism'. Royal family's security may pose problems in '75 By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) Security tor the Royal Family in an age of' increasing violence and terrorism is likely to pose big- ger problems than ever in 1975. Britain is still generally considered safe for the Queen and her family to travel about relatively unprotected, but that comfortable belief was jolted last March when a lone gunman ambushed the lim- ousine carrying Princess Anne and her husband Mark Phillips home from a movie premiere. The incident happened in The Mall, the imposing proc- essional way leading to Buck- ingham Palace from Trafal- gar Square, and the apparent object of the attacker, Ian was captured and sentenced to life imprison- to kidnap the prin- cess. But he also fired a volley of shots at the car while Anne and Mark crouched on the floor and, in effect, it was the first attempted assassination of a member of the Royal WANTED SCRAP IRON Now Paying More For All Types Of Scrap Metal Farm Industrial Anything Made of Iron!

Towards the end of the year, a minor but disturbing inci- dent happened in Leicester when a woman threw an egg at the Queen. It narrowly mis- sed and the Queen did not bat the proverbial eyelash. But police were acutely aware that in the present spate of terror bombings in Britain, the missile might well have been something more lethal. The ambush of Anne and Mark, who had just settled into married life after a tour of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific which took in the opening of the Com- monwealth Games in Christ- church, N.Z., was the most sensational royal story for many years. Unobtrusive security meas- ures went into effect as a re- of them being that royal chauffeurs now take a course in how to evade cars driven into their path with hostile intent. All involved, in- cluding Anne herself, received decorations from the Queen for their cool conduct in the attack. Speculation continued to simmer as to the bridal choice of Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, who celebrated his 26th birthday in November.

BOOKSTORE This Year More Than Ever Lady Jane Wellesley, daughter of the Duke of Wellington, was still thought to be among the front-run- ners, despite a categorical de- nial from her father. During the summer, an im- probable but entertaining prospect was blonde Ameri- can Laura-Jo Watkins, the daughter of a U.S. admiral. Charles had met her when his ship called at San Diego, Ca- lif., and invited her to Eng- land for Ascot race week. Charles plainly enjoyed tea- sing reporters whose papers blew the story up to front- page proportions. Countering questions one day on the polo field, he retorted: "You don't think I'd be such a bloody fool as to bring her here, do Late in the year, Charles, who still has at least two years to serve in the Royal Navy, represented the Queen at centenary celebrations in Fiji and toured several cities in Australia. The Queen Mother and Princess Anne both visited the Toronto area during the year. For the 74-year-old Queen Mother, it was her first trip abroad in seven years. Anne and Mark flew to Toronto the day after their first wedding anniversary for the opening of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. The first half of 1975 sees a crowded schedule of overseas tours for the Queen and Prince Philip. They pay a state visit to Mexico in Febru- ary, prtceded by two days each in Bermuda, Barbados and the Bahamas. Prince Philip then goes on a whirlwind tour of several Central American republics. The Queen visits the West Indies again to open the Com- monwealth Heads of Govern- ment conference in Jamaic- ca April 26, followed by a state visit to Hong Kong. Priestesses cause storm NEW YORK (AP) Widen- ing controversy over ordina- tion of women priests in the Episcopal Church has focused in Ohio, where various events are sharpening the issue in a new way. Among developments there are plans for two women, recently ordained at an irregular service, to exercise priestly functions by celebrating holy communion on Sunday at an Oberlin, Ohio, parish. Episcopal canons don't ex- plicitly bar women from the priesthood, but long church tradition is against it.
