Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 15, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Paris landmark to disappear PARIS (Renter) A Paris landmark that has inspired a lifetime of earthy humor and shocked many a foreign tour- ist is soon to disappear. The iron urinals wliidi dot the boulevards of the French capital are being torn down in deference io superior modern plumbing and sensitive nos- trils. So far, no collectors' market has developed for these all- male, uniquely French struc- tures which go under the graceful name of vespa- siennes. Not only are the antique collectors turning a blind eye, but Parisians themselves do not seem loo aggrieved at the gradual elimination of another well-known boulevard symbol. It has aroused no big protest demonstrations and no enthu- M H s t i c conservation cam- paign. The open-air vcspasicnnes have been basic lo the charac- ter of Paris for 80 years. They have been used by genera- tions of Parisians and gawked at by generations of tourists in near disbelief. ARE JOKE MATERIAL Their basic disregard for privacy has given the world's comedians and cartoonists ready material for poking ri- bald fun at the French way of life. Officially the Paris urinals are going because their plumbing has broken down, they are 11 n s i g h 11 y. They smell, they are lairs for hom- osexuals and because pave- ment space is at a premium. Women's liberation, which has just hit Paris, could be another compelling factor in their removal. The capital cannot entirely dismiss the threat of an onslaught by fe- male demonstrators against these all-male bastions. Most women are already hostile to the vespasicnnes. "Thy'rc is their near-unanimous word on the matter. Vespasienncs first went up in Paris in the 1890s. The de- signer of the unusual struc- tures remains anonymous hut thev were named after the Wootcv Bar" One-Stop Shopping For All of Your Horse Equipment...

Pay law action held up EDMONTON (CP) An Al- berta Supreme Court Judge re- served judgment Monday in a case which is delaying a federal minimum wage law action against Canadian National Rail- ways. The railway has challenged the jurisdiction of the Canada Labor Relations Board in Jas- per National Park where it has certified the Canadian Brother- hood of Railway, Transport and General workers as the bargain- ing agent for employees of CN's Jasper Park Lodge. Also, the railway says the j board has no jurisdiction over the employees under the Cana- dian National Railways Act. CN employees at the lodge earn an hour, the provin- cial minimum wage, and the railway says it doesn't have to pay the federal minimum wage of SI .65 an hour because the workers are under provincial ju- risdiction. Justice Minister John Turner said a year ago that the govern- ment's action against the rail- way for not paying federal mini- mum wages in six hotels must await the outcome of the Al- berta case. Mr. Justice C. W. Clement did not indicate when he will give his decision on the case. MANY PAPERS There are more than 850 weekly newspapers in Canada.
