LXV No. 11 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1971 PlilCE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 20 PAGES IT'S WARM IN ONTARIO Milder temper- olurcs are forecast for Ontario today while very cold readings are expected in northern parts of Hie western provinces, eastern Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. Snow is expected in many areas. Figures indicate expected high tempera- tures today. Other features are for midday. Britain, U.S. pride selves on policies By CY FOX LONDON' (CP) It seems a long time since the leaders of Britain and the United States prided themselves about having a more or less common pol- icy on world problems. After the wartime meetings between U.S. Presi- dent Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Churchill, talk of a special relationship between the two coun- tries became a common feature of international uol- itics. Before the Second World War, Anglo American 1i.-s were based primarily on a common ethnic tra- dition. But the growth of organizations such as the Eng- lish-Speaking Union tended to cloud the fact that the U.S. born as a result of conflict with England and a substantial degree of antagonism between the two survived into the 19th century. Thus the erosion of the Anglo-American alliance .fince the Second World War constitutes a return to historical normality rather than the undermining of a natural pattern of relations. Cooling recognized At their latest summit meeting President Nixon end Prime Minister Heath seem to have noted this tempering of the relationship. As a result, they sought to put their contacts on a basis more in keeping with the current political real- ities. Heath spoke as the leader of a nation which now belongs to Europe, rather than as the head of a government oriented towards English-speaking North America. For his part, Nixon referred to similarly novel velopments in American foreign policy, notably his mellowing towards China. Both Heath and Nixon indicated that the confer- ence resulted in agreement on important issues of prin- ciple. But there also were references lo disagreement about tactics. Friction has appeared between London and Wash- ington over U.S. support of Pakistan in its conflict with India. One French observer of the Bermuda conference remarked that the British had expressed their dis- agreement with American policy on this point and with a frankness virtually unknown at such meetings. What might be in the offing is a sharply increased sense of independence on Britain's part as far as its relationship with the U.S. is concerned. This may prove to be one of the first legacies of lire policy which ironically, with Washington's ap- proval has moved Britain towards entry into the European Common Market. Old Scrooge had something SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Ebonezer Scrooge, Christmas's famous sourpus, may have been acting quite normally as he stamped about casting "Bah, humbugs" to the world. At least that's the way several San Francisco psy- chiatrists sec the Charles Dickens' grouch. To Dr. Robert E. Cuban, Scrooge's humbugs may have been a sign of sanity in a world of frustration. "There's no Cohan said here, "that Scrooge has bccoinn progressively more popular as people find out that Santa Clans has let them down." He continued: "Sanla Claus can't possibly fulfil all those childhood hopes and dreams that make us less prepared for ariult frustrations." Dr. Robert Wald said he views old scrooge as a non-conformist figure and independent thinker of great who refused lo Iw happy and forgiving just because everybody else was running nroimd awash in good will.

Gary Gilbert was flown here Wednesday to Hospital for Sick Children after Allan Ron- ald Bray died of injuries from a Monday night traffic accident in his hometown 20 miles north of Oshawa. Hospital officials here admit- ted a kidney transplant had taken place but refused to iden- tify the patient. They said the patient was in satisfactory con- dition. In Sault Stc. Marie, the fam- ily doctor of Mr. and Mrs. Er- nest Kheaume, Gary's foster parents, confirmed the opera- tion.
