Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE December Internal rivalries persist in Europe PARIS With calipers and cranial-index a professor at Milan University in northern Italy taught that the shape and size of skulls in Neapolitans and Sicilians from the south bore out evidence of their intellec- tual inferiority. That was 50 years ago. To- newspapers in the Milan- Turin area still have room- for-rent ads that specify the offer is for northerners only. In a student from Toulon on the Mediterranean studying engi- neering in says time I open my mouth on the subway people break up over my southern ac- cent It's a symbol of a kind of discrimination because nobody takes you seriously if you don't talk in their northern way Everywhere in Western Eu- where intense efforts are being made to unify countries politically and the old internal rivalries persist. They are often comic or as colorful as a regional dancer's but just as frequently they represent backwardness and a waste of human resources Every country from Sweden to Spam has north-south rival- ries and bitterness And in ev- ery country there is a notion ot where the north ends'and south begins. In Sweden the north- south line is the Dalecarlia about 65 miles north of and m England it is the River Trent. The Oire River cut Prance across the middle and in Germany there is the Weisswurst equator that sepa- rates along the River Main the Bavarians from the rest of the northern world. In the southerners play by their own ad- mission work less and have a different cuisine. In Sweden and Italy the dif- ferences are born out of an imbalance in the standard of living and creating deep 'animosities In more than two mil- lion people have moved from the underdeveloped south to the industrial north in the last 20 years. During the 1960s in with its smaller pop- about people drifted south to the in- dustrialized areas around Stockholm. In the average yearly income in the north is but in the rest of the country it's higher. In the difference is almost double a year for southerners and for northerners. In both countries there is much resentment against what is considered colonialism-at- exploitation of the weaker half of the country by the stronger half. Some of the differences be- tween north and south are be- ing slowly diminished by a growing ease in com- munications and through television. In Milan a Sicilian accent symbolizes backwardness. Regional accents in southern Italy and southern Germany are virtual with different words and idioms from the mother language The problems of communica- tion are both practical and psychological. In the northerners say the southerners are soft. In which the rest of Europe considers as lying wholly in the the inter- nal north-south bitterness is just as strong. The citizens of Madrid are upstarts and un- cultured in the eyes of the Catalans from the and people in Madrid say the Catalans are cheap. A whole catalogue of ster- eotypes is cut into the Spanish women from Galicia in Northwest Spain are strong and women from Andalusia in the south are sexy and less men from the north like eating and hunting. The stereotypes in Germany have been pushed so far that the Bavarian state ministry for economy and transport took out ads around the country to Bavaria picture is all As in France where the southerner is considered dis- organized and occasionally in- and as in Sweden where people from the south are regarded as noisy and un- the Bavarian is considered by his fellow countrymen as a bit slow- witted. In Britain it is the south that mocks the more workaday north Of all the countries in Eu- Italy appears to have the most scornful north- south divisions based on cen- turies of ignorance and dis- interest. Italian lonely hearts ads tend to have initial like seeks north- The discrimination extends to job ads. Milan's Corriere della Seradrew a series of angry letters when it published a job advertisement requiring that the applicant a native and resident of north Safeway's your best place to Oysters 9 0QQ Savoy3.66oz.NetWt.Tin ........' tjaf 2i99 STORE HOURS OPEN MONDAY Dec. 31 Until 6 p.m. CLOSED NEW YEARS DAY Ham Turkey Fixin's at Safeway Prices NetWt.Tinea Capture The New MayiCUDOS G.E.
