Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta A village in England. Urbanization threatens villages By PETER STUART Christian Science Monitor CASTLE England This medieval Cotswold hamlet is every tourist's vision of an English village. Ginger-colored stone cot- as tilting and tiny as children's tumble down the slopes of Parsonage Wood to a gurgling brook. So secluded was Castle Combe that when in 1962 it was voted village in none of its 486 startled residents even knew it had been nominated. the peaceful isolation of centuries has been broken. Coachloads of tourists wedge their way through the village's lone artery simply The And the creaky charm of the 13th-century Castle Inn is jaded by rock music from the next door. But judged by some of England's other Castle Combe is well off. It does not suffer heavy property or depopulation. At least not yet. All these things cutting edge of the bigness and brusqueness of modern urban society are plac- ing the of the traditional English village in peril warns the Council for the Protection of Rural Englishman and a host of visitors From abroad derive pleasure in rediscovering the beauty of the country with the color but they are finding it increasingly dif- ficult to compose a picture of rural England without including one or another of the discordant symbols of our advancing civilization in the Focus that color for on the of Fernhill in Surrey. Fernhill has no no no and soon may have no population. The village is dying of noise. The runway of London's No. 2 airport at Gatwick is aimed straight at and many of the remaining noise-drenched residents want to convert the place to warehouses and flee. Precisely the opposite fate awaits hamlets clustered around the site of London's proposed third airport near the Essex coast.

Mrs. Plumptre's salary and the need to have such a board at all have been questioned by members of Parliament. Many of the board's reports and Mrs. Plumptre's comments on them have been criticized by consumer groups and food in- dustry spokesmen. She is an economist who has been president of the Con- sumers' Association of president of The Vanier Institute of the Family and economic consultant to several government agencies. Food prices themselves became a matter of headline concern when they began to rise faster than they have in and faster than the rest of the cost-of-living which has taken its biggest jump since 1951.

Israel's 75-year-old Prime Minister Golda who doggedly guided her people through their fourth war with the Arab has been compared in the British press with Winston Churchill in the Second World War. An opinion poll in Britain for the first time placed her ahead of the Queen in a list of most admired women. At year's she faced a national election amid ap- parent apathy from war- weary voters. Worse than that was the fear she confided to British politician writer Richard Grossman of another Arab at- tack waiting when I know each night that Egyptian President Sadat may choose to press the Princess Anne's November wedding to cavalry Capt.

One unlikely liberationist in 1973 was Angela Hernandez who ran into conflict with Spanish bullfighting authorities over their refusal to grant her a licence as a matador. She claimed their edict contravened a 1961 law granting equal professional rights to both sexes and bullfight fans are hotly divid- ed on the issue.

Ann Landers Dear Ann Several months ago you asked girls who had given up their virginity to write and tell you how they felt about it. I couldn't bring myself to put my thoughts down on paper but I am ready now. I'd like to say I didn't give in because was doing The girls I went to high school with weren't bragging in they were doing just the opposite. They were lying in their pretending they were when aqtually they were I lost my virginity at 15 and now I feel rotten about it. My dropped me after stringing me along for nearly four years. The relationship is over and the pain is but I still feel used. Now I am 20 and hurting from a second af- fair. When you as we used to call you lose a lot of respect for and that hurts worse than anything. You try to hold on to the guy by catering to his but it never works. By the time you figure out that a relationship based strictly on sex is no you're a loser no matter how you look at it. I'm sure a lot of girls are not ME. It's cool to do it if you feel like and if you really care about the guy it's not cheap or keep kidding yourselves. My best friend operated along those lines for years and she was just ditched by Number 15. That poor kid in every two weeks. She's so vulnerable it's pathetic. I know this letter is too long to but maybe if you will print a part of it will help open a few eyes. Thank you. A Formerly Cool Cat With A Million Regrets Dear Here's your By Barnes has my scarf and my husband's Ski mishaps plague women letter all ot u. i hope the girls who see themselves in this column will face up to the truth. If you don't feel good about whatever it is that you're it's wrong. Thanks for sharing. Dear Ann To- day my parents took my pet away because too many neighbors complained that he barked all the time. He also nipped a little kid but it was nothing serious. The lady who complained the most lives next door. She should be the last one to com- plain about anything. She has a mentally retarded boy who is always walking around out- side with most of his clothes off. Even in the winter. Last December he was out almost every in the without no jacket or cap. Everyone keeps pulling his pants up and taking him home. Once when we had company he wandered into our living room without any pants at all. There is nothing you can do about our dog but will you please tell us what we can do about this woman's Spokeimai For The Neighborhood Dear The mother of that child has her hands full. I believe it would be an act of kindness if your mother had a chat with her and suggested that she keep the doors locked for the child's protection as well as out of consideration for the neighbors. If the mother is not amenable to your Mom should call the local chapter for Retarded Children. Someone should intervene for the child's sake. That woman needs counselling. Dear ABB A cer- tain person in our office says to everybody who walks in the door. If he doesn't he will follow that individual around and keep repeating mor- until he gets an answer. It's not that I am but I can't stand to hear 300 times in 15 minutes. some mor- nings I don't happen to feel like saying or anything else. What can I do about Not Even MomiBf It Good Dear Nothing annoys a morning sourpuss like an ultra-cheerful character. But your chances of getting Mr. Sunshine to cut down the happy voltage are mighty slim. Those types are unflap- pable. If you'd get to bed an hour earlier you might feel better.
