Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ____Wtdntsday, February 10, 1971 THE UTHMIDCE HMMD 13 Stiff regulations eased JOHANNESBURG (Reuier) The South African govern- ment has relaxed one of its stif- fest apartheid regulations and given construction firms the go- ahead to give skilled colored workers jobs normally reserved for whites in Pretoria and Jo- hannesburg areas. The government action, freeing thousands of mixed-race workers on to a labor-starved market, was immediately praised by the industry's lead- ers at the same time hotly denounced by some white union leaders. Labor Minister M a r a i s Vil- joen's announcement Monday that job reservation affecting people of mixed race in the building industry in this area of the Transvaal would be dropped, marked a dramatic about-face by the government On the thorny question of white and non-white job competition. Viljoen, who only two year? ago gave white workers an as- surance that such a step never would be taken, announced that colored workers would be em- ployed on an equal level with whites. This means that they will get the same pay as whites. Raiders bloiv up customs post BEIRUT Israeli raid- ers, blew up a customs post in south Lebanon Monday night to retaliate for an attack S'unday by Palestinian Arab guerrillas on an Israeli patrol, a news- paper in Beirut reported today. Al Bairak said the post was near Tel Nihas, a few miles north of the frontier. Spokesmen for the Lebanese government and the Palestinians refused to confirm or deny the report. Israel resumed retaliatory raids in Lebanon last December after a three-month layoff. Israeli forces also w'ere in ac- tion Monday night across the ceasefire line on the Syrian frontier. Sources said Arabs started shooting with bazookas and machine-guns north of Qun- eitra, and the fire was returned. The Israelis reported no casual- ties. Snatch flag from coffin BELFAST (Renter) Protes- taht youths here snatched the Irish flag from the coffin of a Roman Catholic slain by British troops during weekend rioting here. The incident occurred when the funeral procession of Catho- lics mourning Barney Watts passed a Protestant neighbor- hood on the way from church to a cemetery. Crowds of jeering Protestants moved a crane across the road to prevent the cortege from passing. Then a group of youths yanked open the door of the hearse, pulled the flag from the coffin and fled. The dead man was a 28-year- old unemployed laborer and a member of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. He was shot by a soldier during rioting Fri- day. Stowaway found dead in sea CHRISTCHURCH (Reuter) One of three stowaways, be- lieved to be young American servicemen, was found dead in the sea off the New Zealand coast today only.hours after, they were reported to have jumped overboard from a freighter. The dead man, found by a fishing vessel, was wearing an orange life jacket. Two other lifejackets, one with a pair of boots tied to it, also were found in the area.

Heart attacks on the increase TORONTO (CP) A "fat, over-fed affluent society" is causing an increasing number of heart attacks in Canadian men, a preventive medicine ex- pert said here. Dr. Douglas Warren, asso- ciate professor of preventive medicine at the University of Toronto's school of hygiene, made the comment at a public forum on heart disease. "In Canada our main nutri- tion problem is excess nutri- said Dr. Warren. He said Canada's dietary problems may begin with moth- ers who like their babies "round, firm and A large." This can lead to heart attacks later in life, he said. Dr. Warren also blamed a lack of exercise for many heart attacks. Dr. David Sackett, head of the department of clinical epide- miology at McMaster Univer- sity's school of medicine, said smoking cigarettes is "sheer suicidal naivete." Dr. Sackett said smoking has made a "staggering" contribu- tion to Canada's death statistics through lung cancer, emphy- sema and heart disease.

Fifty-seven per cent think there is no prospect at all fcr peace in 1971, while 22.1 per cent say maybe and per coil are undecided. some people along the route to a heart attack, Dr. John Mor- row, a Toronto heart specialist, told the forum. He said emo- tional upsets can cause high blood pressure, and this can in- crease the chances of prema- ture hardening of the arteries leading to chest pains and heart attacks.

Italy (AP) A Milan judge has asserted the right of striking barbers to leave a customer with half a haircut or half a shave in order to begin a strike on time. The case came to court when unions entered a com- plaint against managers of the barbershop at the Milan train station. The manage- ment tied warned its staff not to leave haircuts and shaves unfinished when they went on strike. Judge AWo Naya upheld lire unions. He said strikes were limited by the protec- tion of the fundamental needs of individuals and the com- munity.
