Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 15, 1975 Prolific humor writer, Ontario P. G. Wodehouse dies REMSENBERG, N.Y. (AP) Sir Pelham G. Wodehouse, 93, for more than 70 years one of the English language's most prolific and best-loved writers of humor and creator of the butler Jeeves, died Friday night. He was knighted by the Queen in January! Death came quietly at Southampton Hospital on Long Island. Sir Pelham was born in Guildford, England, on Oct.15, 1881. "I'd like to go in my his sister-in-law Nella Wode- house quoted him as saying, and added: "And he did. There was no pain. He went quietly, at 8 o'clock." Known as "Plum" to his friends, Sir Peiham was knighted last New Year's the last of many honors and the one that pleased him best. The creator of quintessential he was especially pleased because the knighthood wiped out the lingering taint of Se- cond World War treason charges based on broadcasts he made from France. Trapped in occupied France by Nazi invaders, Wodehouse made several broadcasts for them that led to the unofficial treason charges. 1 NEEDA MUFFLER for your BUICK CADILLAC CHEVROLET CHRYSLER DODGE FORD OLDSMOBILE PONTIAC DAT5UN TOYOTA VOLKSWAGEN PLYMOUTH MERCURY PICK-UP Drop in or Call 328-6353 CARDINAL MUFFLER CENTRE 2710-12 South I WODEHOUSE "This is a graceful act on her he said of the Queen's bestowal of the knighthood. "It closes out the whole thing." Lady Wodehouse, 89, was put to bed under sedatives.

"We were home when the doctor phoned and said he had died sitting in a chair in his room. It must have been heart." "They'll never see his like said Mrs. Wodehouse, who has lived here since the death of her husband, Sir Pel- harn's brother. Even in the hospital, Sir Pelham continued to work on a new book. It was untitled, but concerned Jeeves and a wonderful, wacky world of riches and aristocracy that no longer it ever did. Although Wodehouse became a United States citizen in 1955, he considered the knighthood had made him again an epitome of everything British. Not long ago, however, he said: "This does not mean preferring cricket to baseball. Cricket is a deadly dull game. I love baseball." As an American, Sir Pelham technically was not allowed to use his title, but he and Lady Wodehouse got a whimsical joy out of it. Although best-known for his humorous novels, millions have sung his song Bill, without realizing he wrote the lyrics to Jerome Kern's melody. His.last book was known in England as Aunts Aren't Gen- tlemen and in the United States as The Catnappers. Sir nickname Plum comes from the way Pelham sounds when pronounced Lady Wodehouse were married in New York at the Little Church Around the Corner shortly after the First World War began. By Sir Pelham's own ac- count, the wedding had a typical zany Wodehouse touch loaned the clergyman to take ad- vantage of a stock market tip. For years the couple had a magnificent townhouse and later an apartment on Park Avenue where they entertain- ed lavishly until they moved here in the 1950s. "Now no one ever comes to see Lady Wodehouse complained in a recent telephone conversation.

Warren Lee Augustus, 22, Lorne John Rivett, 19, and Myles Garfield Sartor, 19, were pronounced guilty after a six-man, six-woman jury deliberated for 75 minutes. Mr. Justice J. V. H. Milvain handed down the sentence, bringing to an end five days of evidence. The three will be eligible for parole aftervserving 10 years, but the judge can increase this term to up to 20 years.

FIRE LIFE AUTO LIABILITY BONDING PENSION REGISTERED RETIREMENT SAVINGS 415 3rd Ave. S., Lethbridge Bus. 327-1657 Garry Clarke After Hours: 345-3092 STOCKHOLM (AP) -Swe- den's national defence and its hopes to be an oil-producing country have become involved in an unusual increase of ten- sion with the Soviet Union. The bad feeling has been growing for some time and concerns particularly the two countries' rights in the Baltic Sea, important in terms of military strategy and poten- tially rich in oil. The Soviets, through a Tass news agency commentary, last week attacked Gen. Stig Synnergren, the Swedish chief of staff, after he issued a warning about improved Soviet logistics strength and increased ground force com- mitments in the north. The general's statement was out of the ordinary. Although it has one of the world's biggest per-capita defence budgets, Sweden, as a neutral country that has avoided war for the last 160 years, normally steers clear of publicly naming its enemies. This time, Synnergren said that the rail networks between the Soviet Union and neutral Finland were being continually integrated and that two more lines would be added during the next five years. What this meant, he said, was that the Soviet Union could simultaneously send at least 12 divisions to Sweden's Finnish border. The Soviets accused Synner- gren of trying to increase ten- sions. The underlying Baltic prob- lem results from attempts to draw .the boundary of the continental shelf between the Soviet and Swedish coastlines. Both countries have signed a multilateral convention that sets boundaries in the Baltic on the median line between the two countries involved. Each then has the right to do undersea exploration. The Soviets draw the line right down the middle of the water between the two con- tinental land masses, bringing Soviet rights to within four or five miles of the strategic Swedish island of Gotland. This would not only violate Sweden's defence strategies, but would sharply limit the area of the Baltic available to it for oil exploration. Oil has already been found in southern Gotland, whose pop- ulation is about and tests in the waters around it have brought optimistic reports of the possibility of major oil finds. IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT Do you use a fireplace? If you do, remember that a fireplace uses a large volume of air for its operation. Your gas appliances also require air for their safe operation. Your fireplace may be robb- ing this air, from your gas appliances. Your Gas Company reminds you to provide an adequate supply of fresh air when using your fireplace. This can be accomplished by partially opening a window. To prevent loss of air when your fireplace is not in use, the damper should be closed. canaotan uuesTern narura. oas I company umrreo WINTER GAMES RED GRILLE SPECIAL GRILLED HAM STEAK 1.29 Thick sliced and succulent hum served with golden lirown french fried potatoes, tomato slices on lettuce or cole slaw, and and butler.

While most of the spec- tators waited for the jury to reach its verdict, Mrs. Florence Bermette. The mother of the murdered youth, left the courtroom after the jury was charged. All three pleaded not guilty, Rivett by reason of insanity and Augustus because he was not in the washroom when the stabbing took place. Earlier in the trial a psy- chiatrist, Dr. Keith Pearce, told the court Rivett was on a drug-alcohol combination "that would turn an ordinary person into an unexploded time bomb" and this added to the fact that the yputh was a psycopath created a person who would beggar descrip- tion. Dr. Morris Garnet, a psy- chiatrist called by the crown, said that a psycopath "doesn't care who he steps on although he is fully aware of what he is doing." Dr. Carnet said Rivett would know that what he was doing was wrong.
