Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IITHUIDOI HttMO Monday, 11. 1WI Quebec NDP wing vote to quit provincial action MONTREAL (CP) The uebec wing of the New Demo-ratie Party rained through series of social and legal re-orm proposals at a and voted to puu out of provincial politics. But this acivity was overshadowed when most of the 200 delegate! approved a proposal Sullivan's 'really big show9 victim of TV squeeze pull I to recognize Quebec's to decide its own future. The resolution, to come be- fore the national convention in April, read: "Quebec has an abv..ute right to self-determination, that is, to decide for Harif the degree of sovereignty which suits it in all fields. Raymond LaBberte, wla> was elected party president to suc- ceed Roland Morin, said in an NEW YORK (AP) After 23 ,-ears, virtually from the birth >f television itself, the end ap- to be at hand for Ed Sulli- ran's "really big show." All signs indicate that televi- sion's longest-running irhen he began in June, 1948, CBS had only five stations stretching from Boston to Balti- more-will be cancelled at the end of this season. It goes into reruns in April, the earliest it has ever done so. "We haven't picked up Ed's option for next year, but that also goes for 75 of our other said Hobert D. Wood, president of the CBS television network. S u 11 i v a n's producer, Bob Precht, who also is his son-in- law, said: "Ed's not ready to retire. We've discussed changes in the show with CBS, but we also have feelers out to the other networks and we're looking into syndication." Sullivan's show may fall vic- tim to a four-way squeeze: Tele- vision is experiencing its worst economic slump; the networks must give up 3% hours of prime time a week next fall; changing public tastes have toppled his show from the top of the rat- ings; and CBS apparently is going to cast off more of Its older shows to aim for younger audiences. FINDS NEW STARS Two unknowns, Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, got their break on his fust show. Since then, the show has been the of stars, including-------------- Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Carol Burnett, Harry Belafonte, Sammy Davis Jr., Maria Callas, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Bar- mi Streisand and Joan Rivers. Attacks stall drive planned to form with the separatist Parti Que- becois. Laliberte, a strong Quebec nationalist and former presi dent of the Quebec Teachers Corporation, said the Quebec NDP would try to present "solution which is accepable to tie largest part of the pop- ulation possible." LAXER AGREES James Laxer, federal leader- ship candidate of the radical Waffle group, said he agreed with the resolutions. Frank Howard, member of Parliament for Skeena, said he was "not favorably disposed to setting out special constitu- tional jurisdiction and legisla- tive authority for any single geographical political unit within Canada." He said a resolution on Quebec's right to separate was Warning system goofs and because such a resolution would "give tacit backing to those in Quebec who want to separate, David Lewis, deputy leader of the party, raised the prob- lem of reaction in English-Can- ada as he attacked the resolu- tion. Oil tanker shipments protested DOUGLAS, B.C. (CP) About persons from Can- ada and the United States met at the Peace Arch on the In- ternational Border here Sun- day to protest the proposed use of tankers to transport oi! along the west coast and into Puget Sound. New Democratic MP Barry Mather of Surrey called upon B.C. MPs to form a committee to protest the tanker shipment plans by the Atlantic Hichfield Oil Company to a refinery at Cherry Point, Wash. He said MPs should press Prime Minister Trudeau and President Nixon to discuss the proposal. A group of about 100 young persons played drums and chanted "storm the border" but got no response and later dis- persed. Police from both sides of the border watched the demonstra- tion. Douglas is about 30 miles south of Vancouver. SAIGON (AP) More heavy North Vietnamese attacks stalled the south Vietnamese drive into Laos today for the fifth successive day. Forward elements of Saigon's force were still only 17% miles from the border they crossed two weeks ago. Military sources said the campaign also had not achieved its objective, to cut the flow of Communist supplies down the Ho CM Minn trail. Instead, these sources said, the North Vietnamese bad doubled the truck traffic, from to about "movers" a day, and: diverted them to the west to routes beyond the South' Viet- namese advance.

TORONTO (CP) A week- end conference of Canadian black students passed a resolu- tion to form an organization to find black foster homes for black children without parents, a conference spokesman said Sunday. Rocky Jones, a conference or- ganizer, told a news conference the resolution was passed be- cause "there is no reason why black children should be to see their needs were white foster homes." White reporters had been barred from the three-day con- ference, and Mr. Jones said he would comment only on resolu- tions that directly affected the white community.

Moon rocks pose new mystery HOUSTON (Reuter) Space agency scientists have reported a surprise finding with the Apollo 14 moon rocks: some ol them look as though they had been freshly chiBped from larger rocks. Unlike the smooth rocks brought back from two previous Apollo missions to the moon's surface, these have sharp an- gles and facets of "fracture faces" that show no erosion at all Dr. Paul W. Gast, chief of the planetary and earth sciences di vision at the Manned Spacecraf Centre here, told reporter, "there is no and if a rock was broken "again in the lab, you would see an other face just like that."
