Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta %2 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wedncieloy 7 ..-i  fcbrufiry SO, 1973 IV s changed in Vietnam New York 'limes Service SAIGON. Smith Vietnam- - The overriding reality of Yiel-r.r?m. a month after the ostensible arrival of peace, is that virtually nothing has changed. Saigon has not become a peacetime capital. Yiehiam has not. become a nation at peace. In (he countryside the fighting still goes on - at times at a lower level than before. The capital looks, acts a n d feels precisely the same today as it did a feu- months ago, when the war was still on officially. Coils of barbed wire still snake along sidewalks outside government buildings and military installations. Soldisrs still .stand on key street corners wearing bulky flak jackets raid helmets and holding bayoneted rifles at the ready. At night the thud of artillery can still be heard in the distance, although somewhat less persistently than a month ago. A whistle still blows at 10:45 p.m. and a siren still sounds 15 minutes later to signal the start of the overnigbt curfew, which clears the city of people and traffic for seven hours. In short, an atmosphere of war prevails in Saigon. The otJier night a high-ranking member of tile International Control Commission - the four-nation body charged with supervising the Vietnam ceasefire - was playing poker with some diplomats and journalists in a downtown apartment. It was a lively, jovial game and the focus of everyone's attention was on the cards rather than on politics. At one point during the evening the noise of cannon fire intruded on the clacking of chips and the murmur of conversation. "You hear that," a player said. "Why are they doing that? Don't they know there's a cease-fire?" The comments were made in a jesting tone, for the sounds of death and destruction have become so commonplace here that they are more a source of wry humor than of concern when they are heard from miles away. "We keep telling them to stop," the commission official said, "but they never listen." Current or Classical Record Sets Great Stars-Great Hits 8 L.P. Set What a collection of stars and songs!

Mark Phillips will be seeing a lot more of each other in the coming weeks, but this doesn't necessarily mean romance is on the boil.  In fact, the word from inside the royal circle is that riding, not romance, is the prime reason why the Queen's 22-year-old daughter and the 24-year-old Olympic horseman spend time together, Anne and Phillips are both entered in a series of horse trials leading to the Badminton Trials in mid-April from which Britain's riders will be selected for the European champion-slups at Kiev in the Soviet Union in September. Both are anxious to be selected. Anne, who won the Eu x'opean individual championship, in 3971, is to accompany her father, Prince PItilip, to Russia that month for the first British royal visit since the 1917 revolution. Speculation about the relationship between Anne and Mark arose again during the weekend when the princess returned from a 12-day tour of Ethiopia and almost immediately sped off to meet Phillips at his family's home in Wiltshire. Phillips, meanwhile, was on his third weekend leave from his regiment, the First Queen's Dragoon Guards, since it was posted to West Germany a month ago. GETS NO PRIVILEGES? A question was even asked in the House of Commons about the frequency of such leaves- though Phillips was not mentioned by name-and drew the bland rejoinder that the Queen's Dragoon Guards had no special privileges. Phillips now has a few extra days leave and likely will spend much time with Anne at Alison Oliver's training stables in Berkshire getting their horses in shape for the first big event of the season, the Amberley triais at Cirencester March 17-18. The couple's meetings since Phillips went to Germany have revolved around training for their coming horse-riding contests. Phillips, at tlie Queen's suggestion, is r\ling Columbus, one of the royal mounts which proved too powerful for Prin- cess Anne. She likely will ride a brown gelding named Goodwill. Riding is said to be the chief spur to the i-elationship, although they share other interests-fast cars, for instance. Rumors of an impending engagement are discounted by friends. One acquaintance of Phillips points out Anne has other less-publicized male friends-Lord Irwin, 28, heir to the Earl of Halifax, for one. ODD-SHAPED NEST The ovenbird, a member of the wood-warbler family, derives its name from the shape of its nest; a domed-over structure with the opening at the sid like an old-fashioned oven.
