The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta British Columbia goes it alone on time switch VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia will go it alone in changing to daylight time on Sunday when the United States moves clocks ahead an hour in an attempt to conserve energy, Premier Dave Barrett said Thursday. "It's not a question of us joining with the he told reporters. Changing to daylight time at the beginning of the year will be an advantage tor the province, especially for the forest in- dustry and financial institutions, he said. 'It may be hardship for some, but the over-all good of the province of B.C. is what is at stake here." Asked about suggestions that the time change won't save energy, Mr. Barrett said there will be a marginal benefit "but the main thing is that the economic factors involved are the primary concern to us." "They affect jobs and the security of our people. We want to keep our markets in the U.S." Ontario's decision Thursday to stick with standard time won't affect B.C., said the premier, who suggested that the Ontario cabinet "knuckled under the pressure" from groups within the province. UNIONS OPPOSED He said the forest industry unions in B.C. applied similar pressure here to prevent the time change. W. M. Garven, Air Canada general manager for B.C. and the Pacific Northwest, said in a telegram to Mr. Barrett that B.C. should await national adoption of daylight time. "Adoption by B.C. alone at this time will create severe problems for transcontinental air services and confusion and inconvenience to the travelling public Mr. Garven said. The province of Alberta has "absolutely no intention" of implementing daylight time as an energy-saving device, a spokesman for the premier's office said Thursday. A provincial plebiscite would be required to approve year- round daylight time, and there has been no public pressure for such a vote, she said. The concept has not been discussed by the cabinet because the government does not believe daylight time would make any substantial difference in saving energy in Alberta, she said. The Saskatchewan government has said it sees no reason for Saskatchewan to switch from standard time, which the province maintains year-round., There has been no official announcement yet in Manitoba, but one is expected today at Premier Ed Schreyer's weekly news conference. Sources said Manitoba is expected to follow Ontario's lead.

Royal romance fever warms chilly Britons LONDON (CP) Royal ro- mance is wanning up the first chilly, depressing days of a Britain beginning to feel the pinch of its three-day work week.

Charles, 25, a serving lieutenant in the Royal navy, left Britain Wednesday for ex- tended duty in the frigate Jupiter, which will take him to the Far East until May. Rumors say an engagement may be announced then almost a year after Princess Arine's. National Gallery may be moved By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau confirmed to a reporter Thursday that the National Gallery of Canada, now located in Ot- tawa, may be moved to a new S35-million building in Hull, Que. Mr. Trudeau said alter- native sites for the gallery's new quarters, planned for completion by the art in- stitution's centennial in 1980, are being considered. A is expected to come this possibly next architects are assigned to design the new the design will depend on whether it is to be in downtown Ottawa, has been the banks of Brewery Creek in semi-parkland in Hull. The National Gallery was formed in 1880 by the Marquis of Lome, governor-general at the time. Dr. Jean Sutherland Boggs, gallery director, has had her Army tattoo director dies OTTAWA (CP) Robert Rosewarne, art director of the 1967 Canadian Armed Forces Tattoo, will be buried here Saturday. He died Wednesday at the age of 48 after a long ill- ness. Mr. Rosewarne designed costumes and sets for the military tattoo which toured 40 Canadian centres and was seen by thousands of visitors at Expo '67 and the Canadian National Exhibition in Toron- to. The Ottawa-born artist worked from 1951 to 1968 for the national defence department. He designed the badges and dress ac- coutrements for the armed forces. In 1968 he joined the public archives. He was chief of dis- plays and publicity. a new location just Elgin Street and a eye on across block south of the gallery's present location in the Lome Building. This is the site of the old wartime defence head- quarters buildings, soon to be torn down. WATER POLLUTED One of the alternative sites now is scrubland on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River, just north of Hull's commercial district. Brewery Creek is highly polluted, but capital area planners say it can be cleaned. Another alternative site for the National Gallery is said to be near Green .Island, where Ottawa City Hall is located, just upstream on the Rideau River from where it empties over the Rideau Falls into the Ottawa River. The latter choice of site is reported to have little sup- certainly not as much support among some cabinet ministers as the Hull Brewery Creek site. Mr. Trudeau's cabinet has been relocating some govern- ment offices in Hull and there is a movement afoot to put one of the federal government's major cultural agencies in Hull. The fact that the National Gallery is about to get new quarters makes it a candidate. Miss Boggs has said the gal- lery should be located within walking distance of Parlia- ment Hill for the convenience of tourists and so she favors the old defence headquarters site, long known as Cartier Square. MISSION FAILED ATHENS (AP) Three West European socialists flew home Friday after the Greek government refused to let them investigate the political situation in Greece The member of the Dutch Senate; a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies; secretary of the British Tran- sport and General Workers were representatives of the Socialist International. The popular papers have produced such headlines as "It's Love" blazoned across the front page of the tabloid Sun. The Daily Mail's women's page asks: "Could she be the first Queen Jane since the last one lost her reference to the unfortunate Lady Jane Grey in 1554, beheaded after only a few days' reign. The mass-circulation News of the World disclosed last weekend that Charles has been meeting Jane secretly for months, long before their much-publicized holiday on the Duke of Wellington's Spanish estate last November. Jane is by no means a great beauty. A local boutique owner says she is difficult to dress because "she is fairly -short and stocky." She is 1 dark-haired, giggles a lot but can look cold and aloof. Jane's friends say she is not averse to being described as "stubborn, proud and determined" qualities inherited from her famous ancestor, the Iron Duke who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Jane has worked since schooldays, first wanting to be a journalist, later working for a Fleet Street public relations firm. She now works for Colnaghi's, the fine art dealers in Bond Street, hoping to learn enough about antiques to write on the.subject. Close friends of Charles and Jane are reported to believe the romance is "definitely An officer in the Duke of Wellington's regiment, the Royal Horse Guards, says the matter has been discussed in front of the duke and he did not deny fact, he strongly encouraged it." Frozen patients unthawed MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Two frozen patients have been successfully thawed from the inside out in recent weeks, according to the chief of emergency medicine at Hennepin General Hospital. Both survived. Dr. Ernest Ruiz said the thawing process was completed by hooking the freezing victims to heart-lung machines and warm- ing their blood to a normal body temperature of 98 degrees. The technique, he said, appears to be safer for the patient than the old method of thawing from the outside in by dunking the victim in a tub of water. Dr. Ruiz said a major advantage of the machine over the tub is that the patient can be treated for cardiac arrest during the warmup.

But Hallelujah! now to as honest, perceptive, funny and poignant a movie as has ever offered the sharpness, the sweetness of recall. It's set those foam dice swinging across the windshield" burn out and hang a right to American Graffiti, a scrawl on the wall of the tunnel of memory. It's 1962, just one night in that forgettable year, you're 17, in' small-town-anywhere, caught in the void between high school graduation and what-happens-after. So it's "boss" to go cruisin' Main, in "the best bitchin' car, down the neon lit strip with Bill Haley belting "Rock Around the Clock." And with such kindness does director-writer George Lucas view these last rites of the young in the limbo, a hedonistic hiatus, just prior to adulthood. One long summer nigh., in the lives of four boys. Richard Drefuss (Curt) will leave unwillingly for college, but this night, this nice boy will pursue a blonde dream on sharp wheels, avert the cruel- ty of the local gang by cover- ing for their petty larceny and prove himself worthy to join them. Of .course he wouldn't, and his very restlessness presages the protest that will be the legacy of the Eisenhower years. There's Ronny Howard eager to get out into that big exciting world, the clean cut class president, his girl the chief cheer leader. On this night the parting frays their relationship and in their own pain they lash out at each other. Hurt, the girl (Cutdy husbands her hate then capitulates, in a most moving scene at the "sock in tears.

The fair lady in question, call- ed Debbie of course (Candy Clark) offers probably the best performance in the movie. She's dumb, grasping, stupid, easy and yet as played by Miss Clark, has warmth and oddly enough, an innocent sweetness. And John (Paul Le ripe featured and muscled in the Presley-Fabian mould, king of the road in his "puke- yellow" hot rod, but over the hill at twenty-two, stuck on this night with a thirteen- year-old brat played sen- sationally by Mackenzie Phillips. He is perhaps the most sharply acute portrayal of the time-type, his T-Shirt rolled to the shoulder, the cigarette pack tucked in the fold, stall- ing the final confrontation on the drag strip, walking the graveyard of totalled cars, yet taking time to be kind to his unwanted companion, sharing the fun of an attack on a cruis- ing pack of girls.

Who will enjoy this film. Surely everybody who remembers the pain and joy of being 17. Yet what a difference a decade makes. The kid raising hell tipping outhouses in 1907 was on the western front in 1917. The "John Boy Walton" of 1934 was flying spitfires in 1944. How do those in their late twenties view their own summer nights of '62? And how will the seventeen- year-olds watching American Graffiti and erupting into laughter at the fashions and the slang of the time, for whom the Rolling Stones offer both menace and energy, see their time in 1964. Hopefully, and to confound George Orwell's concept, with as much compassion as all who have contributed to this marvellous film. PrfcM effective thru Saturday, January 5th, 1974 closing.
