Wednesday, January 15, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 45 U, Coal around the world... With most of the world's attention on oil, the coal industry may be out of the public eye lor now but its increasingly important task of providing nations with an alternative source of energy continues. In Wales, where working in the coal mines has been a way of life lor 15-year old apprentice (at right) heads for the mines at the Oakdale Colliery. A coal refinery in Kingsport, Tenn., (far right) lights up the sky as its smokestacks work round-the- clock. Politics may differ but the job is the same as Western miners at the Donesk Basin mines in Russia's Ukraine (below, left) where workers take five. Returning to the depths of the Welsh mines, an aged miner (below, center) grins from beneath layers of coal dust and grime. Slogging through several feet of snow though it looks like they're shooting the rapids, (below, right) miners hitch a ride aboard a transport at the Finley Coal Company compound in Myden, Ky. Auto executives lose bonuses BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) Recession is hurting the auto industry's ex- ecutives who live in this opulent Detroit suburb, but by Ihe death of the bonus, not by layoffs. "The rich people in Grosse Pointe have had their money tor a long time, and in large says Dollie Cole, wife of former General Motors president Edward Cole. "Bloomfield Hills is self-made money, and bonuses are a big part of the personal finances here." The town, 25 miles northeast of downtown Detroit, is five square miles of gentle hills and new es- tates. Fortune magazine once called it "perhaps the densest concentration of working rich in the world." Grosse Point, an old money bastion, is an eastern suburb of Detroit. Bloomfield Hills betrays no visible signs of the auto slump which has left factory workers laid off. "Appearances are impor- tant. People here are worry- ing about economizing, but only in small ways that other people can't easily says Walter Ambinder, a fi Bloomfield Hills physician. The executive bonus can amount to twice the regular six-figure annual salary a top company officer draws, but in bad years, it goes down and jj-' in terrible years, such as 1974, .w it disappears. At GM, executives divided million in 1973. But dur- ing the first three-quarters of the 1974 fiscal year, nothing had been set aside in the bonus account. To the top man, it is a ning loss. Retired GM chairman Richard Gerstenberg earned in salary and fees in 1973, and an additional in bonus money. Cole was paid in salary and fees, and a bonus of ''i') Henry Ford II probably will draw a more modest bonus than the he got in 1973, but has more than 1.1 million shares of Ford stock which is paying an annual dividend of a share. He lives in Grosse Point. Chinese tombs become ideological battlefield By JOHN BURNS Special to The Herald PEKING The keepers of Maoist orthodoxy have found a new battleground for their struggle against the forces of group of newly ex- cavated tombs on the out- skirts of Peking that date back nearly years. The Kuangming Daily, a pa- per specializing in cultural matters, announced yesterday that 32 Chou Dynasty tombs unearthed over the past two years have become "a battle- field" in the year-old anti- rightist drive, the campaign It only happens once a year...

"The broad masses of work- ers, peasants and soldiers have held many on-the-spot criticism meetings, using the 'bloody historical relics of the Chou slave system to criticize the criminal activities propagated by Lin Piao and the paper declared. The relics introduced as evi- dence at the meetings includ- ed the skeletons of eight slaves buried alive in the tombs. The newspaper, citing scientific tests, said that the oldest of the slaves was a 17- year-old girl and the youngest a boy of 7 or 8. "These white said the paper, "lay bare once again the lying attempts of Confucius to glorify the slave society of the Chou reference to one of the prin- cipal accusations levelled against the sage in recent months, which is that he'up- held the interests of the slave- owning class against the ris- ing forces of feudalism and thus placed himself in opposi- tion to the tide of history. By the strange alchemy of Maoism, Confucius, who lived toward the end of the Chou pe- riod (thirteenth to third cen- turies BC) is linked ideologi- cally to Lin Piao, the defence minister and heir apparent to Chairman Mao who died in a bizarre plane crash in the Mongolian Desert in 1972. Ac- cording to the official line, Lin worshipped Confucius and plotted to install himself at the head of a dynasty pledged to Confucian precepts. Convoluted as it may seem to Western students: of Chinese history, the link between the. sage and ;the marshal has had the salutary effect of encouraging ar- chaeology, or at least on giving fresh prominence to discoveries that can in some way be adduced as evidence in the campaign to discredit the two villains. Thus the account of the new discoveries, while stressing their relevence to the Con- fucius campaign, contained a wealth of archeological infor- mation demonstrating that the tombs have a historical value that goes beyond their ideological utility. The tombs, dating from the early period of the Chou Dy- nasty, were unearthed in the small village of Liulihe on the southwestern outskirts of modern Peking. They were built for minor noblemen of the period and yielded a hoard of rare artifacts. Among these was the rotted remains of a four-horse chariot with wheels nearly LASTED 400 YEARS The "contact when Canada's Eskimos first were exposed to foreign visitors, lasted about 400 years and ended less than a century ago. five feet high. There was also an extensive collection of bronze and pottery utensils, weapons including spears and tridents, carved ivory and precious stones and skeletons of horses, dogs and other animals. The paper recalled that sim- ilar Chou Dynasty tombs were discovered nearby in 1867, but added that the new tombs are the first one of the period to have been unearthed ac- cording to modern scientific principles. It was accom- panied by photographs show- ing one of the tombs with the bones of slaves lying close to the nobleman's coffin. At last a bifocal lens that has no tell tale dividing lines or segments.
