Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD January 16, 1975 Indian colony haven for young Westerners GOA, India (AP) The tall blonde man, his long hair waving in the wind, walked naked from the surf and strolled across the beach while a group of young Goans watched and giggled. Such incidents trouble the people of this former Portuguese colony which has become a haven for young westerners adrift with little to spend and time to spare. The visitors have set up a little colony in Goa, drawn by the warm Arabian sea, the unspoiled beaches, the low prices and the generally tolerant attitude of the Goan people. Goa now is a part of India. But the tolerance is wearing thin. Goans now talk of all young travellers in casual dress as often saying it with a sneer. Neither Roman Catholicism, the religion of a third of Goa's residents, nor Hinduism, the religion of most of the rest, makes much allowance for the free ways of European arid North American youths on the move. Residents, shocked at nudity on the beaches, have dem- onstrated in the capital city of Panaji, petitioned the territorial government and written indignant letters to newspapers. Police have posted Calnagute Beach, a favorite sunning spot lor the youths, with red signs warning that nudity is against Goan law and that offenders will be punished. Police commissioner M. B. Kaushal said his officers also are troubled by Western girls coming into the police department for visa extensions wearing lightweight Indian blouses without bra. But Kaushal said, "The real hippies are all just want to be left alone." The real trouble comes from drug dealers, passport racketeers and thieves who mix with the young drifters and prey on them. "The local boys were getting he said. Authorities estimate that about young Westerners have made up the revolving population of Goa's beachside houses, renting for about a month. "I've been on a holiday, an extended said a Swede, packing up with a French girl to head back to Europe after four years away from home and two months in Goa. But the number of Westerners has dropped to about this winter. Dr. Shridhar Sharma, a psychiatrist who says he treats about 20 Westerners a year for drug-related disorders, said fewer are coming because an anti-smuggling drive and tighter border con- trols have made hashish trafficking from Nepal and Af- ghanistan more difficult. Local authorities are reluctant to crack down on the Westerners for drug possession or discourage their stays in Goa. Tourism officials have realized that even "hippies" in imitation-Indian costumes spend foreign exchange on food and lodging. In addition, most of the young travellers come from western Europe, the United States and rich travel markets Goa's government is trying to tap for traditional tourists. Goa's first luxury hotel is going up and another is in the plann- ing stage. The department of tourism is counting on the young travellers to spread the word back home and fill them up. Former shop instructor builds long lasting car Chewing record? Judy Blumstock, 13, of Hamilton, Ont., has her eye on a gum-chewing .record. After four days of chewing, she thinks she's set a world record in gum- chewing. As far as she knows nobody has ever tried it before.- "I just wanted to try for a world's record in something I could do." VANCOUVER (CP) Dave Bradwell, 24, has a car that can cruise at 160 miles an hour, won't rust, and which he says will last forever. And he built it himself. "I was watching TV one night and I started drawing the said Mr. Bradwell. "Once I saw it on paper I knew I had to do it. I quit my work and started on it in the garage the next morning." The project took about five months with Mr. Bradwell working as much as 16 hours at a time on the car. Having already built a few hot rods, the former high school shop instructor said he knew what he was getting into at the outset. He has gone through about in parts and materials alone, and the project still is not complete. To meet gov- ernment safety regulations for new cars, he must install impact-absorbing bumpers which will cost an estimated The car has an aluminum shell: To rivet it to the frame, Mr. Bradwell drilled about holes and'installed rivets. Three cheap drills met their end during that portion of the project. It cost him for the en- gine (a 425-cubic-inch rear- mounted V-8 normally used in the front-wheel-drive Toro- for aluminum sheets thick enough to last and last; and hundreds of dollars for instrumentation. The car has sufficient accel- eration to take it from zero to 65 miles an hour and back to a full stop within a city block. But Mr. "Bradwell stresses safety and durability. "It will last forever. -The Herald- Youth There's nothing to rust." Mr. Bradwell said repairs are easy to make and parts can be obtained almost any- where. "All the mechanical parts are available at any GM dealer in Kamloops or any- where else. There are a few Volkswagen parts but you can get those easily too." And, except for the addition of the regulation bumpers, the Car passed through the Van- couver safety test station with flying colors. Now that he has completed his first car, Mr. Bradwell said he envisions the possi- bility of building more, each a little different, and selling them.

Macbeth is shown on film and Misummer Night's Dream and Hamlet are video taped. Janet Evans, librarian, and Peter Clamp, language arts instructor, meet with the Grades 4 to 6 students. Ms. Evans says this is "purely a volunteer giving children the feel of language. Joan Waterfield, local dramatist and movie critic, will be speaking at p.m. Friday to a group of Grade 6 students interested in enacting a shortened version of Midsummer Night's Dream sometime this spring. 1975 CANADA WINTER GAMES EVENT TICKETS Tickets To All Events Available At: WINTER GAMES TICKET and INFORMATION CENTRE (Old Lethbridge Public Library Building) DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE 3rd Ave., 6th St. S. the following VENUE SITES BLMRMORE Sinpuns Stirs Silts Offlct BOW ISLAND SonHiini Mterti Co-Op CARDSTON Miym MM'S Wnr CURESHOLM Wilt'!

Campus Corner By RHONDA HUSTON Winston Churchill High School Musicals have become a tradition in WCHS, a part of school life. In the past, WCHS has put on excellent productions The Sound of Music, The King and I, Oklahoma and last year's Fmian's Rainbow. Once again, WCHS will present another fine show, March 19 through 22. The other city high schools have done productions in the past but it looks like WCHS will be the only one doing a musical this year. The chosen musical is'the Mikado', written by Gilbert and Sullivan. It is a comedy with a Japanese setting. The cast includes Marlin Howg as Nanki-Poo; Greg Martin Ko-Ko; David Cunningham, Fish-Tush; Derek Redman The Mikado; Barry Schmidt, Pooh-Bah; Rhonda Huston Yum- Yum; Louise Uitbeyerse, Pitti-Sing; IreneLagemaat, Katisha- and Diane Turner, Peep-Bo. This is a tale of two young people, Nanki-Poo, the Mikado's son, and Yum-Yum, who fall in love but each has been pledged to others. Many hilarious and entertaining events circle this love affair. A number of teachers are involved in the production and management of the play. Ellyn Mells, who teaches chorus and band at WCHS, is in charge of the music end of the show Paul Johnson, who is new on the staff, will be in charge of dramatics. He has moved here from Saskatoon but originally studied in England and has directed many high school plays and other amateur productions in Canada. Henry KraUse is the producer. It is his job to organize the show and make sure everything is co-ordinated and functioning Assisting on the committee of directors is Colin Turner Debbie Paskuski is student director. What would be a musical without a chorus? This will in- volve about 40 people. The total number of people involved in the production is 150 to 200.
