Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta jMiwry 17, IfTl 1M UTHHIPOI MUID It Big tourist attraction at Long Beach Queen Mary toast of the coast By CURTIS J. SITOMER CbrlitlM Science Monitor Service LONG BEACH, Calif. The night tog creeps into Long Beach Harbor here enshroud- ing a Queen. But the dazzling glitter of her new "court" tie mist and the lilt of music from her chambers echoes across this once lazy southern California port. The monarch is Queen Mary the proud and untouch- able lady of the Atlantic. But where British dukes, Italian counts, and Wall Street barons once strolled her decks, tour- ists now wander. Convention delegates foregather where the wealthy waltzed their way to Europe. And In the staterooms the octopi and other creatures of the sea peer through the thick glass walls of their tanks. Yes the Queen is popular again as a convention cen- tre, oceanographic museum, and general tourist attraction. Coal cars derailed at Jasper JASPER (CP) The CNR's main east west line was clear- ed Saturday night, about 24 hours after 18 coal cars were derailed and 350 feet of track torn up. There were no injuries Fri- day night when part of an 85- car train were derailed 20 miles east of Jasper or 200 miles west.of Edmonton. The diesel units of the train remain- ed upright. Passengers on eastbound and westbound trains were trans- ferred by bus around tbe derail- ment scene while the track was being repaired.

And as the Christmas season arrived, London type jitneys started to shuttle visitors to the Queen's newly opened grand oceanog r a p h i c exhibition- Jacques Costeau designed "The Living Sea."

Among other things, the oceanographer foresees the day wben man will be equipped to tend under ocean crops and "raise, herds of whales that graze in pastures of pbaktoi." Ironically tht which never sustained a direct "hit" on the Atlantic during tbe Sec- ond World War, encountered violent cross soon after she dry docked op the California of tbe Pacific. At first, union squabbles de- layed her reconditioning indef- initely. Then the city became embattled with prospective con- cessionaires. A spate of law- suits ensued. And a taxpayers group here in Long Beach, Ired burgeoning renovating costs which had zoomed from an es- timated M.6 million to mil- lion, tried to recall four city coundhnen who had staunchly backed the Queen Mary pro- ject. The recall failed. And tbe other political and economic swells subsided.
