Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta A WHALE OF AN ACT Lolita, a female killer whale, jumps full length out of her tank at the Miami Soaquarium and touches a rubber boll 23 feet from the water's sur- face. The act involves quite an effort considering Lolita's slim weighing cut at pounds and measuring 17 feet in length. Ideas for world survival submitted by commission By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) World sur rival depends on building alter- natives to the present industrial- ized states, says the Canadian Commission for UNESCO in report to the federal environ- ment department. Elements of the new world must include reversal of popula- Air fares deadline extended MONTREAL (CP) The In- ternational Air Traffic Associa- tion has extended its deadline for unanimous agreement on an increase in worldwide air pas- senger fares until Jan. 28, a spokesman said today. The increased fares would be based on the devalued U.S. dol- lar. The original deadline set for agreement was Monday. Air Canada and Aerolineas Angentinas refused bo go with the increase decided on at a 10-day meeting in Geneva of 68 international scheduled air- lines which nded Jan. 14. The meeting agreed on a maximum seven-per-cent in- crease in all rates based on the U.S. dollar. An Air Canada spokesman said Monday the airline favors four-per-cent increase. Continued opposition will ne- c e s s i t a t e another full-scale IATA meeting to iron out the fares question. tion growth trends, a halt to economic growth in industrial- ized nations and internationa: standards o f environmental quality. The commission puts forward these ideas as part of the prepa- ratory work for the United Na- tions conference on the human environment next June in Stock- holm. The commission is an agency of the Canada Council and o) the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organi- zation. The commission says indus- trialized states have failed to solve problems of conflict and alienation. Their high productiv- ity depends on "contrived scarc- ities, artificial needs and high sodal costs." The world population expln- sion is a spin-off and environ- mental effects that are progres- sively more deleterious arise from high resource consump- tion. BUILD ALTERNATIVES "It is essential to strengthen different values and attitudes and to find better institutions, in short, to build alternative mod- els to the prevailing one." Highly industrialized coun- tries should adopt policies to re- verse their population growth trends. It would be ridiculous to advocate population control to undeveloped countries without adopting it for developing ones. The difficulties of making such a transition in countries such as the U.S. and Canada "are manifestly enormous." Some characteristics of the 'stable state" might be empha. sis on product durability, offi cial machinery for recycling, in- creased leisure time, radical change in the "competitive eco- nomic ethic" and greater recog- nition of the relationship be- tween individual behavior and collective self-interest. Industrial nations should make less developed nations fully aware of the environmen- ts] damage caused ny industrial development BO past mistakes are not repeated. International standards for environmental quality should be accorded high priority, under the aegis of the UN and its ex- perienced agencies. The Lethkidge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, January 28, 1972 Paws 33-44 Despite unemployment picture No policy change-Heath By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CFJ Despite fierce political opposition over Britain's worsening unemploy- ment picture, the Conservative government has decided to stick with current policies. Prime Ministe'r Edward Heath says the government will not be diverted from its present economic path in a search for "temporary popularity." Heath, appearing confident and optimistic, outlined his reaction to the unemployment situation Monday in reply to a blistering Labor party attack on his economic policies. The blast resulted from the announcement last week that unemployment has shot above Black power movement emerges in Australia By IAN McCAUSLAND SYDNEY (AP) The Black Power movement has come to Australia. It is only 30 militant and increasingly vociferous. Its militancy first emerged two months ago when 100 dem- onstrators, 70 of them aborigi- nes, clashed with police in Bris- bane during a march demand- ing Ihe return of tribal land. Recently, a pohce guard has been put on the federal minister For aboriginal affairs, Peter Howson, and on the first aborig- inal member of Parliament, Senator Neville Bonner, follow- ing the discovery of a "death list." There have been sevenl paint daubings, some .office windows smashed and a statue in a Syd- ney park destroyed by explo- sives. The movement baa borrowed the Black Panther party name, Afro hair style and the clenched fist symbol while it thinks up aboriginal names and insignia. For leaders it has seven self- styled field marshals. The most outspoken is Dennis Walker, 25-year-old son of abo- riginal poet Kath Walker. He was financial co-ordinator of the Aboriginal and Islanders Coun- cil in Brisbane until its govern- ment grants ran out. "The Panthers are a political education and self-defence says Walker. "It's the defensive violence of the people versus the oppressive violence of the system, or survival ver- sus money." But he adds: 'Going out and killing people uphazardly would nuke us just a terrorist group.... We must be strategic."

The prime minister said, how- ever, the government plans to introduce a fairly slve enlargement of industrial training schemes to help work- ers obtain new skills. There is also a possibility thai a new budget, to be introduced to about two months, will con- tain some further expansionary measures. PRICES CLIMBING Heath said Britain is suffering from both unemployment and inflation, a combination never experienced In the past. Prices have been climbing at an an- nual rale of more than 10 per cent. PM EDWARD HEATH Makes Stand Industry, Heath added, stag- nated under six years of Labor government which ended in 1970. Since then, he added there had been a "massive shakeout of employees" as industries began to modernize. The seasonally-adjusted employment rale now is 4.3 per cent, compared with the more usual level of well below two per cent. Labor Leader Harold Wilson unleashed a stinging attack on what he called the "prime min- ister's crime" in allowing unem- ployment to reach its current level. Switches stolen BELFAST (Beuter) Large areas of Northern Ireland are without street lighting because time switches in the lights have been stolen by guerrillas to trig- ger their time bombs. Electricity department offi- cials have said that in the last two years more than switches have been taken from Belfast alone. PLAN 3D SETTLEMENTS JERUSALEM (AP) Thirty new Jewish settlements will be established in the next four years, 14 of them in the Israel- xxupied Arab territories, Dr. flaanan Weitz, head of ihe Jew- ish Agency's settlement depart- ment, told the Zionist Congress. Ulster group angry BELFAST (CP) British troops made what angry Roman Catholics claimed was one of the biggest raids ever in Belfast when some 250 soldiers mounted a search in the Catholic strong- hold of Ardoyne. The British Army insisted it was only a relatively small- scale operation with all but two of the .persons seized later re- leased. HeporLs from the said more than 100 persons, de- scribed by residents as "men and were seized from so- cial clubs and driven off in trucks as women piled into the streets singing protest songs such as We Shall Overcome. But army headquarters said 59 persons were arrested and all but two later were set free. One of the persons detained was labelled a "significant" capture for the troops in their Battle against the outlawed Irish Republican Army guerrillas, sources said. BOMB UNCOVERED On the Irish border, the Brit- sh Army uncovered ttie largest 3omb yet planted to ambush 200-pounder hidden in two milk chums on a border road near Newry, 44 miles south of Belfast. The anti-personnel bomb was designed to throw shrapnel over a wide 'area with shotgun effect, an army spokesman said. "It was enormous compared with anything up to now." Sources sympatltetic to the RA said seven social dubs in the Ardoyne were raided by sol- diers. 10th ANNUAL ENDS SATURDAY, JAN. 29th THIS K YOUR LAST CHANCE TO SAVEl BAKER'S PRICE GUARANTEE If you purchdte one of then and find advert'utd far leu within the next 12 moiithi-we will refund the difference in cash!
