Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Beat Prince Now Real Charmer By ART1IUK SPIEGELMAN LONDON (Reuters) Prince Charles has con- quered shyness with all his mother's seriousness, spiced with his father's humor. The shyness which some said seized1 him in the presence ordinary people has been replaced by a quiet assurance and an easy, open manner as he goes about his royal rounds. The latest round is a 14-day tour of Canada, wlucli the 21-year-old prince has just started. The North American visit ends with a two-day stay at the White House. His progress from being an unprepossessing scnooi- boy with rather large ears and an unruly hank ot hair to a self-assured young prince of the realm per- haps had its turning point in the preparations for his investiture as Prince of Wales, which took place one year ago. It was then that his eight titles-Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Great Steward of Scotland-fell heaviest on his shoulders. Wales, it was said, did not want anotner Eng- lish prince. With good humor and the bonus of a highly-witty radio interview, he slowly won over the Welsh. Like A Professional He started the interview like a pro, calmly ask- ing the interviewer if he had trouble finding the Palace. Then he went on to speak for the first time of his fears about the investiture. The broadcast start- ed the process which won over the Welsh. On the eve of the investiture in the rum of Caernarvon Castle, a brigade of grand- down for the night in the wet mam street in hopes of getting a close glimpse of their prince the next day. He also spent eight weeks learning Welsh at the university of Aberystwyth. His tutor there, Edward MiUward, a former vice-president of the Welsh Na- tionalist party, said: "After tills is over, I don't know whether Charles will become a nationalist or me a royalist." Earns BA Degree After Caernarvon, the prince returned to Cam- bridge where this year he passed his bachelor of arts degree amid general praise and became the first, member of the Royal Family to have earned a degree. While at Cambridge he starred in several students revues, and won high praise as a comedian. Charles' easy humor these days contrasts sharp- ly with the time when ha was 14 and a reporter caught him asking for a cherry brandy on the Scot- tish isle of Sornoway. To the prince, this was his most embarrassing moment. "I went to a hotel to have a meal and, while wait- Ing a lot of people were looking in the he once said of the incident. "So I thought 'I cant bear this any more' and went off somewhere else. "The only other place was the bar. "Having never been to a bar before the first thing I thought of doing was h a v i n g a drink and being terrified not knowing what to do I said the first drink that came into my head, which happened to be cherry brandy. "Hardly had1 I taken a sip when the whole world exploded around my ears I was ready to pack my bags and leave for Siberia." He stayed and Britain now looks forward even- tually to the rule of -good King Charles. Curfew Imposed Full-Scale War Feared In Riot-Torn Ulster BELFAST (AP) House-to- house battling between Roman Catholic dissidents and British soldiers ngfid through the night in this Northern Ireland capital, but the puns grew quiet as dawn broke today. The night of violence, one of the worst so far in the capital, left five civilians killed, includ- ing two snipers, authorities said. In addition, 70 civilians, 19 soldiers and one policeman were injured. There were 154 arrests. As soon as the shooting stopped the soldiers started a house-to-house search of the en- tire area, and military head- quarters said a curfew would remain in force until further no- tice. An army spokesman said today that the arms search in the predominantly Roman Cath- olic Lower Falls district had un- covered 23 pistols, 25 rifles, two sub-machine-guns, one carbine, six grenades, six packs of explo- sives, 100 incendiaries, two shot- guns and rounds of am- munition. Residents were not allowed to leave their homes for any rea- son, but an army spokesman said the restriction might be lifted for about two hours later in the day so housewives could do their shopping for the week- end. Only essential services such as bread and milk deliveries and ambulances and fire trucks were permitted to enter the 50- block curfew zone. All vehicles were being searched. FEAR FULL WAR Many observers believed the fighting could no longer be con- sidered communal rioting be- tween Roman Catholics and Protestants, but had become open war between Britain and Irish republicans. The night-long violence started with an army raid on an arms cache in a Roman Catho- lic stronghold. Protesting Roman Catholic crowds swelled into rock- and bottle-throwing mobs, and the melee turned into a full-scale battle between civil- ians firing automatic weapons and some British soldiers. No Irish Protestants were be- lieved involved in the fighting near the city centre. Other parts of the country were quiet. SAYS TIME COME "Don't underestimate this sit- said a Northern Ireland government source. "This i s the crunch has come for tte troublemakers." Eleven persons have been killed in the current crisis. Six were killed last weekend in bat- (ling between Roman Catholics and Protestants. The violence started with Roman Catholic demonstrations in opposition to the jailing of Bernadette Devlin, a 23-year-old member of the British Parlia- mand who is an outspoken advo- cate of civil rights for Northern I r e 1 a n d 's Catholic minority. Miss Devlin was sentenced _ to six months in prison for leading anti-Protestant riots in Northern Ireland last summer.

UP TO FEEDLOTS "But a lot will depend on whether the feedlots- make enough animals available to keep the plants at capacity he added. U.S. competition for feeder stock from southern Alberts is expected to sharpen. Mr. Crowston also estimated that when the two new projects are completed, meat packing plant capacity in Lethbridge will roughly equal that existing in Calgary. ON GUARD IN BELFAST A small boy stands behind barbed wire watching a British' soldier on guard duty in the Foils Road area of Belfast Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old prince danced until follow- ing a dinner at Government House, leaving matrons and maidens bedazzled in his wake. It was a foEow-up to a Government House garden party earlier in the day, where Senator Josie Quart showed up to meet the prince for the second time. "You were so sweet this morning, I wanted to meet you said she. His charm continued into the evening when festivi- ties moved to the ballroom. There he danced mostly with Jocelyne Rouleau blonde, 21, pretty, and the niece of Prime Minister Trudeau. He also danced with Julie Maloney, 19, Miss Can- ada for 1969, whose earlier partner the afore-men- tioned Mr. Trudeau came on dashing in a linen suit, white bucks and an Apache scarf.

Cabinet Shift Seen TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says Prime Minister' Trudeau is expected to re-or- ganize his cabinet this summer to create a cabinet committee with responsibility- for co-ordi- nating federal policy and pro- grams affecting cities. The newspaper, which gives no sources for its report, says Robert Andras, the minister without portfolio now responsi- ble for housing, likely would preside over'the committee with full ministerial rank. It also is anticipated that Mr. Truueau will create a depart- ment of citizenship by taking the citizenship branch from the secretary of state's department, and adding to it the Indian af- fairs branch of the department of northern development and In- dian affairs. Robert S'canbury, the minister without portfolio responsible for citizenship and Information Canada, would be the leading candidate to assume responsi- bility for the new department, the Globe says. OTTAWA (CP) Rotating postal walkouts resumed Friday and Postmaster-General Eric Kierans hinted that the govern- ment may be ready to counter- attack after a. month of sitting tight through delivery disrup- tion. The minister said in a tele- phone interview that "some de- cisions may be taken by the cabinet next week" if the rotat- ing strikes continue. Friday's walkouts closed 98 offices in Eastern Canada and eight in northern British Colum- bia, following a three-day recess when all postal workers re- ported for duty to collect their pay cheques and qualify for July 1 holiday pay. They accounted for workers off the job. Meanwhile negotiators for the treasury board and the postal unions met for half an hour and agreed to resume talks Monday. Mr. Kierans said the complete closing down of the postal serv- ice is among the options he might present to cabinet next week, but would not elaborate on other possibilities. NO DEFINITE PLAN An aide to. the minister said there was nothing definite planned to deal with the walk- outs and suggested that Mr. Kierans might have been speak- ing out of frustration. Post office officials estimated Friday that man-days have been lost as a result of the dispute as of June 29.

ROME (API Portugal's ambassador to the Vatican, called home in a sudden diplo- matic blowup between his coun- try and the Holy See, new to Lisbon today but predicted that he would return. Ambassador Eduardo Brazao sought to dampen speculation that Lisbon may break diplo- matic relations with the Vati- can. Asked before he boarded his plane whether he would be back in Rome, he said: "I hope so. I am almost sure of it." He said his recall was "a nor- mal call for consultations in what for .is is a very unpleasant matter." But Brazao made no attempt to hide Portugal's irritation over an audience granted by Pope Paul last Wednesday to rebel leaders from Portugal's three African territories. The brief audience touched off the most serious crisis between the Vatican and'a Roman Cath- olic country in more than a cen- tury. Portugal delivered o for- mal protest to the Vatican and then recalled Brazao. In Lisbon, Brazao's recall caught most diplomatic observ- ers by surprise. And most citi- zens of the predominantly Roman Catholic country didn't even know about it because of a strict censorship ban imposed on the "news by the government.
