(CP) Roger Dean Adams, 19, was mauled to death by two lions at a zoo Saturday night when he fell into their den.

Curfew Lifted PORT OF SPAIN (CP-Reu- ters) The government of Prime Minister Eric Williams has lifted the nighttime curfew clamped on Trinidad when a state of emergency was de- clared April 21 to halt Black- Power demonstrations. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE! Flag Attitudes: LONDON (AP) Pennj W h a r t o n, 22-year-old Londoi secretary, wears her country's flag on her panties and tosses waste paper into a Union Jack bedecked basket labelled "Brit ish rubbish." Desecrating the flag? "Hadn't thought of it thai said Penny. "I just think the red, white and blue colors are fab. Anything The answer was a sharp "yes" from James Scott, 80- year-old patriot who had just been told he needed special per- mission to build a 15-foot flag- pole outside his home near Lon- don. Attitudes to the national flag in Britain are diffuse and com- plicated. Many British youngsters, to the fury of their elders, treat the Union Jack as a kind of af- fectionate joke. But an Associated Press sur- vey showed that, throughout Eu- rope and the Middle East, na- tional flags seem to be regarded jy the public either with indif- ference or as an untouchable imblem of nationhood that rises above politics. Here ic a breakdown of atti- :udes. Union Jack is at once a symbol of lost greatness :o the older generation and a sort of satirical game to the young. STILL POPULAR Tile flag, born 354 years ago after the union of the crowns of England and Scotland, is gener- ally a feature of political rallies staged by the governing Con servatiye party. The opposilioi Laborites don't push the flag. There is no law in Britaii against burning Ihe Union Jacl or any oilier national flag, but a Scotland Yard spokesman said: "If all tills flag burning gol out of hand, don't worry, we'( have 'em on conduct liable to create a breach of the peace." The Union Jack-which took its name from King James I be- cause, in his 17th century way he signed his name "Jacques." blasphemy'" points up one of Germany's car- dinal problems. Three West German youths recently were prosecuted for hauling down and destroying Communist East Germany's flag as it flew for (lie East-West German summit talks at Kassel, West Germany. Tlie youths were accused only of damage to property. In fact, the West and East German flags are almost identi- cal-black-red-gold from top to bottom-but tile Communist ver- sion bears a hammer and com- pass symbolizing the "workers and farmers state." West German law lays down an unspecified jail sentence for convicted of desecrating lie flag, but the offence is rare and the flag, according to ob- servers, "is no subject of popu- lar emotion." France h e tricolor has liven way as a symbol of revolt ,o the black flag of anarchy and he red flag of communism. During the riots of May, 1968, a 'eterans' organization protested As Joke Some Nations against students who tore up tlie French flag to keep only tlie rci part. But there was no pr'osecu tion. the flag is criminal offence punishable b> one to three years in jail, bul police say it's rare. In fact, (hey say there is no record of anyone even being accused of flag dese- cration in recent years. Holland countries have no huvs govern- ing the use or misuse of flags. Current Swedish law prescribes a fine or a maximum months in jail for "offences against national but the government itself has pro- posed to drop any severe sent- ences in the future. Soviet hammer and sickle is normally flown only from government build- ings, airports and oilier official places. No protesls against (lie flag liavs been recorded in pub- lic. Tlie Soviet criminal code provides for sentences of up to two years "deprivation of lib- erty" for desecration of Ihe slate flag. In the Arab countries of tlie Middle East, the national flag is Ireated with great respect. But Lebanese right-wingers recently dentified themselves with the Stars and Stripes ;n a battle with leftist groups on the Amer- ican University campus in Bei- rut. Some cars in the Lebanese capital carry stickers showing tlie American flag with the mes- iage-familiar t o Americans: 'Love it or leave it." npl VI ft.

Ghost Crews Leave Suez CAIRO (Reuters) The last of the British "ghost crews" left the Suez Canal Sunday and four ships stranded there since the 1967 Arab Israeli war were abandoned. The freighters Port Invercar- gill Scottish Star Melampus tons) and Agapenor tons) lay forlorn and silent at. anchor, unlikely ever to sail again. The canal's Bitter Lake prob- ably will become a graveyard for Ihe British vessels and 30 other foreign ships trapped there. With daily air and artillery battles raging more fiercely every day across the waterway, the vessels deteriorating and no tope whatever of the canal's being cleared, the owners final- ly called it a day. j Heath: Dream Impossible Dreams LONDON (Reuters) Prime Minister Edward Heath has called on the British people to. dream impossible dreams and stop settling for the second-rate.
