Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, July 7, 197J THI UtTHiHIDOl HIMLB f Arrival in London says Anne Campbell Singer By JANE PATEBSON MANCHESTER, LANCS (England) Monday, June 26, p.m. Is a moment to re- member for the 43 persons who embarked on a month-long tour with the Anne Campbell Sing- ers. I don't think the full impact of the trip hit anyone until we stepped on the bus, vraving goodbye and shedding the odd tear for Ihe 200 well-wishers who arrived at the civic centre to sec us off. The bus ride to Calgary was fairly uneventful, as most of the girls took it as an oppor- tunity to get the sleep they'd miss later on. Our stop at the Calgary airport was brief, giv- ing us only enough time to have our luggage weighed and checked through, end to buy gum for the trip. The girls were amazed that the suitcases they had strug- gled with only weighed 25-35 pounds on the average. The flight was a first for many of tiie girls. It proved to be a smooth one, and quite en- tertaining because our fellow- passengers .were n mixed col- lege choir from Medicine Hat, the Hepplewhyte Singers. The two groups carried on a singsong for Uio of the other passengers, and then at the insistence of Hie stew- ardesses, the Mini-Singers per- formed over the PA system. Our arrival in London at a.m. on June 27, was thrilling for all of us, even the returnees. Our group was taken from Gat- w i c k Airport to Hie Sheridan Hotel, whereupon all the girls were ordered to bed to rest. De- spite protests, most of us slept soundly for a good part of the afternoon. That evening, each of the group paid a visit either to Trafalgar Square or Piccadilly Circus, taking in all the sights in wide-eyed wonder. Wednesday was unbelievably fast-paced. We were up bright and early, and after a typical English breakfast of poached eggs, bacon, juice and tea (which we prefer to the muddy- tasting coffee over we Chinese capital basks in beauty By JAMES PRINGLE PEKING (Reuter) Gloomy has finally gone and the Chinese capital has burst again Into lile and color. The streets nre lined with acacias and walnut trees whose leaves are a vivid green. Old men with wispy beards and black skullcaps sit on the porches of'their homes wanning themselves in the sun. Toddlers from neighborhood Idndergartens wander by in long columns, each tenaciously clutching the jacket of the child to front. Old ladles -with bound that senseless legacy of the pre-revolution Manchu empire to the new street mar- kets that have appeared with winter's demise. Vegetables are plentiful, nnd the winter diet of cabbage is gratefully abandoned. State photographers at the city's huge Tienanmen Square do a busy trade with out-of-town visitors, posing for the ritual snapshot bcfora the Gate of Heavenly Peace. The Summer Palace, hot-sea- Bon playground of Ihe emperors in bygone days, is thronged with schoolchildren, eating picnic lunches around their red ban- ners. SOME COLORFUL GARB Among the crowded rowing boats on the lake, a Chinese flute lilts a haunting old mel- ody. And the national costumes of minority people from West- ern China provide a splash of color against the drab fatigues worn by the majority. The out-of-town sightseers, often with Thai or Burmese fea- tures, wear badges depicting the Chinese leader, Chairman Mao Tse-tung. Many of the citi- zens of the capital, more at- tuned to political trends, do not. Hundreds of cheerful women sell ices for some nameless, but apparently monolithic, state or- ganization. They arc every- where, especially at the zoo. Since the establishment of the People's Hepublic of China in 1949, an intensive tree-planting program in and around the city has rooted the soil more firmly. At the Summer Palace, the Jade Belt Bridge and the Gar- jjen of Harmonious Interests are set off by trees in blossom, like the delicate painting on an an- cient scroll But when a stiff breeze sets up, the air is full of wafting blooms for half an hour. When the wind drops, the trees have lost their fragile splendor. New '72 guide to St. Vincent The new official 1972-72 guide to St. Vincent and the Grena- dines is now available in Can- ada and may be secured free by writing the Canadian Rep- resentative, Eastern Caribbean Tourist Association, 980 Yonge Street, Toronto. boarded our bus for a sight-see- ing tour. The bus driver took us past such places as Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Memorial and Hall, Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, St. James' Palace (home of the Queen Westminster Abbey, the Parliament Build- ings, Number 10 Downing Street, and Big Ben. We found the architecture of these buildings fantastically beautiful. After the tour, our driver let us off in front of Buckingham Pslace in order that we might watch the Changing" of the Guard and the Horse Parade. Due to the huge crowds, the girls saw next to nothing and were, therefore, rather unim pressed with the ceremonies. Everyone, though, agreed that the uniforms, especially those of the Horse Guard, were "sim- ply smashing." The girls spent the afternoon either shopping in a variety ol downtown areas or continuing their louring. Wednesday evening the ma- jority of the choir attended the London stage production oJ Gone With the Wind. It was done and very enjoyable. Thursday we departed for Richmond-upon-Thames, visit- i n g Hampton Court, home of the infamous Henry VIII en route. Our concert Thursday eve- ning was sponsored by the Richmond Arts Council, as part of their annual festival. When we got there, Mr. Edward Bostock, chairman of the coun cil, very kindly gave us the use of his drawing-room for prac- tice, and had previously ar ranged billets for all the girls. On Friday evening he held a private gathering in his home during which time the Teen Clefs entertained. Mr. Bostock presented Mrs. Catnpbell ant each of the girls books concerning Great Britain at the close of the evening. Our first occasion to fee' very special came on the eve- ning we arrived in Richmond The Lord Mayor donned his fur-trimmed robe and his med- als and received each girl per- sonally at a reception held in our honor. The girls were extremely flsttered when they were an- nounced at the door of the room with a "Miss" or "Mrs." pre- ceding their names. During the reception, the mayor presented Mrs. Camp- bell with a miniature plaque bearing the coa'.-of-arms of the city. Today, while Canada cel- ebrates its 105th birthday, we are travelling along towards Manchester, where the au dience at our corxert will be totally unaware that the day is a special one for us. Don't worry we haven'1 forgotten. The choir sang JO Canada the minute we step- ped on the bus this morning. Look at it Plan a holiday with our affordable fares!
