It didn't cause a ripple among Hie hundreds of youths and al- leged youths gathered in the blue-and-gold General Assembly hall. For1 three hours the youths from around the world had heard of imperialism, dictator- ships, puppet regimes, fascism and nazism. The Canadian was Dorothy O'Donnell, a Marxist University of British Columbia student from Vancouver, who called on ito assembly to consider de- mands for expulsion of the dele- gations of South Vietnam. Demands for1 the expulsion of the South Vietnamese, and the South Koreans, were made in a well-orchestrated campaign launched by the Soviet-bloc HALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD Gory Martin Dispensing Optician 307 6th St. S. 327-7152 countries plus a couple of Com munist-dominated world youth groups.

The whole quarrelsome de- bate was to reopen today with ths delegates receiving recom- mendations from the assembly's steering committee on a num- ber of questions, including the seating of some delegations anc whether the young persons are to be regarded as individuals or as representatives of youth or- ganizations or countries. Thant opened the assembly, part of the UN's 25th anniver- sary celebrations, with a charge to the delegates to seek out the causes of world discontent. liPARKIUZAg MOTORHOTEL 11 -AND RESTAURANT (LICENSED) 0 Q I For the Prospective and Groom WATCH AND CUP THIS ADVERTISEMENT EACH FRIDAY FOR HINTS ON Uo Vyedal Does the brida wear jewelry? She often wears a pearl necklace which Is tho bridegroom's (jift to her, or a necklace or brooch which" is an heirloom in either her or his family. She may wear simple diamond or pear! earrings or a narrow bracelet, but that is that is ap- propriate. She wears her engagement ring on her right hand until after the ceremony, so that the wedding ring may be put on easily. What kind bouquet does the bride have? She may choose as elaborate or simple a one as she likes, in keeping with her wedding. An arm bouquet of calla lilies, roses, gladioli or other large, white flowers with greenery and white satin ribbons is most formal. Or she may have a bou- quet of orchids or gardenias, perhaps centring a targe bouquet of some other flowers. Many brides, even in very forma! weddings, now like to carry a prayer book, covered in ivory, while latin or leather, and on top a single or double orchid, gardenia or camellia tied with tiny white flowers and narrow satin streamers.

New priorities within educa- tion will be pre grade one education, life long education and a college system. A pre grade one facility for Calgary would be announced this week. Mr. Clark told a students' meeting at the University of Calgary the urgency of other major problems, such as pollu- tion, during the 1970s will re- quire better justification of what is spent on education. One way of possibly doing this was to make available to more people. It no longer was a question of wheth- er schools should operate 12 months a year but rather how htis could be done. Schools must broaden their influence and involvement in the community. Mr. Clark said he does not favor simply adding one more year to the existing 12-year program in establishing pre- grade one facilities. "Not all children require prs- grade one exposure to educa- tion." Such programs had to be co- ordinated with health, recrea- tion and other services. If the disadvantage were to be helped, parents also had to be involved. 20-Cent Cup Of Coffee Finds Way Into Menus TORONTO (CP) Tha 20- cent cup of coffee is finding its way into restaurant menus1 here.

TV Air Of Death Report Praised OTTAWA (CP) Running just about exactly counter to the findings of a special Ontario government committee, the Ca- nadian Radio-Television Com- mission Thursday released a re- port giving the CBC high marks for its controversial 1967 TV special on air pollution, Air of Death. "The program adequately re- flected the information reasona- bly available at the time of the broadcast and is well able to stand as an example of informa- tional programming backed by a wealth of research and serv- ing a useful the CRTC report said. The report thus was opposed to the Ontario committee study, which gave the program a past- ing for use of "unwarranted, un- truthful and irresponsible state- ments" and treating "a com- plex problem in a way designed to create alarm and fear." Air of Death, the CRTC report appeared as its avowed pur- pose, namely, to awaken the public to the very real dangers of air pollution." The report "recognizes the in- creased awareness of the public to problems of air pollution since the original broadcasting of the program Air of Death on Sunday, Oct. 22, 1967." It faulted the CBC handling on one main possibility of health hazards to humans as a result of fluoride fumes from fertilizer plant operations in the Dunnville, Ont., area.
