20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 11, 1972 Church group protests statue BRAMALEA, Ont. (CP) Forty members of All Peo- ple's Church here have signed a petition protesting the planned placing of a 10-foot nude Indian slalue at the front door of the new Chingua- New housing starts show increase OTTAWA (CP) Construc- tion started during June on new houses and apart- ments, an increase of 20 per cent from June last year, Cen- tral Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported Monday. The June housing starts, In urban centres of popula- tion and more, represented an annual construction rate for all Canada of the federal government housing agency said. The rate for the second quarter of 1972 was which CM.KC said down only slightly from the high rate of recorded in the first three months of the year. Actual construction starts for the first six months of 1972 ran to up 24 per cent from the same period of last year. Starts on single family dwell- ings were up by 61 per cent, while starts on apartments and other multiple-dwelling con- struction were up by nine per cent. c o u s y Township municipal building The petition, presented today to llecve rtobcrt Wil- liams by Rev. Edward Robin- son, said Ihe wooden statue, carved by a Vancouver Island artist, violates Christian prin- ciples, morality and decency. The township, just north- west of Toronto, originally or- dered the statue with an appropriately-placed fig leaf. But when it arrived and was uncrated, it was found the Irxlian artist didn't include the leaf. Reeve Williams i m m c d i- ately had it put hack info the case and placed under guard in a storage garage but de- cided that, despite the lack of a fig leaf, the statue would adorn the building when it is officially opened by Premier William Davis of Ontario. Mr. Robinson said he is or- ganizing support to have the statue exhibited somewhere other than at the city centre. 'SPARE THE CHILDREN' 'A lot of Christians wouldn't want their children to see he told the reeve. The statue, called Kwa Kiuth, is a replica of statues used as lodge poles in Indian lodges to welcome visitors. Mr. Robinson said the pro- motion of nudity had led to the downfall of many ancient kingdoms, and 'it is not a light matter." He suggested the statue be displayed in Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum instead. Reeve Williams said the pe- tition will be presented to the council at its next meeting. Sailor is jilted in love search FALMOUTH, England (AP) A lone sailor who crossed oceans in search of love was lonelier still Monday.

Freighter sunk SAIGON (AP) U.S. officials in Saigon said two internal ex- plosions tore through the ton British freighter London Statesman Monday and the stern of the ship settled on the bottom of Kha Trag harbor in about 36 feet of American officials said the blasts were believed caused by explosives plnnlcd by saboteur stevedores. At first it, was be- lieved thtit the explosions might be due to mines. "There is no loss of life no casualties as far as we said n spokesman for the British cmbn.ssy. "We're not yet aware of Ihe full cxlcnt of the damage." The ship had just [ini.shrd un- a nio of riee il had popped the question. For him it had been love at first sight, but the typist, attractive, fair-haired 25-year-old Bar- bara Hill, wasn't so sure. When she had to fly home to England in the spring of 1970, she still had not given him her answer, so Tait decided to follow her half way across the world in his 34 foot homemade ketch, Maola. At each port of call Tait cabled Miss Hill his love, but the voyage ended in heart- break for the Australian. In a waterside cafe at Fal- mouth on Monday, less than two days after he stepped ashore, Miss Hill gave Tait her answer. It was No. On a pavement crowded with vacationers, they shook hands and parted for the last time, Tait to return to his hoat in the harbor and Miss Hill to her home in Derby. Before she left Mis Hill told friends: "When we met again I realized I couldn't go through with it because my feelings for Graeme had changed." As he returned dejectedly to his boat, Tait said: For two years I've thought of nothing else but Barbara. That's what kept me on course for England. I was hoping that she would say Yes. Now it's all off. 'It happened so quickly that I'm still in a daze. I got the feeling on Sunday that some- thing was wrong, but still went on hoping. 'I was even willing to sell my boat, which is all I pos- sess, and get a job in England to give Barbara time to make up her mind."
