Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Quite a story It is a unique feat to accomplish a hole-in-one, the odds against the average golfer ever getting are enormous. However, in the Fred Story family, odds do not appear to mean all that much. This year, thanks to a seven-iron shot, Fred and his wife each have one. Both came at the Country Club and on. the same hole, the seventh. It was the 16th when Fred got his, but the hole is the same, only the tee-box is altered. Mildred used a three-wood to chalk up her May 4. And this is a true- Story. _____ The sitting WILLIAM HARCOURT London Observer SYDNEY It was a dun party at the American base camp in the Queensland town of Atherton back in 1943. Bill Dargie, an official Australian war artist, decided to brighten things up. He found some bouse paint and brushes, went outside to the toilet and painted General Douglas MacArthur, pants down, sitting on a lavatory seat. The General's face is drawn, and he is obviously pre- occupied: diarrhoea was en- demic in those days, and rank SMART EXECUTIVES Lease Their Business and Personal Can BECAUSE Leasing can be lest expensive than buying leasing is time saving and convenient Leasing simplifies your tax records No cash investment required Per the complete en teasing contact KORESHENKOV, Uashtf and Insurance Rep. BENY AUTOMOTIVE ENTERPRISES LTD. and AVE. and 8th STREET S. Phone 328-1101 did not bring immunity. A few weeks ago the paint- ing was re-discovered in an Atherton garage. Bill Dargie, now Sir William Dargie, 61, says he can remember little about his painting of the Paci- fic supreme commander on a "dunny door', except that it did liven the party up. It was done shortly after Sir WilHam won the second of. his eight Archi- bald Prizes with a portnut of Corp. Jim Gordon, VC. Last week the painting of MacArthur was sold by the Atherton Church of England's Women's Guild to pay off a J6.000 debt on a new church. The buyer, at was W. R. SL lyusu who owns a zoo at Coolangatta, near Australia's surder's para- dise. Said Mr. Maughan: "It's the cheapest buy in Christendom.

International unions face breakaways New York Times Set-rice floor-mount- ed and gold-trimmed American flag stands in the middle of the snug, west Toronto office of the Retail Clerics International Union, which has its head- quarters in Washington. It is one of many international unions here facing breakaways by dissident members in the ig row in Canada over control of the country's United States based labor movement. Clifford Evans, a Canadian and the union's Toronto manag- er, doesn't necessarily agree that the big American flag in a Canadian trade union office, hiding a Canadian one just as big behind, it, is the clearest symbol of who really runs his union. Evans, who began his work- ing career in Canada about 20 years ago as a store clerk, is quick to say that his union of Canadian members is not too concerned about raids on its locals. These locals extend from big cities like Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to Canada's Arctic, where a single local of the Retail Clerks claims the nine employees of a far north Hudson's Bay Co. general store. The retail clerks, with 000 North American members, is only one of a growing list of big United States based unions here that are suffering from attacks by their national- ist membership and break- away leaders. In Canadian industries such as pinnary steel, aluminum and copper smelting, pulp and paper and railways, small, nationalis- tic splinter unions are spring- ing up, drawing away members from such U.S. union giants as the United Steelworkers, Inter- national Woodworkers of Amer- ica, Retail Clerks Internation- al and Brotherhood of Locomo- tive Engineers. The_small but militant at- tack against Evans' union is typical of the number of at- tacks taking place in other in- ternationals across Canada. Last year's Tom Bees, New- foundland regional director for the retail clerks broke away from the Canadian Merchandis- ing Employees Union in Mon- treal. So far, he iias organized top markets, a small Montreal store chain, and says be has 300 members in his new union. But the really big targets for Bees are the large super- markets of Steinberg's and Mi- racle Mart in the booming Mon- treal region, Canada's largest city, where be plans to chal- lenge the retail clerks repre- sentation of supermarket clerks when their collective agreee-" ments expire late next fall Even though Rees' new union is small compared with tne re- tail clerks, the actions of the C.M.E.U. and other recent break-aways remind skeptics of the nationalistic trend begun last November when the employees of a big United Steelworkers at the big refin- ery of the Aluminum Co. of Canada, Ltd., in Kitimat, B.C., voted in the new and aggres- sive Canadian Aluminum Smel- ter and Allied Workers Union. The main reason given was the United Steelworkers' alleg- ed growing neglect of the Kiti- mat local with the Toronto headquarters about miles away. Whatever the reason, since last fall the rising number of small new unions, now linked together in the member Canadian Council of Unions based in Toronto, have had other successes. The Canadian Labor Con- gress, whose membership of almost two million is made up mainly of big U.S. based un- ions, reacted recently to the growing pattern of break-aways from the internationals and an- nounced a high-powerred "na- tional organizing committee" to "defend affiliates ugainat raid? by outsiders."
