Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta How to vote Language bill Tory worry By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) The over- riding issue in the minds of most Conservative MPs is how members will vote on the bili- ngualism resolution Tuesday night. The resolution, to reaffirm the principles of the Official Languages Act, has Sfet off some of the most Intense be- hind-the-scenes negotiations for the party in this Parliament. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield has said he expects the 107-member caucus to present a united front in sup- porting the resolution, brought before the House last week for debate, but there is virtually no hope of this being achieved. Be- tween 10 and 20 Conservative MPs are expected to vote 327-2111 IS THE NUMBER OF THE STUDENT MANPOWER CENTRE WHERE STUDENTS SHOULD REGISTER FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYERS CAN HIRE STUDENTS. IT'S EASYI JUST CALL 327-2111 against the resolution. "It's closer to 10 says one party official. "We've con- vinced several to vote with the party, and we're working on others. We may get it down to six yet." Mr. Stanfield is anxious to present a united front, particu- larly since Prime Minister Trudeau has said the resolution would provide an opportunity for the Conservatives to stand up and be counted. He issued the challenge while charging that during the last election campaign some Con- servatives were making state- ments designed to divide the country. Party officials are keenly aware of the inter- pretations that may be placed on a split over the bilingualism issue. When tiie Official Languages Act was passed in 1969, there were 17 Conservatives opposing it. Eight are no longer in Par- one who is there is John Diefenbaker Albert) and he is not about to bow to any party pressures. "My speech Monday will not require any he says. "I could be alone, but I have been alone before.

'Trudeau admits toe law hasn't been administered as it should be, and now he wants to put the lasso around the neck of Parliament by having it ap- jrove of what the government lias done. "The government will in no way be bound by the resolu- Mr. Diefenbaker is not only opposing the resolution, he is calling on Canadians to write their MPs before the Tuesday night vote to express their feel- ings. "After that the howls of mortification will not be lis- tened to." Mr. Stanfield has proposed an amendment to the resolution asking the government to in- clude the nine guides announced last December by treasury board President Charles Drury. These guides, among other things, guarantee public service job protection to unilingual em- ployees beyond the terms out- lined when the act was passed. And they had the effect of de- laying the date for achieving bilingualism in the public serv- ice. The government will not ac- cept the amendment which, spokesmen say, would lead to inflexibility in the implementa- tion of the bilingualism pro- gram. Strike hits TV shows LOS ANGELES (AP) The Writers Guild of America and the Association of Motion Pic- ture and Television Producers broke off negotiations after two meetings. No new negotiations were sei in 'the guild strike that began 13 weeks ago. The guild is seeking higher pay and other benefits. More than 150 independen producers have signed a new contract with the writers. These companies, which produce nearly 50 per cent of the prime time television series, are a work on shows for next fall. But none of the major movie studios has signed the guild contract. NBC has postponed the start of its fall season by two weeks ABC and CBS have held off a postponement pending possibL settlement of the strike.

A S H series Army TV show explained By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) A number of television series lave been derived from, movies, M A S H may be the first to ignore the movie and go back to the original book for its in- spiration. The CBS series draws only its physical look and the use of the camp loudspeaker from the movie. The film was a hit, but whether its attitudes could have been sustained on television is problematical. Those who put the series together thought not and made some basic changes. There are three major dif- ferences between the series and the said McLean Ste- venson, the tall, lean Illinois na- tive who plays the chief sur- geon, Lt.-Col. Henry Blake. First the surgeons are highly skilled in the book and in the said Stevenson. "They are not in the movie." "Second, in the series, any joke in the operating room is strictly between the doctors. In the movie some of the jokes were directed at the patients. Third, we all wanted to be drafted, as everyone in the book was. In the movie they made Col. Blake a Regular Army Man." MADE MORE CREDIBLE These changes made the series reflect different attitudes and provided a more believable foundation for the off-duty an- tics of the surgeons of the mo- bile army surgical hospital. If you could show they were highly skilled, worked long hours and were dedicated to saving lives, then the foolish- ness grew naturally as a relief from the tensions. Stevenson came to M A S H with a background on the stage and improvisional acting and two years on the Doris Day Show. Still, he is a latecomer to acting. By the time he turned to acting at 31, he had been a salesman of hospital supplies land worked on the presidential COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT CITY OF LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC SWIMMING and MUSEUM SCHEDULE FACILITY 5 I Jun. 6 I Thun., Jun. 7 Jun. 8 I Set., 9 ISun., Jun. 10 Men., Jun. 1J FRITZ SICK Swim (adults only) 12 1 Swim (adults only) 12 1 p.m. Public Swim Swim (adults only) 12 1 Swim (adults only) 12-1 p.m. Public Swim p.m. and Swim 3-6 Swim 1 5 p.m. Family Swim 6 8 For Spring Maintenance LIONS Swim and Swim and Swim and Swim and Swim 1-5 and 6-9 Swim 1-5 and 6-9, Swim and p.m. HENDERSON Swim 1-9 Swim 1-9 Swim 2-9 Swim 1-9 p.m. SIR ALEXANDER SALT p.m. campaigns of his cousin and neighbor in Bloomington, HI., Adlai Stevenson. "I worked very hard at act- he said. "Sometimes so hard that it takes the fun out of it for other people." In another area, MASH also sets a precedent. It is the first TV military comedy to be fully aware of the horrors of war. In MASH, soldiers are wounded and occasionally die on the op- erating table despite the effort of surgeons. But in McHale's Navy, for in- stance, combat was a pastime the sailors amused themselves with when they ran out of other mischief. COULD BE VIETNAM' "The thing that would make us welcome in living rooms is that we react to the war, but we do not participate in Stevenson said. "We felt strongly about the war in Viet- nam. Although this is Korea in 1952, it could be Vietnam." One script hdided the cast called for the doctors to bear arms. "We asked the production people to leave the set and the cast went over it and we voted not to do he said. "It was unbelievable. So we got another script."
