Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 62 TH6 IETHBRIB6E HERALD Wednejdoy, June 6, 1973 Taking a break Transistor sister, Spainish style, as 82-year-old Eliosa Arnedo of Madrid takes a break from peddling end candy fo listen to the latest news about a bull fight. Paris absorbs blow JRfv NAV nORKKTSOX New York Times Service PARIS Paris, which calls itself "the City of Light." has just received a slinging blow to its vanity which is con- siderable. A massive, government-or- dered report says that the city's dominance as a world capital of culture has drainsd away to London and other cit- ies. Nor can it any longer claim to be an important in- ternational center of business and finance The study con- cludes that Paris is now run frtr the sole purpose of econom- ic development. It says that the authorities who are shaping its destiny have failed to take ac- count of one crucial fact: the economic and political future of the city is strictly depend- ent on its cultural influence and heritage, its sociological atmos- phere and its quality of life. In short. Paris is in danger of losing its soul. The survey was ordered by the French ministery of plan- ning, took two years to com- plete, and will be made public at the end cf June. An 80-page summary is now available to the press, and excerpts from it were splashed over Paris newspapers recently. The report detail's the disen- chantment about Paris of some 200 "personalities of interna- tional stature" in the worlds of art, letters, journalism, fi- nance, business and high levels of the civil service. The ma- jority of them are not French. They gave their opinions in lengthy interviews conducted in eight countries: France, Bel- gium, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Great Britain and the United Slates. The summary did not name them. Their criticisms went much deeper than the usual com- j the "effervescent" cultural stimulation and freedom of ex- jpression for which Paris was universally celebrated are wan- ing. London is now the univer- sal magnet for young artists, craftsmen, fashion designers and writers, drawn by the Brit- ish capital's more open -way of life. In Paris, fresh or unorth- odox currents of creativity are progressively being stifled, sterilized and discouraged by an unsympathetic and rigid government bureaucracy. The city is "ignorant of contempor- j ary developments in the arts." j new plays which are en- joying the most success in Paris are virtually all by for- eign authors, notably English, American and German "Theater in Paris, if not ex- actly dead, seems to be one of the persons in- terviewed remarked. "By con- trast, English theater is vivid- ly alive. There is fantastic ac- tivity in London." nothing new that is native- ly French is happening on the Paris art scene. Increasingly, it is overshadowed by exiting exhibitions and festivals in such provincial cities as Avig- non. Bourges, Bordeaux, Nancy" and Rennes. commercial development, chaoac and unchecked, is ruin- ing the city's charm and per- sonality. London and Brussels out- strip Paris by far as interna- tional business hubs. Only a dozen of the big multinational firms have their European headquarters here. a total of 172 foreign banks are represented in London as against 56 in Paris. The depos- its in them are six times big- ger than those in the French capital. The energetic young team that pulled togeth3r and the prices, choking traffic jams, the "legendary reputation among foreigners" of a badly functioning telephone system and the skyscrapers thai are everywhere brutalizing its once- matchless vistas.

The re- search they coordinated was based on many other sources besides the 200 interviews. Their investigation showed, they said, that the philosophy of Paris had passed from "the amenities to cost-effective- ness." "What makes a city an inter- national attraction is not its economic power, its size or its they said. Much more profoundly, "it is the life- style that it offers. Paris has decided to sacrifice that life- style."

The orrfar-in-council call- ing for the original tightening up has been rescinded. Back injuries costly business By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) The greatest mistake man ever made, suggested a recent BBC television program, was to stand on two legs. From then on, the world's most widespread ailment after the common cold was bound to be backache. Back pain of various kinds costs British industry around million million) a year, with more lost working days than are caused by strikes. Every day, some workers stay home nursing their aching spines, which, as an orthopedic surgeon on the BBC program pointed out, were never evolved to stand on end, but rather to act as a "coat-hanger" for the body, supported by two limbs at ei- ther end. Because of the difficulty of x-raying the spine and exam- ining those critical, jelly-like discs cushioning its bo .torn links, doctors know little about what causes the myriad of back pains, the program said. Scanty amounts have been spent on research in Britain. The Arthritis and Rheuma- tism Council has only just szt aside for the purpose. But a British executive who injured his back six years ago and was exasperated by the lack of research has done something about it. Stanley Grundy, a member of the Institute of Directors, approached this eminent busi- ness organization for funds to sponsor a research founda- tion. After some initial diffi- culties, this now is in baing, a registered charity known as the Back Pain Association. The first of its kind in the West, the association's object is to raise funds for research and build up data on all as- pects of back pain. In 1971, it helped set up a body of ex- perts, both medical and non- medical, called the Society for Back Pain Research, which meets twice a year to ex- change information. Members now number about 80 and include or- thopedic surgeons and rheu- matic specialists from Britain and overseas. Another project initiated by Grundy's association is a Back Pain Research Clinic in Bath, the elegant Somerset spa town whose naturally hsated springs make it an ap- propriate treatment centre for such maladies. A computer has been installed to handle data on many varieties of back complaint.
