Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
Van Luven Picture, if you will, a bedroom in Ottawa, furnished in something far more classy than the usual fake pecan bed and dresser set. The occupants are having a bedtime .chat: "Do you love me, dear? Tell me the truth now, Margaret." "Don't be ridiculous Pierre. Why wouldn't I love you? Haven't you told me often enough how lucky I am to have "Wei! then, let me phrase the question differently do you like "This isn't at all your usual style, Pet. Whatever became of all that bounce and "Ah, Peg, I just don't know. Ever since I made that speech in Prince Albert (or was it North Battleford? I never can keep those outposts straight) I've been haunted. You know the speech: 'you don't have to like Trudeau, just compare him to the rest'. I said you and the boys liked me and ever since then, people have been stopping me, wherever I campaign, to ask how I can tell for sure whether or not my infant son likes me. They say they've always wondered if their kids liked them, but haven't known how to gauge it" "Well really, Pierre "And so I began to wonder how do I know for certain that Sacha and Justin do like their daddy? Maybe if I could just go and wake the little nippers up, to ask them The scene shifts to another bedroom, where the furnishings are maritime-colonial: "Tell me, ah, Mary, do, ah, you think, um-er, Margaret and the kids really like "I don't see why not. He is a fine physical specimen. He swims and dives like a dolphin. He can kick a football without muffing it or grimacing like a constipated lobster." Another couple, a bedroom with spartan overtones: "Sophie, my little comrade, do you honestly think Margaret and those two kids with the weird names really like Trudea? They aren't just hanging around for his corporate "Humph. I don't see why you're asking me. You're the one who's been his political bedfellow for the past In a bedroom decorated in French provincial: "Suzanna, ma petite chou, has Trudeau still got his "Of course not, Real, you have confiscated all the Gallic charm in Canada for yourself." And finally: "Olive, where are you? Oh, I didn't see you standing there, dear. Do you think that jackanapes Trudeau had any business boring those fine folks up there in northern Saskatchewan with all that garbage about his wife and kiddies? What's that you say, Olive?

JEAN DIETL DIAMOND CITY The Lethbridge Herald FOURTH SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, June 8, 1974 Pages 29-40 Retirement still means activity By TERENCE SMITH New York Times Service JERUSALEM "She's not going to sit and knit, I can promise you Golda Meir's secretary and close confidant, Mrs. Lou Kaddar, told a visitor "For one thing, she never learned how." Mrs. Kaddar, who has been through it all with Mrs. Meir, from the early days in the Israel embassy in Moscow to the last five years in the premier's office, was talking about her boss's future plans. As she talked, she thumbed through the papers on her desk. They included offers of honorary degrees from universities, dozens of speaking invitations, tentative schedules for overseas trips. "Se won't be Mrs. Kaddar said. At p.m. on June 3, the former Golda Meyerson of Milwaukee concluded a half- century of public service that began shortly after she arrived in Palestine in 1924. She rose from the premier's chair in the Knesset, or parliament, and walked quietly to a seat among the labor Office held pleasures, frustrations party benches. The next day she turned over her office to the new premier, Yitzhak Rabin. On Wednesday she formally resigned from the Knesset, her last official post. Although she declined any immediate interviews, one suspects Mrs. Meir took her leave from the premiership with mixed emotions. A mixture, probably, of relief that the burden had finally been lifted, and regret that she had not .followed her strong inclination to step down last summer. She genuinely wanted to retire then and let someone else lead the labor party into the elections that were scheduled for Oct. 31. But the party was badly divided and, lest it splinter over the choice of a successor, Mrs. Meir agreed age 75 to run again. The next eight months were pure hell. A war, for which Israel was woefully unprepared, erupted on Oct. 5, raged for nearly three weeks, and ended inconclusively. An acrimonious election campaign followed, then two months of exhausting negotiations to produce a coalition government that was from birth. With angry lemonstrators shouting lutside her office and home. Mrs. Meir resigned on April 11. The last month of her term was the best. Long days and nights of negotiations through secretary of state Kissinger finally produced a rewarding result: the troop- separation agreement with Syria and an end to the costly war of attrition on the Golan Heights. Two days before she stepped down, the first Israeli prisoners of war came home. "They were bitter months for Golda one of her aides observed, speaking of the postwar ordeal. "Probably the toughest of her life." And yet, paradoxically, if Mrs. Meir could do it over again she probably would. She has never been one to back away from a fight and one suspects that she would have been even more anguished last October had she been on the sidelines. It is not her nature. The period ahead may. be difficult for her. Unaccustomed to leisure, she may well fight it. How does one learn to relax at 76? In historical terms, Mrs. Meir probably will be pictured as the last of the founders, who in June. 1974, finally gave way to the generation of the sons. She will probably be accused of having stayed on too long a criticism she may well echo herself. She will also bear part of the blame for Israel's unpreparedness on Oct. She was premier and there is no escaping the fact that Israel had lulled herself into a perilously false sense of security. Finally, she may be accused of failing to recognize the centraiity of the Palestinian problem in Israel's dilemma. For years she resisted even the notion that there was such a thing as a Palestinian people with a craving for a national identity not unlike her own. She acknowledged it only recently and reluctantly. But one thing can be said in her defense on that score. She was not alone. -The Herald Family Polling locations deter handicapped TORONTO (CP) Jane Plumb, chairman of the handicapped of Etobicoke, said people who have to use wheelchairs are prevented from voting because few polling stations are selected with them in mind. People in wheelchairs cannot get up and down steps. Mrs. Plumb said. She is afraid that most of the polling stations for the July 8 federal election in her borough will be in schools or churches which are not accessible for the handicapped. "This is not she said. "Handicapped people feel as though they are second-class people anyway. "If they can't vote, what have they got? They are so pushed down, time and time again, many of them retire into a cocoon. Something has to be done." But Ernest Farrow, an Etobicoke controller and the returning officer for the riding, said polling stations in the riding have been selected so that in many cases as possible there is one step at most involved. "It's almost impossible to find anything that hasn't at least one he said. Post haste DOVER.

"Many doctors are very pesimistic about acute leukemia and don't refer their patients to special centres.'' Dr. Arneault said. "Physicians must be educated to the progress we are making." he told a two- day national conference on acute leukemias. About 350 Canadian researchers and lab technicians attended. "At least 60-per-cent of patients with acute iymphoctic leukemia will survive five years or more with treatment." Dr. St. Arneault said in an interview. "In 1945 the survival was six to eight months.
