Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD Fritltiy, Juno 17, "70 Long ong lair? Thai Is The Question SASKATOON fCP) What str.rted as a beer room bustup at the stately Bessbarai.di Hotel appears to have devel- oped into a town meeting, or the great debate on proposed standards of dress and groom- ing. The whole thing started Monday when hotel manager George JlcCahc, a stylishly- dressed 32-year-old with lon- gish hair, tried to invoke rules governing dress, hair length and deportment following complaints from hotel pa- trons. Patrons complained about long-haired, sbppily-dressed young people in the hotel beer parlor and lobby. The Monday confrontation was relatively quiet with only a litUe pushing and shoving, hut when the rules were rein- vckcd Tuesday there was con- siderable scuffling, r a n c o r and broken iurnilure. Now the beer parlor door hears a sign saying it is closed for repairs. Hut, instead of remaining a dispute between the original antagonists, it has developed into a civic issue and a public meeting is scheduled Sunday on the city hall steps to dis- cuss the situation.

The federation also dealt with resolutions concerning control of firearms, education and the role of municipal government under a new constitution, at its concluding sessions Thursday.

The formal wedding claims attractions of its own. It does not attempt to achieve magnificence. It aspires to a rich simplicity and unostentatious beauty. To achieve such a balance of perfection it must be well planned. As has been mentioned previously, ell three lypes of formal weddings have many similar fea- tures. One of the principal differences is in tho bride's costume. She has a wide choice. She may wear a gown with a formal train or a short sweep. It may be (rainless or have contemporary ankle-length. Or, if she wishes, the gown may bd ballerina style. Her veil may be long or finger- tip length.

A resolution requesting Ot- tawa to initiate discussions with the provinces to co-ordinate as- sessment of school credits so students can receive full credit for completed courses should they move to another province was adopted. The original resolution had urged standardization of school currieulums. DEBATE HEATED A resolution seeking firm fed- eral control of firearms was de- feated after heated debate. One delegate said despite strict controls in the United States, criminals still found ac- cess to firearms while sports- men suffered. Tho mayors suggested the question of the status of munici- pal governments as another ju- risdiction with powers and re- sponsibilities appropriate t o their role in Canadian public lite should be considered in re- drafting the Canadian constitu- tion.

Powell ecomes Centre Election Storm LONDON (Reuters') Con- servative rebel Enoch Powell became the centre of a new el- ection storm today after a speech denounced by Labor party leaders as a smear on the loyalty of the British civil serv- ice. In his Midlands district Wolvcrhampton, Powell re- turned to his theme that the growth of non-white immigra- tion into Britain threatened civil strife and that the country had been misled on immigration fig- ures. But he struck a new note when he said: "One begins to Critical Turn LONDON (CP) Attempts to end a national newspapers strike in Britain took a critical turn today with reports that three cf the five unions partici- pating in the wage bargaining walked out of the talks. An official of the Trades Union Congress, site of the negotiations, said that after the walkout an adjournment of tne meeting was called until later in the afternoon. Printers and engravers, who initiated the strike Tuesday night calling for a 25-per-cent wage increase, were accompa- nied at the bargaining by repre- sentatives of the engineers, electricians and compositors. Publishers insisted that any settlement with the printers and engravers must also be ac- cepted by the other unions and that there would be no attempts by one union trying to use a set- tlemen with another union as a platform for getting a bigger in- crease. Publishers Initially offered a five-per-eent wage increase and then increased this offer to 7Vi per cent. It was rejected by the unions in marathon talks Tues- day. MAY INVOLVE OTHERS The reported walkout in- creased the possibility that the strike may continue for some time and that the seven Sunday national papers may be crippled along with the current seven dailies and two London evening papers. Total circulation of the dailies and Sundays amount to about Prime Minister Wilson con- ferred with leaders of both sides before today's talks got under way and said he would hold fur- ther talks with them Saturday if no settlement is reached before then.

Phosphate Peceutage it SASKATOON (CP) The Consumers1' Association of Can- ada voted Thursday to seek fed- eral legislation requiring labels on laundry detergent to show the percentage of phosphate content. About 150 delegates to the as- sociation's annual meeting also voted to request that federal au- thorities release all available in- formation on the pollution ef- fects of poly-chlormated-bithen- als, a product released in plas- tics manufacturing. Delegates, in another resolu- tion, called1 for 'Ottawa to set standards and regulations for storing meat, poultry and their by-produets. The association, at closing sessions, also urged that all lev- els of government make ribbon markings compulsory for beef grades. The resolutions were among approved Thursday, final day of the meeting. CAC spokesman Enid Ilarling said some resolutions were orig- inally approved as long ago as 1963 and despite repeated urg- ing governments had not taken action. Delegates approved a request to provincial governments for formal inquiries into operations and regulations of credit report- ing agencies. A revision of the CAC was also approved by delegates', in- volving a combined promotion program with the United States-based Consumers' Union and bylaw changes allowing greater flexibility for the CAC. wonder if the foreign office was the only department of state into which enemies of this coun- try were a refer- ence to spy scandals of the 1950s. This provoked an immediate challenge by Home Secretary James Callaghan that Powell should either provide him with evidence or withdraw "his nasty, miserable speech." Callaghan said: -'There could only be one possible interpreta- tion of Mr. Powell's speech. He means there are traitors among those civil servants are concerned with immigration and the population statistics of this country." Callaghan, speaking in Lon- don, urged Edward Heath, Op- position Conservative party leader, to make his position on Powell clear. FREEDOM TO SPEAK So far Heath has said he W'ould net include Powell in a Conservative cabinet but has defended his freedom to express his views as a Conservative party candidate. Fofegin Secretary Michael Stewart also challenged Powell to produce evidence for his claims that the British have been misled on immigration sta- tistics. Powell says that the immigra- tion population in Britain is closer to than the figure given by the government. Labor campaigners have been hitting the Conservative party Tory leader Heath in what has become known as "Powellism." Observers believe Labor lead- e r s, constantly challenging Heath to denounce Powell as a dangerous racist, hope to plant the impression that Heath is not fully in control of his own party. Published reports suggest Powell has nothing to gain by a Conservative victory in the Thursday, June 18, elections and everything to gain by a de- feat. Easy Victory For Tories ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) The Progressive Conservative party easily retained St. John's East Thursday in a provincial byelection as William Marshall won the Tory stronghold with of the votes cast. John J. Murphy, a St. John's businessman billed as the offi- cial Liberal candidate by his party's district association but regarded as an independent Lib- eral, received 709 votes. David Furlong, a school- teacher representing the New Democratic Party, got 259. IN SORROW West German Foreign Minister Walter Scheel shows a face of sorrow at a press conference today in Bonn where he reported to newsmen on the state of the kidnapping of Ambassador Ehrenfried von Holleben in Rio de Janeiro Thursday night German Ambassador Tonsils RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) The Brazilian government said Thursday night it will do all if can to obtain the safe release of Ambassador Ehrenfried von Holleben .of West Germany, kid- napped by leftist terrorists who killed a Brazilian security guard and wounded two others. The military government of President Emilio Garrastazu Medici is expected to meet the kidnappers' demand that politi- cal prisoners be exchanged for the 61-year-old diplomat. But pamphlets left by the kidnap- pers did not say what prisoners they want or even how many. Von Holleben was snatched by about eight young persons Thursday evening as he was re- turning 'home in his chauffeur- driven Car. As the car rounded a sharp turn two blocks from the am- bassador's residence, his abduc- tors shot cut a street light, rammed the front of his car with a jeep and machine-gunned a station wagon carrying secu- rity men behind the car, wit- nesses said. Two young armed men then forced their way into von Holle- ben's car, gunning to death a Brazilian security agent in the front seat as he reached for his pistol.
