Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta if goes This stock which will serve the copper smelter and zinc refinery In Flin Flon In about two years is rising at a rate of one foot per hour on a 24-hour basis, five days a week, using the continuous slip-forming technique. The reinforced concrete steel-lined stack being built for Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company has passed the 75-foot mark in a construction which will rise to 825 feet, roughly 200 feet higher than the Calgary (Husky) Tower. Transcedental meditation suggested for politicians By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureait OTTAWA Strange smelling josh sticks, flowing robes and trance-like meditation techt niques from the mystic East may soon be the order of the day for the 109 Liberal MPs in Ottawa if a top party official gets his way. "For Gibert Herard, director of the national Liberal caucus re- search bureau, has mailed out letters to all Liberal MPs urg- ing them to attend a session of "transcedental meditation" as expounded by guru Maharishi Mahesh man the Beatles went tripping with a few years ago. The letter, on official House of Commons Liberal caucus note paper and signed by Mr. Herard, suggests that English- speaking Liberal MPs attend an introductory session on Thurs- day while French-speaking members get to know some- thing about the art today. Mr. Herard, who holds quite an important position in the Liberal party, points out that the science of transcendental meditation "gaining unbeliev- able support" around the world and that although some persons consider it to be revolutionary it is, in fact, very simple. Cautions Mr. Herard: "It is not a system of mental gymnas- tics. It is a technique based on a theory that, just as on the fi- ner levels of matter, there is more energy and power avail- able." Noting that transcendental meditation is known by its more formal name of the "science of creative Mr. He- rard says in his letter that "an interesting program" was out- lined to the caucus executive and that "we believe that mem- bers will be especially inter- ested in S.C.I, since it is aimed at those that must follow an ar- duous a reference to the long days Ca- nadian MPs put it at the House. Progressive Conservative House leader Ged Baldwin, MP for Peace River, Alta., made a cutting remark about the letter in the House of Commons Mon- day. Outside the Commons, holding photostats of the letter in Eng- lish and French, Mr. Badlwin, a Queen's Counsel lawyer, didn't seem to be too enthusiastic about getting his party's MPs involved in the mystic activity. Nevertheless though, Mayor "Pierre fienoit oi al- ready proclaimed the week of June 17th to June 24th as "World Plan Week" in the city and on the mayor's letterhead notepaper outlines the alleged benefits one can obtain from practicing transcendental medi- tation or, if you prefer, the sci- ence of creative intelligence! The Lethbridge Herald Third Section Lethbridge HHerald, Thursday, June 14, 1973 Pages 29-38 The visit of West Germany's Willy Brandt Israelis undergo traumatic experience A Commentary By TERENECE SMITH New York Times Service JERUSALEM The four- day state visit of West Ger- many's Chancellor, Willy Brandt this week, appears to have been an emotional and political watershed in Israeli- German relations. Emotionally, the mere pres- ence of the West Geman lea- der for the first time was a traumatic experience for many Israelis. The sound of the Ger- man language, the strains of the national anthem and the sight of the Iron Cross still; stir the deepest feelings among. Israelis who survived the Nazi concentration camps. It was out of consideration for their feelings, in fact, that the Israeli radio decided to de- lete from live coverage of the arrival and departure ceremon- ies .the sound of the Israeli Army Band playing "Deutsch- land Uber Alles." "We were afraid it would upset too many a station official ex- plained. Despite the depth of the sentiment, the 59-year-old chan- cellor was received by a great majority Israelis as a friend. This was partly a reflection of his stanchly anti-Nazi back- ground, but there was no avoid- ing the fact that he was here as the symbol of the West Ger- man people. There were a few minor demonstrations, limited to the youth movement of the right- wing opposition. "The fact that a German leader can come here and be received as warmly as he was, whatever the reason, is re- an Israeli profes- sor observed. "It shows that older Israelis are coming to grips with their past and rec- ognizing the realities of the present." Politically, the visit appears to have marfced the end, or at least the revamping, of the so- called special relationship that has prevailed between the two countries for two decades. With a series of elliptical but un- mistakable declarations dur- ing his visit, Brandt put the relationship on a more prag- matic footing. Ever since 1952, when agree- ments providing German prep- parations to the Jewish victims of Nazism were negotiated, successive governments in Bonn have acknowledged a moral ob- ligation to Israel as the re- presentative of the Jewish peo- ple. That obligation has been translated into" individual and collective reparations totalling nearly billion, extensive and continuing economic assistance and consistent poh'tical support. Before 1965 West Germany also provided a discreet funnel for the sypply of American wea- pons. In public and private com- ment here, Brandt frequently spoke of the horrors of the Nazi period. He conceded the impor- tance of remembering the past, but at the same time he re- peatedly stressed that he was leading a new Germany, more than half of whose population has been bora since the holo- caust and to whom Nazism is an abstract concept. To the dismay of some Is- raeli officials, the chancellor never specifically reaffirmed the special relationship: He. spoke, rather, of "normal rela- tions with a special charact- er" a formulation originated by his foreign minister, Walter Scbeel, a vigorous proponent of normalizing relations. To many Israeli officials and observers the. semantic distinc- tion is significant. They feel that Brandt, was skillfully ad- vising Israel that relations-must be based on common interests rather than past obligations. They believe he was saying that as long as interests con- verge, Israel can continue to count on West Germany's wholehearted support and back- ing. But when those interests are in conflict, he seemed to be saying, West Germany will feel free to act in its own inter- est, the past notwithstanding. In the short term Israeli of- ficials do not expect the modi- fication of attitude to affect Is- raeli's position, for they are confident that co-operation will continue unabated. Their "con- cern is with the future. They are worried, for instance about Brandt's expressed de- termination to work toward a Man charged rustling SALMO, B.C. (CP) The crown entered a stay of pro- ceedings on charges against Paul Clinton Kyle, 18, of Fruit- vale, charged in connection with the rustling of 23 head of cattle from the C. S. M. Live- stock Ltd. ranch near here. Kyle had been charged with theft of -cattle, unlawfully butchering livestock and un- lawfully having beef in his pos- session. He and two others were charged after ranch hands found the remains of two butchered cows following a roundup last December. Earlier, stays of proceedings were entered against Kenneth Darrell Fitzpatrick, 21, and Mark Anthony Kyle, 17, both of Fruitvale. The two men disap- peared and were presumed drowned in a canoeing acci- dent in April. Mark Kyle's body .was recovered recently from the Pend Oreille River near the Canada-U.S. border. joint stand in the European eco- nomic community on major in- ternational issues such as the Middle East. He stressed this point during his visit, explain- ing that the members would have to bridge their differ- ences on issues, of that sort if a true Western European poli- tical union is to be achieved. The Israelis have .vigorously discouraged such activity by outside powers on the 1 sound that it provides the Arab states with alternatives to direct ne- gotiations with Israel. Mr. Brandt may well concede the logic of that argument, but he made it clear during his visit that he would not let it stand in the way of a step that would Contribute to the European poli- tical unity he is seeking. It is over such issues that West Germany and Israel may argue in the future. If so, as an Israeli official observed with a smile, "we may look back to the period before this visit as the good old days." "Sure, saving is a problem.
