Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Uiieinployincnt Rise lias Effect On Retail Sales EDMONTON (OP) A sliglil rise in unemployment had a de- pressing effect this year1 on sales in Alberta, Jack Robin- son, general manager of the Al- berta Retail Merchanls Associ- ation, said here. Sales, corresponding willi a population increase, were up two per cent, he said. "People are holding back, es- pecially on luxury items and implements." General items such as food and clothing were selling well. Mr. Robinson said two repre- sentatives of the association in the Peace River area re p o r t more optimism among business- men than there was last fall. Because Finance Minister Ed- gar Benson called off the pro- jected summer credit controls, he said, an expected showdown among the independent busi- nesses would not occuij. 'Campus Bums5 Commission Doesn't Need R hodes -Agnew DETROIT (AP) Vicc-Presi- dent Spiro T. Agnew criticized a young member of President Nixon's commission on campus unrest in the United Stales here and said if remarks at- tributed to Joseph Rhodes Jr. are accurate he should resign. Rhodes, 22, a junior fellow at Harvard University was ap- pointed hy Nixon Saturday to serve on the commission headed by former Republican Gov. Wil- liam W. Scranton of Pennsyl- vania. Ill an interview published Monday, the New York Times quoted Rhodes as saying in ref- erence to suggestions that the Nixon administration has pro- voked campus violence: "The kids have got to feel someone has the power to really investi- gate the grave charges being brought against the govern- ment." Commenting on Urn interview at a news conference today, Agnew said: "Rhodes lost no time in let- ting the public know Imw he in- tends to utilize his new post to lilt him from obscurity of an tin- publicized position to national notoriety." RASED ON REPORT Agnew emphasized his re- marks about Rhodes should not be interpreted as an implied criticism of the president. He also emphasized that his criti- cism of Rhodes is based on what he read in the newspaper. "Rhodes showed a transpar- ent bias that will make him counter-productive to the work of the the vice- president said. 'Unless The Times reporter is in error, Mr. Rhodes should re- sign." Rhodes was quoted in The IglOUS Averts Crisis To all the business firms, farmers, homemakers arid individ- uals who supplied full or part time summer employment for oivever There are still registered with Canada Manpower, for full or part time summer work, a total to date of MALE STUDENTS AND FEMALE STUDENTS TURN A STUDENT'S IDLE HOURS INTO WORKING HOURS! i A STUDENT TODAY!

"I'll do talk to the I can slop people from being Rhodes was quoted by The Times as saying. WILL VENT PROTEST "As long as these guys (While House officials) keep talking to me, I ought to be shot if I don't use the opportunity. I've got an avenue to vent my protest. But I feel these kids are right and we ought to do everything needed to protect them and the people who have to protect t them." j At another point in the inter- j new, Rhodes is quoted: j j "One of the things I want to j try to figure out is who gave what orders to send police on campus and were they thinking about 'campus bums' when they pulled the trigger. "If the president's and vice- president's statements are kill- ing people. I want to know that." Nixon had referred to some campus dissenters as "campus bums." Agnew was. in Detroit to j speak at a Republican party j fund-raising dinner Monday night. New Policy Oil Servicemen Wlio Die Abroad OTTAWA of Ca- nadian armed forces personnel who die abroad will be returned to Canada henceforih at public expense if requested by next of kin, Defence Minister Leo Cad- ieux announced here. "This change in government policy should help ease in most cases the grief associated with death and burial in a far coun- he said. The new policy applying to deaths on service outside Can- ada or the U.S. stark immedi- ately but does not. cover pre- vious deaths abroad. It also cov- ers dependents accompanying personnel on foreign duty. In some cases, the announce- ment said, regulations of the country where death occurs re- quire immediate burial, which would probably rule out return of bodies to Canada. JERUSALEM (AP) The Is- raeli Supreme Court has drop- ped a convcrsion-to-Judaism case which had threatened to cause a government coalition crisis. Tlie trouble was averted when Helen Seidman, an American- born convert to Reform Juda- ism, agreed to a second conver- sion Monday according to Or- thodox Jewish law. Earlier, it was reported she was born in Canada. Seek Inquiry Oil Athabasca River Oil Spill EDMONTON (CP) About 600 Alberta citizens have signed a request for a public inquiry into the oil spill on the Atha- basca River. The names were collected by the Organization STOP, Save Tomorrow Oppose Pollution. At a news conference today, Mel Hurtig, a publisher and one of the supporters of the public inquiry, said it is essential a public inquiry be made not just a government inquiry. "I'm afraid a governm e n t- conducted inquiry might not ask the right he said. Mr. Hurtig called action by government and industry to start a clean up "an incredible scenerio of bungling and mis- management." Signers of the petition include the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union, represented by international spokesman Reg Basken; Roy Jamha, president of the Alberta Federation of La- bor; and Don Whiteside of the Alberta Human Rights Associa- tion, Mr. Hurtig said.

The woman submitted a letter to the Supreme Court here re- questing thai her appeal of an interior ministry decision not to grant her or her children recog- nition as Jews be withdrawn. The court was to have made a test case ruling on her petition j here. The interior ministry, run by the country's Orthodox National Religious party, refuses to rec- ognize Reform conversions to Judaism by Christians. The Religious party, which forms a dovish three-man wing in Premier Uolda Meirs coali- tion cabinet, warned it would quit the government if Ihe court decision favored Reform Jews. Mrs. Seidman, 37, is the for- mer Helen Shannon of Be- thesda. Md. As a Unitarian, siic came to Israel five years ago, converted to Reform Judaism and married an Israeli kibbutz engineer in 1967. In a highly-unusual move, the mother of three children went through an Orthodox conversion ceremony in throe hours. The entire procedure normally takes about one year from the time of application. Israeli sources said Mrs. Seid- man was persuaded to under- take the Orthodox conversion by persons associated with the Re- ligious party. HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.
