Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Woclnostlciy, Juno 17, 1970 LAUNCHES SENATE BID Former vice-president Hubert H. Humph- rey takes some young friends for a speedboat ride at his lake home in Waverly, Minn. Humphrey, who has been a college teacher for the past year, has announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate but claims that, under no circumstances, will He seek the nomination for the Democratic Party's presidential candidate in the 1972 election. Toronto's Famed Chinatown Is Dying TORONTO (CP) Chinatown is djing. It's not what Chinatown is but what it is not that's killing it. It isn't economical. Grocery stores and second-floor restaur- ants may serve a vital need, but they can't survive on land worth ?100 a square foot and going up. Already Chinatown is just a fraction of its original size. It shrank by almost two-thirds in the late 1950s when the city ex- propriated land for a new city hall. Chinatown, Vying in the shadow of city hall, now is mostly owned by developers and the high cost of (lie land will mean the end of Chinatown's small shops, says Alderman Ying Hope. It is home to a few hundred of Toronto's Chinese and a second home to the rest. It is a "social-psychological well to which they can return to refresh said Tang Lee, a third-year architecture student. "Here they can send their children to Chinese schools, attend religious serv- ices in Chinese, buy Chinese groceries and eat Chinese food. Here also they can learn of the past and leach these things to their children." To new immigrants the pres- ence of Chinatown eases the shock of a trans-Pacific leap, said Mr. Lee. Graham Emslie. city develop- ment commissioner, said: "It's certainly well worth having. It adds to the interest and diver- sity of the city. I like it. I'm just not sure how it can sur- vive." The building of the city hall was really the beginning of the end for Chinatown. By 1963 it was almost a foregone conclu- sion to some of the city's offi- cials that Chinatown was on its way out. A report of the Toronto plan- ning board in that ye-ir said: "In the normal course of events it can be expected that China town will gradually be displaced by office buildings, and this would be quite in keeping with the city hall and squar'e. To preserve Chinatown would take a special effort, perhaps a vir tual prohibition of new office buildings, a very difficult unattractive prospect." City officials recognize tha Chinatown deserves to be pres erved, but the question of to do it remains unanswered. "With so much of the land al ready gone, and with the pres sure of rising land prices, the preservation of Chinatown going to be difficult and expen sive, and it may be impossible, said Mr. Lee, who recently com pleted a detailed project study of Chinatown. 322 5th Street South Open Thurs. and Fri.

Try To Understand Urges Police Chief CALGARY (CP) Adults should try to understand the points of view of young people and not just go through the mo- tions of listening, Fred E. Sloanc, Edmonton city police chief, said here. 'I think we have passed the time when kics should be seen but n 0 t Chief Sloane told a service club district con- ference. "They are exposed to the world's troubles through the mass media ami they are of an ige when they possess a great- er knowledge than we had at their age." Parents should involve them- ilves more in the lives of their children and take an interest. 'All a lot of young people want is someone to listen to what they're saying and pay at- tention. They are not so dumb to know if you are listening or just going through the motions. "Young people more than ever need something solid to hang onto, and you have to be that solid something. You have to be this rock by example. "And when young people pro- voke us test us I think they're just trying to find out how we tick. I think you have to understand this." Staff Inspector Art Roberts, commanding officer of the Cal- gary City Police detective divi- sion, said more emphasis is be- ing put on the social sciences in police training to make offi- cers more aware of the prob- lems facing people today. "We have to identify with youth." IICMP Inspector Irv Blchm said the communications gap in smaller centres, where most people know everyone else, is not as wide as in llic cities. Reports Diibcek Expelled NEW YORK (AP) News- week magazine says Alexander Dubcck has been expelled from the Czechoslovak Communist party and dismissed as Ms country's ambassador to Tur- key. An article in the magazine's current issue says enemies Dub- cek made during his ill-fated ex- periment in liberalization as Czechoslovakia's leader in 19C8 were responsible for his expul- sion. Newsweek says Czechoslova- kia's Communist party presid- ium decided to oust Dubcek at a stormy session last week. Dub- cek was defended by Gustav Husak, the man the Soviet Union chose to replace him, the magazine adds. Husak was heavily outvoted by hard-liners, thereby placing his own 'position in jeopardy, Newsweek says. We arc extremely fortunate in this respect and to maintain it there is emphasis
