Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 22, 1974 Ex-Nixon aide sentenced Former White House aide Charles W. Colson leaves U.S. District Court in Washington Friday accompanied by his wife Patricia. Colson was sentenced to serve one to three years in prison for obstructing justice. Doctors sew boy's ihumb back on DURHAM. N.C. (AP) Thanks to his father's medi- cal training and his brother's diving skill, Paul Stewart has his right thumb back. The doctors who sewed the thumb back on say the 17- year-old youth will have full use of it when the bandages come off. Paul's thumb was restored in an operation finished 17 hours after he lost it in a wa- ter-skiing accident. Surgeons say a delay of six hours usu- ally makes it useless to try to restore a severed finger. The fact that the thumb rested in the cool lake waters helped. "The cold reduced the metabolic needs of the thumb sufficiently so that it could re- main alive until we could re- join the arteries and allow fresh blood to flow into it one surgeon said. When Paul's father, Dr. Al- bert Stewart, was telephoned about the June 1 accident that severed his son's thumb, he was able to tell another son and fellow skiers to keep hunting for the thumb. The father knew that restoration surgery was performed at Duke University Hospital. Paul's thumb was severed at the base when a coil in the ski tow rope looped around it. Quebec groups divided on legislation Language wrangling hot, heavy QUEBEC (CP) Variations on the themes of how to change Quebec's school system or how to correct perceived excesses or failings in the Liberal's official language bill played to diminishing audiences this week before the legislature committee studying the bill. The week also saw the bill's sponsor, Education Minister Francois Cloutier. agree to consider changes in some sec- tions of the bill regarded as unacceptable by witnesses, but, as he promised, he has remained unswerving in sticking to the principles of the legislation. Mr. Cloutier said the government did not cling to an article in the bill allowing subsidies to firms promoting the use of French in their clause that has been hotly cpn- tested by the provincial chamber of commerce, the Quebec Federation of Labor (QFL) and the Confederation of National Trade Unions The QFL called the subsidies humiliating for French workers while the Federation des Jeunes Chambres du Canada Francais suggested the bill should contain fines and penalties rather than subsidies open to bureaucratic and political abuse. But. as in the first week of hearings, demands for more steps to make French not only official but predominant in the province and arguments over language of education brought the most discussion. Almost without fail, French groups appearing demanded an end to freedom of choice in language of education, with variations on proposals for a single French school system with English schools or classes for English Canadians, described as "the real Anglophones." The CNTU, however, suggested a novel approach, with primary education in any French or oth- numbers warrant but with sufficient French instruction to prepare students for a solely-French secon- dary and post-secondary public system. English teachers' unions, school boards and ethnic groups continued their call for maintaining freedom of choice in education, persuasion rather than coercion to attract immi- grants to French schools and clearer definition of English rights in the vaguely-worded bill. Both the Parti Quebecois and Mr. Cloutier however, have been telling these groups that the bill maintains freedom of choice, on the condition the student has a sufficient knowledge of the language of instruction in the system chosen. And Justice Minister Jerome Choquette got into the act, in what many saw as a breach of cabinet solidarity, when he told one group he could not believe in the doctrine and dogma of free choice and that Quebec had been unique in the world in allowing parents to send their children to schools where the language was not that of the majority. Eyebrows were also raised when Immigration Minister Jean Bienvenue, in an interview with a reporter just before he left for Europe, said the bill had been brought in too quickly. It should have been delayed until firm action was taken to improve English instruction in French schools, he said, warning that more unilingualism would wall Quebecers into a linguistic ghetto that would foster separatism. English groups claiming freedom of choice as a right were again this week unable to stand up to the constitutional ex- pertise of Opposition Leader Jacques-Yvan Morin who tried in vain to get them to back up their claims with references to law. And Francois-Albert Angers, president of the Mouvement Quebec Francais, provided the committee with an eloquent constitutional summary, arguing that the Quebec Act of 1774 confirmed Quebec's status as the French state it was before the conquest. Nothing has ever changed that status. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES WELDERS, B.
