Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta COLUMNIST'S NOTEBOOK Gas shortage? So what else is new? By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Re- marks that a doctor's secre- tary gets tired of hearing: "I thought bankers' hours were pretty good, but I guess doctor's hours have them beat, haven't "Do you mind if I tell you my symptoms before I get in to aee Dr. Medulla? Some- times I get so flustered I for- get to tell him half the things that are really wrong with me." "You mean this is only Wednesday? Here I've waiting two hours, and I'm not even supposed to be here until Thursday." "Judging from the latest magazines I've been reading in your reception room, 1957 must have been quite an in- teresting year." "No, I'd rather not tell you my name. I want to surprise the doctor." "Yes, Dr Medulla delivered oH six of my children, and the last one has turned out to have the highest IQ. Tell me, is that (he way most doctors deliver "After I've been sitting here half the day, you tell me this is Dr. Medulla's office. Fm supposed to see Dr. Ob- longata. Isn't he in this build- "Just between us. could you tell me whether that attrac- tive young man sitting across the room from my daughter and me is married or not? My daughter is kind of curious." "No, I don't care to tell you why I want to see the doctor. It's too personal. Just tell him that it has something to do with a stuck I got to see him real quick." "Listen, good-looking, if you're not tied down, how about letting me take you to dinner tonight and tell you about a couple of interesting symptoms I've developed since I came in here and saw "I know the doctor has a good reputation, but confiden- tially, would you mind telling me how he ranked in his graduating "No, teby, I'm not sick. I'm the salesman for a drug firm. If you'll slip me in to see the doc for five minutes I'll tell him about a new remedy we're putting out that will make all his patients feel like they can walk on wa- ter." "This Is Mrs. Grimsby call- Ing. No, I don't want to make an appointment. I just want you to ask the doctor whether he thinks I might feel better if I took two of the brown pills a day instead of three and four of the pink pills instead of two." "You know something, honey? I don't think Dr. Med- ulla is even in his office yet. Do yen mind if I use your phone and call the country club? I'll bet he's out on the golf course, and hasn't even completed his first nine yet."

PHONE 328-1101 Warnings of an energy crisis might suggest to nolstalgia buffs the years when the country faced a critical gas shortage because of the war effort. By 1942, most of the available gasoline was strictly rationed. Motorists (right) received alphabet stickers according to need and (bottom) ration card. And millions of bumper stickers (near bottom) were also distributed. Will it happen again? two-fisted judge Continued from Page 25 courage and great wisdom es- pecially when it would have been easier for him to have drifted with the tide." Through the several months of the trial Judge Sirica sat with growing outrage as he lis- tened to the seven defendants give their bland testimony. He was certain there was more than this being just "a third- rate as the White House contended. He gave the six besides Mfc- Cord stff sentences. Yet in an unusual move, Judge Sirica delayed sentencing of McCord, who admitted that be feared a severe sentence, possibly 20 years, if be did not co-operate fully. Some critics said that Ju9ge Sirica's action actually placed rim in the role of prosecutor. There was concern that the means in which the letter was obtained would not hold up in the appellate court. "You would have to be a nincompoop to play no role in Judge Sirica had said from the bench. INTERVIEW And more recently, In an exclusive interview in his chambers, the judge added, "I think when a judge sees that facts are not being developed, he has a duty to prosecutor and defendant to get the full picture, regardless of whom it helps or hurts. "I did only what I thought was right. By God. nobody can criticize you for that." Was he concerned about a possible reversal by an appel- late court? "If a Judge has one eye on what an appellate court might do then he should get off the he said. "I never Splendor in the glass Swirl a little chilled Chante into a stem glass. And watch those light, sparkling bubbles rise to the occasion. Andres Chante has a special sparkle all its own. And it could be yours. Try some rouge, blanc or rose Spar- kling Chante. Better yet, share some. ANDRES VWTNHB Of flHl WTOU 73-H2AL think about it. I've been revers- ed several times, and I've Been sustained many, many times." Because of his independent ways, the judge has been, as one writer put it, "rigorously above political considera- tions." Which meant that he couldn't be bought, but also that he would not necessarily be a prime candidate for pro- motion, either. LONG WAY John Sirica has come a long way to be placed in so grand a position as a national hero. "I've known he says of his childhood in Waier bury, Conn., and Jacksonville Fla. He is the son of Italian immigrant parents. His fathe was a barber, "and I'm very proud of the fact he was honest man Judge Sirica re- calls that he and his family slept in the back of a grocer store in which his mother work ed. "She kept us clean and she got us to he says. Through school, he greased automobiles and waited on tables. He worked as an ath letic director for the KnigKts of Columbus in Washington to pay his way through law school. "I guess I always wanted to be a trial lawyer but at one time I also consid ered being a boxer. I weighed ISO pounds. But I found that boxing was too rough a way to make a dollar." LAW SCHOOL He spent two years in law school and was admitted to the jar- (That was all the school- ing required for lawyers in the early 1920s, which may account 'or some saying bis reputation for honesty is greater thaa his reputation for brilliance.) He began legal work in pri- vate practice. He met William E. Leahy, a little known Washington lawyer who me judge calls "my idol." Leahy's large portrait bangs in Judge Sirica's chambers. "I learned from him how to get the jury nodding in your flavor, how to anticipate their questions to let them know you aren't out to hoodwink them and the im- portance of being a principled roan of the said Sirca Judge Sirica was appointed to the bench by President Eis- enhower, in 1957. He had cam- paigned for the Republican tic- ket since Landon in 1936. In -fact, he had made speeches in 1952 and 1956 in support of Richard Nixon, the Republican vice-presidential candidate. NOT PARTISAN But partisanship never en- tered his courtroom, if he could help it. Now, he has caused havoc for the Republicans. An- other time he nearly threw the former secretary of the Inter- ior, Stewart Udall, a Demo- cratic appointee, into Jail for contempt- Yet Judge Sirica not only admires toughness, but gentle- ness, too. One of his best friends today is Jack Dempsey, the former heavyweight boxing champion, whom he met while on bond selling tours during World War n. Judge Sirica abo admires Vice President Spiro Agnew. "He has not forgotten his heritage, and where he oanie said the judge. "He once happened to join tne at a naturalization proceedings I handled. I liked what he said. It was similar to what I usual- y tell people on this occasion. Naturalization proceed ings are one of the things I enjoy most about being a judge. PROUD I tell folks that now you are as much an American as the President of the United States. It is something to be proud of, to be a citizen of this treat country. Now, when peo- >le ask what you are, don't ay, or say I am an American.' inunaoy, jwm tm, IV71 Tm LITHMIDOI HI MONTH END CLEARANCE PICTURES 2 II x Assorted.
