Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 _ THE IETH3RIDGE HHRALD Tuosilay, Juno 30, 1970 MONTREAL Robert Bourassa warned 50 business and industrial leaders Monday that Quebec separatism could be the penalty for failure to make French the province's working language. Mr. Bourassa told directors of the province's 25 largest em- ployers that the language situ- ation in Quebec is "urgent." Ronuing Claims Changes Needed In System EDMONTON (CP) Chester Ronning, former Canadian dip- lomat in the Far East, said her'e "revolutionary changes" are needed in the world's present system of politics, economics and international relations. He told a conference of Al- berta socialists the gap be- tween the have and have-not countries is the greatest threat to world peace and will not be bridged under a capitalist sys- tem. "There's room on earth for only one human said Mr. Ronning, now a resi- dent of Camrose, Alta. "During the next few years, must give proof that the French-speaking people of Quebec are able, without break- ing the links which unite them witli Canada, to work, to live and to succeed in then- own lan- guage. "If we were to fail in this basic task, heavy will be the consequences for our future." Mr. Bcurassa made it clear that these consequences include greater support for the separa- tist cause among French-speak- ing Quebecers. In a news conference follow- ing his hour-long meeting with the directors, he referred to the results of the April 29 provincial general election as evidence of the urgency of the need to make French the province's working language. In the election, which brought Mr. B o u r a s s a 's Liberals to power, the separatist Parti Que- becois won seven seats and re- ceived 23 per cent of the total vote.

Nazarene Church Official Raps Press, TV Media WINNIPEG (CP) An off! cial of the international Churd of the Nazarene said Monday night that "four giants have al most taken over guidance of our lives." Delivering tho 50th anniver sary commencement address a the Canadian Nazarene College Rev. Dr. Edward Lawlor sai these giants were "publishing broadcasting, TV movies one advertising." The general superintendent a Nazarene headquarters in Kan sas City said his concern is tha the guidance of young peopl will "fall from the hands o those motivated by love, int the hands of those motivated bj gold." Dr. Lawlor told the 19 gradu ates they should try to find "the same spiritual dynamism tha mada Martin Luther an earth- quake force in Europe." One of the graduates was Philip Airhart, son of Rev. Ar nold Airhart, president of the college, and Mrs. Airhart. He was the first to graduate in a double degree program by re- ceiving a BA degree from the Jniversity of Manitoba and bachelor of sacred literature de- pree from Canadian Nazareue College. Canadian Nazarene College lupported by 136 churches o he Nazarene denomination in Canada, was started in Calgary iO years ago. It moved to Hec Deer, Alta., in 1927 and relo- cated at Winnipeg in 1960.

By HOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) It': time for some stnignt talk about that much maligned insti- tution. The star system. The Preminger. The word has teen passed iiound that, the star system is dead in films, that actors who were getting a million dollars a picture last year are now lining up for unemployment insurance. Producer-director Preminger is reputed to be a tiger who chomps on actors for hors d'oeuvres. Hence you might ex- Dect him to kick the star system jito the. freshly dug grave. He didn't. Not exactly. "Would I pay an actor a mil- lion dollars a lie mused in his palatial Para- mount office. "Of course not. But then, I don't think there arc any actors asking for a million year. "Myself, I don't believe in stars. Perhaps the star system meant something in the years when certain personalities had their own followings. Like Clark Gable. It is said that the only pictures of his that didn't make money were the ones he did with Myrna Ley about Ireland (Parnell) and the last one, with Marilyn Monroe (The "But now there is no star that can guarantee a picture's suc- cess. Yet the star system has been producers who felt they needed stars for protection. "If the picture's a flop, the producer can excuse his own stupidity by saying, 'Look I had Elizabeth Taylor in it; what else could I Preminger has hired Paul Newman, Frank Sinatra, Kim Novak and dozens of other stars for Ms films, and he says he would do so again. "After all, stars become stars because they have certain quali- ties. Most of them are good ac- tors, or at least learn to give a good performance. A' star name in the right part can add value to a film." For his latest film, Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon, Preminger went the unknown route. Well, almost. He cast Liza Minnelli in the female lead at a time when she was a star in night clubs and television only. He picked Ken Howard from "1776" and James Coco from off-Broadway. Stage director Robert Moore wanted to observe on the set; Premin- ger cast Mm as one of the leads instead. The combination appears to have worked. Junie Moon has received the best reviews of any Preminger film in recent years. His description of it: story of members of three minority young, the poor and the crippled their demand for the right to life." Preminger conceded that the film industry is suffering a ma- laise. But he doesn't agree with the panic talk. "The movies have always been lucky; some new develop- ment comes along to save them. Perhaps the videotape casetto will make a whole new market for films." Former Gaiillist Stronghold Taken Over By Oppostion NANCY, France (Reuters) Tliis long-time Guallist strong- hold today is the headquarters of France's fastest-rising oppo- sition figure, Jean-Jacques Ser- van-fichreiber. In a special election run off that turned into an embarrass- ing rebuke for the governing Gaullist pally, the Nancy area gave the dynamic 46-year-old former journalist 55 per cent of its votes. Roger Souchal, who held the seat for the Gaullists for 12 years, trailed far behind with just under 25 per cent. Com- munist Michel Antoine drew the remaining 20 per cent. Ministers and top Gaullists came to Nancy to campaign for Souchal, but failed to blunt the effect of Servan-Schreiber's whirlwind campaign and his pledges to bring a new spirit into French politics and revital- ize Nancy's economy. Servan-Schreiber, who made international headlines when he brought detained left-wing com- poser Mikis Theodorakis out o( Greece in April, plunged into politics fulltime only last fall. Sunday night with typical boldness, he moved even before all the votes were counted to underline the national scope of his aims, founded on the hope of a new centre-left opposition. He told a crowd that those who saw France's future as a choice between Gaullism and communism were advocating "a formula for civil war." "Gaullism without de Gaullo one can say what that means. The man is gone, and with him the doctrine." He also lashed out at commu- nism as a bankrupt doctrine. Insure Now Against Your standing grain h Insured against fire loss at no extra charge.
