Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THB LETHBRIDGE HERAtD Tuesday, Juno 30, 1970 Rockefeller's Wife Files Divorce Suit NEW YORK (AP) The Nor- wegian girl who fell in love with voting, rich Steven Rockefeller while working as a maid in his father's home has filed suit for divorce in Mexico after 10 years of marriage. Anne Marie (Mia) Kasmussen Rockefeller, 32, filed papers in Juarez. Judge Leticla Barragan said she probably would grant the di- vorce and custody of the cou- ple's three children to the mother today because Rockefel- ler, 34, had told the court he would not contest the suit. Mia and Steven met under storybook the son of a wealthy, promising political figure, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, and she the daughter of a grocer and retired fish merchant. While Steevn attended Prince- ton University, the pert blonde was his date on several occa- sions. When she was not in the Rockefeller home or visiting the university campus, Mia could be found studying art or work- ing as a salesgirl in a Manhat- tan department store. Shortly after his graduation in 1958, Steven visited Norway where Mia had returned. From there, he informed his father he was to be married, and the wed- ding took place in 1959.

Herb's Western Wear Opens In City Everything But The Horse INTERIOR VIEW OF HERB'S WESTERN WEAR According to Herb Slioctor, manager of II e r b' s Western Wear, his newly slocked prem- ises can outfit a customer with everything but the horse. selection of clothing has been selected to offer better quality western wear for the entire Mr. Shector said. "We are carrying a complete line of Levis, Tony lama boots, tooled leather handbags and belts, and a line of western suits and jackets for the young mod university student." The new store has been In- corporated with Christie Grant Co., which, after a successful 50 years of service to southern Alberta, closed its doors last March. Completely redesigned, the interior of the store lends an authentic western touch with beamed ceilings, shingled walls and wrought iron accessories. "Tlie front part the store By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Dominion Day holiday Wednesday may be the last leld under that name. A private member's bill to come before the Commons would change the name of the loliday to Confederation Day, it it still would be held July _ even if that date comes in the middle of a week. The Commons justice com- mittee approved the bill April I. Proposed by James Brown, member for the On- tario riding of Brant, the bill originally called for the holiday o become Canada Day and be celebrated on the first Monday of July. But, amendments changed the name to Confederation Day and called for it to be cele- brated July 1. Wednesday will be a holiday for most Canadians. But ethers, such as plant workers for General Motors of Canada Ltd., will take Friday off instead to give themselves a long week- end. The Employment Standards Act provides that an employee must be paid 1 Vz times his regu- lar rate if he works July 1. Some employers might unwit- tingly find themselves required to pay such overtime, even if workers are given Friday off. To avoid this, employers must apply to their provincial department of labor for per- mission to hold the July 1 holi- day on a day other than Wed- nesday. The July 1 holiday in New- foundland is called Memorial Day, as residents remember the near destruction of the Newfoundland R e g i ment at Beaumont Hamel in northern France early in the First World War. Only 68 men of the 800- man regiment survived. At Montreal's Man and His World, 23 ethnic groups will dress in national costumes and perform dances. Later in thi evening at La, an all- Canadian program of entertain- ment will feature artists from several provinces. A fireworks display will conclude festivities. Ontario government celebra- tions will take place in front of the legislature, with Provincial Secretary Robert Welch giving the main speech. A number of events are planned in Manitoba, in con- junction with the province's centennial celebrations. Helium-filled ballons live feet in diameter will be set free in about 100 communities. They will be decorated by each town with centennial messages and will have tags attached for re- turn to the town of origin. The Manitoba cabinet will jmeet with Prime Minister Tru- deau. An international folk festival will be held at Red Deer, Alta., a n d an antique plane will ar- rive in Penticton, B.C., as part of celebrations commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first crossing of Canada by air. is basically a self sendee area, allowing the customer to browse and make his selection at lei- Mr. Shector said.

The Grand opening of Herb's Western Wear took place this morning with Mayor Andy An- derson cutting the ceremon I a I ribbon.

Curbs Too Late OTTAWA (CP) The federal government's wage-restraint ceiling policy has been intro- duced too late, "almost as if ot prove that guidelines couldn't Opposition Leader Rob- ert Stanfield said Monday. Mr. Satnfield told a news con- ference the six-per-cent guide on wage and salary increases has not been accepted by Cana- dians and has not given the ap- pearance of being fair. It was introduced, he said, as an "llth- or 13th-hour move that hasn't carried conviction." Although he has favored es- tablishment of national guides, Mr. Stanfield said, he feels the six-per-cent level is unrealistic. He would riot, however, suggest an alternative figure. Mr. Stanfield said guides, per- haps even lower than those now set, should have been intro- duced before the beginning of negotiations which have re- cently resulted hi wags settle- ments that have shattered the government's proposed ceiling. MUST BE HUMANE He said that in dealing with inflation "we have to be deter- mined and steady in our efforts but we have to be humane." Criticizing the level of unem- ployment in the country, he sug- gested it is weakening the deter- mination of Canadians to fight inflation. "There is no particular evi- he added, "that in- creased unemployment is lead- ing to an acceptance of smaller wage increases." Mr. Stanfield's comments were part of his acid-toned re- view of the Trudeau Liberal government's "accomplish- ments" after two years in off- ice. Style has become more Im- portant to the government than content, he said. "I think that when that hap- pens, we are in a world of illu- sion where policies are not made but simply talked about. Where things don't really hap- pen but they always seem on the verge.of doing so."
