Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THI lltHMIDOI HIRAID - Thunday, March 4, 1971 Boyle's Column NEW YORK (AP) - Here are some invitations which, if accepted, lead to nothing but woe: "Dad, how about showing our team how you used to play tackle when boys were really men?" "Do you want to put your money where your moutfa is?" "Wouldn't it be simpler if you pulled and I pushed?" "Oh, what if the elevator is packed? Isn't there always room for a couple more?" "How about you picking up this tab, and I'll get even with you later?" "Don't you like to be surprised?" "I know it's not the kind of thing you usually like, but if I promise you'll be back home by midnight, then will you come?" "Why waste $3 on a barber, Henry? Let me cut it for you." "You're poking your nose into someone else's business, buddy. How would you like a fat lip?" "I know a short cut. Shall we take it?" "I'd like to recite some poetry to you Myrtle, but I do it better in the dark. Can I turn off the lights?" "It has only been in the refrigerator a week or so. Here, taste it and tell me if you think it's still ok." OFFER HAND "He won't bite you. Just hold out your hand to him so he'll know you're his friend." "Oops, I just lost one of my contact lenses. I think it rolled off the sidewalk into the street. Please try to find it." "Yes, I make it myself. I call it Heaven's Nectar. I take some raw alcohol, bruise a few juniper berries, put in half glass of hot sauce, the juice of a dozen four-leaf clovers, and-but never mind the ingredients. Just wrap a cupful around your tonsils and let it speak for itself." ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 "Just for laughs, when I meet your friends why don't you introduce me as your wife?" "We've already climbed more than halfway up the mountain. What if it is getting a little icy? Are you ready to push on?" "How about you holding it while I hammer it in?" "You are always wondering aloud what housewives do at home all day. Well, Mr. Smarty, would you like to sit down right now and listen to how I spent my day?" "Shall we rob a bank and pretend we didn't?" "I'm tiaed of being a hippie, Maude. Can I move into your pad if I promise I'll find a steady job within a week?" Punch board racket smashed MONTREAL (CP) - A $2 million racket involving the distribution of illegal punch boards was smashed here in a series of raids. Nearly 19,000 of the boards were seized, including 15,000 in a basement of a north - end home. One man was taken into custody. A police spokesman said two companies held the monopoly for distribution of the boards across Canada. However, both companies had the same headquarters and were directed by the same individual. Chances to play on the punch board are bought for a certain amount of money. The player then punches a hole in the board and sometimes wins prizes up to $100. The player pays a set price for each chance at the board. He punches a hole, or scrapes off a cardboard top surface and receives the ftash prize marked underneath. The illegal boards generally guarantee a 50 - per - cent profit for the holder. On a $300 board, there would be about $150-$200 in prizes. The odds favor the holder. 1 Heath stirs up political dust NO PLACE TO GO BUT UP - Although he looks happy, this young man has a problem. Guy Peiffer, 23, escaped from Luxembourg's central prison but made the tactical error of climbing to the prison rooftop, where he found a seat on a chimney and made the "V" sign. The police didn't pursue him. They waited for the evening cold to make things uncomfortable for Peiffer. By nightfall he descended and was back in the warm, but confining, prison. Manager named OTTAWA (CP) - Serge N. Emelyanov has been named manager of the Paris office of the Canadian government travel bureau, the government announced Wednesday. Mr. Emelyanov has been sales department co-ordinator in Canada for SABENA Belgian World Airlines for the last eight years. Poole company wins contract OTTAWA (CP) - Poole Construction Ltd. of Edmonton has been awarded a $276,867 contract for construction of a school and staff housing at Meander River, Alta., the public works department announced today. LONDON (CP) - Ted Heath sees himself as the bold, honest crusader, risking popularity as he drags Britain from apathy and suffocation to her true place in the halls of power. This sense of destiny, mildly similar to that of the late President Charles de Gaulle of France, has dared the Tory prime minister to engage in full battle with Britain's powerful unions and to align himself more firmly on the political right, both at home and abroad. Displaying tenacity which some critics define as obstinacy and stubbomess, the prime minister since his election last June has stirred more political dust than any post-war leader before him. Amid the road of inflation, Heath wages a parliamentary struggle to reform the unions while strike follows strike in crippling succession as workers demand huge vage increases. The commotion at home raised by this two-front struggle, threatening industrial paralysis, is compounded by Heath's brusque handling of the black Commonwealth. FRANKNESS DOUBTED "In dealing with the Common wealth, straightforwardness is everything," Heath once said. But there are questions among the membership whether the prime minister is entirely straight in pursuing his intention ti resume limited arms shipments to South Africa. So far, he has agreed to ship only seven Wasp helicopters to the Vorster government, a relatively minor item which might not have stirred Commonwealth eruptions at Singapore had Heath made clear no further arms will be shipped. But so keen is his sensitivity over British sovereignty that he has given the Commonwealth no clue on his final intention, leading to increased specualation and anger among the blacks that he pays only lip-service to condemnation of apartheid. This bristling resentment is intensified by Heath's new im-migration legislation which mainly will restrict immigration of non-white Commonwealth ct- j FREE GAS FREE PLATES NO DOWN PAYMENT WITH EACH CAR PURCHASE WE WILL SUPPLY YOU WITH ALL THE GAS YOU CAN USE FOR A WHOLE MONTH AND YOUR 1971 LICENSE PLATES PRE-OWNED 1968 DATSUN Pickup ................... $ 995 1967 DATSUN Sedan ................... $1195 1966 VOLKS Deluxe .................... $ 795 1967 RENAULT Automatic ............... $ 995 1955 VOLKS 4 speed $ 285 1965 OLDSMOBILE 36,000 miles .......... $ 995 1963 CONSUL ......................... $ 350 *r Hi M " v ^ h t- if cirri am/ M% * f�h!W fAMPERS aiv homco vnf mm mi TRAiltfS WO H WAY lzens. Heath's aides say opinion poll unpopularity is natural. The prime minister has tackled issues which no other leader in peacetime has gripped so fiercely in so short a time in off- Britain's entry to the European Common Market adds to British fears of still higher prices and costs. The Labor-supporting Dailv Mirror earlier summed up 1971 as "hell for Heath and hell for Britain, too, unless he throws some of his pet ideas out of the porthole." Heath does not have to hold a general election until June, 1975. With an obedient and pliable cabinet and a 30-seat majority in the 630-seat Commons, he can easily risk a paralytic 1971 if this punishment promises union discipline and strength for (he future. Oddities in the news ATHERTON, England (Reu-ter) - What happens when your neighbors can't pro-no u n c e your name, your daughter is left behind in examinations and writing it interferes with work? A family named Thistletfa-waites in this Northwest England town legally changed then- names to Baxter yesterday when they decided it was too much of a mouthful. At school, nine-year-old Kathryn Thistlethwaite was still writing her surname on the exam paper when the rest of the class were answering questions. At home, Jean Thistlethwaite could find no one in the neighborhood who pronounced it properly. At work, Harry Thistlethwaite found it held up productivity when it came to filling in forms. The new Harry Baxter saidc "Thistlethwaite is too long and unpronounceable and had to go. I had to consider the kids. They didn't like the name and I felt they'd be happier with something shorter and snappier." TED HEATH . . . Bofd crusader ice. But even on the Tory side, there are suggestions that Heath's firm grip may bear the edge of arrogance and his consistency may cover for blind adherence to dogma. In a biography on Heath. George Hutchinson is impressed by this thread of consistency, of great drive; "of stubborn determination, even inflexibility." Heath has an indestructible belief in himself. The test for the 54-year-old bachelor is whether this belief can lead to achievement. So far the country is in trouble. Many companies have reduced investment plans, fearing more labor turmoil and economic recession. Prices are still rising and the flood of wage demands continues. Moreover, the prospect of CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS Barbara Vrent TORONTO, March 4th - Food Shoppers .... what have Dominion's Deep Discount Prices, done for us? To find out, I studied 4 "outside" surveys conducted since Dominion started the price war. The Ontario Food Council survey stated that Dominion's prices were the lowest of all.
