Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI LITH1RID0I HIRAID - Friday, March S. 1971 Legislature Roundup Free enterprise urged in House EDMONTON (CP) - An op. Fositioo member told the legis-a t u r e Thursday Alberta's economy would be stimulated if government would abandon its crown corporations in favor of free enterprise. Lou Hyndman (PC-Edmonton West) said in a private member's motion government gradually has moved in on economic areas that could be handled just as effectively, if Ombudsman won't speak on report EDMONTON (CP) - Unless formally invited, Alberta Ombudsman George B. McClellan said Thursday he will not appear in the legislature to speak on a special report already tabled in the House. The former RCMP commissioner was asked to appear before MLAs last fall, but in a letter to speaker Art Dixon he said the report is sufficient. The report concerns the ombudsman's investigation of the complaint of a former Edmonton real estate salesman, R. J. PhiMpzyk, who felt he had been wrongfully dismissed from membership in the Edmonton Real Estate Board Co-operation Listing Bureau Ltd. Mr. McClellan agreed with the complaint but the cabinet rejected his findings and ordered an inquiry to review it. The inquiry, headed by former Chief Justice Colin Cameron McLaurin of the Alberta Supreme Court found no basis for the ombudsman's decision. Two killed in Ankara gunfight ANKARA (AP) - One student and a Turkish soldier were killed and more than a dozen troops and students were injured today in a gunfight when troops tried to enter a university dormitory to search for four kidnapped U.S. airmen and their captors. The troops surrounded the dormitory at the Middle East Technical University. The students threw dynamite sticks and fired on the soldiers from windows and the roof. A commando unit was rushed to the campus and opened up with rifles and automatic weapons on the students. Military helicopters buzzed the roof, scattering the youths. not more so, by private business. "The encroachment has not been a deliberate move," he said. "The government has tended to creep and ooze into areas without realizing it." GIVEN SUPPORT The motion received support on both sides of the legislature. Highways Minister Gordon Taylor, however, at id the Social Credit government is a staunch advocate of free enterprise but "can't do something simply in the name of free enterprise." "The interests of the people of Alberta nave to come first." Areas suggested that could benefit from private management were liquor sales, lands and forests, highways and transport, public works and the treasury. The motion was supported by Alf Hooke (SC - Rocky Mountain House, John Landeryou (PC - Lethbridge), David Russell (PC - Calgary - Victoria Park), Edward Benoit (SC - Okotoks - High River and Charles Drain SC - Pincher Creek-Crowsnest). Later, Municipal Affairs Minister Fred Colborne said Alberta is conducting comprehensive studies into property assessment and taxation, including possible reform in the way taxes are applied to im provements. He said more attention is being paid to the relationship between heavy taxes on improvements and the development of slum areas. During budget debate, Bob Dowling (PC - Edson) said the province's education ft namclng program should be rebuilt to give rural residents a better break. FISCAL INEQUALITY Because of fiscal inequality, he said, rural Albertans often are denied the opportunities taken for granted by their urban counter - parts. Grant structures to rural school boards were unfair. In his riding, it cost an average of $23 a square foot to build a school that would cost $13 a square foot in Edmonton. Both boards, however, received the same grant of about $16.50 a square foot. Neville Roper (SC-Ponoka) said the Alberta hospital at Ponoka should be rebuilt and renovated, to allay the fears of staff members at the mental-health treatment centre that they may lose their Jobs. Letghton Buckwell (SC - Macleod) chided the Conservatives for making blanket state* ments in the House. Mr. Buckwell said he sometimes wonders why the 65 men are in the legislature - we should make an honest approach to grapple with the people's problems." Cabinet to review policy on school religion credits EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta cabinet will review" its policy of not allowing religion to be used as a credit course, Education Minister Robert Clark said Thursday. The review followed a recommendation from the department's committee on secondary education, Mr. Clark said outside the legislature. He declined to say what the recommendation was.

"The committee has given the matter serious consideration and made a recommendation. "I am m no position to indicate that there is any thought of a chance in government policy towards giving credits," be said. About 75 students were involved in a protest at an Edmonton separate school Wednesday. The students opposed the school's compulsory religion program, and argued that religion should be given academic credit like otther courses.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3rd THURSDAY, MARCH 4th FRIDAY, MARCH 5th SATURDAY, MARCH 6th SUNDAY, MARCH 7th From 11 a.m. 'til 10 p.m. Daily EL RANCHO MOTOR HOTEL MAVERICK ROOM MAYOR MAGRATH DR. PHONE 1J7-5701 VANCOUVER (CP) - "Everything a woman could be." The description comes from a friend of Canada's newest first lady, 22 -year-old Margaret Sinclair Trudeau. "She is especially attuned to things and she has shown remarkable maturity since she met Trudeau." The daughter of James Sinclair of West Vancouver, a former Liberal cabinet minister, was married to Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau Thursday in a quiet, private ceremony in neighboring North Vancouver. The new Mrs. Trudeau wore a long white hooded gown for the ceremony in St. Stephen's Roman Catholic Church, attended by only immediate members of the two families. 'A sort of woven garment," was the way Doreen Robson, sister of the bride's mother, Doris Kathleen, described the gown. "I think she designed it. She's very clever that way." A beautiful and "magnificent" woman are words used by a family friend to describe the auburn - haired, five-foot-six bride. "She is the type of person who could take two pots and provide a gourmet meal for an impromptu party. S h e is a homemaker, everything a woman could be. Mrs. Trudeau, who next week assumes her role as mistress' of 24 Sussex Drive, the prime ministerial residence in Ottawa, is a political science and sociology graduate of Simon Fraser University. Her name has been linked with the prime minister's on a number of occasions since they first met on a holiday in Tahiti in 1968. Mr. Sinclair said his daughter and the 51-year-old prime minister had been engaged for about six months. Mrs. Robson, asked how long the couple had been engaged, replied: "Since last fall, perhaps." She said Margaret was an Anglican but had recently become a Roman Catholic. A family friend said Miss Sinclair had been the only serious girl in the prime minister's life for the past several months, "But Trudeau has always insisted any of his dates not publicize their association with him. Margaret did not let him down. "True, he dated others, including Barbra Streisand, but speculation that this was anything serious was just that- speculation." The marriage, which  took even the prime minister's cabinet colleagues by surprise, was kept from three of the bride's four sisters until Thursday afternoon to preserve secrecy, Mrs. Robson said. reception affair When Prime Minister Trudeau and his 22-year-old bride, Margaret Sinclair of West Vancouver, walked in with their 11 guests the catering staff was caught by surprise, just as had been everyone else at the unannounced Thursday wedding. "The reception was arranged a week ago by Miss Sinclair's mother, but we thought it was a wedding anniversary celebration for someone else," said catering manager Walter Bohni. Eighteen guests had been invited but five of those, from Montreal, were prevented from attending because of poor weather and a flight cancellation. Upon arrival at the country club, Mr. Trudeau telephoned his widowed mother in Montreal. The couple and reception guests drank champagne before the dinner, which included smoked salmon, turtle soup, roast filet of beef, with mushroom cups stuffed with sauce bearnaise, asparagus and artichoke hearts. Dessert was pears flambe and the three-tier wedding cake was decorated with freshly-cut spring flowers. "The couple looked very happy," Mr. Bohni said. "Mr. Trudeau looked very happy." Mr. Bohni said the prime minister wore a dark suit for the reception and the bride wore a "very nice, simple white dress."

(CP) - Construction workers here are cashing in their U.S. government bonds in protest against President Nixon's suspension of a law requiring the government to pay workers on federal construction projects the same wages that prevail in industry. One union converted $12,000 in bonds to cash. Cameraman booked early for pictures VANCOUVER (CP) - Pho-ographer Fred Schiffer had had secretive assignments before, so he didn't pay much attention to another "quiet family wedding" planned for Thursday. But he had been given several different stories before he finally learned the truth: that Prime Minister Trudeau was the groom and 22-year-old Margaret Sinclair of West Vancouver the bride. It was Feb. 15 when the Hon. James Sinclair, member of the privy council and former Liberal federal fisheries minister in the St. Laurent cabinet, approached the Vancouver photographer to take wedding pictures. "I was told it was for another daughter and another gentleman," Mr. Schiffer said. "Then just yesterday he told me it was Margaret and Mr. Trudeau." "He asked me not to let it leak out, that a Sinclair daughter was getting married, that it was strictly a family affair." "They said the groom was a gentleman from France, who would be there with no family." Instead, Mr. Trudeau arrived ait St. Stephen's Roman Catholic Church in North Vancouver with his brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Trudeau, and two plainclothes policemen; his bride-to-be with her immediate family. The double-ring ceremony, with full mass, was "very relaxed, very comfortable," Mr. Schiffer said. The ceremony was performed by Rev. John Swin-kels.

Ph. 328-8181 Reason for Sharp Africa visit hinted LONDON (CP) - The Guard-ian suggests today that the coming visit of External Affairs Minister Sharp to Africa is linked with hostile reaction among some Commonwealth countries over Britain's decision to supply South Africa with helicopters. The newspaper reports "laughter" in top British circles over Nigeria's withdrawal from Party leader barred VICTORIA (CP) - Dave Barrett, leader of the New Democratic Party, was named in the British Columbia legislature early today and expelled from the house for a week. The action was taken after the member refused to take his seat during debate on the spending estimates of the attorney-general's department. Herb Brucn (SC-Esquimalt), chairman of the committee of supply, ruled that Mr. Barrett, following a filibuster by members of the NDP of more than three hours, was repetitive and abusing the rules of the house. Attorney-General Leslie Peterson moved that the Opposition Leader be suspended from the house until 2 p.m. March 12. The vote passed 29 to 12. The last time such action was taken in the B.C. legislature was in February of 1955 when Liberal member Gordon Gibson was suspended. Mr, Gibson's son, Gordon, is special assistant to Prime Minister Trudeau. The suspension of Mr. Barrett left Eileen Dailly (Burnaby-North) as leader of the Opposition. the eight-nation group formed at this year's Commonwealth conference to study Indian Ocean security. Now, however, the Nigerian government "is seeking mors tangible ways of showing ... displeasure at Britain's arms trade with Pretoria." "Pending contracts for mineral development and manufacturing in Nigeria look like going to American, Canadian and West German interests," says The Guardian. "Hints from Lagos coincide with the departure from Ottawa of the Canadian foreign minister . . . on a five-nation tour of Africa." This takes mm to Nigeria next Tuesday and also includes visits to Tanzania and Zambia, where there have been further expressions of anger over the British decision. "Not a peep from Ottawa about the timing of Sharp's trip but the message is clear enough," The Guardian comments. Worker killed under slab CALGARY (CP) - Joac Raposo, a workman at P.

BURGLARS TAKE LEG WINCHESTER, England (Reuter) -r A one-legged man told a court here that two burglars, unable to find any cash at his home, accepted a $800 cheque and then took away his artificial leg so he could not give chase.
