Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - TH! LETHBRIDOI HIRA10 - Monday, March t, 1971 Trudeau, bride end honeymoon ALTA LAKE, B.C. (CP) -Prime Minister Trudeau and his 22-year-old bride Margaret were expected to return to Ottawa today, ending a three-day skiing honeymoon on picturesque Whistler Mountain in Garibaldi provincial park. The newlyweds spent less than three hours skiing Sunday before attending an afternoon Roman Catholic mass with about 20 other skiers in a small chapel at the foot of the mountain. The 51-year-old prime minister and the former Margaret Sinclair, a daughter of former Liberal cabinet minister James Sinclair and Mrs. Sinclair, were married in a secret service early Thursday evening in North Vancouver. They drove to this small community about 75 miles north of Vancouver following a reception and moved into the Sinclair family's condominium, a modern two-storey structure in a de- Rose's mistrial motion lost MONTREAL (CP) - Paul Rose's third motion for mistrial was rejected immediately today by Mr. Justice Marcel Nichols in Court of Queen's Bench. Mr. Justice Nichols is presiding at Rose's trial for non-capital murder in the October Wd-nap^laying of Pierre Laporte, former Quebec labor minister. The trial resumed today after being adjourned last Thursday and Friday because of a late winter blizzard. velopment known as Whistler Alpine Village. The couple left their honeymoon residence only to ski and made no appearances at any of the three or four licensed lounges and pubs in the area. All had kept a table reserved just in case. The prime minister had sampled some of Whistler's night fife during a 10-day holiday here a year ago. Mr. Trudeau and his pretty wife appeared happy and relaxed as reporters gathered around them on each of their visits to the 6,000-foot mountain. Reporters had been discreet in not waiting around the Tru-deaus' residence and RCMP security men posted nearby had little to do. The prime minister was asked Sunday about prospects for a federal election in the fall. "Not very great," he replied. "I'm going to be too busy mar* ried." Mrs, Trudeau appeared to enjoy the questioning of her husband-and his answers. Asked whether publicity surrounding the honeymoon bothered her, she replied: "No, not in the least." A rumor that the prime minister had injured a leg spread following the couple's first day on the slopes. Attendants at the base of the 3,800-foot enclosed gondola had watched Mr. Trudeau walk away limping, but it was all for the benefit of waiting reporters. When one asked whether he had hurt his leg, he laughed and said: "I gave you a story." He was in good spirits again Sunday. When asked to say something quotable, he smiled and said "fuddle duddle." Then the couple drove off in their green station wagon, back to the condominium.

Students suggest seal herd area tourist-attraction site CAP AUX MEULES, Que. (CP) - A group of students from the United States visited a seal herd on drift ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence Sunday and later suggested that the area be turned into a tourist - attracting sanctuary for the animals. "I think tourists would bring more money to the area than killing seals," said Susane Kar-Iiner, 15, a Grade 9 student from the Long Island, N.Y. suburb of Syosset. But Brian Davies, executive director of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, said the cost of operating the helicopters to bring tourists to the seals would be too high for a private operator. He suggested the federal government could subsidize such an operation since the seals had as much esthetic value as the art galleries supported by Ottawa. The students were visiting the herd at Mr. Davies' invitation during a trip promoted by the Friends of Animals line, of New York. Two of the teen-agers and a reporter fell to their hips in the Gulf's freezing water while visiting a herd 35 miles northwest of this Magdalen Islands' town Sunday. Anne Cuneio, 17, of Sullivan, Mo., Richard Mureno, 17, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Dick Krantz, 30, of the St. Louis Globe Democrat, fell through the ice almost simultaneously while returning to a helicopter after petting seal pups. They scrambled to safety end were quickly flown back to their hotel. Joyce Lambert, an official of the U.S. organization which uses no capitals in its name, accompanied others of the group to the herd in an uneventual trip earlier Sunday. The students agreed the hunt should be banned but at least two said they realized suh actions could mean economic hardship to some Canadian fishermen. Each described the hunt as cruel. Oscar Hartzell, 18, a Grade 11 Tug has crippled freighter in tow VANCOUVER (CP)-A spokesman for Rivtow-Straits Ltd. said Sunday officials hoped the tug Gibraltar Straits would tow the crippled Dutch freighter Antiiliam Star into Vancouver harbor by Tuesday afternoon. The vessel was reported about half-way across Queen Charlotte sound Sunday night with more than 350 miles to go to Vancouver where repairs are planned for boilers which broke down early Saturday, leaving the ship adrift off the southern tip of the Queen Charlotte Islands. The freighter was being blown Saturday night towards the rocky shoreline by 30-foot waves and 50 m.p.b. winds when it sent out its distress signal. The small tug Westbridge II was forced "back by the storm and the 78-foot Gulf Jean picked up two nylon ropes from the An-tillian Star to tow her about six miles from the shore where the second rope snapped under stress. The first had broken closer to shore. The 131-foot Gibraltar Straits arrived early Sunday and used the last of 12 rockets for its tow-line launching gun to put a line aboard the freighter. The tug and its tow were reported heading south Sunday night at a speed of about six toots with prospects of somewhat better speed once they escaped the 35- to 40-m.p.h. winds and arrived in Johnstone Strait, between Vancouver Island and the mainland. The Antillian Star and its crew of 31 had been in Vancouver last week for cargo and repairs before leaving for further loading ait Port Alberni, B.C. She was outbound from Port Alberni with a cargo of sulphur, tractors and newsprint for Korea and the Philippines when she reported losing power. The captain said he would go to the Queen Charlottes and make repairs but the vessel never made it. The boiler breakdown left the ship rolling heavily as the storm picked up and at 8:30 a.m. Saturday the captain radioed the Canadian Coast Guard that he needed assistance, but there was no danger of damage to his vessel. However, by 8:35 p.m. Saturday the roayday distress signal went out, reporting the ship without power and unable to make headway in heavy seas. It was then that the tugs were sent to her aid. Hecklers disrupt Turner speech at UBC lecture VANCOUVER (CP) - Justice Minister John Turner said Saturday night, after being shouted down at a Vancouver Institute lecture at the University of British Columbia, "I've run into a lot of heckling but this is the first time I've ever been prevented from speaking." He said he wouldn't want to legislate against the kind of demonstration that disrupted the meeting. "This is a necessary risk of free discussion," he said. "I'm only disappointed that the people here couldn't hear the speech." The minister had offered to answer any questions if the demonstrators would let him speak but they refused. Bedlam prevailed as he was heckled and had a tomato thrown near him. A couple of fights broke out in the crowd Of the more than 200 in attendance, only about 30 were involved in the pre-arranged protest supporting persons arrested under the War Mea sures Act in Quebec. One of their chants was: "No free speech for the Quebecois, no free speech for Turner." Majority of academic staff at V of C not 'Canadians' Liberal MP dies Regina (AP) - Albert Bruce Douglas, Liberal MP for the south-central Saskatchewan riding of Assiniboia, died in hospital Saturday after a brief illness'. He was 58. Funeral services will be held Tuesday in Weyburn, Sask. student at Roosevelt high school in St. Louis, said in an interview he realized the Canadian government could not end the hunt immediately without filling the economic gap. "I still think It's wrong to kill them," said Hartzell. Only Canadian ships may hunt in the Gulf were a quota of 50,000 seals has been set. Canadian snips may take another 50,000 in international waters on the front. Norweigian ships are restricted to the front and have a quota of 100,000 seals; Shore-based hunters who do not nave to observe the official date are allowed 45,000 seals in all areas. Mr. Davies, who began a campaign several years ago to have the hunt banned, said the quota should be no greater than 125,000. He said a larger kill would decimate the herd. But Joseph Geraci of the zoology department of the University of Guelph, Ont, who has spent the last four years studying the nutrition of harp seals in the Gulf, said the quota was based on annual seal-population surveys and the kill was not in excess of the maximum sustainable yield. The main portion of the gulf herd, which local fishermen said was the area's largest in several years, drifted to within 12 miles of land by late Sunday. NO CRUELTY FOUND Dr. Geraci said a "very thorough investigation" in 1967 by internationally - known veterinarian pathologists from five countries gathered conclusive evidence that no cruelty existed in the hunt. Miss Lambert said the friends' organization, which pickets Canadian consular and airline offices in New York, hopes to interest the public in visiting the area to see the animals. The trip by the four teenagers would "perhaps impress the Canadian government into seriously considering making the area a sanctuary." Mis Lambert said the friends were aware the Norwegians were "brutal, if not more so than the Canadians." She also discounted claims that killing methods were humane. "The mother seal suffers as well-the baby seal suffers fear." The pups are killed by being struck on the head by a 30-inch club, its weight and size set by government regulations. CALGARY (CP)-Less than half the academic staff at the University of Calgary are Canadian citizens, President Dr. A. W. R. Carrothers today told a public Inquiry into non-Canadian influence in education. But for the last two years the percentage of Canadians has been increasing while recruitment of United States citizens reached its lowest point during the current term. Of the 880 academic staff at the university, 405 are Canadian, 196 Americans, 149 British, 33 from India and Pakistan with the remainder from 34 other countries. Dr. Carrothers said in determining the cultural influence of foreign instructors, "the fact of citizenship is of limited value." Of more importance were country of birth, country of first degree and country of highest degree. Among staff with the rank of professor - the highest paid and the most influential-24.5 per cent of the 694 took their highest degree from a Canadian institution while 45.9 per cent graduated from U.S. schools. Dr. Carrothers was testifying at the opening day of the hearings which were scheduled last November by the provincial government to assess the impact of foreign instructors and teaching materials in postnsec-ondary education in the province. The seven-member committee is chaired by Arnold Moir of Edmonton. GIVES REASON The reason for the high per-centage of foreign instructors was due mostly to the lack of adequate post  graduate programs at Canadian schools which caused a shortage of qualified academics, the difficulty new universities such as U of C had in attracting people of "outstanding ability' and the ease in recruiting in the U.S. All Canad 1 an universities grew rapidly during the mid-1960s at the urging of the Econ omic Council of Canada and with the financial assistance of provincial and federal governments, he said. The increase in'demand for instructors "was not met by any corresponding increase in the supply of academic staff" but coincided with a surplus "in other countries, particularly the U.S., the United Kingdom and continental Europe." Shortages were most acute in the social sciences, humanities and biological sciences. "There has been a historical tendency for some high-quality Canadian academicians to migrate to the United States in order to associate themselves with more prestigious institutions and colleagues, to earn higher salaries and to avail themselves of more abundant research funds and facilities." Others went to eastern Canada for the same reason. The movement was not entirely detrimental and now "a very large number of Canadians, in senior positions in Canadian universities, were given first - quality graduate educations at the best American universities." Lawyer chosen NJS. Tory leader HALIFAX (CP) - John Bu-janan, a Halifax lawyer who first entered politics four years ago, was elected on the second ballot at a convention here Saturday as the leader of the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative party. Mr. Buchanan, 39, first elected to the provincial legislature in 1967, won Saturday on the second ballot with 391 votes, 45 more than Gerald Doucet, a former education minister. A third candidate, Roland Thornhill, mayor of neighboring Dartmouth, announced he would support Mr. Buchanan after ending up third on the first ballot with 212 votes. Mr. Buchanan, the only Conservative to bold a seat in the eight Halifax ridings when his party was defeated in an October election, said he will be back in the legislature when the spring sitting resumes tonight. "It will be a big Job to follow in the footsteps of Bob Stanfield and Ike Smith," the new leader said. The convention was called in January after former premier .G I. Smith announced he was resigning because of ill health. He suffered a heart attack while vacationing after the provincial election which saw the Conservatives defeated after 14 years in office. Heart attack kills woman after crash CALGARY (CP) - RCMP said Sunday that Margaret Watson, 58, of Calgary died of a heart attack after the car in which she was a passenger col-lied with a second vehicle in the city Saturday night Mrs1. Watson was a passenger in a car driven by her husband, Lloyd Alfred.

Board says plane crash avoidable ^ WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal board said today the 31-death Wichita State University football disaster could have been avoided if the co-pilot of the chartered plane had realized only a minute sooner that he was flying into a dead-end canyon. The National Transportation Safety Board made the finding in its official report on the Oct. 2 crash of the overweight propeller plane on the slopes of the Continental Divide west of Denver while the team was flying to Utah State. The board said the co-pllot, Ronald G. Skipper, 35, Oklahoma City, had decided to fly through the Rocky Mountains "purely for sightseeing pur-poses." But it said he presumably spent no time studying the aerial charts he bought at a Denver stop.
