Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 tHt 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD 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 moun- tain. The 51-year-old prime minis- ter 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 com- munity about 75 miles north of Vancouver following a reception and moved into the Sinclair family's condominium, a mod- ern two-storey structure in a de- Rose's mistrial motion lost MONTREAL (CP1 Paul Rose's third motion for mistral was rejected immediately today by Mr. Justice Marcel Nichols In Court of Queen's Bench.

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 honey- moon 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 life during a 10-day holi- day here a year ago. Mr. Trudeau and his preily wife appeared happy and re- laxed as reporters gathered around them on each of their visits to the mountain Reporters had been discreet in not waiting around the Tni- deaus' residence and RCMP se- curity men posted nearby ha< little to do. The prime minister was askei Sunday about prospects for a federal election in the fall. "Not very he replied Tm going to be too busy mar ried." Mrs. Trudeau appeared to enjoy the questioning of her his answers. Asked whether publicity sur- rounding the honeymoon both- ered her, she replied: "No, not in the least." A rumor that the prime minis- ter had injured a leg spread fol- lowing the couple's first day on the slopes. Attendants at the base of the enclosed gondola had watched Mr. Tru- deau walk away limping, bxit it was all for the benefit of wait- ing 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.

The small tug Westbridge II was forced 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 re- ported heading south Sunday The captain said he would go to the Queen Charlottes anc make repairs but the vesse never made it. The boiler breakdown left the ship rolling heavily as the storm student at Roosevelt high school in St. Louis, said in an inter- view he realized the Canadian government could not end the tmnt immediately without filling the economic gap. "I still think it's wrong to kill said Hartzell. Only Canadian ships may hunt in the Gulf were a quota of seals has been set. Cana- dian ships may take another in international waters on the front. Norweigian ships are re- stricted to the front and have a quota of seals. Shore- based hunters who do not have to observe the official date are allowed 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 He said a larger kill would decimate the herd. But Joseph Geraci of the zool- ogy department of the Univer- sity of Guelph, Ont, who has spent the last four years study- ing the nutrition of harp seals in the Gulf, said the quota was based on annual seal-population urveys and the kill was not in excess of the maximum sustain- able 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. SiO CRUELTY FOUND Dr. Geraci said a "very thor- ough investigation" in 1967 by nternationally known veteri- janan pathologists from five countries gathered conclusive evidence that no cruelty existed in the hunt. Miss Lambert said the f r i e n d s' organization, which pickets Canadian consular and airline offices in New York, hopes to interest the public in visiting the area to see the ani- mals. The trip by the four teena- gers would "perhaps impress the Canadian government into seriously considering making the area a sanctuary." Mis Lambert said the Wends were aware the Norwegians were "brutal, if not more so CALGARY than half the academic staff at the University of Calgary are Ca- nadian citizens, President Dr. A. W. R. Carrothers today told a public inquiry into non-Cana- dian influence in education. But for the last two years the percentage of Canadians has been increasing while re- cruitment of United States citi- zens reached its lowest point during the current term. Of the 880 academic staff at the university, 405 are Cana- dian, 196 Americans, 149 Brit- ish, 33 from India and Paki- stan with the remainder from 34 other countries. Dr. Carrothers said in deter- mining 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 per cent of the 694 took their highest degree from a Ca- nadian institution while 45.9 per cent graduated from U.S. schools. Dr. Can-others was testifying at the opening day of the hear- ings which were scheduled last November by the provincial government to assess the im- pact of foreign instructors and teaching materials in post-sec- ondary education in the prov- ince. The seven-member commit- tee 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 pro- grams at Canadian schools which caused a shortage of qualified academics, the diffi- culty new universities such as U of C had in attracting peo- ple of "outstanding ability" order lo associate themselves! with more prestigious institu- tions and colleagues, to earn higher salaries and to avail themselves of more abundant research funds and facilities." Others went to eastern Can- ada for the same reason. The movement was not en- tirely detrimental and now "a very large number of Cana- dians, in senior positions in C a n a dian universities, were given first quality graduate educations at the best Ameri- can universities." Lawyer chosen N.S. Tory leader at.30 a m Sat captain and the ease in recruiting in the U.S. All C a n a d i a n 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 govern- ments, he said. The increase in demand for instructors "W a s not met by any corresponding increase in the supply of academic staff" but coincided with a surplus "ia other countries, particular- ly the U.S., the United King- dom and continental Europe." Shortages were most acute in the social sciences, humani- ties and biological sciences. "There has been a historical tendency for some high-quality Canadian academicians to mi- grate to the United States in HALIFAX (CP) John Bu- chanan, a Halifax lawyer who first entered politics four years ago, was elected on the second ballot at a convention here Sat- urday as the leader of the Nova Scoria Progressive Conservative party. Mr. Buchanan, 39, first elected to the provincial legisla- ture 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 bal- lot with 212 votes. Mr. Buchanan, the only Con- servative to hold a seat in the eight Halifax ridings when his party was defeated in an Octo- ber 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 Etanfielc and Ike the new leader said.

Board says plane crash avoidable a WASHINGTON (AP) A fed- eral board said today the 31- death Wichita State University lootball disaster could have lecn avoided if the co-pilot of ;he chartered plane had realized only a minute sooner that he was1 flying into a dead-end can- yon. The National Transportation Safety Board made the finding in its official report on the Oct. 2 crash of the overweight pro- peller plane on the slopes of the Continental Divide west of Den- ver while the team was flying to Utah State. The board said the co-pilot, Ronald G. Skipper, 35, Okla- homa City, had decided to fly through the Rocky Mountains "purely for sightseeing pur- poses." But it said he presum- ably spent no time studying tha aerial charts he bought at a Denver stop.
