Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Rapeseed harvest becomes reality EDMONTON (CP) - What was termed "a flight of fancy" in 1966 - a harvest last fall of 71 million bushels of rape* seed - now is a reality, the retiring president of the rape-seed association of Canada aid Monday. "In 1968 I had spoken of such a yield as 'a flight of fancy,' " A. M. Rundman of Winnipeg told the association's fourth annual meeting. Trudeau: 'meet my girl friend9 OTTAWA (CP) - Prime Minister Trudeau brought his 22-year-old bride back to Ottawa Monday night and carried her over the threshold of the big stone official residence that now is her new home. Mr. Trudeau and the former Margaret Sinclair flew in from Vancouver on a transport department let to arrive in a stiff, snow-filled wind at 9:10 p.m. EST. "I'd like you to meet my girl friend," the prime minister said to Works Minister Arthur Laing, as he stepped from the aircraft. The beaming bride was wearing a multicolored-but mostly purple-coat and a whitish fur hat. She was carrying a large corsage of roses. Instead of going directly to their nearby limousine, the new-lyweds walked through the airport terminal where about 200 well-wishers were waiting in relative silence. GOOD FOR YOU' But the silence was broken when one man shouted "Good for you, Pierre," Then everyone began applauding. There were no statments and no questions were answered. All the comments were light, off-the-cuff remarks. When Mrs. Trudeau passed some massive snowbanks, her husband 6aid, "the crocuses will be cut in another month." He came back from the relative warmth of British Columbia wearing a fawn raincoat. They drove straight to 24 Sussex Drive, the official prime ministerial residence, where RCMP were stationed at both entrances to keep out press and public. A teen-ager was waiting outside the gate with a sign which said, "Welcome back, Mr. and Mrs. Trudeau." Grinning broadly, the prime minister rolled down his window and said, "Merci." A few minutes earner at the airport, Mrs. Trudeau was told by Barnett Danson, the prime minister's parliamentary secretary, that "you even made the Opposition happy." "One of my earliest recollec-itons of this organization was the timidity with which we approached its creation. "Would it work? What would it do? Would people support it? "Fortunately, as we have all seen, the answer to these questions has been a definite yes.' " K. D. Sarsons, chairman of the association's traffic and tariffs committee, reported the big rapeseed trade "event of the current season" was the removal of import restrictions on rapeseed by Japan. "This is scheduled to take place May 1," he said. The railways went along with a request for direct rail rates from Thunder Bay to eastern terminals and a standing rate to the Maritimes was re-issued, Mr. Sarsons said. Further representation to the railroads are being made to obtain "lower rates to the Maritime port s," and a submission to get lower freight rates on finished rapeseed products mo\-ig to Eastern Canada now has been filed with the Canadian Transport Commission. It's expected th**: a preliminary hearing will take place in April, he said. Candidate No. 4 enters Grit race EDMONTON (CP) - A fourth candidate for the Alberta Liberal party leadership was announced here - Arthur Yates of Edmonton. The leadership convention a t Edmonton Saturday already has announced candidates Rod Woodcock of St. Albert, John Day of Edmonton, a University of Alberta history student, and Bob Russell of St. Albert.

Once made $60,000 a week comic Harold Lloyd dies Court refuses Wardair bid OTTAWA (CP) - Wardair Ltd. of Edmonton was denied permission here to 1 a u n c h a Supreme Court of Canada appeal against a recent ruling of the Canadian transport commission. The commission has ordered Wardair to post a performance guarantee to cover prepayments by customers chartering flights. HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Harold Lloyd, 77, who made up to $60,000 a week in silent movie comedies as an accident-prone youth peering anxiously through horn-rimmed spectacles, died of cancer Monday at his 22-room mansion in Beverly Hills. Lloyd ranked himself as one of the six best movie comedians of the Golden Age of Comedy- the 1920s-along with Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harry Langdon, and Laurel and Hardy. Only Chaplin is alive today. Always he played a kind of comic all-American boy who p 1 u c k ily survived incredible scrapes. Audiences still see such films as Safety Last, made in 1923, in which Lloyd climbs the face of a building and finally saves himself from falling to the New lense developed EDMONTON (CP) - A new soft lense which provides wider peripherial vision, improved sharpness and eliminates spectacle blur is the latest development in contact lenses, the 51st annual convnetion of the Alberta Optometric Association was told here. Dr. Richard E. Rogenthien, a representative of Dr. Allan A. Isen of New York, who has pioneered in the field of contact lenses during the last 15 to 20 years, said the new soft lenses received approval from the pure food and drug division and appeared on the Canadian market in February. Following a program of lectures, films and demonstrations by Dr. Rogenthien and fellow representative Howard F. Wilkins, some delegates to the convention commented on a lack of supporting data on accurate comparisons and other findings documented through research. The 112 registered delegates heard lectures on clinical types of diabetes, diabetic and other changes in ocular tissues, vascular and neuropathology of diabetes and cornea changes. Courses given at the convention tie in with a bylaw which was amended last year to make 12 hours of annual study of an approved course in optometry mandatory if an association member is to continue to practice in the province. Alberta is the first province to make such a continuing educational program mandatory.

PICTURES PAID His pictures grossed more than $35 million. Feet First, The Freshman, Movie Crazy and Grandma's Boy were among his most popular. He married his leading lady, Mildred Davis, in 1923 and built on a 21-acre estate a house in Italian Renaissance style that became a Hollywood showplace, Though his popularity survived the movies' transition to sound, Lloyd was virtually retired by 1938, devoting himself to painting, photography, music and Masonic work. Lloyd made $3 for his first day of movie work, as an extra. Soon he had leading parts, and eventually directed his own movies. "Our business was built on family entertainment," he said in later years. "You used to be able to take the whole family to any movie. Now it's bard to find even one you can let your children see." Gorton on the spot CANBERRA (Reuter) - Malcolm Fraser, who resigned as Australian defence minister, told Parliament today that Prime Minister John Gorton is not fit to lead the country. Fraser, who quit Monday in a bitter personal fued with the Australian leader, put Gorton squarely on the spot and left him fighting for his political future. "He is not fit to hold the great office of prime minister," said the 40-year-old Fraser, regarded as a possible successor u Gorton falls. Political correspondent Alan Ramsey, who is at the centre of the leadership crisis, was ejected from the parliamentary press gallery today for shouting at Gorton: "You liar!" Ramsey's report in the newspaper The Australian about relations between Fraser and the army ted to the minister's resignation. The correspondent has claimed he showed the story to Gorton before publication without the prime minister taking any action to stop him-a situa. tion which Fraser described as "intolerable." His outburst came when Gorton gave his version of this claim in Parliament while commenting on the Fraser resignation. EARLY HARPS Early European harps were strung with braided horsehair or gut. New safeguards in labor bill OTTAWA (CP) - Labor Min ister Bryce Mackasey plans to introduce amendment this week to the Canada Labor (Standards) Cede which, among other things, will provide new safeguards for the rights of women workers. The minister added lightly in an interview that he may defer presentation of the bill so as not to upstage the New Democratic Parly which has scheduted a "ladies' day" debate today in the Commons on women's rights. Mr. Mackasey declined to give details of the new legislation but did grant that "an obvious guess" is that it will contain a requirement that women on maternity leave have the rWht to return to their same Job. Sources close to the minister said the amendments will incorporate tome of the principal recommendations of the report of the royal commission on the status of women, tabled Dec. 7. Also expected is a cost-of-living escalator clause for the federal minimum wage level, a change forecast by the minister last soring when the level was raised 40 cents to $1.65 an hour. MAY INVOLVE LAYOFFS The amendments may also impose improved notice and severance pay provisions for laid-off workers. Parliament at glance MONDAY, MARCH 8, 1971 Works Minister Arthur Laing said it is "very good news to Canada" that the U.S. government has authorized discussions for improvement of the Alaska Highway. The Commons began debate on legislation designed to make sure that government agencies do not exceed their powers in making regulations. Finance Minister Edgar Benson said he is willing to hear the views of any provincial leader, Quebec Premier R o b e r t Bourassa included, about the effects on industry of the buoyant Canadian dollar. Mr. Mackasey said another move will seek to make more realistic the hours-of-work clause in the present code, which has been criticized as too idealistic. While amendments to the code affect only those workers in the federal labor jurisdiction -including employees of railways, interprovinciai communications and trucking operations, banks and certain other financial institutions-they are fre- quently the pattern for amendments to provincial laws.
