Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THI UTHBRIDGE HERALD Murth Maurice Western A teachers strike teachers strike in southern Al perhaps in the whole is reported distinctly Needless to the public is deeply concerned because the major victims would be the Money apparently is not the The teachers claim that under new legislation or new the school boards are now reserving to without consulting with the certain decisions affect ing how the schools are They claim that the trustees are reducing teacher authority ami teacher respon and they dont like To the as the case is now this is a childish dispute that does no credit to either Both sides have The teachers are the professional people and surely ought to have a strong in how they do their And the trustees have a mandate from the people to run the school systems and the power to tax tho people to pay for Ob viously their responsibility is m u c h more than rubber stamping the opin ions of their When the public gets the informa tion it requires and if it finds the trus tees are merely trying to put the teachers in their then it will not hesitate to deal with the trustees at the next election or In being adamant to the point of inviting a the trustees must have the public behind Similarly the teachers need the sup port of the There is no doubt that the people have been fairly good compared with other provinces to the nor is there doubt that the people are getting worried about what appears as a public be damn ed attitude in some parts of the teaching So lets hear no more strike Social slumber The phenomenal popularity of Love Story it isnt even necessary to offer any identifying comments is provo catively probed in the article by Flora Lewis on this It is sug gested there that it is not necessar ily a good sign that the values ex pressed in the story seem to have nearly universal Excepting perhaps the profanity and pre marital the values set out are those of the old consumptive and comfortable for those who succeed order which had been so severely critiziced until re To be sure there are a couple of novel twists to the Horatio Alger scenario the hero has to sever the umbilical cord to the family fortune in order to follow the pattern of rags to riches on his own and the heroine died at an early But the savor ing of satisfaction after struggle is basic made attractive through ro mantic It has been a kind of relief to re spond to the simple story of two young people in love with each other and with There has teen a sur feit of of of of But in the relief

to effect or to effect it fast enough people may be willing to forget the future while grabbing whatever calm there is before the storm ART BUCHWALD WASHINGTON I dont mind the Pen tagon lying to me on a large scale such as when they flatly stated a few months ago that they were not keeping any files on But its their little lies that get me For the other day it was re vealed that a rusty piece of oil pipe Secre tary of Defence Melvin Laird showed to newspapermen and implied had been cap tured during the Laos offensive turned out to be over a year old and lad nothing to do with the recent Laos Secretary Laird was trying to use the pipe to prove the South Vietnamese were making great headway and had managed to cut the North Vietnamese oil supplies in When the truth was the Pen tagon naturally protested they never said it wrs this years it doesnt take much imagination to realize what seme future Pentagon briefings sre going to bo I can just see us all tiling into the Pen tagon

will have to meet ryiTAWA The minister of finance has brushed aside criticisms of the Can ada Development Corporation with the observation that Panarctic Oils the consortium in which the gov ernment has a per cent has proven a profit able It is unquestionably true that Panareties holdings in the northern islands are much more valuable than they were in December when Ar thur Laing announced the ar

peculiar credentials of Uie CDC would have invested so heavily in As Laing explained at the Panarctic was a unique He was of in the Ca nadian because gov ernments for various reasons had participated in such con sortia in other parts the But it was a new type of undertaking for Canada and the participation of govern ment was justified by consid erations going well beyond tho usual calculations of profit In the wider Panarctic was the latest in a long series of government in terventions in the economy dic tated by national considera One of the earliest was the Pacific Hallway others in clude the Crown companies which it is proposed to sell to Uie Canada Development Cor In each of these the government since it was the government and not bound by ambiguous terms of ref erence had a free

will have to balance the prospects and risks of one investment against those of This will not be easy the unlike those of ordinary cor porations and unlike the gov are supposed to think in terms of

surpris ing thing about the film Love Story h not its extraor dinary It is prettily photo a classic formula ever since womens magazine fiction was It is what the French call Bibliotheque after the pink covers on the undying collection of nice novels for nice young But it has turned out to be sharply and that could never have been predict ed from the unpreten tious I suspect that a key reason for tho controversy is precisely that Love Story isnt only playing to the ladies from the garden club and Hie There are moccasins and long hairs and ponchos and blue jeans in the lines at the box So
