Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 25 years Canadian. 400 years of rugged independence TuMday, March LETHBRIDOE HERALO-7 By WILLIAM BORDERS New York Times Service ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland Twenty five years after formally becoming part of Canada, this bleak, rock Island remains in many ways a land apart, as independent in outlook as the crusty fishermen who work its rugged coast. Formerly an impoverished colony of Britain, Newfoundland joined the confederation of Canada on March 31, 1949, for reasons that were largely economic and the union worked. Although the land is still poor and the standard of living often meager, the federal government pours in grants and benefits and also pays half the provincial budget From the remote fishing villages dotted across the land to this 400-year-old capital city, where steep rows of red and blue and yellow frame houses contrast with the gray winter sky, many of the jobs and much of the economic activity now depend on Ottawa "But mind you, that needn't make us beholden, not a NOOK will be Opening Soon! Newfie remains a land apart said a retired mariner, employing, like generations of Newfoundlanders before him, the archaic accents of rural Britain. The dialect for example, "I'se the the title of a popular song here, means "I'm the boy" is one of the fewjn all of English speaking Canada that people from other parts of the country sometimes find incomprehensible, a fact that helps to make Newfoundland an object or ridicule in some circles on the mainland. "Newfie jokes" play the same conversational role in Toronto or Montreal that Polish jokes do in New York, making fun of the Islanders' presumed dull wittedness "did you hear the'one about the Newfielioctor who tried to cure a hemophiliac with MainJanders are also sometimes startled at the rough and tumble of Newfoundland politics. Just the other day, a session of the provincial legislature here was enlivened by an allusion to the decision of Premier Frank D Moores two years ago to leave his wife and seven children and marry a younger woman who worked in his office. "At least I look after my a member of the opposition exploded during a debate on a brewery contract "I have moral principles; that's more than the premier can say."

Smallwood, who was defeated in 1971. Oliver L.

The often fog bound island of Newfoundland, in the northeast corner 'of North America, is the size of Ohio with half a million people. The mainland territory of Labrador, which is also part of the province, is twice that size, although fewer than people live there. With thousands of miles of coastline and hundreds of deep, well-protected coves, this land has traditionally depended upon the ocean. After sailing along the spectacular cliffs here in 1497, John Cabot, the navigator, reported that "the sea is swarming with fish, which can be taken not only with the net, but in baskets let down with a stone."

In the wake of the attempted kidnapping last week of Princess Anne, the home secretary, police experts and others are agonizing over a variety of se- cret plans to improve the royal security system, which to many foreigners seems casual and even naive. These plans will be placed before the Queen-who has final this week. Sources suggest the officials are likely to have a major disagreement with the Queen, albeit a polite and private disagreement. Sources say the subject was discussed.during the weekend at Windsor Castle, where some of the family gathered following the return of the Queen and Prince Philip from a tour of Indonesia. Until the incident involving led to immediate temporary measures, including unprecedented security when she flew off to West Germany protection of the Royal Family basically de- pended on 20 policemen, only half of them on duty at any time. Although heavy security operations are mounted for such big royal occasions as Anne's wedding last Nov. 14, the normal practice is to allot one bodyguard to each royal person. These bodyguards get some special with a four-day course in handling a collect the same pay as colleagues on regular duty. For instance, Inspector James Beaton, 30, one of those shot during last Wednesday's affray, earns the basic a year, although he gets a allowance for tropical clothes on tours to warm cli- mates and morning dress for the Ascot races and the like. The Queen's bodyguard is Michael Trestrail, 42, always referred to in the court circular of royal events as Her Majesty's police officer. Home Secretary Roy Jenkins has emphasized that any new security measures must remain confidential to be effective. A number of unobtrusive measures may be possible, such as bullet-proof windows and radio-telephones in royal cars. But the Queen's dislike of anything along the lines of great phalanxes of motorcycle outriders in the style of United States presidents limits the scope of planners trying to im- pose strict precautions. Her known views are reflected in recent Buckingham Palace statements, with Press Secretary Ron Allison saying it would be a pity if stepped-up security restricted moves toward greater informality that the Queen and other royal members adopted in recent years. "They can't live their whole lives in bullet-proof said another palace spokesman. Even Jenkins has conceded it would not be easy to provide fully bullet-proof vehicles without the cars "taking on the nature of semi-armored vehicles." Consideration also is being given to limiting advance pub- licity on royal travels, tuning and routes. From the so-called isolated villages accessible only by water, open boats still head out each day at dawn, returning at dusk with a catch of cod But here, as elsewhere in the North Atlantic, individual fishing is declining as the fish become more scarce and the modem fleets from Europe, the Soviet Union, and Japan compete with the kind of fervor that led last year to the "cod war" between Britain and Iceland. Only Newfound- landers make a living fishing now, a decline of several thousand from a few years ago. The trouble is that here, on what former Premier Smallwood once called "this poor bald there is not much else to do. With an unemployment rate of nearly 14 per cent, twice the national average, the provincial government has eagerly and some say, too uncritically welcomed industrial investment. The most recent example was the opening last year of an oil refinery'and a deep-water port 100 miles west of here in the village of Come By Giance. The origin of the name Come By Chance is obscure, but no one sees anything particularly funny about it in a province that also includes the communities of Happy Adventure, Witless Bay and Blow Me Down.
