Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta wi,^ mm niiiim m i .iijwiin w 1.1 < CONSTABLES ON PARADE - These policemen wear uniforms used by Halifax police since 1840, as part of graduation ceremonies at the Maritime Police School. Modelling the uniforms were, left-right, Constable Harvey Boutilier in present-day dress; Constable David Gunn in uniform used 1931-39; Constable John Bowser in uniform worn between 1890-1931; Constable Ed Richardson in uniform worn 1864-90; and Detective George Spark, whose uniform was worn 1840-64. 'Struck goods' clause demand turned down $37 million investment for Canada VANCOUVER (CP) - The British Columbia mediation commission Monday rejected Teamsters' union demands for inclusion of a controversial "struck goods" clause in a master agreement covering the general trucking industry in the province. The dispute between the union and the Automotive Transport Labor Relations Association, representing the majority of trucking firms in B.C., was sent to the commission for a binding decision after the provincial government stepped in last month to end a week-long strike-lockout in the industry. The dispute centred around the struck goods clause, which the union demanded in order that its members would not have to handle goods moved across a legal picket line. In an 11-page judgment signed by Commission Chairman Jonn Parker, the commission said the Trade-Unions Act of B.C. "recognizes legal strikes and lockouts but limits picketing to the employer's place of business, operations or employment." It added: "The law says in effect, that no trade union or other person shall endeavor to persuade anyone not to handle struck goods. It would be high-handed indeed for us to withdraw this protection which the legislature has granted employers and if we did so, we would clearly be violating the spirit of the law if not the law itself." The enforced agreement is retroactive to last Jan. 1 and runs through to the end of the year. NEW WAGE SCHEDULE The agreement includes a new schedule of wages agreed to by the 3,500-member union and the association last January. Wages under the new contract range from $4.20 an hour for swampers and warehousemen to $4.35 for drivers of heavy trucks, retroactive to Jan. 1 with an additional five cents hourly effective July 1. The former wage scale COME TO ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS GRAND OPENING NEW STORE - 426 6 St. S. 9:30 a.m. Thursday FREE GIFT - PRIZES ranged from $3.80 for swampers and warehousemen to $3.95 for drivers of heavy equipment. Blair Whitelock, president of Teamster Local 31 in Vancouver, said the union will continue to fight for the struck goods clause when negotiations start later this year for a 1972 contract in B.C. and also in connection with contracts involving inter-provincial trucking, which come under federal rather than provincial jurisdiction. He also said the local will follow "teamsters law," by shutting down any employer who disciplines a union member for refusing to handle goods brought through a picket line. He said the teamsters law was a policy decision taken at a membership meeting held by the union to discuss the government's back-to-work order in February. Boyle's Column NEW YORK (AP) - No one ever completely outgrows his childhood. After we supposedly leave childhood behind, we forever afterward keep looking behind us in our heart, hoping to find its mystery again. Some of its magic we keep, of course, or life would become too dreary by repetition to put up with. But much of it we lose and yearn for thereafter, not often even consciously realizing what we miss. What actually are the things about our vanished childhood we feel nostalgic about? Well, you might miss such things as: Touching a wet paint sign to see if the sign is still telling the truth. The tall red-haired girl you wooed but never won in kindergarten. Behind every successful man lies the memory of at least one red-haired girl he never married-and perhaps five. Wheeling around and around, arms outflung, and pretending to fall down dizzy. Walking up and down the sidewalk in front of a girl's house and feeling like a god if the curtains of an upstairs window trembled, because that meant she was peeking at you. GONE FOREVER Putting your tongue in the bottomless cavity left by a pulled tooth and having long, long thoughts about mortality. Part of you was gone forever. Drawing a funny cartoon on the first letter you wrote to a friend away at summer camp, and hoping he'd show it to all the other kids there.

Visiting relatives in the country and getting your first taste of homemade bread. Country eggs tasted different, too, didn't they? Much better -after you got used to their freshness. The lonesome cry of a locomotive echoing at night in far away hills and darkened farmlands. PONDER DEEDS Pondering guiltily whether God really saw all the bad things you did-or only the very worst ones. Going into a closet while playing postman at a birthday party and waiting for the girl to take the first step to kiss you. Finally, making the first move yourself and getting a mouthful of fabric from a coat hung there. The agony of having to pass surreptitiously in class a note from your best friend to the girl you secretly loved. Humming a tune through a piece of toilet paper placed on a pocket comb.

Would you always seem a stranger, play-acting to yourself?  You can go home to childhood again-but only as a visitor. New transatlantic telephone cable to be laid OTTAWA (CP) - A new transatlantic cable will be placed by 1974, capable of adding more than 1,840 telephone circuits between Canada and Europe, Communications Minister Eric Kierans announced in the Commons Monday. Mr. Kierans said months of negotiation have resulted in agreement between Canadian Overseas Telecommunication Corp., a Crown-owned agency, and the British Post office. Canadian investment would be $37 million. The cable would run from a point in Nova Scotia to a point in Cornwall, England. The high-capacity cable would have 400 circuits more than all existing transatlantic cables, he said. The new submarine cable will be known as CANTAT-2. A news release said it would be about 2,840 nautical miles long and start near Halifax. Some of its 1,840 circuits would be used for telegraph and telex traffic, leased circuits and data transmission. The Canadian ship John Cabot would be used extensively for route surveys, cable-laying and cable-burying. ; CANTAT-1, placed in 1961, has 80 circuits and is owned by COTC and the British post office. TAT-1, lirst telephone cable laid across the Atlantic, began to operate in 1956 as a joint endeavor between COTC, the British post office and American Telephone and Telegraph Co. COTC also operates satellite telephone circuits across the Atlantic from its station at Mill Village, N.S. \ Mr. Kierans said the decision to build the new cable is based on projections for a 20-per-ceht annual growth for transatlantic circuits in the next 15 years. This would bring Canadian de- mand to about 4,600 circuits by 1985. "A dynamic element in this pattern of growth has been the increase in direct dialing between countries on both sides of the .Atlantic." Heath Macquarrie (PC-Hillsborough) said he welcomes any development that would encourage closer contacts between countries of the world, and he had confidence in COTC to represent Canada's interests. The Singing prince heaved out of car LONDON (AP) - Prince Sa-yajirao of Baroda, 26-year-old pop singer and son of the Maharanee of Baroda in India, was tossed out of a car in Berkeley Square Monday after being stripped of two matching gold and diamond bracelets, two diamond rings, an amethyst ring and a diamond necklace, police said.,The jewels were valued at $48,000. The prince made his first record last week. His mother, reputed to have one of the world's finest collection of gems, gave him a maxi-length mink coat reported to be worth $8,400 for the occasion.

It was important that Canadians be in charge of Canada's mes- Rene Matte (Creditiste- Champlain), said he hopes that Canada would experience the advantages of the cable as foreseen by the minister. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mtohahtc Metropolitan Bldg. 328-409S Rainstorms kill 36 RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuter) - Fierce rainstorms accompanied by high winds hit this Brazilian city during the night and municipal authorities said today at least 36 persons died. The wind and rain began Sunday evening. Two rivers in the neighborhood of the huge Maracana soccer stadium overflowed their banks, trapping thousands of people attending a game. Hundreds of spectators' cars were swept away by fast-flowing floodwaters in the surrounding streets, eyewitnesses said. Trees were uprooted by the winds. Many parts of Rio were a shambles today with mud and stones piled high, impeding traffic and making thousands of commuters late for work. The storm was the second deluge to hit Rio de Janeiro in the last month. Torrential rainstorms which struck the city at the end of February killed 130 persons and left 40,000 homeless. Similar downpours killed hundreds here in 1966 and 1967. MARRIAGE CENTRE In Carson City, Nev., 21,000 people were married last year -more than the city's 15,000 population. SPECIAL!
