Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta By MICHAEL JOHNSON MOSCOW (AP) The first volume of the new Soviet Ency- clopedia has appeared in Mos- cleansed of licturcs of Joseph Stalin. The handsome volume, cover- ng "A to also drops he thousands of Stalin quota- ions that peppered the old edi- tion, published 21 years ago. This latest rewriting of his- ory will bring up to date the Soviet line on nearly every as- icct of history and human cnowledge. Only the first volume has been released. The second is due in the fall and the last of he 50-volume set in about four rears. Of all the world figures and events that have fallen from iremlin favor since the 1949 edition, Stalin is t h e biggest oser so far. Editors of the old Volume 1 bund four excuses to print par- rails of Avilov, a winter who produced several oils of the "great under lattleship Aurora, show ing a painting of Stalin and Lenin lis- to the ship fire its gun, under political Agitation, and under Adzharsky Autonomous THE OLD QUESTION A yoOng girl seeks the answer to on old question as she looks under a cadets took pa piper's kilts during a pause in a minature tattoo in Montreal.

Little Hope Forecast For Bill To Abolish Siesta In Italy By London Observer Service Correspondent ROME One of the most un- ]ikeiy-to-succeed pieces of legis- lation ever presented to the Ital- ian Parliament is a Bill that would abolish the siesta. The sponsor of this Private Member's Bill is, however, no dreamer or fanatic, but one of Italy's most famous dress de- signers and industrialists. He is the Marquis Emilio Pucci, who put women in Pueci pants years ago and whose palazzo pyjamas and other leisure wear can be seen on well-dressed women thoughout the world. He has presented a Bill which would allow only one hour for lunch, and a mandatory clos- ing hour of 5 p.m. "for all bus- iness firms on Kalian national territory, beginning September 1, 1970." Pucci, who is also a Liberal party MP would exclude from those restrictions certain pub- lic services such as department stores and food markets which, he says, "should remain open when the majority of workers are free to shop." Among the many mysteries of modern Italy is that of work- ing hours. In the southern half of the peninsula most business- es are shut from two and a half American Business News Is All Bad NEW YORK (AP) The news in the American business world is getting Worst, Analysts and brokers keep saying the turn has to come any day now, but they say so for ef- fect rather than from convic- tion. The bad news piles up. Chrysler lost in the first three months of the year. General Motors' net income fell "33 per cent to And Ford earnings dropped 26 per cent to in the first quarter. The impact of such tremen- dous declines becomes more ev- ident when you realize that last year these three companies ac- counted for in di- rect sales. Moreover, they were the chief customers for billions of dollars DIRECTOR David Grey- eyes, 56, has been appointed director of the Maritimcs re- gion of the Indian affairs de- partment, the first Indian ever appointed to such a post. Appointment of the former chief of the Woods Crcc In- dian band at Muskeg Lake Reserve in Saskatchewan was announced by (he depart- ment. worth of glass, tires, fabrics and plastics. And through the use of their products, billions of dollars in oils, gasolines and greases were sold. The Boeing Company reported .an earnings decline and an- nounced a "severe deterioration iii the commercial airplane market." International Business Ma- chines, the premier blue the 1960s, has announced that it expects a difficult year, very likely with lower earnings. Con- trol Data lost on its computer operations in the first three months. Computer com- pany earnings are falling, and so are their stock prices. A multitude of other glamor stocks now seem to be far less attractive than once believed. High borrowing costs are said to be among the chief causes of the earnings declines. But high borrowing costs, it is said, are coming down. Don't believe it. Short-term interest rates have been rising for several weeks now. And long-term rates seem to continue on a long-term up- trend. High interest rates aren't the only things that stubbornly re- sist the so-called return to eco- nomic stability. Some econo- mists are beginning to believe inflation is here to stay. During the next five years, says Waller Heller, who won fame as chief economic in the Kennedy administration, tht United States will be lucky to average as little as three per cent inflation. The employment picture isn't any better than the rest of the news. Herbert Stein, of Presi- dent Nixon's Council of Eco- nonu'c Advisers, said further in- creases in unemployment, now at least 4.4 per cent of the labor forte, might be expected. The workers are also growing restless. The labor department totalled walkouts in the first three months of the year. More trouble might be coming. Those troubled auto companies must negotiate new contracts this year. to three hours for -lunch. In northern Italy, the interval is usually half an hour shorter. This should mean that a typist, working a six-day week, never has time to buy clothes, much less buy food, since everyone keeps the same hours. Obviously, there are a lot of silent typewriters during the working day, or hours are taken off for "headaches" because shopping must be done, and is. It has been estimated that the siesta break costs Rome bus- inesses and employees about million million) a year, calculated on the time tost and the transport cost of going tame to lunch and then returning to work. However, the arguments -in favour of the siesta are econ- omic and social as well. The wages of an Italian typist do not permit her to eat in res- taurants. Very few up-to-date businesses have canteens or cafeterias. If tie typist does not go home for lunch, then her salary must be increased. As in most Mediterranean countries, lunch is the day's main meal. Then, and only then (normally) is spaghetti or macaroni served and, if the budget allows, meat as well. Then and only then does all the family sit down to- gether at the same table. H there are small children, the father may not see them at night when he returns at 9 p m or If there are older chil- dren, he may not see them either because they will be studying or out. Only at midday does the head of the family ex- ercise his authority and that is at the lunch table. Foreign visitors sometimes harshly misjudge the siesta as being an example of national laziness tailing a cat-nap at two o'clock in the afternoon while the rest of the modern world is hard at work. But, in the first place, the nap is not always possible because the working members of the family may have to spend an hour of move of their siesta-time riding a crowded bus or trapped in a traffic jam. And a person fort unate enough to have a sleep after a big meal is also likely to be a healthier person than the Lon- doner or New Yorker who 're- turns to his desk after a quick snack (and maybe a couple of quick vuu'ka martinis) Doctors agree that the main meal should be at mid-day, and followed by a snooze. President John F. Kennedy's physician ordered him to bed after lunch, and he was no lazy executive. Emilio Pucci's proposed law may make financial sense to the industrialists, and would bring Italy into line with the other members of the Common Market (much business must be lost when the Frankfurt firm cannot telephone the Florence firm between 1 p.m. and But it docs not stand a chance of gettiug Parliament's alien- lion, or getting (he Italians to change a custom which is at least years old. Stalin Is Biggest Loser Republic, showing Stalin lead- ing a pre-rcvolutionary workers' demonstration in that southern province. Comedy Team On U.S. Network TORONTO (CP) Cana- dian Broadcasting Corporation has cold a half-hour comedy tel- evision special starring the Ca- nadian comedy team of Johnny Wayne and Frank Sinister to ABC in the United Stales, a CBC spokesman said today. Price was not disclosed. The special, which will be shown by ABC May 20, is the first produced entirely by the CBC without U.S. financial or artistic control to appear on a U.S. network in prime time. LARGE MONUMENT Alaska's Sitka monument cov- ers 54 acres. The old edition also contained a full page of Stalin's handwrit- ing under Autograph, and a half page picture of Mount Stalin under the Asia section. The encyclopedia's later vol- umes are certain to follow suit in the downgrading of Stalin, al- though the S volume undoubt- edly will give Mm a few care- fully written pages. Among other curious entries in this new, basic reference work are 3% pages of familiar polemics under the title "Amer- ican Aggression in Vietnam." A sampling of new entries in- cludes: Jewish and Chris- tian mythology, the first man and-the father of mankind. Ac- cording to the Old Testament, God created Adam after he fin- ished creating the world God blew into his nostrils, giv- ing Adam the brealh of life. Press agen- cies of the capitalist world are connected with the ruling cir- cles and the monopolies. In fact the agencies are their appara- tus for organizing informa- tion of a calculated nature and misinformation serving the pol- itical, military and economic in- terests in the monopolies." May 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 37 U.S. Stake Helps Canada Negotiate OTTAWA (CP) The large American economic stake in Canada has frequently served to bolster Canada's negotialing po- sition with the United Stales, External Affairs Undersecre- tary A. E. Ritchie said today. Mr. Ritchie, Canadian ambas- sador to Washington for four years before becoming under- secretary early this year, also told the Commons external af- fairs committee he does not share the view that Canadian foreign policy is made in the U.S. Ian Walu (L-Toronto St. chairman of the com- mittee which is conducting an exhaustive study of Canada-U.S. relations, asked Mr. Ritchie what, effect American invest- ment in Canada has on the making of Canadian foreign pol- icy and particularly of policy to- ward the U.S.' Mr. Ritchie said in experi- ence the fact that the U.S. has a big investment in Canada often helped Canada to negotiate a better deal on matters affecting its interests than would other- wise have been the case.
