Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Hard-Up Duke Getting Rid Of Secretary LONDON (AP) - Prince Philip, who said six months ago that the Royal Family was "going into the red," is getting rid of his private secretary to cut costs, a Buckingham palace spokesman said today. The secretary, James Orr, 52, is retiring early and the post is being abolished. Philip's personal staff now will consist of his treas-urer, Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Bonham-Carter, and his equerry, Maj. Ran-dle Cooke. Philip is paid �40,000 ($104,000) a year, mostly tax free, by the state. He has not had an increase since 1952. Make a smart move Leasing is smart business.

WIFE TAX Zanzibar recently levied a $7,200 tax on anyone who marries an island woman and tries to take her away from the island. By WILLIAM L. RYAN �AP Special Correspondent What with so many other things occupying them, Kremlin watchers are in danger of losing track of the applause situation in the Soviet Union. To an observer of Soviet affairs, the number of times a man gets applauded for a speech and the types of applause can be significant. When a Soviet newspaper reports a speech by a big man, it inserts in bracketed, bold-face type, in appropriate places, the incidence, volume and grade of applause. There are a number of grades. For example: 1. Just plain "applause." This comes at pauses in the speech, probably when the audience is unsure whether the leader is just stopping for breath or is expecting a reaction. The best course is usually to react. 2. "Continuing applause." In such cases, the audience is reasonably sure of what is expected of it. :i. "Stormy applause." The leader has just said something in praise of the Soviet government, or army, or economy. l. "Stormy, continuing applause." The speaker has praised the Communist party. 5. "Stormy, continuing applause, shouts of 'oora!" Reserved for the top-most speakers. 0. "Stormy, continuing applause, shouts of 'coral' All stand." The No. 1 grade, requiring somebody in the audience to stand and start an ovation. STALIN'S WAS TOPS The "stormy, continuing ap-p 1 a u s e, shouts of 'oora!' " grade of applause is relatively new, rivailiig the sort of applause which greeted Joseph Stalin in his heyday. Stalin's top grade of applause was "stormy, continuing, long, not falling silent applause growing into an ovation; all stand." That was the best applause any man could get and only Stalin got it. Today, only Leonid Brezhnev, the Communist party boss, seems to be getting the No. 1 grade with the "oora!" additive and the standing ovation. According to the Soviet press, Brezhnev in his t h r e e -h o u r Lenin address of April 21 drew these results: Applause, 70; continuing applause, 22; stormy applause, 12; stormy, continuous applause, nine; total 113, plus an "all s t a n d." No "oora's!" Premier Alexei Kosygin made a short Lenin Day speech. He was interrupted 20 times in all, as follows: Applause, 12; stormy applause, six; stormy, continuing applause, two, and an "all stand" at the end. The "all stand" was not too significant because on that day the audience was standing for a lot of foreign speakers. On May Day, Brezhnev made a brief address of 10 minutes or so with these results: Applause, six; continuing applause, two; stormy applause, four; stormy, continuing applause, shouts of 'oora!' five. At the end it was noted that thousands shouted "oora!", turned the thing into an ovation and then burst out with the singing of the Communist anthem, the Internationale. Brezhnev has not yet, publicly at least, got to the point where the papers note, as they did with Stalin and Nikita Krushchev, "agitation in the hall." Back To Power New Drug To Prevent Early Births LONDON (AP) - A scientist at the National Institute for Medical Research says it may become possible to provide pregnant women with a handy nasal - spray drug to prevent premature births. Dr. David G. Smyth told an interviewer yesterday he has discovered the drug and tested it at the institute, a government-financed centre in London. He said further tests on monkeys are planned by a drug company in Denver, Colo. The drug is based on oxytocin, a hormone that normally helps to induce birth, Smyth said. He said chemical modifications to the hormone cause it to have the reverse effect of delaying birth. The drug, successfully tested on guinea pigs and rats, could be on the market in two years, possibly in the form of a nasal spray, Smyth said. "As soon as a woman felt a birth pain coming she would sniff the drug," he said. "That would stop the contractions of her womb and she could then call her doctor." HONG KONO (Reuters) - Prince Norodom Sihanouk, deposed Cambodian head of state, has been gathering forces in preparation for his long march back to Phnom Penh. Since his overthrow March 18, he has formed an alliance with North Vietnam, the Viet Cong and the Laotian Pathet Lao, formed a government in exile and a national liberation army and secured Communist China's "all-out support." The prince is relying heavily on support from North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces who control a big part of Cambodia east of the Mekong River. But although Premier Chou En-lai of China has told Cambodian exiles that the Chinese people would "fight shoulder to shoulder with them and win vie-1 tory together," there seems little prospect of any direct Chinese military intervention in the Indochina conflict. The new Cambodian government of Premier Lon Nol is undoubtedly concerned about the possibility of the prince returning and the virtual certainty that if he does it will be as a puppet controlled by Hanoi. WITHDREW DIPLOMATS When the prince announced in Peking May 5 the formation of his new cabinet, China immediately recognized it and broke with the Phnom Penh government, recalling its diplomats and technicians from Cambodia. A dozen countries, including North Vietnam, North Korea, Egypt, Yugoslavia, Albania, Iraq, Syria and Algeria, but not the Soviet Union, now recognize the government in exile. The government in exile is under the leadership of the National United Front of Kampuchea (Cambodia )-a political organization set up in Peking by Sihanouk. In its policy statement, the Front announced the formation of a National Libertion Army and a program of rural and economic reform designed to win peasant support. PRINCE SIHANOUK . . .
