Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 WE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, May 19, 1970------------------------------------------------------- Students Stirring U.S. Into Political Revolution WASHINGTON (AP) Seas of young Americans, spilling through the halls of Congress with their questions, their accu- sations, their pleas and their busy note pads, have begun a political revolution. They come from many uni- versities. They are neat, clean, close-shaven, starched and pro- per. Their language is correct and polite and their star is poli- tics. While the spotlight and cam- eras focused on street demon- strations here following the Cambodian invasion by U.S. troops, perhaps the more sub- stantial action was beginning on Capitol Hill. Young persons, who had been out of politics since the presi- dential bid of Eugene McCarthy folded and Bobby Kennedy was shot, came back. "This is our last said a serious sem'or who passed up graduation to talk to his con- gressman. "It looks like politi- cal activity is the only avenue open." "They have taken over centre etage from said Rob- ert Finch, health, education and welfare secretary, one of many adults who hailed the change. "It's a national said Representative Allard K. Lowenstein (Dem. "We've had more, maybe or contac our1'office alone just wanting t help." Why the political tack? "Because that's the right om in a democracy, isn't a stu dent on his first political ven ture appraised. "We think de- mocracy can still work." They work at respectability and shun violence. They declare they are trying to save the dcm ocratic process. Many of them stayed awaj from the May 9 demonstration at the White House. Congressmen are paying at tention to the new student ben on polities. Some concede pri vately that for the first time Uiey are seeing young people as voters rather than carriers o picket signs. For the most part the serious political activity is being car ried by youngsters who have never" been involved with the oeace movement or who have been dormat since their disap pointments of the 1968 presiden tial campaign. Most say they are shocked to life by Cambodia but mostly by the slaying of four Kent State students by members of the Ohio National Guard. Because so many of them are new to the protest scene, their appearance is at once noticea- ble. They are not hippies. Soviets Promised Better Conditions MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet citizen was promised a better standard of living today in an election statement issued by the Soviet Communist party. It ad- mitted current shortcomings. Appealing to citizens to en- dorse the single list of candi- dates in the national election June 14, tie statement presented a broad review of So- viet domestic and foreign poli- cies. It filled Wz pages of the of- ficial party newspaper Pravda and other major newspapers. The appeal listed statistics to show how much better off the Soviet consumer is 'than at the time of the last election four years ago. It added, however: "The pro- duction of certain consumer goods does not yet meet fully the growing demand. Steps are being taken to eliminate these shortcomings to ensure further improvement of supplies and of the cultural daily life of the population. "The central committee of the (Communist) party and the So- viet government consider it nec- essary in drafting the ninth five-year plan to envisage a fur- ther rise in the living standards of the Soviet people on the basis of a steady growth of the Social- ist industry and agriculture." Soviet citizens can only vote for a slate of candidates en- dorsed by the Communist party. The ballot lists no opposition candidates. For Summer Fun CORTINA DOWN PER MONTH So Little Paid For So Much! Ah AVENUi I 61k STUEET, STREET I AVENUE, LETHBRIDCE, ALBERTA Outlandish garb and lack of grooming is "old said one new politician. "Initially, they needed establish an identity, to band themselves said an impeccable student. "But we have our identity. We have our cause. We don't need all that." Many were never part of the "freaked-out" generation, but even a noticeable number of those who were have begun to cut their hair and discard the tattered dungarees. They were as surprised as anybody when their1 lobbying drew much interest from of. cial Washington. Congressme bureaucrats, and even Pres dent Nixon made them we come. The students were stunned discover that when they put o a tie and knocked before ente ing, they would be listened t and at the number of govern ment celebrities who took u their cry. The novices have picked the tactics of politics quickly They come prepared with votin records, background informs tion. They write down almos every word they hear. Their hope is to carry throug in the fall United States genera elections, campaigning agains politicians who don't give the) the right answers now. 'What we're interested across the said a stu dent strategist, "is 50 wins an 100 others who get the he scared out of them." The les optimistic say even two or thre changes in Senate membersni could be decisive. The pessimists, particularl radicals who stand to b squeezed out if dissent become respectable, predict frustratto for the new politicians and sa they will swing back to stree tactics. FEAR A REVERSAL Friends of the new trend als fear a possible reversal if th ;tudents are disappointed their new venture. 'If this doesn't work, I don' inow what will said student. Byron Ackerman of the Stu dent Mobilization Committee said: "We think that the only way the administration in Wash jigton will pull out of Vietnam is that if masses of students and working people throughout the country go out into the streets and demonstrate." One problem is keeping for he new politicians the momen um through the summer am There are no Kennedys or Me larthys taking up the banner to pve the movement cohesion !ut efforts are being made to ap the student energies. Clear- ng houses are being set up to get the students into the cam- >aigns where they are needed. The young people plan a di- ect attack before civic clubs and ladies societies, door-to- loor, in church, in the street. 'We want to let them see that ve're not a bunch of a student explained, "but respon- ible, intelligent human eings." Count the flyers on our label. Let's see. Two in the biplane and another three on the fence posts. That's five fastfiyers. All this plus a speeding express train, a racing stagecoach and a hcpped-up Hupmobile, What's everybody's hurry? Heaven knows, in Lethbridgo we take our own sweet time brewing the beer behind that lively label. Then we age it slowly and naturally. For a flavour that goes over great.
