Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta day, Moy 27, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Assault on George Wallace changes course of U.S. By JAMES EAYRS No matter what prognosis comes from Gov. George C. Wallace's sick-room, the assault upon his life last week has changed the course of U.S. poli- tics. Suppose his gunshot, wounds, p a r e n 11 y permanently para- lyzed, prove too severe, recu- peration too prolonged, for even a surrogate pursuit of power to be credibly presented. A Wal- lace hors de combat would re- dound to the advantage of George McGovern as the only other candidate riding the rip- tide of populist protest and dis- satisfaction at state of the union. Suppose he recovers suffi- ciently to re-enter the fray. A Wallace campaigning from a wheelchair like FDR could hardly hope to garner 1509 Democratic delegates in as distinct from wringing sym- pathy by a dramatically staged appearance on whether they may ever a; choose their leader without some deranged male in his early Oswald, a Sirhan, a a gun and cutting him down.

Studies prepared for the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Viol once in 19C8 show that few high-ranking military officers, cabinet members, congressmen, judges or state governors have been assassinated or the targets of attempted assassinations. No vice president has ever been at- tacked, only one Supreme Court justice, one cabinet member, three senators (of whom two, including Robert F. Kennedy, were no state governor assassinated since 1905. Lower down the line the flak becomes more heavy, as munic- ipal office holders-mayors, chiefs of police, D.A.'s and the gunfire from gangsters. (The only attempt on the life of Hubert H. Humphrey occurred not when he was vice- president or senator but in 1947 when he was mayor of Milwau- kee.) But it is murder in the presidency that gives America her bad name and the U.S. In- the convention floor. But his third party candi- dacv could carry enough stales in November to pitch the elec- tion of the next president into the House of Representatives for the first time in 144 years. So in a third successive cam- paign, the contest for the presi- dency of the United States has been distorted by assassination or its attempt, made to turn as j formaijon Agency sleepless much on bullets as on ballots. Suddenly the sample looks stat- istically respectable. "H he doesn't like who is his presi- some European school- children responded when asked for their impressions of the av- erage American, "he usually shoots him." That was late in 1963, and two more presidential candidates have since been shot. Americans are asking themselves despairingly nights. One out of four presidents has been a target of assassination, compared with one of every 142 senators, 166 governors and congressmen during the period 1790-1968. Four presi- dents (Lincoln, Garfield, Mc- Kinley, Kennedy) have been killed in office; four others (Jackson, the two Roosevelts, Truman) have been the targets Nurses win salary hike FERNIE The annual meet- Ing of the Fernie Memorial Hospital Society will be held Sunday, May 28, at p.m. in the high school cafeteria. Reports were received from Mrs. Mary Arbuckle and Mrs. Dora Ungaro of the B.C. Operating Room Nurses Insti- tute held in Vancouver. The meetings were reported to have been excellent and well-attended by nurses from throughout the Pacific north- west.

This new agreement provides for a salary hike of seven per cent beginning Jan. 1, 1972, and per cent at Jan. 1. 1973. Courtesy consulting staff privileges were extended to Dr. H. S.
