RESPONSEability '0 and nature LIMITED 77 City Centre Drive Ontario Eaman de Valera, the 90- year-oM colossus of modern Ire- land, is retiring after two seven-year terms. His succes- sor, to be chosen May 30, will be either Tom O'Higgins or Er- skirie Childers, two men whose names conjure up the gosts of Ireland's ferocious civil war. The Irish in the republic these days like to believe that their politics are finally free of the feuds that sprang from their 1922-23 bloodletting, that the head now rules the heart. To a degree they are right. This year's elections to the de- cided on genuine issues of pol- icy. But in this presidential elec- tion, despite a real effort to pro- duce a reasoned campaign, emotion may take over. The O'Higgins and Childers families were on opposite sides in the civil war. and both suffered cruelly. They try to forget; their supporters do not. BACKED BY COALITION O'Higgins is the candidate of the coalition won the March elections and established Liam Cosgrave as the repub- lic's prime minister. Childers, a former health minister, is the candidate of De Valera's Fianna of dominant power in Irish government for most of the last 40 years. Erskine Childers's father, a former British Army officer who joined the Irish independ- ence fighters, was shot by an Irish firing squad Nov. 24, 1922. Tom O'Higgins is the nephew of Kevin O'Higgins, deputy pre- mier of the Irish Free State government that enforced, the (death s e n te n c e Kevin I O'Higgins was later assassi- uated by the De Valera side. The, Irish presidency is a mainly ceremonial role with no executive power, close in con- cept to Britain's constitutional monarchy. During De Vafera's 14 years in the presidential mansion in Dublin's Phoenix Park, the presidency has to some extent lost its intended aura as the personification of national iden- tity. This was inevitable with De Valera's increasing age. The old warrior still is ramrod- straight and assiduous in his duties. But near-blindness and a growing asceticism have in re- cent years made his public ap- pearances less frequent. He looks forward to retirement his poetess wife to a reli- gious retreat. FISH HAWK The osprey, a bird widely known as the fish hawk, subs- ists mainly on fish which it cap- tures in shallow water by diving from considerable heights in the I air. Freight rates issue Militancy expressed on Prairie problem By JOHN DCDD EDMONTON (CP) A new kind of militancy is being ex- pressed across the Prairies over a 90-year-old problem that the West blames for many of its troubles. The issue is freight for the West a problem as old as the laying of the first rail- way track across the Prairies. More than anything else, say the Western premiers before them have rates have been a curse for the West. They have blocked its development with discriminatory rates that favor the already-rich in- dustrial triangle centred on Toronto. The problem of discrimina- tory freight rates "goes far beyond the question of eco- said Senator Ernest C. Manning, former Social Credit premier of Alberta. Higher freight rates not only were retarding industrial in the West but also 'were contributing to feelings of alienation among Western- ers towards the rest of Can- ada. Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba said there is "an amazing difference between the cost of shipping processed food as opposed to shipping commodities such as live- stock. RATES INCONSISTENT "Western Canadian freight rates are riddled with incon- sistencies and we want to get most of these, if not all, re- moved. Every one of them militates against industrial formation in Western Canada. The leaders detailed these "inconsJctencles.' Structural stee! sent from Hamilton to Calgary cost 52.46 per 100 pounds in railway charges. It only cost from Hamilton to Vancouver. Livestock could be sent live from Edmonton to Vancouver for 19 cents per 100 pounds. But frozen meat processed in Edmonton cost per 100 pounds to make the same trip. Rapeseed grown on the Prairies could be shipped to Montreal for 81 cents per 100 pounds. But if processed on the Prairies into oil, it would cost per 100 pounds on the same trip. "It simply makes no sense Peter at said Premier Lougheed of Alberta. For the first time, all four Western premiers have united to'make freight rates their top priority in discussions with the federal government. Neighbors come to rescue of family FERTILE FOREST (CP) Times can be tough when a family loses its main bread- winner but when it happened to the Verheire family neigh- bors came to the rescue. George Verheire has a broken back and is paralysed from the waist down after a motorcycle accident near his farm 10 miles west of Ponoka in central Al- berta. He has been laying immobil- ized in the University of Al- berta Hospital in Edmonton since mid-April. But he is the first farmer in his district to have his crop in the ground.
