THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, May 28, 1973 Lewis feeds copy to cartoonists OTTAWA (CP) New Democrat Leader David Lewis says the Unemploy- ment Insurance Commission asked a pregnant woman for the place and duration of her confinement. "Behind the barn.'' the woman replied on the benefits application form. ''It. took three-quarters of an hour.' Mr. Lewis told the con- vention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoon- ists last week that the woman complained that such details were no business of the UIC. That did not swear to its one of a string he tried on the cartoon- ists, confiding that a bright touch was "no easy task for one who takes things se- riously Mr. Lewis offered for car- toon ideas the cliche-jumbling of a fellow MP, whom he left unnamed. buttered your bread, now you've got to lie in he quoted the MP as telling the Commons one day. The same MP had also ad- monished that "the Ameri- cans are our best friends whether we like them or not." -SPEED INTRODUCING THE TOYOTA COROLLA Our new Corolla 5-speed sells for The nearest 5-speed to it sells for The more expensive 5-speed comes with radial tires.

F.O B. points. License and provincial NEW YORK (Reuterl Graffiti has become New York's latest art. The scribbles, doodles and signatures which decorate buses, subways and public property are traditionally part of' the city's subculture, but they are growing in status. Luminous lettering is painted with cans of spray paint by teen-agers daring each other to raid transport depots and subway yards. The words, usually names and street numbers, are often five feet high. Subway covered with letters and num- bers meticulously finished with dots and squiggles in red, yellow, green, gold and from their un- derground tunnels like rain- bow-colored worms. Tech- nicolor buses move against a grey urban background. New York youths who be- gan their graffiti careers by night in the transport yards and on building sites are being hailed as the artists of tomorrow.

Some mutter angrily about the buses being used as black- boards as whole windows get painted over by the spray- happy youths. The ones who mind it most are those who have to clean it up. "Tills spray stuff they use just will not come com- plained one of the Transit Au- thority's maintenance men. Transit Authority Technicians are trying to develop chem- icals that will remove the paint more easily. New York Mayor John Lindsay considers the graffiti "a dirty shame." His lion cleanup campaign has failed to check the craze. Steven Iscnbcrg. Linday's chief of staff, is in charge of the anti-graffiti force. He is incensed that the vandalism is being encouraged as "an acceptable form of pop art." Arts Magazine, a leading journal in contemporary vis- ual arts, has recognized the use of graffiti in a recent re- view of the work of artist Judith Bernstein. SEEN AS COMMENTARY "By placing graffiti in a gallery, Bernstein demands a different perception of such says the maga- zine. "We see it not only as funny or obscene but also as a commentary on the atti- tudes it presents.' Obscene graffiti is rarely seen in New York. Most of the daubs say things like Jack 98 and Leroy name, followed by the number of a street or straight- forward self-advertisement. Transport officials say that the absence of obscenities is b9cause those words are given priority by the cleaners. Art or no art, city officials intend to increase measures against graffiti. They plan to install floodlights at the sub- way yards as well as alarm systems and television sur- veillance. Another idea is for eacli school to adopt a sub- way station and be respon- sible for keeping it clean. But for the time being Kil- roy is here and he never had it so good. Property sold WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon sold most of his San Clemente property nearly 2% years ago to businessman Rob- ert Abplanalp for million, the White House announced to- day. Abplanalp is a New Yorker who is a close friend of the president and also owns a house in Key Biscayne, Fla., which is part of the Florida White House i compound. Despite periodic news ac- counts inquiring into the status of the property, the White House until today had said noth- ing about Abplanalp's role. The latest upsurge in ques- tions about how the house and its site are being paid for arose nearly two weeks ago when the Santa Anna Calif., Register re- ported Senate investigators be- lieved its ?l-million-plus mort- gage might have been paid off with campaign contributions left over from. 19G8.
