Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May LETHBBIDOE HERALD-37 Behind every man Margaret Trudeau casts an admiring glance at husband Pierre who spoke at a women's tea party in Toronto. The prime minister was in Toronto campaigning for the July 8 federal election. Life almost at standstill in once-proud Ulster city BELFAST Life in the heart of this bomb-blasted which has kept going defiantly through five years of terrorist has almost ground to a stop. it has been the Protestant workers and not the Roman Catholic-based Irish Republican Army which finally brought the once-proud Ulster capital to its knees. At the best of there is little which can be considered normal about this industrial and ship-building centre since 1969 Many hotels have been bombed to the ground. Pubs have been blown houses shops historic buildings wrecked and side- walks torn up to provide ammunition for stone- throwing gangs. Restaurants and public drinking places are rare. Streets sre usually deserted after early evening and only a few movie houses continue to function. WOMEN STILL SHOPPED But somehow in the heavily- guarded city women still shopped with their children as they had for cleaning crews carted away the rubble after each buses returned to the street after being hijacked and stylishly turned-out couple's danced the night away at the fashionable Europa Hotel. Only the strike was able to change all that. The tragedy of Northern Ireland is nowhere more evident than here where the barbed-wire enclosures of the British troops stand as constant reminders that it is a city at war with itself. Many of the wrecked build- which are have simply been boarded up and abandoned but in central Belfast it would still probably be possible for a complete stranger to drive around the streets without drawing any conclusion other than that it was a dismal city. It isn't until you drive to the of mainly the the full extent of the devastation becomes apparent. Whole streets have been blocked off and houses bricked up as the people moved elsewhere because of SURVIVING DIONNE QUINTS OBSERVE 40th BIRTHDAY MONTREAL The three surviving Dionne quin- Annette.

CAMPS DIVIDE Large sectons of where houses and factories once have been cleared of the rubble caused by bombing and left empty Catholics and Protestants have crowded into separate small ghettos of squalid terraced houses and their various extremist organizations patrol the areas against outsiders. Walking through these sec- tions is a depressing experience for strangers at any time but particularly so at night when shadowy figures seem to be everywhere in the darkness and where families seem full of idle and desperately worried. In complete it is still possible to find areas of great wealth and graciousness in some of the Belfast suburbs Tough stand pledged VICTORIA Mines Minister Leo Nimsick opened debate on controversial mineral royalties legislation Tuesday with a pledge to take a tough stand in stewardship of the province's resources. In launching second reading debate on the Mineral Royalties Act the minister said for too long the department of mines has been led by the mining industry. He said he will try to change that situation so that his which is in charge of the province's non renewable is able to manage the resources and the industry rather than have the mining industry manage the department The minister said he didn't know of any bill that has created as much in a given sector as has Bill 31 among the mining industry. he he wasn't surprised because that is hit in the pocketbook will The mining industry in B.C. today is a billion dollar Mr Nimsick and added that it got to that position because other countries have depleted their resources and are looking to Pensions inquiry advocated MONTREAL W. C. Y. chairman of the Canadian Railway Labor Association called on the federal government Tuesday to conduct a full-scale inquiry into pensions for railway employees before contract talks begin this fall. In telegrams to Labor Minister John Munro and Transport Minister Jean Mr. McGregor urged the government to launch an inquiry for use by the association's 17 member railway unions when they go to the bargaining table Police get heebie-jeebies OTTAWA Sometime in the next few Prime Minister Trudeau or Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield or perhaps David the New Democratic Party is going to annoy the police. It is almost certain as the three men travel across the country seeking support for the July 8 federal election. The policemen will be RCMP security officers assigned to protect the political leaders from harm. When Mr. Trudeau plunges into a shopping-centre crowd to meet the as he did often in the 1972 annoyed RCMP probably cursing will plunge after him. Officers experienced in maintaining safety shudder at the job of protecting a prominent man in a crowd. But they are fully aware that it is impossible to restrain a politician from any activity that he thinks will bring him votes. There are said be some RCMP officers who look enviously south of the where the Secret Service appears to have the authority to prevent the president of the United States from venturing into certain dangerous areas. As Mr. Stanfield does his which he did extensively in the RCMP officer who follows unobtrusively is likely to have his worries too. The prime minister has not much choice about receiving some form of protection when he is travelling. The only question in this election was whether an RCMP man would travel with him on the Liberals' chartered DC-9 jet. An RCMP official said the Conservatives had asked for an officer to travel .with Mr. Stanfield. A Conservative said the party was offered no that an RCMP man was imposed on them.
