Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Is it too More and more people are looking on Lethbridge as a desirable place to live. And one of its best features is the relative ease of getting around. Very lit- tle time need be lost in traffic tie-ups. So more and more each bringing a car or two with are moving to Lethbridge to escape the traffic. It as night the as the chinook the that Lethbridge is headed for more traffic problems. Hopefully Toronto's plight won't be copied here. That city is choking to ieath. There is growing agreement that lutos will have to be almost prohibited 'rom entering the downtown area. Ex- jressways are not the it is tecided. The subway system is efficient frightfully but will have to je greatly extended. Concurrently ex- treme measures will have to be taken to discourage people from ever going down- even by subway. Toronto's problem is being duplicated in most big cities. Geographically Lethbridge sits more like Toronto because both are lop-sided. Lake Ontario cuts off half of the potential approach area there just as the river does here. While Lethbridge cannot avoid grievous traffic it should an- ticipate them and prepare for them. One it might be was not in providing three east-bound lanes approaching Mayor Magrath Drive on the south side of 6th when the intersection was recently rebuilt. A left- a straight-ahead and a right-turn lane would have helped a good deal. Is it too late to correct the Improvement at Trail Cominco Ltd. has been ordered to im- jrove pollution control at its lead-zinc smelter in B.C. These from provincial workmen's compensation came about not because of en- damage but because of ianger to the health of the work force. other the smelter was to improve ventilation equip- ment and to follow a policy of effecting mmediate repairs to damaged dust control devices. Workers at who are involved in an attempt to oust the United Steelworkers of America in favor of a Canadian have long protested the company's lack of adequate pollution control. While a company may not feel it has any responsibility toward the environ- ment in which it it certainly has a responsibility to protect the health of its employees. And a glance at the financial pages of this newspaper would seem to indicate that Cominco can afford to install adequate pollution control equipment. Its earnings for the first nine months of this year were contrasted with million for the same period of 1972. That's an increase of 138 per cent. RUSSELL BAKER When all's said and done WASHINGTON What a Phone constantly. Children dashing into the lining room just at dinner time to Moscow's Key Biscayne's Calls like those must be of course. It would never do to send the children back to the phone with instructions to tell Moscow that daddy was just sitting down to Sinner and could not be disturbed. And as for Key well CBS was rather insistent. We had all an- ticipated they would be after we had seen Joseph Alsop on Dan Rather's evening news program Saturday evening. It gave us a start to hear that Alsop had indeed called for the president's resignation. Although we had read his column in the paper seeing Alsop himself repeat it on CBS seemed to make it irrevocable. Then the other news of giants pronouncing came ike thunderclaps in the night. The Denver the Detroit the New York Times had all declared editorially. All were for resignation. CBS daddy is busy reading Proust and cannot be I instructed the children. Moments later they were back. says it's they reported. London and Zurich say they must know immediately whether you will be for or against I have something to I will announce I finally told CBS. It was a cold response to good colleagues in the news but sentiment must not be allowed to distort good judgment at times like these. A rash decision by a newspaper columnist on an issue this grave might wipe out Wall Street. I could not afford to panic under pressure and announce a decision either for or against resignation which the world might soon regret. I have what it takes. And the tougher things the cooler I got. I very cooly far too busy reading a chap named Proust to give any attention to this resignation business just now. You will know in good time where I and in the meantime I suggest you just keep cool and not worry too much yet about the Denver the Detroit News and the New York as cool as I I was in a panic. said one of the children. can't make the big They were put to bed instantly and sentenced to loss of three days of television privileges. The Sunday papers and radio suffused the autumn sunlight with portents of doom. Jack Anderson had been heard from. William F. Buckley Jr. had spoken in the middle forecasting resignation in terms so moving that it was hard to see how the president could resist. James Reston's patience was nearing its end. Anthony Lewis was announc- ed for and there was a rumor that Evans and Novak were nearing a possibly even Time magazine. When Key Biscayne the was understandably gloomy. If Time came out for which it was to do Sunday Key Biscayne it would cancel the whole impact of William who had just come out against resignation. What was needed at this critical Key Biscayne went was a columnist with the courage to stand up and I told Key Biscayne. am too busy reading Proust just now to decide the fate of the That was a truly cowardly of course. There may have been important things to be gained from offering them a decision then and there to come out against the resignation. But does one really dare I'll save your but only on the promise you won't go after me with the tax That seems so crass. Perhaps even criminal. How in the world do politicians muster the gall to make the deals they And being known afterwards as the person who wrote the decisive column against resignation would not be so easy to live with either. Would Joseph Alsop ever speak to such a man This is not an easy position. One wrong and it could be curtains for civiliza- tion as we have known but I am cool. If NBC phones tell them I am too busy with treacherous Albertine to settle the presidential hash right now. 'It's so nice to rule in a land where I'm Cast but undefeated By Bruce Herald special commentator WASHINGTON In tht mellow autumn dusk the White House turns its columns aglow under the westering sun. A vast circle of yellow the year's last surrounds a gushing fountain. Two furious grey squirrels fight over a fallen nut on the watched by a fat old some bored policemen in their sentry box through the iron three bronzed hip- pie youths without shirts or shoes. No one else pauses along the street to observe a scene of brooding only the mys- terious captive yester- was the nation's un- challenged the world's most powerful man. And on the morrow comes the the the missing electronic military nuclear threats and other things quite unimaginable. In this maelstrom of crisis piled on crisis the foreigner recalls Emerson's dictum even in his homely events were in the saddle and rode mankind. President Nix- a creature unique and literally sui generis in his mind and his is and to mount the and everyone seems to agree that he him- self has become the supreme issue before a great and bewil- dered people. the for- lagging behind may doubt the or of current politics as too too narrow and too brief. For if he now or Nixon must soon belong to the in a special niche re- served for history's more egr- egious eccentrics. A mighty myth of some sort is in the making. But the and the truly supreme will remain when he is gone. The as the foreigner may is whether the na- tion its governing its its tortured society and lavish can survive strains much more and than the tragedy of one not merely to one nation but to humanity entire with all its fears and all the hopes of future is breathless on that nation's fate. Far beyond the rumed presi- dent and the poisonous scan- 'far across a continental state of mixed success and the foreigner might observe the blackly as it against the autumn sunset. He might also remember a year after Mr. Nixon's electoral his ad- visers confidently predicted that all the nation's problems would be solved by a regime of law and order. Lincoln asked the same of at Gettys- but the answer was easier then though stark and terrible in a war between it was at bottom whether the or any union of free could govern itself and long endure. All men'understood such a question under a president whom all men could but under a president whom most men the American dilemma is too complex for any man to un- derstand. Certainly it is as foreigners usually the sole human dilemma of Mr. the political dilemma of his recovery or or even the con- stitutional dilemma of a governing apparatus stretch- ed to breaking point. in is it a unnatural a mere chain of blun- ders and crimes. They are all part of the ugly but not the whole. What we witness here is the bitter the long accumula- tion and collision of forces un- seen and unsuspected over half a century at least. If men could grasp its ulti- mate as they do not grasp them this is not only the greatest turning point since the Civil ob- vious a blinding mo- ment of in myriad that was long coming and for the first cannot be evaded. In the the dirty the economic the foreign policy of fragile detente and the rest are the haphazard tokens or symbols of something in- finitely more in- scrutable at the impossible for any mind to grasp. So meditating in his igno- hope and the for- eign reporter turned away from the autumn-gilded White House to ask himself how such a story should be if it could ever be written at and also whether anything written today would be valid tomorrow in the avalanche where yes may happen. But as these reports will try to the grand question has been answered in its es- sentials already. The republic stands and will despite the storms beating on its ramparts. The society will change drastically and pain- fully but it will not fall apart. The American dream is rusted and ruptured but it will return in different for its cleansing. While he had the luck in the following dreadful days to meet some of the leading figures in a drama now approaching this reporter received more wisdom from a black cook in the kitchen of a certain house out past the lights of Washington.

His excuse and that of his company was that he was just try- ing to prove how easy it is to private secret meetings in Ottawa. This is disgraceful and but for the forgiveness of the NDP the culprit could have gone to jail. The ezcuw li about as bad as .the crime.

The high cost of living has outstripped the high cost of dying.

A privately- financed Japanese complete with ii trying to photograph the Loch nwuutw Letters Doing good job I wish to congratulate the University of Lethbridge for its contribution to the develop- ment of this city through its concert cultural conference and art show. During the last year I have witnessed such dubious urban decisions as the defacing of the natural beauty of the coulees by planning an automobile-oriented bridge and doubling the city's popula- tion by planning another city on the west side. A real city is not just a com- munity with large buildings and many people it is an at- an a feeling. If this is absent all that exists is an undeveloped town with tall buildings and a lot of people. Someone at the U of L ob- viously realized that the mak- ing of a great city consists of educating its giving them an appreciation of all beautiful things natural and through am- ple exposure to cultural and ethnic displays making them aware of each other's broadening their minds by exposing them to various political per- philosophies and life styles and by giving them a pride in the. things that really count and by encouraging citizen participation. When this is achieved we will have a city leading in the sports and the ability to maintain nature within an urban set- ting. the quickest way to kill a will disappear when all residents of Lethbridge think of this as their city and not just as a place where they happen to live. In view of this I think the un- iversity is doing a good job in the urban development business. MISS L. WINOPOL Lethbridge. Moonlighting favored Discontentment and suspi- cion is growing of university and college teachers engaged in second occupations. Such at the for may have only eight hours of lectures and tutorials a week as well as very long summer vacations and oc- casional sabbatical leaves. There is a danger that may not per- form their principal or secon- dary job well es- pecially people who do house run a farm or teach as a secondary occupation. But it would be unjust if per- sons were prevented from following two occupations to increase their earnings provided that good work was done for each employer. I recommend that the coun- cil of the Lethbridge Com- munity and other such give their ap- proval. A. R. F. WILLIAMS Lethbridge. The reason why We are greatly disturbed at the lack of background infor- mation carried with The Herald's October 29th account of the coyote hunt. The Claresholm Fish and Game Association is strongly against the use of poisons strychnine and 1080 baits for coyote none of which are selective and don't just kill coyotes. Sheepmen have been losing many sheep to coyotes. Coyotes have been caught with sheep in their mouths freshly One man has lost about worth of sheep this year in addition to all his extra work required in protecting them. He too is against poisons but will use them if and came to our club asking if we could help control the coyotes kill- ing his flock. As a result our club decided to hold a coyote considered the most humane method of controlling coyotes. There is a lot of agony to dy- ing from poisons. An animal can travel up to 30 miles between the time he has con- sumed the poison before he dies.

The writer didn't mention the con- dition of their or if there is a need there. Many of us have clothes children have outgrown and would be happy to find someone who could make use of them.

Poor adult example On October went to city hall to participate in a hearing regarding a boarding house development in our neighborhood. I went there prepared to hear the pros and cons of the boarding house hopefully based on which were to be presented to the Development Appeal Board. Some of the oc- cupants of this boarding house have been relocated from the Woodwards area. I was shocked and annoyed to the point of being enraged at the behavior of these usual upper-class type citizens. The spokesman for the group against the boarding house made the statement although he did not know the exact he thought that about 60 per cent of the Indian population were second-class citizens. Being engaged to an Indian I was infuriated when I heard this rash statement. Some of our neighbors revealed they were haggling whom I would not care to count as being among my friends. They were kicking up a storm about something that might happen if Regardless of the old ounce of prevention is worth a pound of I still don't believe that so much hassle is necessary over so small a matter. I was brought up to have an open to thy and to give others a chance. As an 18 year I am subject to the opinions of the regarding young people my age. But seeing our and more responsible adults act in this way really makes me wonder what they older are complaining about when they refer to us. Although this will not change the ruling was I hope some of these and others with similar discriminatory will sit down and think. They're being exactly the kind of people they probably don't want us to be. ROSEMARIE BUCHANAN Lethbridge. The LetlibruUje Herald 504 7th St. S Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD CO. and Publishes by Hon.
