Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Life In The Soviet Union By HAKOLI) MOHRISON MOSCOW (CP) "Religion Is said n high-placed Russian in outlining Hie many achievements of this expand- ing capital to a visiting jour- nalist. And the scores of beau- tiful old churches, many now empty and decaying, seemed to give strength to his re- mark. But on the eastern outskirts of Moscow, a brooding, an- cient city steeped in the his- tory of culture and revolt, I witnessed the continuing fer- vor of Christianity on a damp, grey Sunday morning when the poor and the old, in their dark, drab dress, gathered to bury their dead and baptise their young. It was an old church filled to overflowing. Women, old and young, chanted their prayers as their parents did before them, crowding to- wards the altar where tne bearded, robed priest led the Orthodox service. There were no seats. The congregation stood in prayer and the hint of a choir drifted from the altar. To the sides of the embel- lished interior, otters knelt and lit candles before cop- pered ikons. COFFINS LAY OPEN Funerals and baptisms were taking place almost side by side. Towards the rear ol the church coffins lay opened, the eyes of the dead seeming to search out the bundled babes held by mothers while a priest, moving from the altar, intoned the christening. At the entrance elderly women, bundled in baggy clothes against the damp and the cold, begged for alms, llwir wrinkled faces marked with tlie hardship of their Jives, Communism as seen in Moscow has two fates. One is the face of the high-rise flats, mushrooming, in many dis- tricts, the gradual increase in tlw number of cars, the new hotels for the dollar-carrying tourists, the luxury goods in many of the shop windows. The other face is that of shab- biness and poverty, the skimpy diet in a hovel that is nothing more than a slum, Mot just one church but oth- ers as well were functioning that Sunday. In one the con- gregation was so large that a .latecomer could not enter the door. In sharp contrast is the less-sombre bustle in the National language may be basic matter of survival By MORT HOSENBLUM MLACCA, Malaysia (AP) For 450 years oilier languages have almost drowned out hhe Malay tongue. Now a sign i this old colonial port urges, "Use and the Mea is catching on. Leaders are seeking to unite a polyglot society of 10 million and to bolster the Malays, a 45-per-cent plurality on the pen- insula. Racial tension threatens I continually to rupture the ve- neer of peace and prosperity, so (he question of a national lan- guage may be a basic matter of survival. Chinese, 40 per cent of the China Admittance talks grow louder UNITED NATIONS (CP) The first two days of the annual China debate in the General As- sembly have ended with corri- dor talk starting to change from speculation over "whether" Communist China will be admit- ted to "when" it will become a member. The idea of having represen- tation from two sowned repeatedly by the Na- tionalists and the Communists new life following an American speech Thursday. Canada made its expected an- nouncement Friday that it will the resolution calling for replacement of the National" Isis by the Communists. More important, it said that while It will support this year the American resolution saying that the main resolution needs a two-thirds majority of those vot- ing for passage, it cannot be counted upon to continue this practice. Canada made it clear it would not support the two-thirds vote if it ever became clear that it was being used to block the will of the 127-member assembly. The main the Albanian resolution because that country has been proposing it with others for defeated last year by a vote of 48 for, 56 against and 21 absten- tions, including Canada. The two-thirds vole resolution passed 71 to 48 with four absten- tions. MAY GET MAJORITY The Albanian resolution is ex- pected by many to receive a small majority this year. The two-thirds vote is expected to be approved by a strong majority, although it may lose a few votes from last year. United States sources did nothing Friday to dispel the im- pression left by a speech by Ambassador Christopher Phil- lips Thursday that his country is moving toward a two-China policy for the UN. Albania, generally regarded as Peking's spokesman here, re- jected the two-China policy to a speech Friday. Nationalist China did the same thing Thurs- day. Despite that, there are some here who feel a way may be found for the seating of both Chinas. Canadian Ambassador Yvon Beaulne made no mention of the Nationalists in his speech to the assembly Friday. MOVE IMPORTANT He said Canada's diplomatic recognition the Communists last month was "one of the most important developments in Canadian external relations. "We look forward especially to the day when the People's Republic of China will be seated in this assembly and in the Se- curity Council." But over the years a majority of the assembly indicated it be- lieved that the admittance of Communist China and expulsion of the Nationalists was an "im- portant ..question" requiring a two-thirds majority of those vot- ing for passage. Beautae said "on this occa- sion" Canada would again sup- port the important question res- olution. "I wish to make it clear, how- ever, that if, in our judgment, continued support of such a res- olution could in the future frus- trate the will of the General As- sembly, my government will change its position." population, are studying Malay now, some for the first time de- spite generations of residence here. So are Indian Tamils. When Britain granted inde- pendence in 1957, Malay and English were the two official languages, with English pre- dominant. A law in 1967 made Matey the official tongue tat al- lowed wide use of English. The easygoing approach ended with 1969 riots in which hundreds of Chinese and Malays lulled each other, forcing emer- gency rale oa the parliamentary democracy. With emergency powers, the largely Malay government moved to push the Malay lan- guage on a wide scale. Sfchools began a conversion, starting with the first grade. STUDENTS PROTEST The National Language Insti- tute has put out a dictionary. One effort has been to stand- ardize the language with Indo- nesian, a more sophisticated tongue developed with Malay as a base and Dutch scholarship to refine it. The enmity of Sukar- no's time is gone and leaders of both countries feel they can co- operate. Three hundred university stu- dents recently that courses are to in Eng- lish until the mid-1980s. They rampaged through the campus, tearing up English notices and defacing signs. Tunku Abdul Rahman, the former prime minister, criti- cized the action and said there remained a place for English. But many agree with the stu- dents. One of these said of an English test: "It takes a Malay student hours just trying to understand one page. We are not Eng- lish, but Malaysians, and we have our Malay students are mainly in arts and culture, and many at- tribute this to language trou- bles. Only 22 Malay students eaiiied general bachelor of sci- ence degrees this year. Non-Ma- 'lays totalled 498. Ford next on list of auto workers DETROIT (AP) With the machinery for ratifying its ten- tative settlement with General Motors Corp. in motion, the United Aiilo Workers union has taken steps toward gelling a new contract at the No. 2 auto- maker, Ford. Tlie UAW, which won a tenta- tive settlement a I CM lhat cojiM increase (he sivcryge worker's wage there above en hour, served notice lrrkby if uil! strike against Ford Molor Co. Dec. 7 unless it has a new contract in hand by then. But settlement at Ford is ex- pected lo come without a strike such as the one which has para- lysed GM for eight weeks. Board Chairman Henry Ford II said he expects the UAW and Ford will agree en a contract similar to the GM pact "with only a few technical differ- ences." resume negotiations with Ford and Chrysler Nov. day after Ore GM contract goes into effect if it is ratified by the UAW's General Motors members in the United Slates and Canada. Tlie union made no strike threat against Chrysler. Ford and Chrysler wore given strike immnnily while ihe UAW went GM as its contract target when pacts at the Big Three auto-makers expired Sept. 14. The UAW ordered all GM lo- cals to hold ratification voles and report to Detroit by next Friday. Earl Braroblelt, GM vice- president for labor relations, said he expects the new con- Iracf, if approved, to raise (he average pay of auto workers lo between and a year by 1973. Braniblett declined lo predict what effect the contract might have on new car prices. He said that was out of his area. The new contract calls for pay increases of 49 to 61 cents an hour, raising the average hourly wage to about from the present The Canadian General Motors Council of the UAW still has to work a settlement with GM Canada, but it is expected to be based largely on the American package. One of Ihe major issues to be resolved in the Canadian nego- tiations is the union's demand for full wage parity between Ca- nadian and American employ- ees of GM.

FEBVOK IS REAL "This is the new said a long-time Canadian res- ident of Moscow. Vladimir Hyich Lento, foun- der of the Communist state, fills the booksliops, Ihe shop fronts, tlie offices of Moscow. His photograph appears al- most everywhere. Ha is the most quoted of Russians, the most heroic, the most sym- bolic. You wonder if this is all a put-up job. But if you join the queus and watch the patient deter- mination of the elderly per- sons, slowly shuffling forward a few steps at a time, shuf- fling for an hour or approaching the marbled tomb, you know the fervor is real, the devotion deep and sincere. Each day delegations from faraway places, representing Communists in many parts of the world, approach Red Square bearing wreaths to be placed at the edge of the tomb. It can easily be ac- knowledged that in the eyes of many Russians, Lenin repre- sents the soul of the Soviet state. But the eyes of the Muscov- ites also wander to other at- tractions. You sense that given the encouragement, tho Soviet Union could easily be- come the world's greatest consumer market. Tlie desire for material things is great. "If 8 Russian could it, he would buy the said a widely travelled Soviet woman. LOVE THEIK BOOTS Clothes mean a great deal to many Muscovites. One Rus- sian brags that he acquires his suits in a suit. He doesn't like Soviet tailoring. Girls wear their skirts discreetly just above the knee but they love their knee-high boots. Many watch the visiting miniskirted for- eign girls with envy. The appearance of televi- sion sets, radios, record play- ers in Ihe shop windows at- tracts the pedestrians. By Western terms, prices are high and since the average Muscovite earns only about the equivalent of a week, many these electronic and other products seem just be- yond1 reach. But rent is month for a two-bedroomed working couples manage to save a few roubles each week, to buy that new electric heater or vacuum even, some day, to acquire a car. But since cars cost between and it may be years before most working couples can af- ford this luxury.

Repercussion felt over Ryerson sale TORONTO (CP) Repercus- sions from the announced sale of Ryerson Press to United Stales interests continued to be felt Friday as the former owner, the United Church of Canada, expressed hope that the governments of Ontario and Canada will take steps to ensure continued Canadian ownership of the textbook-publishing firm. Last week the church an- nounced it had agreed to sell Ryerson to McGraw-Hill Corp. of New York. Tlie price was reported to be million. In Friday developments: MacDonald, former provincial New Democratic Parly leader, suggested the On- tario government take, over Byerson and operate it as s. sort of provincial Queen's Printer. spokesman for Manitoba's department of industry and commerce said a delegation will visit Toronto next week to see if the book publishing operation of Ryerson Press is worth bidding on. United Church insisted it had informed federal Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pento months ago of the possibility that Ryerson would be sold to an American company and re- leased correspondence to that clfect. About 30 printers from the printing and bookbinding divi- sion of Ryerson Press met three Ontario cabinet ministers Fri- day in the hope of getting a government commitment Ihal (heir jobs will be secure. They left Tlie public's opposition to the sale of the 140-year-old textbook firm to an American company resulted in a meeting Tuesday between church officials and McGraw-Hill and Premier John Robarts. But no results were announced beyond a statement that another meeting will be held. The church's statement, its first since the sale, said: "It is also our hope that both federal and provincial govern- ments will now, and in the fu- ture; take more creative and vigorous action to strengthen the position of Canadian nature of broadcasting in our country and to imdergird other fields of the arte." Tlie statement, said oilers by Canadians to purchase Eyerson Press "fell far short of the worth of the firm as seen by ther McGraw-Hill company. "It is impossible of course, for a church to sustain continu- ing and heavy losses of funds contributed to it for charitable and religious purposes in order to retain possession of a com- mercial enterprise.

Dr. Joseph Tonzetich conclu- sively identified hydrogen sul- phide, which has a smell like rotten eggs, and methyl mer- captan, another sulphur com- pound with an offensive, putrid odor. He tested breath from 15 per- sons 10 to 50 years old. Their breath was passed through 24 feet of one-eighth-tubing, coated inside with a substance to regu- late the passage of compounds in the sample at different rates. As the different compounds emerged from the tube at dif- ferent time intervals they were identified and measured. Re- sults showed that every person tested had some level of the substances which caused bad breath. The levels of sulphur com- pounds built up when they didn't eat or drink and were highest immediately upon rising in the morning or before a meal. Dr. Tonzetich said it appeared the substances were formed by the putrefaction of saliva and plaque, the sticky substance which forms around the teeth, MAY SHOW DISEASE His research may lead to a new field in medicine, since mouth air is a small fraction of the air we breathe out of our bodies. He said breath-sample analysis may in some instances become as important a diagnos- tic tool as blood tests. "People with terminal cir- rhosis of the liver have very offensive breath due to high methyl mercaptan levels.
