Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 19, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 25 #';::x:x:x:x::: x*x * 'X-x-x*. >&X;. / x&x&x: *. o ;x-.; ? x*x �vW*K':*:,:x%:x:i Prince Charles, perhaps the world's most eligible bachelor, has reached 22 years of age without a whisper of romance in his life. Britain's future king has a way with the girls but if he has his eyes on one, it is one of the best-kept royal secrets. The ever - obliging matchmakers haven't been able to scrape up a tidbit of gossip linking Charles with a potential girl friend. One columnist's suggestion that United States President Nixon's daughter Tricia was in the field was quickly squelched. A favorite dancing companion at some royal affairs had been Lucia Santa Cruz, strikingly beautiful brunette daugh- ./mm PRINCE CHARLES ... no girl friend ter of the Just - resigned Chilean ambassador. But she's 27 and his known meetings with her have been mostly at formal occasions. When the prince goes on the town with a girl - to the theatre or dinner - it's usually in a foursome with his 20-year-old sister Princess Anne and her escort. Charles has frankly discussed the marriage problem of a Prince of Wales and admitted: Saw 102 bodies on trails FORT BENNING, Ga. (AP) - A former artillery officer attached to Lieut. William Cal-ley's company the day it swept through the south Vietnamese village of My Lai says he saw bodies on village trails several hours after the sweep. The former officer, Roger Alaux, testified for the prosecution yesterday as it began presenting the government's case against Galley, being court martialled on charges he murdered 102 civilians the day of the sweep, March 16, 1968. Alaux, now a student at Arizona State University, said that about three hours after helicopters landed Calley's platoon at My Lai he saw a group of bodies on a north-south village trail and a child's body on an east-west trail "I estimate in the vicinity of eight to 12," Alaux said. "There could have been more or less. They were male and female, possibly young children. I do not recall." ASKS FOR PLEA Before testimony began, the military judge, Col. Reid Kennedy, asked the 27-year-old Cal-ley how he pleaded. "I plead not guilty," he said. If convicted, the infantry lieutenant could be sentenced to death by a firing squad or hanging, or be setnenced to life imprisonment. In his opening statement, the prosecutor told the jury of six officers that the government intends to prove that Calley ordered his platoon at My Lai, "Kill 'em, waste 'em," and then executed 102 unresisting and unarmed men, women and chil-drn, Daniel said the villagers-women, children and unarmed old men-were rounded up by the platoon and taken to a trail "It's awfully difficult, because you've got to remember that when you marry, in my position, you are going to marry somebody who perhaps one day is going to become queen." This means, he told an interviewer, she has to be "somebody pretty special, and the one advantage about marrying a princess, for instance, or somebody from a royal family, is that they do know what happens." *  * Princess Dina Abdnl Hamid, former wife of King Hussein of Jordan, has married a Palestinian commando, the authoritative newspaper Al Ahram reported at Cairo. In a dispatch from Amman, Al Ahram quoted sources close to the Al Fatah guerrilla group as saying the marriage took place secretly last month. It identified the husband as Asaad Abdel Rahman, code - named Salah by bis guerrilla associates. The newspaper said Dina obtained Hussein's permission and also consulted Alia, her 15-year-old daughter by the Jordanian monarch, before going through with the marriage. Alia is studying at a girl's college in Britain. Al Ahram said Dina met Rahman in London. Dina, 36, a former Cairo University professor, married Hussein in 1955. They were divorced after two years. The reported reason was the couple's inability to have a male heir to the throne. Hussein now is married to British - born Princess Muna. * * * Former track star Brace Kidd was nominated as the New Democratic Party candi' date for Toronto Beaches-Woodbine in the next provincial election. Mr. Kidd, now a writer-broadcaster, columnist for Canadian. Dimension magazine and a lecturer at the University of Toronto, is a member of the NDP's radical Waffle Group. He resigned as secretary of the Ontario government's treasury board in September to seek the nomination. *   A Hong Kong newspaper reports Communist China's ambassador to Canada may be career diplomat Huang Hua. The anti-Communist newspaper Ming Pao, without identifying its sources, said Huang Hua is the strongest candidate for the post. Huang Hua's last post outside China was ambassador to Egypt. He was recalled to Peking last year to become an official of the Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries. * * * A New York socialite and the heir to a French electronics fortune were married at the 6,000 foot level of the Fitzsim-mons Glacier near Alta Lake, about 75 miles north of Vancouver. Margaret Baird and Pierre Guy Merlin and their 15 wedding guests were transported to the wedding scene at Singing Pass by helicopter. Miss Baird said the couple discovered the Pass while lost on a hiking trip during the summer and chose it as the site for their wedding because "it seemed a little more sacred to us" than an unfamiliar parish church. The bride, known professionally as Peggy Baird, is the associate producer of the NBC television show Jeopardy. Bill gets opposition off hook CALGARY (CP) - Temporary legislation now before the House of Commons to replace the regulations of the War Measures Act was mainly designed to give the opposition "an opportunity to get off the hook," says Liberal MP Pat Ma-honey. "This piece of legislation changes the emergency regulations in only two minor parts," the Calgary South member told a meeting here. "We were in the situation where Parliament was divided in a state of crisis because some opposition members were committed to exposing the provisions of the War Measures Act." The New Democratic Party stood opposed to implementation of the act but four MPs broke pary ranks to support the government, Mr. Mahoney said. The Progressive Conservative party was hesitant about supporting the move but backed the government when alternate legislation was promised, ion was promised. He said both parties endorsed the emergency legislation now before the house in principle, FIRST ENTRY The first copyright entry in the United States was The Philadelphia Spelling Book registered in 1790 by John Barry in the United States district court of Pennsylvania.

Indefinite term TABER (HNS) - Members of Taber's industrial development commission may now hold office for an indefinite term. On the recommendation of commission representative Elmer C. Conrad, the town council rescinded a section of the relative bylaw which limited terms of office of members to three successive one - year terms. Mr. Conrad said it; would be advantageous for members who have served well and are willing to continue should have the opportunity to continue on the commission. Council concurred. New attempt to settle phone rift EDMONTON (CP) - A new attempt will be made to negotiate a settlement of the conflict between Alberta Government Telephones and Edmonton Telephones, city council announced yesterday. The council named Mayor Ivor Dent and Aldermen Ken Newman, Neil Crowford and Terry Nugent as a negotiation team to meet a cabinet committee in an attempt t settle which telephone company will serve new areas annexed to Edmonton. Mayor Dent said neither side should set conditions as a basis for negotiations. The heart of the dispute is a 1963 agreement signed by the city and the province which gives AGT the right to serve all the area not included in the city boundaries at that time. The city now says that the agreement is invalid and argues that Edmonton Telephones should have the right to serve all the area within the expanding city boundaries.
