Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Low tonight 10 High Tuesday 40 The Lethkidge Herald RIGHT CN TARGET FOR 1975 VOL. LXV No. 289 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 20 PAGES CELEBRATION Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip pose with their children at Buckingham Palace today during festivities to mark the Royal Couple's silver anniversary. Left to right are Prince Charles, the prince of Wales; Prince Ed- ward, the Queen, 46; Prince Philip, 51; Prince Andrew and Piincess Anne. 25 years ago today Elizabeth married Philip LONDON (AP) Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were deluged with congratulatory mail today, their 25th wedding anniversary, then prayed at a West- minster Abbey thanksgiving ceremony that brought Lon- don its biggest display of royal pageantry in almost 20 years. Church bells pealed, flags unfurled across Britain and crowds flocked to central London, under partly cloudy skies, as the royal couple marked a day of non-stop celebrations from breakfast to a midnight party. London had not seen such a party show since the Queen's coronation in 1953. The Queen and her husband began the day by opening gifts from their family. Buckingham Palace said thousands of congratula- tory cables and letters from throughout the world had flooded into the royal household by breakfast time. Then the 46-year old monarch was joined by her husband arid youngest son, eight-year-old Prince Ed- ward, in a limousine for a short drive to Westminster Abbey where she was married in 1947. A fanfare of trumpets greeted the royal party at the abbey. Prince Philip, 51, strode beside his wife down the aisle of the abbey. They were followed by heir to the throne, Prince Charles, who sported a giant red carnation in the lapel of his morning suit. Princess Anne, in a bright fuschia-printed coal and dress and wearing a large pill-box hat of plain silk with a cascade of feathers, walked beside her brother. She seemed unmindful of the headlines in the Lon- don newspapers, announcing that she had broken an unwritten royal taboo, gone fox hunting, and upset ani- mal protection societies. The Queen's younger clu'ldren, also in lounge suits, followed Anne and Charles. At the 45-minute service were 100 couples married on the same day in 1947. Fourteen members of Eu- rope's royal families were also there. The story leaked out that 22-year-old Princess Ajine went fox hunting eight days ago in Yorkshire. The League Against Cruel Sports said she was "setting a deplorable example." The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, of which both the Queen and Queen Mother Kli7.ahclh are patrons, said it was "implacably opposed to fox hunting; it doesn't matter if Princess Anno or anyone else Likes part." The silver jubilee was planned as a mixture of pomp, pageantry and informality, with the royal couple taking their first walkabout among the ordinary people of Britain. Prince Charles and Princess Anne invited several hundred friends of the Royal Family to Buckingham Palace tonight for a dinner dance in honor of their parents. Modification song] of peace agreement From PARIS (CP) Henry Kissin- ger resumed his secret psace negotiations with Hanoi's Le Due Tho in Paris today amid indications that their govern- ments are determined to sesk a quick settlement. The U.S. presidential envoy who flew he're Sunday night said on arrival that if the North Vietnamese negotiators showed the same spirit of under- standing and flexibility which resulted in last month's nine- point draft agreement, "a rapid settlement of the wrar is prob- able." U.S. officials hope that North Vietnam will agree to modify Vietnam peace terms to make them more acceptable to the Saigon government which so far has hinted that it would not be bound by any agreement signed without its consent. Tho's negotiating team, how- ever, is expected to insist that there be no major modification of the nine-point agreement an- nounced by Hanoi on Oct. 2G. Kissinger, on his 21st trip to Paris for talks with Tho since Still missing YELLOWKNIFE, N. W. T. (CP) Canadian Forces air- craf. searching for a twin-engine plane missing en an arctic mercy mission continued to get a break from the weather to- day, but failed to report any signs of the plane or its four occupants. the two men first met in Au- gust, 1969, is reported to be seeking modifications in the draft peace agreement dealing with a three-segment adminis- trative body which will make preparations for South Viet- nam's political future. Kissinger will insist that the agreement make clear that the administrative body, of which the Viet Cong will form part, cannot be viewed as a coalition government pending elections, well-informed sources said. Under the terms of the tenta- tive peace agreement reached last month, North Vietnamese forces would remain in South Vietnam to preserve the terri- tory now controlled by the Viet Cong. But Saigon wants these troops to be withdrawn gradually once a ceasefire takes effect. Kissinger also will seek North Vietnam's agreement that an international peace force be sent to South Vietnam once a ceasefire begins. Canada, Hun- gary, Poland and Indonesia have been to send troops to the proposed peace- keeping force. Provincial governments divided at tri-level meet By BOB DOUGLAS TORONTO (CP) A divided provincial delegation is re- ported to be facing united fed- eral and municipal groups at the first tri-level conference on urban affairs which opened here today. Sources said Sunday the pro- vincial position, prepared by an Ontario government team, has not obtained unanimous support from all provicial govern- ments. Manitoba is not endorsing the provincial stand, these sources said. It is also understood that the Atlantic provinces are con- sidering a separate brief on some aspects of the provincial position. While details of the dis- agreement were not revealed, it was hinted that the brief pre- pared by Ontario takes a nega- tive stand on continuing con- sultation among the three levels of goverment. Main purpose of the confer- ence is to establish machinery for permanent consultation on urban matters between federal, provincial and municipal gav- erments. The very fact that the three levels of government are meet- ing together at all is regarded as a major advance by confer- ence organizers. Mayor D. G. Newman of Whitby, Ont, chairman of the municipal delegation, said Sun- day: "We really lead the world at this point." See other story Page 19. IRA denounces arrest of chief as collusion From DUBLIN (CP) The Provi- sional wing of the Irish Republi- can Army is calling for "a wave of protest" in the United Stales, Britain and Ireland against (lie nrrest by the Irish government of the Proves' chief of staff, Sean MacStiofain. The Provisionals' political arm, Sinn Fein, said MacStio- fain's arrest in Dublin Sunday was an "act of collaboration" with the British Army, "calcu- lated to give aid and comfort to the forces of British imperial- ism in Ireland." MacStiofain is believed to be the mastermind of the IRA's campaign of violence in North- ern Ireland, which is aimed at uniting the province with the Irish republic. The Dublin government has been reluctant to crack down on IRA leaders because of their grass-roots support in the re- public. But in recent months the government pushed a Special Powers Act through Parliament to bring IRA men to trial with- out jury and several other ter- rorist leaders have been ar- rested. British officials in Northern Ireland welcomed the arrest. But or.e source said the republic has arrested IRA leaders in the past and then released them after a short stay in jail. MacStiofain was arrested shortly after recording an inter- view broadcast later by the state radio network. He said the Provisionals' guerrilla cam- paign in Northern Ireland would continue, and he called for an all-Ireland conference on the Ulster crisis. 4Harry Truman didn't want to be VP NEW YORK API-Harry S.

FOR COALITION CLEAR MAJORITY Brandt coasts to easy victory NEW YORK TIMES SERVICE BONN West Germans gave Chancellor Willy Brandt's coalition government a resounding vote of confidence Sunday with 54 per cent of the total in federal elections. The chancellor's own Social Democatic party won 46 per cent, topping the con- servative opposition for the first time since the federal republic was founded in 1949. The Free Democrats, Brandt's partners in the governing coalition and repres- ented in it by Foreign Minister Walter Scheel, won eight per cent. Tlia too parties had formed their coalition in 1969, with a narrow majority that was erased by defections last sprig. But Braidt and Scheel swore to stick together and were rewarded yesterday in By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS for treaties what was, by German stand- ards, a landslide. The coalition leaders appear to have a comfortable majority, with at least 272 seats in the 496-member lower house of par- liament. The opposition Conser- vatives will have 224 deputies. Brandt's opponent, R a i n e r Barzel, who represents the Christian Democratic Un- ion and its Bavarian affiliate, the Christian social union, con- ceded the election about an hour after polls closed. Mr. Brandt went before re- porters and television cameras to say that. "It is not a mo- ment cf triumph, but a moving moment cf satisfaction and he said. Scheel, said that "the voters kept a clear head against an unheard-of flood of propagan- da" from the opposition. It was in large measure a personal victory for the chan- cellor, who will be 59 years old next month. His campaign, in which he covered miles by train and miles by plane, was unparalleled in in- tensity here and, in the view of his c a m p a i g n managers, he won it on the strength of his "credibility." "He was what he said, the 'chancellor of said Jochen Schulz, Brandt's party spokesman. "That and his appeal to the electorate to be a people capable of the qual- ity cf mercy won it for him." The sweep by the Social Democrats covered metropoli- tan and rural areas, but was concentrated more in Protes- tant north Germany than in the Catholic regions of the south. The Social Democrats car- ried the SAAR and Lower Sax- ony for the first time and they got their best ever vole in the Rhineland-Palatinate with over 47 per cent, beating the Con- servatives for the first time there, too. The only areas where the Conservatives held their ground were in Bavaria and Baden- Wurttemberg. The Christian So- cial Union of Franz Josef Strauss, the Bavarian sister party of Barzel's Christian Democratic Union, polling 55 per cent, bettered its 19S9 show- ing by almost one percentage point. In Baden Wurttemberg the Conservatives got almost 50 per cent. Strauss. 57, called the election "extraordinarily and although he gave assurances that there would IM no imme- diate consequences in the lead- ership of the Conservative camp, it appeared that his Ba- varian party w o u 1 d have more to say in the future of the Christian Union alliance. Late last week Strauss had Indicated that in the event of a loss there would be "grave dis- cussions" about who would run the Conservatives from now on, hinting that he might, himself he the chancellor in 1976. The election confirmed the demise of the extreme right- wing National Democratic party, once r e g a rded as the omen of a Fascist revival. It scored only 0.4 per cent of the total poll, computer projec- tions said.

Governments in Eastern and Western Europe joined in praise Sunday night of Chancellor Willy Brandt's decisive victory in the West German elections. East Germany hailed Brandt's re-election as a con- firmation of his Ostpolitik, or policy of reducing tensions with the Soviet bloc. The East German news agency ADN said: "The way now is cleared for the signing and ratification of the treaty on basic relations between West Germany and East Germany." Moscow radio reported the election results without com- ment, but commentaries in the state-controlled press prior to the vote had made no secret of the Kremlin's preference for Brandt over his opponent, Rainer Barzel. HEATH IS HAPPY Prime Minister Edward Heath of Britain was reported gratified by what he considered an indication of stability in West German politics at a time when Britain is about to enter the European Common Market. He also was reported delighted at the victory of Brandt as a personal friend. Foreign Minister Knud B. An- dersen of Denmark received the election news with "great pleas- ure" and said it gave him "a feeling of security" to know that Brandt will continue at the helm as West Germany pro- ceeded with its policy of norma- lizing relations with Eastern Europe. In a radio statement, Ander- sen also indicated that Den- mark might recognize East Germany before the end of the year. There was no immediate gov- ernment reaction from Paris, but French officials had made clear they were looking forward to a Brandt victory. In Washington, United States officials declined comment. OTTAWA (CP) Canadian government officials were pleased today with the re-elec- tion of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt. Sources recalled that Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp has said publicly several times that Canada supports Mr. Brandt's attempts at detente in Europe. They said Mr. Brandt's re- election with a comfortable ma- jority is evidence that the West German people support the chancellor's policies. Civil servants join labor group CALGARY (CP) -The Civil Service Association of Alberta has decided to join the Cana- dian Labor Congress, a move hailed by a labor spokesman as the first step in a nation- wide movement. About 200 delegates at the as- sociation's annual convention here told their executive "to lake the necessary steps to af- filiate" with the CLC, after de- feating a motion to hold a mem- bership referendum on the question. CLC organizer Gordon .Mc- Caffrey of Calgary called the decision "an historic move- ment" that would lead to the eventual inclusion of all provin- cial civil service associations in Canada. He added that Sas- katchewan. Nova Scotia and Newfoundland civil sen-ants will soon follow Alberta's lead. The 1970s will be "the dec- ade of the public employees." he said, adding the congress has committed million to organ- izing "white collar workers" in the next three years. Alberta civil servants now have no machinery that could lead to strike action. They and the provincial government have the option of binding arbitra- tion should contract negotia- tions be deadlocked. The association's biggest task now is to convince rank and file members to support the CLC affiliation. One local branch went on record Satur- day as opposing the move. The convention also passed a resolution that would give em- ployees at the lower end of the pay scale the largest salary in- creases, if the government agrees. PRISONERS ARE FORCED TO END JAIL SIT-IN KINGSTON, Ont. (CD A five-day, sit-down protest by prisoners at Joyceville in- stitution ended today when guards forced the men back into their cells. Warden C. W. Chitty said the decision was taken to end the protest because security facil- ities were being tampered with by some prisoners. He said there was no resist atice by prisoners who were back in their cells by a.m. The sit-down began last Tues- day night when prisoners re- fused to return to their cells or resume work duties. They re- mained in large, scaled off range areas. The demonstration was to protest the cancellation of a six- month experiment to permit visits among prisoners. Warden Chitty said some pris- oners were tampering with the range doors which placed the .safety of the public, non-in- volved prisoners mid the in- stitution in jeopardy. In n news release Sunday, prisoners said the caucclMol of the open-door policy "greatly retards an inmate's opportunity for rehabilitation." Prison officials said the ex- periment "generally lessened security'" at the institution, al- though no specific regulations were violated. door? alhd ;
