Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta A starving child needs your help By MARGARET LUCKIIUUST HcroW Staff Writer Once again the season of Christinas has arrived with all its traditions and the abiding message of hope to all mankind. In many parts of the world today conations are such that hope is always in the long .future, never a realization of the "now." In these areas, children, the very root hope of the world, too often sicken and die from malnutrition and the debilitating diseases caused from their environment. We who have so much, know full well the disaster in the Middle East, the problems in India, the abject poverty .in Korea, but too often we feel a sense of futil- ity in knowing-just how to go about helping the unfor- tunates in these lands. For more than a quarter century now it lias been part of the 'Canadian Christmas tradition to pause in our hectic self preoccupation and give some com- passionate, constructive aid to the plight of the stricken in those lands so far away. This channel of aid has been made available through the untiring efforts of the Unitarian Service Committee of Canada. Less guilty This highly efficient humanitarian organization has made it possible for us to feel a little less guilty of the good luck of our geographical position, by asking us to share, just in some small way, with those not so lucky. And for years Canadians have been glad to respond. Through the USC thousands of little children in Korea, India and the Middle East are in better health today because of the food, the health care, the teaching and training, made possible by Canadian support. For many years now, southern Albertans have taken a pride and a personal interest in the USC "Cup of Milk" campaign, for milk is one of the most urgently needed sources of nourishment to build healthy young bodies. Last year, through this campaign which is sponsor- ed annually by The Herald, Lethbridge and its environs were asked to raise which1 would supply over one million cups of milk in impoverished countries. Tills was over-subscribed by nearly Need is great This year the need is equally as great as previous years for the USC has expanded its field of aid: to in- clude war-torn Vietnam. With this in mind, and knowing the generosity of southern Albertans, the USC and The Herald are aiming at an objective of We are quite convinced this too, lull be surpassed. Tins amount will deliver over tliree carloads of sldm milk to hungry children with empty cups. Contributions can start immediately and may ba sent to the Cup of Milk Fund, Lethbridge Herald. Cheques may be made out to the Unitarian Service Committee and also sent to The Herald. The Herald will issue temporary receipts and publish a list of dona- tions daily. Official receipts for income tax deduction will be forwarded in due course by the USC. With inflation and unemployment on everyone's mind tliis past year, many Canadians and some Alber- tans, feel they've had it somewhat rough. But our crops were bountiful, our homes are warm, and our children healthy and well fed. And when our cups are empty, they soon overflow. Police hold ex-city man J DR. GLEN STEWART VANCOUVER (CP) A Canadian doctor question-, ed in San Francisco this week in connection with the murder of a Vancouver Island Bible camp caretaker and the disappearance of a northern British Columbia housewife returned here Friday night in RCMP cus- tody.

An estimated persons watched ths banr1- overcast skies. and floats under witness Grey Cup parade TORONTO (CP) An esti- mated persons .lined downtown streets in overcast weather today to catch a glimpse of the biggest Grey Cup parade ever to move through the city. Contrary to Friday night when 150 arrests were made, the 500 police called out for the occasion today had no troubles controlling crowds. The route of the parade was crammed with real and artifi- cial Quebeckers and westerners decked out in colorful toques and shiny 'white., cowboy hats, -depending whether they, were pulling for .Montreal Alouettes or Calgary Stampeders, the two contestants in the game later today. There was continuous clap- ping and shouting at the bands and banton twirlers but the crowd broke, out in roars when the mayors of Montreal and Calgary and the floats repre- senting their cities moved past. 26 BANDS MARCH The parade was led by a clown from Brockville, Ont, pushing a baby carriage with a live chicken in it. Following him were 26 bands interspersed with majorettes and floats from cities, clubs and industries. Honorary parade marshal was Anne Murray, a willowy blonde physical education teacher from Springhill, N.S., who has become a singing star. Following her were the nine Iviiss Grey Cup candidates, led by winner Nancy Durrell of the Alouettes. Toronto Mayor William Den- n'ison and other dignitaries looked at the parade from a re- viewing stand. Thousands jammed office windows along the route. Friday night, just before fes- tivities reached the peak, police sealed off the Royal York Hotel after it became jammed to ca- pacity with revellers. About 100 police were stationed at all entrances, admitting only key or ticket holders to scheduled functions. At the Grey Cup The day after the night before J ennuis, popcorn, t TORONTO (CP) The morning of the Grey Cup game was also the morning after for thousands of revell- ers. There was a drizzle at dawn and waking up was painful. Friday night was wild in downtown Toronto, and wild- est of all at the Royal York Hotel, the unofficial headquar- ters for the Grey Cup drinking championship. A western band had the whole lobby doing do si dos. Montreal Mayor Jean Drap- eau won over file clapping on- lookers on the mezzanine by donning a cowboy hat and belting out Alouette. Earlier he and Ontario Pre- mier John Robarts joined a conga line with the Miss Grey Cup contestants invita- tion-only buffet sponsored by the Ontario government. Elsewhere in the hotel an- other Montreal envoy, Miss Alouette, wept for joy as she was chosen Miss Grey Cup over representatives of the eight other Canadian -Football League teams. Saskatchewan Rougftrider quarterback Ron Lancaster, chosen best player in the league, presented 21-year-old Nancy Dim-ell with the tradi- tional bouquet of roses and then offered his handkerchief. She continued to sob, unable to speak. Runners-up wera Miss Edmonton Eskimo, Anita Urschcl. and Miss Ham- ilton Tiger-Cat, Umla Kndi- cott. Police cordoned off stairs an delevator.s in an attempt fo confine to the lobby anyone without a room key or an invi- tation to the upstairs events. But some enterprising mer- rymakers formed human lad- ders and crawled up lo the mezzanine and escaped into the upstairs corridors. Outside, it was mild enough (or coDvcrtibla tops to bs down and fans jumped willy nilly into passing cars along Front Street, clogged with cars and reeling revellers at 2 a.m. Calgary Stampeders but- tons, many worn by young To- r o n t o n i a n s, outnumbered those boosting tile rival Al- ouettes. LITTER ON EOADS The roadways were littered with broken bottles and squashed beer cans; a City of Toronto truck stood poised iu front of the Royal York with a load of litterbasfcets to rein- force the shell-shocked regu- lars. Downtown pubs and taverns were jammed till closing time. Many had off-duty po- licemen at the doors to con- trol crowds. One hotel served beer in plastic glasses which bounce rather than break. The celebrating stopped ab- ruptly for some when some revellers were hauled off to Jail. Police said "at least SO to 60" were arrested1 on charges ranging from assault to breaches of the peace, drun- kenness or other breaches of the Liquor Control Act. For others the comedown was more gradual, but it is doubtful they felt much better this morning. Fans who couldn't find accommodation or couldn't make it home were sleeping it off in door- ways, or in hotel lobbies.

(The latest statistics place persons on the unem- ployed rolls resulting in a sea- sonally adjusted rate of 6.8 per The new plan also will pump extra government contribution into regional pockets of high unemployment. "When OK regional rale is over 4 per cent, and exceeds the national rate by more than 1 per cent, the government, as well as paying the costs men- tioned above, will assume tha resposisbility for up to 18 addi- tional weeks" of benefits. This will extend the maxi- mum benefit period from 33 weeks to 51 in the bad pockets. On the basis of current un- employment ratios, B.C. and Quebec, with 8.8 per cent rates, and the Atlantic region with 7.6 per cent, would qualify for the special assistance. Ontario with 4.6 per cent and tlie Prairie region with 5.7 per cent are below the national 6.6 per cent seasonally adjusted unemployment rate."
