Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tueiday, Novimber 28, 1973 The new cabinet The cabinet changes announced by Jlr. Tmdeau Monday are of less significance than had been expected. Eight new ministers were brought in to fill places lost through retirement or election defeat. Of the other 22, twelve were left unchanged. The biggest challenge, for the new- comers, goes lo Marc Lalonde, for- merly Mr. Trudeau's chief secretary. As minister of health and welfare he will be in a sensitive and vulnerable post, but his immense capacity for tact and good judgment will cany him through- It is good lo have a capable wo- man back in the cabinet. As minis- ter of science Mrs. Sauve will have to create most of her own opportuni- ties. Robert Andvas, only a few months in consumer and corporate affairs, goes to the cabinet chair vacated by Mr. Mackasey. It is one of the hotter and may require all of Mr. Andras' considerable talents for both decision and diplomacy. Jean-Luc Pepin, in industry, trade and commerce, was popular every- where except in his own constitu- ency, and lo fill lhal very senior posi- lion Mr. Trudeau picked Alastair Gillespie, former science minister. This is one of the biggest promotions in (he cabinet shuffle. Jean Marchand, in one of the most controversial departments, regional economic expansion, trades places with Don Jamieson, formerly o{ transport Mr. Jamieson will need the more luck. In taking over defence, Jim Rich- ardson's load is increased. He proved his mastery of politics in the recent election, winning one of the only four liberal seals on the Prairies. There is reassurance in Mr. Turn- er retaining finance and Mr. Sharp external affairs. are giants Both are widely respected. A good deal of undeserved criticism has fallen upon Jean Chretien, minis- ter of Indian affairs and northern de- velopment. II would have been easy for Mr. Trudeau lo move him else- where and politically perhaps he should have. It is now Mr. Chrelien's duty lo the government to improve his own public relations. What of agriculture? Tradilionally tin's goes to a prairie member. The only one available was Otto Lang, who continues as justice minister as well as in of the wheat board. An Ontario fanner, Eugene Whalen, takes over agriculture. His potential is unknown. Not at all helpful was the reaction of the Conservative house leader. Ged Baldwin, to Ihe cabinet changes. "Top-heavy with Quebec minis- he said. Typical anti-French bigotry! Compared with population, Quebec is not over-represented. And compared with strength in the Lib- eral caucus, Quebec is grossly under- represented. Of the new agriculture minister, Mr. Baldwin says the appointment is nothing but bad news for e West. The minister is "absolutely lacking in the knowledge of Western prob- lems." Whose fault? Mr. Trudeau had a good agriculture minister, a Western farmer, and he was thrown out by his consliluenls. The Western voters decided that there could not be a Westerner as minister of agri- culture. So be it. Avoid drugs in pregnancy Again a warning has been issued against taking drugs during preg- nancy unless they are absolutely nec- essary. A British doctor has stated that the number of drugs possible of caus- ing birth abnormalities during preg- nancy have increased to 40 -with evi- dence of such resulting abnormal- ities as cleft palate, deafness, blind- ness and limb deformities. Few if any of the listed 40 drugs would be prescribed for preg n a n t women but the danger lies in unsus- pecting women taking unprescribed drugs "off the shelf" during preg- nancy. Professor R. S. Illingworth of the department of child health at Shef- field's Children's Hospital, has point- ed out that a United States study has shown that the average number of drugs taken by women in a three-to- nine-week period of pregnancy was 8.7 each and that 80 per cent of these drugs were taken without medical ad- vice. Even aspirin may affect the foe- tus. Professor lllingworth's warning co- incides with Ihe current uproar in Britain following the news release by the Sunday Times that most of the country's 400 thalidomide children, many of whom are limbless, had re- ceived no compensation and in some cases the parents were facing finan- cial disaster. The result of the news story has suddenly transformed these unfortunate children from forgotten cripples into Britain's number one so- cial issue. A congenital abnormality is com- monly the end result of a variety of factors, genetic and intra-uterine, and a drug taken at the critical time in pregnancy may tip the scale and lead to a foetal defect. A pregnant woman should take a medicine in pregnancy only when it is absolutely necessary that is rarely. First love WASHINGTON The subject of sex In marriage is no longer taboo, and more and more Institutes have been set up to help married couples find sexual happiness to- gether. Dr. Henrico Belladonna, who runs the Clinic of Marital Bliss in Spring Valley, told me, "One of the big discoveries we psychologists have made is that not all sexual problems in today's marriages can be attributed to fear. Our studies indicate that fear now ranks only second as a rea- son for sexual hang-ups." "What is No. I asked. "I'll show he said. "I have a couple coming in now. Why don't you go over and sil in that chair and observe what hap- pens." A man and wife entered nervously and the doctor asked them to be seated. Dr. Belladonna waited for them lo say something. Finally Ihe husband spoke up. "Doctor, we've come to your institute as a last resort. Our sex life seems to on the rocks and we don't know what to do about it." Dr. Belladonna said, "I would like to ask you a few questions. How often do you have relations each the wife said. Dr. Belladonna asked. "II isn't thai we don'L want the hus- band said. "It's just thnt we don'l seem to have the lime any more." "I said Dr. nclladtmnn. "Well, let's look into that. What's wrong with Monday said the husband, "we cnn'l do 11 on Mondays. That's the .ABC Football Game, of the Week. It's never over until midnight." "You prefer watching football to making Dr. Belladonna asked. "That's stupid the husband said angrily, "doesn't "N'ol Dr. Belladonna said. "Don't you find it strange that you prefer Howard Cosell to your own "Are you trying to say I have homosex- ual the husband yelled. "I didn't say that at Dr. Belladonna replied. "But it is true you'd rather watch 22 men knock each other down for three hours than make love to your wife." "You're twisting things the husband said. "I can make love lo my wife any time, but how often can I see a good football "All right, let's forget about Dr. Belladonna said. "What about Tuesday "There's basketball to walch on Tuesday nighl. You want me to give up basketball, "I don't want you to give up anything. What about Wednesday "He has hockey on Wednesday the wife said. "And Thursdays? Do you have anything to walch on Thursday Dr. Bella- donna nsked. said Ihe husband. "Bui I'm prelly tired from slaying up late on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. A guy has lo rest sometime." Dr. Belladonna asked. "Friday is another basketball the husband said. "And Snlurday night I like lo gel lo iKd early so I can walch tho TV football games on Sunday afternoon." said Dr. Belladonna, "that seems lo lake care of Ihc week." "Can you help us, the wife ask- ed. "II moans a lol lo Ihe husband said. "We're willing lo do anything lo find happi- ness logclhcr."

L. Sulzbcrger, New York Times commentator BERLIN Erich Honecker, tha Communist leader of East Germany, declared last Wed- nesday that "history has al- ready made the in fa- vor of two separate German states rather than a united one. In an interv i ew, Honecker added that it "is an advantage to the world to see two sover- eign states on German soil." Furthermore, he said, the Ber- lin wall and the heavily fenced frontier must be regarded as "existing realities." He also said that his govern- ment had already had unoffi- cial contacts with Washington on the subject of exchanging dinlomatie recognition. He add- ed that Gerhard Beil, state sec- retary for foreign trade, was in the United States, where he has submitted "concrete proposals fo1" increasing trade Honecker, first secretary of the East German Communist party warned West Germany to refrain "from interfering in the internal affairs of the German Democratic Republic" but fore- saw improved relations. He said he thought the European secur- ity conference in which Iralh Germanys are to participate "will help to prevent the dis- aster of a third world war." The East German leader ex- pressed readiness to "extend economic and cultural relations and also to establish diplomatic relations" with the U.S. and oth- er Western countries, and he f'jrc-aw both Germanys joining Ire United Nations soon. Asked if he thought that at some dis- tant date Germany might again ba reunified, he replied through an interpreter: "As far as I can see this aueslion does not arise at all. The GDR will continue to de- veloo on a socialist basis as an irreparable part of the Socialist coromur.ilv. On (he oilier hand, not onlv the present Bonn gov- ernment but its oopos i t i on stresses the need for basing West relations' on the Western alliance. "We think that on tins issue history has alreadv made the decision. And we think this is an advantage to the world lo see independent, sovereign states on German soil. Honecker, who is colloquially Imo-yn as Grosser the Chief succeeded Wal- ter Ulbricht last year as the renl power here. The interview was described hv Honecker as his first with a Western mvsman. On the subject of the German future, he predicted that an "ex- change of permanent represen- tatives between the two Ger- man states will he advantage- ous for the European climate." But asked If some form of confederation might ultimately be envisioned, he was negative, Anart from his reieclion of re- unification, he said he thought human relationships between the two countries were Imnrov- Ing. Together, he exnlained, the four power accord on Berlin and the agreement between the two Ge-manys. both completed this fall, "have created good conditions for visitinc (he Ger- man democratic republic from the West." Honecker sixike at length on the subiect of ideolo- gical differences even while government lo-government re- lations iirrorove. A useful de- tente will be continued and ex- panded under the newlv re- dacted Brandt government in Bonn, he said, and this reins achieve the necessary noal of co-existence between states. However, he ndHed. that he onrld see "no nossib'Htv of ideo- logical since the tv-o svstems a--e based on "lo- tallv diTerent fundamental prin- CJnIiv: "We strive for the power of the workers and the oeasants and die development of a truly s o c 1 e I, y." Honecker said. "On this Issue Brandt's SocH Deme.nrafi'' Party a totfllv onnosite view and this will continue." Brandt's strength soars By Joseph Kralt, U.S. syndicated commentator BONN The West Germans voled to accept the hard reality of peace at a price. They voted to reject freeloa.iing jingoism. In the process, they pulled off what is probablv the most honc- ful election in Europe since the The best way lo see whal happened in Ihe election is lo measure how much the Social Democrats achieved with how little. The Socialists entered the bat- tle agaiasl Ihe mighty Christian Democratic Union with onlv one asset the issue of peace. In the past three years, the Socialists have negotiated trea- ties with Russia, Poland and East Germany. Those treaties- comprising Ihc so called Ost- polilik or Eastern policy ral- ifv Ihe present borders of West Gormany, reaffirm the status of West Berlin and provide lor more communication between Ihc stales of Kasl and West Germany. Thev write an end to Hie Second World War, and Ihcy truly do constitute a pence policy. But Ihe treaties are highly vulnerable lo nn.Lionnlis.lic at- tack. They concede what used to ho former German territory to the Commiinisl regimes of Russia and Poland. They nc- ropl the division of Germany into two states ono of Ilioin Commiinisl East Germany. The Christian Dcmocr a I i c leader Raincr and his Bavarian lieutenant, Franz-Jo- sef Elrauss, worked slead i I y p.l underlining the concessions in the treaty. In no uncertain terms thcv intimated that the Christian Democrats, if brought hack lo power, would amend tho afrrccmerls lo eliminate the cffi-nding parts. Apart from this uncertain issue, moreover, the So- cialists had nr.lhinn; going for them. Chancellor Brandt, pre- ocmip'ed with Oslpolitik, had de- faulted on rll his proposals for domestic reform. lie had lost by resignation Iv.'o finance ministers in n row, including Ihe prestigious Karl Schiller.

To lie sure, tho Chancellor is n far more popular man than Ihc CDU leader, llcrr Baiv.el, but Ihc Chanco.llor has become nppcaling chiefly as a bencvol- cnl man of peace. Even so, Horn Brandt Is n curiously aloof man, with an ambiguous lie has m.lhipif! like Ihc kind of adoring following thai Ilcrr Darzcl's lieutenant.

The stark, unambiguous les- son of all this Is Iliat the West Germans have finallv scltlerl into place. The mniorlly here is no longer casl ndrifl. ready lo be driven by gusl.s of destruc- tive nationalism. In c o n s c- qucncc, Chancellor Brandt nov emerges as tho .strongest lend- er outside Russia nnd the Unl- In.-l Slates, and he Is due lo a role lhal will affect even the superpowers. Letters Alarmed by bill of rights I view with alarm the im- plied motives of the Alberta Bill of Rights. It will deprive the Individual of his inalienable rights. Indiv- iduals have more rights when they are not guaranteed, because a government can't guarantee anything unless It enacts more controls and regu- lations which in turn deprive freedom. When a government accepts full responsibility for the wel- fare of the people, it discharges that responsibility by assuming control of their activities and thus freedom is lost. With reference to Bill I, the Inclusion of "except by due pro- cess of law" is tlie very means whereby the aforementioned "rights and freedoms in Can- ada" may be deprived by law Without the Alberta Bill of Rights the individual already enjoys these freedoms. Bill II states that "this Act" can be superseded by an act of the legislature, couched in the terminology, "unless it is expressly declared by an act of the legislature that it operates notwithstanding this a c t." Therefore the act itself is the means by which the individual is deprived of his rights. The "code of conduct" as stated in Bill II is unacceptable and discrimnatory in itself. It deprives the individual of the right of choice. Without choice freedom is lost. It suggests that all signs, symbols, emblems and other representations race, religious beliefs, color, sex and age, ancestory and place of origin (nationality) are illegal under the act. In effect it deprives one of being an in- dividual. A study of the Alberta Bill of Rights by every freedom- loving Albertan is a must. MRS. ALTA NIELEON Calgary University in name only? Abraham Lincoln is supposed to have once said, "If you call a lail a leg, how many legs has a dog? Five? No, calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg." Similarly, just calling an edu- cational institution a university doesn't make it a university. The universities commission would appear to be following a policy which, if it is not re- versed, will leave Calgary with an educational institution which is a university in tame only. There are certain functions in which a university must en- gage if it is to be truly a uni- versity. Even the report of the Worth Commission recognizes Ihe "unique mandate" of the universities. These functions, which include the search for and acquisition of knowledge, as well as the free dissemina- tion of knowledge, are precise- ly those which the recent de- cisions of the universities com- mission are designed to under- mine. The faculty of arts and science always has been, and remains, willing to discuss ra- tionally the relative merits of three-year and four-year pro- grams. That is not, and never has been, the real issue. The real issue is whether the citi- zens of Calgary and southern Alberta are Ho have a univer- sity in fact 'or only a univer- sity in name. In recognition oE the realities present sit- uation, the council iof the facul- ty of arts and science, meeting on Thursday, Octoher 26, agreed to the following! "RESOLVED: That the'Coun- cil of the faculty of arts and science of the University of Cal- gary, being cognizant of the at- tempt of the universities com- mission of the Government of Alberta lo interfere with an on- going academic program through manipulation of the univeristy's budget, the unilateral and unjustifiable action of the com- mission the attention of the com- munity to the serious and far- reaching implications of the purely political control of aca- demic institutions; the president of the University of Calgary in his unreserved and unequivocal re- jection of the commission's pre- scription of a subordinate role for the University of Calgary in the program of higher edu- cation in the province." One poinl should be made quile clear. The faculty of arts and science will not allow the prejudicial decision of the uni- versities commission to jeopar- dize the academic programs of any of its students. We shall continue to offer a quality four- year program. We recognize that we cannot survive without tlie active support of the citizens of southern Alberta, but we are confident that we have their support. It is inconceivable to us that they will allow the ef- forts which went into produc- ing this university to be siph- oned off, leaving behind an in- stitution which is a university in name only. ROBERT G. WEYANT, PhD DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF ARTS AND SCIENCE Calgary. Hunter aid Nay I suggest a possible sol- ution to the "hunter-farmer" relations. Issued along with every hunt- er's license should be a proper colored jacket with a large number on the back "similar to a hockey player's number" which could be read or Identi- fied within range of a sholgun or at a similar distance if he were shooting around build- ings. This number could be read at the far end of the field with fieldglasses or telescope. This way a hunter not wear- his number could be con- sidered breaking the law or hunting without a license. Num- bers could be from 1 to 99 and then Al to A99 usinn a letter of the alphabet Al, Bl and so on. There is no doubt that If a hunter thought he could be identified at any distance, he would surely be more careful.
