Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 3, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 7 Young Political Interns Set To Test House's Pulse OTTAWA (CP) - A group of young political interns is preparing to feel the pulse of Parliament. The 10 interns, including uni-. versity graduates and students, are withholding comments on the state of Parliament's health because they've just begun, "From this position we can only speculate," said Garry Curtis, 23, of Victoria, when asked how close Parliament is to the people. "I want to pull back and examine things like the scientist -without prejudice." The parliamentary internship program began Sept. 1.

By then they will have worked with MPs and Commons staff, learning about the inner workings of Parliament and federal politics. 100 APPLIED More than 100 applied for the 10 positions. The 10 will work with members of all political parties. The annual program is sponsored by the Canadian Political Science Association in collaboration with the Speaker of the Commons and the House leaders of the various parties. Applications were issued by the political science association. The program is designed to allow graduates of Canadian universities to supplement their academic training with a practical knowledge of the functions of Parliament and the daily work of MPs. Interns are expected to write a paper analysing their exDeri-ences after they have completed their internship. They each receive $6,000, which is not taxable, plus transportation costs to and from Ottawa. They began by attending orientation lectures from Commons staff and such men as former prime mirMers John Dief-enbaker and Lester Pearson SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES FORT MACLEOD - Empress Theatre "ICE STATION ZEBRA"-In color.

Bennett Friday raised, the prospect C a heavier tax load for British Columbia residents next year. The surprise announcement-after months of public statements that the tax line would be held in B.C. - was linked by Mr. Bennett to the refusal of the federal government to increase aid to the province, A "second look" at the taxation question will be taken, he said,'but he declined to speculate on details because "that would be a matter for the budget." He said he asked the finance department, which he heads, to carry out a "review of our whole taxation system." The request was made Thursday, he said, adding "it is my duty to advise the press and the public at the earliest possible moment."

Box 752, Lethbridge Prof. Gabriel Kolko of York University said in Toronto he has received landed immigrant status from the Canadian government, putting an end to a possible lega battle. Prof. Kolko said his lawyer, Paul Copeland, received the news by telephone from Ottawa earlier in the day. Prof. Kolko had been hired by York and moved to Toronto from Buffalo, N.Y., but received a letter from the department of manpower and immigration July 20 saying his presence in the country would be "contrary to Canada's national interests." An outspoKen critic of the war in Vietnam, Prof. Kolko had bsen scheduled to appear for a hearing Oct. 8 at Osgoode Hall on the federal government's decision to keep him out of the country. * �  Billy and Antoinette Edwards, stars of the controversial film A Married Couple, are planning a divorce. "Billy and I just bring out the worst in each other," says Antoinette. "We don't put our forces in the right place when we're together." It was the ability to "bring out the worst in each other" that made A Married Couple such a controversial film. Released here in November, 1969, the Allan King movie played across Canada, in the United States and Europe. * * * The Hamilton Spectator has announced senior editorial staff changes, including the appointment of a sports writer to take over temporarily from the newspaper's women's editor.

Mr. Williams becomes district editor, and District Editor Paul Warnick becomes city editor. * .*  The white man should start listening to the red man before all mankind is doomed, says author Vine Dcloria Jr., an American Indian. "History will ultimately justify the Indian's way of life and if there are any survivors left it will be an Indian - some uneducated Cree out on his trapline in the wilderness who didn't hear the bomb go off," Deloria declares. *   Doris Smith burst into tears of joy at London - she was a winner.

A Soviet nuclear scientist insists that Russian researchers, not Americans, were the first to discover the heavy radioactive chemical element, No. 105 in the periodic table. Researcher Georgia N. Fle-rov says the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission ignored a Soviet technical document which he said buttresses his country's claim. The new-found element, named "hahnium" by the Americans, is artificially made by bombarding another element with nuclear rays. It decays almost immediately, with a radioactive "half-life" of only 1.6 seconds. U.S. scientists contend the discovery might help toward artificially creating-or even ultimately finding on earth-a long-predicted exotic form of lead which might have practical uses.
