Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Octobtr 13, 1973 LETHBRIDGE HERALD -11 Ready-to-wear designer to make Princesses wedding dress LONDON (CP) She is a young lady of simple yet col- orful taste with an eye for the latest fashions. She is soon to be married Pearson played role in war end By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) In the Middle East war of 1956, the United Nations, partly through the efforts of Canada, managed to stop hostilities through the dispatch of a mul- tinational peace force to the area. With Middle East War No. 4 in progress, the story of that dramatic and exhausting Canadian effort is about to be related in the second volume of Mike, the memoires of Lester B. Pearson. The volume, to be released shortly by University of Toronto Press, deals with the days when Pearson was under-secretary of state for external affairs, external af- fairs minister and leader of the Liberal party. Two chapters of the volume start from the creation of Israel in 1948 to the days when Pearson, Liberal Opposition leader in the Diefenbaker Parliament, won the Nobel Prize for his Middle East work. Readers are taken from the cautious Canadian "attitude over the creation of Israel, through the strong opposition of the government of Louis St. Laurent to the British-French landing in Pearson regarded as a to November, 1956, when Pearson fought through the idea of the UN force to bring peace to the area and help extricate Bri- tain and France. Pearson died last December before he could complete his memoires. The editors of Volume II sMd some was written by Pearson, but much, including two chapters on the Middle East, was drawn from an array of firstperson material. Mike is written in the first person and the editors say the only material they Inserted was that necessary to act as a bridge between Pearson's re- marks. They said a decision will be made by the end of the year whether to go ahead w ith Vol- ume III. When the former prime minister knew he was dying, they said, he stopped work on Volume II, which he knew his collaborators could finish, and started on the next volume. When he died he left 200 handwritten pages. Pearson explains the Liberal government's reason- ing in opposing the British- French Suez action in 1956, an opposition that brought a storm of criticism from Conservatives. Perhaps two of the most in- teresting points raised by Pearson deal with the attitude of Egyptian President Nasser to the UN Emergency Force and in particular the Canadians, virtually the creators of the force. Pearson tells of how Dag Hammarskjold, then UN secretary-general, was told by Nasser that the UNEF would leave Egyptian soil whenever the Egyptians decided its work was accomplished. Pearson reacted strongly to this news but Hammarskjold told the Canadian not to worry about it and that Nasser was told this was unacceptable. Eleven years later Nasser ordered the UNEF to leave and the then secretary- general, U Thant, complied. Shortly thereafter the 1967 six-day war broke out. Pearson tells how Nasser attempted to keep Canadians out of the UNEF, allegedly because the Canadian contribution was to have been the Queens Own Rifles, a regi- ment bearing the same name as a British outfit then sitting between Israel and Egyptian forces in the Suo? area. Canada, suspecting that Nasser xvas attempting to create a UN force made up of countries Egypt could control reacted indignantly. Maj.-Gen. E L. M. Burns, Canadian head of UNEF, came to the conclusion that> the best role Canadians could fill in the force was that of support rather than infantry. Pearson complained that nobody believed him when he told the Commons that Canada had sent the troops Burns wanted. The opposition talked scorn- fully of a typewriter army that was sent because Cana- dian fighting men could not (TO. and has chosen a designer from the London ready-to- wear house of Susan Small to fashion her wedding dress. Princess Anne has, in re- cent years, surprised many people who believed royalty to be traditionally stiff and for- mal. The 23-year-old princess, who will marry Capt. Mark Phillips in November, enjoys the rapidly changing variety of the young fashion scene and the sense of fun that pervades it. Of course, she has an offi- cial role to fulfil, royal occa- sions that demand formal dressing. But Princess Anne has built a reputation as a fashion individualist with a perfect sense of what to wear and when. With the world of fashion to, choose from, she has found' she can dress impeccably by choosing largely from the'sec- tor that has made London fa- mous as a fashion ready-to-wear industry. SHOPS INCOGNITO She runs accounts at two of London's brightest stores for fashion and fashion acces- sories, Fortnum and Mason and Harrods. She can still go shopping with a lady-in-waiting or with friends without being recog- young lady with a scarf tied casually round her golden hair generally man- ages to elude the attentions of other shoppers. She owns little jewelry. A string of pearls from her par- ents, a diamond and ruby brooch she chose from the Queen Mother's collection and a gold bracelet she was given when bridesmaid to Princess Alexandra are among the few real pieces she has owned so far. For her engagement ring she chose a sapphire in a cor- onet setting, flanked by two diamonds. For her 18th birthday her parents gave her a diamond necklace and on important oc- casions she wears one of two simply designed diamond tiaras. One of these had been worn by both the Queen and Princess Margaret when they were young, the other was a gift to the Queen from her mother-in-law, the late Prin- cess Andrew of Greece. STYLES SIMPLE When the fuction is an offi- cial one the young princess wears formal suits simply styled with a channel seaming as the main detail, usually in a pastel color and with a pin or brooch on the lapel. A smart hat and matching shoes com- plete the outfit and her gloves are usually three-quarter length, in black or white. Pant-suits are a favorite for informal occasions. A bright red oiie has been her choice for watching polo at Windsor and for sailing she likes a navy blue version. She wears pant-suits on family occa- sions, such as travelling on holidays, which a generation ago would have called for more formal dressing. Weekends and holidays are the time she puts on Carnaby Street hipster jeans, check shirts and wide hessian belts with brass buckles, but for riding she prefers the tradi- tionally tailored habit. Princess Anne is not keen to be a trend-setter. She shops around and is a regular vis- itor to Britain's most famous chain store, Marks and Spen- cer, where she buys sweaters and casuals. The Queen, who always in- sisted that her daughter be treated like any other girl dur- ing school days, wisely gave the princess her own way about what she wore at an ear- ly age. As a result the princess now has the skill to know what suits she can be as fashionable as any other girl of her ape. r CHECK STOP The Check Stop officer who looks at your pink card is concerned about your life.
