Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, October 17, 1970 Canada Crisis Grips U.S. WASHINGTON (CP) - The crisis in Canada held attention here Friday as Ottawa's decision to invoke the War Measures Act dominated newspaper front pages, sweeping several other major stories aside. Although the move announced by Prime Minister Trudeau was e major topic of conversation around town, official Washington predictably decUned to comment publicly on the grounds it involved the internal affairs of a friendly country. Senator Mike Gravel (Dem. Alaska), a Fi-ench-speaking native of Massachusetts, sent a telegi'am to Trudeau saying: "I hope for you that this hour of Courts May Censor Films CALGARY (CP) - Art Dixon, Social Credit MLA for Cal-gar/ South, says he supports the" idea of a film classifica-tdon system which would leave decisions of movie censorship up to the courts. Anti-Noise Plan Delayed EDMONTON (CP) - City council has delayed implementation of a noise abatement bylaw until the end of the year, but will proceed with an anti-noise education program in the meantime. The city's administration had recommended the bylaw become effective next Tuesday but council delayed it after being told proper enforcement is not available. "As long as a person can take his objections about a movie to the courts there is no need for the government or a censor to intervene," he said in an interview. Mr. Dixon, speaker of the legislature, says he feels censors have less film footage to cut because the courts in general are taking a more liberal approach to the definition of obscenity. Provincial Treasurer Anders Aalborg has said the government is considering legislation which would take censorship decisions away from the provin cial board and allow citizens to challenge fihn coaitents in the courts. agony becomes one of your finest for Quebec and all Canada." "Canada calls emergency," said the banner headline of The Evening Star, which also carried frontpage pictm-es of Trudeau heading for an emergency cabinet meeting and anny troops outside Montreal's city hall. "Canada suspends civU liberties," said the tabloid Washington Daily News, adding in smaller print: "Trudeau sends troops to Montreal to crush 'free-Quebecers'." Stories demoted to lesser prominence Included those on the first hijacking of a Soviet airliner. State Secretary William Rogers' visit to the United Nations, campaigning for the Nov. 3 United States congressional elections and the long- MYTfflCAL WATERWAY The Strait of Anian was a mythical waterway through the continent of America sought in vain by many early explorers.

BOX 6, LETHBRIDGE HERALD awaited grand jiu-y report on the Kent State student kiUings last May. Although It was learned the U.S. has somewhat stepped up security surveillance of Canadian buildings here, both Canadian and U.S. officials were tight>-lipped about the situation. Strom To Speak In Monti-eal EDMONTON (CP) ~ Premier Harry Strom will visit Montreal during the first week in Novembr. A government spokesman said the Alberta premier will speak to the Canadian Club on the topic The 1970s in Canadia, a Decade of Development. Tories To Step Down HLIFAX (CP - Premier G. I. Smith of Nova Scotia announced Friday his Progressive Conservative government will resign Wednesday, Oct. 28, unless official results in last Tuesday's provincial election change party standings. He said unofficial returns indicate liberal Leader Gerald Regan will head the next government. NO EFFECTS Dr. Jaimes Henry and Patriida Stephens, a pair of University of Southern California Medical School researchers, conducted ejcperimeiits with isolated mice that indkiated coffee itself neither affects blood pressure, nor contributes to coroniary diseatse. The election-night count gave the liberals 23 of thte 46 seats in the legislature, just one short of a majority. The Conservatives won 21 and the New Democratic Party two. Official tabulation begins next Tuesday, Oct. 20. Gordon Davidson, chief electoral officer, expected the official coijnt to be completed by'Oct. 22. Asked about rumors that he would step down as party leader, the premier' said: "I don't believe all I -read in the newspapers. I intend to be around for a whUe." The premier held a news conference after a two-hour caucus of Conservaifcive party members in the last House. Recounts in a number of eats could change the fmal standing. A switch of one or two seats could give the Liberals the majority they lack or bring the Conservatives up even with them. In the last legislature the gov-er ment had 41 members and the Liberals only five. The NOP was not represented.

E. Cross PHOTOGRAPHY LTD. Taber, Albertn Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Scott M. Hurst, age 8, of Logan, West Virginia, for his question: What is a manta ray? The manta ray looks like a huge, weird visitor from another world. But he is a true earth-ling and his ancestors have hved in our oceans for millions and milions of years. Skin divers sometimes catch a glimpse of him in warm, tropical seas, flapping through the murky water somewhat like a huge, lazy bat. Sometimes he takes a giant leap higli into the air and splashes down with a thunderous wallop. But most of the time he lies flat on the bottom or flaps through the water. � � 4: You might never guess it, but the manta ray belongs to the shark tribe. Most sharks are large, streamlined fishes-very swift and very strong. The manta ray is large and also very strong. But his body is shaped like a big wide diamond with a long skinny tail. When he swims, his tapering sides move like a pair of enormous wings. In his lazy way, he seems to flap through the water like a flymg bird. Actually, those enormous wings are special fins. The sight of him is astonishing. The size of him is even more astonishing. His diamond-shaped body may be more than 20 feet wide. This is longer than three very tall men. On the scales, he weighs about 3,-000 pounds, or IVz tons. He weighs as much as ten very big, fat men. A fellow this big is bound to be a bit scary - especially since he has a large open mouth, a glassy stare and two curved horns on his head. We can hardly blame the people who nam�i him the Devilfish. But the manta does not deserves this fierce name at all, for he is a very gentle giant. Most of his sharky cousins are bloodthirsty hunters, always famished and eager to tear into meat. They devour fishes and even human swimmers. The manta ray is content to feed on small snacks. He scoops up mouthfuls of tiny jlants, fish eggs and miniature i.shes. He may eat a snack as large as a shrimp and some people say he may lunch on a clam. But he never bites into a skin diver - nor does he try to smash people with his mighty wings. Usually he ignores them or swims away. However, he likes to nuzzle a dangling line and sometimes he breaks an air hose. And, of course, when he leaps 15 feet above the water, he may chance to bellyflop down on a boat. But naturally this is an accident. Many other sharks lay eggs sealed in hard cases. But Mrs. Manta Ray gives birth to a live baby and Junior is an only child. His mother is quite likely to toss him playfully way up into the air. This is quite something, for the newborn baby may weigh 30 pounds. * * * There are about 400 assorted members of the shark tribe. The manta ray has several smaller cousins - and some of them lash fierce stinging tails. The rays and all the other shark fishes have bones made of gristle, also leathery skins and gills that look some- what like slits in blind. * * a Venetian SHOE REPAIR Fast dependable service at reasonable prices . .
