Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta B.C.: the winds of change blow ]ly JAY New York Times Service VICTORIA, B.C. Tho so- cialist government chosen in an upset election two months ago is shaking off British Colum- bia's old Empire ways. Premier David Barrett who swept the New Democratic Par- ty into power, made headlines a fow days ago announcing that' his government would take over the B.C. Telephone Company, long an NDP target. When the announcement cruis- ed tho company's stock to plum- met, Barrett said he had not set a date to and had no plans to name one. Changing times were evident last week when the venerable Lieutenant Governor, John Nicholson, as personal repre- sentative of Queen Elizabeth, went before the opening session of the new legislature to read the Traditional speech from the throne. Nicholson, in gray silk hat, morning clothes and medals slopped out o( liis black limou- sine to be greeted by Hie 12- year-old Barrett, wearing a checkered sport Jacket, tan slacks and a brown tie. Outside the Victorian govern- ment building the Union Jack fluttered aloft and a carilloner played "Rule Brittania." In- side, the legislators and their guests heard tlie Queen's repre- sentative call for higher a month) old age pensions, sweeping new powers for labor, an end to the ban on liquor ad- vertising and a an hour minimum wage (up from "This is only the said Barrett in an interview. "The telephone takeover is pol- icy, but it will come later." There arc other signs of change.

But it is recalled that Bennett, the anti-socialist, may have set the precedent when, a few years ago in an argument with the utility management, he "na- tionalized" B.C.

Hitler definitely dead dental records show SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) A Califorma dentist says recently uncovered dental records prove conclusively that Adolf Hitler is dead and that the German dictator was in frequent pain from a gum infection late in his life. Dr. Reidar Sognnaes of Los Angeles (old an interview last week an x-ray of Hitler's teeth that he found in Ameri- can war archives provided proof that "will stand any test." Sognnaes, professor of den- tistry at the University California at Los Angeles said the x-ray, previously available dental records and an autopsy performed by Russian doctors on bones found outside Hitler's Berlin bunker all coincide to show he died in tho bunker in 1545. The x-ray evidence was conclusive because of Hitler's unusual dental work, Sog- said. "A pecular telephone bridge, very bizarre crowns and unmisiakeable gum dis- ease have given us the key to disprove ail the rumors that Hitler is still the den- tist said. Soggnaes said the denial x- ray was made along with a number of medical tests in. 1944 after an unsuccessful at- tempt on Hitler's life. It was part of medical records seized by U.S. troops after in- terrogating Hitler's doctors. The dentist found it in a search of military archives in Maryland.

Income from movies and television, on the other hand, is declining Last year television program ming provided million ant movies only million. The amount an actor gets usually depends on how many times the spot is broadcast. In the case of Jirn Davis, his com mercial has been running for two years. As the number of movies an> shows being made de- clines, even some of the raps' important stars are appearin on commercials or are toutin products with their distincliv voices. Commercials are said lo hav rescued a few sagging careers and given some actors for first lime the luxury of lurnin down bad parts and the finan ciai freedom to pursue cultura sidelines. "At first the big actors didn ant to have anything to d rfth said Jac 'ormser, one of about gents who handle performer xclusively for commercials.
