Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Priest attacks church TORONTO (CP) Leo Lafrenicrc of Thunder Bay, one of Ontario's leading ex- ponents of sex education for children, has criticized the Roman Catholic Clmrch for re- fusing to change time-worn dic- tunis which condemn common- marriages. The Catholic priest told meeting of Parents Without Partners that common law union is sometimes as strong as legal marriage. "It depends on the commit- ment that the two people have for one another it can be a union conductive to a better re- lationship between a man and a woman." He added that he was againsl Indiscriminate premarital sex and attacked Marion Powell, University of Toronto professor for advocating in a recent book that all leen-age girls should bi given the pill. "If she were drawing on pub- lic funds, I would sav that she ought to be Mr. Lafre- niere said. "What she is pro- posing is violating the sacred- ness of the home." He told the meeting that through interviews with hun- dreds of teen-agers for a study on human sexuality, he has seen the harm indiscriminate sex can cause. SEX AMONG THE PAIMS Can you spot Ihe sex among 1he palm trees? Just turn the Seychelles 50-rupee note on its side and look above Ihe Queen's portrait. Authorities on the British Crown colony in the Indian Ocean seem so embarrased by the discovery they are try- ing to stop the notes leaving the islands' shore. But somo are being smuggled out. Their scarlcity value in London is such that the notes are fetching three times Iheir face value of just under four pounds about 10 among collectors.

"For a government agency like the U1C lo emplov ex-po- licemen and other professional security-guard types for the ex- press purpose of interrogating unspecting workers and to trick them through the use of leading questions into making state- ments which lead to their dis- qualification, smacks of the use of government goon squads to cut down the cost of unemploy- ment insurance and to deliber- ately distort unemployment sta- [he statement said. Both Mr. Mackasey's office itid the UIC said they have not received any such protest rom CUPE. 1YORDS 'A BIT STRONG' Mr. Chariebois said he bought Mr. Greene's words 'were a bit strong" and that he gathered that the attack arose from the experience of one la- )orcr.

EMPLOYEES CO-OPERATE The commission has the co- operation of more than 500 em- ployers in the West and Mari- tlmes and plans meetings with those from Ontario. Quebec and the Prairies in the near future. Employers will advise the cal manpower office of any need for workers with particu- lar skills.

Benefits would be cut off if recipients turn down the kind of work they have supposedly been looking for. 1y of which 100 -are not sblo to start school. The project would be aban- doned if Ihe province decides to go ahead with universal kin- dergartens. Alberta, N e w Brunswick and Prince Ed ward Island are the only provinces without such kindergartens. A 63-page administration re- port to the public school board says it would cost million a school year to lower the Grade 1 admittance age by one year. It added that million would be needed to start a double- entry system with children en- rolling either in September or 1 February. Universal kindergar- ten classes in the system would cost the board about 32 million, the report said.

That is the position of the Progressive Conservative party as stated in its defence and ex- ternal affairs policy papers is- sued here this week. They ex- pressed concern over the low morale In the armed forces. The present government's policy has disregarded the in- ternational peacekeeping role Canada once played "with dis- tinction" and has impaired the country's ability to contribute to the peace and welfare of other nations. It has also en dangered Canada's security, the Conservatives warned. Canada's capacity to share In the joint defence of the Atlantic area has been "undermined" by the unilateral reduction of her military commitment to NATO Canada's diplomatic repre- sentation- --although increased in some parts of the been "cut unrealistically" in others, said the P.C, party's pa- per. The Conserve t i v e p arty de- nounced Prime Minister Pierre Trudcau for resorting to an er- ratic foreign policy which at some times was isolationist and a I other times inter- nationalist. The "failure of Die present government to pursue any kind of consistent foreign policy" and its defence cuts had greatly under mined- Can- ada's credibility in the world1 community. This had led to deterioration in Canada's relations with many of Canada's close friends including Britain, the United j States and France. j The Conservative policy pap- j crs quote The Time.1; newspap- I cr of London as stating that Canada U.K. relations have "j'al'en to their loivesi poinl" years. It also claimed the New York Times had express- ed the views that Canadian- American relations are at a ebb. The reduction of Canada'; NATO forces was one factor in the present government's down grading of Canada's participa tion in the 15-member alliance. NATO is not only an allianci for common defence, it said. NATO is also an importan vehicle for diplomacy and in ternational co-operation. "For this reason, we believ nothing should be done t weaken the alliance, especiall as long as there is the chanc for a balanced reduction by a sides of military force in Eu said (he Conservatives.

But so far, the only assur- ance he has received is that Adventurers will try to have all the tourists back in Canada hy Nov. 10. They were originally supposed to leave Oct. 20. The pensioners themselves complain that they cannot af- ford to stay in London hotels any longer and that hy staying until Nov. 10. they v.ill miss the onpovtunity to vote in the Oct. 30 federal election. In Vancouver, the head of. Adventurers Travelaide, George Hartwig, said the origi- nal Dan-Air flight from London, which was to have brought the pensioners home Oct. 20, was cancelled, He said he has arranged transportation for the nine tour- ists on flights leaving London Oct. 27 and Nov. 10. His com- pany would assume responsi- bility for the pensioners' living expenses until they leave. BANKRUPTCY AUCTION SALE GROCERIES STORE EQUIPMENT 305 MAIN ST.
