Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, Ottob.r 17, In 1889, David Roth borrowed a book on memory improve- ment from a friend. He hasn't forgotten that, or much else. Both celebrated his 97th birthday at Los Angeles and conceded: "My memory is DAVID ROTH Memory Wizard commencing to deteriorate a tiny bit. Recalling the names of people doesn't come quite as easily as it used to." But the retired memory teacher can still rattle off the telephone numbers of the 600 members of his Rotary Club. Or name the day of the week corresponding to any date from 1752 to 3000. Or recite Thomas Gray's 128- Jine Elegy Written in a County Churchyard. Or, if you name a mileage fi- gure between any 200 United States cities listed in a standard table, tell you which two cities tie mileage refers to.

The plan also will prohibit business firms from paying di- vidends of more than 12 per cent annually, with the excess profit going to help clear a bud- get deficit. Lord Bertram! Rnssell.

Dennis McDermott, Canadian vice-president of the union, said in an interview during the week- end that expiry of the strike fund will even cut off his salary. "We'll all be a little thinner when this is he says. Workers at seven GM plants in Ontario and Quebec joined American workers in going on strike Sept, 13. Opera- tions were shut down in GM plants in 31 states and in Osh- awa, Windsor, London, St. Cath- arines, Toronto and Ste. Therese, Que. Mr. McDermott said there is no sign of a breakthrough on the major issues of wages, eost-of-living benefits and pen- sions now being negotiated in Detroit. COMPANY PINCHED Larry Gough, a GM spokes- man, said the company also is beginning to feel the strike's ef- fects. "We had only a limited quant- ity of cars ready for the market when the assembly lines shut he said. Strike benefits, ranging from a week for single men to for married ones with chil- dren, began on the eighth day of the strike. The workers in Osh'awa alone cost the interna- tional strike fund an estimated a week. Mr. McDermott said that at this rate, the million fund is expected to last another two weeks. Mr. McDermott said it would be the first time the interna- tional strike fund has been emp- tied since it was started in 1935. He plans to appeal this week to both the Canadian Labor Con- gress and the Ontario Federa- tion of Labor for extra money. When the strike fund runs out, workers will not be eligible for unemployment insurance. Union leaders in Ontario and Quebec say morale remains come by reading faster and high, but strike headquarters are beginning to receive some requests for help in meeting mortgage and rent payments.

Male's Final Stronghold Disappears LUZERN (AP) The male Voters of the Swiss canton of Luzern awarded women the right to vote here and be elected to public office. Approval by votes to and the low 51-per-cent participation of the male reg- istered voters is indicative of the trend in this Alpine area, where tradition once reserved political matters to men. Luzern has been a main stronghold of that tradition. Only 10 years ago the men threw down the idea of women's participation in polit- ical affairs by a three-to-one majority. About one-third of women now have equal politi- cal rights at the local level. Drug, Homosexual Activities Warden Denies Allegations Of Ex-Prisoner EDMONTON (CP) Warden Jim Murphy has denied that young prisoners in Matsqui Penitentiary are being intro- duced to heroin and homosex- ual activities. He was replying in an inter- view last Friday to allegations by a former prisoner. The pris- oner said that as much as 100 caps of heroin go into the peni- tentiary at a time and is sold either for cash or for hobby items made by the prisoners. The penitentiary, east of Vancouver, is the only hard- drug treatment centre in west- ern Canada. Mr. Murphy said probably a lot of heroin gets in, "it has to be expected when you bring together 200 drug but he doubted young prisoners were being introduced to drugs, j "I suppose it could happen. However, there are few philan- thropists among them, and I can't imagine any of them trusting their money to some- one else." ADMITS POSSIBILITY Mr. Murphy said that heroin can be brought in by a prisoner wrapping it in foil from a cig- arette package, then putting it Into a balloon and swallowing it. It could also be put in a tennis ball and thrown over the fence. About 10 per cent of Matsqui prisoners are allowed out on temporary absence. "It's a medium security in-; stitutioh. I suppose we could make it a maximum security! and throw It back three cen- turies. "As for the homosexual charge, I can categorically deny this. "I can't Imagine the men having any interest in homo- sexual activities when they can go outside." Mr. Murphy said prisoners at Motor Plant Strike May Be Called BRAMPTON, Ont.
