Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wsdnesdny, September 1, 1971 IN SEVEN A series of dynamile blasls sent on specializes in blasting away structures. No olher buildings were dam- eight-story building crashing to the ground in Memphis, Tenn. The demo- aged in the blast, lition of lhe former cation warehouse was by a Maryland firm that Killer floods claim more than 600 lives Sir Winston Churchill heirs keep up family traditions NEW DELHI (Renter) At least COO and possibly more than persons have died in the monsoon floods ravaging north- em and eastern India, reports indicate. Several million are homeless and crops ivorth at least million have been damaged. The Hoods are so widespread and devastating and communi- cations and administration so badly disrupted that accurate figures are difficult to compute. The figures were swollen Sun- day when official reports came in of 122 cholera deaths in the flood-affected Gaya district of Bihar state and of at least CO drownings in Bihar and the neighboring state of Uttar Pra- desh. Forty persons are feared to have drowned when a boat Ganges rivers of Bihar's Patna I district. Official reports reaching Lucknow, the Uttar Pradesh capital, said at least 20 people were drowned when a boat cap- carrying 150 flood evacuees j sized in the swollen Ghagra sank Friday night near the con-1 River in the Deoria district of fluence of the swollen Sone and I the state. In Calcutta, the secretary ol the West Bengal Jan Sangh (right wing Hindu nationalist) party said more than 200 people died in the floods of Malda dis- trict in the north of West Ben- j gal. Hari Prasanna Mishra was 1 speaking to reporters after re- turning from two weeks' work. LONDON (AP) The heirs nf Sir Winston Churchill include a grandson who has dropped into the family and a pretly granddaugh- ter who has dropped out. Tile chosen palhi of Winslon S. Churchill, ill, a junior Con- servative member of Parlia- ment, and his rebellious hippie sisler Arabella, 21, may be in slrikng contrast. But Ihey are in keeping wilh Ihc traditions of a greal Knglish family which, whatever else, never has been conventional. Winslon and Arabella arc the fourth generation of the branch of Ihe Churchill dynasty founded 97 years ago by the marriage of Lord Randolph Churchill and American society beauty Jennie Jerome, which to this day is keep out of Ihe public eye. Winston, a a good one as his grandfather once Parliament in 1970 and now is walking Ihe paths Ihe famed old man once trod lo the pinnacle of political power in the Second World War. MAKES NEWS Winston, healthy, lean and wiry, looks a good deal like his grandfather. He has dynamic ideas, doesn't hesitate to ex- press them, and never ducks an argument. That makes news. To his annoyance, lu's sister gels plenty of publicity out of the simple expedient of being a self-made dropout. Winston's private life is just lhat: married since lo Msry Caroline D 'c r 1 a n g e r, daughter of the former presi- dent of the British Overseas Air Corp. They are rearing a son and two daughters in the undis- turbed quiet of Ihe English countryside. Arabella, who looks slart- lingly like her father Randolph, was a typical product of the English upper classes until a few months ago. Srne was a soci- ety debutante in 1967 and later did a stint of charity work. Then came the transformation and what emerged was Arabella the hippie. Arabella started doing her own tiling by refusing an invila- tion to be the Queen of the 1071 Azalea Festival at Norfolk, Va., bacause Allr.ntic headquarters of NATO arc based there. The political philosophy be- hind her refusal was all ralhcr But she asserted that grandfather's Iron Curtain should be called the "final cur- tain" if nations band together like this, Alier that blast. Arabella j dropped out of public view for ihrec months. She didn't surface again antil the Glaslonbury Hip- pie Festival, where it turned out she had spent her weeks in hid- ing, helping lo organize Ihe nf- fair. The pop festival wound up wilh a mass sex session in the mud, bongo drums, a nude Welshman dancing like a der- vish and the usual incidents of marijuana and LSD trips. Arabella has expleined: "I think in a way I'm trying to forget my family background although al the same time I'm proud of my name. My family think I'm a bit potty, but they're still very nice lo me." Other Churchill descendants arc in the obscure background, probably g reflection of parental demands for old-fashioned Brit- ish life and morals. For instance, Sir Winston's daughter Mary is married to Christopher bloames, British ambassador in Paris. Their three sons are grown up and their two daughters live wiUi them in (lie embassy mansion the Duke of Wellington bought from Napoleon's sisler. Not even Ihc names of their children are listed in their official biog- raphies nor in Who's Who. The same goes for Ihe one son and two daughters the late Diana Churchill bore for Dun- can Sandys, a veteran Tory pol ilician and minister.
