Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Sculptor has last word in tombstone hassle Sculptor Ernst Neizvestny gestures in Moscow as he stands beside the bust of Nikita Khrushchev MOSCOW (AP) Sculptor Ernest Neizvestny had the last word Monday in a long- standing argument with Nikita Khruschev over ar- tistic expression in the Soviet Union The dispute, which began 12 years ago when Khruschev called Neizvestny's work was settled on the dead leader's grave as Neizvestny completed assembly of a tombstone he designed The gravemarker was com- missioned by Khrushchev's family the day after the Com- munist party boss died, Sept 11 1971 but was not erected until now because the Soviet Council of Ministers felt it was too controversial The monument in Novodevi- chy cemetery is a study in de- liberate ambiguity Standing nearly 10 feet tall on a bronze base, the gravemarker is a tense construction of black and white stone, divided in a ragg- ed line A super-realistic bronze bust of Khrushchev is bolted in a niche off the ground Neizvestny said the black- and-white composition is in- tended to depict the dualism of Khrushchev's and evil of equal torce A large crowd gathered at the cemetery Monday as a crane lifted sections of the monument into place Neizvestny's clash with Khrushchev began at an ex- hibit of avant-garde art in Moscow at the end of 1962 Already upset by some non- realistic art he had seen at the exhibit, Khrushchev stopped in front of a Neizvestny sculp- ture "This is Khrush- chev shouted "Thii is gar- bage Who did this9" Neizvestny stepped up and told the premier "You may be No 1 in the country, but not here in front of my work Here I am No 1 and we are going to talk as equals But out of it all, he made a new son, Sergei who was on hand with Neizvestny at Novodevichy cemetery Fri- day when a crane squeezed down the narrow alleys and winched out the first truckload of material for the monument Tuesday, 3, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Unity with whites Svon't happen' JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) There will never be unifica- tion between South Africa's white and colored (mixed-race) communities. Postal Minister Marais Viljoen said Monday Viljoen told the congress of the ruling National party's Youth League that colored leaders should accept that unity with whites will never happen "Once they have accepted this fact, their socio-economic development would be speeded he said The country's two million coloreds have recently been step- ping up their campaign for seats in the white parliament and an opportunity to share in running the country The group has its own the colored represen- tative council, prorogued last month after passing a motion of no confidence in the government's apartheid policies Viljoen said any digression from the parallel development pattern would generate bitterness by whites against coloreds, leading to a deterioration in race relations "Seeing that whites and coloreds would always occupy the same country, any hitches in their development could always be ironed out with mutual goodwill through liaison machinery an- nounced by the prime he added First 100 days act hard to follow PARIS (AP) President Valery Giscard d'Estaing of France, who completes his first 100 days in office today, has won high marks for a fast- moving reform campaign but inflation has just about ended the honeymoon One of his first actions following his inauguration May 27 was to launch an austerity campaign to reduce inflation and redress France's massive balance-of-payments deficit But even if successful, the measures will not produce results for months As Frenchmen returned from their August vacations, they found prices for virtually everything had gone up with the inflation rate now running at 15 per cent Giscard d Estaing went on television to mark the first three months of his presidency and appealed for "political calm, urging France's contentious labor un- ions to co-operate with him in the battle against inflation NOT IMPRESSED The opposition was not im- pressed One can understand that Mr Giscard d'Estaing may dream of docile labor unions but the French reality leaves no room for the least il- lusion on this score" said Georges Seguy, boss of the largest labor confederation A poll by the newspaper Le Figaro showed 51 per cent of those questioned felt govern- ment measures to curb prices are ineffective so far More than 70 per cent said they fear serious unemployment Sticking to his campaign pledge to "transform French society." Giscard d'Estaing's most notable innovations have been those affecting in- dividual freedoms He lowered the voting age to 18 from 21. ended the practice of indiscriminate wiretapping pursued by his Gaullist predecessors and abolished forced registration for Frenchmen at hotels His made birth- control pills freelv available He has given unequivocal sup- port to modernizing the country's abortion law and in- stalled respected magazine editor Francoise Giroud in the cabinet and assigned her to "the improvement of the feminine condition REVISING DIVORCE LAW The government now is pre- paring a revised divorce law allowing separation by mutual consent Giscard d'Estaing was con- fronted with violent prison riots and demonstrations by farmers earlier this summer but handled both with a minimum of head-bashing A prison reform law has been approved and subsidies to farmers were In iorcifn alfajrs. Ibp presi- dent has gnen France a low profile so far but is about to launch major initiatives for the political and economic un- ion of Europe Giscard d'Esta- ing has changed Gaullist hostility toward Washington into an outwardly cordial but wary relationship France also appears lo be trying to edge closer to NATO, which it left militanlv in 1966 A recent defence review con- ducted by the president was reported to have considered face saving formulas to per- mit coordination of some French military forces with the alliance PHOTO 41 9 5th Street South Phone 328-6661 CLOSED OPEN THURS.
