Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE Stptember Uncle Ben makes most of strike Enoch Powell running under Ulster banner DEATHS The beer shortage has- resulted in at least one city hotel's closing its tavern, and doubled production at the only Alberta brewery still able to deliver its product. Douglas Jones, manager of the Marquis Hotel, said today the tavern has been closed, though bottled beer is still sold in the lounge. The hotel has no draft beer, he said. Tim Nowlin, assistant bar manager at the El Rancho Motor Hotel, said that es- tablishment should last the week out. A spokesman for another Mayor Magrath Drive hotel said supplies were very low and would soon be exhausted. Bill Sleightholm, relief manager at the retail beer store, said it has been dry since the weekend. Tony Prosk, senior clerk at the south side liquor store, said only a small quantity of imported beer is on hand. Ali Rizvi, office manager for Uncle Ben's Brewery, said in a telephone interview from Red Deer production there has been doubled. The brewery normally produces about cases a day, but is making "easily" A second shift has been added and more staff hired, and a third shift might be started soon, he said. "We have orders coming out of our ears from all parts of said Mr. Rizvi. Uncle Ben's is the only brewery not affected by the strike by the United Brewery Workers against Alberta Brewers' Agents Ltd. ABA is a distribution system owned by Molson's, Carling O'Keefe and Labatt's breweries. HELICOPTER SHOT DOWN SAIGON (AP) Viet Cong gunfire brought down a South Vietnamese helicopter on a medical evacuation mission 15 miles west of Da Nang, the South Vietnamese military command said today. STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S. Phone 327-3024 LONDON (AP) Enoch Powell, Britain's scholarly right-wing renegade, rose from political obscurity Tues- day under a new label. Powell, 62, was adopted overwhelmingly as parliamentary candidate for the Northern Ireland con- stituency of South Down. His adoption as an Ulster Unionist was almost a passport into the House of Commons in the next general election, expected next month He will likely have little effective op- position. Powell, a former govern- ment minister who lost favor with the Conservative high command for alleged racism, takes over the South Down riding from Capt. Lawrence Orr, who announced last that he would not run tor health reasons." In last February's general election, Orr held the seat with votes, a margin of over an opponent representing the Roman Catholic community. Insiders pi edict Powell will increase that margin. In his new role as a Protes- tant Loyalist, Powell might be a rallying point for right-wing dissidents in the Tory party he refused to represent in the Commons earlier this year. In effect he rejected the leadership of Conservative party chief Edward Heath, considering Heath a dangerous left-winger. As party spokesman on de- fence matters in 1968 when the Conservatives were in opposi- tion, Powell said "rivers of blood" might flow in British streets if colored immigration was not halted and reversed. Heath was furious. When Heath led the Conservatives to victory in the 1970 election, Powell was left out of the cabinet. Powell, former MP for Wol- verhampton, opposed Heath's efforts to curb prices and in- comes and even cast doubt on Heath's sanity and integrity. He was violently opposed to Britain's entry into the Eu- ropean Common Market, ad- vising voters to support the Labor party which was also cool to Britain's membership. The final break came Feb. 7 when Powell said the Feb. 28 election called by Heath was "an act of gross irrespons- ibility." He said he would not seek re-election to the House of Commons under the Tory banner. He also opposed all efforts to bring Northern Ireland's feuding Roman Catholic and Protestant communities together. He supported the cause of Protestant domina- tion in the six counties. Now ,the Conservative maverick seems likelv to enter Parliament under o banner of Protestant sec- tarianism. TerHorst gives boot to Nixon priest-advisor WASHINGTON (AP) The White House position held by Rev. John McLaughlin, a con- troversial Jesuit priest who was one of Richard Nixon's chief defenders in the waning days of his presidency, is be- ing abolished, President Ford's chief spokesman said Tuesday. Press secretary Jerald ter- Horst told reporters he has discovered that McLaughlin is on his press office payroll. "I have no slot for that posi- tion. The way we have re- structured the press office there is no place for Father McLaughlin or anyone else in that spot. That job is going to be terHorst said. The press secretary had said last week that Father McLaughlin would soon be leaving the White House, but Father McLaughlin contended he planned to stay indefinitely. TherHorst said the priest "worked well in his assign- ri PRICES EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES. y I Coffw Mate Corned VcocUblc Oil Sweet Chunk Tuiu BONUS PACK 18 WT..
