Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta, 1972 THE LETHMIDSC HMAIB ft The Siviss cavalry's unhorsed London Obsc-irer GENEVA Switzerland Is to lose its cavalry, alt 18 squa- drons of them. The decision now awaiting parliamentary con firmaUon was made by the Federal Coun- cil only with great hesitation, after eloquent pleas to retain at least some of the cavalry. A petition won signatures. The government case is that manpower is urgcnlly needed for effective combat units. These, it is officially stated, are only Just sufficiently man- ned for defence, under the Swiss universal compulsory military service system, with annual retraining of reservists. Horses are Icvecl In Switzer- land almost as much as in the United Kingdom or Ireland. They are still extensively used for ploughing and other agri- cultural duties on the sloping mountainside fields, and the great brewery at Rheinfelden, near Basle, has a magnificent turnout of ancient drays drawn by four horses each. In Geneva, the annual riding and jumping competition, the Concerns Hippique, Is the high- light of the autumn season and attracts competitors from all over the world. 11 culminates In a great ball at which uniforms are worn. As a tourist attrac- tion, Geneva also still has horse-drawn open carriages, scaling four for tours around the city. The horses, well-fed and solid, wear neat lace covers on their Iwads to ward off almost non-existent flies. In what can only be Ascrib- ed as a lament, a Bern com- mentator refers to the tradKkn- al popularity of the display of the Swiss cavalry, "whose squadrons vivified and lent a quality of inspiration to mili- tary parades, in contrast with1 the almost forbidding and In- human aspect of modem mech- anized troops which convey a gloomy impression of soulless clumsiness." Spock applying child-raising theory to U.S Ex- RCMP corporal Jack Ramsay, who recently attacked the in an article in Maclean's Mag- azine, said he has reached an agreement with Canada's third largest union to help organize, the RCMP. Mr. Ramsay said In a tele- phone interview from Regina that he and Claude Edwards, president of the Public Service Alliance, had made prelimin- ary plans.

It now is pressing Ottawa to permit it to organize the armed forces. same gal with him for newly half century. Yet be appeals to tbe toughest rrrohit Ion trio in tbe nation. Why? "I MCSI asked some people if I should change my conservative fan- age, if I should wear old jeans or something. They said no, just do your thing we think jou'rt honest." Honest. That's him. And among this year's presidential some say, including himself, Dr. Spock may be tha most totally honest. He does not waffle in issues: "I think homo- sexuals should be entirely D-M to do what they want as long their partners an i.uinaillin" He does not aefl out to (or support: "I am radical, but I do not in vio- lent radicalism and I don't these people who subscribe to that." He doesn't even nm around about -I haven't got a ta ba elected, I know that M I do wast to keep oor roiling." And so he runs if not pop- ularly, at least honestly.
