Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta PM Heath Faces Big Fight To Stem Wage Demands ___ Weilnmday, September 7, 1970 THE IFTHBRIDGE HERALD 8 By JAMES F. KING LONDON (AP) Prime Min- ister Heath, fighting to stem the avalanche of wage demands from garbagemen to doctors, must face within a few months what could be the bellweather of pay claims. The Queen is in line for a long-standing bid that the Conservative government is committed to tackle when the new Parliament opens in seven weeks. Heath swept into power in June with a pledge to halt infla- tion, which he blamed on the Labor government of Harold Wilson. Ironically one of the pledges Wilson made if re-elected was to review royal the Conservatives at tire time went along with him. Terence Lancaster, political editor of The-People, mass-cir- culation Sunday newspaper, raises the issue: "The government's dilemma is how to reconcile giving a rise to Buckingham Palace while Irving to damp down other claims, for the Tory strategy depends on holding the wages front." TIMING IS BAD Lancaster, whose newspaper leans to the left but is a stout defender of the monarchy, sug- gests the issue of the Queen feeling the inflationary pinch "couldn't come at a worse time for the government." "Quite apart from the unde- stability of involving royalty in politics, any move to give more to the Queen will coincide with big claims from a number of leading unions. "And the average worker's reaction to hair-raising stories of how the cost of living is hit- ting the Queen is enlirclv too'." Prince Philip hinted at the need for a pay raise for his wife on an American television pro- gram last November when he said the royal budget was "run- ning hi the red." A storm blew up hi Britain and Wilson promised to name an all-party Parliament com- mittee to see about boosting the royal allowances. TAKE OVER YACHT? Within the last few weeks there's been talk of the Conserv- ative government, taking over the royal yacht Britannia and using it as a naval hospital ship. Elizabeth, Britain's wealthiest woman and rated to be worth up to million, is banned by tradition from involvement in any debate over royal finances. She gets million a year in government free. She also receives about in income from her es- tates, also tax free. Unlikely many other heads of state, whose government's share in expenses, she alone must foot the bill for Buck- ingham Palace with 400 aides and the rest of the royal trap- pings. It has been suggested the Queen should be paid a straight salary and royal institutions fi- nanced like any other govern- ment department. MUST KEEP DISTANCE But one royal specialist ra- plained: "Apart from obvious constitu- tional executive and the monarch are supposed to keep their would probably destroy _ the monarchy within a generation." The tabloid Sun a month ago conducted a poll on whether tire Queen "should be given a rise." Vour out of every five readers who replied said no. A row is certain to blow up in Parliament. William Hamilton, a Scottish MP and a dedicated republican, lias served notice IB wants Par- liament hearings on the royal fi- nances held in public. Calling the monarchy "a cor- rupting influence in he said: "They say the Royal Family worthwhile as a tourist at- traction. Well, all right, let us make it a real tourist attrac- tion. Let us open Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle to the public. Let us show the royal paintings in specially-built galleries around the country." BoyZe's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Mem- ory is the keystone to the greatness of human life. Happy is he who can enjoy the garden of his memories1 without too much sadness, re- crimination, or regret. You've got a pretty extensive mem- ory garden yourself if you can look back and remember when: Temporary Layoff At Gold Mine YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) An accident at one of the two gold mines in this north era capital has caused a tem- porary layoff of 150 men, it was announced today. A. J Richardson, operations superintendent for Cominco's Con Mine, said it will take at least 10 days to get the mine back to full operation after two tons of ore fell down a shaft Sunday. The fall ripped out vail plates and timbers between the shaft's 500 and 800-foot levels. He said a dumping chute at the surface apparently became plugged and the ore overflow- ed back into the shaft where it fell free for the first 500 feet. Ken Euchner, president of the Steelworkers Union, Local 802, said the t emporary layoff "shouldn't cause too many prob- lems among the minsrs." The mine employs about 250 people. Richardson said Giant Yellowfcnife Mines Ltd. has of- fered assistance to repair the damaged shaft and that some timber will have to be obtain- ed from the west coast. Some work will continue mak- ing use of ore previous stock- piled, he said. Prescribed Love WARSAW (Reuters) A shapely blonde in the Polish town of Kielce was examined by a doctor and given a prescrip- tion. Only after a pharmacist told her he couldn't fill it.did she notice what the doctor had scrawled: "I would very much like to see you at six o'clock to- Bight." LARGEST SAIL SCHOOL CALGARY (CP) Vancou- ver and the Maritimes may brag of their nigged coastlines and bracing sea breezes, but this landlocked city 700 miles from the nearest ocean has the largest sailing school in Canada. Phil Under, school director at the Glenmore Yacht Club, says the school is the largest regis- tered with the Canadian Yacht- ing Association and is the only one west of Winnipeg qualified to train and test future sailing instructors. Film star Jimmy Cagney was a Broadway hoofer and Rex Harrison was selling au- tomobiles in London. Chorus girls were built more like heifers than ponies. Mothers didn't have much to say on Monday night be- cause their mouths were sore from holding wooden clothes- pins all afternoon while they hung up the week's wash1 to dry on the backyard line. More horses were driven than ridden, and more farm- ers were gored by bulls than hurt in tractor accidents. A man could go through life without being told by his' doc- tor that what lie needed1 was more exercise. It was something of a dis- grace for a fellow to lose bis job, and if he changed jobs more than once or twice during his working career, he was suspected of being un- dependable. No matter how much trou- ble a husband had with his wife, the neighbors tended to Ire on his side if he was what they called "a good provi- der." That was about the highest tribute a married man could receive. SHAVING HAZARDOUS When you saw a teen-aged lad with a bandage on his nose or ear, you could figure he had been secretly trying to shave with his dad's straight razor. One of the problems a boy in a large family had before going to sleep was where to hide a fresh wad of chewing gum so that none of his broth- ers could find it and steal it overnight. When a middle-aged patient in the 1920s came limping in with a twisted knee, the doc- tor knew without asking that he had been trying to learn that new-fangled Charleston. Sharing the bounty in most well-to-do households was a timid "poor a mousy, colorless creature, usually female, who fled to her attic room when an argu- ment started and never dared at mealtime to reach out her fork for the last piece of meat on the platter. A juvenile delinquent was a smart-alec kid who sat in the front row during the era of the silent movies ane threw spitballs at the lady piano player. Nine out of 10 working men felt they would never have a financial worry the rest of their lives if they could ever earn a week. Those were the member? Police Bombed NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (AP) Two fire bombs were thrown at the police station early TueS' day, knocking out communica- tions for a short period and damaging a motorcycle and a clothes' locker. Police said a youth seen running from the scene was arrested after two of- ficers fired shots at him. Mile.

Water Supply Protest Ends FROG LAKE (CP) Indian parents on the Frog Lake Re serve Tuesday allowed I h c i r children to attend school at nearby Hcinsburg ending a pro- test about what they said was the reserve's inadequate water supplies. The parents, on [lie reserve ICO miles east of Edmonton, kept their children out of school last week complaining there were not enough wells on the reserve and that they were of- ten f o r c c d to use "polluted" slough water. As a result, the parents said the children could not bathe fre- quently and were kept out of school so thsy would not be in- sulted. A spokesman for the parents said a teacher had referred to one child as a "dirty little ani- mal." Reserve parents met Indian affairs department representa- tives Friday and, following dis cussions, decided to end the school boycott. The parents were told 13 wells were drilled on the reserve, the maximum allowed by this year's budget. However, there were delays connecting electric pumps to the wells. V. G. Boullbcc, superinten- dent of the Saddle Lake-Atha- basca district for Indian affairs, said the parents "put forth their concerns in a positve way." He said the meeting was an Indication the reserve had start- ed "to develop more leader- ship." Two federal schools on tho reserve were scheduled to open Wednesday.
