Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta lolurdoy, Sepltmber 19, 1970 LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Coast Students Discover What Canada Is All About TORONTO (CP) A cross Canada hitch-hiking trip thi summer had all tl.c beauty of a National Film Board production and the hostility of Easy Ride for university students Glen Murray, 23, and his wife Gayle 22. They say Uieir trip from here to Vancouver and back gave them the good, the bad and thi ugly of what Canada is al about. But what Glen and Gayle saw of some Canadians, particularly on the Prairies, left a differen idea of Canada and gaps be twcen people. One incident reminded them of the final scenes of the movie Easy Rider in which two motor Pearl gets invited to a lot of Porphyry Pearl that is. A lirjtit, bubbly wine that's helped toast a host of brides lately. Why? Because Porphyry Pearl's clear pearly colour, zesly bubbles, and nol-loo-sweet, not-loo-dry taste... all add up to a delicious and eye-appealing treat. And maybe it's because, served at the right temperature F.) Porphyry Pearl Is amazingly like champagne. Imported from the vineyards of Australia, this is fine light wine you can serve with pride and confidence. For an occasion such as toasting thE bride. Or simply a private toast at home. Because Porphyry Pearl is pure wine... made 100% from grapes. Porphyry Pearl create] its own bubbles all by itself. Porphyry Pearl... in a champagne glass' Served cold, it speaks a warm welcome. cyclists touring America are killed by shotgun blasts from a moving truck. "When we ran into hassles, it was with people who didn't really meet us, didn't talk face to face, but passed us said Glen. From Toronto west to Van- couver they didn't have too much trouble getting rides and finding places lo stay at night. Hut on the way back they en- countered another kind of Cana- dian. CALGARY WAS START It started in Calgary where they said the youth hostel was like a shelter in a hostile envi- ronment.' "We were practically thrown out of one restaurant, because of my hair and grubby appear- ance, I says Glen. "Ev- erything was tense, in the hos- tel, on the streets, all over Cal- gary." Glen was deliberately "set up" wliile he and Gayle were walking along a street wlien "an average-looking guy" el- bowed Glen in the stomach in an apparent attempt to provoke a fight as a police car drove by. "The cops didn't see the cow- boy nit me, but they would have had us at once if I had hit Glen says. "Sure, it was because of my long hair, that's obvious. But there's more. "It's a sort of fright. People out there have a fear of long hair, and the kind of different life it represents. They see n as irresponsible. "They said we were irrcspon sible for travelling while ihs were in tougher times; the said Trudeau was irresponsible our profs were irresponsible Everything hung on their ide WERE HARASSED For several hours, on a fe'atur day night in the middle of th Praires, they were harasse< insulted and frightened by car passing them. "People would slow down, an spit at us or jerk .their thum and says Glen. "It jus didn't seem real. "When a huge trailer true stopped, on the other side of th road, and this guy started yel ing questions at us, and warne us not to be arourd there 'nex time' I think we felt we'd ha' it." Later, a pickup truck cam ay and they were asked wher they were going. When Gle laid Medicine Hat one of Ih occupants growled "that' where he's going too" an shoved a youth of about 13 ou of the cab. The man had a shot on his lap. The men in the truck left aw the youth walked down the high way without explanation a Glen recalled "that whole fina scene from Easy iust so vivid. The movie jus seemed all so logical, so true." "I know now it does happen iVe've been through it now. It', just iu meaningless." Plight Of Soviet Science Outlined In New Book LONDON (AP) Soviet sci- entists are forced to take a back seat to Western researchers be- cause of severe restrictions on freedom of scientific inquiry in the Soviet Union, says a smug- gled book written by a noted Russian scientist who was put in a mental hospital last spring jecause of his views. The manuscript was published Thursday by Macmillan and Co. n Russian. By Dr. Zhores A. Vfedvedev, it is called The Med- vedev Papers: The Plight of So- viet Science. English versions will be published next year. Medvedev, a 45-year-old ge- neticist, was detained in a men al hospital for three weeks last May because he challenged the government. He was released after protests from fellow Rus- sian scientists, but at the mo- MALE UNIVERSITY UNDER GRADUATES ARE YOU A LEADER?

Maitland B. Stcinkopf, chair- man of the Centennial Corpora- tion, sponsors of two other cen- tennial year sweepstakes, said Hie million dollar sweepstake is one of several plans under consideration for the sweep- stake wrap-up. He said a decision will be made early next week to de- cide which plan will be Mow- ed, but if the million-dollar sweepstake is used, ten ticket- holders would win a year for 200 years. In addition, there would be a number of smaller prizes in the final sweepstake, he said. He indicated that one method of making a lump-sum pay- ment to winners would be to give the prizes as bonds, which could be sold with the purchaser receiving annual interest from the bond. Money, Defence Spending Culs Aircraft Industry Is In Tailspin TORONTO (CP) Tight money and defence spending culs in the United States have combined to throw Canada's aircraft industry into a tailspin.. Several thousand Canadian in- dustry workers have been laid off as contracts and subcon- tracts for aircraft components become scarce. President F. P. Mitchell of Orenda Ltd., Toronto, a manu- facturer of jet engines, says he sees "very little aerospace growth in the next decade in Canada." His company recently laid off 300 of its employees. An- other 300 are expected to be laid off soon. The aircraft industry in Can- ada employs a total of about and generates shipments of about S700 million a year. Purchasing reductions are widespread among the indus- try's major lines, U.S. aJid Canadian de- fence departments and private corporations which buy aircraft for business purposes. CANADAIR HIT Canadair Ltd. of Montreal is one of the companies hit hard- est by the nerospaee slump. Since the beginning of the year. Canadair has reduced its work force to from Com- pany officials expect to continue layoffs at a rale of 40 to 50 a week if new contracts are not received. Canadair is currently hoping to drum up business with a new water-bomber it has produced. The Quebec and French gov- ernments have already bought 30 of the CL-215 aircraft and Canadair hopes to persuade the Canadian government that it needs a national fire-fighting fleet. Another project, fhc CL-89 surveillance drone, is a poten- tial source of business. It is classed as a "non-offensive and is capable of scanning several miles of ter- rain and obtaining detailed pho- tographs. NATO countries have already bought 282 of these. Other Canadian aerospace contractors have experienced similar difficulties. United Aircraft of Canada Ltd., Montreal has reduced its staff by about 500 to Fairey Co., of Dartmouth, N.S. closed repair shops, putting out of work. One exception to the wide- spread malaise is Douglas Air- craft of Canada. The Toronto- based company is producing 90- foot wing sections for a DC-10 airliner contract it holds. It is also producing wing and tail sections for DC-Ss and hopes to increase its work force in the next few months. The aerospace industry in Canada has always been subject to great fluctuations. Two years ago it enjoyed a healthy boom. In 1968 the pro- duction rate of the industry in- creased 25 per cent over the previous year and orders for about million poured into the country, mostly from UK United States: DIVIDENDS By T1IE CANADIAN PRESS John Labatt Lid., common 18 cents, Oct. 15, record Sent. 18; series A pfd. 25 cents, Nov. 15, record Oct. 23.
