Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tueiday, September M, 1979 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID II Biggest Drugstore May Branch Out CALGARY CP) In 1954 Lcn Friedman had a problem, but being an enterprising young man of 24 he turned it into a bonanza. His father became ill and the youngster had to take over op- eration of the family's small, cramped drugstore. He was studying pharmacy at the University of British Colum- bia and wasn't qualified to han- dle drugs. However, he quit school, hired a pharmacist, and has never looked back. Today he is president of Super S Drugs, which he claims is the biggest and mast active drug- store in Canada wilh a gross of million a year. The store is open until mid- night seven days a week and has a parking lot which covers a block and a half. When he took over the busi- ness he knew thai to pay a qual- ified pharmacist he had to boost sales and stock, but to do this he had to more space. BUOYED BY SUCCESS He bought the adjoining store, cut out the dividing wall, in- creased his business improved. Buoyed by the success, he de- cided that business would im- prove even more if the store had a parking lot. So he pulled down his house which was on the same again busi- ness improved. Then he decided to "jazz up" the place with neon lights and a large signboard. He made a point of putting what he called "kookie" messages on the board. People apparently no- ticed them, and the Super S messages became frequent talk around the city. In Nov e m b e r, 19G4, a new store on the same site was opened, but by 1967 more space was needed. Mr. Friedman ex- cavated under tte main store and the parking lot to provide a basement store bigger than the main store. ..In 1964 and 1965 competitors tried unsuccessfully to prevent Super S from staying open until midnight: seven nights a week. City council attempted to put more teetli in its early-closing bylaw. The fight even reached the provincial legislature where Al- berta's health minister "had the good sense" said one news- paper editorial, to withdraw a bii: which would have limited drugstore ownership to qualified pharmacists. With the aid of innovations such as a computerized charge account and credit card systems, Mr. Friedman has continued at- tracting new customers. He is planning to give the company a financial shot in tire arm by going public and selling shares. With added funds new locations will be set ap in Cal- gary and other'parts of Alberta. Long-range plans include other parts of Canada too. Controversy Rages In Britain Pearson Gives UN Plea For World Disarmament UNITED NATIONS' (CP) A Declaration on Peace and Dis- armament, signed by former prime minister Lester B. Pear- son of Canada and four other Nobel Peace Prize winners, was presented to the United Nations Monday. It said this is a time of "disquiet and fear" instead of a time of celebration. In a general plea for world disarmament, the declaration said: "It is only too easy to under- stand why a decline of general interest, sometimes a sense of cynicism; and even a feeling of despair, have begun to cloud the efforts of nations to bring mean- ing to disarmament. "The world remains divided. Violence spreads. The Middle East and Southesst Asia are ravaged by war. New conflicts threaten. Distrust, tension and violence, not peace and disarm- ament, seem the reality of today." The declaration was handed QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE 378-7684M to Secretary-General U Thant and Edvard Hambro, president of the General Assembly, by Pearson as part of the UN's 25th anniversary celebrations. It was signed by Pearson, 1957 Peace Prize winner; Linus Pauling, U.S., 1962 winner; Lord John Boyd Orr, Britain, 1949 winner; Rene Cassin, France, 1968 winner; and Philip Noel- Baker Britain, 1959 winner. The other living Peace Prize winner, Ralph Bunche of the U.S., UN undersecretary-gen- eral and 1950 recipient, did not sign the declaration although he supported it. He said his posi- tion in the UN precluded his signing it. The leather-bound declaration said nothing less than world dis- armament will "rescue man- kind from international anarchy and war." It mentioned that total world expenditure for military pur- poses in 1962 was mil- lion. By 1969, this figure had risen to million and the "mad momentum" of the nu- clear arms race was still con- tinuing. It said the world had lulled it- self into state of mind which accepts armaments and the di- version of resources which they imply. LONDON (AP) A sharp controversy has flared over the decision by Home Secretary Re- ginald M a u d 1 i n g compelling Rtidi Dutschke, a former leader of left-wing students in West Germany, to leave Britain be- fore Sept. 3d. Dutsclike, shot in the head in an assassination attempt on April 11, I960, came to Britain eight months later and was ulti- mately allowed to stay provided he avoided political activity and any paid employment. Friends say lie has scrupu- lously abided by this ruling, al- though he is reported to have been visited by West Germans sympathetic to the revolution- ary views he championed in the jstreet demonstrations that shook the federal republic prior to the attempt on his life. Dutschke now has been given leave to appeal Maudling's ex- pulsion decision, which is being attacked as everything from "un-Britisli" to a move ill-ad- vised on tactical grounds. At least one opponent of the expulsion order, asserting that Dutschke still suffers from the affects of the assassination at- tempt, said that Canada. France, Belgium and the United States all have refused to give the West German sanctuary. MOVE DRAWS PRAISE His acceptance as a graduate student at Cambridge Univer- sity was hailed in some quart- ers as one more example of the way Britain traditionally hae provided revolutionary wander- ers from the European conti- nent, including Karl Marx him- self, with a place for study and tranquillity. Maudling In announcing his decision on the Dutschke case last week, condemned what he called the principle "that people who come to this country should do so on the basis that they re- frain from any activities which are lawful for the ordinary cifr zen." Hostile explanations of the home secretary's move sug- gested that he was trying to pla- cate the right wing of the gov- erning Conservative party, after a June 18 election victory in which the issue of law and order as against social "permis- siveness" played a role of some substance. The home secretary has said Dutsclike's period of convalesc- ence from brain injuries is com- plete arid "we should put a term to his stay in this country for that purpose." But sympathizers with the Dutsclike's plight say his re- covery is far from total.

(AP) A pounc instrument plat- form which scientists fcured was lost when the balloon carrying it aloft went astray lias been returned to the Uni- versity of California physics laboratory from Saskatchewan for study. The platform launched from Minneajwlis Sept. 4 by n team of National Aeronautics and Space Administration and JC physicists headed by Dr. P. Buford Price. It was carried by a huge plastic balloon to a leight of feel. The 600 foot balloon, buoyed wilh 20 million cubic feet of he- ium, drifted westward out of radio contact range and scicn- ists were unable to release ihe >ayload by remote control. Tiie balloon floated over the Pacific and lu.d been givon up or lost when it reappeared last fliursday about feet over Crescent City, Caiif. Friday morning it was sight- ed over the Prairies and near Regina a utility pole brushed ;he payload from the balloon. KCMP guarded it against sou- venir hunters until UC gradu- ate student Ed Shirk and NASA jersonnel recovered the instru- ments. Price said the platform "suf- fered only minor damage tlie experiment was almost a complete success." The instrument package con- tained nuclear emulsions and sensitive film on which the scientists hoped to detect pres- ence of superheavy elements. Their theory is that explo- sions of dying stars may have put into cosmic rays traces of elements heavier than any now known. Analyzing the data will be a lengthy task. Price said it would "keep my team busy for at least six months." Lee Lasby, 15, was alerted by his father who saw the balloon in the air. Lee followed the bal- loon on his bicycle and saw it crash. "I saw it hit the power pole and then the balloon and the package he said. "The balloon went straight up and the package came straight down." Lee took a tag off the pack- age on the ground and tele- phoned the owner, Winzen Re- search Inc. of Minneapolis. INCREASE JN DEATHS.
