Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI UTHBRIDCE HERAID Tutidoy, 29, 1970 Moscow Residents Say Overthrow Of Dubcek Unfortunate But Vital Dr. Orchard said Russians can be surprisingly frank or ex- tremely reticent about political matters. Former leader Khrushchev was viewed by one man as "a disaster." Pocple generally have not made up their minds about for- mer dictator Stalin. Russians By JOAN KOViTMAN Staff Writer Hie average Russian living in Moscow feels the Sovfct over- throw in 1968 of the liberal Dub- cek regime in Czechoslovakia was "unfortunate but neces- says a recent Lethbridge visitor to the U.S.S.R. Dr. Ted Orchard spent more than four weeks this summer in the Russian capital doing re- search for a book and attend- ing the International Congress of Historical Sciences. It was his second visit to the country. Dr. Orchard, an associate professor of history at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge and a spe- cialist in Russian history, said Russians he talked with feared ties would develop between a liberal Czechoslovakia and Germany, "and the Russians still fear Germany." A non aggression treaty signed recently between Soviet Premier Kosygin and West Ger- man Chancellor Brandt dees not impress Russians. "We signed one in 1939 one man told Dr. Orchard. (Na- zi Germany broke the pact in 19-11 when it invaded the com- munist nation and prompted such incidents as the almost three year siege of Leningrad _ and the battle of age about the Time of Dr. Orchard said his first trip chev's de Stalinization pro- more than foui" years ago had rid him of a "lot of miscon- ceptions" about Russians. "I thought they would be som- bre, but they are actually ro- bust. They have a good sense of humor. They had to have one to go through what they did." MORE GOODS He said he saw immense im- provements in the availability of consumer goods compared with 1966. Most of the foreign- made items are from Iron Cur- tain countries, plus Italy, France and Belgium. There is nothing from Canada and little from the U.S. Western music, including that of the Beatles, is making in- roads although it is two years behind the North American hit parade. Latin American music has been popular "since Cuba." gram, started in 1954, are not so impressed. Dr. Orchard said the appear- ance of the former leader in a Moscow movie elicited a call of praise for him by one audience member and some joined in by applauding. "Others noticeably did not." He said the Soviet Historical Encyclopedia, which is being published in alphabetical se- quence, has been stalled for some time at the letters and presumably because an official stand has not been taken on Stalin and his on time colleague, Trotsky. Sunday appears to have be- come tte usual day off fo workers. Four years ago, wee ly holidays were D Orchard said. He said he didn't think hoh days were increasingly schec uled for Sundays because of r ligious reasons although the a titude toward church atten dance has been eased. He said "old ladies in blac attend churches by the thous ands." Still pr.esent is the pecu liar Russian personality, the "idiot usually a youn man who is allowed free reigr to break the unstated laws religious services. Dr. Orchard suggested ther was "no big religious revival' and young people still do no attend church. The state ap peavs to have taken the atti tudc that there is "no point u being anti religious just fo the sake of being so." The easing up of religious persecution may also hav come about because churche are "no longer identified wit! the Czarist regime." He said the Russians' way o life their standard of living- is approaching the west's, bu with fewer of the social prob lems now occurring in N o r t; America. Dr. Orchard said a movie o U.S. student riots and Irish re- ligious riots left Russian audi ences incredulous.

Mr. Hanimond said the city's submission would attempt to il- lustrate the possible effect of a 13 per cent rate increase on the economy. There should be particular attention paid, he said, to the repercussions it would have on the persons on fixed incomes and those in the lower income brackets. 100 Copies plus fax 7269 Third Ave, S.

Lethbridge should consider what kind of city it would like to be, and carefully channel its growth efforts ac- cordingly. Among the areas he suggest- ed that Lethbridge explore ivere the leisure industries, the service industries, education and research. More applications for region- al incentives grants have come out of Lethbridge than any oth- er community in Canada, he ;ud, and more out of Leth- sridge than the whole of Sask- atchewan. The reason, in part, was the nature of the community, vhich was an attraction to hose who decide on the loca- ion of new industries.

The shut-off date has been announced in order that re- pairs to bridges mid several major structures in the district may be proceeded with.

The shut-off date for most o! he Eastern Irrigation Dis- trict, Brooks, will be Oct. 1, vith the complete system being closed Oct. 15. Officials of the BID say the shut-off is a little earlier than in past years, but add that the system has been running continuously since last spring without a two week maintenance break as in other fears. The St. Mary River Irriga- tion District and the Taber Ir- rigation District will both close canals Oct. 20.
