Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta I THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wciliimdoy, Suplombcr 30, 1970-------- Airline President Raps Charter Flight Club Rule IVINMl'KC tCT) Air char- ter flights would not require travellers lo belong to a club or organization, as is ne- ccisary. if Max Ward, pres- ident of VVardair Canada Ltd., set Ihe rules. "The whole concept is ridic the pr.esident of Ihe Ed monlon-based charter airline said here. Mr Ward's company, one of Canada's largest charier opera- tions, will lake about 95.000 per- Hebreiu University Back At Old Site Dy WALTER SCIIW.MIX (London Observer Service) JERUSALE.M The Israelis are determined to keep Jerusa- lem united and nowhere is this more apparent than in their plans for the Hebrew Uni- versity. Its magnificent site on Mount Scopus was originally in j the Eastern thai is Arab j part of the city. Now that this! has been annexed to Israel to form a unified city, Uic Univer-1 sity has vclmT.ed (o the site' and is buiJding a modeniisile, campus there. A million master plan has just been com- pleted, providing for a finished campus by 1975. accommoda- ting 13.500 students. The Mount Scopus site is far from new. Tins is Ihe foundation stone (or Ihe iivst Hebrew University in modern times was laid in 1918 by Hie Zionist leader Dr. Chaim Weiz- mann. On that occasion mann was visibly moved by Ihe "unforgettable a n d sublime beauty" of the site and this has scarcely diminished. I The amphitheatre, carved out of rock and commanding a view of the Judean hills right down, past Jericho to the Dead Sea, was also the scene of the open- ing ceremony in 1925. aUend- ed by hundreds of Jewish, Brit- ish and Arab notables. At that stage the university consisted of three small re- search institutes for chemis- try, microbiology and Jewish studies. By tire time the State of Israel came into existence 22 years later the university on Mount Scopus had a Faculty of Humanities and a Faculty of Science, with schools of medi- cine, agriculture and education as well as ths Jewish National Library with its half-a-million volumes. There were stu- dents. Then came the 19J8 war. It divided Jerusalem, cutting Mount Scopus off from Israel. The 1949 armistice agreement provided for free movement be- tween the two, and specifically laid down that Mount Scopus was to remain a Jewish en- clave, and that "normal func- tioning of the cultural and hu- manitarian institutions, and free access thereto" should be allowed. But the agreement proved unworkable in condi- tions of war. Throughout 18 years only Fortnightly convoys ot policemen and university staff were allowed to visit Scopus from West Jerusalem. Most of (he books in the Na- tional Library were brought back in small parcels in the convoys. But the hospital and the university buildings gather- ed dusl and mildew. Meanwhile a new campus had arisen at Givat Ram. another hill on Ihe Weslern side of the city. Gival Ham was meant to be temporary, and was origin- ally di'jigiied for students. Today it has grown into a huge and handsome campus, accom- mcdaling students. The Six Day War dramatical- ly reunited Jerusalem and the Hebrew University. Some of Ihe buildings on Mount Scopus were found (o have deteriorated so much they had to be pulled down. But reconstruction stari- ed almost at once. The 1969-70 academic year ended with students already in residence on Mount Scopus, housed in prefabricated huts, or in the old medical school, which has been converted into a hostel. Within five years Mount Sco- pus will house 12.5110 students of science, law and the human- ities. centre of gravity of the university will progressive- ly move back to its original home, and it is for this (hat we have designed a completely caw campus." Mr. Avraham Harmon, the university's Pres- ident, told me. "Our opportunities for growth will not be used primarily to increase the number of stu- dents: in fact, this should level off at about including about 5.000 students from abroad. What is important to is is to urrease the propor- tion of post-graduates. This is now 25 per cent: it needs to be higher." Mount Scopus has a unique status. It is an enclave in East Jerusalem which the Arab pop- ulation and the Arab world continues to regard as Arab. Even Ihe land is, for the most part, indisputably Jewish owned, as it has been since be- fore the birth of Israel. How- ever, expansion plans have in- volved some expropriation of Arab land. The original area in 194B comprised some 25 acres a quarter of the present area. But Jewish landowners have suffered most of the ex- propriation. Arabs have suffer- ed the loss of less than 20 acres a small fraction of their losses in other parts of East Jerusalem due to Israeli hous- ing projects. sons to destinations mainly in Europe and the far east in 1970, and Mr. Ward quick to admit many will not be conforming to the charier "affinity" regula- tion laid doira by Ihe A1TA. Hie Ail-lines, Inlernalional Trade Association. Tlie rule states that to qualify for the lower charier lares, passengers must be members of groups which were formed for pin-poses other than travel. The most common infraction is clubs' filling unsold charter seals with- people wlw have never belonged to tile sponsor- ing group. Another means used to cir- cumvent the rule is to eslab- lisha a front club. .Mr. Ward said "it has been estimated that [JQ per cent of charier flights depart with some discrepancy in the make-up of their passenger lists." "It is impossible to monitor the A1TA regulation that there must be some affinity between charter he said. "As an airline, we can't check every passenger to see whether he or she is a genuine member of the chartering group." He added the airlines "should do away the rule. A change in the regulation Mr. Ward said, "would involve the consent of both airlines and governments around the world." "I am confident that Car.ada would go along with this type of he said, "but ihe rest of the world would not." "The U.S., for example, seems to like the status quo be- cause it can use the charter airlines to bring pressure on the scheduled carriers." Mr. Ward suggested the Ca- nadian government could con- trol the growth of non-schedul- ed carriers by limiting annual passenger volume. But he said there is little chance for immediate removal of the affinity rule because of the difficulties in getting neces- sary approval for a change from the variety of world gov- ernments and airlines. GM Boosts Car Prices OSHAWA, Ont (CP) Gen- eral Motors of Canada Ltd. an- nounced here an average increase of or 1.6 per cent on 1071 passenger car prices. Changes range from a de- crease of in the price of the hardtop Chevrolet Corvette to an increase of ?432 for the Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limou- sine. Prices for optional equip- ment are increased an aver- age 5.1 per cent, the company said in a statement. All 1971 models include pollu- tion-control devices as stan- dard equipment. WASTE NOT, WANT NOT Curtis Silwa, a 16-year-old Brooklyn with some of his collection, started picking up reusable trash in high school student, stands to be richer after he turns in the five and paration for an environmental group's "Trash Is Cash" Campaign, a half Ions of solid waste he collected during the summer.

Patricia's abso- lute factors sought out Don's psychological valences. Don's physical inventory nestled with Patricia's interests and attitudes. Click. Deep in the heart of the computer, love blossomed, Patricia, 31, was a divorcee with two children. She had tried finding suitable dates every other way when she heard about computer dating, and figured she had nothing to lose, Don, 40, a bachelor, admit- ted he was lonely and shy and wasn't having the best of luck in finding the kind of woman he wanted. Operation Match, a computer date finder in Great Neck, N.Y., got them together. The computer people got for their service. Don and Pa- tricia got each other. Four months after they were matched, they married. The computer date finder has become the space-age al- ternative to the blind date and the marriage broker. Today, more than couples can thank their lucky cards for their mates. ANSWER QUERIES Trusting the electronic Cupid, Patricia and Don Bris- son of Belair Bluff, Fla., found each other by answer- ing 110 true-false and multi- ple-choice questions divided into categories such as psy- chological I make up my mind, I seldom change it. True or and specific culture and gardening? Com- munity service? bridge? "Don had just about every- thing I was looking said Patricia. "We both liked classical music, fishing and reading. "And f do think that similar interests help keep a good marriage." Married now for 2% years, Pat adds: "As you do things together you become more and more companionable and that's really a large part of a successful maiTiagc." Couples who have married their computer dates insist that the computer was merely an aid in brineing them to- gether. As the founder of On- eration M-tch, Stephen Mil- grim. likes to sav: "We Cre- ate Ihe and the res': is im to von." Milgrim. 45, an-ees that corttmon interests are part of Meal marine. But. adds: "Ppnnle have rcrlpin wants and needs that are much more important than compatible interest in sports or music. And that's what the computer tries to match up." As to exactly how the matching works, he declines to elaborate. Anyway, it does. Milgrim is one. of the few survivors of the many who went into the elec- tronic dating game in the '60s. Who uses the computer dat- ing and mating system? By now, nearly five million Americans have programmed their wants and needs and in- terests and let the cards fall where they will. It was a big college fad in ths '60s, but now less than one per cent of undergraduates use the computer to find a Saturday night date, perhaps because the cost has gone from to ?20. But more than 77 per cent of -computer dat- ers have college degrees and another 21 per cent have gone on to higher education. Today, more than 35 per cent who enrol in Operation Match are divorced and the majority of marriages have taken place between those in the 30 lo 40 age bracket. The computer can and does make mistakes. One boy was matched up with his sister, and it is not infrequent that divorced partners find each other again.
