    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The London "Daily Mirror"

    31st March 1970

    Milestones of the month

    by Chatty Cathy

    This was the month when Rhodesia broke away from the Empire in a manner not nearly as benign as the other dominions and colonies have seceded from us - excepting the United States breakaway in 1776, of course. The Brit Labour government (which hopefully the electorate will also non-benignly cut adrift sometime this year) took exception to Rhodesia's apartheid system, imposing all kinds of sanctions on the long-time colony, and getting up Rhodesian Premier Ian Smith's nose to the extent that he's now declared himself head of an independent republic - which the Wilson government refuses to recognize. Perhaps a new Brit government, later on, will see some sense.

    The voters in the Bridgewater by-election in March showed some sense in ousting the Labour grip on the pleasant Somerset town, and going Tory, with Tom King, this being the first time that eighteen-year olds were permitted to vote ...out of the mouth of babes and sucklings...

    Poetic justice was served in New Jersey, U.S.A. when three members of the terrorist Weatherman party blew themselves up whilst making a bomb horrifyingly intended to explode at a military dance.

    Justice was also done by President Nixon when United States Postal Service workers in New York City went on strike; after two weeks, he declared it a Corporation, no longer funded by the American taxpayers, but by private entepreneurs who would remove it from political patronage, both previous Republican and Democrat administrations placing their own unqualified blue-eyed boys at the public trough which was the U.S.postal service

    And, again, some measure of reccmpence was made in this country when a court awarded eighteen victims of thalidomide malformation nearly £370,000 by the manufacturers of the "morning sickness" pill Diagro Biochemicals Ltd, not nearly enough for so few of the thousands affected by this attempt at alleviation a nuisance encountered by pregnant females

    I won't say I told you so, but what did I tell you about higher -up brass being involved in the My Lai Massacre? 14 officers have now been charged with suppressing information related to the mass military murder. Even if the upper echelons of the American military didn't encourage such barbarity in the first place -an open question- to cover it up is equally reprehensible, giving the green light to further atrocities in that filthy war

    The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has been signed by by 56 nations. I wonder which half-dozen countries will actually observe this treaty?

    This just in; It's been reported that in Japan (where they're almost a day ahead of us), a Japan Airlines Flight with 131 passengers and 7 crew has been hijacked by Japanese Red Army members. Many of us, out of our benevolence will be uttering prayers for the passengers safety.

    I, as an Agnostic will be crossing my fingers that all passengers are eventually freed. Am I, therefor, a hypocrite? Agnostics profess to know no more than anyone else in this world, whether there's even a God to pray to("Believing" is not the same as "Knowing", People), so, just in case, what's wrong in offering a prayer, even if one feels a fool pleading with Some One who may not even be there?...just in case?

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The "Canadian Chronicle"

    April 30th, 1970

    Trudeau relieved


    Our Prime Minister must be much encouraged by the results of the Quebec provincial election announced last night. After all, his Liberal ally, Robert Bourassa romped home with a commanding 72 out of 108 Legislative seats, more than sufficient to push back the rising tide of the secessionist Parti Quebecois (PQ) and the lukewarm Federalist Union Nationale (UN).

    But it had seemed to be touch and go for a long time during the campaign, culminating in the Liberals holding only a nine percentage points over Rene' Levesqe's PQ in an opinion poll, one short week before the election, with one Montreal investment firm urging its clients to get their financial assets out of the Province fast, and the Royal Bank actually doing that, hauling nine truckloads of securities away to the solidity of the rest of Canada.

    Mr Trudeau had been beset by three adversaries in his fight to keep Quebec within Canada. One was the new French president Georges Pompidou who carried on the mischief begun by Charles de Gaulle with his cry in 1966 to French-Canadians of "Quebec vivre libre", by meddling in the affairs of the province as much as the broad stretch of the Atlantic Ocean would allow.

    Another, and the most formidable, was the PQ leader, Rene' Levesque an old friend and rival of Pierre. He had been a long-time advocate of separation by the Province, and for a while there, it looked as if his time might have come; if he had won the election, there is no doubt that he would , right away, set about organizing a referendum asking French -Canadians to vote for or against Quebec sovereignty.

    The third thorn in the Trudeau side was the current premier of the province, Jean-Jacque Bertrand, who couldn't seem to cope with the unrest that was plaguing the province this year and last, the demonstrations, rioting, and explosions caused by those believing that a new French Revolution is nigh.

    Despite the Liberal election victory last night, those dreams of sovereignty have not faded. as Mr Jean Parizeau, another leading PQ figure, prophesied after the election that the Liberal celebration was premature. For the Liberals to win this election he said "Was like waving a red flag in front of a bull"

    If that is so, we shall all have to wait and see when next the Separist bull will charge.

    The London "Daily Mirror"

    April 30th 1970

    Milestones of the month

    by Chatty Cathy

    A most eventful month, People, ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, humans at their best, and then when bereft of common sense.

    For three blokes, Americans, Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert to attempt to fly to the moon in a spacecraft named Appollo Thirteen is heroic enough, but when you're out 200, 000 miles into space and an oxygen tank blows up, and a fire breaks out, and no first-responders about when you need 'em, you've got to have some bottle to quell the fire, do without air, abort the mission, and pilot the stricken craft safely back to earth. It is so good to applaud three genuine heroes after all the ersatz ones we've been presented with lately...no names no pack drill.

    Also sublime were the Beatles - until Paul McCartney packed the group in, as he did this month. He was the heart and soul of that group, their best player, and composer of most of their innovative music, never mind the "Lennon-McCartney" appellation, John was mainly responsible for the often inane lyrics, and mostly achieved prominence by hogging the headlines about the group. Make no mistake, with McCartney out, the glorious time of the Beatles is over.

    What also seems ridiculous to me is how a Minister of the Cloth, Doctor (of Divinity !) Ian Paisley -one of those ersatz heroes-- can be so bloody-minded,in his persecution of Catholics, and can be so much a politician, that he got himself elected to the Irish Parliament this month. It could only happen in Ireland, I suppose.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Paisley

    The alleged remains of Hitler and company made the news again this month. I still don't believe the story (spun by the Germans) of his "suicide" I believe that he is alive and well and laughing that we tamely let him get away with mass murder. We're ridiculous here, for accepting that glib piece of history so readily.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    Guess how many people there are in the United States a hundred million?...150 million?...according to the latest census taken Over There, it's a whopping 206,000,000. Wow, all those people in that small space on the map.

    And the good old sublime Morris Minor won't be running around in our own, even smaller space, much longer...Leyland Motors aren't making any more of them, concentrating, instead on a larger model four-door saloon and a three-door fastback coupe, with possibly a five-door station-wagon by 1975

    And the most ridiculous senseless act of the month was made by U.S. President Richard Nixon who was elected on a pledge to end the war in Asia instead of which, he is escalating the current bloodbath by invading Cambodia to drive the Commies out of there.

    That's going from the ridiculous to the gorblimey!

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    April 1970

    "Ya hoax 'em a little"


    On his return from Florida where he had been studying Spring Training with Dan Conway, Valentine was dumbfounded when Evelyn Hanby, the girl of his dreams, declined his invitation to edit his essay on "Writing and editing" as required by their teacher Miss Vines.

    "It's been in your pocket a long time..." observed the immaculate Miss Hanby, eyeing the rather grubby, very rumpled, folded paper which the boy presented. "...Besides..." she sniffed "...I only read serious stuff...you're too frivolous"

    Valentine gaped; his profound dissertations on morality, the human psyche; what life is about, too frivolous? "Um, Miss Vines likes 'em" He countered, feebly.

    "Miss Vines is employed to stroke our egos..." the girl pronounced firmly "...so that we grow up to be full of ourselves ...she is required by the School Board to concern herself with style rather than substance...for her, you can write all the nonsense you wish as long as you dot the eyes and cross the tees"

    "Okay, then..." Valentine hid his mortification, put the paper back in his pocket, and prepared to remount the bicycle on which he'd overtaken the girl, they being both on their way home from school "...Sorry to bother you"

    "There's one thing you can do...." Evelyn remarked as he looked up, hopefully. She indicated his bike "...Give me a ride home to Riverside Rd"

    Valentine gaped anew "We can't ride tandem...he protested pointing at his machine "It a "bi" cycle..." he now went into his lecturing mode "..."Bi meaning a two-wheeler - a bicycle built for one"

    Evelyn sniffed again "For a writer, you have no imagination, do you?.... " In other circumstances Valentine would have been amused at this sixteen-year old (Evelyn Hanby, like himself was an Advanced Student, up with the Twelth Grades) enunciating as if she were sixty - a born actress.

    It was her turn to lecture "I could sit astride the saddle..."she indicated her form fitting jeans which did wonders for her shapely legs and hips "... And if you'e any sort of cyclist, you could pedal, standing up"

    Valentine looked at her "This girl drives a hard bargain..." he thought "..she's attractive to guys, and she knows it...she's playing hard to get"

    Then he smiled, relieved. This girl really liked him. Otherwise she wouldn't scoff at his finest literary work, would not instruct him on how to ride a push-bike, would not demand that he toil awkwardly on it, two miles out of his way to deliver her home, where she would probably just push him off with a mere thank-you- and-fare-thee-well. Well,he could live with all that if this gorgeous girl liked him.

    He picked up his bike "Be sure to hang onto my waist, okay, Eve...?" he ventured to use her nickname. She nodded; he was making progress "...I'm a pretty fast rider "...Let's go, eh?"

    Behind him, her hair streaming in the wind,as they tore through the streets of Winnipeg for Valentine proved, indeed to be a sturdy, energetic cyclist, Evelyn Hanby was smiling like some Cheshire cat, while the words of a popular song ran through her head.

    "Oh, ya hoax 'em a little, and you coax 'em a little,
    And you veer from bully to 'poor me'
    Oh, ya hoax 'em a little, and you coax 'em a little
    And they fall like an apple off a tree"
    "Whate'er should be our Zodiac's star
    We all are born to make or mar.
    To each is gi'en a bag of tools
    Some mentors, and a set of rules:
    And each must carve, ere life has flown,
    A stumbling block, or a stepping-stone"

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The Quebec City "Le Chanticleer"

    May 1st 1970

    We shall prevail

    by Val Mercier

    So, the Federalists won the Provincial election this time, but we gave them a scare. It is only a matter of time, that the rest of Quebecois will come to their senses and vote for a sovereign Quebec.

    The odds are with us if you believe these three maxims.(A) "The race is to the swift", (B)"God is on the side of the big battalions",(C) "Only the brave deserve the fair"

    (A) The chances of the PQ winning the race in the next election, whenever the jittery Liberals dare to call it, are good; in this past election M. Levesque, a week before polling-day, was a mere nine percentage points behind the Liberals and the Anglo financial community was panicking, the moneymen advising their clients to pull their money out of the Province, and the Royal Bank actually moving truckloads of financial instruments of of Quebec's vaults, irresponsibly trying to beggar the people therein, the "Dog in the manger syndrome".

    (B) There is little doubt that we Sovereigntists have the numbers, at the last census there were four French Canadians to one of every other nationality, Anglo or immigrant, residing in the Province. If all the Qubecois voted - and they have far more incentive to cast a ballot than the average foreign voter, who losing the mandate, can, after all, drift off and go with the Federalists in the rest of Canada leaving us victorious Sovereigntists in peace.

    (C) Only one thing can obstruct our ascenscion to power, and that is fear of losing our "perks". The Federalists think to bribe us by throwing scraps that they withhold from the rest of Canada. They patronize us with their transfer payments, they promise us our own language, our own tax-system, our own immigration laws; they stroke our egos by pointing out that the Federal party who holds Quebec, Liberal, Conservative or New Democratic Party, holds the country of Canada.

    It is time to be brave and loose that Federal hold, Citizens, taking over our own Sovereign nation. We must be brave and give up these perks with which the Liberals, and the other Federal parties tempt us to stay. It is true for a while after separation, we shall miss, especially, the transfer payments, but the Federalists have taught us well, the art of deficit spending, so we shall not long be the poorer for being free of the Federal yoke.

    Sovereignty will mean tough sledding, at first; but to us proud Quebecois, it will be worth it!

    "Whate'er should be our Zodiac's star
    We all are born to make or mar.
    To each is gi'en a bag of tools
    Some mentors, and a set of rules:
    And each must carve, ere life has flown,
    A stumbling block, or a stepping-stone"
