Delivery Coll 328-6133 Call EDMONTON Ignore NDP leader Grant Notley. Mr. Nottey says Socred leader Werner Schmidt has absolutely no chance in the world of winning the Calgary Foothills bydection. The only question, says the NDP chief, is how many votes Mr. Schmidt will lose compared with the last Socred candidate who contested the seat. But experts like ?.Ir. Not- ley have been surprised be- fore. Nobody gave Mr. Schmidt a hope of winning the party leadership in February over the favorite, former educa- tion minister Bob Clark. The vast majority of ob- servers prcdidcd Mr. Sch- midt would pass up the Cal- gary Foothills contest a battic that looks very tough for him to win. Mr. Notiey goes as far as to say the Calgary university area riding is Jhe 3east like- ly of any of the 75 seats 'a the province to fall to a So- crod. Mr. Schmidt has OTrprised before, and could surprise again. Thc key to his success trill be whether Uie party rallies to his cause, There is a solid power based in the south, with a handful of able Calvary MLAs, plus Schmidt support- ers like Ray Speaker (Lattite Bow) and Bill Wyse (Medi- cine Hat-Rodcliff) who could knock on a let of doors. Many of the front bench Soorofs were for Bob Clark for the party leadership, but didn't work very hard to get their man elec'ed. If they roll up their sleeves and make the Schmidt fight a battle for the future of the party, sur- prises could be in store. Premier Lougheed is likely to call a byeketion for June or August it will depend largely on whether there is a federal election calied and make the announcement probably on the last day of the spring sitting of the leg- islature. If there is a good strong anti-government vote, it could put Mr. Schmidt in the Al- berta legislature. The per cent growth limit the provincial govern- ment set on municipal bud- gets has turned into a lovely piece of political double talk. There arc incentive grants to the municipalities that keep spending increases this year within the limit How- ever, with strong opposition to Jhe guideline from muni- cipal organizations. Munici- pal Affairs Minister Dave Russell Hacked on a rider large enough to drive a tank through. The per rent can be sidestepped, said the minis- ter, under "extraordinary" drcunKlanoes. Mr. Russell says there is no mathemati- cal formula, it's wj> to him what constitutes extraordin- ary. He has conceded a mistake in the grant to Camrose was made and has been correct- ed. There could be other mis- takes. In other words, if any municipality feds hard done by, the minister's door is open. So much for the guide- line. Sounds good though, doesn't it? Budget increases kept within per cent ex- cept now you see it now you don't. Bets are being laid on a cabinet shuffle sometime after the end of the spring sitting. The mounting pres- sure for an inquiry into the Craig case has made Attor- ney General Merv Leitch something of a pthdical liabi- lity. There's the noise from the opposition about irregularit- ties in police treatment of Edmonton Doctor David Craig. There's the Human Rights and Civil Liberties As- sociation report casti ng doubts about the lower court system. There's the usually staid Alberta Medical Asso- ciation at a rather iale hour announcing coin cern about the Craig case. And most recently the Alberta Federation of Labor making rumblings abtmt an inquiry. On top of this hangs con- cern about Alberta's legal system in the Matthews re- port found Alberta the most ponitive province in the country the Slave Lake affaars invoking the over-anxious use of the po- lice. In Ibe midst of all this. Deputy Attorney Sain Friedman announces he's packing up a long civil service career to return to private law practice. Mr. Leitch's station has become less than ideal. Some say the Calgary lawyer with tlse Hollywood good looks and competent administrat i v e style, has proven too much a Conservative for the head of a legal system in need of a good airing. It's anybody's guess who'd takeover the A.G. office, but prime candidates include Health Minister Neil Craw- ford and Education Minister Lou Hyndman. Former Soared Ireasurer Ted Hinman (Cardston) asked his first question in memory last week in the leg- islature question period whether legislation is planned to end the teachers strike. That's a measure of the pres- sure which developed here over the issue which has been discussed since the strike began March 12.

Phone 327-6565 Liberals told 'get off your butts or die CALGARY (CP) Alberta Liberals, looking for a road out of the political back- woods, used a bit of self- inspsction Saturday to see if they could find the trail. A hot-seat session during their annual convention con- sidered the party's dis- appointing electoral they havent' won a seat since sought some of the causes. Leader Bob Russell told the 230 delegates and sup- porters that the party was already being organized to eliminate one of the common complaints by delegates. Liberals in the province had traditionally considered themselves either members of the federal wing of the par ty or of the provincial wing and Mr. Russell said this has to end. "There are so few of us, we can't spread ourselves 'out." Hie results of the last fed- eral election, in which each of Alberta's 19 federal rid- ings returned a Progressive Conservative member, was evidence of this attitude's failing. The leadership had lost touch with the constituencies and to remedy the solution, the Alberta caucus commit- tee was formed with provin- cial executive members and the 19 federal riding associa- tions to plan and work with Ottawa. The hot-seat session was also told the party was not appealing to a wide-enough range of people and should make an effort to attract dif- ferent occupations. It is top- heavy with lawyers. Delegates also turned down a resolution that would have increased the age of voting delegates to 18 from 16 years. Mr. Russell said the party Is also seeking a full-time organizer, who will help es- tablish working constituency organizations in the 51 cf the 73 provincial ridings that now are inactive. Research- ers and secretarial staff were also in the plans. The provincial leader is also planning to contest a by- election in Calgary Foothills want to get in the leg- islature so bad I can taste it." Mr. Russell of St. Albert, near Edmonton, said the by- election expected in June would at least re-establish the party's presence in Cal- gary and give members chance to work together. Dave Steuart, leader of the Saskatchewan Liberal Party, addressed the delegates and offered to help in the cam- paigning if invited to give assistance. He also told them Social Credit was on the verge of disappearing and an oppor- tunity would arise for Lib- eral progress. "If you're serious, you'll displace the NDP as the op- position or you'll wither and die "If you don't get up off your butts, you'll just be sit- ting there and it'll be the NDP. "You have to work 'cause if you don't, you'll get anoth- er defeat, and if that hap- pens, you could disappear from the political spectrum, and if you do, you'll have de- served it." The vacancy in the provin- cial legislature, which now has 48 Progressive Conserva- tives, 25 Social Credit mem- bers and one New Democrat, was caused by the death of Len Werry, minister of tele- phones and utilities. Other parties are also ex- pected to contest the byelec- tion, with the. Social Credit party fielding newly chosen leader Werner Schmidt. Mr. Russell said the vote would be an "all or nothing" test for the Social Credit leader but said that did not apply to his own candidacy. "I have an obligation to the party, (to run) but I don't think the leadership is on the line."
