It's with admiration tinged with curiosity that observers here watch MLAs like Bob Clark Al- bert Ludwig (SC Calgary Mountain View )snd Grant Npttey (NDP-Spirit Kiver-Fair- view) present thoughtful, well researched and even badly needed pieces of legislation Mr. Ludwig's latest effort was the Public Officials Dis- closure Act, 1973. There was even a blank space left for the date the bin will be as- sented to. Initiative of that order is uncommon. Premier Lougheed let Mr. Ludwig know in no uncertain terms that thsre was absol- utely no way the premier was going to be upstaged by an opposition bill on disclos- ure. The premier has his own announcement on the subject pending. Mr. Ludwig had the cour- age foolhardiness? to urge the Conservatives to support his bill since, he rea- reasoned, "open govern- ment" was a much touted principle of the Loughsed ad- minigtration. The premier greeted that with a broad smile and an even broader shaking of the head, as if to say "sorry Mr. Ludwig." E's uncertain whether op- position MLAs harbor any hidden desire that some day perhaps they become ;he author of some law. What's certain is that the government side feels it has a mandate from the people to the laws, and in its own time and way.

Ph. 327-5816 right wing Social Credit leader Werner Schmidt has been observed to shiver but the writing is on the wall: The Alberta electorate will soon demand government auto insurance. Shareholders in an Alberta life insurance company have demanded the government in- vestigateirregularities in seven insuranca companies operating locally. This comes on top of the memory of the collapse of the Rocky Mountain Life Insur- ance Company last year. That the first time in Canadian life insurance his- tory that a government bailed out an insurance firm. The government was non- other than the free enterprise Tories. In every other instance of financial difficulty for an in- surance firm, another insur- ance company had stepped in and purchased the floundering policies. Alberta's Mew Democratic neighbors have adopted gov- ernment auto insurance. Rates in Saskatchewan Ic-ok inviting. The public mind is swinging in that direction. A purple ribbon for Bill Purdy (PC-Stony Plain) and his committiee report on changes to the Election Act. Inadvertently, or by design, the committee completely ig- nored a major point in the exercise to grapple with the issue of the disclosure of the source of campaign funds. Mr. Purdy suggested the reason for the oversight that forcing politicians to dis- close the source of funds was somehow in conflict with "our free society." A public concensus would likely come to the opposite conclusion. How free is o u r society with influence deal- ers plying then- trade in the shadows? Those beavers "removed from Indian Battle Park for damaging trees, prompted a Calgary MLA to propose the same final solution for Cal- gary officials responsible for doing what the beavers did. However, on further consid- eration the MLA thought he'd have troulte finding v-ildlife officers to take action against Calgarians. Maybe a case for the ombudsman.

The foot building will be located on the former Hull Block site and adjacent properties. The de- velopment will occupy the entire block between 2nd and 3rd Ave. and between 7th and 3th St. S.

Calves die Twin calves joined from the neck to the navel died about 15 minutes after being born in the Cowley district earlier this month. A Charolais heifer, owned by Ruby Maufort in the Por- cupine Hills, gave birth to the Siamese twin calves. No figures are available to determine how many joined calves are born in Canada each year, but Dr. Gordon Chalmers of the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab in Lefcbridge says normal twin calves are born about once in every 96 normal births in dairy cattle and once in every 227 normal births in beef cattle. He indicated Siamese twin calves are considerably rarer than normal twins. The heifer collapsed in labor and the calves were delivered by caesarian operation. Both calves appeared nor- mal except that they were joined. ing with about 100 residents of Mossleigh, located about 30 miles north of Vulcan. The Mossleigh delegation was protesting a recent an- nouncement by Arnold Platt, chairman of the provincial government's special advis- ory committee on guidelines for the establishment of new Hutterite colonies, t h a t a Mossleigh colony and three ethers would be established In Alberta this year. They said the committee had not consulted them on the matter. Airs. Alice Wark of Moss- leigh said in an interview the delegation went to Vulcan "to get a stand from council on the operation of schools for the Hutterites if a Mossleigh colony is started. "A delegation from the Mossleigh, community met with Mr. Platt on March 30 and was assured by him that members of the community would be consulted and in- formed on the Hutterite col- ony a statement pre- pared by the delegates ?aid. The delegation said the resi- dents learnsd of the new col- ony from- the newspaper. Mrs. Wark said residents decided to oppose opening a school for Hutterites after learning of Mr. Platt's deci- sion without consulting them. "We're not opposed to Hut- terites as she said. "It's the way they disrupt our way of life here." they would settle in as individual farmers the way others do here, they would be quite welcome. We would be willing to bus Hutterite chil- dren into our schools, but not to open a separate school for them."
