Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta I ne L.E i United States9 most boring dynamo? Jackson and youth vote He cart also put them to sleep BELLINGHAM (NEA) When Henry Jackson spoke to a college group here the other day it wab so crowded that some ol the students almost fell asleep standing up The senator has this effect on people he s too important lo ignore but too dull to behold God said a voung woman after his spe he sounds like somei Harrv Truman s team Part ol the audience reaction was in response to Jackson s lack ol rapport he asked a question about the legalizing ol marijuana he replied with a creaking confession that he d given up smoking at 12 then he launched into a 10-mmute dissertation on good health embellishing the lecture with the medical historv of his own muscle and winding up the entire bv explaining that evervone in the audience should swim a hall hour a day as he does m the congressional pool But the principal reason tor all those eyes at half- mast was that Scoop Jackson did not say thing the students had not H. before Had the sivju parents been preset ihev too would have recognized the line Through three decades of government service Jackson s opinion has been this The nation is facing a crisis, but the nation is great enough to preserve The crises have changed Yellow Peril to the Energy the Senator steadfastly maintains today as he did eons ago that if the populace buckles down and of course follows Jackson s lead this crisis can be a manageable one For manv such eternal convictions and optimism are todav as vesterday welcome After falling ill to the Front Page Fright a disease endemic to the nation todav some citizens go to Jackson speeches essentially to clap and nod while they are reassuied that all is not lost and the old values are still the best values For others though Jackson is working out of an exceedingly mossy bag Seattle writer Dick Larson who co-authored a biography on Jackson says the senator operates on a political Pavlovian theory which is to say he eternally seeks refuge in ideas and opinions that have For his own part Jackson says he changes tactics but not ideals Called the last great Cold War Warrior in America the senator says that s bull but admits he doesn t trust the Reds This nation has a kind ot change svndrome You re not with it if you don t change if vou don t get modern Well I change we all change but I believe basic principles should be preserved As far as detente with Russia goes I don t see any real detente so I haven t changed my opinion about that nation Bneflv Jackson s opinion concerning the Soviet Union is that it still seeks influence over the world Not occupation influence necessarily, but a more sophisticated primacv He says Finland is a modern example of Russian expansion the Middle be another As, lor East West confrontation I don t think Russia has ever had anv specific plan to take over the world But they respect strength and if we are weak they will take greater risks I believe these risks could get us into an all-out nuclear war Such sentiments are seldom heard today from leading presidential candidates But thev are heard in the majority in Bellmgham Wash and most other towns and cities in the nation When the senator talks of them from a lectern as he s done in 27 states since last spring he normally receives nodding approval Not cheers the wav George Wallace does because Jackson is less demagogic in his chauvinism but rather a quite smile of approval for a man saying wnat his audience thinks savnovv he mostly believed in supporting our committed soldiers He supported the Alaska pipeline bill after sponsoring legislation which helped delay its construction Even his devotees can t explain some of the maneuvers Savs Press Secretary Brian Corcoran He s so active sometimes, he finds him sell coming and going This is whv even though he puts many to sleep even though his politics are dated he is earning a growing respect in this nation which has lost so much of its respect Savs his aide Dennv Miller He stands tor something That something in essence is determined strength Lewis wins top prize for House point scoring By PETER THOMMjn Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Top prize for political point scoring in the past week has to go to NDP leader David Lewis As soon as Finance Minister John Turner produced his re- port on the effects of corporate tax cuts Mr Lewis was up and swinging He was he said prepared to sink the government on the is sue if the Conservatives would go along with him Now in the world of politics it matters not if Mr Lewis was reallv prepared to topple the government It is appearances that count In this instance it appeared Mr Lewis caught the Con servatives with their strategy down Their only recovery was to say they would wait to see what was in the tax concessions were after all a budgetary matter That being the case we will never know whether Mr Lewis was serious If it was a blufl it worked He succeeded in one deft move in showing there is a significant difference between the NDP and the Liberals a point the Conservatives had been seeking to obscure in recent months t-or some reason or other there is increased election talk in Ottawa and ail eves are now focused on Mr Turner s upcoming budget as the possible springboard II the budget is brought down fairly soon after the Eastei break there would be time for an early summer election Without speculating on the likelihood or otherwise ot an early election the date is important for two technical reasons First the election expenses act whereby the federal- treasury would subsidize campaign expenses is scheduled to be proclaimed Julv 15 Chief Electoral officer Jean Marc Hamel says that date is unlikely to be changed The second point is that moratorium has been placed on electoral boundary changes until the end of this yea" election in 1974 will be fought on the basis of con- stituencv boundaries that ex- isted in the 1972 election not- withstanding anv population shifts reflected in the 1971 census In effect the election would be on the basis of 1966 population distribution II (here is no election this MPs will have to again address themselves to the prospect ol redistribution Prime Minister Trudeau was in a highlv elated frame ot mind last week when he de scribed to the House the Com- mons last week When Conservative House Leader Tom Bell asked whv the transportation mess hadn I been mentioned in the Throne Speech Mr Trudeau replied bv wondering whv the Conservatives hadn t mentioned it in the Throne Speech debate When Mr Bell persisted on the transportation theme Mr Trudeau responded the Hon Member should have assumed it would take us several vears to clean up the mess left bv the Hon Member lor Tnnitv That was a sharp slap at Paul Hellver the former Liberal Transpoit Minister who left the Trudeau cabinet and later the Liberal Party and now sits as a Tory MP Mr Hellyer reacted by asking what had happened to a studv on rail transportation which was under way when he left the department Former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker judged the Prime Ministerial mood to pertection and promptly set Mr Trudeau up for a political punch at Mr Lewis Had Saskatchewan Premier Allan Blakeney agreed whole heartedlv to the 50 price9 asked Mr Diefenbaker otherwise we will hear about it politically from (Mr Lewis) Mr Trudeau deftly com mented that there was a code of honor that prevails during these meetings but he commented that the Saskatchewan had publicly supported that price which certamlv is a contradiction of what the leader of the NDP said It was a first rate put down ot Mr Lewis The best laugh of the weeK was produced by solicitor-gen eral Warren Allmand When questioned about the need for more psychiatrists to work among inmates in prisons Mr Allmand inadvertently commented I have met with groups ol psychiatrists myself When the laughter finally subsided Mr Allmand recovered neatly by saving It is something I would commend to opposition members Health Minister Marc La- londe s fight against U S sports influence in Canada has dt least got as far as Hansard In Hansard the Boston Red Sox are Canadiamzed into Socks Barring unforseen develop menls it appears that trans- rail inflation will be the dominant issues in the weeks and months ahead There is some justification As ot mid-March overseas ex- Doris ot wheat were 110 million bushels below year ago levels There is no question the wheat could have been sold if it had been at seaboard and sold at close to a bushel It makes one wonder whv the CNR should be concerned about financing lor its return less than one
