(CP Wirephoto) Stanfield campaigns a la Trudeau OTTAWA (CP) When the lonservalives began planning or the next general election ampaign, one of the first deci- ions was that Robert Stanfield vould never again w a 11 o w :ross Canadian skies in an old Mslon-drivcn airplane. With Prime Minister Trudeau ipping around in a jet during he 1968 campaign, the compari- lon was too obvious. So this lime, the party lias made arrangements lo charter a twin-jet DC-9, Ihc same type ol plane Mr. Trudeau used in he last campaign, ami the lypc ie is likely In use again. Both leaders will make short, snappy forays out of Trudeau did last hus create (lie impression of ;eing everywhere at once. Mr. Stanfield, however, is not adopting many other of Mr. Trudeau's methods. Conservative planners, for in- stance, are not thinking terms of shopping centre extra- vaganzas. More thought is being given lo low-key niainslrceting and visits to fairs, factories and farms. With television and the press recording Mr. Stanfield's con- versations w i t h individuals about incentive Rodeo succeeds VULCAN Vulcan's first in- door rodeo saw an overflow of cowboys tangle with livestock to the delight of lull houses both nights, with an additional run' off one afternoon. This rodeo was an initial try of the Kinsmen CKib of Vulcan willi the aid of the Vulcan Lions Club. A close two night estimate ol fans, the two largest crowds ever sandwiched into the arena, caught the excite- ment of this spectacle. some party officials feel this will have a stronger long-term impact than mob scenes, "The incentive society" will 30 one of Mr. Stanfield's key phrases In the campaign, say organizers. He already has begun referring to it in some of his speeches. In the campaign, Mr. Stanfield stressed quality of life white Mr. Trudeau was over- powering that with his just soci- ety. One thing Conservatives plat; on avoiding this time are long- t e r m commitments to any schedule for the leader. "Flexi- bility, is our says one official. FEWER PROBLEMS This is designed to eliminate some of the leader being committed to a lengthy stay in one region when unscheduled events would have marie it more profitable for him to he in another area. Only in the cose of major rat- lies will plans be completed more than four or five days In advance. Except in the West, where big meetings remain thtc most at- tractive feature of campaigns, Conservative planners are hop- Ing to keep rallies to a mini- mum. They feel that as much can be accomplished through a televised chat with a farmer or factory worker as through a strenuous speech In a hall. TJnlikc 1008, the Conservative organization is highly luned for Ihe coming campaign. Tho headquarters staff has been beefed up with experts, advance teams are ready to move across the country to lay the ground- work for Mr. Stanfield's visits, and a whole new communica- tions network has been c'tab- lished. "If groundwork by itself won said one organizer, "we'd have it." Ex-Ghana leader dies in exile DAKAR, Senegal CAP) Kwame Nkrumah, 62, former i president of Ghana and a leader of the African independence movement, died Thursday in exile in Conakry, Guinea, the Guinean radio reported. President Sekou Tourc of Guinea made the announcement of NkrumarVs death on the na- :ionai radio, monitored here. Nkrumah had been reported critically ill with cancer in re- cent days. He was to have been treated in various East European cities as well as in Guinea. Nkrumah, named prime min- ister when Ghana gained inde- pendent from Britain in 1051, became president when a repub- lican constitution was promul- gated July 1, I960. He steadily increased his power io authori- tarian proportions before the army took power in a coup, Feb. 24, 19GG, while Nkrumah was on a trip to Peking and North Vietnam. The fiery leader found asylum in Guinea and at one time was proclaimed joint president by President Sekou Tourc. Nkrumah was 62. He called himself "Osagyefo11 or savior. Actually ho was a dictator who lived be- hind heavily-guarded walls for years in mortal fear of his life until he was deposed as Ghana's president, DISREGARDED RIGHTS One of Urn men who over- threw him in 1566 charged he had run Ghana "as if it was his own personal property." Even a bullet-proof vest be- neath his blue tunic failed to give him enough confidence, in the last years of his rule, to mingle much with his people. At least five attempts were made on his life, the first Aug. 1, tho last Jan. 2, IflLVl, when a po- lict-. constahle fired at him five limes and killed a member of the presidential guard. The attempts on his life only encouraged Nkrumah to bring Ghana under a dictatorship, edging closer to the Soviet bloc. Although he was educated in the United States and Nkrumah violently denounced the West hut continued lo ac- cept American and British aid. He constantly cherished tho dream of a pan-African union of black himself as leader. His high-handed suppression of opposition viewpoints was a bitter disappointment to his friends in the West who had once regarded him as black Af- rica's brightest hope. In Decem- ber, 1963, he fired Ghana's chief justice for exonerating three men charged with a 1962 bomb attack on him. Opposition politicians, some of them N k r u m a h 's former friends, were jailed at whim by the president's police. In February 1964, Nkrumah's Convention People's party was officially proclaimed Ghana's only legal political group and the party banner became the national flag.
