First off Ihe mark was Rich- ard Barton, Progressive Con- servative candidate for Lelh- bridge Easl, who started his door-to-door campaigning the day after the Aug. 30 election was announced by Premier llsrry Strom. Mr. Barton plans to person- ally visit every home in his constituency, and his cam- paign workers also ta- tempt to cover the riding at least once. The Conservative candidate in Lethbridge West, R. J. (Dick) Gray, started actively campaigning Tuesday. lie is also concentrating on door-to- door contact, and will be speaking to a number of or- ganizations. The Social Credit campaign gol under way late last week, and both candidates expect their campaigning will acceler- ate as the election date ap- proaches. Johnnie Anderson, Leth- bridge East Socred, plans to concentrate on door lo door campaigning, with greater em- phasis on media advertising in the last few days of the cam- paign. Dick G r u e n w a I d, Social Credit candidate for Leth- bridge West, hasn't done much campaigning yet, but will be "mainslreeling" as the cam paign progresses. Mr. GruenwaJd's campaign manager, Douglas Palcrson says they haven't decided whether a door-to-door cam- paign will be liccessaiy. "We haven't had to do it be fore, b'lt we will if we feel it's Mr. Peterson said Doug Poile, New Dem ocrplic Party candidate In LeLhbridge East, started knocking on doors early this week.

Liquor board swamped with licence applications CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic SLACK DENTAL LAE Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327.2822 By ROB TURNER Staff Writer The Alberta Liquor Control Board has received a horde of applications from hotels and restaurants throughout the province for liquor licences since the approval of liberalized liquor lavs by the provincial legislature this spring. Applications have been re- ceived from all over the prov- ince, according to K. E Bak- er, deputy chairman of the board, who said this morning the first ones would receive of- ficial approval in just over one week. The new law allows dining lounges and restaurants to serve beer and wine to their patrons with their meals and allows bars to serve nine and hard liquor along with their traditional staple, beer. Licencees are required to ad- vertise their applications for four weeks and then wait two weeks to allow for any protests to the move. If none is re- ceived, Mr. Baker said, the board will then issue a licence. So far none of the proposed new liquor outlets has been protested. He noted the Wom- en's Christian Temperance Union is not as active as it once was.

Bill Riewe, assistant man- ager of the Lethbridge Hotel said he expected to see a "little more intoxication" although Lethbridge would not be hit so hard because "it is a beer drinking town." Mr. Riewe called the new law "a him for the better" and said the new privilege would generally accommodate tour- ists and the general public used to the customs in oUier parts of the world. A spokesman for the Town Chef said the restaurant was hoping for an increase both in customers and sales while at Garden judging now under way Judging of city gardens is being carried out today by the Lethbridge and District Horti- cultural Society.

One type of establishment that may be hit as a result of the new law is the existing iiquor lounge. A spokesman for the Park Plaza said his lounge might lose the type ol customer that wants to go to a bar with his friends but doesn't like beer. The spokesman for the hotel said at least 90 per cent of the patrons in a lounge are there for the atmosphere. A spokesman for the Mar- quis cocktail lounge said the new bar privileges would not affect the lounge's business ap- preciably. "Those who want softer music and reasonable :onversation will continue to pa- tronize the lounge." Spokesmen for two private clubs in Lethbridge, The Elks and the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans, both seemed to think their business wouldn't be affected in any way. The spokesman for the Army and Navy said his club was gaining business all the time because of the switch of older persons from the bars since the lowering of the legal drinking age. An Elks Club spokesman noted his club didn't depend on off-the-street business and didn't expect the new law to af- :ect it to any great extent.

Patriation would "get rid of ihe fuss of having to go to West- minster" to register amend- ments. The BNA Act provided for amendment only through the British Parliament, rather than through the federal govern- ment. LCC library slated for renovations The library at the Lethbridge Community College will soon be poorer by an estimated 000 books, periodicals and pamphlets.

The 25-member committee, which Mr. Gundlock joined last November, is due to submit its recommendations to Parlia- ment early this fall, at the start of the House-Senate sittings. The committee has held pub- lic meetings across the coun- try, including one in Lethbridge in January. Mr. Gundlock said the com- mittee will recommend that no single province have veto pow- er in amendments. Veto power would be held by any two prov- inces who have a combined total of at least 25 per cent of the national population. This would give Quebec and 3ntario virtual veto power. Mr. Gundlock said this situation would "have to be worked out." He indicated one sure general opinion the committee will ex- Dress is the disfavor held Jiroughout the country for the Royal Commission on Biling- ualism and Biculturalism. Mr. Gundlock said submis- sions to the committee criti- cized the commission for spending too much money and for not completing its report. "The commission didn't say anything we didn't know be- fore." The Lethbridge MP, elected to the seat in 1958, indicated an election is expected by parlia- mentarians in the fall of 1971 A spring election would be out because the Liberal govern- ment would not want to face the electorate "after another bad winter." Mr. Gundlock, a Progressive Conservative, re-affirmed he will run again for the Leth- bridge constituency. Registrations increasing at college Pre-registration of students at Lethbridge Community Col- lege is higher than at the same time last year, and college of- ficials are anticipating total en- rolment for the 1971-72 year will exceed the enrolment figure for the previous year. Gordon College, LCC infor- mation officer, said Tuesday more than 500 students have now registered for the coming academic year. Only first-year students are required to regis- ter before enrolment. Total enrolment last year was more than 900 students, and this figure is almost' cer- tain to be surpassed, Mr. Col- lege said. The most highly subscribed programs to date are nursing, outdoor recreational anci con- servation education, and col- lege preparatory, he said. Opening day at the college is Aug. 25. Fire damages diesel unit No injuries resulted from a fire in the lead unit of a four- diesel pulling combination on a CPR freight train at Brocket Monday. No estimate of dam- age was available. The engineer of the lead unit was able to uncouple the burn- ing engine valued at one quar- ter of a million dollars, and move it to a siding. The fire reportedJy resulted when a piston went through the side of an engine block and ig- nited some fuel. Four firefighters and one pumper truck Jrom the Pincher Creek fire department were abla to contain the fire to the tee us for fast, trptrl PHOTO rear of the load switcher and prevented its spread to a gallon fuel tank.
