OAT1S UNITED NATIONS (AP) The United States worked be- hind the scenes today lo line up support for resolutions that would invite Communist China to join the United Nations and at the same time prevent the expulsion of Nationalist China. Diplomatic sources said U.S. Chief Delegate George Bush outlined the two resolutions and asked for co-sponsors at a meet- ing of representatives from about 20 delegations Tuesday at his office opposite UN head- quarters. The sources said the resolu- tions will be submitted for the General Assembly session open- ing Sept. 21 as soon as the dele- gations determined whether their governments will become :o-sponsors. The first resolution would offer the Communist regime in Peking a seat In the United Na- lions, would specify .that the Na- tionalist government on Taiwan would continue to be seated and would direct the specialized UN agencies to take the decision into account.

EDMONTON Lib- eral parly today released its policy statement fur Hie Aug. 30 provincial election and said it will strive lo provide Al- Iiertans with jobs and a quality of life that will surpass all other areas of North America. With a voice in the legisla- ture, said party leader Bob Russell, the Liberal party can provide the reasonable alterna- tive that is cssertial lo Al- berta's future. To create jobs, a Liberal government would conduct a detailed study of primary re- sources. It would determine where the timber, minerals, water, OL! and gas are located, what the reserves are in each area, and what the potential is, based on global and Pacific- rim marketing prospects. Mr. Russell said a Liberal administration would provide funds at reasonable interest rates to enable small cities and towns to establish industrial To enhance Alberta's agricul- tural potential, the Liberals would form a team of food marketing specialists and re- searchers who would travel to Ihina and Japan and study the market potential of the prov- ince's agriculture products. Mr. Russell said there is a a quality of life in small com- munities worth preserving and the Liberals would develop small, satellite communities near large urban areas. "Future communities adja- cent to large metropolitan areas must be set aside Mr. Russell said, "and the planning for transportation cor- ridors, utilities and other es- sential services should be an ongoing matter." A Liberal government would partially finance up to 25 per cent of the capital a regional water and sewage authority. Mr. Russell said immense savings could be realized by bringing the treatment of water and sewage under a single au- thority and one system of major plants. There would be a massive clean-up of lakes and rivers, with a Liberal government pro- riding weed culling machines and A Liberal government would establish recycling plants for glass, paper, metal cloth and other waste products and gar- bage packing plants to con- solidate and sterilize certain wastes.

A Bank of Alberta, created from existing Treasury Branch- es, would include a special agriculture department which would provide line of credit financing to {aimers. Mr. Russell said the Liberals would evaluate land around Al- berta's urban centres to deler- mine its classification and pos- sible future use. A Liberal government would form a power and water au- thority which would be respon- sible for the construction of all dams and the distribution of power in Alberta. For women, the Liberal plat- form offers a program of fam- ily planning and birth control information and facilities; grants and bursaries for adult women students who are re- newing their education and a study of legislation to ensure that no discrimination exists.
