Addressing a press confer- ence in Lethbridge, Mr. Notley said the promise of such a grant is almost meaningless under existing circumstances. The proposal would only he meaningful if controls are placed on land speculators, land developers and manufac- turers of mobile homes, he said. Otherwise, the price of homes would be increased an the grant would be "s phoned resulting in ben fits to "promoters" but m home buyers. He said the fjovernmen should took at the whole ques tion of housing. If they are serious, he sail the government should estal ush a Crown land assemb] project, and pass legislatio controlling land speculation. I: tormol land speculation useless exercise.

COMPLETE AIR CONDITIONING FEDOR'S REFRIGERATION Ph. 327-5816 C A Sheet Metal Ph. 378-5973 By JOAN BOWMAN Staff Writer Provincial Liberal leader Robert Russell says his work with southern officials of the party "has been very dis- couraging." The Liberals have named nine candidates, only one ol them in the 10 south ridings, in Medicine Hat Redclilf. Mr. Russell said he does not know of any other potential candi- dates south of Calgary. He indicated lie and B. C. Tanner, president of the .party, had conferred three times with >arly officials in Lelhbridge and the trips from Edmonlon 'weren't worth Ihe gasoline." "There are not many real Liberals in Lelhbridge. They call Ihemselves Liberals and hey will attend meetings, but hey are not dedicated." Mr. Russell, who is running r election in the St. Albert iding, said party members u f f e r an 'understandable apathy" because of past lead- ership problems. "Liberals may agree with the party's policies, but they are too dejected, have had too many disappointments." Mr. Russell was elected last March as the party's sixth leader in fewer than seven years. He filled a post left va- cant for about one year by the resignation of Jack Lowery of Calgary. Mr. Lowery is cur- rently campaigning for the So- cial Credit party. At a press conference Wed- nesday, Mr. Russell and Mr. Tanner indicated they would endorse any Liberal who files nomination papers, whether or not his home constituency backs him. "But I'm not going to work in ridings that won't help them- Mr. Russell said. The party hopes to field about 15 candidates in the Aug. 30 election, leaving them CO short for the province's 75 rid- ings. Meanwhile Dr. W. J. Cranley, president of the provincial Lib- eral association in Lethbridge, said lie doubted any Liberals would file nominalion papers for the two city ridings. The Liberals "have all join- ed the Socred party." Dr. Cranley suggested the only type of person who migl file is "some lawyer who' starving and I don't know i any of them around." He said the "word has com down from the federal Lit erals" to remain low-key fo the election. The thinking is: the Progre sive Conservatives will lose th Alberta election and will be come firmly implanted in th electorate's mind as the Op position. When the federal elec lion rolls around, probably i 1972, Alberta Socreds, wh have tended to vote Tory fed erally, will cast favorabe eye toward the national Liberals. Dr. Cranley ran unsuccess fully for the Alberta presidency on a platform o culling back Ihe over-repre senlation of lawyers in the parly and diminishing the fee eral party's influence. The Liberals are the onl; provincial party to have one executive for both La'hbridgi East and Lethbridge West. Dr. Cranley said he told the executive to go ahead and eled new executives but nothing has been done. He has consistently indicate! the present executive would stand behind any Liberal who wanted lo run in Lethbridge. The three other parties, So- cial Credit, Progressive Con servative and New Democratic have all named candidates for the ridings. Cancer drive needs The Lethbridge and district branch of the Canadian Cancer Society remains only shy of its '1971 objective of The branch, which surpassed its 1970 tat get of by more than is asking city donors to make a special lasl effort to bring this year's cam- paign over the top, said cam- paign manager Cec Gordon. Books on the 1971 campaign are closed on Sept. 30. Donations may be made to the CCS branch at 409 Canada Trust Building, Lethbridge.

On another matter, the NDP leader reiterated points he hac made earlier in Edmonton re- garding his party's concern over preservation of the familj laim. He said the Progressive Con- servative and Social Credit parties talk about preserving the family farm, but their poll cies would lead lo fewer rura people and larger and largei farms. "The NDP wants lo preserve the structure of agriculture as it exists he said, so thai rural people are not forced lo move to Ihe city. He noled there are farm families GRANT NOTLEY hits Socreds .n Alberta today, and they are eaving the land at an average of 100 families a month. "We are committed to keep- ing rural life viable and main- taining people on the land." To achieve this end, an NDP government would establish a and bank so young people could establish themselves on a arm without incurring "a mountain of would pass egislation prohibiting corpora- ions from competing with fam- ly farms, and would institute incenlive grants, among other measures. Asked if there is any differ- ;nce between an NDP proposal o have the provincial govern- ment assume the entire tax burden for education, and a similar proposal made by the Conservatives, Mr. Notley re- plied the Consei'vativcs "don't specify where the provincial government would get (he whereas Ihe NDP is candid about where such addi- tional funds would come from. An NDP government would levy a supplementary capital gains lax and a resource reve- nue tax, while the other parties "won't tackle these sources of revenue." Mr. Notley refused lo make specific prediction about the outcome of the Aug. 30 elec- tion, although he said the NDP expects to win "a very sub- stantial number1 of seats" in- cluding Pincher Creek. The Lethbridge candidates will win a "first rate popular vote." he said. ACT sale branded nonsensical A suggestion by Progressive Conservative leader Peter Lougheed that 49 per cent ol Alberta Government Tele- phones be sold lo AJbertans is "totally New Democratic Party leader Grant Notley said Wednesday. It is "more nonsensical Uian his original position" calling for complete sale of ACT, Mr. Notley said at a press confer- ence here. Wlra would buy the Mr. Notley asked. "Who would invest in a non-profit organiza- tion'" If ACT is to make money for investors, rates would have to increase. Thus, a majority of Albertans would pay for the profit of a few, he said. "Why not invest in foreign- owned industry, instead of something the people already Mr. Notley asked. Doug Poile, NDP candidate !or Lethbridge East, who was present at the Notley press con- erence, also attacked the proposal, and urged that the government retain complete control of ACT. He also advocated the pur- chase of Calgary Power by the provincial government. lUNIRQYAL, m UNIROYAL VACATION TRIP?
