Speaking at an evening rally in Henderson Lake park before a crowd of at least 500, the Conservative leader stated wa- ter resources "should be rated as the very highest of our priorities." A Conservat i v e governmenl would institute a "balanced pol icy" permitting use of water for agriculture, but surplus wa- ter would be preserved, not ex- ported, Mr. Lougheed said. "I don't think we have our priorities right. We should con- sider water in terms of its im- pact on agriculture. "If we don't recognize the strength of irrigation, if we just go for the easy dollar, we will all be very sad indeed." Mr. Lougheed said a massive water diversion program such as PRIME, which involves a number of Prairie rivers, is "ill and added: "We need a water policy that looks at the real needs of this province." A number of Conservative policies regarding water were outlined to the press before the rally, including: Revamping of closing bylaw going to be complicated job By IIEltB JOHNSON" Staff Writer Stay open all day Wednesdaj and close Monday? Increase the late night shopping hours before Christmas? Clamp down on drugstore; selling everything from acetyl salicylic acid tablets to running shoes until 9 o'clock every night? Take steps to protcc the neighborhood grocery store? These are just some of the problems and alternatives fac ing city council as it heads into the job of revising the cily's closing bylaw for shops One of the problems is that the bylaw itself is a fairly complex document. It defincf the word for example, as meaning "not open for the serving of any customer." But beyond that it becomes much more cumbersome. Simply defining what consti' lutes fi shop requires a ful] paragraph, most of it given over to listing exceptions such as restaurants, fresh fruit stores, farm implement deal- ers, news agents, chemists, druggists and others. Barber shops and beauty par- lois arc included in the "shops" category, hut have their own set of opening and closing hours. Pharmacy Facts from O. C.

On Saturdays they can stay open until 11 p.m. Between March and Novem- ber they may slay open until p.m. during the week and until midnight on Saturdays. Section seven of the bylau allows any shop to sell bread, cake, pastry, candy, ice cream, milk or fresh fruit at any time not inconsistent with the Lord's Day Act. However, the shop- keeper must not, at the same time, expose for sale other goods, the sale of which is for- bidden by the bylaw. A section that is causing problems in the city right now for shops that carry more than one line of goods. A store may have to close for certain articles, but be al- lowed to remain open to sell others. In this case the shop- keeper is supposed to display a prominent place a list of the goods he is allowed to sell. It is a complex bylaw, de- signed to accommodate a com- )lex, and changing situation. Pressure for change has come :rom some of the large chain stores City council has decided to ask for submissions on how the bylaw might be amended, al- though nothing has been set out yet on just how this will be done. John Loewen, manager of Simpsons-Sears, says another submission, similar to the one at the last meeting of council, is planned. This would ask for shopping all day Wednesday and until 3 p.m. two weeks be- fore Christmas. Reaction from the smaller, independent stores is less well defined. Conrad Plettell, presi- dent of the North Lethbridge B u s 1 n cssmen's Association, said he felt the group should come up with a policy state- ment but that nothing had been drafted as yet. The downtown businessmen have no official spokesman, but meeting is planned for this week to talk about the closing bylaw. Several other merchants have expressed a "wait and see" at- titude. Amending the closing bylaw could turn out to be a long and complicated process. to establish a Water Resources Conservation and Development Board. of a task force to assess present and fu- ture uses and requirements of wafer for irrigation in Alberta. priority to river man- agement programs on the Old- man, Red Dser and Bow Rivers. to protect the rights of Albertans down- stream on the Peace River from hydro projects of the B.C. government. of water use Happy limiting The Progressive Conserva- tive party will have to win a number of seats in southern Alberta if it expects lo form a government, leader Peter Lougheed said Thursday. "I don't feel this is hostile territory in fact, I'd call it happy hunting grounds." St. Mary's addition to proceed The Lethbridgc separate school board has decided to go ahead with a addition to St. Mary's School. The decision was a month in .he making. When tenders lor he project were opened July 7 .he board discovered the low- est, by GUIett Construction Ltd. of Lethbridge, was about above the estimate. It was decided the addition could not be built at the quoted S470.700 price without putting oo heavy a load on local tax- payers. However, various deletions and structural changes reduced he cost by about and h e provincial government came through an addi- ional on its grant lor he project. 3 arrested Three young Americans were arrested and charged at Card- ston with the possession of marijuana.

Mi'. Lougheed said at the rally some crilics of Ihe Con- servative program are charg- ing that "we are promising lo do things beyond the scope of the economy." "That's he said. "The Social Credit government has coasted on the oil and gas industry, and has failed to take advantage of the billion which has eome into the treas- ury lo build an economy that is not so dependent on these in- dustries." He added that smaller cen- tres can and should play a ful- filling and expanding role in tile economy. The C o n s e r v a live leader supported greater autonomy for MLAs. "It's time the individual had some say in government, and some response from govern- ment. The ]MLA should s'.and up for his constituency and not always vote in accordance with (he caucus." Mr. Lougheed also attacked the government for its policies en men'al health and facilities for retarded children, abuse of confidential government infor- mation "in the hands of thei and environmen- tal pollution. He mentioned spe- cifically air pollution in Pinch- er Creek, strip mining near Banff, and oil wells in the Cypress Hills park. Challenged by a heckler as to what specific steps a Con- servative government would do to control pollution, Mr. Loug- heed replied: "I'm going to do an awful lot more than criticizers who sit back and do nothing." After the rally, Mr. Lougheed was confronted by a small group of young protesters who asked why the Conservative leader did not say specifically what action his party would take to control pollution. Mr. Lougheed spoke brief- ly to the youths, telling them at one point they could learn the party's specific planks by read- ing the party platform. The rally was attended by eight Conservative candidates from southern Alberta: John Green, Li'tle Bow; Morgan Johnson, Pincher Creek; Dave Burnston.

Bill Thomas, a Crce named in April to the federal post, said [lie civil service lends to hire persons with administrative skill, those who like routine and can "do a lot of paper work.1' Indians, on the other hand, want people who understand them, with whom they can Irdk. Natives "don't care if anything is put on paper." Mr. Thomas, 37, horn in Man- ilolj.i, said Indians may IK given excellent education in Al- berta schools, but away from campuses, they are confronted with the "ugliness" of integra- tion. Hotels, including one in Lelh- bridge, refuse to serve them, They are judged by their looks, rallier llinn on an individual basis. This places an "awful load" on an Indian's self-confidence. He may eventually decide Ihe nllempt lo integrate isn't worth Ihe results. Mr. Thomas, who lives in Ed- monton, said integration lias nol. worked up to tin's time, but Indians arc beginning to un- derstand Ihcre nrc enough re- sources available that they can "get Uic best ot tho world."
