Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Vigorous national organiser Senator Davey back at helm of Liberal election campaign By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Senator Keith Javey is back at his old stand. He is in charge of the Liberal iarty's campaign for the next election in English peaking Canada. As the vigorous national or- of the Liberal party in he sixties he worked hard at the late L. B. Pearson lected to the office of prime ninister. He struggled against he campaign skills of the old naster John Diefenbaker to try ind win a working majority for tfike. He was not as successful as he would have liked to have been. But it was not for lack of try- ing. Always an innovator and a self-styled he helped energize the Liberal party which had reeled into the doldums after suffering humili- ation at the hands of the Tory chieftain Diefenbaker. Then in his middle thirties Davey was recruited by the Liberal party. A small corps of bright young party members including Wal- ter Paul Hellyer and Judy LaMarsh had emerged as the spark plugs of the wrecked Liberal left in sad re- pair after the debacle at the polls in 1957 and 1958. Senator John presi- dent of the Liberal Federation at that played a major role in helping rebuild the party organization. The new ycung bloods challenged the old-guard and ecountered considerable hostility. Davey _ as the national organ- izer had the tough assignment trying to reconcile the driv- ambitious forces generated by the with the timid and reluctant party members. He was on the side of the and often L. B. Pear- son had to step in and act as a conciliator to keep the older members of the party from walking away from it in a huff. Now Davey the is back an older and wiser man. But he is still full of the old ginger. He will bring his peculiar talents to the job of trying to get Prime Min- ister Pierre Trudeau re-elected this time with a large working majority whenever the election is in 1974. in the spring or the fall. Post mortems held by Liber- als after the disaster that befell the party in the October elec- tion last year have made it aware that enlisting academics and theorists to handle election campaigns doesn't work. They can draw all the charts and dia- grams they plan and hold but that does not win elections. Under the direction of Davey there will be no more slogans such as. land is Strong. There will be slogans but they will be punchy and carry some impact. Davey wants to get the grass roots involved. It took some persuading by the powers that be to get the senator to agree to take on the job. Others had been sounded out such as the former now resigned from the upper John Nichol. He wanted no'part of the job. He'd been through election campaigns with tha late Mr. Pearson and deeply involved in Mr. Trudeau's first campaign as leader of the party. That was enough. The choice fell to Davey. Some people in the party were opposed to appointing him to the job again. They recalled his flamboyant techniques with Pearson when he launched the and resorted to the use of comic and coloring books and pigeons to try and convince Canadians that they needed Pearson as a prime minister with a majority. Davey went to Pearson with his resignation in hand during the campaign when his tactics were embarrassing the prima minister. But the resignation was rejected and the national director eventually went into the senate as his reward. While he failed to win a ma- jority for Pearson in the three elections he ran as the organ- ization Davey will be val- uable to the Trudeau Liberals because of his practical politi- cal knowledge. In addition while the party feels it is safe in Que- it wants to win many more seats in Ontario. Davey is the man to do just that. He may not know the west but he cer- tainly knows Ontario and what makes politics tick in that prov- ince. Communicatioss Is the key word in any election campaign if it is to be Davey.
