The major subjects which will remain on the Lelhljridge Community College campus this semester include biology, chemistry, physics, music and art. The decision on which sui> jecls would remain at Ihe LCC campus and which would be at the new site was made so as to inconvenience as few people ns possible. The laboratory facilities al LCC make it more feasible to continue Ihe subjects selected al the LCC campus.

Speaking to 35 persons at Rainbow Hall, Mr. Bujjert re- fen ed to the present high cost and claim difficulties of auto- mobile insurance and suggest- ed one government operated insurance board as a superior alternative, as outlined in the NDP election platform. He also condemned the pres- ent medicare system in the province and promised that if the NDP was in power, it would include dental care, unlimited eye check-ups, and' drug pre- scriptitfns in tie medicare cov- erage. Mr. Buijert said NDP would institute a government pur- chasing agency for drugs and redistribute the drugs to phar- macists so that the government can keep track of prices. This is necessary, he said, because the cost of drugs in this coun- try is much higher than it is in the United States and many European countries. He emphasized that "health shouldn't be and that no one should be able to "profit on another's misfor- tune." This could be alleviated by establishing a value on ser- vice performed by doctors, he said- Doug Poile attacked another area where, he said, the pres- ent provincial government has "missed the bus." Where the Social Credit gov- ernment has established 12 per cent royalties on Alberta's nat- ural resources, the NDP would increase the royalties to 25 pel- cent to add million to the provincial coffers, lie said. With this money, an Alberta development corporation would be formed to provide a fund for Alberlans to draw from to es- tablish new businesses, he said. He added the money would Ire paid back to the government when the businesses began to prosper. The additional revenue from the royalties increase would also go towards paying for edu- cation which would receive a face-lift under an NDP govern- ment, he said. The party plat- form includes capital gains and income taxes as additional rev- enue sources for the educa- tional fund. Poile outlined a reform for the school system which would sec schools open the year round, the institution of pre-schools, the abolishment of the grading system, and 11 years of compulsory education. lie stressed the necessity of making education available to all Albertans by eliminating tuitions at all levels. Basing liis ideal on expe- rience as a teacher, Mr. Poile said students and teachers should establish a cumcuhijn and a goal together, keeping in line with the students' inter- ests. Both candidates charac-1 lerized their opponents, the Socreds and Progressive Con- servatives, as being "Tory" and said that the only real i choice is NDP. I Mr. Duijcr! appealed to the supporters at the meeting to gef out and talk politics with their friends and neighbors and lo spread the- word about tlie NDP. He expressed optimism over parly's chances of winning the election and referred lo HIP 10GD NDP victory in Mani- toba for encouragement. He said that in the election prev- ious lo 1969 there, NDP polled lit per cent of the votes. In (he last Alberta election, he said, the NDP party also got 10 per cent of the vote.

Crowds were generally light 25 turned out to meet the premier in Claresholm, and 50 in Fort Macleol and the Pincher Creek meeting drew about 50 persons including sev- eral young hecklers. Al Pincher Creek, Mr, Strom addressed the challenge that it is "lime for a change" in the Aug. 30 provincial election. "I represent he said. "I am a new leader, not cut off from the past, but a new person coping with new responsibilities." He noted Social Credit has .18 new candidates running in the election. The Social Credit candi- date for Pincher Creek-Crows- nesl, MLA Charles Drain, was unable lo allend the meeting because ol illness, but Leighton Buckivell, MLA for Macleod, spoke on his behalf. Mr. Buckwell attacked the Conservative party as "a move- ment built on one little man." He said the NDP is tne only altcrnalive lo Social Credil in Ihe election, because their phil- osophies differ.
