These are some of the comments made by Leth- bridge's 21 young voyageurs who are back in the city after their trip to Saint John, N.B. The voyageurs left Leth- bridge Aug. 1 and spent a week travelling and a week in Saint John. They said that one of their more interesting slops during their last few days in Saint John was at a sugar beet fac- tory. The students were shown through the factory and were told that the raw cane sugar from Australia is used in the factory. The voyageurs asked why the plant didn't use Alberta sugar beets. They were told it would be difficult lo store the sugar beets, as they spoil eas- ily. They would have to be pro- cessed right away, causing a lot more expense to the factory. The Ausiralian raw sugar keeps much longer before it has to Ire processed, Most of the students said they found themselves com- paring the factory to Alberta's own sugar factories. Leslie Do Armond, one of the Lethhridge Collegiate Institute students, said the final party lut on for them by Ihe New Brunswick voyageurs was fun, except for "the water was little cold to swim in." The party was held around an outdoor oampfire with roast- ed hotdogs and marshmallows. Leslie said a few guitars were played and most of the kid either sang or went svamming in a nearby lake. Peggy Hutton, a Winston Churchill High School student said what impressed her most ahout New Brunswick were the lakes "all that water." She said she was also quiti surprised when the voyageur toured Montreal and met number of French students wh< could "speak English a lot bet 'or Uian we could s p r: a French."

The County of I.ethbridge council Thursday heard a pro- ;ress report on southern Alber- t's preparations from Boh the county's assistant secretary treasurer, and de- cided to appoint representa- tive to the steering committee Both Mr. Grant, and Bob Bartlett, the City of Lcth- bridge's director of community services, said southern Alberta cannot afford to lose more time in formation of a steering com- mittee to prepare for the sub- mission. The Grande Prairie area has already formed its steering committee. All authorities in southern Al- rta have expressed support for the Lcthbridfic area pro- posal.

Tuesday morning. By JOE MA Heralti Staff Writer Andy Russell is narrowing the gap between the strength of the Liberals nnd tlio. Progressive Conservatives by seek- ing the Grit nomination to contest the next federal election in the Lcthbridge riding. Before Mr. Russell came In, the Tories counted on John Doras being the Liberal candidate. In the eyes of the and this view is shared by many Liberals-Mr. Kusscll Is a strong candidate. Because of the quality of Mr. Russell, Mr. Boras und Ken Hurlbert, the former mayor of Fort Macleod who has besn elected the PC candidate, no one is risking his neck to predict whether Mr. Russell or Mr. Boras will get the Liberal nomination, ur whclher the Liberals will win with either Mr. Russell or Mr. Doras as Ihc candidate. As far as the Conservatives are concerned, they could not get a better man than Mr. Hurlbert. 1 learned from sources that the Liberals had tried to get Mr. Hurlbert as tlielr candidate, but Mr. Hurlbert, who previously had com- mitted himself to neither the Liberals nor the PCs, decided to run as a Tory. Mr. Russell said he declared his candidacy at the re- quest of "many friends In the Liberal party." These friends include Dorothy who feels the Liberals have a better chance with Mr. Russell as the candidate against the pop- ular Ken Hurlbert. Despite his popularity, Mr. Russell came In Tit a lime when Mr. Boras, for months the lone declared candidate, bad what one political observer called "wrapped up" the nomination. Mr. Boras is not going to give up. The Conservatives are unlikely to find ammunition In Hie fact that Mr. Russell lives outside the constituency. The ex- clusion into the Rocky Mountains riding is itself an unsatis- factory technicality, and Mr. Russell, member of a pioneer family which set foot in southern Alberta 90 years ago, Is a household word ir. Lethbridgc. It now appears that the Liberals will hold their nomination convention the end of next month is, if Pierre Trudcau calls (or a general election this year. Even if Mr. Trudcau delays the election, it Is slill possible for the convention to be held this fall: Just in case.
