Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Augusl 20, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 11 Police Dept. Ruled Out Of Bounds KITCHENER, Out. (CP) The Ontario Police Association decided today to place the Thunder Bay police department out of bounds to association members from outside the newly amalgamated city. The association says a ques- tion of ranks is at stake in the Thunder Bay department. Association administrator Dennis Latten of Toronto told delegates to the annual conven- tion that members of police forces in Port. Arthur and Fort William were in effect fired when the cities became Thunder Bay, Dec. 31, 1SG9. Early in January, each mem her of the two forces appearec before a judge to he sworn in as a constable of the Thunder Ba; police force. Mi'. Latten said tin oaths were administered onl) because of the change in name of the police force "and not for any other reasons." In April, police chief Onn Harty issued an order which in dicatcd that all members of the force had to write an examina tion to retain their present ranks or seek promotion. None of the policemen have written the examination, Mr. Latten said. If police do not write the ex- a m i n a t i o n s they cannot be promoted, he said, and the Thunder Bay police commission will hire men from outside the lorce. Mr. Latten said the problem will have to be solved in the courts and a motion is being prepared for submission to the Supreme Court of Ontario.

FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-AJ'hought 327-4581 THIRTY-FIVE YEARS IN OFFICE-Alberto's Social Credit Parly celebrates 35 continuous years in office Aug. 22 with a banquet to pa y tribute to William Aberhart the first Social Credit premier. Mr. Aberhart led his party to a landslide victory in 1935, taking 57 of the 63 seats in the legislature. He was succeeded in 1943 by E. C. Manning who retired in 1968 and handed over the reins to present premier Harry Strom Reign Of Social Credit Party Is Record In Political Field By JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (CP) As Al- berta's Social Credit parly pauses to celebrate a record 35 continuous years in office this month it is obvious that while the original radical ec- onomic doctrines have gone by the hoard, others may be on the horizon. It was on Aug. 22, 1335, that William Aberhart, a teacher- evangelist turned politician, led Scdal Credit to victory, taking 57 of the B3 seats in the legislature and killing the United Farmers of Alberta as a power in provincial politics. During the intervening years Social Credit's fiscal and monetary reform at- tempts have been shot down by the courts as be- yond the province's powers acd by many economists who said they were unworkable. Now, two premiers E. C. Manning succeeded Mr. Aberhart in 1943 and Harry Strom, now took over when Mr. Manning retired in party has openly ex- pressed interest in the "sec- ond income" loan-provision plan conceived by Louis Kelso, a San Francisco law- yer-economist. CALL TREND ADVERSE Social Credit still maintains measures must be found to re- duce and overcome what it calls the adverse economic trends which gained momen- tum in Canada in the late 1960s. But little is heard today In government circles about the original theories of Maj. C. H. Douglas, a British engineer, which called for a plan to con- trol banking and credit. Basi- cally the theory involved issu- ing a currency in the form of dividend payments to enhance purchasing power. Anders Aalborg, 56, Alberta provincial treasurer since 1964, in his budget speech this year expressed the govern- ment's interest in the Kelso plan. "During the months ahead it is our intention to make a comprehensive study of these interesting proposals which FOR RENT Building with Sq.

While geared to contempo- rary economic and political problems, the Kelso scheme contains elements which ap- pear to make it attractive to both Social Credit modernists and traditionalists. The aim of the Kelso plan is to make nearly everyone a shareholder in one or more private corporations through the provision of government loans or government-guaran- teed loans to individuals for the purchase of equity shares in corporations raising new capital. AGE MAY BE FACTOR There has been published speculation that the second-in- come plan may be a plank in the next provincial general will be in 1971 if Premier Strom follows tra- dition of calling an election every four years. The premier, whose cabinet of 17 has an average age of 51, faces the growing strength of the Progressive Conserva- tives led by.Peter Lougheed, a 42-year-old Calgary lawyer. S'ince assuming the leader- ship, Mr. Strom has not won a single byelection, both Edson and Strathcona seat held formerly by Mr. Manning to the Conservatives. Age may be a factor in the future of the party. The 10- member Conservative Opposi- tion in the 65-seat legislature has an average age of 42 and now is concentrating on nomi- nating young candidates while the Social Credit party's 55 members have an average age of 55. There also is the possibility the party may be moving to- ward two camps. One, mainly supported by the older, traditional mem- Douglas theories now es- poused by Real Caouette, 53, leader of the Ralliement des party which holds 14 seats in Ottawa, all from Quebec. EMBRACES NEW ARM The other embraces a new political arm of the provincial party set up in 1967. It is called the Alberta Social Con- servative Association and has support from several of the younger cabinet ministers and some of the executive assist- ants of ministers. The Social Conservative movement grew out of Mr. Manning's book calling for po- litical realignment in Canada. The new political arm of the party was organized to create machinery to organize both federal and provincial elec- tions and lay the groundwork for a revitalized national So- cial Credit party. Mr. Caouette has made two visits to Alberta in the last 15 months but public response has been less than over- whelming and top government ministers have not attended his meetings. The national Social Credit party had one of the largest booths at this summer's 10 day Edmonton Klondike Ex- position "to let people know we're on the said Abe Goerzen, an organizer and Caouette supporter. He said there had been z "tremendous resnonse" to at- tempts to rehabilitate the fed- eral movement, and the party aimed to have a candidate in every constituency for the next federal election. MOVE TO ORTHODOXY When asked about the movement's relations with the provincial partv, Mr. Goerzen named two supporting cabinet ministers, then pleaded that their names be withheld "for of embarrassing them." Fvpr F'v. took control of the provincial party, it has been moving more and more towards or- thodoxy. Mr. Strom, when he successfully contested the leadership race in 1968. prom- ised a "new era on a solid foundation." There has been a steady move toward relaxing liquor laws and attracting younger oeonle perhaps by the party's Bible-toting im- legacy of Mr. Aber- hart. founder of a Bible insti- tute in Calgary, and Mr. Man- ning with his every-Sunday to the Bible Hour broad- cast. The federal Social Credit Rally plans a banonet to pay tribute to the first Social Credit premier. Aug. 22 has been designated Aberhart Dav.
