A preliminary search turned up no trace of the man and Tuesday niglil a tracking dog and RCMP handler were brought in. A second dog was later added. An RCMP official said the hot weather is believed to have dis- sipated the scent, impeding the dogs' ability lo track the lost man. An Albcrla Forest Seivicc helicopter from Calgary, hired by C o 1 c in a n Colleries, was brought lale Wednesday af- ternoon. Thursday morning a 40-man search paity comprising 22 fire- fighters from the Qrowsnest Pass Forest Reserve and 18 Ju- nior Forest Rangers conducted a ground search under the direction of G. A.

The New Democratic Party is trailing badly in both con- stituencies. The door-to-door survey con- ducted in Lethbridge East shows Social Credit with 49 per cent support, the Conservatives with 43 per cent, and the NDP with only eight per cent. In Lethbridge West, the re- sults were Social Credit, 50 per cenl; Conservative, 37 per cent; and NDP, 13 per ccnl. However, it is difficult lo de- termine how accurately the survey reflects actual voter support, because of a relative- ly limited sample. Only 46 el- igible voters replied in Lelh- bridge West, while 13 respond ed in Lelhbridge East. A substantial number of peo- ple conlaclcd were slill unde- cided (they were not included in the while many others refused to reply to the question. In addition, many people were not at home when the survey was conducted. Nevertheless, The Herald's poll suggests Richard Barton, Conservative candidate vn Lethbridge East, has made the biggest gain over the 1967 elec- tion results. He trails his Soc- red rival John Anderson by only six per cent, whereas So- cial Credit had a 12 percentage point advantage over the Con- servatives in the Lethbridge East area in 1967. IjfthhridgB West Conserva- tive Dick Gray has also nar- rowed the 17 per cent gap existed between the par- ties in that riding in 1967, but vicinity 22nd St. S.
