Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August UETHBRIDGE HERALD-5 Lewis blames Tories for NDP vote losses DAVID LEWIS OTTAWA (CP) David Lewis is blaming the Progres- sive Conservatives for the New Democratic Party's shattering losses in the July 8 general election. Voter reaction against Con- servative proposals for wage and price controls scared Canadians into electing a ma- jority Liberal government, the NDP leader said in an interview Monday. Mr. Lewis lost his own seat of York South in the election and saw his party's strength in the Commons dwindle to 16 seats from 31. Canadian troops policing lines OTTAWA (CP) Military reports from Cyprus Monday say that Canadians are going about the work of policing lines separating Turk from Greek forces, collecting dead bodies and occasionally preventing violations of last Friday's ceasefire. One body, found in a burned out Turkish tank, was a female wearing a Turkish army uniform. Col. Clay Beattie, leader of the Canadian contingent, said it would take about five days to help recover the bodies of Greek National Guardsmen killed during last week's Tur- kish offensive. A number of Greek bodies were found Monday during a trip into the Turkish sector of Nicosia with a group of Greek soldiers. "To add to the painful and sad situation, one Greek soldier found his own dead Col. Beattie reported. The Cypriot information of- fice said a total of Greek fighters had been killed during the three-day offensive last week and that another were wounded. There were no reports of Turkish casualties other than the woman in the tank. The military messages also report a violation of a Geneva convention on arms. A "dum- dum" bullet, banned under the convention because the slug mushrooms on impact, was found in a Greek National Guard position. As well, the reports say both Greek and Turkish forces are building up on the Larnaca Road just outside Nicosia in an area patrolled by Canadian members of the UN peace force. "The morale of the Greeks is the reports said, "they have pledged a strong fight." Col. Beattie says 11 Cana- dian observation posts have been reestablished on lines separating the two sides. But one was occupied by two Turks as well as two Canadians and was flying both UN and Turkish flags. During a tour of zones divid- ing the two sides, the reports say. Col. Guy Lessard, com- mander of the Canadian Air- borne Regiment, discovered that Turkish forces had occu- pied the residence of the Italian ambassador. Greeks nearby protested that the Turks had crossed the traditional dividing line and, when more Turks arrived, "the situation became tense." When yet another Turk drove around the corner in an army vehicle, "six angry Greeks wanted to shoot." Lessard reportedly shielded the Turk as he got out of the vehicle and into a Canadian armored personnel carrier. Later, the Turks withdrew. Healing Substance- Shrinks Piles, Checks Itch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...and repair damaged tissue. A renowned research institute with a healing substance (Bio- Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimuhttes grow ill of new tissue. Hio-Dync is oll'ercd in ointment and supposi- has fouml a unique healing sub- stance the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It re- lieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing lory form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrink- ing hemorrhoids, Preparation II lubricates and makes elimina- tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause iif the injured, inllamed tissues. One hemorrhoidal case his- tory after another reported "very .striking, improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved actual reduction or retract ion (.shrink ing) took place. And most improvement was maintained in cases here clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal condi- tions. All this was accomplished of hemorrhoids.

Preparation But he added that he had planned to resign the leadership anyway to clear the way for a younger leader. Mr. Lewis, 65, talked with enthusiasm about his new post at the Institute of Canadian Studies at Carleton University here. "I make no bones of the fact that the election was a very serious setback for the par- he said. "However, I don't think the results of the election effect the place of our party and our ideas in the scheme of things. I don't think our future influence will be diminished." He said recent public opi- nion surveys tend to confirm his belief that "the working people" who traditionally sup- port the NDP bolted to the Liberals in large numbers on election day. They wanted no part of the Conservative prices and in- comes policy and voted Liberal to ensure that Mr. Stanf ield's party did not win. "There is a kind oi rough logic in what the working peo- ple Mr. Lewis said. "I don't feel bitter about it. I never feel bitter about the democratic process." FACED HAZARDS By voting against the May 8 budget and helping to bring on the election the New Democrats knew they were facing .some serious hazards, he said. "There is always the danger of the majority government he said. But neither he nor his party strategists were prepared for the upset that followed. With the NDP losses came an end to the party's crucial role in the Commons. The Liberals with 141 seats no longer need support for sur- vival. He said he did not anticipate the swing towards a majority government that occurred in the urban areas. He was espe- cially surprised by his own de- feat to the Liberals and by those of John Harney and Terry Grier in the Toront ridings of Scarborough West and Lakeshore. He said he did not know if public dissatisfaction with NDP Premier David Barrett of British Columbia was a fac- tor in the party's losses in that province. NDP strength in B.C. fell from 11 seats to two. "I have nothing but admira- tion for the policies and legislation of the Barrett Mr. Lewis said "but there may have been some public kickback against it." Some of Mr. Barrett's pro- grams were "either not ex- plained or not understood" by B.C. voters, he said. He scoffed at suggestions that the NDP has been drifting away from its traditional roots as a socialist movement and becoming more of a practical political party that responds to public pressures. "We are" still very much a socialist he said. "If we had been preoccupied with the political practicalities we would have been more concerned about avoiding an election." He said he will take no part in choosing his successor at the party's next convention, expected to be held in the spring. Mr. Lewis said he never in- tended to remain beyond next year as party leader. If he had won his seat he would still re- sign the leadership. And he has no plans of running again. Now it's time for someone else to take over, he said. Mr. Lewis is looking forward to the quieter academic life. Carleton was one of several universities to offer him a post. He plans to do some writing there, either on his memoirs or a more abstract work on socialism and its place in Canadian politics. Sot S.R.P.S1.59 Scented Unseen ted 6 oz. S.R.P. No agreement forecast at sea law conference CARACAS (AP) A top United Nations official pre- dicted Monday that the United Nations Law of the Sea conference, scheduled to end Aug. 29, will not reach agreement on a package deal on use and protection of the oceans. "We are very far away from a package UN Under- secretary General Constantine Stavropoulos said. Delegates representing 148 countries at the conference initially agreed to work on a so-called package deal on key issues of the 100-item agenda. Briefing representatives of non governmental or- ganizations attending the conference, Stavropoulos said that at least another 12 to 15 weeks of negotiations would be needed to reach an agreement and another six weeks to polish it. "But the conference here did not said Stavropoulos, since delegations were able to out- line their positions on several important issues. UN officials have announced that the treaty drafting committee will hold its first meeting Wednesday. Stavropoulos said the conference should reach agreement on six or seven key matters before a sea treaty can be drawn.
