The chief said later that Bar- naby was shot about 30 minules later when he went to the school to see if his brother was near the building.

Conservative leader Peter Lougheed four weeks earlier had filled the same 750-seat hall. Mr. Strom said he had no- ticed the Calgary Herald had come out against the Social Credit government and "I have full expectation that the Ed- monton Journal will come out openly against us as well." He said the CBC has indi- cated its preference for the last year and "it wasn't on our side." The premier said a party that has the Calgary Herald, the CBC and the Journal against it "can't be all bad." .Mr. Strom also criticized the SHEEPISH Sheepish-looking creuture wearing a custom made raincoat goes walking in the rain with Joan Reid, 9, ot Salmon Arm B.C.

Referring specifically to T. C. Douglas, former NDP na- tional leader, he said the im- ports are bringing negative so- cialistic ideas Irto the prov- ince.

The move prompted the prime min- ister to cut short European stroy the economic base of that province's agricultural indus- try." He reiterated the Social Credit government's 36-year record and listed the four ba- sic principles which he said provide the solid foundation and direction for' his parly. The premier said there had been serious challenges before 1940 when major parties banded together in support of so-called Independent candi- dates and in when the Liberal party was a threat.

Eleven persons were kept in hospital for treatment of inju- ries ranging from shock to the spinal fractures, following the accident on the Trans-Canada Highway 12 miles west of this interior-British Columbia city.

Ben- son and Trade Minister Jean- Luc Pepin headed a Canadian delegation to Wasliington to seek Canadian exemption from the additional duties Mr. Trudean is said to be arric- ous to follow this up with a per- sonal meeting with Mr. Nixon, jut sources say he to iave this meeting in Canada for two reasons. The first is that Mr, Trudeau went to Washington two years ago to meet the U.S. president, and at that time he invited Mr. Nixon to come to Canada. He would like to see this invitation fulfilled before making a second trip to Washington. The second reason, say the iources, is that the government is not happy with Opposition find press statements that Mr. Benson and Mr. Pepin went to Washington "with cap in hand" to seek favors for Canada. A trip to Washington by Mr. Tru- deau would add to these com- plaints. So far there is no indication that Mr. Nixon will come to Ot- tawa in the next few months, they say, but (here were some reports before the trade crisis developed that he was consider- ing a Canadian visit for late this year. The sources say the "prelimi- nary feelers" are going out through personal channels. So far, they say, there have been no discussions through the nor- mal diplomatic channels. Lougheed raps Social Credit policies CALGARY (CP) Progres- sive Conservative Leader Pe- ter Lougheed tore into the last week of the provincial election campaign Monday with a blast at the Social Credit govern- ment's policies. The occasion was the Conser- vative's only major rally in the leader's home city and it was attended by 15 area candidates, their supporters and casual voters. .All-. Lougheed lold the crowd the Social Credit policies were so bad the party was "afraid lo stand on its record and came into the election with a plat- form of gimmicks and give- auays." The government's perform- ances lias deteriorated and "particularly in the last two or three years has been very, very poor." "They've got talent they've got one talent a talent of whitewash and hiding under the nig serious prob- lems. "I'll give 'em credit for that talent nnd that's about all." REITERATES STAND ed, he will make sure a sales tax is not introduced. What Albertans did not know was that while they were not paying a sales tax, their in come taxes were 20 per cent higher than those in British Co- lumbia and Ontario. Mr. Lougheed also criticized the government's approach to building roads with money bor- rowed at eight per cent inter- est when four years ago the money could have been ac- quired at four per cent. The government had also fallen down in not allowing mu- nicipal government to function frtelv, in education, health and particularly in mental hcallh where a government-commis- sioned study has been com- pleted for two years but left unimplemented. In mental health the "record is nothing short of disgraceful because tbe funds haven't been supplied." This was one area that would receive first attention from a Conservative government.
