Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, August 25, 1971 THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERA1D Mobile camper trailer ideal for politicians New low-cost ski vacation I plan offered by airline MONTREAL tCP) A new and northeastern U.S. as of Oct. low-cost ski vacation package to 1. No cut in reserve units EDMONTON (CP) A new S( Albert PREMIER STROM Has posh job PICTER LOUGItEED Borrowed bus GRANT jVOTLEV forums BOB JtlJSSKLL market seems to be developing Jor the mobile camper trailer, originally designed lor people who wanted to "Ret away from it all" in comfort. It's Hitching on with politi- cal leaders as the ideal vehicle lo get where the action is in election campaigns. Allan Blakeney used a mo- bile trailer to campaign in Sas- katchewan, and look what it did for him. The New Demo- cratic Party crushed the Lib- erals in June, made off with 45 of 60 seats, and Mr. Blaken- ey became premier. TRAILER In Harry Slrom is already the premier, but he's using a rented air-con- ditioned trailer in a campaign to keep the Social Credit party in power. The Allrerta election is Monday, Aug. 30. The Progressive Conserva- lives, the leading challengers lo Social Credit, started off in an executive bus loaned to them by a Calgary business firm. But the company needed the bus back for its own use, and party leader Peter Lough- eed also turned to the mobile trailer although his officc- on-wheels is not as posh as Mr. Strom's unit. But the trailers can't go ev- erywhere, so Mr. Strom and Mr. Lougheed have often been forced to switch to light air- craft and automobiles. The Con- servatives rented four light planes for a COO mile tour of the Peace the second largest in the prov- ince. CASUAL APPROACH Premier Strom used all types of veliicles one week, as he sped miles through north- west, northeast and west-cen- tral Alberta and stopped in more than 40 communities. He used a bus, plane, car and la- ter, even a horse. The premier describes it as "a different kind of which dictates a casual ap- proach, but which lie also feels requires his appearance in all 75 ridings. 0 r v i s Kennedy, executive secretary of the Alberta Social Credit League, said Ihe 1971 campaign is proving much har- der than the one in when Social Credit won 55 of 65 seals. Mr. Kennedy is still confi- dent Social Credit will be re- lumed with a majority for the ninth straight time, but con- cedes that what were once con- sidered safe seats could be in danger. When the legislature was dis- solved July 22, Social Credit had 54 seats, the Conservatives 10, and one was vacant. Hedis- trihution has increased the number of seats in the legisla- ture to 75 from 65. THOUBLE SPOTS Mr. Kennedy lists Spirit Riv- er Fairview, where NDP leader Grant Nolley is a can- didate, Lclhnridgc and Mac- Icod as trouble spots. Through a seemingly endless round of breakfasts, lunches and coffee parties, Mr. Strom has adopted a leisurely "get- ting lo know you" pace. Rather than actively seeking out people to shake hands with, he strolls along, stopping for lengthy chats. Mr. Strom's low key ap- proach contrasts sharply with the hectic, split-second timing of Air. Lougheed's lours. To Mr. Notlcy, it's rather "monotonous and boring." lie IJie fi'irrnce of old- style political forums, and would much prefer to lake part in face lo face meelings with Mr. Strom and Mr. Lough- Liberal leader !5ob Russell is rclrcasc.i to put his parly's platform before people in of the province. .STILL SO.ME COLOIt Eul there still some color in campaign.

Ulr Loughccd was made an honorary chief of Ihe four In-. dian bands of the Ilobbema re- serve, receiving the traditional feathered headdress and the ti- tle Chief Thunderbird. Actor Marvin even got into the act. In Calgary to film a movie, he took a stroll dur- ing a break and ran into a So- cial Credit picnic and was in- troduced to Premier Strom. the Canadian Rockies for the 1971-72 season was announced by Air Canadj Tuesday. an all-inclusive rale deal costing S250.GO from Toronto to either Edmonton or Calgary and S2GG from Montreal for individual bookings, includes air fare, ground transportation, accommodation for a minimum of six days and ski'lifts.

Officials describes the viroid found in the potato disease as a "very small molecule of free RNA (ribonucleic The major difference between vi- roids and viruses, the agricul- ture department said, aside from the great differences in size, are the viroids' lack of the protective protein coat which Complaint bureau set up OTTAWA (CP) A special complaint bureau is being es- tablished in llie trade depart- ment lo gather information on specific damage done to Cana- dian industry by the new 10- per-cent United States import surcharge.

A parks spokesman said a fire along Highway 5 between Fort Smith and Hay River, N.W.T., was intermittently cut- ting telephone lines between the two communities. The road, which was closed earlier this month because of dense smoke, was still in op- eration. Hot, dry, windy weather was hampering the 85 men, eight bulldozers, six helicopters and Canso water homher in the fight against the flames.
