Premier Harry Strom said Wednesday night He bid 3 wildly-enthusiastic overflow crowd in the 2.700- 5L'at Jubilee Auditorium that his Social Credit party is a party of reform, "a people's party." He said he offered reform without socialism and that the New Democratic Party leaders a Conservative govern- ment because Ihe Conserva- tives are a party of special privilege and interesls.

"If Altertans have been tak- ing arsenic for 36 years, Uiey must have very strong consti- tutions; they appear to be healthier than ever." Thousands o[ people now are moving into Alberta from socialist governed Saskatche- wan and Manitoba, he said. "And Mr. Lewis should try some of our Social Credit ar- senic it's just the tiling to settle your stomach after you've tried to eat the waffle." He said the Alberta govern- ment record is without paral- lel in Canada with a demon- strated ability to lead with sound management and fiscal policies which had left it the only province without a retail sales lax. It has provided one of the lighest standards of living in Canada and the highest stand- ards of social and educational services in the country, Mr. Strom said. And, his party was commit- project is near completion and looks very favourable." Today, Mr. Strom tours the Lloydminster area wilh a rally planned for Calgary Friday evening. Saturday, he travels in the Medicine Hat area and spends Sunday in his own rid- ing of Cypress. Mr. Manning in his address said Alberta has received far more return from its oil and natural gas development in comparison with royalties paid by companies in foreign coun- tries and added that Ihe New Democratic Party spokesmen in the election campaign were "misrepresenting" the facts about oil royalties. "In addition to the government royalty, the oil companies pay casii bonuses to obtain leases, rental on the leases, provincial and federal corporation t a x, municipal, school and hospital taxes and anything else that's he said. Mr. Manning said that in the countries referred to by Ihe NDP, tlie oil companies deal with only one central govern- ment which collects only one pay- ted to responsible change based net royalty as Ihe total on "sound principles which ment the firm makes, have proven Iheir worth in Ai- "When you compare these berta j two, you will find that your He said his government plans Social Credit government has lo build child-development cen- tres in the cities in which ex- day care and pre- school programs will be offered received more generous re- turns for its citizens than is the case in these foreign coun- tries." TFomen's Lib marches in U.S. NEW YORK (CP) Wilh the acquisition of political power and equal rights with men their goals, women's lib- e r a I i o n groups planned marches and activities in many parts of the Unilcd Stales loday. Craning a year to Ihe day after the firsl major femiuist demonstrations in recent years, today's activities are intended to focus renewed at- Icnlion on demands made by Ihe women's liberation move- ment. Organizers of Ihe demon- strations say they are seeking equal political power, child care centres, abortion and conlraceplion rights, equal ed- ucation and employment, and equality under the law. Marches were scheduled for New York, Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles. The Na- tional Organization for Women planned a "speak- out" in Washington (o push for passage of an equal rights amendment to the constitu- tion. they can't be blamed for turn- ing lo more lucrative fields. Mayor Sykcs said builders have stated that their struggle to get costs down so social housing is available "has got them nothing but political abuse" which has damaged the reputation of the firms. RCMP seise neivs tape by NFU head CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) The RCMP Wednesday seized a tape recording of a news conference held Monday by Na- tional Farmers Union Presi- dent Roy Atkinson of Saska- toon. The RCMP, acting on a war- rant issued In Summerslde where Mr. Atkinson faces charges of conspiracy to inti- midate, enter the news room of radio station CFCY here and seized the tape. Mr. Atkinson was arrested by the HCMP near B o r d e n, P.E.I, last Saturday as several hundred farmers continued their protests against govern- ment farm policies. I He was released on ball i and is to appear in court again i Aug. 31. A CFCY spokesman said the station had no advance notice action. The the station of the RCMP spokesman said would ment. make no further com- fit to Lhc whole of the United States. Seventeen members of Ihe House of Representatives, led by pipeline foe Les Aspin, as wall as a fellow Wisconsin Dem- ocrat, Senator William Prox- mire, signed the letter. Although Aspin and olher op- p o n e n t s have attacked the Alaska project mainly on grounds of conservation in the past, the current opposition came largely on economic grounds. They contended that a Canadian pipeline would help reduce the current wide dispari- ties in oil prices between the West Coast and the higher-cost area of the U.S. Middle West and East Coast. "We strongly urge you to in- struct Secretary of the Interior Rogers Morton to deny permits for the construction of the pro- posed trans-Alaska the congressmen wrote to Nixon. In an accompanying state- ment, they said it is "impera- tive" that the economics of bringing oil from Alaska's North Slope to the mainland lie studied. If such a study is under- taken, it is clear it will reveal that, a Canadian pipeline would economically benefit the nation as a whole far more than would the proposed Alaska pipeline." Couliuue search for imssmg Blairmore man BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The search for John How- rath of Blah-more, missing since Aug. 16, is continuing. The area in which he is thought to have been lost has been scoured by helicopter, po- lice, tracking dogs and large, well-organized search groups to no avail. Today small groups of local volunteers, who are familiar with the rugged, dense terrain, are combing the perimeters ot the main search area ivnilc maintaining z close liaison with Ihe RCMP. With oil prices now said to be 10 per cent higher in liie Mid- west and 20 per cent higher In the East than they are on Uie West Coast, the congressmen said proposals to bring North Slope oil la the West Coast "will only serve to further decrease prices there and thus increase price differentials." They recalled tliat s cabinet committee on oil-import con- trols had recommended that the price differentials be eliminated in favor of a uniform price sys- tem for all of the U.S. And the New England governors' confer- ence was in the process of filing a court suit to challenge the le- gality and constitutionality of the price differentials. The congressmen said that al- though a Canadian pipeline would be more expensive and taken longer to build, the line would still be "extremely profit- able" for the oil companies and the delay would affect neither national security nor profitabil- ity. "There are some very basic and compelling economic rea- sons for construction of a Cana- dian pipeline. If consumers in all sections of the country are to be treated by the federal gov- ernment in a rational and non- discriminatory manner, it is very important that Ihe econom- ics of the Canadian pipeline be fully studied." An interior department deci- sion on Uie 73 billion pipeline proposal is expected shortly. Secretary Morton has already indicated he will approve the project, although the terms of the permit are in question. It approved, the trans-Alaska pipeline would still face the prospect of lengthy court battles promised by U.S. conservation groups. Canada has protested lo Uie U.S. about the proposal on the grounds that oil-bearing tankers would threaten the Canadian West Coast. But Ottawa has not actively pushed the Canadian pipeline alternative because the proposal is still under consider- ation. Irish tighten guard BELFAST (CP) British Iroops tightened their guard loday on Belfast's public build- ings following Hie bombing of an electricity board headquar- ters Wednesday that killed a 23-year-old man and injured 35 persons, many of them young women workers. Armored cars today patrolled tile Malone Road, a smart resi- dential district near the scene of the blast in Ihe offices of the Northern Ireland Electricity Board. Another bomb made up of five and 10 pounds of a form of dy- namite went off overnight in an- other electricity board building in Dungannon, about 40 miles from Belfast. No one was hurt but the building had extensive damage. Soldiers today were seen in the grounds of Queen's Univer- sity litre and many oilier public buildings. The British army in the past lias tried, lo remain in Uie back- ground until trouble erupted. But observers here said today Ihe British force sta- tioned in Ulster appeared to be creating a more obvious mili- tary presence. The explosion Wednesday triggered a wave of indignation.
