One of the ridings is Lethbridge East, where Pro- gressive Conservative fiich- ard E.'irtoji i.s runnijig liard against the Sccial Credit can- didate John Anderson. Both men are making Iheir first attempt to a provincial scat, and the volx: is expected to lie close. The Lclhhridgc Con- servative Dick Gray is also waging a tough fight, and his. open letters to the premier have gained considerable at- tention. But his Social Credit rival Dick Gnionwald, rely- ing heavily on the govern- ment's record, is thought to have the edge. The New Democratic Party candidates Klaas Buijert in Lethbridge West and Doug Poile in Lclhlmdge East ran almost a joint campaign, sharing a campaign office and attending a number of meetings together. While both arc expected to piclf up more than 10 per cent of the vole, the NDP fi- gures in Lethbridge in the election, neither candi- date is considered a poten- tial winner In the rural ridings around Lelhbridge, close figbl.1; are seen in Cardston and Pinlh- cr Creek Crowsnesl. It's a straight two way fight in Cardston, with Con- servative Larry Lang given an even chance for- mer cabinet minister K. W. Hinraan, attempting a come- back for Social Credit after four years out of the legisla- ture. The only tight three way race in the south is in Pinch- er Creek Crtnvsnest, where the Social Credit MLA Charles Drain is being chal- lenged by both Conservative Morgan Johnson and New Democrat Dr. Clarence Smith. A close vote k ex- pected. In the Macleod and Tabcr- Warner ridings, Social Credit won by comfortable margins in 1967. Barring a Conserva- tive sweep of the province Monday, Social Credit should hold these two seats, although perhaps with reduced major- ities. Premier Harry Strom in Cypress and Health and So- cial Development minister Ray Speaker in Little Bow should have no difficulty win- ning re-election. In Lethbridge, all candi- dates have been concentrat- ing on door to dcor cam- paigning. Richard Barton, who has been knocking on doors since the first day of the campaign, has personally visilcd nearly every home in his riding. He sees the most important issue in the cam- paign as "effective represen- tation for this community" in the legislature. His colleague in Lethbridge West, Dick Gray, has run "a personal campaign as op- posed to a party campajgn." He has not to every home in his riding, but those he has missed have been Polls open Monday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tlie polls will be open for Monday's provincial election from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters will be casting ballots at 48 polls in the Lethbridge West riding and 53 polls in Lethbridge East. Eligible voters whose names were omitted from the voters list may still be sworn in elec- tion day. The swearing in polls will be at the Evangelical Free Church, 12th Ave. and Ma- yor Magrath Drive, for Loth- bridge East voters and at the constituency reluming office, 2nd Avs. and 8th St., for Leth- bridge West voters. A person wishing to be sworn in must be accompanied by a qualified voter whose name appears on the voting list in the poll where he resides. Liquor outlets will be closed during voting hours, but will open at 8 p.m. visited by his wife on his behalf. The Social Credit candi- dates ore stressing the gov- ernment's record over the past !IG years and arguing there is "no alternative worth switching to." Both Mr. Gruenwaid and Mr. Anderson have Iwen go- ing door-Uxloor, although nei- ther has personally visited every home in their respec- tive ridings. The New Democrat'; have been stressing tax refornr and the need for increased oil and gas royalties in their campaign. Mr. Poile has visited about half the homes in Lethbridge East ,-nd his campaign work- ers covered most of the rest. toi-. Buijert has been to about of the homes in Lethbridge West. A public poll con- ducted in I he two dty by the Lclhbridge Herald last week Social Credit was leading in both city rid- ings. Ilpsulls In LrUinridgc East wcrr: Social Credit 43 per cent; C'dn.'K-rvativo 43 per cent; eight per cent. In Ixjtliliriilgc West: Social Crcdil 50 per cent; Con- servative 'i7 pur IT, per ccnl. Iji Ihe election, when there was only one Leth- bridge constituency, the city vole na.s roughly .Social Cre- dit -T) per cent; Conserva- tive lsn [XT cent; ]j per cunt and per cent. There are no Liberals run- ning in Lethbridge in Mon- day's election. Small groups seek share of spotlight By HERD JOHNSON Sl.iff Writer Outside (lie mainstream o( the political infighting now approaching its Aug. SO cli- max in Alberta, .smaller groups strive for their share of the spotlight. Largely ignnrcd by the me- dia, they continue lo send out press releases emphasizing the importance of their par- ticular concerns. There's an election going on and they would like a piece of the ac- tion. Some make Ihoir voices heard over Hie roar of the poht i c a 1 propaganda ma- chines; others don't. One of the more successful is the Yes for Daylight Sav- ing Time Society7. Long an is- sue in Alberta, the daylight saving time question is well- enough established lo give its MOVING? OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES proponents a definite advan- tage in making their views known. There's also the fact that daylight saving will be on the ballot it's an official issue. And its the type of thing peo- ple generally can relate to and understand. Not so fortimate is the Com- munist Party of Canada in its concern over the implica- tions of current U.S. economic policy for Alterta. There can be little question the issue is a legitimate one, hut it is also very complex. There may also be a natural tendency to consider it pri- marily a job for the federal Nonet heless the Alberta committee of the Communist Party has sent out a release outlining its position and em- phasizing the need for quick action. Don't look for it on the front page. At least one organization is attempting to influence the election by polling members, asking them to vote lor the candidate who agrees with their stand on certain issues. The Dominion of C a n a d a party asks its members to support lie candidate who op- poses compulsory bilingual- ism not a major issue in the campaign so far. The Committee for an In- dependent Canada in Calgary polled candidates in local rid- ings to see where they stood on issues relalcd to national sovereignty. Returns from the survey were described as "small."

City children are hack from Kinsmen Camp 11 orizon N'ine local retarded children relumed Friday from Kinsman Camp Horizon after 10 days of outdoor activity. The camp is located about 25 miles west of Calgary at Bragg Creek. Five of the children, ranging In age from. 11 to 14 years, came by camp bus and were greeted at the Lcthbridge Aux- iliary Hospital by their parents and Joe Green, president of Greenacrcs Khvanis, sponsors of the (rip. The olher four were brought home by their parents. Tile camp began Aug.

Camp Horizon is an exciting experience for all involved, but particularly for Kent Falkms, who is confined to a wheel chair in the hospital for most of the year, Mr. Green said Warm, windy iveekcnd tceather A fast-passing upper level dis- turbance brought some cloud and widely-scattered precipita- tion to the Lethbridge district Friday night, leaving sunny skies and warm weather in its wake. No measurable amount of rain fell at the Kenyon Field weather office overnight as the disturbance went through town on its way east. Behind it there is a weak ridge of high pressure that should ensure sunshine and brisk westerly winds along the foothills for the weekend. Winds in Lethbridge are like- ly to be between 20 and 35 miles an hour. High tempera- lures are forecast in the BO-90 degree range. Overnight loirs will hover around the 45-50 de- gree mark Friday's high of 92 was a record for Aug. 27, erasing the old high temperature of 89 set in 1922. If was the second conseculive day a record was shattered. Thursday's 91 degrees topped an 88 established in 1950. ;Red nationalist' scores Indian education history By ROB TURNER Staff Writer FORT MACLEOD Name your prison, the Indian reserve or a penal institute, the Cana- dian native makes an excep- tionally-good inmate, a self- styled Red nationalist charged here Friday. "The jailers like us my brothers and sisters make good inmates because they've had such good Howard Adams said. "The church-run residential schools which we had to attend for so many years were just like Dr. Adams said. "They were true institutions." Adams, a University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, pro- fessor tnd Canada's only Metis PhD., was addressing the final session of a five-day orien- tation for southern AlbcrtL teachers who will have Indian children in their classes. The church-operated schools, which controlled Indian educa- tion for much of this century until they were taken over by department of Indian affairs several years ago, have come in for especially bitter condemna- tion by the Indian speakers and others at the conference. Their successors, the so-call- ed integrated schools off the re- serve in surrounding white towns, have fared little better in the opinion of the Indians here. Dr. Adams called it "de- gradation, not integration He outlined for the teachers the systematic "colonization and inferiorization, the destruc- tion of our self-esteem" that Ca- nadian society has wrought on natives in the last 400 years. "The white man conquered, not only by the sword but also through subversion, through closer contact with the Euro- pean way of Dr. Adams said. "We were forced to supply furs ID. and buy our goods from, the Hudson Com- pany. We became rel'aled to the ivhile process of production and dependency arose." "Colonial officials insisted on having more and more mission- aries si> they could destroy our religion and then destroy our pride." "The missionaries got us to believe we were pagans and heathens, so they instilled with- in us a sense of guilt which crippled us. Our self-concept was weakened." "By creating us as savages, tr.3 white man gained the justi- fication he needed to seize our land, reasoning that, if we were savages, we needed their con- trol because the natives can't govern themselves." Dr. AdaniS laid the label of at the feet ot white i Canadians, "The attitude (hat the white man discovered America is ra- cism in ilsolf. Who do you think we were? "Now, there Is a new Red nationalism mounting which is vigorous, active, pro- gressive and building. It is re- creating, and re- generating nur society. We are slowly going back to our com- munal life which cares about I even-one, not just certain in- dividuals."
