Three editors of an underground magazine were given jail scntcnes of up to 15 months Aug. 5 for publishing an obscene "school kids' issue." Although the three appealed and were later released on bail, the case set off public discus- sion of the whole topic of cen- sorship and pornography. Richard Neville, James An- derson and Felix Dennis were sentenced U> 15, 12 and nine months in jail respectively for publishing an obscene article and sending it through the mail. They were acquitted of conspir- ing to corrupt public morals.

Their viewpoint is perhaps best explained by a recent article in another underground magazine, Frendz. "The act of murder Ls illegal, the description of it is not; the sexual act is not illegal, the de- scription of it said Frendz. "This is the glaring contradic- tion." The trial highlighted the di- lemma of a society which wants to maintain certain moral val- ues and protect the young while also wanting to uphold the right to free speech and a free press. Many people deplored the at- tention paid to Oz while Lon- don's bookshops selling hard- core pornography continue to flourish. Annual profits ill the trade have heen put as high as million year.

Phone 327-1541 PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE LETHBRIDGE WEST A leader in Business A leader in the Community A leader among People VOTE FOR A LEADER VOTE FOR AUTHORIZED BY DICK GRAY CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PREMIER Dear Mr. Strom, In the final days of the election campaign it became quite clear that after 36 years in power the Social Credit government is being seriously challenged. However, there are still those persons who, after a generation of voting for Social Credit are afraid to support another party. I have assured these people that a change of government will not brine ihe world crashing down on them. I recog- nize that over the years the Social Credit gavernment has developed some programs and created some structures that are of benefit to the people as a whole. But, Mr. Premier, I believe that the Social Credit party, having been in power for so long, has lost touch with many sections of the population. We in southern Al- berta are well aware of this fact. For example, it seems unreal that a city the size of Lethbridge does not have a regional office of the Alberta Health Care Commis- sion. Anybody doing business with the Commission has lo do it in writing to the Edmonton office. Think of the number of pensioners, the elderly and the ailing who are affected by this lack of service. Look at our agricultural industry. If is still the basic industry of the province, yet we find our farmers disappearing, and with it many of the important family values. Agriculture has hardly been talked about in the campaign. I raised the issue of the status of the Horn Tax Fund and was immediately deluged with various viewpoints, not only from residents of Lethbridge West but from the surrounding rural district. Such was the desire of the people to talk agriculture matters. Southern Alberta has watched central and northern Alberta get the lion's share of government attention. I think the absence of any strong Lethbridge voice in Edmonton is the main reason for this situation. And this is why I agreed to run in this election. People want a leader for Leth- bridge. I feel with my background in this community, with the many, many friends and acquaintances who have sought my advice, that I should be one of the two strong Progressive Conservative voices representing Lethbridge in the government. I think this is why many former Social Credit supporters have assured me that this time they are going to vote Progressive Conservative. Many young people who will be voting for the first time are going to vote For me. They want fresh ideas and new direction that will develop their interest in (he community. We cannot afford to lose our youth to other cities and other prov- inces. Now, it was pretty apparent to those who heard me in the campaign that I'm no great shakes as a public speaker. But I always have and always will speak straight from the shoulder, giving my honest opinion, making what I feel is the right decision after listening to the views of others. I didn't pretend to know every detail of the Progressive Conservative party platform I left that remarkable feat to our party leader Peter Lougheed. But I support it. What I have done is talk to the citizens of Lethbridge West about some of my own ideas which I believed were of interest to them. I see you've been reading my open letters to you, particularly the one in which I called for the provision of some decent recreation and cultural facilities. I was not surprised when you announced that Lethbridge would be included in the promised per captita grant for a facility to replace our arena that burned down earlier this year. By my arithmetic, that will work out to about Now, Mr. Strom, you know that's peanuts in today's construction costs. We'd be lucky to get a couple of peanut stands for the new arena for that price. Such is your government's generosity towards Lethbridge. I have promoted the development of the St. Mary Reservoir and Chin Lake as provincial parks. I have called for the completion of a divided highway between Lethbridge and Calgary. I have given my support for assistance to Lethbridge businessmen in getting started or expanding small businesss. As oie who on one occasion has seen his small business swallowed up by a big one, I fully appreciate the need for this kind of help. I have voiced my concern for senior citizens living on fixed incomes who are faced with rising taxes and costs. I have called for better and expanded out-patient services in Lethbridge hospitals to reduce costs and make health care more available to all. These are some of the things thaf interest me. These are some of the things I will work for in Edmonton. As a member of the government i will support the broader programs which will benefit the citizens of the province. As I said earlier, I feel my record of service and contribution to this com- munity speaks for itself. I want to lead Lethbridge into the areas of influence within the govrnment. I want to put the Gray stamp of leadership on those programs and projects that will benefit this city and its people. I need the support of the people of Lethbridge to make this possible. I am asking for this support on Mon- day. In closing, Mr. Strom, 1 have told fliose people in Lethbridge West who like me and my ideas to put a great big X bsside my name on the ballot. For those who do not like me, a little x will do. Best of luck, Mr. Premier. Yours sincerely, PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE WEST ;
