A local Socred organizer said the winds will blow favorably for (he Socreds here, while an NDP official said the chango will come in the New Demo- cratic Party's favor. "I must confess I was sur- prised at the said the 58-year-old former Alberta premier. "I have known Mr. Bennett for a numlxir of years and vorked very closely with him after becoming premier "The work Mr. Bennett has done in B.C. was outstanding and I would have thought would have resulted in bis re-election. But Ihe winds of change havo caught up to Mr. Bennett as they have in eight of the 10 governments in the last elec lion." Mr. Strom said the Socred defeat has more to do with a new national desire for change than situations inside the prov- ince. "Western Canada has alway; voted with a reform or prolesl attitude and is now just aboul totally he said.

NDP campaign, said the Lethbridge candidate. The defeat of the Socred Ben- nett government also resulted 'rom Ihc "abysmal" condition of B.C. health and education and anti government state- ments from B.C. teacher and medical groups, he said. PHEDICTED OUTCOMK Mr. Hoffman, a mechanics instructor at Lcthbridge Com- munity College, said he suc- cessfully predicted the outcome of recent elections all NDP wins in Manitoba, Saskatch- ewan and Wednesday in B.C. as well. He said he did not predict Hie number of seats, but fellow NDP members here did. Lethbridge NDP Constituen- cy Association president Tom McLeod was high with a pre- piclion of 41 NDP seats in B.C., while former party candidate Charlie Buijert said the NDP would take a low of 20 seals. The new Barrel! government in fact won M seats in the 55- seat B.C. legislature. SnCKRUSHOPEFUL Despite the humbling British Columbia defeat Social Credit could pick up sizeable gains ir the coming federal election, Al Hancock of Raymond, southern Alberta Socred organizer said today. Tlw New Democratic Party defeat of the 20 year olr B.C. Soercd government was "almost" as great a surprise as the Progressive Coaserva live ousting of the 38 year-old Alberta Socred administration :ie said. Because had fol lowed the campaign in 1071 more closely than tire) have the B.C. election, the dc- feat here was more spec tacular, said the Insuranci agent. UPSET? Both the Liberals and th> Progressive Conservatives wil suffer federally from the B.C election results, lie said, leav ing voters to choose Iwtwcen the "socialist" New Democrat Party and the "free enter prise" Socreds. "There could be as big an up set federally as ttierc was in Alberta and Mr. Han cock said of the overturning o both provincial government within one year to the clay o each other. "ff Stanficld was in he'd lx doing much the same as Tm dean is Mr. Hancock said. "I can't see any possibi ily of a turn away from the lef and we're stampeding dowi ttie road lo [be left unti people realize there's some- thing wrong with our monetar system." A guaranteed "dividend" t all citizens, of the kind Her Caoueltc, national Socred leat er, has is the onl solution to problems like infla lion and unemployment, sai Mr. Hancock.

Construction jobs lacking in south Unemployment In southern construction trades is at 20 per cent or triple the na- ional rate, says a Lcthbridge union spokesman. "'There is still tremendous unemployment during a time of year when it should be miiii- mal." Unless millions of dollars vorth of promised federal and municipal construction projects let off the ground the job situa- ion for the coming months will reach extreme, he said. Federal projects such as the multi-million dollar expansion ilanned (or the Lethhridge Re- e a r c h Station are possibly >eing held up by election fever, tic said. Generally, he said, there is a lack of projects in every area except public housing. Public housing is booming but private contractors are employ- ing non-union labor "at scab wages." M any of the unemployed union men are "living off their savings" or are taking lower- paying jobs. Others are currently living off unemployment insurance, hut the union spokesman said these persons will be in trouble when the U.I. runs out. The area's second most labor intense employer, the mobile home and travel trailer indus- try, is stable except In occa- sional instances where there are layoffs. And the layoffs arc temporary.
