Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Lougheed says provincial game plan forbids move to national captain Concluded from Page 24 "He has the instinct to move in for the kill and he usually senses skilfully where the vulnerable spot in his opponent's defence is. But when stirred, he has a tendency to indulge in overkill." Five-foot-eight and in good physical condition, the one-time defensive halfback for Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference still operates at a pace that tires many who try to keep up. He bounces as he walks He told reporters late last year while developing energy policies and work- ing out an oil-price deal with Ottawa that he couldn't "afford the luxury of feeling tired." People who knew him in Calgary before he became premier describe him as stubborn, always willing to commit himself and un- willing to fall short of his goals. As a warm-up for politics, he won the presidency of the students' council at the University of Alberta where he obtained bachelor of arts and bachelor of law degrees. He gained a master's de- 4-H reports Lethbridge district 4-H council met Nov 8 in Lethbridge.

SOUTHERN ALBERTA ABERDEEN ANGUS gree in business adminis- tration from Harvard and soon afterwards joined Mannix Co. in Calgary as junior counsel. Four years later, he was vice- president of the giant construction firm. The next year he was direc- 32 a brilliant business success. Moves up He courted Jeanne Estelle Rogers in the same determined manner, getting in bookings for dates with the popular campus beauty long ahead of competitors. They were married in 1952 and have two sons and two daughters. In 1962, with legal and business experience behind him, he left Mannix for private politics. When he won the Con- servative leadership in 1965, the party lacked even a single seat in the legislature It had been without a leader for a year., Mr. Getty says Mr. Loug- heed would often go to four or five meetings a night to speak to groups of three or four, maybe a dozen, to build the party. "He gave himself at all of these rallies. He worked as hard for a group of three or four as he did for larger rallies. That's what I respected most." Politics were nothing new. His grandfather, James A. Lougheed, became a Conservative senator at 35. His grand- mother was the daughter of a senator. But Peter Lougheed was scarcely known in the prov- ince dominated by the strong hand of Social Credit Premier Ernest Manning. When an election was called in 1967, only Mr. Lougheed and five other PCs gained seats. It was small representa- tion but it gave the leader and his party a permanent platform and a certain momentum in the eyes of Albertans. Premier Manning retired and was replaced by the more folksy Harry Strom, a shy farmer from southern Alberta. Gains power The Conservatives won the Manning seat in a 1968 byelection and became electrified. Mr. Lougheed increased his hectic ef- forts. When the 1971 elec- tion was called, the Conservative leader began a campaign blitz never before seen in Alberta. The cry was: "It's time for a change. It worked. Alberta had a Conservative administra- tion for the first time, winning 49 of the 75 legislature seats while Social Credit dropped to 25. The New Democratic Par- ty had one. The Conservatives had a new star. Mr. Lougheed was immediately mention- ed as a likely candidate for the national leadership. But the new premier steered firmly away from any suggestion that he might be a successor to Robert Stanfield as national Conservative leader. Mr. Getty has a hard time seeing Mr. Lougheed working at anything besides politics. "He's a political animal, maybe not in the accepted sense of opportunism, but he sometimes reacts politically where others might react emotionally or intellectually."
