No estimate has been made on the amount of damage done to the building and merchandise. Cause of the fire has not been determined.

No arrests made No arrests were made and no charges were laid after eight officers from the RCMP de- tachment at Pincher Creek, as- sisted by two constables from Lethbridge and one matron, searched the Westcastle Ski Rescrt, 26 milra southwest of Pincher Creek, for marijuana, late Saturday nigh'. An RCMP official said no ar- rests were made, nor were any planned as a result of the search. Most of the staff and ;uests were at a Pincner Creek dis- tr'ct guest ranch at the time son, of Robins Mitchell Watson. Thirteen bids were received for the job includiisig two from Lethbridge. Bird Construction Co. Ltd., and Kenwood Engin- eering Construction Ltd. sub- mitted tenders in the middle range of those received. Second lowest tender was Torn Cana Construction Ltd., of Calgary, at high- est was Laing Construction, Ltd. of Calgary, at All but one bid, from a Re- gina firm, were from Alberta contractors. A recommendation will be made to the U of L board of governors concerning which firm to -award the contract to, and the board will then seek approval from the Alberta uni- versities commission. both Mr. Watson and Bob Comstock, U of L co- ordinator of physical plant op- erations and development, said they expect construction to start during March with com- pletion about 14 months later in June or July of 1972. Mr. Watson said the low ten- ders would likely have been low his initial estimates if the mechanical and electrical trades had been on estimate as tha other trades were. He said the two high trades were about 20 per cent more than antici- pated. Mr. Comstock suggested this could be due to difficulties in estimating labor costs for the trades. Negotiations are cur- rently underway between trades unions and the construc- tion industry for a new salary schedule to take effect this April. Mr. Comstock said the univer- sity is "quite encouraged" by the tender prices the last major university construction planned during the current phase of U of L development.

Federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson said Saturday 'there is a feeling of optimism" among western Ca- nadian farmers about their economic condition. Farmers could expect "with some confidence" that record sales of the six major grains would be achieved this year, he told the annual meeting of tte Alberta Liberal Party. These records sales, totalling about 700 million bushels would probably provide a low- er cash flow than in the record year, 1966-67. In an interview, Mr. OIsoi said the stock of the federa Liberal party in Alberta has 'never been better than it is today." Four of the 19 federal seats in the province are held by lib- Is. All attended the three-day convention with to notable exception of MP Hug!

Lethbridge lawyer John Bor- as said southern delegates seemed "nearly 100 per cent" behind holding a leadership convention. The only acknowledged lead- ership candidate to date is St. Albert businessman Robert iussell, who has been unsuc- cessful in winning the position n two tries.

Brian Stevenson of Cdlgary, in a study of the leadership presented at the convention, said blame for the "stagna- tion" of the party, for jack of attempts at organization or preparedness, and for the defi- cit financial situation "ap- pears to rest solely on the pre- sent executive." li the annual meeting seemed to give new strength to the Li- Lwals, the event was still light years away from being of the confident, election-pre- pared calibre as that of the Progressive Conservatives one week earlier. ileld in the same hotel, the Conrervfliive convention had attracted more than peo- pic including 56 candidates.

Dr. Cranley, 57, contended any leadership hopeful should have proved himself at UK polls before contesting the lead- ership. He said the convention deci- sion was part of a conspiracy by Russell backers to push him into the position, as no other candidates appeared to be in- terested. He said there would be only "token competition" for Mr. Russell. 'He quoted Federal Agricul- ture Minister Bud Olson, one of three Alberta MPs who attend- ed the convention, as saying the leadeship convention "coulc be a small disaster, but not a one." (There were indictions at the convention that Mr. Bussel would not get the leadership by acclamation. Calgary lawyer Mike MacDonald, another un successful presidential candi date, is believed interested in the job, and at least one othei name has been mentioned.) For the more than 300 dele- gates to the convention, the meeting was noticeably more optimistic and less self-destruc live than last year's event.

Mr. Sinclair withdrew before the election. Mr. Peard, a graduate ci the U of L and currently pursuing courses in English, said he ran for the position because the party needs to have a more youthful image "instead of the old bagman, patronage Another Lethbridge execu- tive hopeful went down to feat. Dr. W. J. Cranley, city physi- cian, was beaten out for die president's petition by Eo'iTion- ton Alderman B. C. "Chester" Tanner. Mr. Tanner, son of Mr.-md Mrs. Byron Tanner, was born in Cardston and took his high school education in Lethbridge. He left shortly after gradua- tion. Mr. and Mrs. Tanner, his parents, left Lethbridge in the mid-lS50s and currently reside in Vancouver.

Aaron Shtabsky of monton was chosen treasurer I "There are six times more Liberals in other political par- ties !han in this party." Dr. Cranley said the self- seekers should "go to the Bench, go to the Senate, go and leavj us alone." He said the party must change its image and become creditable to voters. Dr. Cranley ran on a plat- form staling the party should spend the next few years build- ing ii-self up rather than elect- ing a leader and trying to run any kind of candidates in the next election. One Lethbridge delegate said mucf, of what Dr. Cranley said was mie, but his statements were delivered in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Harry Knowles was elected president of the Lethbridge Country Club at the annual shareholders meeting. Joe Lakie is the new. president and Glenn Morrison wiii continue as honorary sec- retary. Dr. Eddie Cairns, Berry Kimery and Al Kenwood were elected to the board, replacing Doug Boyer, Mark Grant and Ron Peake. Mr. Peake will continue on the board as past president. Other continuing members are Doug Sutherland, Keith Lees and Bill Broadfoct. The shareholders suggested the directors consider an in- crcafe ir> iees to provide for a balanced budget in 1971.
