OriN PtaM 328-7751 'PCs based on expediency, opportunism' The Alberta Social Credit Party provides a'viable alternative to a provincial government that is based on expediency and opportunism, says party leader Werner Schmidt. Speaking to the Lethbridge West constituency annual meeting Monday night, Mr. Schmidt said the Progressive Conservatives are destroying freedom of choice by individuals. "As never before we need a clear and distinct alternative to what exists at the present he said. "We see as never before an emphasis on expediency and not on principle." He said the government used bribery in the form of grants to gain votes. "Eventually, if you tie enough dollars to someone, he loses his ability to criticize." He said people are losing the incentive and initiative to do things on their own and the path was being paved for a dictator to walk in. Socreds return Gruenwald DICK GRUENWALD MLA Dick Gruenwald wass chosen by Lethbridge West Socreds Monday to again contest the seat in the Alberta Legislature. Mr. Gruenwald, 57, was elected by acclamation at the constituency association's annual meeting. He has held the seat since the last election in 1971 when the Social Credit government was toppled by the Progressive Conservatives. He told the meeting that following party lines had always been secondary to him, that once elected he represented every member of the constituency. The Social Credit Party had provided him the opportunity to act according to his conscience, to represent people first, he said. He said he was not interested in "obtaining goodies" from a party or party leader. Mr. Gruenwald, an insurance agent, also said the government was prepared to listen to responsible opposition criticisms and proposals. He criticized elected representatives for a lack of courage. Many of them had such a crying need for acceptance, they would do anything to gain it. They were willing to be corrupted to gain power, he said. Party leader Werner Schmidt said Mr. Gruenwald had made some "pretty outstanding" contributions as an MLA. "He has represented you well and he has had some pretty good ideas about what should be Mr. Schmidt said. "Unless we change our attitude to the government dole... we are going to bring about our own he told the meeting. In addition to a burgeoning bureaucracy, "a pretty serious shift, taking away decision making from the legislature and giving it to the cabinet which met in secret, was taking place, he said. Mr. Schmidt also said small businesses would be doomed if the government insisted on continued encroachment of the private sector. The government can no longer take an objective, arm's length view, he said. A Social Credit government would be based on principle and the "restoration of liberty and dignity to every man" to exercise his individual rights. The party would shift the direction of government from one of opportunism ..and expediency to one of purpose, he said. The Socred leader also criticized Premier Peter Lougheed's confrontation tactics with Ontario and Ottawa over the energy crisis. There were other creditable and acceptable routes to protecting the province's rights. The day is past when people can ignore others, he said. Del Bonita farmer plans alcoholic rehab, centre By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CARDSTON Helmut Rudolph of Del Bonita Monday presented a proposal to the Cardston MD council to build a centre for the rehabilitation of alcoholics which councillors of the Cardston MD termed "a courageous plan." Mr. Rudolph has acres and a feedlot operation five miles northeast of Del Bonita. He plans to build a million split-level centre with square feet on each floor. He says he is hoping to receive approval for the project from the Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission and plans to JVo drastic changes seen in city police contract The city police association and the police commission have agreed on a two-year contract with "nothing new" in it. Although he said terms of the contract would not be made public, Harold Vosburgh, chairman of the police commission, said the new contract contained no drastic changes from the old one. "There were no violent he said. "We're happy, they're happy." Negotiations were amicable, he said. The contract was negotiated with conditions in Lethbridge as terms of reference, Mr. Vosburgh said. "We didn't go for everything they he said, and added that the police association's contract was much the same as contracts with other city employees. A condition in the previous contract that certain jobs within the force be posted was re emphasized in the new contract, Mr. Vosburgh said. This would give all qualified officers opportunity to apply for the jobs, he explained. When asked if seniority was 3717th StrwtSmMi ART DIETRICH DENTURECLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Slit VL'L S' S Phone 328-4095 one qualification, Mr. Vosburgh said that seniority would play a part, but ability and effectiveness would be more important aspects to examine. Mr. Vosburgh did not say what positions within the police force were affected by this clause. Irrigation union plans strike vote Outside workers employed by the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District will take a strike vote Friday in an attempt to enforce their demands for a first contract. Nap Milroy, spokesman for the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the group representing the 18 workers, said today the strike vote has been forced by the directors of the Lethbridge Northern. Both sides in the dispute rejected a conciliation officer's report late last month, and CUPE then applied for mediation services. LNIp refused to accept mediation and the strike vote was called, Mr. Milroy said. The union, certified last spring after an organizing drive, is asking for a base rate of a month, compared to the present rate of a month. "LNID is forcing us to take a strike vote we wanted mediation and they didn't so there is no other Mr. Milroy said. "EXTRA SPECIAL! DURALEX 20 PC.

The MD council gave the project its blessing, in principle, but some councillors said privately that Mr. Rudolph is getting into more problems than he now envisions just one of which would be garbage collection services. He operated three nursing homes and now wants to dp something for alcoholics. Capacity for the proposed institution would be 56 persons, "those who want to get rid of the habit of drinking they will stay for about four to six months there." But it would be for alcoholics only. "We don't want to mingle them together, alcohol and drugs." Mr. Rudolph said he and his 'wife got a licence, to operate a nursing home in I960 when at Edmonton, then moved to Vancouver Island and bought another nursing home outside Victoria. Then later they were running three institutions. In 1970 they bought the farm at Del Bonita. He said he has had experience with alcoholics because there were 15 or 20 alcoholics in their convalescent homes. "My desire is to help those who can't help he told the MD council. He said the centre would gradually switch the patients to a balanced diet so they could regain their health. There would be exercise programs, water treatment and sauna baths to get "the .poison" out of their system. One hundred acres would be devoted to organic gardening. There would be shops for woodworking and bookbinding. He said the alcohol and drug abuse commission wants one institution in the north and one in the south (of the "I don't want to have it in Lethbridge because the temptation (to go off the wagon) is that much said Mr. Rudolph. He said he plans to hire about 12 people, including three instructors, to run the home. Oldman River Regional Planning Commission associate planner Jay Simons asked, "What is the legislation do yon need a "I have to get a licence from the health and social development department. The building specifications (are about the same) of any nursing home. I hope to get grants from both said Mr. Rudolph. He claimed social assistance will pay so much per patient and said some patients in nursing homes were getting in such welfare payments monthly. The B.C. government pays he claimed.
