Olson toughest Alberta MP to beat Jed Baldwin, (lie Progressive Conservative House leader pre- dicts Medicine Hat MP Bud Ol- son will be the toughest Liberal in Alberta to beat in the next federal election. Mr. Baldwin, the 65-year-old MP for Peace River will dis- cuss the election as featured speaker at the Lethbridge Fed- eral Conservative nominal i n g convention at 8 p.m. Feb. 28 in the Civic Centre. "Olson is going to be the toughest guy to beat in Alberta because he has a personal fol- said a Tory spokes- man. Mr. Baldwin said in an inter- view from Ottawa that the Con- servatives have a "very good chance" to win all 19 seats in Alberta. Currently the Tories hold 15 seats and the Liberals have the remaining four. Lethbridge MP Deane Gund- lock, however, predicted Allen Sulatycky, the MP 'or Rocky Mountain will bo the hardest Liberal in this province to un- seat in the next federal elec- tion. Of Mr. Olson, the Lethbridge MP said: "He's not all that strong. A smart young farmer- type in Medicine Hat could gi him a hell of a run." Mr. Gundlock, who plans lo retire at the end of his term after holding the Lethbridge rid- ing for the Conservatives since said Mr. Sulatycky hat gainec' popularity with heatct criticism of government parks policy in the House of Com- mons. Mr. Gundlock, who plans lo attend the Feb. 28 nomination meeting here, was less confi- dent than Ms Peace River col- league about Conservative chances of sweeping all 19 seats in Alberta. Referring to Premier Lough- eed's pledge to deliver all If seats for the federal party, Mr Gundlock said "any politic! a r knows he can't always do 100 per cent of the things he'd like lo." The Herald sent staff photographer Phil Faulds to Waterton Lakes National Park this week to record the heavy snow- fall experienced there this winter. His pic- tures appear today on Page 31.

Played by Janet Duce, she is a dyna- mic, strong-willed person who frequently finds cause to dis- agree with the king's actions. Her attempts to adapt to the customs of the country and to the king himself create a series of hilarious and touching scenes.

Peigan band councillors were shown a 50 page study by Stanley Associates Engineering Ltd., a Calgary firm of consul- tants, that said a com- mercial culture recreation centre could be built on the re- serve with money raised from logging and ranching. Chief McDougal said the pro- posal, commissioned by the Pei- gan develop m e n t committee, would upset a current arrange- ment that permits individual In- dians to graze cattle free with band cattle. The plan would also be hin- dered by an Indian Act rule thai requires all money raised on the reserve to be cleared through Ottawa, he said. However, Chief McDougal said the band council would take the plan back to the re- serve for consideration. The band council may con- sider the plan at a meeting Feb. 29, said band manager Henry Potts. Mr. Potts, a former member of the Peigan band council, said the development plan could be a "valuable first step" toward improved living conditions for tht Indians who live on the acre reserve east of Pincher Creek. "That community centre in the plan is badly he said. At present recreation activ- ities are held in the gymnasium of an elementary school at the Brocket based reserve or in a community hall "badly in need of repairs." People from the reserve do most of their shopping at Pinch- er Creek or Fort Macleod, he said. The two month, study, paid for by the Indian affairs department, says "if the cattle and timber industries are de- veloped as recommended in the study, sufficient profit can be made to finance the construc- tion and operating costs of a commercial cultural recrea- tional building within about three years, or by the fall of 1974." A square foot build- ing would include: a store, laun- dromat, barber shop, pool room, band office, Indian affairs of- fice, public health office, indus- trial and handicrafts room, li- brary and lecture rooms. The total cost would also include construction of a 400 seat, ice arena. Skating surface would be nat- ural ice, however, since the cost of an artificial ice making plant was not included. The report, however, says the band must undertake a five-year Workman begins cleaning up debris Store battered by car Lethbridge city police have 'ound a car believed involved n a scries of collisions with he Kirk Tire (1964) Ltd. build- ng, 1621 3rd Ave. S. early this morning. A search for the car's driver continued at press time. Jerry Kirk, one of the com- pany's owners, said it appeared Ihe front of the building had hccm smashed into at least three times by a vehicle of some sort. Destruction to the building included three smashed plate glass windows, damage to the window frames and inside wall panelling around them, and at least one broken wall inside the building. The steel rack in front of Ihc building used to display a heavy equipment fire wns also badly bent, Mr. Kirk said. An estimate of the tolal dam- ages was not available. The damage was reported to city police by an unidentified city resident shortly after 2 a.m. today. EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR SHOE REPAIR HANZEL 317 7lh STREET SOUTH program to develop logging and ranching. The reserve has enough Um- ber to employ Indian loggers for three years, said the report. In 1974 contracts should be ar- ranged with Johnson Bros., a sawmill company, to keep the logging company working dur- ing 1975 and 1976, cutting tim- ber off the reserve. Chief McDougal said the re- port did not give enough con- sideration to access roads into reserve timber stands, and the logging operation will require more study. The report called for crea- tion of legally incorporated companies, responsible to the Peigan band council, to run both the logging company and the reserve ranch. The Peigan band ranch, the CY Ranch, began a major ex- pansion in 1966 and is current- ly one of the largest ranches in Alberta and the major source of reserve revenue. The Stanley Associates report said Uie ranch must set out a five-year growth program, with month-to-month objectives and an annual budget. "If you're going to go after Urf potential revenue and com- mit those funds, you are going to have to go about it in a busi- Local AW A group protests park plan The proposed de- velopment of a massive rec- reational area at Lake Louise should not be allowed to go ahead until the federal govern- ment adopts a two-park policy, a conservationist says. Dr. Luke Stebbins, president of the Lethbridge chapter of the Alberta Wilderness Asso- ciation, said the development flies in the face of present na- tional parks policy. He said there are at least 17 articles in the policy which are in direct conflict with the Lake Louise development. If the federal government is not going to follow its present policy, then they should de- velop a new he said. Dr. Stebbins said the two- park policy should see poten- tial recreation areas covered in one policy and set strict regulations for the preservation of wilderness areas in a sec- ond policy. Until the federal parks pol- icy is changed, the Lake Louise project should not go said Dr. Stebbins. 'Personally, I am not opposed to the development if j that is what the majority of j people he said. 'But it has to lead to a two- park policy." Dr. Stebbins, a biology pro- fessor at the University of Lethbridge, said his associa- tion will meet Tuesday at p.m. in the Canadian Western Natural Gas Company auditori- um to prepare personal briefs, which will be presented to the department of Indian affairs and northern development at a public hearing in Calgary next month. The public is invited to at- tend. The Imperial Oil develop- ment would see the establish- ment of boutiques, dis- cotheques, gormct restaurants, a health spa, specialty clothing shops, and other such ameni- ties at the Lake Louise site.
