The packing firm is negotiating with department of .environment officials.

Social Credit incumbent Leighton Buckwell, 57, is expected to be nominated at a March 8 meeting. "We're being swept under the rug here in Southern Mrs.'Cairns, assis- tant secretary treasurer of the Willow Creek School Division, says. "We need more parks in this area.

Conservative George McMorris, 67, a Queenstown rancher and incumbent Socred Ray Speaker, 39, have been nominated. Southern Alberta Action Com- mittee for a Meat Packing Plant. Mr. Gregson said today that news reports on the subject of a new meat packing plant have been "quite badly dis- torted so it wouldn't be wise to give you any information because it would only appear in a distorted sense." Asked if the action com- mittee plans to hold public meetings, Mr. Gregson said, "Again, no comment." The aim and purpose of the organization is to bring to a successful conclusion the es- tablishment of a meat packing plant in Fort Macleod, he said. Mr. Gregson says the com- mittee is convinced that such an undertaking is a beneficial and progressive movement for Fort Macleod and Southern Alberta. Other officers are: Ted Thaell, vice chairman, and Gerry Goedhart, secretary- treasurer. Directors are: Andy Mackay, Mark Stringham, Hugh Craig, Bud Williams, Jack de Koning, Lee Wesley, Gordon Wesley and Charles Murray.

Tom Smart, president of Local 586 of the International Union of Electrical Workers, told The Herald a vote will be taken Tuesday to determine if workers will authorize strike ac- tion if necessary. Further talks will be held with the company after the vote. Wages are the main issue, he said. Young figure skater has unique souvenir of Games For Winter Games athletes, the Games torch symbolizes their quest for athletic excellence. But for 12-year-old Lethbridge figure skater Corri-Jo Petrunik, the Games torch is also something real. Something she can take home, cherish and call on in'years to come as a poignant reminder of the 1975 Canada Winter Games. Corri-Jo first hefted the three-foot aluminum torch as she lit the Games flame before spectators, athletes and a national televi- sion audience during opening ceremonies Feb. .11. The vivacious Corri-Jo, who der the care of Gerry secretary of the Canada Games 'Council, was handed to the young skater by Tom Bedecki, federal Health and Welfare representative on pairs event before a sellout crowd in the Sportsplex, received the torch for a se- cond time Wednesday in a quiet ceremony at City Hall. This time it was for keeps. The torch, which travelled miles across Canada un- Sons 'psyched' on winning Corri-Jo, surprised and elated, said afterward that she had no idea the Games torch would be hers. The torch, said Mr. Beaudry, travelled to .civic functions in 50 Canadian com- munities: "Every city we went to, we would light the big torch and drive it into the city to city hall or an arena. "Then one of the Games hostesses would light the small torch from the big one and present the torch to the city." AFL urges NDP support A contribution of was voted Wednesday to the Alberta Federation of Labor's committee on political educa- tion (COPE) by the Lethbridge and District Labor Council. The move followed receipt of a letter from the AFL urg- ing the federation's affiliates to contribute in view of the calling of the provincial elec- tion for March 26. An earlier letter, dated before the Valentine election call, asked that contributions be considered as an election was inevitable some time this year. Labor is still oppressed, despite what the Conservative government has done, it said. The new Labor Act put through by Labor Minister Bert Hohol repeated inade- quate past legislation, it added. It said the New Democratic Party is the only one doing things for working people, but the NDP cannot become the official opposition without support. Council secretary Al Packard said there is a com- plaint against one labor representative on the Unemployment Insurance Commission .board of referees. He presented it as a matter of information. Mr. Packard is a member of the board, which reviews dis- putes over unemployment in- surance claims. It includes business, labor, and neutral members. He said the labor council recommends labor represen- tatives, but the appointments are made by the federal government, and members must try to represent all citizens, not just their own group. The council received notice from the AFL of the annual in- dustrial health and safety conference in Edmonton next month. HUclunic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLD6.

NORTH LETHBRIDQE Phone By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer In the classroom it's called psychological motivation. In the hockey rink it's "getting psyched." Whatever the label, building and sustaining morale is a coach's obsession. How does a hockey team get Howie Yanosik, coach of Alberta's Winter Games team, offers this example. His players are tied 6-6 with a scrappy, aggressive New- foundland team after one overtime period: "Before the second over- time period I said, 'You fellows are representing three or four million Albertans. You are the best. So go out and show me.' "It took 10 adds Coach Yanosik, 42, with a smile. Once how does a team like the Native Sons stay "I treat the kids like I was treated during the year when I played says the defencemah who played 10 years with the Hershey, Penn., Bears. For goalies Gary Warner, 19, and Gary Clark, 15, this means preparing mentally for every game, because Yanosik doesn't assign his netminder until the team is ready to go out on the ice, For their team-mates, it means leaving families and friends for the isolation of the athletes' village. "It was mandatory that we live in the village with the other athletes. "We eat our meals together and set up meetings to discuss our game plan... The players are really keyed up. They're thinking hockey." Yanosik says Winter Games competition demands extra morale because it is so different from league play. Teams seldom play seven crucial games in seven days during regular league play. Teams in the league usually get to know each other's strengths and. weaknesses. But Winter Games schedules are so arranged that no one sees other teams in advance. "When you're playing an un- known club, you have to es- tablish a pattern and follow it." Winter Games teams can- not afford a single loss. "The only way to assure yourself first place is to win them all." The Native Sons players, he says, know each game, like tonight's 5 p.m. contest in Standoff against the powerful Quebec squad, is crucial.
