"A city as well off economically as Lethbridge should rate high in Liberal party said Blair Williams, federal party campaign chairman for Alberta. "The Liberals are an urban party that's booming in Prairie cities like Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and said Mr. Williams. If an election called today, he told the annual meeting of the Lelhbridge Federal Literal Association, the party would win six seats in Alberta. The party would hold its current four seats and gain one each in Edmonton and Calgary, Its popi be gi The Conservatives hold the other 15 of the 19 Alberta seats in the House of Commons. By the time an election is called likely in June he said the Liberals in Alberta will Ire in a stronger position, able to win more than six seats. Mr. Williams, 32, former assistant to the federal minister ol agriculture, said the single most important element in strengthening the party's pop-u arity will be "communications." Because people in Alberta see Ottawa mainly through the eyes of Conservative MPs, the Optimistii for sale Kent Jespersen, special assistant to the federal minister of agriculture, said Prairie g-ain farmers should look toward future grain sales with "a tremendous amount of optimism." Mr. Jespersen, speaking to the Lethbridge Federal Liberal Association, said the federal government has put a number cf measures in effect that will help the farmer: a protein grading syslem, like that used by other countries; a two price system improved transportation for farm 'owing Liberals have a hard time getting their message across, ho said. Mr. Williams, bom in Lethbridge and a high school student at Tabcr, said representation of the Lethbridge riding in Ottawa by Conservative IIP Deane Gundlock "has been depressing to say the least." At the 19GI! general election, he said, the Liberal candidate, John Boras, lost by about voles, "not that big a margin." Wilh the announced retirement of Mr. Gundlock, IIP since 1933, "it's going to be a new Mr. Williams. 3 future of grain among Western Liberals. The reasons for this pessimism, lie said, are: few Literal MPs in the west; issues in Ottawa are filtered to people here through tho eyes of Opposition Conservative MPs and the government has had to take some unpopular action recently such as the defeated grains stabilization act and changes to the lax system. he said Westerners should remember that the Canadian economy is expanding six per cent (Gross National Product) ad the cash position of farm products is in good shape. The Canadian economy Is expanding faster than the economy of any other western nation, he said. contract not let A contract has not yet been awarded for construction of a two million gallon reservoir in West Le'bbridge. Tenders closed this week and six contractors submitted bids willi the lowest bid, from Foundation Company of Canada Ltd. of Calgary, at However, Foundation Company has not teen awarded the contract.

Both men were asked how much their campaigns will cost up to the nomination meeting which begins at Monday evening at the Gvic Sports Centre.

Mr. Gogo, 40, an investment dealer, said he will have spent about S5CO. all of it out of his own pocket. Mr. Hurlburt said all the money for his campaign will likely be raised through donations.

Short By RUDY HAUGESEDER Staff Writer New work altitudes must be adopted by labor before the shorter work week is adopted, warned a labor leader in Lethbridge Friday. Reg Basken, Intern a tional representative of the 0 i Chemical and Atomic Workers in Edmonton, said the we work day, shorter work week concept could result in higher national unemployment. The current noise and pollution t h r e sholds regulating worker safety are based on an eight-hour day and not enough research has been done to see what the "thresholds" are for a 10 or 12-hour day. Mr. Basken said It will be difficult to get management has d make changes in these areas. The shorter work week would result in higher national unemployment unless workers were educated towards the benefits of increased recreation tune. In industries where the shorter work week has been impli-mented, researchers have found tliat about 17 per cent of the men with extra time have taken on "moonlighting" jobs. If the shorter work week becomes more universally accepted, Mr. Basken predicted up to 23 per cent of the workers would find second jobs, thereby depriving the unemployed. The shorter work week does not result in shorter work hours, he added. The objective of organized labor is to ret uce horn's to permit more workers to become employed. Part of (he education necessary before implementing the short work week, is to teac i people about employment distribution. Mr. Rasken said the numbers entering the work force annually si pcrcedcs 1 he lumbers of new JOIN available. Employers arc willing to introduce the s wrter work at the cost of many work benefits, ho warned. So, while employees think they are gaining something, they ara actually losing benefits. He was speaking to about 40 labor leaders from throughout the southern portion of the province, during the first day of a two day Alberta Federation of Labor conference here. Jack Hampson, representative of Hie Canadian Food and Allied Workers in Calgary, defended the short work week concept. However, he added, Uie shorter work week does not reduce the actual number of hours worked nor are the overall results of a longer work day The shorter week, providing more recreation time, could result in people accepting retirement at an earlier age, he said. If people retired earlier more jobs would be available to these seeking work. Through the shorter work week, tlie shorfer hours will follow suit, which in turn will provide more jobs, Mr. Hampson to meet tl Education today Is still oriented toward problem solving about the past, rather than preparing for and determining the future, Dr. Warren Ziegler of the Syracuse University Research Centre of New York City said Friday. Delivering the keynote address, Inventive Educat i o n: Teaching and Learning the Future, to the Southwestern Alberta Teachers' Association convention, Dr. Ziegler said with the diminishing authority of the church and the loosening of family ties, educational institutions are taking over a greater burden of socialization. But the educational institutions are not ready for the increased share of burden, he pointed out. In order to cope with the need of the time, teac ers themselves should ke ter Into the process of socialization. Dr. Ziegler said inventive education should pay attention to the development of psychological ability to deal with the uncertainties of today's world, insight into the future, new meanings about life, moral and ecological courage, self governance, ability to choose, o tolerate and cele b r a t e new ideas with open minds, the will and the spirit to succeed, and tile sense about truth and beauty.
