LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Ask about Phologrciy The lens that change! with Ihi light. Hurlburt gets PC nomination By JOE MA Slaff Writer Ken Hurlburt, the 43-year-old former mayor of Fort Macleod won tho nomination for the Lethbridge riding for the next federal election at a packed Progressive Conservative par- ty convention Monday night at the Civic Sports Centre. The only surprise was t h e margin of his victory votes against 301 for Ihe only otter contender, 40-year-old Lethbridge investment dealer John Gcgo. Even before the convention, the Gogo camp quietly conceded that Mr. Hurl- burt had the edge. "I make no promises of great or earth-shattering Mr. Hurlburt told the more (lian delegates and vis- itors. "It would be foolish for me to do so. But with your sivp- your vote tonight, comes a sincere promise. I'll fight hard. I'll work hard lo repre- sent each and every one of you." The convention drew the lar- gest crowd in the sports cen- tre's history'. The contention was jammed with Mr. Hurlburt's supporters from Fort Macleod. Deane Gundlock, the MP whose an- nounced plan to retire led to the nomination contest, also threw his support behind Mr. Hurlburt. The Hurlburt camp had com- plete control of the going of the convention. Yellow buttons of smiling faces with "Vote for Hurlburt" were pinned on most delegates and pretty girls were employed by the Hurlburt camp. The sheer number of yellow badges s e e n en al- most four of every five dele- Reminiscing with the Colonel Baking Bread "It's no wonder I wen! into the restaurant business.

The lluriburl camp spent much more campaign funds han the Gogo group. G. W. (Jed) Baldwin, the PC louse leader, came from Ot- to address the convention. Mr. Baldwin attacked the cabinet of Prime Minister ierre Trudeau for increased military expenditure, wasting .axpayers' money and mocking .he judicial process. Anolher speaker was Fred Gladstone, son of the late Se- lator James Gladstone of Cardslon, the first Indian sena- tor, who died last year. Mr. Gogo accepted his defeat graciously. He congratulated Mr. Hurlburt and told the dele- gates: "We came as two camps. Let us leave as one imp." Party officials said both the turnout for the convenlion and the margin of Mr. Hurlburt's victory made records in the political his'iory of southern Al- berta. Convention notes Granum's town council meet- ing was held Monday afternoon instead of evening, as regu- larly scheduled, so the council- lors could travel to Lett- bridge's Civic Sports Centre to help cinch the Conservative nomination for their neighbor Ken Hurlburt. Fort Macleod was also al- most empty Monday night, sev- eral residents said at the con- vention. Start of the meeting was de- layed nearly 90 minutes be- cause of Hie throng of people lined up to get their voting cre- dentials and ballots. 'file meeting was "back- wards" in the hall, with the podium at the east end and the stage, jammed with voters, at tile rear. At least people were in the building, it is cal- culated, probably the largest crowd it has ever held. A few dozen visitors from other political parties were into one comer of the bleachers, to make room for voters. In the 1968 election Deane Gundlock got votes out of the cast in the Leth- bridge constituency. G. W. (Jed) "Baldwin, the Conservative House leader who flew from Ottawa for the con- vention, was seen folding a pa- per aeroplane and letting go of it down the aisles. The longest warmest applause went to Fred (Jiad- slono, son of the late James Gladstone of Cardston, the first Iiifiian senator in Canada. The only time applause sub- sided at the convention was when a woman official of the party announced hat-passing to collect money to finance the next federal election. About S300 was collected less than a quarter per delegate. Ken lluriburl, in an uncon- ventional convention speech, introduced his wife as "busi- ness partner personal sec- retary frankly, my best supporter."

Because this province's tour- ist industry is growing rapidly and the future recreational de- mands "have been reliably predicted to be far in excess of what we currently posses" the government must take imme- diate action, a resolution pass- ed by the convention states. The Peace River tourist zone resolution adopted by the dele- gates continued: Established parks and areas must be signi- ficantly improved to provide good and attractive visitor fa- cilities and ecological protec- tions. The tourist industry "has the definite potential fo becoming Alberta's greatest revenue pro- ducer, as well as source of meaningful job opportunities, TIAA executive committee re- solution passed by delegates said. It resolved that a new full portfolio lie created in this province instead of maintaining the present "minister without portfolio in charge of tourism" situation. By establishing a full provin- cial department, the govern- ment would acknowledge the economic importance of the in- dustry. Another Peace River resolu- tion adopted by the delegates called for the TJAA to prepare a brief for the provincial gov- ernment which will outline the highway and road priorities throughout the province needed to meet increasing traffic. "We do not have sufficient highway facilities nor the stan- dards necessary on all estab- [islied roadways to meet the pre- sent and future needs of the visistor the resolu- tion staled. The provincial body resolved that the Travel Industry Asso- iation of Canada be approach- ed to encourage the federal government to maintain a cap- ital grant program for tourist fncililics. Alhcrta inaugurnicd such a program last year. A Calgary Tourist and Con- vention Associalion resolution passed Monday said that the province's history is a public resource and its artifacts must he legislalively protected. It urged a povcrnmcnl-spon- sored program to rediscover and protect historic areas from destruction while also request- Ing lhat the private sector he involved in the program. A Peace Kiver tourist zone resolution also urged an in- crease in Alberta History con- tents in school textbooks. British greatest Columbia, competitor Alberta's for the tourist, has set aside certain designated areas with special licensing service facilities to accommodate tourists "Gas- town" in Vancouver an Ed- monton resolution passed at the convention stated. The Edmonton Convemion Bureau urged the provincial government "to examine the possibility of declaring certain specific areas within the prov- ince as 'visitor attractions' in order that special legislation can be enacted'' to provide less-restrictive licensing regu. lations for those areas.

A special census will be con- ducted before the end of April lo determine an accurate popu- lation figure for the city. City council Monday ap- piovcd a request by the city manager to hire 25 qualified students as enumerators at a cost of between and In a letter to council, City Manager Tom Nutting said the increase shown by the January census, of 952 people over last year is "impossible to accept." For example, city meter readers did a check of one 'our-block area in the city and 'ound there had been omis- sions, Mr. Nutting said. He listed four reasons why .he census appears inaccurate: 125 enumerators with little training were used in the cen- sus; some homeowners failed to register all occupants of the house because some lived in un- authorized suites; some enumerators did not register any students; the character of some areas of the city made enu- meration difficult for female census-lakers. Mr. Nutting said he estimates the population increase over the last year should be to An accurate growth rate anc population figure is necessar; to plan future developments, he said. Financing of one future de velopment had to be postponed Monday because not enough al dcrmen were at the meeting to pass a money bylaw.

Satellite Experimental The- atre, represented by Bruce Al- en, Tom Gordon, Beverly Mc- Kean, Brian Murray ond Reid Seibert, also requested some fi- nancial support from Ihe cily. Thai request was referred to the community sen-ices advi- sory committee for a report. The group asked the city to pay the taxes and utililies on the building from May 15 to Sept. l.i when thr experimen- tal theatre would be in opera- tion.
