Cranley may run for presidency Liberals m ay deal with leadership By JOAN BOWMAN Hera'tl Staff Writer A Calgary lawyer, George McKimm, said Friday he intends to call for conversion of the forthcoming Alberta Lib- eral Party's annual meeting into a leadership convention. Mr. McKimm said a two-thirds majority of delegates to the meeting, running Jan. 29-31 in Calgary, would be required to force the leadership issue. The three-day conference at present has scheduled election of a party president and at least two men, including Dr. W. J. Cranley, Lethbridge physician, are expected to contest the position. Dr. Cranley, president of the Lethbridge provincial Liberal association, said Friday he was "seriously considering" running. He said he would make a definite decision Monday.

Mr. Smith said the pageant, i to be held in the riverbottom area near the reconstructed Fort Whoop-Up, could be scheduled for August if the money, about $4,000, is available. A TCASA five-man planning committee is to include a study of the pageant in its over-all look at new programs for the association. Meanwhile the Calgary Tourist Association has indicated interest in the historial pageant concept for that city's 1975 centennial celebrations. Jack Herman, manager of tourism for CTA, said the large-scale drama was an "excellent idea", but the association was not at present prepared to go ahead with it be cause it would be "a massive job."

Mr. Herman said Calgary might start pageant plans, thus stealing the southern tourist association's thunder, if "our patience wanes." Six months given for break-ins Benny Van Weiren, 18, and David Emard, 17, both of Lethbridge, each received a six-month jail term when they pleaded guilty in magistrate's court to break-ins and theft. The youths broke into Fair-view Confectionery at 1524 9th Ave. S. July 12. This is the sev enth time Emard has been con victed of a break-in. Van Weiren also pleaded guil ty to a break-in and theft at Spotlite Service Station Ltd. July 9. He received an additional six-month jail term to run concurrent with his other sentence. The two were each serving a nine-month jail term for break and enter when they confessed to the other crimes. dency will be Edmonton lawyer Mike MacDonald, 37. Still not definite is if current president Peter Petrasuk, Calgary alderman, will run for reelection. However, a conference official has indicated he does not expect Mr. Petrasuk to contest another two-year term. Dr. Cranley, 56, said there was "no hope" of turning the conference into a leadership convention. Only one man, Bob Russell of St. Albert, had indicated he would run for the leadership, a position vacated last spring by Jack Lowery. Mr. Lowery resigned when alleged merger talks between he. and Premier Harry Strom Gold days ahead A cold artic air mass which i has penetrated into southern Alberta is expected to keep temperatures below the zero mark for the next couple of days. Skies will be cloudy today, with intermittent light snow-flurries. Winds will be from the north at about 15 m.p.h., gust-ing to 20 m.p.h. The daytime temperature should be near zero, dropping to about 20 below overnight. A wind chill index shows that a temperature of 20 below accompanied by a 20 m.p.h. wind, has the equivalent cooling power on exposed flesh as a temperature of 68 degrees below zero in calm condiitons. With the advance of the current system, a total of three-fifths of an inch of snow has fallen at Lethbridge in the past 24 hours. Friday's high and low temperatures were 41 above and zero respectively. Meanwhil.e northern and central Alberta have been be-seiged by a blizzard for the past three days, with winds Friday reported to reach gusts to 59 .n.p.h. Edmonton ROMP report highways and ditches are littered with cars and trucks. "At one time, 158 cars were halted on Highway 43 near Mayer-thorpe in central Alberta. We would only venture out on emergency calls." Drifts ranging from two to three feet deep were reported to cross highways in the stricken areas.

TAYLOR, M.D. Announces the opening of his office in Family Practice at 626 13th St. N. Phone 327-0411 - Res. 327-6763 were rejected by the Liberal party. Only one Liberal candidate has been named for the" next provincial election and many Liberals, including Dr. Cranley, insist the party should forego fielding a slate of candidates for the 75-seat house. Dr. Cranely said there still has been no interest shown in Lethbridge nominations. "If anyone wants a nomina- j tion meeting, I won't stand in his way. But I'm not going around on my knees asking people to run." He said the party needs reorganization and should concentrate on this at the convention rather than seeking a leader. Dr. Cranley indicated the major plus of winning the presidency would be his automatic appointment to the federal Liberal executive. "The real role of a provincial organization is to provide an organized base of support for the federal wing of the party." The Liberals won three seats in the 1967 provincial election, but lost them all through by-elections or party switching. It is known that a few potential candidates for the party have decided to run under the Social Credit banner. By LARRY BENNETT IETHBRIDGE is a great place to live. This city has' less unemployment and more growth potential than any other city in Alberta. We are lucky enough to have the province's third university. Lethbridge has all but one condition to guarantee future success. But everyone coming to Lethbridge has one thing in common- they all need a decent place to live. Many new residents are finding the housing problem unbearable. It would appear that rents range from excessive to intolerable. For example, it is possible to rent a two-bedroom, unfurnished suite for $180 per month, pay your light bill separately, pay for plug-in parking for the first car, pay an additional charge for a second oar plus the plug-in tee', and find the spot you are paying for filled either with snow or a non-paying guest. In a similar situation are occupants needing phones installed. Three times the phone company attempted to get the phone in and three times neither the landlord, nor the key to the utility room was available. Some leases contain sections that relieve landlord of all responsibilities resulting from loss or damages caused by the landlord, his agents, workmen or other tenants, or any loss occurring as a result of plumbing, electrical or mechanical defects in the building. In one situation a person was told by a real estate agent that a particular apartment had a standard 5,000 word lease which he, the agent, had never been able to finish reading. Many landlords discriminate against families with small children or pets, others will not allow smoking or drinking, some attempt to invade the privacy of their tenants and try to regulate their hours. It is almost impossible to rent an entire house. Most available houses have been sub-divided into basement or upstairs "suites". Tax total $310,000 Prepaid 1971 city taxes now total $310,000, compared with only $258,600 for the same period last year. Payments for the week ending Jan. 7 came to $231,600. In the first week of January last year the figure was $193,000. City taxes paid on or before Feb. 26 earn interest at the rate of six per cent up until June 30. ALCOHOLICS WARNED Alcoholics have been found to be more than four times as likely to die in highway crashes as non - alcoholics of similar age and sex. Jury trial scheduled for youths Bryan Atkinson of Lethbridge and Bruce Edmundson of Vancouver were committed to a jury trial after a preliminary hearing Friday in Lethbridge, The youths stand accused of possession of LSD for the purpose of trafficking. Edmundson faces the additional charge of possession of cannibus resin. Counsel for the defense requested and was granted, under recent federal legisla tion, a ban on publicity in the ! preliminary hearing. Atkinson is free on bail. Bail was set for Edmundson but could not be met. He remains in custody. No date has been set for the trial. No public authority will take the responsibility of handling a tenant's complaint against a landlord. The only recourse to a dissatisfied tenant is the additional expense of hiring an attorney to represent him. One logic" '.tentative to t) rental problem would be to buy a house. But, according to one bank official, many people are not able to make a large enough down-payment to make their monthly mortgage payments reasonable. If these people were to borrow enough money to make an adequate down-payment they could not afford the combined monthly payments of the mortgage and the loan. These are the trapped people, they cannot afford to buy a house; they really cannot afford to rent the available suites in Lethbridge. These are the people that many landlords are taking advantage of, and these are the people who will leave Lethbridge at the first opportunity. Coffee house January 12 A coffee house featuring the Point of Interest singing group will highlight spring semester orientation activities at the University of Lethbridge Jan. 12. At 9 a.m., about 100 new students will be greated by U of L President Dr. Sam Smith, and by Gordon Russell, coordinator of student affairs; Don Wick, chief librarian; and Robin Dann, Students' Society Council president. Tours of the campus, and a discussion - and - coffee session will be held following the greetings, with the coffee house opening in the evening at the Catacombs lounge in the students' facilities building.
