Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI HERALD Wednudoy, Januoty 19, 1972 Hopes far election upset B.C. Tory leader knows Lougheed style VANCOUVER (CP) The new leader of Ihe Brilish Col- umbia Progressive Conservative party hopes he can do for B.C. Tories what Peter Lougheed has done for the party in Alberta- defeat a Social Credit govern- ment. Dcrril Thomas Warren, a 32- y e a r -o I d Vancouver lawyer, moved here from Calgary years ago and brought with him some first-hand knowledge of Uie Lougheed style and cha- risma. He articled with Mr. Lougli- eed's Jaw firm and "knocked or doors" for the Alberta premier when he first won election to the Alberta legislature in 1967. Mr. Lougheed became premier this year after winning Alber- ta's Aug. 30 provincial election. Mr. Warren appears to have brought an extremely youthful image to the B.C. Conservative party. He looks younger than his 32 years, and at the conven- tion where he was elected in late November he was sur- rounded by modishly-dressed young men and women who blazed about with minded determination that clearly paid off. NOT 'ESTABLISHMENT' Interviewed after defeating party leader John de Wolf, he rejected suggestions by some of his opponents that he was the candidate of the party's "estab- lishment" or "machine." "I am not a machine candi- date, whatever that Mr. Wan-en said. "I don't think one should interpret loo literally the passions and expressions in the voting. 776 convictions in year at Tuber TABER (HNS) Nearly ev- ery phase of Taber court work during 1971 showed a reduction from Uie previous year but mo- tor vehicle accidents investiga- tion increased in all categories. Magistrate's court convic- tions for last year totalled 776 as compared with 817 for 1970. Criminal Code eases num- bered 173 Highway Traf- fic Act, 342 and Liquor Control Act 261 Last year, from June through December, 260 per- sons taken into custody in an intoxicated condition were re- leased when sober without charge the year previous the number was 177. The 154 motor vehicle acci- dents investigated last year comprised 70 major and 84 mi- nor mishaps, accounting for 20 personal injuries and property damage of The num- bers for 1970 were 143 acci- dents (64 major and 79 minor) for 18 personal injuries and property loss estimated at 568. "The splil is healed if the split was ever there. You saw John (de Wolf) go up gallantly In the front and move that the election be made unanimous. II was a wonderful expression of unity by John, iilio came through HG the kind of man I knew he was." Mr. Warren, a six-foot-five, 180-pound native of Regina, speaks with supreme confidence of his chances of moving the To- ries from fourth place will] no seals in the legislature to first place and government. "II we roll up our sleeves we will accomplish he said in pledging to build the party into a major political force with competent and "con- temporary" people. He explained why he wants to defeat Premier W. A. C. Ben- nett's Social Credit govern- ment: "It is an aging, aged govern- ment. The man who is the head is 71 years old. If you look at his cabinet you will find they range from 76 downwards. They have lost interest in the prov- ince. They have been in power for nearly 20 years, and UK cabinet Is mostly the same old group. It represents an impot- ence that comes with age." Married with three children, the new leader earned a mas- ter's degree in law at Harvard after earlier training at the Uni- versity of Saskatchewan, Uni- versity of British Columbia and Dalhousie University.
