Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Jtnuiry 22, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-- 21 Liberals had election surplus OTTAWA (CP) The Liberal party emerged from last July's federal election with a million surplus while the Progressive Conser- vatives ran up a deficit of about an authority on campaign financing reported Tuesday. Prof. Khayyam Paltiel of Carleton University, in a supplement to his published work on election funds, says the winning Liberals raised about million and spent about million. The resulting surplus swelled an existing party nest 'egg of Conservatives raised about million and spent about million in 1974, said Mr. Paltiel, who served as research director for the 1964 study of election spending. The PCs had an existing deficit of about thousand. Preliminary figures suggest the New Democratic Party raised about thousand, an increase of about 20 per cent on 1972, and spend about thousand. Social Credit collected about thousand, but no total on spending was contained in the report. The figures were obtained from the national head- Politicians used lots of air time despite new law OTTAWA (CP) Politicians bought a total of radio and television advertisements during the eight-week 1974 election cam- paign and they might buy even more in the next campaign, despite limitations imposed by a new election law. bought in the 1974 campaign. In addition, Prof. Paltiel said the new act does not regulate the amount of time which can be purchased by in- dividual candidates and does not regulate the timing of spot announcements. The Liberals and Con- servatives were the big spen- ders, at million and million respectively.

Mo comparable total has been calculated for new- quarters of the parties and do not include money spent by in- dividual candidates across the .country. John Laschinger, national director of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, said in an interview that the party's financial posi- tion is improving and the out- standing deficit now is less than Prof! Paltiel estimates that all parties and candidates in the July 8 election spent a total of about million, compared with an estimated million in the 1972 cam- paign. In addition, million was spent by the chief electoral officer on the organization of the election total of million for the election. Prof.' Paltiel bases his es- timates on spending by the party central offices and on official spending declarations filed by candidates in accor- dance with the Election Act. Although the declarations "often seriously un- derestimate" actual spending and about 25 per cent of can- didates do not file returns, they do give an idea of how much candidates spend, Prof. Paltiel said. Based on declarations of 914 candidates, a total of about million was spent by individuals in the July elec- tion, 13.4 per cent more than the million reported by 840 candidates in the 1972 campaign, the study says. Liberal candidates increas- ed their individual spending by almost seven per cent to a total of million. The average declared by each reporting Liberal candidate was the highest among all parties. Progressive Conservative candidates spent more than million, almost 20 per cent more than in 1972 and an average of per can- didate. NDP candidates increased spending by one- third to more than million and an average of per candidate. Spending by each of 86 reporting Social Credit can- didates averaged a scant 61Q for a total of This represents a decrease of almost 40 per cent from the 1972 totals, due in part to the fact that fewer Social Credit candidates filed 'declarations in 1974, he said.

OTTAWA (CP) Revenue Minister Ron Basford is "back in the swing of his parliamentary duties" after a long stay in hospital late last year, an aide said Tuesday. The official said Mr. Basford remains on medica- tion and is receiving physiotherapy for pain in his hands that plagued him late last fall. Mr. Basford entered hospital .in Ottawa in the first week of November for tests and remained until Christ- mas, although he spent weekends at home. After Christmas, he went to Toronto for confirmation of the diagnosis of his ailment at Wellesley Hospital. He went south for a vaca- tion this month but returned to his parliamentary offices Monday. spapers. Prof. Khayyam Paltiel of Carleton University, an authority on campaign finan- cing, says the new Election Expenses Act in attempting to limit political advertising allows even more political ads in a shorter period of time. Under the new act, each radio and broadcasting station is required to make available for sale 6V4 hours of prime time to political parties in the last 29 days of an election campaign. The act also provides that the parties are to be reim- bursed by the government for half of their expenditures on broadcast advertising. This means the country's 397 broadcasting outlets could sell more than minutes of prime time to political par- ties in the next election, 50 per cent more than what was WASHINGTON (AP) A three-year study dispels fear that the current fleet of super- sonic transports will damage the earth's protective blanket of ozone, the United States transportation department said Tuesday. Plans for a U.S. fleet of su- personic transports (SSTs) were scrapped in 1971 during debate about possible health and environmental damage. The ozone blanket protects the earth from radiation that might cause skin cancer and from excessive heat from the sun. John Barnum, deputy trans- portation secretary, said the Ford administration is not in- terested at this time in reviv- ing plans for a U.S. SST fleet. The study was ordered by Congress in 1970. The study says the 16 Anglo- French Concordes and 14 Soviet TU-114S now flying or scheduled for service will cause atmospheric changes so minimal they will be un- detected. But the study concludes that future expansion of stratos- pheric jet fleets should be carefully monitored. Dr. Allan Grobecker, who directed the study, told a news conference it would require 125 Concordes flying hours daily to cause a detectable change in the ozone belt. He said current instruments cannot measure ozone changes smaller than .5 per cent, which he likened to "spending an extra 45 minutes at the beach" in terms of skin damage. His study noted, however, that man-made changes in radiation or temperature control "will lead to serious consequences, if either super- sonic or subsonic fleets are expanded to large numbers without imposing a strict limitation on engine emissions."
