Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, January 23, 1971 Things look rosy for Tories^ CALGARY (CP) - The Progressive Conservative Party, bubbling with confidence in Alberta, was told Friday things are also looking good in other provinces. Reporting to the provincial party's annual meeting, national director Latm S. O'Brian of Ottawa said the Conservatives can realistically expect to'form governments in six of the 10 provinces by the end of 1971, Mr. O'Brian paid tribute to provincial leader Peter Long-need of Calgary, noting that In six years Alberta conservatives had built one of the strongest political organizations in the country. The rise of the provincial party, which in 1965 was without a leader or a seat in the legislature, was "an Inspiration Alberta won't sell insurance CALGARY (CP) - Premier Harry Strom assured insurance agents Friday that compulsory automobile insurance legislation is no indication the provincial government wants to get into the insurance business. Legislation making minimum insurance requirements compulsory on all vehicles will be introduced at the next sitting of the legislature, he told the insurance agents association of Alberta. "We'll let private carriers write the insurance." A committee to review insurance rates and services on-a regular basis would be established and insurance representatives would likely be included. With compulsory insurance, there will be no need for the green - card system for people who do not carry insurance but who pay $20 into the Unsatisfied Judgement Fund, the premier said. The fund would be retained for special cases. Mr. Strom said the minimum liability insurance will likely be $35,000 but the insurance association has recommended $50,000. "The compulsory program will not be 100 per cent foolproof, but we hope to come up with as good a system as possible. "With the liberalization of liquor laws, for example, we must give considerable attention to the driver on the road." WEIGHT WATCHERS Meets: Tuesdays 1:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays 7:30 p.m. EL RANCHO MOTOR HOTEL MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE Trust only the original Weight Watchers (TM) to watch your weight. Hundreds of thousands have done it successfully. You can, tool REGISTRATION $5.00 MEETING $2.00 MEN  WOMEN  TEENAGERS For Further Information Call 328-5832 to Conservatives right across Canada." The Alberta party has 10 of the 65 seats In the legislature. Mr. O'Brian said In terms of political technology, the national party has never been better prepared to fight an election and stands ready to provide whatever aid or assistance it can to help the Alberta wing. National president Nathan Nurgitz of Winnipeg opened the meeting by telling delegates a new political order, which is breaking down old geographical boundaries, is arising in Canada. Mr. Nurqitz said the iirst step was taken by the federal government which is using its taxing power to frustrate and starve provincial governments . . . "This is a new tactic in Canadian politics." The Conservatives expect a provincial general election in the spring and the annual meeting is obviously geared to launch the party's campaign. Breakthrough '71 is the theme, and policy workshops are the main item on the agenda. The party has already nominated 56 candidates, and provincial president Roy Watson said their campaign organizations are ready to roll. Ed Wensel, a young PC organizer, said the party should use young people to full advantage, "not just to hang up posters." 10,000women in PC party CALGARY (CP) - The Progressive Conservative Party in Alberta has about 10,000 women members and should take steps to utilize their talents, Lillian Knapp, president of the Women's association said Friday. Mrs. Knapp, who travelled 7,000 miles and attended 22 meetings last year, said Conservative women have an important political voice and tremendous influence, particularly on the political thinking of their teen-age children. Ed Wensel, head of the Young Progressive Conservative movement, said Alberta is already rather unique in that the party accepts the ideas of young people - "which is not the case in many provinces." Don McKenzie, president of the Conservative Students Federation at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, told the party's annual meeting that university students are looking for a vehicle for change. Provincial president Roy Watson told delegates the party is approaching the target of 25,000 members set two years ago. Soviets sign fishing pact MOSCOW (CP) - Canada and the Soviet Union settled differences over Pacific fishing rights by signing their first fisheries agreement here Friday. The pact, whose full title is the Agreement on Co-operation in Fisheries off the Coast of Canada in the Northeast Pacific Ocean, was signed by Deputy Fisheries Minister Dr. A. W. H. Needier of Canada and Vladimir Kamentsev, first deputy of Soviet fisheries. It grants Russian trawlers the right to fish in Canadian territorial waters around the Queen Charlotte Islands off the coast of British Columbia, but excludes them from a 400-square- R0THMANS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS Pinning a coauwnlty Mint?

BEER TORONTO (CP) - A survey of travel agents and consular of fidals indicates' the number of immigrants planning to return for good to their homelands appears to be on the rise, and lack of suitable employment is the reason cited by most. Although accurate figures are not available because Canada does' not require official notification from persons leaving the country, the survey in Toronto indicates a mounting t x o d u s, particularly among recent immigrants from The Netherlands, Italy and Germany. There was also an accom- Knying drop in the number of migrants entering Canada from those countries last year. Figures compiled by the department of manpower and immigration show the number of Italians who immigrated to Canada during the first nine months of 1970 was only 6,692 compared with 8,112 in the same period a year earner. The same nine-month flow of Germans was 3,444 compared with 4,565 and the number of Dutch immigrants' in the same period was 1,622 compared with 2,096 in 1969. GRANT MORE VISAS Baron Burkard von M ii 11 e n hedm - Rechberg, West Germany's consul - general in Toronto, said the number of working visas granted by the consulate has more than doubled in the last two years. "The number of people applying is definitely increasing, and three-fifths of tie applicants are Canadian citizens of German origin." Involve people in fairs Hill advises conference DlAPfllON m CAN TAI7I t m� TUHOVMOP umiNMS SASKATOON (CP) - Communities should become so involved in their exhibitions that people feel the summer fairs are actually their own, the annual convention of the Western Canada Association of Exhibitions was told Friday. Cleave Hill, past - president of the Lethbridge and District Exhibition, said conununities, by being involved, should feel about their fairs the way a businessman does about his own operation. Mr. Hill, together with Stan Haughey, president of Manl-sphere in Winnipeg and James Fatterly, chairman of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede, were speaking on a panel dealing with ways of involving people in exhibition programs. Mr. Fatterly said that in recruiting volunteer workers for committees, exhibitions should look for doers, organizers and thinkers. Mr. Haughey added exhibitions should act in a more businesslike manner and start thinking in terms of success. GENERAL in*______ FARM SUPPLIES! fes* PRESENTS TMF �__� -^�
