School system and economy aid trucking By RIC SWFHART Staff Writer Canada's education system and a viable economy are wha makes tte nation's warehous ing and long distance trucking industry go. Chuck Martin, general man sger find executive vice-presi dent of United Van Lines Ltd. said 70 per cent of the Cana dian moving industry's busi ness is done in a four-month pe- riod. He said in an interview tha Hie majority of the business is done when school is coming out and when school is going in. He said if.wilh the semester system, -the school year was al tared so that the students at- tended during the summer months it would be a boon to UK trucking industry. This would make three peak periods for the trucking indus- try instead of two, said Mr. Martin. He predicted if this is done the costs of trucking fur- niture and families would go down. He said Alberta is a very good transportation province. It has an active economy with the oil and gas industry, and military and provincial and federal government agen- cies which add to the trans- portation industry. United Van Lines, Canada's second-largest trucking firm, handled 85 million pounds of furniture 'ast year for a fee based on mileage charges of million.

He said 52 per cent of any move is labor the physical carrying of furniture. A major reason for the high cost is the seasonal nature cf the work also, be said. Much of the year the high-cost equip- ment can't be used. Equipment needed for mov- ing furniture is expensive, with worth in the back of each truck. United is a unique firm, he said. The parent company doesn't own one vehicle. All trucks are owned by agents or private individuals who are share-holders in the company. Mr. Martin said the trucking industry in Canada is good. He said it has benefits that other forms of transportation don't have. The main advantage to usin trucks Is that customers gel door-to-door service.

Conservative meet Tax relief for south suggested By GKEG McINTYRE Slalf Writer EDMONTON Tax relief to southern Alberta industries such as meat and vegetable processing plants was proposed by group discmaions at the Al- berta Progressive Conservative annual convention here during the weekend. Premier Peter Loughecd told the conference that this i.ype of "grass roots" thinking will be incorporated into policy illscus- sions during upcoming sessions of the legislature. He said specific projects' can- not be revealed until the gov- ernment's speech from the throne March 2. A group arguing the topic Urbanization and Rural Devel- opment, came to a consensus that secondary industry is need- ed to support the agricultural base of most small Alberta communities. The group felt resources should be used to create jobs locally, rather than be shipped away for manufacture. Participants were the delegates to the Tory Conven- tion, many of them MLAs, fed- eral MPs, university and other academes and members of the government's civil service. The rural development dis- cussion stressed that more ideas and money are needed to create labor-intensive local in- dustry, regardless of where the money comes from. Another group, discussing the topic Alberta Ownership and Management of Her Own Eco- Alberta wants new rail routes to west EDMONTON (Staff) Al- berta Industry Minister Fred Peacock has suggested raw materials from this province be transported via CP Rail to Coutts or Kingsgate then over the Burlington Northern Rail- tray in the United States to the port of Vancouver. Lougheed here Feb. 23 Premier Peter- Lougheed -vill be in Letttbridge Feb. 23 to in- vestigate why the Alberta Pro- gressive Conservative party failed to deliver a single Tory seat south of Calgary in Ihe August, 1971 win. Asked after the party's an- nual convention at Edmonton during the weekend what went wrong, the Premier said: "I don't know what to say about that. We've got some or- ganizational work to do." Jokingly, he added: "It was ;03 degrees above when we went through the south cam- paigning. Maybe people just weren't in the mood to discuss politics." The party's new president, Bob Sewell said in an inter- view earlier that possibly the Tories were better organized in the north. "The desire for a change of jovernment' seemed stronger in the metropolitan areas and particularily in he added. Mr. Sewell, who defeated Roy Weston for the provincial >resident post at a vote during he three-day convention, said he desire (or a change in gov- ernment was strongest in Ed- monton, because at' (lie seat of iovernment the general public s in dose day-to-day contact with government people. The Conservatives won 49 eats in August, Social Credit 25 seats and the New Demo- ratic Party, one. Mr. Peacock suggested the alternate rail route through Lethbridge to avoid tie-ups caused by bad weather in the Eraser Canyon area of B.C. The industry minister also suggested use of the CNR line to Prince George, then down the Pacific Great Eastern rail- line to Vancouver. In a prepared statement, Mr. Peacock said the two alternate routes were suggested in a re- quest to Federal Transport Minister Don Jamieson to use his office to get Alberta raw materials mov'ngfwest. Stockpiles of Alberta sulphur, coal and grain are insufficient to load waiting ships at Van- couver because of rail delivery interruptions due to snow slides in the Fraser Canyon, he said. "Grain shipments to the west coast are several weeks behind. At the moment there are only six million bushels of grain in terminals that have a capacity for 18 he said. "Sulphur stockpiles at Van- couver are down to tons. Two ships are currently in port waiting to be loaded, one with a ton capacity." Only tons of Alberta coal are at the Kaiser Re- sources terminal at Vancouver, he said, while a ship with a cap- pacity of tons is waiting to be loaded. "To fill the holds of this ship alone, 11 unit-trains carrying Alberta coal are needed imme- diately." CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mishonlc HACK DENTAL IAE- Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 nomy, felt (hat the government should discriminate between local and foreign-owned indus- try. The provincial government should provide Albertans with tax incentives to invest in their own province, members o[ this group said. Incentives could be a tax re- bate on investment in Alberta.- based firms or a rebate on capital gains made on Alberta companies. Hog, cattle or vegetable pro- cessing or packaging were sug- gested as the type of industries that could be encouraged by the government. In a group discussion of The Environment in an Economy ot Industrial Development, dele- gates felt that "cost of dam- ages to the environment should be paid by the polluter." Members of the discussion group argued, without coming to any conclusion, about wheth- er the farmer's rural way of life should be protected by gov- ernment regulations. 'Candidate school' for Tories? EDMONTON (Staff) The national Progressive Conserva- tive Party may use the "candi- date school" in the next fed- eral election, a tactic that was successful for the Alberta Tor- ies in their August, 1971 win. National PC president Don Matthews said he will take the idea, suggested by provincial party president Roy Watson, back for discussion in Ottawa. The candidate school was weekend training session teld at Banff before the Alberta election in August. Under the direction of experienced cam- paign organizers, candidates studied the various aspects of getting their message across to the electorate. Mr. Matthews said if the fed- eral Tory party adopted a plan to use the candidate school, U would be implemented in every riding across the country. ORGANS NEW and USED MUSICLAND WE TAKE GRAIN!
