Walter Kerber Photo Manpower booth attracts few people looking for jobs Not many people go out to the Whoop Up Days fair grounds to look for a job. This fact has been brought home to the counsellors at the Canada Manpower Centre booth in the Youth-a-rama building this week. Not that there haven't been people stop at the booth. Some drop in to ask directions, oth- ers want information about the fair and a goodly number have stopped to pick up some of the brochures the CMC staff have on display. But serious inquiries are few and far between. Linda Fran- cis, one of the counsellors tak- ing turns manning the booth, said she wasn't too concerned. The basic purpose of the dis- play is to make the public aware that CMC sen-ices are available to those who need them, she said, adding that she Pharmacy Facts from 0. C.

Eddie Gnandt Provincial candidates for the two Lethbridge ridings stepped smartly on the election trail Thursday only a few hours af- ter Premier Harry Strom an- nounced voters would go to the polls Aug. 30. Although the five two So- cial Credit, two New Democra- tic Party and one Progressive Conservative were bustling to set their practical operations in order, thay had their politi- cal statements well in hand. Social Credit candidates in Lelhbridge will stress the pro- vincial government's "record of good government" in the up- coming election, the Progres- sive Conservatives will attempt to demonstrate that they are a viable alternative to the gov- ernment, and the New Demo- cratic Party will fight the elec- tion on specific economic is- sues. John Anderson, Social Credit candidate for Lethbridge East, said today he sees "no really big issues" in the campaign and said he will stress Social Credit's 36 years of "honest, good government." This was echoed by Dick Gnienwald, Lethbridge West Social Credit candidate, who could forsee "no major issues in Lethbridge." Lethbridge East Conservative candidate Richard Barton said his parts' will rarl a "positive" campaign. Instead of attacking the Social Credit government, the Conservatives will attempt to show they offer an accept- able alternative to the govern- ment, by running a slate of candidates with administrative efficiency. Mr. Barton said government taxation policies, and increased emphasis on the value of MLA's will be two issues he will concentrate on. The state of the economy and depletion of resources will be hit by the New Democrats, Doug Poile, NDP candidate for Lethbridge East said. He add- ed Social Credit is in trouble because of unemployment and 'Jie general state of the eco- nomy. None of the candidates was willing to make specific predic- tions about the outcome of the election Aug. 30, although both Charlie Buijert, NDP candidate for Lethbridge West, and Mr. Poile, said their party will win a number of seats. The NDP failed to capture a seat in the 1967 election. Mr. Buijert also predicted Social Credit may be defsated if the voter turnout is large. Mr. Anderson, asked if he ex- pects to win, replied: "We can't take anything for granted. We are going to have to work." Other candidates were equally cautious. While Mr. Gruenwald is confident the So- cial Credit government will be returned, he doesn't foresee a "shoo-in for anyone" in Leth- bridge West. Mr. Barton, who also refused to make any predictions about the outcome of either the local or provincial campaign, said he is starting his campaigning to- day. He said hp will use media advertising in the campaign, but major emphasis will be on pcrson-to-person contact. The New Democrats will rely mainly o npersonal door to door campaigning. Mr. Gruenwald said he wul run a low-key campaign at first, then concentrate on me- dia advertising and coff.ee par- ties. The Conservatives have not yet selected a candidate for Lethbridge West, but they hold their nomination meeting Wednesday. Dick Gray is the only announced contender for the nomination. The Liberals are riot expect- ed to contest either Lethbridge riding. Replacement for Kergan appointed Anthony Tobin, 24, of St. Paul, Alta., has been appointed direc- tor of preventive social services for Lethbridge, filling the posi- tion left vacant by the retire- ment of Bill Kergan. Educated at Upholland Col- lege in Lancaster, England, Mr. Tobin has lived in Canada two years. He was director of pre ventive social services in St. Paul before accepting the local position and also has experi- ence in hospital extension ser- vice, prison and reformatory work and treatment centres for delinquents. He will assume his new du- ties, at a salary of a year, Aug. 3. ICL1FF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAE Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
