About three weeks ago, Mr. Lobnry set up his own postal service. Using a motorcycle to make his rounds, he guaran- teed customers same-day del- ivery on local letters for seven cents a letter, one-cent cheaper than the post office. He was in business two weeks, making as much as a day. His success story was written up in a suburban week- ly newspaper.

Mr. Orlikow, working with salai7 figures supplied by the government, says that the num- ber of public servants in lop sal- ary brackets has increased by 55 per cent since 1968.

Rural Alberta slill ailing says Notley STETTLER (CP) The Pro- gressive Conservative govern- ment has not lived up to an election promise to revive rural Alberta, Grant Notley, the prov- ince's New Democratic Party leader, said here. Mr. Notley told a public meet- Ing that the Conservatives' Al- berta Opportunities Fund, a loan program designed to at- tract industry to small centres is a farce because it includes the province's two major cities. He said Edmonton and Cal- gary, which can fend for them- selves, should be excluded he- cause small communities would not stand a chance in competi- tion against the major centres. loturowy, July 29, 1973 THI LTHBRIDG!

The CBC president said the corporation recognizes the need [or northern regional programs to be supplied to northern view- ers. But the first step was to sup- ply existing services to the north. Northern programs would be supplied later. The corporation has been crit- icized by some northern resi- dents for plans to supply south- ern network programs to the North. The value of the satellite to northern residents was stressed by former communica- tions minister Eric Kierans at the time Anik was first pro- posed.
