Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRiOGE HIRALD Wednwday, June 6, 1973 B.C. Socreds vying for Bennett post W. A. C. BENNETT VICTORIA (CP) The start- ing gun in the race for lead- ership of the Social Credit party in British Columbia went off months ago but most of the run- ners have yet to report in Ever since the party took a shellacking at the hands of the New Democratic Party in last year's provincial election, it has been rumored that party leader W. A. C. Bennett would step down. He made that e Tuesday, brt so far the only person to de- clare himself a leadership can- didate is James Mason, a rela- tively unknown accountant from Burnaby. A number of prominent Social Creditors, cabinet ministers in the previous administration, are thought to be vying tor the post but none has so far committed himself." Phil Gaglardi, colorful Pente- costal minister from Kamloops, minister of highways and minis- ter of rehabilitation and social improvement when the Social Credit government was in power, is 60 years old but has often hinted that he wouldn't mind being party leader. Leslie Peterson, a 50-year-old lawyer and former attorney- general, has also been picked by some as a likely successor to Mr. Bennett. Both Mr. Gaglardi and Mr. Peterson were defeated in the Aug. 30 election. James Chabot, 56. former la- bor minister re-elected to repre- sent Columbia River, is another possible candidate. 0'ier possibilities include for- mer municipal affairs minister Dan Campbell and former min- ister without portfolion Grace McCarthy. There is also a mysterious candidate. Agnes Kripps, for- mer Social Credit member for Vancouver South, sajs she will announce his name in due Pattern 714! course. She has said only that her secret candidate is a man and that he is a real find. WANTS YOUNG ONE The former pre- mier has expressed no prefer- ence for any particular person to succeed him. He has said only that he or she should be "a brilliant young some- one about 40 with business ex- perience. He refused Tuesday when an- nouncing his retirement to say whether he would like to see his 41-year-old son Bill take over the leadership. All Mr. Bennett would say is that he would not like to see "carpetbagger" run for election in the Okanagan South riding he has represented since 1941. Included in his definition of carpetbaggers, he said, were Mr. Peterson, Mr. Gaglardi, Mr. Campbell and Mrs. McCarthy. In a tour of the province be- fore announcing his retirement, Mr. Bennett harped on the harm If- believes the New Democratic Party will do to the province if allowed to remain in power. He talked of a "crusade" that must be mounted, "a holy war against the socialist hordes." The leadership convention to be held in November will be the first for the party which came to power in B.C. in 1EH2 and won seven successive elections.

Ottawa acts on pledge to boost Canadian books LOS ANGELES (CP) The Canadian governments decision to take a direct hand in the promotion of Canadian book sales abroad will take shape at two important American con- ventions in June. About books publish- ed in Canada will be displayed at the American Booksellers Association convention here, opening June 10, and another selection equally large will be shown at the American Li- brary Association convention in Las Vegas, Nev., June 23. A spokesman for the Cana- dian consulate here said the two conventions mark the most important events of the year in the United States at which Canada can sell books of all kinds, ranging from children's fare to heavy academic tomes. The Canadian government has opened book stores in Lon- don and New York, and is to do so soon in Paris, where Cana- dian publishers will have re- tail outlets as well as whole- sale-order desks.

The booksellers convention here will draw wholesale buy- ers from acro3S the U.S., and the Canadian books on display will cover all the popular range of reading matter, from the fields of travel, wildlife, fiction and children's books. The librarians' convention in Las Vegas will draw a more scholarly group of book buyers, and for that reason the selec- tion of books to be shown by Canada will be modified. Actu- al selection of titles is being arranged by a committee of book publishers and govern- ment officials. The displays are being ar- ranged by the exhibits section of the Canadian department of industry, trade and commerce. Publishers and booksellers will have separate booths in which to display their wares, but the whole display will be co-ordi- nated to make a Canadian splash in the convention cen- tres. JUDY LaMARSH Judy LaMarsh, former feder- al cabinet minister, said in Hamilton there is a possibility she may run for leadership of the Ontario Liberal Party when Robert Nixon steps down. Miss LaMarsh, in a speech to a Canadian Club conference, said she probably will come back to Ontario when her con- tract with a Vancouver radio station, where she's hostess on, r a hot line show, expires in Sep- tember. She also is considering teaching law and writing a book about broadcasting. But Miss LaMarsh said she is in no hurry to decide on her future. "I'm going to enjoy the sum- mer. It's no One for malting decisions." Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott charged after a White House meeting with President Nixon that a cam- paign is under way to "get the president" over the Watergate affair. "I don't think that it will he added. Scott did not identify those he t! i ught were out to "get the but he implied he believed the Wateigate scandal had become a partisan politi- cal affair. He said those now trying to bring down Nixon were "the people who would rather have scon another president" elected last year when Nixon scored a landslide victory over his Dem- ocratic opponent Senator Geo- rge McGovern of South Dakota. Western ministers plan united front BRANDON (CP) Ministers of four western provinces to- day began a two day closed- door meeting aimed at estab- lishing a united position on transportation and economic development of the west. Manitoba Industry Minister Leonard Evans said particular emphasis will be placed on highway and rail matters. He said the National Transpor- tation Act "has permitted the railways to adopt policies which, in some cases, conflict with Western Canada's eco- nomic development." Other topics scheduled for discussion include federal gov- ernment purchasing policy, the responsibilities of fed- eral agencies, and the assist- ance programs of the federal department of trade and com- merce. The meeting is being attend- ed by Mr. Evans, British Co- lumbia Highways minis t e r Graham Lea, Alberta Industry Minister Fred Peacock, and Attorney General Roy Roma- nov and Industry Minister Kim Thorson of Saskatchewan. Decisions reached at the I meeting will be presented by the four western premiers to Prime Minister Trudeau at a meeting set for late July in Calgary.
