Jfe 1 _..... i Executives Named For IVew Ridings Socreds Look To By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Letbbridge Social Creditors began preparing locally Tues- day night for a 1971 provincial election. About 80 persons attended a meeting at Allan Watson School which featured the election of temporary executives for the two new Lethbridge ridings.

Still not known is whether 01' not the annual conventions for the two ridings will be held to- gether. The ridings, formerly pro- posed as Henderson Lake and Oldman River, were changed by the Alberta Legislature to East Lethbridge and West Lethbridge. The initial names, suggested by an independent electoral boundaries commis- sion, were deemed too long by ML As. Although the Social Credit government need not call an election until 1972 when its five- year mandate runs out, Lelh- bridge MLA Jack Landeryou said "I wouldn't be surprised if the election is in 1971." And it was evident from speeches given by members running for1 executive positions Tuesday that the party is feel- ing the pressure of the Pro- gressive Conservatives. Conservatives, lead by Peter of Calgary, have named 38 of their candidates 'or the province's 75 seats. East Lethbridge soci'ed ex- ecutive comprises: Joe Hanra- han as president, a general district foreman for the depart- ment of highways who lost out The Two Arrested On Drug Charges Two Lethbridge residents, Linda Maxine Tyznenko, 19, and Gary James Derksen, 21, were arrested by RCMP in Lethbridge Tuesday on sep- arate drug charges.
