Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAtD S ANFF (CD lidmonlnn ;is an acute problem of high a K costs because it docs not allow private enterprise to par-tri rate fully in developing subdivisions. Bob Oivsiuk, excni-ive managing director of (he Alberta Housing Corpora t i o n said here. Mr. Orysiuk told a municipal ministr'ators' seminar that this may be a major reason wiv residential lots may cost SH.OOO more in Edmonton than in Calgary. Without the participation of >rivale developers in subdivisions in Edmonton, land spec-u a ion was more feverish than in Edmonton. The problem had resulted in the corporation buying up nine scuare miles of land near Edmonton fnr S12.000.000 last year. The land will be used for rcsi-denlial development and was e.x >ectcd to take care of Ed-nonton's growth for the next 15 vears. Mr. Orvsiuk said the land, part within the city limits, cost from ?tm and up an ere with an average cost of The normal per acre selling price would have been about an acre. A similar land assembly studv had been done at Slave and studies were being do le in four areas in the >rovince. llr. Orysiuk said he hopes Ed-imi iton will move toward allowing more participation of pri-va c developers in subdivisions. The Alberta Housing Corpor-a ion was set up in 1967 as a >rovincial crown corporation, ft is involved in land assembly, uiban renewal, senior citizens housing, community college dormitory housing, civil service housing, public housing, experimental housing and welfare lousing. Mr. Orysiuk said the corporation wili buy 30 units of welfare housing this year as an alternative to the social development department paying as-xonomical rents in numerous BANI'T (CI') Planning alone won't prevent the death of small towns but regional planning commissions should at least draw up plans tor their dying, municipal administrators were told here.

To Heath's Conservatives, traditionally the party of empire and power, these concepts ap-p r o a c h political blasphemy. They have pledged lo halt or re-verse these retrenchments. They have vowed to strengthen the country's defences, to work toward a restructuring of NATO and for preserving a British military role in Malaysia, Singapore, the Persian Gulf oil states and in the South Atlantic. Both Wilson and Heath foresee the contingency of phased American troop cuts in Europe through the 1970s. The Wilson government accordingly has set about pressing countries of the Warsaw pact to join NATO in a program of mutual balanced force reductions." Heath has taken a different tack with a plan for setting up a joint British-French nuclear deterrent to be held in trust for allied Europe. "A nuclear entente between Britain and France, far from weakening the alliance, could consolidate it on the basis of a more equal military partnership between Europe and a Conservative party discussion paper says.

If Labor wins the election Jnne t8, Wilson certainly will go on backing the United States de-spile his reservations about President Nixon's Cambodian venture. Roy Jenkins is likely to replace Michael Stewart as foreign secretary with a new emphasis on efforts for an East-West accord in Europe. Heath's foreign secretary probably would be Sir Alec Douglas-Home. The Conservatives would seek a nuclear weapons partnership with France, a probable halt to Britain's military withdrawal from Malaysia, Singapore and the Persian Gulf, and active co-operation with the white-supremacy regimes of southern Africa included renewed arms sales to South Africa. Developments on either side may imperil the broad bipartisanship in foreign affairs practised here. If they lose, the Labor party could be expected to assail right-wing trends in Conservative foreign Some Differences between the two main parties have emerged in their election campaigns even though foreign affairs are rare vote-catchers in Britain. Labor and Conservative leaders see eye to eye on quite a few things, however. Both pro-AGItBE ON SOME ISSUES fess loyalty to the North Atlantic alliance. Both want to see the Americans leave Indochina with a non-Communist South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Both hope for American-Soviet agreement on the Middle East, paving the way for an Arab-Israeli peace. Both seek to lead Britain into the Common Market if tile terms are right. Disagreements centre on how best Britain ought to set about safeguarding its security and extending it's vital interests. Since 19G4 Labor, to the dismay of the Conservatives, has translated the decline of British imperial power into a process of military withdrawal. The number of troops in far-flung bases around the world is to be cut in half by 1972. Defence operations east of Suez will end except tor a general capability to intervene in an emergency involving Commonwealth partners.

"The cost is prohibitive lo a family on an average income in such a situation.

The association said post-sec ondary institutions should be open on a year round basis and co ordinaled with hig! school programs so a student is able to proceed directly from high school to university with a minimum waiting period. "Students should be encoir-aged to start their higher' m Costs cation at other times than in the fall and they should be permitted to break for a rest at times other than the spring.
