Phorm 1-403-243-1637 The byelection, the second since Premier Pecer Lough- eed's Progressive Conserva- tives ousted the Social Credit administration Aug. 30, 1971, has been described as a "do- or-die" contest for the major political parties in the prov- ince. One commentator said for the first time in Alberta's political history the "top available peo- ple" from all parties are con- tasting in the same constitu- ency. SECOND ATTEMPT The race is the second try to gain a seat in the legislature for Mr. Schmidt, 41, who took over the leadership of the Social Credit Party from forme Harry Strom Feb 3, 1973. Mr. Schmidt, who now leads the opposition from outside th legislature, lost to Labor Min ister Bert Hohol in Edmontp Belmont in the 1971 provincial election. He then moved to Lethbridg as academic vice-president o Lethbridge Community College After becoming party leader, he moved to Edmonton. He moved to Calgary after declaring his candidacy for the byelection Mr. Schmidt became th party leader in an upset vie tory over Socred MLA Bot Clark of Olds-Didsbury. there WERNER SCHMIDT BOB RUSSELL What have you got to lose? Your Eyes. A mountain sunset. A good book. A game of golf. A child's smile. That's what you've got to lose. Your Hearing. A bird at your window. The laughter of children. A good joke. Your baby's first word. That's what you've got to lose. Your Hands. A game of softball. Buttoning your shirt. Tying your laces. Brushing your teeth. That's what you've not to loco Your Legs. A brisk walk on the beach. A game of tennis. Going upstairs. Going downstairs. A bicycle ride. That's what you've got to lose. An afternoon of gardening. Getting into your car. A day skiing. A comfortable night's sleep. That's what you've got to lose Your Life. The rest of your life. That's what you've got to lose. You have a lot to lose. And safety has a lot to give. Follow safety regulations. Wear protective equipment. Have a safe attitude. Have a safe life. Workmen's Compensation Board ALBER1A is speculation that if Mr Schmidt loses the byelection his party leadership may be challenged. HAVE NO SEATS Mr. Russell, 41, has been leader of his party in Alberta since March 1971. The Liberals have no seats in the legisla ture. 'He ran unsuccessfully for the legislature in the St. Albert con stituency near Edmonton in 1971 and 1967. Like Mr Schmidt, his patty leadership may be at stake should he lose again. A victory for Mrs. Eng, 43-year-old school teacher am mother of two, would double the NDP representation in the leg- islature. NDP leader Grant Notley, Spirit River-Fairview, now holds the only NDP seat in the legislature. Of the 75 seas, the PCs have 48, the Socreds 24. There is one Independent. Mrs. Eng became party president in February this year. Both Mrs. Eng and Mr. Mc- Crae, the Tory candidate, are long-time residents in the Foot- hills riding, a dis- trict. Many of its residents are the professionals and business- men. Mr. Vvmy represented the riding since 1967. Mr. McCrae, a 43-year-old oi] company lawyer, was president of the Foothills Progressive Conservative Party when Mr. Lougheed and other PC candi- dates in Calgary were elected to the legislature two years ago. None of the four major party candidates is a political nov- ice. Both Mrs. Eng and Mr. McCrae have extensive behind- the-scenes experience, although it is their first attempt at the legislature. A Conservative defeat could hardly affect Mr. Lougheed's government as far as control the legislature is concerned. But the PCs, in perhaps their "inest hour in Alberta all 18 'ederal seats went to the Tories in the last federal election could hardly be expected to ;ake a defeat lightly. The importance of the June 25 byelection could also be demonstrated by the fact that n the last byelection in Stet- tler Feb. 14, 1972 both the TOP and the Liberals did not bother to enter candidates. In that byelection fill he vacancy left by the death of Conservative MLA Jack Rob- erston freshman Tory lidate Graham Harle defeated Norris, the Socred can- didate and MLA for Stettler for 5 years until his defeat to Mr. Robertson in the 1971 election. Education is a major issue in he Foothills byelection. The University of Calgary is locat- ed inside the riding. Many of; the residents support a law ichool for the university. Mr. Pylypa, a 20-year-old Ed- monton music teacher, ran un- iuccessfuUy as an Independent in the federal election last Oc- tober in Edmonton Centre. He entered the Calgary Foot- lills byelection as leader of tht Mtodernization Society of Alber- a, incorporated May 28, 1973. .11.15 IS tG he family unit and promote the arts and humanities in the >rovince. If elected, he said he try to abolish medicare in Alberta. Oil firm taken over BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Libya announced Monday it has nationalized the American- jwned 6il company Bunker Hunt. Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy announced the take- over of the Dallas, Tex.-based company in a public speech broadcast by the libyan radio. Khadafy claimed the an company lacks the legal usticiations for continuing its il operations in Libya. "The right to nationalize -omes under our sovereignty ver our he said. "No xtwer in the world can mar our iglit to nationalize our own oil- ield, or to stop pumping oil to he world.... We can do what- ver we want with our oil." The decision to nationalize iunker Hunt was adopted by he Libyan revolutionary com- mand council, Khadafy said in lis speech, which was also roadcast by the Egyptian and syrian radios. It is high time the Ameri- ans took a strong slap on their arrogant he added. "American imperialism has xceeded every limit. The Americans support for Israeli enemy, threaten our security with their aircraft carriers, and rom time to time the American threaten our territorial waters."
