Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE June Medicine Hat riding voters given economic alternatives at forum By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer MILK RIVER Candidates in the Medicine Hat riding clashed on everything from inflation to the cattle industry and the oil and gas situation in a forum at the Erie Rivers High School here Wednesday afternoon. Speaking to about 20 people plus a captive audience of grade 5 and 6 students. Liberal Bud Olson flailed away at the Conservatives' price and income policy, Conservative incumbent Bert Margrave attacked the Liberals' handling of cattle industry problems, the New Democrat's Lauranne Hernmingway claimed neither old line party had a program to stabalize farm incomes, while Socred Ed Ens blasted all three other parties for an alleged failure to present economic solutions to economic problems. On inflation, Mr. Olson said an army of civil servants government inspectors would be necessary to ensure that the Conservatives' income and price controls would work. "They haven't said how they'll administer he said. "It will take thousands of inspectors during the freeze and afterwards to make sure no one is getting around the rules." Mr. Olson also said that the PC policy has changed throughout the campaign. he said, "it was a wage and price freeze, then the workers asked what about other incomes and Stanfield said, we'll freeze incomes too. "Then they said the freeze was to be followed by flexible' controls, now they're calling it flexible guidelines." Mr. Hargrave told the forum voters have two broad choices in this election the Trudeau Liberal way of unchecked galloping inflation, or the Conservatives' determined plan to bring in a balanced budget by reducing government expenditures, a 90 day freeze to break the inflation psychology followed by flexible guidelines for the entire economy. "Our policy has been attacked for he added. "It's not nearly as vague as Trudeau's approach to inflation. "They have a defeatist attitude that inflation is worldwide that's why we're into this election." "We're into it because of a complete lack of leadership and responsibility in dealing with inflation." NDP candidate Hemmingway tied the inflation issue to agriculture, saying the stabilization of farm prices is an integral part of combatting inflation. Miss Hemmingway said neither the PC's, who introduced an agriculture stabilization act in 1958; nor the Liberals, who have promised to amend the act; have achieved the goals set out in the act's preamble, of assisting the agriculture industry to realize fair returns for its labor and investment and to provide farmers with a fair share of the national income. "Stabilization in agriculture must be based on orderly marketing through the wheat she said. Only the NDP are committed to orderly marketing, said Miss Hemmingway. Otto Lang's feed grains policy undermines orderly marketing, fragmenting the Canadian wheat board and putting grains marketing "right back to the booms and busts of the stock she said. Mr. Lang is the minister in charge of the wheat board. The NDP candidate also attacked Conservative claims that free markets will ensure that farmers will be independent and be able to look after themselves. "How can farmers be independent and look after themselves when the grain buyers are organized, the machinery companies are organized, the oil companies are organized and the transportation companies are she asked. Social Credit candidate Ed Ens told the forum that wage and price controls would be "a quick step to economic disaster in this country." It would benefit the factories in Ontario which could hold down wages while increasing profits, he said. They could circumvent price controls by exporting products, he said. Since there is no control on export prices, they could export their products, creating a domestic shortage, leading to black market prices in Canada, Mr. Ens claimed. The Socred candidate also attacked the Liberals and the NDP for their alliance, which he said did nothing to further free enterprise in Canada. "We're on our way to becoming just another naive socialist he said. And he called the Alberta Conservatives "19 piglets in a gunny sack held by Ontario." "Jack Homer said there's no room for a westerner in the PC party. We knew that when they threw Diefenbaker out." Mr. Hargrave devoted a good part of his remarks to the cattle industry situation, saying that Liberal cabinet ministers are putting pressure on agriculture minister Eugene Whelan to lift the ban on U.S. beef. If that happens, he said, it would be a direct result of "consumer and voter pressure dictating government policy, especially in Eastern Canada." and a "vicious and underhanded slap at the whole (Canadian) cattle industry." Mr. Olson countered the Hargrave charges by calling them "scare tactics" which were already having a bad effect on Southern Alberta cattlemen. "Mr. Whelan has said daily since Butz (U.S. Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz) sounded off, that he is not going to lift the DES said Mr. Olson. "We're not going to import the American beef problem which was caused by a price freeze." The four candidates later Wednesday faced a larger gathering at Unifarm sponsored forum in Bow Island. Lethbridge playgoers to tread boards in Whoop-Up Days The Lethbridge Playgoers will present daily make up demonstrations and four showings nightly of a 20 minute play at the Exhibition Pavilion during Whoop Up Days. The make-up demonstrations will take place in the afternoon and spectators will be invited to take part and be "made up" by one of the Playgoers' experts.

The tender is to test the market in an attempt to determine the interest of buyers in the property while reserving the right to refuse any sale. they intend to sell the 4.75 and 4.79 acre sites despite receiving a suggestion from their solicitor that it may be wise to hold the land until the "most opportune time to sell unsubdivided parcels" arrives. It was suggested the most opportune time would occur when the city decided to subdivide the Lakeview property and encourage development there. The city is now encouraging development in West Lethbridge. However, most of the trustees felt they had nothing to lose by testing the market and decided to issue a tender call this summer. The school board also made slight alterations Wednesday to a rough draft of a joint use agreement between it and the city for the community use of the Gilbert Paterson School. The amendments to the city's draft of the agreement will now be studied by the city officials and if they are agreeable to the alterations the formal agreement will only need the routine acceptance of both governoring bodies to become legal. The city provided of the estimated S700.000 cost of CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MBHCAL DENTAL UN. PHONE renovations and expansion and for furniture and fixtures at the school.

But the over-700 students in county high schools were out Wednesday. School begins again Aug. 26 and county officials are expecting an enrolment of students, a slight increase compared with the 1973-74 academic year.

The lowest temperature was 8 recorded May 3, at 28.3 degrees, compared with a record low of 11.4 degrees on May 1, 1954. Total precipitation for May was 1.9 inches, -g compared with 11.27 inches in 1902.

Their allowance for meals was increased by about 50 per cent to a day and mileage payments to cover car expenses was increased by one cent to fifteen cents a mile. Employees on college business will also be paid a "reasonable" hotel rate a night for each night private arrangements are made. When overnight travel is involved, employees will be paid a fiat rate of for meals, telephone calls, laundry, dry cleaning and other personal expenses. They will also be reimbursed taxi fares, parking charges and registration fees. Dean Cooper, director of finance, informed the governors the new rates for employee expenses were in line with the rates used by the province of Alberta for its employees. The LCC board also agreed Wednesday to share the cost of its employees professional development on a 50-50 basis. The college's portion of the 1974-75 professional development budget is The faculty association will pick up the tab for the remainder. Gordon Colledge, information officer, struck out for the second time when he again attempted to encourage the board of governors to purchase a commercial musical jingle for the college. Mr. Colledge informed the governors he had contacted several production houses and they all offered to provide a demonstration tape of the type of singing commercial they're prepared to produce for the college. But there was a hitch. Most of them wanted to ART GALLERY ARTISTIC PICTURE FRAMING SINCE 1958 -5 AVE S ICTHEftlDCE-AtTA HflBO OTIKEH Manager just for the demonstration tape. The final product would have required at least another of college money. In May, the governors refused to purchase a jingle prepared by an Edmonton production company because of its price tag. However, Wednesday they allocated toward the cost of setting up a local competition to encourage both professional and amateur musicians in Southern Alberta to write and produce a musical jingle for the college. A St. Paul. Minnesota man was appointed Wednesday by the public school board as principal of Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. Cornelius D. Guenter will officially begin his duties Oct. 1, following the Sept. 30 effective date of the resignation of Ken Sauer. who is leaving the post to become superintendent of Medicine Hat schools. Mr. Guenter, a former Albertan, resigned as the director of special services at Mounds View Public Schools in St. Paul to accept the LCI appointment.
