Corn meet here today A high-level closed meeting among officials of the grain corn industry, grain handling industry and distillery industry was held here today at p.m. Representatives of Calgary Power, the Alberta Corn Com- mittee and the grain handling companies were to discuss the involvement ol the distilling in- dustry within the grain corn industry in southern Alberta's irrigation belt. Only acres of corn were grown in this region last year but experts have predict- ed as much as acres is possible. The distilling industry In Western Canada now uses about 800 million bushels of grain corn annually, excluding the new million facility slated for Lethbridge. At present all the corn needs for the distilling industry comes from the St. Paul- Minneapolis, Minnesota region, Hoffman named NDP candidate By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Staff Writer The favorite of 70 New Demo- cratic Party supporters who .urned out Wednesday to nnnv nate a federal election can- didate was 37-year-old Leth Bridge Community College in- stuctor Hal Hoffman. With an appeal to the work- ingman, Mr. Hoffman beat his only competitor for the NUP nomination, Rudy Haugeneder, 25, a reporter with The Herald who appealed to those who fav- or social change, Mr. Hoffman, who grew up on a farm south of Winnipeg, was active in the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers union be- fore getting into education, said his campaign to represent Lethbridge riding in Ottawa will be fought on the issue ol "people versus money." He said he will "promote the popular interest, rather than the interest of the priveleged few." Mr. Hoffman ran unsuccess fully in the last Lethbridge cilj aldermanic election. While the party would not dis- close the vote, it was believed o be about two-lo-one In favor of Mr. Hoffman. He called on supporters to levote time to a campaign to elect an NDP member to the seat now held in the House of lommons by a Progressive Conservative MP. "The major task will be or- ganization and if we can make some substantial gains, I think we can win this constituency." Mr. Hoffman said he will work to get the low-Income earner and small-business man better economic deal. Mr. Haugeneder appealed to those who desired social change. He said if elected he would have worked to limit for- eign domination of the Canadi- an economy to 49 per cent, pro- posed a public railway and truck system and a better deal for farmers. Both men attacked the other political parties 'for accepting campaign funds from large corporations.

"An individual should be placed in a position where it becomes increasingly unprofit- able for him to hold onto Ills Mr. Kenward said in a news conference. To acliieve this, the tasli force report on regional plan- ning effectivenes recommends an 'escalating tax system" or an expansion of the capita gains fax mechanism. 'The report also recommends the provincial government pro- EMPLOYMENT NOTICE Th LETHBRIDGE and DISTRICT EXHIBITION BOARD Will BE HIRING FOR THIS YEAR'S FAIR AT THE FOLLOWING TIMES FRIDAY, JULY 7th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and SATURDAY, JULY 8th from 9 a.m. to 12 Noon in the EXHIBITION PAVILION WE R6QU1RS THE FOUOWING STAFF FEMALE CASHIERS AND TICKET TAKERS MALE PARKING ATTENDANTS SECURITY PERSONNEL AND CLEANING PERSONNEL ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE OVER 16 YEARS OF AGE de local authorities with leans to assemble land in crit- al development areas. Mr. Kenward said where a lece of land 'on which a com- lunily future entirely dependent use" is held by speculative land owner, the ity or town council should be ble to purchase it for a "rea- onable price." Expropriation rocedures would be the alter- ative, he said. The report, one of four done cross cross the the province, province, pust puts ment responsibility for making planning decisions. The southern Alberta com- mittee, and a similar commit- tee in the Peace River region, recommends the government formulate policy for the prov- ince's growth and development. Mr. Kenward said the fact that there is no policy now makes it impossible for region- al planning commisson to re- late their regional plans to a neighboring region. There is no specified common goal, he said. New Qiest director named ALLAN M. PURVIS The appointment of Allan M. Purvis of St. Albert as the as- sistant executive director ol the Lethbridge Community 2hest was announced today. Mr. Purvis, 29, will assume his duties July 24 and will be t h e new executive director when Jim Smith retires nexl January. A graduate of IJtah Stalo University in business admin istratibn, Mr. Purvis, married with two children, leaves lii present position as assistant di rector-fund development at th University of Alberto. "The board is pleased have someone with Mr. Purvis qualifications and feels for tunate in being able to hir publicity chairman Stev Dubelz said. Effective planning, however, s one common ground but the lanning commissions and cily nd town councils are often hamstrung" by the conflicts jetween good planning and c o n o m i c development, Mr. {enward said. Lethbridge city council, for sample, has often had to "ac- luiesce" to private investment, he said. "Council is in a ter- rible having to make a decsion between providing a sound tax base for the city and oking out for "quality of life." To get around the problem, he task force recommends the province distributes its sources and revenues "in such way as to both promote the concept of functional interde- pendence and secure the qual- ty of life desired by individual municipalities." Despite election talk to help the common man, the Conserv- ative Lougheed government in Alberta has promoted policies to ensure the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, prov- incial NDP leader Grant Notley charged Wednesday. Petroleum products continue to be shipped south at "bargain basement the large cities of Edmonton and Calgary are favored over smaller cen- tres and low-income earners .and small business continue to be sacrificed to investors and large multi-national corpora- tions, he told an NDP nomina- tion meeting. Tlie youthful MLA for Spirit River-Fairview said the Conser- vative government has not fol- lowed through on pledges dur- ing the election campaign last August to give private MLAs more power to speak out on policy. "I have never seen a lamer group of people in my life than [he Conservative backbench in the Alberta he said. Whenever the premier smiles, the backbench smiles too. Whenever the premiei frowns, the backbench frowns, it's almost reached the point that when the premier gets up to leave the room, tho back- bench gets up to leave too." The Liberal backbench Ottawa used to be called ch of trained he said. 'Well we don't liave trained seals yet, but we certainly have seals in training." Mr. Notley attacked- a new jrovuicial law that will exempt >eople 65 and over from educa- ion (axes on residential prop- erty. He said It is of no benefit .0 people in nursing homes, yel .s of maximum benefit lo "re- Jred millionaires" living on large properties. He said the proposed tax on oil reserves in the ground, to go into effect in 1973, is only going to earn about half of what it should from the oil in- dustry. The new Alberta opportuni- ties fund to provide million incentives to industry will not aid the small centres, as il has been billed to do, he said. The government did not limit incentives to communities out- side Edmonton and Calgary, he said, and will therefore contin- ue to give those two centres the advantage over smaller lo- cations in receiving industrial development. Cutbacks in money to "hu- man resources development" such as education, native peo- ple arsl the poor are part of the Lougheed government's "tick- le down philosophy." If the rich are allowed to get richer, he said, the Lougheed administration believes some of their money will trickle down to [hose at lower income levels. Company town Lelhbridge began as a com- pany town run by the North- Wcst Coal and Navigation Com- pany. However, an active board of trade presented a netition to tho North West Territories council in Regina in 1890 ask- ing that the community be in- corporated as a town. IVDP Neiv Deal for People EARLY RECOGNITION The World Dry Farming Con- gress was held at the agricul- tural grounds east of Hender- son Lake in Lethbridge in 1912. The youngest MLA in the Saskatchewan legislature told Lethbridge NDP support- ers Wednesday that the NDP drove the Liberals out of Sas- katchewan last June with a New Deal for People platform. The same socialist formula can be used with success against the Liberals in Ottawa, said Reg Gross (NDP-Gravel- Mr. Gross, 23, said "Alberta can be won" the NDP can elect five federal candidates here but it will be a fight to overcome "a lot of affluence and apathy" In this province. Albertans, being richer than Saskatchewan voters, are less ready for change, said. The New Deal for People platform, he said, should in- clude: wage and price controls tied to the Gross National Prod- uct of the Canadian economy; nationalization of financial institutions such as banks, cen- tral mortgage and housing cor- poration and the Farm Credit Corp; a guaranteed annual in- income; Canadian control of resource industries; abolition of the current de- fence program in favor of a more "para-civil" armed forces; and, tax reform to give the low-income and small business a belter deal. Mr. Gross said the aim of new education programs is "learning to live, rather than a learning to earn process." IU1L JULY 1 ONLY! 5-PIECE DINETTE SUITE 1 ONLYI 5-PIECE DINETTE SUITE Walnut.
