The candidates, both ' of whom live in east Lethbridge, will decide later which city riding - Lethbridge West or Lethbridge East - each will contest. Both won their positions by acclamation at a meeting at-tended by about 40 persons. Mr. Buijert, 39, was the NDP's unsuccessful candidate in the 1967 election. The city at that time had only one riding. He was bom in Holland, arrived in Canada in 1954 and for the past 15 years has worked for The Herald. Mr. Polie, 38, a native of Calgary, is a teacher of Grades 5 and 6 at Gilbert Paters on School. The NDP is the first party to elect candidates locally for the election, expected to be called for early June this year.. Notley raps government for "slap-happy" policies By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party, said Wednesday the provincial government's "slap-happy export of resources" to foreign countries has meant a "slap-happy export of jobs" for Alberta citizens. Mr. Notley, speaking to about 40 persons at a Lethbridge NDP nomination meeting, said the export of gas and oil to the U.S. and coal to Japan will be used in those countries to fuel secondary industries. But after 36 years in power, the Social Credit government has developed no secondary industries based on Alberta's natural resources, he said. Most of the value of the recent $2 billion sale iof natural gas to the U.S. would go to'foreign gas and petroleum companies who owns 86 per cent of Alberta's industry. The government would actually receive l-300th of the total value, Mr. Notley said. The $3 million tied up in Edmonton's industrial incentives plan is just a "drop in the bucket." He said the return to the government of 29 cents on a Goodwill trip by Montanans The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce will hold its regular council meeting of May 5 on the preceeding Monday, May 3, to accommodate 25-30 members of the Great Falls chamber who will make a goodwill tour of south Alberta points. The group is expected to travel by bus to Lethbridge and then visit Cardston and Shelby on their return trip. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LABI Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 barrel of oil is "scandously low." The Arab countries demanded $1 a barrel, even before recent price hikes. "Perhaps we need the Shah of Iran to negotiate (oil royalties) for the province." Mr. Notley also contended Alberta citizens are not receiving reduced prices on products, such as gas, which are derived from their own resources. He said the prices of oil products are fixed "by the great oil monopolies. There is no application of the law of supply and demand." Bail lowered in case of B and � William Haas Jr., 23, and Clarence Anthony Miller, 26, both of Lethbridge, appeared before Judge A. E. Elford in Lethbridge magistrate's court Wednesday to ask their bail be lowered from $300 each to $200 each. Judge Elford lowered each man's bail, but neither man presented his money and both remain in custody until the March 8 trial-unless bail is put up. Haas and Miller were arrested Friday and charged separately with attempted breaking and entering at Acme Television Ltd., 535 13th St. N. On their first appearance, Friday, before Judge Elford each man entered a plea of not guilty.

He also said the government, which "fumbles from crisis to crisis", has been totally inadequate in dampening unemployment in Alberta. The government has promised to create 118,000 man-days of employment, but over a year these amount to only 490 jobs. At the present time, 41,000 persons are out of work. "This action barely helps them." Mr. Notley said Edmonton, instead of increasing its public works program, had in its budget offerings reduced the program. The increased budget for the coming year was just to cover "day-to-day workings" of the government. He suggested if the Progressive Conservatives replace Social Credit in the next election, it will mean merely a "change of face, a change of style" in the legislature. The legislature, comprising 55 Socreds and 10 Conservatives, features a "Conservative consensus that smothers thought." The NDP "for all its flaws is based on the supposition that the welfare of our fellow man must be the purpose of all production." Liberals have meeting The Lethbridge Liberal Association met Wednesday and a nominating committee was selected to propose a slate of executive members for either one executive for the two Lethbridge ridings, or a separate executive for each. Ten delegates were named to the Alberta Liberal Association meeting in Edmonton March 13. An additional 12 delegates are expected to be named to complete the total delegates allowed - 22. Lethbridge Liberal Association officials declined to release the names of either nominating committee members or delegates to the Alberta meeting. CANDLE SALE!

Chief librarian outlines ^inadequacies' of present public library facilities By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer "The library board's feelings are that many sections of the city and perhaps city council are convinced we need a new library. But some, including some aldermen, believe we would do well to build up public acceptance for a library-taxpayer acceptance," George Dew, Lethbridge Chief Librarian, said Wednesday. Speaking of how funds for a new library would be acquired Mr. Dew said, ". . . one thing taxpayers forget is that taxes won't go up with a new library: the list of priorities would just be shifted by city council and something else would wait until another year." Current library facilities are inadequate. "What we have here now is a lot of gorgeous books all in a heap," said Mr. Dew. "Our library now is like a large department store trying to operate out of a corner grocery-it can't be done because people can't see all the products available to them. "Our library facilities are absolutely pitiful," he said. "O u r shelving is seven feet, six inches high - and the seven shelves in that space mean the top one and the bottom one are inaccessible to the browser because he'd have to climb a OUR OSCAR ladder or crawl on the floor to see what is on the shelves. "Those two shelves become storage space, and little else," said Mr. Dew. "We don't have any six foot tall sweet little old ladies here. so a number of people simply can't get at those shelves, and we have an excellent children's section, but we don't have any five foot, eight inch 10-year-olds who can reach the top shelves there, either." 22 candidates for LCI post The Lethbridge public school board will likely name the new principal for the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute at the next regular Tuesday board meeting. Dr. O. P. Larson, superintendent of the public school system, said today there are 22 applicants for the board to choose from. "Of these, 14 are firm applications and eight are holdover applications from the board's advertising program last spring," he said. He said the board deferred the appointment of a principal for LCI until this winter following an advertising program in the spring, resulting in the eight holdover applications. He said a new policy was developed last fall regarding the appointment of school principals. "Two types of committees were established to aid the board in its decision," he said. "The criteria advisory com: mittee, set up to determine the criteria for examining the applicants and for selecting the person, has done its work." The committee is made up of people from the central office, LCI staff, secondary principals and outside sources. "A selection advisory com-' mittee, with members of the school district and one from the department of education and and one from the University of Lethbridge, has screened the applicants and has chosen the top six applicants," he said. "These six applicants have been thoroughly interrogated by the committee and a recommendation will go to the board Tuesday from the committee." W. L. Neville, principal of LCI since September 1962, will retire from the position Aug. 31. Mr. Nevilile has been with the school district since 1943. THE "Wonder why Lethbridge doesn't have more parades?

The library does not have enough room for the people who use it. "We have 30 places for people to sit and read here, but if they're going to work, as a lot of them are, then there's only room for about 20. We need at least 100 places for people to work as well as places for people to sit and browse. "I think a number of books taken home and never read," .Mr. Dew said, "because the people find they really weren't that interested in the particular book. If they could have browsed through it at the library, they'd have taken a book they really wanted to read. "In the very first year of a new library, circulation would go up at least 15 per cent because people could see the books then," said Mr. Dew. The Lethbridge Library has a large selection of films, both color and black and white, sound and silent, plus a good collection of film strips but, "Our audio visual equipment and material are crammed into an area a woman would not accept for kitchen space" said Mr. Dew. "What we need is some public expression saying the people here really want a new library, to show the city council how they feel," Mr. Dew said. No word on ATA opposition The Alberta Teachers' Association had received no word this morning on its opposition to an application by the Leth-bridge and Medicine Hat school trustees for appointment of a conciliation officer in their current contract negotiations. Joe Berlando, the ATA's bargaining agent, said the board of industrial relations is meeting in Calgary today and he was hopeful some decision would be forthcoming. "We hope some decision will come from today's meeting so the talks can go ahead," he said. University appointment Dr. Sam Smith, president of the University of Lethbridge, announced today the appointment, effective in July, of Dr. Philip Deane as dean designate of the faculty of arts and science for the U of L. Dr. Smith said he is confident that not only the university but the community at large will benefit from Dr. Dearie's involvement with the U of L. Dr. Deane is now associated with Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Quebec.
