Both won their positions by acclamation at a meeting at tended by about 40 persons. Jlr. Euijert, 39, was the K'DP's unsuccessful candidate in the 1967 election. The city at that time had only one riding. He was born in Holland, ar- rived in Canada in 1954 and for the past 15 years has worked i for The Herald. Mr. Polie, 38. a native of Cal- gary, is a teacher of Grades 5 and 6 at Gilbert Paterson School. The NDP is the first to elect candidates locally for the election, expected to be called for early June this year. Notley raps government for policies By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Par- ty, said Wednesday the provin- cial government's "slap-happy export of resources" to foreign countries has meant a "slap- happy export of for Al- berta 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 hi those countries to fuel secondary industries. But after 36 years in power, the Social Credit government has developed no secondary in- dustries based on Alberta's na- tural resources, he said. Most of the value of the re- cent billion sale of natural gas to the U S. would go to for- eign gas and petroleum com- panies who owns 86 per cent of Alberta's industry. The govern- ment would actually receive l-300th of the total value, Mr. Notley said. The million tied up in Ed- monton'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 Montanaus The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce will hold its regular council meeting of May 5 on the preceedmg 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 Lethbndge and then visit Cardston and Shelby on their return trip. CUFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BIACK DENTAL IAE Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 barrel of oil is "scandously low." The Arab countries demand- ed a barrel, even before re- cent price hikes. "Perhaps we need the Shah of Iran to negotiate (oil royal- ties) for the province." Mr. Notley also contended Al- berta citizens are not receiving reduced prices on products, such as gas, which are derived from their own resources. He said the prices of oil prod- ucts are fixed "by the great oil monopolies. There is no appli- cation of the law of supply and demand." Bail lowered m case of B and E 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 each to each. Judge Elford lowered each man's bail, but neither man presented his money and both remain in custody until the March 8 bail is put up. Haas and Miller were arrest- ed Friday and charged sep- arately with attempted break- ing and entering at Acme Tele- vision Ltd., 535 13th St. N. On their first appearance, Friday, before Judge Elford each man entered a plea of not guilty. He also cited the case of the Maclntyre Porcupine Terri- tory which ships coal from Al- berta to Japan for a ton, but pays the government only 10 cents a ton, an "inexcusably low" sum. He also said the government, which "fumbles from crisis to has been totally inade- quate in dampening unemploy- ment in Alberta. The government has prom- ised to create man-days of employment, but over a year these amount to only 490 jobs. At the present time, per- sons are out of work. "This action barely helps them." Mr. Notley said Edmonton, instead of increasing its public works program, had in its bud- get offerings reduced the pro- gram. The increased budget for the coming year was just to cover "day-to-day workings" of the government. He suggested if the Progres- sive Conservatives replace So- cial Credit hi 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 Conserva- tives, 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."

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 would do well to build up pub- lic acceptance for a library- taxpayer George Dew, Lethbndge Chief Li- brarian, said Wednesday. Speaking of how funds for new library would be acquired Mr. Dew said, one thing taxpayers forget is that taxes won't go up with a new li- brary: 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 w.e have here now is a lot of gorgeous books all in a said Mr. Dew. "Our library now is like a large department store trying to opeiate out of a corner gro- can't be done because people can't sec all the prod- ucts available to them. "Our library facilities are absolutely he said "0 u r shelving is seven fe.ot. six inches high and the sev- en shelves m that space mean the top one and the bottom one aie inaccessible to the brouser because he'd have to climb a OUR OSCAR ladder or crawl on the floor to see what is on the shelves.

He said a nev, policy was de- veloped lasi fall regarding the appointment of school princi- pals. "Two types of committees were established to aid the board in its decision." he said. "The criteria com- mittee, set up to determine the criteria for examining the ap- plicants 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 ersity of Lethbridge, has screened the applicants and has chosen the top six he said. "These six applicants have been thoroughly interrogated by the committee and a recom- mendation will go to the board Tuesday from the committee." W. L.

If they could have browsed through it at the li- brary, 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 be- cause people could see the books then." said Mr. Dew.
