Doug Card said attendance at this year's fair was up substantially over the previous year, when about 20.000 people took in the agricultural exhibits. A meeting this week of people involved in Ag-Expo was told the 1975 fair will be held again in late winter for five days. Mr. Card said. "The fair was an absolute success." Mr. Card said. Although accurate attendance figures were not kept, the buiding was "comfortably filled at all times." Exhibitors made many useful contacts through the exhibition, with several making sales from their booths, he said. The meeting Wednesday decided the administration committee and its chairman should be selected by the sponsoring bodies the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, the provincial department of agriculture, and the Lethbridge Exhibition Board. Mr. Card said the committee responsible for the 1975 Ag-Expo wilt probably be chosen in late April. victim' WASHINGTON (Heater) Consumer advocate Ralph Na- der said Thursday President Nixon's problems with the Watergate political-espionage scandal are making things tougher for the average consumer. Consumer interests, Nader said in an address to an energy symposium here, have become ''hostage" to Watergate because the administration is siding more with big business on consumer and environmental issues. By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) The Pro- gressive Conservative Party, which traditionally provides the public with a ringside view of any internal quarrels, begins another round here this weekend and attention is centred on the party presidency. Frantic behind-the-scenes campaigning is going on in a presidential race that features Michael Meighen, 24, grandson of former prime minister Arthur Meighen, against incumbent Don Matthews, a London, Ont., businessman. Unlike previous years when the presidential race often jwas regarded as a figure-head popularity contest, some Reelings are running high. Mr. Meighen, a proud Que- becois, and has stirred strong support and strong resentment among some western MPs. Mr. Matthews apparently has heavy support in Ontario and the West, but his critics argue that the party association he heads has not accomplished enough in Quebec in the last year. Gray refuses comment Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Consumer Af- fairs Minister Herb Gray re- fused to say Thursday whether the combines investigation branch in his department is conducting further inquiries into possible cement price fixing in B.C. But he stated that he will confer with Justice Minister Otto Lang on a suggestion that a public inquiry should be held on the subject. MP's from two parties- Stuart Leggatt Westminster) and John Rey- nolds Richmond Delta) raised the B.C. cement combines issues in the Commons for the fourth day in a row. Reynolds raised questions in the "House Monday about family connections between members of the federal cabinet and one of the seven companies fined a record earlier this month for conspiracy to cut cement prices over a period of 14 years. He referred by name to for- mer Liberal Fisheries Minister Jimmy Sinclair, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's father-in-law, and the late Frank Ross, Finance Minister John Turner's step- father, both of whom were on the board of Lafarge Cement. Leggatt recalled Thursday that New Democratic Party MP Doug Rowland (Selkirk) asked Gray in June of last year to look into cement price fixing, at a ton, by three companies, one of them "Canada Cement Lafarge." He asked why no charges were laid in the case- Gray said that the combines branch "is aware of the situ- ation" and that he was sure it is carrying out its responsi- bilities.' but added that the Combines Investigation Act forbids comment on whether or not an inquiry is taking place "until the matter is completed either on the statement of the director or the taking of legal action." Leggatt then noted that the recently-concluded cement combines case in B.C. dealt with offences only up until Dec. 31. 1971. and asked whether an inquiry is in process to determine whether the price of cement still is .being fixed as it was prior to that date. Gray repeated that he couldn't answer. Reynolds stated that l-afarge Cement and Ocean Cement have made two identical price increases since January 1 of this year. "Would the minister consider holding a public inquiry into the cement industry in British Columbia in view of the connections of former Liberals in one of the cxnnpames that is presently fixing he asked. Gray retorted that any in- quiry under the Combines Act must be carried out on a con- Jtdentia! basis, but added: "I nwuld be happy to consider this matter with my colleague the Minister of Justice." COSTS HIGHER The cost of living in the Yu- kon and Northwest Territories ranges from 20 to 50 per cent higher than in the south, says Statistics Canada. Robert Stanfield's party leadership will not be an issue at this three-day but he has given notice of a constitutional amendment that would result in a vote of .confidence, or otherwise, at tail subsequent national .conventions. FOCUS ON RACE So most of the attention is being focused on the presi- dency. One MP working hard for Mr. Meighen is Joe Clark Rocky He has been stumping the country, concentrating his campaign on younger members. "If this party is going to ap- peal to the nation's youth and pick up needed seats in Quebec, then Michael Meighen must be the next national says Mr. Clark. Mr. Meighan's campaign lit- erature says there must be more than- "mere rhetoric" about appealing to Quebec voters. Campaigning by the two candidates will begin in earnest Friday when the party's youth wing begings its meetings, followed by the women's group. For the delegates attending the main convention, which starts Sunday, it will be mainly three days of policy discussions, based on working papers distributed by party head- quarters in advance. PAPERS EXTENSIVE The papers cover many areas of concern from external relations to pollution and will be boiled down and amended in various seminars before coming to the full convention. In most cases the delegates are likely to reaffirm existing policies, but changes could be made on the floor. The matters that gave the most difficulty to the 105- member parliamentary caucus involves the government's proposed national petroleum corpo- ration and foreign ownership policies. There were heated debates over "Canadianizing" the petroleum industry. The original proposition was that there be majority Canadian ownership of petroleum and natural resource industries by 1980, but there were strong objections from some Alberta MPs for singling out these industries. After a series of meetings the caucus decided the matter should go to the convention for decision. What is expected to emerge is a foreign-ownership policy that will apply to all industries and not single out petroleum and natural resources. Youth remanded for theft A 16-year-old Lethbridge youth pleaded guilty in provincial court today to breaking into a northside drugstore early this morning and stealing George Hufnagel, 344 19th St. S., was arrested about 40 minutes after a resident near Thriftway Drug reported a break-in at the store. Police recovered the money Hufnagel bad taken from a drawer in the building. Hufnagel. who had had his driver's licence suspended for 24 hours earlier in the evening, was also charged with driving while suspended. He was remanded to March 22 for sentencing. Police credited Leonard Chief Body, the man who reported the break-in and provided'a description of the getaway vehicle, with assisting the police in making the quick arrest. Native centre looks for home The Lethbridge friendship centre is looking for a new home, its board of directors was told Thursday night The lease on the building at 324 4th St. S. now occupied by the centre expires Aug. 1 and rental arrangements after that date will be made on a month-to-month basis. The centre has to have a permanent home, said Frank McDonald, president of the board. The location of the new centre doesn't matter. McDonald said, as long as it meets the centre's programming requirements. The board may purchase a building, using a maximum federal government grant he said.
