Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _. Saturday, March 30, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD - 3 Economy on the upturn WASHINGTON (CP) - The Canadian economy, as assessed at the United States embassy in Ottawa, is on the upturn this year and the market for foreign explorers should be much better than in 1970. But the picture painted by Borrie I. Hyman, commercial attache, is not entirely rosy. Canadian unemployment "may lessen only slightly, if at all," during the year "but should not worsen." Such problems will probably present substantial social and economic burdens "and must be worked into the equation of popular confidence on which so much of national economic recovery will depend." Nevertheless, "a rough average of informed forecasts suggests that the Canadian economy will be brighter this year." Also, "import demand will hearten the many exporters who searched in vain for a growth factor in the Canadian market last year." GladiHtor For large campers or heavier loads GVW TO 8,000 LBS. Test-Drive the extra go-power of 4-Wheel Drive UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-2805 H y m a n's assessment, published in the current issue of the U.S. commerce department's magazine Commerce Today, adds: 'Although 1970 was not a vintage year in terms of Canadian import growth,, the American exporter-and especially firms hew-to-market or new-to-exports -should always be aware that even in the bad years Canada is our best export market and will be in the foreseeable future." In his opinion, some of the most promising export prospects for this year are related to mineral resource develop-farm equipment and consumer durable goods. "Consumer spending, government purchases and residential construction in 1971 are expected to bring the Canadian economy out of near stagnation in 1970 to a growth in gross national product of seven per cent to eight per cent. Real growth may be on the order of 3.5 per cent to five per cent, with the government taking the most optimistic view. Hyman says the Canadian consumer held on to his money rather tightly last year and now has an above-average level of savings. Also, his disposable income is on an uptrend, much of his debt has been liquidated and interest rates are sliding down. "The only issue is whether his confidence will be sufficient to overcome coexistence with heavy unemployment." Boy, 14, sentenced to penitentiary OTTAWA (CP) - Solicitor-General Jean-Pierre Goyer will look into the case of a 14-year-old boy sentenced to serve a term in penitentiary in British Columbia. Frank Howard (NDP- Skeena) said it is shocking that a youth should be consigned to what he called an education-for-crimirtality institution. He asked if there is no procedure to ensure that a boy is not sent to mingle with hardened criminals in federal penitentiaries. Mr. Goyer said he was shocked and will look into the case. But he said there is little the federal government can do if provincial courts follow provincial laws. The boy, whose name was ordered withheld by the court, was sentenced at New Westminster, B.C.

New driver course set for grade 10 EDMONTON (CP) - Driver education should be available as an optional credit course in Grade 10 in the next school year, Education Minister Robert Clark announced in the legislature. To be worth two credits, the course will be the responsibility of the teacher in the classroom although a sizeable portion will include actual experience in an automobile. Mr. Clark said driving instruction will be handled either by the school system, private firms or the Alberta Motor Association. Lewis is still leading in NDP contest OTTAWA (CP) - Even his. opponents agree that David Lewis is still leading the New] Democratic Party leadership contest, to be decided here in convention April 21-24. The 61-year-old deputy party leader said in an interview that he is well ahead in the campaign and has no reason to doubt he will lead after the convention's first leadership ballot. Ed Broadbent, 34 - year - old MP for Osbawa-Whitby, conceded that Mr. Lewis is ahead but maintained he is a close second with James Laxer, the left-wing Waffle group candidate, in third place. Mr. Laxer, 29 - year - old lecturer at Queen's University, said he is clearly in second place with Mr. Broadbent and John Harney neck - and - neck for third. Mr. Harney, 39, former secretary of the Ontario NDP, could not be reached for comment. INDIRECT COMMENT The fifth candidate, Frank Howard, 45 - year - old MP for Skeena, commented indirectly by saying he is considering accompanying a parliamentary delegation to Australia for about two weeks beginning late this month. The five candidates have attended together 20 party meet ings across the country. The candidates agreed they are sick and tired of hearing each other's speeches. Mr. Broadbent said it is a meeting highlight when a member of the audience asks a new question. Mr. Lewis said the candidates not only say the same things night after night but often say them in the same way. Mr. L a x e r said listening to each other has been an exercise in survival. Mr. Broadbent and Mr. Laxer both claimed they have cut into Mr. Lewis's early lead. Mr. Laxer said the longer the leadership campaign goes on the more the 2,000 convention delegates are considering the need for a change in party  policy and attitude. He e s t i m a t e d that Mr. L e w i s' lead over him might be between five and 10 per cent. He was some five per cent ahead of Mr. Broadbent and Mr. Harney. Each candidate is allowed a maximum $10,500 for bis campaign, including travel and the convention itself. DAVID LEWIS Check Capitell Before You Buyl CARPET and LINO (Complete Installation!!)

IS WINTER REALLY OVER FOR THE CAPITAL?-Cro- cuses push their way through bare patch in snow on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, usually a sure sign of spring which begins officially March 21, but it's hard to convince Ottawans that winter is over.

Parliament Hill are made possible because of heating pipes beneath the ground. Mackenzie Valley studied as site for oil pipeline Prince Charles 'more to offer' Canadian youth TORONTO (CP) - John Dief-enbaker said here that if Prince Charles lived in Canada, he "would give young Canadians something to look up to." "He has more to offer than the oddballs mumbling Maoist quotations." The former prime minister told a meeting of the Women's Canadian Club that he is des-turbed wth a gradual erosion and undermining of the monarchy. "Where is the Royal Mail?" he asked. "There is no longer a Queen's Printer." He suggested the Queen should come to Canada to open Parliament from time to time. LANGLEY, B.C.

Mr. Hurd said in an interview the next step will be another report on later research findings "or an application to build a pipeline." Canada has proposed construction of a pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley to move U.S. oil from Alaska's Prudhoe Bay. Ottawa has told Washington it fears pollution of Pacific coast waters if a projected Alaskan pipeline is built and the oil is shipped in huge tankers to refineries just south of the B.C. border. "Even if the Alaska pipeline is built, there's no reason to think a Mackenzie Valley pipeline will not be built some time in the future," said Mr. Hurd, who is also president of Trains Mountain Oil Pipeline Co. of Vancouver. "But if the Alaskan pipeline is not built, it will mean a difference in timing." He said his company's research program was launched at a time when there was no reason to think the Alaska pipeline would not be built. Reason for the study was to determine the technical, ecological and financial feasibility of a pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley to Edmonton. "There has been a great deal of optimism over the chances of oil discoveries in the Canadian north," said Mr. Hurd. "But if it's no for the Alaska pipeline, then it's a plus for the viability of a Canadian line." He said a test study, only part of the research program, has been carried out over a year at a site two miles from Inuvik, N.W.T. This study, Mr. Hurd said, involves circulating heated oil through a 2,000 - foot - long, 40-inch diameter pipe. About 900,000 barrels a day moves through the line at temperatures ranging from 160 to 180 degrees. He said information from the preliminary stages of the program has been sent to relevant federal government de p a r t-ment, adding: "We have made some contact with the department of the interior and other appropriate departments of the U.S. government."
