Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 20, 1974 THE LETHBBIOOE HERALD 3 Happy Lenko returns MONTREAL (CP) Tears flowed freely Tuesday night when Eugene Lenko, who had tried for years to return to his native Canada from the Soviet Union, greeted relatives at Montreal International Airport. As Mr. Lenko, 36, walked through customs, he spotted his sister Olga Aplin, of Ottawa, and her husband Nick, and rushed towards them. Mr Lenko had not seen his relatives since he had moved with his Ukrainian parents from Canada to the Soviet Union in 1956. Behind Mr. Lenko, his wife Svetlana, also 36, walked a bit apprehensively but was soon included in the circle of hugs and kisses as the two families almost danced before television cameras. The Lenko's three children, Olga, 13, Tanya, 9. and Daniel, 6, looked tired and bewildered EUGENE LENKO Daniel dragged a huge yellow teddy bear behind him. The Lenkos arrived at 6 10 pm. EST on an Air Canada flight from Moscow. Before departing, Mr. Lenko had said "I feel great I can hardly believe I am going back to my native country Presideney upset marks Tory rally GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET H LPre Lethbridge......26 7 Pincher Creek... 23 0 Medicine Hat 26 5 Edmonton.....23 2 .01 Grande Prairie 32 4 Banff.........28 3 Calgary 23 10 Victoria.......53 32 Penticton....... 48 24 Prince George 41 24 Kamloops....... 49 28 Vancouver...... 50 32 Saskatoon. 15 -5 .05 Regma.......14-10 03 Winnipeg....... 9 -9 Toronto......... 37 16 Ottawa 37 6 01 Montreal .37 6 .04 St. John's....... 38 29 .01 Halifax 37 30 .01 Charlottetown Fredericton Chicago New York 35 22 .05 35 20 .01 41 30 59 33 Miami.......... 77 53 Los Angeles..... 63 57 Las Vegas...... 69 50 Phoenix 76 61 .20 Honolulu........ 81 68 Mexico City..... 75 50 FORECAST: Lethbridge Calgary Medicine Hat Sunny today and Thursday except for a few cloudy periods and chance of a brief flurry.

Alberta iron ore study scheduled EDMONTON (CP) The provincial and federal governments plan to spend during the next two years on a pre-feasibility study of the low-grade Peace River iron ore deposits in northwestern Alberta. W. J M. Wenzel, assistant deputy minister of industry and commerce, said Tuesday the study will determine which modern technologies available can be applied to upgrade the Peace River deposits Mr. Wenzel said a consulting agreement has been signed with the Krupp interests of West Germany for a technical analysis of the ore. Samples will also be tested by the Alberta Research Council and the federal department of energy, mines and resources. Krupp was selected as a technical consultant because it has developed technology that has been applied to similar ore deposits in other parts of the world. The technical study will be completed this year. Glenlea wheat contracts available WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board Tuesday asked producers interested in growing Glenlea wheat under contract this year to apply for their contracts as soon as possible. The current export embargo on Glenlea seed will be lifted April 1 by the federal government to permit the sale outside Canada of seed not required under the wheat board's contract program. The embargo was originally set to ensure adequate seed supplies for all producers in the contract program. After April 1. Prairie producers cannot be certain that Glenlea seed will be available in the required amounts. Producers are guaranteed delivery of 2.500 bushels for every 50 acres seeded under contract with a limit of 350 acres for each producer.

TME CARRIAGE CHOUSE MO-OP.VM By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) To some it was an upset, to others it was a victory for the establishment, but after all the hoop-la died down Tuesday, Michael Meighen, a 34-year-old Montreal lawyer, emerged as the new president of the Progressive Con- servative Party. The campaign was a highlight of the three-day general meeting of the party, billed largely as a policy- making session, but which clearly featured a torrid race for the presidency between Mr. Meighen and incumbent Don Matthews, a wealthy Lon- don, Ont., house-builder. As some voting dele- gates, along with more than 800 alternates and observers, talked over policy papers, the presidential campaign was going on constantly. And while most senior party members maintained a- neutral stance in public, there was deep interest, if not involvement, in the campaigns. It was known that party Leader Robert Stanfield favored Mr. Meighen, a grandson of former prime minister Arthur Meighen, although he carefully avoided any comment. And party sources say it was no ac- cident that Liam O'Brien, a former executive director of the party, maintained a high profile as he paraded Meighen posters around the convention floor. Many of the MPs who origi- nally supported Mr. Stanfield's bid for the party leadership in 1967 were actively working for' Mr. Meighen. They included Flora MacDonald and the who said that "I just can't stay out of a political fight." And some, taking an overly- simplistic view of the feud, were quick to note that Mr. Matthews's nominator was Sean O'Sullivan (PC Hamilton Wentworth) who was a former executive assistant to former prime minister John Diefenbaker. But it was not a contest be- tween the Stanfield and Die- fenbaker forces of the any such division still exists. Some opposed Mr. Meighen because he is Quebec-based; some opposed Mr. Matthews because, they said, he has not been able to light fires under provincial organizations. With Mr. Meighen placing heavy emphasis on his plans to rebuild the party organization in Quebec, the province got special attention from both candidates. "In Quebec, in the next elec- tion, our efforts 4vill help tip the said Mr. Matthews. Please trust me with the job." Mr. Meighen, who was an unsuccessful candidate in Westmount riding in the 1972 election, said his election would not preclude another shot at Parliament. CHANGES UNLIKELY While all the advance billing about the meeting emphasized policy, it is unlikely that any dramatic changes will occur in the party's basic policies. There was only one afternoon devoted to policy discussions among the morning session was taken up with MPs expanding on working papers before the results of votes will not be known for several weeks. And the parliamentary caucus is not bound by any decisions reached by the delegates What the meeting did accomplish, was firing up the for the next election Thiough a series of constitutional manoeuvres, the delegates were faced with an unexpected vote on the party leadership Sunday night, and to the surprise of no one, Mr. Stanfield was given a resounding vote of confidence. Only 14 per cent favored a leadership review. From then on it was political coasting for the leader, who was given a standing ovation practically every time he entered the convention rooms.
