(CP) to the Brit- ish Columbia Social Credit con- vention Friday made it clear that they don't consider tlie party the mastodon of B.C. pol- itics. Agnes Kripps, a former MLA for Vancouver South, got the ball rolling during her opening speech, claiming "newsmen are saying Social Credit is dead." She then added that "Social Credit is the only viable al- ternative" to the current New Democratic Party government. Then Grace McCarthy, the former Social Credit govern- ment's minister without port- folio, told delegates to "ask the press" about the accomplish- mcnls of W. A. C. Bennett and the future of Social Credit in B.C. In later interviews, several delegates pointed out that the party is alive and well, one of them saying, "pretty lively, eh? See, we're not The rash of assurances about the party's future apparenty stemmed from news media commentary following the last election. Several political ob- servers said then that the stun- ning defeat at the hands of New Democratic Party Premier Dave Barrett's "sociaiisl hordes" had dealt a death-blow to Social Credit in B.C. Last August's defeat left the party with 10 MLAs in the 55- member legislature. The NDP have 38 scats, the Liberals five and the Conservatives two. The note of optimism was furthered by the former pre- mier, who, in his keynote speech, predicted that Socia Credit would sweep the NDP out of office in the next elec tion. He said if an election were held today, the party would win its biggest-ever majority. It was the first mass meet- ng of the Social Credit troops ince the August 30th election, 'oday, delegates were sched- uled to discuss the primary res- >lution of the two-day conven- ion rules governing next November's leadership convers- ion.

"a deranged Cambodia negotiation offered While House supports Gray New York Times Service WASHINGTON The White House reaffirmed Friday Its support for L.

But Hak has replied that his government found several of the conditions unacceptable, in eluding the Communist's refusal to allow President Lon Nol or hfs supporters to take part in the ne.ro'.iations. The source said the offer was contained in a letter to the pre- mier which was purported to have been written by Hou Youn, r interior minister in the pro- i Communist shadow adminis- tration of Prince Norodom Siha- nouk.

TAXPAYERS LOSE Bill Knight (NDP-Assi- niboia) said profits of Polymer that previously were of benefit to Canadian taxpayers would not wind up in the pockets of private investors. The Conservatives up to now have been saying that the Poly- mer sale was illegal. They also say the sale price was much too small. But the NDP contends that buying Polymer was a misuse of the Canada Development Corp. Act whose purpose was lo help overcome foreign domina- tion of Canadian businesses ani allow Canadians lo invest their own resources.
