Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 TH1 IFTHBRIDOl HHALB Moy 5, 1970. Wallace's Future At Stake Voters In Mood For Fresh Team Alberta Tories Confident Of Win In IS ext Election MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) George C. Wallace puts his political reputation on the line GEORGE WALLACE Faces Test Tuesday in a Democratic party test which will determine Ala- bama's next governor. A defeat will seriously tarnish his image as a political consequence. Negro voters could play an important, if not pivotal role, in the outcome of the party race to choose a candidate for the Nov- ember general elections. The Republican party will run candidates for some lesser off- ices in November, concentrating on the county courthouses in the U.S. Congress and state legisla- ture, but is not expected to put anyone in the governor's race. Wallace, a former governor, has soft-pedalled talk that he might run again as a third- party candidate for the United States presidency. Nevertheless, he is still regarded by some as a potential candidate if he is elected governor, even though, he says "I'm not running for president; I'm running for gov- the white-supremacist Wallace and the present Ala- bama governor, Albert Brewer who became governor at the death in 1968 of Wallace's wife. Gov. Lurleen Wallace, have said they will win the Democratic nomination for governor without a runoff.

Both Miii-ders, Election Not Linked Newsmen Admit Female Writers Into Press Club OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Press club has relented and voted 78 to 21 to admit "working female journalists" as members.

WASHINGTON (AP) The labor department has no evi- dence that the murders of United Mine Workers official Joseph Yablonski and his family were linked to Yablonski's un- successful attempt to win the union's presidency, Labor Sec- retary Geor'ge P. Schultz said Monday. Yablonski, his wife and daughter were found slain in their home at Clarksville, Pa., less than a month after he was defeated Dec. 9 by incumbent W. A. (Tony) Boyle for the presidency. Yablonski, charing irregulari- ties, had asked the labor depart- ment to intervene during the election campaign, but his plea was rejected on grounds he had not exhausted remedies within the union. The department has since brought court action to set aside Boyle's re-election.

Cry 'Death To Communism' KABUL (AP) thou- sand white-turbaned Moslem mullahs and their followers, crying "Death to communism" and "Allah is our marched on the Afghan parlia- ment today. A half-mile-long file sur- rounded the parliament build- ings, 300 yards from the Soviet Embassy, in a demonstration of the anti-Communist feeling which has been growing here since the official celebrations last week marking the 100th an- niversary of the birth of Lenin. About 300 police and riot- squad members contained the march. Members of parliament crowded on the roof to watch. The marchers waved banners inscribed with verses from the Koran. Some were complaining because the pro-Communist weekly Parcham used the Ara- bic equivalent of "God rest his soul" in connection with Lenin, a phrase usually only used here about the Prophet Mohammed. Russian Advisers In Mideast MOSCOW (Eeuters) Pre- mier Alexei Kosygin said Mon- day military advisers are work- ing with Egyptian troops on Canadians Serve .With Israeli Armed Forces CAIRO (Reuters) About foreigners, including Ca- nadians, are serving as volun- teers with the Israeli armed forces, the Egyptian weekly magazine Rose Al-Youssef claims.

Mr. Glasier, formci' president of the Bureau of Broadcast Measurements, served (lie last nine years as a director of the Audit Bureau of Circulations, and four years as a director of the Industrial Advertising Asso- ciation.

"appropriate functions" agreed between Moscow and Cairo. Kosygin was asked at a news conference whether he could confirm or deny reports that So- viet pilots are operating from bases in Egypt. He made no specific reference to Soviet pilots in his reply, but said: "You see, we have an agree- ment with the government of the United Arab Republic under which Soviet military advisers are in the troops of the UAR." "They are there for the pur- pose of aiding the UAR in the struggle against Israeli aggres- sion which' is massively sup- ported by the United States, which is providing Israel with arms and is extending all-out support to Israeli aggression against that country New B.C. Daily Paper Launched PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) A new daily newspaper, the North Star, was launched re- cently in this central British Co- lumbia city. Tlie paper is staff-owned but is being financed by brewer-in- dustrialist Ben Ginter, who said he has put more than into the North Star so far. Publisher of the North Star is Bill Hambly, 53, who joined the new venture after 25 years as managing-editor of the Colum- bian in New Westminster. Managing editor is R o 11 i e Rose, 37, a veteran British Co- lumbia journalist who joined the Ginler-owned Weekly Progress here last September. province joined Confederation in 1905, already have nominated about 30 candidates compared with four for the governing So- cial Credit party. With the resignation of a cab! net minister last week, Premier Harry Strom must call a byelec- tion "before the 1971 session. This has led to speculation there may be a general election this year. The premier hasn't faced the electorate since being named leader of the provincial Social Credit party when E. C. Man- ning retired in 1968. Voting usually comes every four years. The S o c i a 1 Creuii term ex- pires in 1972. They now have 54 of the 65 seats while the Con- servatives have 10 and there is the one vacancy. PCs ADD FOUR Since the 1967 election the Conservatives have increased their strength in the legislature by four seats. They won two byelections and were joined by a Liberal and an independent. One of the byelection victories was in solid Social Credit terri- tory Edmonton Strathcona, which had been held by Mr. Manning. But they still have a formida- ble task if they hope to form the government. The Social Credit party has been in power since 1935, usually with over- whelming majorities Additionally, the Social Credit party last year altered its or- ganizational structure to involve more people in election plan- ning. Nevertheless, the Conserva- tives were buoyed by changes in the legislature's m a k e up and have established constituency organizations in the 75 provin- cial ridings 10 more ridings than in 1967 due to redistribu- tion. 100 Copies plus rax 5269 Third Ave.5.

THE CANADIAN FORCES Bridge Town House Motel 12 Noon to 8 p.m. Wed., May 6, 1970 The province, under the boundary changes, is made up of 37 rural and 38 urban scats compared with the old 38-27 split in 1967. When Premier Strom decides to call an election his party will have some notable gaps. MINISTERS CHOP OUT Gordon Taylor, highways min- ister, -resigned last week to be- come deputy minister of trans- port in Ottawa. Provincial Treasurer A. 0. Aalborg says he intends to retire as does J. Donovan Ross, minister of lands and forests. Agriculture Minister Henry Ruste missed, through illness, most of the 1970 session and is a doubtful starter in the next elec- tion. Also, at least four govern- ment backbenchers have an- nounced they won't seek re-elec- tion. The Liberals have been rele- gated to the political wilderness and now, leaderless, they ari> attempting to rebuild. Their troubles began in 1968 when leader Mike Maccagno re- signed his seat to run federally. The byelection was won by Social Credit, leaving only two Liberals in the legislature. In 1969, BUI Swilzer died and the Conservatives won the by- elention. Just before the 1970 session opened, the remaining Liberal, Bill Dickie, joined the Conservatives and leader Jack Lowery of Calgary announced ills resignation. NDPs HOI'EFUL Grant Motley, 31, leader of the New Democratic Party, which hasn't held a seat since 1966, says interest in the' parly has "increased dramatically" in the last few iionths The party's membership had reached and continued to grow. He ran third in the byelection to fill Mr. Switzer's seat behind the Conservative and the Social Credit candidates. Mr. Notiey said many Alber- tans realize that if the Conserv- atives win the next election it will "mean changing to a Tory party with a Social Credit plat- form from a Social Credit party with a Tory platform." Peter Loughccd, 41, Conserva- tive leader, said the next elec- tion will be "a two-party battle between the Social Credit and the Progressive Conservatives." "We recognize we will be the underdog in the next election and that the odds are against us. However, there seems to be a mood developing for a fresh new team."
