Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, May 14, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCI HERALD 13 Twin rarities Dairy farmer Lynn Atwood takes a look at his twin hinnies, offspring of a donkey mare and a male horse, on his ranch at Wardner in southeastern British Columbia. Mr. Atwood says the twins' major asset is that their legs are stronger than a mule's and they can handle heavier loads over rough terrain. Both hinnies are sterile females.

"In my opinion, however, there Is no concrete evidence it is justified in disease therapy or as a substitute for therapy." Dr. McClure, who is also a member of a special commit- tee set up by B.C. Health Min- ister Dennis Cocke to look into acupuncture, said that unfort- unately the acupuncture clinics that have attempted to operate in the province were on thera- peutic instead of analgesic toes.

FUR STORAGE TIME i FREE SPEEDY PICK-UP RESTYLING RELINING REPAIRING CLEANING AND GLAZING The LETHBRIDGE FURRIERS 514 3rd AVENUE SOUTH Phone 327-2209 By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Burfcan OTTAWA Summer on Par- liament Hill. The sun shines. Flowers, in dazzling colors of red, white, yellow and blue, give just about everyone a lift. And relatively carefree tourists flock through the grounds and centre block buildings. But up on the fourth" ilbof, facing south, where Progressive Conservative leader Robert Stanfield keeps his offices, sum- mer can hardly be bringing the kind of delights the Opposition leader just a handful of months ago had expected with, perhaps, justified optimism. For Mr. Stanfield and his party are in trouble. The heady days immediately following last Oct. 30th, when the Conservatives picked up 107 to 109 federal seats for the Lib- erals, are fast becoming a dis- tant memory. No longer can Mr. Stanfield be certain that it is just a matter of days or weeks before his party takes over the reins of government. Of course, Mr. Stanfield has been written off before. He was written off by many soon after the disastrous 1968 campaign when the Conservatives saw the 97 seats they had won in the 1965 federal election dwindle to just 72 as Trudeaumania swept the nation. During the next four in the early years after 1968 sugges- tions as well as some at- made to oust H) former Nova Scotia premier from his position. Somehow, though, he rode out the bad patches. Then came last October and a country so fed up with Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's administration that the Liberals won a majority of seats in only One province, Que- bec.

Pincher beautifies herself PINCHER CREEK (Special) The town of Pincher Creek will again be conducting its clean-up and beautifying cam- paign to May 31. Spring clean-up is dbsigned to assist householders and proper- ty owners get rid of an accu- mulation of refuse. The town crew will haul re- fuse free of charge but will not haul car bodies, auto parts, trees or building materials. Persons may malce their own arrangements for hauling this to the nuisance grounds. In the past clean-up scores of residents assisted in varioui ways to make it a success. the majority in eight provinces, tying with the Liberals in New Brunswick. Mr. Stanfield said he was ready to form a gov- ernment immediately. He vowed to bring down the Liberals at the earliest opportunity. He hasn't managed to do so. And latest polls conducted with the public generally and one for the Financial Times with middle and upper management, show the Conservatives under Mr. Stanfield are without doubt losing support. The Conservatives themselves are putting on a good face about it all. They don't believe the polls. It's just a temporary slump. Soon the Conservative momentum will pick up again. Inside the party, however, things aren't jquite that rosy. Frustrations are staring to build up, particularly with the new Conservatives elected for the first time last year. In guarded comments some have already whispered that on ar- riving in Ottawa they were ap- palled at the haphazardness of the Conservative organization." People keep telling us if you IMnk this is bad you should have seen it two or three years laments one new Tory MP who doesn't really care how much inprovement there has been in three years if the oper- ation is till way below par now. There are new, bright and ambitious Conservative MPs from the West. People like John F r a s e r (Vancouver South, Doug Roche (Edmonton Stratheona, Alta.) and Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre, Man.) who offer effec- tive criticism of the Trudeau- New Democratic Party alliance and government policies but, secretly at least, must be wor- ried about the situation in their own party. It's interesting to note that whether a federal election is held this year, next year or even latef Mr. Stanfield will al- most certainly lead his party for a third time into the battle. The PCs can hardly ditch him now. If a Conservative lead- ership convention was an- n o u n c e d tomorrow, Mr. Trudeau could simply announce an election the next day and the PCs would be going to the Ca- nadian people more or less leaderless, not knowing who would be party leader a week before election day or a week after. For the moment the Con- servatives appear to have been boxed into a corner. 1st PRIZE 20" PORTABLE COLOR TV WITH AUTOMATIC FINE TUNING PLUS ONE YEAR SERVICE CONTRACT INCLUDED PRIZE 5 SPEED BICYCLE PLUS IZES OF A TRANSISTOR RADIO Little John Discount is a new and exciting store now open in Lefhbridge at 326-6th St. S.
