Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wadnndoy, November 1, 1972 LtlHBRIDtt HERALD 17 Is everyone in U.S. but McGovern wrong? ON PARADE Tanks of the Ground Self Defence Force drive through Tokyo's Mei- ji Park during 22nd anniversary celebratjorr of Japan's defence forces. Some riot policemen were mobilized to guard the parade while an estimated 800 leflist sing- ed rallies and demcnslrations, accusing the government of trying lo revive militarism. Trying to save coyotes EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government will con- tinue its program ol coyote con- trol without trying io wipe out the animal in the province, two cabinet, ministers assured the legislature Tuesday. Allan Warrack, minister of lands and forests, and Hugh Homer, minister of agriculture, were replying to questions by Bill Purdy, MLA for Stony Plain, a predominantly rural riding west of Edmonton. Mr. Purdy asked if the gov- ernment had received any Charm ignored PARIS (Reuler) The Cana- dian voters have ignored Prime Minister Trudeau's charm and dynamism and remembered only the country's high prices, rising unemployment and crushing taxes, the newspaper Le Monde says. In a front-page editorial, the newspaper says: "Once more the voters have proved that the prognostica- tions of the public opinion polls are wrong." "Mr. Trudeau's charm, dy- namism and double culture, which seemed so perfect for Canada and his clear-cut opin- ions, have counted for far less with the electors than the ad- vancing unemployment, price rises and crushing taxes. "Quebec is the only province that remained faithful to the Liberals. This result comes as a surprise considering the growth of the separatist move- ment. "Many of the electors un- doubtedly chose Trudeau, be- cause, despite their hostility to him and his policies, they pre- SEE THE LENS THAT DARKENS IN THE SUNLIGHT (VAR1GRAY) OPTICAL raucmrriON co. fer to have a Quebecois In power in Ottawa rather than an 'Englishman'. "The ambition of Mr. Trudeau, to form a unified na- tion around the same 'Canadian dream' has largely been foiled." The newspaper adds that "the contradiction between the Quebec vote and the Anglo- phone provinces vote cannot help but aggravate Canada's al- ready serious difficulties." Le Monde says the leader of the next government will have to "show flexibility particularly towards the provinces if he is to overcome the economic diffi- culties and find active public support without which a gov- ernment cannot govern." "Mr. Trudeau can hardly do it and that is why perhaps the electors ought to be asked to vote again and perhaps more clearly." Dies on way to hospital EUC POINT (CP) Ter- rance Wallace Peterson, 29, of EUt Point died on his way to hospital after receiving serious burns when the truck he was driving overturned in a ditch. The accident occurred when the truck overturned on a mun- icipal road and burst into flames about 12 miles north- east of Elk Point, 130 miles northeast of Edmonton. complaints from sheep breed- ers about controlling the wild dogs, which the Canad i a n Wildlife Service describes as an asset in some crop years because they keep the mice population down and thus save considerable grain. "The coyote control and gen- eral predator control problem as regards to agriculture in general and livestock in parti- cular is a difficult re- plied Dr. Warrack. we feel we are initia- ting some moves that can put forward greater control of this conflict." He agreed with Mr. Purdy that "cumulation of the coyote would be unhealthy for the bal- ance of nature" because they are a necessary part of the prairie ecological cycle. Dr. Homer said he had been in fairly close contact with most of the sheep people In Al- berta about the coyote prob- lem. we're stepping up the program in relation to predator control. We believe a balanced program can eliminate most of the coyote damage without eliminating the coyote." He said University of Wis- consin is operating a wildlife re- search station near Rochester, in north-central Alberta, and is doing research into coyote prob- lems. "Research so far suggests that better cleaning up of dead animals would substantially re- duce the coyote population in some of these Dr. Hor- ner said. A spokesman for the wildlife service In Edmonton said in a telephone interview some fann- ers who complain about coy- ote trouble have a legitimate problem. "But the problem often Is one of poor farm or livestock man- agement because when an ani- mal dies, it's often hauled off and dumped where coyotes have ready access to It."

As recently as several days ago he declared, as he has all along, that he will be elected president next Tuesday. The national polls say that as of now he hasn't got much of a trailing President Nixon by more than 20 per- centage points. McGovem strategists Insist the gap will narrow, as it tradi- tionally does in the final days before presidential' elections, reflecting new e nthusiasm which they say is already evi- dent In a recent upsurge in campaign 'contributions and other Indicators. They are left hoping that the pollsters are on the eve of their biggest miscalculation since they erroneously picked Re- publican Thomas Dewey to de- feat former president Harry Truman in 1S48. But after months of cam- paigning, poll-taking and free- wheeling commentary by the pundits, the phrase most often heard about this lifeless 47th race for the White House is "voter apathy." Nixon fears It because over- confidence among his followers could lead to a dangerously low voter turnout. McGovem is frustrated by it because, despite a fistful of heady Issues, he can't seem to MEATS Pricei effective Nov. 2-3r4 WESTMINSTER PLAZA 13th St. and 5th Ave. N. railrvt lh> right limit quantllitt.

McGovern, the green apple of the analogy, wouldn't have put It so crudely but to many the sign represented a succinct as- sessment of the choice McGovern wants the people la make. Although "rotten" Is not in the vocabulary of the mild- mannered McGovem, at least not with reference to the presi- dent, he has been calling the Nixon administration "the most corrupt" in U.S. history. GEORGE MCGOVERN still confident But the mood of the country, 13 assessed by most observers, is that the people do not want either green or rotten apples and in the absence of another choice are leaning toward the known-quantity of the Nixon ad- ministration. The feeling expressed by many who have been following the campaign with keen inter- est is that while Americans in general are not madly in love with Nixon, they are nervous about McGovern, whom Nixon forces have sought to paint as a "dangerous radical." McGovern's renewed con- fidence of late appears dated from a series of half-hour, paid television addresses he has given with remarkable success. As a follow-up, as much as a day in email contri- butions have been reported by his headquarters. He also is aware that Senator Hubert H. Humphrey, in his 1968 battle with Nixon, gained a remarkable 11 percentage points in the polls in the last week or so before the election. He is confident, he says, that many life-long Democrats, par- ticularly among the Irish, Ital- ian and Jewish voters, who are SF university shows surplus in operations VANCOUVER (CP) Simon TVaser University's operating budget for the fiscal year end- ed March 31 showed a surplus of university bursar Donald Ross announced today. The university had a deficit in capital expenditures for the year of However, Mr. Ross said, capital expenditures are budgetted over a period of more than one year, with any deficits being made up insub- sequent years. "The university Is not in a borrowing he said. Indicated in the polls ea turning to Nixon, will return to the lew by election day. But despite McGovern's pro- fessed confidence, the of his followers in the light of current realities Is often and embarrassingly illustrated In slip of the tongue. Senator Edmund S. Muslde of Maine, in Pennsylvania recently, praised McGovern'i campaign "against hopeleu odds." And at another stop, a minor local politician, pledged In In- troducing McGovem that "wi will work for you right through to the bitter end."
