Telephone 328-9731 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD By golly! They've done il again! Just like 1930! This election was just like the one in 1930 when R. B. Bennett whipped William Lyon Mackenzie Kingl A clear majority for the Conservatives I Here is the Pot-Hole Coulee Computer's election analysis, with valid, historical comparisons ev- erything Pot-Luck readers have been breathlessly awaiting. Don't let those TV comparison-makers lead you astray. There's nothing worse in politics than a faulty comparison. The Hon. Bob Stanfield, underwear and tear, is ready to form a government. And all the TV boys comparing this election to the fading memory of Louis St. Laurent being de- voted. Ha, ha, it is to laugh! Go back into history when you make compari- sons, boys, and the farther back you go the fur- ther from the present you get. In this respect, note the great similarity between this election and the one ol July 27, 1930. The late Dr. J. S. Stewart, Gen. Stewart as we remember him now, took the lead of about 358 votes over the late A. G. Baalim. There were nine polls in the city proper and votes cast. In this election Ken Hurlburt received votes, more than Andy Russell. Note the similarity. Remarkable, isn't it? Back in 1930, not so long ago really when you skip the 1940s and 50s, with the exception of the Sample rooms and Miners' hall, Dr. Stewart headed the count in every poll. Just look at the 1930 figures out in the remember that T. 0. King was in the running too. Note the similarity, Mr. King for the UFA and Keith Hancock for the Social Credit Party. Remark- able, isn't it? Anyways, out in the sticks, here's the way it went: (Baalim, King and Clarinda, 3, 14 and 6; One-Fourteen, 23, 24 and 16; Coutts, 42, 14 and 81; One-Sbtteen, 0, 7 and 4; and so on. Now comparing that to the 1972 vote, we find: (Hancock, Hal Hoffman, Hurlburt and Sun- dial, 1, 5, 40 and 6; Ban-hill, 3, 7, 104 and 15; Spring Ridge, 3, 3, 122 and 10; and So On, 3, 2, 119, and 12. See how we can learn from history? All these little places are still little. In fact some of them have disappeared! Others are still disappearing! So there really is progress! Let's pretend Mr. Stanfield won and get on with it! The 1972 lead: "The Progressive Conserva- tive party won Canada's 30th federal election today- subject to some likely out the gov- erning Liberals 109 seats to 108." And the almost identical 1930 situation: "TORON- TO, Ont, July 28 At p m., eastern standard time, the Canadian Press reports the election of 213 members put of 245, distributed by parties as follows: Conservatives, 123, Liberals, 74, United Farmers of Alberta, 9, Progressive, 1, Labor, 2, Liberal-Progres- sive, 2, and Independents, 2." So it's clear that we have remarkably fewer parties in this election. And the Hon. R. B. Bennett did a lot more than we give him credit for! What happened to the Liberal-Progressives? Now that's the answer. Mr. Bob Stanfield, sir, re- name your remarkable party'. And a special goodnight lo anybody willing to compare things.
