Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ November 6, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 19 Parliamentary Nolvhook 'faber clllb Jack Horner has -i; his suns loaded election WUTHS By STEWART MacLEOI) OTTAWA In the last three weeks, since the farm stabilization bill was dropped, Jack Homer (PC- Crowfool) has been sitting quietly in his seat, a model of parliamentary decorum. The government might have the mistaken impression that Hie tough-talking cowpuncher has mellowed. Fat chance. In the next week or so, the government's tax legislation will progress to the point where it affects farming, and Jack Homer is going lo be ready. So far he has said little about the over-all legislation. "That's because you can't fight best on the open the idea is to get the battle into familiar topography." In other words, head them off at the pass. HAS GUNS LOADED Jack Homer has his guns loaded. "I he says, "that Finance Minister E. J. Benson is going to have to turn his back lo the wind just a bit." When Mr. Horner lakes his battle stance, even his strong- est critics agree he is a diffi- cult opponent to dislodge. When he begins plowing out the the nice- ties of English high-pilched indignation, or anger, no one has any doubt about his position. Some of his more urbane political critics dismiss the School bill loaded with loopholes an election Pre- mier W. A. C. Bennett told an enthusiastic, cheering crowd ol 500 Friday at the 19lh annual convention of the Social Credit League of British Columbia. Mr. Bennett listed at length the accomplishments ef his gov- ernment since it came to power in 1952, and was interrupted several times by applause and table-thumping, especially when he told them "be prepared, be prepared" for an election.

Michael mm j uun i .1. .L Pitfield. one of Prime Minister very detrimental to the agricul- Trudeau's closest, confidants, tural industrv. r-nd farmers j plans to leave Ottawa nes' just starting to be aware of it.' There are several aspects of Ihe legislation which Mr. HOT- t nor says will hurt, small farm- ers who don't want to go through the process, of incorpo- rating their business. ''I'll be talking about this." And this likely means tough i talking. Since he came here in 19SS. he has seldom opposed j anything in half-way measures. While the Conservatives were j in power, he took his fights to segregation, but it emerged remarkable success in gettin loaded with amendments that could make the job tougher. The House approved Presi- dent Nixon's request for bil- lion to help schools desegregate but clamped harsh restrictions' on the use of buses lo accom- plish the goal. Both the do-segregation mea- sure and the "anti-busing" amendments were added to a multi-billion dollar higher edu- cation bill, and the whole pack- age now is beaded for a House Senate conference to work out a compromise. The vote on passage of the bill was 332 to 38. The Senate has passed a de- segregation bill without any busing restrictions, and civil rights leaders hope to soften the House provisions. There are three of them, one banning expenditure of any fed- era funds on busing, another preventing th federal govrn- ment from requiring a state to use its own funds for busing, and the third delaying Ihe effec- tive date of court-ordered bus- ing plans until all appeals have been exhausted. the cabinet to take look at things. second LIABILITY 9 BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSS! i EK AGENCIES ITD.
