Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE UTHBRIDOE HERALD Saturday, November 50, 1971 GAG RULE IMPOSED Dixie Houser, a member of the pep iquad at W. T. White High School In Dallas, had to boost her team Friday without making a peep, Her choir director ordered the taped mouth to save Dixie's voice for better things, like the interscholastic League vocal competition. Maybe Dixie's voice teacher is sorry now, the White footballers were defeated by Carter High in the city championship, 24-14. Strom: Pendulum will swing back' CALGAKY (CP) The Al- berta Social Credit Party must demonstrate that it is alive, healthy and preparinK for the future, leader Harry Strom said Friday night, lie told delegates to the Al- berta Social Credit League's an- nual convention the party has to take a stand at the meeting to restore individual responsi- bility, especially among young "We must unreservedly com- mit ourselves to the Social Credit principles, based on the theoretical and philosophical foundation and firmly founded on Christian ideals. "We must create the climate where the individual has the financial capacity and the legis- lative rights to exercise individ- ual choice as a responsible citi- zen." Mr. Strom, former Alberta premier before the party's de- feat to the Progressive Conser- vatives in the Aug. 30 provin- cial election, was given a stand- ing ovation from the 550 dele- gates during an afternoon speech which opened the two- day convention. At the party's banquet Friday night, he recommended the es- tablishment of "policy review committees" of elected MLAs to study several subjects on which policy decisions are planned. "These committees would en- courage the greatest possible dogreo of public involvement in their review and would re- port back to our caucus and also to a policy convention next spring." Twenty-four of 25 Social Cred- it MLAs approved formation of the committees at a caucus meeting Thursday. Mr. Strom, 58, who became Social Credit leader in Decem- ber, 1968, after Premier E. C. Manning stepped down, said there are three stages In the party's approach to future ac- tion: The policy review com- mittees must get under way at once "to establish our position as distinct and different from any existing party." Secondly, a critical appraisal of the "total leadership" of the >arty has to be made. Thirdly, the party must agree on policy and a program of im- jlementation, and also estab- ish strategy for contesting the next provincial election. He said elections are not won iy the vote of "hardcore" sup- porters, but by the vote of the so-called uncommitted. "These are the people we 'ailed to reach in large enough lumbers to be successful in the >rovincial election." Image-building has become a recent factor in political cam- jaigning, he said, adding there no doubt that it influences the public thinking. But I feel confident that the pendulum will swing back to real values." He said the loss to the Con- servatives could be viewed in a positive way. "The loss should be seen as a stepping stone to new growth and new progress. A loss ex- poses weaknesses and may re- veal lack of will to win." It could also be viewed "as a he said, which may be able to jolt the party into rec- ognizing that it was out of touch with people.
