Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, November 21, 1974 Governors try to shore up solidarity By BHt'CE LEVKTT WASHINGTON (CP) Democratic state governors, seldom spotlighted as a strong, cogent force, are emerging us a muscular fac- tion dedicated to shoring up party solidarity. Meeting at Hilton Head. S.C., in their first conference since the Nov. 5 elec- left Democratic governors in charge of 37 of the 50 showed a preoccupation with party un- ity and a bold determination to play a leading role in solidifying it. Even with some of their im- poriant new members governors-elect Ed- mund (Jerrv) Brown of California and Ella of Connecticut the Democratic- governors showed a deter- mination to speak in a strong collective voice, especially on internal affairs. They passed a sweeping eco- nomic resolution calling for wage and price controls, tax cuts for the poor, a reduction in oil company profits and some mandatory oil conserva- tion measures. Then they took the advice of a panel of experts and called for a six-month observation period on the controls. They endorsed, u n- animously. a compromise on permanent party anti- discrimination rules and, in doing so. closed ranks against pressure from powerful labor allies. George Meany, boss of the AKL-C10. sent three top aides" to the conference to ask the governors to propose a flat prohibition against racial and other quotas in party ac- tivities. The governors resisted, standing by the compromise language which called for ac- tion at all levels to involve racial minorities, women, In- dians and youth in the selec- tion of delegates to next month's party convention in Kansas City. The rules prohibit only "mandatory quotas." In effect, the governors told the labor leaders "no more wrangling over wording." .John Gilligan. defeated as governor of Ohio, spoke for many governors when he said: "If we go to Kansas City and tear ourselves to shreds before a national television audience over esoteric language no one understands, we are going to demonstrate our unlitness for leadership." Ironically, it was a Republi- can Nix- who paved the way for the new state-level muscle. In a move to shore up Re- publican grass-roots power, Nixon introduced revenue sharing which turned over to the governors new power and funds to initiate programs previously the province of the federal government. With the new power within the party, the governors are hoping to be in a position to put their stamp on whoever wins the Democratic nomina- tion for president in 1976. Indeed, for the first time in more than 20 years, the candi- date may come from their own ranks. Gov. Jimmy Carter of Geor- gia is reported planning a mid- December announcement that he's available; Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, who ran once as a conservative, is pon- dering another try under his traditional democratic banner. Simpsons-Sears Ltd.

The board approved late last year, by a narrow margin, pay increase to from and found strong public opposition. The chief propo- nent of the increase, the then board chairman Harald Gunderson, lost his seat in the civic election last month. Trustee Bill Knight said the trustees "have resolved to deal with the matter in public as opposed to hashing it over in closed doors." Last year, the pay increase was presented to the public as fait accompli. John Curran, the new board chairman, was the chief oppo- nent to the pay increase and refused to get the increase himself. It is expected that the trustees will make a decision on their pay at an open board meeting Nov. 26. Commuter flights studied FORT McMURRAY (CP) The provincial government is apparently studying the feasibility of daily commuter flights for oil sands workers from Edmonton and other Alberta centres, says Graeme Milne, director of Contact Airways Ltd.
