Robert Clark charisma will wear off By RON CALDWBLL Herald Staff Writer The honeymoon is over for the Lougheed government Alberta, according to the most recently declared candidate for the leadership of the provincial Social Credit party. Robert Clark made the com- ment during a brief press con- ference to announce his candi- dacy at Kenyon Field Airport Friday afternoon before taking off for Medicine Hat. Mr. Clark said the Progress- ive Conservatives caught the imagination of the people in trie last election by television saturation and a certain amount of charisma. "We all saw what happened in the federal election when the glow wore he said. Before continuing on an air- borne hopscotch routine which covered five cities in one day, Mr. Clark promised to continue to ejqpose the "bungling, incom- petence and patronage" of the present government. "We are beginning to see open results of political patron- age and he said. "Al- bertans are not used to these kind of shennanigans in gov- ernment." He said the Lougheed govern- ment has hired an additional civil servants since it took MOVING? AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES office ami "this is hardly cut- ting the fat." Mr. Clark, 33-year-old form- er minister of education, said the government's handling of the Worth Report "has been a mess." He said the fact that Dr. Walt- er Worth was hired as deputy minister of advanced education shortly after the report was re- leased proves the government is not interested in what the public thinks of the document. "It was a shotgun marriage carried out with indecent he said. The 12-year veteran of the legislature, now seen by many as the front-runner in the lead- ership race, said if the cabinet position of Jim Foster, minister of advanced education, is not in jeopardy, "it should be." Commenting on the idea of a sales tax in Alberta, Mr. Clark said he sees no need for imple- mentation of a sales tax but it may be necessary if the gov- ernment continues its present trends. Mr. Clark is the third can- didate to announce he's going after the leadership now held by former premier Harry Strom. Werner Schmidt, academic vice-president of the Leth- bridge Community College, and Gordon Taylor, former minister of highways, are the other de- clared contenders.

Plione 328-4095 UofL could lose on short program The University of Lethbridge would stand to lose about 000 a year if the Alberta Uni- versities Commission pushes through its proposal tor an op- tional three-year degree pro- gram. Dr. Bill Beckel, president of the U of L, made that assess- ment during a press conference Friday following a meeting with the universities commis- sion earlier this week. "They are in a position to apply financial he said, "but I don't believe they will." The commission does not have the power to order a uni- versity to institute a shorter degree program that is a 30- course program in addition to the present 40-course program it does have the author- ity to withhold provincial fi- nancing to support the fourth year of the present program. Dr. A. M. Kristjanson, aca- demic planning officer with the commission, said Friday that the commission will decide in December or January on whether it will press the U of L to in s t i t u t e the shorten- ed degree program. If the commission decides in favor, it will be almost auto- matic since most universities cannot afford to go through a year williout funds to support its fourth year students. However, Dr. Beckel express- ed optimism that the U of L will not be faced with this ultimatum. "The universities commission has been susceptible to good ar- gument before and we have put forth a good argument against a shorter degree program for the U of said Dr. Beckel.

"I don't think Dr. Worth's po- sition on the commission will create any problems in this he said. Dr. Beckel stated one week ago that he felt most students at the U of. L preferred a 40- course degree program over a 30-course program. The U of L student newspa- per, The Meliorist, says a stu- dent survey conducted over a few hours gathered 140 signa- tures favoring a shorter degree program.
