Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE October Stanfield wants polls banned TORONTO (CP) Robert Stanfield, suggesting that a bandwagon effect propelled the Liberals to a majority vic- tory July 8, called Friday for a ban on public opinion polls during election cam- paigns. The Progressive Conservative leader, in a speech prepared for a party youth federation meeting, said the outcome of the election appeared to produce even greater support for the Liberals. Subse- quent polls showed Liberal popularity above what it was on election day. "This raises a vital question. If election results can produce a bandwagon effect, could not polls themselves, published dur- ing a campaign, produce a bandwagon Mr. Stanfield said his comments should not be taken as sour grapes. There is enough doubt about the effect of polls to warrant initiative, he said. Trans-Canada road closed VICTORIA (CP) Highways department of- ficials Friday imposed a se- cond daily closure on the Fraser Canyon stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway.

NEW LAW FACULTY READY BY 1976 EDMONTON (CP) A law faculty at the University of Calgary will be in operation by the fall of 1976, Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster said Friday. Mr. Foster, in a news release, said the "long-debated faculty previously rejected by the universities commis- sion "will offer an interdisciplinary approach different from that of existing programs. "Primary benefits of the proposed interdisciplinary law program relate to supplying quality legal services responsi- ble to a variety of social needs beyond conventional law prac- tice." Mr. Foster said graduates should emerge with additional training to allow them to provide preventive counsel design- ed to reduce conflicts with the legal system and increase both the individual's and the system's "responsiveness to social change." The Calgary bar association has raised pledges of 000 for a law library and the City of Calgary has agreed to contribute an equal sum, Mr. Foster said, adding that the province will match the combined amount with a grant "In addition... the provincial government has allocated a operating grant to be transferred to the university's 1974-75 institutional budget and prospective and conditional grants for the next four years totalling and respectively." West highway ministers charge discrimination BANFF (CP) A call for a meeting of all ministers responsible for transportation in western Canada to discuss discrimination emerged Fri- day after Highways, ministers from the four Western provinces ended a two-day meeting Friday. The ministers, in a prepared statement, said the meeting should discuss dis- criminatory transportation policies of the federal government" which restrict economic and social de- velopment in the West and re- view the "options available to western Canada in view of this inequity." The four ministers also call- ed for the incorporation of financial commitments related directly to program objectives and specific provin- cial needs in agreements between the provinces and Ot- tawa. They said these com- mitments should include methods for adjustments in view of changing circum- stances. "Previous joint programs tend to be financed and re- stricted by fixed dollar alloca- tions not necessarily related to the objectives and schedules of the the statement said. Clarence Copithorne of Al- berta was chairman of the conference attended by Saskatchewan Highways Minister Eiling Kramer, Manitoba's Peter Burtniak, and British Columbia's Graham Lea. As well, they called for an education program to encour- age seat belt use and referred the question of compulsory seat belt use to a conference of motor vehicle branch ad- ministrators scheduled for Winnipeg Oct. 17-18. The next joint meeting of the western highways ministers will be held at Vic- toria in 1975. CRASH CLAIMS SIX AUSTIN. Minn.

The Montreal doctor, how- ever, can still succeed in ef- forts to wipe out his convic- tion if the high court accepts other defences put to the nine judges. One of these defences is the abortion he admitted performing in August, 1973, was necessary for the health of the mother. In a surprise move Friday, the Supreme Court, after hearing all of the arguments by the Morgentaler lawyers, adjourned for about five minutes. When it returned Chief Justice Bora Laskin said: "We are all of the opinion that no case has been made out on the constitutionality of section 251 (the abortion sec- tion) of the Criminal Code and the Bill of Rights." Speaking for the full court, the chief justice also dismiss- ed arguments that Quebec Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quette acted improperly in making the charges against Dr. Morgentaler. Chief defence lawyer Claude Sheppard said he remained confident that the court will accept other arguments he has advanced over the last two days and that Dr Morgentaler will be ac- quitted. He faces an 18-month jail sentence if" his conviction stands. THE LETHBRIDGE SYMPHONY CHORUS Director: MR.
