Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, 1970 Nova Scotia Candidates Busy Firing Broadsides HALIFAX (CP) Less .than a iveek remains in the Nova Scotia election campaign ami the two major party leaders have begun firing broadsides. Premier G. I. (Ike) S'mith, 61, successor to Robert Stanfield and seeking his first election victory Oct. 13 as Progressive PREMIER SMITH Takes Swing Conservative parly leader, took his first swing at the Liberals last week. Mr. Smith called the Liberal platform "something borrowed, something blue, something vague and nothing new." Later the premier, noting Lib- eral Leader Gerald Regan's in- tention to spend much of the remaining time in the campaign explaining the Liberal plaftorm, said: Studded Tires Issue Aired MONTREAL (CP) The case for and againsfc studded tires stole the limelight at the annual convention of the Cana- dian Good Boads Association The Issue was debated be- tween Ontario highway re- searchers and manufacturers of tire studs as the convention en- tered its second day. Ontario announced a ban on itudded tires last month when studies sBowed they were re- sponsible for excessive damage to paved roads. The ban, effective April SO, 1971, will also apply to out-of- province vehicles travelling on Ontario highways. Peter Smith, head of the re- search and transportation sys- tems branch of the Ontario De- partment of Highways used col- or slides to illustrate wear on paved and concrete roads caused by studded tires. In some instances, roads were completely worn to the earth base under the pavement. "We got no measurable wear on such roads in the summer when normal, unstudded tires are he told delegates. Tom Baldock, vice president of the Tire Stud Manufacturers Institute, asked whether the govern m e n t researchers had been able to isolate wear caus- ed by studs and that caused by normal traffic, salt and sand abrasion and snow tires, Mr. Smith said studies con- ducted three years ago before the introduction tire studs re- vealed little surface wear on certain highways during the i winter. i "Ninety per cent of the wear on such highways during the winter of 1969-70 can be attribu- ted to studded he said. 'There is no 0113 in Nova Sco- tia who has so much explaining to do." Mr. Smith's criticism of Die Liberals continued through four straight major addresses until Mr. Regan struck back Tuesday night by accusing the Conserva- tives of "desperatelv trying to distort our program." Education has been the cam-' i-t'prt issue, with the Liberals promising a royal com- s with the province eventually as- suming Hie full financial bur den. Education costs now arc shared with municipalities. Mr. Smith said a royal com- mission was not needed to de- termine that money to finance education under Mr. Regan'; proposal would come from the taxpayers. While Mr. Smith and Mr. Regan travel hundreds of miles a day on the campaign trail, NDP Leader Jeremy Akerman is staying close to his home rid- ing in industrial Cape Breton. Observers see Mr. Akerman's election bid in Cape 3reton Bast, held no.w by vet- eran Conservative N. Layton Fergusson, as one of the hard- est fought in the province. Another tough fight is being waged in Halifax Nesdham where Mr. Regan is seeking personal re-election following a 102-vote victory in 1967. He is opposed by Conservative David MacKeen, a Halifax alderman who has fought for improve- ments for the city's north end. The Liberals are working hard to defeat Attorney-General R. A. Donahoe in Halifax Corn- Mr. Donahoe, in the cab- inet since the Conservative take-over in 1956 after 23 years of Liberal rule, is opposed by Halifax lawyer George Mitchell. The Conservatives are seek- ing their fifth straight election victory. Under Mr. Stanfield, the PCs won increased majori- ties in 1960, 1963 and 1967 when they took 40 of the 46 legislature seats and the Liberals six. Later in 19C7, Mr. Stanfield won the national PC leadership, and was succeeded by Mr. Smith. In five byetections since the 1967 general election, the PCs won four, including a gain from the Liberals, to make house standing at dissolution PCs 41, Liberals five. Both major parlies have full slates of 46 candidates. The NDP, which had no seats in the last two legislatures, is offering 23. Milk Rashes. Increase TORONTO (CP) Children with skin rashes caused by an allergy to milk are turning up in doctors' offices here at least five times as often as a few years ago, a Scarborough doctor said Monday. Dr. Ray LaForest, chief ol pe- diatrics at Scarborough General Hospital, made the comment to doctors attending the annual meeting of the Ontario chapter of the College of Family Physi- cians of Canada. Dr. LaForest blamed the rashes on chemicals used in fer- tilizers and pesticides which mix with cattle fodder and eventually find their way into the milk. WANT CASH OR HOUSE ST. LOUIS (AP) The Inter- nal Revenue Service filed art tax lien against the suburban home of St. Louis Cardinals' second baseman Jul- ian Javier. Javier is accused of failing to pay federal income tax for 1961 and 1963 through 1969. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. ALL THIS WEEK!
