The next session of the legis- lature will see the Social Credit j in opposition for the first time In its history. It governed for 36 years before being deposed by Peter Lougheed's Conserva- tives in the Aug. 30 election. Following a day-long caucus, Mr. Strom told a neus confer- ence that he was surprised at the appointment of 23 cabinet ministers. During tbe election campaign, lit was elected he "would exit the fat on! of the Mr. Sirom said. "Then UK first move he mail? xvas to increase the of his cabinet from 17 to 22. This doesn't mean just an increase of five people it means that these fivo cabinet ministers would have to be provided with office space, secretaries, and all the facilities that go witli it." Mr. Speaker criticized the 9.4 per cent salary increase settle- ment made with Alberta's cor- rection officers. The prison of- ficers had walked off their jobs following a dispute with the So- cial Credit government just prior to the election, but went back to work and carried through negotiations with the new government following the election. The Social Credit government had set a giu-leline of six per cent for salary negotiations with civil servants, Mr. Speaker said. "The- settlement raises two basic questions. First of all, will the Progressive Conservative government re-negotiate with the civil servaits that were re- sponsible and did not walk out. "And secondly, tte ment must tell the people how they are going lo raise the money for this jiew are, whether it's going to be a sales tax or some other new tax."

(AP) The violent deaths in Cali- fornia prisons during (he last 20 monlhs are clear evidence of a "revolutionary attack" on the system, slate penal officials have charged in a lengthy re- port. James Hall, state board p[ corrections chairman, says in the report issued Friday the attack "is being encouraged by some members of organiza- tions such as the National Law- yers Guild, the underground press and other misguided indi- viduals." Tlie report intersperses ac- counts of prison incidents with references to such well-known supporters of prison cases as actress Jane Fonda and radical student and faculty campus leaders. The "assault by revolution- aries" started, the report says, ary settlement will cost the government an additional 000 to a year. James Henderson, former minister of the environment, also criticized the new environ- !iis about-face over strip-mining operations at Canmore. "Either he was completely ignorant of what was being done there in tne past or his statement during tlw campaign calling for abandonment of min- ing operations at Canmore was based strictly on political ex- pediency." JI3HE REALISTIC Mr. Yurko's more recent com- ments, that the mine will have to remain open, are more real- istic, Mr. Henderson said. Mr. Strom also told a news conference that he has assigned (Lill'lStillclS each of his 25 Social Credit op- position members specific du- ties so they can "fill a ruc'i'e meaningful role." Former ministers under Mr. Strom were named responsible mainly for areas they dealt with previously. Mr. Henderson (Wetaskiwin) was made finan- cial critic, however. Gordon Taylor (Drumheller) is responsblc for highways and transport; Robert Clark (Okls- Didsbury) for education; Mr. Speaker (Little Bow) for health and social development: Henry Ruslc (Waimvright) for land's and forests: Alberta Ludwig (Calgary-Mountain View) for attorney-general's office; and former speaker Art Dixon (Cal- gary Millican) for telephones. after a lover officer killed three convicts in January, 1970, by firing into the yard to break up a gang fight ai Soledad prison, 11 miles south of San Francisco.
