Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tvetday, October 10, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HHAID 19 Harkness good for Tories though he isn't running CALGARY (CP) For nine I eleclions Iho vole-drawing of Douglas Harkness has meant Progressive Conservative vic: lories in Calgary Ccnlre. Bui Ihe minister of agricul- ture and national defence in the Diefenbaker government is not running this time. Five candidates, including one from the Western Canada Party and Ihe four major par- lies, are in the running but most of them concede it's a two-man race. Which two depends on the candidate expressing the opin- ion. Liberal Nick Taylor, who lost lo Mr. Harkness in 19G8 by 301 votes, said Ihe choice is tirely between himself and Con- servative Harvie Andre. The two agree I hey are in contenlion and lhat NDP candi- date David Jones is "totally out of it" although he may be a spoiler taking votes from ther. Publishers urged to adopt system EDMONTON of Canada Council grants ti publishers should be ctesignalec as payments to writers, say the league of Canadian poets The league's biennial conven tion approved a resolution ask ing the council to urge publish ers lo adopt such a system. More than 50 poets attendee the meeting at which Dougla Barhour of Edmonton wa elected chairman of the leaguupport. However, with the seal's long history of Conservative repre- sentation, Mr. Andre's party af- ilialion will make a grealer mpact than the Liberal ban- ner, Mr. Taylor says. The Western Canada Party, which has western economic regionalism and a firm stand to the political right as part of its platform, is represented by ?rank Collingham. Since the group lacked the re- quired 50 candidates by Oct. 1, the candidates will be lisled as indepen'denl on the ballot for with a blank in the space for party affiliation.

He came out of retr-ement at He says "I have a cbance, every candidate has a chance" but acknowledges he is being "beaten into the ground" by Mr. Taylor and Mr. Andre. Mr. Andre has gained respect from competitors with signs in day-glow orange on boulevards and lawns. The Conservative candidate, who like the NDP and Liberals is trying to visit each of the 000 constituency households, said the signs are to improve voter recognition.
