Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Se-THC LETHBRIDOE HERALD-Thurtdty, Four-year-old Kirt giant Jack-o'-Lantern on a kin is made of syrofoam. Good grief! Hineline and his dog are dwarfed by the garden Jot in Toronto. The 12-foot high pump- question why would anyone want to become MP? LONDON (AP) All over Britain a record politi- cians are applying to the elec- torate in today's general elec- tion for a job notorious for poor pay, long hours, public ingratitude, broken marriages and a high suicide rate. All 635 seats in the House of Commons are vacant, in itself an electoral illusion since that handsome Gothic chamber, rebuilt after a 1941 German air raid, only has sitting room for 437 members, lite rest have to stand behind the back benches or doze in the corri- dors during a debate. Aside from the fact that one aspirant will become the next prime minister and live at 10 Downing Street, the question hovers, as it does at every general election: Why would anyone want to become a member of Parliament? Prior to 1912, MPs weren't paid. A decade ago, some still MAKELETHBRIDGEA MODEL CITY FOR ITS CREATIVE APPROACHES TO URBAN LIVING BASED ON CITIZEN INPUT AND PEOPLE VALUES ELECT TO COUNCIL A MAN OF ACTION ON OCTOBER 18 VOTE TWIN.

An ordinary back bencher gets a salary of plus expenses of for secre- tarial services, to main- tain a London residence and free first-class train travel back to his constituency. The winners also rate free post- age, free telephones and 10 free trips'a year to London for the wife or husband. Chances are the new MP won't get a desk, much less an office to himself. The House only has 172 single rooms, 49 doubles, 11 triple rooms and, scattered about the corridors, 29 other spare desks. But there is a swimming pool, an excellent library a restaurant, a cafeteria, sev- eral bars and smoking rooms. A recent survey of the Com- mons showed that more than one-third of the members de- voted all their time to being anMP. Anyone with a half-dozen friends for sponsors and a deposit can.run for Par- liament. If a candidate fails to get one-eighth of the vote in his area, he loses the deposit. But the real reason that peo- ple run Edmund Burke noted long power. MPs, as Nesta Wyn Ellis noted in her recent book, Dear Elector, the Truth about MPs, are rarely turned down for charge accounts and credit cards and have endless oppor- tunities for amorous adven- ture. is a standing whisky Canadian heritage. Taste our classic example. HERITAGE arid in Canada Indians gain access to federal cabinet OTTAWA (CP) George Manuel, president of the Na- tional Indian Brotherhood, gave credit Wednesday to the Native People's Caravan "for breaking through the gatekeeper's role played by the civil service and giving us direct access to the cabinet." "It looks like we made a breakthrough and I think we can credit to a large degree the grassroots people saying 'enough, Mr. Manuel told reporters after the brotherhood executive met for more than 90 minutes with a special cabinet com- mittee headed by Indian Af- fairs Minister Judd Buchanan. From that meeting came an agreement that the broth- erhood, voice of Canada's 000 registered Indians, must have frequent access to cabinet to talk over problems rather than bring them to the public service. Mr. Manuel said the frustra- tion of Indian communities in not getting their message across to the public service led to the violent demonstra- tion of the Native People's Caravan on Parliament Hill Sept. 30. The brotherhood president said the cabinet committee was told that the elected In- dian leaders feel the same frustration and responded to it by agreeing to frequent and regular meetings with the brotherhood executive. "It's top bad that this kind of situation has to happen before cabinet Mr. Manuel said referring to the violence on Parliament Hill. Both Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Manuel said there was no dis- cussion of earlier Indian de- mands for an independent in- vestigation of the demonstra- tion. However Mr. Manuel told reporters he was concerned about the response of the RCMP and that the Mounties riot squad, was used for the first time during that demonstration. He said the brotherhood, now holding a special three- day executive meeting, is con- sidering holding its own investigation into the, demonstration. It would, include calling witnesses at, sessions open to the public, said Mr. Manuel. Mr. Buchanan, main spokes- man for the government side, also spoke of the "sense of frustration felt by the Indians from procedures they must go through to get to the federal government." The minister said the cabinet and the National In- dian Brotherhood would work together so Indians would have more input in decisions affecting their lives. Prime Minister Trudeau did not attend the meeting. With Mr. Buchanan were Health Minister Marc Lalonde, Justice Minister Otto Lang, Postmaster-General Bryce Mackasey, State Secretary Hugh Faulkner and Treasury Board President Jean Chretien. Mr. Manuel said Indians want to strengthen their relationship with the federal government and not weaken or destroy it. There were reports inde- pendent from the Indian af- fairs department that less than 100 of the original 200 caravan group remain in Ot- tawa. A number of caravan mem- bers have asked the Indian fairs department for money to go home. Sears Digi-matic MR-10 with square root, reciprocal keys and full memory, too!
