Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, October 13, 1970 Tuesday To Thursday Club: For Long Weekend MPs rAWA (CP) The real Tuesdays, Wednesdays and ister Tnideau the club appeared The other 52 members of his said, one of the lowest turn-outs I tnlrl OTTAWA (CP) The real test of strength for the Tues- day-to-Thursday club came last week when, on Friday, all four party leaders launched the new session of Parliament with their kick-off speeches. The club won, hands down. The club, it should be ex- plained, is uncharted, incorpo- rated and officially unorgan- ized. Por years, almost since Confederation, it has met on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the Common chamber. Non-members also meet on Mondays and Fridays. All MPs who spend long week- ends in their ridings, and miss the Friday and Monday sittings of the House, are automatically members of the club. Virtually every prime minister since Con- federation has tried to break it up, without success. For a time under Prime Min- ister Tnideau the club to be on its way out as MPs stayed at their desks through the Friday and Monday sittings. But when all party leaders spoke L e a d e r s! Day is traditionally one for full strength of the club was fully evident. When Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield rose to speak in the throne speech debate he was applauded ky 20 supporters. The other 52 members of his party were absent. Only 18 of the 152 Liberal MPs were in their seats, along with seven of the 23 New Democrats and four of the 13 Creditiste MPs. And a few hours later when Mr. Trudeau entered the de- bate, there were 46 Liberals, nine Conservatives, 10 NDP members and six Creditiste MPs. It was, veteran observers said, one of the lowest turn-outs in memory for Leaders' Day. On this particular occasion, some MPs explained, the Tues- day-to-Thursday club was given a boost by the fact that Monday is a holiday and many members returned to their ridings early to take advantage of the long weekend and clean up outstand- ing constituency affairs before moving Into Ottawa for the new session. KNUCKLES RAPPED But the MPs who were fc Ot- tawa were predicting that the various party caucuses would hear more about this next week when they meet. None of the leaders enjoys speaking to empty seats. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker took firm action against the club in 1958 when he told the 208-mcmber Conserva- tive caucus that Monday and Friday attendance must be maintained. Toward Bie end of his regime the club regained its strength, except on thosn days when votes were expected. Lester Pearson, when he be- came prime minister in took similar action, aided by the argument that a minority gov- ernment needed all its members whenever the House was sittirg. But even during this period the club continued to exist, although wih fewer members. Trudeau laid down the law about the attendance when 16 assumed offics, and he re- peated it during a caucus this summer. "After Friday's attendance" said one Liberal MP. "we'll lear more about it."

R.K. Bennett, former head livestock production for the fa eral department of agricultur said politicians "are giving con sumers ammunition too tt government has promised mm protection for the consumer. Although meat takes a larg share of each dollar spent o groceries, most housewives have little appreciation of wha it costs to produce meat. "Many families have their pa cheque committed before it earned because of their credi purchases. "When meat prices go up, thl is the first thing housewives nc- tice." Mr. Bennett, speaking to the convention through a telephon arrangement from Ottawa be- cause he was unable to atten in person, said meat subst tales "were waiting in the wing if prices go higher at the coi sumer level." He suggested that cattleme allow reasonable imports o beef to keep domesUa prices acceptable. Ross Mitchell, president of thv Canadian Cattlemen's Associa tion, told the convention t h a while the producer price of bee peaked in the summer of 196 and has since fallen, retai prices have not declined muci in comparison. "Consumers have the right to know the reason for the widen ing spread between wholesale We shall overtake. and retail prices and producer prices." While Canadian producers were agreeable to imports of Australian and New Zealand beef up to a limit of five per cent of domestic consumption, imports to the end of July were 12.5 per cent of consumption. "We agree there is a place for low grade lean beef im- ports but we are finding in these shipments some of the best-grade beef which can be produced at half the price of our good grain-fed beef. And that is unfair competition."

RADIO LISTINGS Times Raps Demands Of Kidnappers LONDON (CP) The Times says the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross in Mont- real "demonstrates the com- plete intellectual sterility of the JTTOnt de Liberation dti Quebec." It says in an editorial: "To. threaten to kill a per- fectly innocent man, not Cana- dian but British, unless a num- of postmen are given their jobs back and prisoners are set 'ree is as stupid politically as it is indefensible morally. "To demand a ransom at the same time is to reduce the ause of the French-Canadians to the level of gangsterism. "The difference between the Canadian situation and that in the Middle East and Latin America is that, however wrong the tactics may be both morally and tactically, the South Ameri- cans and Palestinians have a eal grievance."

Especially if the small car hasn't got the power to pass him on a two-lane highway. Introducing the Toyota Corolla 1200 with We've added 13 more horsepower to an already powerful engine, giving us a grand total of 73. All the power and speed you need to overtake the biggest rigs is there. Top speed is over 90 mph, cruising speed is a smooth 75, and you still get up to 35 miles to the gallon. The extra horsepower is another good reason Corolla is considered to be the best all-around small car around. But can the Corolla handle all that power? You bet your bug it can. We realize that a car that can go has to Also available in Station Wagon be able to stop. For that, the Corolla has finned brakes and a dual circuit system. Inside it hasn't changed a bit. Everything is standard except the radio and the fully automatic transmission. It cpmes with reclining bucket seats, a three speed heater, heavy duty 60 amp battery, a 1.3 horsepower starter motor, and white walls. The trunk is spacious for a small car, safety features are everywhere, and the' price tag speaks for itself. If you're beginning io think it's a pretty good car for the money, you're right it is. We could go on to tell you that it's a fun car to drive, but you really should drive it and discover that for yours_elf. Drive it soon, at your nearest Toyota dealer. and fasfbacfe Sprinter.
