Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the dome By THE CANADIAN PRESS Socreds suggest program The Social Credit opposition has suggested a program for the Lougheed government to follow, calling for A clear statement on in- flation by Premier Peter Lougheed with the commit- ment that the province will do everything possible to alleviate the effects of rising prices. A balanced budget Adjournment of the Legislature for a few days so members can sit as a com- mittee of public affairs to hear the views of federal of- ficials and industry spokesman on the energy con- troversy. A commitment by the Alberta government to con- sult with groups in the province before taking any ac- tion that might affect the groups. The suggestions came from Bob Clark, making major address as opposition House leader. Cheaper coal shipments The government has com- plained that United States railways can ship coal from Montana to Ontario for 30 per cent less than Canadian railways charge for similar shipments between Alberta and Ontario. As a result, Ontario com- panies have bought Montana coal although Alberta has coal to spare and is actively seek- ing markets in Eastern Canada, the Legislature was told. "This very issue illustrates some of the problems imposed on Western Canada by the transport said Don Getty, minister of in- tergovernmental affairs. Liability payments hiked The first of two planned moves to raise the minimum payments for public liability claims involving motor vehicles in Alberta has been introduced in the Legislature Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne introduc- ed legislation raising the max- imum payment that can be made from the motor vehicle accident claim fund to from the present A companion bill that will require the minimum coverage for all drivers in the province is expected shortly. The accident claim fund provides settlements to drivers who are involved in accidents with drivers carry- ing no insurance. Those who do not carry public liability in- surance are in violation of Alberta laws. Changing coal contracts The power to change previously-agreed conditions in coal contracts is necessary if the Alberta government is to deal adequately with fast- changing conditions in the in- dustry says Jim Henderson. Mr Henderson, former Social Credit house leader who resigned to sit as an in- dependent representing Wetaskiwm-Leduc, disagreed with his former party colleagues in his first speech as an independent member.

Tuesday, October 16, 1973 LETHBRIOQE HERALD -3 Rhymemakers urge Poetry Day LOS ANGELES a display of poet power, Cali- fornia's rhymemakers are bombarding Gov. Ronald Rea- gan with pennies and poems urging him to proclaim Mon- as Poetry Day. Since 1950 when Gov. Earl Warren signed the first proc- lamation, Oct. 15 has been Poetry Day in California. In 1960 the state legislature gave it official sanction. But in 1970, citing the cost of preparing an illuminated parchment, Reagan stopped all state proclamations. The parchments cost more than NICK OF TIME BARI, Italy (AP) Thieves broke into a church near here only a few days before a bur- glar alarm system was to bei installed Police said they es- caped with 50 vases from the 4th and 5th centuries, a painting of the Madonna and a statue of Christ each. The state's poets, led by the California Federation of Chaparral Poets, launched a campaign to pay the costs. Scholer Bangs, a member of the executive board of the federation, who originated the idea, is urging people to send pennies and poems to Reagan to persuade him to sign the proclamation. Reagan has been silent so far on the poets' plea. No estimate has been made of the number of poems and pennies that have reached the governor, but Bangs said all 800 members are participat- ing. CAREER Just a normal day A school crossing guard in Oshawa, Ont., patiently waits for green light while two young ladies use him as a battlefield. When the light turned green, he sent the tykes peacefully across the street that is, until they reached the other side.
