GEORGE rapped Social Credit Party Leader Werner Schmidt said Satur- day the party can attract sup- port because some people are already dissatisfied with the Tories. Coming back to a youth seminar after meeting a senior citizens' group convinc- ed him there are three ages of people young, younger and newborn, he said. "To suggest the knight in white armor is losing pop- ularity would not be Mr. Schmidt told The Herald. But the "gimme government" is trying to buy votes with programs, he said, though the lollipops are runn- ing out. The northeastern czar 'can overrule some laws, and the government's ownership of business could destroy the pioneer spirit which built the province, he said. The government should not use people's money to com- pete against them for stocks, and should not buy companies as it did Pacific Western Airlines. Under the con- solidated investment fund regulations, the government can buy any business showing a three year profit, but it should buy nothing private citizens have built up, he said. Mr. Schmidt discounted reports that three prospective Social Credit candidates in Cardston riding had said they were Conservatives, though others plan to contest the nomination. "I would like to suggest that (Herald Political Reporter) Al Scarth keep his speculations to said Mr. Schmidt. Warrants issued for man Two warrants on three charges for the arrest of a Tuscon.

He suggested the problems could be solved by consultation among cattle producers, economists who could suggest marketing models and citizens interested in the problems. Asked his opinion of per calf loans to cow-calf operators, the Socred leader said there are three choices. Producers can either leave the cattle business, refuse aid and absorb losses until times get better or take aid until times get better. His personal inclination would be to try to absorb his losses and make them up later. But, he said, he couldn't tell farmers what to do. "There is a time when freedom is more important than he said. Government influence in all areas of citizens' lives is growing, he said, adding young people might nave to sacrifice its benefits for freedom, if they and their children are to have the same right their parents had to find success themselves. The proposed Alberta Am- monia plant is probably a good thing for the country, and should be built, he said. Queried about another 22 plants said to be on the draw- ing boards, he asked his questioner: "What would you do if a lion walked into the room right "A lion won't walk into the room right said the questioner. replied Mr. Schmidt. Applications for industrial projects are considered one at a time on what is known, he said. He blasted the Progressive-' Conservative government for its purchase of Pacific- Western Airlines, calling one of the most ill-advised. decisions that the govern- ment has made." PWA's net profit was million a year, he said, and a guaranteed investment cer- tificate at 10 per cent a year would yield million a year. The only two "outsiders" proven to be interested in buy- ing PWA were the White Pass and Yukon Railway, owned in Winnipeg, and International Jet Air of Calgary. These are both Canadian interests, not outsiders, he said. PWA resisted seven attempts to buy it out in its corporate history, said Mr. Schmidt. He said he takes his stand on principle, since the govern- ment should not buy businesses that private citizens have built. There are better uses for government investment money, such as the irrigation fund proposed by the Social Credit Party, he said. Money loaned would keep coming back for re-use, and could be used for other capital works as well as irrigation. The Northeast Commission Act "has to be he said. It will be repealed if a Social Credit government takes office, not immediately on taking office, but after the situation is studied and the right alternative has been found. WERNER SCHMIDT, SOCRED LEADER, EXPLAINS ISSUES IN SESSION SATURDAY Kidnapping becomes con game in U.S. By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer Confidence men are now tricking bank or supermarket managers into believing false- ly that their families have" been abducted in a new wrinkle in crime in the United States, an investigator said here Saturday. Harold A. Vogelsang, Butte, special agent for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion said that 25 cases of kidnapping trickery have occurred in the last six months. He commented dur- ing an interview. A new trend of kidnapping is occurring across the United States where the kidnappers trick a bank or supermarket managers into believing they have kidnapped their families when in actual fact they haven't Harold A. Vogelsang, a special agent with the FBI in Butte, Mont., told The Herald at the weekend there have been 25 incidents of this kind in the U.S. in the past six months. He said in most instances no one has been kidnapped but the bank or supermarket manager is cleverly tricked into believing his relatives have been kidnapped. Mr. Vogelsang declined to give details of how these peo- ple are tricked. Mr. Vogelsang was in Lethbridge Friday to address an international law enforce- ment conference. The FBI in Butte is meeting bank and supermarket managers to tell them about the development and how to react if it does. They are told how a hoax can be recognized. The FBI is trying to get better acquainted with bank and supermarket operators so if there is a kidnap situation the victims will have enough confidence in the police to contact them immediately. If the police are contacted they take the position that the most important thing is the safe return of a victim, Mr. Vogelsang said. If police discover the scheme is a hoax and there is no victim they have more freedom to act. Bill McGibbon, an executive officer in protective policing with the RCMP in Ottawa, was in Lethbridge to address the conference on VIP security. He told The Herald in an interview one of the most im- portant things in protecting visiting heads of states is to be sure there are no sudden changes of plans. When Premier Alexei Kosygin visited Canada a few years ago it was a sudden change of plans that opened the opportunity for the Rus- sian leader to be attacked. Prime Minister Trudeau and Mr. Kosygin were just about to get in a car to ride a short distance when they decided to walk because it was such a nice day. As a result, most of the security men were still in their car when the attack took place. Fortunately one securi- ty man was at hand and the Russian premier wasn't in- jured. Mr. McGibbon said about 40 security men in Ottawa look after the security of Prime Minister Trudeau, Governor General Jules Leger and their residences. Mr. Trudeau usually has two security men with him at all times and Mr. Leger has one Fire burning near park About 25 men are fighting a forest fire on Charley Wise Creek, a tributary of Sage Creek in southeastern British Columbia about 20 miles Pincher PCs to choose candidate Progressive Conservatives in Pincher Creek Crowsnest choose a candidate tonight to contest the next provincial election. Three persons have an- nounced they will contest the nomination and more can- didates may appear at the nomination. Premier Peter Lougheed was scheduled to address the 8 p.m. meeting in the Livingstone School auditorium at Lundbreck. 70 miles west of Lethbridge. Fred Bradley, 25, Blairmore store manager; Ron Zukiwsky, 30. Pincher Creek school vice principal, and Gwen Gyulai, 37, operator of a guest ranch near Beaver Mines, have announced they will contest the race. Hie winner will run against incumbent Socred MLA Charlie Drain in the next elec- tion. northeast of Waterton, a B.C. Forest Service spokesman said today. But the fire is fairly quiet now, forest protection officer Ed Hlady said in a telephone interview from Nelson. The fire covered about 40 acres on Friday, he said, and continued on Saturday and Sunday. Limited equipment was used in fighting it because of the terrain. At its peak, the fire candled burning across the ground and going up any dry trees it hit but it did not crown. In crowning, the fire jumps from top to top. Candling is con- sidered less serious than crowning, said Mr. Hlady. He said the forest service is having difficulty near Fording Coal, and deeper into the Flathead River area. Some fires have to be extinguished two or three times because of dry conditions, and because the wind blows some fires across fire guards. The burning time is short at this time of year, and fires definitely cool off at night, he said. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est1922 PHONE E. S. f. FOX, CJDML FOXLETHMMGEDBrTALLAI 2M MEDICAL DENTAL MUM. Thank you! DOUG CARD PUBLIC SCHOOL TRUSTEE CM327-33M Ml Wi S. JCT-6133 Back to the laboratory "They may want to adjust something." That's what Joe Glowach, district highways engineer, says about this sign west of Lethbridge which insists on falling over in gusting southern Alberta winds. In reality, it is a special sign, one of only three in the province designed to shear off when hit by a vehicle, hopefully resulting in less damage to both the sign and occupants of the vehicle. The least in the south, is striking a balance between impact by winds and vehicles. Defeating the wind by making the shear bolts stronger would defeat the purpose of lessening collision damage and risk of life. THANK YOU! I wish to take this op- portunity to sincerely thank all those who worked and supported me in my successful bid for re- election as alderman of the City of Lethbridge. I make only one promise and that is to serve to the best of my ability ail citizens of this city. My sincere thanks again.
