Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The LctMnrldgc Herald Third .Section Lcthbi-idgc, Alberta, Wednesday, October 25, 1972 Pages 29-38 Analysts see Trudeau reluming to poiver Few feel Stanfield will succeed By WILUAM BOKDEHS New York limes Service WINNIPEG A little knot of people clustered around a sil- very campaign bus in a wind- swept furm community west -of here one day not long ago, lis- tening to .Robert L. Stanticld, the. Progrc'sive Conservative Party leader who wants to prime minister of Canada. Win- ter has already come to the and the bystanders hunched their shoulders, hands in pockets and collars turned "We i a swinger, j I During Uie last federal clec- .ion campaign in 19G8, he was a bachelor who dated personali- ses such as Barbra Streisand. His freewheeling style of life, unusual among Canadian poli- tical leaders, prompted a kind of adulation known here as Tru- deaumania. It gave Trudeau who had a few months earlier become Liberal party leader and1 prime minister oil the res- ignation of- Lester B, Pearson 150 of the 64 seats in the clear mandate in office. This time, at the age of 53, he has a wife and an infant son, and although Trudeau slill out- draws the other party leaders in the supermarkets, Trudeau- mania has clearly waned. The prime minister also now has a record of four years in office, during which he has, for example, pleased the prairie farmers by selling their wheat abroad and pleased some French Canadians in Quebec Robert Slanfield fighting a losing bailie? Children also have rights CREMONA, Alta. (CP) Roy and Jean Luyendyk, who have provided a home for 31 cliildrcn in 14 years of r.iar- riage, agreed four years ago to take care of four cliiidren from a family which the had de- serted. The understanding was that the husband might have them back as soon as lie was able to provide lor them. But his contacts with the chil- dren became less frequent and the Luyendyks applied to 'the health and social development department of the Alberta gov- ernment to make the children temporary wards. The application was granted. For three years the youngs ters had a relatively secure the company of other children, three of them adopted. Then in May a social worker told the family the father had proved lumself responsible and the children were to be returned at the end of the month. The parents were upsef. the were sent Eo the government from neighbors who also urged the Luyendyks to seek legal aid in fighting the decision. The outcome was a family court nillng allowing them to keep the children and proceed with adoption. "We didn't wish Ihe father any harm and we do realize that parents cto have certain said Mrs. Luyendyk. "But we also believe that chil- dren have rights, too." The community had earlier provided collective action to keep together the four children Catherine, G; Anne, 7; David, 8 and Timothy, 9. The welfare department, as i used Eo be known, wanted to up, as Stanfield declared: want to pursue policies Uiat strengthen Hie unity of this country." The unexciting woodcnness p: that phraseology, as well as his droning delivery, are character- 1 istic of (he man who is hoping to unseat Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and his j iLiberal Government in the par- Uamenlary elections next week. They are also among the rea- ;ons that new analysts think he rill succeed. As Charles Lynch, me of Canada's better known ilitical columnists wrote re- cently: "I suppose that Mr. Stanfield hasn't a single enemy n the whole of the country. 3ut I have yet to meet anybody who knows what he stands for, or cares enough to find out." By contrast, Trudeau is high- ly controversial, hated by some and adored by others, lie can be snappish and arrogant, even on the campaign trail, as when he recently dismissed critics of his economic policy as "belly- achers and poor-mouthers." or when he muttered an obscenity at a street corner heckler in British Columbia. Despite these outbursts, for most of the campaign Trudeau has tried to adopt an above- the-hattlc stance, conducting what he calls "serious conver- sations with in- stead of hard partisan politick-1 ing. Both he and Stanfield are back and forth across by upgrading the use of their House of Commons and his first i language to an equal basis with English all cross the country. But what wins votes in one region can lose votes in others. The two-languages policy, for example, is not generally pop- ular in the Canadian pride and national- ism are also important.issues, to people who think that Canada must do more to gain economic independence from the United States. Trudeau's position on the suhject is mild, but he is fond of pointing out that Can- ada was the leader in the re- cent swing toward world recog- nition of Communist China, and that he had visited both Peking and Moscow before President Nixon did. The opposition has made the state of the Canadian economy its major talking point, and just this month it received some new statistical ammunition. In a quick, one-two punch, tho government first announced that unemployment had ed to 7.1 per cent and an- nounced the nest day the cost of living had sharply. Dawd Lewis, the leader rt the third-ranking New Demo- cratic Party which has recnntly made some notable gains In provincial elections, jumped to the attack with the declaration that this economic situation was "completely unacceptable for and Stanfield said the figures added up to "four lost years hi the course of na- tionhood." But it will be just a few days Wore it is known whether or not anyone was listening. split them up because officials said the housing was inade- quate. So community residents col lected nearly wliich ena hied the family to complete the basement of their house and us it as sleeping children. Mrs. Luyendyk said they have this huge country in chartered DC-9 jets. But the prime minis- ter is spending less time kissing and dancing with women voters than he did in the last cam- paign, "The reason I'm enjoying this j election so much is that there quarters for the is ,ess ot ]ess of the the prime min- children were opposed and the so many youngsters. ister explained recently.

Hot spot for engineer VICTORIA (CP) A Ke- velstokc railway engineer is sitting in one of British Col- umbia's hottest spots. He's William King, Ihe labor minister in the New Parly govern- ment, and his is to try and impose a peace in tho open warfare between labor ami the provincial govern- ment that has racked the province. Under Die previous Social Credit government, Idbor was handled by another former railway man, James Chabot. The Mediation Commission Act, which provides for com- puls ory a rbi trat i on in 1 abor disputes, was a sore point with labor, and the NDP has promised to pass legislation to repeal the compulsory arbi- tration portion of the act. Mr. King, at 42 entering his second-session in the legisla- ture as MLA for Revelstoke- Slocan, said one of his first taste will he to bring labor and management closer to- gether. "Basically, labor and man- agement have to learn to live together and have to learn to be more he said in an interview. But, he added, "government should set the ground rules." "The framework (hat devel- ops, however, depends on JUDIIV Uungs." Reluctant to policy, King said government will try and maintain a low profile in. labor-management relations. "The worsl jhing you can have is politicians inflaming labor-management situations. "We will try and head off crises before they happen. "We must have more and just labor laws." Asked about his ties with the working class through his union membership, Mr. King said he would do "what is necessary to gain trust from both labor and management for the minister's office.'1 "This trust must be demon- strated and I don't expect to be greeted as a miracle worker by either But he said he would not give up his membership in the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, have my seniority Eo pro- tect and I think it xvould be highly presumptive for a poli- tician not to protect himself the mortality rate in politics is quite high." He should know. Mr. King won election lo tbe legislature in a byelection in Revelstokc-Slocan in !968 but managed only one sitting in the chamber before being swept out in the Social Credit landslide in 1969. He lias been active in NDP politics since 1952, starting as a runner between polling sta- tions and working Iris way up to organizer, campaign ama- ger and finally candidate, HOLD THAT HELICOPTER Making like a commuter obouMo miss his Irain, Presi- donl Nixon sprints across ihe White House grounds ro a helicopter waiting to lakn him tr> Cnmp David, ihfl provdenliol rPtrfinl in Maryland. iJordans For those with more flair than funds-- this is your moment for INCREDI On Jordans famous "Fashion Leader" If you appreciate the finer thmas of life and know a bargain you see one you'll recognize thii as a most important event.
