By OURC; MclNTYHK a tut RUDY 1IAUGENEURII Hiralcl Writers Deajie Gundlock, 58, retired after 14 years as Conservative IOP Jor Lcthbridge, mingled un- obstrusivcly among the Tories victory celebration at the El Henclio Motor Hotel Monday night. He was close to the door when Andy Russell, the defeat- ed Liberal candidate, arrived at p.m. {o extend con- gratulations to Ken Hurlburt, the victor and centre of the celebrations. "Hello said the older man, pumping Mr. Russell's hand warmly. "I feat a lot like a sheep tonight 1 really miss these nights." BUDDIES Mr. Hurlhurt spotted Mr. Rus- sell from the stage at the front of the room and shouted over the din "Ladies and gentlemen: one or my buddies for years and years, Andy Russell." As the two men embraced amid applause, Mr. Russell mumbled almost Inaudibly "All the best Eo ya." The Hurlburt celebration was a gala affair with more than 100 chairs, numerous color television sets, a bar and dining room and hundreds of people toss ting their good fortune at the polls. HANDY WIN Their popular r.ew candidate had even more handily lhan Mr. Gundlock won in 1908 against lire tide of Trudeauma- nia. Mr. Hurlburt credited his re- sounding win to the personal contact he was able to make with conslituenls during the campaign and to the direction which national Conservative leader Robert Stanfield is tak- ing the party. At one point in the evening when results gave Mr. Stanfield an unofficial majority govern- ment position, Mr. Hurlburt an- nounced "I've met Mr. Stan- field on six occasions he's a great guy and he'll make a great prime minister." FULL SUPPORT Mr. Hurlburt laler sent the party leader a telegram ap- plauding the parly rise in stand- ings and pledging full support. Social Credit headquarters were glum by comparison.
