Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 THE tETHBRIDGE HERAID Wcdnoviiay, September 3, 1970- Nonsense' -Stanfield leader. Mr. Stanfield, EDMONTON (CP) Robert Stanfield said Tuesday there is BO trulh to a published report that the Ontario Progressive Conservative party has asked him to resign as national visiting his daughter here for two days, said through a spokesman the report, was "absolute non- tense." The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix said in a story it had learned from a reliable source that a se- cret meeting was held by the Ontario Conservative party be- fore the Commons adjourned for the summer. The story says the meeting drafted two resolutions, one asking him to resign. The second resolution, the story says, asked that failing resignation, Mr. Stanfield agree to barnstorm the country with John Diefenbaker, former party leader, in an attempt to unite the party and defeat the Liber- als in the next federal election. The newspaper also says that Twin Bangs Signal Flight Of Concorde OBAN. Scotland (CP) The British-French Concorde brought the age of supersonic jetliners to Britain Tuesday with a double bang that rattled windows and panicked seagulls. There were no reports of damage after Concorde 002, the British prototype' of the joint venture, swept over Oban at a speed faster than sound. Twenty seconds after the tri- angular 002 sped south, twin bangs of the sonic boom hit Oban. There has widespread apprehension thai the Concorde sonic booms might damage an- cient buildings. This was the first time in the test series that the British Con- corde went fast enough to cre- ate a sonic boom. It reached Mach 1.68, about miles an hour. Test pilots are to try and hit the maximum speed of miles an hour next month. The Concorde landed on only three of its four engines. Test pilot Brian Trubshaw shut off No. 2 engine because instru- ments Indicated that it was ov- erheating for the final 30 min- utes of the flight. between 17 and 24 members of the party may sit as independ- ent Conservatives at the next session of Parliament if Mr. Stanfield rejects urgings to step down as leader. Mr. Stanfield said the sugges- tion was "pure speculation." MEETING HELD A group of western Conserva- tive MPs, including Mr. Diefen- baker, met in Saskatoon last week. The meeting was not sanctioned by the party, nor was Mr. Stanfield invited to at- tend. Jack Homer, Alberta MP for Crowfoot, was at the meeting and lias said the party leader- ship was discussed. "We want and need improve- Mr. Homer said, indi- cating that changes could in- clude a new party organizer. The Star-Phoenix says one of the MPs who attended the meet- ing said Mr. Stanfield still is re- spected by many Conservatives but that disenchanted party members have "no respect" for his organizers. Before Parliament r e c o n-, Mr. Staniield will be made aware of the position taken by those who attended the meeting and the disenchanted members hope this will lead to his resignation, the newspaper said. Meanwhile, Roy Watson, pres- ident of the Progressive Con- servative party of Alberta, said Tuesday that Alberta Conserva- tives are "solidly" behind Mr. Stanfield. "This story is attributed to a reliable source which indicates it is someone who is not pre- pared to stand up and identify himself and who is obviously flying kites." Mr. Stanfield completes his visit with his daughter Thurs- day and will continue a 10-day tour of Alberta which began Sunday at Banff. In Toronto, E. A. Goodman, organization chairman of the Conservative party in Canada, said Tuesday night that "the Star-Phoenix story is garbage utter nonsense." "I'm very close to the picture in Ontario and at any type of re- view Mr. Stanfield would be overwhelmingly he said. "There isn't even a rumbling or suggestion there is abso- lutely no truth to it whatsoever. "I haven't the foggiest idea who circulated the story." lysw WSAl x JX..A. -rt< UNDER THE BAN-Topless waitresses Andrews and Johanna Laforge, whoso eye-catching state of undress has bean an attraction at Diamond Jim's down- town Vancouver, display newspaper headline concerning an edict issued by the British Columbia liquor control board that waitresses in liquor outlets must cover up in the future Johanna says she serves dinner at home without anything on and says she doesn't think the board should have the right to tell waitresses what they car, or cant VANCOUVER (CP) Army Navy and Air Force Veterans of Canada want the country to continue to celebrate the 1918 armistice on Nov. 11 and not turn it into a long holiday weekend.
