Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ THE L.ETHBRIDCE HERALD Thurjday, September 2, 1971 JNow ciilering new polilical era Many Albertans still bewildered about SC upset in election ny r.lUHAM TltOTI'EH EDMONTON' (CT) What luippeiK'd'.' .Many Albcrlans arc asking lliiil in llic dawn of the new rra they created hv endini; a .W-yi'ar courtship w'illi Sochi Credit and embrac- ing (lie ProiiR'ssive Conserva- livr, by IMcr Longhead.

ID while sending Social Credit strength spinning to J5 from There appeal to be mar.'- rea- sons for the overwhelming upset HIP Progressive Conserva- tives in MomUiv's gc-ncrn] olcc- licn. Chief among them, many observers agree, was the desire for change. The Conservatives hit hard wHh the theme ''It's time for a mange." Billboards and plac- ards signalled ''Now'' in large capiUil letters. After nine proviucinl general dec-linns in uhich they voled Social Credit mlo power, a ma- jority of Albertans heeded the message. REASONS OI-TEHED Party leaders offered various reasons- Premier Harry Strom, 57- ycar-nld farmer and rancher who led lus party lor the first time mlo a geneial election afler succeeding E. C. Manning in late 1303, said he felt the re suit was due lo the trend for change across Canada. This was i the sixth government lo fall in the last eight provincial elec- tions. Mr. Longhead, a 43-year-old Calgary lawyer who tacaino party leader in 1SX15 when the PCs held no scats in the legisla- ture, altribuled much of the Conservatives' success Monday to "duor-to door and farmyard- lo-farrr.ya-d" campaigning. Some voters complained their Social Credit candidate never came U> Iheir door. Liberal U-.idcr Bob Russell, -10, defeated in St. Albert, called it "a party basically a "two-way party fight" between the Conservatives and Social Credit. He ran a distant third behind candidates for those two parties after finishing a respect- ably-close second in 19G7 to So- cial Credit. Grant Notley, 32. leader of the New Democratic Parly, whose win in the northern riding of Spirit River-Fairvicw was only his party's second in 10 years, credited 'personal attacks" by I former premier E. C. Manning for his own victory. "This is the end of the Man- ning magic in Mr. No- tify said TALK ABOUT MANNING Much conjecture surrounds the impact on the voters made by the absence of Senator Man- ning at the Social Credit helm after 23 years ui Ihe premier- ship and seven general election triumphs. Many Alberlans instinctively voted for his brand of small-c conservative. free-enterprise government leadership of an oil-blessed provincial economy. Some polilical writers re- ferred to Ibis as Ihc "Manning mystique." "What f think Alberta has gone for is a new voice, a now [ace, a ncu style." Senator Manning said after the election. "But the province's politics are slill basically the same." He said that in Ihe absence of great issues between the Con- servative and Social Credit par- ties the "psychological need for change came in." Premie'- Strom, less at case or.

I Credit League, said after Ihe el- wa.s portrayed as (he He quiet, experienced kind of leader while Mr. Loughecd was boosted as leader of a young, vigorous "Lougheer1 team." The Conservative leader's name was given virtually equal promin- ence everywhere with that of his Bill Johnson of eclion "we lost the uncommitted vole." Much of this must have swung to Senator Manning in the past in his lopsided electoral viclorics. Social Credit insiders fell Fume campaign isi-ues were en- gineered lo embarrass the gov- ernment al election time. Edmonton, Attorney-General Edgar Ger- harl gave voice lo ll'.ese suspi- cions when lie suggested Ihere was "polilical involvemenl" in the walkout of guards from ihe five provincial jails just before the election. Mr. Gcrhart staled bluntly during a flurry of injunction ac- lions that the guards could be fired and evicted from govern- ment owned houses for striking illegally. He was soundly beaten by a Conservative in his Edmonton constituency Monday. In the days immediately be- fore the election, Ihe Civil Serv- ice Association of Alberta, which backed the guards, placed big n e ws p a p e r ads cl.arging the government prac- tised discriminalion against its own employees with restrictive bargaining legislation.

Then it was learned that Lhe pile, chosen because Ihe ciflfs of Ihe Lake Huron shoreline were similar to England's cliffs of Dover, had been the first i ailar training base on the North American continent Crown Assets Disposal Corp. offered the base for sale Monday. It consists of 253 acres of land, 169 buildings, a 15 room school, a hanger, swimming pools, a fire station and a hospital.

Traffic loll for holiday may hit 70 mJ OTTAWA (CP) Traffic ac- cidenls may kill more than 70 Canadians duruig the coming Labor Day weekend, the Can- ada Safety Council said today. The prediction is based on the poor Labor Day performance of Canadian drivers during past Labor Day weekends. Ihe coun- cil said in a news release. Over the last 10 Labor Day weekends, the council said. 783 people died in traffic accidents and some were injured. The highest number of people killed in any one Laiwr Day weekend was in i960. Last year. 7-1 people were killed. Phil Farmer, director of the safety council, said that persons who think such statislics arc distasteful or even ghoulish "arc the very people who should heed the warning, because they are the ones who close their J eyes to the numerous accident- producing situations that are part of everyday driving."
