Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurviay, Sepltmber 14, 1972 THI LFTHMIDGE 17 PFERRE TRUDEAU must win ROBERT STANFIELD might stay DAVID LEWIS on the spot HEAL CAOUETTE pressure mounts Heat 011 three of four in election Last hurrah for party leaders? By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA This election :ampaign could bs the last hur- rah for three of the four na- tional leaders. They are running hard to- wards what may ba the end of the road for the political ca- reers of those who place second third and fourth in the election race. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau must win and win big otherwise he will be in deep trouble with the Liberal party. If lie fails to capture suf- ficient seats to form a majority government and heads up a mi- nority administration it won't be long before there will be rumblings within the ranks of his backbenchers. Even when he held a substantial majority In the last Parliament there were mutterings within the party caucus over his leader- ship. PEARSON POPULAR Mr. Trudeau lacks an ingre- dient his immediate predecess- or had in large quantity that is "popularity." L. B. Pearson was so well liked by his fellow Liberals and so popular among Iho back-benchers that even when he snatched defeat from victory in his campaigns against John Diefenbaker, he was able to head up minority administrations and survive. There were complaints with In the ranks in the Pearson days when the government stumbled and fumbled. But Mike Pear son's magic appeal in caucus his boyish grin and self depre- cating quips, won him suppor time and time again. It was "perish the thought" for any oae who wondered .aloud alxm turfing out Mike as leader. Mr. Trudeau, if he finds him self heading a minority govern ment will not have that sam Bolld support. There are Liber als here prepared to wager he'd only last a year as minor Ity leader. TEMPERSIENT ANGLE As for being leader of the op position it is doubted here tha Mr. Trudeau would stay aroun very long. His temper has short fuse, He is not suited la that job. It requires a certain tempera ment to occupy the post leader of Her Majesty's loya opposition. The Trudeau tern perament is not the right type He would probably resign a leader within six months. With the campaign officially unched the second week in aptember, the pundits are pre- cting a minority government ill he the outcome. However svelopments during the seven post soon, eek campaign could change result. The Liberals and Progressive onservatives are gambling leir respective campaigns will effective enough to convince "undecided" voters to wing to their party. Meantime betting based on polls is hat the best any party can ope for is to form a minority overnment. INDER PRESSURE If Robert Stanfield, the na- lonal Conservative leader, pulls t off and forms a majority, r even a minority government, ne will stay on as leader. The Tories would regard a minority ovemment as A minority Conservative gov- ernment would probably mean another election within the rear. If that came about the Conservatives are confident hat the second election would eturn Stanfield with a major- ty government. If the Liberals' prayers are answered and the Trudeau gov- ernment is returned with a ma- ority the pressure would go on iob Stanfield to bow out'. The Tories would start looking for a new man to lead them in the next campaign. The Conservatives have a reputation of dumping their eaders with as much publicity possible. The Liberals, on the other hand, ease their lead- ers out with little bloodletting and a minimum of notoriety. If the Conservatives lose the election it won't be long before lalk is heard of yet another Progressive Conservative lead- ership convention. A Tory win could put Stanfield in office as prime minister for several terms. Once in office he would be hard to defeat. RUNNING HARD David Lewis, New Democra- tic Party leader, has caught fire early In the campaign with Ms "corporate welfare bums" issue. The NDP'ers are hoping he will be able to fan the em- bers into a roaring flame that will win many more seals for the party. Should Lewis succeed in add- ing to the NDP membership in the Commons he could continue as national leader for some time to come, perhaps even into another campaign. But should his campaign falter and fail to add materially to the NDP seats, he would be step- ping down from the leadership Social Credit Leader Tteal Caouette Is in the same predi- cament as Mr. Lewis. If he adds to the Social Credit total in Parliament, he will probably be expected to carry on. If the party does not do as well as ex- pected in Quebec the pressures wili be on him to resign the leadership. That's why the leaders are running EO hard. One-time medical remedy Maggots help save woman's life GUEIPH, Ont. (CP) Mag- gots, a one-time medical to clean wounds, lelped save the life of Dcnise Sprayson as she lay pinned in the wreckage of a car for five days, Dr. G. L. Stewart, area coroner, said today. The maggots, sworming over the shattered face and limbs of the 37-year-old Maxwell, woman, prevented blood poison- ing, Dr. Stewart said In an in- terview. She was reported progressing favorably today in hospital after being trapped under the rear wheel of an auto wreck that claimed the lives of her husband and two friends. In the car, beneath .which Mrs. Sprayson was found by a motorist who stopped to walk his dog, were the bodies of her husband Frank, 42, and George Albert Price, 40, of Priceville, Ont. The body of Mrs. Gordon Willicombe, 37, of Hopesville, Ont., had been thrown clear of the car when it failed to make a curve and plunged down an embankment 26 feet from the road Tuesday night. The barking of the excited dog attracted attention Sunday to the accident, the first In- dication of what had happened :o the foursome since they were reported missing Wednesday. "We are quite pleased with Munro engaged in ttvo more campaigns HAMILTON ICP) Health and Welfare Minis- ter John Munro, whose cel- ebrated campaigns to quit smoking have proved un- successful, is engaged in two more campaigns: one for re-election in his con- stituency of Hamilton East and one to lose weight. He said Tuesday he hopes to lose 20 pounds before election day Oct. 30. He has already lost about 20 pounds, and is down to be- tween 185 and 190. He said he has just gone Into a size 42 suit and it is already "beginning to bunch up." ler condition, though she's still n s somewhat shocked condl- said a spokesman of St. Joseph's Hospital. "She is re- ipondlng well to treatment." Dr. Stewart said her wounds were "loaded" with maggots and her discomfort during her reriods of consciousness must lave been "beyond imagina- ion." "She lived through an ordeal which many people could not lave he said. The fact she was unconscious much of the time helped to re- duce the shock. Being in a mar- shy area shaded by trees and watered by showers kept her body from being dehydrated, he said. "It isn't too niany ago that maggots were used to clean wounds. Undoubtedly this helped save her life." Dr. Frank Farmer, who treated Mrs. Sprayson shortly after she was found Sunday, said before the discovery of an- tiseptics, maggots were used to clear dead flesh and help with the healing of wounds. Nurses at St. Joseph's Hospi- tal said Mrs. Sprayson's only recollection of the accident waj a policeman bending over her ind telling her she would ba 'ree from the wreckage in a moments. Find family of ill girl OTTAWA (CP) The family of a young Canadian woman ill in Athens has been located and arrangements are being mads to return her to this country. Members of the family, who had been trying to locate the young woman for some time, identified her following publica- tion of an appeal by the exter- nal affairs department. At the request of the family and for humanitarian reasons, the external affairs department withheld the proper name and hometown of the young woman. Initial reports from Athens had given various names. The girl was in jail (or va- grancy the result of her ilt ness, officials said. Snoring rumpus LOS ANGELES (AP) Harris Robinson is not a man to take accusations about his loud snoring lying down. His snoring has been a sub- ject of controversy since the Robinson's moved recently to a suburban Huntinglon Beach housing development. Mrs. Robinson admits her husband's snoring is like a storm. "It is a long rolling sound like thunder in the she says. "There is a second of silence and then it begins all over again." But IS years of marriage apparently has numbed Mrs. Robinson to the nightly sound. "I have three she said, "f can try to fall asleep first. I can take my pillow and go to another room. Or I can get up and listen to an all-night TV lalk show." But the Robinsons1 next- door neighbors apparently have not adapted to the. rum- bles. LAWYER SENDS LETTER A lawyer representing Mr. and Mrs. Earl Hardenbrook told thfi Robinsons by mail of tlie hardship placed on the Hardenbrooks. Their bedroom is only 10 feet across from the Robinsons. On hot sum- mer nights, when bedroom windows normally are left open, they say the noise keeps them awake. Robinson's snoring, the let- ter said, "constitutes a prr vale nuisance affecting the quiet enjoyment of Mr. and Mrs. Hardenbrook's real property." And he suggested that the Robinsons "move your bed- room or close your windows" to make sleeping easier for the neighbors. He said he would seek a court Injunction if the Robinsons didn't com- ply. Robinson, 53, got in touch with his own lawyer who, in turn, told Hardenbrooks' law- yer he could find no "author- ity to the effect that my client can be compelled by a court of equity to: "A. Move his becVouni. ?'n. Close his windows on warm summer evenings. "C. Cease his snoring. "If you can find appro- priate authority for the last proposition, however, it will be welcome news indeed for housewives all over the world." That's where the matter stands.
