About seven years ago Brian went into a Calgary bank to borrow to buy a second- hand furniture warehouse from his father who ran a small "hanging on the threads" fur- niture store downtcivn. He turned it into one of Al- berta's largest independent fur- niture store and mobile homes sales outlets.

"There's a trend away fro the government, and I'm loo ing for it to settle in our fav because in all of the upsets other provinces where tho Ne Democratic Party won, they were the only opposition party or their leadership was sue that they could be identified a a middle-of-the-road party. "I don't believe that the NDP under Stephen Lewis, is ident fied that way here. In my the province is not made up o people who are anxious for revolutionary change. I thin this, more than anything els discounts the often trumpetec chances oE the NDP. "I'm quite confident across-the-board i ra pro v he said, adding that his party's middle-of-the-road pos tibn means "we're not locke out of any geographic area.'

TIME FOR CHANGE? Mr. Nixon, 43, a teacher anc farmer before he entered poli tics and who still lives at the family honrestead in St. George near Brantford, said the mail issue in Uie campaign will be whether it is time for a change of government. He referred to election upsets in six provinces, the most re cent in Alberta, "the most pros- perous in Canada, no sales tax Uie lowest unemployment, ye' which opted for an alternative to the incumbent."

A CNR spokesman said here estimated carloads of lumber are w a i t i n g at rail points between Vancouver and Prince George and lumbermen in B.C. are being laid off unlil the backlog ol lumber is shipped. The shortage is cavised by the demand for tho cars for grain shipments. The Chicago and Northwest- ern Railroad is supplying cars and anblher 40 will lie- sup- plied dally by tho Milwaukee Railroad.

His father, the late H. C. Nixon, was premier of Ontario for a brief period in IMS. Now, after tour years, the party has a "blueprint for gov- and a leader with ex- perience. Mr. Mxon says he expects a hard but clean campaign, with a de-emphasis on personal at- tacks. His party will concen- trate on issues, striking at what he calls government waste, lack of planning and centralized au- thority. He is not concerned about what effect, if any, the party's link with the federal Liberals and Prime Miiu'ster Trudeau wil have on his party's chances.

Mr. Tmdeau replied Iliat he had said last week that he was not ruling out an appeal to Mr- Nixon if other steps did not dis- suade the Americans. He was still not ruling out the possibility that he might "take my cap in hand'1 and go to Washington.

Balance of payments surplus tapers off By JAMliS NI5LSUN OTTAWA (CP) Canada's unusual balance-of-paynicnls surplus, which ran to extraordi- nary heights last year, lapcrcd off in April, May and June, fresh statistics on the econ- omy's performance show. II this is start of an estab- lished, trend, Canada's interna- tional riches might prove less embarrassing in negotiation.'; with the United States for relief Irom President Nixon's JO-pcr- cent supplementary duty on im- ports. The surplus was million in Jie second quarter of 1971, corn- Dared with 5142 million in the :irst quarter and 5248 million in he same period last year. It hit i peak of 5507 million in the :inal three months of 1970, and for Uie year as a whole totalled 11.28 billion. In 19G9, there was more normal deficit of 5751 million. The surplus results from money coming into payment for Canadian exports )f goods and services, and in other money flows such as in- leritances and funds brought in iy exceeding what Canada has to pay out for mported goods and services ind in other payments. USUALLY HAS DEFICIT Normally, Canada runs a defi- in its current international lalance-of-paymenls which is :overed by foreign capital com- ing into Canada. When there is a large surplus j the current account balance, appears to other countries lat their money is being drained away by Canada. This the commonly-held view of he United Slates when it looks o see where its large outflow o[ m e r i c a n dollars has been ;oing in recent years. However, the Canadian gov- rnment argues that detailed statistics snow Canada is not a drain on tlie U.S. dollar, sinco Ihis country pays large sums back to the United States in the form of interest and dividends. Figures to far available on the Canadian economy at mid- year do not show the bf.lance- of-paymenU between Canada and the United Stales for the latest three-month period. More detailed figures are scheduled to be release by Statistics Can- ada next week. Last year's big surplus in Lie detector lest? Priddle challenges Sykes CALGARY (CF) Aid. Tom Priddle has invited Mayor Rod Sykes to join him in a lie ce- tector test and predicted as a result "erne of us would be de- clared unfit to run for politi- cal office." Aid. Priddle termed as "bla- tant fabrication" a statement by the mayor Monday the alder man had been offered to nm under the October 13 citi- zens' committee banner in the civic election. The committee, wlu'ch has en- dorsed Frank Jones as a may- oralty cand i d a t e in next month's election, denied it has Family doctors' earnings will climb in near future BANFF (CP The dispar- ity in doctors' incomes will dis- appear within the next few years, predicts Dr. Stanley Greenliill, chairman of the de- partment of community medi- cine at Uie University of Alber- ta. He told a news conference lere the wide income scale with some doctors receiving considerably higher incomes than others, stems from when 'the surgeon was kingpin." Although he did not believe that a straight salary for all doctors would be the eventual outcome, he dees think family doctors will receive a higher evel than at present and that the great differences will dis- appear. "Young doctors look with cynicism al their elders who equate success with Cadillacs and swimuig he said. Some of them might be willing to accept salaries, even without an incentive fee which most doctors today believe neces- sary. There also is a trend away from viewing money as an in- dication of success. He said that in some countries doctors are relatively poorly paid but high- ly respected. The high cost of a doctor's education can no longer be used as an excuse for extreme- ly high salaries, he said. About per cent of the cost of train- ing doctors is paid by the tax- payers. FEW HAVE COLOR One of every 12 British fami- lies has a color television set. any plans to run several alder manic candidates. The mayor said Monday Ilia "Aid. Priddle was in my office last week and he told me he had been offered to run as an October 13 committee candidate." "Apparently they are not only trying to buy the mayor's chair, they are trying to buy them- selves a stable full of alder- men." Aid. Priddle said he only had a general conversation with the mayor in which he suggested any candidates endorsed by the committee might receive large financial support. "But at no time did I say that I was offered or any oth- amount by the committee. There was no chance for a mis- understanding. "He knew exactly what he was doing when he made that statement. 'It was a deliberate move to discredit the October 13 com- mittee and me and there is no connection between us." A spokesman for the commit- tee said it has never promised monetary support to anv candi- dates for council and the com- mittee finance chairman said here would likely be a short- age of campaign funds because >f the amount spent on the re- cent provincial election. Canada's balance-of-payments with the whole world was due to softening of the Canadian and American economics and strengthening of economic ac- tivity in other countries. Exports to other countries, particularly in Western Europe, were unusually strong last year, while imports from the United Slates stagnated because of the economic slow-down. THi meant that Canada built up an inllow of funds that looked healthy on the surface, but proved embarrassing in lional comparisons.

And Doug Marshall, General Manager of the company, had the answers. On what does Alpha base its claim of top quality? On the richness of the Alberta grazing lands, on the years of experience of its milk producers and on (lie painstaking quality control in its plant. What guarantee is there for continued quality? The same answers, Cheryl, plus many years of dedication to the belief that there are no short cuts to quality. Those are the facts. The family of good Alpha products ;
