In a telephone interview, Mr. Gundlock told The Herald "if the government wants to call an election we'll fight, but it's more important right now to work together."

Mr. Gundlock said that if an election were called for this fall the present Liberal govern- ment would probably be re- elected, but with a reduced ma- jority. If the Liberals are looking for a strong mandate from the voters they will have to wait until at least a year from now, he said. Concerning the effect on Can- ada of President Nixon's re- cent economic policy changes, Mr. Gundlock said the time was now past when this could be used by the Liberals as an election issue. If Mr. Trudeau had seized upon it immediately, it could have been used as an election issue; now it is just a fact of life, he said. Mr. Gundlock said he could see little hope of the "facts of life" becoming any more pleas- ant for Canadians in the com- ing months. "There's no doubt we're going to have a hard he said. It is very unlikely the prime minister would call a winter election, he added. "We'll be In the midst of it all and there may harsher words from Mr. Nixon." Mr. Gundlock agreed with those political observers who (eel the government's position is probably stronger now than it nill be this winler, or even next spring. He added that the Liberals' chances diminish with each day the prime minister waits and if a fall election is called, it will have to be done "very soon" if the government is to derive any advantage at all 1 from the situation. Ferguson, Chichester oppose vote No fluoridation plebiscite Oct. 13 By RICIIAHD BUUKE Slair Writer There mil be no fluoridation plebiscite on the Oct. 13 civic election ballot. A signed by about persons asking that the issue of fluoridating the public waler be voted on by Lcth bridge electors initiated city council action on the matter Monday. Although the city solicitor classified the petition as being improperly submitted and not legally binding on city council, two bylaws concerning fluori- dation were re-introduced and acted upon. First reading was given to a bylaw providing authority for fluoridaLion of the public water. It was passed by a 6-2 margin with Aldermen Vera Ferguson and Cliick Chichester opposed. However, that move was insuf- ficient to have the issue put before the electorate. A subsequent bylaw, to es- tablish an advance poll and plebiscite, also passed first reading by a 6-2 margin with Aid. Ferguson and Chichester again opposed. According to parliamentary procedure, a bylaw must pass second and third readings be- fore it is binding. Because the first reading was not unani- mously passed, the second and third readings could not be heard. That bylaw cannot be brought before council again in time for the issue to be includ- ed on the ballot. City council did pass the first and second readings of a new Anne Campbell Singers planning return to Wales When the Anne C a m p b ell Singers competed in the Llan- gollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales in 1968, bil- lets for the group were ar- ranged by Miss Lilian Edwards of nearby Rhostyl'en. This week the roles are re- versed as Miss Edwards and Miss Myfanwy Hughes of Wrex- hain, Wales, are visiting Mrs. Campbell. They are staying at the home of Mrs. Orval J. Aos, who travelled with the Singers in I960 as nurse. Moss Edwards will have an- other opportunity to play host- ess next summer when Mrs. Campbell and her troupe re- turn to the music festival Wales. As winners in 1968, the Sing- ers have been invited to return lor the 1972 competition, sched- uled for July 4-9. Mrs. Camp- bell also has plans (still tenta- tive as yet) for a four of parts of Great Britain and the conti- nent. From Llangollcn they plan to go to Scotland, then down the coast ol England and across the Dover Straits to The Hague, Holland. Other countries will probably include Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France. Just how the (our Mill ac- tually turn out depends largely on bookings for concerts, which are still being negotiated. If the tour turns out to be as successful as Miss Edwards' cross-Canada safari, it will bo well worth Hie effort. Miss Edwards' one-word eval- uation her trip far is "magnificent." She maintains she has received "nothing but kindness" from the Canadians she has met so far, including e puhlic service employees. She had special praise for the courtesy of the bus driver who helped1 her and Miss H u g h c s negotiate a tricky .ra.nsfcr [ram the bus to Uic train and she claims the food on the train was souio tlio I finest she's ever encountered within a 15-mile radius. in her travels. The two travellers mil con- tinue on by rail to the west coast, then fly back to Toronto. Miss Edwards' involvement with the Llangollen Eisteddfod goes back some 10 years. In addition to finding places to stay in Welsh homes for the Anne Campbell singers, she has also found billets for the Brahms Choir of John Oliver High School in Vancouver, who were in the 1970 festival. She is justifiably proud of the reputation the festival has acquired in its 25 years, point- ing out that it is truly an in- event. Groups from all over the compete each year at Llangollen, bringing about chorislers into a "very small town."

Adoption of the bylaw is re- quired by a 1970 provincial law covering all municipalities. The legislation calls for a freeway on 24th Ave. S'. between 43rd St. and the west city Expressways aie planned to run along approximately 1st Ave. S. between 43rci St. and Scenic Drive, Scenic Drive be- tween 1st Ave. and 24th Ave. S., 43rd.

Shops' hours at council Oct. 4 The controversial closing of shops bylaw will be dealt with by city council in a special meeting Oct. 4 at 4 p.m. A motion by Alderman Vera Ferguson at the Sept. 7 meeting of council to have Mondays closed, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday open from 9 a.m. to G p.m. and Thursday and Friday open from 9 a.m. Lo 9 p.m. referred to the Oct. 4 meeting. Council will go through the bylaw clause by clause to es- tablish which businesses should be covered by the bylaw. Con- sideration will also be given to making the bylaw enforceable. The present council probably will not be able to act officially on changing the bylaw. Rec- omme.idalions are expected to come from the special meeting for consideration by the new council, following the Oct. 13 civic election. On another matter, council directed the city solicitor lo prepare a resolution concerning Ihc Provincial Police Act of 1971 for presentation to the Al- berta Urban Municipalites As- sociation convention in Edmon- ton next month. The resolution will deal with sections of the Police Act which the cily solicitor notes as being "ambiguous, impossible to ad- ministrate at the local level and appear to mitigate the powers of the board of police commissioners to deal effec lively in such areas as person- nel relations and contract ne- gotiations." Alderman Jim Anderson sug- gested the resolution specify a complete redraft of Police Acl rather than approaching it on a "patch-up" basis. Council also approved in principal a recommendation to authorize a committee which would meet with the Henderson Lake Golf Club to discuss solu- tions lo the problem of the hedge along the north boun- dary of South Parksidc Drive. With his recommendation, the parks and recreation super- intendent suggested tMt a five- year program be Dialed to upgrade around tne hedge, that the city assume a major finan- cial role in capital improve- ments and that the city try to have the hedge trimmed under a project such as the ecology corps starting spring, The recommendation In- cluded the possible removal of portions of the hedge and re- placing it witli trees.
