Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedn.vlay, Sepl.mW 17, 1972 THE IITH6RIDGE MERAIO 15 Stanf ield has good, bad moments By PAUL JACKSON' Herald Ollawa Bureau Progressive A few days ago Conservative sup- in SI. John's, Nfld., or- ganized a reception for party leader Robert Stanfield at tlio ISO-room Holiday Inn. As Iho night wore on, the party be- came less and less conservative End Increasingly progressive. Billboards, radio spots and word-ot-mouth advertising tolc Newfoundlanders of all pilitica persuasions and ot any age to head for the hotel to meet the cal groups and lusty maiden jenerated for Mm. In Oakville, Out., a day or so earlier, the Conservatives hold a rally attended by between 000 and persons. On stage they had as many top PC per- sonalities as it was possible to cram. Housing cheers greeted Ontario premier Bill Davis, for- mer provincial secretary and now PC candidate Allan Law- rence, former Liberal cabinet minister Paul Hellyer also now a Conservative candidate and a wide variety of other party leader. It seemed to many that just about everyone in tie community heeded the call. Within a couple of hours of the party getting under way, the PCs and those who took in tlie Invitation had almost taken the hotel from top to bot- tom. School children, teen- agers, and sliaggy-haired hip- pies mingled with men and women in formal dress beneath huge pictures of the Con- servative leader and the red, wlute and blue campaign pla- cards. NOT gO STAID The surprising thing was the reaction the rather staid and low key Robert Stanfield spur- red. Even though many of Uie hundreds of persons who jam- med Uie hotel must have been along "just for Hie ride" there was no doubt about the enthusi asm the Conservative leader generated or that the musi PC sitting MPs and hopefv. candidates.

Slanfield horns with an odd- ad all radio hotline show host ailed Ron Pumplwry. Mr umphery, who said, he once escribed the Conservative eader as Uie stereotype of a uneral director. Insisted cti analyzing Mr. Slanfield and .Iso had a graphologist inter- Met his writing. Mr. Stanfield, despite the vig- orous Mr. Pumphrey, came off he hero of the show. Mr. Stan- icld's aides, the press conlin- jent travelling with him, and is well as others who listened n agreed that the Conserva- Mr. Slantield's campaign tour, observers reached the con- clusion that the Conservative eader has really broken trough. His speech Is deliv- ered well and received with al- most ecslacy by his audience. In question and Interview ses- sions he comes out on top. THE BUM Then, a day or even a few hours later, Mr. StanfieU makes a speech that falls fla fcer being delivered haltingly ind seemingly witliout much jithusiasin. Or he appears on a tolline radio show that every ne agrees was a dull arxl dU ppointuig flop. Yet the speec nd questions were basicall re same in both instances. No one expects a politica eader, especially one on election campaign, i >e in top form 24-hours a da and seven days a week. Never heless, Mr. Stanfield's pe live leader had won points. Incidents such as this, In which Mr. Stanfield is so very good, are balanced by instances when he is very, very bad. Ev- eryone is perplexed by Mr Slanfield. For every one or two outstanding speeches or inter views, the Conservative leader always managed to fumble the ball in another. He appears tc have everything in the palm o his hand and for some mi accountable reason, lets it fa! through his fingers. On a number of occasion during the first two weeks o ilexes the press.

Of course, Prime Minisl Trudeau has lu's off momen too. Sometimes he gels frus- trated and annoyed. Sometimes he spits out an obscenity or two.
