Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 28, 1973 WASHINGTON is a beautiful city, as millions of visitors know. Not all, however, see it at its most beautiful at night. Tom Tiede photographs the capital after dark. Interpreting the News Defiant Swedish premier may govern by By ROD CURBIE LONDON (CP) Atlhough a defiant Prime Minister Olof Palme insists he will govern Sweden "by lottery" if neces- sary, it is clear his election setback this week reflects broad dissatisfaction with his Social Democratic party's design for a modern Sweden. Aides say Palme is ab- solutely serious about the lot- drawing proposal, unless the trickle of postal votes to be tabulated late this week break the dead-heat result or he succeeds in forming a workable coalition. There is a precedent for drawing lots in non-crucial votes in the Riksdag, but the high degree of co-operation between most of the parties has usually made such con- frontations" unnecessary. Still, if Palme goes ahead with the idea in the current tense at- mosphere, his government could fall on the draw of a "yes" or "no" voite from the hat. COALITION POSSIBLE The election results left him less than anxious to lead his party into another election soon, observers say, but he could seek a coalition with one of the various opposition par- ties, probably the Liberals. So far the Liberals, who did poor- ly in the voting, are playing coy. The results gave Palme's party and the Communists, its unofficial coalition partners. 175 same total as the combined non-Socialist op- position parties. Even before the lacklustre campaign wound up, polls were indicating deep dis- satisfaction with the Social Democrats who had governed for 40 years and moulded Sweden into Europe's richest country. Main public criticism centred on inflation and on sky-high taxes necessary to support Sweden's lavish welfare benefits, unemploy- ment and a sometimes ruthlessly efficient bureaucracy which some feel intrudes too much in private affairs. Although Sweden this year surpassed the United States in terms of per capital gross in- comes, a Swede pays in taxes more than half of every dollar No sulphur complaints received EDMONTON (CP) Alberta has received no com- plaints from American interests concerning sulphur exports into Louisiana and Texas, Bill Dickie, provincial mines minister, said yester- day. Commenting on statements by Democratic Russell B. Long and representative Joe E. Wagoner, both Louisiana, that Alberta sulphur exports are causing "havoc" for American producers, Mr. Dickie said there are signs the world sulphur situation is im- proving. The Louisiana Democrats testified before a United States tariff commission hearing. John C. Carrington, senior vice-president of Freeport Minerald Co. of Louisiana, told the hearing Canadian sulphur sold for as little as a ton. Mr. Carrington estimated his company's cost of produc- ing sulphur as between and a ton. Mr. Dickie said it is difficult to assess the produc- tion costs of Alberta sulphur because it is a byproduct of the natural gas industry. 'd like to Mr BF w H
