Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, SO, 197S ITTHRRIDIl HESAUS 7 FOR SOCREDS Election is also rebuilding time By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The federal election campaign is also re- builcVng time for the Social Credit parly, at least outside Quebec. Party officials speak con- fidently of winning seals in the former provincial strongholds of Alberta and British Colum- bia, But the main aim of leader Heal Caouelte's recent 10-day Western swing seems to have been to attempt to heal old wounds and revive party organ- izations. Quebec remains the main hope for federal seats, 13 o! them in the last Parliament and none elsewhere. Significantly, Mr. Caouette says he Intends to spend most of the last month before the Oct. 30 election in Quebec. This week, after winding up his Western tour, he conducted an abbreviated Ontario visit com- bined with a brcatliing spell. EASTERN TOUH His Quebec campaign begins Saturday at La Sarre, with brief Marilimes visils sched uled. The party has blankeled northern New Brunswick with television broadcasts for months, aiming at the French- speaking voters there. The Western tour revealed that money, organization and the split between former Social Credit leader Robert Thompson and Mr. Caouette in the mid- 1960s are the main problems for the federal party's Western wing. 8 BALL POOL TOURNAMENT SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1st, P.M.

At times, Mr. Caouclte ap- peared to be flying solo, with his Ottawa office unaware of lo- cal arrangements. It wns o far cry from earlier days when Western Canada was the seat of Social Credit power, 15 members in 1953, 19 in 1957, none after the John D i e I e n Conservative sweep of 1958 and then Real Caouette's emergence nation- ally in 1962 with 28 Quebec members and two each from Alberta and B.C. NOW A TORY The Western wing was wiped out in 1965 and Mr. Thompson, after switching to the Con- servatives several years ago, is running again for that party in B.C. Mr. Caouelte said in Kam- loops, B.C., that he may have about to conduct his federal campaign. Federal organizers have been finding it difficult getting help from provincial Social Credi leagues in Alberta and British Columbia, they say. One B.C. organizer said prl vately he has had trouble over coming prejudice among prc- v i n c i a 1 Scocial Crediter against Mr. Caouette because is a French-Canadian. Mr. Caouette went out of his ay to counteract such feeling y stressing his stand for I NITED Canada In campaign seeches. The main obstacle t itional unity was not bill Dualism but economic argu ents between the nd the federal government, h dd. ANGUAGE GRANTS He said he is opposed to Ion g federal public servants I am a second language or fac ssing their jobs. He proposes grants to provincial govern lents for education in the off :pl languages. These views were greetei warmly by audiences and que oners on radio open-line pn rams in western Canada. The Alberta branch of th ederal party displayed mor figor than the B.C. organ zation. Publicly and private! Uberta party officials appea etermined to defeat Co ervatives, no doubt because he provincial Conservative vi ory in 1971. The B.C. wing may be figh ng greater odds.

RGANIZEHS HOPEFUL But some B.C. party organ ers also say they see a resur ence of the federal party cent weeks following the pro- election in August. In Alberta hopes are ejt- ressed of taking Palliser, a eat captured by Conservative :an Schumacher by nearly 00 votes in 1968. There was no ocial Credit candidate then. B.C. organizers mention irce to six seats, but stipulate nly Esquimalt-Saanich and 'raser Valley East. Esquimalt- aanich is a Victoria riding. A Caouetle rally there drew 200 In n 800-seat auditorium. The Saskatchewan and Mani- oba organizations do not talk jbout winning seats. Both ap- more concerned with find- n'g candidates to contest all idings. Grit program farmers claims Hamilton No food price study, Aiidras says OTTAWA (CP) The federal prices and Incomes commission carried out no special study on food prices, the office of Con- sumer Affairs Minister Ancjras says. Neither was any such study submitted ot the government, said a statement issued in reac- tion to charges made Wednes- day by Conservative Leader Sianfield in British Columbia. Mr. Stanlield said the Liberal government is keeping secret a report on food prices in Can- ada. its wheat stocks prices prevailing Reds would alter election processes VANCOUVER (CP) Wil-l Ham Kashtan, leafcr of the Communist party of Canada, said in an Interview here that a Communist government would work for proportional representation in the House o! Commons. He said his party would not alter basic election processes but would try to make them more democratic. 'We would try to ensure that a community with people, for example, could not elect as many representatives as one with be said. A Communist government would nationalize all natural re- source industries and financial Institutions and at election time would put forward a four-year plan for economic development. Canada wouldn't have the problems of Russia or China in converting to Communism, Mr, Kashtan said, since Canada al ready has the wealth and skilled labor nessary to ensure a good standard of living for all. He claimed that free enter- prise no longer exists In Can- ada, but has been replaced by a system of "state monopoly LABOR CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE.

Western wheat farmers are ruefully watching world wheat prices show a "fantastic climb. Alvin Hamilton says the policies of the Wheat Board "forced on the farmer" has cost Canadians Mr. Hamilton is seeking re- election in the Qu'Appelle Moose Mountain constituency in Saskatchewan. He said western farmers un- fortunately are unable to bene- fit from the sharp rise in wheat prices because the Wheat Board has already sold most of at the low earlier this year. The board has now been "caught short" and has little wheat left to sell. Had it not been for the LIFT program it would have had large stocks of wheat still available which could have been sold at the much higher prices now in effect. But the Trudeau government's LIFT program In which Lang "tin- kered" with the farmers' grow- ing plans took to acres out of production. "It has cost the farmers dearly to have Lang interfering with their plans to grow said Mr. Hamilton, He denounced Lang and the Trudeau government for in- troducing the LIFT program which was designed to encour- age grain farmers to cut back sharply on wheat production Mr. Hamilton estimated It had cost the farmers 000 directly In lost wheat pro- duction which should had been available for sale at the soaring world wheat prices 1 In addition it cost the Cana- dian taxpayer paid out cf the federal treasury to farmers who put wheat land into summerfallow and grass, said Mr. Hamilton. Mr. Hamilton arrived at his estimate of as the cost to Canadians by calcu- lating that In lost income for the farmers was money that should have come into Canada and into the fann- ers' pockets. That money when plowed back into the econ- farmers are known as good three times when it finally shows up in the Gross National Product, he said. The former federal agricul- ture minister In the Diefenba- 1 ker government, said that Mr. Lang was telling western au- diences that the Wheat Board still has bushels an hand which could be sold. Mr. Hamilton said however that it is policy for the board to keep that amount on hand as a "vis- ible it does not like to have its supply on hand drop below that amount. Mr. Hamilton also charged that Mr. Lang, as the minister In charge of the Wheat Board, knew last Christmas that there would be a tremendous In- crease In the world demand for Wheat. He said wheat experts around the world were aware that the Russian winter crop was in trouble and that other crops were poor which coulc only result in a strong demand j for Canadian wheat. "But despite this information Canadian wheat was sold at 'fire sale' said Mr. Hamilton, "so the government could boast about the number of sales. With Canada running out of wheat for sale her customers, such as Russia and the Chi- nese, have had to turn to other sources to buy weath. They are buying large quantities from France and the United States at the rising prices. With tlie economy suffering a loss of according to Mr. Hamilton this could be translated into jobs on the basis of a job. The LIFT program was "eco- nomically and morally said Mr. Hamilton. He also re- called that three months before the program to cutback wheat production was announced by Lang, the Liberal minister of agriculture, Bud Olson, had at- tended the Food and Agricul- tural Organization in Rome.He had assured that international body that Canada would do ev- erything possible to keep up its wheat and other grains produc- tion.
