Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jerry Jjlana s A. E. CROSS "FOR CUSTOM FRAMING" PHONt The lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, April PAGES 17 TO RESTAURANT AND PANCAKE HOUSE IANQUET FACILITIES FOR 75 PEOfU HELP KEEP OUR CITY CLEAN Painters To Hold Conciliation Talks The Brotherhood of Painters Allied Trades, Local 533, will hold conciliation talks in tte provincial admiris Ira lien building, Lethbridge, April 2 and with money the main issue. Bill Harvey, chief negotiator for the union, will head a three- man committee, and Tony Bast, labor relations officer for the Alberta Construction Associa- tion are the principals. "We will try to bring the wage rale for the union in Leth- bridge as close as possible to the rest of the said Mr. Harvey. Littleshields' Hearing Set "There are some points re- garding fringe benefits thai will also be discused." Mr. Harvey said the trend in the labor movement is to prov- ince-wide agreements, "the Al- berta Decorating Council, made up of over 120 major painting contractors in Alberta, is push- ing for province-wide rates, apj since LeUibridge was just recently amalgamated with the union out of Calgary, there is more work to do in Lethbridge. He said November 1971 will be the first time the union will be able to wcrk towards this objective of a province-wide agreement. There are about 30 and six major contractors af- fecled by the conciliation in Lethbridge. Everett Turner, union presi- dent from Calgary, will attend the talks. ITS ABOUT THAT GARBAGE CAN-Two city garbage collectors manfully empty a dinosaur-size can into a nor- mal sanitation and waste truck, apparently in ignorance of the printed notice, "please use regulation size garbage cans." This picture was taken before the city decided to have garbage tagged for about five civic sins, including use of improper garbage can. Actually it's a case ot semantics. What may not be regulation for Lethbridge is just the cat's whiskers for a Super Jet or Expo 76 or a federal-provincial conference. Anyway, the picture is an example of trick photography, this being that day for the unexpected, April Fools. 'Down Union Says Lethbridge Teacher Union Measures Pushed By Teachers Preliminary hearing in the case of Edward Gordon Little- shields, 60, of the Blood Indian teserve, charged with attempt- ed murder has been tentatively set for April 24 in Caruston.

Bail was set at cash and property and if the ac- cused can raise this bail, he will be released from custody to appear at the preliminary hearing.
