Canada's largest Tax Seivice With Over 6000 Offices in Notth America to 9; 9 to 5 NO APPOINTMENT NtCESSARY trustees can increase their salaries should be withdrawn, says George Brosseau. chairman of the Edmonton separate school board. The legislation would require a vote on salary increases at three consecutive school board meetings. "No other municipal body in Alberta is required to follow such a said Mr. Brosseau that the legislation implies school boards "are inferior to other legally constituted and elected municipal bodies." Trustees now can change their salaries, through a simple motion at a public meeting.' The current controversy arose' out of an incident in which Calgary public school trustees voted (themselves 50-per-cent raises. Also opposing the proposed legislation is Art Bunney of Foresthurg, vice president of Ihe Alberta school trustees' association. "Trustees are encouraged to consider themselves responsible and autonomous, and then he (Education Minister Lou Hyndman) proposes a regulation like this." said Mr. Bunney. "It's disgusting."

Phone Arts sovereignty claim is challenged OTTAWA (CP) Quebec restated its claim to cultural sovereignty Friday at a conference on the arts, and was immediately told that diversity of public financing strengthens -the artistic community. Gaston Harvey, director- general of Quebec's provincial department of cultural affairs, told the Canadian Conference of the Arts (CCA) annual meeting that his department should have sole control over policy and the granting of money to the arts in Quebec. He asked that federal funds spent on the arts be repatriated to the province. Andre Fortier, director of the Canada Council, the federal government's principal arts subsidizing agency, said that one strength of the arts in Canada U the number of sources of funds to which artists and cultural organizations can turn. He said that a single source of funds-such as the Quebec department wished to be within Quebec an absurdity when arts development in Canada is still in an embryonic stage. Consultation among agencies is necessary, but the best way to encourage the arts organizations is to have them vie for funds from a number of sources. The meeting brought together representatives of the provinces and federal agencies concerned with the arts, including the CBC, the National Arts Centre, the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, and the cultural affairs division of the external affairs department. EXPRESSES CONCERN G. Hamilton Southam, director-general of the arts centre, said he was concerned about what be called creeping nationalism. It was only the second-rate artists in Canada who demanded more protection from foreign competition. "Our .first-rate artists are too busy .fulfilling their engagements to attend meetings like he said. The arts centre last year had had 927 performances and other events in its theatres and salons, and 80 per cent of them were Canadian. People who pay at the box office want excellence, whether it is Canadian or foreign, Mr. Southam added. He said one of the marvels is the frequency with which the excellence and the best performances turn out to be Canadian. Works Minuter Dube, whose department is the country's biggest buyer of large-scale sculptures and art works to decorate federal public buildings, was keynote speaker for the conference.' He said Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner will submit plans to cabinet in .a few weeks .for a national, cultural festival to accompany the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. He also announced that Charles Gagnon of Montreal has won a works department commission for a 40-foot oil-on-canvas mural in memory of the late Lester B Pearson. It will be installed before the end of this year in the new headquarters building of the external affairs department. All the provinces 'reported progreM. to various on to the Ontario said it Is toe of the Ontario Council by 90 per cent, and British Columbia said it will spend up to three per cent of the cost of new public buildings on art to decorate them.

In 1877 a message from the NWMP detachment at Fort Saskatchewan was wired to Walker in Battltford, Saskatchewan. That was just three years after the long, gruelling inarch west had brought the scarlet riders to Alberta. The major was impressed by the potential of tele- communications. So impressed that later, when he left the force and settled in Alberta, he built Fort Calgary's first telephone system. It was designed to serve his sawmill and, in 1882, consisted of an exchange and a dozen telephones. These were forerunners of the huge province-wide system that serves Alberta today.
