Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE April Cards ton MD council plans summer road improvement program CARDSTON (Staff) Highway 5 will be realigned and paved this summer for about 12 miles from west of Magrath to west of Spring Coulee, the Cardston Municipal District council learned Wednesday. Councillors submitted their individual road programs to enable secretary-treasurer Roy Legge to work out the summer program. The MD has applied to purchase, through tenders asked by the provincial government, gallons of oil for its road oiling program. This will cost about total amount of the provincial government's road oiling grant Coun Shelton Ririe, anticipating a shortage, said, "We want to make application tor some more oil for ourselves right quick-like." Reeve Harold Jensen received a pledge from Nick ponomar of MP Crushing Ltd ot Magrath that gravel would be crushed for the MD if needed before June 15. Crushing is scheduled to begin June 15 for sure. Mr. Ponomar raised the price from 58 to 70 cents per yard for three-quarter-inch gravel. The MD agreed to the hike Rejected was a 20-cent increase to 90 cents for five- eights gravel "When I asked for a two- cent raise last year I didn't realize everything was going to go out of said Mr. Ponomar. He said welding rods alone cost him extra a day after having increased in cost by about 90-per-cent. He uses 80 to 100 pounds of rods a night Reeve Jensen noted about 20.000 tons of gravel is needed to start road work at Woolford. There is no gravel left at Mountain View and Spring Coulee. "If you are stuck and need about 10.000 yards for your oiling program. I will said Mr Ponomar "Just give me about lour days notice." Coun. Keith Olsen noted the contract expires this fall and suggested that next year the gravel crushing be put out to tender. Council was informed by the secretary that truck haul rates have been increased by more than 10-per-cent. They went trom 425 cents for the loading factor to 47 4 cents this vear. This means that cvcrv time a yard of gravel is dumped into a truck it costs the MD 47.4 cents to begin the lidul The yard per mile rate went from 10.4 cents last year to 116 cents this year.

"So we won't be able to do as much said the reeve. Mr. Legge noted that the haulage rates are up 11-per- cent, gravel has gone up 21- per-cent, gas and oil prices are up 10-per-cent and wages have gone up 10-per-cent. Council decided to make the annual public works tour next Wednesday. Coun. Ken Beswick of Spring Coulee reaffirmed that he wants a new bridge on a secondary road west of Spring Coulee because the one in use "isn't wide enough for the traffic A request for a bridge over the Milk River from Frank Hoyt of Del Bonita was rejected by council. Department officials told council it would cost with another tacked on tor road work. The province pays 75-per-cent of the bridge cost for a structure primarily designed for local convenience thus costs to the MD would be for the bridge and for the road. "What do you think about it asked the reeve. Answered Coun. Beswick: "I think it's ridiculous." Council decided sufficient funds are not available. Mr. Hoyt told The Herald he farms both sides of the river and has to take his machinery on a 15 to 20-mile haul from one area to the other. "I have a son starting school next fall. We have a cable car. That is how he is going to get across but it has broken down four or five times." Another bridge northwest of Welling was said to be in poor condition with replacement costs estimated to be Other bridges are available two miles upstream as well as down stream. Upgrading could not be justified. Coun. David Wilde of Welling said it will inconvenience some haulers to the local garbage dump when the structure fails. He couldn't see his way clear to go ahead with a new bridge. When a right-of-way is obtained from Jim Cook of Magrath, a highway and bridge will be realigned at the southeast quarter of section three, township five, range 22> southwest of Magrath. The department said, "this site has been inspected and the proposed realignment is acceptable to However, Mrs. W. B. Taylor of Magrath said it won't be acceptable to her or her son- in-law if it cuts through two of their fields and a feedlot. Coun. Shelton Ririe will negotiate with the people involved. A review A 72-inch culvert will be installed this year at the northeast quarter of section 32, township three, range 23 south of Spring Coulee. The department suggested a 20-foot timber span, in poor condition west, southwest of section 29, township four, range 23 southwest of Spring Coulee be abandoned. It is on a dirt trail that serves only as a local convenience to the highway. The department suggested a structure at the west of the northwest quarter of section 19, township 1, range 23 is in poor condition and replacement will be done this A huge nine-foot culvert is proposed for the west, southwest of section 18, township 2, range 27 southwest of Mountain View. The existing 20-foot timber span is in poor condition. It could put a resident out of water. The solution: provide a dugout while the machines are on location. Concert courts .monotony By PAT ORCHARD The University Choir, conducted by Lucien Needham and accompanied by Louise Chapman, performed the final concert of the season to an audience of about two hundred people at the Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday evening. The program was not exactly devised to avoid monotony, as the choir has performed most of these works at some time or another over the past six years. To be frank, they are not particularly interesting bo begin with, and first class performances would be needed to make them worthwhile listening to more than once. The evening began with Bach's Cantata "Awake thou wintry Although the singers had a lovely tone and commendable blend, it did not strike me that Mr. Needham lifted them much out of the run-of-the-mill deadpan manner into which so many Bach performances fall. Perhaps the earth awoke, but the choir failed to do so. Similarly, the character of the singing did not vary very much throughout the next two pieces, "Who is Sylvia'' and Jensen's "Love in However, there was some splendid full- toned singing in Roberton's "Mice and Leanne Kloppenborg, a piano student from the University of Lethbridge; interspersed the program by playing Chopin's Fantasie- Impromptu, op. 66, a Debussy Prelude, and Chopin's Etude op. 10 No. 12. Mrs. Kloppenborg did not capture the voluptuous atmosphere of the Debussy Prelude, nor did she have enough musical insight (as distinct from pianist capability) for the Chopin numbers. Every young pianist who performs Chopin and Debussy in recital invites comparison with many of the greatest pianists of the century, which is a little hard on a student, however gifted. Mrs. Kloppenborg is not yet concert material, but I do hope she will perform for us when she returns from her studies in Toronto. The choir went on to perform Vaughan Williams' Psalm 100. I had always though that Vaughan Williams' music was of the type that once savoured, never cloys. The choir proved me wrong. The performance conveyed something of the feeling of a countdown before their entries, and one found oneself in a state of nervous tension waiting for the performance to end. My reaction veered between "wow" and Alas, the inevitable "The fields abroad" by Mr. Needham. This little curiosity has already been hackneyed on numerous other occasions by the group, and obviously does not improve with practice. The next performance was the "Spanish love during which the singers cajoled their lovers to dance in bland, everyday fashion However, Roberton's "The Old Woman" was beautifully sung. Mrs. Kloppenborg then played Rachmaninoff's Tragic Prelude, op 32 No. 10 and Kabalevsky's Prelude op. 38 No. 24. The Kabalevsky performance was rather impressive. The evening concluded with Bach's "Awake us Lord and C. Wood's "0 thou the central orb" and Bairstow's "Sing ye to the With the exception of some unison singing in the final number, the performances were very broad brush throughout. With such a small choir, one cannot expect perfection, but surely a little enthusiasm and some works on a larger scale are not too much to ask from a choir of university origins After all, Mr. Needham does have some excellent voices at his disposal.

Mr Peta said the program proposal "scares me." John Boras, chairman, later echoed the sentiments. Trustee Paul Matisz said the school would be better off to develop programs that would keep students physically active rather than Teachers establish workshop fund ttRT STUDIO FICTW Eihibition ot DRAWINGS and PAINTINGS Joyce and Gary Slipper until April 30th 710 S AVE 5 UETHftftlDCE-AiTA HEINO DEEKEN Manager The local Alberta Teachers Association took a step Wednesday designed to improve the standard of education of Lethbridge students The ATA executive council IN CONCERT The Masters Touch from Calgary, Yatas Memorial Cantra Friday, April p.m. "Singing for the Master" BERGMAN'S Floor Coverings SALES AND INSTALLATIONS By DON BERGMAN Open Thursday Evening till 9 p.m. PHONE 328-0372 2716 12th Ave. S. agreed to establish a fund to provide more local teachers with the opportunity to participate in workshops that will improve the instructional process.

He says the additional funds would be supporting a project that is designed to get classroom teachers participating in professional development in service sessions. Moose Jaw reunion set Former residents of Moose Jaw, Sask., now living in Alberta, will hold a reunion in Calgary April 27 in the new Mount Royal College building.

McDonald, 231110 Ave. S However, concern was expressed that school boards may take advantage of the ATA's financial involvement in the project to drop their financial assistance to such in- service sessions.

"The physical fitness of school children is he claimed Trustee Ron Fabbi, the lone voice in favor of the program suggested it had merit But Mr. Peta countered the suggestion by pointing out that young people can know everything there is to know about gun safety and "still get careless with them." The proposed program would have been sponsored by the Shooting Federation of Canada. All materials, supply of guns and pellets would have been supplied by the federation. The cost of the school's affiliation with the federation would have been One of the main concerns of the trustees was that a student may accidently lose an eye or receive some other serious injury if another student became careless while handling one of the pellet guns The trustees earlfler approved a program that was more in line with the suggestion of one trustee that students should be taught how to make peace, not war. A family education program now offered in Edmonton separate schools was adopted by the local separate board Tuesday for its schools. The Edmonton program will be developed and modified to meet the needs of the local separate schools. The trustees also approved a series of in-service activities to take place at least once a month for teachers involved in the family life education program. The school board hopes to introduce the family life education program to its schools next fall. Certified Dantil Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BIN.
