Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, April 12, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Reporters seek answers to ban By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) The issue is unlikely to reshape the coun- try's destiny, but the way re- porters were pouncing on politi- cians Tuesday it could have been the start of' the third world war. There were persistent ques- tions, running in the corridors, conflicting answers, massive misinterpretations and the greatest display of confusion since the last constitutional con- ference. At was members of the Cana- dian Parliamentary Press Gal- lery were to be banned from the government lobby. That's the long room behind the Liberal also shared by the 13 Social Credit where members sit and chat, plan strategy or watch tele- vision. There have been rumblings for some time about newspaper men overhearing conversations. And recently a cabinet minister was quoted as telling off a back-bencher in terms not taught in your average Sunday- school. In the government lobby re- porters now are restricted to ore end of the room. The oppo- sition lobby is wide open. Jean-Marc Poliquin, Radio- Canada corresondent and presi- dent of the press gallery, was informed by Speaker Lucien La- moureux that he received a let- ter from the Liberal caucus saying its executive had de- cided to ban the press, secretar- ies, executive assistants and deputy ministers from the lobby. Mr. Poliquin approached Lib- eral whip Tom Lefebvre (Pon- tiac) and asked whether such a decision had been made. "Oh, it has been made some time Mr. Poliquin re- ported him as saving. He asked Mr. Lefebvre for a copy of the letter sent to the Speaker and was told it was personal and j confidential. Soon after the House met, Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield rose on a question of privilege to say he had just been informed of the decision. ''I just want to say I hope no attempt will be made by any- body to prevent us in our party from having the privilege of meeting members of the gallery in our lobby Outshining plows A snowmobiler mods his way between stalled snowplows on Milwaukee's North- west Side Monday night.

And his northern customers are elated. They're so happy with the product, they're talk- ing about installing wall-to- wa'l broadloom. Jeremy Jenkins' firm, Shel- ter Ltd, built a children's camp using seven imitation igloos of wood coated with polyurethane foam. The structure caught the mr. steam PHONE 328-2853 Mr. Steam Carpet Cleaning Ltd. Domestic Commercial Institutional My, ALL WORK GUARANTEED eye of Eskimos at Baker Lake on Hudson Bay. They decided it was just what they needed for meetings of thi Arctic Christian Fellowship. It would be bigger than any- thing they could build of snow and wouldn't melt in the sum- mer. The Eskimos collected do- nations and along with a 000 loan decided on a tailor- made dome 40 feet in diame- ter and 20 feet high, with 10 triangular windows. Jenkins flew up to supervise Its assembly. The Eskimos pronounced it perfect, he said, except for the lack of broadloom. Word spread across the Ar- ctic and Jenkins since has had several other orders and inquiries. New job rating system started in civil service EDMONTON (CP) A new jerfornuance rating system, nore closely hinged to objective job evaluation, is being intro- duced in the Alberta Civil Ser- vice, public service commission- er Keith Robertson said today. Mr. Robertson said the sys- em. will place less emphasis on such traditional performance guidelines as attitude and de- corum in favor of job attitude and potential. Mr. Robertson's remarks fol- ow the annual report of om- budsman George McClellan, who said good reports about civil servants are sometimes cancelled by "one secret, damning letter." The report, tabled in the legislature Tues- day, quotes government offi- cials who had told the ombuds- man the performance ratings are "useless" in the manner they are drawn up. The ombudsman said a num- ber of rating reports do not pre- sent s. true picture of the em- ployee. Mr Robertson did not say when the provnce's civil servants would all be covered by the new job-evaluation sys- tem, but said a full account would be revealed when he tab- les his annual report in the leg- islature. While declining comment on the ombudsman's specific charges, Mr. Robertson said there have been occasions where supervisors were disci- plined for not revealing to in- dividual civil servants all the written material in their files. The new system was welcom- ed by Bill Broad, president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta. "But It Is damn slow coming. It seenus they have been talking about It for years." A COLORFUL DUO.
