Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, April 29, 1974 Gas co-ops want gov't to live up to contract It was the unanimous opinion of 14 Southern Alberta gas co-operatives attending a meeting in Lethbridge Friday that the government should pay all costs of installing gas lines above The representatives of the co-ops attending a meeting of the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-operatives agreed farmers should not have to pay anything over the figure areed upon in a contract between farmers and the provincial government. The contract states the farmers shall pay and the government shall pay towards the cost of installing a gas line. At the time the contract was signed it was thought would cover the cost of installing a gas line. Increased costs of materials have sent costs spiralling up to a range between and according to a statement made in the legislature Friday by Ray Speaker (SC Little Roy Ferran, minister of telephones and utilities, said the government was not going to increase its assistance to farmers and that even escalating costs did not change the fact farmers are well-off when they switch to gas. Mr. Speaker and L. E. Buckwell (SC Fort Macleod) attended the co-op meeting held at the Lethbridge Community College. Verbal abuse 'should be banned9 Student treatment policy proposed Physical and verbal abuse of students for the purpose of discipline will, along with the strap, be abolished from public schools, if the student discipline policy being proposed to the school board Tuesday receives approval. The proposed policy was drafted by public school administrators in response to requests by teachers, principals and parents for a clearer definition of what the school board meant when it banned corporal punishment in December. Shaking a student, pulling a student's hair or ear, slapping or striking a student, and hitting a student with any object held or thrown are all forbidden as is use of the strap under the proposed policy. Also forbidden is verbal abuse such as name calling, use of sarcasm, unfavorable personal references and attempts to belittle a student publicly. The proposed policy also suggests teachers will be expected to establish reasonable limits to the Trustees will peruse school project bids Public school trustees will be presented with four bids Tuesday for the construction of the addition to the Gilbert Paterson School.

Ed Snyder says a controller at a small airport can sit with little to do for an hour, then have several aircraft wanting to land at once. And the controller's job is to get them all landed safely, with no crashes or collisions. There have been no recent crashes at Lethbridge, but there have been some scared controllers. The Ministry of Transport, which is responsible for air traffic control, lists three main objectives for traffic control at airports. These are to prevent collisions between aircraft, to prevent collisions between aircraft and obstructions on the gound and to maintain safe and orderly traffic flow. At Lethbridge Airport, this is all done from a third-storey tower cab one-quarter mile south of the centre of the airport. The controllers are responsible for a cylindrical piece of air with a radius of 10 nautical miles from the airport centre and extending to an altitude of feet, feet above ground level. Mr. Snyder says all aircraft landing at or taking off from Lethbridge, or passing through the control zone, contact the tower. The tower gives clearance for landings and take-offs by visual flight rules he says. But since Lethbridge has no radar, clearance for movements under instrument flight rules (IFR) is obtained by a direct, telephone link between! Lethbridge tower and Calgary terminal. Controller Roland Pauiette says two daily shifts are run at the tower between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. When the tower is shut down, the aeradio office in the terminal building advises pilots of conditions at the airport. AA flights are told the height of the cloud base, the wind speed and direction, which runway to use and their sequence number if more than one movement is taking place. One controller can handle the tower, he says. But if two are on duty, one handles ground control and the other air control. The air controller provides radio control service to aircraft taking off, landing or flying through the control zone. The ground controller controls aircraft, ground vehicles and equipment on the runways and taxiways, and keeps the log. Mr. Pauiette says all radio telephone equipment is connected in series in case of failure. There is a battery powered emergency radio, and if all else fails, a hand- held signal lamp. Mr. Snyder says radio receivers and telephone switching equipment, located on the main floor of the tower building, is serviced by technicians from the MOT CPCN Telecommunications 'and Alberta Government Telephones. Transmitters are located in the terminal building. Also in the terminal are recorders which record all conversations, automatically inserting the time on the tape. The tower can transmit on five frequencies and monitors six. Although Lethbridge airport is without radar, it does have an instrument landing system.Controller Kevin Kurtz says the system uses two radio beams to guide pilots to one of the field's runways. The localizer beam is transmitted down the middle of the runway, and the reception on the aircraft radio tells a pilot if he is to the left or right of the proper course. The narrow glide path signal is sent out 2.5 degrees off the horizon and only one degree wide. This gives the right angle. Both receivers in the aircraft are connected to one dial, with two needles which must be centered, one vertically and the other horizontally, for a correct landing. Navy League observes week The three navy league cadei corps, in Lethbridge will be observing Canada Navy League Week today until May 5 with special sunset ceremonies. Guest inspections will be carried out today until Wednesday at the Navy League Headquarters and from Wednesday until Saturday at City Hall at 8 p.m. The week will wrap-up Sunday with a parade to the cenotaph in the Gait Gardens Mr. Kurtz says the non- directional automatic direction-finding beacon is located directly in line with the localizer aircraft using the instrument landing system to home on it. Mr. Snyder says these navigational aids are the responsibility of the radio office. For efficient service, the controllers must work closely with both the aeradio office and the weather office, he says. Lethbridge normally has six controllers but the current staff is 10. There are three controllers awaiting transfer, and one trainee in the final phase of on-the-job training. The MOT training program for air traffic controllers takes about two years. It begins with orientation in a regional training school, followed by experience in an operational unit. Trainees then take a thorough, five- Landing Time Air flight lands at Lethbridge's Kenyon Field airport. Left, the air controllers' tower. month course at the Air Services Training School in Ottawa. After the formal course, three to four months are spent in on-the-job training at a control tower. At the end of this period, successful graduates receive an air traffic controller's license. Even after this, says Mr. Snyder, controllers must pass an annual medical check-up and an annual refresher course. Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL ILD6.
