Tde city got 18 calls this weekend alons of catch basin covers removed, Mr. Temple said.

Douglas Roche, of Parliament for Edmonton Strathcona. told a meeting of Pensioners Concerned (Ed- monton) that halting "run- away government" is of the utmost importance. "Not only has the federal budget tripled in the past 10 years, it is going to be in- creased by 17 per cent billion in this fiscal year said Mr. Roche. "The numbsr of federal civil ser- Certified Dental Motnomc f CLIFF BUCK, BLACK DENTAL IABH MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

"The federal government and the provinces have just concluded the opening round of a joint review of Canada's social security he said. "Much as we need a review of the income security system, there is a more ur- gent priority to halt runaway government in this country. "E we do not halt govern- ment growth, the tax and particularly the income tax ii going to break the backs of the Canadian peo- ple." Mr. Roche cited unemploy- ment and inflation as two major crises and said the federal government is not solving either of them. "It is trying to hold the country together rath a bunch of bandaids instead cf taking firm action to cut personal and corporate taxes, create incentive and investment and halt inflation by wage and price controls. "In this framawork I am not in favor of adding to the bureaucracy of the federal government by instituting a department of the aged, which many pensioners vvouM like." Mr. Roche said he believes senior citizens have not re- ceived economic justice and urged them to continue "their political mobilization to put pressure on the gov- ernment." "At the same time, we should be careful abaut fur- ther segregating the aged just as we do not want to compartmentalize other ma- jor groups, such as women or youth." be said. Provincial Health Minister Neil Crawford told the pen- sioners the is looking at ways to ease their drug-purchase problems. He said the possibility of removing the fee, which senior citizens are expected to pay each year tiefore they can be reimbursed for their drug purchases, has been discussed by the government iiid "it is on the top of our list." Removing the fee would pave the way for druggists billing Blue Cross directly for 80 per cent of the drug cost and having the pension- er pay the remaining 20 per cent at the time if purchase. Mr. Crawford promised the pensioners he would look into complaints that old-age home rents are much higher in Alberta than in British Co- lumbia or Manitoba. "As well. I would like to see us get very quickly to the point where older people will be able to keep their basic such as a house or farm, and still receive assis- he said.

Gordon Laing of Ciares- hclm, outgoing president of the family flying group, said a show of hands following an information d i s cussion indi- cated a definite opposition to ra passed marketing by the Canadian Wheat Board. Bob Simmons, vice pres- ident in charge of raw mate- rials for Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd. in Lethbridge. pointed out sev- eral assumptions for the group which would be valid if the entire marketing of rspeseed was under the con- trol of the government mar- keting body. He told about 190 fly- Ing farmers, wives and chil- dren that crushing plants likely wouldn't be able to op- erate under the control of the wheat board if rapeseed were to be handled similarly to wheat and barley. He said the crushing plants must tight controls en the seed they process to assure a quality product. If the ssed had to be pur- chased through a mass gath- ering system, the quality couldn't-be sssured, he said. Mr. Simmons said the prin- ciple of "making everybody equal'' wo-jld likely continue to bs followed by the wheat board if it was able to con- trol the marketing of rape- seed. The government now sells a large portion of the coun- try's rapsseed but many farmers are able to contract the sale of rapssscd with crushing plants and get a higher return or. delivery. Mr. Simmons said an aver- aging price system as used for the marketing of wheat and barley by the wheat Jward is gojd for the mental- ly fczy farmer.

In a brief presented today to Labor Minister Bert Ho- hol, the Alberta School Trus- tees' Association said it is ne- cessary for a majority of all employees concerned to ap- prove, by ballot, any strike intentions. Under amendments to the Labor Act, only a majority of those voting could be con- sidered a basis for strike ac- tion for a total employee membership. "We are concerned that the public welfare isn't jeop- ardized by legislative changes that don't recognize the special concerns of edu- cation. to be aware of the penalties o be aware of the penalties liable to be suffered by the voting public by ill-consider- ed changes to the ASTA president Harald Gunderson said. The ASTA brief also seeks clarification of a Labor Act requirement that all parties of a bargaining group must remain part of that group until settlement is reached in any dispute. "To permit otherwise is to encourage whip saw action by labor negotiators. It is un- fair to employers in that it may permit drop-out from the employer group without giving the same privilege to the labor trustees say. nest Pass General Hospital. Balirmore Coroner F. S.
