Phono 326-6161 "The Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop in Lelhbridge" FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Government kills local tourist centre J3y ROB TURNER Staff Wrilcr A proposal set forth earlier this month to consLrucl a pro- vincial informalion centre in Lelhbridge has been killed by Lhc Alberta Government Tiavcl Bureau. In an Aug. 13 lellcr to Ihe Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Southern Alberta, Doug Evans, director of the AGTB said construction of Ihe centre in Lhe city would be "inop- propi'iate." Frank Smith, manager of TCASA said in an interview, however, he believed Ihe action to be a case ot the government "picking up ils marbles and go- ing home" when it didn't get its own way. The government had wanted to build the centre near the Japanese gardens, Leth- bridge's main louiist attrac- tion, but apparently ran into op- position from both the gardens' society and the city. The letter announcing the de- cision not to build said "at this time we will not be establish- ing an information centre in your city." "As the growth of Lelhbridge continues, perhaps this subject may be re-examined." Mr. Smith said the construc- tion of a second tourist hut on Mayor Magrath Drive would have been "superfluous." A move by the government to take over the Henderson Lake hut was never followed through. He said he believed the de- sire to build a third hut in Lclh- brrdge was motivated by "po- litical" reasons and was an ef- fort by the government to tell tlu: people, "see what we've done." He criticized the "Make tracks to Albeita" as an attempt at billboards the same thing and said one director had talked to a tourist in Idaho who was perusing one of Lhe signs ana thought Alberta was "a town in British Columbia."

MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Marquis Hotel Building Phone 327-1515 Litter bears popular items The wide, toothy grin of "Al- berta Little Bear" will be dis- played all across the province soon if the popularity it has achieved in the last two continues into the future. The S47 garbage barrels pro- duced by the Travel and Con- vention Association of Southern Alberta as a non-profit project have been ordered by such di- verse groups as the Edmonton Public Library, a park near Hcd Deer, St. Paul and Coulls. A total of eight bears have been ordered so far. Three of the bears are already on dis- play in Claresholm where they are manufactured, Fort Mac- Icod and Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge. The psychology of "feeding a bear" is apparent when it is re- vealed that the one at Foil Macleod has to be emptied at least once a day now com- pared to the once or twice a week which its more conven- tional predecessor was emp- tied. STEEL RAIL ICEBERG-An old sleel rail protruding from the ground under the eighth support of Lethbridge's high-level bridge is not really significant until one learns that 36 feet of it are underground and (Is been there for 62 years. The rail was accidentally dropped about 130 feet from the brdige fop during its construction in 1909 by a worker, J .C. Hendrickson, now in his mid-90s, who returned from High River in July and found it still there. The impact of ihe rail on the ground all those years ago buried it until only four feet were (eft showing. Wilson Phofo Guards may strike Bargaining rights are major issue By LARKV BENNETT Staff Wrilcr The lack of bargaining rights is the major reason for the pro- posed Ai'g. 25 strike by mem- bers of the Alberta Association for Correctional officers.

The pay increase bad been reached by a provincial mediation board. "V.'hen the mediation board settlement WES he said, "the matter was taken before the provincial cabinet for consideration. The cabinet upheld the settlement and it was imposed on the association June 1." The imposed settlement meant an increase of from S180 to S240 per year for a grade 1 correctional officer in the first year. The increase would be about for the second year. The salary for a correctional officer (grade 1) currently starts at per month and in five years it increases to ?S34 per month. Mr. Ingoldsby said the asso- ciation was always able to bar- cial association. Lethbridge Provincial Jail Warder, J. L Fisher, slid a i strike by the association would create a major inconvenience because the majority of the jail staff belongs io the cssocia- tion. "This is the first time a prov- incial jail staff strike has ever been said Mr. In- goldsby, "but the staff of the Foothills General Hospital in Calgary once bad to threaten a strike when a provincial mediation board would not rec- ognize their association as a representative b a r g a i n ing unit."

It's in his constituency, who are: gratifying to see so much conducting a telephone cam-! interest, but it does take more paign for him. In the last two weeks of (lie campaign, he will concentrate heavily on press and media ad- vertising, and may step up the pace of his personal campaign- ing. The fear of socialism among the electorate is no longer a factor working against the New Democratic Party, according to Klaas (Charlie) Buijerl, NDP candidate in Lethbridgc West. In his campaigning for the Aug. .10 provincial election, Mr. Buijert says, "not even once have I heai'd anyone compare the NDP to Communism, or time Jlr. Buijert will also be able to increase his radio and press advertising in the last few days of the campaign, because of an unexpected influx of local con- tributions into NDP coffers. However, he will still be con- centrating on posters, leaflets and personal contact to get across the NDP message. People are more concerned and are asking more questions this year Mian was Ihe case in 19B7, Mr. Buijert says.
