Officers in Alberta's correc- tional institutes have reaffirm- ed a decision to strike Aug. 25 if demands for wage increases are not met. They are willing to strike even (hough Attorney-Genera] Edgar Gerhart has threatened to fire anv officer who leaves his job. Bob Donahue, a public velaiions officer with the Al- berta Civil Seivice Association, said Wednesday. Mr. Donahue said the officers are concerned that a "really ugly situation'' could develop in provincial jails if the gov- ernment orders the RCMT or the army to take the place of striking "staff. The Civil Service Association has asked for collective bar- gaining rights for the officers nnd a 4.7 per cent wage in- crease this year. The officers received two-year salary in-1 creases in May following a me- diation board decision. Mr. Gerhart said the de- mands amount to a "crass ulti- matum'' issued when an elec- tion campaign is in progress. A total of 70 officers of the Lelhbridge Correctional Insti- tute met Wednesday night and voiced full support of the as- sociation's grievances. A brief of grievances sub- milted to Mr. Gerhart was read at the meeting. Officers are seeking a retro- active salary increase from Jan. 1, 1971 and a six per cent increase effective Jan. 1, 1972. The current starting salary is 5-170 per month and, after five years, increases to S566 per month.

Mr. Hinman said the provincial government must continue lo search for markets for agricul- tural products, but it is not ad- visable to try to push a prod- uct on the world market at any price. As a result, farmers must try to anticipate what, product will sell. Mr. Hinman noted it is diffi- cult for young people to estab- lish themselves on a farm be- cause of the cost of land, the "cost-price squeeze." and a j shortage of farm labor. j However, he questioned the I wisdom of subsidizing young farmers just to keep them on the land i "Should we give money to i young people to buy land lhal will not he asked rhetorically.

Forcing welfare statism on people erodes the independent family unit, he said, adding: "Anyone who gets welfare should be willing to do any- thing he can do. and should be required to work." However, anyone legitimate- ly in need should be cared for. Mr. Hinman said the govern- ment should hold more ref- erendums on costly projects, so the people will have a greater voice in how lljeir dollars are spent. Replying to questions, he said he considers a sales tax the fairest [orm of tax, al- though he would support it only if it replaced another tax and did not mean an additional tax burden.

An Open Letter to the Premier Dear Mr. Strom, The olher day you promised Calgary and Ed- monton four new recreational centres each. Now as a ciliien c! Icthbridge that makes me mnd. We've tried without any success lo persuade your Social Credit government to assist us with the development of cul- tural and recreational facilities worthy of this city. Cnlgary and Edmonton got their Jubilee Auditoriums. What did get? When the Lelhbridge Arena wos destroyed by fire earlier this year Ihe City appealed without success to your government for assistance in providing a new Facility for winter sports. The City has had lo go il alone, with the taxpayers paying Ihe shot. Now, with an election to win, you are promising Calgary and Edmonton four complete recreational centres apiece. And what about tclhbridge? Out in the cold again. Time for a change, Mr. Premier. Time for a change. Yours truly, DICK GRAY, Progressive Conservative candidate, lelhbridgo West.
