Booze prices going up EDMONTON (CP) Alberta drinkers will feel it in the pocket book as well as the central nervous system when they have to pay more for their wine and spirits at the end of the month. A spokesman for the Alberta Liquor Control Board said Thursday the board does not know how much the prices will increase by as the distilleries and wineries are pushing their prices up to meet higher costs for cartons, bottles and labor. It was this increase that will be passed on in the province's liquor stores, he said. Increases will become effective dur- ing the next couple of months as the more expensive new stock is put on the shelves, he said.

City council pressure made builders sweat CALGARY (CP) Educa- tion Minister Lou Hyndman said Thursday he wants to increase by 12 to 14 per cent the provincial government funding to school boards for local capital construction pro- jects. The increase is designed to meet rapidly rising construc- tion costs and is not a move to ease tight guidelines the province now imposes on boards to limit new building starts, he said in an interview The minister said he plans to ask his cabinet colleagues to approve the funding increase because costs of both labor and materials have been climbing at "an un- precedented rate" in Alberta. The Calgary board of education's chief architect, Jack Smart, welcomed Mr. Hyndman's statement, saying building costs of local projects have definitely been rising significantly. The province now subsidizes local construction at different levels for portable classroom units.
