Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 2, 1970 AW budget recommended service projects seek funds Delegates representing tlirce local public servtrj projects presented requests for financial assistance Tuesday to the ad- visory committee of the Leth- bridge preventive social ser- vices. The committee recommended the brief presented by AID, the Advice, Information and Direc- tion centre that has been opera- ting in Southminster United Church, be taken to city coun- cil for approval. ATD's presentation included Iffll budget requirements of 000. If approved by council dur- ing its 1971 budget delibera- tions, and by the provincial de- partment of social develop- ment, these costs would be split between the two govern- ments, with the city paving 20 per cent. Since its inception in July, 1969 AID has functioned pri- marily as an information refer- ral service, supplying liaison between the needs of people in the community and those agen- cies able to be of assistance. Over 920 calls were handled by AID in a 12 month period end the number has increased each month. The project has functioned until now on donations and vol- unteer help. The needed funds would be used primarily for a full time volunteer services co ordinator, to link up the volunteer projects in the city. A budget request by the Lethbridge Society for Meals on Wheels was tabled by the committee, pending the re- ceipt of the group's financial statement to the end of Decem- ber. Alderman C. W. Chiehester, city council representative on the advisory committee, told the meals on wheels group it would be imperative to present a complete financial account to council when seeking its ap- proval for funds. The committee was told the group's financial position at the present time was quite good and it should be able to carry on until April, the beginning of the provincial government's fis- cal year. Meals on wheels has been this number has been projected to reach 60 next year. There is one paid employee; the program functions primari- ly on volunteers help. Also tabled by the committee was a request for support from the committee for a half way house for girls. Total budget for this project was estimated at for the first year. The only one of the three pro- supplying hot meals to about 20 senior citizens each day and jects not yet in operation, the half-way house came in for some discussion by (lie advisory com- mittee on how it should be struc- tured. Chairman Dr. Bob Elliott suggested the half way house committee should begin with a smaller, less structured plan and allow the project to grow around the needs of those who would be served by the facility. Ottawa 6stingy? says Gundlock Lethbridge MP Deane Gund- lock has accused the federal government of being "pretty darn stingy" in its recently- announced increases of old-age pensions. Mr. Gundlock, in a telephone interview from Ottawa, said the pensions should have been raised "considerably more" than the increase announced last week in the government's white paper on income secur- ity. The basic pension, payable to all Canadians at 65 years of age, has been beefed up this year by a ?4.58 cost-of- living supplement. ___ Ski slopes said excellent Southern Alberta ski enthu- siasts will be able to hit the slopes at Fernie's Snow Valley and Pincher Creek's West Cas- tle ski resorts this weekend. Officials at both resorts re- The white paper suggests the basic income should be an increase of The pension will no longer be tied to a cost-of-living factor, a suggestion which Lethbridge MLA Jack Landeryou said is completely "unrealistic." "Even if the basic pension was put at and wasn't tied to the cost-of-living, the pension would be eaten up in no time." The supplemental pension, based on the recipient's in- come, would increase from about to for a mar- ried couple under the new pro- posals. Mr. Gundlock said the sup- plement is also not enough to provide the elderly with the kind of living they deserve. He said rents have increased in advance of the announce- ment of pension increases and that would give just the bare necessities and "not the amenities" to which older Ca- nadians are entitled. 'I've seen young peoole, strong enough to work, sitting around all day, picking up wel- fare cheques and in some Aid. Chiehester and several other committee members questioned the need for the proposed three full time coun- cilors. Half way home committee chairman Dave Rogers agreed that changes in the over-all concept could be made and that a primary reason for meeting with the advisory committee was to get opinions on how to improve their presentation to city council and get ideas for positive changes in their plans. Although the committee said the type of person who would use the half way house had not been definitely set out, it was envisioned as being basi- cally a rehabilitation centre for homeless women or 'girls in some type of serious trouble. It was their view the house would cost the taxpayer less money than sending girls to the women's section of the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional In- stitution. old settled snow and 12 inches of new snow.

Irrigation with sewage effluent being done in southern Alberta By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer Preliminary experiments Bus- ing sewage effluent for irriga- tion have proved satisfactory, says Dave Graveland, of water resources branch, Alberta de- it of agriculture in Leth- idge. However, he says, the real proof will be in crop quality and yields in the years ahead. Several southern Alberta com- munities, Taber, Yauxhall, Gra- num, and Redcliff, have used or are studying the use of wa- ter re utilization through irri- gation. It appears the process, UJJ.C Every needed in safety plan The Canadian Highway Safety Council is again spon- soring safe driving week. It be- gan Dec. 1.

They were remanded until Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. Donald Alfred Fazio, 21, Richard Barry Clark, 20, both formerly of Lethbridge arid Gerald Ray Hamer, 20, were arrested one irile west of Leth- bridge in a car in what RCMP described as a routine traffic check. The three were released af- ter entering into a recog- nizance bond in each case. Blood clinic gets 159 pints There were 159 pints of blood donated with 174 persons at- tending the Tuesday night clinic of the Lethbridge Red Cross blood donors clinic in the Civic Sports Centre. Officials of the clinic said this is a good turn-out and hope donors will keep up the pace, destrians that each must do his share in the safety program. Inspector William West of the city police force said a nation's well-being is usually guaged by the amount of security enjoy- ed by the citizens. One of the major threats to our population is the senseless killing and manning which continues to take place on the country's streets and highways, he said. The problem is serious and must be solved, Inspt. West said. However, we cannot ex- pect any single individual, group or government to accom- plish this alone. Total partici- pation is needed by all. It is the hope of the Leth- bridge city police department that every citizen with a sense of responsibility will take it upon himself to support the council and the police depart- ment in safe driving week, he said. Council meets toiiiglit at in addition to improving crop yields, could aid pollution con- trol. Crop yields in greenhouse tests were boosted by as much as 98 per cent with the use of sewage water compared with regular irrigation water. Taber has recently construct- ed a 10-15 foot deep 40-acre sew- age lagoon which will provide sewage irrigation water for about 500 acres of aiiaifa this summer. Bent Madsen, works superin- tendent for the town, said there are no problems foreseen in the system which will han- dle about two thirds of the Police arbitration to start Meetings of an arbitration board to settle the contract dis- pute between the Lethbridge Police Commission and the Lethbridge Police Association are scheduled for Thursday and Friday. Representatives to the board were named by both sides in October and Dr. Ken Pugh of Edmonton was appointed chair- man late last month. The dispute went to arbitra- tion when a Sept. 30 concilia- tion board recommendation was rejected by the commis- sion. The board's report would have meant a 15.8 per cent in- crease for the 51 members of the police association.

There are laws prohibiting the use of sew- age irrigation on crops which may be eaten raw. Ted Law r e n c e, engineering director for the city of L e t h- bridge, says the possibilities oi sewage irrigation for Leth- bridge have been looked at. but were discarded because of the lack of irrigable crop land ad- jacent to the city. Another problem would be the size of lagoon necessary to handle sewage from Lethbridge. The process involves the pip- ing of raw or partly treated sewrage to a lagoon. The solid wastes are allowed to settle, and the liquid effluent and sus- pended organic matter is pump- ed by conventional irrigation equipment, onto the field. Mr. Graveland said the main concern of irrigating with sew- age effluent is its potential ef- fects on soil and Biological Oxygen Demand He said most of the organic matter and nutrients from the sewage would be beneficial to soil, but singled out sodium as one chemical which could be harmful. He believes plants would util- ize most of the nutrients phos- phorus, nitrogen and potassium in their growth cycle. Sodium, a chemical known to clog soil and inhibit plant growth may not dissipate. Sodium is found naturally in some Alberta soil, and is used by some potato pro- cessing plants in southern Al- berta. Mr. Gravsland adds that us- ing sewage for irrigation, de- spite a limited number of po- tential hazards, still appears to be a good method of sewage dis- posal, and may be better in some instances than a second- ary sewage plant which re- moves a lirrjted amount of un- desired chemicals. "It is somelliing we will have to watch closely, but it may of- fer a solution for quite a few years." Research on the subject is be- ing conducted by Mr. Grave- land and Reg Milne, scientist dealing with soil salinity and drainage at the Ixjthbridge Re- search Station.
