Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, December 3, 1971 Teachers, trustees vow not to meet CALGARY {CP) - A contract dispute wliich has left 12.000 students in rural elemen-tarj' and secondary schools without classes for four days took on the appearance of a stalemate Thursday. Teachers and trustees in the Bow Valley negotiating area vowed not to negotiate until the other side changed its position. Both sides said their stands could not be compromised. During a 10-minute meeting Wednesday - the last time the sides got together - the Alberta Teachers' Association negotiators offered to drop a request that school boards pay 50 per cent of health care premiums if the boards would meet other demands. Representatives of the Alberta School Tnistees' Association turned down the offer and said tlie only thinj; left to be settled was the salary grid. Bain McDonald, executive director of the tiiistees association, said the school boards are tired "of being pushed and bullied around." "Trustees are sick of these teachers' ultimatums and they've finally drawn the line; they will consider the salary grid and that is it." Art Broomhall, anotlier trustee representative, said issues such as compassionate leave, pay for substitute teachers, pay for part years of training, sabbatical leave and compensation for working with handicapped childi-en, were settled Sept. 25. "These other things have just been brought back to trade off for more money on the salary scale." The trustees negotiating committee is to meet Sunday, Mr. Broomhall said, "but we will not make any commitment to meet with the teachers until we have heard that some changes have been made in the ATA position." William Casanova, ATA ne- $55,000 bail set for Fung in heroin case VANCOUVER (CP) - Bail was set at $55,000 cash Thursday for a Vancouver restaurant operator accused of selling dJiigs valued on the illicit market at $200,000 to an imder-cover RCMP officer and a U.S. Narcotics Bureau agent.

Hal-prin asked tliat Fung be denied bail as tlie imdercover agent from the U.S. had his life threatened during his dealings with a suspected drug supplier. gotiator, said the proposals on the issues other than salary and health care prem.vums were made by trustees but' the suggestions were rejected. "The teachers will not change their position." Mr. Casanova said the settlement is being held up by a difference of $40,000 in the two sides' positions. The strike of 613 teachers effects schools in the counties of Mountain View and Wheatland; the school divisions of Three Hills and Drumheller and local boards in Banff, Canmore and Hanna.

(C;P) -Lt.-Gov. E. John A, Hamum should use Iris "undoubted power" to ask for Premier Joseph Smallwood's resignation, Frank Moores, Progressive Conservative leader, said Thursday night. Mr. Moores, in reiterating Us party's claim to victory in the Oct. 28 Newfoundland election, said if Mr. Smallwood's Liberal government refused to resign the Ueutenant-govemor sliould "instruct" the premier to call the legislature into session. Adding further doubt about the liltelihood of any move by Lt.-Gov. Hamum was the presentation of a petition to the Newfoundland Supreme Court by the Liberals, claiming that St. Earbe South, one of 21 seats taken by the Conservatives, was aictually left vacant when a recount could not be completed because 105 ballots were missing. The Liberals won 20 seats in the election.

Yoimg Tories don't disagree with elders OTTAWA (CP) - Yoimg Progressive Conservatives gather here this weekend to draw up a policy program expected to create only a polite and muted confrontation at the senior party convention next week. About the only possibly con'-teotious issue at edtber convention may be foreign ownership and what to do about it, says Allan Pope, outgoing president of the Progressive Conservative Youth Federation. As for otlier disagreement with the senior delegates, "it's going to be philosophy more than anything else." The national party poli<^ convention opens Sunday, with main discussions sclieduled Monday and Tuesday. The youth may follow their past pti-actice and avoid making a stand on the issue of federalism and relations with Quebec. The economy, foreign affairs, the i-ole of women in society and la-ban affairs will be discussed. The youth cojiference organizers have commitments for ad-di'esses from Ontario Premier William Davis and New Brunswick Premier Richard Hatfield, as well as natiomal party Leader Robert Stanfield. The youth convention also will elect a new executive, with Sar-uia businessman Wayne Taylor and University of Manitoba student Len Domino now in the race tot, the presidency, , "Is it that this Liberal admin-istratioa has too much to fear from exposinre to the public of the facts concerning the present financial position of this province, of the facts concerning the additional mi'llions of dollars spent ... in attempting to win the election? "Of the facts concerning the huge deficit incurred this year, forecast to be $98 million but now is tens of millions of dollars in excess of that, of the fact that now at least $100 million has to be arranged to be bor-ro^ved on the bond markets of the world? . . . Record fees gasp for life in Commons OTTAWA (CP) - A government bill which would deny recardmg companies the right to charge radio broadcasters a fee for playing their records was approved by the (Commons justice commitee Thm-sday. The committee did not accept a proposal by Sound Recording Licences Ltd. which woidd allow record companies to charge iees for playing Canadian records only. Sound Recording licences, which represents 29 record manufacturers, opposed the leg. islation which would amend the Copyright Act. The bill returns to the CJommons for debate on third and fmal readmg. The bill would wipe out a recent decision by the copyright appeals board granting record firms the rigiht to collect fees for playing their records on radio stations. The Canadian Association of Broadcasters now is appealing the copyright ruling to the Federal Court. No nudes is good nudes CALGARY (CP) - The city is not yet ready fw dancing in the nude, Provmcial Judge F. A. Thurgood decided Thursday. He made the ruling in tlie case of Kelly Johnson, 22, who was charged with giving an inv moral pCTformance in a public theatre. She had danced, first topless then topless and bottomless, in a city cabaret Sept. 29. Miss Johnson of nearby Oko-toks was fined $50 and costs with the alternative of 30 days in jail if she did not pay by Dec. 17. Judge Thurgood said the case was without precedent in the city and he was unable to find any other case in Canada which involved dancing while completely nude. The defence will appeal and said Miss Johnson's performance was not obscene or immoral, that it did not tend to corrupt or deprave the general population and that she made no obscene gestures in the dance. Filth probe vague EDMONTON (CP) - Provincial government investigations of pollution problems in the Pmcher Creek - Drywood C^ek areas haven't been comprehensive enough, says a brief prepared by the University of Alberta's geography department. The brief has been presented to Environment Minister Bill Yurko. It says that government response to evidence on the effects of natural gas plants in the area has been "largely negative" in the past. In August 15 families of the district received .$700,000 from Shell Canada Ltd. and Gulf Canada Ltd. for pollution damage. The families had complained that sulphur dioxide and trace gases given off by the plants were affecting dhii-dren, pets and livestock. The dispute, was settled out of comt, but the brief says that 25 to 30 other families feel that the poUution problem is continuing "unabated." The brief recommends that the eaiergy resources commission board continue surveys of domestic water supplies and begin sampling material condensed on emission stacks at the gas plants. It also recommends that the meat of beef cattle raised in the area be tested. More studies are needed, said the brief, because it has not been possible to define the causes of the poor health of the people of the area. Kaiser workers on job SPARWOOD (IINS)-Kaiser Resources Ltd. employees, laid off a week while modifications to the Elkwater coal preparation plant were tied in, were called back to work this week. Work carried out will enable the plant to process its original planmed capacity of 1,400 tons per hour. A company spokesman said he is confident the modifications wili enable Kaiser to meet its coal delivery commitments to Japan. Planning for the extensive renovations was begun in October, 1970. The tie - in was scheduled for November. During the renovaitions about 20O construction men were employed. Rumors of future shut-downs ajid lay-offs have been refuted by the company in posted notices. Workers were not paid during last week's lay - offs. They had been given written notice of the lay - off and that they wouldn't be paid. Cup of Milk fund donors S.

Hon. Jim Poster last week announced receipt of a letter of resignation fi-om Leif Erickson, Calgary chartered accountant. The letter, according to Mr. Foster, gave two reasons: pressure of business, and a feeling that one year was not long enough to do a proper job. Mr. Erickson was appointed to the fuU-time post by the previous government about four months ago. He had a one-year contract. He was just getting into the peak of activity about one month ago when he was informed by the minister t h a t his continued tenure did not tit into the plans of the new government. Settlement terms, which ai-e not available, were negotiated prior to receipt of the resignation letter. In his letter Mr. Ericksen recommended a t h r e e-year term for his successor. Whether a successor will be appomted has not been stated. There is speculation in Edmonton that the Universities Commission and the Olleges Commission will be combined, and Mr. Erickson's resignation will facilitate the amalgamation. Contract ends CALGARY (CP) - Termina-tion of a contract tmder which Persona (3are Ltd. operated the single men's hostel is "no reflection" on the company, Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, said Tliursday. The Progressive Conservative government refused to renew the one-year contract when it expired Wednesday and the province resumed direct control of the hostel. There is other speculation that the new minister, with a new department dealing exclusively with the universities and colleges,,will take over Mr. Erickson's function Mmself. The Universities Commission has been the buffer between the government and the universities, apportioning both operating and capital funds to the universities. The Colleges Commission has a similar function with the several colleges in the province. Saskatchewan may be site of tractor plant TORONTO (CP) - Th� Ro-manlan government is negotiating with tlie Saskatchewan government for the construction of a $15 million tractor assembly plant in the province, a seminar on trade with Ctommunist countries was told Wednesday. Diunitru Dmescu, Romanian trade commissioner to Canada, said his country expects to reach an agreement with Sais-katchewan by the end of the year. Mr. Dinescu told the seminar, sponsored by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Toronto, that officials from the . state-owned Autotractor of Brasov are to amve in Saskatchewan next week. Negotiations might be completed at that time. Initial plans, he said, call for Autotractor to assemble tractors ui the range of 45, 70 and 100 horsepower. Eventually, the plant might add a line of farm implements to its production output. M:-. Dinescu said Autotractor has been selling tractors in five provmces for the last five years. Sales this year are ex-peoted to reach 800 with a value of about $3.5 million. GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES.
