Dr C D. college says some people were of the misunderstanding that the money was being used specifically to buy gifts for a Christmas party for the children of the faculty The Christmas party is for the children of all the college including the he explains have some people here who are just above the minimum and couldn't afford to attend the Christmas party with their children if the party wasn't subsidized. Dr. Stewart claims It would be to the faculty to pay for the gifts and food for their children but it may be a bit too much to ask a member of the college staff to pay the full especially it he had three or four children and was near the minimum wage The parents in past years were asked to contribute for a gift for each of their children under the age of 12. They also paid 25 cents for each member ot the family attending the party to cover the cost of food The faculty wives the party found that gifts for the children would cost per child this year instead of 00 when they priced them at a local department store. Because the association felt it could not add a charge for lood in addition to the 50 charge for it asked the governors to contribute toward the party. are concerned that perhaps we would create a burden on parents to demand the gift money plus an increased amount for lunch as Beverley president of the faculty wives wrote in a letter to the board of governors There was no denying of the lact that of the taxpayers money was being used to sup- port a Christmas party for the of the Lethbridge Com- munity College.

A more comprehensive policy is needed because of a trend toward an increased number of major tours by local schools to national and international destinations The proposed policy revi- sion suggests any tour of a dis- tance greater than 150 miles from Lethbndge or that re- quires overnight accommoda- tion should be considered a major educational tour. The proposed policy would make it compulsory for prin- cipals to notify and seek per- mission from the superinten- dent of schools for any tour his school may wish to embark on written statements of permission must be received by the school from all the parents of children par- ticipating in the tour. Teachers acting as super- visors on the tours should not suffer loss of salary and the cost of the tour would be the responsibility of the school and those it is suggested in the proposed policy Trustees will again be asked tonight to support the annual Lethbridge Regional Science Fair which is to be held March 23 and 24 in the Exhibition Pavilion Last year the public school board contributed Dr O P. says the fair serves to stimulate interest in science projects and activities among public school students.

BLY Herald Staff Writer Contracts with Alberta's Treasury Branches are ap- parently now considered legally binding as the result of an Alberta Supreme court rul- ing in Lethbridge last week declaring provincial involve- ment in banking con- stitutional. The Treasury Branch was awarded its full claim of about as well as court after a successful suit against Kenneth Long. Mr. Long's liability to the Treasury Branch arose out of a personal guarantee given by him while an officer and shareholder of Bowns Agricultural Wholesale Ltd. One defence raised by Mr. Long's lawyers. Steve Denecky and Robert was that the Treasury Branch could not enforce the guarantee against Mr. Long because it was carrying on a banking business contrary to the British North America Act J V. H. Milvain. chief justice of the trial division of the Alberta Supreme said the constitutional ques- tion did not have to be con- sidered. Chief Justice Milvain said the circumstances of the case were governed by by the judgments render- ed by the appellate division of the Alberta Supreme Court and by the Supreme Court of Canada in the case of Breckenndge Speedway Ltd. vs Reginam The majority judgment of both courts in this case held that it was not necessary to decide whether the province had acted beyond its authority when the Treasury Branch was established. It is not open to a who has obtained substantial benefits under a to complain that it was beyond the power of a party who bestowed the benefits to make such a the chief justice said. It would not be equitable or just to award a case on this he said. The Breckenridge case in- volved money actually receiv- ed but Mr. Chief Justice Mil- vain applied the reasoning of the case to the guarantee given by Mr. Long. The chief justice indicated iie would not rule the legisla- tion creating the Treasury Branch unconstitutional in any case. His statement is not binding on other counts but could influence similar cases. The Long case involved a capital loan secured by mor- tage'on the Bown property. Mr Long's solicitors argued that an agreement concerning the clearing up of another loan Oi 3uOut 6Hu6u Long's obligation to the Treasury Branch. Ronald A. solicitor for the Treasury held that the agree- ment did not void Mr Long's guarantee. Chief Justice Mil- vain agreed with Mr Jacob- saying that if the agree- ment had voided the such an important point would have clearly been stated. The defence also disputed about m taxes and legal fees which the Treasury Branch had paid out. Part of this expense arose from defending a foreclosure action by a third party which held a second mortgage on the property. Mr. Jacobson said the Treasury Branch had found it necessary to protect its and that Mr. Long's guarantee made him liable for the expenses in- curred Chief Justice Milvain agreed with this and awarded the case to the plaintiff. The case emphasizes the responsibility of a person who guarantees a a local lawyer pointed out. A person should not sign a loan guarantee until he fully appreciates what could happen if the loan is not he said. Where person has signed a guarantee and finds himself obligated to clear the he should do so as soon as the lawyer said. additional ex- penses could easily be added to the original obligation.
