Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Mortgage, rent subsidy scheme On TORONTO (CP) Barney Danson, federal minister of ur- ban affairs, said Wednesday the federal government will pay mortgage and rental subsidies of up to ISO a month to low-and middle-income families. Legislation covering the subsidies and other measures aimed to ease the burden of high mortgage interest rates and improve the flow of private mortgage funds probably will be introduced in Parliament before Christmas, he told a seminar on mortgages organized by Seneca College. Mr. Danson said later in an interview that in Toronto an an- nual income of between and would be considered low income and middle income would mean a maximum of The plan was an attempt to bridge the gap between rates mortgage lenders must charge and the rates middle-and low- income borrowers can afford. First-mortgage rates were about 12 per cent in 1973 and 1974 "In practice, this would mean that a private lender would pro- vide funds at the lowest current market rate to families eligible under the AHOP program, but CMHC (Central Mortage and Housing Corp.) would subsidize the borrowers up to a max- imum of annually."

The ideal members will be concerned with educ- ational opportunities for students, and will have the ability to participate in objective decision making with regards to appeals submitted by students. The Appeals Committee has been established by the Board to insure that all students are treated fairly, with respect to their individual circumstances, in the awarding of financial as- sistance under the various acts and regulations admm'Stered by the Board. The appointed candidates will serve as members of a three (3) member committee, which in- cludes a student representative appointed by the local institution.

For sky-gazers in Western Canada, the partial eclipse will be in progress at sunrise Friday. People have become blinded while watching solar eclipses and Lome Avery, research officer at the astrophysics branch of the National Research Council, says the safest way to watch an eclipse is through pro- tective dark glass like that on a welder's helmet. However, the meteor showers, or shooting stars, may be watched without fear of eye damage and astronomers say about 50 will be visible each hour as the meteors burn up in the earth's at- mosphere. The meteors are expected to be clearly visible in the western sky, weather permitting, for the dim light of a new moon will not be enough to blot them out. Thursday, Dtcwnbw 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Hostel squabble erupts EDMONTON (CP) -Anof- ficial of the Boyle Street Co- Op in downtown Edmonton Wednesday the provincial men's hostel is forcing men out of the hostel with orders to get jobs. Alice Hanson said 18 men have approached the co-op because they have no money and no place to stay after be- ing refused admittance to the shelter. "They come to us and what are we going to Hostel director Thomas De Vries said the charges are un- true. Men were being barred from the hostel only if drunk or under the influence of drugs, because the hostel has no staff or facilities for such men. Mrs. Hanson said some men are ejected before breakfast and must look for work on empty stomachs. "The hostel denies it... but I've had at least 15 men tell me it's she said. A director of student legal services, which operates an office in the Community Ser- vices Co-Op, said law students working with the agency have been approached by about four men who say they have been ejected. The director said the legal aid organization had succeed- ed in having some men restored to the hostel. The men had denied allegations they were intoxicated. Mr. De Vries said hostel staff have been trying to stimulate residents to find work but no member has ask- ed that men be refused ac- commodation if they do not find employment. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC DIITKICH Certified Mtchtnic 303 5th Strwt South MUtcalf Building PHONE 326-7684 Western Canada said doomed REGINA (CP) Attorney- General Roy Romanow of Sas- katchewan appealed to the federal government Wednes- day to get transportation reform moving again instead of allowing railways to increase freight rates that dis- criminate against the West. Speaking in the legislature on a government motion criticizing federal plans to let a freeze on certain rate increases expire Jan. 1, Mr Romanow said traditional transportation policy cannot be allowed to continue. "Western Canada under this type of transportation policy is doomed to remain an economic colony of Central Canada to be used and abused by the he said. Although Mr. Romanow complained that the federal government is not consulting the provinces sufficiently on transportation policy and has not answered provincial questions on the freight-rate situation, he said he still has hope that federal Transport Minister Jean Marchand will take appropriate measures.
