Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, December 17, 1971 Trudeau ones struction OTTAWA (CP) - Prime Min-1 ister Trucleau jumped on the | Conservatives Thursday with ] accusations that they have been obstructing the tax bill debate without ever taking a real stand on the bill itself. In his first speech during Commons debate since last Way, Mr. Trudeau called the ingredients of the Conservative tax policy: "... The text of paid advertisements by affluent interest groups, seasoned with the latest statistics from some mail-in pressure campaign, then cooked for two hours in the heat of the weekly Conservative caucus meeting." Mr. Trudeau said that at least the New Democratic Party had taken a stand on the bill. The NDP stand has been that 30-DAY FORECAST-Central Canada can expect above normal temperatures and precipitation in the next month according to the 30-day forecast of the United States Weather Bureau. Western Canada can expect below normal temperatures coupled with moderate precipitation while the east can expect below normal temperatures and moderate precipitation. Students unhappy with school strike CALGARY (CP) - Righ school students in Canmore, Alta., are unhappy with a teachers' strike in the Bow Valley School Authorities Association. The students, among 12,000 who have been out of classrooms in seven districts since the strike began Nov. 29, have published a two-page news- 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX paper called the Flinky Tribune. Included in the paper are several classified ads outlining the students' feelings. "L o s t -o n e education. If found please return to students of Bow Valley school district." "For sale: One school, slightly used, complete with students. Teachers not included." "If you think this paper ts funny, wait until you see the exam results." The 613 striking teachers cover the counties of Wheatland and Mountain View, the school districts of Drumheller Valley and Three Hills, and local boards in Banff, Can-more and Hanna. the government itself sold out to affluent interest groups on the tax bill. The prime minister said tha main Conservative complaint about the bill is that'they had not had enough time to study it. In a strongly partisan speech, Mr. Trudeau said the Conservative complaint that they could not study the bill during the summer was an admission of their own inefficiency. Copies of the bill had been distributed to all MPs and the opposition research staffs July 12. STRAYED FROM TOPIC The Commons debate itself had gone on for 49 days. During that time Conservative members had often wandered aimlessly on other topics. The Conservatives, Mr. Trudeau said, had shown the essence of fiscal irresponsibility by saying they were in favor of cutting taxes for some peonle but they were opposed to increasing them for others. Despite all the criticism, he said, the bill was filled with "relevance, fairness, growth incentives." The national debate on tax change had been going on since 1962 when the Diefenbaker government had appointed a royal commission on taxation. "The only thing in Canada that has dragged on as slowly in recent years is the heavy water plant started by the leader of the Opposition when he was premier of Nova Scotia." The Glace Bay heavy water plant is considered a political embarassment as it never has come into operation because of technical problems, despite the expenditure of millions of dollars since it was inaugurated. UNFAIR TO STANFIELD Robert McCleave (PC-Halifax-East Hants) said it was unfair to blame the heavy water situation on Mr. Stanfield. Liberals such as Treasury Board President C. M. Drury, Privy Council President Allan MacEachen. and Gerald Regan, now premier of Nova Scotia, had been the first to adorn themselves with halos and lau-Tels when an agreement was signed this fall to put federal funds into the stalled project. As for the tax debate, he said it didn't matter whether the bill was debated for 50 days or 5C0 days, as long as it was dealt with properly. But the Commons, he said, had only dealt with about one-third of the bill, leaving the problems that would result to future Parliaments.

ESTABLISHED SINCE 1954 Plan change in grade 12 exam marks EDMONTON (CP - Schools will assume a greater role in determining the final marks of Grade 12 students, the Alberta education department announced today. Effective next June, departmental examinations will form the basis for half a student's mark in all matriculation subjects, with the other half being determined by the school. This now is the practice in all subjects but pysics, chemistry and mathematics, in which fir nal marks have been awarded solely on the result of departmental examinations. Endorsing the change, Education Minister Lou Hyndman said that "since learning is an individual process, it is appropriate that teachers in the schools play a responsible role in evaluating their individual students." oratory sadd the serial number on the .32-calibre Smith and Wesson revolver had been obliterated but after tracing the butt he found one- H8506. Corporal Dickinson was testi fying at the non-capital murder trial of Keith Elgie Latta, 43, of Kingston, Ont.

Army worms damage paid to farmers EDMONTON (CP) -Cheques totalling about $250,-000 are being mailed to 5,000 Alberta farmers whose rape-seed crops were damaged by Bertha army worms last summer. Joe Gurba, head of the pest control branch of the provincial department of agriculture, said Thursday farmers' claims are based on $1 per acre that has been treateH. with the chemical lannate to fight the infestation. Total cost of treatment amounted to $3.50 an acre per application. A quarter-of-a-million acres, mostly in an area around Edmonton from Bonnyville to Provost, were affected. Payments of $1 an acre are also being processed for crops in the CaJgary-Drumheller area treated last summer to counter a beet web worm infection, he said. These cheques will total about. $50,000. Cheques worth- more than $500,000 are being sent out by the Saskatchewan government to fanners in that province whose crops were invaded by the army worm. An intensive monitoring program is planned by both provinces next year to count moths and give warning against another army worm outbreak. Cup of Milk fund donors Mrs. M.

Corporal Dickinson said he made tests of powder residue patterns found on the green and white shirt worn by Mr. Neville Juna 13. He said patterns in the centre back of the shirt were compatible with patterns fixed from the Smith and Wesson revolver at a range of from six to 18 inches. Patterns found on the left shoulder of the shirt were compatible with ammunition fired from the revolver at a range of from 15 to 24 inches and patterns on the left chest and sleeve were compatible with those fired from test ammunition at a range of from three to seven feet. Wednesday, two women testified they knew of no attempts to blackmail Mr. Neville as a result of their relationships with him. Crown; Counsel W. J. Stainton had told the court in his opening statements Monday that Latta had told friends on his arrival in Edmonton in June that he was here to help Mr. Neville who he said, was being blackmailed for his philandering with women. Maria Ban and Valerie Lane were asked by Mr. Stainton whether they had ever blackmailed Mr. Neville, whether either of them had a grudge against him, or whether they had known of a blackmail attempt by anyone else. Both replied vehemently, "no" to each question. The trial continues.

Facts ivanted in resignation of principal INNISFAIL (CP) - The Students Union Association at the Innisfail High School has accused the Red Deer County School Board of hiding facts behind the announced resignation of principal Joe Stein. Jim H o u seman, students union vice - president, said Thursday the union wants the board to explain what Mr. Stein had done wrong. He said the only explanation given was that the principal had overspent on the budget. Board chairman Patricia Blakely said the board is not hiding anything. She said in an interview the board passed a unanimous motion Oct. 20 that Mr. Stein tender his resignation. She said Mr. Stem did not follow office procedures in ordering and purchasing equipment with the result he exceeded his budget by more than $7,000.
