S. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA SEE US FOR AIL YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Buses holiday season By RIC SWIHAHT Staff Writer Tilings are busting out all over for the Lofhbriclgo Grey- hound Bus Lines depot this fes- tive season, with slaff increases and new scheduling necessary to cope with the added work. William Beatlie, depot mana- ger, said business, both passen- ger and express, has increased by three time during Decem- ber, compared with November. There are now five daily re- turn trips to Edmonton origin- from the city. The spe- cial executive coach leaves Lethbridge each morning at a.m. and six arid a half hours later arrives in the capi- tal city. Passengers who go to the end of the line do not have to leave their seats during the trip. The other buses leave at a.m., a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. This special schedule will be in effect until Jan. 15. In addition, the a.m. and 2 p.m. buses are non-stop ex- presses to Calgary. The executive coach leaves Edmonton at p.m., arriv- ing back in the city at p.m. Mr. Bcaltie said there is only one bus into and one out of the city each day which carry ex- press freight, and during this Christmas season, both have been packed every time. Storage space is congested to the point the employees don't know where to put it, he said. "We have had to increase our express room staff to three full- time he said. "We are using all the space available, even the garage." He said the passenger service from the city is just as busy. "Mrs. Seeley is in the ticket booth from a.m. to 10 a.m. and she never gets a chance to leave. "It has run this way the whole holiday season." Mr. Beattie said road condi- tions haven't helped or hamper- ed business. He said many peo- ple are "just plain afraid" of the intoxicated driver during the holiday season. "They would rather use the bus than face the dangers from the intoxicated driver, and this is a big part of the increased passenger he said. "This is especially true be- tween Lethbridge and Edmon- ton." He said the runs wilh connec- tions in Fort Macleod to Van- couver are exceptionally busy this season. There are two buses which connect for the coast, at a.m. and 2 p.m. The 2 p.m. bus arrives in Vancouver at a.m. the next day and is a favorite with many passengers. Another reason for the in- creased pcssenger use is the lack of a train dayliner service. Mr. Beattie said even some people with CPR passes are now using the bus. In addition, he said, the ex- ecutive coach connects with east west CMP passenger trains in Edmonton. The bus even stops at the Edmonton railway station.

Tuxis parliament suggests increase in Canada's foreign aid spending Canada's foreign aid policies were high on the agenda of the 52nd session of the Tuxis and Older Boys' Parliament as it convened for its second sitting Monday at the Univers- ity of Lethbridge. The model parliament con- forms to House of Commons procedure but positions are provincial, except when nation- al concerns are dealt with. The parliament feels that the lack of parties simplifies the sessions and also assists great- ly in objective discussions and decisions. City council talks budget City council and the adminis- tration got together today to hash out the budget for 1072.

PHONE 327-2822 the was After a short question period, there followed a discussion oi an amendment to the speech from tiie throne. The amend- ment, which questioned government's leadership defeated. The first resolution of the sitting was concerned with Ca- nadian policy for foreign aid. It was suggested that Can- ada's economic aid to under- developed nations be increased to one per cent of the Gross National Product, to be ad- ministered by i n t ernatiinal agencies. Tuxis said a national orga- nization would be biased and not in the interest of the world in general. The cost of redis- tribution by a national agency was estimated at three times the financial aid. In opposition to this, delegate Don Teeuwsen questioned why Canada was sending money to other countries at all when il was needed to resolve such in- ternal problems as slums and unemployment. He said that to feed the world population, complete world co- operation was essential and he could not foresee this. In referring to the amount spent by Canada on defence, director of visitations Michael Check-land asked the House "If Canada can spend that much on destroying people, why can't we spend that mucih on helping Neil Hughes, minister of ar- chives, said he considered for- eign aid to he the best way for Canada to exercise her role in CAMM'S AFTER-CHRISTMAS I HOLIDAY SALE! 3 DAYS ONLY-DECEMBER 29th-30th-31st HURRY FOR THESE NEW YEAR BARGAINS AIL TEEN CHUNKY HEELS GOING AT LESS THAN Vl PRICE (5 ALL LOW CUT SNOW BOOTS AFTER.CHRISTMAS SALE 9.99 ALL DRESSY SNOW BOOTS 20% OFF Wet Looks, Leathers, and Sucdci, ALL TEENAGE FLATS Regular to 15.00 AFTER.CHRISTMAS SALE FAMOUS JOYCE SHOES Short and Discontinued Lines.

He felt that in the last 40 years Canadians have been completely without for- eign policy. The discussion of the foreign aid question was continued in the Tuxis third sitting Monday evening. The resolution was passed with a vote of 50 in favor and 20 opposed. Topics for discussion in the next few days include Cana- dian nationalism, AlCan, com- pulsory joh corps and legaliza- tion of marijuana. The resolutions to be dis- cussed are drawn up in the fall during a meeting of the Tuxis government and opposi- tion. Any decisions or opinions ex- pressed during the annual ses- sions which tire parliament feel are pertinent are passed on to the Alberta government for consideration.

J. G. Davidson, an Edir.on- ton chartered accountant, was appointed receiver when the provincial Treasury Branch, to which Purity owes million, called its loan.

The five plants employ 160 persons a.nd have an annual payroll of 51.1 million. New policies were adopted by Purity prior to going into receivership on tte recommen- dations of a management, con- sulting firm which had been working with the company for three months, Mr. Davidson said. The company definitely will be carrying on, he said, and H plans to increase volume b y obtaining additional accounts. No great changes are planned immediately, such as consolidation, and there will be no further cutbacks, Mr. David- son said. Unsecured creditors had their accounts frozen at the Dec, 17 level and have been guaranteed payment on all sup- plies and sendees provided after that date. When the company gets back on its' feet, payments are to be made to creditors whose ac- counts were frozen on Dec. 17. The majority of suppliers have agreed to tli3 scheme, Mr. Davidson said. A reappraisal of the success of the company iinoer receiver- ship is to be made in sb: months. There will be no problems with staff, Mr. Davidson said. Salaries, wages and staff bene- fits are priority and will be maintained. The Treasury Branch lias se- cured sufficient assets to cover ilw Purity debenture, Mr. Davidson said.
