LETHBRIDGE AUCTIONEERS TED NEWBY KEITH ERDMANN Lie. 41 Lie. 458 The protesters, sonic of whom claim to have been with- out any form of income for three to six weeks, say the PEP program is a political manoeuvre to "glorify the poli- ticians in power." Bob Hahn, a PEP coordinator based in Calgary said, some administrative delays hove oc- cured in sending out cheques. However, he said the cheques lo LethbriCge are usually only a day or two late. The problem occurs when PEP administrative offices in Edmonton ship educational al- lowance cheques destined for Lethbridge to Calgary. The cheques are sent from Calgary to Lethbridge, thereby causing a day or two delay. Mr. Hahn said some students may have gone as long as three weeks after beginning classes without any allowance money. This happened becjus; some courses began between pay pe- riods and the students were forced to wait up to three weeks before receiving any funds. Students are provided with educational every two weeks. Susie Kato, an LCC PEP counsellor said some students may also be under ths iniscon ception that the allowance pa> ments began on the dste registration instead of the day the course Mr. Halm sympathized with the students experiencing finan rial difficulty and said an ef fort would be made to bav the Edmonton PEP offi.--: issu cheques earlier so tiiat the; would arrive on time. Transportation delavs result ing from the Calgary stopove will be if the mone for LCC students is issued ear lier, he The latest batch of cheques expected Monday, will definili ly reach the students b Wednesday, Mr. Hahn prom ised. PEP courses at LCC rang in length frtm a few weeks t 16 weeks and began in mid January with the last coura beginning Feb. 7. Members of the Lethbridge nd District Exhibition Asso- nation will meet with govern- nent officials in Edmonton Thursday to try to lans for a new all-purpose wilding for Lethbridge. Stan Tiffin, president of the xhibitkm board, and Andy An- rews, manager of the associa- on, expect to have news to re- lort Friday about a new build- ng at the exhibition grounds. This meeting is expected to the last one before the board is able to take advant- age of a million fed- ral government fund for long firm loans for agricultural ex- abition associations. Tiie program, announced by Agriculture Minister Bud Olsce. is for the purpose of stimulating the economy trough the construction of multi-purpose buildings which can be used year-round for a wide range of community ac- ivities. MX. Olson said: "These buildings will be associated vith exhibition activities, but o be eligible must be of a type tat can be used throughout the year for UK benefit of the community." An e x h i b i lion association Thursday Ray B u r g e s s and Bruc'het, representatives of the federal department of youth, mil be in the city Thursday. The men represent the de- partment responsible for the formation of the Opportunities for Youth program. Anyone who wishes to speak with Mr. Burgess or Mr. Bruchet may contact Al Brewer of the dcoarlment of culture, youth and recreal'OD at 328-9686. PEP alloivance in designed to cover only board, lodging program, the province budge Under the Province's Prior- ity Employment Program, stu- dents taking advantage of job- training courses are paid an educational allowance with which to pay for board and lodging. However the allowance was not designed to assist students making payments on debts al- ready incurred. Those with payments to make were expected, on their rritTi initiative, to approach creditors and make new ar- rangements. PEP counsellors were not in- structed to question student ap- plicants' financial status. When incorporating the PEP Taber committee wants hog plant rules clearly stated The Taber Industrial Devel- opment Committee has called for (he Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board and the pro- rincial government to "lay down the rules of the game" so the proposed million hog processing plant can be estab- lished. Ross Gibb, industrial co-or- dinntor for Taber, said in a telephone interview this mor- ning that the Taber committee has a general feeling that there is a lot. of stalling going on toward the establishment of the hog slaughtering and pro- cessing plant. Mr. Gibb said the committee feels the marketing board is changing the rules. "Every time Rick (Fernando E. Ricafort, director and tech- nical manager of North Ameri- can Integrated Food Process- ing Co. Ltd., principles in the project) comes up with some- thing, it seems like there are new rules. "We suggest that the board is going beyond the power that is given it in the legislation which established the board." Mr. Gibb said there appears to lw a lack of communication between the government and the marketing on one hand and Mr. Ricafort on the other. He said it appears that the agricultural end is finding all the faults, implying that all the (owns want the business ven- ture. ed for a maximum of sti dents enrolling. Its educational allowanc structure under the prograir is: per week for a sin, person living with his paren or guardians; per week fo a single person living on h own; per week for an dividual with one depcnden per week for an individu with two dependents; pe week for an individual wit three or more dependents. Students who have left the home to attend a PEP cours elsewhere are provided w an additional per week cover expenses.

Phone 328-3388 Says environment minister Alberta has few pollution problems By RUDY HAUGESEDER Statf Writer Alberta docs not ahve a ser- us pollution problem, En- ronment Minister Bill Yurko aid today. Several anti-pollution groups ave urged the development of provincial environment bill r rights, he said. However, because of the legal nature of such a bill, Al- berta will wait for some other North American province or state to incorporate such a bill and see what happens. Alberta does not have to be the forerunner for such legisla- tion because its pollution prob- lems are not nearly as severe may borrow up to 90 per cent f the cost of an approved pro- ect. The loans will be for up o 30 years. Apparently 30 associations cross Canada have expressed interest in the program since announcement. Petition action criticized Lethbridge city council has been blasted for its action on a citizen's petition requesting an overhead crosswalk at the in- tersection of Mayor Magrath Drive and 5th Ave. S. Council voted at a recenl meeting to provMc police con stables to man the presen crosswalk during periods whei youngsters are going to ane from school. The petition expressed con cern for the safety of young children who must cross the heavily-travelled artery during peak traffic periods. Separate school board trus tee, E. S. Vaselenak charges that city council has lost sigh of priorities. "The city said it couldn't si ford to build an overheat crosswalk, which is for the safety of our children, bu then they turn around and de- cide to put a new lounge ir city hall to entertain vis said Mr. Vaselenak. "If the representatives of th< taxpayers of this city can af ford a new lounge, then thej must be able to atford to pro tect our children.'1 Trustee Paul Matisz said ii cost was the only factor in the city's decision, "then I think something is wrong." The estimated cost of an overhead crosswa'k was in the area of Tax panel tonight Tax reform as it affects busi- ness and property income, pro- fessionals, companies and shareholders is the topic of a panel discussion tonight. The session, second of a hvo- part series sponsored by the :nstitute of Chartered Accpun- ants of Alberta, Lethbridge and District Chartered Accoun- :ants Association and the Chamber of Commerce, starts with a reception at p.m. at Sven Ericksen's Family Res- ;aurant.

Butter production dotvn Butler production in Alberta for December 1971 decreased six per cent from the same pe- riod in 1970 with pounds made. All regions in the province reported decreases in produc- tion. as those elsewhere, he said in telephone interview with the Herald. Dave Balfour, co ordinator of Pollution Alberta, Tuesday "blew the whistle" on government inac- tion regarding the bill of rights. About nine anti pollution groups in the province had tended together to write up a bill of rights and present it to the provincial cabinet for con- sideration, he said. Premier Peter Lougheed ad- vised the group to present the bill to Environment Minister Yurko. Following discussions with Mr. Yurko, the minister prom- ised to study the bill and com- ment. The bill was presented late in November and nothing has been heard by anyone about it since, Mr. Balfour said. Developed by anti pollution groups ranging from northern Alberta throughout the rest of the province, the bill was also scrutinized by lawyers before it was presented to Mr. Yurko. The five page bill states: "The citizens of Alberta have the right to demand and re- ceive complete information, consultation, and public hear- ings on matters of government policy, action or inaction which might affect the quality of our environment, before any deci- sion is taken on such a matter." It continued: "It is the right of every citizen to sue or ake other appropriate legal action against any public or private agency or individual which he feels has infringed upon his environmental right to clean air, pure waicr, peace and quiet, and access to na- ture, on his private property. "It is the right of each citi- zen, whether or not he has suf- fered personal damage, to sue or take other appropriate legal action against any public or private agency or individual which he believes has infringed upon the public's right" to a clean environment. The bill also said pollution monitoring data obtained by the government should become public knowledge immediately.
