And the lack o[ information, especially in the field of person al finances, is creating sonw misgivings among students. A delegation of students mostly married men visited the Herald Tuesday to complain that their PEP educational al- lowance cheques from Edmon- ton have been later than ex- pected; less than expected; or haven't been received yet. The men claimed the major- ity of the 733 PEP stndents en- roled at the Lethbridge Com- munity College were experienc- ing these problems. They said some students obtaining "emergency student loans" from the college to cover their expenses the cheques arrived. unlil HUMIDIFIERS C A SHEET METAL LTD.' 1709 2nd Ave. S. 32B-5973 CLIFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mochanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

The provincial government will pay of the total con- struction cost. The board decided to draft a bylaw for its Feb 9 meeting which would pave the way for the board to borrow the neces- sary funds to pay construction costs. The protesters, some 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 Halm, a PEP coordinator based in Calgary said, some administrative delays have oc- cured in sending out cheques. However, he said the cheques to 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 p.llowance money. This hanpened beeaus; some courses began between pay pe- riods and forced to weeks funds. the students wait up to three before receiving any Students are provided with educational all nvances every two weeks. Susie Kaiin, an LCC PEP counsellor said, some students may also he under th; iniscon ception that the allowance pay ments began on the date o registration instead o! the day the course Mr. Halm sympathized with the students experiencing finan- ef have tlie Edmonton PEP offc? issue rial difficulty and said fort would be made to cheques earlier so they would arrive on time. Transportation delavs result- ing from the Calgary will be eliminated if the moncj for LCC slucents is issued ear licr, he The la'.ett batch of cheques, expected Monday, will definite- ly reach the students by Wednesday, Mr. Hahn prom- ised. PEP courses at LCC range in length fnm a few weeks to 16 weeks and began in mid- January with the last course beginning Feb. 7. reps Youth here Thursday Ray Burgess and Bruchet, of the federal department of youth, will be in the city Thursday.

However the allowance was not designed to assist students making payments on debts al ready incurred. Those with payments1 to make were expected, on their n initiative, to approach creditors and make new ar- rangements. PEP counsellors were not in- structed to question student ap- plicants' financial status.

Phone 328-3388 Says environment minister Alberta has few pollution problems By RUDY HAUGESUDEn Staff IVritcr Alberta does not ahve a ser- ious pollution problem, En- vironment Minister Bill Yurko said today. Several anti-pollution groups have urged the development of a provincial environment bill or 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 Exhibition building sought by board Members of the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Asso- ciation will meet with govern- ment officials in Edmonton Thursday to try to plare? for a new all-purpose building for Lethbridge. Stan Tiffin, president of the exhibition board, and Andy An- drews, manager of the associa- tion, expect to have news to re- port Friday about a new build- ing at the exhibition grounds. This meeting is expected to be the last one before the board is able to take advant- age of a million fed- eral government fund for long term loans for agricultural ex- hibition associations. The program, announced by Agriculture Minister Bud Olson, is for the purpose of Stimulating the economy through the construction o{ multi-purpose buildings which can be used year-round for a wide range of community ac- tivities. Mr. Okon said: "These buildings will be associated with exhibition activities, but to be eligible must be of a type that can be used throughout the year for the benefit of the community." An e x h i h i tion association 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 recent meeting to provMc police con stables to man the present crosswalk during periods wtan youngsters are going to and 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 Ihat city council has lost sight of priorities. 'Tlie city ?aid it couldn't pi- ford to build an overhead crosswalk, which is for the safely of our children, but then they turn around and de- cide to put a new lounge in city hall to entertain vis- said Mr. Vaselenak. "If the representatives of the of this city can af- ;ord a new lounge, then they must be able to stlord to pro- ect our children.'1 Trustee Paul Matisz said i[ cost was the only factor in the city's decision, I t h i n I; something is wrong."

Dave Ballour, co ordinator of Pollution Alberta, Tuesday "blew the whistle" on government inac- tion regarding the hill of rights. About nine anti pollution groups in the province had landed 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 even' citizen to sue or take other appropriate legal action against any public or private agency or individual which he feels has infringed upon his environmental right to dean air, pure water, peace and quiet, and access to na- ture, on his private property. "It is the right of each citi- zen, whether or not ho has suf- fered personal damage, to sue or take other appropriate legal action against any public or private agency or individual which he believes lias infringed upon the public's right" to a clean environment. The bill also said pollution monitoring data obtained by tlie government should become public knowledge immediately.
