NICK TAYLOR WAS 'BRASSED OFF Liberal chief critical of Syncrude financing Alberta Liberal Leader Nick Taylor said Tuesday he was "brassed off" by the deci- sion of the Alberta Progressive Conservative government and the federal Liberal government to help Syncrude overcome its dif- ficulties in establishing a billion plant in the Athabasca oil sands. "I'm just, glad the poker game broke up last Mr. Taylor said in an inter- view, here. "If the game had lasted much longer, I'm afraid everybody in Canada would have gone home in a barrel, the governments gave up so much." He said the figures show Alberta will pay about million as its share of the agreement announced in the legislature by Premier Peter Lougheed.

City home burns, damage ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Phone 328-4095 A fire that caused about damage forced residents of a South Lethbrjdge home to flee in sub-zero temperatures Tues- day night. The Lethbridge Fire Department was called to 971 12th St. A S. about U p.m. to fight a fire on the main floor and basement. The fire is believed to have been caused by a hot-water heater in the basement, says Fire Chief Er- nie Holberton. It took the fire department about an hour to put out the blaze, which was concentrated in the basement. The majority of the damage was to the flpor and joists, although there was smoke and water damage to the upstairs. Brian Fletcher rented the upstairs of the house and Bert Sanderson the downstairs. The occupants were playing cards upstairs when they detected the fire and fled, Chief Holberton said. The contents of the house were not insured. The owner of the home is Vince Morrack. It is unknown if the building is insured. Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Sanderson were unable to' return to the home, as the water and gas had to be turn- ed off first. cial government has, most of which came from the conven- tional oil he added. "It seems to me that's a record in poor business management." Mr. Taylor said every Cana- dian producer in the conven- tional oil industry has "a right to feel ripped off." "If the conventional producers had been told a few years ago that Canada would be willing to pay a barrel for another barrels of oil a day, I'm sure the conven- tional industry would provided that much oil by now. "If the federal government wanted cheap oil, it would have been better off to en- courage development on the East Coast and in the Arctic." Mr. Taylor said the federal government was aware of his views. "In defence of the federal government, I think the problem developed because of immense pressure from Central Canada, whose residents believed that in a few years they would be left to freeze in the dark." He said a "climate of national emergency" was created "I don't know how or by whom" and the National Energy Board report warning of pending petroleum shortages did not help the situation. "Given those facts, I feel the federal government probably believes it got off lightly." HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.

Frank Bodnar, who filed an appeal of a conviction on a charge of driving with a blood- alcohol level greater than .08 per cent, withdrew the appeal in Lethbridge District Court Tuesday. Mr. Bodnar's lawyer, Peter Keebler, told the court his client was withdrawing the appeal because of the ruling of the appellate division. In the Friday decision, the appellate division overturned the ruling of a Calgary judge made in December that could have affected thousands charged with similar offenses. TRY AND STOP US Coniing to 1090 CHEC In December, Judge E. R. Tavender allowed the appeal of a man charged with driving with a blood-alcohol level greater than .08 per cent. He allowed the appeal because the solution used in the breathalyzer into which the man gave a sample of his breath was inadequately tested. Following the decision, many appeals of similar con- yictions were filed in Lethbridge District Court. People were hoping to win appeals on the same grounds. Lethbridge's Chief Crown Prosecutor, Vaughn Hartigan, told The Herald since the appellate division has over- turned Judge Tavender's decision, police will now charge people with high breathalyzer readings just with the over .08 charge. Most people who have filed appeals hoping to win them on the grounds the breathalyzer solution was improperly tested will now probably withdraw them, Mr. Hartigan thinks. drew no objections No objections were filed to an application to change the capacity of a natural gas processing plant near Coleman', an Energy Resources Conservation Board spokesman said this week. The deadline was Monday. The application will probably go automatically to the board for an order approv- ing the said. It will also go to Environment Minister Bill Yurko for en- vironmental approval. The application affects the Savanna Creek plant of Saratoga Processing Co. Ltd.

LmnrLml PHONE m-ini Assistant named r for superintendent The secrecy surrounding the appointment of another staff member to the administration of public schools was made public Tuesday. The public school board has had the appointment of a special assistant under con- sideration for about two months, while holding dicus- sion about it in closed sessions. In a meeting Tuesday, it confirmed what many have been speculating about within the public school system for months, the appointment of former Winston Churchill High School principal Jim Anderson to the position created by the board in December. Environment course set for junior high Teachers in the three.public junior high schools will begin developing a curriculum for Grades 7, 8 and 9 science this spring. The public school board Tuesday approved the im- plementation of a curriculum development project to be ad- ministered by the University, of'Lethbridge. department of education. The curriculum developed is to focus on the local en- vironment and complement the new provincial science program for junior high students. Trustees Reg Turner and Dorothy Beckel were enthusiastic about the de- centralized approach to teaching science. Mr. Turner said "it is a wonderful thing to get away from the textbook and Mrs. Beckel applauded the develop- ment of a curriculum that provides for the study of the Southern Alberta en- vironment. Trustee Carl Johnson ex- pressed concern about the ad- ditional cost to the taxpayer for the funding of decentraliz- ed curriculum development. Unless the efforts of school boards are co-ordinated throughout the province, each could be developing the same curriculum and spending "a great deal of time" going through the same process. U of L education professor Eric Mokosch said the co- operation is already occurring since the Lethbridge project is built on some of the ground work completed by science teachers in Edmonton. He suggested it is important that the curriculum differ from one area to the next because it must reflect the study of science in the en- vironmental area of the school. The project in Lethbridge is to be completed by June, 1976, at an estimated cost to the school board of Mr. Anderson, who resigned as WCHS principal effective Jan. 31, was hired for a period not to exceed 15 weeks to assist the administrative staff in preparing reports on a number of new projects. He had served as principal of the school for the past year. The new projects under study include a five year plan for the efficient utilization of school buildings and facilities, a report on driver education, a study of a family life educa- tion program, establishment of a set of standards for stu- dent skills in all schools and a report on a remedial reading program. Mr. Anderson assumed his new duties Monday in an- ticipation of the board approval of the appointment. Teachers had protested the expenditure of school funds for the hiring of another ad- ministrator when, they believe, there is a need for more specialized teachers in the schools. An official letter of protest was set to the board by the staff of at least one school. It has never been presented. Superintendent Bob Plaxton explained in the meeting Tuesday that additional assistance was required in central office to fulfill some of the demands placed on the staff by the number of new programs and reports on proposed projects it must prepare before the end of the year. Governors to review trust fund for SUB Dieppe survivor honored SPARWOOD (HNS) -Herb Travis, first vice president of the Michel Natal branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, has received a medal from the Dieppe Veterans and Prisoners of War Association for taking part in the Aug. 19, 1942, Dieppe raid. He was then a corporal serving with the Calgary Tank Regiment. Mr. Travis is the only Dieppe veteran still living in the Sparwood area. Jack Weaver, now living at the west coast, was taken prisoner in the operation. Mr. Travis says the landing was made at about 4 a.m. He remained on the beach, pinned down by German gunfire, un- til 1 p.m. The student building trust fund referendum will be on the Lethbridge Community College board of governors agenda tonight. Students voted today on a referendum to determine if the trust fund fee levied by the students' union should remain at a semester, be reduc- ed to another figure, or be abolished. Student Council President Hal Gallup has maintained abolitiorj of the fee could im- peril the students' use of the Whoop-Up Building as a stu- dent facility, since the cost of renting it from the board could not otherwise be met. Nor would there be funds for eventual construction of .a Stu- dent Union Building. A petition circulated at LCC last semester called for a referendum on fee abolition. A memorandum from Board Chairman Bob Babki to College President C. D., Stewart says the chairman was contacted by Tony Dim- nik, a student opposed to the building fee, with a request for time to make a submission to the board. In the note, Mr. Babki says he indicated the board would hear a submission, par- ticularly if the result of the referendum is such that the student fees should be dealt with in a different manner." Other items on the agenda include: the college master plan, a request from Im- manuel Christian School to use LCC shop facilities to teach industrial arts, the dis- pute with the city over its tax bill for the Science Building and a report that the drama class is under minimum size.
