The Games has worth of sports equipment that it will sell "at cost" to the 12 recreational areas in Southern Alberta if the event ends with a deficit. But if all goes according to plan, no deficit emerges, the equipment will be divided among the areas free. Tom McNab, who developed the final policy for sharing the Coleman wage plan okayed, city workers get raises COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Town council has accepted a wage agreement that provides its employees, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, a hourly, increase in two stages. Employees' wages will be raised 80 cents .hourly from Jan. 1 to July 1 and an ad- ditional 20 cents hourly from July 1 to Dec. 31. It was the proposal of Con- ciliation Commissioner R. A.

The plays, Consurria and the Apprentice Detective, and "Rock Cakes and Oil Wells and Dear Old Doctor are being presented in elementary schools for grades 1-3 and 4-6 respectively. Their Lethbridge stand ends Friday. As well as performances here and a number in Calgary, the group, which includes Calgary thespians Barbara Campbell Brown and John Crawford, are staging the show in centres from Leduc to Foremost and Rocky Moun- tain House to Oyen with stops in Red Deer and Medicine Hat. The tour started Jan. 14.

After graduation he returned to Canada to play the role of the Volunteer in The Hostage the Regina Globe Theatre's first production for the 1974-75 season.

The coal com- pany will be requested to take additional steps to control the dust. Under the present system, the town may not have to increase its natural gas rate to consumers, Mayor John Holyk and Town Secretary John Kapalka told council. They met 'recently with the director of gas rebates at Ed- .monton. Town gas company Foreman Joe Beigun told council 95 per cent of all homes in town, and 91 per cent in Improvement District 5, are now connected to the town's natural gas service. The local zoning bylaw will be amended to rectify truck parking, said to be creating a hazard along Highway 3. Council directed a letter be written to the provincial "board of health asking why burning refuse is not allowed at the Coleman dump. Council wondered why burning of refuse seems to be allowed at dumps in neighboring towns. Signs will be erected prohibiting dumping of raw sewage at the nuisance grounds. The Nez Perce Creek bridge near main street has been repaired, said Town Foreman Ruby Szymanek. A sewer ex- tension is being installed in the Pineview subdivision. Work has also started on in- stallation of a gas line to the town office complex. Council will advise Calgary Power it has no objection to a power transmission extension to Tent Mountain.

POPULATION-BASED The total worth of the equipment, what the Society paid, will be totalled by the Games officials and each area will be able to acquire a cer- tain amount of that value, depending on population of the area. Each recreational area will list, in order of priority, the equipment they want, Mr. McNab says. Following this the groups will meet and each priority will be filled. If more than one area wants a certain piece of equipment their names will go into a hat and a draw made to see which area takes home the goods. If a region wishes to acquire more equipment than the pop- ulation formula allots, it can supplement this with cash to the Society, Mr. McNab says. "For example if an area wanted worth of equip- i ment and was only alloted then it could get the extra equipment by paying he explained. The population .formula, which decides what total value of equipment an area can acquire, is the same for- mula used by the provincial government in its dealings with recreational areas, Mr. McNab says. LEFTOVERS In the event some equip- ment is left over that no area wishes to acquire the City of Lethbridge has said it will accept it as part of its allocation. If a deficit is incurred by the Games each area's allotment will be smaller and areas will have to pay for the amount of equipment necessary to make-up the says. If no buyers can be found among the recreation groups, the city has said it will buy all of the equipment. Keith Lees, Games' manager, says the worth of equipment, which was purchased last year, is likely worth well over at current prices... If it is necessary to sell some of the equipment it will be done at the price the Games paid. POLICY 'FAIR' Roy Blais, regional Games' co ordinator, says the policy, which he initially roughed out, is fair to all the areas par- ticipating. "You certainly can't argue with he says. "It's pretty well left up to the areas in Southern Alberta to get what they want." The total region will benefit and not just Lethbridge, the Taber recreation director adds. "We couldn't really have done it (divided the equipment) any other way." One of the main features in the plan is an agreement that if an area, in the future, wishes to use equipment ac- quired by another region it may borrow the supplies for the cost of transportation. "All the equipment will be available to all of Southern Mr. Blais adds. The regions involved in the equipment division are the Crowsnest Pass; MDs of Pincher Creek, Gardston, Willow Creek arid'Taber; the counties of Lethbridge, Warner, Forty Mile, and Vulcan, the Blood and Peigan Reserves and the City of Lethbridge.
