Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thundiy, 8, 197! TEXTILE WORKER OFFERS RCMP OFFICER SOME RUM Jobless textile workers informed they must wait OTTAWA (CE) About 000 unemployed textile workers in Quebec, Eastern Ontario and the Maritimes must wait at least another two weeks before learning whether Ottawa will help them, Treasury Board Presi- dent Jean Chretien said Wednesday. He told reporters the government cannot act on widespread lay offs in the textile industry until it receives a textile and clothing board report on the dumping of low cost imported yarns in Canada. The report should be completed in two weeks and cabinet would act quickly, if necessary, to increase tariffs or impose import quotas. He said he gave this assurance to a delegation from the 500 unemployed Quebec textile workers who staged a noisy but peaceful two hour demonstration on Parliament Hill Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Chretien conferred for one hour with Paul Dalpe of Montreal, president of the 000 member Centrale des Syn- dicats Democratiques, and other organizers of the demonstration. Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie was in Toronto. The union represents about Quebec textile workers. They include the majority of the 6.000 who have been laid off from Eastern Canada mills since early January. Textile mills have been forced to cut back because of competition from low cost imports, Mr. Dalpe said. The delegation discussed layoffs with Mr. Chretien but not the issue of delays in unemploy- ment insurance payments to some textile workers. The delegation was unaware that the problem is as serious as many of the demonstrators claim, Mr. Dalpe said.- Mr. Dalpe said the workers were "depressed and tired" and want government intervention "for the stability of the which employed workers nationally.

George F. Davidson, UN un- der-secretary for administra- tion and management, said Wednesday Canadian activity at the UN has considerably enhanced this country's image abroad. Mr. Davidson, a former deputy minister of health and former CBC president, told a Canadian Club luncheon here that there is an increased awareness in the American press of Canadian activity, both at home and abroad. He cited coverage in the New York Times of the tabl- ing Monday of the government's green paper on immigration as an example. He added that Canadian energy policy receives exten- sive coverage in the U.S. press, as does the activity of Prime Minister Trudeau and his family. the increased awareness of Canadian activi- ty to the role at the UN and especially to Canada's consis- tent contributions to peacekeeping around the world. GETTY'S PROFITS UP NEW YORK (AP) Getty Oil Co. said Tuesday higher crude oil and natural gas prices boosted its profits 12 per cent in the fourth quarter and 97 per cent for its fiscal year 1974.

Trustees boost out of town allowances Lethbridge public school trustees Tuesday discussed increasing the amount of money they are paid to attend conventions and seminars out- side the city in a closed meeting and then approved the increase in an open meeting. They boasted their daily allowance from to to reimburse themselves for time spent o.'tside the city. The increase leaves them below the daily allowance received by Medicine Hat public school trustees and on par with the allowance receiv- ed by Red Deer public trustees. However, Lethbridge trustees will be receiving a day more than the Medicine Hat separate trustees, fS more than the Grande Prairie public school trustees and more than Lethbridge separate trustees. A proposal before public school trustees Tuesday for the replacement of the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute cafeteria windows was accepted with one alteration. On a motion by Trustee Dorothy Beckel the board agreed to install three equal sized vertical windows to. replace each of the six large windows at an estimated cost of A recommendation presented to the board suggested that each of the large windows be divided into four to prevent breakage. Mrs. Beckel felt square windows would not comple- ment the architectual design of the cafeteria. Vandals destroyed five win- dows in 1974 for a total cost to the board of the trustees were informed. The Winter Games Society has obtained liability in- surance for its volunteers and does not expect the school board to be responsible for any damage caused to the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute. LCI is being used as part of the Winter Games Village and the students and staff of the school will assist in trans- forming the classrooms into bedrooms Friday. Trustee Dorothy Beckel ex- pressed concern that the school board could "be left with the responsibility" of repairing any damage caused to the school building while it serves as the Winter Games Village. Trustee Gary Bowie, who is also a volunteer with the Games society, said the federal government has withheld a portion of its grant to the society as insurance for any damage that might occur during the Games. The trustees were also in- formed the society has a million liability insurance policy to cover its volunteers and the students and teachers would be considered to be volunteers. The new gymnasium at Gilbert Patersori School will be equipped with bleachers. The public school board agreed to loan the junior high school students council with no interest and a repay- ment plan that extends over the next three years when it was informed that the students have agreed to contribute 50 per cent cash to the cost of purchasing the bleachers.
