Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tucidny, rnbrucry 1977 THE ItTHBRIDGr HRAID 3 tit stake in FernlK School District, Referendum gains green light NATAL, (HNS) Schoo I board secretary treasurer E. r. Chambers has said that ap- pi-ova) has been received from Victoria wilh respect lo the board's application for approv- al to hold a referen- dum to cover estimated capital projects in School District No. I Decision on Hie matter has brcn pending since November of last year, and two tentative dates for the vote have come and gone since it was submit' led lo Victoria. In p r c v i o u s meetings, trustees expressed concern that delay in receiving permission to hold Uie referen- dum may mean needed build- ings will not bcv ready in time accommodate district slu- dents. Mr. Chambers .said a spe- cial meeting has been called at which necessary moves will bo decided upon in order that tlio referendum may be presented at the earliest dale possible. Asked about recent reports that school boards whose ary agreements with teachers pi wide more than Ihe 0.5 per cent increase suggested by the government will have lo apply through referendum to the vot- ers for permission to raise the extra money, Mr. Chambers said he has heard nothing from Victoria officials on the matter. "AH J know at the present lima is whal. I read in the newspa- Mr. said. Also unclear at this time is whether Fernie District school board may apply the 110 per cent factor to its budget, al- though it has, in effect, already done this. At a recent special meeting, the board trimmed its operat ing budget down to 110 per cent of the basic education cost. Un- certainty stems from an an- nouncement from the minister of education several weeks ago that some areas will be allow- ed to go only to 108 per cent of the basic education costs, wliiie others, tinder certain con- ditions, may apply the 110 per cent factor. The matter has never been made crystal clear. In Fernie's case, Mr. Cham- bers said, he is assuming the 110 per cent factor will be al- lowed. The operating budget must be submitted by Feb. ]5, al- though district assessments and government grant structures will not be known by that date.

England (AP) Britain's nationwide coal miners' strike entered its fifth week Monday and erupted into brawls as picketing miners clashed with police outside a giant coke depot. The violence began as 300 po- lice linked arms in a bid to hold back more than 580 angry miners. The miners were trying to stop trucks from entering or leaving the depot containing tons of biggest fuel store left in the industrial Midlands region of England. Earlier, the miners managed lo chase away most of the wait- ing trucks with a broadside of pies, fruit and eggs. Then two trucks forced their way through the picket lines and the miners turned on the police. One officer was punched in the stomach and had to be taken to hospital. Others had (heir helmets knocked off as they grappled with the miners. The 230.000 miners are de- manding an 11-per-ccnt wage in- crease. They have rejected a national coal board offer of a 7.9-per-cent increase. An under- ground worker cams the equiv- alent of as a basic weekly rate.
