Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, February 14, 1974 WK nKrmfcv w> 'Isolated France wants to deal alone with Arabs for oil9 France has never been so thoroughly isolated as when she refused to agree with the other eight members of the European Common Market on co-ordination of energy policies at the international oil conference In Washington Tuesday. L t "France didn't want to be a member of a group of countries working together in common to solve this energy Roger Dehem, president of the Canadian Economics Association, said in an interview Wednesday. "France wants to solve its energy problems alone and work out special deals with the he said. "It would like to see other ECM members going along with her but they have ignored her." There has never been a poorer showing of the ECM than in the last few days, Dr. Dehem said. "There has been an awful lack of consistency." Dr. Dehem is the author of several well-known books on international economics and has achieved world recognition. He is a professor at Laval University in Quebec City. He was in Lethbridge Wednesday to give a lecture at the University of Lethbridge. He told The Herald France has turned its back on the common market by refusing to agree with the rest of the ECM members at the Washington conference. All members of the ECM are willing to co-operate except France, he claimed. France is willing to co-operate when the other eight members accept French policy. "France would like to rival the U.S. and for the other ECM members to stand with he said. "For what reason I don't know." The only way there will be a common stance by the ECM countries is if the others follow French leadership which is unreliable, he claimed. France's action over the last few days have deflated ECM hopes for economic and monetary integration, Dr. Dehem claimed. This action and France's decision to float the franc on the international monetary market in January Indicate she is almost pursuing an isolationist policy. In his lecture he said France has always been afraid of getting into a minority position in Europe. Regarding Britain's position in the Common Market he told The Herald if the Labor government wins the Feb. 28 election it will probably try and renegotiate the terms it settled on when it entered the ECM in 1973. He said many Britons think Britain isn't getting much return for the money it paid to join the ECM. Board delays hiring shop teacher aide A decision on the hiring of a teacher aide for the industrial arts program at Catholic Central High School was delayed by the separate school board Wednesday until further consideration can be given the request. The hiring of an assistant to perform non-teaching tasks was only one of 10 recommendations made in an evaluation report on the industrial arts program at CCH. The report also recommended improvement in the method of reporting student progress to parents, alternatives to the present curriculum be developed and the duties of an industrial arts teacher be outlined. A public relations program should be implemented to promote the industrial arts program in the school and the home, the report also recommended. No decision was made on any of the recommendations but the trustees spoke favorably about the recommendations and the industrial arts program. 600 miners begin vote at Elkford on new contract ELKFORD (HNS) Six hundred striking miners of local 7884 of the United Steel Workers of America vote here today and Friday on a memorandum of agreement reached earlier this week with the Fording Coal Company, a subsidiary of Cominco.

Menzak was remanded to Feb. 27 when a trial date is acfaedatad to be set ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC -ie 328-4095 John Boras, chairman, supported the hiring of the teacher aide and suggested that if there ever was "a time when a teacher aide would be helpful this would be the prune example." The sharpening of tools, welding jobs, and the adjust- ment of new and used equip- ment are some of the duties, the report suggests, that could be handled by the teacher aide in order to free the teacher for more instructional time with the students. Trustee Steve Vaselenak said he would like to see more students taking industrial arts in Grades 11 and 12. Only 149 of the 478 senior students in Catholic Central High School are taking toe industrial arts program. In Grades 7, 8 and 9, 398 out of a possible 634 students are taking the program. The operation of industrial arts in 1973 cost the separate school board In other business: The trustees instructed Ralph Himsl, superintendent, to prepare a submission for presentation to the University of Lethbridge Senate. The senate has asked individuals or community organizations to submit any concerns they might have about the university and the direction it should take in the future at its March 18 meeting. The trustees will ask the II of L to train teachers to teach religion in schools. Trustee Frank Peta suggested that the superintendent should explore the possibility of allowing Catholic Central High School students to eat their lunch in the lecture room. He said the lecture theatre could seat more than SO per cent of the 700 students .who are now eating lunch in crowded corridors and small lunchrooms. In a brief to the school board last month, Stan Sawicki, principal of CCH, asked toe board to improve lunchroom facilities in the school and a special committee was struck to study the request and report back. The school does not have a cafeteria and there is no provision for warm food. After a short debate, the trustees decided to again hold a ratepayers meeting this year. They expressed disgust with the small numbers of ratepayers who turned oat for the annual meeting in previous years, but decided to hold another meeting this year in "the interest of DINE DANCE Friday Saturday Featuring "The Moonglows" Westwinds Dining Room fcOOtolfcMpjn.
