Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, February 22, 1975' Tax forum Tuesday Changes resulting from the federal and provincial budgets will be among the topics at Tuesday's income tax Forum, the forum chairman said Friday. Myles Bourke said there will probably be no great details on the proposed provincial tax cuts. Informa- tion on how they will work and what their effect will be is still sketchy, he said. Among the federal changes to be discussed is the new registered home ownership saving plan. The effect is generally similar to the already-familiar registered retirement savings plans, he said. Forum topics will generally follow the pattern of filling out a personal income tax return. Mr. Bourke said the topics will include: income from employment and property, capital gains, business in- come, deductions from in- come, registered home ownership savings plans, income-averaging annuity contracts, other deductions, tax calculation and general averaging. The forum, intended to help the average taxpayer, starts at p.m. at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. Admission is free, but seating is available only for 200 people. It will feature a panel of five chartered accountants who will discuss various taxation topics. After a short break, taxpayers' questions will be answered by the panelists. Mr. Bourke said no verbal questions will be taken. The public will be supplied with question cards, which will be divided among the panelists. Questions should be of general interest, rather than specific, c mplex problems, he said. The forum is co-sponsored by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta, the Lethbridge and District Chartered Accountants Association and The Lethbridge Herald. WINTER GAMES BOXING JUDGE JERRY SHEARS COLIN SHAW photo Boxing judge faces political sparring in international ring at Moscow IONA COFFEE GRINDER Clear plastic top, safety switch Long life, easy to clean, grinding cup and blade lets you grind as much as Is required for a perfect cup every time. REG. 14.88 SPECIAL 11 99 foil Houwwirw 327-5767 DOWNTOWN By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer Whether he's sitting as a judge at Canada Winter Games bouts or ruling on international political sparring, Jerry Shears wants a fair fight. The former Canadian lightweight champion, here today to judge Winter Games boxing finals at the Exhibition Pavilion, modestly admits he wears "a number of hats." The 49 year old founding president of the Canadian Amateur Boxing Association, succeeded in 1973 by Ossie Osland of Edmonton, is also an honorary member of the International Amateur Boxing Association, a director of the Canadian Olympic Associa- tion and boxing co ordinator lor Quebec's Mission 76. But his most important one which will take him to Moscow in a few weeks to rule on Olympic competi- tion in 1976, is as one of four voting members of the judges and referees committee to the world association. 150 BOUTS "I qualified as an inter- national judge in Mexico in 1968, and three years later I was elected to the world body as a referee. "As one of four committee members with a vote, I repre- sent the says Shears, who fought more than 150 bouts during his 21 year career as a fighter and coach with the Canadian Army before hanging up his gloves in 1950 in Oxford, England. He says anyone believing there is a lot of politics in FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est. 1922 PHONE 327-IMS t. S. P. FOX, C.D.M. FOX LETHBRIDGE DENTAL LAB 204 MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO.

FREE CUSTOMER PARKING amateur sport at the Canada Games level, should see what happens internationally. "This is the first time Canada has ever had this kind of influence In the Olym- pics, every nation sends their athletes and officials, and the political ideologies of many nations are very important." The Communist countries, he adds, are out to win in world boxing competition. One way to improve your chance of winning is to be well represented at international meetings, like the upcoming Olympics meet in Moscow, where the selection of judges and referees will be made. While Iron Curtain countries, which he says now dominate world boxing com- petition, provide travelling funds for delegates, Shears must either pay his own way or ask the federal government for a special grant. AMATEUR An amateur all his life, Shears balks at comparing amateur with professional boxing. "We're trying to advance the image of the true amateur sportsman who shakes hands with his opponent, fights and then shakes hands again after the bout. "Obviously, professional boxing spoils this." As a judge at Exhibition Pavilion, Shears' job is that of any judge or referee: remain impartial and keep each match a fair contest. "One of the main respon- sibilities of a referee is to protect the boxers against in- jury, so there is always a contest. "There are from eight to 16 officials participating in the contest, all aiming at seeing the game is safe." NEED A CONTEST This comment from one of Canada's boxing masters best explains his desire to keep boxing fair, whether it be Winter Games competition or the political sparring of world nations: "Boxing must always re- main a contest." City Scene Essay winner to be named The honorary replacement for Public School Superinten- dent Bob Plaxton March 3 is to be named Tuesday at a meeting of the school board. The winner will assume the roll of superintendent on the first day of education week, March 3 to 7. The honorary superintendent is to be selected on the basis of an essay contest that involved seven public elementary schools. A winner from each of the schools is to appear at the Tuesday meeting for the final selection. Electrical course expected Final approval is expected shortly for a spring first-year electrical apprentice at Lethbridge Community College, a release from LCC says. The college usually trains first year apprentices before Christmas and second year apprentices in the spring, said technology and trades director Fin McPherson. Demand for the unusual spring session of first year training was caused by the shortage of skilled tradesmen in Alberta, he said. The request came from the Alberta Apprenticeship Board. fines levied in thefts The case involving the theft of almost worth of television sets in August and September was closed recently with fines and one day each in jail for the four remaining accused. The four men faced charges of possession of stolen proper- ty. Lucian Pizzingrilli of Lethbridge, Felluccis Potocnjack of Lethbridge, Frederick James Jaworsky of Calgary, and Michael Duane Emard, 23, had first elected trial by judge and jury following their preliminary hearings in November. A fifth man, Leonard Fink pleaded guilty at the November hearing and was fined Later, the other four re elected to be tried by a provincial judge and when they each appeared before Provincial Judge L.

CALL OWEN AOENTSFOR ALLIED VAN LINES Separate trustees, ATA about to resume talks The Lethbridge separate school trustees and teachers 1975 contract talks are at a stalemate but a glimpse of hope for a continuation of negotiations was evident Friday. Separate Board Chairman Frank Peta said the trustees are prepared to meet with the teacher negotiation com- mittee but would wait for the teachers to request the meeting. Alberta Teacher Associa- tion bargaining agent Charles Hyman said in an interview from Edmonton the negotia- tion team is "getting closer" to the time when it can pre- sent another case to the board. Contract talks broke down in November when the board refused to reconsider its posi- tion after the teachers turned down its offer. Dr. Hyman said Friday the .teacher negotiating com- mittee had not asked for another meeting since talks broke off last year because "there is no value in meeting with that kind of board" until it is known what other boards in the province have settled for. BALANCING CLAUSE The separate school board would not agree to granting the teachers a balancing clause in the 1975 contract that would provide them with an additional salary increase equal to the average increase granted teachers in other ma- jor Alberta school jurisdic- tions. The public school teachers had beer, awarded the balanc- ing clause during their negotiations with the public board last fall. The separate board was prepared to grant the 12 per cent average increase in salaries for 1975 and an eight per cent wage boost retroac- tive to September that was also granted the public teachers. However, the trustees refused the balancing clause because they were not certain of their 1975 revenue nor the amount of money the clause may eventually cost them. When the contract negotiations broke down late last year, the four major boards in Calgary and Ed- monton had not settled with their teachers. The Calgary separate school teachers have recently signed a memorandum of agreement with their board for a 1975 contract and negotiations in the other three school jurisdictions have advanced to a stage where the percentage increase can be accurately es- timated. The chairman wouldn't comment on whether the board was willing to recon- sider its position. "I can't tell you that until the board has had the oppor- tunity to review" the current situation, he said. County hopes to borrow million from MFC The Lethbridge County Council has decided to in- form the Alberta Municipal Finance Corporation that it expects to borrow for capital projects this year. The total estimated required borrowing is compris- ed as follows: New county administration .building, million; Coalhurst water and sewer systems, Coalhurst schools, Nobleford school, and Shaughnessy water and sewer, County Manager Bob Grant noted that the MFC has "taken the limit off borrowing this year. But we will have an awful time getting that much money." He said the Local Authorities Board has provided the county with orders authorizing it to go ahead with the first four projects listed. Coun. Steve Slemko of Coaldale urged council to in- clude expected borrowing for a new R. I. Baker School building but the county manager said plans will not be far enough advanced this year for that stage. Drought may end at Granlea Dam By D'ARCV RICKARD Herald Staff Writer FOREMOST Forty Mile County councillor Marg Dragland is going to swim or sink in her efforts to turn a dried-lip reservoir, Granlea Dam, into a summer picnic, boating, water-skiing spot. She needs millions of gallons of water for her pro- ject and Friday at the regular county council meeting it looked like she may be going to get it. Engineer Wilf Langen of the water resources management division, Lethbridge, has prepared a plan to bring irrigation water over to the Granlea reservoir, about 25 miles southeast of Bow Island. Friday, he turned some maps over to Coun. Dragland with some instruc- tions. But little was said as to how close the project is to realization. The distance from the Games close on TV Sunday Games fans who miss the Winter Games closing can see the ceremonies Sunday at 1 p.m. oh CBS. CBC co-ordinator Ernie Afaganis said this morning that Sunday's two-hour national program will include highlights from closing ceremonies and finals Satur- day in figure skating, boxing and hockey. irrigation source to the Granlea reservoir is 13 miles. Meanwhile, another pro- ject for the Forty-Mile Lake area north of Foremost ran into a snag. "There is a report on the books with the St. Mary River .Irrigation District, a study made to see if they would want to use this spot as a reservoir said Mr. Langen. Council was advised to find out how important those ideas are now to the SMRID. "Before we go ahead and do any development there it would be wise to check this said Mr. Langen. "Otherwise, five years later they might come along and say we would want to use that as a storage area." He said his branch has to relate to the water problem of that area and is not primarily concerned with recreation. "When it comes to securing the land for a campground, you will have to go to the lands and forests he said. "Our involvement is in terms of water projects relating to irrigation." Mr. Langen suggested a lease on a quarter section be negotiated with lands and forests to secure road allowances. Then the county can make an arrangement with the party involved who wants grazing rights. "Then you are in the driver's said Mr. Langen.
