Nap Milroy, CUPE business agent in Lethbridge, said the union is seeking a basic wage of $2.50 an hour or $100 a week - the same as unemployment insurance benefits.

The lowest rate now of $2.11 applies to housekeeping and dietary aides. The present contract expires March 31.

PJlllllkssi-i Data centre . . . operator Linda Houlton, LCC completes computer hook-up Lethbridge Community College has become the second major Alberta institute to provide the services of a major computer centre to its students of business. The computer, established at a cost of about $15,000 per year, is now in operation on campus. It is linked with a master computer centre at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Edmonton. Only the Red Deer College has a similar service. Although the computer work at LCC is restricted to about 200 business students, instructor Gordon Oliver says the service can be expanded to the college's administration routine. Mr. Oliver said the computer system is leased through Alberta Government Telephones and Control Data Corporation of Calgary. With automated data processing, LCC students how have a direct link with which to learn computer operations. In the past, computer studies have been restricted to classroom routine, with detailed information forwarded to Edmonton for analysis.

"Local students will be able to hold frank and informal discussions with the minister and his party about educational matters. "Representatives will be chosen by the student body to speak with Mr.- Hyndman, Mr. Gunderson and Dr. Jampolsky. Sessions will be attended by students of the school as well as by students from neighboring schools and some parents. "Each session will be chaired by a local student," tour officials say.

IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Twenty - one - month-old Nicole McCreary, 814 10th St. S., looks like she means business as she has a whirl on the teeter-totter at Kinsmen Park. The park was full of kids Thursday, including a handful playing hockey on the grass and another bunch riding their bikes on the skating rink'� slushy ice surface. Downtown spending could hit $20 million By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer An investment of between $18 and $20 million in the downtown redevelopment area and adjacent parts of the central core can be expected in the next five or six years, Cam Barnes says. In an enthusiastic, review of the city's vole in establishing the redevelopment scheme, Deputy Mayor Barnes told the Southern Alberta Council on Public affairs Thursday other parts of downtown have begun to pick up already. Aid. Barnes referred to a schedule which will see demol-ition of existing buildings in the *Halt technology for study period? A two-year selective moratorium on technological innovation has been suggested to the Alberta Fish and Association. Bob Harrington, noted Brit . ish Columbia writer, educator when they sing "O Canada, we -5 -1-,J ~ 1 stand on guard for thee" are calculating what they can get more in that manner," he said. "One of the biggest issues in defending all outdoors is to Game stop giving lip service and start doing something. He said too many people, and ecologist, told the 44th an nual association convention in Lethbridge today the morato- out of the' countryj rather" than num is needed to give man a what they can do for it u-i-u:-------- and t)J ^.......... breathing space stock of the situation of the ecology. Mr, Harrington said today man has made money a fetish, always trying to convert the earth's natural resources to artificial paper wealth. He said man has begun to think of nature as an alien situation which he must conquer. This is a wrong approach because if man is to beat extinction, he must look after nature and the ecological system. "If man is of divine origin, and has received the earth as a gift, then the earth must be taken care of simply out of respect of the Divine Giver," he said. "If, on the other hand, man descended from the trees . . . then man's obvious responsibility is to carefully protect the intricate ecosystem which gave rise to his species." Mr. Harrington stressed that regardless of which origin one chooses, there is a inescapable responsibility for defending all outdoors. He called the great splurge of technology a battle of Gross National Product versus Gross National Disaster. "Who can restore a 100-mile long, drowned valley behind a dam . . . will 10 million electric toothbrushes and electric back scratchers compensate with enough money in the bank?" he asked. In the battle for man to start to defend all outdoors, the problem of population is one of the biggest. He said more people mean more demands on environment and any habitat, whether daer, moose or human, is healthy when a limited population is not making extreme demands on it. The growing importance of technology is making it a "sacred cow," said Mr. Harrington. "We may have to pay the piper a heavy fee for the wild dance we have been enjoying." Man is the other problem in defending all outdoors, according to Mr. Harrington. Man has for too long assumed that somebody else is taking care of our problems. "Well, it can't be done any He said the battle to defend all outdoors could come down to ecological morality - the morality of a good ecological citizen living his everyday life in a conscientious and concerned manner. "The basic ecomoral (attitudes to spending) problem that we face is that we have a philosophy of unlimited consumption of goods and services, winch doesn't fit in with the cold, hard fact that we live on a finite planet, resources," he said. "Our principal problem is that we want our cake and eat it too." Mr. Harrington called for a genuine educational effort so that all people may be aware of man's true relationship to nature. And it will take involvement by everyone to make the battle against extinction a success, he said. area by November, start on construction of the Woodward store and shopping complex by early 1974, completion of a government administration building within three years and complete i-emoval of the Marshall Auto Wrecking yard by the fall of 1975. "We sat on our fannys for years but now we're really moving," he said. A development which usually takes five years to plan was accomplished in three months by city council, Woodwards and the province, Aid. Barnes said. When the city began moving toward redevelopment, Aid. Barnes said, it was believed federal assistance for such schemes was no longer available. However, in recent discussions between city officials and Ron Basford, minister of state for urban affairs, it was determined assistance could still come from Ottawa. The 35 people attending the luncheon were assured the complex will be well co-ordinated in a park-like setting. Aid. Barnes also said the possibility of turning 4th Ave. between 2nd and 7th St. S. into a mall with the streets remaining open for through traffic is uvthe discussion stage. The council members were also assured residents who are being displaced by the redevelopment will be moved into homes at least as nice as the ones they are leaving. Aid. Barnes strayed from the subject briefly to rap merchants who don't stay open the full number of hours allowed in the business hours bylaw. "Any businessman who's on his toes should stay open six days and two nights every week," he claimed. "Today you've got to stay open to stay alive." His comments were In response to a question about the lack of uniformity in the hours businesses in the downtown area stay open.
