Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, February 35, 1971 Action for independence stressed at city meeting ALL THIS JUST FOR EDUCATION? - Mary-Jean Sawicki of the 4th Lethbridge Guide Co. and Tommy Herbert of the 5th Scout Troop find out it is not all roses running the public and separate school systems in Lethbridge. Guide Sawicki, with R. A. Kimmitt, superintendent of the separate school beard and Scout Herbert, with Dr. O. P. Larson, superintendent of the public school board, were participating in Founders Week celebrations, becoming superintendents-for-a-day. Sharon Orr of the 7fh Lethbridge Guide Co. and Rick Carbert of the 4th Lethbridge Scout Troop Wednesday were acting presidents of the Lethbridge Community College and the University of Lethbridge respectively. Satisfactory financial status reported by St. Andrew's In a year marked by rising costs in goods and services, a fairly static congrefation and a slight increase in givings, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church closed out 1970 on a satisfactory financial note. The annual meeting was held Tuesday evening with reports from the various church groups showing strength in numbers, activities and finances. A new curricilum for the Sunday School was phased in last September which brought about an increase in the budget for Christian education. The coming year will also see an additional rise in this department and then it will be possible to re-use the resource materials with a consequent decline in outlay. The Sunday school now has a teaching staff of 28 with ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 190 children and young adults enrolled. The meeting passed a unanimous resolution paying tribute to Mrs. L. A. Wylie who retired as general superintendent after a quarter of a century of dedicated service. The church in 1971 marks; its 84th year in Lethbridge and with the transfer of members from the Hope Reformed Church on January 1, new challenges, increased enthusiasm and wider opportunities for the enlarged congregation were stressed by the minister. Rev. L. D. Hankinson. The budget of $55,000 for the forthcoming year was approved with several revisions. New members of the board of management elected unanimously were: F. J. Wood, W. Van Roon, P. Kooy, W. A. S. Johnstone, H Van Dyk and A Van Egmond all for three years; R. H. Bekius, two years and B. Groenenboom, one year.

Sorry for any inconvenience REVELSTOKE BUILDING MATERIALS LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave. and 17th St. S. 1.95 Ottawa word on task force expected in two weeks By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer MEDICINE HAT - A decision from the federal government on participation in Alberta's Task Force on Urbanization and the Future is expected within two weeks. Peter Boothroyd, consultant to Premier Harry Strom on the task force told the annual meeting of the Medicine Hat Regional Planning Commission Wednesday the task force has been in the works for over a year and was awaiting some commitment from the federal government. Mr. Boothroyd told The Her aid the province would go ahead with the project without federal participation but that if this happened the task force would be much less meaningful and less well funded. He said active federal government participation was probably more important to the success of the project than the money because of the fact so many important decisions are made in Ottawa. He cited incentive grants to industries as a prime example of a federal government decision with far-reaching local implications. Success reported in LCC printing Advertising and printing services have been among the most successful programs undertaken by the Lethbridge Community College personnel department in the past year. Gower Kennedy, director of LCC personnel, told the college board of governors Wednesday that continuing education had been the heaviest user of advertising materials, but all college schools had increased their advertising coverage. Nine large newspaper display advertisements and a number of smaller newspaper ads; two films, 30 morning television shows and a number of 6:30 p.m., half-hour televi- Food workers plan vote on wage offer 740, Fifty members of Local Canadian Food and Allied Workers, employees of the Alberta Canning Division of Canada Packers Ltd. in Lethbridge are to hold a ratification vote this weekend to determine whether or not to accept a new company offer made Wednesday. The employees who work in a processed french fries and vegetable plant, were to go on strike Wednesday, but agreed to hold strike proceedings during the course of mediation talks. Mediator is John Hutton of Calgary. The union is asking for a GO cent across-the-board increase in a two-y ear contract. The company's original offer which the union rejected was for a 35-cent increase. United Nations figures say that more than half the suicides in France last year were in the 17-25 age bracket. sion productions involving individual LCC schools were the major advertising programs undertaken. Some of the coverage was free or at reduced rates, Mr. Kennedy indicated. Spot radio advertising and several other promotions were also used. The college printing services division "has adequately filled the needs of all users," Mr. Kennedy said. New equipment has been purchased to keep pace with increased demand on the division, as student enrolment increases and the college faculty begins to more effectively utilize printed materials. Mr. Kennedy said the college has received more than 1,150 enquiries as to the availability of faculty jobs in the past year, and there were 928 direct applications for 29 advertised positions opened since March, 1970. He said his department's secretarial pool has operated effectively and in peak-work periods has employed students from the business education school, "providing them with work experience they wouldn't otherwise get until they were out on the job.'' He said the college has begun using the Alberta department of education and Alberta Teachers' Association Teacher Qualifications Service to assess applicants for faculty jobs, and the service is now prepared to do the same thing covering the nursing school. Mr. Kennedy's report listed total LCC faculty at 53 permanent and 21 sessional instructors, with 24 administrative personnel and general employees, and 17 stenographic and secretarial personnel, for a total of 115 employees. The college has about 850 full-time students and more than 1,000 part-time. Education institute set for Labor Club George Home, director of political education for the Canadian Labor Congress, will address an education institute in the Lethbridge Labor Club March 4-6. He will address a public meeting March 4 in the Labor Club speaking on the white paper on taxation with the theme "Working people - how it will affect them." The education institute, sponsored by the Lethbridge and District Labor Council, will hold schools each day for about 80 delegates. The schools will include: shop stewards, headed by Jim Shewchuk of the CLC in Calgary; trends in collective bargaining headed by Pete Dried-ger of (he Canadian Union of Public Employees in Calgary; and union administration and p a r 1 i a tnentary procedures, headed by Jim Brechin of the CLC in Regina. Mr. Home will address the banquet and social evening March 6. Any Interested people wishing to attend the closing banquet can obtain tickets by phoning Gerald Litchfield, president of the Lethbridge and District Labor Council. I The senior government was just one of many interest groups that will be "plugged in" to the task force, Mr. Boothroyd said. In summing up the day's discussions at the seminar on urbanization held in conjunction with the planning commission's annual meeting he said one of the advantages of the task force was that it would make use of interest groups at all levels of the community, not just the professionals who usually do such studies on urban problems. He noted that there has been several areas of conflict brought out during the day and that these could all be taken into account using the task force approach. Any interest group with a particular problem or point of view would have an opportunity to become part of the mechanism established by the task force and make its views known. The task force is being set up to study urban and rural problems, it has been endorsed by the mayors of the 10 Alberta cities and is to be funded by all levels of government provided the federal government agrees to participate By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Unless Canadians strive to ensure their country's economic and political independence, "we will soon have nothing left but a flag, an Oopik and a memory of a nation." So said Joe Clark of High River Wednesday night at a formative meeting of a Lethbridge branch of the Committee for an Independent Canada. The meeting, which attracted 35 persons, saw the election of radio news director Bill Skelton as chairman of the fledgling branch's executive. Also on the executive are Robert Tarleck, Dr. Johan Schuyff, Ted Scheur-kogel, Joanne Kregosky and John Hammond. Mr. Clark is a former special assistant to federal Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield and is currently a freelance journalist working out of Calgary. Listing a number of areas in Canada in which foreign domination has spread, Mr. Clark said it is "up to us to determine what (Canada) will become, and there is not much time." Among the statistics: The Canadian publishing industry is in trouble, About 80 per rent of books bought by public libraries and 92 per cent bought by university book stores are published outside Canada. Apparently one Ontario textbook, How People Live in Canada, features Abraham Lincoln on its cover. The National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks are based in Canada, but their NHL franchise is owned by a Minneapolis firm. Three out of every four labor union members belong to unions with headquarters in the U.S. The French government is concerned that foreign ownership in France has reached 10 per cent. In Britain the figure is 16 per cent. But in Canada, more than 60 per cent of industry is controlled by non-Canadians. Takeovers in 1970 included: a SMILEY'S PLUMBING GLASS LINED WATER HEATERS S120 AND UP Phone 328-2176 chain of theatres in the Mari-times, 34 funeral parlors across Canada, a St. Catharines sweater manufacturing company established in 1877, a chain of daily newspapers in Manitoba with 80 per cent of the market, the Canadian Wig Company, Canada's third largest bus line, one snowmobile company, Ryerson Press. Mr. Clark said one of the byproducts of non-Canadian control has been the refusal by Canadian subsidiaries to sell to communist countries. This activity is forbidden, not by Canadian legislation, but by U.S. mother companies who are Stratas sings tonight The 500-seat Yates Memorial Centre is expected to be filled tonight for a concert by Teresa Stratas, Canadian-born leading soprano of the Metropolitan Opera. The concert, to start at 8:30, is the final of four in the 1970-71 Overture Concert Series and marks the first time Miss Stratas has appeared in Lethbridge. The program for the recital includes: Voi che sapete and Non so piu cosa son from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro; four works by Schumann; five by Brahms including Das Mad-chen spricht and Nicht menr zu dir zu gehen; plus numbers by Turina, Obradors, Montsal-vatge and Offenbach. ruled by America's Trading with the Enemy Act. He suggested there was evidence that Canada is being bought out "by our own money." A study by the U.S. department of commerce indicated that of money used by U.S. subsidiaries in 1968 to take over Canadian firms, 94 per cent was Canadian money (made in Canada as profits and turned back into expansion). The Commute for an Independent Canada, which Mr. Clark estimated has about 1,200 members in Alberta, proposes to make elected representatives aware of the concern Canadians have over the 'situation. The CIC, established about a year ago with headquarters in Toronto, is to present a petition to the federal government at the end of March showing signatures of those backing CIC's aims. The committee does not have resolutions to the foreign control issue, Mr. Clark said, but it is only trying to make governments aware of the problem. The group is non-partisan and has members from all political parties. Some of its national committee members are Doris Anderson, editor of Chatelaine, Bobby Baun of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Pierre Ber-ton, Earle Birney, Harold Cardinal, Judy LaMarsh, Alvin Hamilton and Laurier La-pierre. The Lethbridge branch is expected within the next month to seek new CIC members and signatures for a petition from southern Alberta.
