2 -. THI IITHBRIDOI HIRAID - Saturday, February 27, 1971 'Pass school opens COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) -"Opening a new school is the mark of progress," said- Dr. Lynn Gordon Hall, director of school administration, department of education, as he addressed more than 250 people attending the official opening of the new Crowsnest Pass Consolidated High School. He recalled having visited the 'Pass four years ago when construction of the school was only in the talking stages. He congratulated all the communities in the district for the achievement. He said the fine environment, such as exists in the new building, provides atmosphere where teachers can bring out the qualities and potentials of their students. Charles Drain, MLA, congratulated all concerned with the construction of the school and stated that education for our young people is a must. He said the future of Canada depends on education. William Ede, superintendent of the district, said all schools in the Crowsnest Pass are relatively new, all having been built within the past 10 years, with the exception of one. He indicated this showed the great foresight of the people of the 'Pass. Board chairman Grant Hall stated it would be "10 to 20 years before we can assess the full value of the school to our children." Principal Horace Allen credited many persons for the work they had put into the building. He said the school would do much to unify the Crowsnest Pass. Other speakers included Jerry Lonsbury, ATA local president, and Brian Linder-man, student council president. Alia, lagging says Horner Life sentence WETASK1WEN (CP) - Gerald Iehl, 24, of New Sarepta, Alta., was sentenced to life imprisonment Friday for the non-capit&l murder of Harvey Schlewe, .34, also of New Serepta. Mr. Schlewe was found shot Nov. 9 in his home, about 21 miles southeast of Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) - The Social Credit government Friday detailed its plans for improving the quality of life in Alberta while the opposition took swipes at what they said that life lacks. Provincial Treasurer A. 0. Aalborg presented � record $1.2 billion budget which called for $10 million to be set aside for improving the environment and increased spending' in health, welfare and education. The Progressive Conservatives had no comment on the deficit budget but a few hours before it was presented Hugh Horner (PC-Lac Ste. Anne) said Alberta Is lagging behind other provinces in agriculture, highways, industry and tourism and health and welfare. "There's all kinds of things they could do if they would Just get off the pot and do them," Mr. Homer told the legislature during the dying moments of throne speech debate. "Alberta is a good place to live . . but it could be a heck of a lot better place." He criticized a report on the future of agriculture in the 1970s, tabled in the house Thursday by Agriculture Minister Henry Ruste. The report cost $100,000, he said, and was not something the farmers of Alberta needed or wanted. "They haven't asked for $100,000 reports. The peopk of Alberta are looking for more . . . they're looking for leadership." The only way for some Al-bertans to get welfare assistance, said Mr. Horner, is to sell everything they have. The social development department Vapor-sniff deaths ruled accidental EDMONTON (CP) - The deaths of two Edmonton men in a fire after they had sniffed gasoline vapors were ruled as accidental by a coroner's jury Friday. The court was told Roderick Steinhauer, 27, and Henry Moses, 19, were sniffing gasoline when the fumes were Ignited by the pilot light on a nearby water heater. Nine others were injured. was still basically a welfare department because It did little to provide true social development. Suggested reforms in mental health, he said, have been buried under an avalanche of bureaucracy while Industrial development is being held back by too much talk and too little action. Provincial Secretary Ambrose Holowach defending Social Credit policies saying that if the federal government followed the party's financial thinking, the country's economy would be in a sounder state. "It Is something to be ashamed of to see . . . only high levels of employment have existed in wartime." Mr. Holowach said Social Credit at the federal level would provhfae sound financial policies, a reduction in taxes and more financial leadership to substantially shrink unemployment. The throne speech was approved 45 to 10 with all the Conservatives voting against. Nine Social Credit members were absent for the vote. The Conservatives launched a volley of probing queries during the question period on a $6.4 million capital development scheme announced Thursday by Premier Harry Strom. Dave Russell (PC - Calgary Victoria Park) asked the premier if it was true that his statement that the program would create 118,000 man-days of work had been padded by 11 per cent. When Mr. Strom said he would stand by his figures, Mr. Russell said something was wrong with the premier's arithmetic and was ruled out of order. Outside the house, Mr. Russell said figures in a press release on the program had been changed. Don Getty (PC - Strathcona West) asked why the province should borrow money for the program from the federal government. He suggested the money be drawn from provincial ' funds to save interest charges. Mr. Aalborg said Mr. Getty would understand why when the budget was tabled. The legislature adjourned immediately after the budget speech and is to begin the review of estimates on Monday. wgwgm R0THMANS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS PlinnhiB a cwumwity mat?
