Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 27, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Tory truce at foster parent night By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor Conservative and Social Credit candidates met in a carefully non-political setting Wednesday a Southern Alberta Foster Parents' Association awards night and agreed politics should not interfere with the welfare of children. The candidates, Ray Speaker, Socred hopeful in Little Bow constituency; Alian Warrack, minister of lands and forests and Dick Grucnwald, Socred candidate in Letlibridge West, were as good as their word. No political pot-shots were taken by anyone at anyone else at least, not publicly. In fact, several people attending the meeting expressed varying emotions surprise, relief, disappointment when nothing controversial was dis- cussed. Mr. Speaker, who introduc- ed the awards to recognize foster parents in 1968 when minister of health and social development, was guest Pesticide, herbicide report 7 months off A shift from argumentative to problem solving objectives has been noted in presen- tations at public hearings investigating the pros and cons and pesticide and her- bicide use in Alberta, says the hearings chairman. Walter Trost of Edmonton, chairman of the Environment Conservation Authority which is looking into federal and provincial legislation govern- ing the use of chemical com- pounds in urban and rural set- tings, said Wednesday the first briefs presented at the public hearings were mainly opposing views on the subject! Since the formal public hearings concluded in November, the authority has been conducting weekly hearings in Edmonton to hear more briefs. These latter briefs have tended to suggest methods of solving the dilemma of determining the benefits and dangers of chemical use. Dr. Trost told 450 par- ticipants in the annual Provin- cial Agricultural Service Board Conference it appears the hearings should be finish- ed about the end of March although the authority will sit until all citizens have had their say. About six months following the conclusion of the public hearings, Dr. Trost and his committee will make a for- mal report to the provincial cabinet on possible approaches to pesticide and herbicide use in Alberta. Guilty plea entered in car theft charge A youth who turned 16 in January pleaded guilty in provincial court Wednesday to his fifth criminal offence since his birthday. Terry Lee North Peigan of Cardston pleaded guilty to stealing a car driven by Karen Gail Moss of Raymond, who left it running in front of 1101 Great Lakes Road about 11 p.m. Tuesday night. Police noticed the car in the downtown area about p.m. and Mr. North Peigan was arrested, court was told. He was remanded in custody until March 6 for pre sentence report. On Feb. 12 Mr. North Peigan was convicted in Lethbridge provincial court of being in possession of a stolen auto; theft of auto; break, enter and theft and break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence. All the offences occurred in Lethbridge in January and this month and for them Mr. North Peigan was given an 11 month suspended sentence. speaker at the meeting. Mr. Warrack, standing in for Health and Social Develop- ment Minister Neil Crawford, presented merit citations to 12 sets of Southern Alberta foster parents. Mr. Speaker said the foster parent awards had been es- tablished eight years ago to recognize work done by citizens in this area, to en- courage other people to take in foster children and to bring foster parents together to dis- cuss common problems. "Some of the programs we started have been carried on by the Conservative said Mr. Speaker. "Mr. Crawford has acted very responsibly and the new social emphasis Social Credit began is still moving in the correct direction." Mr. Speaker said he was pleased the Conservative government had recognized that the social needs of Alber- tans must be among top priorities of concern. However, in an interview prior to the meeting, he said the PC's recent proposals to reduce the welfare rolls by initiating penalties if social assistance recipients did not take available work was mere "political window dressing." "You can come to a house where there's a man, his wife and two children and tell the man to take a certain job by Friday or he's said Mr: Speaker. "But when Friday comes, you're hot going to starve the wife and children." SLIDING SCALE Mr. Speaker said the sliding scale of incentives, allowing recipients to gradually 'work' themselves out of social assistance, is "good." "I wish we could have done something like that, but we didn't have the money, the emphasis was keeping a lid on he added. "Elections have nothing to do with the welfare of said Mr. Warrack, "except to elect people to make policy to make youngsters' way in a complex society easier.- He said the voluntary ac- tions of giving and sharing characterized by foster parents were one mark of a civilized way of living. He said the foster parent program in Alberta was vital because it involves citizens in social projects. When you mix it, you don't lose ft.

City policemen try on new year-round jackets Lethbridge city policemen may be donning new year-round jackets to replace the tunics and coats they now wear, the Lethbridge Police Commission was told Wednesday. Police Chief Ralph Michelson told the commission the force is experimenting with five different kinds of all-weaker jackets. He said when the new budget is approved the force will be experimenting with 10 more types.. He was responding to a comment by Aid. Bill Cousins who described the present tunics as "rather archaic something out of Gilbert and Sullivan." Aid. Cousins also said the tunics were easy to grab, look restraining and would be awkward in a patrol car. The members of the commission were shown one of the experimental jackets. It had a nylon type of material on the outside, a removable fur collar and three layers of lining on the inside. All three layers of lining could be removed. Chief Michelson said if this jacket was accepted it would replace the tunic the men wear in the summer and the tunic and coal they wear in the winter. UofL to examine patents, copyrights Horse show to be in late May Initial plans are now being laid for the 9th annual Chinook Arabian Horse Show in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion May 23, 24 and 25. Edna McMullin of Lethbridge, show manager and publicity officer, said Tuesday organizers are expecting more than 200 entries again this year to make it the largest show in its short history. Sponsored by the Chinook Arabian Horse Association assisted by the Lethbridge Shriners Oriental Band, the show will include halter and show classes each morning with perfor- mance classes afternoons and evenings. For the first time this year, the association will raffle a part Arabian pony during the show. The University of Lethbridge will look at the pa- tent and copyright policy suggested by the Canadian Association of University Teachers, the board of gover- nors decided Wednesday. The governors received a report from the U of L general faculties council recommending the CAUT policy. It is to be examined by University President Bill Beckel. Dr. Beckel said the U of L has no patent policy on faculty members' inventions, only the Universities Act's statement that the university has a right to an interest in any patent. The CAUT policy is that the university should have an interest if special expen- ditures are made on the research leading to the inven- tion, he said. The CAUT copyright posi- tion is that the faculty member should have copyright on his works. The president said the current U of L policy assigns copyright on works of art, manuals, lecture notes and books to the faculty member. On films and recordings for teaching purposes made at the university, copyright is assigned to the university. But the faculty member can get it back, if the university can use the material and gets 50 per cent of the royalties, which go to the department originating the work. Dr. Beckel reported board of governors and faculty association representatives met with the advanced educa- tion department to discuss the possibility of establishing a single pension plan for all Alberta universities. The U of L does need a government guarantee of a minimum pen- sion, which the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary have, he said. The governors steered clear of a proposal by Students Union President Darryl Ross that they unofficially support a university advertising cam- paign. Mr. Ross said there was a students union motion passed supporting the idea. The union will have a surplus of about this year. The gover- nors could help with the mail- ing costs or lower the students union's rent, he suggested. He asked for approval of the idea in principle. The government, or other universities, couldn't consider the U of L to be advertising unethically if the students did the advertising on a basis of "We want people to know about our university." A recruiting campaign two years ago saw students travel to other campuses in an attempt to recruit students, he said. Only two other un- iversities in Canada are un- dergraduate, student oriented schools, he said. Dr. Beckel said it would cost the U of L at least to advertise in its service area the whole province the way Lethbridge Community College advertises in the South.
