S. LEfHMIDGE, ALBERTA SEE US FOR All YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Heavy vandalism at Westminster Lethbridge city 'police are in- vestigating overnight break-ins at two city schools. West minster Elementary School in the north end of the city was heavily damaged by vandals. Unofficial estimates place the damage at between and George McKillop School was also entered but only minor damage was caused. I So far, nothing has been re- I ported missing at either school. Facilities on both floors of Westminster were damaged in the incident-desks were tumed, a piano .was shoved over and oilier musical instru- ment were damaged. Police report hallways were also ransacked. Entrance to the building was gained by breaking a window. Unions will seek national autonomy Canadian locals of interna- tional unions have too few members to be completely autonomous of their United States head offices. Roy Jamha, president uf the Alberta Federation of Labor said in a telephone interview from Edmonton that Canadian organized labor does not have sufficient members to bear the cost of labor actions. Membership in Canadian or- ganized labor is being held back by governmental and business refusal to recognize organized labor, he said. Because membership in unions is so small, 23 result of these actions, Canadian labor is subsidized by United States union money and political wjigbt, he claimed. The of recognition Is holding back membership, therefore minimizing national- ism within organized labor. "If 90 per cent of the people were organized, Canadian la- bor could afford to be na- Mr. Jamha said. happy AMA with current fee schedule The Alberta Medical Associa- tion says it is currently satis- fied with the present fee sched- ule for its members as applied by the Alberta Health Care In- surance Commission. However, the medical asso- ciation feels an existing pay- ment gap between sections of the medical profession should be closed. It says' doctors spe- cializing in different fields are being paid substantial differ- ences in amounts of, money by AHCIC. Although no official com- ment has .been released by the AMA, it is known that the pro- vincial medicare pay rate structure is under constant re- view by both participating groups. The review also in- cludes discussion of any other differences encountered. HUMIDIFIERS AND FURNACE AND REFRIGERATION SERVICE Charlton Hill Ltd. 1262 2nd Ave. S. Phone 328-3388 The problem of membership is particularly acute in the Prairies, where only 36 per cent of the labor force is organized. Mr. Jamha said, however, the membership rate is growing rapidly. Nationalism -within the Ca- nadian labor movement is also being held back because the federal government has not en- sured the right to collective bargaining, Mr. Jamha saia However, the Lf.S.-controlJed internationals are steadily re- leasing their hold on Canadian labor, and providing thic cuun 'c uniuus with more auton- omy. But, he added, full autonomy cannot be achieved until Cana- dians are allowed to elect thrBir own leaders to be represented an international executives. Canadian union leaders must be given the right to speak out on inter national situation! without restraint, he said. Funds collected 'rum the Ca- nadian membership oC interna- tional unions are sent to U.S. headquarters and are then re- tffl-ned to bank accounts in Canada. This is done because most Canadian labor actions requir- ing have to be augment- ed by U.S. labor funds. Mr. Jamha said it is Cheap- er lo draw or. and keep Cana; Han dues in Canadian sanlts. Good news Lethbridge city police breathalyzer units were on holiday during the Christ- inas New Years period. Not even one driver ran afoul of the breath machine during the holidays, includ- ing New Year's Eve. Police believe the "Police yourself" media campaign conducted through out the holidays, played a big part in reducing the number of i n- toxicated drivers. Basement suite question on city's doorstep again A group ol local residents has once again brought up the question of basement suite ren- tals in single-family houses. Complaints hive been regis- tered with the city by residents in the vicinity of 1413 10th Ave. S. who feel the building at that address is being turned into a boarding house. Alterations, have been carried out on the House to accommo- date more tenants but permis- sion has not been given by the Municipal Planning Commis- sion to have more than one family in the house. Basement suites are permis- sible in an R-l (single-family) zone but only with the approval of the MFC. The MPC considered the mat- ter Wednesday and gave the house owner one week to for- mally apply for approval at which time it will be dealt with on its merits. Without MPC approval, the owner is guilty of an offense under the zoning bylaw and subject to a fine of up to Automatic Electric seeking more business from AGT FIRST ON THE FIRST The New Year's boby in Lelhbridge was born to Mr. and Mrs. John Stearns of Pincher Creek.

An amendment to the tax proposal removed entirely the complex capital employed formula as a basis for income lax assessment of co-opera- tives. Te government r e placed this "total money involved1 concept 'with a provision for a 15 per cent withholding tax only on patronage dividends. A. W. Beattie, manager of lublic relations for the grain landling co operative, said he new tax legislation is sim- ile, indiscriminate and fair. It will be received as proper and equitable by tlie many housand members of co-opera- tives across Canada, he said.

He said the patronage re- funds are savings made by the member and are taxable in his hands. They arc not profits made by the co operative and should not be taxed as though they are. "The new formula recognizes these principles and it is just and said Mr. Beattie. LIKE BIRD The stickleback fish builds a nest much the way a bird does, the male fish using a sticky, thread-like secretion from the kidney to weave por- itons of water plants into a sort of basket. Alcan of Canada was cited as one of the nation's worst offend- ers in foreign countries. In other business, Tuxis elected its 1972 executive. Named as premier and dep- uty premier were Dave Blake- ley, former finance minister, and Pat Coristine, former pro- vincial secretary, both of Leth- bridge.

The site of the session is expected to be either Olds or Red Deer. U of L to help in study The department of economics at the University of Lethbridge will join forces with business leaders in southern. Alberta in an effort to chart the fjjlars economic growth of the area. The department plans a sur- vey to determine what com- munity leaders want for their particular areas and to estab- lish special goals for communi- ties with their own unique re- source potential.
