Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-07,Lethbridge, Alberta C of r. in 1974; ‘If we could get air terminal upgraded, that , would justify chamber’s existence'Lethbridge chamber president,.. city pharmacist Ozzie Stubbs By MURDOCH MtcLEOD Herald Suff Writer Improved air transport facilities will be a priority item for the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce this year, the president of the chamber said Saturday, Ozzie Stubbs told The Herald: “If we could get the air terminal upgraded and the facilities improved, that alone would justify the chamber’s existence.” The city and the chamber were both active in attempting to secure better facilities, said Mr Stubbs, but the ministry of transport and a major airline would both have to be won over. He said the food processing plants in the city and the traffic in passengers and finished goods would all make better facilities and more flights worthwhile Trade with the Far East might also benefit, he said, since a Banic of Tokyo delegation k is impressed with Southern Alberta during a tour in the fall. He said the Japanese are interested in investing in Canadian industry and buying Canadian manufactured products. The prospects of both the city and the chamber for the coming year are good, he said. The chamber’s membership is growing and has reached about 600 firms and 2,000 individuals. Membership, said Mr. Stubbs, “is bound to go up as business pecóle come to view the chamber as the last line of defence of private enterprise — a united voice when speaking to government.” He'said government now comes to the chamber of commerce for business viewpoints on economic questions. He said the chamber is picking up steam in its work, and attributed it to the members’ involvement. “We have enthusiastic members working on the committees and trying to do something for the community and the area as a whole,” he said. The chamber is involved in work for the 1975 Canada Winter Games, he said The chamber president also praised city council and the civic admlnistrati(Hi for the downtown development scheme. The shopping centre would force smaller merchants to innovate and be more competitive, as well as bringing in more business, he said. He predicted a real growth of five per cent to six per cent in economic indicators such as bank clearances and sales transactions. Because of inflation, he said, this might mean a monetary growth of close to 10 per cent. The building of the Syncrude plant near Fort McMurray might even help Lethbridge, he said, because of the multiplier effect of spending large amounts of money. One problem facing Lethbridge is that of the location of feedlots, said Mr. Stubbs. The question is a long-term one, he said, and will have to be settled when available Und is used up. In the meantime, the question will have to be faced with a practical approach and a fair deal given to the feedlot operators. If they do move, they will have to be fairly compensated, he said Province extends freight aid plan for feed grains Rapidly dwindling stocks of feed grains in three Southern Alberta districts has prompted the provincial government to extend freight assistance for livestock and poultry producers Many feed grain users, particularly in the municipal districts of Pincher Creek and Cardston and the County of Warner, are being forced to haul feed grains as far as 150 miles because of insufficient local supplies, With stocks of freed grains available to Southern Alberta farmers as far as 150 miles north of Lethbridge, the provincial government has announced freight assistance for livestock and poultry producers The feed grain freight assistance has been added to a forage freight assistance program announced TSov 6 Under the new program, feedlot operators, livestock and poultry owners and feed mills will receive 20 cents per hundredweight on wheat, oats and barley that have to be transported more than 100 miles. The maximum grant is $1,000 per applicant Gordon Ross of Lethbridge, regional livestock specialist with the Alberta Department MOHACO (PATTERN) CRYSTAL PILSNER GLASSES rftg. $1.95 Sale ..... .98 While Stock Laelat DOWNTOWN of Agriculture, said this morning there is very little feed grain grown south of Champion being used now He said either the teed grains supply from Southern Alberta has been depleted or, more likely, being held in storage. He said local feed mills are now haulmg feed grains from as far as Three Hills and Drumheller to meet their commitments for processed livestock and poultry feeds. Since the program is retroactive to Jan. 1, all eligible producers are advised to maintain receipts of transactions until application forms can be obtained from municipal district and county offices after Jan. 31. Producers wishing to buy or sell feed grains or forage supplies are advised to use the feed and foraee exchange operated by the Alberto Grain Commission at centres throughout Alberta. Mr Ross said there have been more offers to buy and to sell both feed grains and forage through the Lethbridge office. He said two or three sales are completed weekly through his office. Barley prices have settled at a stable level, he said, but because oat supplies are extremely limited in the south, prices will likely continue to creep upwards. Damage heavy in weekend trailer fire A fire Saturday afternoon in a house trailer has caused an estimated |4,000 to $5,000 damage, but no injuries were reported. The fire, in a trailer owned by Allan Jones and parked Just north of the city along Stafford Drive, started as Mr. Jones was attempting to thaw frozen pipes with a torch.

E. McTavish says the shortage of applicants to act as big brothers is such that only four relationships have been estabhshed between a big brother and a little brother. The association was formed a year ago. “We have about 500 fatherless boys in Lethbridge who could benefit from the friendship of a well-adjusted man," says Dr. McTavish He says boys who are potential little brothers are referred from many sources — teachers, social workers, and other agencies among them. The boys come from a wide variety of backgrounds, he says. What they have in common is a lack of the necessary adult male influence provided Land for school may become park Footing preparation Work began late last week on footings excavation for the $4.46 million bridge spanning Oldman River, the first actual work on the bridge itself Road construction is well under way with about 700,000 cubic yards of dirt moved. John McFarland, resident engineer for the consultant Stanley Associates said this morning 50 per cent of the road work has been completed The 6th Avenue South bridge is scheduled for completion in December.

PIMM32I-39II Christmas Day, is celebrated with carolling as Ukrainians in this city try to visit all other Ukrainians attending two local churches — the Ukrainian Catholic Church and Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church. Christmas Eve is a solemn occasion so the celebration does not actually start until Christmas Day During New Year’s, next Monday, Ukrainian’s collect holy water and bring it to their homes. Priests then visit the homes and sprinkle parishioners with holy water Purpose is to sanctify the homes About 1,000 area-residents celebrate the Ukrainian holiday. Coins stolen About 11,200 worth of centennial coin sets, and other items, was sUrfen Saturday night during a break-in at a city business The goods stolen were being stored in a safe in a garage, at the rear of 271# lOth Ave. A S. The garage, owned by Steve P«M, was entered by breaking a window in a door. A 13-acre parcel of land in Southeast Lakeview will be designated as a playground or public park, if pubkc school trustees agree at their Tuesday meeting to offer it for sale to the city. The land was acquired by the school board in 1961 for a future school building site, but strict government control on school building construction has all but eliminated it as a site for a new school “Future school buildings are much more likely to be required in both north and west Lethbridge,” the public school's director of personnel says. Dr Gerry Probe also suggests a school site other than the 13-acre parcel would be provided if the city extends its wundaries to the south or east of the city limits The site was rejected twice in the last nine years when ad- Alcohol, drug commission to meet here The Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission is scheduled to meet in Lethbridge dunng February as part of a program to involve persons from various communities in the policymaking concerning alcohol and drugs. Norm Cowie, director of the AADAC office in Lethbridge, said today a tentative date, Feb. 14, has been set for the meeting. ditional classroom space was needed in the city. In 1965 the school board decided to construct an addition to the Lakeview Elementary School rather than build a new building and later it decided to build an addition to the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute rather than build a new high school on the 13-acre site If the trustees decide Tuesday to ifiontinue to hold the land for a possible future school site, they will tie asked to approve a proposed subdivision for the Lakeview area that would designate the land as a school and playground site Property owners in the area have submitted a replottmg scheme for the approval of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission To complete their neighborhood plan for subdividing the area, the citizens need to know what the school board intends to do with its property Landowners in the area would have to pay a percentage of the cost of purchasing the land from the school board if the trustees decide to sell it by a father, older brother, uncle or grandfather Both big brothers and little brothers are screened, and they are matched to provide the most effective guidance to the little brother, he says. The screening of volunteers can take some time because in Lethbridge it is done by social workers who volunteer their services The screeners have full-time jobs with other agencies, he says, and can only wflrk for the big brother organization if they have a free evening. For this reason. Dr McTavish looks forward to when the association may be large enough and active enough to have some full-time staff Male and female volunteers are needed now to co-ordinate the group, he says, as well as iiiL'U lO ufiCOiTiv big brothers. The Big Brother program aims to prevent boys getting into difficulty for lack of adult male influence usually provided by a father, he says It is a preventive service, not a referral agency for juvenile delinquents. But fatherless boys are six times less likely to become juvenile delinquents with a big brother than without, he claims Dr McTavish says the program tries to achieve its aim by having a “mature, stable man of good character provide sympathy, guidance and understanding” to the boy The big brother does not have to function as a substitute social worker He only has to spend three or four hours per week with a boy and offer the same companionship he would have from his father It costs little to be a big brother, says Dr McTavish. Preventing boys from going wrong is certainly better than keeping them in reform schools at a cost of several thousand dollars per year, he adds Cf rtiliid Dmlil IHiclMiiic CLIFF BUICK.
