Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-10,Lethbridge, Alberta 1S-THE LCTHBRIDQE HERALD—Thurtday. January 10.1974 Bus service scheduled for night students An evening bus service will begin operation to th« Lethbridge Community College Jan. 21, its board of governors was informed Wednesday. The city transit system will provide the service but the college has agreed to absorb the losses if there are too few people riding the buses to relurn the operating costs. The college is receiving about SIX ap^icatlons an hour from people interested in its Priority Employment Program courses, the director of student services told the governors Wednesday. PEP is a provincial government project designed to give temporary work or education training to the unemployed during the winter months. The college has already received 246 applications for a passible 230 seats in the 15 PEP courses. Jim MacNeil says most applicants 'are interested in welding and health-related courses such as health assistant and day-car aide. Some courses have more applications than seats, but others like the host-hostess course have very few applicants, he noted. The governors approved a request by the school of technical-vocational training to change its name to the school of technology and trades. The name change was requested because the old name was not appropriate for some new courses being proposed for the school. The college’s attempt to acquire a parcel of land for future expansion has reached a stalemate. The college has made an offer on two parcels of land but hasn't received a reply from the owners, The Herald was told following the closed session of the meeting.Alberta pessimistic about energy talks planned for Ottawa Producer^ consumer Clouds of steam and smoke billow skyvi/ard from the city power plant just west of Lethbridge in the river valley while the University of Lethbridge keeps a wary eye on its source of electrical power. The U of L buys electricity in bulk from the city at a rate of about $12,000 per month and then uses its own distribution system to make use of the power. The power bill from the city for 1974 is expected to be about $144,000.

Superintendent Ralph Himsl reported that the provincial government would not support structural alterations to the building, though renovation of the library and science rooms would be considered. The province also suggested the services of an architect were not needed because the support structure would not be affected. The board decided to engage one because cost estimates would be needed to obtain provincial approval. The province would not support new construction since the classroom utilization rate in the separate schools is less than that r^uired under the school building freeze.

Chairman John Boras said the three policies — one each for teachers, principals and administrators — could be made into one, though examples of conferences and courses might differ from group to group. The three policies all involved paying the expenses of board employees’ attendance at activities for professional upgrading or exchange of iaeas. Several examples were given in each policy. Trustee Steve Vaselenak suggested that the phrase “the board will. . . provide in the... budget” be changed to "the hoard may provide” so as not to make the policy compulsory. Trustee Steve Vadelenak said teachers were dU-criminated against in the policies when compared with principals. The teacher development policy would have allowed |15 a night for accommodation away from home for seminars and one-half of the cost of accommodation for non-credit short couses. The principal development policy would have allowed accommodation at costa way from home. Mr. Vaselenak also asked to know how many separate school teachers belonged to and were active in specialist councils of the Alberta Teachers’ Association. In other business, the trustees; —Authorized the attendance of maintenance supervisor Borys Gleb at the maintenance supervision workshop in Edmonton May 8 to 10; —Agreed to hear the report of the French committee at the second meeting in February and the industrial arts evaluation committee at the first meeting in February; —Asked the city street crossings committee to meet regarding the comer of 5th Avenue and Mayor Magrath Drive. —Tabled a scheduled presentation by the Canada Games Society until the next board meeting because of a time conflict with the society’s board of directors meeting, —Received an enrolment report which showed a cumulative drop of 52, to 2,235 from 2,286, since Aug. 31,1973, and of seven since May 31, 1973. Pincher Creek schools mea post; okayed for Himsl “Tü The Lethbridge separate school board received notice Wednesday that the minister of education has approved the appointment of superintendent Ralph Hlmsel as parttime superintendent for the Pincher Creek separate schools. The Lethbridge trustees approved the arrangement Nov, 28. M.r Himsl and his staff will provide supervisory services to the Pincher Creek system trustees. Pincher Creek will pay 10 per cent of the superintendent’s salary and benefits, plus exposes for providing the services. Mr. Himsl’s salary is ^4,000 » year.

F, Q. Quo says the model curriculum will be especially helpful for high school students who have no Idea what subjects to study during initial semesters. Dr, Quo says the U of L views the model curriculum as an aid to the individual counselling sessions with academic advisors available to each student entering the U of L. "By recommending a selection of courses each year,” says Dean Quo, “we may reach students reluctant to avail themselves of academic advisement, and may thus guide these students in choosing the type of courses most beneficial for their subsequent studies,’' he said. The model curriculum ad* vises students to study a minimum of two distinct subjects from three categories and at least one from each remaining list, for a total of five courses, the number usually taken each semester. Herald Staff Writer The Alberta government will not be taking an op' timlstic outlook to the National Energy Conference to be held in Ottawa later this month, an Edmonton MLA says. “We don’t go to the conference optimistic about it because it is a single, short, hastily-planned event,” David King (PC—Ekim. Highlands) told a Lethbridge Chamber of Sunny South slips Lethbridge lagged behind other Alberta centres in hours of sunshine enjoyed during December, reports the Kenyon Field weather office. The sun shone for 55.1 hours at Lethbridge during the month compared to one of the province’s sunniest spots, Calgary with SO.O hours. Medicine Hat enjoyed 70.8 hours of sun and Edmonton 67.0 hours. But the city was still probably the warmest spot in the province with the exception of Pincher Creek. The mean temperature for the city for the month was 23.0 degrees compared to 26.7 degrees for Pincher Creek, Lethbridge experienced a high of 51 degrees while Pincher Creek reached 50 degrees at one point in the month. The coldest spot in a list of centres released by the weather office was Edmonton where the temperature reached 32 degrees below for a mean temperature of 8.8 degrees. ither mean temperatures were: Calgary, 19.0; Cranbrook, B.C. 28.0; Medicine Hat, 19.6; Red Deer, 11.2. Other highs were: Calgary, 48; Cranbrook, 41; Edmonton, 38; Medicine Hat, 48; Red Deer, 45. Other lows were; Lethbridge, -14; Calgary, -14; Cranbrook, -11; Medicine Hat, -14; Pincher Creek, -16; Red ■ Deer, -23. Inches of snowfall and precipitation were: Lethbridge, 8.2 and .53; Calgary, 5.9 and .34; Cranbrook, 10.3 and 1.75; Edmonton, 13.7 and 1.02; Medicine Hat, 7,9 and -75; Pincher Creek, 7.4 and .49; Red Deer, 9.0 and .73. Snow depth in inches at month’s end was; Lethbridge, 2; Calgary, 1; Cranbrook, 5; Edmonton, 11; Medicine Hat, a trace; Pincher Creek, 3; Red Deer, 13.

However, Mr. King said one battle doesn’t make a war and future meetmgs between the federal and provincial governments could be fruitful. Mr. King said the “potential windfall gain" from the price increases of the energy crisis should not go to the federal government or to the oil companies but to the people of Alberta. “But there are two qualifications; “The first is that part of the mcreased price is the result of higher costs payable by the oil companies. These costs can be determined. Basically they reflect the replacement price of oil. (These costs will increase). “Generally speaking, the federal government has frozen the price of Alberta crude per barrel at ?3.88. “The replacement price today is considered by professionals to be $4,12 to |4.20 per barrel — and rising. “Can the people of Alberta afford to sell — can the oil companies afford to sell — for $3.88 a product we would have to pay $4.12 to buy on the open market. “So the oil companies are entitled to, must have, increased revenue." The second qualification, Mr. King said, is that Albertans must assist all Canadians through the energy crisis. Mr. King said Alberta will not turn off the taps. It is willing to stage in price increases to lessen impact and cooperate in any reasonable way to achieve self-sufficiency, but he didn't see any reason to go beyond that. General Motors of Canada has not reduced its car price and Albertans buy above world market prices, Mr. King said. The same is true of Massey-Ferguson. "The people of Alberta must achieve a higher price and a higher return. “As a province that buys at world market prices^ we must sell at world market prices. , We cannot long afford to be charitable, or we will be impoverished,” Constitutionally, the provinces are owners of all lands, mines, minerals and royalties, Mr. King said. This cannot be changed without legislation in both the provincial and federal l^islatures. At the same time, Mr. King said, the federal government has rights which are basically unquestioned. (For example, the relation of trade and commerce and the preservation of peace, order and good government). The crucial questions, he claimed, are this: “What are the unreasonable constraints on our ownership and at what point does the exercise of a right by one party nullify the rights of others." Answering a question after his talk,' Mr. King said If Alberta and Ottawa cannot solve the issue of control of Alberta’s oil themselves, the matter would end up in the Supreme Court of Canada. Airport tiax ba^e should be changed The Lethbridge Chamber of Comerce board Wednesday approved a letter be sent to the federal government recommending its new airport tax, which becomes effective this year, be based on a percentage of a traveller’s ticket rather than the proposed $2.80-per-passenger tax. The board felt the $2.80 tax was discriminatory against passengers taking shorter flights and the same results could be attained by taking a percentage of a traveller’s ticket. * • * Recommendations were made that Remembrance Day be made the second Monday in November to avoid the confusion that occurred this year when Nov. 11 fell on a Sunday. The matter was referred to the civic affairs committee for further study. * « * The board approved a letter be sent to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce describing the local New Year’s Eve free bus service. It felt the bus service was a success and an idea other chambers might want to make use of. * * « The board learned that »0 per cent of the chamber’s 1973-74 operating budget has been collected in the first four months of the budget year. This is well ahead of last year’s performance. The 197374 budget is $35,000. * * • The board deferred discussion on daylight saving time until B.C. goes on daylight time next month. Pension man plans visit A Calgary - based Old Age Security Administration field officer, Paul Bellman, will be at the Lethbridge Canada Pension Plan office, 740 4th Ave. S. today. Mr. Bellman will answer questions and assist with applications for the guaranteed income supplement and deal with problem cases referred to him. Pension plan office hours are 8 a.m to 4;30 p.m. Mayor states ineligibility Mayor Andy Anderson ha$ declared himself ineligible to vote on the city power plant issue because of his directorship on Canadian Western Natural Gas. The conflict of interest situation exists because the city is a major gas company customer. There are two gas-fired turbines in operation at the power plant. The Herald reported earlier the mayor’s conflict of interest existed because of corporate ties between Calgary Power and Canadian Western Natural Gas.
