He said the initial task will be to develop broad goals fo the entire system and, from these, specific objectives wiil be determined. He said long-range goals are vitally necessary in the quick ly-changing world of education "Once we decide where w want to go, then we will hav to stop to take a look at where we ate now in relation t achieving those goals."

Anderson raps 'creeping socialism' By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Controls on the creeping so- cialism in Canada were called for by Mayor Andy Anderson at the Downtown Rotary Club luncheon Monday. Although the mayor made no specific reference in his state- ment, his appeal followed a summary of increased servic ing cost here and throughou the province "which is largely subsidized by taxation." Some controls have been es tablished by the city througl the policy of requiring devel opers to pay for servicing costs on the land they develop. In recent years, Mayor An derson said, these costs have Council continues city budget talks Transportation in the city re- ceived a large share of COUB- til's attention at the budget discussions Monday night. A temporary extension of the city bus schedule for about one lour in the evenings was fur- ther extended for three months, at which time a report will be submitted to council. A report covering the change rom early December to the end of the month showed rev- enues of ?81.44 and expen- ditures of during a 21 day period. The summary of transit sys- tem use covered only the bus runs between. and p.m. During that hour, an av- erage of JO persons per eve- ning on each mite used toe buses. On that basis, City Manager Tom Nutting said the extension was not economically feasible. Alderman Tom Ferguson re- minded council that it had assumed a policy of regarding lie transit system as a service, not a utility. With that In mind, council rated for the one hour exten- ion of service to be continued or three months. The estimated net expen- iture f or the transit system is up over last year. Earlier, a debate erupted ver a requested expen- iture for changing the color of be buses. Mr. Nutting told council con- sideration had been given to repainting the buses "mod blue and orange" to attract people to use th.5 buses. He cited the rail and airline ndustries which have changed the color of vehicles to attract iBssengers. Aid. Vera Ferguson said leople are in the habit of see- ng the buses -the color they are and moved that the expenditure >e deleted from the budget. ter motion was defeated with our aldermen and Mayor Andy Anderson opposed.

The colors of the buses wil change, but a changeover date has not been set. The debate continued when Mr. Nutting'said a ex- penditure for bus drivers' uni- forms included a proposal to match the color of the uni- forms with the new bus colors. That was too much for coun- cil, and the idea was rejectee by deletion 'of from the expenditure. Mr. Nutting said would be needed for uniform replace- ment regardless of a color change. The matter of snow removal came up again and a bare ma- jority of council voted to retain a budgeted for that pur- pose in 1972. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff mov- ed all but be deleted from the budget. AW. Vera Ferguson, Steve Koteh 'and Chick Chichester supported the resolution. Snow removal is an "enor- mous waste of Aid. Hembroff said. "Spring always comes and here, the Chinooks come sooner" to take the snow away, he added. Mr. Nutting said the expen- diture is justified, particularly for snow removal where drift- ing has occurred. Under fire department expen- diture, ambulance service came under serious scrutiny. Mr. Nutting told council In that department, 16 men are kept on call for possible am- bulance duty. A committee of council will be established to study the am- bulance service in town. The budget discussions will resume at 4 p.m. next Monday and the budget is expected to be approved Jate-r that evening at a regular meeting of council. For 1972, the estimated bud- get is with to come from the tax levy of 70 mills. The remainder comes from various other city taxes and revenues. risen to from per front foot. In Calgary, he said, ser- vicing costs are between and per front foot. The mayor's address was the third annual report to the Ro- larians on the operations of the city. That report included a brief summary of the 1972 city bud- get, now being reviewed by council. The budget calls for a projected 70-mill tax levy, compared with 68 last year. Mayor Anderson compared the two-mill increase here with hikes of nine mills in Calgary and 10 mills in Edmonton. He also compared Leth- bridge with large cities In gen- eral where "growth has gotten out of hand." That is not I problem here, he said. He referred to housing In this context and said the ac- commodation situation has been effectively met here, par- ticularly during the last three years. In 1971, 347 building permits were issued for single family bousing totalling Also, he said, a void is being filled by the assisted home ownership program which allows people in the lower in- come brackets id purchase their own homes. The mayor told the Rofcar- ians the city will begin pro- p-am to recover its land investment In West Leth- bridge this February. He said development of that area has taken longer than ex- jectel but that the delay was ,o assure controls to make West Lethbridge "a model part of the dty.'l Census is on Local census takers for 1972 lave begun collecting the orms mailed to residents last week.
