Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-11,Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LITMMIDOI HERALD - Frld«y, ^amury 11. 1W4 Trustee battle looms CALGARY (CP) - The Calgary public school board has upiieid its recent trustee pay raises, setting the stage for a serious battle over the role of trustees. In an intense and sometimes emotiwtal debate which did not end until midnight, the votinR with trustees Curran board rejected almost tbe entire package of resolutiwis introduced by trustees John Curran and Alex Proudfoot in opposition to the raises. instead, the board approved in principle the setting up of an independent commission to recommend trustee salaries. It also bowed to a public petition calling for a public meeting to discuss the pay raises. The public meeting will be held Jan. 23. The motion to roll back trustee salaries to $6,000 a year from $9,000 was defeated three votes to three with trustee Catherine Martini ing with and Proudfoot. Another motion, to reduce the chairman’s salary of $12,000 to its old level of $7,200 bit the dust four votes to two with trustees Curran and Proudfoot standing atone. FULL-TIME CONCEPT Board chairman Harald Gunderson, who is also the president of the Alberta School Trustees Association, was the main proponet of the full-time trustee concept. “Many people greatly underestimate the number of hours involved in being a trustee,” he told the board, adding that if a trustee is not devoting many hours to trusteeship, then he is not doing his job. VOLKSWAGEN SALES UP WOLFSBURG, Germany (AP) - The giant Volkswagen group. West Germany’s largest automobile producer, increased worldwide unit sales in 1973 by about five per cent to about 2.3 million vehicles, a preliminary com-paily report stated. In mon^ terms sales rose to about $6.1 billion. In 1972 sales were $5.7 billion. Li \o gasoline rationing in U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal energy office official said Thursday that curtailment in gasoline production may be much less than expected because the petroleum shortage in the United States is not as great as was feared. William Johnson, director of policy analysis for the energy office, said it may be necessary to reduce production by only about IS per cent Instead of 30 per cent, which was the original estimate. He also said that “evidence suggests we will be able to avoid rationing in the country.” Johnson told travel industry representatives at a conference that there is more fuel than expected because “people are conserving fuel.” In addition to conservation, warmer weather than normal and a leakage of oil throu|^ the Arab embargo have been factors contributing to the better - than - expected energy outlook Ice sculpture Making the most of a cold snap m Vancouver, Gary Haskins eyes his roe creation formed when he tied designs with string, then left garden hose spraying on it overniglit.
