Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 11, 1975 City Scene Civic government seminar set City aldermen will ask themselves what they see as the function of a civic government during a council administration seminar Jan. 18 at the Holiday Inn. A proposed agenda for the day long seminar, goes to city council's regular meeting Monday for approval. The agenda was prepared by a committee of Mayor Andy Anderson, Deputy Mayor Vera Ferguson, Aid. Tony Tobin, City Manager Allister Findlay, and Dennis O'Cqnnell, business development director. It includes discussions on the function of civic government in relationship with its citizens, with the surrounding district and with the provincial government. Purposes of the seminar are seen as arriving at a philosophy of civic administration and to inform council of "organization structures and various senior government agen- cies and programs." The objectives of such seminars, are seen as: A continuing re-definition of goals and objectives for Lethbridge civic government in the light of changing economic, social and political conditions; A continuing development of a sense of "team" between council and administration and interchange of information out- side the context of regular council meetings. Generation gap in employment The most worrisome problem facing the manufacturing sector of the economy is the attitude of young people to work, a seminar on manpower was told Friday in Lethbridge. The attitude of some younger employees is worrisome because mangers don't understand it, said Dwight Purdy, general manager of Canadian Sugar Factories Co. Mr. Purdy said many young people take "a day's sick leave after every resent criticism and discipline and have an aversion to doing any hard work. Three hurt in auto mishap Three Lethbridge residents received minor injuries Friday in a two-car collision on 13th Avenue North, east of Stafford Drive, that caused an estimated damage to the City police were told Takayuk Kubota, Ave. N., was driving west on 13th Avenue and while in the 1200 block pull- ed to the right and started to make a U turn. His vehicle was in collision with a car driven by Larry Keinick, Stafford Dr. Mr. Keinick was travelling east on 13th Avenue when the- collision occurred about p.m. A passenger in his car, Larry Rudolph, 2022 19th St. N., suffered minor leg injuries. Two passengers in the Kubota vehicle, Sochi Izumi and Teameako Kubota, were taken to St. Michael's Hospital. They were treated for minor injuries and released. Trimester delay considered Tarleck seeks council approval for salting streets The use of salt on city streets will again be a topic for city council Monday. Aid. Bob Tarleck is asking his fellow aldermen to allow the engineering department to use "strictly controlled" amounts of salt on major thoroughfares for the rest of the winter. The resolution also calls for a reappraisal of the use of salt by council before next fall. Aid. Tarleck says in his resolution, which is one of five sub- missions to council's Monday meeting dealing with snow and ice control, that researchers generally agree vehicular corrosion is not serious enough to prevent the use of salt in ice control. This is particularly true in Lethbridge where the normal at- mospheric corrosion rate is relatively low, he says. Another reason for the resolution, Aid. Tarleck adds, is the engineer- ing department estimates the cost of city snow removal and ice control could be reduced by 50 per cent with the use of Salt. A brief controversy erupted last month when it was revealed the city had used small amounts of salt dur- ing the pre Christmas blizzard on hilly areas, but council defended City Manager Allister Findlay's decision to use salt. A similar resolution before coun- cil last winter was thrown out with only one alderman Vera Ferguson in favor. Council will also deal Monday with a resolution from Aid. Tony Tobin calling for sidewalks at all bus stops to be kept clear of ice and snow to allow bus passengers to get on and off city buses safely. And there's a letter from E. S. Vaselenak criticizing the city's snow removal record so far this winter. "Frankly the whole non exercise was a complete fiasco in the view of many of the public and the motorists and says Mr. Vaselenak, who has begun attending all council meetings to prepare for his announced candidacy for mayor in 1977. With a pointed reference to the sale of the city power plant, Mr. Vaselenak suggests the city could extinguish every other residential street light, and the money it saved on the purchase of electricity could be used for snow removal. Council received one other letter, from a senior citizen, complaining that many residents don't clear their sidewalks of snow, making it difficult for people without cars to get around.

Stewart said the board should consider delaying calendar changes until the 1976 1977 calendar is published, even though the structure of courses is changed. "You can't commit staff beyond the contract they said Dr. Stewart. Making definite changes in the calendar could put the ad- ministration in a bad negotiating position, he said. Board Chairman Bob Babki pointed out that the change to three entries a year is already definite for nursing, but re- quires further approval on .financial grounds for other schools. The current system involves two 16 week semesters with an 18 hour teaching week. The new system would involve three 12 week trimesters with a 24 week years. Move forward with the academic improvement and handle the financial stumbling blocks later, he suggested. Student Services Director Dean Stetson pointed out the calendar deadline is Jan. 15. By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer The collision of a Time Air Twin Otter and a provincial government plane Friday at the Lethbridge airport was the first accident Time Air has been involved in since it began operating in 1966, says the airlines president. The Time aircraft, with three crew members and 12 passengers aboard, collided with a provincial government Beech 100 twin engined craft While taxiing to the runway for takeoff to Calgary Friday morning. Stubb Ross, Time Air president, said the Otter's brake line broke as it began taxiing off the ramp in front of the terminal, slid out of control about 100 feet and came to a stop between the other plane and a fence. The right wing of the government plane was twisted upward and went through the Hospital proposals going to government SMILEY'S PLUMBING GLASS LINED WATER HEATERS INSTALLED Phone 328-2176 Recommendations re- garding changes in hospital facilities in Lethbridge should be in government hands within a month, the chairman of a health study committee here said Friday. Ross Campbell, chairman of the health study steering com- mittee, said the final report will be, prepared this month, and the committee will then concentrate on making recommendations regarding health care in all of Southern Alberta. The report to government will carry both recommen- dations from a study done by a group of Toronto consultants and a report from a sub- committee of the steering committee. The sub-committee report, which is expected to both challenge and support parts of the consultants' work, was finished last week, Dr. Campbell said. The Alberta Hospital Ser- vices Commission will be reviewing the steering com- mittee's final report. Dr. Campbell, a Taber physician, was speaking at a press conference to officially release a brief outline of the findings of the Toronto con- sultants. The Herald earlier obtained a copy of the study and published stories on the report Dec. 12 and 13. Recommendations include a revamping of operating rooms in the Lethbridge Municipal, moving all obstetrical ser- vices to the LMH, moving all pediatric services to St. Michaels and upgrading both hospitals' emergency facilities. Dr. Campbell said now that part of the report is almost completed the steering can begin concentrating on health care throughout the region. Plans for that study have not yet begun. In a prepared release Dr. Campbell said if the AHSC accepts some of the steering committee recommendations it could take up to four years to complete the changes proposed for the two Lethbridge hospitals. window on the co pilot's side of the Otter. Mr. Ross said the break in the brake line of the Otter was "probably due to the cold weather." "There wasn't enough room or time to control the he claimed. No one was in- jured and the 12 passengers were later flown to Calgary on another Time aircraft. Federal ministry of tran- sport officials, as well as in- surance adjusters, will be investigating the incident. There has been no estimate of the damage. Mr. Ross said he has "repeatedly" asked those in the airport manager's office not to allow planes to park in the area that the provincial government aircraft was using. "I asked them about it Thursday. I told them that area is a poor place for planes to the airline's presi- dent said. But Airport Manager John Fifield disagreed with Mr. Ross, saying, "I don't think the area where the provincial aircraft was parked restricts movement of planes on the ramp. "Most aircraft manoeuvr- ing on the main ramp is done immediately in front of the main Mr. Fifield said. Mr. Fifield said the area to the left of the terminal is a parking area on the rarnp and not only doesn't restrict movement of planes about to take off but, "in my opinion it doesn't restrict the crash crew from moving onto the field." By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer A new program to provide on the job training for young people interested in agriculture was announced Friday in Lethbridge by Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer. The Green Certificate Program will use Alberta's better farmers to help train people in skills needed on farms, he told a Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce man- power seminar. About 50 persons attended the meeting at the El Rancho Convention Centre. Papers from the conference will go to the next Chamber director's meeting Jan. 22. The new program will be co- ordinated with existing agricultural training, he said. Agri-business management programs are needed to produce people with knowledge of agricultural processing, said Dr. Horner. The industry developing in Southern Alberta offers a good field for training on the job, he added. Processing food here offers the best way to meet tran- sport costs, he said. As the Lethbridge area progresses in food production, there will be more factory processing of food to be heated at the table in infrared ovens. Construction short of tradesmen Despite recession, and despite world economic insecurity seeping into Alber- ta, the outlook is generally good with overemployment and jobs are going begging, he said. The deputy premier said Alberta in 1971 started the first provincial manpower department, in association with the labor department, and an advanced education department. "The proper use of our post- secondary system has to be the he said. "To direct young people into the skills and give them the skills to match the job openings available Alberta." With the skills needed in agriculture, the position of the hired man must be upgraded, he said. Most farmers now realize they have to compete with other industries for labor. A person operating a machine is skilled, he said. Upgrading job titles is a first step, changing "hired man" to "farm manager" or he suggested. "The attitude we have had in the past towards the typical hired man has to said Dr. Horner. In addition to young people entering the labor force, man- power needs can also be met by immigration from other parts of Canada and other countries, or temporary foreign workers, he said. The latter are a delicate topic, but should be con- sidered, he said. Farm labor pool 'drained' Industry no longer has a large labor pool on Alberta farms, and the trend may be reversing itself, a seminar on manpower was told Friday in Lethbridge. Farmers are beginning to compete with industry for available labor, said Sherry Clark, regional director for the Alberta department of agriculture. The seminar was sponsored jointly by the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, the city, the Alberta manpower and labor department and the Canada Manpower Centre. About 50 persons attended. Mr. Clark said farmers must improve their "people image" so young people in cities will realize there are opportunities in agriculture as good as those anywhere else. Surveys show that after basic necessities are taken care of, money ranks fifth in factors affecting how workers rate their jobs. Their attitude to the work and the boss's at- titude to them, are more im- portant, he said. Mr. Clark also said there are growing welfare rolls on the reserves, despite the labor shortage.

The need can be met by im- migration of skilled tradesmen, young people entering construction careers or upgrading the skills of per- sons already in the industry, said Clare Malmberg of Kenwood Engineering Construction Ltd., who represented the Lethbridge Construction Association. Mr. Malmberg said construction is a service in- dustry, carrying out jobs created by government, business and housing needs. But government has used the industry as an economic tool, to level out the hills and valleys of the business cycle. The industry doesn't know how much it will be doing in six months, even at the close of a record year. Canadian construction last year totalled billion, including million in Lethbridge. Between million and million of the value of Lethbridge construc- tion was in labor costs, earned by a work force of to 000 people. They are skilled people, he said. Even a laborer has the skills necessary to many construction operations. Seniors' brief in first draft The first draft of a brief in support of a proposed senior citizens' centre has been prepared, Leonard Halmrast has reported. Mr. Halmrast, president of the Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens, said the first draft of the brief to the city has been done. The one to the province will be slightly different. The briefs will go Jan. 27 to a meeting of a steering com- mittee representing all senior citizen groups in the city. If approved, they will be ready for presentation to the two levels of government, he said. The committee will also elect officers at the meeting. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Esl. 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P.
