Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, January 1i, 197S Dogs, voting, untidiness before council tonight The dog bylaw, a bylaw providing for a voter declaration system in the next civic election, and a report on three untidy city businesses are among agenda items facing city council tonight. The public meeting starts at p.m. Amendments to the dog bylaw before council include a section that would re- quire dog owners to keep their dogs on leashes. It also makes several changes to the dog licence fee and would raise the fine for dogs running at large on second offence from to and on third offence from to Fines for the first offence would remain at Senior citizens would not be charged the fee for dog licences if the bylaw passes, but they will still have to go to city hall to get a licence. Passage of the bylaw would also reduce the licence fee by half for dogs acquired or brought into the city after Aug. 31, of any year. The bylaw would also make it possible for a dog owner to keep more than two dogs in a single family dwelling by pay- ing a special licence fee of for each dog over the number of two. That bylaw could raise some hackles on council, but another bylaw instituting a voter declaration system for future civic elections is expected to get a quick three readings. Council accepted a resolution from Aid. Bob Tarleck calling for the voter declara- tion system Dec. 2. It will do away with voters' lists, re- quiring voters to simply declare their eligibility at the polls in order to cast ballots in a civic election. The system of voter registration used until now which required renters to register to get on the voters list while property owners were automatically placed on it, drew criticisms of dis- crimination in the last election campaign. Council will also get status reports Mon- day on three city businesses that have been notified they are contravening the city's untidy and unsightly premises bylaw, but have so far failed to clean up satisfactorily. The three firms are Dieppe Service, 207 28th St. S., National Salvage Co. Ltd., 206 33rd St. N., and Southern Feeds Ltd., 3227 2nd Avenue N. Chancellor nominations expected Saturday Reports from the nominating committee for chancellor and the honorary degrees committee are on the agenda for Saturday's Univer- sity of Lethbridge senate meeting- The senate named a three member committee in November to search for a replacement for outgoing chancellor James Oshiro. Dr. Oshiro resigned effective March 1, giving personal com- mitments as his reason. The senate committee, along with appointees from the general faculties council and the U of L Alumni Association, is to submit at least two names to the senate, in time for the new chancellor to assume duties in March. The honorary degrees com- mittee submits a slate of nominees to the senate, after- reviewing all nominations. Among other business, senators are also expected to agree on an implementation date for the report on the role of the senate, adopted at the 5-PIECE FIESTA TV TRAY SET Consists of 4 king size trays, and 1 deluxe space saving rack on casters for easy rolling.

Also on the agenda is enlargement of the geographical base of the 55- member body. Parity 'stumbling block' Parity with British Colum- bia workers is the major stumbling block in the path of hospital conciliation talks starting Tuesday in Calgary, a management spokesman said today. Tom Grothen, a labor relations consultant with the Alberta Hospital Association, said it's hard to say how long a settlement will take in talks with the Canadian Union of Public Employees. As long as. the union is ada- mant on parity with B.C., he is not hopeful, he said in a telephone interview from Ed- monton. Ian Downie, a Lethbridge based CUPE field represen- tative, said parity is necessary because Alberta is losing hospital employees to B.C. "I don't think that's a stumbling block, I think it's a he told The Herald. Mr. Downie said earlier talks had dealt with contract vvordage and he hopes this will be the money stage. Manage- ment has been "procrastinating" on talking money, he said. BILL GROENEN photo Wind, dirt mar oval christening Lethbridge's new speedskating oval received its christening Saturday and Sunday as 70 Alberta skaters vied for the opportunity to represent Alberta in the Canada Winter Games. Sportsplex Manager Ray Lambert said high winds Sunday made skating difficult for all, as airborn dirt slowed the ice. Mr. Lambert said gusts of wind made Sunday's events a "disaster" for young skaters, "literally blowing them over." He said a fence is to built before the Games to shelter the oval.

Wreck cause still sought Few indicate intent to speak on land use Only three notices of intent to present briefs at the.first public hearings on land use in Alberta have been received at Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. But officials at the Alberta Land Use Forum told The Herald this morning they ex- pect at least six or seven briefs at both locations. The hearing in Medicine Hat is scheduled for Jan. 28 in the Provincial Building. Lethbridge's hearing is set for Jan. 30 in the Exhibition Pavilion. All hearings start at 10 a.m. There are 13 other hearings in Alberta following the one in Lethbridge. Briefs which were presented to the forum through a series of infor- mational meetings in 1974 are expected to be represented at the public hearings. Topics for the land use forum include: family farm, country residence development, foreign ownership, communal and corporate farming, land and housing costs, recreational land needs, urban growth and the rights of a land owner. The briefs from the public hearing and information meetings will be compiled and included in a brief to the Alberta cabinet for a new land use act. Canadian Pacific Rail of- ficials in Lethbridge are still guessing at what caus_ed a five car derailment in'the CP Rail yard early Saturday mor- ning. A caboose and an empty propane tank car were tipped over and three other cars had. wheels off the track. Damage was estimated at .RODNEY 401. 5th St. S. Free Call 3Z7-3364 GEORGE Haig Bldg. 601 6lh Av.. S. Call 328-6133 ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC 328-4M5 Martin Lypka, CP Rail assistant superintendent for Lethbridge and district, said the cause still is not known. He said a foreign object between the rails could have lifted the wheels of the caboose and started a chain reaction. Another guess, he said, could be an over speed im- pact, moving too fast when hooking up the rail cars. "This could have started a whip lash effect, sending the cars off the track." Mr. Lypka said workers had the track cleared by 4 p.m. Saturday. Operations were not interrupted. Hugh Homer said here. Acting partly on a resolu- tion passed at the annual meeting of Unifarm in December and from reports from staff, Dr. Horner said he hopes all electric power lines can be located on a grid to stay out of the way of sprinkler irrigation systems which move across the com- plete width of fields. The last holdup to the new plan is to determine the perimeters of areas served by Rural Electrification Associations and Calgary Power to set the boundaries. Stilj on irrigation, Dr. Horner said construction of on stream storage facilities to make more water available to Southern Alberta residents will depend on the pressures for water. A prediction from Environ- ment Minister Bill Yurko that no construction would begin for five to eight years was tempered by Dr. Horner. "I don't think it will take that long." Dr. Horner also reiterated his. department's "stand to raise the importance of irriga- tion in the water use criteria. When water is in short supply, domestic users are given first priority to its use. Municipal districts are given second priority with industry third and agriculture fourth. Under present plans, agriculture will change places with industry to give a greater importance of the production of food to available water supplies: Dr. Horner said his depart- ment is also committed to increasing the number of acres of irrigation land within existing irrigation districts Concert draws 40 An estimated 40 persons attended a recorder concert, and show of watercolor works Saturday evening at the Lethbridge Public Library. The works of 10 artists are represented in the art display, which continues until Jan. 31. rather than opening new tracts of land. He said an example is the present project of replacing the Bassano Dam and the Brooks Aqueduct to provide better service to the Eastern Irrigation District at Brooks. He said introduction of large parcels of land to irriga- tion in the Redcliff Ronolane region northwest of Medicine Hat would depend on the supp- ly of water. This particular area would be serviced from the Eastern Irrigation. District which already has a problem with a lack of water storage facilities to meet its own needs. A rash of requests from farmers, particularly from the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District, to make improvements to their land was welcomed by Dr. Horner. He said if these farmers want to make renovations to their land faster than the en- tire district, he will help them obtain the needed loans from the Alberta Agricultural Development Corporation. He cautioned farmers to work through the district to maintain continuity of rehabilitation work. They'll get well faster with flowers! FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est. 1922 PHONE 3J7-6565 E. r. FOX, C.D.M.
