CANADA SAFEWAY LIMITED UIC payments are a bit late One out of every 10 persons applying for unemployment in- surance is experiencing some form of payment delay in the Lethbridge region. Junes R. Bate, manager of the Lethbridce Unemployment Insurance Commission office says the payment disruption re- sults from new claim proce- dures because of changes in the Unemployment Insurance Act. Those have been suffering UIC payment delays have been further holding up efforts to correct the situation by placing daily calls to the of- fice demanding their money, he said. Claimants who call in every day are using up -time that could be more usefully spent finalizing other claim applica- tions, he said. Every time a claimant calls the UIC office to inquire when payments are to arrive, offi- cials must check with the Cal- gary office who in turn plan inquiries at the Winnipeg re- gional office, thereby occupy- ing considerable man noun, be said. It is believed that the main problem resulting in the pay- ment delays occurs in Winni- peg, where claims are being processed manually end by computer. Mr. Bate says the problem is beginning to ease thu week. Some claims filed do not meet the basic requirements when first submitted. This happens because an employer may not have provided a complete rec- ord of an employee's contribu- tions on the separation ilip, or the claimant did not properly fill out the application for claim. Mr. Bate asks (hose experi- encing payment delays to give the UIC an opportunity to rem- edy the situation during the new HI Act transition pelted. Tourism grants to be increased FORT MACLEOD Bob DowHng, Alberta minster with- out portfolio responsible for tourism said Wednesday there are "strong indications" that the provincial government will increase grants this year to southern Afcerta. In a speech to the chamber of commerce and io talks after- wards, the minister emphasized the importance of Fort Macleod and Lethbridge in plans for Che 1973 and 1974 celebrations of the RCMP centennial. Travel and Convention Asso- ciatlon of Southern Alberta president John Neal tald today rord Is expected from Edmon- on by mid February on the ate of applications by tourist associations m this zone for [rants. While the minister could not be specific because the govern- ment is currently in the pro- cess of drawing up a new bud- get, Mr. Dowling did give a "strong indication" that grants will be Increased to this area in 1972, said Mr. Neal. The southern Alberta associa- tion has asked for a grant from UK goveronKnt, substantially up from the received in 1971. In addition, organizers of tobe Sight, Sound and Fury historic pageant planned for August in Lethbridge have asked for more than said Mr. Neal. Mr. Dowling said Fort Mac- leod and Lethbridge win be "key centres" in centennial plans since the RCMP were formed to fight the illegal whis- ky trade at Fort Whoop Up and established the fort at Fort Macleod. Warrack says Conservatives will win southern Alberta Allan Warrack, Progressive Conservative cabinet minister n the new Alberta government has predicted Tory wins in the Lethbridge seats now held by Social Credit candidates. "A lot of people vote for who 'ley think is going to win the said Mr. Warrack, minister of lands and forests in he Lougheed "At the neat provincial elec- on this has got to be one of K most attractive nominations wre could he sad. "We are going to win." Mr. Warrack said that when the two Snored candidates, John Anderson, LcUibridge East and Dick Gruenwald, Leth- bridge West were elected Aug. 30, people here thought the So- cial Credit government would be returned to power. At the next election, however, they will vote for the estab- lished Conservative govern- ment, he said. Tory candidates were run- ners up in both seats at the polls in 1971. They were: Rich- ard Barton, Lethbridge (Bast and Dick Gray, Lethbridge- West. Name battle will continue The battle for Whoop Up "On maps we want arrow! Yail and Macleod Trail will ontinue witti the Alberta high- ays department. Highways Minister Clarence .opithome has written Hie Tra- el and Convention Association Southern Alberta refusing to ficiaDy name the routes on ips and signs. Travel association manager Yank Smith, however, was urg- d by the TCASA board Wed- lesday to continue attempts to convince the highways minister the merit of the change. The local board points to the ficial renaming of the route hrough Edmonton as the Yel- whead and to the success of storic names for highways such ss the Oregon Trail in the United States. Whoop Up Trail, said Mr Smith is the section of Highway 4 from Coutts to Lethbridge The historic Macleod Trail is the highway from Calgary to Fort Macleod. pointing at Lethbridge as the Whoop Up Trail and at Fort Macleod as (be Macleod Trail. This opens up tremendous pos- sibilities for us to tell visitors about our said Mr. Smith. Mr, CopiUtome has written, however, to say that using his- toric names would be expen- sive and confusing. Steve Kotch suggested the only people who appear to be confused are government offi- cials in Edmonton.
