Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - Wedneiday, January 20, 1971 Students plan protest Students at the University of Lethbridge are planning a mass meeting of students and faculty at noon Thursday to protest and discuss what they term "heavily overcrowded" classrooms. The meeting is a follow-up to a smaller meeting held Tuesday, when it was observed that many classes have 70 to 130 or more students, and a few were said to have enrolment totals higher than the number of desks in the classroom used. The students are suggesting a 10-student maximum in many senior classes and ceilings of 30 to 50 on most first-year classes. One student commented that the protest was being staged now so that full consideration could be given it before the new West Lethbridge campus opens this fall. NLBA meet on Feb. 1 The first 1971 general meeting of the North Lethbridge Businessmen's Association will be held Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. in the York Hotel. A membership drive will be started after the next executive meeting Jan. 25. Paul Anctil, public relations chairman for the association, said the executive has urged all businessmen in North Lethbridge to be present at the general meeting Feb. 1. "The strength of the association depends on the activity and numbers of the members," he said. The 1970 executive will remain in office until further notice. President of the association is Conrad Plettell; vice - president, Bob Deimuth; secretary, Tom MacFarlane; treasurer, Bemie Dupuis; and public relations, Paul Anctil. The 10 members of the board of directors will also remain in office. Swine show March 16-17 The first annual southern Alberta swine show and sale will be held March 16 and 17 in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion. The sale which is expected to draw commercial and purebred swine breeders from throughout the south, will replace the swine show traditionally held each summer during Whoop-Up Days. About 200 hogs are expected for the sale. The featured event of the sale will be a public auction March 17, at which time whole or half carcasses will be available. The show and sale is sponsored by the Southern Alberta Swine Producers and the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association. HEAD-ON TRAIN COLLISION-A 94-ear scheduled CP Rail freight train collided Tuesday morning wifh an eight-car empty extra freight, about four miles west of Crowsnest, on the Alberta-B.C. border. One man, J. P. Bohan, 44, of Cranbrook, B.C, was killed, and three others were injured end are in Natol, B.C. hospital. The impact of the collision threw the diesel engine from the eight-car unit on top of the lead engine of the other, derailing both- The accident happened on a curve in the track, where the track is about 300 feet above Carbon Creek. Driving rain hampered workmen on the scene throughout Tuesday. Tougher pollution control rules favored by Lethbridge officials Price goes up Straw shortage in south There is a straw shortage in southern Alberta. This is apparently one of the unexpected side effects of Operation Lift, and is one causing considerable concern among livestock men in the south ac-cordlng to department of agriculture officials in Lethbridge. Officials say that the opera- Folk festival Jan. 2 7 Eight young southern Alberta soloists and groups, most of them from high schools, will appear Jan. 27, at the Yates Memorial Centre in the second Winston Churchill High School Folk Festival. The festival, student - produced and sponsored by the WCHS students' council will be judged by Mike Sutherland, former member of the Point of Interest. WCHS held its first festival two years ago. Winners will be announced in group and individual categories. Solo competitors are: Gail Gillie of WCHS; Mick Muraki, Raymond High School; and Renee Wright of Erie Rivers High School in Milk River. Groups will include the 1969 winners, the We Two, whose members are Cathy Pisko and Wendy MacFarland. The WCHS duo will be the only non-competitors in the festival. Another WCHS group is Four of a Kind, comprising Karen Crane, Kathy Doe, Kathy Pon-ech and Donna Kitaguchi. Coalhurst High School will be represented by a fivesome, Ron Wyrostok, Rose marie Wyr-ostock, Patricia Lumley, Joanne Schuurman and Linda Takacs. Representing Kate Andrews High School in Coaldale will be a duo, Charolotte Wiebe and Elaine Unger. The Nirvana, featuring Mark Lowrie, Tom Boron, Candy Waters and Ron Birr, comprises both students and non-students. Tickets for the festival may be purchased at the WCHS office, from WCHS students or at the door of the Yates prior to the performance. tion, placing more land Into suminerfallow was one of the causes. Another reason is that many farmers did not want to go to the extra expense of balling forage if there was no immediate market. The straw is used mainly for bedding and the recent severe cold pieced heavy demand on existing stocks. It seems commercial feed-lots are feeling the shortage more than others, and some have turned to baled wood shavings as an alternative. Apparently the shavings, though comparable in price, do not get nearly as much ground coverage as straw. In the meantime, straw is a valuable commodity, selling at from $16 to $18 per ton or tbout six dollars higher than usual. The value of bedding to cattle on minimum feed rations is ev.:dent in tests performed by the Lethbridge Research Station. The tests indicate that if cattle have winter bedding, they gain just as efficiently on 25 per cent less feed. Independent Order of Foresters GENERAL MEETING ELECTION OF OFFICERS at PHIL'S PANCAKE HOUSE Thursday, Jan. 21st - 8:00 p.m. Planned provincial legislation that would toughen Alberta's pollution control laws has drawn generally favorable comment from three Lethbridge people concerned with pollution problems Alderman Rex Little, chairman of a joint city - industry committee that is preparing a brief to the provincial government on pollution control costs, said it sounds like basically "good legislation." Dr. Paul Lewis, until last week chairman of the board of directors of Pollution Control-Southern Alberta, said that while there was a need for broader provincial powers, the real problem was a lack of enforcement of existing regulations. The planned legislation, announced by Alberta Health Minister James Henderson, would enable the government to close industries polluting the environment. It would be an extension of powers now held by the gas and oil conservation board regarding oil operations to include all industries affecting air, water and, in some aspects, land. Dr. Lewis said the staff now employed by the province to check on pollution was "doing a fine job" but simply could not keep track of the entire situation. There was a definite need, he said, for more manpower to enforce the present laws. The provincial government's record in pollution control so far had been "a little spotty" he said. In some areas it had been good, but in others, such as the reclamation of mines, it was COIN-OP DRY CLEANING at a Real Saving! ib 37ic 8 lbs. and Over For only ......

He added that there was a real need for action on gravel pit and feedlots located adjacent to watercourses. The government must also be more willing to release information and take action in cases where data have been obtained but nothing has been done to rectify the situation, he said. Aid. Little said there were some areas where there was a need for greater control by the province of industries contributing to pollution. The planned legislation might, he said, provide some impetus to industries outside cities to relocate and centralize. If anti-pollution legislation is strictly enforced the costs to independent industries may well rise to the point where they would have to move to the city and have their effluent treated by the city's treatment facilities, he said. His main disappointment with provincial actions in the field of pollution control so far, he said, was that no method had been devised by the province for ensuring that costs were equitably distributed. He noted that some centres were hit harder than others when it came to paying for pollution control. Cadet news The Navy League Cadet Corps No. 50 will parade tonight on board ship at 10th Ave. and 17th St. S at 6:45. Divisions will be at 7 p.m. and liberty boats at 8:55. All cadets are reminded to encourage a friend to attend the Saturday morning parade for new entries at 10 o'clock. There are openings for 50 boys. Herb Hayward, an official of Canadian Sugar Factories in Lethbridge said the new legislation will likely have no effect on the company's operations. "We have been working with government all the time in an effort to reduce pollution." He said the legislation is probably designed mainly to give government more efficient control in the pollution situation. Young artists give recital this evening Seven Lethbridge and district young musicians, plus a guest trio, will appear tonight at the Yates Memorial Centre in a Young Artists' Recital, sponsored by the University of Lethbridge Concert Series.
