Ph. 326-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 Chamber motion backs bilingualism By RIC SW1HART Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce Wednesday unanimously endorsed the goal of bilingualism for all Canadians. In a resolution to the chamber council, Cliff Black said support should be given any reasonable measure to teach French in all English primary schools, and English in all French primary schools. The resolution was in response to rebuttals from several members of parliament at the recent Parliamentary Committee hearing on the Constitution in Lethbridge. A brief was presented at the meeting by chamber president M o r 1 e y Tanner. "The statements made by President Morley Tanner were taken to task by some as the stated policy of the Lethbridge chamber," said Mr. Black. "What Morley attempted to do was to bring to the attention of the parliamentary committee problem areas of governing our country, problems which should receive a detailed study on behalf of the committee. "He stated quite accurately some of the feelings of the peo pie in this area and partic ularly Western Canada when he said the creating of a second official language is going to do more harm than good to the unity of Canada." Mr. Black said the state ments by Mr. Tanner were well founded, but were not a statement of policy for the chamber. Mr. Tanner said it is his opinion that if English speaking children are taught French in primary school, they will have a basic grounding. If they want to use it, they will be able to develop a fluency, he said. Hugh Prowse, chamber council member, took exception to the methods politicians use in handling the English-French language problem since the passing of the Official Languages Act. "I have expressed some dissatisfaction with politicians who say you don't have to learn French," he said. "In response'to this statement, I told one MP at the hearing this logic would make me a second class citizen. He agreed." Mr. Prowse said there is a great responsibility for chambers of commerce and news agencies to spell out what will happen in Canada with the present arrangement with two official languages. "What we have forming is a new elite citizen - the person who is bilingual. He wiil be the first class citizen," he said. "The second class citizen will be the person who can speak and use either French or English and then there are those in Canada who speak another language altogether. "In three or four years, there won't even be a janitor in a federal school hired unless he is bilingual." Cleo Mowers, editor of The Lethbridge Herald, said he fully supported the resolution by Mr. Black. "We should teach French in elementary grades so our children won't be second-class ci tizens. "The question now is, will English be taught in French speaking schools. If not, the French students will also be' come second-class citizens." Two groups seek budget approval Budgets for the Lethbridge Family Service and the Golden Mile Drop-In Centre are to be presented for approval at a meeting Thursday of the city's CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LABI lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLD6. PHONE 327-2822 Colder weather coming Colder weather Is on the way. People who have enjoyed the past few days of fair weather are advised to head for warmer climes, as an Arctic ridge built in the Yukon has begun its trek south. The cold front is expected to arrive in southern Alberta by late tonight. The system will signal its arrival with snow flurries as the cold and warm air masses meet, and gusty northerly winds. Temperatures will plummet from the predicted high today of 30 above to around 10 below. Weather records from one year ago show conditions at that time were fairly moderate for the season, with a high on Jan. 21 of 43.4 above and a low of 19.8 above. The all time record temperatures for the 21 are 61.2 above set in 1942 and 40.6 below set in 1943. preventive social service advisory committee. The family service project is the biggest undertaking under the committee's jurisdiction The counselling and family service portion of their budget comes to $32,000 for the coming year, after an estimated revenue of $12,000 has been taken off. Costs for the homemaker service, which puts substitute mothers in homes where they are needed,, are estimated at $39,000. This figure is up $10,-000 from last year and does not include an estimated $7,500 in revenue. An $8,700 request from the Golden Mile Drop-In Centre was tabled at last week's meet ing of the committee. It is to be reconsidered after having been broken down into an item ized account. Projects approved by the committee must receive approval from city council and the provincial department of social development. The city pays 20 per cent of the cost the province the rest. 3-way mishap Cars driven by Douglas Edward Musil of Natal, B.C., Brian Wolstoncroft and Mary Ann Harms of the city collided in the intersection at 3rd Ave. and 17th St. S. at 12:50 p.m. Wednesday resulting in $775 damage.

A proposed amendment the city bylaws would allow the planning commission more con trol over the esthetics of fac tory pre-constructed houses be erected in Lethbridge. The proposed amendment would insure the modular houses would fit with the others surrounding it and would prevent construction several identical houses close proximity. A representative of Schwartz Agencies Ltd. appeared before the board to discuss the esth& tics of the modular homes constructed by the Kainai Industries Ltd. plant near Standoff If permission is granted erect the houses, they will be the first in the city to come from the company, co-owned by the Blood Indian Tribe. The representative said there are six basic floor plans, variations and two sizes which the houses may be con structed. All of the houses however, have three bedrooms Applications from Squire De velopments for the assembling of three modular houses north Lethbridge were also tabled. MAN-MADE CRATER-What looks like crater in the river valley is actually the foundation for a sludge digester. It is just one phase of the construction of the city's secondary sewage treatment plant. The round structure on the left is an existing digester, part of the present north-side plant facilities- Pilings in the middle of the picture are for the sludge digester building. The pipes in the foreground will be used to connect the digester and the digester building. It is planned to eventually have four of the digesters as part of the plant, but only two will be built ot present. The plant, costing $3-5 million, is scheduled for completion next fall.

I-------__------;_i 1 .i----... I . i. _ i I -i------- ------- Southern Alberta must start taking seriously the fact that in seeking many millions of annual tourist dollars, the region is in direct competition with "some of the most exotic places in the world." "And," added Frank Smith, director of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, "right now we're whispering in a market where everyone else is shouting." Mr. Smith was speaking to the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, whose boundaries are similar to those of the TCASA tourist zone. About 128,000 people live in the area. He said tourism was an "extremely lucrative" source of money for ORRPC communities, drawing in $12.7 million annually in taxes alone. He said it also generated many summer jobs for residents of the communities, paid high profits on various investments and generally made the communities benefitting "much wealthier." Mr. Smith urged the ORRPC members to encourage their local municipal councils to "consk'er tourism on the same level as development of new industry." TCASA will provide whatever advice and assistance is re- auested, he said, but unless the communities move quickly they will lose out. He added that the total Canadian share of the North American tourism market is only ahout three per cent annually of the entire amount. "And of tourists spending money in Alberta," he said, "About 80 per cent are Albert-ans." Mr. Smith said British Columbia has become a powerful tourist draw for people living on the United States west coast, "but only one in four of B.C.'s American tourists comes to visit Alberta." Warburton Playgoers president Jack Warburton was reelected president of Playgoers of Lethbridge at the group's annual meeting this week. Other members of the executive are: Cliff Black, vice-president; Linda Bayly, secretary; Charlie Scott, treasurer; Wayne Barry, publicity manager; Dick Metis, general director, and Jean Warburton, social convenor, Members-at-large are Chris Burgess, Claire Scott, Diane Pokarney and Joan Waterfield. Playgoers has an active membership of about 40 persons. The Lethbridge share alone in annual tourist tax revenues is about $4 million - "almost enough to pay for the secondary sewage treatment plant." TCASA has prepared posters and information kits being widely distributed in North America and is inserting 600,-C00 paid advertisements in news media describing southern Alberta's tourist attractions. The association is attempting to reach the goal of one million tourists entering southern Alberta this year, and an increase in tourist dollars spent. Tourist industry competition requires excellent tourist ac conimodations, and co-opera tive promotion, Mr. Smith sp.;d. To this end the Alberta Tourist Association, of which TCASA is a member, has presented a brief to the provincial government seeking development of an over-all tourism marketing plan. Atso sought is financial assistance in construction of tourist facilities. He said the southern communities must also .work together to press the government for modifications of some existing legislation, such as hunting licence fees and restrictions on construction of facilities in wilderness areas. At the same time, he cautioned, the wilderness areas must be protected as a tourism resource. Judge bearing down on break-ins and theft Judge Lloyd Hudson announced in Lethbridge magistrate's court he is going to increase his sentences on persons convicted of break - ins and theft. "I don't think, except under except i o n a 1 circumstances, there will be any mere suspended sentences for break-ins," he said. The a n n o u ncement was made after he sentenced William Mark Kahlo, 16, of no fixed address, to five months in jail for break - ins and theft committed in the city Jan. 5. Kahlo was sentenced to five months after pleading guilty to charges of break - in and theft at G and J Sugar Bowl in Shoppers' World, break - ins r.nd theft at 938 Mayor Ma-grath Drive and 418 25th St. S., and attempted break - in at 417 23rd St. S. The sentences are to he served at the same time. An extra 15 days was added to his five - month sentence for being in possession of a weapon (hunting knife) dangerous to the public'peace. A charge of theft of a television set and attempted break-in were withdrawn because Ihey were committed while Kahlo was a juvenile and there- fore could not properly be brought before the court. Court was told Kahlo was on probation at the time of the Jan. 5 offences and had not been responding. He had a lengthy record of offences as a juvenile which could not be read into the adult court record. Judge Hudson said Kahlo apparently had all the breaks and ditfn't take advantage of them. Kahlo blamed drugs for his problem, the judge said, but he had all kinds of people around with which to talk over his problems instead of getting in deeper. Kahlo blames drugs for his criminal offences, Judge Hudson said. Persons up for drug offences say it causes no harm. "1 wonder what excuse a person would use who comes up with drug and criminal offences at the same time." In passing sentence on Kahlo, Judge Hudson said: A person using narcotics, carrying a knife, breaking into residential and com mercial establishments is pretty dangerous." In another case, Leon James Lumley, 18, pleaded guilty to theft of gasoline valued at less than $50. Passing of sentence was suspended until Feb. 5 when Lumley is scheduled to appear in magistrate's court on other charges. The judge ordered a presentence report. Lumley was released on $2,000 property bail. Show Her . . , (Sweetheart, Mother or Someone Special) -How Much You Care This . . . Valentine's Day February 14th! FLOWER SHOP 322 6th St. S.
