Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-21,Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, January 21, Gov’t will not fund joint school use The department of education does not provide additional financial support for joint-use community-school buildings — nor does it expect to in the near future. The trustees were under the impression that they would receive additional funding from the department for the proposed expansion of the Gilbert Paterson School because they entered an agreement with the city for community use of the school. It IS now obvious that when the department of education announced in November it would encourage school boards to enter into agreements for community use of new school buildings, the encouragement was not meant to be financial It is also evident now that when the department indicated it would provide ad* ditional funding to a maximum of $10,000 for community-core schools, it was referring to its new concept of school buildings - a very basic school building with relocatable classrooms. All was not bad news though when a public school com-ftiittee met with department of education officials in Edmonton. The department will stand behind its earlier announcement to increase support for new school construction from il6.25 to $17.50 per square foot. Financial support for an additional 100 square feet for the ijroposed expansion of the (Jilbert Paterson School may also be forthcoming, the committee was told during the EM-monton meeting Final decision on the additional financial support will not be made until the department approves the final plans and working drawings for the proposed expansion at the schools- . The proposed plans call for an addition of 19,570 square feet to the Gilbert Paterson School with 5,000 square feet of it to be financially supported by the City of Lethbridge Even if an additional 100 square feet is supported by the department of education. the public school board will still have to fund 1,700 square feet of the proposed addition or reduce the size of the addition. In its brief to the department Jan. 8, the public school board stated that it believed its attempts to create a school - community facility were being penalized. The brief showed that the school buildings board in Edmonton tentatively approved an addition of 13,195 square feet to the school in February, 1973. Then the school board reached an agreement with the city tor joint-use and by the end of 1973 the school buildings board reduced its support of the addition to the school to 12,231 square feet. The school board also ip-dicated in its brief that astronomical increases in building costs makes any further delay in the construction of the addition to the school “intolerable.” Renovations and expansion were first proposed for the Gilbert Paterson School almost nine years ago The school board meets Tuesday. Ag session deals with grain, stock Transportation, livestock and grains were priority items at the Western Agricultural Conference in Regina last week, according to Picture Butte farmer Herman Stroeve. Mr. Stroeve attended the conference as a delegatfrat- large for Unifarm, the ¿berta ■'■«kt"'“ "1— - therefore they wouldn’t be abandoned. Following this thinking, the conference also passed a resolution calling for the rationalization of the rail system in Western Canada based on an examination of transportation needs on a lonal basis. not in com- Puddle duddle members. Mr. Stroeve told Tiie Herald on his return Sunday that the Western Agricultural Conference wants the federal government to develop a Canadian transportation policy which will serve the needs of Western Canada, encourage industry in this region and make it economically possible to move products of all kinds to and from the Prairies to markets in Canada and overseas. The conference also suggested consideration be given to nationalization of railway roadbeds. This suggestion follows an argument of Orville Reber of Burdett, Alberta director to the Palliser Wheat Growers Association.

The connpacatlvely warm weather, which began with a Chinook six days ago, will last at least for another day or two, says the Kenyon Field weather office. While Arctic air covers the northern third of Alberta, temperatures in the Lethbridge region today and Tuesday will range from highs of 20 degrees to 25 degrees to lows overnight of from zero to -5 degrees. Mr. Stroeve said the conference suggested a study group be established to look at rail line rationalization with the provincial governments In Western Canada. Such a study would be done in co-operation with studies done or underway on up-gradii^ and abandonment of railways in the west. Mr. Stroeve said this would allow the members of the Western Agriculture Conference to have some input to the transportation problems to allow “the interests of agriculture to be assured a good system of tran- ' sportation.” The conference handled five resolutions dealing with health of Uvestocfcck. ■ Four resolutions called for compensation to producers when livestock has to be destroyed due to disease. One resolution called for compensation to be paid according to the true value of the animal, such as very expensive breei'irwS »’ilmals, not just the market value for slaughter animals. Another resolution called for the same exacting health standards now in effect for imported beef to apply to domestic production. The Western Agriculture Conference also took a dim view of the federal government action which put an embargo on beef and pork sales to the United States last August. If such action should be necessary in the future, it should be taken so as not to conflict with ri^lar movement of cattle. In reply to the growing use of meat substitutes, such as soybean • supplemented hamburgers, the conference called for manufacturers to clearly mark and advertise the product and to make sure the packaging indicates exactly what is inside. tn the grains section, the conference added its voice to a growing list of farm groups urging the federal government to buy 4,000 hopper cars for grain movement. Local volunteer agencies get help of 30 students Education is best buy theme of school week The volunteer force of the community social agencies in Lethbridge will be boosted by 30 student volunteers from the University of Lethbridge this month. The students will work as lay volunteers to obtain a first-hand knowledge of the working role of social agencies in the community. Their involvement in delivering social services to the community is part of a new psychology credit course that offers practical experience which can be applied to the student’s senior academic work in psychology. The community-based course of studies is a “means of getting the university involved with the community as well as giving the students a chance to offer their services and learn about an agency from within,” says professor Roger Barnsley who, along with professor Robert Arms, organized the program. Dr. Arms says the students are not being placed in the agencies as “minipsychologists,” butas volunteers seeking meaningful practical experience. He says wherever possible, the 30 students are being placed in agencies with which they are unfamiliar, so they will be able to experience new learn- Plastic pipe shortage will delay gas to some A shortage of plastic pipe will delay natural gas service to some rural Alberta residents at least until 1975 and perhaps longer, according to Alex Onody, a director for the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops. Attendmg a spècial meeting in Lethbridge Saturday as a forerunner to the group’s annual meeting in Edmonton Wednesday, Mr. Onody,' representing 12 co-ops south of a line from Claresholm to Medicine Hat, said the process of getting plastic pipe is a “lengthy busirtess” and he blames the government for some of the problems. He said the provincial government pushed too hard too soon to make natural gas available to all .Albertans. Because of the short supply of plastic pipe to carry natural gas to the farms, the price for the pipe has escalated. Mr. Onody said the federation is contemplating the use of aluminum pipe to replace the plastic pipe to ensure that the service will be available sooner He said this will be the major topic at the annual meeting. ing situations and broaden their awareness of society. Dr. Barnsley says both sides will benefit by the exchange. - The volunteer concept may be expanded to other psychology courses if this first program is successful. Workshop set for soccer, hiking buffs Two sports workshops — one for hikers and outdoors enthusiasts aftd one for those interested in coaching or officiating soccer — will be offered by the University of Lethbridge this year.
