LITHMID6I, ALIERTA SEE US FOR ALL OPTICAL NEEDS Lethbridge basks in tropical heat By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer I heard a couple of tourists in a strange-looking talk- ing this morning. The conversation went some- thing like this: "Holy under- wear, Batman, this place is "Right, Boy Wonder, my cape is frozen came the reply. Our visitors don't know how good they've got it in Leth- bridge. Why it was only 2C below overnight, and it's only going to be 30 to 40 below Southern Alberta residents are basking in a neat wave compared with what is going on in the northern section of the province. In Vermilion, the tempera- tures dropped to 57 below over- night while in Edmonton, it was 53 below. Grande Prairie recorded a temperature of 48 below. Calgary was caught ill the "warm" pocket it was only 29 below overnight. In other Alberta hotspots, Medicine Hat had an overnigly low of 32 below while Pincher Creek residents enjoyed shirt- sleeve weather it was 22 be- low overnight. In case you are interested, the overnight low in Honolulu was 63, that's above zero. The high pressure system that is causing this weather is centred over northern Alberta It is stationary. That means it is not moving. You can guess what that means. The weatherman says the present cold spell will last for at least two more days and, he added, "it could last a lot long- er."

City teachers have started 1973 contract negotiations Lethbridge teachers have al- ready begun preparations for negotiations on a new working agreement. An 11 member committee has been named to meet with the school boards as soon as both sides agree on an accept- able date to start negotiations. Bruce Steed of the Leth- bridge Collegiate Institute will act as chairman of the teach- ers' negotiating crmmittee. A new working agreement was signed in December after 18 months of negotiations. However, it expires at the end of this year and talks on a new contract are expected to begin about six months prior to the expiration of the present agreement.

(SHOES By MARLENE COOKSHAW Staff Writer The John Lee Hooker concert was great, but only if you are a very strong blues fan. Hooker and his five-man tack-up band had an extrcmc- y professional, polished qual- ty. Their boogies caused a lot of "good vibrations" in the crowd also a lot of clapping and even some dancing, which was more fun to watch the hand. Their blues had a heavy, throbbing quality, with no va- HUMIDIFIERS C A SHEET METAL LTD.' 1709 2nd Ave. S. 328.5973 CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental BLACK DENTAL Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

The songs obviously hac deep meaning for him and h was very involved with the music, but his words were muf fled and often completely drowned out by the band. Some songs with only his guitar accompaniment woulo possibly have given listeners a chance to further appreciate his talents. Bim, the newly-discovered IB year old from Dawson Creek, was a very fresh are enjoyable addition to the con cert. That he loved singing was obvious and his feeling was communicated easily to the crowd. The songs he chose, most of which he composed himself, covered a variety of from the tension in "Listen to the Wind" to the infectious style of "No Piano Blues" to SERVICE LID.

By RIC SWIHART Stiff Writer Lethbridge s h i p ping block in the 1970 71 crop year contributed bushels of wheat which could qualify lor the new two price system an- nounced last Saturday. Under the new system, all top quality wheat used by the milling industry Canada fir use by Canadians will bring per bushel, an increase of S1.04H per bushel. The total wheat crop in the 1969 70 crop year which would have qualified for the new price (No. 1 c.w. red spring wheat) was 180.9 million bus- hels. Of this total, 63.3 million was used for human consump- tion. Otto Lang, .minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, in making tie an- Grant sought for 57 teacher-aides The Lethbridge public school board has decided to apply for a grant from the federal gov- ernment to cover the cost of hiring 57 teacher aides. The application will be made ut.der the department of Man- power's Local Initiatives Pro- gram. The program is designed to create Jobs to lessen the un- employment burden in local communities. A total of million is available under the program. "It's a o n c e in a lifetime windfall, and we should try to take advantage of Dr. George Bevan, director of cur- riculum, told Tuesday night's school board meeting. The board felt thai by hiring teacher aides to do some of the more menial, time-consuming duties of a teacher, the teacher would be free to spend more time in actual instruction. "There is a strong possibility that these tasks would be per- formed more thoroughly and that the. quality of the educa- tional program would be in- creased. "Because of the pressure of time, many of the tasks simply rin tint: get said Dr. Ger- ry Probe, school district per- sonnel director. The application for the grant is to be submitted before the end of January. nouncement said the higher do- mestic price will be reached through a direct subsidy from the federal treasury and will not result in increased prices for flour and bread. He said the final plans for the system when It will into effect and how the subsidy will be distributed will be announced in about one Qionth. Bill Nicol, southern director to Unifarm, said from a direc- tors meeting in Edmonton this morning that farmers should realize that only a percentage of the wheat sold will qualify for the two price system. He said the price set by Mr. Lang followed the figure passed by a Unifarm resolution at the group's annual meeting in December. He said Hie new system is a real good idea and suggested Mr. Lang should be congratu- lated for his work since this is the second "go round" he has bad with the federal cabinet in getting it through. The farmers in the Leth- bridge shipping block will fare well with the new system if the method of payment follows that suggested by the Alberta Wheat Pool. The shipping block borders Glenwood to .the west, Seven Persons and Manyberries to the east, a line just north of Lethbridge and Taber south to the U.S. border. A. W. Beattie, public rela- tions manager for the Pool, said his company feels the pay- ment will be made through the Canadian wheat board on a pro rata basis recognizing that segment of the wheat growing community which produced the grain which qualifies for the new price. "We hope the formula for pay will be on the basis of the kind of grain used by the mill- ing industry in said Mr. Beattie. "The farmers who produce the best quality wheat should be given a proportional share of the new price. NAMED PRESIDENT Jim Spoulos of Gentlemen in Menswear Ltd.
