Dispute At Fort Macleod 24 Workers Fired At Trailer Plant By JIM WILSON Staff Writer FORT MACLEOD (Special) _ Twenty four employees of the Northwest Design and Fab- rication Limited mobile home plant were fired this morning for what the company terms an "unlawful work stoppage" July Spokesmen for the workers said they walked off the job about a.m. after the company refused to pay thsm time and one-half for working the Dominion Day holiday. The spokesmen said they based their demand on a Cana- dian Press article in The Her- ald Tuesday, which says that under the federal government Employment Standards Act, everyone required to work on a statutory holiday must be paid the premium salary. Contacted for comntent, Northwest's assistant manager Henry Harks refused to make any comment, saying it was Former Resident Dies In U.S. Mrs. William Bayard Long, daughter of Charles McKillop, the first minister in Lethbridge in 1886, died recently in Ox- nard, California at the Guardian Convalescent Hospi- tal. Mrs. Long was the youngest daughter of Hev. McKillop, and is survived by her brother, George McKillop, of Leth- bridge. She left Lethbridge many years ago to train as a nurse at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City, and after receiving her RN degree, married Dr. Long. They lived in New York until Dr. Long's death, when Mrs. Long moved to California. French Tourists Dig Cowboy Duds We may not think Cana- dians have any special means of identity but the French tourists currently visiting this area believe otherwise- The first tiling they do when they arrive in Leth- bridge is to outfit themselves in fringed jackets, levis, Stet- sons and cowboy boots. Thus attired, they are ready to as- similate with the natives. One French cowboy, with an outfit so complete it even included a holster and child's gun, plus spurs worn upside down, indicated to a western wear store manager that such garb was a state sym- bol in France. Authentic boots and Stetsons were proof of a Canadian visit and much admired back home. Through an interpreter Pi- erre, a salesman from Nice said that Canadian costume is, 'to European people, true western dress, and this is in spite of Roy Rogers, regard- ed as more of a Canadian tradition than an American one. "Make sure the stores carry a good supply of west- ern the interpreter advised. "French-people real- ly go for the stuff." This is logical. Who comes back from Hawaii without a lei? Or Florida without a tan? Who'd go back to France without a horse? Well anyway, cowboy boots. Sunny Days Ahead Souhem Albertans can look forward to more summer-like weather Thursday and Friday, after rain showers from June 27 to June 30 dumped a total of .79. of an inch of rain on Lethbridge.

The workers' spokesmen said they were well on the way to- wards establishing a union at the Fort Macleod plant, and had elected an executive. "Our president was fired the day after we elected one spokesman said. "The com- pany doesn't want a union here under any circumstances." He added a meeting had been scheduled July 1 at 3 p.m. between the employees' group and company officials, but the company had called it off and set a new meeting time of 1 p.m. today. The company denies any knowledge of either meeting, and Mr. Harks said it had no in- tention of meeting with the em- ployees. Northwest employed about 75 men and women, and most are reported to be upset at the wholesale dismissal this morn- ing. Most Fort Macleod district trailer manufacturers are unionized, and the workers' spokesmen told The Herald they believed they were also entitled to union membership, which would be with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners. UBCJ agent Ron Dancer, of Calgary, was to arrive in Fort Macleod this afternoon for the 1 p.m. meeting, so was un- available for comment. S. N.

EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR SHOE REPAIR MIKE HANZEL 317-7lh STREET SOUTH its rights to require the men to work July 1 at normal pay, so long as it gave them another day off. He said the Alberta regula- tions would apply instead of the federal government legisla- tion, which would only affect federal employees. The Alberta order requires an additional day's pay fsr working any statutory holiday, or else a day off with pay at a later time. The order is not for payment of double time, but for a day off or the equivalent in extra salary. Summer School Under Way The first semester of the University of Lethbridge sum- mer school started this mor- ning, with 680 students reg- more than last summer, an increase of about 24 per cent. About 120 of the students are new to the U of L this year, and it is possible that the much-increased summer school enrolment is due to the scarc- ity of summer jobs. The semester ends July 22, and the second summer se- mester starts July 27, ending Aug. 14. U n i v e r sity fall semester classes start this year Sept. 10 after a two-day registration and orientation session. Ap- plications for the fall semester should be in by Aug. 4 for new students.
