'dilly-dallies' over appointments By BEItNICH IIERLK Herald Staff Writer The provincial cabinet is dilly-dallying around .and mak- ing a series of promises it isn't living up to, says Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of Ihe Leth- bridge Community College Dr. Stewart said he was dis- turbed by the failure of the cabinet in making the neces- sary appointments to the boards of governors of the six collegcs. "If education is such an im- portant and topical matter you would think they could get the boards he said. The LCC board of governors has not existed since June 30. The terms of office o[ tires board members expired on this date, and the provincial cabinet has not yet made the appoint- ments which were to be effec- tive July 1. This leaves it with- out a quorum. Minister of Advanced Educa- tion Jim Foster was to have made the decision on the ap- pointment of new members, but due to disagreement about some of the appointments, the decision was shifted to the next cabinet meeting July 4. No announcement was made on July 4. A spokesman for Mr. Foster told The Herald this morning that the appointments will be released next Tuesday. "They keep saying next Tues- day and next said Dr. Stewart. He said the government keeps making one promise af- ter another "there is nothing we csn do about the matter, ex- cept keep getting alter the min- ister." The Alberta colleges commis- sion is also concerned at the provincial cabinet's delay in making the necessary appoint- ments. Dr. Henry Kolesar, commission chairman, said the commission had fulfilled its re- sponsibility by requesting nom- inations and sending the infor- mation to Mr. Foster. lime for careful consideration of these persons whose names were Dr. Kolesar said. There are n vacancies, in- cluding faculty and student representatives at each col- lege. Dr. Kolesar said also in- cluded in the new appoint- ments will be chairmen of the boards at LCC, Medicine Hat College and Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton. The LCC positions of board chairman Jerome Robbins, faculty representative Ben Brooks and student representa- tive Jean Boon expired June 30.

A total of 46 per cent of all vehicles tested showed and ex- cessive carbon monoxide read- ing which is generally cured by a simple carburetor adjust- ment.

About persons crowed into the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion to listen to the six-man musical group. Most listeners ring for dancing on the outer edges, and still people scattered throughout the bleachers. The crowd loved them. Thun- dering applause and cheers throughout the building greeted Crowbar at its entrance, and at the end of the performance, listeners screamed for an en- core. Crowbar's best performance Federal low-income aids 'not doing job' By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Federal schemes to provide for the needs of low income earners aren't doing their job, says a former federal superin- lerdenL of insurance. K. E. MacGregor, w h o re- tired from the post in 1964 and is currently president of the Waterloo, Ont. based Mutual Life of Canada, said schemes such as the Canada Pension Plan, old age security and oth- ers were "intended to solve the problem, but haven't." All they have done is pro- view in Lethbridge Wednesday.

In fact, Mr. MacGregor said, programs already in effect and talk about GIA provides a boom for insurance companies. "It generates more interest for people to provide for their own needs because the past has shown people "the in- adequacies of their personal situations." While long-established Insur- ance companies are benefiting from talks about GIA, newly- estabb'shed companies may not benefit. Referring to a rash of new insurance and mutual compa- nies that have been formed in Alberta and British Columbia in the past decade, he said: "I'd be surprised if all or them and fog put-on. Crowbar, a Canadian group, is very patriotic, and short breaks between songs were al- most "dedicated" to short com- ments on Canada and Canadian Friendship centre beginning the second phase of the test project. To date, 59.4 per cent of Work will start on the new extension to the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion immediately after the 1972 Whoop-Up Days celebrations. The square foot addition remains nameless. The board of directors for the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association, controllers of the exhibition grounds, have not discussed names. The "Chinook Pavilion" tag was used by the architect for professional puiposes on the artist's concept appeared in The Herald Monday. Whether the new addition will become part and parcel of the existing Lethbridge Exhibi' lion Pavilion or will bear it's own name, or whether the Iota complex will gain a new title is yet undecided.

He said Crowbar can get paid more to play in Lethbridge than it can to play in Pittsburg. Their newest song Hey Baby, an "oldie goldie" came alive once again in Crowbar's rock'n roll harmonized style.

Mr. Hoffman said he did not make that statement. What he said was that the origins o[ the Socred and NDP movements wer eroofed in similar c o n-Ccrns for the common man. Because of the personal at-traction of the politicians and supporters in each political parly, it is sometimes anything but an easy thing to switch from one parly lo another, lie said, regardless o[ a similarity in philosophy. Pointing to a story under the headline: Alta. NDP won't kick ouf Waffle, Mr. Hoffman said "while the press lias a duty to criticize politicians when it sees fit, politicians and the public also have an obligation to point out mistakes mado by the press."
