By JOE MA Herald Staff Writer The Railway Transport Committee the Cana- dian Transport Commission has ruled that CN Rail and CP Rail are to continue operating all passenger services between Montreal and the Maritimes. Combined losses for both railways for their pas- senger services lo the Maritimes amounted to in bulk of the losses incurred by CN Rail, totalling Because the services "are uneconomic and are likely to continue to be both railways are now eligible for government subsidies of up to 80 per cent of the annual losses on the runs. The com- mittee said it was "satisfied that there is a con- tinuing need for a service between the Maritimes and Montreal." This does not sound like the same committee which gave permission to CP Rail to discontinue its Medicine Hat Lethbridge Calgary passenger ser- vices effective July 3 last year, does it? The committee ruling on the discontinued pas- senger services in southern Alberta also said that these services "are uneconomic and are likely lo con- tinue to be The only difference was that the committee fell alternate modes of public transportation were available in southern Alberta, but not in the Maritimes. How much did CP Rail lose annually for its pas- senger services in southern Alberta? The figure should be interesting for comparison: in 1969, or one forty-third of the losses in the Maritimes! I am not making suggestion that there is discrimi- nation against southern Alberta, but Ottawa certainly needs some explanation to do. And it better be good. Both Clarence Copithorne, the provincial minis- ter of highways and transport, and his predecessor Gordon Taylor have accused the federal government of "favoritism treatment" toward the Maritimes. It should be recalled that in Alberta, the Trans- Canada Highway was only partly financed by the federal government, -which financed certain roads in the Maritimes in their entirety. There is, of course, another important difference between southern Alberta and the Maritimes in this case: in the Maritimes it is CN, a Crown corporation, that is losing money. Or maybe our elected representatives are not fighting hard enough for the interests of their elec- torate. If Ottawa could maVe the railways to continue their passenger services in the Maritimes on the one hand, and give permission to discontinue passenger services in southern Alberta on the other, despite the fact that the Maritime losses are 43 times as much as those in southern Alberta, then the outlook for railway freight traffic here is not very good: CP Rail plans to abandon 375.4 miles of branch lines in southern Alberta in and after 1975. in damages No Injuries and about damage resulted when a car driven by Larry Wintemute, 21, CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Machanic BLACK DENTAL LAE Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

Chinook Stationers Have Moved to a New Location 319 7th STREET SOUTH PHONE 327-4591 Separate school boss here soon By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer The new superintendent of (he Lethbridge separate school system says he plans to visit England to take a close look at their education system be- fore he takes up his duties in Lelhbridge. Ralph Himsl, who will as- sume the post Jan. 1, 1973, told Tim Herald in a telephone in- terview from Prince Albert, Sask., that England is where "its happening" in education. "I've talked with a number of people in the States and they have told me, 'don't come here, England is where the action said Mr. Himsl. He said he plans to look at English innovative programs in school administration, non- graded schools, the DSC of cre- ative problem solving, kinder- gartens and nursery schools. Mr. Himsl said he will be in Lethbridge July 21 and 22 on a house-hunling expedition and hopes to meet with separate school officials during the weekend to discuss the needs and objectives of the separate school system in Lethbridge. A former school superinten- dent in Prince Albert and Moose Jaw, Mr. Himsl has been employed on the Sas- katchewan Newstart Project for the past years. New- slart is a provincial govern- ment adult education progrdm. Mr. Himsl said while he re- gards (he pre-school years as a critical period in a person'3 lite, it's too early to say wheth- er he will press for establish- ment of kindergartens or other facilities for early childhood education in the separata school system. "Whatever happens to four or five-year-olds is very influen- tial on their life. This is where the personal responses lo life's problems are he said. "However, I don't know the capabilities on the district and what their desires are so it would be premature to say I will try lo bring about early childhood Hucation." Mr. Himsl said the non-grad- ing scheme is one of the things he believes in most strongly. "I don't believe learning can be assigned to a certain year in a person's school hs said. Mr. Himsl takes over the post which will be vacated by Bob Kimmitt when he retires at Ihe end of December.
