Mon- day's eclipse was abour 60 per cent complete in ihe Lelh- bridge region, although in other parts of Canada it rang- ed from about 20 per cent to a total eclipse. Only one more total eclipse will be visible to Canadians, in 1979. After that, the next one won't be until the 21st Century. The eclipse whirled across the country at almost miles per hour, and was the subject of a considerable amount of research as scientists used it to study various phenomena including ihe Sun's corona the gases which stream millions of miles inla space from mammolh nu- clear explosions inside the slar.

REMNANTS OF THE PAST The house where we used to live, best describes this little old shack. Though it compares poorly with 1he type of houses people ore living in at the present time, it may hold many fond memories for Alberta pioneers.

Indians still taxable The wrangle to exempt In- dians from federal income tax is progressing slowly, Deane Gundlock (PC-Lethbridge) said in an interview. The MP, a member o[ a fed- eral committee on Indian af- fairs and norlhem development, said about 15 years ago the government began levying in- come tax on native people. "In early treaties (here was never ny mention of income said Mr. Gundlock who has been trying to get Indian people exempted or get the government to justify the tax. The Peigan people at Brocket, west, of Fort Maclcod, are among Indians who object slrongly to the tax, he said. Mr. Gundlock said officials n the department of Indian af- fairs have agreed to look into original treaties to determine whether there is tiny mention of income taxes. In the meantime, the govern- ment continues to tax native people. Separate schools to bargain locally By RON CALDWELL lierald Slaff Writer The Lethbridge s c p a r ale school board will follow the lead of the public board in re- turning to strictly local bar- gaining in upcoming teacher contract talks. John Boras, chairman of the separate school board, said to- day Uiat the directors of the Lethbridge-Medicine Hat School Authorities Association will rec- ommend to their member boards that they bargain out- side the association- The move was not unexpect- ed since the largest of the four boards, the Lethbridge public board, voted several weeks ago to bolt the association in favor returning to local bargain- ing. Mr. Boras said pressure from the teachers was a major con- sideration in the decision. "The boards have been re- quested by the teachers to bar- lain locally. After due consid- eration, we decided, okay, lets try it locally again." he said. However, this does not mean the two-city association is dead as far as future joint bargain- ing is concerned. All four boards will meet when the next contract with teachers expires to evaluate their position. The present contract expires Dec. 31. The next move would appear to he the joining of Hie Leth- bridge public and separate boards rather than leaving the public board to negoliale with public school teachers and Ihe separate board to negotiate with its teachers. "The possibility of joining the public board is wide said Mr. Boras. The two boards bar- gained together for many years in the past. "There is notlung lo prevent it, but it is up to the boards and the teachers. It might be o[ value or there might be some reasons why teachers or the boards may not want to, but it certainly will be Mr. Boras said. Mr. Boras said he doesn't feel the return to local bargaining will make "a bit of difference" in the success ot negotialdons- "If it allays some fears on the part of teachers, it will cer- tainly help. Coalhurst youth is still missing Here one minute, gone the next. At least so it seems after The Herald printed information about a iG-year-olfl youth miss- ing from Coalhurst. In reality, Ernest Kunze, son of Mr. and Mrs. Max Kunze hasn't been located yet by RCMP. The young man is believed by his mother to be heading for Vancouver to look for work. However, she says Ernest didn't take much money nor a sleeping bag with him in his quest to find work. RCMP say Ernest, by virtue of his age, is no longer a ju- venile.

If the youth Is located he will be asked to contact his parents or asked if police can inform them about his whereabouts. If he says no to either request, it's his decision. Similar instances occur across Canada every summer as young men, released from the classrooms, search for tem- porary employment.

If this takes that away, then it is worthwhile to Uiat degree." Mr. Boras said Ihe recom- mendation will have lo go be- fore a board meeting for ap- proval and then the next step will be for one side to approach Ihe other to start the contract talks. The move Is a victory for two freshman board members. Separate school trustee, E. S. Vasclcnak, when advised by The Herald of the decision, said he is happy with the move. "It's the best tiling that's hap- pened to renew the harmony that existed previously between teachers and he said. "A lot of the difficulties that we shouldn't have been having fit the bargaining table win be removed.1' Mr. Vaselenak has been advo- cating such a move for several montlis. Reg Turner, the public school truslee whc; started the ball rolling by recommending Ihe public board leave the associa- tion, said he was not surprised by the decision. "I expected the association would fall apart when we (the public board' he said. It was Mr. Turner's efforts that started the public board's mcve away from the associa- tion.
