Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE IETHERIDGE HERO.ID Wcdndidny, July 26, 197J Bread prices are definitely up By MAIU.ENE tOOKSIIAW Herald Stulf Wrilcr Because of the two-cent In- crease in bakery bread, ollri- !mled to increased production costs, many local retail grocers have raised Ihe price of bread lo 31 cents from 28 cents a loaf. The wholesalers would re- ceive the two cents indicated, with the extra cent going to Ihe retail grocer. Of the stores contacted, 'Jiose who quoted Ihe Iliree-cent price increase included Elta's Gro- cery and Confectionery, Gor- die's Grocery and Confection- ery, Krol's Grocery, Currie's Foods Ltd.. and Kobal's Gro- cery. Several of the chain stores which purchase their bread from wholesale bakeries de- clined comment on any increase until receiving "contact from head office." Safeway and L-Mart have up- ped the bakery bread price two cents, making present prices 30 cents a loaf at Safe- way and 28 cents a loaf at L-Mart. There have been no increases made in the prices of either store's brand name bread. Both types sell at four loaves for 89 cents. Value Village Markets Ltd. has also followed the whole- sale bakeries two cent in- crease. Their bread is selling at 30 cents a loaf, with Value Village Bakery's own bread re- maining at 28 cents. Manager Gay Westwood said he did not feel his production costs had risen, and he plan- ned to continue selling the bread STRETCH STITCHES GET THE FACTS pirr. creoltd Stllchm.

Manager Emil Sherman said Sven Ericksen's Drive-In Pas- try Shop, although currently selling its bread at 27 cents a loaf, would also experience an increase soon. He said he expected a new price of 23 cents a loaf, and attributde the new price to an expected increase in em- ployees' wages. "When McGav- In's bakers' wages are raised, they will probably go up here as well." The manager of Laheview Bakery Ltd. was not available for comment, but previous in- dications were that its price would make the same two- cent increase. Children's theatre tonight The first of two perfromances of an evening of Theatre for Children will be presented to- night at p.m. in the Bow- man Arts Centre. The Shoestring Players of the Lethbridge Youth Theatre and the Sunshine Players, an Oppor- tunities for Youth group, will present three short plays.

The last class of third and final year students will be held in the 1972-73 academic year. Sister Clarissa said under al] proposals the school premises will be within the structure of the hospital. LOST (BUT LUCKY) DOG-Susan Dunham of the Hen- derson Lake Day Camp poses with Bozo for a picture. The organizers of the camp found the Irish Setter running around the lake area one morning, and gave him the name. The young people have asked assistance from Ihe people of Lethbridge in locating the dog's home. All that is known about the animal is that he came from Calgary. -Bill Groenen Photo LCC board of governors still isn't. Another Tuesday has come and gone and there's still no word on who will be appointed to fill the four vacancies on the Lethbridge Community College Board of Governors. Nor is there a board chair- man or legal board. The provincial cabinet was to have made the appointments during its weekly cabinet meet- icg yesterday, but apparently some matters have still not been settled. There are reports that one of Ihe major reasons for the de- lay is the Eed Deer College sit- uation. That board resigned fol- lowing a government investiga- tion and report on unrest on the Red Deer campus. The cab- inet is reportedly divided on whether or not to appoint a new board at the present time. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said the college is be- ginning to feel the effects of the delay. "I would sure like to have a board meeting and discuss a few he said. "There are several matters that should be dealt with which I don't have the authority to do on my own." A spokesman for Jim Foster, minister of advanced education, declined this morning to pre- Worth team seeks student reactions Students in Lethbridge rail have the opportunity to react to the Worth Commission He- port on Educational Planning during the next week.

Sue Mclnally and Shauna Frizzell, both university stud- ents, say they also plan to visit Medicine Hat during their Leth- jridge stay and are hoping to :ind time to get some rural student reaction as well. However, most of the survey will concentrate on the larger centres because of Lhc time 'actor. After the province-wide sur- vey is completed, a conference will be held in Banff in mid- September to discuss and anal- yze student reaction before sub- mitting a report to the provin- cial cabinet. The survey is financed under the Student Temporary Em- ployment Program at a cost of Himsl appointment confirmed The appointment of Ralph Himsl as the new superinten- dent of Lethbridge separate schools was formally approved during a separate school board meeting Wednesday. The appointment was final- ized af'-er the board received official approval of the appoint- ment from the provincial gov- ernment. Mr. Himsl takes over from Bob Kimmitt at the end of this year. The board approved a pro- gress payment of for work on the St. Mary's Ele- mentary School. Total cost of the addition and alterations is diet when the matter might be finalized.

Next Tuesday perhaps? U of L plans workshop for teachers of Indians Education 4190, a special workshop for teachers of In- dian students will be held at the University of Lelhbridge August 14 to 25. The sessions, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. daily, will be conducted by Morgan Otis, director of native Amer- ican studies at Sacramento State College In California. Mr. Otis is currently com- pleting the requirements for his doctoral degree at Ihe Uni- versity of California. He has taught at the secondary level V of L construction at end The first phase of develop- ment of the University of Leth- bridge campus is virtually fin- ished, with the completion of the physical education building. The physical education and art departments were able to move into their new quarters on schedule. The service complex compos- ed of the relocatable buildings which were on the old campus, will be fully operational later in August. Excavation under way be- tween the physical education building and the academic and residence building is for a con- necting tunnel. This will allow persons to en- ter the west side of the physi- cal education building, pass through a corridor and tunnel, enter the permanent walk, and proceed to the academic and residence building. A new parking lol at the north end of the main building, scheduled for completion Sep- tember 1, will eventually ac- commodate more than 200 cars. Work at the north end also includes construction of a bus and traffic loop to Level 6. in California for a number of years and has experience as a field supervisor for student teachers. Mr. Otis has conducted a number of workshops in Native American Studies throughout the United States. Interested persons can con- tact the U of L registrar at 329-2311. Lab, laundry centralization up in air It is not yet known how many hospitals in southern Alberta will participate in the central- ization program of laboratory and laundry facilities, Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital as- sistant administrator Doug Schindeler says. About 17 hospitals have been invited lo jointly share the lab- oratory facilities to be based at the LMH and St. Michael's Gen- eral Hospital, and laundry facil- ities to be based at the LMH. However, the decision to join in the project is up to each of the hospitals, Mr. Schindeler said. "Replies are now coming he said. "It will probably be some time this fall before we know how many hospitals will take part in this project. At this moment nothing is final izcd." Hospitals invited to jointly share the facilities are within two hours' driving time from Lethbridge. A fully-automatic laundry system has been tentatively selected by the LMH admini- stration. It requires only one or two persons to operate and all other laundry slaff at partici- pating hospitals will eventually be phased out. Little reaction to Herald survey By JOE MA Herald Staff Writer I have heard two explana- tions for the fact that only four letters were received in re- sponse to ray article on the United Appeal in this news- paper April 13. One was that people don't care about the United Appeal. The second explanation that people agree with what I point- ed out, If people cared or if my arlicle were controversial, then I would have received more comments. Since my article there have been several d e v elopmeuts with the Community Chest: A new executive director, Allan Purvis, has been appoint- ed. He will succeed Jim Smith after working with him in the next campaign. The next cam- paign will benefit from the presence of one more full-time fund raiding professional. The new board has decid- ed not to publish the objective to avoid public disappointment should the campaign fail to reach its objective. It Is also mapping out new strategy to make Ihe campaign more ex- citing. The next campaign will crucial due to the fact some agencies will decide wheUwr they will withdraw from thn Community Chest depending on its success or failure. The new board has discov- ered something wrong with allocation of funds to the IS member agencies. Example: whereas other agencies wera desperately struggling for sur- vival, one agency received more money that it could use, and consequently it was spent on interior decoration, which was not budgeted. A comparison with the distribution to funds in Edmon- ton, Calvary and Medicine Hat shows that some agencies are receiving more on a pro rata basis in these cities, and some arc receiving more in Leth- bridge. Letters reply The four letters received were from the Canadian Men- tal Health Association, the YWCA, and two residents of the city. The CMHA said it has received permission from its national offices tq withdraw from the Lethbridge United Appeal if it wishes. The CMHA letter also suggested that: Agencies that receive gov- ernment support should re- quest an annual increase from the government as well as in increase from the United Ap- peal. Those that receive fees for services should increase fees before requesting an in- crease in United Appeal funds. If the United Appeal does not attain its objective, addi- tional fund raising projects should he performed through- out the year until the objective is reached. The United Appeal and its member agencies should hava a continuing, year round pub- licity campaign. The CMHA pointed out that all agencies grow and require more money "if they didn't experience growth they would be out of business." Division poor The YWCA letter, from its national executive Donna McRae, said "I thoroughly dis- like dividing voluntary agen- cies into two vention and treatment go hand in hand." 'I do not believe the United Appeal should support agencies which do not take seriously their stewardship of citizens' Miss McRae said. The YWCA national execu- tive agreed that there should be "a shorter, more dramatic campaign period" and conclud- ed, "Find me a better way than the United Appeal and I'll support it." A letter from Anne Price, of 1912 6th Ave. A N., said "I feel that we have reached a stage in our society where the Unit- ed Appeal and various other fund drives are completely passe. "Anything that has to do with the health and welfare of the people should be sponsor- ed by the government and paid for by direct taxation of the people, as this is the only way of sharing the burden Mrs. Price said. "I would not for one moment deny the wonderful work of the Salvation Army, but it Is a church and there are many other churches who do just as wonderful work among their own congregations without ap- pealing to the United. Appeal for help." Mrs. Price said she could not understand why the Navy League asks help "when the Air Cadets and Army Cadets do Many appeals The last letter, from Mrs. Horst Schamp of 525 19th St. N. said she was told that "one- third of all incoming money by the United Appeal Is spent for administration" and "that's de- cidedly too much." (Editors note: less than 20 per cent is spent on adminis- Mrs. Schamp said the United Appeal has "a very untimely as there are other drives to. "All those drives are worthwhile, but which has the she asked. Mrs. Schamp said there are so many other campaigns and canvassers that she found It "a nuisance from beginning to end" and sometimes she did not know that they are for. So much for the letters. It would be foolish at this point to speculate whether the next campaign will be succes- ful. But to make it successful, a lot of changes are necessary. One final word is that the United Appeal is a people's campaign and as such all in- formation about the campaign should be public information. The line of communication! should be kept open. RIST Approval was also given lo an expenditure of for work on the exterior of fit. n.T-sil's School.
