Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta EXPLORE CANADA Call us regarding the many available including and Western Canada. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Ctntrt Village Mall 3213201 The Lcthbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, June 6, 1973 PAGES 17 TO 30 LETHBMOGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lewer level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta (403) 328-7411 CURRENT STORE HOURS: la Men., Tues., Wed. and Frl. Thuri. to Closed Saturdays No smoking pact has lasting result Most of the students that agreed to break the 28 school day quit- smoking agreement at Hamilton Ju- nior High School a month ago are still honoring tho agreement. The quit smoking on- school grounds agreement made between and students of the school March 20 was broken by the stu- dents May 7 because they felt some students were not honoring it 100 per cent. But the school's vice-prin- cipal said Monday he hasn't had to send any students home for smoking on the grounds since the pact was discontinued." A school regulation calls for the expulsion of any stu- dent caught smoking on the school grounds. Nanham Stanford says more students were bringing cigarettes to the school prior to the agreement than they have since it concluded. The long-term effect of the program is already begin- ning to show results with students -showing pride for their appearance of their school by not hanging around the school or the school grounds in groups smoking, he claimed. Mr. Stanford says the stu- dents may have more re- spect for the staff because "for once Uiey have had to admit the staff showed more guts" than the students by holding to their part of the agreement while some stu- dents broke the pact. Staff who quit smoking during the pact are now back to their old nicotine habit. The quit smoking pact also had an impact on school board regulations. As a result of the Hamil- ton agreement, public school trustees have been asked to reconsider a 1969 policy that stated students in elemen- tary- and junior high schools could not smoke at school under any condition. Puni'h- ment was specified- by the board. The policy revision calls for student smoking to be regulated by the principal of the school. Construction strike begins its third day By RIC SW1HART Herald StaK Writer A strike for better wages by 30 members of Local 1111 cf the Construction and Gen- eral Workers Union entered its third day at noon. The laborers, working on five construction sites in Lethbridge and Raymond, are employed by Gillett Con- struction, Kenwood Engineer- Parents' opinions released Basic education wanted By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer A special report on educa- tion goals received almost as lackluster a response at its first public presentation Tuesday as it has from the Lethbridge public during the past 18 months. Of 26 persons attending the meeting to unveil the report, less than half were members of non-education groups. The 171 page report itself reflects a similar apathy by city residents. Of questionnaires mailed to lo- cal residents, only per- sons responded. Still, that number of re- plies has been boiled down to basic concerns about Leth- bridge do not feel welcome in city schools; parents want a re- turn to basic methods of learning; little emphasis is desired on the arts, music or drama. Education goals committee chairman Dr. George Bevan said the report will be pre- sented to public trustees de- spite a complete lack of rec- ommendations in the survey.

Foreign languages, art, mu- sic and drama are at the bot- tom of the public priority list. An identical situation is shown at the elementary school level. Reading, Eng- ilsh, math, health and phys- ical education top the list of public priorities. Music, French, drama and other foreign languages are of little concern to the pub- lic at the elementary level. Dr. Bevan and his commit- tee said in their summation: "Support for the fine arts is relatively low. Each of these would appear to be still a frill in the mind of the school system constituency. "Public awareness and public education are called for if the future needs of so- ciety are to be taken se- riously. "In many parts of the world, the fine arts in all its diverse forms is already es- tablished in the central core of the schools as an invest- ment in the future leisured the report states. Further, the survey shows parents are more interested in education as a means of employment for their chil- dren than are teachers.

The report con- tinues: "Educators appeared to be significantly less employ- ment oriented than the other groups of respondents. This tended to be consistent with educators' stronger support for intellectual development." Whatever happens to the city report now is entirely up to public school trustees. The report, and survey re- sults, are available at per copy from the public school board offices.

Temperatures today are expected in the 75 to 80 degree range, continuing possiblities for outdoor summer work from mechanics to gardening. ing and Wesbridge Construc- tion. The men are seeking wage parity with the rest of South- ern Alberta, including Cal- gary. The rest of the prov- ince north of Calgary is working on a contract award five cents higher than that for Southern Alberta. The laborers are seeking a wage increase to per hour by the end of the contract period in 1974. The construction firms have decided to make a stand at the conciliation board recommendation of 85 cents an hour increase for the contract which they accepted. The laborers for the three firms being struck rejected the offer. Joe Gillett, of Gillett Con- struction, told The Herald Tuesday no talks were under- way between the union and the construction firms. This was confirmed by John Frame, field representative for Local 1111, late Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Gillett said the labor- ers also want the firms to pay 10 cents per hour to- ward a pension plan in addi- tion to the 10 cents per hour per person already contri- buted to the provincial health and welfare program. They also want the firms to increase to 10 per cent from seven per cent their holiday pay. According to Mr. Gillett the high wage demands by the union is hindering the employment of students for summer work. Under the contract sought by the union, construction firms would have to pay a inexperienced student right out of school per hour. "It would be cheaper to put a carpenter to work on the laborer's work because at least he is skilled." said Mr. Gillett. Of the five jobs affected by the strike, only the Can- ada Safeway Ltd. store on 3rd Avenue South is new con- struction. The rest are addi- tions to existing buildings Sick's Lethbridge Brewery, Lilydale Poultry Sales, Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans Association and the Raymond Junior and Senior High School. Joe Kenwood, of Kenwood Engineering, said the strike can only shut down the con- struction jobs at all sites. He claimed the union can legal- ly only strike the plant addi- tions and not the entire busi- ness. Mr. Frame said the busi- nesses would be affected only if the unions of the busi- nesses' employees chose to go out on sympathy strike. Albert Pelletier, plant su- perintendent for Lilydale, said although the employees of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters Union working at the poultry processing plant are working without a contract, he hoped they wouldn't sup- port the labor union strike. Daughter aivarded A 17 year old Picture Butte girl whose mother was killed three years ago in a motor vehicle accident near Vauxhall received in damages Tuesday in Alberta Supreme Court in Leth- bridge.

However, he rejected claims from the deceased's second husband, Norman Mi- ckelberry, and from two oth- er children by her first mar- riage, Rudolph and Shirley Zalesak.
