Gerry Beck, a public account- ant from Edmonton, said in Lethbridge Thursday the spread of the French language across the country is un- r.ecessarily costly because of the introduction of all French colleges, TV stations and bi- lingual written material. "We're paying 'a high price for retaining Quebec in Confed- eration." Mr. Beck, who came to Can- ada 14 years ago from Ger- many, said the law will lose its precisen.oss when statues must be given the same sense in two languages. The D of C Party, admittedly a pressure group which seeks to return language rights to pre-Language Act unilingual- ism, wts founded about a vcar ago iji Edmonton. Mr. Beck Inquest Set An inquest into the June 14 death of a Buffalo Narrows. Saskatchewan man, Armand Albert Byhette, 28, is set for June 29 at 9 a.m. in the pro- vincial courthouse in Leth- bridge. Byhette apparently died after a fall from a second-storey level fire escape of the Dallas Hotel. The coroner is Dr. John E. Morgan of Lethbridge. said there were "more thi. 000 members." He said the people of Que- bec were satisfied, but the poll' tieians "had to find a scape- goat for their inefficiency. The federal government, the target, couldn't speak out because of its fear of losing the Quebec vote." The party seeks to have poli- tical power decentralized with more strength going to the provinces. He said there was no need to amend the British North Am- erica Act, but areas of respon- sibility should be clearly set out. He suggested Quebec is re- ceiving the highest transfer payments, but MPs, because of the party system, cannot vote along regional lines to alter the situation. Grape Pickers Walk Out Paid Off, Says Union Leader STANDOFF (Staff) After five years of strike action against California produce growers, the United Farm Workers are finally seeing re- sults, said Jessical Govea, a co-worker of the director of the union. She told the delegates to the Indian Association of Alberta 26th annual convention here that just three weeks ago, some of the workers in the union had signed a contract with one of the large growers and since then, 10 more growers had of- fered contracts calling for bet- Attendance Change Granted Two requests from parents with children slated to attend Gilbert Paterson Elementary and Junior High School but who wish to attend Hamilton Junior High School, were granted by the Lethbridge public school board Tuesday night. The area from 14th St. S. to 15th St. S., between 10th Ave. and 10th Ave. A, will be a 'free choice" area. There is room for students in either school, where distances are similar and there are few other Grade 7 students in the area involved. ter wages and working condi- tions. She said the movement start- ed in 1962, with credit unions, medical assistance aixl co-oper- ative gas stations set up. "In 1965, to fight the root of our problems, lack of security and posr working conditions and wages, we decided to with- hold labor, the only thing we had to fight sho said. "When we walked off the fields, we gained a new self- respect, which has been the reason for the length of the fight for better conditions. "Even when the growers went to our fellow countrymen to re- place us in an attempt to break the strike, we didn't crack." She said the education re- ceived by the Mexican-Ameri- can people is secondary to the education received by the chil- dren of American descent. "When we did manage to get some of our children educated, they took the position that it was no longer their fight. "One of the most beautiful sights in the five-year struggle was when college and uni- versity students threw their Students To Attend Seminar Four local students will at- tend the provincial govern- ment's annual drama seminar in Drumheller in August. Scheduled to attend are: Christine Puhl, Steve Meszaros aiJU Nick Previsich cf Leth- bridge aind Red Duda of Coal- dale. Participation by Mr. Duda is being sponsored by Coaldale Little Theatre. The Allied Arts Council has provided small grants to Mr. Meszaros and Mr. Previsich both students at Catholic Central High School. At least one Alberta artist is convinced there is a growth of cultural awareness in Canada. George Horvath, who came to Calgary from Hungary a little over 12 years ago, finds the artistic climate decidely improved over what it was when he first arrived. "A good artist doesn't neces- Sentence Suspended A 16-year-old Lethbridge youth received a two year sus- pended sentence when he pleaded guilty in magistrate's court in Lethbridge Thursday to break, enter and theft.

She said it is the momentum of the union now that is going to mean the difference between success and failure. Recreation Conference In October Robert Clark, provincial min- ister of youth, has called a con- ference on recreation at the MacDonald Hotel in Edmonton Oct. 16 and 17. The minister has asked local parks and recreation boards and commissions to select dele- gations and possibly hold a workshop to assist the delega- tions to appreciate recreational problems in their area. In this regard a public sem- inar will be held at the Leth- bridge Community College July 8 at p.m. for any persons involved in organized recreation in any way. Victor Jacobsen 50 Years Service CP Storekeeper Retires Cultural Awareness Growing, Says Artist people are genuinely interested in the art scene, and more and more are insisting on buying originals than reproductions of old masters." Mr. Horvath who was bom and educated in Hungary, re- ceived his early art instruction in the fine arts in his native country. He has won several awards since coming to Canada in- cluding the 1969 best figure painting prize in the art in- struction schools' international competition. "I guess you could say my style is Mr. Hor- vath said. "I like to paint mountains, still lifes, portraits, and rural landscapes. These seem to be a favorite, for people are continually asking for this type of work."

By MARGARET LUCKIIURST Herald Staff Writer "I always enjoyed my Victor Jacobsen, head store- keeper of Lethbridge CP Rail :erminal said recently, "but I think I'm going to enjoy being retired equally well." Mr. Jacobsen retired this week after 50 years with the company, having started in 1920 as an office boy in the right- of-way department, Winnipeg. "I was there for a while then I moved to the department of immigration and colonization, then to the development depart- Mr. Jacobsen said. "In 1932 I transferred to Calgary into the stores department where I remained for 18 years. In 1950 I came to Lethbridge as store-keeper where I have been since." Questioned on changing work patterns Mr. Jacobsen ob- served: "In my day, we worked up through the ranks according to our talents and abilities. How- ever this has changed. The days of an apprentice office boy ris- ing to become president are a thing of the past." Of rail travel Mr. Jacobsen said, "Things are moving so rapidly today it's hard to say what trends transportation will take in the future. Rail travel may once again come into its own, now that highways are getting cluttered and city traf- fic slow and annoying. People might once again find train travel convenient and relaxing, as it was a couple of decades Mr. Jacobsen can't remem- ber ever missing a day of work due to illness in all his 50 years of work. "And I didn't baby myself he grin- ned. "I don't even go to bed early. In fact I don't believe anyone should go to bed the same day they get up. Every day is exciting in some way; there's always something to get mad at, or an incident to get a laugh over." Now that he has lots of time on his hands Mr. Jacobsen isn't going to allow himself to get bored. "My wife and I are go- ing to do same travelling in he said, "we have relatives all over the place. We'll have more time to spend with our four grown children, which is what most parents like LABOR Corner 13th St. and 2nd Ave. N. WEEKLY BINGO EVERY MONDAY 8 p.m. Cash Jackpot in 55 Nos........
