CROSS WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN Evaluation The Lethhridge public school district may become part of pilot PPBS system, with partial financing from the Alberta de- partment of education. PPBS refers to Planning, Programming, Budgeting Sys- tems. "We're going to find it diffi- cult to make ends meet this year due to the budget squeeze and we may have a small schools superintendent Dr. 0. P. Larson told trustees Tuesday evening. It could get worse next year, too, lie added, since teachers mil likely ask for minimum 10 per cent salary increases with the recent City of Lethbridge employee settlements amount- ing to about 10 per cent or more. Department of education fi- nancing will increase by only six per cent, so Dr. Larson said some studies have to be made of the internal operations and programs of the school dis- trict. The government's PPBS pi- lot project would help to fi- nance the necessary study, he said but only 10 projects will be established and already, 14 school districts have applied to be included. Dr. Larson said he has con- tacted the department of edu- cation, and officials said they would be interested in having Lethbridge as one part of the project. The department will supply up to 50 per cent of the study's cost and send systems analysis experts to the project cities to assist. One of the department's special PPBS branch officials is Bill Duke, a former Lethbridge high school inspector. Dr. Larson said the study would investigate existing pro- grams in junior and senior high schools (little can be changed in elementary Programs such as vocational training, business education, physical education, music and art will be evaluated and their o b j e c fives established. The next step will be to determine what they cost to operate. Finally, the priorities in terms of cost-versus value of objectives of each program will be set. From the resulting informa- tion it will be possible to es- tablish whether or not to con- tinue to offer the program, and if it is important but funds may not be available, the board will have some basis on which to ask more provincial support or turn to a local pleb- iscite as now required by the department of education. Computers will be used ex- tensively in the project, Dr. Larson said. COURT FINES Court fines and costs paid at the Lethbridge city police sta- tion amounted to for May, 1970.

The fast-moving current is created by the water passage under the CPR tracks. The ducklings had entered the aquaduct from the entrance at Lake Newell about 1W miles from the underground culvert, and were unable to get out. At lost count, four ducklings had been swept by the current, under the tracks and out the other side, a distance of about 166 feet Fisherman on the other side said "the ducklings came out swimming._________ Jobs For Girls There's only one way an em- ployer these days can make students happier than offering jobs to the guys: offer them to the girls. The Canada Manpower Cen- tre student placement division in Lethbridge says it is receiv- ing continued and excellent co- operation from city businesses in employing students for the summer, and the number of placements so far exceeds the figure at the same time in 1959. But girls are still high on CMC's unemployment list. regular placements for all students are much tetter than they were last year, and things have improved since April this year, said Grant Pisko, one of the students in charge of Manpower's student placement. "Unfortunately lately the cas- ual placements are down from what they were a few weeks added Joe Pupp, another CMC student officer. They urged homeowners and businessmen to look at their property to see if they could use some temporary help to clean things up or otherwise work for a day or so. Mr. Pupp said students have also quit reporting in to the CMC office lately, and are too- often out of touch when come available. City Manager To Arrive July 27 Thomas Nutting, Lethbridge's new city manager, is scheduled to arrive in the city July 27. Mayor Andy Anderson said Tuesday Mr. Nutting will be ready to go to work as of Aug. 1 Tom Ferguson, the present city manager, will stay on until the end of the year, until Mr. Nutting becomes familiar with the city hall routine. Waterton Advisory Council Disbands The five man W at e r t o n I townsite was so rigidly con- Lakes advisory council met for trolled by the federal govern- the last time June 22 and agreed to disband as of June 30. There were no nominations for a new council and the pres- ent advisory council ment a strong chamber cf com- merce would be the answer to their problems. The council claimed there co-operation between them and the parks manage- ment. W. K. Sloan, council chair- man, said many businessmen in the park spend two or three years training young employees only to lose them to the federal government, which offers high- er1 wages. The Herald contacted T. L. Ross, Waterton Lakes National Park superintendent, and he ex- plained the procedure for hir- ing in the federal park. LITTLE WHITE SCHOOL HOUSE Many senior resi- dents of the city who attended schools here in the early years of the century will recall their school-days with a touch of nostalgia. This replica of an early, one-roomed school-house is displayed in the Sir Alexander Gait Mus- eum, which is open to the public daily from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. More For LCI Addition Lethbridge public school trus- tees added to the mil- lion cost of (he Lethbridge Col- legiate Institute addition Tues- day evening in their final meet- ing until the fall school semes- ter.

Increased telephone and intercom units, and plumbing, are the other major items in- volved. The changes involve about square feet of the school, and for that area the cost will increase by per square foot for electrical equipment and liO cents per square foot for acoustical ceilings. The school's laboratory still will also be hooked up, now that formal approval has been received from the federal de- partment of internal revenue, which must approve all stills. Security Police In Parks The city parks and recrea- tion department employs spe- cial security police to patrol parks and recreation areas in the city because city police can't handle all the routine Reply Received On Tax Brief The Lelhbridge Chamber of Commerce has received a reply from Finance Minister Edgar Benson to the cham- ber's brief on Mr. Benson's White Paper on taxation. Bowns, chamber general manager, said Mr. Benson's letter will be given to the co- chairmen of the committee that prepared the brief, Dr. Frank Christie and Gordon Patterson, for their evaluation. Details of the reply will be released later. checks necessary to guard the parks. Holly Doe, parks foreman, said the department hires men on an hourly basis from South- ern Securities Services for pe- riodic checks on H e n d e r son Lake, Indian Battle Park and Dave Elton Park as well as any other park where problems of vandalism are possible. He.said the men stagger the times and the parks where they patrol because the city police can't handle it all. "We use the city police on all police matters but use the service for routine patrols." CHAMBERMAIDS Eight students experienced as chambermaids are available for summer jobs through the Canada Manpower Centre stu- dent placement division in Leth- bridge. The eqiu'pment is used to make distilled water needed for various science laboratories. In other business, the board turned down requests from LCI and Winston Churchill High School for paving parking lots at the two schools. Mac Crumley, public schools secretary treasurer, told trus- tees the money was not avail- able in the current budget. The requests will be review- ed in the spring for the 1971 budget. Injuries Said Death Cause A coroner's jury this mor- ning ruled the death of Mrs. Lydia Crook, of Pincher Creek was caused by injuries she suf- fered in a car accident May 15, eight miles west of Fort Mac- lecxi on Highway 3. Tlie jury recommended the department of highways re-ex- amine the stretch of highway and make improvements if ne- cessary. Evidence revealed the driver of 'he other car involved in the accident attempted to pass two cars, not seeing the Crook ve- hicle approaching. When tlie driver saw the Crook vehicle he attempted '.o cut back into his own lane in doing so lost control of the car and slid sideways the Crook vehicle. A list of available jobs are drawn up by the government early in spring and submitted to the Canada Manpower Cen- tre. CMC advertises the vacan- cies and interviews and screens applicants. Names of persons who meet the requirements are then referred to the park offi- cials. Tiie successful applicants are then screened and reviewed by the park and an eligibility list is drawn up for each job avail- able. Persons whose requirements best fit the job are placed on the top of the list. They are contacted by mail and if they are still interested they get the job. If not the next person is contacted and so on down tlie list. Some of the persons who had quit working for the Waterton businessmen to take a govern- ment job had applied as early as January and their names were near the top of the eligi- bility list, Mr. Ross said. Salary Study To Be Made A committee will be set up to study the salaries of city non union administrative and supervisory staff, Mayor" Andy Anderson said Tuesday. The 46 employees were giv- en a 10.5 per cent increase for one year Monday, which the ma- yor said was in line with in- creases granted in Calgary and Edmonton.

"And still, no one should be too particular about the kind of jobs that become Capt. Kenneth A.
