Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June 1974 School board ponders sale of 13-acre site in southeast Lethbridge To sell or not to sell is the major decision facing the Lethbndge Public School Board in a special summer meeting today. The public school district owns a 13-acre parcel of land in Southeast Lakeview that is no longer needed as a future school site and trustees must decide whether they will sell it on public tender or hold it until the city begins to encourage development in that area. Trustees will be informed by letter today by their solicitor that it may be wise to maintain possession of the property to take advantage of increased land values, should the city encourage expansion in the Lakeview area. Earlier this year, the public school board offered the land to the city at "fair market value" but the city indicated it was not interested in the land because its expansion emphasis was'on development in West Lethbndge. The 13-acre site was eliminated as a possible location for a new school because of decreasing student numbers and a projected low student population for the area. The school board purchased the 13 acres for in 1961. In other business, the trustees will study a- rough draft of a joint-use agreement between the public board and the city for the community use of some of the facilities in the Gilbert Paterson School. The city provided of the estimated cost of renovations and expansion to the school this spring. New construction at the school includes a library, gymnasium and an addition to the industrial arts shop. The city participated in the capital expenditure of Gilbert Paterson School to provide people residing in the area with several different types of facilities. It is hoped the availability of facilities in that area will stimulate interest among local community groups to use the school, the director of city community services suggested in an interview Tuesday. When asked about the specific use the community could make of the school, Bob Bartlett speculated that senior citizens groups may want to use the lounge and meeting rooms, a local photography club may be interested in the darkroom and studios and several youth and adult groups might want to use the gymnasium and library. The trustees were under the impression the master joint- use agreement they have with the city for community use of all public schools would apply to Gilbert Paterson School. They have since discovered that a special agreement is needed because of the city's involvement in the capital cost of the expansion to the school. The school board is also expected to appoint a new principal of Lethbridge Collegiate Institute today to replace Ken Sauer when his resignation becomes effective Sept. 30. Mr. Sauer has accepted the position of superintendent with the Medicine Hat public schools. The appointment of assistant principals and administrative assistants to two or three other public schools is also on the agenda of today's meeting.

Norman Flamond, 323 3rd St S.. was seen by a city policeman coming out of a doorway in an alley in the 400 block between 5th and 6th Street S. about p.m. Monday. Court was told when the policeman asked Flamond what he was doing the accused didn't say anything. The policeman shined a flashlight in his eyes and Flamond took a swing at him. He ran and was later apprehended. Another police officer reported he. saw Flamond running with a dagger in his hand. When Flamond was searched, police found a 5.75- inch dagger in his possession. In sentencing him Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson said: "Nobody in possession of a weapon like that is going to get the option of a fine. You need a dagger as much as I need a dagger." The case of a 19-year-old Lethbridge youth who has been granted a new trial on two charges of trafficking in MDA was adjourned until Thursday to decide if the youth has a choice of which court he will be tried in. The case was adjourned in provincial court Tuesday for further study. Provincial Judge A. H Elford said the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of Alberta in its order for a new trial for Lawrence John McDougall had ordered McDougall be returned to provincial court for trial However, Crown Prosecutor Charles Virtue pointed out the Canadian Criminal Code stipulates a tnal by judge and jury when a new trial has been ordered. McDougall was convicted last Oct. 4 on two charges of trafficking in MDA and to four years in penitentiary. LIGHTNING TURNS ON TELEVISION Early morning thunderstorms in Lethbridge caused several power outages and have been blamed for turning on a city resident's television set. City firemen were called to Suite No. 202, 2110 15th Ave. N by Mrs. Clarence Sackman She told the firemen she was awakened when her bird began making a lot of noise. She then discovered a bright pattern on her television set but the set was turned off. Firemen believe lightning struck the television antenna, went down the wires and charged the set. The set was damaged but no estimate was available City emergency crews worked throughout the night on power outages. The outages were all on the city's north side Power has been returned to all areas except the 10th Avenue and 1700 block North district Bogus biil passed A counterfeit bill that has been termed by a city police inspector as "a good imitation" has been passed at a Lethbridge bank. Insp. Glen Michelson said a local bank contacted police Friday saying it had received what it believed to be a counterfeit bill. The serial number of the bogus bill is 5837037 Anybody with a bill with this serial number should contact city police, Insp. Michelson said. Whoop-Up visitors up Attendance at Fort Whoop Up during the first two weeks of operation is well over attendance figures for the same period in 1973. Fori officials say single admissions haven't increased appreciably, but the number of school children on tours has jumped from 250 for the first two weeks last year to 1.400 this year Schmidt nomination SC show of strength By AL SCARTH Herald Staff Writer TABER Alberta Social Credit Leader Werner Schmidt came home Tuesday night to open his latest bid at cracking the Alberta legislature and unifying his party. It was no surprise when Mr. Schmidt, 42, took the nomination for the Taber- Warner provincial constituency by acclamation. He sought the nomination with both the blessing of the local constituency association, which invited him to run, and the retiring Socred incumbent, Doug Miller. Other party members had every chance to contest the nomination but none appeared at the civic centre in this town 30 miles east of Lethbridge. There were three calls for nominations from the floor. About 150 supporters, among them a liberal sprinkling of party notables, gave their leader three standing ovations after his nomination. The show of party strength included Socred House Leader Bob Clark who will lose his job if Mr. Schmidt wins the next provincial election. Mr. Schmidt has been leading the party from outside the legislature. He has been unsuccessful in two previous bids to gain a seat in the House. He lost to Bert Hohol, now manpower minister, in Edmonton Belmont in the Conservative sweep of 1971. He lost again in a Calgary Foothills byelection in 1973 to Conservative Stewart McCrae. This third try in Taber- Warner brings him back to his birthplace. Coaldale, located within the constituency. It's not a safe Socred seat as far as he is concerned, Mr. Schmidt said after the nomination. "It's hometown. I was born in Coaldale and spent the first 20 years of my life there." If Mr. Schmidt can defeat Conservative candidate Bob Bogle, named just one week ago to contest the seat, and any other as yet unnamed opponents, he can become a viable leader. He has tramped the organizing trail throughout the province for the last 18 months. However, the voice of Social Credit has been expressed in the legislature by Bob Clark, defeated by Mr. Schmidt for the leadership, but eventually elected by his fellow opposition MLA's as house leader during Mr. Schmidt's enforced absence. Inevitable frictions have arisen between the two leaders. This latest attempt to put one head on the provincial party follows a showdown between the two men. Mr. Schmidt hit the campaign trail after the last confrontation, leaving statements in the legislature on party policy to Mr. Clark. His organizing activities have put as many as miles a month on hi's car's speedometer. "We're not going to be Mr. Schmidt said Tuesday in answer to a ques- tion about the next election. The support is being expressed at regional meetings in central, eastern and northern portions of Alberta, he said, not just in the south. He predicted the "outside chance" of an election being called this fall by Conservative Premier Peter Lougheed. But a spring election was more likely, he said. Mr Clark is predicting a fall election if the federal Conservatives take over power in Ottawa after the July 8 election, but a June or July date next year if the Liberals retain power. In the event of a Tory victory federally, he says, Mr. Lougheed will want to obtain a mandate before the inevitable frictions he has experienced with the federal Liberals on energy resources surface between himself and fellow Tory leader Bob Stanfield. If the Liberals'stay in power, the premier can afford to wait until the spring or summer, Mr. Clark said Tuesday. Lining up Tuesday to support Mr. Schmidt, whenever the election is called, were Mr. Clark, five other sitting Socred members, the federal Socred candidates for Lethbridge and Medicine Hat Vern Young and Ed Ens L. C. Halmrast, former Socred MLA for Taber- Warner and former minister of agriculture. Bill Johnson, past president of the Social Credit League of Alberta, and Eric Lingnau. the league's executive director. Sundial School reunion at weekend Former students of the Sundial School, eight miles north of Turin, are holding a reunion this weekend. The events begin Saturday afternoon at the old school house, now the Sundial Community Centre, according to Reeve Dick Papwortb, chairman of the event. There'll be a program, followed by a ball game and horseshoes. A dance will be held in the evening. Sunday, a barbecue will be held at 3 p.m. The three-room Sundial School opened in 1910 and for a number of- years offered education in Grades 1 to 12. In the 1930s this was cut back to Grades 1 to 9. In 1954 the school was closed and students rode the bus to Turin. "We've sent out about 300 invitations to former students and Mr. Papworth said. "There have been replies from points as distant as Vancouver." After the school was closed, he said, it was given to the community over the years the building has been renovated into a community hall. "We finally have it fixed up about the way we want he said, "and we decided to hold a reunion to celebrate." Clark flays profiteers TABER Meat packing companies were slapped by Alberta Opposition Leader Bob Clark Tuesday for profiteering on a lockout of their employees. "Don't ever think there isn't a large amount of meat bought a lot cheaper than it is being sold Mr. Clark told a nomination meeting here "A very, very sizeable gain is being made by some of the corporations he said. Swift Canadian, Canada Packers and Burns packing companies have already been criticized by Bert Hohol, Alberta Minister of Manpower and Labor, for imposing the lockout when negotiations with the Canadian Food and Allied Workers union looked hopeful. About plant employees have been locked out in Alberta since June 5. The workers should be allowed back to work while negotiations proceed, Mr. Clark said after the nomination meeting here. Mr. Clark said some packers have stockpiled supplies bought at lower prices, which are now being sold for much higher profits. "It is a good example of corporations ignoring their social he said. Later in the evening, Mr. Clark encountered the effects of the meat packing dispute first hand. He stopped in a Lethbridge restaurant for something to eat and he reports when he was given a menu it had a typed sticker at the bottom. He said it read. "Dear, customer, we are sorry but due to the meat cutters' strike, price line increased and we are forced to add a temporary 10 per cent surcharge on ail beef items, including the steak and lobster. And we hope that you understand and bear with us until the strike is over.'' Then hand-written below it read: "Also on lobster tail." Mr. Clark commented: "The last time I checked it wasn't a meat cutters' strike. The meat cutters were locked out by the packers."
