Lethbridge separate board superintendsnt Ralph Himsl told The Herald today his department is now working on financial projections to 1975. "We don't mind a long range plan a Mr. Himsl said. Local public board superin- tendent Dr. 0. P. Laison said his office has already project- ed budgets for 1973 and 1974 but there may be some problem in 1975. Both boards hold two-year collective agreements with their teachers and other em- ployees. Those agreements expire Dec. 31, 1974.

From Edmonton, Mr. Hynd- man told The Herald there should be little concern about grants decreasing in the next three years. "In fact, the amount bud- gstted for 1973 for the instruc- tional portion alone is million, approximately million more than last year. "If grants under other sec- tions and new project funds are included, the total in- crease in 1973 is more than Mr. Hyndman said. Despite the elementary de- creases anticipated for the next few years, the total projected payments for in- struction would amount to milion for 1974 and million for 1975, he said. A government review of en- rolments indicates decreases of approximately pupils each yesr at elementary lev- els from in 1972 to in 1975.

The total enrolment is-ex- pected to decrease by approx- imately pupils or by one per cent each year over the three-year period from 1972 to 1975. The total grants for instruc- tion are expected to increase by million or by approx- imately seven per cent each year from 1972 to 1975. "The adjustment of school systems to decreasing and shifting enrolments is an area in which school boards will require decisive action and local priority-setting over the next few Mr. Hynd- man said. "With population shifts, some school boards will be affected more than others. But payments are projected to increase despite the lag- ging enrolments." "There is no basis in Tact for an allegation that govern- ment is decreasing grants to school he said. Water hauler cleared of assault charges A charge of assault against Fort Macleod water hauler Marvin Vandervalk was dis- missed by Provinrial Judge Laurie Levine in Fort Mac- leod Wednesday. Mr. Vandervalk had plead- ed not guilty to ths charge laid by 80-year-old Jane Whipple that he crushed her finger while cutting a chain which locked the Whipple water well shut. The Whipple water well dispute began March 31 when Mrs. Whippls barricad- ed the access road, prevent- ing as many as 100 families from taking water from the well. Provincial Judge Levine dismissed the case because the evidence given In court was conflicting. Mr. Vandervalk also faced a charge of trespassing on Mrs. Whipple's private prop- erty and provincial Judge Le- vine reserved judgement on the charge until July 6.
