Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday Mot'n 4, 1971 TH( IETHMIDGE HIKAID Armory doors slammed on transient youth which' as OTTAWA (CP) The defence department has let it he known that it doesn't want armories used as hostels for transient youth again this summer. The federal government is reported to be examining with the provinces the idea of using high sd'ool gymnasiums and auditoriums defence department's opposition to conversion of armories to drop-in centres was conveyed indirectly but clearly in a memorandum on its capability for taking part in this summer's government youth program. "Hie memorandum was prepared for the secretary department, wnicn as the co-ordinating agency had asked all federal department's to advise it of the facilities they can make available for the program. Reliable sources said the defence department offered to do most of what it did last year-provide cadet and special nuli- tia training, and put young peo-1 at 12 armories during a summer >le to work clearing ranges and of unusually high mobility on Dial-a-bus system test set for Regina in fall REGINA (CP) The intro- duction of a dial-a-bus system this fall was announced Wed- nesday by Wally Atkinson, gen- eral manager of Regina's Iran- Bit system. The system will be tested in two phases in the southwest areas of the city, the first be- ginning in September and the second in April, 1972. Mr. Atkinson said the sys- tem will be similar to one tried successfully in Mansfield, Ohio in 1970. The transit manager said the two areas were chosen because they are small and subsidies to transit service in the areas al- ready are quite large. In some cases it costs the city for every 25-cent fare collected, he said. NOTHING TO LOSE "We have nothing to lose but our deficits." Residents in the areas will be able to telephone the tran- sit system information office and indicate at what time they want to be picked up at their home. The message will be relayet by radio to the transit driver working in the area on a flex Me route and lie will pick up the passenger at the appoint ed time. Mr. Atkinson said the bus will only stop in front of the house to pick up a passenger if he is outside and ready tc go. The driver will not wait 01 leave the bus to ring a door bell. Passengers will be taken to a transfer point and, if loads require, direct express servic could be made to the down town area, Mr. Atkinson said PAY PREMIUM He said it is expected adul users of the service will pay 10 cent premium over the reg ular fare of 25 cents a trip or five tickets for while chil dren will pay five cents mort than the regular 10-cent fare. The city already has spen on initial work and probably will spend another to for consultants before tests are completed, Mr. Atkinson said. If the system is eventually More natural dopted for larger areas of the ity, it would mean a greater ise of specialized equipment such as smaller buses for some outes. telephone and compu- er systems. ,Mr. Atkinson said question- lires will he sent to residents in the Initial test areas in an effort to program and plan the new service. During the summer the tran- sit department will start tak- ing subscriptions from passen- gers who want to be picked up on a regular basis, he said. ioing maintenance chores army bases. However, it made no mention of opening the armories to trav- elling youth as it did last sum- mer. If the government decides nevertheless that armories are !o be used for this purpose, ft may have a battle on its hands. Defence Minister Donald Mac- donald is against the idea, feel- ing as the military high com- mand does that armories are not suitable as drop-in places. OFFICERS CHAGRINED Last spring, when the govern- ment ordered armories thrown open for this purpose, the mili- tary had no choice but to go along. But officers made no at- tempt to hide their chagrin at seeing the drill halls, used pri- marily for militia training, turned over to persons they de- scribed as "hippies." All told about young people put in bed-nights IK part of youthful Canadians. Military authorities adnrit that and large the patrons behaved themselves reasonably well, despite troubles over a Vancouver armory that youths didn't want to vacate when the season was over. Nevertheless, they insist that lack of sanitary facilities, show- ers and the like makes an ar- mory a poor hostel. They say schools are ideailv suited for such a role. An official of the state secre- tary's department, asked to con- firm that the provinces have been asked to make school facil- ities available, said discussions are being initiated with the provinces on all aspects of this summer's youth program. He expressed hope that the two levels of government will be able to take co-ordinated action. The program is expected to be announced in about three weeks.

Essentially, the move frees more natural gas for export. The board estimates billion cubic feet of gas will be used in the period ending Dec. 31, 1999, down from its previous estimate of billion cubic feet. The needs of commercial us- ers such as stores, apartments and business were expected to rise and a new provision was made for the operating require- ments of gas utility companies. Those increases be more offset by reduction in the amount of gas needed by resi- dential users and industries such as rnaiJUiacturirig plants The board, in a report re- leased here said industria growth trouM he slower than originally forecast mainly be- cause of less favorable pros- pects for iron processing in the province's north. Growing use of electricit would also cut into the Indus trial use but the board predict ed billion cubic fee would have to he set aside for power generation. i The board regulates all pet- roleum production in the prov- ince and requires domestic needs for the next 30 years must be met before only gas in excess of those needs can be exported. Hearings were held last sum- mer to obtain forecasts from the petroleum industry and oth- er gas users on the province's future needs. The hearings, which are to ho repeated every Ihree years, were the basis for the require- ment revisions.
