Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 If You Ask Me By HERB JOHNSON 'pHE nation-wide Committee for an Independent Canada has begun to get organized in Lethbridge. Petitions have been circulated, asking for support. An organizational meeting has been held. As I understand it, the committee wants just what it says - an independent Canada, free from foreign economic exploitation and outside influence of all kinds. Canada for Canadians and everyone else keep out. Count me out. * ? * The battle to get nd of Amencian economic domination (the U.S. is the big bogeyman) is a losing battle, and I'm not interested in losing battles. If the cause were one I felt to be just and worthy, I might lend my support, despite a natural tendency to avoid any kind of hassle. In this case, the battle is based on something which is obviously not a worthy cause. It is based on national pride, pure and simple. National pride (one of the more obvious causes of war) at a time when our shrinking globe can ill afford any activity on the part of any country that looks even remotely like it might be war-like. I'm not saying the committee is about to declare war. I am sa5dng nationalism is outmoded and extremely disfunctional as far as today's world is concerned. ? ? * We are supposed to be moving toward world peace. Nations that go around proclaiming their feelings of national pride are not helping the cause. It is foolish to become concerned with preserving the identity of a nation when the real question is world survival. The most ridiculous part is that we are already imder heavy American cultural influence and have been for some time. Why worry? Even if we become a part of the United States we wouldn't change that much, although our economic position might improve if we were with the States, rather than fighting them off. There are easily recognizable differences in culture within the United States. Montana is not the same as Georgia. Suppose we went so far as to join the U.S. Could we not be different from the other states? Why are we so uptight about our precious Cana-diaj(i identity? Pride is one of the seven deadly sins. Why not swaUow ours and apply for statehood? Boarding house not closing Ckmtrary to a story carried in The Herald last momth, a boarding house run by Mrs. Julia Fischer of Lethbridge is not expected to close down. Mrs. Fischer told The Herald the report of her ceasing opera- iee vs for fast, expert PHOTO NISHIIIfi Complete sfocfcs of Kodak Film, too Anglo Distributors Stereo & Photographic Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 tions in the near future was not true and that she had rooms available. Similar operations run by iVLrs. Mary GaU and Mrs. Ann Foley also have space most of the time. All three have rooms available at the present time. Mrs. Foley said she "didn't know what the fuss was about" regarding rooms for transients. The original story quoted May Thurston, supervisor of the Iflcal AID centre, as expressing concern over a possible lack of acconrnrodation for such people.

It's the most blood at one clinic since 1964. Aim is better visibility Work plan set on intersection bylaw By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter The city administration apparently intends to move carefully in implementing bylaw 2897, which regulates trees, fences and other obstructions at intersections. The caution evidenced in executive order No. 8 which delegates implementation of the bylaw to the engineering director, echoes city council's reluctance to come to a quick decision on the matter. Council first brought the matter up early last summer, then tabled it in order to gauge public reaction and more accurately assess the situation. The bylaw was given third and final reading Feb. 9. City Manager Tom Nutting's executive order regarding implementation lists tlie immediate steps to be taken. Tlie fu-st move will be to notify all owners of serviced but undeveloped comer lots of the contents of the bylaw. Basically, the bylaw prohibits obstructions within 25 feet of intersections. The corner, from which the distance is measured, is defined as that point where the two edges of the usable roadway nearest the property intersect. No trees, shrubs or hedges may be allowed to grow to a height of more than three feet above the established elevation of the centre point of the intersection. Trees shall be trimmed so that branches are not closer than five feet from the eleva- AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES tion of the centre of the intersection. The bylaw applies equally to trees and shrubbery planted before the bylaw was passed. In addition to notifying the owners of underdeveloped lots so that they may plan their landscaping accordingly, the engineering departmrait is to iw-epare a list of all lots in the city that contravene the bylaw. No immediate steps apparently will be taken in the downtown area. Mr. Nutting's instructions state that while many commercial buildings in the downtown area could be said to be interfering with good visibility and safe traffic flow, the intent of the bylaw has been interpreted to apply to obstructions to visibility in areas where motorists would not normally expect them, that is, outside the commercial district. Once the list of lots tliat contravene the bylaw has been prepared the city will send out notices of violation to the owners. This is to be done in the first part of MJay. Compliance with the bylaiw is expected within 45 days in tJiose cases where trees, shrubs or whatever can be easOy removed. If no action Is taken by the Owner a second notice will be sent. If nothing is done within 30 days the city may then remove the obstruction and charge the expense to the owner. Up to one year will be allow- Warm trend in offing Warmer, more seasonable temperatures are expected to prevail in southern Ali)erta today and Sunday, with the retreat of the cold Artie high and the advance of a Pacific low. As tlie low pressui-e system settles itself, skies will remain mostly clear, and winds will pick up from the west at about 20 m.p.h. and gusting. The high and low temperatures should be 35 above and 10 above respectively. Temperatures Sunday should be near 40 above during the day, dropping down to about 15 above overnight. Friday's high and low temperatures were 24 above and four below. Record temperatures for March 6 are 65 above set in 1905 and 36 below set in 1951.

Mr. Nutting says a public meeting may be held to ex^ plain the bylaw and its implementation if this is felt to be necessary. Further evidence of the city's concern for the rights of the individual comes from John Hammond, city solicitor. At the time the bylaw was passed Mr. Hammond told city council he felt it should contain some provisions for citizens to appeal if they felt the bylaw was unfaii- in their par-ticiular case. Mr. Hammond told The Herald the dty had to follow the Municipal Government Act and that until something could be worked out with the department of municipal affairs no such provision could be written into the bylaw. He said negotiations had been started with the department on the matter. John R. HUlton, a Calgary labor relations officer has been appointed as conciliation officer in the Lethbridge and Medicine Hat joint teachers' contract negotiations. The announcement was made Friday by the Alberta department of "labor, following application earlier in (he week by the two cities' school baords, although the Alberta Teachers' Association had opposed the application. John Boras, chairman of the Lethbridge separate school board and vice-chairman of the trustees' negotiating committee, said the negotiations sessions had "developed loggerheads" and nothing further could be gained by more face-to-face talk. Joe Berlando, the Alberta Teachers' Association negotiator, protested that teachers and trustees "haven't even finished bargaining all of the proposals in our contracts yet." Mr. Berlando told The Herald Friday the department of labor views the situation as one it can find a solution to "because the two parties have come to agreement on a number of the issues. However, he said, two issues seem almost insurmountable: the rights of teachers to be consulted by trustees' concern-ing policy changes, and several working conditions, particularly school hours. Meanwhile, the ATA Is awaiting the decision by Mr. Hutton, also the conciUation officer in the dispute between the South-em Alberta School Authorities Association and about 1,300 southern Alberta teachers outside of Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. Mr. Berlando said a decision is expected this weekend and should be announced early next week. He said Mr. Hutton may make recommendations concerning specific terms of contract settlement, or the establishment of a full conciliation committee to review all aspects of the dispute. Tlie SASAA region is the largest of eight regional bargaining setups in Alberta this year, and Mr. Berlando said it is the regional bargaining and larger city areas which have involved the most-troubled negotiations, from both a teacher and a trustee point of view. None have yet been settled on a regional basis. Many school boards this year opited to bargain on a regional basis instead of individually, with the new Alberta School Act's sections placing negotiating under the Labor Act. the Labor Act allows regional bargaining, which the old School Act would not permit under normal circumstances. About 6,600 of Alberta's 23,-000 teachers are involved in regional bargaining. Minor injuries Randy Tliom, 8, of 1232 8 Ave. N., was treated for minor injuries and released from St. Michael's General Hospital late Friday, after the bicycle on which he was riding was in collision with a car driven by Allan James Burrows of the city, at 9th Ave. and 12 St. A.
