Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta f 14 - THI IfTHMIDOl HIRAID - Saturday, March If71 V of L work hit 'Walkout' talks Monday Representatives of union, construction management and the University of Lethbridge will decide Monday the steps necessary to resolve the wildcat walkout which halted U of L construction Thursday afternoon and Friday. Roy Berlando, secretary of the Building C o n s t r uction Trades Council, which represents all six of Lethbridge's 14 construction unions involved in the dispute, said, "The bone of contention is a clause in the construction trade union agreement which says every subcontractor that conies on any job must be unionized." Alberta Government Telephones has a contract with the University of Lethbridge to* install telephone equipment in the Project One building. Plessey Canada Ltd. (an in- Bouquet to city chamber for obtaining Claude Ryan The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce has been complimented for inviting and obtaining Claude Ryan, a Montreal publisher, as guest speaker at its annual dinner March 23. Norman Smith, editor of the Ottawa Journal and himself one of Canada's most distinguished Journalists, was asked by The Lethbridge Herald to make an assessment of Mr. Ryan for the benefit of people whose knowledge of Mm may be confined mostly to television interviews. Mr. Smith sent the following: If I may so so I think it is an imaginlative and stimulating thing that the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce should invite Claude Ryan to talk to it of his views on the root question confronting this country. Claude Ryan is a man of sensitivity and integrity. His manners are gentle and bis wit and urbanity are a joy to his friends. In Le Devoir he has for some years expressed what many of us thought to be sound views as to how best to develop English - French relations in Canada. We English Canadians proudly quoted him when be warned his fellow French Canadians that they too must be reasonable and be Canadian. We found him then a man of great intelligence but now that he is sayinlg things we don't like we tend to feel he has gone astray. I did not agree with huh when he joined a group asking for the release of FLQ prisoners and I disagree with some of the things he has written and said since then. For example, I doubt the move to separatism in Quebec is as wide or popular as he is suggesting. But it is absurd that we should dismiss him as a voice no longer deserving to be heard. Men of the qualify of Claude Ryan are needed to continue the long dialogue of this country's future. By hearing him we can also answer him. ternational supplier and installer of telephone equipment) has been engaged by AGT as a sub contractor to install some of this equipment. "Representatives of union met Friday with John Hall, trouble - shooter for Poole Construction Limited, and representatives of the U of L," Mr. Berlando said. "It was decided Mr. Han would return to Edmonton to get in touch with AGT, the sub-sub-contractor (Plessey Canada Ltd.) and E. H. Stark, business manager for the International Brotherh o o d of Electrical Workers." Mr. Berlando said Mr. Hall would ask Plessey Canada Ltd. employees to sign a temporary union card which would in effect be a union work permit. "We meet Monday with man* agement to get Mr. Hall's results. If they are negative, union will not stand for any aon  union men working on the job "If the dispute is not settled Monday, further action would be contemplated by union." Construction of the Project One building is proceeding in complete accord with the labor laws and regulations of the province, said R. F. Comstock, co - ordinator of physical plant operations development at the University of Lethbridge. There is no requirement that government projects such as the university buUdmg must utilize only unionized contractors, he said.

Snowflakes and Snow Queen Mickey Brown. - Miss Brown was indeed queen material, performing her part with flowing hand and body motions which captivated the audience. Her ability to catch the changes of the music was evident in the changing tempo of her number. From the land of ice and snow, the pair entered the Kingdom of Sweets, a land as colorful as it would have been tasty. They are met by the Chocolate Trio and the Candy Canes. Maura Knowles and Janet Hominuke, south Alberta Ladies Pairs champions, as the Candy Cane Pair and Anne Lanier, soith Alberta Novice Ladies champion, as the Sugar Plum Fairy, skated a particularly strong performance, a performance which had the audience calling for more candy canes and sugar plums. Deborah Stimson, assistant professional, skated Marzipan, featuring jumps and twirls enough to excite every taste bud. International flavor was injected in the review with Tea from China, Coffee from Arabia, Bon Bona from Spain and a Russian dance and trepak. Waltz of the Flowers was the final serious note in the Kingdom of Sweets. On the humorous side, a group of young boys performed as tumblers while eight fathers presented Pudge and Honey. They afforded a relief to the applauding hands while bring on pangs of laughter. Pas de Deux was skated by the Prince and Clara, noting the end of their journey through all odds to a life of happiness. The costumes bordered on the fantastic and the lack of props on the ice surface enable the audience to concentrate on the skaters. In a nut shell: terrific performance.
