Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Book your Charier Flight to Britain now Several departure dates available New low roloi (Subleet to Government Approval) ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL 32M201 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lothbridge, Alberta, Tuesday, March 6, 1973 PAGES 13 TO 20 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall lethbrldge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS More money for private schools asked By GREG McINTYRE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Social Credit MLA for Lethbridge West called for more money for separate schools but a tightening up on student loans in the budget speech debate Monday in the legislature. Dic'k Gruenwald, a former separate school I ills lee, said private schools should receive government support so that public schools "aren't excused from competition." Student loans, however, are "too available" allowing stu- dents to get over their heads in debt by to a year. "Parents today are not pre- pared to sacrifice for their chil- he declared. "They say why should I do it let them go ahead and borrow." He said perhaps the 7% per cent budget ceiling on an in- crease in school spending this year is partly to blame for the current dispute with teachers in 18 rural Alberta school dis- tricts. Perhaps "budget constraints" arc preventing trustees from olfertog enough money to teachers, said Mr. Gruenwald. "Local government must have the right to collect taxes and the right to spend them." The opposition MLA praised a 26 per cent increase in the 1973-74 provincial budget for schools for the retarded. He said the government couldn't be criticized for helping those unable to help themselves. However, he objected to money for the RCMP centen- nial celebrations during 1973 to 1B75 saying million is a pretty expensive parly." T h e Lethbridge insurance agent also called for increas- ing the speed limit on the Cal- gary to Edmonton highway. It is currently 70 mph Edmonton to Red Deer and G3 mph Red Deer to Calgary during the day. Outsiders commit half local crimes By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer About half of the crimes in Lethbridge in 1972 were com- mitted by residents of other Vegetable growers meeting discusses compulsory board A compulsory m a r k e t ing board system has been predict- ;ed for the Alberta vegetable following a three-hour "closed grower meeting in Brooks Monday. R u e b e n Huber, outgoing president of the Alberta Fresh Vegetable Marketing Commis- sion, said in a telephone inter- view tliis morning a resolution calling for a marketing board will come before the annual meeting of the commission late this afternoon. Arising from discussion dur- ing the industry's first closed growers meeting and the an- nual meeting of the Alberta Fresh Vegetable Growers As sociatton Monday, the rcsolu lion is a result of poor grower support of the commission, said Mr. Huber. He said for the two years of the commission's existence many growers haven't properly supported the marketing com mission. The lack of support was mainly in neglecting to submi monthly reports .of sales, wher the product was sold and how much was derived from th sales, said Mr. Huber. These reports are vital to til operation of the commissio since they give a firm indica tion of the size of the industry and where the product is going If there is a discrepancy in th marketing, price or movemen of product, the commissio can then take measures to cor rect that discrepancy, He said because aren't getting information the commission, because grower habits and a weaknes of marketing intelligenc many sell products for lowe prices than they have to. "This sets the price for th rest of the growers in the i he said. "For this reason, I predict that the growers will vote in favor of asking for a plebiscite to implement a marketing system in Alberta." Mr. Huber said there will be report from the Alberta gricultural Products Market- g Council until late summer. lie report wilt be made fol- owing four public hearings in anuary. He said this means the vege- ible growers be into another crop year and will have ost another year before action vill be taken. He said the industry is losing ommerdal vegetable growers ach year because of the mar- ng system which doesn't fcA the grower from price silting. "Soon -we'll have to start the r. getable industry from scratch, and that will be a long he said. Chairmen differ on elections A suggestion that, .school board elections be separated from civic voting brought di- vided thoughts today from the chairmen of Lethbridge's two boards of trustees.

Ph. 327-5816 Doug McPherson said he can- not agree with the suggestion and cannot support Mr. Hynd- man's idea that board chair- men also be elected separately by the public. Under existing policies, trus- tees and aldermen are elected at the same time. School board chairmen are selected from successful candidates for trus- tee. U school boards are going to hold separate elections, it is going to cost a considerable amount. As Mr. Hyndman is well aware, the school boards of Ihis province are already in a financial Dr. Mc- Pherson said. He said Mr. Hyndman's con- tention that school board elec- tions are over shadowed by municipal politics is not neces- sarily true in Lethbridge. Dr. McPherson said there is "r.o justification" for electing a school board chairman in a manner similar to that of mayoralty polls. "When that day ever comes, you're looking at a job for a full time administrator. Any one of the trustees (on any board) is perfectly capable of chairmanship, leadership and Dr. McPherson said. Lethbridge separate board chairman John Boras said Mr, Hyndman's suggestions are "a step in the right direction. "One of the problems always has been that school elections have been lost in the pertinent civic Issues of the time of a municipal election. "Trusteeship is a much more important position and schools should be in control of local authorities.

At p.m. a Decision necej on Highway 3 A decision in whether a temporary load restriction will be necessary on Highway 3A between Highway 3 and the road to the university may be made in the near future. City engineer Randy Holfeld said the ban, which could restrict the use of the road soon A load limit trucks weighing less than one ton, might be necessary soor because of the recent mile weather and its affect on the roadbed. The ban is being considerec because of the poor condition and high maintenance costs of the road. Mr. Holfeld said the roat could, in perhaps 10 or 15 years, become restricted to an access to recreation areas in the river valley. A ban this spring would mean an extra minute ot driving time for buses and trucks travellini to the university from the city Mr. Holfeld estimated.

That slalement is true, if you are one of the faithful Christians observing ancient fast customs of Lent. Today is Shrove Tuesday, sometimes has been called pancake day. Originally, the Lenten fast ruled out all fats, so the faithful joined hilariously in one last meal oE pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, Archdeacon Cecil Swanson ot St. Augustine's Anglican Churchh explained today. Lent is a 4frday season of self-examination and penitence which commences with Ash Wednesday. Foreheads of Christians observing the Ash Wednesday custom are marked with Ihe sign of the cross by a priest who dips his finger in a bowl ol ashes from palm leaves used at the previous year's Palm i season ic and Lutheran churches, St. Augustine's Anglic a n -Church will conduct morning ommunion services at and a.m. All" three Lutheran congrega-ions will conduct a six-week series under the theme: The Word from the Cross. Each of he ministers will speak twice in each Lutheran pulpit. Services are Wednesday evening at p.m. Catholic congregations plan to combine at St. Patrick's Church Wednesday.

Patrick's will be conducted at a.m.; p.m. and p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m., noon and 7 p.m. Saturday. Stations of the Cross will be observed Friday at p.m. throughout Lent. Lethbridee Minislerial Asso- Sugar gets equal promotion Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Sugar from Alberta sugar beets is only one cf many products promoled in provincial government marketing programs, Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer said enlres, Police Chief Ralph Mi- lelson said in a Herald inter- ew Monday. "This speaks well for the pro- ,ram3 we run for young peo- le in the the chief said, and it appears that part of 10 prevcntative work we are oing is paying off." ''But, we have no control over xople that come from. r from the district." Chief Michelson said the orce lias committed three men almost entirely to running pro- grams in local schools, and that on their own time, are teaching first aid, or work- ng with youth groups in the aty. HUME KATE The crime rale in the city ncreased in 1972 by seven pel cent, but Chief Michelson attri butes the increase partly tc new methods of statistical re- porting. Statistics Canada now ask: ni stolen bicycles be in- cluded in theft offences am Chief Michelson feels that tlii. inclusion presents an unfai picture as most of these bi cycles are found several day after they have been reportec stolen. The increase in violeii crimes, excluding assaults, 1972 over 1971 stands at Uv per cent, however the base tig ures are low enough to rende percent age comparisons in valid. In 1971, there were 35 com missions of violent crime, an in 1972, 38 violent crimes oc CUlTCd. Crimes ot violence inclut murder, rape, robbery and ot or violent actions against pec pie. BREAK-INS The incidence of break a enter offences showed one le highest increases 312 971 to 334 in 1972. This increase doesn't partic arily bother Chief Michelso Because the biggest part of t ncrease can be attributed wo groups, who, bctwee hem, committed about 50 i X'ak-ins last year. At least 30 break-ins were committed, Chief Michelson said, by three young Lethbridge residents who were out on bail 'or similar offences. And another series of 20 Jreak-ins were the responsibil- ty of several local juveniles who were in various stages of court proceedings on other charges. "They should have been out on he said, "but it's just one of the problems you have when you're trying to work with these kids." The clu'ef said that most of the break-ins in 1972 were com- mitted by "young but many of the break-ins so far in 1973 have been committed by perienced criminals travel- ig through the city. "I'm a lot more worried Dout ho said. "We can ke care of the local problem, ut we've got problems with icople hitting and going." Commenting on general rime statistics contained in force's annual report for 972, released last week, Chief lichelson said they indicate iat Lethbridge policemen are doing their job." 'With less men and lower po- cc costs (than many other we're doing as good a ob as anywhere else." Most police forces are asking or more men, the chief said, ut the force here took the ap- roach that larger police forces vere nut the answer to solving rime. "When I came to the force, looked over the operations and I was not satisfied with ho amount of work we were getting from the men we le said. By re-organizing the force, and providing more ppportun- ly for promotion within the ranks, the chief says that mor- ale is better, and that man- inwer is being effectively used. COMPARISON'S Figures in the annual report show that Lethbridge has 1.34 wlice officers per popula- :ion compared to figures of 1.74, 1.81, 1.7, and 1.9, in Ed- monton, Calgary, Alberta, and Canada, respectively. Lethbridge has 2.54 police- men per square mile, com- pared to 58.0 in Montreal, 18.6 in Vancouver, 4.1 in Calgary, and 6.C in Edmonton. Per capita policing costs in Lethbridge are while each Calgarian pays for police services, and the per capita cost in Edmonton is The ctiief said these figures were not included in the annual report to show a need for more men in the force, but to show that Lethbridge policemen arc "doing their job" with less cost and CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
