T__ ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 d-bearing used in local The load-bearing concept in modem construction enables 5,-000 square feet of concrete flooring to be placed in an apartment building in four hours. This is evident in a nine-storey high - rise apartment under way east of the College Mall in Lethbridge. The concept has been used in Europe for many years and was introduced into Canada several years ago. In the construction, the pre-c a s t, pre-stressed concrete slabs, eight inches thick, are lowered into position on the walls and partitions of the building. The slabs are four feet wide. Originally they are cast in Con-Force Ltd. plants, under the trade mark Spen-Deck, in 250-foot lengths. COLLEGE BOARDS OF GOVERNORS The Minister of Education, Robert Clark, requests nominations for the appointment of persons to serve on the boards of governors of the six Alberta public colleges. There are two vacancies on each of the following boards: 1. Lethbridge Community College 2. Medicine Hat College 3. Mount Royal College 4. Red Deer College 5. Grant McEwan Community College (Edmonton) 6. Grande Prairie College Nominations should provide pertinent information concerning the nominee's background and qualifications. Appointments are normally for a three-year period commencing July 1, 1971.

Those in the high-rise project near College Mall are 22 feet long. The slabs have hollow troughs running through their length, giving lighter weight construction. The slabs are glazed on the underside, suitable for a ceiling in the apartment. The top side is suitable for covering with carpeting.

Labor to join pollution fight An active participation by labor in the fight against pollution may "cost us some jobs" but it is necessary, George Home said at the closing banquet Saturday for the Lethbridge and District Labor Council education institute. Mr. Home is political education director for the Canadian Labor Congress. He said pollution control starts with "you and I" and one important role the labor councils in Canada can play is to join all the anti-pollution groups active in the various communities. These groups who are fighting pollution will suffer from a propaganda campaign by people who don't realize the dan- ger of pollution. Labor can help, he said. There are several don'ts individuals can follow to help in the fight, including: don't litter highways; don't use colored facial tissue; don't throw cigarette filters down the toilet; and don't use the car unnecessarily. He said the labor movement has begun to stress pollution a n d in the 70s, it will become one of the major issues in collective bargaining. "Workers want some say in their industries which will allow them to help in the fight against pollution. "One of the important points of the grape workers' strike in California was the workers wish to have some say in the amount of pesticides used by the growers. "The steel workers, oil, chemical and atomic workers and pulp and paper workers unions are actively working toward the same type of result." He said the responsibility of provincial government is high in the fight. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario are the only provinces to form environmental councils. The federal government is starting to pass legislation to fight pollution. This is good but the action is too late. Pollution is now an international problem. When It Comes To Being Beautiful . . .
