Don Newman of Plessey Canada Ltd. (international supplier and installer of telephone equipment) and E. H. Stark, business manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers could not agree to the non-union company (Plessey) signing temporary union cards. The temporary union cards would actually be work permits from the union allowing Plessey to work on the Project One building at the U of L site. The dispute revolves around the international policy of all building trades not to work with non-union workers on any project.

Roy Berlando, secretary of the Building Construction Trades Council, said if the cards were not signed, further action would be contemplated.

Dam crossing to west side suggested The possibility of a low-profile dam to be used instead of a bridge as a means of crossing the river is to be in vestigated by city council "at the proper time." The suggestion came from the water resources committee of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce. Council Monday decided to file the suggestion and look into it when the matter became more urgent. Alderman C. W. Chichester suggested it might be a project for a task force such as has been suggested by Deputy Mayor Rex Little. Aid. Joe Balla said the resultant flooding would put a serious crimp into the operation of the country club and necessitate a complete revision' of plans for river valley development for recreation. ject One building, sub-let a contract to Plessey Canada Ltd. to install a main switching unit in the building. The union workers walked off the job Thursday afternoon and went back to work Monday morning when Plessey workers did not work. That is the situation now. Union companies are working, Plessey workers aren't. March 15 decision on B and E charge William Haas Jr., 23, and Clarence Anthony Miller, 26, both of Lethbridge, appeared before Judge A. E. Elford Monday in Lethbridge magistrate's court on a charge of attempted breaking and entering at Acme Television Ltd. 535 13th St. N., early in the morning of Feb. 26. Judge Elford heard the evidence, but adjourned his decision to March 15 to study the question of what may be considered a voluntary statement OUR OSCAR CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 when an accused person is confronted by a policeman. During the trial Judge Elford refused to accept any statements made by Haas or Miller as being of a voluntary nature, once they had been informed they were being taken into custody. New information was presented in court that would change the separate charges for both men to a single joint-charge and prevent the need of two separate trials in which the same evidence would be presented. The new information was not acted upon on Monday, however, because of a complicated procedure which would have meant Haas would have had to go through the formality of posting bail again. Miller requested to be set free on his own recognizance but Judge Elford denied the request, saying, "he had reduced bail to $200 from $300 last week and he was not about to reduce it again." Both Miller and Haas were remanded until the judge's decision March 15. Miller has not raised bail; Haas will remain free on bail already posted until March 15. Concern over the rights of the individual Monday held up approval of the city's new fire bylaw. Voted down on second reading, the bylaw is to be amended by the city solicitor and brought back for a second try. The particular section that caused the problem stated that persons who do not allow fire inspectors to carry out their duties or who give false information are guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of not less than $20 and not more than $100. Alderman J i m Anderson voiced concern over giving fire inspectors the right to enter people's homes to make inspections. Fire Chief W. L. Russell assured council the right would not be abused. The fire department had no intention, he said, of forcing its way into homes without just cause but there were circumstances where it was necessary to make inspections for the sake of fire safety. Aid. Anderson agreed t h at the privilege would probably not be abused, but even one such incident would be too much. The whole discussion may have been purely academic. Chief Russell told council he was quite sure similar provisions were being provided for in upcoming provincial legislation. If this is the case, the offending section could be removed from the bylaw as it would be covered by the provincial ruling. A proposed amendment to the bylaw by Aid. Joe Balla was defeated. Aid. Balla asked that the section on fireworks be revised to allow sales of firecrackers and fireworks to persons over the age of 21. He said he had no quarrel with the sections regulating the setting off of fireworks but felt sales of firecrackers should be allowed to responsible persons. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said no one would ever convince him that there was any value in firecrackers and no way to justify the harm they could do to youngsters. As it stands now, the bylaw differentiates between firecrackers and fireworks. Firecracker sales are banned com- pletely. Fireworks can be purchased by persons over 21. Firecrackers cannot be set off within the city, while fireworks displays are strictly controlled. The bylaw contains a schedule of fees for permits ranging from $2 to $15 a year. The fee for storing radioactive material is $2, the higher fees are charged for such things as cel- lulose nitrate film, fireworks and plastics. City Manager Tom Nutting said the fees would probably cover most of the cost of hiring an additional fire inspector to enforce the bylaw. The bylaw does not impose any new restrictions on burning barrels. This is to be dealt with separately by council. $200,700 cleared for stores complex "I'd like to report a blessed event.

Braun was arrested in January and charged with illegal entry into Canada and illegal possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. He was also charged with the illegal importation of drugs into Canada. Braun is to appear before the Alberta Supreme Court in Lethbridge Tuesday to answer to the charge of illegal entry into Canada. Approval was granted Monday by city council for an appropriation of $200,700 to complete work on the city stores complex. The appropriation was questioned by Alderman Vera Ferguson, who said it appeared the work was being undertaken simply because the money was available. Tom Nutting, city manager, assured her that such was not the case and that the engineering department had long been aware of the need to have the work done. According to a report by Mr. Nutting, the total available funds for the project are $776,-700, while the contract price was $541,000. Incidental work such as fencing, lighting and paving were deleted from the contract and it is this work that is to be done now. The report says a balance of $35,000 will be left to be distributed to general revenue accounts. The new complex, at 280 5th St. N., is largely completed and some materials are already being stored there. Milk price increase opposed Esthetic quality stressed Mayor going to AUMA meet Mayor Andy Anderson is to head a Lethbridge delegation to Edmonton Wednesday to meeting of the executive of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association. The meeting is to discuss (he announced $38 million ceiling on provincial grants to municipalities. City Manager Tom Nutting said the ceiling would probably mean the city would be $80,000 to $100,000 short on projected revenues this year. Deputy Mayor Rex Little said it was a "very urgent matter." Aid. Little had previously suggested that the cutback in grants indicated a need for a complete restructuring of the taxation system. Lethbridge city council Monday went on record as opposing any increase in the price of milk. An increase has been requested by Purity Dairy Co-op Ltd. and Union Milk, a division of Silverwood Dairies Ltd. The Public Utilities Board has set a hearing date of April 21 to consider the request. After some discussion it was decided not to prepare a brief to the board, but simply to register opposition to the requested increase. No specific amount has been mentioned by the board in connection with the increase. City - council Monday gave second reading to an amendment to the zoning bylaw that provides for greater control over the esthetic quality of residential building. The amendment also gives the Municipal Planning Commission better control over fac-tory-fabricated houses. It would ensure that they are compatible with the surrounding area and would prevent large developments of identical houses. The section on esthetics allows the MPC to turn down applications if the development is felt to be detrimental to the surrounding area. R. AKR0YD itd.
