(403) 32S-741I ADDING MACHINES Labor board head in city SASAA chairman Ray Clark said today he will not continue talks .Sunday. He said if agree- ment is not reached in the dis- pute today, he'll return home before resuming bargaining Monday. Mr. Clark said teachers have not relented from their demand for a 9.1 per cent wage boost. He said a figure of 7.5 per cent, originally reported as the teach- ers' latest request, is no longer valid. He said the number of schools which remain open, in event of a strike, will depend on the number of volunteers local districts can attract to man fa- cilities. The chairman of the Board of Industrial Relations arrived in Lethbridge last night to assist in the mediation of a contract dispute between the Southern Alberta School Trustees Asso- ciation and more than ru- ral teachers. Bob d'Eslerre's intervention in contract talks comes two days before rural teachers in 18 school districts are due to go on strike. The teachers have said they strike Monday if settlement is not reached in the dispute. Teaeliers have been without a contract since September of last year. Talks resumed March 6 under the supervision of the in- dustrial relations board. A spokesman for the teach- ers indicated it would be im- possible to fell at this point it Mr. d'Esterre's presence will make any difference in the ne- gotiations. "There sure will be more piessure he said. Meanwhile in Edmonton, La- bor Minister Bert Hohol said Friday talks are progressing in the rural Southern Alberta teachers' dispute and he was still hopeful of a settlement be- fore the midnight Sunday strike deadline. Dr. Hohol said in an inter- view he will be keeping in close touch during the weekend with negotiations proceeding in Lethbridge with the assistance of the Alberta industrial rela- tions board. Although Mr. d'Esterre was 'expected to take part in ne- gotiations in Lethbridge today, Dr. Hohol saifl it was possible he would get involved himself if the talks break down. MOVING?

The fee has used to promote livestock roducls, help finance the Ca- adian Cattlemen's Association nd to operate an office. The pamphlet projects that e check-off fee will be raised 5 40 or 50 cents per head from 0 cents. Mr. Gray said if, through the jrmation of tlie Alberta Cattle coders Association, this sky- ocketing check-off fee can be opped, it. would be worth all he work. He said the check-off is now icing levied against some cat- e up to three times before they each the slaughter house. All attle sold to slaughter from he feeder or the feedlot are subject to the check-off fee.

Eld on Woolliams, Calgary North MP and PC justice critic told The Herald Friday con- tinuing NDP support of the Lib- erals, because David Lewis is afraid of an election, will keep the government in office until mid-1974. Mr. Woolliams, during a speech later before about 100 members of the Lethbridge fed- eral Pro gressive Conservative Association, blasted the Tru- dcau government from several angles including its perform- ance on wheat sales, taxation and its budget. Freshman Lethbridge MP Ken Hurlburt also spoke at the asso- ciation's annual meeting at the Iks Hall in Fort Mocleod and said his life in Ottawa has been "new, different, exciting, frus- trating, exasperating and grat- ifying." Mr. Hurlburt apologized for not visiting throughout the con- stituency since Parliament was called but explained minority government politics meant be- ing in Ottawa early Monday morning until late Friday eve- ning every week. "Believe it or he said, "an MP's life is not altogether a happy one. "For instance, when a mem- ber stays at his desk in Ottawa, his constituents ask whatever happened to Hurlburt? Never seen him since tlie election. "And when a member comes homo they say: 'What's Hurl- in the last two years not to grow wheat helped create the present wheat shortage. He said the program was ex- plained in a veil of propoganda that there was a world surplus rather than admitting the trans- portation system and labor and management disputes in the ports had curtailed Canada's ability to deb'ver wheat commit- ments. Mr. Woolliams termed the present wheat shortage a "na- tional disaster and national dis- grace." A new constituency associa- tion executive was elected al the end of the meeting. George Dudley, a Cardston area farm- er, and longtime party worker was elected president, defcat- ng two younger candidates, radio news director Morley McGill, and Lelhbridge lu'gh school librarian, Roy Kralin. Other officers elected were vice-presidents Bob Babki of Lethbridge, John Walker, of Fort Maeleod, Earl Foxal] o! Coaldale and Morley McGill, treasurer, Gerry Offet of Leth- bridge, recording secretary Fanny Hopkins of Lelhbridge, corresponding secretary Frank Wood of Pincher Creek, and 25 regional directors.

He said tha concept of an or- ganization for cattle feeders ini- ially was considered for South- irn Alberta but that it had mushroomed across the prov- nce. A full-time employee is being planned to do the work of tlie issodalion. Finances for the association are being raised through either a flat 520 or five-cent per head voluntary fee for each animal marketed in 1D73. Associate memberships are available to cattlemen not actively feeding for slaughter. Mr. Gray stressed the grow- ing importance of the feeder in- dustry with statistics of the packing industry in Leth- bridge. He said now they re- quire animals for slaugh- ter but that they will take per week as soon as they can get them. hurt doing here? Session's still or isn't "And when he speaks up in the House, Uiey say Hurlburt turned out to be a windbag. "And when he doesn't speak the use of having a guy like Hurlburt in Ottawa? He never says anything." In a more serious vein, Mr. Hurlburt said one of his main concerns in Parliament is Bill C 123, the proposed Unemploy- ment Insurance Act amend- ment which would have cor- rected abuses of this act. "The NDP supported the Lib- erals, under Bill C 124, remov- ing the million ceiling giv- ing the government an open cheque book so the sky is the limit." He also called the old age pension raise a disgrace and told the meeting that concern- ing the death penalty, he was a retentionist, believing his first concern to ba for the society in which we live. Mr. Hurlburt added that he had the opportunity of speak- ing on his first private mem- ber motion in the house on I transportation and interproyin- cial trade and during question period had been up a number of times in regard to irrigation, grain policy, wheat and rape- seed, livestock industry and tariffs. In Mr. Woolliam's speech, he said the government's LIFT program in which western fanners were paid million the design for the 6th Ave. S. bridge to the west side in a special presentation by Stanley and Associates Engineering Ltd. at p.m. Monday be- fore the regular council meet- ing. City manager Tom Nutting said Friday the preliminary design plans, which cost 000, of which the city's share was have been re- viewed favorably by the pro- vincial highways department. The preliminary design In- cludes basic specifications of the bridge, intersections at each end and methods of get- ting into the river bottom. Mr. Nutting said the next phase is to develop detailed specifications for tendering. Preliminary construction could begin before September Mr. Nutting said. September had previously been the esti mated starting date. Estimated total cost of the bridge had been about mil lion, but now is about mil lion below that, Mr. Nutting added. The city Has approved a ?100, 000 allocation this year for the iirst stages of construction while the province share of 19" construction expenses is abou TJp for second and third reading before council Monday night is the proposed amend ment to the hours' of by-law, which would increas confectionary size from to square feet.
