Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, March 11, 1974 Tourist facility owners adopt wait-and-see attitude Most Lethbridge hotel, motel and restaurant owners are not planning any additions to their staffs this summer although an increase in tourists is generally expected. A survey of major hotels, motels and restaurants in Lethbridge shows most of them will wait and see if the increase in tourists materializes. If it does, then they will hire additional staff. Werner Benzer. manager of the Holiday Inn says he's not counting on an increase of tourists this year. If there is an increase he can hire staff on very short notice to handle it. Al Hober, manager of the El Rancho Motor Hotel, and John Wichers, manager of Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant, say they aren't concerned about this summer they're concerned about right now. "I can't even get staff now. I have five vacancies now I can't Mr. Hober says. Mr. Wichers says he's always short of "staff. Keith Leslie, manager of Phil's Restaurant and Pancake House, says he is anticipating an influx of tourists and will hire eight to 10 more to its staff of 20 to 25. Most of the employers The Herald spoke to said they will be hiring some students this summer. Dan Royer of the Park Plaza said he usually hires about six students to take the place of staff going on holiday. Frank Smith, executive vice president of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, says there will be an additional travel information center in Southern Alberta which should result in five or six new jobs for students this summer. Mr. Smith expects the tourist increase to materialize but feels revenue from them will go down from last year. This is because there will be fewer Americans travelling to the province and more Canadians, he explains. Americans spend more money than Canadians and because there will be less of them it will result in a 10 per cent decrease in tourist revenue for the province, he claims. John Rhodes, manager of the AMA, says the organizers of the World's Fair to be held this year in Spokane, Wash., are advertising a Canadian route to potential fair goers from the Eastern States. People travelling to Spokane from the east that come through Canada will not experience any troubles getting gas, Spokane organizers are saying. This should result in an increase of tourists, Mr. Rhodes says. However, there will be very few Americans from the Southern States journeying to Canada. There is extreme gas shortages in some of the Southern States such as Florida, he says. There is a 1500 fine in the state for anybody caught getting gas when they already have half a tank or more. Of 270 gas stations polled in Florida, 64 were open Monday to Friday after 7 p.m., 44 were open Saturday after 7 p.m., 20 were open Sundays, 82 were limiting purchases and 44 were out of fuel. Gov't to assist in wild oats plan At least will be spent this year by the Alberta government to fight wild oats on provincial farms. Agriculture minister Hugh Horner announced today plans to support local governments throughout the province and to pay for informational meetings and seminars to increase public awareness and knowledge of the weed. Blair Shaw of Lethbridge, regional plant industry supervisor for Southern Alberta, said this morning the government thrust is aimed at encouraging cultural and chemical control of wild oats. Through the program this year, additional fieldmen will be hired to help farmers. Demonstrations will be held throughout Alberta to show farmers methods of controlling wild oats. Co-operative seed cleaning plants will receive money to upgrade seed cleaning equip- ment to minimize wild oat seeds. A provincial weed tour will also be sponsored by the program. This year the three- day tour will be held in Southern Alberta starting July 3 in Fort Macleod. Mr. Shaw said the program is based on requests from the local agricultural services board in municipal districts and counties. Grain train loaded Loading operations started at 8 a.m. today at the Canadian government elevator in Lethbridge for the second unit grain train that will haul bushels of wheat to Vancouver. The first train left Lethbridge last Tuesday and was unloaded in Vancouver Thursday. It arrived back in Lethbridge Sunday. Jack Waterhouse, superintendent of the elevator, said today the second train is scheduled to leave Lethbridge at 4 p.m. Tuesday to repeat the first cycle. He said it is lucky the grain train can be recycled every seven days because the elevator is operating at near capacity. 1847 ROGERS BROS.

Major boy events of the past year, noted in regional commissioner Ray Edward's report delivered to the meeting include 400 boys and leaders at a week-long jamborette and more than 600 boys participating in an ice chuckwagon rodeo. Too few native people are aware of their rights within the law, and there is not enough communication between Indians and the agencies that can help them, says a counsellor with the Native Counselling Services of Alberta. Rose Yellowfeet said these were the reasons for holding a workshop on Indians and the law this weekend at the Mar- quis Hotel. The workshop dealt with a variety of subjects concerned with laws and rights. There is no communication among organizations trying to find answers to problems natives are facing, she said. One of the problems is the difference between life on and off the reserve, she said. "I know two ways of living and they're as different as night and she said. "I know that if I go to the reserve I don't need any money. I will always be sure of a meal if I need it and a place to sleep. The natives freely share their homes with each other. "But when I come off the reserve into town, I need money. I have to find a job, a place to live." The workshop began Friday evening with Provincial Judge George Lynch-Staunton explaining court functions and procedures. Roy Fox, newly appointed court counsellor for the NCSA, explained his role in helping natives who are brought to court. Staff Sgt: John Clark of the RCMP and Sgt. Doug Harris of the Lethbridge city police Started off Saturday morning's session. They explained police work as it pertained to native people. Parole is available to native inmates, even more easily than white inmates, said Grant B. Spiro of Calgary, district representative of the National Parole Service. Mr. Spiro said the parole service is more lenient with reserve Indians who apply for parole than with white inmates because the background situation is taken into consideration. But the conditions of parole constant supervision, ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg 222 5th Si S Phone 328-4095 FOX DENTURE CLINK PHONE 327-CSU C. 9. f- FOX, CAM. 204 MEDICAL DENTAL BLDQ.

Since the parole service started using native counsellors, the success rate has been higher, he said. White counsellors were unable to work successfully to any degree with natives. The workshop concluded Sunday with a discussion on human rights in Lethbridge.
