14 THt IITHMIDOE HIKAID Salurdoy, Worth M, 1973 Sykes seeks council support of 20 mph limit Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes is requesting Lethbridge city" council's support of a proposal which would give Alberta muni- cipalities the authority' to set 20 mile per hour speed restric- tions in residential areas. In a letter to council on the agenda for Monday's meeting. Mayor Sykes refers to the ef- forts Calgary has made in past 'Indians indecisive on education' Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Alberta In- dians haven't yet made up their minds about more Indian con- tent in education, Lou Hynd- man, the minister of education, told the legislature Friday. Ralph Sorenson (SC Sedge- wick-Conmation) asked if the province has asked the federal government "to have schools lo- cated on Indian reserves oper- ated and staffed by trained In- dians with curriculum that em- phasizes Indian history and Mr. Hyndman said no, "be- cause we haven't been able to assess the unanimity, or other- wise, of the Indian people them- selves." If the Indians ask for provin- cial government support, the minister said "We'd be happy to follow up." Grant Notley (NDP Spirit Hiver-Fairvlew) asked if the views of the Indian Association of Alberta have been sought. Not on this issue, said Mr, Hyndman, tart the association was asked if it would favor rep- resentation on school boards off reserves where 34 of the In dian students in Alberta attend school. "The letter I received from the association just yesterday indicated that they had not ye decided what course they woiilc like to follow and requested the government not to put in any legislation years lo impose the restric- tions in that city and the ob- stacles placed on the plan by the province. The highways department, the letter states, has not said no to the plan but has pointed out that any municipality can control speed limits within its boundaries as long as those limits are posted. For Calgary to adopt the 20 mile per hour limit, signs would have to be erected in each residential block at Initial cost of with an annual cost of for up- keep. Mayor Sykes suggests the lighways department amend the Highway Traffic Act lo allow cities to lower the speed imit and post only those streets vhich are the exception. Calgary is seeking the res- rictions, Mayor Sykes says in lis letter, "lo reduce the speec at which traffic travels through purely residential streets where :hildren play and'at the same ime lo make it less attractive 'or traffic short-cutting through he residential neighborhoods in order to avoid congested inter sections on major thorough fares." Another traffic matter will be brought before counci by represnetatives of the Fleetwood Bawden Home and School Association. Because 49 children who at tend Fleetwood Bawden ele mentary school at 12th St. 9th Ave. S. must cross 6tV Ave. S. at 12th St., parent are requesting the installation of a flashing amber light the 6th Ave. intersection.

Kuchinski, traffic plan- ning engineer in the depart- ment, giving the reasons .'or the decision against a crosswalk. Mr. Kuchinski wrote to the Municipal District of Talrer ex- plaining: "This department is very Itesitant to erect school cross- walks on highways unless school crossing guard or school >ol is used to regulate and control pedestrian traffic. "Where there are no cross- walk signs or other devices, children will usually use cau- tion in crossing' a highway "However, if crosswalk signs are established, younger chil- .he signs to aulomatically give them the right-of-way over on- coming traffic and attempt to cross when unsafe. "The signs alone can create a false sense of security in ths minds of young children mak- ing conditions worse than they are now." The engineer wrote that un- less there is a responsible adult or older child to conlrol the crosswalk traffic during school hears the crosswalk will not te marked.
