C8324 VICTORIA (CP) -Premier Dave Barrett put the legislature on a forced march Monday night to catch up on delayed business, giving notice that starting today sittings will be held mornings, afternoons and evenings. Members of the legislature will be expected to appear in the house at 10 a.m., "bright and Mr. Barrett told think it'll be a great treat." Usually, sittings commence at 2 p.m., run to 6 p.m. and adjourn for supper. MLAS return at 8 or p.m., though night sittings aren't scheduled every day. The premier said MLAS shouldn't be upset at having to start work at mid-morning. "I know a lot of people who come to work at eight o'clock. A lot of people in this province work all day." Mr. Barrett did the same thing a year ago, when a filibuster on the Land Commission Act put the legislature more than a week behind in aiming for an Easter adjounrment date. MLAS sat from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and p.m. to 11 p.m. or midnight. Although the premier said the reason for the extended hours was that "we've got a great deal of government business to get on opposition MLAS said the premier wanted the legislative session all locked up so he can leave for a scheduled business-pleasure trip to Japan on April 13, just 13 sitting days away. "Is the real reason the anxiety of the premier to get this session over to play his rugby game in asked James Chabot (SC Columbia River) in the legislature. Mr. Barrett is to play twice with Vancouver Oldstylers Rugby Club who head to Japan on a five-game tour at Easter. TThe Social Crediter said the government is attempting to "grind the opposition into the and claimed the needs of opposition MLAS' constituents will be suffering because members will be in the house all day and evening. "They want to whip fhe opposition into line." Mr. Chabot said the premier has lost control of the house and the whips system, by which orderly debate and passage of spending estimates and bills is arranged among parties, has broken down. The house adjourned Monday night, amid jokes that MLAS will now have to rise from their beds before lunclu and taunts from government members who remembered sitting until dawn some nights under Social Credit. Recreation budget nixed COALDALE (HNS) -Town council Monday night refused to accept the proposed 1974 budget of the south Oldman River recreation board until certain expenditures of last year are fully explained. Last year the recreation board spent Mayor A. F. Blakie and councillors Abe Ens and William Martin will meet with recreation officials to clarify last year's expenses. Council granted to the Coaldale Community Band to attend the Kinsmen's International Band Festival at Moose Jaw May -16 to 19. BICYCLE SALES BOOM NEW YORK (AP) The bi- cycle boom has proved a mixed blessing for the eight United States companies that make bicycles, Fortune magazine reports. They failed to anticipate demand, partly for lack of adequate market research, and so they were ill- prepared to take advantage of it, says the magazine. Also, their production capacity was much too small and their product mix, mainly bicycles for children, was wrong. Anne Murray wins Juno award for fourth time A Sweater Jacket!

TORONTO (CP) Canada paid tribute to its stars Monday in a ceremony that has come to represent a milestone in the lives of many Canadian singers, songwriters and musicians. Among those honored before a crowd of at the fifth Juno awards was a selection of both" established and fast-rising Canadian entertainers. Anne Murray was awarded the Juno as Canada's woman vocalist of the year, her fourth successive win in the category, and Terry Jacks, who enjoyed a long spell at the top of the hit parade with Seasons in the Sun, won the Canadian male vocalist award. A surprise among the 25 awards presented was the ousting of Gordon Lightfoot and Bruce Cockburn from the Canadian folksinger section. This time. Valdy, a one-time farmer from British Columbia whose popularity as a singer spread rapidly during 1973, won the honor. Another popular Canadian folksinger. Murray McLaughlan. was awarded two Junos for his hit tune The Farmer Song, one as best folk single and another as best country music single. Canadian group of the year was the Toronto band Light-. house. The award for the out- standing new group of the year went to Bachman-Turner Overdrive, a band which rode the charts for manv weeks in 1973 with Blue Collar. STOMPHV TOM WINS In the country music section. Stompin' Tom Connors was awarded a Juno as best country male vocalist and Shirley Eikhard took the women's country vocalist honor. Country group of the year was the Mercey Broth- ers. Among awards presented to the record industries. Warner- Elektra-Asylum was named record company of the year. The best album award went to Bachrrian Turner-Overdrive for B.T.O while the final award, for best Canadian composer, was presented to Murray McLaughlan. The hour ceremony was opened by Wall Grealis, pub- lisher of the music publication, RPM, and co- founder of the Junos RPM conducts polls among its readers to select the Juno winners. "When the Junos Grealis said, "we were attempting to mould a star system in a country that lacked stars. Now we have stars and a star system to support it." Regional library recommended GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) "One of the richest of the Canadian provinces, Alberta, is nevertheless relatively poor in terms of library an Alberta library study group was told Monday. Jack Mounce, a librarian at Red Deer College, made the comment in a brief to an Edmonton research firm which is conducting the study for the provincial government. "There is every indication that the federal and provincial governments are aware of the necessity for designing and implementing a modern structure for the storage, retrieval and transfer of information." said Mr. Mounce. But. aside from the current study, there is little evidence the provincial government is determined to improve the existing dearth of library facilities, he said. There was little demand for good libraries outside Calgary and Edmonton and people have no way of knowing what they are missing, concluded Mr. Mounce. His brief and three others, from the local library board, the Grande Prairie Inter- Library Council and the Library Association of Alberta, said the province should increase its grants to libraries. Municipalities should not be completely responsible for providing adequate library services, they said. Initiative grants should be available to offset the costs of special projects and develop existing facilities. A regional library system was recommended to provide a central book pool with a larger selection of books than any one library- could maintain. The study group will hold hearings in Lethbridge on Wednesday, in Calgary on Thursday and Edmonton on Friday. Police have quiet Monday No news is good news in the police business. Lethbridge city police enjoyed an unusually quiet day Monday with only one minor traffic accident in 24 hours. They handled only 13 calls and complaints in "that period. A normal day for the city police means 50 or 60 complaints with 15 or 20 traffic accidents, especially when streets are a bit icy "1 hope this keeps op." said Staff Insp. Max Coupland wistfully. 20 students to graduate in agriculture Agriculture students at the Lethbridge Community College conclude their spring semester studies Friday and for the first time there will be a female student in the graduating class. After Elizabeth Browne of Glencoe. Ont. receives her LOC diploma, she plans to work as an agriculture technician in Alberta. LOC expects 20 students will successfully complete the two-year agriculture program. Upon completing examinations this week, most graduates of the program will return to their farms and ranches while a few of them will work as agriculture iechnicians or engage in agri- business. The agriculture mechanics program concludes Apni 12.
