(403) 328-7411 FILING Lane open, shut By ANDY OGLE Herald Stnff Writer The open again ctosed- again lane between 6th and 6 A Avenue S. that has been plaguing city council for nearly a year, proved to be an open and shut case Mon- day. After brief discussion council' passed a bylaw opening the south end of the lane which had been blocked and closing its north end. The lane, which runs from 6th Ave. to 6th Ave. A S. be- tween 12th and 13th Streets and is joined in a "T" inter- section by east-west lane, has been a sore point among neighbors of the area for some time. Some wanted the lane closed arguing it was a traf- fic, noise dust and safety problem, while others claim- ed closing the lane denied them access to their ga- rages and back end of their houses. The lane was first closed last summer, re-opened by a close council vote in De- cember, then closed again. Marilyn Krammer, a res- ident of 6th Ave. A S., told council Monday closure of the lone was not justified, and there was no more traf- fic there than in many other lanes in the city. It had been suggested that rush-hour traffic in particu- lar used the lane (o get around the traffic lights at 13th Sireet and 6th Avenue if line-ups at the light were long. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff called closure of the north end of the lane a reasonable compromise and said he took some responsibility for the schmozzle that devel- oped, in a r g u i n g so ve- hemently on past occasions that the south end be closed.

Ray Clark, chairman of the Southern Alberta School Author- ities Association, told Tlie Her- ald agreement bteween rural teachers and trustees should be reached on a local basis. Mr. Clark, speaking Monday for the first time since negotia- tions first broke down March 14, denied teacher reports that an offer nt 7.5 per cent in salary increases was made Sunday for a 12-month contract. "I've never seen this seven- and-a-halE per cent they're talk- ing about. It's never been pre- sented. I don't know where they're getting this figure. It's in he said. Negotiations between teach- ers and trustees ended without settlement at 7 p.m. Sunday. No date for resumption of talks has been announced.

Willow Creek school trustees George Willis and Agnar John- son and school superintendent Dr. Alan MacLeod met with Stavely residents yesterday.

He said many areas of Wesl- rn Europe, Ireland and Brit- in can graze cattle on pasture or nine or 10 months, lowering he cost of production. The disadvantages pointed lut by Prof. Bergmann in- clude a general lack of know- low compared to that of Cana- dian producers. He said the relatively smal size ol (lie farms in France compared to ones in N o r 11 America is a hinderance (o ef ficient production, although this is changing. The last major disadvantage .o better agricultural produc lion is the high cost of land in France.

He said one of the mam awbacks to agricultural pro- ction in France has been the ct that for too long plaiuiers ve decided to keep the small rm in operation.

Tile basic idea of the EEC as to maximize the positive irts of the various countries increase the production ol le various regions. Since France is the mosl uited to agriculture, it sboulc ave a major push in produc- on for the rest of the comma ity. This shift in production from ne country to another hasn' appened as it should, said Bergmann. He said protective tariffs wil ave to continue to protect tin rotluction within the cconomii ommunity but a new bold ap roach must be taken in agri ulture.

They're backing he Clark said although he laid. Mr. did not fully support the govern- ment imposed news blackout on negotiations (lifted ic agrees statements in the media did not help bargaining. He specifically criticized the media for reporting signed statements issued by teachers and trustees March 14 in which each side blasted the other with terms such as close-minded and frivolous." One of those statements was issued to local media by Mr. Clark, personally, from his headquarters in the Holiday Inn. Reaction Reaction from parents in strike bound rural areas has been slight. Bill Schuurman, editor of The Sunny South News at CoaMale east of Lethbridge, says the strike must be settl- ed soon. Mr. Schuurman says the longer the strike lasts, the greater the chance for govern- ment intervention. "Who can blame the boards for trying lo do their job, op- erating school systems at an economic rate? Who can blame "It's not the.tnistees or teach- ers or parents who are upset about the strike, it's the chil- dren. They are the ones who are being short-changed." Bassano editor Manning also has his thoughts on the rural dispute and suggests continu- ing the school term into July to make up time lost during the strike. "Why wait until the term Is two-thirds finished before strik- ing? Surely this is a callous disregard of the educational rights of children. "Surely the trustees could have done a better job of in- forming the public of their viewpoints. "The answer now appears to be, once the strike is over, to continue the school term into July to make up for lost time in classes. The term is too short Mr. Manning says. Compromise At Brooks, editor Jim Nes- bitt urges compromise on both sides and responsible attitudes from the public. He has told readers of The Brooks Bulletin: "After the strike, we will be resuming our normal relations with the teachers. It would be unwise and disturbing to strain those relationships to the point of breaking friendships. current strike is hard on everyone. We should all do Ihe best we can to alleviate stress and bring the whole mat- ter to a reasonable and fair conclusion." At Raymond, former Social Credit MLA A. E. Hancock sug- gests (tongue-in-cheek) that teachers seek a 2 per cent de- crease in salary each year. Teacher's Association president Murray Jampolsky said today. Dr. Jampolsky, who called a special news conference to de- nounce trustees as "irrespon- sible, insulting, inexcusable and said rural teachers have the support of educators in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the Canadian Teachers' Fed- eration. He accused the Southern Al- berta School Authorities Asso- ciation of playing politics and said he has urged rural teach- ers lo instigate public pressure against trustees for a contract settlement. Dr. Jampolsky said the Al- berta government is n o t in- formed ot developments on the strike front. "The citizens of Southern Al berta have the right to why their trustees have refuse< to negotiate.
