"Negotiations are constant, persistent and serious. I am hopeful some movement has been made on both sides," Dr. Hohol said. Informal talks between teachers and trustees were held at the Lethbridge Holiday Inn late this week, under the direction ef Bob D'Esterre, Industrial Relations Board chairman, and his assistants Neil Graham and John Hutton. The walkout, which began March 12, has so far cost the Alberta Teachers' Ass ociation $450,000 in strike pay alone. Three rural meetings held Thursday to discuss school closures failed to attract a significant number of ratepayers at Pincher Creek, Coaldale and Picture Butte. About 27,000 students in 18 country school districts have been forced out of regular classes because of the strike. At Picture Butte, local teacher Don Beckland told about 100 town residents agreement between striking teachers and trustees appears impossible. "Students will suffer more loss in education than what we are losing in pay," he said. Mr. Beckland said some students could be held back six months because of the strike. Education Minister Lou Hyndman told the Legislature this week no rural student will lose credits because of the teacher dispute. No resolutions were approved at the Picture Butte meeting, organized by local ATA members. Questions from the audience for trustee comment on the issues failed to draw any response. About 175 ratepayers at Pincher Creek suggested a law Euit be launched against both the ATA and the Southern Alberta School'Authorities Association.

'This strike has been anticipated ' from annual meetings during the past three years. Why, when teachers knew there was a strike coming, didn't they move out, of here?" were typical comments. Again, no resolutions aimed at ending the dispute were passed at Pincher Creek. A meeting at Coaldale organized and chaired by teachers attracted about 150 persons Thursday. No proposals were approved at ending the three-week strike and the two trustees attending the public sitting made no comment during the meeting. Municipal grant formula will stand Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell cast himself in the role of the benevolent godfather Thursday but refused - an opposition request to table the formula on which municipal assistance grants are based this year. He admitted to NDP leader Grant Notley that the final authority for how much the municipalities receive from the province will be a "subjective" decision. '. . . It's going to be pretty hard in this first year to see just what the municipalities might come up with ... but I think the municipalities should take heart in the fact that I'm pretty broadminded and fair," declared Mr. Russell. George Ho Lem (SC - Calgary McCall) pushed Mr. Russell into admitting that a "mistake" had been made in the grant to Camrose and was subsequently corrected. Mr. Russell also conceded that he would be "very surprised" but that a municipal budget would increase by up to 22.5 per cent in one year and still qualify for an incentive grant - despite an earlier claim that the grants were only to municipalities keeping their annual, increase within 7*4 per cent. This piece of budgetary wizardry could be accomplished by averaging the IVz per cent increase over three years- and holding the increase down in the subsequent two years. E. S. P.

At a news conference Thursday, city hall and Alberta Housing Corporation officials said all the people living in about 30 houses in the area, mostly on both sides of 5th Ave. between 2nd and 4th St., would be contacted in the survey. It will be carried out by the AHC April 11-19 with individual interviews on the weekend of April 13-15. At the moment officials don't even know how many people are living in the houses, because many have rented suites and rooms and because of the transient nature of some of the tenants of the area. "The purpose of the survey is to find out who is in there, their age and income range, what they would like in a home, and how they would like us to help them," said Martin Thomas, senior development officer with the AHC. "It may be that some of them will require no assistance at all, but we want them all to know that we will help them solve their future housing problems if they have any." Mr. Thomas said alternative housing arrangements could include low-cost public housing, the city's proposed senior citizen development and home loan programs. Following the survey, the AHC will make recommendations to city council on how it feels the housing requirements of the dislocated people should be provided. These could include offering public housing or senior citizen U of new Gov't favors joint use of Sportsplex BILL GROENEN photo Campaign continues . . . Hamilton poster super-imposed over the school No-smoke pact lauded Letters are pouring in from Regina, Edmonton, and Calgary congratulating Hamilton Junior High School. Thursday, the students and staff of the school completed the seventh school day of their mutual quit-smoking agreement last week. "I didn't think we could make it last this long," said Pat Firth, one of six Hamilton students who faced expulsion for smoking on the school grounds prior to the quit-smoking agreement. School Board handbook regulations call for a penalty of expulsion if any student is caught smoking on the school grounds. Pat claimed expulsion wouldn't have had the same effect on him as has the agreement. "I am giving some thought to quitting smoking completely," he said. Grade 9 student Amy Day said, "You have to make a AKROYD'S PLUMBING, HEATING AND GASFITTING 24-HOUR SERVICE WORK New Inttallations Phone 328-2106 promise to yourself to quit. It doesn't work to promise someone else. That's what we did last week - we promised ourselves to quit." Neither student nor staff have broken the agreement by smoking on the school grounds. Some of the heavier smokers use the lunch break to go home or some place off the school grounds for a smoke. "I found it to be quite a strain at first but it doesn't bother me much now," said Richard MacDonald of the Hamilton teaching staff. Mr. MacDonald said under the present agreement he smokes seven fewer cigarettes per day. About half the students who smoked prior to the agreement have now quit smoking. When asked why they smoke students had a variety of answers. One said he didn't believe it was addictive and didn't know why he hadn't quit earlier. Another claimed smoking at home "turned her on" while in school she used it as a method to meet kids. The "If I quit - will you quit" technique used by Ken-drick Smith, school principal, to encourage the students to stop smoking on the school grounds is now spreading into the home. "Kids are bugging their parents about entering into a mutual quit-smoking in the home agreement," said Amy Day. Three years ago Hamilton Junior High had the worst reputation of schools in Lethbridge. Grade 9 student Stan Cohen says the school has been grad ually getting rid of the bad reputation over the past three years. . "Because of Mr. Smith," he said, "We're now one big happy family. He's just like father to us." Mr. Smith said he is very pleased with the way the students are conducting themselves in honoring the quit-smoking agreement. "The behavior in this school is as good now as it was when I was in school in the thirties,'' he said.

Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster - Replying to a query from John Anderson (SC - Lethbridge East) - said the provincial government favors "joint use" of the proposed Sportsplex to be built "to the tune of $3 million." Negotiations are under way between the city, the college and "perhaps the university'" for use of the proposed build ing. At one time, said Mr. Foster, the college desired to be part owner of the Sporsplex, but the provincial government favored renting. "I am under the impression that the facility as proposed by the city is adequate to meet the requirements of the college," he said. "We will do everything we can to ensure that the college gain access on a long-term basis and that their interests are protected." AIR CONDITION NOW with the ROUND ONE ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD.

"We don't want anyone coming to city hall at the last minute screaming they are being kicked out," he said. Deputy Mayor Barnes added that the redevelopment project involving Woodward Stores Ltd. and the provincial government is on schedule, with only five properties remaining to be acquired by the city. All the land is to be vacated by Nov. 15. L asks complex A proposed theatre-auditorium complex for the University of Lethbridge has been passed on to the department of advanced education by the universities commission. II, G. Thomson, chairman of the commission, which ceases functioning this weekend, said today a letter from the commission describing the $1,255, 000 project and saying it should be considered will be in the hands of the department next week. The project, which the U of L says is designed to serve the needs of the Southern Alberta public as well as the university would create a theatre-auditorium with seating for 350-400 people, in a pie-shaped structure as part of the circular "University Centre" outlined in the university's original master plan. The complex would house dramatic and musical presentations as well as a variety of educational programs and general interest lectures. At pres eat the U of L has no theatre or lecture space which can seat more than 125 people. It would be centrally located on campus southeast of the physical education complex by the existing pedestrian tunnel. Bob Jones, capital development officer with the universities commission, said it was felt the complex was a good idea but its timing was something else - due to the current enrolment picture. The U of L's enrolment projection for next, term is 1,100 students, about the same level as this year. "They put forward a good strong case and I'm sure they'll get it some time, said Mr. Joues. The U of L proposed to use funds from the three universities funds, which together with a matching government grant amounts to $800,000 for the project. Estimated costs of $1,255,000 are based on a spring 1974 construction start arid don't include consultant fees of $125,000.
