Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Saturday, March 75 contract not discussed ATA subcommittee wasn't out of line An Alberta Teachers Association subcommittee did not act out of its jurisdiction when it discussed separate sfchool teachers contracts with trustees Wednesday, the president of the local ATA said Friday. The committee met with separate school trustees to discuss the feasibility of a cost of living increase for the 1974 separate school teacher contract and received a negative response. f Jerry Heck says concern Has been expressed that a Statement released after the Wednesday meeting may have Riven those who didn't attend the meeting the impression that the committee discussed the 1975 contract. Negotiations for the 1575 contract will include both the .separate school and public school boards and teachers. "Although it appeared in the statement that the Lethbridge Catholic school trustees and the ATA negotiation .subcommittee directly discussed sizeable salary increases for separate school teachers in 1975 this was not the case." Youth jailed for 8 months A Lethbridge youth who broke into a city restaurant last summer was sentenced in provincial court Friday to eight months in jail. Larry Getzlaf, 18, admitted to breaking into the Capri Restaurant last August and stealing a small amount of change. He was arrested last week. Provincial Judge A. H. El ford recommended psychiatric treatment for the vouth. "All discussions were related to the purpose of the meeting (which) was to approach and discuss with the Lethbridge separate school board the feasibility of a .salary increase in 1974." Mr. Heck says indications are that all school trustees in Alberta expect teachers will be placing "strong negotiable demands that involve good sizable salary increases for 1975 to help offset the escalating cost of living." Edmonton public school teachers were more fortunate when they requested a cost of living bonus from their school board for 1974. The 3.600 public school teachers in Edmonton were offered a 2V2 per cent per year increase or a month cost of living supplement to their wages. The bonus will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 1974 if accepted. A teacher spokesman said in Edmonton that the increase in salary will probably be accepted.

PRICED FROM Call Housewares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN The age of electronics has come to Christ-Trinity Lutheran church in Lethbridge. Earlier this year, the church received an elctronic pipe organ from Oak Brook, Illinois. It is only the second one in western Canada. The other one is in Red Deer. The first public recital with the new organ will be held Sunday. The difference between an electronic pipe and other electronic organs is similar to the difference between a one- speaker record player and a multi-channel stereo. This electronic pipe has four sets of pipes. A different type of instrumentation is projected through the 12 speakers in each set of pipes. The four instrumentations are: flute, diapason (organ reed and strings. Different sounds come from each of the 48 speakers. The bigger pipes have their own speakers which can project five different notes. The smaller pipes share one speaker between three pipes. In an ordinary electronic organ the different instrumentations are projected through one or more speakers. There is no separation of sound and the same sound comes from all speakers. The notes of an electronic pipe are produced by 85 tone generators. When the notes pass through the pipes it sounds more like a pipe organ. The electronic pipe was purchased after the old pipe organ at the church wore out. The cost of rebuilding the 54- year-old organ was about Now is flu tim to consider Air Conditioning white PRE-SEASON PRICES arc still in affect Insulted by Charlton Hill LTD. 1262-2nd Ave. S. 328-3388 twice the cost of a new electronic pipe. Rev. R. H. Martin, pastor of. Christ-Trinity, says there is a lot of sentiment attached to the old pipe organ. It was brought from the Palace Theatre in Calgary in 1954. Twelve men from the parish dismantled the organ, coded the parts, brought them to Lethbridge and assembled the organ. It was a unanimous choice to purchase the new organ and so far it has been very well received. Rev. Martin says. The recital starts at 8 p.m. at Christ-Trinity, 420 12 St. S. Wilf Woolhouse, organist at Southminster United Church will play. Official opening set for library The new Lethbridge Public Library will be officially opened next Friday by Chief Judge L. S. Turcotte of the Southern Alberta district court. The brief ceremony at p.m. will be followed by an open house lasting until 6 p.m. The library will be closed for normal business for the day so the staff can show the public the building. The new building is the third home for the library, which started in 1919 in a small room in the old YMCA Building. The first library building was built in Gait Gardens in 1922 and added to in 1951. The book stock has grown from the original to about The building is arranged in six modules on two floors. Each module is 45 feet square, giving a total area of square feet, about three times the size of ihe building in Gait Gardens.

Funds earmarked for area pheasant V habitat project v., As much as may be spent in the Lethbridge area in the first year of a pilot project in pheasant habitat restoration, the pheasant project co-ordinator said Friday. Mofley Barrett, regional wildlife biologist for Lethbridge, told the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs winter habitat was critical for pheasant populations. He said the province would explore all avenues to maintain and improve pheasant habitat areas. Lease or easement arrangements would be considered, he said. But the department preferred to work with landowners and foot the bill. City teacher gets grant A Lethbridge educationist has been awarded a graduate assistantship at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. Peter Hunt, 1514 llth Ave. S., a teacher at Catholic Central High School, will take MA studies in literature, concentrating on Anglo-Irish poetry and drama and Canadian poetry. He will also take Celtic studies at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N. S. He and his family leave for Fredericton in June. Mr. Hunt has been the author of several comments on education appearing on The Herald's page five. Vv, Dirt dike The waters of the Oldman River swirl rapidly by a peninsula of dirt at the construction site of the 6th Avenue Bridge. Construction on the million structure began last September and it is expected to be finished this fall. U of L profs, will get federal research grants Five professors at the University of Lethbridge are to receive a total of in federal research grants over the next three years, it was announced Friday. Provided by the National Research council, the grants are for the years 1974 to 1977 and have been awarded to Dr. C. O. Bender, Dr. Loren Hepler, Dr. Job Kuijt, Dr. E. B. Wagenaar, and Dr. Ian Whishaw, The grants are to be awarded in three annual disbursements and will go towards operating expenses. The researchers will hire U of L students as well as post- doctoral fellows from other universities to work on their respective projects. Dr. Bender will spend per year to study ways of causing maximum changes in molecules while expending as little energy as possible. Although the project involves mainly pure research, Dr. Bender says eventual results may give some understanding of energy-saving process in reactions of organic chemistry. A specialist in thermodynamics. Dr. Hepler is using an annual grant of S19.000 to research the chemistry of hot-water solutions. Findings from this project may have practical implications in the operation of hot water heaters, refinery furnaces and nuclear reactors, where hot water pressure is utilized and water corrosion is a constant problem. Dr. Kuijt, a biologist, will continue his study of parasitic plants, using annually to study the relationship and structures of parasitic seed plants in an attempt to discover the nature of parasites, some of which can endanger agricultural areas in many developing countries. Part of his research will be related to vegetation in Waterton National Park. Dr. Wagenaar will finance his continued study of cell- division mechanisms and evolution of wheat and oat species with his annual grant. In addition to that three-year grant, he received in capital funding from the NRC to purchase a "liquid scintillator spectrometer" which he describes as a sophisticated type of Geiger counter used to measure low- level radioactivity in cells and biological tissue. Dr. Whishaw, a psychologist, will receive annually to study motor behavior and brain function. He hopes eventually to discover what chemical systems within the brain initiate and maintain locomotive behavior. "We want to he says, "what makes one animal respond differently than another to similar stimuli within the environment."

Mr. Barrett said an- immediate start would be made on the project, with site inspections being made in the field by May. He said he hoped to have some contract work done on habitats "before the snow flies." Allan Warrack, Minister of Lands and Forests, had earlier told the group that the mild winter had hopefully led to a much lower weather mortality than usual. But this year's pheasant season would not be determined till June, he said. Dr. Warrack said pheasant habitats had been declining tor at least 15 years, and no large program had ever been organized to combat the problem. He said habitat improvement would be expanded if it was successful around Lethbridge. There were also other programs for other species, he said. The minister also said the from the Buck for Wildlife is not much when the whole province was considered, but large areas with low human populations did not need wildlife habitat improvement. The Buck for Wildlife program was established last year to direct from the price of every hunting and fishing licence in the province to habitat improvement.' Dr. Warrack announced earlier Friday that a new workshop will be built at Vulcan to serve provincial park operations in the South. The shop will be the centre of maintenance and stockroom operations in the region. It will provide six to 10 permanent jobs, and others on a seasonal basis. Construction of the Vulcan park shop is part of the government's decentral- ization program, and will also expanded parks program announced in the legislature last year.
