The two city boards were an- ticipating deficits in their 1970- 1971 operations until the n departmental order, and spo- kesmen for both boards said the additional money will ease them through the .year.

"We can sure use com- mented public schools superin- tendent Dr. 0. P. Larson. "The government had told us almost to the dollar how much money we'd have this year, and we've now needed more staff than we'd been allowed under their recommended formula." He said the public board did not want to use the flexibility factor allowed by the govern- ment that would permit a high supplementary requisition this year at the expense of an ex- tra low one next year, because more money will be needed for 1971-1972, not less. "Things are tough enough this he said. "They weren't letting us take advantage of the reassessed property values in Lethbridge under the old said Bert Reilander, secretary treasurer of the separate school board. "Now they're going to let us, because the higher assessment is based on our growing econ- omy. The option is given to us to follow the first formula in our calculations (which would leave things as they are now) or recalculate on the basis of a broader assessment base. He said whichever method is used will lock-in the level of taxation on which school dis- trict incomes will be based for the next three years, in- creasing only six per cent per year on that figure. "If vve didn't take advantage of the department's latest changes now, we could never take advantage of Mr. Reilander said. He added tne separate school board's budget for 1970-1971 showed a projected defi- cit, wlu'ch can now be balanced through an increased .taxation the new system will help in the next three years as well.

The city's 20 electrical work- ers are slated to go on strike at neon Monday. T hey have asked for a 25 per cent wage increase that would give journeymen line- men an hour, but the city refused to grant such an in- crease. The city, in its injunction re- quest, said picket lines could cut access to power, sewage and water treatment plants serving the city if members of other unions refused to cross. It asked pickets be disallow- ed near such plants and re- quested picket lines be limited to 50 feet at parks, city gar- ages, the public works depot, city hall and ether civic opera- tions. The union said the applica- tion was premature as a strike had not started and no illegal action had taken place. Up to this morning no moves Nad been made for further me- diation talks.
