The subject was only briefly touched Tuesday, when council completed its Monday agenda. The administration was in- structed to present a report on the present financial picture for the city and projections re- garding future capital project needs at the special session. Council will meet in commit- tee of the whole to come up with recommendations to pre- sent at the regular council meeting May 23. Alderman Vaughan Hem- City buys insurance The city has taken out insur- ance policies for the next three years which will cost about City council Monday filed a report from the city manager outlining the coverage and also indicating settlement is near on the claims from the Lcth- bridge Arena fire. The primary insurer, Great American Insurance, tes agreed lo a basis for settle- ment. Of the claimed, remains lo be paid to the city to cover the fire loss from the arena fire in March, 1971. The entire amount from the insurance claim will go toward construction of a new arena. Most of the insurance on the city's properties for the next three years will be handled by Heed Shaw Osier of Edmonton. The coverage includes: per year for fire insurance on buildings, contents and machin- ery for unlicenced equipment; general liabil- ity; for boiler and ma- chinery, and for 9th St. Bridge" Liability. Ringland Meredith Ltd. of Lethbridge lias the automobile fleet policy for per year. broff urged local residents to talk to the council members within the next week and give their impressions of the arena proposals. The feasibility study submit- ted to council Monday proposed a million, multi- purpose arena be constructed it Scenic Drive and 28th St. S. A motion thanking the arena development committee mem- bers for the time they put into co-ordinating efforts toward the development of a new arena was passed by council. Friendship Centre costs asked The Southern Alberta Native Friendship Society has been asked by city council to pre- sent a written brief itemizing the costs involved in running the Friendship Centre for the next two months. Representatives of the soci- ety approached council Monday requesting an interim grant of 000 to cover operating costs for the centre until the senior governments provide the funds. During Tuesday's meeting, council was unwlling to tiake any action on the matter until the society presents a written request for the grant. There was also an indication the money would be given the society in the form of a loan and not a grant. On other business, council ap- proved a resolution to invite tenders for the demolition of the old Central School. The school has not been used since late April when the youth drop-in centre program there was discontinued. The demolition of the building will make way for the proposed new library to be built on the site. There is no further word on when that facility mil be constructed. Teacher contracts Public schools may start talks By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer The Let lib ridge public school board has moved anoth- er step closer to severing its of- ficial relationship with the Leth- bridge-Medicine Hat School Au- thorities Association and the fi- nal withdrawal could be com- pleted within the next two weeks. This would pave the way for an immediate start on new con- tract talks with public school teachers. A three-member committee of the board plans to meet with executives of the teachers' union in the next few days to "formulate the guidelines which will be a basis for the negotia- tions." The committee will consist of Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten- dent of public schools; Carl Johnson, board chairman; and Dorothy Beckcl, public school trustee.

"There's 20 different jobs for somebody who is eager, reli- able and willing to work. You just have to get out and look- tor them." "Too many kids put their names in here at Manpower and then sit at home and wait lor the phone to ring. That's ignor- ant. "Sure, we're here to assist, but they should be out there getting 'the news, knocking on ioors and listening to friends. "A lot of times it's luck when i job shows up, but more often t's because you worked to find it. "Canada Manpower is a fan- tastic deal, it's a real conveni- ence, but people shouldn't rely solely on it. We have on file only' about 30 per cent of the jobs that are actually avail- able."

"Although it makes for a lot f inconvenience, there's no vay of changing the fact that he best-paying jobs are out of own in the district areas." Rezoning bylaw defeated A abylaw to rezone the York Hotel property to allow for re- tail, office, service and hotel and licensed premises use was defeated by city council Tues- day. The rezoning was requested by the owners of the York Hotel to facilitate improvements to the building. According to the 1968 Zoning Bylaw, the hotel _is non-conforming, being in exis- tence as such before the bylaw was passed. It is allowed to re- main as a non-conforming building but with the stipula- tion that no additions be built. Council was not opposed to the improvements to the hotel but defeated the rezoning by- law because of future consider- ations on the widening of 13th St. N. As the hotel sits, it is loo close to Uie road to allow for widening of 13th St. at that lo- cation. Council accepted the ing its Tuesday night regular meeting, unanimously approved the proposal which will sec stu- dents involved in work pro- grams both inside and outside the school. The program will involve stu- dents at the Grade 12 level and will see them assume real job situations at various busi- nesses in Lethbridge. It is ex- pected that a maximum of 24 students will be involved in the program at the beginning. They will be paid at the rate of SI an hour. "This proposal is an excellent format and it should be of great T e a c h e r's Association would have to approve the teachers' pail of the move. The Herald has learned from reliable sources that this per- mission has already been grant- ed verbally, and it is now just a marier of getting it in writ- ling. It has also been learned that the man most likely to be named to head the local teach- ers' bargaining committee is Joe Lakie, principal of Fleet- wood-Bawden Elementary School. One hurdle which will have to be cleared before the talks be- gin is to decide what will and will not be negotiated. The board is opposed to ne- gotiating working conditions, prefering instead to leave this area in the hands of a co-or- dinating committee comprising teachers and administrators. The city teachers themselves support this view. If the public board does de- cide to bargain locally, there could be a split in the teacher negotiations, in that separata school teachers in the city would still have to negotiate with the two-city school au- thorities association. To date, the separate board has indicated it prefers to stick by its guns of unity rather than go it alone in the upcoming talks. Last year was the first time the four school boards in the who Bob benefit to the youngsters participate in said Gall, director of school vices. Dr. George Bevan, director ot curriculum, said the project provides the students with an opportunity "for them lo find out what the realities are. They might as well be aware of them." He said it will enable stU- dents to see that things which are done Li schools are done for a reason and this will help them to see the reasoning which they may have misunderstood. Trustee Beg Turner express- ed concern that such programs may be an indication of high schools trying to prepare peo- ple for working instead of liv cities banded together to bargain a contract with their teachers, and the system was jlamed by both sides for the engthy negotiations and near- strike situation. If the public board follows through with the move toward abandoning I h e association, contract talks with public school teachers could be under way within a month. The current agreement ex- pires at the end ot this year INCREASE Instructional days in Loth- iridge separate schools will in- crease from 182.6 last year to 192.7 this year. planning department's advice that expansion of the hotel now might make the cost of acquir- ing land alongside the hotel for widening the street much greater in the future. The cost of reconstructing the York Hotel to accommodate widening of 13th St. is es- timated at Council also accepted a city manager recommendation that the street-widening program be continued on the west side of 13th St. N. and that parking be banned on the street as re- quired. One qualification of that action is to acquire land for off-street parking to accom- modate patrons of the 13th St. businesses. 'The function of a public school is to educate for living, not he said. Mr. Turner added that he was not criticizing the planned program at LCI. 'But, I don't Hunk we should ever be pushed into being oriented towards vocational education. "I don't think this program gives any indication this is what will happen. I think it is a good one for the students." assa CUFF BLACK, Certified Dentol Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
