Archeological watchdog recommended at hearing By HVDY I1AUGENEDER Herald Slaff Writer The formation of a new pro- vincial department to walcb over Alberta's archeological and historical treasures and sites was urged at a public hearing Thursday. The hearing, one of three to be conducted through the prov- ince during the next week by the Environment Conservation Authority, heard seven briefs recommend the department or urge strong protective legisla- tion. Held at the request of William Yurko, environment minister and Horst Schmid, culture, youth and recreation minister, the hearings will lead to rec- ommendations towards propos- ed fall legislation to save and preserve ancient treasures. The Public Advisory Commit- tee on the Conservation of His- torical and Archeological Re- sources, in a hearings' position paper, accepted that many sites will be destroyed due to indus- trial an dcommercial advanoe- ment. Paraphrasing the con cept that "Ihe polluter musl Alex Johnston, speaking on be- half of the group said, those organizations endangering an- cient Bites should pay towards the salvage of data and arti- facts. The question of ownership of sites and objects posed "a real he said. "Archeological ob e eta at present in the ground are not natural features of the land, but have been placed there, either accidentally or deliberately, by earlier inhabitants and are the heritage of the entire prov- ince." The brief recommended more Involvement towards the pres- ervation of objects and sites by private groups. The government will have to compensate privale or com- munity landlords or areas des- ignated as historic sites. This would compensate for maintenance, restoration and within a community, the loss ol tax revenue. Currently, this province has no effective legislation to pro- tect historic sites, he said. The minister In charge of the proposed department would de- clare any site, land, building or structure of historic or pre- historic importance a designat- ed or protected site. Only people armed wilh spe- cial permils should be able lo alter or move anything at a protected site, the brief added.

City seeks laws to protect history Legislation Is required lo em- power the provincial govern- ment to expropriate land, buildings and other features of Irisloric-archeological i m p or- tance. The City of Lethbridge said Thursday, In a brief to the En- vironment Conservalion Auth- ority public hearing dealing with the conservation of such resources in Alberta, that sim- ilar legislation exists to obtain highway rights-of-way and other public development land. Much more needs to be done lo identify, make, preserve and protect such areas, said Bill Brown on behalf of the city. An inventory of sites should be made implementing a two- phase method. He said the first phase would cover cataloguing all present sites and the second phase should involve a continued 70 teachers attend workshops Two workshops made up the annual conference of the South- western Regional of Early Childhood Education Council of the Alberta Teachers Asso- ciation, held in Lethbridge. About 70 teachers participated In either of two sessions. In one, Carol Chapman, psycholo- gist, with Lethbridge schools, dealt with visual perception dif- ficulties in children. In the other, Dr. Bruce Harri- son, professor of education, uni- versity of Calgary, held a math activities workshop- A new executive was elected at the conference: Ms. Anna Gangur, president, Ms. Jean Paskusi, president elect, Wilf Lencucha, past president, Ms. Vi Fishboume, secretary, Ms. Lorene Harrison, treasurer, Ms. Jerri Bolton, Ms. .lean RiRaux, Vs.

'It is of utmost Importance that an extensive evaluation be done in all areas to Identity historical and potentially his- torically Important buildings." Artifact scavengers are cur- rently picking sites clean and "are a constant source of con- cern to those who see sights destroyed and history lost through commercial exploita- tion and reckless disregard for acceptable procedures and re- cording methods." The city brief said: "The trl- level form of government in Canada makes It difficult to propose a definite level at which legislation should be es- tablished. This could be dons through i federal-provincial cost-sharing arrangement which could re- sult in provincial departments and legislation to protect and restore historical materials and areas arid expand public ac- ceptance of the need for such protection, he said. "Lack of a co-ordinated fed- i eral-provinclal approach may I lead to delays in protecting sites." Quick action Is necessary nl times where new finds occur j during various "construction or I development operations and this ability to react quickly must be part of the administra- tive structure developed from the brief said.

Signy confusion A road sign at 6th Ave. and 13th St. S. appears to be giv- ing some motorists trouble. The sign, facing west on 6th Ave., is what the local traffic engineer calls a "permissive type sign" which tells the mo- torist what he can do. Tlu's one, with arrows point- ing straight ahead and to the right, tells the motorist that is all he can do going east on 6tb Ave. at 13lh St. from 4 to 6 p.m. weekdays. It means no left turn from 6th Ave. during these hours. A number of tickets have given recently for turning left at the intersection during rush horn-- Left-turning motor- ists who must wait for west- bound traffic to clear, hold up the through east-bound traffic.

Finlay Photo Local youths seek STEP jobs More than 150 local young people have applied for the eight jobs offered under the local Student Temporary Em- ployment Program. The application deadline came Wednesday. The eight students will be lured by Monday, Bob Bartlett, community services director said. The provincial government provided funds for the local program to hire eight studcnls. The community services de- partment had applied for funds to hire 20. Mr. Barllctt said the number was cut because (he federal government had already provided a substantial number of grants for Opporlunilies for Youth projects in southern Al- berta. Four project will be con- ducted under STEP. Two students will survey the golfing needs in the cily by de- termining the number of golf- ers, the number within each age range and the number of courses in the city and sur- rounding district. The study will be done by questionnaire. The samo two students will also work in the museum cat- aloguing arlifacls. A third project will involve students in a survey of local resources, such as recreation and social programs. Mr. Bart- lelt said the survey will be an updating of the old Advice, In- formation and Direction (AID) program which could lead to the establishment of a city infor- mation service. Probably the main project is the planning and development of horse trails around the city- Four students will plot a likely roule for horse trails to run from Ihe soulh part of the city to the north end, along Scenic Drive and through the coulees. The trails could be marked this summer, Mr. Bartlett said. The city has budgeted [or any materials required by Ihe various projects, although the actual amount will probably be considerably less than that figure, Mr. Barllclt said. The city itself has hired about JOO university nnd college students for casual labor this summer. Those students are not part of STEP. They work in parka and recreation and public works areas.
