Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 30, 1970 t if f Vou 1 AskM e. by RON WATMOUGH CANADA Week for a united Canada bugs me! So who's divided? The appeal this week by the Montreal-based Can- ada week committee (23 persons from is an unhealthy squawk. The endorsement by the Prime Minister and the premier of each province doesn't mellow the note. There are two ways society splits. In one case, each group veers away from the common course. The other way has one group moving off course, while the other group remains the same. In what is termed a "divided" Canada, the sec- ond way pertains. A minority group moved off, declared itself sep- arate. That's fine and democratic. The rub comes when the withdrawn group turns to the majority group and blames it for the split, saying: "You are different. You are not with us. You are holding Can- ada divided." No way! If one of two Liberal neighbors turns Conserva- tive, he has no right to declare to his friend, "You are not with me. Its 'your fault we are apart. You should feel obliged to join with rne to heal the schism." Surely the Western Canada group is not to be con- sidered divided against the rest of the country be- cause of the separate posture of Quebec. It's like taking the first piece of pie then blaming the pie for being incomplete. It's like the crook suggesting the gap between himself and the law would be best bridged by the law conforming to his plane. It's like saying those who are not for us, are against us allowing no real neutrality. I know there are problems with unity in Canada. But I resent the tone of an appeal which suggests the entire army is out of step when one soldier with two left feet bumbles along.

SAM Government Visits School Board Lakeview Elementary students the government o the Province of SAM visitec he Lethbridge public schoo board Tuesday to present th annual report for their prov nce's operations.

He t o 1 d the students the would likely be Alberta's futur politicians and school boar nembers, "and I hope you'll be a bit more knowledgeable than our present politicians." SAM Premier Lorenz Boh nert introduced each studen m the class, and1 the students presented copies of SAM's an nual report to the individua members of the board. Regular visitors to the ward's meetings including the Alberta Teachers' Association he Lethbridge Home aro School Council and news me- dia representatives also re- ceived the reports.

In other business, the boan approved a request from the and District Histo- ical Society asking for the cupola and bell from the Cen tral School, the oldest school in ie city.

The board approved payment of a 10-cent per student levy to the Southern Alberta Educa- tional Television Association, which comprises most school districts hi southern Alberta. The public board's share of SAETVA's 1970 expenses, most- ly for the association's secre- tary E. C. Miller's salary, will be about Trustees also reappointed Doug Card as their representa- tive on the association. A request from Dr. Doug Petherbridge, associate profes- sor of education at the Univer- sity of Lethbridge, and Elma Groves', principal of Lakeview Elementary School for board assistance in financing a high' Ian- school student's French guage seminar course was turned down "with regret." The student, Melanie Staud- inger, attends the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, and needs financial backing to enable her to take the course, but the board feared it would set an expensive precedent if it offer- ed her the money. Melanie plans to attend the University of Lethbridge to study education with specializa- tion in French, trustees were told, and is an exceptionally able student. Mr. Card suggested the board attempt to find bursary money for her. Tent Caterpillars Out City residents should he on the look out for an annual gar- den and yard pest, the Tent caterpillar. Determining whether or not one has tent caterpillars is done by examining trees and shrubs for clusters like muffs encir- cling branch and twig ends. The foam like cluster is usually light to dark brown in color and curtains from 30-50 eggs. Control of this pest should be started now, hatching takes place from mid-May to early June, with the most, effective Claresholm Cancer Drive A cancer society campaign for funds got under way in Claresholm Monday, with a campaign objective set at 200. The campaign will include both a business and a house to house canvass, conducted by Claresholm: businemfen, wom- en and youth. The nouse to house blitz is under the chairmanship of Mrs. A. McLean, and the business canvass is under Mr. D. J. Well- bourne. There will be no rural blit? :his year, but persons wishing a contribute may leave dona- tions at the Claresholm Phar- macy or mail them to the Ca- ian Cancer Society office in eradication during the c 1 u ster period. The easiest means of contra is to sever twig ends hosting clusters, or by squeezing clus- ters between fingers. In the case of late discovery, or after eggs have hatched, malathion is the best chemical control. (The tent caterpillar larvae are small and black in color anc identifiable by a white protec- Enersou Case Set To June 22 Court action ir.valving Ener- son Motors Ltd. and the City of Lethbridge was set over to June 22 in magistrate's court Friday This will be the sixth time the case has come to court.

S., Phenl 337-3920 live net that a colony weaves) This pest is very widespread throughout western Canada, and may be found on almost every type of tree or shrub but attacking apple, plum and May- day species in particular. The larvae do considerable damage to trees by defoliation during the post hatching period. Irrigation Delegation Plans Trip To Ottawa Officials of the Aiberla Irri- gation Proj e c t s Association will go to Ottawa Tuesday, after correspondence concerning fed- eral participation in the "cost sharing has drawn no response from government officials. Farrell Nelson, Raymond Ir- rigation District; Bob White, Eastern Irrigation District; Les Toth, Jjethbridge Northern Irri- gation District; Jake Thiessen, St. Mary River Irrigation Dis- trict; and Don Potter, assistant to H. A. Ruste, provincial agri- cultural minister form the Alber- ta delegation. They will meet with H. A (Bud) Olson, federal minister of agriculture and Jean Mar- chand, minister of regional eco- nomic expansion, in an effort to gain support from Ottawa un- der the terms of the two year old agreement. Government participation to this point has been soley pro- vincial, with this year's cost sharing budget to Alberta's 13 irriga t i o n districts totalling The province pays 86 per cent of rehabilitation costs, with the individual district making up tie remaining 14 per cent Jail Term Two Lethbridge men, Gilbert Maggs and Leslie Caldwell, each pleaded guilty to charges of theft when they appeared in magistrate's court in Leth- bridge and received sentences of four and three months res- pectively. In view of the fact Caldwell was married Vfith an 18 month old daughter, said Magistrate Lloyd Hudson, he would give him the lighter sentence. Maggs evidently has a drink- ing problem and a record of violence. It was recommended he serve his sentence in Bel- mont, an institution for al- coholics near Edmonton. In hearing evidence for the defence, Magistrate Lloyd Hud- son said he was going to pass a lighter sentence than he had intended. Under the original terms of the agreement, the federal gov- ernment was to pay 45 per cent, the province 41 and the district 14. Mr. Thiossen said the presen- tation that will be given at the meeting will include a request that the federal government cover 80 per cent of the costs concerning major projects, and the province paying 86 per cent for smaller constructions.
