Town Planning We are glad to see that tile city council is disposed 10 consider en- gaging a. town planning espen, to give some guidance to this com- munity in building for the city of the future. We hope Mr. Burgess w2i be able to convince the councij that his services will be worth while. in his preliminary tali to the council Mr. Burgess stressed the 'act that no city can serve its pur- pose if it is allowed to grow piece- meal and without guidance. That is what Jjethbridge has been doing to date, and tie only reason we nave done so well is that the origi- nal surveyors laid the city out with broad streets. are among our greatest assets. they live from hand to mouth. Many American ex-serricerren who wartirne duty in the Ed- monton area and scores from Bri- tain and Surope who heard about northern Alberta, are eager to es- tablish homes in Alberta. Fred Staf- S' SENIORITY RIGHTS o? most diSicuit prob- facing those in charge of the debt. of ex-servicemen is. the question of working out, senior- j iry rights for veterans who are now getting ereploymenr in incustry and dition. Gnder the new agreement, offered last August, Ottawa was prepared to pay Alberta a guaranteed mini- mum of just under and, as the corren: national income, a paymeas of about million IOT the year 1947. -If the agreement does not come off, Alberta goes back to 1947 to its statuto.ry subsidies, which are worth S1.8 million a year, plus what it can collect froci income and succession duties. 15 is clear thas in order to do as well with these taxes as it would have done under the agree- ment, it; -will have to collect about mTHiopg a year. This is near- ly three times what it ever col- lected from ihem. in the cast; and while it can expect to do consicer- ably better with the national in- come at its present levels men. and for the upioris and man- agement, that a solution to this problem should be worked cut. The its p: _______________ did in 1941. it is highly ouestion- able (a) whether K can hope to raise millions front these taxes in IS47 and Cot whether the Al- berta taxpayer would stsjui for it even if it was theoretically possible. Is adds up 10 this, ihas "without an agreement Alberta will have to go "back and levy vases wmch must raise much more than they ever raised before from those fields, and that even after doing so, and in- curring the political hosalitv of many people, it is still likely to be several millions shore of what it needs to balance the budget. This is a typical situation: it is even more true for some of the weaksr provinces (Alberta ranks fourth, nest to B.C." in its taxable Even the wealthiest province of all.

THE EPILEPTIC IN Many can remember when to have a member of the family af- flicted with epilepsy was considered a. disgrace equal to that of having a member of ,ihe family undergo treatment in a mental hospital. To- day to have been in a mental insti- tution for areatmenj and then have returned to one's occupation is not uncommon; in fact it, is generally known that most cases of mental and emotional disturbance are above the average in intelligence. And, today, also, as so many epileptics are their pan in the life of the community there is not the stigma of former years connected with epilepsy. Among the organizations that tave done much to put epilepsy on the sarae basis as other diseases is American Epilepsy League, Inc., Boston, Mass., who" give acl- vice to all epileptics and to their families to enables tifem to carry on treatment without and arrarjgeraeiit must be one which is fair to all parties concern- is, will only result in endless strife. Officially most have en- dorsed, through their leaders and policy-makers, the principle that returned men should, once they have become established in a job, be granted seniority as of the date of their enlistment-on activg service. This would seem to be, with certain reservations, a fair policy. However, in suite of these statements of policy, this is not wording out in practice. The reason for this seniority de- mand is to protect the veteran in Ms job in. case 01 lay-ofls. usual procedure In all plants where "unions are recognized is for the junior union members to be laid off. This wili mean that all those who took empiovment during the war nave seniority over the nan who enlisted in the services. -Widen means that in case of lay-oils, those laid off will be ail veterans- Veterans would presumably have been employed in tpese industries, had they not- been in the services, sz some time becween their date of enlistment and their actual employ- men; date. Therefore iz is obvious- ly unfair that they should be ex- pected to take the bottom of tne USE. This practise actually pen- alizes the man for his war service. All are agreed that this is BO; fair. On the other hand, when it. comes to putting the announced policy of the unions into effect, namely, that the veteran should have from the date of his enlistment, other difficulties arise. Although this over-all policy has been an- nounced by the union leaders it must be put into effect by action of the union locals. But these union locals contain a large number of men who went into industry instead of into the services. To put this into effect would mean, that they would be. in many cases, demoting themselves on the seniority list. In other words, they are asked to vol- untarily put themselves in z. ilon whi h-aiaan, getjser out." Then too there is the fact that seniority also carries with it. under normal conditions, promotions ace1. pay increases. It. stands to reason that a man who has been in the services since the outbreak of war will not have the ability iinrnedi- ateJy to handle a job which is nor- mally handled by man with five pr six years' experience. Therefore in many cases, this seniority which s, sub-tenant in his own. house and would have ie> continue paying S25 rent to the man oa the "first floor from whom he had sub-rented. The only difference would be that, as owner, fee would receive a month from, the man of the first floor, and would have the privilege of paying water rates and taxes.
