In Vulcan. RCMP joined the community's volunteer fire department in extinguishing a burning outhouse that youths had placed in the middle of Centre Street. By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer The iour-month strike against Cominco Ltd. ended today as employees began returning to work in in- stallations closed since July 1. a union official said in a telephone interview from Kimberley. B.C. Cominco's notice accepting a new contract was received this morning, said Les Lilley, president of Local 1672 of the Association of Commercial and Technical Employees Workers earlier voted 82.5 per cent in favor of the contract, he said. given UW fund The Lethbridge and District United Way received its largest club donation so far Thursday from the Labor Club of Lethbridge. The cheque was twice the club's usual donation, said Nap Milroy, chairman of the board of directors. The United Way deserved a cost of liv- ing increase, he said. Mr. Milroy said the club contributed to the United Way because it covers a range of charities. The club also contributes to other charities, and supports minor sports, he said. The Labor Club is sponsored by several trade unions in the city, but is open to everyone, said Vice Chairman Bill Espelien. Dave Wilson, executive director of the United Way, said the contribution put the drive up to of its 000 goal. The campaign will be concluded when several self canvassing contributors turn in their collections. The final back-to-work schedule would not be known until after a meeting with company officials this after- noon, he said. The agreement should give ACTE members an average increase of 24 per cent to 25 per cent, said Mr. Lilley. ACTE has two scales, one for clerks and one for technicians, and he hasn't calculated exact percentages, he added. Another raise is due July 1, 1975, and a cost of living ad- justment (COLA) clause will yield another one cent an hour for every 0.35-point increase in the consumer price index. The pension plan will still be the Cominco Guaranteed Retirement Income Plan, giv- ing half-salary at age 65. he said. The agreement will last 30 months. Contract language and grievance procedure were both improved "immensely." said the local president. The strike involved both ACTE and the United Steelworkers of America and closed the Sullivan Mine in Kimberley, the HB Mine in Salmo and the Trail smelter, as well as of- fices in Kimberley and Trail. The USWA represents tradesmen in the mines and smelter, and ACTE represents office staff and technicians. USWA voted last month to accept a new contract, but neither union would resume work unless contracts were signed with both. Here's Aesop with upbeat By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor Old Aesop never had it so good. Lethbridge Community College Harlequin Players have taken him in hand: fables have become falables, the wicked wolf is a frustrated good guy and the tempo of the oft told tales is up beat. The result, Aesop's Falables, is a light hearted rock musical expecially geared to youthful (or young at heart) audiences. Opening at the Yates Thursday after- noon to an exuberant crowd of students from schools in Grassy Lake, Milk River, Coaldaie, as well as Catholic Central and Gilbert Paterson in Lethbridge, Harlequin Player's spoof on Aesop's wisdom met with positive response. Thursday's performance was a bit uneven, seeming to be a last minute rehearsal for the LCC troupe, but the ac- tion was fast paced and the characters in fair command of their roles. Under the direc- tion of LCC drama instructor Betty Sorensen, Aesop's fables irreverently mocked and, in one or two instances. divinely upstaged. Unfortunately, the opening full company number "Rock, Rock, Rock with Old Aesop" was ragged and too loose verging on sloppily performed to be appealing. The per- formers must try for better co ordination, even though the is a light hearted take off. Essentially thoug, troupe spirit is evident and there's nothing wrong with Aesop's Falibles that a bit more rehearsing and a little more concentration on lines won't cure. Tony Dimnik was favorite at the matinee performance. A stand out, Mr. Dimnik was in love with his role as Wilfred M. Wolf, secure in his dialogue and casually loose limbed. As a mis understood wolf, he wants to be loved and gets his wish: the audience ob- viously enjoyed his facile per- formance. Mark Campbell as Jack (In the Box) is the "official fable introducer" and a mainstay of the production. Popping up and down to criticise Wilfred and add tongue in cheek asides to the action, Mr. Campbell is a suitably bouncy commentator. Eye catching perfor- mances were also given by Penny Takahshi as Clarissa Crow, Paul Cohen as Thadius T. Tortoise, Kelly Fiddick as Grass Hopper and Candace Craft as Miss Aunt. Aesop's Falables makes no pretensions to heavy minded commentary or serious drama. But it is fun, and the kind of family entertainment not often available locally. The Harlequin Players per- form tonight and Saturday at the Yates at 8 p.m. The musical will also give a matinee performance at 11 p.m. Saturday in the Lethbridge Public Library. After the Lethbridge show, Aesop's Falables will travel to Magrath High School Nov. 4, Matthew Halton High in Pincher Creek Nov. 5 and W. R. Myers School in Taber Nov. 7 for two performances. Optometrist withdraws PC East bid City optometrist Walter Mitson will not contest the Progressive Conservative nomination for Lethbridge East. Local constituency associa- tion secretary Gladys Palmer said Mitson. .mentioned earlier this month by The Herald as a possible can- didate, has withdrawn from the PC nomination race because of business com- mitments.
