Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Monday, November Cool conveyance More gymnasium time proposed Elementary school students should get. more physical education class time, ac- cording to a resolution to be introduced to the Alberta School Trustees convention in Edmonton today. The school association- sponsored resolution notes that elementary students in most schools get only an hour of physical education per week, although the province recommends a minimum of 150 minutes per week.

About 700 trustees, including at least 50 from Southern Alberta, are at the convention to hear a major an- nouncement on school financ- ing by Education Minister Lou Hyndman today. Both teachers and trustees have been lobbying for more funds and many school boards have gone on record that they must have more money if they hope to meet the salary demands of their teachers. The association will also elect its new executive for 1974-75 and at least one major change is inevitable. The trustees must choose a new president to replace Harald Gunderson who lost his seat on the Calgary board of education in the Oct. 16 civic election. Other resolutions presented to the convention will call for: the majority of control over teacher certification to be shifted from the univer- sities and the government to the Alberta School Trustees and Alberta Teachers Association; pregnancy-related illness of teachers be given the same regard as any other illness; the adoption of a new criteria for teacher evaluation: an intensive analysis of Grades 1-9 mathematics with the aim of improving the old ma thematic skills; ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Phone 328-4095 the replacement of junior high school grades with the middle-school concept of education that places more emphasis on the student than the curriculum; an increase in the minimum age for off-premise purchase of liquor from 18 to 20 years of age; information about the role and responsibility of trustees to be included in the educational administration course for student teachers; provincial incentive grants to encourage the development of in-service education programs for teachers in such areas as con- sumer education, en- vironmental studies and reading; amendment of legislation and regulations so school bus drivers are no longer required to have an annual written and driving test; adoption of a fixed spring break of one week's duration to replace the Easter holiday week in Alberta schools.

Sidecars are favored for winter riding by some motorcyclists because of the extra stability they lend on slippery roads. Others simply like to be different. City Scene Man charged after accident A man has been charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident and dangerous driving following a high speed chase in Lethbridge, Saturday. Charged is Richard Schultz, 19, of 1313 4th Ave. S. He is scheduled to appear in Lethbridge provincial court Wednesday on the charges. Police say Schultz was going north on 23rd Street North in the 1100 block when his car and a northbound car driven by Eva Rude of Suite 1601 23rd St. N. collided. The Rude car was then in collision with a parked car owned by Oscar Ludwig, 1131 23rd St. N. The collisions resulted in damage and one minor in- jury. Police allege Shultz left the scene and was involved in a high speed chase with two police cars and was apprehended six miles north of the city limits. Juveniles charged with theft Two boys face car theft charges and a third was charged with theft of license plates after a 1970 Ford half ton was reported stolen from Beny Chevrolet's used car lot on the weekend. Lethbridge city police say they received a call from Sifton House, a city juvenile detention centre, Friday afternoon reporting the three missing. The juveniles, two 14 and one 13, were picked up by Pincher Creek RCMP about a.m. Saturday in the allegedly stolen truck. They were later returned to Lethbridge. One was charged with the theft of license plates after some plates were reported stolen from a city truck. CIC opposed to helping U.S. The Committee for an Independent Canada says it is not against all fertilizer plants, just those which will Staying in Calgary? Stay with friends.

The committee opposes the proposed Alberta Ammonia plant at Raymond which would pipe 95 per cent of its product to the U.S. and the PanCanadian plant proposed for Brooks, the Lethbridge chapter of the CIC said in a weekend news release. "A large portion of the anhydrous ammonia produced by these two plants will be up- graded in the U.S. and ex- ported back to us for resale at higher prices." the group says "In effect. Alberta will be needlessly exporting both jobs and profits to the U.S." Other projects currently be- ing planned, the CIC says. would be of greater benefit to Alberta in terms of jobs and income "For example. Alberta Gas Chemicals Ltd. an Alberta company, plans to build a urea plant utilizing natural gas near Medicine Hat Alberta Gas Ethylene Ltd is also interested in constructing a large ethylene plant in Alber- ta, also using natural gas." Surh plants would provide up to 10 times the number of jobs for the equivalent amounts of natural gas con- sumed as the simple ammonia plants proposed by PanCana- dian and Alberta Ammonia, the CIC says Solar heating costly., scientist cautions By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer When conventional heat sources are exhausted, Canadians may be able to use solar heat to warm their houses. But solar heat is several years away yet, and will not provide a total heating system, says a University of Lethbridge physics professor. Too little heat is collected to last for several cloudy days in a row, so the system would have to supplement something more versatile, says Arvid Schultz. Solar heat may be used here in 20 years, but not in a decade. "I don't think we're going to be that hard up he says. The Kenyon Field weather office says the average sunshine in Lethbridge is 96 hours a month for December, compared with 345 hours a month in July. The long-term Small thefts up, break-ins down Compared with August, break ins and assaults declin- ed in Lethbridge during September while thefts under increased, the city police monthly statistical report shows.

ATTIC YOUR FURNACE George Watson, an architect, says solar-heated houses are feasible, but major design changes would be in- volved. All the ones built so far have been experiments, he says. A large part of the roof has to be a glass heat-collector, he says, "Your attic becomes your furnace, so to speak." Norm Fooks, another architect, says solar heat will be expensive, since a way to store the heat overnight must be provided. Insulation would also have to be heavier than used currently. "We have two things in Alberta lots of sunlight, and cheap natural says Mr. Fooks. The glass collector would have be at right angles to the sun's rays, says Prof. Shultz. In Lethbridge, that would be about 20 degrees from vertical, he says. It would take a few thousand square feet to trap enough light. The cost would be high. Heat could be stored in a large tank and it could be used to warm water, but some electricity would have to be used to circulate the water through the system, from the tank to the collector and through the radiators. "Fortunately, water is he says. Glauber's salts might also be used to store the heat, he says. The salts could store heat well, since they have a phase change (melting or solidifying) in the right temperature range. SOME RESEARCH Andy Vrabel, manager of Ritt Way Heating and Air Con- ditioning Ltd., was the only person contacted by The Herald who knew of a solar- heated house. "We have done some research with it with some Calgary he says. Installation is costly, but fuel savings are very good, says Mr. Vrabel. Solar heat works well until the temperature gets below zero, he says, adding that there is a lot of sun in the South. It might be sufficient into the fall, he says. A successful solar heating system has been built into a house in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey, B.C. The system, described in the July issue of "Heating, Plumbing and Air uses two base- ment storage tanks with a total capacity of 800 gallons. ROOF COLLECTOR A horsepower motor connected to a thermostat pumps water to and from the rooftop collector. The water circulates if the rooftop temperature exceeds the storage temperature. The collector consists of copper tubes soldered to thin copper sheets and covered with a dou- ble thickness of glass inch apart. The copper sheeting is painted black to absorb heat. -The owner of the house es- timates the system supplies half his home heat.
