Government modifies policy City trustees laud building thaw By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer CALGARY Modifications to the provincial government's school building announced Monday by the minister of education at the Alberta School Trustees annual were applauded by most Lethbridge trustees Lethbridge public and separate school trustees attending the convention agreed that Lou Hyndman's announcement illustrated he had been listening to the con- cerns of trustees in the province and had acted accor- dingly Mr Hvndman called the modifications thaw in the the government plac- ed on school construction in the spring. The 90 per cent utilization of available classroom space in a school as qualifica- tion for new was reduced to 85 per cent providing student population growth has increased by at least five per cent for each of the two previous years It was reduced even further to an 80 per cent utilization rate if the student population increased by at least 10 per cent in each of the two previous years. Mr. Hyndman said the utilization guidelines were made generous to United Way campaign reaches mark The Lethbridge United Way campaign has raised compared with collected last year during the same number of canvassing days.

At the annual meeting of the board of directors today a report on the campaign was to have been presented. The report was to include areas of the campaign which have shown an increase and those which show a decrease compared with last year and the board of directors was likely to suggest a plan of ac- tion for the next three weeks to ensure said Mr. Purvis. United Way hopes to collect about about more than was raised a year ago 2 seek LCC council seat Two candidates are vying for the presidency of students' council at Lethbridge Com- munity College.

Extra financial support will be awarded for specialized additions to schools based on a sliding scale that increases the square-footage grant as area of construction decreases. The students in school board early childhood services programs will be included in the school system as pupil count for the purposes of tabulating school utilization rate. Renovation or new con- struction of facilities for early childhood services programs also will receive government finan- cial support. The Lethbridge Public School System has an early childhood services program operating out of the General Stewart School for preschoolers who have learn- ing difficulties. Mr. Hyndman also announc- ed increased financial support for school boards choosing the relocatable classroom and community-basic building core schools. The new design of schools being proposed by govern- ment is made up of a basic core of seven permanent administration staff auditorium kitchen facilities and a school- community library. The core-unit is to be con- structed to allow for ad- ditional classrooms to be plugged into it. Mr. Hyndman suggested the school boards qualifying for the community core school may receive a cash new design develop- ment grant Most of the costs of moving relocatable schools and por- table classrooms will be paid for by the department of education. Mr Hyndman cautioned trustees that requests by them for government funding under the existing and newly modified programs of the provincial government will '.'only be if school boards can show that they have utilized all alternatives within their school system. Utilization includes adjust- ment of attendance boun- iise of portable classrooms at existing purchase or lease of under-utilized schools owned by another board in the same area or by a board in an adja- cent school jurisdiction and adjustment of mixed grades in schools in areas where building is contemplated. He said school boards must also explore the possibility of co-operating with other school boards in forming regional school districts and in the bus- ing of students to balance stu- dent populations. While speaking of school Mr. Hyndman urged trustees to let the department of education of their views on busing and school boundaries. The department has under- taken a study on busing and boundaries and it may be the only opportunity truestees have for on the tqro controversial issues for the next five to 10 he' said. Mr. following his announcement on modifications to the school building encouraged trustees to attempt an early settlement of contract negotiations with teachers in the province. Because of the continuous increase in the cost of is very much in the in- terests of school boards to negotiate well in of the expiration date of the con- tracts. By RIC SWIHART Henld Staff Writer About contract sugar beet growers in Southern Alberta will share more than 18 million as initial payments for the 1973 crop go into the mail today. Harvest finished about the end of October. Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. will process about tons of beets harvested by farmers in 1973. Dwight general manager of Canadian Sugar said the initial pay- ment will be a record per ton for beets delivered to the receiving stations. This initial payment is per ton higher than the initial payment in 1972. Subsequent payments will be made to farmers during the next 12 months as the sugar produced from the crop is sold and the growers receive their contracted share of the net returns from the sales. Mr. Purdy said there were five payments to farmers after the 1971 initial giving producers a final net return of per ton The final returns for sugar processed from beets grown during the 1972 crop year haven't been tabulated yet since all of the sugar hasn't been sold. Refined sugar prices in Canada are established from the price of raw cane sugar imported to cane sugar refineries in three in Montreal and St. New Brunswick. The cane sugar price has remained fairly constant dur- ing the past year or two under the control of an international sugar agreement to which Canada is a part. This agreement terminates at the end of 1973 and efforts to revise and renew it have said Mr Purdy Canadian sugar prices in 1974 will be deter- mined by the price of raw cane sugar on the often volatile world commodity he said. is therefore impossible to forecast the magnitude of returns from 'sale of sugar in the Prairies in 1974 bjit pre- sent expectations are op- Canadian Sugar .Factories processes sugar in Taber and Picture Butte from beets grown in Southern marketing sugar through Alberta and Saskatchewan.

He said similar competition has been evident in the past but the return from sugar beet has been rewarding and reliable for the long term. is fair to assume that prices on the food commodity markets will settle out fairly soon and the sugar beet will return to its normal position in the economy of the irrigated farm he said.

CIC favors federal export tax The Lethbridge chapter of the Committee for an Independent Canada has sent a telegram to energy Minister Donald McDonald endorsing federal government policy on oil export taxes. In its the CIC suggests the formation of a national petroleum cor- and urges the government to return to the province a significant portion of earnings from the export tax. Local CIC chairman Mark Sandilands said Monday increase in the well head price of crude oil would not benefit Albertans but would only benefit foreign-owned cor- porations. He said increasing the well- head price of oil would bring a slight increase in the amount of royalty payments but most of the profit would go to the oil companies and would increase the price of oil to consumers. oil export tax is bring- ing the price of crude oil up to world market prices and would increase the amount of money going to the people of said Mr. Sandllands.
