Not only do union demands contribute to higher says Mr. but they lead to an erosion of individual rights. The freedom of an employer to operate in the face of a strike has virtually gone by the board. A person is free to join a union but is not free not to join. The freedom of a third party to carry on business with a struck company is fre- quently in question and the freedom of those not involved in a strike is frequently trampled he said. Some critics attribute infla- tion to disproportionate in- dustry profits but Mr. Rapsey claims increased profits are merely a continuation of a recovery from 1970 levels when industry held the price line because of the federal government's policy of volun- tary restraint. He says salaries rather than price increases have a greater effect on inflation. and salaries are ten times as important as profits in their effect on selling he says. Spending at all three levels of government our economic says Mr. Rapsey. Government spending in seven years will reach a war time level 62 per cent of the total national if current trends are not reversed.

The letters are on council's agenda for its Monday night. meeting. written by Sandra San- of 2107 13th Ave. S. agree fully with Aid. Ferguson in that council should definitely have a policy in trade promotion. for growth's sake policy which seems to be evi- dent and going for in- dustry outside Canada is total- ly against what I would like to see for Sandilands suggests Lethbridge could learn from populated cities that have grown out of and consider long-ter'm benefits of an intelligent approach to growth rather than a search for cheaper foreign Mrs. Helen writing to says there are too many unconsidered angles on the project aired at city coun- cil two weeks ago. is there so much secrecy surrounding the proposed Japanese financed project and more foreign she asks. have already ex- perienced-some water shor- tages during the past years can we cope with more demands on the department of the en- vironment is already less than pleased with the performance of our sewage treatment facilities yet there is a proposal to increase it even more. am hoping Lethbridge is spared the bigger-is-better Mrs. Schuler concludes. The debate in council two weeks ago occurred after city economic development officer Dennis Q'Connell asked for for'trade part of it for a trip to Japan in January. The January trip was council Was because Lethbridge is being considered as a possible loca- tion for two Japanese-backed industries that could employ as many as 400 people. The request was approved. In other agenda matters facing council the board of directors of the Lethbridge Lakers baseball team will appear before coun- cil to request that the stands at Henderson Lake Stadium which burned down this summer be rebuilt. The team's Brian Hogan says the team must know before Nov. 30 whether the stadium will be rebuilt in order to tell the rest of the league whether Lethbridge will be able to field a team in the 1974 season. A number of changes in the stadium as it existed before the fire are requested in another letter to council from the Southern Alberta High School Football League. Rev. John secretary of the says high school football has been a major te- nant of the facility for 14 years and outlines the need for at least a press electric Scoreboard and other improvements over the old facility. Council also has a letter from the manager of Simpsons-Sears Ltd. opposing closure of the 13th Street N. access to the Centre Village Mall shopping centre. Closure of the access was termed the best solution to traffic problems at the 13th Street and 2nd Avenue N. by city engineer- ing director Randy Holfeld at council's last meeting. Aid. Bill Kergan had brought the matter up claim- ing the intersection was dangerous and signal lights should be installed. Sears store John says closure of the 13th Street access would create an extreme hardship as most of the south Lethbridge traffic uses that entrance to the parking lot. He suggests moving the lights at 13th Street and 2nd Avenue A to the 2nd Avenue intersection of closing the 2nd Avenue intersection to pedestrians. Mr. Holfeld told the last meeting of council moving the lights to 2nd Avenue would only create worse problems at 2nd Avenue A. He also said it would take from three to six months to get delivery on a single set of traffic lights and by the time the lights at both intersections were integrated the cost would likely be Ag-Expo display space sells fast With still months to go until the opening of Ag-Expo one-third to one-half the display space has been sold. Marilyn district home economist who serves on the Ag-Expo committee says they hope to sell all the space by Dec. 15. March will be held in the Whoop-Up and Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilions.

The Ag-Expo will reflect the theme of the fair which will show farmers the latest developments in agriculture for 1974. Farmers have to plan ahead because it's no longer possible to decide to buy a combine in the fall and go out and get Miss Tatem added. Many farm commodities have to be ordered a year in advance. Although there may not be an increase in the number of implement dealers at the the ones that were there last year are buying more space so there could be more farm machinery at this year's show. The seed fair will take on a new look. With each seed dis- play there will be an exhibit showing what happens to the seed from harvest to end product. AgExpo will also have something for the homemaker. There will be and carpet display and a cooking school that will emphasize the preparation and use of products made in Alberta. CLIFF BLACK.
