Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, November 19, 1970 Unfit for trial application made in Joan Bayon case An application has been made by defence counsel to have Joan Agnes Bayon, of Lethbridge, charged with two counts of non - capital murder, declared mentally ill and unfit to stand trial. Charles Virtue, defence counsel for Miss Bayon, said he has made application in person to Lt.-Gov. Grant MacEwan with a recommendation from Attorney - General Edgar Ger-hart. Miss Bayon, 24, is being held in connection with the Sept. 2 death of two - year - old John William Cotton and the March 23, 19G7, death of five - month-old Andrew Green, both of Lethbridge. City operates within budget The monthly treasurer's report submitted to city council Monday by Allister Findlay, finance director, shows city expenditures to the end of October just under what had been anticipated. Operating costs amounted to 82 per cent of the total budget- LETHBRIDGE PRODUCT - Prebuilt Industries Limited, of Lethbridge, has supplied almost 150,000 square feet of trailer units for living and office quarters at the $80 million Fox Creek natural gas processing plant, about 170 miles northwest of Edmonton. The plant, owned by Chevron-Standard Oil Limited will process more than 445 million cubic feet of gas per day, becoming one of the world's largest producers. Prebuilt's Elmer Ferguson, of Lethbridge, said the construction workers' camp his company has supplied is the largest undertaking of its kind in operation in western Canada. Quarters, dining and recreation facilities for 1,800 men are provided in prefabricated buildings-each comprising about six units, 10 feet wide and 50 feet long and connected together. They were shippd from the company's North Lethbridge plant. Provincial incentive plan is praised The provincial government has been commended for its action to give incentive grants to centres in Alberta with a population under 40,000. Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce P r c s i d ent Morley Tanner said the federal Regional Development Incentives Act is temporary while the provincial program may last longer. When the federal plan stops in 1972, Lethbridge should be in a position to ask for incentive grants from the province to ensure continued industrial growth for the city. "We are not asking to be included now as it would be a duplication of services." ed. Expenditures of 84 per cent would be normal by the end of October. Mr. Findlay told The Herald he anticipates a slight surplus in this part of the budget at the end of the year. A surplus in revenue is also expected, he said, because of return on city investments. This portion of the budget had been estimated at $125,000 but amounted to $247,000 at the end of the month. Mr. Findlay said the total should reach $300,000 by the end of December. Deficits have been encountered in social service assistance payments and the transit department. The transit deficit had been estimated at $43,000 this year. It now stands at $61,500. The estimate had been made on the basis of some services such as night runs after 10 o'clock being curtailed. Council, however, reversed its position and the service has been retained. Drug charge A Medicine Hat man, Bernard Greenfield, 20, was arrested in Medicine Hat Nov. 16 and charged with two counts of trafficking in barbituates, contrary to the Food and Drug Act. Greenfield will appear in magistrate's court in Medicine Hat Nov. 24. Tuxis boys -parliament Dec. 26-31 The 51st session of Tuxis and Older Boys' Parliament of Alberta will be held in the pro-v i n c i a 1 legislative assembly chambers Dec. 26 to 31 with about 12 young men from Lethbridge participating. The total of 80 young men in the parliament will divide into government and opposition parties with Gordon Porteous of Calgary, premier and George Bennett of Edmonton, opposition leader Dave Blakely of Lethbridge will be finance minister.

Submitted to Indian affairs �C Indian counselling program com pleted The final program structure for Canada's first eight-month Indian counselling technology course has been submitted to the department -of Indian affairs. The program was presented to Emile Korchinski, acting regional superintendent of education for the department, for approval to initiate the program at the Lethbridge Community College. Working in co-operation with Ron Gent, supervisor of education for the local branch of Indian affairs, the LCC school of continuing education was given the green light recently to establish the program on a full academic year basis. For the past two years the LCC has ome occupation discussion An application for a home occupation phone service sparked some discussion on the question of enforcement of regulations governing-such home businesses at Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commission. Rules set out in the city's zoning bylaw govern the opera' tion of home occupations, making it illegal, for example, to store materials on the premises or cause any offensive noise. Tom Nutting, city manager, Overdue books bring $4,300 Revenues from lost and overdue books at the Lethbridge public library amounted to $4,-300 during the past 12 months. George Dew, chief librarian, said books overdue a mere few days usually bring prompt payment, but when the delay goes into months it becomes embarrassing for both the library and the borrower. Cadet news The RCSCC Chincek band will practise tonight aboard ship at 7 p.m. Boxing will follow. SMILEY'S PLUMBING GLASS LINED WATER HEATERS �120 AND UP Phone 328-2176 said there was not sufficient staff at present to enforce the regulations. "We don't know if they are storing materials on the premises," he said. The city does not try to enforce the regulations, he said, and perhaps people realize this and the situation may be getting out of control. He suggested some consideration might be given in the 1971 budget to providing for an inspector to do the job. Alderman Steve Kotch said it might be possible to have city meter readers keep a check on the situation. Oli Erdos, utilities director, said if this were done it might be difficult for the meter men to gain access to some premises. Aid. C. W. Chichester suggested discussion of the matter could be shelved until a report on home occupations had been completed. Tosh Kanashiro, development officer, said it would likely be ready next week. Mr. Kanashiro has been contacting other cities across Canada to find out how they handle home occupations. Preliminary results of his survey indicate no major problems in other cities. been offc.'::g a summer session to train assistants for counsellors of Indians. The full-year college program will teach about 25 carefully screened candidates to operate as counsellor assistants in provincial and separate school systems throughout the province. Community counselling will also be a part of the work of the graduates. Dale Heyland, director of the school of continuing education, said the program must go through necessary channels after the final program structure has been submitted to Indian affairs. "We will submit detailed plans to the college commission for approval and then will have to gain approval from the academic council of LCC," he said. "The board of governors for the college will have to give the final okay before the program can be started on the target date of September, 1971." Mr. Heyland said approval was also received from the department of Indian affairs to expand the present first and second-year summer sessions in Indian counsellor assistant training to include a third year of studies. "The first-year program is basically an orientation to the counselling systems with some instruction on human behavior," he said. "Second-year studies concentrate on counselling practices, with a complete look at the Alberta education system since the majority of students counsel in an educational environment. "The third-year session, to be started next summer in conjunction with the first and second-year month-long summer sessions, will be aimed at instruction in group counselling, with an eye at community counselling." He said the third-year sessions will attempt to bring a real awareness to the student Guilty plea on 10 charges of the community services such as funds for education, Alcoholics Anonymous services and John Howard Society work, that are available to the people. Mr. Heyland said some faculty used for the previous summer sessions would instruct both the third - year program and the full-year program. "We will also need a co-ordinator to assist the students in both so- cial and academic aspects of college life." Mr. Gent said the programs established at LCC will add considerably to Indian education in Alberta. "If the program can't be filled with capable students from the province, the administration will draw from the rest of Canada to make the program a success." Gty man on research team for five-year India project Tracy Anderson, agricultural engineer at the Lethbridge Research Station, will be among five Canadian scientists taking part in a five - year agricultural research program in India. Details have been completed, with the depirture date set for Feb. l, 1971. Other Canadian scientists participating in the program will inciude Dr. W. L. Pelton and F. W. Warden of Swift Current, D.

New record for Campbell singers The fifth record by choirs di-rected by Lethbridge music teacher Anne Campbell has gone on sale at Leister's Music Store. The record, entitled A Snow Legend, Christmas with the Anne Campbell Singers, is the first one to be put out under the Lethbridge - based Big Chief label. The 17 numbers on the record, including a solo by young Lethbridge pianist Jeffrey Caiman, are taken from the group's 1969 annual Christmas show, The Singing Tree. The choirs are the Campbell Singers, accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Marion Swanston, the Teen Clefs accompanied by Mr. Caiman, and the Southmin-ster Junior Girls Choir, accompanied by Pat Skelton. The 1,000 records are being distributed nationally by Canada Music Sales Ltd. and prc-vincially by London Records Ltd. The records may be ordered through London Records at any record outlet. The Anne Campbell Singers won the 1970 George S. Mathie-son Trophy as the best junoi* choir in Canada. The trophy was awarded in 1968 to tho Teen Clefs. of Lacombe and a fifth man not yet named. The program has been under negotiation between the Canadian International Development Agency and the government of India for the past two years. In addition to the Canadian staff, there will be 125 Indian researchers and scientists coordinated into the program, working out of 25 localities throughout India. Dr. J. E. Andrews, director of the Lethbridge Research Station, said the study area of the program will revolve around the improvement of agricultural production on dryland. "Almost 80 per cent of the land in India is farmed as dryland, and many of the methods utilized are centuries old. As a result productivity is very low." The population increase was another reason for the implementation of the program, he said. About 80 per cent of the country's people still live on farms and the national population increases at a rate of about 2Ms per cent a year. There are an estimated 570 million people in India. "Rather than give food or money to India," Dr. Andrews said, "Canada can effect a long-term solution by supplying the knowledge to help India help herself." The Canadian scientists will co-ordinate research specifically in methods and techniques, agricultural engineering, soil fertility and physics, agronomy and plant breeding. impaired fine is levied Max G. Gumey of Lethbridge was fined $200 when he pleaded guilty in magistrate's court Tuesday to impaired driving. Damage amounted to $1,000 Monday evening when the car he was operating was in collision with a parked vehicle at 10th Ave. and 21st St. S. He was prohibited from driving anywhere in Canada for six months. JWtjWPi, YOU GET MORE VALUE for your money when you buy a magnificent Magnavox.
