Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LE7HBRIDGE HERALD Prejudice charged aim only at profits' By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Real estate developers owi more to their tennants than four walls and a roof, say: Tony Tobin, director of cit; preventive social services. Developers make mone> from the rents paid and shoul show some social conscience he says. Mr. Tobin told a group o tennants at 1411 Ashgrovi Apartments that all major ren tal projects should be designec complete with adult and chil dren's recreation areas. Pre-school programs are also important, he added. Lelhbridge developers are nol making such considerations and, it seems, arc more inter ested in making profits than with meeting the needs of peo pie. he says. The tennants at the meeting live in a so-called low renta. complex, formerly known as Spanish Village. Most were wel- fare recipients and single par- ents. They were meeting to assess rumors that all persons of na live origin, all those on wel- fare and single parents were to be gradually evicted as part of a new management plan. In addition, the tennants feared increased rents. The new owners, E. and Homes Ltd. of Edmonton, had, some of the tennants complain- ed, evicted 11 similar families the year previous after pur- chasing the first part of the complex. Tough rules The tennants complained of lough new restrictions which even prohibited the movement of children in the hallways. The tennants assumed their rents would be increasing soon because they heard the rents in the other buildings purchased by the company had been in- creased. They said their build- ?ng was newer than the others, one of three in the complex, and an increase in rent would logically follow suit.

He said he would gladly meet with the tennants group at a pre-arranged date and talk things over, including the feas- ibility of recreation areas and pre-school programs. The tennants' meeting was as frustrating as the problem it was trying to clarify. The tennants on three oca- sions during the meeting tele- phoned the complex's new resi- dent-manager. On the first occasion no one answered the telephone. Con- tacted a few minutes later, the resident-manager, who had just arrived from Calearv a few days previous, said he would mc-et the tennants in five or so minutes. Three-quarters of an hour later, the tennants called again and a woman said, "he's on his way over." Police called A few minutes later a Lcth- bridge City Police constable ar- rived. The constable said the resident-manager had com- plained of "loud a "noisy party" and that he had been threatened. The constable then smiled, ana locked at the group. The 20 persons there included rep- resentatives of the press, YWCA, and the preventive so- cial services department as well as the tennants. Shortly afterwards, the resi- dent-manager finally appeared, apologized his "hasty" ac- .ion and went on to deny all the rumors. The resident-manager, how- ever, said the tennants' rights extended only from the suite door inwards. The hallways and obby were the responsibility of the management. He confirmed the new policy hat children were not allowed n the hallways, although he would "bend some" during the colder winter months. Fears remain The tennants. following the meeting, remained suspicious fearful that their rents, vhich ranged between and 170 per month for two-bedroom unfurnished apartments, would increase. The tennants said any in- crease in rent would probably mean a mass exodus of welfare ennanls to cheaper and lesser quality apartments. They claimed many landlords iractice wholesale discrimina- Jon against single parents on velfare and that most welfare amilies were forced to move bout once per year because of ent increases.

Golden Brown French Fries TUESDAY ONIY Colonel S.indfis .iiid Ins hoys LCC head raps gov't The Lcthbridge Community College may pull out of the pro- vincial government's Priority Employment Program this win- ter unless some of the problems are straightened out, says Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC. He was commenting on a statement in the legislature by Dr. Bert Hohol, minister of la- bor, that he will reconsider the amount of money to be allocat- ed to LCC for the program this winter. Dr. Hohol was asked by Dick Gruenwald (SC-Lethbridge West) whether the government will consider injecting another into the program at LCC in addition to the already allocated. The minister said money for the program this year has been distributed throughout the province on the basis of unem- ployment figures and Leth- bridge is one of the least, if not the least, unemployed areas in the province. Dr. Stewart countered that LCC had 757 students enrolled in PEP programs last year more than any other institution in the province and there could be as many this year if the college is allowed a free rein to accept everyone who ap- plies. He said one of the criteria for enrolment was that the person had to be unemployed. "We had more students than anyone else so there must be an unemployment problem he said. Dr. Stewart said he doesn't like the idea of the college turning away students who want an education. "To think of students coming here to apply and for only reasons of dollars and cents we would have to turn them away I don't think that's my idea of providing service to stu- he said. So far, about 130 students have asked that they be con- tacted if the PEP is offered this year. Dr. Stewart said he is also upset that the college was not involved in the planning of this year's program. The college has 45 programs ready to go on short notice but, unless the government straight- ens out a few matters, the pro- grams may never get off the ground. "My concern is that if the government doesn't get a few things straightened out, my dir- ectors are prepared to recom- mend io the Board of Govern- ors that we not participate in the Dr. Stewart said.
