By ROSS GIBB Herald News Service TABER Taber will have store hours controls next Mon- day when councillors will again consider rescinding the bylaw. Council was prepared to pass the bylaw last night but then had second thoughts. businessmen will think we are railroading said one councillor. Council reconvened its Nov. 13 meeting last evening but took no action on the bylaw designed to remove the limit on shopping hours in Taber. A week ona four to three divided council gave two readings to the measure if passed will repeal the ex- isting early closing bylaw. A third reading could not be given Nov. 13 because coun- cillors were not unanimous that a third reading should then be given. Under the Municipal Government without such agreement a third reading may not be given the same meeting of Councillors agreed that the adjournment and reconvened meeting is same and that further ac- tion could not be taken until the next regular meeting on Nov. 26. Further representation from local businessmen is an- ticipated. Last week council took no position on a Taber Businessmen's Association re- quest that shopping hours be extended to Wednesday after- noon and to 9 p.m. Thursday. Disagreement among TBA members prompted the council to move to throw put the controls on shopping hours. Last council approved shopping to 9 p.m. on the two Thursdays and Fridays preceding Christmas for 1972 only. And no recommendation has been made by the TBA for similar- consideration this year. repeal of the present bylaw would allow late shopping every night of the week except Sunday. Also under review were proposed amendments to the town's fire prevention and licencing bylaw. The fire bylaw amendment to be presented for adoption at a regular council meeting will provide for giving tags for infractions of the bylaw. Per- sons contravening the bylaw and receiving tags would volunteer to pay the fine within seven days. The fines would be for the first offence and for subse- quent infractions of the bylaw. These fines are now and Prior to this there was no provision for tags which council agreed are roughly comparable to park- ing tickets. Now they can just give offenders a ticket and say it or No change has been made in the provisions preventing burning garbage on Mondays and between sunset and sunrise. Clothing costs increase but less than forecast Clothing costs in Lethbridge took a jump upwards this fall but not as high as predicted by some retailers. In John predicted a 10 per cent increase across the board for wearables. But so far it has worked out at about five 3 charged in theft case Two men charged with possession of worth of stolen property found at Barons Nov. 15 appeared in Calgary Provincial Court Monday. Fred Henderson and Esko both of reserved plea and were remanded to Thursday. A third Calgary Leonard Angus charged in connection with the same appeared in provincial court Friday and also reserved plea. The stolen property was recovered through the com- bined investigations of the Calgary city police and RCMP from Picture Butte and Calgary. The stolen which includes 49 a truck and trailer three motorcycles and car is part of some worth of goods stolen in Calgary over a two-week period. The goods were stored in an empty service station and bulk plant at Barons. Some Calgary men supposedly had an agreement to buy the buildings to set up a truck business. Mr. Loewen said Mon- day. Leather goods had increas- ed about 10 to 15 per he said. Other retailers reported similar increases for leather coats and shoes. One retailer said a worldwide shortage of wool meant a sweater that used to cost now cost a 15 per cent hike. New labor contracts and increased costs for materials were cited as the major causes of increases. Children's clothes were holding relatively said Don of Wilson's Junior Wear. A lot of items had not increased at all and clothes for children were comparable with last he said. But leather goods and footwear had taken a Eaton's reported an 11 per cent increase for items like a pair of shoes in the sporting goods department.

Parents can set example for reading By JIM LOZERON HeraM Staff Writer Meaningful dialogue between parents and pre- school children Is an impor- tant part in the development of children's readiness to a meeting of the Univer- sity Womens' Gub was told Monday. Myrna Universi- ty of Lethbridge academic assistant and one of two spokesmen for the faculty of education's reading said com- not chatter is needed to provide children with the stimulation they need. Parents should encourage their children to learn about their environment at an early age and to talk about she said. A parent should read to his child and also set an example by reading in his said Mrs. McGregor. The reading handl- ing from six to 10 children a serves mainly the rural area which stretches from the Crowsnest Pass to Medicine and south to the U.S. border. Few children in the city are diagnosed because city school systems have their own per- sonnel to handle reading problems. The students are referred to the centre by parents on the advice of teachers or physicians. Diagnosis is directed at finding the cause of reading problems and recommen- dations are made to teachers about what action they should take. Action may be private tutoring for a six to eight- week period at which time the child returns to the centre for testing. If he has not progress- ed then other procedures are suggested for the child. Various diagnostic procedures are used when the child enters the Mrs. McGregor explained. He is checked for visual problems by a screening mechanism similar to a machine used in eye ex- aminations during driving as a second find out what his word knowledge according to the concepts he she said. The student may be tested on converting interrogative to declarative sentences or ac- tion sentences to passive said Mrs. McGregor. Clinic personnel learn more about the child's problem by his mistakes than by anything els. Spelling provides a clue to reading says Mrs. because the way a child spells a word will tell whether he or she is sounding it out propertly. A good diagnostic technique is oral reading you are able to look at the kind of errors he is said Mrs. McGregor. the word nuke sense does it make sense is it close in sound to the word he should have is it close configuration of the to the word he should have she said. The child is tested not only for his ability to read letters but also numbers and is tested on arithmetic computation. Since many of the students come from rural retired teachers or someone who has never taught may work with the student when his problem has been if a tutor is recommended. During the summer the centre handles about 40 students having reading up substantially from the number using the centre in the winter months. New car prices increase A devalued dollar helped push up imported car prices in Lethbridge this year while domestic models also edged slightly higher. Volvo dealer Pete Schipper of Shortstop Auto Ltd. said 1974 models were costing about seven per cent more than the 1973's. That would be about a increase on a two- door sedan. Mr. Schipper attributed the increase to devaluation of the new compulsory safety equipment and more items be- ing included as standard equipment. Fred Story of the Toyota Travel Centre said car buyers were looking at minimum increases of on his lines. One Datsun model was up in price by about eight per cent or Foreign Car Lethbridge Ltd. President Casey Vandenbrink said. But he added that this model was also 20 per cent bigger than last year. Lome Franz of Fleming Motors Ltd. estimated that Chrysler products had increased about to so far over last year. Gerry Wagenvoort of Beny Chevrolet-Oldsmobile said prices were not increased as yet but depended on the results of labor negotiations. Ford dealers said their smaller car the Pinto and were going up but declined to say how much. Taber Ford Superior said the suggested increases were not known yet Some buyers return kettles with potential shock hazard A number of potentially hazardous Proctor-Lewyt kettles have been returned to at least one Lethbridge department store. Eaton's department store had about a dozen kettles un- der the brand name of Viking returned after running an advertisement warning of the possibly dangerous electric appliance. Ken store says the advertisement will be run again if it appears people are not returning all the kettles. He said it could not be determined exactly how many of the affected models had been sold. Zeller's also took certain of its Bradford line keetles off the shelves and destroyed them after a warning from head office. electric kettles being recalled were manufactured by Proctor-Lewyt and sold un- der the brand names of Lifekmg and the brand names of certnin retail Tellers' Bradford and Elton's D. K. com- pany said in a release last month. kettles met nationally specified standards during and after manufacture. Potential shock hazard was discovered by the company in recent laboratory tests. In the interest of public we are appealing to all persons who have this product in their homes to return it immediate- ly for replacement or other appropriate adjustment without The only kettles affected have the following production series numbers stamped on the bottom of the cord outlet Repl.
