Sanding crews active at night By HERB JOHNSON HcraW City Hall Reporter It's 2 o'clock in the morning ana a light drizzle is beginning to come down over Lethbridge. An hour later the tempera- ture drops and the rain turns to sleet. The wet streets be- come skating rinks long, treacherous stretches of glare ice waiting for the morning rush of traffic. Although most of the people who will have to negotiate those streets are sound asleep, the situation is under control. Police patrol ears have been cruising the city and their driv- ers have been watching Hie weather. As it. becomes clear a problem is shaping up, one of Ihem phones the civic garage. A flight watchman answers and alerts the city's street sand- ing crews. If the situation is not too bad, a fsw crews will go out on the advice of the po- liceman to sand the worst spots. If it's serious, the streets fore- man is called and he decides how many crews are needed. No last minute organization is required; all the plans have been made and the routes for each truck assigned. Four highway sanders, trucks with rotating plates for spread- ing the inch crushed gravel, cover the main traffic arteries downtown area, Highway 3 and 13th St. Four inore trucks, tailgate sanders, handle the extra work when the situation warrants it. The gravel used on icy streets is just that, no chemicals are added. According to a cross Can- ada survey in 1966, tile city is unusual in this respect. All oth- er major cities from Vancou- ver lo Fredricton are shown as using salt, calcium chloride or both. Salt, if used when the tem- perature is above 15 degrees, speeds melting and helps the sand dig into the ice. At lower temperatures calcium chloride is effective. The disadvantage is that the chemicals corrode cars and eat away concrete curbs and gut- ters. Some cities use salt in their gravel stockpile to kesp them from freezing. Lethbridge did this at one time, but now the engineering department concen traces on k e e p i n g the gravel dry. It is stored in an old CP Rail roundhouse, away from tha weather. Clean up is another prob- lem. Ordinarly the gravel ac- cumulates until spring when crews start gathering it up. a job that lasts well into summer. Some cleaning up may be dona during the winter if there is a dry dusty spell. Snow removal on most city streets is handled by three city gradsrs and one front loader, with trucks being hired to haul the snow away. Scenic Drive, Highways 3 and 3A and the university access road are cleared by Tollestrup Construction Ltd. on a contract basis. The cost? The city's 1970 bud- get had for the entire operation, split almost evenly between sanding and snow moval. Marketing bill political football By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Staff Writer BROOKS Any person who opposes the national marketing BUI C176 is doing Canadian farmers a disservice. Ken WHliams of Taber, a council member of the Alberta Agricultural Products Market- ing Board, said here Friday the national marketing bill has be- come a political football. He said the people who drew up the bill made a serious mis- take by not incorporating a clause in it stating there would be producer representation on the board. Mr. WMliams conceded that the bill is not perfect, but ar- gues that no man could draw up such a blanket piece of legisla- tion and please everyone. Speaking to about 200 potato growers at the annual potato growers' convention, he said, "Fanners should insist C176 gets through. Only with the for- mation of a marketing group such as the one C176 advocates, can the Canadian farm com- munity gain a st ong lobby. Mr. Williams also feels there are too many farm commodity organizatior- and thinks every- one would benefit more if all these groups acted as one. He cited the example of three separate vegetable groups in Al- berta The Fresh Vegetable Commission, Alberta Potato Commission and the Alberta Vegetable Marketing Board.

Smallwood coining here Premier Joey Smallwood of Newfoundland has confirmed a visit to Lethbridge March 3 as featured speaker at the annual meeting of the Lelhbridge Chamber of Commerce. Will Bowns, chamber mana- ger, said he was pleased to re- ceive the confirmation of Pre- mier Srnallwood's visit and felt it would greatly enhance UK annual meeting. POLLUTION' MEETING Ted Lawrence, city engineer- ing director, scheduled to at- tend the annual meeting of the Alberta Advisory Committee on Pollution Control in Edmonton Wednesday and Thursday. "The amalgamation of these boards would first give Alberta producers more say in the fate of their product and secondly would centralize all vegetable activity in Alberta and end con- fusion." He warns against the estab- lishment of appointed commis- sions, saying once aa appointed board is in power, it is very difficult to get them out.

The company is building houses only but is planning to build mobile homes as the mar- kets warrant. Due to a delay in receiving assembly line equipment, the company will operate with 23-30 employees through December. Full production with 200 em- ployees is expected late in March, 1971. The assembly line will be ca- pable of turning out four com- pleted houses par day, with nine houses on the line in various stages of completion. When the plant is in full pro- duction, the square foot dear span btiilding will be set up with overhead cranes for moving walls and roofs, and large rollers to move houses along the line. Gordon Dragland, assembly line foreman said the house con- struction starts at ons end of the plant with men assembling the floor structure for the Scout philosophy has been updated Charles B. Stafford, eteeetor of program services for Boy Scouts of Canada in Ottawa, Friday outlined the philosophy underlying today's Scouting pro- gram to about 50 persons at- tending the first day of a two- day Scout conference here. Mr. Stafford, the special guest and resource person at the Southern Alberta regional con- ference being held in Southmin- ster United Church, said the as- sumptions that govern the think- ing behind Scouting programs were changed when the pro- grams were examined a few years ago. Today's programs are much more "boy centred" than for- merly, he said. Rather than have a Scout leader simply run- ning a particular program, it was now necessary to consult the boys themselves and con- centrate more on their needs as individuals. Another aspect of the change in plulosophy, he said, was the shift in leadership from the tra- ditional authoritarian approach to one of shared leadership. A two way relationship should exist between leader and Scout, he said. They should be equals and should share in the decision making process. A Nine months Gordon C. Coburn, 22, of Lethbridge was sentenced to nine months in the Lethbridge provincial jail when he pleaded guilty to 12 charges of fake pretences. The offences took place in Lethbridge between Oct. 20 and Oct. 211 and involved worthless cheques. leader must talk with his boys, rather than to them. Small groups irere also be- ing emphasized in today's Scout- ing, he said. He noted the in- creasing use of such groups in schools and said their use was due to the fact they were the basic learning group. It is here the young boy gets a sense of security and iden- tity, he said. He also learns be- havior patterns and values, and Jsarns to make decisions and accept responsibility.
