Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, November 21, 1974 Teaching aid centre proposed A report calling for the es- tablishment of a co operative centre to provide teachers with the facilities, resources and personnel they need to develop school curriculum and curriculum materials is to be to Lethbridge teachers in December The local council of the Alberta Teachers Association agreed to present the curriculum centre concept to school staff meetings for reac- tion at its regular meeting Wednesday The report was prepared by the Lethbridge Team for Pro- ject Canada West, a team of five Lethbridge city and coun- ty educators who have been involved with the experimen- tal development of a new social studies curriculum for high schools Lethbridge and district lacks an organization to co ordinate the "great deal of ex- pertise" and 'substantial resources that are available in this area for curriculum development. Project Canada West team member Henry Krause told the meeting 'In no way would such a centre be an attempt to duplicate what is already in existence It would, however, supplement and strengthen what already he emphasized. Mr Krause suggested to the teachers they are in the best position to determine the needs of children in their classroom However, bound by the daily demands of teaching students, it is virtually impossible for each teacher to develop the kinds of materials that would best meet the needs of the students, he continued.

Call Hardware 327-5767 DOWNTOWN A petition, already signed by more than 200 students, is being circulated on campus at the University of Lethbridge in an attempt to gain support for clean air in the cafeteria. The student sponsors of the motion hope to acquire enough signatures to convince the governing bodies at the un- iversity to designate a portion of the cafeteria as a non smoking area The cafeteria is not a large area and there is poor ven- tilation, student council member Jerry Kovacs ex- plained Wednesday as the reason cigarette smoke ac- cumulates in large enough quantities to inconvenience non smokers Earlier this month, Mr Kovacs and student council member Trevor Cook introduced a motion to ban smoking at student council meetings Five of six coun- cillors supported the motion.

Wednesday, as only one person made presen- tations at a public land use hearing Esther Allen of Taber gave three short briefs dealing with small acreages, recreation on agricultural land, and location of industrial plants near towns "Any large-scale industry should be looked into very thoroughly before it is approv- ed and studied as to the benefits to the Mrs Allen told the 15 Taber and district residents in atten- dance. The quality of life of a com- munity should not be ruined by industry, she said If animal processing plants are to be located near popula- tion centres, there should be a buffer zone of at least two miles between the industry and an urban area, and one mile between it and nearby farms Mrs Allen suggested the civic and provincial governments should be look- UW directors note lagging community aid A motion to continue next year was passed Tuesday by the Lethbridge United Way's board of but the motion did not pass un- animously, the group's public relations chairman said Wednesday. Doug Walker told The Herald the vote took place at a closed meeting of the board of directors. There was "a good deal of feeling" among the directors about the way the community has responded to this year's campaign, said Mr Walker Too many firms refuse to allow canvassing, and too many canvassers leave their kits untouched on the desks until they return them The question at the meeting was "Does the community want the United Way9" he said The board also set up an independent committee to study the member agencies to see if any could be funded by government Dave Wilson, the cam- paign's executive director, said the fund had reached 72 5 per cent of the goal and 99.6 per cent of what was collected last year By the same time last year, 000 was collected, he said. Planners approve three proposals Three applications for development permits in the city's industrial park were approved by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday.

Southern Alberta Co-op Ltd received a development per- mit for a truck garage at 704 36th St N. in an arrangement involving D D Transport Ltd Southern Alberta Co-op is acquiring land for expansion owned by D D Transport and in return purchased another parcel of land from the city for the trucking firm and also made the necessary development applications for it In the only other application before it Wednesday, the planning commission tabled a request by Henry Homes Ltd. to construct an office building at 234 13th St N. ing to food processing rather than industries which would exhaust natural resources She said to her knowlege, firms such as General Foods, Kelloggs, and Robin Hood do not have a plant west of On- tario and could possibly be en- couraged to locate in Alberta because of their agricultural dependence In a futher brief on small acreages. Mrs Allen said speculators have caused the cost of land to rise in price "Land speculation should be checked by civic, provincial, or municipal government Those who want a rural life should be able to afford small plots of land adjacent to urban centres, Mrs Allen said However, she stipulated parcels be limited to one to two acres of less-than-pnme land to be serviced by the buyer She also suggested city governments should be able to annex agricultural land at a price based on productive value After purchase, land should be built on or put into use within one year If developers or contractors buy the land, they should get together with government to build lower cost houses, Mrs Allen said In her third brief. Mrs Allen said recreational use of farm land is a concern because "city people have more recreation time and each year more are seeking to use rural areas A prime objective would be to educate recreationists and farmers on the legal rights of the farmer or landowner "The landowner himself doesn't know his nghtrs, Mrs Allen suggested. She cited the uncetainty many farmers have about water rights on their proper- ty, whether they are obliged to let people into these areas. A suggestion which met with strong support was that government set aside substan- dard agricultural land for recreational use by snow- mobilers, trailriders, joggers, and campers Mrs Allen indicated if farmers do let recreationists onto their land it might not be out of the question for "private deals" to be dis- cussed, so the farmer gets paid for use of his land "'MI ON r i C7 Ul 1 ART J ;y :M FRAMING -fc f SINCE 1958 f 710 5 AVE S HEINO DEEKEN Manager FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E.
