Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 22, 1974 City Scene No smoking petition clarified Opposition to a clean air campaign on the University of Lethbridge campus is being withdrawn now that campaign promoters have publicly indicated they only want a portion and not the whole cafeteria declared a no smoking area. Student sponsors of the clean air campaign have been cir- culating a petition on campus this week in an attempt to obtain enough student support to convince the governing bodies at the university to designate a portion of the cafeteria as a non smoking area. John Andrusiak, a student who initiated opposition to the campaign, said Thursday he only did so because the first petitions being circulated left the impression an attempt was being made to declare the whole cafeteria a non smoking area. Mr. Andrusiak stated he doesn't have any opposition to hav- ing a portion of the cafeteria designated a non smoking area and will withdraw all opposition to the campaign now that spon- sors of the petition have made clear their intentions. United Way tops '73 total Lethbridge's United Way campaign passed last year's total Thursday, Executive Director Dave Wilson said. Receipts and pledges totalled he said. Last year's total was and had been collected at the same point in the campaign. The fund has collected 73.1 per cent of its goal, he said. ATA seminar here Saturday Voting procedures and teacher certification proposals are the major issues to be discussed when 60 Alberta Teacher Association delegates meet in Lethbridge Saturday. County hunts lagoon site while calling for tenders COALHURST As this suburban hamlet waits for its proposed 000 water and sewer system, the County of Lethbridge is still searching for a site for Coalhurst's controversial sewage lagoon. Fearful of losing federal winter works money and prolonging an already-hazardous health situation, county council agreed at its last meeting to call for tenders while it continues its hunt for a lagoon site. The county had earlier reached agreement with Coalhurst farmer Hans Vant Land to build the lagoon on the Vant Land farm east of Coalhurst and west of Highway 25 and spray irrigate effluent. County council then modified con- ditions of the agreement following a stormy appeal hearing on the lagoon Oct. 28. Mr. Vant Land then withdrew from the accord, leaving the lagoon and sewage system in limbo. Because provincial environment regulations require that sewers be installed with water, the water and sewer system was left up in the air. County councillors have decided, however, to call for tenders on both projects before purchasing or ex- propriating a lagoon site. At its last regular meeting, council discussed yet another unsuccessful attempt to find a home for its hapless lagoon. Coun. Jim Nicol, who represents Coalhurst ratepayers, said he talked to area farmer Joe Fekete about building the lagoon on Mr. Fekete's land east of Highway 25 and one mile south of the original lagoon site. "He (Mr. Fekete) agreed to-it wholeheartedly to begin Coun. Nicol told council. "Now Dr. Palmer (a neighbor) says he's going to build a house" on his land north of Mr. Fekete, Coun. Nicol said. "If Dr. Palmer would agree to it, Joe would have no hesitation in agreeing." Coun. John Murray asked why Dr. Palmer, the medical health officer with the Barons-Eureka Health Unit would object to a sewage lagoon. "Isn't he (Dr. Palmer) concerned with the health of the people in queried Coun. Murray. Added Coun. Otto Wobick: "It looks to me like no one is going to say yes to the lagoon." But Coun. Nicol replied that one Coalhurst area farmer had not only agreed to the lagoon, but also asked the county to put the lagoon on his property. He said Ernest Pontarolo had offered his land as a site, and suggested that the county should look at the Pontarolo farm one half mile south of Coalhurst. Mr. Pontarolo said Thursday that no one from the county has come out to talk about his offer. He told The Herald he has no objections to the county's bringing the lagoon on his land. Rewriting bike bylaw winter works project An expanded committee to study changes to the city bicycle bylaw will begin work shortly, committee chairman Aid. Cam Barnes said Thursday. Aid. Bob Tarleck and Peter Bowkett, city traffic co ordinator, will join Aid. Barnes, Mayor Andy Anderson, a police department representative and John Ham- mond, city solicitor on the committee. "We'll work on it over the winter and come up with something by Aid. Barnes said. Aid. Tarleck told council Monday he wants to see the committee examine bikeways and bike paths as one solution to the problems left by the bicycle bylaw provision forbidding bikes on arterial routes in the city. The bylaw has become a bit of a joke, Aid. Tarleck said. "The problem is that where one part of it is unenforceable it makes it that much harder to enforce the other parts." Games appointment confirmed Aldermen eye early start for city council meetings The 1975 Canada Winter Games officials announced the ap- pointment Thursday of Al Simpson as public relations ad- ministrator. Mr. Simpson, formerly a baseball administrator in Alaska, replaces Ray Morton who resigned earlier this month. McGavin's unwilling Santa With Christmas not too far away McGavin Toastmaster Ltd., 1502 3rd Ave. S., found out the hard way Thursday there's already a demand for Christmas goodies. The company reported to city police worth of Christmas cakes ?.nd pastry was stolen from a truck parked in the company lot. City council will likely vote at its next meeting for an earlier start to regular council meetings, several aldermen said this week. A proposal is expected to be made to the Dec. 2 meeting that council start sitting at 4 p.m., break for an hour at 5 p.m. and hear delegations from the public at 7 p.m. Council has traditionally begun its Monday meetings at 8 p.m., but three of the four meetings since the Oct. 16 civic election have lasted until midnight or later. With budget deliberations looming, no relief to the late meetings was in sight. Woman injured in mishap Turner's budget piracy' An 80-year-old Lethbridge woman is in fairly good condition after being struck by a car in the 600 block of 16th Street North about p.m. Thursday. Mary Millus, 610 16th St. N., was admitted to Municipal Hospital with scalp lacerations, a sore right hand and hip following the accident. Lethbridge city police say she was crossing 16th Street North between intersections when she was struck by a northbound vehicle driven by Louise E. May, 906 20th St. N.

The meeting is being held in the music room at the Cardston high school at p.m. The association has not dis- cussed a successor to retiring incumbent MLA Ted Hinman, President Alma Hancock said today, and probably won't decide about a nomination at the meeting. The federal budget brought down this week is a "malicious act of resource says Lethbridge MP Ken Hurlburt. "It is bad enough that the rights of oil producing provinces are being Mr. Hurlburt says in an release, "but the danger is even greater now that the federal government has challenged the economic com- promise which made Confederation possible." In its budget, the Liberal government said royalties paid to provinces by resource companies would no longer be tax deductible. "Trudeau and Turner are now judge and jury of the methods the provinces use for collecting money from the resources given them by the Fathers of the Conservative MP charges. "The petroleum administra- tion bill and resource taxes begin a new level of federal domination in Canada." "The power grab must be stopped." he says. The move to an earlier start was precipitated by a successful motion by Aid. Bill Cousins at council's last meeting. It changes council's procedural bylaw so that any one alderman can cut off a council meeting at 11 p.m. by voting against the mandatory motion to carry on past that hour. Previously at least four aldermen would have had to vote against the 11 p.m. mo- tion to end a council meeting before all agenda business was completed. That happen- ed only once in the last coun- cil's term. Deputy Mayor Vera Ferguson gave notice of mo- tion at the last meeting that she would ask for a 5 p.m. start to council gatherings at the next meeting. But she said later she would agree to a 4 p.m. com- mencement. Most if not all the aldermen feel an end to burning the mid-. night oil on city business would improve the quality of council debate.

If a community opts for its own force, it would have to assume all the costs involved, she said. Magrath Mayor E. P. Tanner, said his town of 1.300 people would probably stay with the RCMP. "It's not just because of the cost." the mayor said. "We've been very happy with the RCMP. The have been in this community for many years." Mr. Tanner said under the present system the town will stay with the RCMP but if there are major changes, the council will have to take a close look at the proposal.

OLIVER INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY LTD. 236 36 St. NORTH LETHBRIDGE Phont 327-1 571 A spokesman for the town of Coleman. with a population of 1.400 people, said he is not sure what the town council would decide, but "I believe we would stay with the RCMP." Coleman is policed by the Blairmore RCMP. The spokesman added the decision would have to come'from the town council to make any changes. The same answer came from spokesmen for Willow Creek County and the Village of Bellevue. "I don't think we would dis- continue our policing by the RCMP. but the decision would have to come from the coun- cil." the Willow Creek spokesman said. Earl Johnson, mayor of Cowley. a village of about 250 people, said it is "highly doubtful" his community would have its own police force. "We couldn't afford it." Several town and village council members were un- available for comment because they are attending the Edmonton meeting. Miss Hunley told the delegates at the meeting it would also be a local decision whether a community's own force carried sidearms and added that the provincial government remains adamant that bylaw enforcement of- ficers not be allowed to carry firearms She said feedback from the communities is important because the provinces contract with the RCMP, which expires in 1976, is being renegotiated. The new contract, she said, will not require RCMP to en- force town bylaws covering such things as parking violations or stray dogs. U of L native studies receive grant By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The new Native American at the University of Lethbridge will receive a financial boost of from a private organization, the university announced today. The Donner Canadian Foun- dation, an international organization with a branch in Toronto, will provide to the program over the next three years, beginning in 1975. The Native American studies program was approv- ed and funded by the depart- ment of advanced education in May and first introduced courses to the U of L curriculum in September. The program is seen as a means of allowing Indian peo- ple to study within a post- secondary institution without divorcing themselves from their native culture. Since the department of ad- vanced education has granted for 1974-75 operating and capital expenses of es- tablishing the program, the foundation money is to be used for its further development. The funds are to finance the expenses of the native ad- visory board to the program, establish a recruitment program to inform native young people of the program's offerings, extend Native American studies to the reserve and maybe even es- tablish a native bursary fund, the university announced. Native American studies courses offered on the reserve would be under the continuing education department of the university. A portion of the foundation grant may also be used to sup- port the native awareness club, an Indian student social club on campus. The Donner Canadian Foun- dation only makes grants to existing programs to assist with their initial development. The foundation will provide the program with in 1975, in 1976 and in 1977. The U of L has received a sequence of good news for the program during the past six months, following a one-year conflict with the department of advanced education over the program's approval. One university ad- ministrator's pleasure with the announced grant exceeds the obvious financial boost it provides to the program development. "The most important thing is that the need of a Native American studies program has been recognized by people outside Alberta. Dean of Arts and Science F. Q. Quo said in an interview today. The program has been recognized by an international organization and that "makes me very the dean added. Dr. Quo cited two specific areas of the program the foun- dation grant will help expand.

During its development stage, the Native American studies program will place its emphasis on helping Native students who are on campus studying a variety of programs. The U of L now has 30 students enrolled in its programs. The program only offers one lecture-type course in con- junction with the anthropology department. Dr. Quo said the U of L ex- pects to hire a co-ordinator for the Native American studies program by the end of the year. Teacher nominated by NDP Brian Aman, a Coutts school teacher, will be the New Democratic candidate in Taber Warner for the next provincial election. Mr. Aman, 25, was nominated at a meeting in Milk River, 50 miles southeast of Lethbridge. He says he will concentrate on promoting his party in the South before the next election and he believes the NDP will form the official opposition. Mr. Aman will contest the election against Werner Schmidt, provincial leader of the Social Credit Party, and Bob Bogle, the Progressive Conservative candidate.

Business sessions continued today in Southminster United Church hall. "We have continually con- sulted with other churches as to co operative enterprises and this proves to be a very difficult exercise for all Bishop Goodman said in his charge to synod. Further discussions and a "straw vote" on church union and the ordination of women as Anglican priests were among topics listed for this afternoon. Bishop Goodman suggested a new dispensation of grace is helping restore neglected parts of Anglican heritage. "Usually we take a long time to get the message, and we look askance at what has emerged, even ridiculing and condemining it. True, these re -emergencies do appear as sects which often seem pre occupied with only one part of the gospel. Thus during most of this century we have been aware of pentecostalism as a denomination and more recently the charismatic movement now I believe the Holy Spirit is reclaiming our attention. J. Donald Shepherd, representing the Anglican Council for the North, will address a synod banquet this evening at in the El Rancho Hotel.
