Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE MEftALD 3 Dateline Alberta 'Vulgar' picture removed CALGARY (CP) Curator Lome Render has ordered the removal of a sexually ex- plicit picture from an exhibit in the Glenbow Art Gallery. The etching by Noboru Sawai, an art professor at the University of Calgary, depicted a number of couples engaged in sexual activities. Mr. Render said in an inter- view he made the decision to remove the picture after he had received a telephone call from a father who had attend- ed the exhibit with his young daughter.

"Serving you over a quarter century" 302 3rd Ave. South Phone 327-2S05 Wet and cold Below-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation are expected in the Prairie provinces for the first two weeks of December, according to the long-range weather outlook of the U.S. Weather Bureau. EDMONTON (CP) Allan Warrack, Alberta lands and forests minister, said Wednes- day he is considering steps to further restrict coal ex- ploration. He said the matter is under consideration in light of the Environment Conservation Authority's (ECA) decision to hold an inquiry into the effects of coal exploration during a government moratorium on development of the Eastern Slopes. In 1973, the government decided to stop land develop- ment on the Eastern Slopes until the ECA had held hearings and the provincial cabinet had issued guidelines. But Dr. Warrack has said there was never a moratorium on exploration. The minister promised Wednesday to check into published reports that three exploration permits issued early this year were not within government guidelines for exploration. The Calgary Albertan says it has discovered coal exploration permits for lands which were neither under lease nor adjacent to existing leaseholds. Dr. Warrack said earlier he was unaware of any permits being issued for lands not un- der lease but "this is possible on a minor scale on lands im- mediately adjacent to the lease." He said Wednesday that "it has been my understanding that in terms of areas outside or not adjacent to existing coal leases, exploration which has been allowed is not for development purposes." He added that he was not aware of any recent explora- tion permits violating the spirit of the government's policy to preserve the en- Come to Calgary vironment. Dr. Warrack said his department had turned down several exploration applications, and placed restrictions on projects before approving permits in some cases. "We have refused some applications where they in- volved significant danger to conservation of the environ- ment and to subsequent reclamation of the land."

The board, by a vote of 4-3, defeated a resolution which would have rolled back the salary to The board also gave the board chairman an extra 000 for use as required, but board chairman John Curran said "I see no reason why 000 is required" and said he would not use the money. The trustees voted themselves the salary just prior to last month's civic election. The leading supporter of the raise, former board chairman Harald Gunderson, was defeated in the election after topping the polls just two years earlier. Trustees also gave the chairman of the board's teacher contract negotiating committee an extra per month to cover travel ex- penses. Trustee Catherin Martini, who narrowly won re-election after voicing support for the salary increase, said she would accept the extra money as chairman of the negotiating team.
