Drivo Ph. 328-7751 Bumper sugar year The hardest of southern Al- berta's acre sugar beet crop is back in full swing after .27 of an inch of precipitation hailed the process Thursday. A record crop of tons is expected this year, said Dwight W. Purdy, general man- ager of Canadian Sugar tories LU1. Increased acreage and an ex- cellent growing season should push the 1971 harvest tons above a below average 1970 crop, he said. The 1971 harvest started Sept. 20 on a controlled basis and HI far Ions of beets have been delivered to the process- ing plants in Taber and Pic- ture Butte. Mr. Purdy said Canadian Su- gar Factories expects to pro- duce 150 million pounds of su- gar from the 1971 crop and to keep its plants in operation un- til Christmas. The harvest nor- mally runs until the end of Oc- tober. Canadian Sugar Factories has contracts with about growers.

"There is no other big construction project in sight to take up the slack." He said a number of smaller construction projects planned for Lethbridge will help ease the load a little but added, "It won't be significant." Looking to the northern part of Alberta, Mr. Berlando said a number of large scale con- struction projects near Red Deer and in an area north of Edmonton are either under way or planned for the winter.

SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 However, workers in north- ern cities will readily absorb those jobs. He anticipates that some Lethbridge area workers will also be directed north to work. About 25 city carpenters have been cleared by the union to the northern jobs and more are expected to leave as the de- mand for skilled workers in- creases. But due to the heavy labor force already existent in those regions the number of district workers employed there will not do much to ease heavy un- employment here, he said. He reiterated: "The situa- tion looks very grim." Teachers in rural dislricts ofj southern Alberta have voted overwhelmingly in favor of strike action to back demands in their contract dispute with the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association. F. J. Ackcrman, representa- tive of the Alberta Teachers Association, will make immedi- ate application fo the board of industrial relations to hold a supervised strike vote as soon as possible. The decision was reached after five meetings held Wed- nesday, Thursday and Friday when teachers in the disputed area voted 88.7 per cent in favor of the application for strike action. Working in an area of square miles, 897 teachers voted in favor of the applica- tion with 114 voting against the move. A total of 72 per cent of j the eligible teachers voted. Mr. Ackerman said, "The vote shows graphically the av- erage classroom teacher's atti- tude toward the importance of consultation rights, work- ing conditions and salaries. "It also indicates the unao ceptability of the trustees' posi- tion on these items." The segments involved in the Wednesday meeting at Pincher Creek were the Pincher Creek division, Pincher Creek Roman Catholic Separate School Dis- trict, Crowsnest Pass and Cardston. At Claresholm, the Willow Creek division and Comity of Vulcan teachers voted. Thursday, in Lethbridge, the County of Lethbridge, County of Warner, Cardston division, Barons Consolidated division, Picture Bude separate school and Coaldale separate school teachers voted. Friday, in Brooks, the division and County of Newell teachers voted. In Taber, the Taber division and Taber sep- arate school and Bow Island separate school teachers voted. Mr. Ackerman was quoted Friday as not knowing how long it will take for the board to set a date for the strike vote, indicating it could take several weeks. The main issue in the year- old dispute is working condi- tions. The union is asking that the school hoard consult with! teachers on the day-to-day op-; erations of the schools, not forj the power to run the schools, j Also on the list, is a salary increase of six to seven per cent a year fin1 a i con- tract. Huss Purdy, chairman of regional sub-com- miltuc, said all leathers will work up to th'j lime a strike ift called, if one is called. "Any chance of a settlement will be pursued by the ATA agent and the negotiating com- mittee.'1 Psych beds ready The 21 bed psychiatric unit !y for care and at the Lethbridge Municipal wcrk is expected to be corn- Hospital now is officially estab- in k, 0, weeks on lished.
