Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta WtdnMday, October 2, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Dateline Alberta Fate rests with Ottawa EDMONTON (CP) The fate of two Chileans hangs on their application to the federal government for official status as political refugees. Gabriel Pizarro, a former dancer with Chile's national dance company, and Rolando Huerta, a 37-year-old former newspaper owner in Chile, are both in the city on tourist visas. Because of recent regulations forbidding im- migrants to apply for landed immigrant status from within Canada the (wo are seeking asylum as political refugees. If they get that recognition they can then apply to stay in Canada as landed immigrants. Robin Denton, president of the Edmonton chapter of the Committee for Solidarity with Democratic Chile, said today that the tourist visas of both men have expired. No escaping jury duty EDMONTON (CP) "We can't allow the kind of attitude developing in Toronto to creep Mr. Justice David McDonald said in issuing, an Alberta Supreme Court warrant for the arrest of a man who failed to appear after being summoned for jury duty. In issuing the warrant for John Staroba of Edmonton, Mr Justice McDonald said that in Ontario, where the jury system is used more, about 50 per cent of prospective jurors don't appear. Murder clues sought MORLEY (CP) RCMP are hoping an autopsy today will provide more clues to the murder of Lyie Clifford Labelle, 27, of Morley, who was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head Monday night. Police said they have a male suspect in custody but have not released any further details Student ratio exceeded EDMONTON (CP) About sixty per cent of the city's public school classrooms have more students than the max- imum of 20 recommended by the Alberta Teachers' Association an ATA report shows. A survey of Alberta schools showed the present student teacher ratio for the province was about 22. But N P. Hrynyk, acting ATA executive secretary, said "teachers are frustrated by present class size. They can't carry on the kind of teaching process that should be carried on." Edmonton short of land EDMONTON (CP) There is an insufficient inventory of land in Edmonton to meet the needs of manufacturers and other mdustnal concerns, says a report from the city's new real estate and housing department. The report, in response to a list of questions by Aid. Cec Purves, said "the most recent trend for industrial land users is to require larger parcels than they nave previously ask- ed for, and this can cause a rapid disappearance of any in- dustrial land inventory." Subdivided industrial land which was selling at to an acre three years ago now is selling for to an acre, it added. UNITED MOTORS CO, LTD.

"Serving you over a quarter Century" 302 3rd South Phone 327-2805 Public school board abolishes 'Catholic' fee EDMONTON (CP) The public school board has open- ed its doors to all students resident in the city, abolishing a non-resident fee under which ratepayers who declared themselves Catholic for tax purposes had to pay to send their children to a public school. Board chairman Jim Falconer said Tuesday the board made the decision this summer as part of a program designed to give students the opportunity to take courses they found desirable. Mr. Falconer said in an interview that he didn't think there was "any particular reason" for the decision, which was made before a re- cent Calgary case in which a newly-arrived Catholic couple objected to non-resident fees charged by the public school board in that city and took the issue to the Alberta Human Rights Commission. The commission ruled that the fee was discriminatory. Under an agreement with the Calgary board, the Catholic couple will pay the non- resident fee on a monthly basis, with the money being returned if the commission's ruling is upheld. Rich Vivone, com- munications officer with the Edmonton Separate School Board, said the separate board has not changed its policy of charging a non- resident fee when students of city parents who have declared themselves public school supporters for tax pur- poses aitend a separate school. The public school non- resident fee still applies to students commuting to school in Edmonton from a residence outside the city and to students sponsored by a non- Edmonton school board to at- tend a public school in the city The public school non- resident fee is or per credit, whichever is less, for senior high school students, for junior high and for elementary. The separate school non- resident fee is for senior high school students, for junior high and for elementary grades. PORTS OF ENTRY opening and closing- times: Carway 7 a.m. to 10 p m.
