Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta iB-iHt LEiHBRIuGE HERALD uctober 4, Trustees agree to meet city on crossing issue By JIM LOZERON Herald Staff Writer The separate school board Wednesday gave instructions to its secretary-treasurer to arrange a meeting between the city and school board in an attempt to resolve the 5th Avenue S, and Mayor Magrath crossing issue. N. L. Heilander was in- structed to arrange a meeting with the city "at their con- venience The board was responding to a letter from council in- viting the board to arrange a meeting through the city manager's office, and follows a letter sent to council re- questing a r e port on procedures being used in allowing students to cross the intersection. The issue flared up in June when parents backed by the public and separate school boards, went before council to ask for a pedestrian overpass Council believes an over- pass is expensive and imprac- lical and not needed at current traffic levels. The school board maintains that (lie current practice of stationing a policeman at the crosswalk is an unsatisfactory method of allowing students to cross the intersection. In another move, the board approved a recommendation bv superintendent Ralph Mimsl to direct its staff to make specifications lor the further development of the Assumption School building. According to a report presented to the board, im- provements to the building are needed to alleviate inade- quate facilities there. "The facilities really need some development." said Mr. Ilimsl. "The physical educa- tion teacher makes do storing mats in the main lover of the school. He has no shower." In his report Mr. Hinisl says the principal has adapted the school nurses' room to his use with his secretary working about 40 yards from his room. And. in addition to the lack of physical education facilities, the science room and library are housed in two partially- completed basement rooms.

Mr. Peers said a lot of people, including the general public, did not cross the picket lines. He said the picketing slowed down the operation of departments in the building. An emplovee in the motor vehicle's branch said the picket lines didn't really affect the oftice although at the time of the picketing there was a slack period followed by a btisv period after the picket lines were removed. Warden of the correctional institute. L. J Fisher, said the picket outside the jail had no effect on its operation because pickets were there for only a short time.

Mr. Peers said he expected the late guards would be paid for the hour they missed. The g ua rds and the tradesmen, as well as all provincial employees, are members of the Civil Service Association However, it's only the tradesmen who are upset They are in strong disagree- ment with the government's job reclassification which ends a previous policy of bas- ing their wages on the hourly rate in the construction in- dustry. The tradesmen are r e s p o n s i b I e f or -all maintenance on provincial hiiildings. Mr. Peers said they would continue harassing the government with picket lines outside their buildings until Bert Hohol. minister of labor, explained the government's action. Lethbridge tradesmen are responsible for all govern- ment buildings south of Claresholm. Their picketing follows similar action in Calgary and Kdmonton Meanwhile Labor Minister Bert Hohol Wednesday asked CSA to communicate to the government the grievances of the striking tradesmen. Mr. Hohol said in an inter- view the government was aware that the major reason lor the picket lines around government buildings was dis- satisfaction with job reclassification. But the last time the government received any of- ficial notice of dissatisfaction was last fall, shortly after the reclassification took place, he added. trustees Frank Peta. Mr. Ilimsl said two Grade 5 classes at the school have the heaviest enrolment of any elementary classrooms in the district. Mr. Peta. vice-chairman of the board, moved that a report be prepared and presented to the minister of education on the lack of a cafeteria at Catholic Central High School. Mr. Peta told Education Minister Lou Hyndman during the cabinet tour in September it was ridiculous that in a school of students there wasn't a cafeteria. In other business, the board approved the purchase and in- stallation of storage facilities for gasoline-powered equip- ment and petroleum products at an estimated expenditure ol The lack of storage taeilities "has raised con- siderable complaint from the fire inspectors during annual inspections." a report said. The board also approved a recommendation by Mr. Ilimsl that the goal of the French program be the crea- tion of a facility which would enable students to speak, un- derstand, read and write French spontaneously.

Drug pusher jailed 4 years An 18-year-old Lethbridge man. whose trial on a charge of breaking and entering was adjourned Wednesday, was to- dav sentenced to four years in penitentiary on a separate charge ot trafficking in drugs A review Pianist Troup well received E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.) DENTAL LAB LTD. 204 MediCdl Dental Bldg. Phone 327-656! By PAT ORCHARD Malcolm Troup. a pianist from the Guildhall School of Music. London. England, gave a well-received concert at the Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday evening. The program began with a performance of Liszt's Prelude and Fugue on the Name of B-A-C-H. This piece presents a challenge, not only to virtuosity, but a much more challenging one to in- terpretive prowess. The verve and animation, as well as the emotional force of the com- position left one with a feeling of breathiessness. However, the grandeur, spaciousness and nobility of the music seem scarcely to have occurred to him as this piece needs a symphonic organ to tell its full communicative tale. The next number was Chopin's Sonata No. 3. Mr. Troup conveyed the maestoso sweep of Chopin's proud, aristocratic spirit in the open- ing movement. He managed to take the brief and brilliant scherzo up to tempo and similarly presented an un- usual profundity of feeling to DR. R. S. FABBI OPTOMETRIST 314 8th Street South APPOINTMENTS PHONE 327-3331 the meditative character of the Largo The [male was delightfully vivacious, yet one had the 'feeling that it was the pianist's sell-indulgent brilliance that tended to monopolize our attention rather than the thoughts and I eel ings of the composer. The pianist went on to play Messiaen's Le Traquct Rieur. Mr. Troup's portraiture of the bird in its natural habitat was musically convincing. He proved acutely sensitive to Messiaen's seemingly endless variety of pitches, timbres and dynamics. The ingenuity ot his approach, without recourse to modern gim- mickry, was the highlight of the evening, as never for a moment did he allow for one's attention to wander. The second half of the program began with Ravel's Valses Nobles et Sentimen- tales. The artist was very much aware of the nobility and sentimentality of the title. His handling of the various w a 117. e s was most i m aginative. He drew an almost dancing poetry from the notes, ye! at the same time managed to convey the music's force and pungency in a most attractive way. The evening concluded with Debussy's Joyeuse. Mr. Troup was obviously more in- spired by keyboard sen- sationalism than by Debussy. However, one could not help but enjoy the technical capabilities of the artist as he rose to moments of heighten- ed excitement in the climaxes ol the piece, yet managed to convey the seductive phrasing of the melody to periection.
