Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 1C THE U7HBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, October 6, 1970 Clark Cheesed Off With Suggestions On School System CALGARY (CP) Educa- tion Minister Robert Clark said Monday lie is "somewhat disappointed" in the quality of proposals made by commu nities for changes in the school system. "We haven't been getting the quality of innovative sugges- tions we hoped would be com- ing from the local school boards. "We're looking for ideas for improving or maintaining the qualilv of education in our schools or ways of making their operation more attractive from a financial point of view." The minister told a news con- ference the provincial budget provides 51 million for crea tive school programs operated by local authorities, but none of this has been allotted. The first distribution of funds may occur shortly, he said, and prospects are bright for more suggestions in the future. CRITICIZED TORIES He also criticized the posi- tion taken at the weekend by the Progressive Conserva tive party on school centralization. Contrary to what the Conser- vatives say, the education min- ister has no control over clos- ing of rural school, Mr. Clark said. "If you check the School Act passed at the last session of the legislature, it says the local U.S. Gas Lack Creates Boom In Alberta ROBERT CLARK Disappointed school board has the power to direct students to any school in their districts." The Conservatives made no effort to kill that section of the act during debate. "For a party which is con- cerned about providing more local autonomy, it seems strange that Mr. Lougheed wants the education minister to have this power to exercise over local school boards." EDMONTON (CP) A short- age of natural gas in the United States is expected to make 1970 a boom year for gas plant con- struction in Alberta. About 12 major plants are either being constructed or ex- panded now, several more are being planned and a number of smaller projects have been completed recently or are near- ing completion. The Alberta Bureau of Sta- tistics estimated recently that there was million worth of natural gas plant construc- tion in progress. Of this, about million worth will be com- pleted by the end of the year. NEW GAS PLANTS The bureau also estimated that during 1971 .gas plants valued at million will be constructed In addition, the bureau says another ?200 million worth of pipelines will be needed to han- dle gas being processed under existing permits and expanded export permits granted last week by the national energy board. An indication of how pressing i Hie need is lor more gas in the IU.S. can be taken from figures [released by Consolidated Pipe Co., the only unsuccess- tful applicant out of five which asked the Alberta Oil and Gas Conservation Board earlier this year for export permits. The firm already has paid Canadian producers -million in cash advances for natural gas discovered and placed under contract to Consolidated, says Herbert M. Sampson, Con- solidated president and a vice- president of its parent- com- pany, Northern Natural Gas Co. of Omaha, Neb. Another million ill ad- vances will be paid by the raid of next year. Mr. Sampson says that Con- solidated has placed more than million in orders with Ca- nadian manufacturers, vendors and contractors subject to re- ceiving export approval. Consolidated has had two large turbines constructed in Sherbrooke, Quo., and is wait- ing to take delivery. It also has a pipeline proposal which would employ construction workers a year, said Mr. Samp- son. Mr. Sampson says his firm will apply again in two weeks for permission to export 2.5 trillion cubic feet of natural I gas to the United States.
