Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thimdoy, October 14, 1971 Danish gymnasts excellent in show ny LAKItV IIKNNUTT Stuff Writer The performance of the Dan- ish Gym Team is superb. Tlie entire program has .in aura of perfection seldom seen in gymnastic or even profes- sional acrobatic shows. The immense skill, co-ordina- tion and training present in the show was marred only by a poorly tuned piano it! the Leth- bridg'e Collegiate Institute gym- nasium. Each member is a star in his own right. There is not one outstanding performance. Each member displays unsurpassed enthusiasm toward his particu- lar place in the program. The tempo of the program is varied as demonstrations of Danish men's and women's physical education exercises and folk dances are presented with background music, often piano music played by Lone Hansen, a member of the team. The varied tempo seems merely to accentuate the con- stant motion of the team mem- bers- One soon begins to won- der how such a varied and grinding pace may be main- tained without the calibre of the performance being substan- tially decreased. The 13 woman members of the team perform wonderfully throughout the entire 17-part program, but are at their fem- inine best during the jazz gym- nastics routine. The Kl male members of the team demonstrate the Danish concept of masculine gymnas tics by at all limes being power ful, daring and decided in their actions. Their perform ances become most spectacu lar during the second demon- stration of vaulting and turn bling. Great mirth and even laugh- ter resulted during the folk costumed Danish dance demon- stration when the knit hats worn by the men were stolen by fellow dancers and then re- turn d as the dance continued. Deliberate or not, the shenanigans of the dancers greatly added to the audience's and apparently to their own enjoyment. The Danish Gym Team will present its final Lethbridge show in the LCI gymnasium I this evening at 8 o'clock.

NORTH PHONE 328-4441 By UON CALDWEL Staff Writer Tlie Southern Alberta School Authorities Association has [latly refused to give ground on the controversial consultation clause in negotiations with teachers in 18 rural districts in southern Alberta. The districts do not include Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, which are embroiled in a dis- pute of their own. Ray Clark, chairman of SASAA and president of the Al- berta School Trustees' Associa- tion, told a news conference Wednesday that SASAA believes ihe Alberta Teachers' Associa- tion will use a consultation clause as a springboard into a situation where the school boards cannot make policy changes without direct permis- sion from teachers. Mr. Clark claimed the origi- nal ATA proposal demanded the right for teachers to veto any proposed policy change. 'But now, they have watered it down in an effort to get a foot hi the door and have some-, thing to build said Mr. Clark. The original ATA proposal reads, in part: "A member board may im- plement any regulations which have been approved (by teach- without qualification, and those which have been approved subject to amendments accept- able to teachers." The present proposal asks that teachers he consulted by Spruce gall aphid treatment should start right away Spruce gall aphid, a condi- tion common to spruce ever- green trees in southern Alber- ta, can be treated effectively now, weather conditions per- mitting. The galls, which are caused by aphids and appear on the growing tips cf spruce trees, do not cause serious injury to the tree unless infestations are very heavy, said Murray Mc- Lelland, district agriculturist for the counties of Lethbridge and Warner. Youths remanded Two Lethbridge IB-year-olds were remanded in custody for one week to await a pre-sen- tencing report after they plead- ed guilty in Lethbridge magis- trate's court to possession of a stolen car. A third 16-year-old youth pleaded not guilty and was re- manded on cash bail for one week to await the setting of a trial date. He has not been able to raise bail. The auto, a late model Dat- sun, was stolen by a 13-year- old youth who found the keys left in the car's ignition by its owner. Spray control is not as easy as one might think, said Mr. McLelland, because while the aphids are in the gall the spray can't reach them. "The aphids must be spray- ed while outside the gall for any effective he said. "These times vary each year so the tree owner must link spraying times with clues ob- tained by observing the tree." In the spring, if a white cot- tony material appears on the tree, aphids are present, said Mr. McLelland. This is the egg stage. Spraying for the aphids should begin when the brown membrane over the new needle buds ruptures, with spray ap- plications every four days for 16 days using Malathion 50 per cent E.G. at one ounce per gal- lon of water, he said. In mid summer the galls dry, causing the needles to relax, re- suiting in many openings through which winged aphids emerge. The aphids go to an alter- nate host plant and then re- turn to the spruce tree to win- ter, said Mr. McLelland. "Spraying Malathion in mid- October will kill this overwin- tering stage if the spray is ap- plied when the temperature is higher than 60 he said. the board prior to making pol- icy changes. Mr. Clark said, 'consultation is something we have been practicing for years. 'But we're not going to put it on paper for the teachers to build on Mr. Clark said the original ATA proposal, if enacted, would throttle the effectiveness of school boards. "Ths boards would not be able to make policy changes without the approval of teach- ers they would be virtually teachers would control the education system." Mr. Clark said SASAA would not like to see a teachers' strike but he reiterated that the association will stand firm on not having a consultation clause in the agreement. "We don't like to see a strike we are not looking forward to it but if that is the only way to settle this thing, then I guess that's {lie way it will have to be." Mr. Clark said the associa- tion made a new offer to the teachers last Thursday. "We have come a long way on such things as pro rata, course payments, insurance and other things farther than we had to in some said Mr. Clark. "We've gone as. far as we can where money is concern- ed." Mr. Clark said the teachers have been offered salary in- creases of six per cent in the first year and 6.4 per cent in the second year. More city news on Page 5 o He said no word has been received from the ATA on the offer. "We've turned it over to the ATA what they have done with it, I don't Mr. Clark said. The teachers involved in the dispute have applied to the board of industrial relations for permission to conduct a strike vote.
