Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October 14, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 School boards reject teacher memorandum EDMONTON (CP) The] five boards which comprise the Elk Island Regional School Authorities' Association have rejected a memorandum of agreement to which their 674 teachers had agreed a week ago- No reason was given. Joe Berlando, chief welfare officer for the Alberta Teach- ers' Association, termed it "an extremely disgusting turn of events." He said that boards in the region will agree to one thing one day, then reject it the next. There were reports Wednes- day that at least three boards had favored the memorandum City of the poor NEW YORK (AP) New York City's welfare rolls rose by parsons in August. The department of sccial services reported Tuesday there were New Yorkers on wel- fare, 15 per cent of the city's population. which includid a consultat ion clause. The clause, an item of dispute in some bargaining re- gions, would require each school board to notify teachers of any policy changes affecting working conditions. The teachers will not decide on their next move until they find out why the boards reject- ed the memorandum, Mr. Ber- lando said. Meanwhile, no progress has been reported in the strike by 850 teachers in eight districts north and west of Edmonton which has left students without classes.

J. Benson was un- sure Wednesday whether the government still is in default on payments under the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act to the Ca- nadian Wheat Board. Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the board, told the Com- mons a S62.t-million cheque covering the 1970-71 crop year was sent to the board Wednes- day. Arnold Peters Timis- kaming) asked whether the gov- ernment had also made monthly as the act since the last crop year ended July 31. Finance Minister E. J. Benson said he was unsure but would look into it. Under the act, the govern- ment makes payments for wheat in excess of 178 million bushels held in commercial storase. The board distributes the pajinents to wheat farmers. The "payments were held up by the government, amid oppo- sition cries of law-breaking, while it tried to get substitute legislation through parliament. Commons opposition and a lawsuit by four Saskatchewan farmers made the government abandon its substitute legisla- tion and make the payment. BELIEVES IN PRINCIPAL Mr. Lang told reporters out- side the House that he still strongly believes in the princi- ple of the stabilization bill that was to have replaced the re- serves act. But he would have to consult the cabinet before announcing the next move to try to get sta- bilization legislation through the House. The reserves act was "almost a universally-abhorred a c and the government would be proposing changes "before very long." He was asked if the dispute over the and the non payment of reserves-act had been turned into a political issue linked to the Nov. 8 federal byelection in the fed- eral riding of AssLniboia. "Yes, he replied. The opposi- ti had turned the debate into a filibuster. "The farmers will see thev don't really need many more members like that in the House." CALLS IT BLACKMAIL NDP Loader David Lewis told reporters the government had tried blackmail by including a ont-shot SlOO-million payment in the stabilization program. It had been authoritarian and dishonest for the government to try to persuade the four fann- ers to stop their lawsuit. "I think Mr. Lang is a shabby person in the way he's dealing j with this Mr. Lewis said. The government had not had the guts to defend its lawless- ness in court. So it had with- drawn the stabilization bill and j paid the reserves-act money, he charged. I Mr. Lewis said fanners would j have received less under the stabilization bill over the next five years than under the exist- ing reserves act. OAT YEAR. GOOD WET SPOTS SMOTHERED OUT.
