Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, October 18, 1971 The Chinook Pensioners and Senior Citizens Organization, affiliated with the Provincial and National Pensioners and Senior Citizens, is having a Halloween Social- The meeting and social will x in the Civic Sports Centre at p.m. on Oct. 20. Special Halloween treats and lunch will be served. Everyone is to wear a Halloween cos- tume, and a fine will be levied on those who do not dress up. Bingo will be played. Tickets will be sold for a trip o Cut Bank, Montana planned for the future. A report will be given on the National Convention of Pension- ers and Senior Citizens recent- ly held in Winnipeg. t THE POTTER'S CRAFT This figurine, about eight inches high, is a product of the Oldman River Potters' Guild. It was created by Ethel Dunn, one of a dozen regular members who work in the guild headquarters in the Bowman Arts Centre. Some mem- bers, uncertain about the figurine's gender, have dubbed it Local potters hard at work on their professional growth It's a thoroughly messy busi- ness, but if you don't mind get- ting your hands dirty it's the kind of activity that has its own particular satisfactions. Mrs. Rena Whitmore thinks it is great "a lot of hard work, but very relaxing." Mrs. Whitmore is president of the Oldman River Potters' Guild. She and her fellow pot- ters meet every Monday night in their room in the basement of the Bowman Arts Centre to exchange ideas and work on their hobby. Members also have access to the equipment at other times Canadian worker needs .50 an hour for comfort The Canadian working per- son should earn at least per hour to survive and per hour to enjoy life's occasional amenities, says the Canadian Labor Congress. The Alberta Federation of Labor urges federal acceptance of the minimum wage proposal and will, in the new year, pre- sent a similar brief to the new provincial cabinet. The current federal mini- mum wage is per hour compared with the provincial minimum of in Alberta. The federation's brief is cur- rently undergoing study and preparation. The Alberta Labor Act pegs the minimum hourly wage for workers 18 years old and over at up from the mini- mum before October 1970. The act also states any em- ployee called upon to work must be paid for a minimum of four hours work. Not included in the act are minimum wages for some cate- gories of workers s u c h as do- mestic help and farm labor, leaving the amount paid to the FRAME STYLES FROM AROUND-THE- WORLD discretion of the employer. "A disappointing situation" exists in the area of student labor, said a Lethbridge Can- ada Manpower official. Under current provincial leg- islation an employer is not re- quired to pay an 18-year-old or over, part-time student em- ployee more than SI per hour. A younger student, can earn as little as 85 cents per hour as outlined in the Labor Act. Broken down, this means the university or high school stu- dent could earn as little as per month or less, depending on age, when working a 20-hour week, four weeks per month. This compares with the full- lime bread winner's minimum earning ability of about per month or about per year before taxes. An individual working on a farm or in a household works for whatever wage he can get or is agreed upon. Stores to give new car, trip Downtown mer- chants now have entry forms available for their Dec. 24 auto- mobile give away contest. Top prize will be a brand- new 1972 Firenza. The mer- chants are also giving on Dec. 18 a trip for two to Jamaica. Contest entry forms can be picked up at downtown stores. W I. (Bill) Kurgan THANK YOU! I wish to thank the many workers ond in particular the who sup- ported me at the polls. A special thank you to the business- men and Individuals who contributed to the civic government association campaign. and individuals drop in to work on their own projects. The Monday group sessions are de- voted primarily to upgrading members' techniques. Things are quieter than they have been in recent years. Guild members decided to take a year off from teaching and concentrate this year on pro- fessional growth and the ex- ploration of new ideas. Work- shops for both adults and chil- dren have been cancelled. Mrs. Whitmore said they will likely resume next September. It is part of the philosophy of a guild to teach, to pass on to others the knowledge possessed by the members, she said. One of the reasons for cut- ting out the teaching sessions was the fact that they were growing beyond tile capabili- ties of the guild. Space, parti- cularly for the children's class- es, was at a premium. At one point up to 40 chil- dren were squeezing into a room that could barely hold 20. Although Mrs- Whitmore ad- mits there have been some space problems, she sizes that the guild is "very thankful" for the facilities they have in the Bowman centre. The rent is reasonable, a ma- jor reason why fees hi the guild have been kept a year, although they are being increased to Jan. 1. The guild is a member of Lethbridge's Allied Arts Coun- cil and was among the first groups to move into the Bow- man centre when it opened in 1965. The Guild had started in 19G3 in a room at the Civic Sports Centre. Their present facilities have an appropriately "live d-in" look and room for the potter's wheels and three kilns, all bought and paid for by the members. The local group is one of sev- eral in the district. Others can be found in many of the sur- rounding towns, and the guild makes its facilities available to them when provincial cultural development branch workshops are scheduled. The dozen or so regulars who are active right now in tho guild are a nucleus of dedi- cated craftsmen intent upon re- fining their techniques and en- suring that the traditions of the craft are kept alive. Their annual display and those people in the community who want to take a look at the products of their ef- forts-will be held Dec. 5 to 12 in the main gallery of the Bow- man Arts Centre. New anti-pollution group gets Lethbridge support i By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Government and industry in Alberta may, in the future, be confronted by a politically pow- erful anti pollution group, if it engages in environment spoil- ing activities. Pollution Control Southern Alberta has become an active member of the Canadian Asso- ciation on Human Environment, the only federally recognized political anti pollution lobby- ing group in Canada. PC-SA will in, weeks to come, attempt to form the core of a provincial group with power to effectively combat pollution and its originators. A pollution conscious new provincial cabinet has indicat- ed a desire to do more to com- bat pollution in this province. The provincial department of the environment has asked PC- SA to nominate three candi- dates for the Environmental Conservation Authority which theoretically has the power to investigate environmental grie- vances against both govern- ment and industry. It will not, however, have the authority to enforce changes but will act as an independent advisor and public informer. PC-SA has also been asked to nominate a candidate for the Citizens' Advisory Committee on Environmental Matters. Chinook Pensioners plan Halloween costume party All members, new members, visitors and friends are wel- come. If transportation is need- ed arrangements can be made through the secretary at 327- 3264, by Tuesday morning. Bob Garner speaks tonight Lethbridge's newly formed Bible Baptist Church will be bringing in Reverend Bob Gar- ner front the United States for two cvenir.g meetings in the Civic Sporte Centre. The meetings today and Tuesday m Rciom 4 of the Civic Sports Centre begin at p.m. Today two members of PC-KA were to meet with the environ- ment minister, his officials, and with members of other provincial anti pollul 1 o n groups to discuss possible changes. Professor Paul Lewis, of the University of Lethbridge and David Balfour a biology stu- dent si the university were to at- tend the meeting in Edmonton. PC-SA has been asked to sub- mit information to the Cana- dian Association on Human En- vironment which will present the Canadian position on envir- onmental policy at the 1072 World Environmental Confer- ence sponsored by the United Nations in Stockholm, Sweden. The PC-SA fall general meet- ing will be held in Lethbridge soon to elect a new executive and form committees to deal with various pollution problems in southern Alberta. Among the action platforms expected to be adopted by the group is a protest to the fed- eral government about a 10- year contract it signed with the United Kingdom which will vir- tually turn the Suffield Re- search Station into a bomb and tank range, PC-SA says. They say the National Pro- vincial Parks Association had understood that once the area was no longer used for re- search it would be turned into a grassland park the ecolo- gical balance of grassland is very fragile. A petition protesting the planned nuclear blast on Am- chitka Island in the Aleutians, already signed, will be sent to Prime Minister Trudeau and U.S. President Richard Nixon.

Three tuberculosis cases reported near Lethbridge A disease thought to be al- most eradicated in southern Al- berta, tuberculosis, attacked three people in the Barons-Eur- cka Health Unit during 1970. The district lies to the east of Lethbridge. Marion Murray, the unit's se- nior nurse said in her annual report two residents and one j transient were admitted to the j Baker Memorial Sanatorium in Calgary with TB. Thorough testing programs are carried out on all contacts of known cases, school bus dri- vers, school personnel and through tuberculin tests done on students from Grades 1 to 9. Last fall, 122 cases of measles were reported to the health unit compared with six cases the year previous. Half the reported cases oc- curred in the county of Leth- bridge with an unnamed Dutch religious reform group which does not allow immunization, accounting for 38 rep o r t e d cases. The new Corolla Coupe. Its practically beautiful. A practical person buys a practical car simply because it's practical. The fact that the car may be ugly doesn't seem to bother him. But it bothered us. "Why can't a practical car be we asked. And then along came our Coupe. The Coupe is every bit as practical as the ugliest practical car. Only it's not ugly it's beautiful. The steering wheel is simulated wood grain. The bucket seats are high-back and fully reclining. The floor is carpeted. The glass is tinted. The interior is padded. The ride is quiet. From a practical point of view it gets up to 35 miles per gallon from a powerful 73 hp engine. It has front disc brakes and an electric rear window defroster. It's big enough for a small family, small enough to park easily and priced to fit into the neatest budget. So now, a practical person can buy a practical car simply because it's beautiful.
