8-TH6 LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Thuriday, October Gov't won't participate in new lottery scheme EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government will not participate in a Western Canada lottery scheme, but three major organizations in the province may sell tickets in Alberta. The lottery was first propos- ed as a joint venture among the governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia. Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation for Alberta, said discussion of the lottery scheme at a meeting of western provincial recreation ministers in Vic- toria this week was confined to representatives of the other three provinces. Alberta had withdrawn from the scheme following ob- jections from Alberta groups that the proposed lottery would restrict their fund- raising operations. THREE CONSIDERED The Edmonton Exhibition Board, the 1978 British Com- monwealth Games Founda- tion and the Calgary THE FINEST RETIREMENT AND RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY Wind toy. Holfwoy Trant-Ctnodo MMM mail Stampede Board are being considered as possible groups to sell the lottery tickets in Alberta. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia have scheduled a kick-off date of April 30 and have set a 000 first prize with total prizes between and It is not known if any Alberta participation in the lottery would be designed to replace lotteries now run by the Edmonton and Calgary ex- hibition boards, how the proceeds might be divided or even what year the Western Canada lottery might begin operations in Alberta. A commission, and in some cases the seller's fee from sales of lottery tickets issued by the Edmonton and Calgary boards revert to the charitable organisations which sell them. Meanwhile the Saskatchewan government has deep reservations about participating the proposed lottery, Premier Allan Blakeney said in Regina. Telephone service improved EDMONTON (CP) A million program to improve telephone service to rural Alberta will be complete Nov. 3, an Alberta Government Telephones spokesman said today. J. W. Doddgs, the com- pany's general manager, and Telephones Minister Roy Farran will celebrate comple- tion of the system at a ceremony in Strathmore, 30 miles east of Calgary, Nov. 3 at that time a Strathmore Farmer's Telephone will be linked to the system.

Mr. Levesque joked with the candidate for Papineau riding about his name saying that it could be a good omen in the Oct. election. Non-ops plead for wage boost OTTAWA (CP) Non-oper- ating railwayman made a plea Wednesday for wage in- creases totalling more than 30 per cent over two years as they presented final arguments before federal ar- bitrator Mr. Justice Emmett Hall. A call for a 67-cent-an-hour average increase in the first year and another 49 cents an hour in the second year of a proposed two-year agreement takes into account cost-of- living increases, a share of national productivity and a catch-up factor to workers with sikilar jobs in other in- with similar jobs in other in- dustries. a national strike this summer, had hourly wages of at expiration of the last contract on Dec. 31, 1972 They were given immediate and retroactive pay increases of 34 cents an hour by Parlia- ment when MPs passed a bill forcing them back to their jobs. Increases guaranteed by Parliament in the strike- ending legislation would give the workers porters, maintenance men, roadhouse employees and raise resulting in a pay average of starting July 1, 1974. In a paper presented to the arbitration hearings, union ne- gotiators said the justifiable pay increase in the first year of a contract would include 23 cents for catch-up, 12.6 cents for a share of increased productivity and 31.2 cents to make up the cost-of-living. The second year should show a national productivity share of 14 cents and a cost-of- Hving boost of nearly 35 cents, they argued. That would bring the average hourly wage to about at Jan 1, 1973 Union lawyer Maurice Wright said the plea by the which include Canadian National and CP they cannot pay is a red herring that should not be taken into account in ar- bitration any more than the cost of diesel oil. Mr. Wright also suggested that Mr. Justice Hall set out some guides for negotiation of a job security plan that would protect jobs and earnings of rail workers with a certain amount of seniority. The parties could submit any unresolved issues in negotiations to Mr. Justice Hall for final arbitration, he said The railways will likely complete their presentation on the non-ops before Mr. Justice Hall today. FIRM FINED OTTAWA (CP) "That's a lot of bananas." said provin- cial court Judge Thomas Swabey when the Crown asked him to impose the maximum fine on a suburban Ne- pean township fruit market for opening on Sunday. He fin- ed the firm for contraven- ing a township bylaw Oil plant job plan revealed EDMONTON (CP) The country-wide network of Canada Manpower Centres will be used to issue informa- tion on job opportunities dur- ing the construction of the million Syncrude plant near Fort Mcmurray, Alta. In a joint statement Wednesday, provincial Labor Minister Bert Hohol and federal Manpower Minister Robert Andras said the centres will be used for referral because both Alberta and Ottawa are concerned that job seekers may travel to Fort McMurray in north- eastern Alberta before know- ing whether jobs are available. "Such an influx of transient workers will cause serious problems because there is a shortage of accommodations of all kinds in Fort Mcmurray, including hotel and motel facilities and this situation is likely to continue for some the statement said. The manual work force this winter likely will not exceed 250. The ministers said when there are employment oppor- tunities that cannot be filled locally or from within the province, that information will be made available to Canada Manpower Centres across the country.
