Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 29, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 21 Public trustees support liquor rollback resolution The Lethbridge public school board decided Tuesday to support a resolution calling for an age rollback for the legal purchase of liquor to be presented to Alberta trustees for their support next month. The resolution to be presented to the annual convention of the Alberta School Trustees Association in Edmonton Nov. 4 to 6 calls for the minimum age for the legal purchase of liquor for off premise use be incresed from 18 to 20 years. In a letter to the local board, the County of Vulcan school committee says it is seeking the support of other school trustees so a stronger case for the age rollback can be made to the provincial government. "We have a very real and pressing moral responsibility to attempt, in some very direct way to stem the increasing flow of alcohol that is reaching the to 17-year age group and leading them on to eventual the committee states in its letter. The committee believes the lowering of the age from 21 to 18 years in 1971 has caused the increased use of liquor among young people under 18 years of age. The Lethbridge Separate School Board indicated in a September meeting that it would also support the Vulcan motion during the ASTA convention. In supporting the motion, Chairman Dorothy Beckel suggested united action by the school trustees might be the beginning of a new solution to the liquor problem among the younger age group. Trustee Doug Card pointed out that approval of the 'Word of good faith' binds deserter to job CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) Military deserters in public-, service jobs under President Ford's conditional clemency plan would likely face no criminal action if they quit, a- military spokesman says. Marine Corps Lieut. Dale Baird, information officer at the Joint Processing Centre at Fort Benjamin Harrison in In- diana, said Tuesday that only "his word of good faith" binds a deserter to his job. Baird said such persons would not be subject to prose- cution but added: "If we get thousands who quit their jobs, something will have to be done." Baird also said less than one-third of the deserters eligible for con- ditional amnesty have in- dicated an interest in the program. And of the calling, only about one- sur- rendered to authorities, he said. "I look for the big push to come in Baird said. "A lot of people in Canada are holding off" to see what treat- ment is given to those who ac- cept amnesty. The offer expires Jan. 31. After that, those who refuse the terms face criminal charges. resolution is "one way of tell- ing young people "that it is not good to consume alcohol beverages at a young age. Trustee heg Turner was cautious about .endorsing the resolutions because he believes school boards should not involve themselves in "fighting matters" that lie outside their limits of educational concern. In expressing opposition to the motion, Mr. Turner pointed out that he didn't "want it to appear as if I sup- port" the present legislation that "allows 18-year-olds to legally consume and purchase liquor. Trustee Doug McPherson disagreed with the suggestion that the liquor age rollback isn't a school board matter. "I believe the use and mis- use" of alcoholic beverages falls within the limits of school board concern, he stated. He pointed to a recent situa- tion in the city where a child's (under 16 years old) health, was harmed through the abuse of 'alcohol obtained from a bootlegger. The proposed legislative change would allow 18-and-19- year-olds to consume liquor in licensed premises. Wheat board trying to expand Japan trade JUDY M. COOPER Girl missing since Sept. 9 Lethbridge city police are asking the assistance of the public in locating a 13 year old city girl missing since Sept. 9. Judy Marie Cooper, 82313th St. S., left home about 10 p.m. on Sept. 9 and has not been seen since by her mother. She is described as being five feet four inches tall, of slight build, and having blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a purple suede coat, beige slacks, a navy sweater with tied sleeves and a navy head scarf with a white pattern. Anyone who's seen this girl or knows of her whereabouts may contact the city police. WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board will be trying to increase its share of the rapidly-expanding Japanese feed-grain market when it sponsors a feed-grain symposium in Japan next month. About 50 Canadians, including scientists, wheat board officials, industry and other officials will attend the symposium Nov. 27-30 at Hakone. Cam Brown, director of the wheat board's feed grain market development, said Japan's total imports of feed grains in 1970 amounted to about 12 million tons, or about 450 million bushels. Of this about tons, or 40 million bushels, was Canadian barley. Mr. Brown said the Japanese market is said to be increasing about 6.8 per cent annually and the feed grain imports by 1980 should reach about 20 million tons. If Canada is able to main- tain its 10 per cent of that market through the expansion period, the amount of grain in- volved would be staggering, he said, with the percentage amounting to 80 million bushels by 1980. Then, he said, one big ques- tion would be whether Canada could fill the demand and at what price. Canada presently produces about 500 million bushels of barley annually and uses about 350 million bushels domestically. Mr. Brown said the bulk of the feed grain used in Japan is corn from the United States, but (he Japanese are interested in diversification of their supply sources. Japan is already one of the wheat bord's main customers of bread wheat, taking about 55 million bushels a year. sunburst ceramics limited RETAIL OUTLET CONTINUES SUNBURST CERAMICS is open every Thursday and Friday evening from 4 pm to 9 pm offer- ing many of its fine products DIRECT TO YOU.
