Would work to reduce it against foreign ownership By GREG McINTYHK Herald Staff Writer All four Lethbridge candi- dates in Monday's election have pledged to work for itronger legislation to reduce Joreign control of the Canadian economy, says Bob Tarlcck, jCthbridge chairman for the Committee for an Independent Canada. INTERVIEWED The four candidates were questioned in a C1C question- naire and in an interview to be .elcvised at p.m. Wednes- day on Channel 2, cablevision. Mr. Tarleck said in a pre- pared statement that "while the CIC is encouraged by the keen interest candidates ap- peared to hold in the survival of. Canada, it is nevertheless disappointed that the candi- dates have not more fully thought out their policies and proposals." While candidates seem more Council accepts in damage from contractor City council has agreed to ac- er. cept in damages from the secondary sewage treat- ment plant builders to cover Juvenile charged in break-ins A Lcthbridge Juvenile has been charged with four counts o! theft following a city police investigation of break-ins into four homes last week. Police allege the 15-year-old Is responsible for thefts which resulted in tire loss of about SJ68 cash, three 40 ounce bottles of liquor and an undetermined amount of damages caused by his entries. The charges against the youth resulted from break-ins to (he homes of Earl Jensen, 821 14th St. S.; Ahmet Bajrak- tarevie, CIO 20th St. S.; William Rea, 613 !8lh St. S. and George Wilson, Gil I7lh St. S. the cost of delays in complet- ing the project. The initial assessment, which the contractor, Laing Construc- tion, disputed was Negotiations between the city and the contractor culminated in a tentative agreement that the would retain the and refund to the build- in a letter to council, City Manager Tom Nutting said if Ihe city went to court to try and get the full amount, much of the difference could be lost in costs. At the council meeting, he said the city could possibly lose (he full amount, if the judgement went in favor of the contractor. Aldermen Vera Ferguson, Vaughan Hembroff and Bill Kergan opposed the resolution to accept the lesser amount Aid. Ferguson said the con- tractor allows for such things as delays in its estimates. "I would like to see the cily on AUMA delegates arriving the winning awhile." The contract side once in called for a S300 per-day penalty payment by the contractor for each day on the job past completion date, Sept. 1, 1071. The ?4.5 million plant began operation in Janu- ary, 1572. Bylaw puts control of dogs owners bylaw pulling Ihe respon- sibility for the control of dogs in the lap of their owners was passed by city cotmcil Monday. The new law established a flat annual licence fee and becomes effective January 2, 1973. City manager Tom Nutting's request that a higher fee be charged lo owners of unspayed female dogs was rejected. The proposed perpetual li- cence fee and charge to persons owning three or more ogs will not be in the bylaw. Blind persons can register lieir dogs free of charge.

Hotel step closer to expansion Mayors and councillors from across the provinces began ar- riving in the city today for the 66th annual Alberta Urban Mu- nicipalities Association conven- tion. More than 550 persons, in- cluding delegates spouses, are expected for (he three-day con- ference to be held at the Holi- day Inn. Ninety-six resolutions will be discussed and either rejected or passed on for the provincial government's deliberation and possible legislation. Most significant, according to AUMA executive secretary Er- e Newman, is consideration the Farran report on pro- ncial-municipal financing. That report recommends us- g ?31 million of the mil- on which now goes to the mu- cipalities in the form of rants to pay for the mu- nicipalities' share of hospital xpenses and social develop- ment programs, among other hings. Business sessions start Wed- esday. aware of the independence is- sue than candidates did in loos, "what is needed now is a great deal more serious thought about how the situation can be corrected. This means they will have to go beyond generalities to specific Instanc- es." Hal Hoffman, New Demo- cratic Party candidate, and Ken Hurlburt, Progressive Conserv- ative, took the strongest stands, he said. CONCERNED Mr. Hoffman was concerned that foreign-controlled corpor- ations were able to use Canadi- an money to purchase control of Canadian industries, said Mr. Tarleck, head of the lang nage arts division of Wilson Junior High School. ''Mr. Hoffma- suggested tha in luture all foreign investmen should be screened by the gov- he said. Mr. Hurlburt suggested in- centives rather than regulations to repatriate the Canadian ec- onomy. HEVIKW Mr.Hurlburt said Canadians should have 51 per cent own- ership of corporations liere and should develop more manufac- turing industry. Andy Russell, the Liberal can- didate said while foreign In- vestment in Canada should be subject to government review, foreign ownership is already be- companics under tightly con-1 rolled situations, while Mr. foffman said resource comuan-! es should not get tax benefits. "All the candidates opposed the present tax concessions granted to Time magazine and Reader's Digest, though for dif- ferent said Mr. Tar- leck. 'Mr. Hurlburt was surprised to learn that two American magazines were granted such concessions and thought situation should be corrected. "Mr. Hoffman called the sit- uation a national disgrace. Mr. Russell suggested that both magazines were sen-ing a use- ful function in Canada. He ap- peared to feel that the best sol- ution would be removal of all barriers in the publication sec- tors so that U.S. and Can- adian magazines could cross the border unhindered."

Council passed a bylaw allowing hotel development in certain parts of the cily not previously designated for such use.

TILL 9 P.M.) Plastic milk bottles 110 problem here A move lo eliminate the use of plastic milk containers in Edmonton will not affect Lcth- bririge milk users. Pressure from public health authorities prompted Edmon- ton's three largest dairies to eliminate the use of plastic milk containers gradually and return to glass nu'lk bottles. Al Wiggins, manager of Sil- venvood Dairies Ltd. in Lcth- bridge, siiicl no plastic contain- ers are in use in the ciiy. Local customers have Die choice of glass or coardboard containers. "Mr. Russell said he woulc! like to ree less foreign control in our economy, especially in our resource industries, but thought the answer lay in en- couraging Canadian investors to participate ir. the growth of the economy, not in govern- ment regulations." Social Credit candidate Keith Hancock said he would urge the government to create a favorable climate for Canadian investment, said Mr. Tarleck. OPPOSED "Like Mr. Russell, he oppos- ed compulsion. Mr. Hancock said one method to increase Canadian participation in the economy would be to withdraw Canadian Savings Bonds from the market." The candidates disagreed about the impact of branch plants on the Canadian econ- omy, said Mr. Tarleck. "Mr. Hurlburt and Mr. Hoffman both felt the branch plant econ- omy interfered with research and development and the ex- pansion of manufacturing facil- ities." "Neither Mr. Russell or Mr. Hancock felt tlie problem to be serious, however, and Mr. Han cock pointed out that branch plants provide jobs for many Canadians." All four candidates felt some- thing should be done about the purchasing of land by non- Canadians. "Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Hurlburt both oppossed the sale of Crown land to non- Canadians. Mr. Hancock, how- ever, indicated that he would not like to see government tell people whether they could buy land or not." DISAGREKD There was also disagreement about tax policy, said Mr. Tar- leck. "Mr. Russell defended the ex- isting practice of granting tax easements for extreme risk ventures. Mr. Hoffman, on the The University of Lethbridge has received a letter from the Universities Commission "pro- posing" that the university in- troduce a shorter degree pro- gram in arts and science. Dr. Owen Holmes, U of L vice president said the com- mission is suggesting a 30- course degree introduced to go along with the 40 course degree program. He said it would he incorrect to talk of the proposal in terms of three or four year programs as far as the U of L is concerned be- cause the university operates on a semester system which theoretically removes the time factor. "We regard the letter as a proposal that the university CATTLE FEEDERS MEETING All cattle feeders of southern Alberta arc requested to meet Wednesday nt 8 p.m. in the 70S Wing Building at Kenyon Fide to discuss the implementation of the new beef-grading system A turnout of all cattle feed- ers is requested for this impoi'' tant meeting.

While declining to elaborate on the content of the letter, Dr. Holmes neither confirmed nor denied that there was any financial threat implied in tha commission's letter. The University of Calgary also received a letter from tha commission this week staling that unless the university of- fers a tlrree year arts and cience degree program in ad- ilion to its four year pro- rarn, it will receive no grants or those students In the fourth ear. There are some financial triplication involved." Dr. lolmes said. Asked to be more specific, Dr. Holmes said, "I don't fed am authorized to release the elter." Dr. Bill Beckel, president o[ he U of L, was out of town and not available for comment. Dr. Holmes said the idea of three year degree program at the U of L has been under study for about a year and a final report is expected before Christmas. Commenting on possible fi- nancial implicalions of offer- ing a three year degree pro- gram, Dr. Holmes said such a move would definitely "have financial implications.
