Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Debate resolutions warm 'ho-hum' session Stuffed boxes helped election Saturday, Octobtr 26, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 35 Youths, 15, allowed B.C. work Heated debate over resolutions injected life into what might have been a "ho- hum" first official meeting of the new separate school board this week. On one side Trustees Steve Vaselenak and Robert Kolesar insisted on receiving more in- formation about what was happening in the schools and presented resolutions for im- mediate action. However, Trustees John Boras and Paul Matisz ques- tioned the validity of their re- quests. Chairman Frank Peta took the middle road. Even though there was an obvious split between the two camps Wednesday, they were able to reach a mutual agree- ment on most issues by show- Reportage draws, fire Separate school trustees have flayed two local televi- sion stations for their coverage of the school board elections Oct. 16. The trustees suggested it was deplorable that CJOC-TV and CFCN-TV stopped broad- casting election results when several polls had yet to report. They suggested that CJOC- TV's election coverage was misleading because it left one separate school candidate thinking he had been elected when he wasn't and another believing he was defeated when he was actually re elected to the board. The television news team had candidate Gil Poirier listed with a much greater vote total than he actually received, thus placing him in the fifth and final position on the board Incumbent candidate Frank Peta went to bed Oct. 16 think- ing he had been defeated. Mr. Poirier received congratulations election night and the next morning before he learned that he had finished in seventh place, 46 votes behind the elected Frank Peta and 28 votes behind defeated incumbent Ron Fabbi. ing a willingness to com- promise. Mr. Vaselenak continued where he left off last term by presenting several resolutions to the board covering everything from school busing to counselling. Mr. Kolesar, attending his first meeting as a board member, followed suit by suggesting the board should take further action to provide Catholic Central High School with lunch facilities and school board candidates with lists of Catholic parents' names and phone numbers. After revising a Vaselenak motion, the board instructed superintendent Ralph Himsl and CCH principal Stan Sawicki to prepare a report on the high school's methods and procedures of counselling and the number of children who request counselling in the school. Mr. Vaselenak said he was requesting the information to determine the number of children who actually use the counselling service and whether the school needs more or fewer counsellors. Mr. Matisz was concerned about such information being used to determine a counsellor's work load. "How do you measure case he questioned. Counselling was one of many issues raised by Mr. Vaselenak in an attempt to ob- tain more information about what is happening in the school system. Mr. Boras said the board meetings were not the place to be asking for such infor- mation. He suggested Mr. Vaselenak go to the school board office during the week and obtain the data he wants and not waste the superintendent's time preparing reports for the board. When Mr. Kolesar moved that the board supply a list of Catholic parent names and phone numbers to candidates fcr trusteeship, Mr. Matisz said he didn't need such infor- mation in his 19 years of trusteeship. Mr. Vaselenak quickly pointed out that Mr. Matisz didn't have to campaign in the past because board members were elected by acclamation. People didn't care then, but now they have an interest in education and candidates must seek the support of the public if they- hope to be elected, he continued. The phone list motion was tabled for discussion at future meetings after Mr. Boras suggested that some parents might not want the informa- tion released. If a single parent was listed as the only parent of a child in the separate schools, people may begin to wonder who the other person is who he or she is living with, he explained. When Mr. Vaselenak asked for a report on school busing, Mr. Himsl informed him he was carrying out a bus study and would present such infor- mation as the capacity of the school buses, and the max- imum number of students who ride each bus. Mr. Kolesar expressed concern about the number of children who stand in the city transit buses'that are being used to transport students. Even though it is legal for students to stand while riding the transit buses, he question- ed the safety factor involved when students attempt to stand while holding lunch box- es and books. In response to Mr. Kolesar's recommendation that the board make further attempts to obtain a lunch room facility or cafeteria for CCH, Mr. Himsl said he was in com- munication with the minister of education's office and hopes to arrange a meeting between the minister and the board in early November. Students now eat their lunch in the hallways of CCH. In the meantime, Mr Kolesar suggested the school should at least set up tables in the gymnasium so the students would have a place to eat. Mr. Boras and Mr. Matisz suggested such a, decision should be left to the jurisdic- tion of the school and not trustees MONTREAL (CP) Andre Renauld, a former union stew- ard told an inquiry into con- struction union freedoms that union musclemen telegraphed votes and stuffed ballot boxes to help elect Jacques Olivier as member of Parliament for Longueuil in 1972. Following Olivier's win, Renauld told the three-man in- quiry Friday he and two busi- ness agents for Local 791, International Union of Operating Engineers visited the MP in his Ottawa office. Renauld then unfurled a Ca- nadian flag which he said Oli- vier offered him as a souvenir of the visit. He said the two men who ac- companied him were Roger Chayer and Johnny Mantha, brother of Local 791 official Rene Mantha who was forced to resign following the March 21 violence at the LG-2 site of the James Bay hydroelectric project. The inquiry was established following the incidents at James Bay. Renauld said Johnny Mantha gave the MP a brown envelope which contained the names of Local 791 members for whom the union wanted federal manpower re-training grants to finance three-month courses for new stewards. "Rene Mantha had worked for the election with his gang of Renauld said, adding the telegraph machine had been one of the union members' most sucessful tac- tics. Olivier is one of 10 reference names Rene Mantha submitted in his peti- tion of a judicial pardon for a list of criminal offences rang- ing from assault to extortion. Olivier worked as a special assistant to Prime Minister Trudeau before his election and is a former official of the Confederation of National Trade Unions. Rene Mantha, currently em- ployed by a communications company in Zaire, Africa, was subpoenaed to appear before the inquiry. In earlier testimony, Renauld told the inquiry some "contractors pay up to to construction union officials affiliated with the Quebec Federation of Labor (QFL) to defy a government decree governing the construction in- dustry across the province. He said union officials were getting paid to ignore the fact companies were not providing the necessary security measures as outlined in the decree. VICTORIA (CP) Educa- tion Minister Eileen Dailly said Friday amendments to the public schools act will allow 15-year-old British Columbia students to work while going to school part- time. The students, exempted from the Minimum Wage Act, will need permission from their parents and school authorities. Mrs. Dailly said job securi- ty of other employees must not be affected by the new program. Purpose of the change in regulations is to prepare students for employment that will be satisfying, she said. Previously, 15-year-olds have had to attend school full-time. "Coming at an age when students' potential for dropp- ing out is high, the part-time work experience will help keep them attached to their schools so they can continue their Mrs. Dailly said. She said school districts who have offered the program in the past have found it helps pupils acquire good work habits. __________________V Hurlburt said anti-immigrant Lethbridge federal Liberals have reacted sharply to statements made in the House of Commons by Lethbridge Progressive Conservative MP Ken Hurlburt. Sven Ericksen, president of the Lethbridge Federal Liberal Association, said in a news release Mr. Hurlburt's views reflect "an anti im- migrant feeling which we as Liberals totally oppose and deplore." Mr. Hurlburt last week criticized Nickle Belt MP John Rodriguez, who came to Canada 14 years ago from Guyana, for contributing "nothing to it Mr. Ericksen said: "As citizens in the Lethbridge area we seriously question this type of representation in that it certainly does not reflect the feelings of Lethbridge citizens."

THE YEAR YOU CAN FINALLY AFFORD FUEL OLD QUEBEC Oldest city in North America Ftrci Chuich in NtMfti AHMET JCB Notre Dame de Victoire Bcflto of Tntt Pldfttof Abnftwin when Wolfe defeated Montcalm An Informal Reception for Buyers wilt be heM at 7 p.m October 31st at the Chateau Fronttnac Hotel. Until now, fuel injection has almost exclusively been a luxury item on luxury cars, costing anywhere up to twenty-five or thirty thousand dollars. And if you've had the big sums of money it took to buy those kind of cars, then you know what a wonderful thing fuel injection can be. Well, from this day on, all you need is the little sum of money it takes to buy a 1975 VW Beetle, to know what a wonderful thing fuel injection can be. Whatyou getf oryour mon- ey is an electronic brain, or con- trol unit, that receives signals from the engine, evaluates them, and in micro-seconds, determines exactly how much fuel should go into each cylinder. And then, again in micro- seconds, the fuel injectors (where the system gets its name from) actually inject the precise amount of gas for each cylinder. As an added bonus we might add that our system still only requires good old regular gas. Now, if all this sounds rather remarkable, well it is. Because it means you don't waste a drop of gas. Your engine runs more smoothly, it runs more efficiently and it runs more trouble-free. Plus, the whole system is perfectly pre-set. And tamper-proof. What else you get for your money is the amazing package it all comes in: The Volkswagen Beetle. A car that's by now legendary for its craftsmanship, quality and dependability. As well as a car that's covered by the VW Owners Security Blanket, probably the most advanced auto coverage plan in the world. The 1975 Beetle with electronic fuel injection. Just possibly, with the way things are shaping up, this might be the year you can't afford notto own one. t The 1975 Beetle. Raewood Motors Ltd.
