Student to attend conference Ken Runge. president of the Students' Society Council at the University of Lethbridge, will be attending a two day con- ference of student leaders in Ottawa this weekend. Delegates from more than 25 Canadian universities are ex- pected to attend the conference on the Carleton University campus. The aim of the conference, which was organized by the students' union at the Univer- sity of Alberta, is to bring about a unified student stand at the Association of Canada Conference to be held in Ot- tawa Nov. 1 to 4.

What you do on the first really cold and snowy day of winter is get all bundled up, go out on the street and wait for a Herald photographer to come along. After he has his camera all set, you give him a big smile. If you can't manage a truly genuine smile on a cold day, a look of intense interest will do. Bringing your younger sister along on a sled is also a help, especially if she's cute. Winter, the kids say, is here to stay. Finlay Municipalities call for restrictions on city election campaign spending By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer EDMONTON Election can- didates may have restrictions jut on the amount of money hey spend on campaigning if the provincial government goes along with the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association. A resolution to that effect was introduced during the sec- ond day of the AUMA conven- tion here. The delegates ac- cepted a ceiling of for al- dermanic candidates and 'or mayoralty candidates, and asked that the provincial gov- ernment consider new legisla- ion on that basis. The formula suggested in the resolution, to determine the jpper limit for campaign ex- penditures, was four cents per eligible voter. Alderman Ron Hayter from Edmonton said "running for office should not be a rich man's game" as it has become in the United States. He suggested there be a re- All the Rage with the Teen and Campus Crowd SUEDE TIES In 3 or 4 eyelet styles In ol! over brown suede, and chocolate and light tan suede with natural crope soles.

On another matter, the AUMA decided municipalities exceeding population should be given the right to set speed limits within their boun- daries. A spokesman for the City of Calgary said the resolution was submitted because something should be done to control driv- ers who use expressways and come off them to take shortcuts through residential areas. Paul Anderson, a councillor from Claresholm, said his town ts considering reducing the speed limit to 20 miles per hour in some parts of the town. As a result, he said municipalities under population should also have the right to change the speed limit. A majority of the convention delegates did not agree. As it stands, the provincial government will only be asked to consider concessions for Ed- monton and Calgary. Welfare also came under the scrutiny of the AUMA Thurs- REtlEVES GAS PAINS NEW 1600 V.W.

The convention passed a resolution which asks the prov- ince to investigate the possibil- ity of instituting a program of work for people receiving social assistance. Under tiie proposal, 80 per cent of the benefits paid to a social assistance recipient by a municipality, assuming that person is employable, would be applied to the payroll cost of a public works project employing that person. Aid. Kergan questioned the feasibility of such a program when affected unions are taken into account. Calgary Aid. Peter Petrasiuk said the unions had been thought of, and it was consider- ed they would appreciate the benefits to themselves in re- ceiving some material return in the form of work by the recip- ients for the money they put out in taxes for social assis- tance. Another Calgary alderm a n, Adrian Berry, said tiiany people on assistance would pre- fer the dignity of earning their assistance. He said the present system is destroying the citi- zen on welfare. Lethbridge resolution on new Police Act is accepted EDMONTON Sections of the Police Act have been ac- knowledged by the Alberta Urban Municipalities Associa- tion as being potentially dan- gerous and the provincial gov- ernment will be asked to take a close look at the act make some changes. The AUMA passed a Lett- bridge resolution at its conven- tion Thursday calling for a meeting between the provincial attorney-g e n e r a 1 and the AUMA membership to discuss possible revisions to the Police Act. Alderman Vera Ferguson told the convention the act had been "hastily conceived" and should be looked at before 1973. A related resolution originat- ing in Edmonton was also pass- ed specifically urging the province to amend the act by deleting the section which al- lows the chief of police to com- Cacaphony is expensive The cacophony of spinning tires, blowing horns, and crunching fenders filled the ears of Lethbridge and district drivers for the second nigh. Wednesday. City police reported 14 acci- dents in a short period of time. There were no injuries, but 445 total damage resulted. All of the accidents were credited to the city's icy streets. The Lethbridge detachment of the MMP reported 12 mi- nor accidents during OK night. There were no injuries and an exact total of the damage was not available. An RCMP offi- cial said all of the accidents were less than and result- ed from poor road conditions. pel witnesses to testify under oath concerning matters of an investigation and to cite wit- nesses for contempt. A spokesman for the Edmon- ton city council said under that section of the act, anyone could be picked up off the street, taken to testify before the chief of police and held in contempt if he refused, without even the benefit of counsel. The AUMA did, however, de- feat a proposal that city coun- cil appoint all members of the board of police commissioners. The act now provides for some provincially-appointed m e m- bers to boards of police com- missioners. Exam dates okay Divided school year will be continued Bowman centre busy is Lethbridge's Bowman Arts Centre, the home for member groups in the Allied Arts Coun- cil, is becoming busier all the time. This was the message con- tained in AAC business mana- ger Joan Waterfield's report to a meeting of the directorate. The report also notes 50 chairs have been purchased by the AAC so that all groups can be accommodated when sever- al activities are scheduled on the same night. Further pur- chases are being contemplated. The Bowman also has a cus- todian, at 'least temporarily, made available by the city. Mrs. Waterfield points out that if the custodian Gino Sac- cardo were assigned to the centre permanently it would solve security problems. A report from house mana- ger Clare Malmberg notes that relocation of the Lethbridge Sketch Club room has made it possible to turn a storage room into a meeting room. Renova- tions in the new meeting room are nearing completion. Education minister Lou I-Iyndman lias decided lo order an end to total local evaluation procedures for senior high school students in Lethbridge, but lo- cal school boards have been given the green light to continue with the divided school year. In the letter outlining his decision, Mr. Hyndman said that under the School Act, dividing the school year is the prerogative of individual school boards, and official authorization is not necessary. Dates for provincially-set Grade 12 examinations have been shuffled to coincide with the city's needs. to approach this a piecemeal man- On the question of local eval- uation, which has been an in- tegral part of the overall ex- periment, Mr. Hyndman said "it has becorce evident that this question of examinations and possible accreditation must be examined on a provin- cial basis, and we do not wish to continue problem in ner." Mr. Hyndman said he has ordered a re-examination of accreditation procedures. In the meantime, local teachers may do a restricted 50 per cent evaluation, he said. The remaining 50 per cent would be determined from de- partmental examinations. Mr. Hyndman said the local teacher input would be used en four Grade 12 subjects but, "we would look favorably at recommendations which we may receive that this proced- ure be extended to all the Grade 12 courses." Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten- dent of Lethbridge public schools expressed ment with the decision not to allow complete local evalua- tion. "Although we would prefer to use our own evaluation pro- cedures entirely, it now seems that the writing of departmen- tal examinations may not be so undesirable." he said. He said the change in de- partmental examinations dates fits them into the divided sehiMl year, and the minister's stand on local evaluation pro- cedures makes the decision easier to live with. The decision means that Grade 12 students will write departmental examinations at the end of the first semester and will probably continue to write the provincial examina- tions at least until the study on accreditation is completed. Separate school board keeps St. Mary's addition The Lethbridge separate school board has decided to go ahead with the additions to St Mary's school. The decision was made dur ing a special board meetinj Thursday, even though a citi zens' group has expressed con cern over the construe tion project. The citizens group feels the board acted hastily in ing the expenditure, and wants trustees to take a doser look at the overall situation. There have been comments that a new junior high schoo should be built rather than ex panding St. Mary's. The group feels it did no have the opportunity to oppose the expenditure before it was approved. But, the board gave adver tised public notice twice that if planned to borrow the money for the expansion. One public notice is all that is required by law. The board's prior discus- sions had also been covered by city news media However, the board has agreed to meet with the del- egation to discuss the situa- tion.
