Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 30, LETHBRIDQE HERALD-15 Gas camp requests school FOREMOST (Staff) Ranchers and workers at the Canadian Montana Gas Com- pany Ltd. gas camp 50 miles south of here have petitioned the County of Forty Mile school committee to establish a school in the Pinhorn dis- trict. They want a school near the gas camp. At present pupils in the area are faced with about 100 miles of school bus travel daily to the schools at Foremost. School superintendent Cliff Elle will investigate and make a recommendation to the school committee, the county council learned Friday. Coun. Russell Scratch and others attended a meeting with rancher Robert Kunzli and gas camp workers recently. About 16 school children in Grades 1 to 9 are faced with about 10 hours or more of bus travel a week under the pre- sent program. "Mr. and Mrs. Kunzli thought it would be better to have a school on that site and offer services in that council heard Friday. Some of the children haven't yet reached school age. Mr. Elle said Monday he is still investigating the request. "We haven't talked to some of the people at this point. We are not going to say anything until we have talked to all the people involved." 'Pass forum hears dump not wanted BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) A proposed dump was opposed by Crowsnest Pass citizens at a recent land use forum here Local citizens- said -the' proposed Crowsnest Pass sanitary, landfill site at the base of the Crowsnest Moun- tain could pollute the Crowsnest River. Nick Agnew of the Rural Education Development Association, said local citizens should express their concerns to the forum at a meeting scheduled for Pincher Creek Nov. 17. He said views presented to these land use forums will be presented to the Alberta cabinet prior to legislation that will give the province a new planning act and possibly legislation on family and com- munal farms, corporate farms, recreational use of land and foreign ownership of land. Concern was also expressed over the fragmentation of land by transportation and utility lines. The 'Pass acts as a cor- ridor for a provincial highway, railway line, two gas pipelines, two electrical tran- smission lines and a proposed 240 KVA transmission line. One of the major points ex- pressed was concern over the proposed route of Highway 3 infringing on residential land use. The Herald District Oil firm to haul until money's gone South In short Halloween party Thursday Barons 4th Annual Halloween Party for children will be held in the Community Hall Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. with dancing set later for teenagers. Artworks to be displayed CRANBROOK (Special) About 100 paintings, carvings, sculptures and drawings will be inspected here by A. K. Clokeid, agent for the provincial public works department. A provincial project will assemble art works from the whole province at intervals each year. The hundred odd East Kootenay items accepted for inspec- tion here through the various arts councils in East Kootenay were on display at the llth Ave. former Masonic Hall, now city property serving as an arts council centre. Depending on budget allowed, similar area assemblies at key centres will be inspected two or three times a year, and purchase offers made on those suitable for the provincial collec- tion. v East Kootenay arts councils of Golden, Windermere Valley, Crowsnest area and Creston will encourage their various artists to participate in the showings toward recognition and financial return if the entry is judged worthy of purchase. Signs complete project TABER (HNS) Installation of historical "point of interest" signs on highway 3 within the Taber town limits in the near future will fulfill a project of the local chamber of com- merce of several years' duration. Department of highways and transport crews have been hauling earth to widen both sides of the highway a few hundred yards east of 55th St. Signs will be installed on both sides of the highway at the soon to. be paved turn-outs. Since the widening of the highway in 1967, there has been no such point of interest sign, one describing the sugar'industry having been removed at that time. The new signs, approved by the Historic Sites Advisory Committee, department of culture, youth and recreation, and as recommended' by the Chamber, will commemmorate the construction of the Northwest Coal and Navigation Company narrow gauge (turkey trail) railway between Lethbridge and Dunmore in 1885. The railway was later replaced by Canadian Pacific with standard gauge tracks and equipment, greatly improving the ability of the railway to move Lethbridge coal to eastern .Canada markets.. Progress is also being made on- a department of highways and transport project of lighting the highway for a distance of nearly two miles through Taber, where more than 90 street lights on steel standards will be erected. Materials now are on hand except for mercury vapor lamps. Trenching for the underground wiring is expected to begin shortly, following which the pre-cast concrete bases will be placed and the lamp standards erected. Intersections of highway 3 with highway 36 east and west of Taber are included in the illumination program, designed to im- prove traffic and pedestrian safety.

'Pass workers ask 'fair' deal By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer FOREMOST The Murphy Oil Company Ltd. of Calgary will be informed the Coun- ty of Forty Mile that it can haul oil from east of Manyberries to the Aden border crossing point via county roads "until the provincial government's special road grant is expended." "It is subject to cancellation any said Coun. Lyle Nattrass at the recent council meeting. "We grant our permission until such time as the roads deteriorate or until the grant is said Coun. William George McFall. It involves Highway 61 and Secondary Highways 501 and 880. The load limit earlier was pounds. Then the county council raised it to pounds. "Now they want a pound said Coun. Nattrass. At the same time, he said 400 yards of gravel to the mile is "not nearly enough." Commenting on Coun. William Kenneth Babe's public works report, Coun. Nattrass suggested that 600 yards is needed to fill ruts and build up the road. Others said the gravel would be snowplowed into the burrow pits this winter. Said Reeve Dan Vanden Berg: "Personally I think you would be better off if you have to put on more to put it on next spring than now." "Next spring there won't be any gravel left to put said Coun. Nattrass. He was asked to check the supply of gravel in the BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) A "fair treatment for hospital workers" program will be launched by the Canadian Union of Public Employees Friday, says Jeanette Cox, president of the Crowsnest Pass branch of the Alberta Certified Nursing Aides Association.

Couii. Babe noted that tenders close Nov. 11 for the contract for the new Milk River bridge. He said the fire com- missioner has ordered that certain equipment not be stored in the county shop. A letter from Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne informed council that paving on Highway 61 won't start un- til next spring. It was to have been done this summer. Coun. Marg Dragland urged that roads be built into farmsteads as soon as possible. Other municipalities grade private roads but do riot construct them, she was told. At the same time, such pro- jects are possible if the roads can be designated public highways. Supervisor Frank Heck has suggested that these private roads bi built on a "fee for services basis." Coun. Russell Scratch favored this approach. But Coun. William George McFall asked: "Are we keep- ing up with our roads? We have trouble keeping our main roads up let alone a lot of side roads." Council is undecided as to whether, first, residents should pay for construction of roads to their farmsteads, or second, whether the county should survey the short stretches and call them public roads. Coun. Bill Gejdos said residents would not have to pay the cost of moving equip- ment because these jobs would be done while the equip- ment was in the area. "I stiii don't understand this other said Coun. Dragland, "I just don't know." "Just tell him you will put it on your said Coun. Babe. "It will be a public asked Coun. Dragland. "That is something that will have to be said Coun. Babe. Liddell named deputy mayor Nursing aides are now members of the province wide CUPE Local 3000. The local has about members, says Miss Cox, who recently returned from the ACNAA convention at Edmon- ton. An application will be made to the board of industrial relations to authorize the merger of the ACNAA with CUPE's members. The association is striving to increase nursing aide salaries to a parity with hospital orderlies. At present nursing aides earn from 1480 to per month with the top wage reached after five years. Nursing orderlies earn between and per month. The ACNAA will retain its autonomy and its name.
