Some say assessment is too loic Farm taxation may change The taxation mode for small, rural land-holdings may become the basis lor tax- ation ot farm properties, a former county councillor said Monday. "There's a movement afoot on the part of urban represen- tatives and the provincial assessment branch that farm taxes are too low." Rogers Davis said. Mr. Davis, a former coun- cillor with the County ol Lethbridge defeated at the polls two years ago. said that rather than change what he calls the unlair basis of assessment ot small holdings, the provincial government will probably apply the system to farm property. I've heard this discussed manv times." he said Mr Davis, who farms across the Oldman River from Hardieville. said farmers are already taxed to their limit "If they start to tax that way, they'll tax the farmers out of business." He said the present method ol assessing small holdings, at 31 per cent of market value if the owner's livelihood does not come from the land, is un- fair. "It all began with the so- called oil millionaires" who Overpass is topic again The pedestrian overpass is an effective method of allow- ing students to cross major roads or streets in safety, if barriers are erected to force pedestrians to use the over- pass, a report on Calgary overpasses indicates The report on the use of overpasses in Calgary is to be presented to the Lethbridge Separate School Board tonight. The board asked for the report after the Lethbridge city council's decision not to build an overpass at 5th Avenue South and Mayor Magrath Drive as requested by the separate board on behalf ol parents in the area The two school districts in Calgary suggest in the report that "the effectiveness of such crossings is readily observant to all." but "we have had to use political influence (such as) petitions to council and in- dividual aldermen" to en- courage the construction of the overpasses. The Calgary transportion department says "pedestrians only use the overpass where they are forced to." The transportation depart- ment also estimates the cost of an overpass at between and It suggests a pedestrian underpass or a pedestrian corridor as alter- natives to the pedestrian over- pass. It estimates a corridor with a 24-hour bush-button would cost about No es- timate was given on the cost ol an underpass In another report to the board of trustees. N. L. Reilander. secretary- treasurer of the school system, says the resurfacing ot the gym floor at St Mary's School is not acceptable because of increased staining after resanding and finishing. Painted areas of the gym floor began staining after be- ing resurfaced by a local construction company this summer The floor has had at least three complete sandings which has reduced the life ex- pectancy of the floor, and there can be no assurance that the staining can be completely overcome, says the report. Mr Reilander also suggests in the report that a "cash settlement is unacceptable since we would then assume responsibility for the cost ot replacing the floor in the event that the staining gets out of hand." In other business, trustees will be asked to support a 10- cent-a-mile increase in operating costs for the City of Lethbridge's bus service to its schools. The increase raise the mileage rate to 85 cents per rnile. The purchase of three new buses this summer necessitated the ad- ditional mileage charge if the city was to continue to provide sufficient busing capacity for the separate school district. The board is also to be in- formed tonight that the City health unit's trained speech therapist will provide speech therapy services to children in the separate system. In an April board meeting the trustees had directed the hiring of a part-time speech therapist, but received no applications from trained per- sonnel when it advertised the position. bought small holdings outside urban areas and spent a lot of money developing them. As these estates would then be taxed as farms, with buildings and residences ex- empt, the provincial govern- ment formulated the small- holding assessment policy. The policy was developed to stop the millionaires from es- caping taxation. Mr Davis said, and now municipal governments are attaching to small, non-millionaire land owners the stigma that they wish to evade taxes "The number of people who move out of the city as a tax dodge is he said. Mr. Davis also criticized the assessment regulations for re- quiring an owner to make his livelihood off the land in order for his property to be classed as a farm LCC clinic The Lethbridge Community College student sponsored blood donor clinic will be held from 9 a m to noon.

Tickets sell at per person and the luncheon is open to the general public. Dropping enrolments in un- iversity education faculties could be a signal of a forthcoming school teacher shortage, says the head of per- sonnel services with the Lethbridge public school dis- trict. G. B. Probe offered the opi- nion after commenting on reports of qualified teachers unable to get jobs this September. Mr. Probe said the local public board had no problem obtaining qualified people ex- cept in specialized areas this year. But the board turned away several teacher job inquiries and Mr. Probe said there is no way of telling how many of them eventually got jobs elsewhere The president of the Calgary local of the association said Friday there are 300 un- employoyed during the course of the current year. He also predicted a teacher .Shortage in the near future. SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Lelh.)

Lucier) Needham. conductor ot the symphony claimed Tuesday. Mr. Needham. conductor tor three years, said the an- nual grant of made by the city to the symphony is a "paltry sum" compared to grants made to symphonies in cities of comparable size. Kingston.

A resolution passed last year bv city council said the symphony should be sell- supporting. The symphony did not ex- pect nor did it ask for an in- crease in the 1973 grant. Dr. W. A. Nelson, chairman of the hind raising committee oi the association, says Dr. Nelson, in fact, feels it is "unrealistic" to ex- pect the city to increase its grant to The symphony can operate at its current level oi perfor- mance with the existing city grant, but it would be reasonable to expect some in- crease in the grant ol annually, he added "The symphony has reached a standard of performance to justily tliis." he said The association has applied to increase its provincial government grant trom to said Dr. Nelson. No word has been received on the application as yet. If the symphony is successful in this bid then the city should be asked to increase its crant as well, said Dr. Nelson. Says Mr Needham: "We are grateful lor the city grant "but we would like them (city council members) to realize that no symphony orchestra was ever able to obtain enough money without civic support We are pleased with the support ol (he he said. "The number oi season ticket holders, and general patrons is increasing It is dis- appointing that city council doesn't realize what it has "In a developing city like Lethbridge I would hope the city would be supporting culture as well as athletics." Mayor Andy Anderson told The Herald Tuesday the com- munity services advisory committee would be willing to listen to a proposal by the The advisory committee could in turn, if it accepted the proposal, make a recommendation to city coun- cil T hey have a line organization." the mayor said ot the symphony.
