Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, Scplemger 15, 1970 35 Cases Planned For Supreme Court The fiftl) sitting for 1970 of the Supreme Court of Alberta is into its second day in Lctli- bridgc and will continue until Friday with Justice S. S. Lie- berman of Edmonton presiding. There were 35 cases to be heard including one criminal, that ot assault with intent to commit an act of gross inde- cency. The criminal case was to be heard today. The other cases are made up of undefended divorces, as- sessments, civil cases and chambers (cases that don't re- quire a trial, just an order from the judge.) The next sitting in Leth- bridge will be Oct. 26. The next Supreme Court sit- ting in Fort Macleod is Oct. 13 and in Medicine Hat its Nov. 8. Wartime 'Mom And Dad' To Visit Gty Thursday Mr. and Mrs. Harold Ballard, whose home in England was a refuge for more than 270 Cana- dian servicemen during the Sec- Chinese Festival Today Chinese residents of Leth- bridge today are marking the Toon 15th day of the eighth month (or Older Chinese persons are giving moon cakes to friends and neighbors to mark the day when the moon, according to ancient tradition, is the bright- est and it is closest to the earth on this day of the year. Many local residents observ- ing the moon early this mor- ning remarked on its clarity and brightness. ond World War, will arrive In Lethbridge Thursday for a one- day visit. Their stop-over in the city is part of a tour of the four west- ern provinces during which they are visiting with ex-servicemen who were their guests while on leave in England. Mrs. William Loewen of 203 5th Ave. S., who is organizing the BaUard's Lethbridge visit, said persons wanting to contact them may do so at the Marquis Hotel Thursday. Harold and Erica Ballard opened their home to Canadian troops more than 25 years ago. Although they have since moved from the stately two- storey house in the suburb of Finchley, it will always be known as Maple Leaf Corner. Pictures of every Canadian visitor were hung in the Bal- lard's living room and they made a point of keeping in touch with their new-found friends after they had returned home. School Board To Push St. Mary's Addition The Lelhbridgc separate school board will try again to convince the department of ed- ucation that the board knows whereof it speaks in requesting an addition to the St. Mary's School. Trustees requested the addi- tion last year, but were turned down with a suggestion they try again this fall. Bob Kimniilt, superintendent of separate schools, wrote re- cently to the department's school buildings board to re- quest the addition, noting that last year the request involved significantly less students than are now attending the school. About 30 students from Ray- mond are now attending St. Mary's, plus a number of In- dian students, and the school's total enrolment this year is 383 students 60 more than esti- mated. "We needed the school badly when we applied last said Mr. Kimmitt. "This year we need it even more, and tbs situation is far worse than be- fore." He said many young families with elementary-schcol-age stu- dents are moving into the older area around St. Mary's, ner- haps because they can afford to buy the old homes in the neighborhood. The addition would likely in- volve about six new classrooms, several opportunity rooms, open-area space fcr team teach- ing, a new gymnasium and other facilities including an im- proved library. It would also permit alii Grade 7 students to attend the same school, instead of be- ing spread among several'as is now the case. Tlie board will request a spe- cial meeting with the school buildings board, at which trus- tee Dick Gnienwald, sccrclary- Ircasurer Bert Hollander and Air. Kimmilt will be present to discuss thp addition. Meanwhile, the Alberta de- partment of labor's boilers branch has informed the board that ths heating plant boiler in St. Basil's School is no longer satisfactory, and ordered it re- placed by Aug. 31, 1971. "It's just 60 years old and suffering from old age and acute quipped Mr. Hollander but trustees were not amused when they were told it could cost as much as to replace it. Big Increase In Separate Schools School Enrolment Up Six Per Cent By JIM WILSON Education Writer Enrolment in Lethbridge se- parate schools this year in- creased by about six per cent more than three times the expected jump, the separate schools this year increased by No Inquest In Death Of Hays Man Coroner Dr. C. J. W. Dck of Taber said no inquest will be held into the Sept. 6 death of a 29-year-old Hays man, Wayne Oliver Wright. Mr. Wright was killed when the car he was operating left the road and entered an irriga- tion ditch on a district road, seven and a half miles south of Hays. Medical evidence showed Mr. Wright suffered a heart attack. about six per cent more than three times the expected jump, the separate school board was told Monday evening. Total enrolment as of Sept. 4 in the six separate schools was students, compared to in 1969 and compared to the pre-school estimate of Most of the extra students went to St. Mary's School and Catholic Central High School, requiring employment of three new teachers and the equivalent of one new teacher's aide. "An unusual thing happened commented Bob Kim- mitt, superintendent of schools. "Usually enrolment increases are spread evenly through all the grades, but this year we had a large increase in Grade 8 an unexpected but welcome group of strangers." The system employed 101.2 teachers, compared to the bud- geted 98.4 (the fractions are due to teachers who are employ- ed part Assumption School has 357 students, St. Basil's has 307, St. Mary's has 383, St. Patrick's lias 152, St. Paul's has 221 and CCHS has 868. The staff-to-sludent ratio (not teacher-tc-student) is 21.4 to 1, only slightly higher than pre- viously budgeted. Tins number is important in terms of gov- ernment grants, indicating that the financial position of the dis- trict, even with the required additional staff, is about the same as expected before the unexpected enrolment increase was discovered. City Grows By 75 Acres City council voted Monday to begin proceedings to annex 75 acres of the industrial park that is outside the city limits. That portion of the park was included in the old prisoner-of- war camp site when the city purchased it for industrial ex- pansion. To Present Subregional Study Wrenettes To Parade The Navy League Wrenette "Commander Jerome" number 26 corps will hold its first pa- rade of the season tonight at seven o'clock on the Royal Ca- nadian Sea Cadet Ship Chinook, 10 Ave. and 17 St. S. The parade routine will in- clude allocation of Wrenettes to divisions, registration of new entries, evening quarters and liberty boats. There is an opening for 25 girls between the ages of 12 and 16 inclusive in the Leth- bridge Wrenette corps. Part one of the Crowsnest Pass subregional study will be presented to the commission members at Wednesday's meeting of the Oldman Kiver Regional Planning Commission. Discussion and study of the plan will be held over until next month's meeting, to allow members to go over the rather lengthy report The study is in three sec- tions, two of which have al- ready been published. Section one, the last to be released, is a summary of the other two. Financed largely by Central Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration and the Alberta Hous- ing Corporation, the study is in- tended to prepare a develop- ment plan for the region that would broaden its economic base and nrovide a better op- portunity for residents to Slice of life. Bread is a basic staple 1n the good life Albertans lead. And living in a province that grows the world's best wheat, we tend to take it for granted Of course, for thp farmer it's a little more complicated It means an investment in labor, machinery, good soil management. Then markets must be found, transportation undertaken 3vpn before milling and bak ing play their part All in all, a skilled and complex business comparable in many ways to the supply and distribution of electric energy Here too specialized skills and romplex processes are required to ensure that all the electricity you want is ready for instant flick- of-the-switch availability While the overall cost of living has increased dramshcally the price of electricity is still one of today's best bargains Did you realize that the power used on a farm is, on average, less than one per cent of the total operating costs'That's some- thing to think about when you consider inflation or watch the toast pop upi achieve a better standard of living. Erwin Adderley, ORRPC ex- ecutive director, will present his report on the commission's operations in the first six months of 1970. The meeting will also deal with preliminary budget plan- ning for 1971. In related business, UK board approved an agreement with the Raymond separate school board under which Raymond will bus its 50 Catholic students into Lethbridge, and for token tuition, the separate school district will educate them and receive the gov- ernment per-student grants for them. About 50 students are in- volv.ed, and will attend St. Mary's and CCHS this year. Raymond had previously re- quested the arrangement be- cause with its small enrolment it could not afford to continue to operate its school. The board also authorized Mr. Kimmitt to investigate ways elementary students liv- ing in the vicinity of 13th St. and 16th Ave. S. could be bused to Assumption School. A number of students living in the extreme southwestern part of the city must walk more than a mile to get to school, and parents have been com- plaining about the distance and unavailability of buses. School buses are supported by government grants, but in order to qualify, students must live more than 1% miles from the school. The separate school buses usually pick up small children living along the route who are closer in, but'there is no bus running near these par- ticular families. Mr. Kimmitt said the area seems to be growing rapidly, and many families with young children are moving into it. St. Basil's has an enrolment of 307 students, in the old eight- room section and a new addi- tion, which Mr. Reilander said will have to last another 30 years at least, which would be the life of the new heating plant. Trustees thought there should be some less-expensive system of heating that could be used, and directed that other firms be contacted for suggestions and estimates. The boilers branch said the existing boilers have leaks, deep pitting, severe active cor- rosion in several parts, al- though there is no immediate danger to the school other than non-functioning of the heating system. Only the old part of the school is affected. Low Cost Housing Rezoiuiis Two items relating to low- cost experimental housing were dealt wilh by city council Mon- day. Second and third readings were given to a re zoning application by Engin e e r e d Homes Ltd. of Lethbridge for a development at 10th Ave. and 6th St. N. First reading was also given to a replotting scheme for a similar development by Nu- Mcde Homes Ltd. at 28th St. and 5th Ave. N. The two developments will provide semi detached units for purchase by families in the lower income ranges.
