Another bystander observed that trees should be planted in that hole and in the one that Public Works Minister Winston Backus helped the Premier and Mayor dig to mark the start on the new provincial administration building.

Dr. Backus told the gather- ing the new provincial building would be not just an administration building, but a place for people that together with the Woodwards down- town development will attract people from outside Lethbridge as well as the city to the area A model of the building, a U-- shaped structure part of which will be three stories and part two stories high, was un- veiled here today That model and the model of the Woodwards development will be on display at city hall. Dr. Backus said after the ceremony the government is waiting for an offer from Woodwards before it decides who will put up its building. Both were designed by James Wensley Architecture Ltd. of Edmonton "If the terms of their offer are good, we'll have them develop it and lease it back, otherwise we'll build it he said Estimated cost of the pro- ject is about million. Provincial cabinet ministers rejected Tuesday a request bv Castle Mountain Resort Ltd lor to im- prove ski facilities at West Castle West Castle, owned by Cas- tle Mountain Resort, is the sight oi all ski competitions during the 1975 Canada Winter Games and the developers said an estimated would be needed to upgrade the facility Horst Schnad, minister of culture, and recreation said following an afternoon cabinet meeting the govern- ment would install phone lines and upgrade the road into West Castle but additional hinds would not be forthcom- ing directly from the province. "To complete the area as a viable ski-vacation resort" Castle Mountain developers requested an ad- ditional from the conservative cabinet. is a fact to note that if money is not provided for complete development, the money spent on the Winter Games will have been wasted, and the province of Alberta will have lost an opportunity to establish a new recreation industry." representatives of the company said. The detailed brief explained how rapidly the skiing in- dustry in Canada is expanding and listed financial aid as a basic concession required from the Government of Alberta to insure the con- tinued growth of the ski in- dustry in Alberta, and specifically the viability of West Castle." Other "concessions" in the brief included requests to the government to provide public land to private developers of ski areas on long term leases, Homecare asks for gov't aid The provincial government was approached Tuesday for funds to institute a homecare program in Letrhbridge. The Lethbridge Homecare Committee told the Alberta cabinet in a brief that a com- prehensive and well-co- ordinated program was need- ed to reduce the number of elderly persons and others un- der institutional care. The committee said such a program would assist persons to remain independent and well and to continue living in their own homes. It would cost about for the first seven months of operation, the committee told Health and Social Develop- ment Minister Neil Crawford. Represented on the com- mittee which has been study- ing the question of homecare since last October are city hospitals, Victorian Order of Nurses, Meals on Wheels, Lethbridge Family Service, the community services department, Canadian Mental Health Association, Lethbridge Health Unit and the guidance clinic and to consider a complete "takeover" of the Pincher Creek road trom Pincher Creek to the east boundary gate of the Crowsnest Forest Reserve "Complete takeover means all upgrading and year-round maintenance, including snow removal from the West Castle the group ex- plained.

Clarence Copithorne, highways minister, termed the Highway 3 upgrading program of the Conservative government pretty substantial in its two years in office He reminded chamber representatives that up- grading between Monarch and Fort Macleod is just being completed Cabinet at school Never a sales tax Hohol By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Premier Peter Lougheed hinted Monday there could be a sales tax in Alberta's future, but his labor minister said Tuesday there is no way a sales tax will be introduced under the present government Bert Hohol told an assembly of about 500 students at Winston Churchill High School the province "has a great deal of resources" to gain its revenue from and there is no need to use the sales tax as a source of revenue. Dr. Hohol, Solicitor General Helen Hunley and Jim Foster, minister of ad- vanced education, were questioned on a variety of topics by a panel of Winston Churchill students during a half-hour school assembly Tuesday. Miss Hunley told the students the government "in the very near future will be setting up a program to discourage drinking and driving." When asked by a persis- tent student to explain the new program. Miss Hundley replied "We do in- tend to step up the possibility of impaired drivers being caught." She did not elaborate. The students gave Mr. Foster a resounding "yes" when he asked them if they felt the lowering of the age of majority to 18 was satisfactory. When questioned about entrance examinations at the university level, Mr. Foster said he felt the students and the educational system should be given a chance to operate without a formal set of examinations. He said he hoped the post-secondary educational institutes would accept the high schools' evaluation of its own students. "It could be universities will feel it is necessary to establish entrance ex- aminations if thev do there's nothing I can do about he claimed. Will the government be establishing more and better facilities for the fine arts in Alberta's high schools and post-secondary institutes? Mr. Foster suggested some new fine arts buildings may be built, but only after the government has finished taking stock of fine arts facilities now available to students. "Every university and college in Alberta wants to build buildings for fine arts but we'll have to do an evaluation and then make a decision next year as to where they will be he said. 'Local boards make decisions9 By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer Education Minister Lou Hyndman gave local school boards a shot in the arm at a meeting with students at Catholic Central High School Tuesday morning. Fielding questions from students on a much needed cafeteria, a new junior high school, curriculum and credit for courses when a student moves from one, province to another, he said it was the local boards who made the decisions. "Decisions in Lethbridge are made by the local Mr. Hyndman said. "They most accurate- ly reflect the desires of the people." When asked if the government ever overrules the boards. Mr. Hyndman said it happens but the main role of the govern- ment was to set guidelines for curriculum and finance Students were quite up- set Catholic Central didn't have a cafeteria and said they had circulated a peti- tion but this met with no success. Frank Peta. vice- chairman of the separate school board, told Mr Hyndman after the meeting it was ridiculous tnat in a school of students they didn't have a cafeteria He added the board would be contacting the government shortly on this matter. To a student's question that the Catholic schools were getting a rotten deal because they had fewer students, Mr. Hyndman stated both school systems were given equal amounts of money. Regarding a new junior high school he said the government can't build new schools until it's prov- ed that existing facilities are filled to more than 90 per cent of their capacity. "We can't make mortgage payments for empty he added. "The taxpayers would be asking why we weren't utilizing the space we now have." When asked if Southern Alberta was being left out because it elected mostly Socreds, Mr Hyndman replied that all money were paid out regardless of politics and there was no second class citizenry. Like the NDP, premier told By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer Students at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute made the most of a chance to question Premier Peter Lougheed Tuesday morning. The students had 15 minutes to question the premier in the half hour he spent at the school, while Consumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling and Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne sat by and were not asked any questions "In the next five years, are you going to allow capitalistic American com- panies to exploit our resources1'" demanded one student. "We want to move as quickly as we can to have a larger share in Canada's resources as replied Mr. Lougheed "Leaving Alberta aside for the time being." he con- tinued, "Canada can't ex- ist without being a world trading nation, and we can't trade without inviting others to come here, invest here, and have a share here "Wouldn't control or nationalism be rather socialistic." asked the same student, "as in the communist based provinces around us'" "We must control our own the premier answered, but added that this would not always be through govern- ment control. Mr. Lougheed said that a private enterprise system with individuals controlling their own destinies could be one part of the control. "That sounds amazingly like the NDP in Saskatchewan and replied the student. Mr. Lougheed also field- ed questions on humane trapping and a possible trap exchange program, saying that the government had not yet reached a final decision He did say that he County enrolment up The number of students in the County of Lsthbridge School Division has increased from to C. E. Burge, superintendent of schools for the county, told the County School Committee Tuesday he has hired two more teachers bringing the number of county teachers to 164. A delegation from Nobleford, petitioning for two more teachers because ot an increase of 17 students at Nobel Central High School, were partially satisfied when the committee agreed to hire one more. Mr. Burge reported there were 100 students enrolled in the driver training program in the four county high schools and that the work experience program was well under wav. In this program, students combine actual work ex- perience with classroom instruction. Mrs. Eileen Urvold of Nobleford was appointed as the committee representative from there after being elected in the town. She will attend the next committee meeting Oct. 16. had been "literally shocked" by the dire poverty of people in the far north of the province, where trapping provides the only income for many people. Mr Lougheed earlier told the assembly that a strong natural resources position was necessary to create opportunities for the province's future "I feel strongly as a Canadian." he said, "that everything we do should be as Canadians first and then as Albertans. But I look at Confederation as a coming together of 10 provinces, and the natural resources belong to the provinces They're under the provinces' jurisdiction SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5m St S.
