Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Ssptembtr 20, 1973 City teachers claim leave policy unfair Teachers should be given the same consideration as administrators when they ask for a leave of absence with pay to further their education, representatives of the local Alberta Teachers Association said Wednesday. The representatives, dur- s- M f ing a regular monthly 64 residents apply for legal immigrant status Sixty-four illegal im- migrants in the Lethbriclge are? have applied for legal residence under Canada Im- migration'a adjustment status program, and 34 have been approved, a Canada Im- migration officer said in Lethbridge Monday. "The others are awaiting in- Mike Diduck said. hope we can complete all except the last-minute applications by Oct. 15." Illegal residents who do not regularize their status can be deported without appeal, said Mr. Diduck. Those who apply will have their applications considered under relaxed rules, and if rejected can appeal to the Immigration Appeal Board in Ottawa. The immigration officer said that prospective im- migrants are usually required to obtain 50 out of a possible 100 points in nine categories. Under the adjustment status program, four criteria are used, along with a character assessment and a medical ex- amination. A positive response to any of the four questions would be con- sidered favorably, said Mr. Diduck. The four questions are: is the prospective immigrant dependent on a Canadian for support, or is a Canadian dependent on him? Is he satisfactorily established, and The Day you Buy A Diamond... You may wonder what makes these stones so precious. Besides the Dia- mond's unique HARDNESS and BRILLIANCE, it is also a rare stone Although there are more diamonds produced today, than at any other time in History, there is also more de- mand for Diamonds. Therefore dia- monds are rare. Then there is the Diamond's Product- tion Cost. On the African coast, where dia- monds are found in the old beach terraces, men use huge earthmovers to scrape away the sand as deep as 70 feet and then scoop up the dia- mond-bearing gravels below. Of all the material that must be moved and processed, only one part in one hun- dred million is diamond. You can see an excellent selection of Diamonds on display now at has he taken steps to improve 'himself? Prospective immigrants can apply to the Lethbridge immigration centre, 405 Federal Building, or to Canada Manpower centres in Medicine Hat and Blairmore. "This adjustment status program is in response to visitors who got caught flat- footed in Canada by a change in the immigration Mr. Diduck said. From October 1967 to November 1972 visitors could apply for immigrant status from inside Canada, he said. The law was changed on Nov. 5. 1972. and many people were made illegal immigrants with no hope of legalizing their status. Immigration centres will open for extended hours until the deadline passes, Mr. Diduck said. The hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Satur- days and statutory holidays, and 8 a.m. to midnight Oct. 15. Professor's art on display nnlil Oct. 7 The work of a University of Lethbridge art professor will be featured for the next three weeks at the campus art gallery.

Phone 223-3441 423-7748 CHARGEX meeting, unanimously denounced a policy approv- ed this summer by the public school board that gave sabbatical-leave preference to senior ad- ministrators. The ATA local suggested the policy should give teachers the' opportunity as administrators and in addi- tion should also be expanded to include teachers and ad- ministrators who are seeking a masters degree. The present policy is only applicable to those seeking doctorate programs. The public school board can award a person granted a sab- batical as much as 60 per cent of their annual wage during the leave of absence. Van Van Qrman, vice- president of the Lethbridge ATA.-said the public school board has attempted to put something into policy that should be in the teachers and administrators contract. Wayne Terriff, Winston Churchill High School prin- cipal, asked his fellow members not to demand that the sabbatical-leave policy be dropped entirely. Instead, he suggested it should be altered to make it apply to all teachers and ad- ministrators. "I hate to throw the baby out with the bath he said. Mr. Terriff said the policy must be taken "out of the hands of the board and put into the hands of the. ATA." Bill Cousins, past-president of the Lethbridge ATA, said sabbaticals should not be granted if other teachers will have to cover for a teacher during his or her leave of absence. He suggested another teacher should be hired by the board to fill in during a teacher's period of sabbatical leave. The ATA will now be sending a letter to the public school board requesting a meeting between board members and the ATA ex- ecutive to discuss the sabbatical-leave policy. In other ATA business, it was decided that it would be best for the local ATA members not "to over-react" to comments made about "in- competent" teachers at a September meeting of the public school board. However, one member did ask, "Why is it always the teachers who are incompetent and not the Another teacher suggested if there is going to be any evaluation done on personnel in the public school system it should start from the top and work down. Mall opens Oct. 12 In Wednesday's Herald it was reported the official open- ing of the administration shopping complex at Standoff would be held Oct. 14. This is not correct. The opening will be held Oct. 12, at Standoff. to It appears that Bert Herbers is this hungry truck.

RICK ERVIN photo Article clarified An article in the Sept. 13 Herald told of a Taber man convicted of setting fire June 15 to the home of Mrs. Frances Wilson, 5223 53rd St., Taber.

To coincide with Standoff ceremony Centre schedules open house stolen RAYMOND About in cash was taken by persons who broke into the Raymond High School early Tuesday morning, RCMP reported. The burglars apparently entered through the main door, kicked the office door open and pried open the cabinet which contained the money. Investigations are con- tinuing. An open house at the Lethbridge Friendship Centre's new location will be held Oct. 13. The date is the day follow- ing the official opening of the administration-shopping com- plex at Standoff. Dignitaries invited to the Standoff ceremonies will hopefully at- tend the open house. The Blood band has invited Indian and Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien and Allen Adair, provincial minister responsible for native affairs, as well as the 42 chiefs of Alberta Indian reserves to its shopping centre opening Oct. 12. The board of directors of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre is hopeful the cabinet ministers and chiefs will be able to schedule the Lethbridge opening into their itinerary. At a supper meeting Wednesday, centre directors decided to run normal programming during the open house, with the addition of a dinner and dance in the evening. The open house is being held to acquaint Lethbridge and district residents with the centre's new location at 324 4th St. S. During the meeting, attend- ed by Mel Benson, regional liaison officer with the federal secretary of state's department, centre directors discussed what types of programming they should be providing. Rev. Ken Morris, who will be elected to the board at its next regular meeting, said the centre should only provide services which satisfy Com- munity needs not being met through other agencies. "The first thing is to find out what programs are needed but Mr. Morris said. Mr. Benson agreed, saying the best way for the centre to integrate with the community is through meeting needs which are not being satisfied. One suggestion he made which may see eventual acceptance by the board is a volunteer hospital worker who would visit Indian patients in Lethbridge hospitals. There are some old people in hospital, Mr. Benson said, who can't speak English. A volunteer worker who could speak Blackfoot could make such a person feel less alone.

Increased milk and dairy prices set down by the Public Utilities Board last week have made their appearance on local shelves but old stock can still be purchased at the previous price in some stores. Under the new prices, a quart of homogenized milk will cost 38 cents, a half gallon 75 cents and a pint 26 cents. Two per cent milk will cost 71 cents for a half gallon and 36 cents for a quart. A quart of chocolate will be 44 cents, buttermilk 41 cents. The prices for milk have increased proportionately and prices in corner stores are generally a few cents higher than the larger retail outlets. Lightless cyclists beware City police have set up a special patrol looking for people, especially children, riding bicycles without proper night lighting. A pint of 10 per cent cream will be 44 cents and whipping cream 50 cents for a half pint. A 16-bunce carton of cottage cheese will be 49 cents. The price hike follows hearings held in Red Deer where a decision by the Public Utilities Board increased the amount paid to dairy producers from to a hundredweight for No. 1 fluid milk.
