Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE Tuesday, September 25, 1973 Humanitarian goals key to campaign Calgary Rabbi Lewis Gin- sburg kicked oft the 1973 United Way campaign Mon- day by slapping apathy and in- difference and challenging workers in this year's cam- paign to the job Rabbi Gmsburg, recently appointed executive director of Calgary's 1975 centennial celebrations, told the more than 100 United Way organizers and executives that the outcome of this year's campaign depends on their committment to hum- anitarian goals. "1 am but a spectator, and you. the leadership and volunteers of the Lethbridge United Way are going to live and create this year's new two-month campaign, and af- ford it its color, its strength and its meaning Quoting poetry, at various points in his address Rabbi Ginsburg, an experienced atter-dmner speaker, urged campaign workers to become involved. "There is no room for apathy, for a shrug of the shoulders, and a toss of the head, and leaving all to the determination of tate. Cer- tainly, fate will play its role." he said "But we cannot drift, we must steer We must become involved The difference between in- volvement and non- involvement said Rabbi Gin- sburg referring to the work ot United Way is keeping alive the work of the agencies through contributions to the United Way or shattering the hope, the promise in the lives of many people who depend on the success of the campaign. The goal of is awe- inspiring said Rabbi Ginsburg but not as frightening as would be failure on the part of the 15 agencies which are combined under the umbrella ot the Lethbridge United Way. Rabbi Ginsburg pointed to the worth of committing ones life to humanitarian goals "Your life, my life flows outward. If it loses itself in a purpose or cause, it becomes a thing of beauty and usefulness But if it flows inward it becomes like the Dead Sea in the State of Israel There is no outlet." he told United Way workers "The United Way is people serving he said as he challenged workers to unite to make this year's campaign a success.

Mediating the natural gas wells dispute between Canadian-Montana Gas Company arid the Brower Ranching Company and Robert Kunxla is the County ot Forty'Mile. Lynn and Bill Brower absolutely refused Canadian Montana crews permission to service wells on their land and on Mr. Kunzla's property So the County of Forty Mile cancelled several road allowance leases, involving about three miles ot road, held by the Brower Ranching Company This will enable Canadian-Montana crews to get to their wells when and il they please. At the same time. Coun. Russell Scratch, at a recent council meeting, said big equipment often can't squeeze through ranchers' gates. One piece of rig equipment, called a "cherry picker" seems to be able to pull up fence posts with ease and at will. Coun. Scratch said the ranchers are getting "pretty damn cranky" because the barbed wire is dropped by the crews. The County ot Forty Mile will now prepare a bylaw to open the road allowances. The Brower Ranching Company leases were cancelled effective Oct. 1. This opens the way tor Canadian Montana to get into two natural gas wells on Brower's land and on Robert Kunzla's land. The County of Forty Mile forecasts more exploration work and wants to facilitate access by the firms involved. In another matter southeast of Manyberries, not involving the county, Sarcee Drilling moved a rig Mon- day to begin drilling on "an important hole." This will involve "oil mud" drilling to make a hole "as slick as a gun barrel" for Anderson Exploration of Calgary and Home Oil Home is the major shareholder. The tool push says there are two Sarcee rigs in the Manyberries area and they are encountering their share of trouble from ranchers. One rancher claimed damages when the "water boy" drove his truck on ranch land off the road allowance. But the too! push says ranchers can make good money by selling water at per drilling operation. The oil men do all the hauling. Oil drillers have their "beefs" too. They say accommodation at Manyberries leaves much to be desired. "It's a hotel in name said one oil worker. To quench a heavy thirst, they travel over to Foremost or south to Havre. "I'd just as soon be out of this country all said the tool push. But it looks like drilling will continue southeast of Manyberries all winter "range war" or not Coun. William George McFall said the natural gas wells could be serviced by helicopter. Reminded that Canadian Montana pays taxes as well as the ranchers, he said all the gas firm's tax money will now be used to build roads.

The program could allow bright kindergarten children to be started by Christmas and able l.i read at a Grade 2 standard. Level 4 to Level 8 within four months Mrs Evaschesen told local teachers she had once en- countered a group of Grade 4 students who had been in school six years and did not know the alphabet She said she first met them on a Tues- day and by Friday, after much hard work, all knew the alphabet Bruce Carson of SRA told The Herald that Distar, an acronym for Direct Instruc- tional System for Teaching Arithmetic and Reading, is the most structured system yet introduced for teaching. "Everything the teacher savs is written down in ad- he said, "and all the responses are cued." He emphasized that positive rein- forcement is used in the system Children are praised when they do well rather than penalized when they do not. "If you have five children in a group and you want them to sit up said Mr. Car- son. "You praise Janie for sitting up straight and the others will sit up straight too." Mr. Carson agreed that the system is like programmed learning without the teaching machine, but added: "Just ask any Distar teacher and see il she thinks she can be replaced." lie said programs had been RCMP commander seeks community involvement Involvement of the policeman in the community and personal contact with the public underlie the philosophy in.sp .1.

Members of the force are part of the com- munities in which they live, and are encouraged to par- ticipate in community ac- tivities Insp. Hcntham docs not an- ticipate any major changes in I he Lethbridge subdivision, but it will enlarge as the area grows developed for reading, arithmetic, and language, and could be used at any level between kindergarten and Grade 3 Dr. George Bevan, director of curriculum and instruction for Lethbridge School District No. 51, said the program would be initiated in one class in Galbraith School and possibly a second in Senator Buchanan School. Dr. Bevan said that money for the Galbraith School program, which would cost over three years, would come from the Alberta Educational Opportunities Fund. The Buchanan School program was awaiting approval, he added. Two groups of 10 pupils each would be involved in the program at Galbraith School, he said, and it would follow them through Grades 1, 2, and 3. "We don't want to give parents the idea that we're ex- perimenting with their said Dr. Bevan, 'It's a pilot program to find out better ways of teaching reading skills and language arts." A highlight of the workshop was a sample lesson Friday afternoon, with Mrs. Evaschesen teaching six Grade 1 pupils from Galbraith School The seven sat in a semi- circle on the floor in front of their attentive audience. Mrs. Evaschesen held the text so that the children could see it, rapidly asking questions and just as rapidly receiving answers, cued by hand signals Children who did well were praised for their speed and ac- curacy, and soon all were do- ing well Garbage bylaw is watered down By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer The fourth time proved lucky for waste bylaw amendments which finally won city council approval Monday after three previous attempts to institute a system of fines for garbage mis- demeanors had failed. The version of the amending bylaw submitted Monday was termed by Aid. Vaughan Hembroff as being watered down enough to be almost palatable to anyone, but there were still two dissenters Aid. Vera Ferguson and Aid. Ed Bastedo. Passage of the bylaw gives Talks okayed on crossing City council agreed Monday to meet with the separate school board in an attempt to resolve the 5th Avenue S. and Mayor Magrath Drive cross- ing issue. The board had suggested a meeting in a letter to council reviving the issue which flared late last spring when parents in the area, backed by both public and separate school boards, went before council to ask for a pedestrian overpass to alleviate what they felt was a dangerous crossing situation for their children A great deal of words were exchanged over the issue with the city, suggesting an over- pass was expensive and im- practical and not needed at current traffic levels, while the backers of the overpass continued to insist the cross- ing was dangerous and the posting of a policeman at the intersection was ineffective In the end the walk signal time at the intersection was increased, in a move that was being made already as part of a city-wide program the city traffic department to standardize the timing of all such signals, and that was the only change. The dispute died down over the summer, but the separate board said in its letter to coun- Council briefs cil Monday it considered the city's disposition of the problem unsatisfactory. "It's probably time we should said Aid. Vera Ferguson "The letters have indicated a lack of understanding by both sides and it would be poor public relations and bad manners to just send them another letter." Aid. Vaughan Hembroff agreed. "We could write them and they could write us he said "If they want to sponsor a meeting, I'd be delighted to attend." Ald. Hembroff had in- dicated in the earlier debates on the matter he felt a more viable solution to the problem lay in educating the children, parents and motorists to be aware of potential dangers in- volved in any pedestrian crossing Aid Ferguson suggested council go to the meeting with a full documentation of its case, including the informa- tion that the provincial government will not have an overpass on roadways such as Mayor Magrath Drive where it lias paid 75 per cent of the construction costs The date for the meeting is to be arranged later. Bridge roads bid approved A tender for construction of the approach roads for the 6th Avenue S. bridge to the west side was approved by city council Mon- day. Eastbrook Sand and Gravel Ltd., a sister company of Poole Construction Ltd. of Ed- monton, won the contract with the lowest of eight bids on the bridge project It was below es- timates presented by Stanley and Associates Engineering Ltd. who is in charge of the million first stage pro- ject. Council also approved a tender of for un- derground electrical duct and manhole work on the Woodward Stores project in downtown Lethbridge. The bid from Kenwood Engineering Ltd. was the only one submitted for the job, but city officials said this was not unusual because of the size of Minor injury in crash About damage and one minor injury resulted from a coiiision at 14th Avenue S and Henderson Lake Boulevard Monday evening.

First reading was given Monday to a bylaw which would close off 23rd Street S. at the Mayor Magrath Drive and 6th Avenue intersection. When given second and third readings the bylaw will allow the city to construct a cul-de- sac eliminating access from 23rd Street onto 6th Avenue at Mayor Magrath Drive The week of Nov. 3 to Nov 10 will be Remembrance Week in Lethbridge. If Canada's national ski team is to win any cham- pionships in world skiing com- petition this winter, it will have to do it without the sup- port of Lethbridge. Council Monday turned thumbs down on a ski team re- quest for trom the city, concurring in Aid. Bill Kergan's opinion that the responsibility for financial support ol the team rests with the federal government t the two city employees designated in July as the waste bylaw enforcement of- ficers a job to do. Until now, they had no violations to en- force. Violations included in the bylaw passed Monday include carrying garbage to the land- till in an uncovered vehicle, which will cost violators placing waste on streets, another dumping in an un- specified area, improper dumping at the landfill and dumping when prohibited, each worth and scavenging, which brings a fine Failing to clean up building wastes on city property will be subject to a fine and a violation described as not carrying out regular designated pick-ups brings a tag. Sections such as one cover- ing overturned garbage recep- tacles, which had drawn fire from aldermen previously were omitted. The two garbage inspectors will have the power to hand- out tickets for violations of the bylaw similar to the way park- ing tickets are issued. Car stall loss matter of timing Being out of town at the wrong time, not political patronage, apparently cost Dr J S Ruddell his perma- nent space m the city's car park. Mayor Andy Anderson told council Monday his parking stall was one ol the two Dr. Ruddell referred to when he charged the stalls were allotted by patronage while his application was passed over. "I'm quite sure it was handled the mayor said, adding that the Stalls were granted to the next per- sons on the list because Dr Ruddell was out of town when the spaces were available. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff remarked that if there was patronage, he'd missed out because he's been waiting for a permanent stall for two years. Aid Hembroff also said he couldn't understand why the doctor had had to park on the roof, because he's always been able to find a covered spot below. Dr. Ruddell did get one concession from council however His request to see the waiting list was granted and when he does see it, he'ii find his name at the top. Certified Denial Mechanic CLIFF BLACK.
