Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 25, 1974 Teachers inducted into ATA A public school board trustee congratulated the Lethbridge separate school board Tuesday for initiating family life education into its schools. Doug McPherson, who will be running for a third term of trusteeship in the Oct. 16 civic election, told the induction ceremony for new Alberta Teachers Association members he was particularly pleased with the type of program that is to be introduced into the separate schools. Parents, teachers and ad- ministrators of separate school students have been developing a family life education program during the past year for introduction at the Grade 8 level. Dr. McPherson told the new teachers and guests that sex education is a necessity in grade schools because young people are exposed to ''inter- personal relationships that tend to degrade per- sonalities." He referred to modern movies and television programs as displaying human sexuality in a manner young people shouldn't be ex- posed to Human sexuality is an im- portant "development in a personality" and should be included in an over-all family life education program. Dr. McPherson insisted. He claimed not to want to introduce such a program in disrespect to religious groups who don't support his point of view. Receiving an ATA membership for the first time were Lawrence Baker, Shirley Brooks, Elizabeth Brosz.

Many of the district's farmers are operating equipment at night in an effort to finish farming work before the weather changes for the worse. Changing jobs cost pledges City Scene The Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board will be asked to delay construction of a huge am- monia plant at Raymond when it opens hearings in Calgary next week. "We ask that the board delay any final decision on this application until national energy needs are deter- mined." the Lethbridge chapter of the Committee for an Independent Canada says in an intervention to an application by Alberta Am- monia Ltd. "Alberta Ammonia is a newcomer with no past com- mitment to this province and this country. There is no need to rush into this development as Alberta is already booming with other industrial the chapter says in its brief. Referring to hearings now being held by the national energy board, the chapter says applications by both Alberta Ammonia and Pan Canadian Petroleum Ltd. for Pension appointments cancelled CLARESHOLM Plans of the Canada Pension Plan of- ficer for visits in this com- munity, Nanton and Fort Macleod this week have been changed. The officer will be at the Claresholm Drop-in Centre from a.m. to p.m. Thursday, but he has had to cancel other appointments an- nounced earlier this week. Bike route requested a smaller ammonia plant at Brooks should be shelved until national energy needs are determined "There may be no tor such questionable developments as this proposed plant which offers so few benefits to Alberta and the brief continues. While Alberta Ammonia was technically Canadian- owned, the chapter said it was not satisfied that Canadians will control it. Its biggest customer will be an American shareholder. "We have no evidence that any attempt was made to interest small Canadian investors." The Lethbridge chapter it is also concerned about the "tremendous amount of electricity" the Raymonc plant would consume. The lirst phase was estimated by the company in its application to consume about one-quarter what the City of Lethbridge used in 1973. "A lot of Alberta energy is going to be used for a project which will, in our opinion, produce few jobs and little fertilizer for the Alberta and Canadian markets City dog law gives females short lifespan The Lethbridge and District Humane Society will ask city council to change the dog bylaw, the group's president said Tuesday. The bylaw requires un- spayed female dogs in the pound to be destroyed after 72 hours if not redeemed by the original owner, said Violet Kandel. The bylaw leaves the question of whether a dog has been spayed to the poundkeeper. but it is a ques- tion for a veterinarian, she said "We would like to have that bylaw removed." said Mrs. Kandel. The Herald incorrectly reported last week that the bylaw referred to female cats. Mrs. Kandel said distress calls about stray cats are ex- pected to increase as the weather gets colder. She said people notice catr hanging around their yardr more when winter came than in summer The society ie generally successful at finding homes for stray cats, she said but there are a lot of stray cats. "Sometimes, much as we dislike it, we have to have some of them put said Mrs. Kandel. The new animal shelter in North Lethbridge will soon have cat facilities, but there is probably no place in the city big enough to house all the strays, she said. Pet-owners should have their dogs or cats spayed or neutered, she said. Mrs. Kandel said the group does not plan to apply for a provincial grant for 'more funds to protect pets.

Most payroll deduction pledges start in January, depending on the fiscal year used by the employer, said Mr. Wilson. The United Way set aside S4.000 to allow for these un- coliectable pledges in 1973. he said In some cities, a new hireds program prevents part of the loss.

In a telephone interview from Radium. B.C., Frank Fortin said no decision has been made to shutdown the mill. The Herald reported Tues- day that 12 mill employees were to be laid off. and falling lumber prices might force a shutdown of the entire mill. "It could happen. I'm not saying it's not going to happen." said Mr. Fortin. But if it does happen, it will not be immediately, he said. He said the entire lumber industry was affected by costs higher than the rates for lumber at the mills. The com- pany is curtailing production because it can not afford to build an inventory, he said. Only about half the lumber processed can be sold. Revelstoke hasn't been affected by large layoffs.
