Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 30, 1970 Alberta School Boards Express Mixed Feelings EDMONTON (CP) Mixed feelings were indicated by the school beards of large urban centres to provincial govern- ment suggestions that they should be represented on muni- cipal planning commissions, Municipal Affairs Minister Fred Colborne said here. Mr. Colborne said the sug- gestion was made as one of several poinls discussed during a meeting between the school boards of Calgary and Edmon- ton and Education Minister Robert Clark and himself. The meeting was requested by the boards to discsss prob- lems involved in providing school facilities in expanding areas of the cities. Mr. Colborne said the prob- lems of new subdivisions "indi- cate the importance of having school problems considered at the same time the develop- ment is considered with full weight given to the implica- He said one solution may to give school boards membe ship on municipal plannin commissions and the provin asked the city representativ for their reaction.

The go cmment could review such prc posals and, if necessary, ecu arrange meetings with mimic pal officials, Mr. Colborne sai The minister said the discu sions centred on measures ensure that the school system developed in an orderly waj to determine who is responsib for excess costs resulting fro initial uneconomical school o eration in a developing area and to see whether a better ternalive is the transportatio of students to existing facihtii until an area is large enough support its own school. 117 Candidates In The Running HALIFAX (CP) One hundred and seventeen candi- dates were officially entered Tuesday in the campaign for the Oct. 13 Nova Scotia general election. The Progressive Conservative party, headed by Premier G. I. Smith and seeking a fifth straight term in office, fielded a full slate of 46 candidates as did the Liberal opposition under Gerald Began. The New Democratic Party, which held no seats in the last legislature, will offer 23 candi- dates and there will be two in- dependents in the running. No other political parties are entered. Two NDP candidates nomi- nated earlier withdrew at the last, minute Tuesday and a third became a late-starter, filing pa- pers just before nominations closed at 3 p.m. The two independents were tlso late entrants. Numerically, the field of can- didates is almost identical to the situation in the last election In 1967 when both the PCs and liberals offered full slates, the NDP had 24 'U' Qasses Closed Down In Dispute SUDBURY, Ont.

The formal motion, which to a iaculty strike against the board of governors, calls lor a "recess" of classes, beginning Thursday. "The whole structure of uni- versity government is in ques- said Prof. Wesley Cragg, one of two non-voting senate representatives on the board of governors. He said the senate wants as- surance that "the views of fac- ulty and students and adminis- tration will be reflected in uni- versity policy as determined by the board." STARTED LAST SPRING The feud between the board, which is made up of appointees from the community, and the senate has been simmering since spring. The senate has 36 elected faculty members, six elected students and 22 senior administrators such as the president and deans. Early Lliis year the scnalc voted non-confidence in Lauren- tian president Stanley Mullins. When the board's executive committee refused to accept Mr. Mullins' resignation the se- nate extended its censure to the executive committee. After a sit-in by the students and cancellation of final exams by the senate, the executive committee capitulated and re- placed Mr. Mullins. As the current term began, faculty members expressed dis- satisfaction with the executive more than this ther were two independents. Prominent members of th last legislature not offering thi time include Provincial Seer tary E. D. Haliburton, former Municipal Affairs Minister Don aid MacNeil and former indus- tr" minister E. A.

"I've been in show business for 41 of my 44 years, and it's just gotten too heavy, lie said. "Mentally and physically, I've had it. I'm going to get out of the business and put myself back together." There's no doubt about li- the Edmonton United Commu- nity Fund would like to havn more donors like Cecil Burgess, who celebrates his 100th birth- day Oct. 4. Mr. Burgess was among tho first to stand up and be count- ed when the volunteer fund was starling 10 years ago when he decided to contribute his old age pension cheque each month So far, this donation has amounted to more than UCF officials said today. Mr. Burgess, who receives three other pensions, said in an interview he has "enough to get by on what's left" without the monthly old age cheque. Walter Wclr, leader of the Manitoba Progressive Conser- vatives, says he will seek an endorsement of his leadership at tho party's annual genera! meeting, Nov. 21-22. Mr. Weir made the announce- ment to delegates to the Young Conservative sem- SAIIMY DAMS, JR. Slows Down inar, but the decision "didn't go far enough" for the young PCs, who later passed a resolution calling for an immediate lead- ership convention. Hugh Conway, 56, a Vancou- ver born engineer, will take over one of the top Jobs in Rolls Royce Ltd. Oct. 1 at Derby, England. He now is managing director of the com- pany's Bristol eng i n e division and will become group manag- ing director with over all re- sponsibility for the company's four gas-turbine divisions. Graft Skin Onto Boy TORONTO (CP) Doctors at Scarborough General Hospital have grafted skin from four members of a family onto boy badly burned when he fell into a hot-spring pool in Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. Aug. 28. "He's a said Ed- ward Smith, father of 14-year- old Cameron, in an interview ID his hospital room. "Everything from his waist down, except the soles of his feet, is covered with skin grafts." He said he, his wife and two other sons all donated patches of skin. After the accident, which ab- ruptly ended the family's vaca- ion in Wyoming, the boy was aken to hospital in Salt Lake 3ry, Utah. He was transferred o Toronto Sept. 20 in a Cana- dian Armed Forces plane. Edmonton Report Clears Official EDMONTON muni- cipal report released here clear- ed Public Works Commissioner Dudley Menzies of any wrong- doing in two city land deals. Alderman Ed Leger said however, the report on his al- legations of possible negRect of duty is a "mish-mash" and "downright untruthful" in places. The report was fabled at a special council means there can be no furth- er action on it unless the report is raised by an alderman and he succeeds in gaining the sup- port of a majority of council. REPORT CRITICAL The report was critical of Alderman Leger, particularly of the manner in which the charges were made. It referred to "wild accusations." Alderman Leger said the deci- sion to table the report was "an attempted whitewash" and "not fair to me or anyone else." The report, in addition to ab- solving Mr. Menzies, recom- mended that rules of procedure be set up to cover the handling of complaints against officials or to facilitate investigations "in a manner that will protect the reputation of the official from any unwarranted attacks or criticism." The charges against Mr. Men- zies vere made by Alderman Leger in a notice of motion on Dec. 20, 1968. The alderman said there was a "grave dere- liction of responsibility with re- spect to the H u b e r property which could have been expen- sive to the city" and that Mr. Menzies "failed to fully dis- close the contents of an offer to sell" the DeMilo property. Ex-Magistrate Faces Charge TORONTO (CP) Fred Ban- non, who resigned as a magis- trate in 1968 during a public in- quiry into his behavior and was disbarred as a lawyer earlier this year, was charged Tuesday with defrauding a client at between 1966 and 1969. Baraion, 36, was released on bail and remanded to Oct. The 1968 inquiry found that Bannon, while a magistrate, had carried on business and personal relationships with a man facing trial on burglary charges. He was disbarred earlier this year by the Law Society of Upper Canada which found him guilty of professional miscon- duct.
