Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Notley blasts pay scale Committee makes recommendation EDMONTON (CP) Grant Notley, Alberta New Democratic Party leader, said Sunday the provincial government is treating its employees callously. Mr Notley, in a news release, said that in spite of a recent seven-per-cent pay increase to Alberta civil ser- vants, clerical workers with the provincial government still earn less than their counterparts in Edmonton City Hall. The NDP leader released statistics obtained from the provincial Manpower and Labor Department showing the starting wage for clerk typists in the Alberta civil ser- vice is a month less than that paid by Edmonton and a month below the rate paid by the City of Calgary. Noting the revenue position of the municipalities is weak compared with that of ihe provincial government and its huge windfall from oil revenues, Mr. Notley said the Progressive Conservative government is not paying its workers competitive salaries. Satellite town proposed EDMONTON (CP) The federal government has a proposal to establish a satellite town for between 000 and persons west of here. Mayor Ivor Dent says. Mayor Dent said several federal departments are interested in having a portion of land held by the Enoch In- dian band turned into a town sometime in the future. He said the question was brought up at a meeting between city officials and Edmonton-area MPs. Annexation vote 'unfair' CALGARY (CP) Mayoralty candidate Ross Alger has asked the province to take a question on annexa- tion off the ballot in the up- coming civic elections. Mr. Alger says he made the request because of questions raised by a secret study reportedly dealing with a potential monopoly situation in land development and construction materials. "I am convinced that it is unfair to ask the citizens to vote on annexation until all the facts have been he said There been no response from the provincial government. Vacation a near disaster EDMONTON (CP) A seriously-ill Edmonton man who was trapped by war in northeastern Cyprus arrived home safely on Saturday and was immediately taken to University Hospital. Nicolas loannides, his wife Iphigenia, and their four children arrived on a military transport aircraft after being rescued from the Cypriot village of Zirokarpason, where they were vacationing when war broke out. Mr. loannides, who is suf- fering from a brain tumor, was "in need of intensive his wife said in an interview after arriving at the Canadian Forces Base at Namao, just north of the city.

The 265 page report, researched jointly by staff from the provincial Health and Social Development Department and the Alberta Council on Aging, said there was an abundance of evidence showing that elderly persons living in the community were leading "more satisfied and contented lives, and feel more a part of the community" than those in institutions. But many persons living in the community were "subtly forced" into because therc not enough support !hem in twines. "An image seems to emerge that a sizeable number of the elderly in institutions feel they now live in a rather restricted, meaningless worid, detached from She out- side community. Written bnefs. reports and studies as well as a random survey of 500 Southern Aiberta senior citizens indicated that home support programs such as snow removal painting. repairs, visits and employ- ment were needed. To combal the "apathetic, resigned attitude to life" of many elderly in institutions. the report recommended a special training program for medical professionals, in- stitutional staff and ad- ministrators The report said current approaches don't show suf- ficient understanding of the need for the elderly tc be treated as individuals, and a humanizing dimension should be built into programs. A network of flexible programs and services is needed, with a "strong co or- dinating structure on a provincial as well as a com- munity level." The report also found that, although almost everyone felt some preparation for retire- ment was required, few had made any such preparation. It suggested an educational program of pre retirement planning be directed at both the elderly and employers. But. the report concluded, "until society rediscovers the intrinsic value of its older citizens. return? them to R waningful role in solely, (he success of any program will be minimal. Conviction protested WINNIPEG About 50 persons gathered in front of the legislative building here Saturday to protest the con- viction of Dr. Henry Morgenthaler of Montreal The protesters, mostly women, waved placards and shouted slogans against .the federal government's refusal to allow abortions on demand Sponsors of the protest meeting said it was one of several demonstrations being hdd across Canada some return on its investment." Mr. MacNeil said some of the findings "are likely to create controversy" and the committee said there is a deep mistrust by the public on the question of quotas in cer- tain university faculties. The committee found "suspicion in the minds of people that the professional associations are restricting the size of faculties in order to protect the professions." The obvious information gap between the public and the university on quotas has created "hostility and distrust with the result that the univer- sity's image is taking a Mr. MacNeil said. Mr. MacNeil's committee also was critical of the provin- cial government. The committee, in its report to the Senate, said there was a lack of understanding between the Advanced Education Department and university authorities and that the provincial government failed to take a "position on setting the ultimate enrolment of the university." The committee said univer- sity regulations require that enrolment in any faculty or school be limited to the number of students that can be accommodated. When applicants outnumber openings, they are selected in the order of academic standing with priority given Alberta residents. Limited enrolment now ex- ists in dentistry, dental hygiene, engineering, fine arts, law, library science, medical laboratory science, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical education, and rehabilitation medicine programs. In 1973. Dentistry accepted 13 per cent 50 of 381 first year applicants. Law had openings for 24 per cent, 180 of 752 and Medicine enrolled 118 of 646 applicants or 18 per cent Shareholder's PWA allegations 'absurd' Getty VANCOUVER (CP) An Alberta Cabinet minister denies the suggestion that ma- jor shareholders solicited the Alberta government takeover of Pacific Western Airlines Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Donald R. Getty, in Vancouver for the Western Premiers' Conference, said the PWA shareholder who made the charge "is so far off base that it's just absurd." Chris Harder, who holds one share of PWA stock, said in Edmonton he intends to file an action in British Columbia Supreme Court for the release of information related to the purchase Aug. 1 of the airline He said major shareholders had asked for the takeover because they expected the stock to decrease in value. Alberta could have purchas- ed the airline for million less than the million paid to gain almost complete control, Mr. Harder said. Mr. Getty said information relating to the deal would probably be made public dur- ing the fall session of the Alberta legislature. PWA Board Chairman Bruce C. Samis says the charge is "absolute "We had no prior knowledge of the buyer and it was not documented until we had agreed on the price and agreed to sell if the buyer was he said in an interview here. PWA President Donald N. Watson said "the Alberta government had never con- tacted us and we had never contacted them He said PWA stock had bot- tomed out before the takeover at about a share which he said was about half the net worth of the company. Alberta paid a share for PWA stock.
