Negotiations were carried out between the board and the Separate School Board and the religious orders who operated the seven private schools in the city. Cost for use of the buildings for a one-year period will be J971.304. PS Board Meets Thursday On Journal Offer fori.and The Ottawa Journal's bid of $2,019,000 for the Kent Street School site was approved Monday by the Ottawa Public School Board's finance committee. ( Formal approval of the board will be given Thursday. , The finance committee considered one other bid of $2,-010,000 from Gillin Engineering and Construction Mid. of Ottawa at the meeting Monday, But the committee headed by Dr. D. G. Kelley and a special sub-committee set up to handle '"I - . ' disposal of the land recommended acceptance of the higher bid from The Journal. The bid was approved1 by all trustees except lawyer Ken Murchison, who abstained for professional reasons. The sale of the Kent Street property gives trustees Roy Bushfleld, J. D. Stuart and Mrs. Eva Berry particular satisfac-tkm, as -all three have been pressing the ' board for some years now to dispose of the property by tender. The last offer made to the board in October, 1967, before tenders were called, was an unsolicited bid by a local realtor for $27 square foot The Journal's offer is approximately $29 a square foot for the site i At the meeting Monday, the finance committee also decided to seek approval from the city for $364,000 for the Charles H HuLse "School addition and $627,000 for the new South keys School, netic field.'

BLAMES REGIONAL GOVT 'Plugged Pump' Causing Pollution Part of Nepean. township's sewer and water problems have been blamed on the province's implementation of regional government Reeve Aubrey Moodie said Monday he has been trying for three years to get facilities in the township completed. But according to the reeve, "the province has been holding back since regional government has been talked of." CAUSE PINPOINTED Township engineer S. G. Chip-man told council the cause of the trouble that allowed large amounts of sewage to be dumped into the Rideau River originated with a "plugged pump" at the Woodroffe Avenue pumping station. He said the pump had not been functioning for three weekSL A workman from the Ontario Water Resources Commission is due Wednesday. i I And because of drainage problems in the Knoxdale-Greenbank Roads area, council failed Monday to approve a 300-home subdivision man. There will be no more plans approved for the area until we get the engineering problem solved," said Deputy Reeve Ed Halt REGIONAL MEMBER Council aDDOinted councillor Dr. Grant Carman as a member of the regional council. A 12-year veteran of township politics, he led the polls in the last five election. Also sittinc on the regional council will be Reeve Moodie and Deputy Reeve Hall.- ' Inauguration or townsnip nlanninc board is being studied by council Council said ii felt if n didn't have a body to make recommendations to the regional council, it would have no say in the township's develop ment ' However, the communication lines are still open. In fact, an informal meeting has been arranged for next week. But board officials stress they can't up the offer. "We've made our final offer," said board deputy superintendent Dr. H, L Willis. "There's Just) no more money available." The board hopes that a settlement can be reached. What the board has offered in effect is a four per cent raise. But if the annual increment is included it would bring the overall increase up to eight or nine per cent ' . The' increment is one of the sticking points. Teachers want an increment of $500 a year. The board has, in some cases, came up to $400. Dr. Willis said the increment level teachers want will probably come in time but not this year. "We're down to the last penny in our salary budget," be said. Dr. Willis said he was pleased with the high level of talks. He said there has been no threats of strike or work to rule made by the teachers' representatives. "They are being very professional about it" remarked Dr. Willis. Ten Buildings Leased For French Classes teasing arrangements for the use of II buildings to teach some I.tOO students In the French language have been com- This includes lighting, beating and caretaking services. To cover costs, the board will be re ceiving special grants from the province. A building at Mont St Joseph on Springfield Road will be used to accommodate Grade II stadents. It is believed It is the time Grade 11 elasse will be taught in the French lan guage in Ontario. The board did not buy any of the buildings because a number wiD. be gradually phased out when a new French language high school is completed in Lower Town. Regarding construction plans of the new composite school for Lower Town, the board sent a letter to Mayor Reid and Board of Control requesting the site of the new school be made known as soon as possible. The school is scheduled to open in September. 171. New Officers Nicholas Hartgerink has been elected president of the' Fisher Park Community. Council for 1968-69 at the annual meeting. Others elected were J. Cos-tello, J. Feiner and Mrs. May Nixon, vice-presidents; Miss N. Park, treasurer, B. Riley, secre tary. The National Arts Centre unveiled , its mobile theatre before an enthusiastic audience and quite a few dive-bombing mosquito at Kanata Monday night The mime and musical performance was really a preview for The Portage, as the travelling actors and their theatre are called. JUST PRACTISING The curtain will be -official ly raised next Monday and troupe is using this week polish up its mimes and the hang pf setting up . segments of the ocean floor made from the readings indicates that the spreading, starts along the mid-Atlantic Ridge and moves east and west The mid-Atlantic Ridge is an undersea mountain range running the length of the Atlantic Ocean. It ha - counterparts in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Dr. Peter Hood, a Geologi cat Survey geophysicist on the mapping project, says changes in the. earth's magnetic field give the ocean floor rocks dat able magnetic cnaractensucs. And .it ij jhese magnetic characteristics, varying over time for hundreds of millions of years that the magnetometer senses. Thus, the ocean floor rocks are found to be older near the continents -and ramser nearer the Ridge. JfMr. Godby says the spreading occurs equally east and west away from the ridge and at a constant ra'e of about one centimeter per year. At this rate, a four-inch strip the length of the Atlantic Ocean is extruded at the mid-At Untie Ridge and moves to wards either Halifax and England, -Argentina or South Africa. North America and Europe were probably Joined about ISO million years ago, accord ing to Mr. Hood. But whether the spreading has been con tinuous since then or even al ways centred along the mid- Atlantic Ridge is open to ques tion. PAUSE NOTED The ocean bottom 125 miles wide on either side of the ridge representing the most recent 10 million years or movement correlates well with results in other parts of the world. But initial study mdi cates that there was a pause between about 50 million years sgo and 10 million years ago. There is no explanation pre sented for such a hiatus. Mr. Godby says that before 10 million years ago the spreading may have centred on two ridges that are now Inactive and possibly hidden un- dec. ocean bottom sediment But be stresses . that this theory is very tenuous. Scientists the world over are studying the mid-ocean ridges and the rocks on their flanks. The current explanation for the upwelling and consequent spreading focuses on giant heat cells within the liquid mantle of the earth. PUSHED ALONG The mid-ocean ridges would' be areas where hot material is surfacing. Cooled material, in the form of solid rock, would be pushed along the ocean floor to eventually dip back down into the mantle at the continent edges. This process pushes the continents. The recent 16,000-mile round trip marks the end of this summer season's continental drift investigation. Results of part of the study are being submitted to the Journal of Geophysical Research for pub lication. In the meantime, the plane will be given its regular major check-up and sent off with the same equipment to work for the national defence department , j The same techniques, that can detect sea floor rocks are being modified to help detect the steel hulls of underwater i submarines. . I completely self '- contained along with lights and sound in a large trailer! The troupe consists of five actors, one stage manager and one truck driver. There is no stage crew so they have to erect and strike the set themselves. For the first season, which ends Aug. 30, the players will put on performances at playgrounds and community centres within a 2(Kmile radius of Ottawa. The project Is basically for legg arc . children and The Portage is expected to 'provide good live theatre experience for them.' - CURIOUS CROWD .

NRC and the Geological Sur vey are studying the hows and whys of a conveyor belt ride being given the North American and European continents. A sensitive airborne magnetometer built by NRC is mapping the rocks making up the Atlantic Ocean's undersea conveyor belt North American and Europe and all that's on them are being slowly pushed apait-by material surfacing from below the earth's crust 'Geologists andt geophysicists know this hotly-discussed phenomena as continental drift Intense research indicates It's happening and to all continents. Ensley A. Godby, an NRC aeromagnettcs scientist says the sensitive magnetometer was given three round-trips across the North Atlantic between Newfoundland. Ireland and Greenland this month. The towing plane flew 1,000 feet above the ocean surface. - - A magnetometer senses min ute changes caused by magnetized objects in the earth's mag That's how simple it is when you have five actors and their 53-by-15-foot stage, complete with lighting and sound equipment all wrapped up in this large tractor-trailer van.
