A seven matt independent Electoral Boundaries Commis- boliday services curtailed. sion early this spring proposed to the legislature that the cur- rent constituency be split into Henderson Lake and Oldman River ridings. The additional riding, com- bined with new ones in Calgary and Edmonton, will bring the provincial hence from 63 to 75 seats. The election of executives in the new Lethbridge ridings is art of the Conservative plan o have candidates named as ar as possible before the gen- eral election. Dr. Axford indicated the first Hera of business for the Hen- derson Lake, riding will be ac- cumulation of n a m e s of pros- pective candidates and the set- ing of a date for a nomina- ion meeting. The Henderson Lake execU: live includes also: Dwight Jen- sen, Dick Johnson, Bill John- and Blayne Thacker as vice presidents; Richard Long, treasurer and Denlse Ferguson, secretary. Barry Snowden, assistant to the U of L vice president and one ot four vice-presidents of the new Oldman River PC As- sociation, was named acting- pifcsktent of the association.

PrwM J2MUI e 170S Mayor Phm 3JS-7755 Catering Problem The city manager was in- structed to proceed with a re- port on what can be done about the Lethbridge Community Col- lege and other organizations competing with legitimate busi- nesses in the food service in- dustry. Aid. C. W. Cnicoester main- tains that restaurants, cafes and other commercial food ca- terers pay piuperty tax, busi- ness fax and licence fees to the city in order to operate while the catering department o( the LCC and some other organiza- tion pay none of those fees. LCC is subsidized by funds derived from taxation and uses unpaid student labor to pre- pare food and services, Aid, Chichester said. LCC and other organizations are directly competing with the legitimate business enterprises by offering their food services and are catering both 'on and off their properties to the gen. eral public, thereby creating unfair competition to the li- censed caterers, he said. .Aid. Chichester suggested the LCC and such other organiza- tions be requested to refrain from catering to or serving the general public; or that legal ad- vice be obtained on establish- ing control of their activities regarding, public catering or requiring that they take out li- ceoceE and pay the same city taxes as legitimate caterers. AW. Joe BaUa told council the LCC tried to do its cater- ing outside the city where there were no catering services, in order to give the students ex- perience at catering, but that didn't work out too well. The college is keeping its catering down as much as possible, he indicated. Last year the school bus ser- vice provided by the city result- ed in revenue of almost The same revenue is budgeted for this year. The largest single expense Ibis year is operators' wages budgeted at compared with spent last year. Expenditures to operate the system last year totalled 309 budgeted this year) and revenue was 200 budgeted this year.) AM.' Koteh figures there is a way to make the city's transit system at least a break-even proposition aod still provide a service which would amount to an initial inconvenience to only a few.
