Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING Itchy bacon If meat boycotts continue to attract housewives and other consumers, this potential Easter ham may go right on scratching his way through the barnyard. Found wan- dering around a country road east of Lethbridge, this porker seems blissfully unaware of his culinary fate. If shopping prices are lowered for pre-Easfer bargains, or if local families decide to abandon a preference for fish and fowl, there will be no guessing about who's coming to dinner. Council briefs West side plans go to MFC City council went into closed session Monday to dis- cuss West Lethbridge poli- cies, based on development proposals unveiled last week. April 16 to 20 has been re- served by City Manager Tom Nutting for dealing with de- velopment on the west side, including talks with local housing- contractors. The comprehensive siting plans and written regulations for West Lethbridge are to be submitted to the Municipal Planning Commission Wed- nesday, and afterwards dealt with by council. The West Lethbridge plan cats for 100 homes and a major park and lake to ba birilt this year in the new subdivision. Council turned down a re- quest by Dr. C. D.- Stewart to rename 43rd Street Game Farm Road. Dr. Stewart, who owns the game farm told council the tourist attraction is difficult for tourists to find and he said renaming 43rd Street would help to identity its lo- cation. Dr. Stewart said his re- quests to the province to erect highway directional signs to the game farm had been turned down by the de- partment of highways. Aldermen agreed that while the game farm should be supported as a tourist attrac- tion, renaming 43rd St. was asking just a little too much. They decided instead to support a reapplicaticn for highway signs. tf City administrative staff can breathe easier today. Council approved for city hall renovations in- cluding improvements to the veniillation system to sscond Foor offices that was turned down two wcsks ago. City Manager Tom Mut- iing told council renovations to city hall over the years had reduced the effectiveness of its heating and cooling sys- tems to the point where em- ployees were bringing in their own electric heaters in the winter and air condition- ing units in the summer. The major part of the ex- penditure will go to install two roof- mounted heating- cooling units tor the top floor. Council had-earlier- defer- red the request for a report from its committee studying city hall expansion, but was told Monday the improve- ments would not be affected by expansion. T w o aldermen protested the unfairness of home cccu- pation licence fees to no avail Monday as council voted to turn down three submissions from music teachers for re- lief from the fee charged this year. The letters came from a piano teacher who has only four students and who said the fee would amount to one month's income, a music teacher who felt the on her annual gross income of was unreasonable, and from a university ar.d a col- lege student who said they teach only a few students and find the fee far out of line, most unfair and one they could not afford. A1 d. Vaughan Hembroff said he couldn't see taxing these people. "Surely we are not yet so big we can't give exceptions in special circumstances." Aid. Steve Kotch said the reasoning behind the increase was to try and combat the conflict between peaole run- ning a home occupation and those with established busi- nesses in offices paying utili- ties and business taxes. He said he didn't see any way t h a t a kindergarten or music teacher was in conflict with businesses and that they should only be taxed to cover administration costs of the li- cence. Aid. Vera Ferguson remind- ed council, however, that the matter had already been dealt with in the home occu- pation bylaw and a subse- quent amendment allowing exemption for handicapped people passed by council, and the threa requests were voted down. Dr. Seward Smith and L. F. were appointed by council to three year terms on the library board Monday. Grants to various organi- zations totalling were approved by city council Monday. The grants, recommended by the community services advisory committee went to the YWCA, Lethbridge Sym- phony Association. Canadian Mental Health Association, Lethbridge Collegiate Band Uniform Society, Rosalta House Society, Lethbridge and District Horticultural So- ciety and the Lethbridge Re- gional Science Fair. A petition signed by 55 peo- ple asking for a 3 p.m. bus service from the University of Lethbridge was received by city council Monday. Council was S2t to approve operation of a bus at that time for a 30-day trial period until told by City Manager Tom Nutting it would be im- possible to provide at this' time. The s e r v i c e will have to wait until delivery of new buses promised for Novem- ber or December.

Chick Chichester resigns after 5 years on council By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer In a move that caught most of his fellow aldermen by sur- prise, Aid. Chick Chichester resigned from city council Monday. SUPER GROUP FORMED A sportsplex super commit- tee with power to approve contracts up to with- out prior city council approv- al was formed Monday. Alderman gave unamimous consent to a bylaw creating the precedent-setting commit- tee which will handle all as- pects of construction of the S3.1 million 1975 Canada Win- ter Games facility. Named to the sportsplex de- velopment committee were Aldermen Cam Barnes and Vaughan Hembroff, City Manager Tom Nutting, com- munity services director Bob Bartlett and engineering di- rector Randy Holfeld. Mayor Andy Anderson is automat- ically a member of the com- mittee as well. AH meetings of the commit- tee will be closed but the committes will be required to report to council at least ev- ery three months and to re- port to council all contracts it signs over The committee, which will be dissolved Aug. was set up specifically to see that the sportsplex is built in time for the 1975 Winter Games. Aid. Bill Kergan said it is the most important commit- tee council has ever set up, and city solicitor John Ham- mond said he believed it was the first such committee to be established in Alberta. Among its powers will be the authority to act on behalf of the city in supervising the agreement signed with the design, project management firm of Phillips, Barratt, Hil- lier. Jones and Partners, en- ter into any agreements with federal or provincial au- thorities including the Uni- veraity of Lethbridge and Lsthbridge Community Col- lege and to set up an ad- ministrative structure and operating guidelines for use of the sportsplex after the winter games. One of the first jobs of the committee will likely be to hire an arena manager. Council also gave unani- mous approval in principle to a draft agreement betweea the senior governments, the Lethbridge Southern Alberta 1975 Canada Winter Games Society and the city for the construction of facilities and staging of the winter games. News report in error The Herald April 5 incor- rectly reported that Henry Krahn, 2228 28th SL S., was fired after pleading guilty to a charge of impair- ed driving. In fact, Mr. Krahn had origiraiiy been charged with impaired driving and had en- tered no plea. Then, on April 2 the impaired driving charge was withdrawn and a charge of refusing to take a breath- alyzer test was laid. Mr. Krahn pleaded guilty !o this charge and was fined Citing personal and health reasons for his sudden de- parture, Aid. Chichester, who has served on council since 1968, said he will be leaving Lethbridge to travel for an extended period of time. Expressions of regret and tribute came immediately from the aldermen who have sat on the .present council with Aid. Chichester thrash- ing out. the city's business. Calling Aid. Chichester her first friend on council, Aid. Vera Ferguson was momen- tarily on the verge of tears. "I really feel she said. "I'll miss him very much. "He's leaving us at a time when we need him." Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said the city was losing a very good servant. "More than anyone else he was concerned with the little guy." Aid. Bill Kergan said Aid. Chiehester showed him the ropes on council. "As a newcomer, he was a guiding light to me." In his letter of resignation to council, Aid. Chichester said many personal factors entered into his decision. "It has been an honor and a pleasurable duty to serve the citizens of Lethbridge, spe- cifically through the last sev- eral years of growth, to which I hope I have contributed some small he said. "It is with regret the deci- sion has been made, however, I shall always feel a part of Lethbridge and hope to re- turn from time to time to the city which has been my home for such a long period of my life." Aid. Chichester's resigna- tion became effective imme- diately and he left council chambers shortly after coun- cil got down to its agenda. He said outside council chambjrs he felt his main contributions to council had been in housing and indus- trial development. He called the downtown re- development scheme a crown- ing achievement for the city, but had parting words cf con- cern about the West side de- velopment. "There will be there's too many restrictions he said. "You just can't tell people in Western Canada what col- or to paint their fences." Council was told no by- election is required to fill Aid. Chichester's seat which remain vacant until the nest municipal elections in I974. A byelection is required only in the event of a resig- nation during the first year after a municipal election or if two vacancies occur on council during the three-year term. Council is now left with tight members, but the even number will present no voting problems as a lie vote is con- sidered ,'cst. Aid. Chichester's resigna- tion also leaves the city po- lice commission with a va- cancy. A resident of the city for some 28 years. Aid. Chi- chester has long been active in community affairs, serv- ing as manager of the Nikka Yukko Centennial Garden, civil oefence director for She city, and as manager of the Lclh- bridge Symphony Society. Chick Chichester resigns from city council Police step up patrol for poachers The continued increase in the price of meat may cause crimes committed to obtain the commodity, according to city Police Chief Ralph Mich- elson. "There will no doubt be an increase in the number of thefts from packing plants, meat trucking firms, and break-ins at other outlets, as well as increased rustling and poaching of game." the chief said Monday. The Lethbridge force is ex- pecting the increase based on information they have receiv- ed, but Chief Michelson would not specify what information they are acting on. He said that while the main problem facing the city police would be break-ins and thefts, policemen will be watching for cases of poaching or rust- ling. Fraak Somervilie, regional fish and wildlife branch offi- cer, told The Herald he is not aware of any significant in- crease in poachng incidents. And managers of Canada Dressed Meats and Canada Packers both said that they have not forwarded any com- p'aints of meat theft 'to the city police within recent months. have had no discussion ClIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL lABfj MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. lower level PHONE with city police at all, and I have no reason for any fur- thur comment on it." Ross Held, plant manager of Can- ada Packers said. Archie Murphy, manager cf COM, said the possibility of meat theft exists, and that security precautions at CDM are "a little mere diligent re- cently." Chief Michelson said that many animals are killed by poachers and cattle thieves, although blame is often at- tached to careless hunters.
