Enlarge Space For Bird Paradise Permission was given, the Leth- ijridge Junior Chamber of Com- merce Monday evening by the city council to enlarge the former board of trade building to adequately pro- vide for the housing cf the wild life museum operated there by Wal- ter Gurney. This authority was given after the Jaycees explained Mr. Gurney had more exhibits to display but lacked the accommodation. "The junior chamber proposes contacting the service clubs in the city in this regard, and no expense whatsoever will accrue to Use city treasurer" in connection with the expansion, added the Jaycees. It was estimated that the con- struction would cost about S60G.

Leighton of Calgary. He was introduces! to the meeting by S. Rooke. Mr. Leighton described the vari- ous kinds of insurance interests, and explained the different methods employed by insurance companies to determine just how much insur- ance rates will be. He told of the raanv valuable services, outside the actual business of insurance, which are carried on by the ance companies as a general to the public. These additional services are financed by the insur- ance comuanies themselves, he said. Referring EO the "Clean up Week" and Prevention Mr. Leighton said these programs were endorsed and supported by the underwriters associations. In the course of these programs many dormant fire hazards are discovered and removed, he said, reminding all those who might take pare in cam- j paigns that in. so doing tJiey would be participating in a true- public service.

It has also approached the city council for permission to en- large the premises in order to pro- Tide much-needed rojam for the dis- play. Any such building program would noi be carried out with a view of making the building into a permanent site for the wild life museum, however, and in their communication to the council the Junior Chamber suggested that the disulay be moved into the present library building in the event that the public library be transferred to a new location. It was also suggest- ed that in the event that the librarv be set up in the civic centre, that the wild life display be incor- porated as part of the Horary, Reports with, respect to the pro- gress being made on the Junior Chamber's tourist bureau were given at the meeting, and activities of the film committee were briefly reviewed. Other reports dealt with the activities of the health and welfare committee and the munici- pal affairs committee. Duties of the rehabilitation com- mittee are rapidly disappearing, it was disclosed. Although the com- mittee had done- a real job in the past, at the present time the various government officials handling rehabilitation have the matter well in hand, and there is very little that the city of Lethbridge cannot afford to lose anything, particularly an exhibit such as the one now in Gait Gardens. This museum is one of! now-may be done to the best tourist attractions that! reporter! su the city has to oSer, and immed- iate action must be taken to en- sure the retention of this museum in Lethbridge-" Last year, council was told, viewed "the display.
