LITHBRIDGE, A1BERTA Summer coming. ready wilh a poir oF Preicriplion Sungloiiei. Last of a series New major city ice arena would be wei! utilized ny IIUIIKE Hc-rald HUH Writer Who wrmld ad- minister anew arena is a ina- 4L jor u c s t i on whicli may lie determined by the location of the structure. A logical choice for tlic adinini- islratlvc task is l the community services deparlment of the city. That department is now re- sponsible f o r scheduling times at the three community ice surfaces, ll's a dfficult job. Time must, be found for games anil practices for the Junior A, jiu'cnile, minor, in- dustrial nml recreation hoc- key leagues, public and scp- arate school hockey and phy- sictil education, University ot Lclhbridije physical etluca- lion, figure skating, girl's hockey, broomball, child and adult skating inslruclion nnd public skating. Spokesmen for the depart- ment say they can fit all tho groups in, w i t h some jug- gling. The groups, particular- ly for minor hockey and fi- gure skating, say they do not have enough ice time, how- ever. Out-of-town groups were out of luck durini; the past, the facilities were hooked lull for local use. Community services direc- tor Dob Barllctt said his de- partment is working in con- junction with ttic arena con- sultants on the feasibility of a new facility. He witl be mak- ing a submission to city conn- with some recommenda- tions concerning management of an arena and the "feasibil- ity of operating iL without los- ing our shirt." That means finding a use for the arena during the sum- mer months, or whenever it is not used for skating. Medicine Hat, two-thirds the size of Lethbridgc, has had a new scat arena in oper- ation since October, 1970. In the first full year, there was an operating deficit of about the revenue was offset by a oper- ating cost. Hay Lambert, manager of the Medicine Hat arena, says he expects to "just about break even this year." During the hockey season, the revenue is set, Mr. Lam- bert said. The Medicine Uat Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League, drew fans for 37 league and play- off games. In the summer, there Is a six week figure skating school and a two week hoc- key school. Non-ice events in- clude the Shrine Circus, bin- BOS, a horse show, western stage shows and wrestling, among others. "We lake whatever bookings come Mr. Lambert said. A lot of the events can be fi- gured on an annual basis, ha added. Tlie Exhibition Pavil 1 o n here now accommo dates many of these events and the Exhibition board plans lo dou- ble the size of the building lo handle more. Thst structure is now used 270 days a year, which is almost capacity, Andy Andrews, Lethbridge and District Exhibition man- ager said. "And we turn down, quite a few." The expansion o[ the pa- vilion will not Include scats, Mr. Andrews said. It will in- clude pipes under the con- crete, as part of an ice-mak- ing process, and possibly an ice-making plant. "The new part of the build- ing will have the space lor scats (lo add to the ex- isting but someone will have to come up with the money." Money. That Is what city council will be thinking about when the question of a new arena comes up. What will it cosL? The Medicine Hat are- na was built lor Sl-2 million. At a preliminary meeting two montlis ago, the arena consul- tants suggested a 52.5 million figure for an arena here. The cost will be determined by the quality of building de- sired. It could be considerably less. If the downtown sile Is cho- sen, the taxpayers would foot the bill. If the arena is lo- cated either near Hie IjMh- bridge Community College or at the Exhibition Groimd.s, there is a chance of finan- cial assistance from one of the two ssnior levels o[ gov- ernment. Some of the local taxpayers nren't opposed to paying a little extra in taxes lo have an arena: "Taxes will go up anyway, so it might as well be for a good purpose'1 an- onymous. T. D. Allen of 021 12lh St. C N. said he would be clad to give a liltle extra l a x money for the arena. "We need an arena for 5.000 people, but it shouldn't be a William Chand- ler of 2208 Mayor Mngratli Drive said. Martha Gallinger of C21 St. S. says she will support construction of nn arena here "if they don'L overlook things like figure skating." Wilfied Mass, B2G IClh St. S i.s in favor of nn arena and soys ''if're (joing to liuild anything of a major nature, it should he big enough lo make it pay off." "An arena should be locat- ed whore the kids can get nt it for free says John Itccdyk of E02 8th SI. N. Sixteen people were asked If need n mrijor arena; only one gave a negative re- sponse. "The expense doesn't it. There are other nreas in the city we should concentrate says Mari< lyn Larson, 523 19lh'St. S. V.'hat can an arena be used for? Hockey, figure skating, the obvious uses.

Those wishing lo have a high calibre of hockey lo witness say yes.

The new facility would con- solidate all the research work into one building and result hi a closer liaison between scien- tists.
