(Asso- ciation of Movie and then buy all the members one-way tickets to Timbuktu. Movie wreckers have a fantastic way of turning a good movie into a bad temper. Voici: "Dum dee dum" you hum cheerfully as you slide down into the movie theatre chair. With a little yoga, you manage "gracefully" to cross your legs. As the lights dim and the roar of voices simmers, you suddenly become very aware of a large head directly in front. You move to the right, the head moves to the right; you move to the left, the head leans also to the left. Finally, you compromise and watch the back of his head. Then you no more get the hero of the cartoon tossed over a cliff and blown up by a piece of dyna- mite than you realize you're blocking the path of a man holding three packages of popcorn and two precarious looking glasses pf cola. You unravel and stand up, but not quite soon enough to avoid a sticky shower. Ah, but it's okay, you assure the fellow what's a little cola on a suede jacket? And then, just as you begin to get involved in the mishpas of Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis, you become aware of a voice. An. M.W. is busy at work. Now, an M.W. is a very knowledgeable person. In fact, he's probably the most informed person in the theatre as far as the movie is concerned. He's seen it before. At first you don't really mind. Actually, you'd kind of like to know what's going to happen next. And then be begins to give a point by point monologue of what's happening: "It's going to rain Ya see, told rain- ing. And then they go the wrong way. They get soakin' wet. D'ya want me to tell ya what happens at the No! no! no! You scream to yourself. You turn and give him a vicious glare, but the attention you're giving him is unrequited and he merrily rattles on. "Then they go to You can feel your temper roaring up through your stomach, you grit your teeth, hold onto your chair, and shake ivith fury. Finally, you stand up to tell the movie wrecker to "S-h-u-t But M.W. has gone for popcorn. You sit back down and wonder what's been happening in the movie.

PHONE 327-2822 By HERB .JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter The M u n i c i p a I Planning 'ommission this week re- ffirmed its tough line on base- lent suite regulations. Chairman Joe Balla said the ommission's policy would re- nain unchanged, following a iscussion of permits being aken out for developed base- ments in single-family houses. Tosh Kanashiro, city build- ig inspector, told the meeting lore people are now taking out 2rmits for basements that in- lude kitchens for their own se. These are permissible, he said, as long as they arc used by the owner, possibly as a summer kitchen. Problems arise when another family unit lives in the base- .ment. ?.s happens when the family of a married son or daughter moves in. He suggested the paying of rent by the family living in the basement should not necessar- ily be the criterion for whether the house would be classified as a single or two-family resi- dence. This should be determined on the basis of the actual number of family units in the house that are maintaining separate living facilities. A factor in de- irmining this, he said, should j 3 whether there were scpar- to the planning commission lists the minimum specifica- tions required by the National be ate kitchen facilities for each cial board of health. made regularly for infractions of the regulations.

While both lists of rules arc The discussion was a follow-1 concerned with the welfare and of the occupants, there are some differences. The university, for example, up to last week's decision by the commission to refuse a re- quest from Dwight Jensen, housing officer for the Univer- sity of Lethbridge, that the city relax its regulations concern- ing basement suites in order to requires that there be at least one window in each room. The board of health and NBC re- quirement is that the window dents. In written submission to provide more housing for stu- area be at least 10 per cent of the floor area and that at least half of the window7 can be opened for ventilation, unless some other means is provided for admitting fresh air. Mr. Kanashiro also recom- mended that an NBC require- the commission Mr. Jensen said there were only 20 base- ment suites and 25 housekeep- ing units listed with his office for the 1969 fall term.

The university rules contain nothing about the num- ber of exits. A spokesman for the Lefh- bridge Health Unit said there are other health department rules, put into effect this year, that his department is respon- sible for enforcing. Rooms used for sleeping may not contain a gas cooking range it must be electric and heating facilities must be suf- ficient to maintain a room tem- perature of at least 70 degrees. The spokesman said the health unit has an extensive list of houses that have been inspected and that checks arc ers are instructed to have changes made. If these are not done, the department has the authority to have the building, or a part of it, condemned. The regulations apply only if the suite is being rented. Own- ers may use a basement room with no windows, for example, but they may not rent it. Another consideration is brought out in a report to the MFC by Erwin Adderley, exec- utive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission. He notes that requirements for minimum lot size and floor levels would have to be re- duced for all development, both present and future, if the city is to avoid discriminating against those persons building new two-family units. Special rules for suites al- ready built would discriminate against future developers and 'across the board" relaxation would seriously interfere with the maintenance of high-quality over-all development, he said. had been spent for pro- isions such as clothing and sundries. The budget for room and board, estimated at was over-spent by and the itilities budget was over he estimate. AUister Findlay, city finance director, said last month when t became apparent that Leth- bridge was being faced with he same problem encountered this year by many cities across Canada, that there was noth- ing to do except spend the money that was required. He emphasized that the prov- ince picks up 80 per cent of the cost of welfare payments and that the current deficit works out to about: for the city. A total of 219 persons re- ceived social assistance in July this year, compared with 206 in June and 205 in May. This is in sharp contrast to previous years, in which iha welfare rolls show a decline in the summer months. Unemployment problems have been blamed for the continued high welfare payments during what is usually a period of peak employment. would not have any great effect on the deficit. When the province stopped sharing these costs July 1 the city adopted its former policy of paying clothing and house- hold allowances as necessary. These payments are now made only in cases where it can be illustrated that there is a definite need. The cost is then shared on an 80-20 basis, as before. MOVING?
