A plan for a school to be built by the Hutterian brethren of the Plain View Colony was tabled by the school committee. Said Coun.

The request was made by Frank Merkl. chairman of Disabled on the Move, on behalf of a project known as the Lethbridge Aid for Disabl- ed and Elderly Citizens. Mr. Merkl also asks in the letter that sidewalks down- town be constructed with a ramp at corners, and that the council give consideration to using some of the city's 000 annual transportation grant from the province for transportation facilities for the handicapped. "Those of us not confined to a wheelchair do not realize the problem curbs pose to those who are handicapped." he says.

Or one must be accompanied by another person who is capable and knowledgeable in the handling of wheelchairs." needed for insect battle Another is needed to continue the program of spraying flies and mosquitos to the end of the season, says Aid.

By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FOREMOST County of Forty Mile councillors Fri- day were treading very softly in discussion of a possible 000 to outlay for three- fire engines. They wouldn't say "yes" and they wouldn't say "no." But they decided to make a decision after the Oct. 16 municipal election. It will end 10 months of confinement in the county "think tank" without a decision. The proposal was brought to coun- cil late in 1973. Friday Coun. Ed Torsher of Bow Island said an investment of budgeted over five years would require a IVi- mills increase in the tax rate. "Right said Coun. William Kenneth Babe, "with the government taking off 29 mills it would practically be painless When it first came to the council table it was suggested the units would cost each but later council learned the price could go as high as each. Councillors have had little success in getting ratepayers in the sprawling county to agree to spending on three new units. It all seems to hinge on where the units are going to be stationed. Coun. Marg Dragland of Conquerville has always maintained one truck would be as good as three if it was parked at Etzikom. Coun. Torsher is on record as saying the citizens of Burdett and Bow Island are enthusiastic about rural fire protection. Coun. William George McFall of Etzikom is not enthusiastic. Friday he urged a "go slow" policy and he has been known to criticize the plan. At one time he said, only salvation is possibly saving some other buildings (than the ones on Friday Coun. McFall said: "I would like to consult my ratepayers a little bit more." He said some Etzikom men have indicated they don't want to stay home on the weekends to man a fire truck. Said Coun. Torsher: "This is something those Bow Island boys do. They divided into brigades. If the fire chief says stay home this week, you are on fire they stay home.'' Coun. Torsher said if coun- cillors will make their stand known before the Oct. 16 elec- tion the voters will speak. But Coun. Russell Scratch of Foremost came flat out for the fire trucks. "I kind of think we are being too he said. "I think we should have this protection I think we are remiss in not having it earlier we are one oi the few (counties and municipalities in Alberta) that don't have it."
