It is a once in a life time says Mr. who assumed his new posi- tion July 16. He is the former manager of Delta Acceptance and former owner of Southern Collection Agency and S-L Agencies Ltd. Because of the regional concept of the winter games Mr. Lees says the co-opera- tion and involvement of all communities in the district is vital. Lethbridge is less than one third the size of any previous city which has staged the games and will to a greater extent than ever be- communities in the sur- rounding area. The winter games here is regarded as a pilot project which couJd be followed by other smaller cities staging the games if it is successful. Individuals respond So he the re- sponse from of first imortance in making the games a has been favorable. Mr. Lees gave two reasons for his assessment of the high community interest an increase in the number of people who have come for- ward to volunteer their ser- vices in some capacity since the Southern Alberta bid was appro and the reception given to a ceremonial torch parade that preceded the Canada Summer Games in Burnaby in July. The torch parade went through 13 Southern Alberta communities which will par- ticipate in the whiter games. people who partici- pated in the torch parade said that they were better here than anywhere else they said Ivir. Lees. He said the response to the Southern Alberta winter games delegation which went to Burnaby was also favor- able. Mr. Lees said that the ab- sence of a large metropoli- tan city in close proximity to Lethbridge would not handi- cap this area pointing out that most of the visitors to the games in Burnaby came from outside the area. Experience will help And he said that the exper- tise gained by organizers and volunteers in staging the Southern Alberta Games dur- i g the past four years in Pincher Clares- holm in Bow 1972 and this year in Ray- be for Southern Alberta invaluable. Mr. Lees says the major problem faced by the games society is that posed by transportation how to move athletes and spectators from the place of accommo- dation to communities host- ing the sporting events. A system of mass transpor- tation will have to be devel- oped and possible solutions are now being considered by the society. A second task facing the society is that of providing accommodation for the athletes and to 000 spectators who are ex- pected to view the games. Mr. Lees said that the so- ciety is now booking ac- commodation for officials from each provincial govern- the NWT and the Yu- kon who will accompany their athletes to the games.

The Alberta School Trus- tees' Association forwarded the Calgary Public School Board commissioned study suggests the basic building unit should be capable of ac- capting r e 1 o c a t able class- but should include permanent so- cial and ether neighborhood community facilities. The building unit would replace the old con- cept of constructing perma- nent school buildings design- ed to nreet'near peak project- ed enrolments. The task force also recom- mended a freeze on the con- struction of junior and senior high schools until expanded and improved busing pro- grams have allowed the board to take advantage of all spare classrooms. Should the provincial gov- ernment refuse to assist in the funding of neighborhood elementary basic building then the task force rec- ommends that neighborhood funding of these kinds of fa- cilities be considered. The public school board also be asked to support a pilot project of the Leth- bridge Association for the Mentally Retarded designed to bring the Eves of the men- tally retarded as close as pos- sible to normal. The project would .include residential educational training a crisis centre and parent assistance. In the letter requesting the board's the local as- sociation described the pro- ject as a demonstration plan to be observed by the rest of Canada. A requisition for renova- tion at Winston Churchill High School will also be pre- sented for the board's ap- proval. The school has requested that a regular classroom and infirmary be renovated into a working area for the new audio-visual technician at an estimated cost of Another request before the board tonight will be for the authorization to install un- derground television cables at the north end of the Win- ston Churchill High School site. The request is to be made by Cablevision Leth- bridge Ltd. In other Dr. C. P. is to recommend that the board continue to use the commit- tee-as-a-whole and the ad hoc committee system of managing the school system rather then revert to man- agement by standing com- mittee. The standing committee consists of a few board mem- bers assigned a specific in addition to their responsi- bility as board at the organizational meeting of the board. They operate throughout the year in the same standing committees. An example of a standing committee is a committee on finance or a committee on supplies. The committee-of-the-whole is an informal session of the board at which no official ac- tion is taken. It usually is called at the conclusion of a board meeting that was open to the public. The ad hoc committee is made up of members of the board that are appointed for a spe- cial purpose and discharged when their reports are ac- cepted by the board.

PHONE 328-0286 Power furnace cleaning By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Price and acreage controls at the producer level would be needed to make a success of an Alberta government proposal for more farmers' say local vegetable growers. idea of more farmers markets is good in principle but controls would be needed to prevent price wars be- tween the markets and large said one Taber producer. Alberta Agriculture Minis- Hugh Horner has offered to make money avail able through municipalities to as- sist the establishment of fanners markets in the prov- ince. Another Taber area pro- ducer feels that the sug- gestion would be good for small vegetable g r o farmers who could harvest enough produce to meet the market demands on a daily or weekly basis. Large producers would be at a disadvantage because they have to ship the major- ity of their produce to the supermarkets in order to sell it all. By selling to the farm- ers large producers could cause price wars be- tween large supermarkets and farmers driving the price to producers down for both outlets. Acreage controls would be needed to assure that over- production wouldn't be a fac- tor in price wars. Both farmers market oper- ators in Lethbridge feel the idea of more vegetable out- lets is good in principle. Greg owner-manager of the Lethbridge Farmers Market on 7th Street S. across from Gait says if the interest rate on the gov't money is in the right he would en- large his operation or rebuild at another location. Duaine owner- manager of the New Farmers Market on 3rd Avenue and 15th Street says there is a wild demand for fresh pro- duce. He know they would go if they were run Mr. Kendall gets fresh pro- duce from 18 Japanese vege- table growers in Southern Al- mostly in the Taber area. He feels if more farm- ers markets are to make it in they would have to be located in Calgary or Edmonton. He has had people ask him to establish a market in Cal- gary but the cost factor to date makes it impossible. Mr. Kendall feels that an- other market in Lethbridge would be too much. People are close enough to the grow- ers in the Taber area that a market wouldn't succeed. farmers market would have to be aimed at the larger centres where people have to buy at super- he said. 5 injured Five Coleman residents Were taken to St. Michael's Hospital with minor injuries following a one-car accident on the Oldman River Bridge Monday afternoon.
