Itr Batty is also scheduled to present the new project plan to a special meeting of city council tonight. The new plans were drawn up when the MFC turned down the proposed million hotel largely on the grounds tl.cie was not sufficient parking pro- vided. Mr. Batty has said the revisions will include increased parking area. The commission agenda also Includes an application from Smith Brothers and Wilson for a 46-suito apartment at 2201 32 St. S. Christinas seals drive half over The Lethbridge tuberculosis Christmas seal fund has reach- ed 53 per cent of its objective, officials reported this morning. The funds are used for re- search and prevention of tuber- culosis, lung cancer, emphy- sema and other respiratory dis- eases as well as for an exten- sive study into air pollution and its health hazards. The Lethbridge Kinsmen Club is sponsoring the seal campaign locally, and more than 27.000 envelopes ivere dis- tributed. To date has been do- nated by Lethbridge residents. The 1969 total collection was in 1968 the donation was and in 1967 it was Ths most recent provincial figures from the Alberta Tu- berculosis and Respiratory Dis- ease Association show Leth- bridge at 40.1 per cent of its objective; Medicine Hat at 40.5 per cent of its objective; Edmonton at 43.3 per cent of its objec- tive; Calgary at 50 per cent of Its objective; Brooks at 42.7 per cent of its ob- jective; and Cardston at 16.6 per cent of its objective. It is interesting to note that while Lethbridge has' only one- tenth the population of Cal- gary, it has one-third of Cal- gary's objective. At the time the report was made 42.3 per cent of the prov- ince's objective had been reached. A park by any other City manager Tom Nutting Monday asked city council for advice on what to do regarding suggestions that a name be given the city's industrial park. Alderman C. W. Chichester suggested the public might be asked to submit names. Aid. Rex Little replied that BO matter what name is assign- ed to the area, it's "always going to be called the industrial park." Mr. Nutting's request for ad- vice was simply filed. One cent per bushel boost 'si Southern Alberta seed .clean- ing plants may up their rates. At a meeting lield recently in Tabor, 10 of southern Alberta's 11 seed cleaning plants voted in avor of a resolution calling for i one cent per bushel increase n cleaning charges. A study performed by the AI- >erta department of agricul- urc showed each of the four plants investigated had operating ieficits at the end of the year. The deficits were chalked up o general increases in salaries and operating expenses. There were about jushels of grain cleaned in southern Alberta during 1969- ro. Thfe final decision to boost rates will rest with each in- dividual cleaning plant. Also passed at the meeting, was a resolution calling for the icence extension on mercurial seed treatments. The present icence on the mercurial seed chemicals expires today. The resolution states that Former V of L professor noiv at African university s Margaret Spisak samples tasty holiday fruit Japanese oranges popular in Canadian holiday fare Canadians consume more fresh Japanese oranges than people of any other country in the world outside of Japan. Record shipments of the small sweet fruit are expected to arrive in Canada between now and Christmas totaling 3.8 million boxes. Imports this year will be five per cent above 1969, when Canada received 3.6 million boxes of Mandarins valued at million. As a Christmas fare, the oranges are becoming in- creasingly popular. Japan's mandarin orange crop this year is predicted to total 2.8 million tons, 31 per cent above 1969. Acreage has grown from acres in 1967 to this year. Oddly enough, the name Mandarin is not Japanese. It comes from a Chinese word denoting public officials in imperialist China. The root of the word has its origin through Portuguese mer- chants trading with the islands of Malay now Malaysia. It is thought the orange re- ceived its name because of its similarity in color and shape to a large button worn on the hats of the mandarins. The oranges are available In Canada for about a month prior to Christmas, according to a Lethbridge fruit wholesaler Shipments from Japan closely scheduled so that the oranges airive just before the holiday season.

Meeting set on library The Lethbridge Public Li- brary board and city council are to meet in December to dis- cuss provision of improved li- brary facilities in the city.

The extension gives the firm until April, 1972 to complete a busi- ness forms m a n u facturing plant. The project has been given approval in principle by the Municipal Planning Commis sion.

ATK IN KREMLIN' Although termites are more often found in warmer climates i they ate part of the Kremlin floor a few years ago. Seed plants may increase rates since it has been proved fungus treatment of cereal and oil- seeds is necessary, and where- as mercurial treatments have proven effective, they should be retained until a suitable sub- stitute is found.

"We want to make sure the chemical is being banned for facts and not because of public opinion." The department feels that mercurial chemicals pose w hreat if they are handled prop- erly.
