Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tutsday, 3, 1974 City Scene Building repairs create city council dilemma Council to begin at p.m. An early start to regular Monday meetings was ordered up by city council Monday. Aldermen voted unanimously for a p.m. start and to hear public delegations at 7 p.m. But it will likely take another couple of meetings before council can start sitting earlier, since aldermen will have to amend their procedures bylaw before it's official. The move to an afternoon start to council sessions was precipitated by several recent meetings that began at the usual time of 8 p.m. and lasted as late as 1 a.m. Concert is by pianists, singer The University of Lethbridge noon hour concert series Thursday will feature a recital by singing and piano students. Performers will include Marcia Swanston, contralto; Navee Blair, Linda Eklund, Kathryn Nelson, Marilyn Sinclair and Cheryl Wentz, pianists. The recital will be held in room E-690 of the academic residence building, at p.m. Lethbridge theft costs A fishing rod and screwdrivers, valued at were reported stolen from a Lethbridge residence on the weekend. Ronald Zasadny, 238 14th St. N., reported the break-in to Lethbridge city police Sunday. Police say wire cutters were used to cut a padlock on a back shed at the Zasadny house where the items were taken from. Notley to speak here Thursday Alberta NDP Leader Grant Notley will deal with oil sands development in a speech Thursday to the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. "Oil Sands Development Panacea for Progress of Prospect for Disaster" is the title of his address. Mr. Notley was appointed provincial party leader in 1968 and was first elected to the legislature in 1971. The luncheon meeting opens at noon Thursday in Ericksen's Restaurant. About four months ago Calgary Concrete Ltd., under contract to the city, ripped up many old sidewalks downtown and poured new ones. One of the sidewalks the firm replac- ed was in front of Richardson Securities of Canada Building at 709 4th Ave. S. But in the process the front of the building was damaged and all the marble tile had to be removed: That was in August. Since then, it appears, all that has happened has been talk among insurance adjusters. Monday, Jim Dunstan, local manager of the security firm asked city council to do something about it. "I'm simply asking to have the front of our office put back he said. "That seems like a rather simple re- quest." But as it turned out, it wasn't. Council argued about it for some time before finally deciding all the city can do is nudge the insurance adjusters some more to expedite a settlement. The problem, said Aid. Vaughan Hembroff, is that if the city were to fix the building, it might not be able to recover the costs from the contractor. From a strictly legal point of view, he said, the city is not responsible and could prejudice its position by doing the repairs. Aid. Bill Kergan and Aid. Don Le Baron said the city has a moral if not legal responsibility to make the repairs, but Aid. Hembroff was adamant. He said that while he sympathized with Mr. Dunstan's position, the firm should perhaps have fixed the building itself first, then sought to recover the damages. Alternatively, he said, James Richardson could sue the city so the city could go after those that are responsible. "Those are the rules of the ball he said. Aid. Kergan didn't think much of that. "They're bloody awful rules when an innocent party has to go through all that rigmarole to get something he said. Council finally voted 6-2 with Aid. Hembroff and Aid. Bob Tarleck op- posed, to refer the matter to city solicitor John Hammond for "immediate action" and a report back to council next Monday. Council decides against rezoning City council threw out a rezoning bylaw Monday that would have down-zoned a one- block section of 13th Avenue N from commercial to residential after learning a "mini-mall" shopping centre is proposed for the area. Council was told Alfred Sunbeam MIXMASTERS MODEL MM100 In White, Avocado or Harvest Gold 12 speed motor Mix finder dial in- dicates proper speed settings, ensures per- fect results Convenient beater and ejector One year warranty Reg.76 95 Special 62 99 Call Hoyuwins 327-5767 DOWNTOWN Woessner of Calgary bought 1.96 acres along 13th Avenue N. at 19th Street for last May with the intention of developing a small shopping centre. City planners meanwhile had suggested changing the zoning to residential because they felt a location at 23rd Street and 15th Avenue N. was more central for a neighborhood shopping centre. But they recommended against adopting the bylaw Monday because the Calgary developer had purchased the 13th Avenue property under a commercial zoning. Lawyers for Mr. Woessner, said in a letter to council, the rezoning could lower the value of the land by 50 to 75 per cent. It is still the intention of Mr. Wessner to proceed with his commercial development as soon as weather permits and financing has been finalized, they said. A review Symphony orchestra coming of age By PAT ORCHARD The Lethbridge, Symphony Orchestra, con- ducted by Lucien Needham, performed to an audience of about 200 at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday evening. The performance began with Cluck's Alceste Over- ture. This was the most pleasant surprise I have had for quite some time The orchestra was spon- taneous, and it was evident that much preparation had gone into both study and rehearsal. Their ex- pressive spectrum was duly flexible. Apart from the orchestra's occasional inability to convey the span of a long line, the perfor- mance was indeed a triumph for Mr. Needham. The next number was Haydn's somewhat neglected Oxford Symphony. The slow in- troduction was carefully shaped, but unfortunately the orchestra displayed a tendency to get ahead of the tempo set by the con- ductor in the adagio. The allegro was spirited, but I did feel that everything was driven along a shade too hard, contributing to a somewhat unrelaxed feeling. However, the minuet had plenty of bounce, and the woodwind ensemble, while generally brilliant, appeared to be slightly naked in the trio. The finale, with its many variations of the main theme, was little short of brilliant. The second half of the program began with Strauss's Radetzky March. While containing plenty of body and impact, the tempo was a little slow for the martial enthusiast. The next number was Tchaikowsky's Andante Cantabile for Strings. The opening movement was a trifle portentuous, but the lyrical passages were well blended and one marvelled at the improvement in the tone of the strings. The plaintive melody of the an- dante was excellently conveyed, and it was in- dicative of the improve- ment that has taken place in the string section that Mr. Needham even ven- tured to perform such work. I hope the symphony will branch out into the field of popular classics more often. The symphony went on to play Strauss's Pizzicato Polka. While the orchestra did not exactly identify with the high jinks of Strauss's polkas, it manag- ed to penetrate the mood and atmosphere of the ballroom in telling fashion. The evening concluded with Bizet's Carmen Suite No. 1. Excessive familiari- ty with this piece can sometimes dull our reac- tion to it. However, the woodwind detail was ex- cellent, not to mention the fine tone of the strings in Frederi's theme and their duologue with the winds in the minuet. There must be a special word of praise to Sandra Weaver for her plaintive flute melody, Walter Faulk for his delec- table performance on the oboe, the excellence of the bassoon obligate and to the percussionists Bill Latta and Susanne Romanchuk for adding such a distinc- tive flavor to the perfor- mance. There was a tendency for the orchestra, which had hitherto held together excellently, to fall apart in some places. However, the overall effect was not lacking. Mr. Needham is to be congratulated for his ef- forts, which now seem to be coming to fruition. The symphony still has its un- desirable limitations, but last night's performance was the first for many years in which the orchestra delighted us with a consistently enjoyable and well balanced programme. I only wish that those to whom the Lethbridge Symphony has been a painful experience in the past could have been there to hear it. RICHARDSON SECURITIES BUILDING Trailer park folks can't get phones LCC student's expulsion 4not for Indian activism' An Indian student expelled Monday from Lethbridge Community College was not dismissed because of pressure from Indian affairs, college and Indian affairs spokesmen said Monday. They denied charges made earlier the same day by Nelson Small Legs Jr., 21, that dissatisfaction with his political activities led local Indian affairs officials to press the college for his dis- missal. The suspended student was one of 25 Alberta Indians who staged a 54-hour sit-in demonstration last week in the Calgary office of Indian affairs.

"They told the college to stick to their attendance policy." A resident of the Peigan reserve, Mr. Small Legs said Indian affairs has also cut off his monthly payment of for tuition, books and living expenses while he attends school. He has appealed his plight to the college, Indian affairs, the Indian Association of Alberta, the Indian Educa- tion Centre of Alberta and the Peigan band council. Chuck Andrews of Indian af- fairs said the dismissal "has nothing to do with anything outside Nelson's academic performance." While his department is reviewing the expulsion, "it was initiated without any reference to any of Nelson's other Mr. Andrews said. Dean Stetson, LCC acting student services director, said a school counsellor decided to bar Nelson "totally because of his absences." He said LCC has "bent over backwards" to keep the student in the college's upgrading, or grade 12, program. NELSON SMALL LEGS Family payments Some residents of the Parkview Trailer Court on 43rd Street S. have been without telephones for as long as eight to 10 months, Aid. Bill Kergan told city council Mon- day. They can't get phones because Alberta Government Telephones has refused to provide new services to the Import quota supported By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Montana livestock officials support the United States im- position of import quotas for cattle and hogs but only as a stop gap measure to limit economic problems which have continued to build for 18 months, says a government official. Elson Fastrup, deputy director of the Montana department of agriculture, told The Herald in a telephone interview from Helena he feels the support is general because of the wide-ranging petitions sent to Washington from farm and ranch organizations from Montana. Mr. Fastrup said the Mon- tana farm and ranch organizations "hold no animosity toward Canada" but feel import quotas are needed to strengthen markets in the U.S. to relieve financial burdens for Montana cattlemen. "They feel it is time the U.S. stopped being the dump- ing ground for an inter- national cattle said Mr Fastrup. "When prices were good 12 to 18 months ago, the concern wasn't there. But low prices and heavy imports to the U.S. have brought the problem to a head." court because the court owner, H. E. Wintemute, will not comply with ACT regulations, Aid. Kergan said. Speaking in the inquiries part of the council meeting, Aid. Kergan asked if the city's 1968 agreement with Mr. Wintemute couldn't be broken, in view of many violations of city bylaws. But John Hammond, city solicitor said the agreement was a normal one for sale of land and since Mr. Wintemute is making his payments and paying his taxes, the city can do nothing about it. "There have been 11 violations of city bylaws as I recall, yet we can't touch Mr. Hammond said. "You can fine him all you want, but that won't get the work he explained. "The only option is to I provide an alternative place for people to go Until there is an alternative site I don't think the situation will be resolved.
