Phone 328-4095 By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Stiff Writer The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors was asked Wednesday to sup- port the introduction of ex- tended area telephone calling to the Lethbridge area. Mike Carnell of Alberta Government Telephones told the directors that because of the of the Crown corporation cannot drum up business in the same manner as other companies. So ACT is asking groups in the to support extended flat rate calling. Mr. Carnell said such call- ing would mean that no long distance tolls would be charg- ed on calls between Lethbridge and nine com- munities lying within 30 miles of the city. But basic rentals would rise to cover the lost long distance revenue and the larger number of telephones accessible to sub- he said. Telephone rates are based Chamber endorses continued plans for city growth Birdport runway Who do the footprints in the snow belong Any hunter worth his sail knows they belong to a pheasant. At the top left corner of the pic- ture the pheasant begins his taxi down the runway. In the second last set of prints the bird's feet are still on the ground but its wings have begun to flap leaving their marks in the snow. In the last set of prints the pheasant is airborne and only the bird's wings leave their mark. RICK ERVIN photo Continued planning for growth was endorsed by the Board of directors of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce at a meeting Wednesday. The chamber directors voted to publicly support planning for continued commercial and industrial development in the city. They also voted to write city council outlining their view. Bob delivering the report of the business af- fairs noted that there had been some exposi- tion in the city of the view that less growth would be desirable. He said he did not want completely uncontrolled but thought growth within town planning guidelines should be sup- ported. The directors also voted to continue operating the Business Information which it has operated in the absence of a Better Business Bureau in Lethbridge. Some members had questioned whether the chamber should be involved in the since only five per cent of the complaints it receives are related to chamber members. Chamber manager Mike who runs the ser- vice as part of his was authorized to acquire more of- fice help if the complaint load makes it necessary. A city wide shopping festival in conjunction with Ag- Expo was another business affairs committee recommendation approved by the directors. The matter was turned over to the communications and public relations committee. The committee and the manager will provide co ordination to encourage participation in the festival. Later in the the board gave its support to a civic affairs committee mo- tion that the chamber sponsor an open meeting between the Exhibition Board and any interested persons on the question of whether to cancel the Whoop-Up Days Parade. on the number of telephones immediately accessible to the he so rent currently costs less in outly- ing centres than in the city. The basic charge in Lethbridge is scheduled to rise next year in any said Mr. as the city's natural growth raises the. number of telephones and puts' in a higher rate category Lethbridge telephone sub- scribers will be balloted after Jan. 4 to determine if they want the extended service. Mr. Carnell told the directors it could cause hard feelings if Lethbridge residents voted the plan down and people in outlying areas wanted it. A simple majority of sub- scribers in the communities affected would adopt the he but Lethbridge's size would allow city residents to kill the idea even if the towns voted for it. The nine towns Picture Iron New Raymond and Magrath are being polled said Mr. Carnell. Lethbridge telephone rent will rise to per month from per month for a residential and from per month to per month for a business phone if the system goes into effect. The ACT representative said the telephone company would lose money if EFPC were adopted. The revenue from increased rent would be less than the long distance charges lost. we are a service oriented company and we're not in business to make money. If we we're ex- pected to plow it back into the he said. The request for support was deferred so the directors could consider it carefully. College board briefs Thefts concern LCC governors Crimes on the Lethbridge Community College campus will be dealt with in the same way as if they occurred off the board of gover- nors decided in a closed ses- sion Wednesday. A few thefts of money within a few weeks from of- fices of the student council and administrators was reason enough for the college's associate instructor of law enforcement to investigate the extent of the problem at LCC. R. C. Harrison found that thefts on campus occur daily but are very seldom reported because the items taken can- not be identified. The thefts usually involve clothing or money that was left in clothing in shower rooms. The governors agreed with Mr. Harrison's recommenda- tion that a theft prevention campaign should be operated on campus to warn students of the and the risks in handling their belongings carelessly. The college will press charges in the event a thief is the governors decided. The college will likely have acquired one parcel of for future by January. Following the LCC board of governors meeting chairman Bob Babki told The Herald he is optimistic about finalizing the deal on one parcel of land that sits adjacent to college property bnt wasn't sure about a second parcel of land on which the college has been dealing. The holders of the second parcel have been asking price for he said. don't need land that bad and we're not paying inflated prices for Mr. Babki insisted. The governors discussed the land deals in a closed session and would not indicate after the meeting how many acres they were dealing for. In Mr. Babki told The Herald the college was hoping to purchase about 100 acres of land adjacent to LCC property for future expansion. The disposal of surplus equipment and material at the college will be handled by Crown Assets Disposal Divi- sion of the gover- nors decided Wednesday. Equipment and material deemed surplus in one depart- ment will first be offered to other departments in the college and if still not usable the items will then be assign- ed to the Crown Assets Disposal Division for disposal. CADD will offer the surplus equipment and material to staff and students at the assessed value prior to offer- ing it for sale to the public. All costs of handling and selling the surplus items will be absorbed by the CADD. Ninety per cent of the sale price of the surplus items will be returned to the college. CADD will hold the other 10 per cent for administration costs involved in handling and disposing the surplus items. The college attempted to dispose of surplus equipment and material on its own under the former board policy. The governors Wednesday agreed to give of the tax- payer's money for a Christ- mas party for children of the college staff. The LCC faculty wives association requested the funds because they were concerned that it would create a burden on parents to de- mand gift money from them for the party. When the governors were touched with the Christmas spirit in previous they only donated The party will be held Dec. 8 in the college gym. The board decided in a clos- ed session Wednesday to conclude all their monthly meetings by 11 p.m. They then had to pass a mo- tion at 11 p.m. to continue the meeting past eleven and still did not deal with almost one- half the agenda items. The meeting will reconvene Monday at 8 p.m. The faculty representative of the college presented a revised moonlighting policy to the board of governors for consideration Wednesday. The revised policy was not made but it will again be presented at the January meeting of the board. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Ell. 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P. C.D.M.
