Ed. Fox, Blood Band man- ager, said the tribe applied to CMHC for the loan in an at- tempt to accelerate the housing program on the reserve. "It is a new concept to help close the increasing gap caused by an inadequate method of procuring homes for the people on the lie said. The homes will be construct- ed by Kainai Industries Ltd. at Standoff and will be situated in a new subdivision in Standoff. Essential services for lira homes are being completed, with most of the main lines fin- ished. Mr. Fox said the old program stipulated the individual who wanted an average home had to procure much of the money himself from CMHC but many delays were evident in several stages of getting the needed money. The band had to get some of the money also and the federal government had to pay the rest. Mr. Fox said the administra- tion has plans in the making to borrow more money from CMHC next year which would provide about ICO additional homes for the Standoff area. They would also be bought from Kainai Industries.

Chuck Stevenson, one of a tO lUCCt Iteam of 10 Indianapolis 500 race I drivers who spend their off season promoting safe driving, spoke to about 150 students at Winston High School Monday, drawing from his experience to compare driving habits on the speedway versus the high- Wednesday Another large apartment block application comes up be- fore Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Com- mission. N. H. K. Holdings Ltd. is re- questing permission for a 51- suite block at 2223 8th Ave. S. Still tabled from previous meetings are applications from G. R. McLean for a 30-suite apartment at 1607 Scenic Heights and from Smith Broth- ers and Wilson for 46-suite block at 2201 32 St. S. way for utmost safety. Mr. Stevenson also spoke to Lethbridge Collegiate Institute students Monday and to Cath- olic Central High School stu- dents today, using a film of the 1969 Indianapolis 500 race to show the preparation neces- sary for professional racing, pointing out to the students it is not all glory for the driver.

He said the risk the drivers take on the speedway is a carefully calculated one and the measures we take to mini- mize the risk are the most im- portant part of our message. He told the students that the c o m m o n-sense practices of racing can and should also be applied to highway driving. "The only difference between racing and highway driving is speed." Mr. Stevenson, who has been working for the last eight of the 17 years the program has been in existence, said all drivers, whether young or old, should try to stay out of situations that could cause an accident. He said many accidents are caused by drivers relying on their own ability, especially the young drivers who have the fast reflexes. He said every car has its own limitations and they all can be over driven. Ability, reflexes and the car, if handled within tlieir limita- tions, are enough to stop many accidents. "Without these lim- itations, a car can't be control- led for long and that is what causes many accidents." As pointed out in the film and stressed by Mr. Stevenson, seat belts and shoulder harnesses are the first line of defense for the professional driver and tlu's thinking should be applied to highway and city driving. "There are times when a seat belt hinders a person but the percentages show ail driv- ers are better off if they use the safety he said.

Comprising 16 units, the dwellings will be built in three sections six units in each of two row house buildings and four in the third. Being built by developer Hol- ger Frandsen, the project at Forestry Ave. and Lakemount Blvd. marks the start on the last of three such developments this year under the federal gov- ernment program to supply low- cost ownership housing. Cam Bracken, regional di- rector for the department, said the department is continuing its search for a home after its application to uas a residence on Scenic Drive was turned down by the Municipal Plan- ning Commission because of objections of a majority of the neighbors. Mr. Bracken said the time had passed when society could take youngsters who needed help and guidance and put them in an institution removed from the rest of society. It was bstt he said, to keep them as close as possible to the mainstream of the com- munity life and this was the reason for wanting to find a home in an ordinary residen- tial area. Plans call for the home, if it is found, to house seven young people between 12 and 18 who do not need to be detained in an institution, but who cannot function in regular foster homes. "Many people have an ex- cuse built up in theii' rnind and the main reason cited for not using seat belts is people want to get out of the car if it catch- es on fire. "Fire is involved in less than one-half of one per cent of all accidents. "If people could be taught to use seat belts all the time many more lives would be saved." During the question period, Mr. Stevenson told the group if they wanted to get the accident rate down for their ago group they must do it themselves. Ivlr. Stevenson aiso answered several questions regarding racing and his personal racing career. Mi'. Stevenson, who has spo- ken to students in Windsor, Thunder Bay, Bryden, Kenora, and Winnipeg and who! be speaking in Victoria to wind-up his Canadian tour, said the most rewarding part of the program is when students ask about problems they when they become talk and learn.

"This really makes it worth- while." Mr. Stevenson, commenting on the school safety patrols, said the program, under the supervision of the police forces in the individual centres, has greatly increased the safety factor.

The meeting will start at p.m. in the board's office at 433 15 St. and are open to the public. The board will consider recommendation from Dr. Gerry Probe, director of per- sonnel and material resources, that the district purchase 500 worth of television ca- meras, videotape recorders and television sets, at least one complete set for each school. The alternative, to rent the equipment from AGT, is not recommended by Dr. Probe, since it would cost at least more. The board will also consider previewing two films on drug education commissioned by the department of education, a stu- dent suspension policy, a new staff room at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and co- operation in a community sum- mer program.

The bylaw, written in the best legal language, was "to provide for the disposal of cer- tain city managers." Among other things, it prolubits Mr. Feiguson from playing poker more than once a week and permits him to enter city hall "as long as he behaves himself well." Mayor Anderson, having read the bylaw, said that despite the facetious remarks, he was sorry to see the city losing "a tremendously valu- able employee. "Nobody knew the ins and outs of the city like Tom Fer- guson. I always felt we had the best city clerk of any city in Canada. He also served with distinction as city manager." Mr. Ferguson was presented with a silver tray in recogni- tion of his 25 years of service with the city. He also received a poker table and color televi- sion set. In reply to questions from many friends as to his future. he said he had "no plans" and was simply "playing it from day-to-day."
