NEW HIGHRISE-Plans for a $1.5 million apartment block development immediately east of the College Shopping Mall have been announced by Gordon Schwartz, director of Schwartz Agencies Ltd. The first phase - a 46-suite, eight-storey highrise - will cost $600,000 and should be completed by late spring or early summer. The two four-storey blocks on either side are to be started at that time and finished by the end of 1971. Manhattan Land Securities Ltd., an affiliate of Schwartz Agencies, has let the contract to Smith Bros, and Wilson Ltd. The development is to include putting greens, sauna rooms, swimming pool, fountains and private grounds. Referendum Jan. 27 Publication of Meliorist challenged By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The University of Lethbridge student newspaper, The Meliorist, will face a student referendum Jan. 27 to determine whether or not it may continue publication. The paper will continue to publish until after the referendum, without any special restrictions on it. The move came following a lengthy Students' Society Council meeting which discussed a 177-name petition circulated by SSC third and fourth-year representative Bob Rasmussen, COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 calling for the referendum plus immediate suspension of publication. The council opted to continue the paper, but hold the referendum. About 1,430 students will be eligible to vote on The Meli-orist's .fate. Mr. Rasmussen has been a long-time critic of the paper, particularly since its publication of the FLQ manifesto earlier this fall. Allan Wilson, editor of the paper since former editor Barry Poffenroth resigned over the FLQ controversy, said he dislikes seeing its future open to a student vote because it is not in keeping with a free press. However, given the existing situation The Meliorist finds itself in, he said he is happy the problems will be finally resolved. If the paper wins the refer- endum, which Mr. Wilson said he expects it will, its opponents will have no further call to demand its suspension, be said. Robin Dann, president of the SSC and constitutionally publisher of The Meliorist, said he too will be happy to see the p a p e r's position finally resolved. He said he does not believe in any form of censorship, and to the limits of the law he believes it should be allowed to print everything its staff wants to print, whether or not it is popular material. He refused to speculate on whether or not The Meliorist would win support in the referendum, but promised all sides would be heard before the vote is taken. Mr. Dann, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Rasmussen will meet to formulate the precise wording for the referendum. $25,500 worth of ETV equipment to be bought by school board The Lethbridge public school board will buy $25,500 worth of educational television equipment early in 1971, trustees decided Tuesday evening.

The program is suggested as a one-year project to be continued and altered as seen fit if the initial experiment should prove satisfactory. As the YWCA has minimal facilities, city facilities such as swimming pools, gymnasiums and schools would be used. There would be an estimated 2,100 registrants in the various program classes throughout the year. There is no estimate on how many individuals would actually be served by the proposed program. The $11,000 program requires a city subsidy of $4,300 or $2.05 per registrant. The YWCA would seek the subsidy plus the regular relief of taxes, which last year Ocfry land's holography Jdtd. A. E.

In explaining its proposed program the organization states: "We also believe that an arrangement such as this would preclude the necessity of our requesting assistance from the city in any other way in the future, except for the normal and regular relief of taxes which has been granted us in the past." The eight - point project includes: ladies swim, involving 420 registrants at a total cost of $2,454; ladies keep fit, involving 735 registrants costing $1,782; girls junior gym (ages 8-16) involving 135 registrants costing $681; girls teen clubs (ages 12-15) involving 72 registrants costing $737; girls Blue Triangles (ages 8-12) involving 315 registrants costing $2,496; ladies Yoga involving 240 registrants costing $1,444; ladies volleyball involving 64 registrants costing $597; and creative dance for 90 preschoolers and girls 6-8 years old costing $691. School out December 23 Public and separate school students in Lethbridge will attend their final fall semester classes Dec. 23 at noon, and will not have to return until Jan. 7. Teachers in all schools will also finish Dec. 23, but will return Jan. 5 to spend two days of preparation work for the spring semester. The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute students will follow a slightly different schedule, ending their classes Dec. 23 with the other students, but returning two days earlier, Jan. 5, due to their kite start in the fall when the school's addition was not completed according to plan. The LCI semester break will start Jan. 15, with students returning Jan. 20. In all other schools Christmas examinations - marking the completion of fall semester courses - will be written before Christmas. dent. A sample of blood was taken from Nihill just after the accident and it was found to contain 297 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. Intoxication is declared at 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood. The prosecution read to the court the evidence of one witness to the accident which stated the Wyman car came over a hill and was met by the Nihill vehicle which was on the wrong side of the highway. Both vehicles tried to avoid the accident but met- head-on in the middle of the road. Nihill's driver's licence was suspended for two years. Holiday party The Exhibition Pavilion will be the scene of this year's Pemmican Club annual ball. The ball, the oldest continually-held holiday party in Western Canada, is expected to draw more than 800 people. Some 1,500 invitations have been sent out for the Dec. 30 event. Booh use may have new record The Lethbridge public library is on its way to a record annual circulation of books, reports George Dew, librarian. To the end of November this year cumulative circulation was 357,310 compared with 341,811 for the comparable period last year. The increase this year was attributed to adult use. Circulation of 31,642 volumes in November, down from last year, was composed of 13,878 adult volumes and 5,616 juvenile at the main branch, 5,776 adult and juvenile at the north branch and 6,372 at the south branch. The 10,080 books added this year are about 1,200 greater than for the comparable period last year. including the Dorothy Gooder School for Retarded Children. Tenders will be called for the equipment, and reputation, service centre availability and other matters will be of major concern in the granting of a purchase contract. Doug Card, the public school trustee representative on the now - disbanded Southern Alberta Educational Television Association, said following the unanimous vote that SAETVA's five years of work had not gone to waste, since a southern Alberta school district had finally decided to equip its schools in a fairly comprehensive fashion. Trustees noted it is likely that substantially more equipment will be purchased in 1971, as long as the first facilities acquired are put to good use. Some discussion took place concerning the possibility of leasing the equipment, but Dr. Probe observed that over a three-year period the equipment's purchase price and all maintenance costs amount to significantly less than the lease cost. Based on three years of operation, purchase was estimated at $25,500 for equipment plus less than $10,000 for maintenance - a total of about $35,-000. Leasing the same equipment would cost $39,000 and at the end of the contract the school district would own no equin-ment, whereas in purchase the equipment's five to eight year life can be fully - utilized. AGT had originally suggested to other school districts it might be willing to sell the leased equipment at $1 per unit after the contract expired, but Bill Davidge, AGT's ETV coordinator in Edmonton, told The Herald last week there was no possible way this could be done, since the equipment could be leased for up to eight years with the company continuing to receive income on it. Some concern was expressed over the problems of the equipment becoming obsolete due to the exceedingly rapid technological advances now underway in television. Dr. Probe observed that the equipment would still work, whether or not it wasn't the most up-to-date on the market, so would still be valuable. He and Dr. O. P. Larson, schools superintendent, also said that when new equipment was purchased year by year, as it almost certainly will be, the equipment will constantly be the latest possible, so good equipment will always be available. The district's administration will watch how the equipment is used by teachers and students, and in any case where it is never being used, it will be transferred to another school. Finances for the purchase will come from several unexpected surpluses the board has found itself with, including $45,000 more investment interest than anticipated and the extra funds it gained due to a heavier enrolment than projected in the initial budget. Dr. Larson said there is some possibility the district will need a media coordinator in the near future, although the district's co-ordinator of library services, Gladys Hill, now is actually in charge of a "media centre" in the school district offices, looking after all audio - visual equipment as well as traditional books. There is also a likelihood that teachers who will be using the equipment most will be sent to a special university or college course under the dis-t r i c t' s professional development program. The course has yet to be set up. ftCLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
