Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Lethbi-idge People Sbbuld Be Able to Take Advantage of Housing Scheme *^ i^^'Altliough ive know nothing more ^oiit the national housing scheme than what we have read In tlie press, t�e city council is prepared to do eyerything in its power to make available to the people of the city the amount or money which would fall to us as our. quota of Uits (2o,000.000," skid Mayor Herdie at this morning's iVieetlng of the city council, "We would therefore like to hear Irom those who would consider erect-Jag houses under the riew housing s^oheme in order that we may get come idea of the call there will be for the money. It is very well known that there is a scarcity of houses in I^thbridge right at the present time, and that scarcity will be aggravated when the soldiers return. 1 think probably Lethbridee needs 150  Jl\ore houses In order to properly accommodate its population." j  Tho council has no, idea how the Ulan will be worked out, but if the money can be secured without too great a strain on the city, and If the Ipans to citizens can be properly fie-riured, the members think the plan is feasible. Ou oneptjlnt there,is some Ultlo hesritationrftnd that arises from' thd fact that building costs arc so high tljat a loan now at 60^ per' cant of the cost'of building would probably amouftt to mor6 than the cost of the house when^ normal material prices are again estabitiafaod. But- the mayor's answer Is tliat Lethbrldge must not lag in any building program irbich will help buUd up the. city and pro-vide worlc for returiied soldiers, so he is ready to Vfilve the plan-every conslc\eration. j It is pointed out now that  the money. Is ;.tQ .be divided among cities' having an industrial population to housQ, so that of the |1,600,000' which will be available for Alberta, Lethbrldge would probably be entitled tQ $150,000 or even nwre. The plan is to build houses for workmen, not for those able to build otherwise, and certainly not for any landlord who wishes to build for the purpose of renting.

P. R. to locate some of Uie relatives of Fireman George Hewitt who lost his life in the accident at IClpp on Slonday liiorntng. but without avail. Papers found on the daad man show that he. registered for military service with' "the" American consul at Fernie, and the latter has be(m wired to give particulars, but so far no answer has been received. Coroner Humphries has ordered an infiapfft prer the remstins on Wednesday morning at 10- .o'clock. ,Hewitt, according to The Herald's ; information, was making his third, riin on this division as a student, -and -had made a good impression. The company officials state that the fatality was purely the result of an accident, and that the engineer on the engine | which Hewitt was tiring yelled to  ;^im and made every possible effort' io prevent him stepping in front of the paBsfeger train, but ia vain.

That the Christmas business of this season will b6 fully up to that of other years, is not doubted for^ a moment, and some merchants already express satisfaction that the volume of Christmas busihesa'.Wili be even greater this year, in spite of the handicap of the epidemic. The stores on Saturday evening were well filled, and good business was done, r This week sees the appearance of the first'of the Christmas jvindow dressing; and decorations, "and. the Christmas shoppers_af.e making their first raids upon tlie jgood tilings that have been laid in store for them. Merchants generally report business' quiet until the past-week, when renewal of the country trade was noticeable," and this weeTi will see everything in the line of local commerce back to normal again. ^, The Ipcai r organization of retail clerks is imsisting pn its rights for the Christmas season under the new factories act, and la^t week the factories inspector visited the city and conferred with the merchants and the clerks' organization regarding the matter of hours. It is understood that the merchants have agreed to pay the clerks extra time for all overtime during the Chrl-'tmas season. The act provides that thia must be done, or in the alternative that the stores cannot keep open any extra evenings in the week. , ~~ An enthiiMMtic activity is oibtecMble'u toon m one enten^^,)|Q^r^;:d�mU 10^^ OffAU Ready-to-Wear Dresses FURS Purs make a useful gift at this time of the year and when, you think of furs, remember.-we. have reduced all furs.
