The article said fares wouli drop as of Dec. 15, due to government regulations calling for application of the curren exchange rate on United State money, instead of the older 92. cents per U.S. dollar rate. Lethbridge travel agents have been receiving calls frorr travellers saying to delay theii tickets billings until after Dec NEW PRESIDENT Stan Tiffin, Lclhbriilge, was elect- ed president of the Leth- bridge anil District Exhibi- tion Board Tuesday night. Tiffin replaces Dick Gray, of Lethbridge, who had been board president for the past three years. Air. Gray will remain on the board as a director. Other executives elected include: Fred Prit- chard, first vice-president, Doug Shacklcford, second vice-president, and Carsten Goa, financial adviser. The first organizational meeting of the new executive will be held shortly after the new year. is, on internal Canadian flights, to give them the oppor- tunity to gain from the "de- which in actual facl would only apply to interim tional flights. Canadian air fares have no been reduced and will not be reduced; indeed there is some possibility of a rate increase next year. Flights originating in Canad; and bound for United States 01 other foreign destinations are based on U.S. dollar values, so that exchange must be paid if Canadian funds are used. Since the Canadian dollar was unpegged several months ago, it has climbed steadily un- til it is almost at parity mill American money. Until Dec. 15, however, air- lines and travel agents may f they wish use the 92.5 cent exchange value if tickets are purchased with Canadian noney. After Dec. 15, interna- tional flights must be charged according to the current 98 cent exchange value of the Ca- nadian dollar. Lethbridge travel agencies say they have been using the new rates for several weeks now, and have otherwise been suggesting that clients get American money from their banks to pay for their tickets.

FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING This six-foot boa consfrictor, currently a resident of a local depart- ment store, might be just the thing for that unusual Christ- mas present, provided the recipient knew how to take care of him. The store says they won't sell him unless they are satisfied the new owner will give him a good home. The proper care and feeding of a boa constrictor includes catching live mice a staple of the snake's diet. About once a week the mice are placed in the cage and the boa, with a lightening-fast movement, squeezes them to death, eats them, then takes the rest of the week to digest them. The snake will not eat pre-killed mice. There are 35 different species of boa snakes in various parts of the world. This one, from South America, is fairly small compared to some of his 30-foot-long cousins. All boas kill their prey birds and smaller mammals through constriction as they do not have poisonous fangs.

The subdivision has been des- gnated as an "exclusive" area and a minimum has been placed oh single family resi- dences. No limits have been put on apartment blocks. Alderman C. W.
