The 1971 schedule will start Carol festival Monday The Mth annual Rotary Carol Festival in Lethbridge, an event which has become some- thing of a tradition, will be held Monday at 8 p.m., in the No pageant by LD.S group this year For the first time in five years, Lethbridge members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have decided not to hold an outdoor nativity pageant. The church has previously held the pageant in the College Mall, and outdoors in Gait Gar- dens and beside the former Stake Centre, Norman Fooks, who was in charge of the event last year. said the scene requires a lot of money, time and people, about 40-50, and "there aren't any people interested in doing it." He said the church had gone to a "great deal of effort as a public service. "We've done our bit. Perhaps some other church would like to take it up."

This year the festival will feature choirs from 10 city churches, including Southmin- ster Church, St. Augustine's Anglican Church, Church of the Nazarene, Hope Reformed Church, McKillop United Church, St. B a s i 1's Church, Lakeview Mennonite Church, St. Andre w's Presbyterian Church, First United Church and the Christian Reformed Church. Jim Moran, chairman of the Downtown Rotary club's publi- city committee, said the festi- val is one of the few non-profit community affairs held during the highly commercialized Christmas season. A silver col- lection will be taken, with all proceeds going to the partici- pating choirs. "We hope the festival helps to promote the proper meaning of Christmas." Arthur Putland, organist emeritus of Southminster Church, will again lead congre- gational singing of carols. Water storage The city's engineering de- partment advises that if the household water supply is cut off, the hot water tank can be used as a temporary source. The tank should be drained slowly to avoid getting rust that may have accumulated in the tank into the water. If the tank is completely drained the water heater should be turned off. Water main leaks not easily fixed An elusive water main leak in the vicinity of Henderson Lake Blvd. and 31st A St. may not be found until nest spring. City crews have been trying to locate the break since Tues- day, with only limited success, while residents of the area have been without water ex- cept for short periods during which they can replenish their supply.. The leak having been nar- rowed down to one particular intersection, it was decided to install an additional gate valve With the three gate valves al- ready tliere, it would make it possible to cut off the water supply at the intersection with out interfering rounding area. City crews, with the sur- faced with a three-foot frost layer, can now take their time in tracing the leak. Another break, this one in the 900 block of 12th St. A S., has also presented unusual prob- lems. A break in a sagging joint Cold affects water lines What causes water mains to jreak or spring leaks in the winter? Irv Fraser, city waterworks engineer, says the cold may have several effects on the wa- ter mains. As the water table recedes in the winter, the soil may tend to "shrink" somewhat, causing stress in the pipes. Pipe shrinkage can also be caused by the cold water car- ried in the mains in cold weath- er. Another theory is that frost penetration may exert some downward pressure on the mains, although they are below the frost level. was repaired Wednesday bill the next joint in the line sprang a leak while the hole was being filled. The crews went back to their digging through the fros' Thursday. Ski resorts ready for the weekend The outlook for ski conditions at the West Castle and Snow Valley ski resorts is reported to be good, with the weather re- ported to be almost ideal for the weekend. There are 19 inches of old set- tled snow at West Castle with the top one third of the hill covered with powdered snow and some snow crust. The bot- tom two thirds of the hill is icy except for the edges of the runs. Diane Green, secretary of the West Castle operation said all lifts will be operating 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the grand opening this weekend and there is a good opportunity all the runs will be in operation. She said rooms are available at the lodge and the cafeteria and restaurant facilities are in operation. The pro shop is ready for business and instruc- tors "have started lessons. At Snow Valley in Femie, there are 1% feet of hard pack snow at the bottom of the hill and more than seven feet at the top.

By comparison, servicing to Section nine would require 000 to upgrade existing facili- ties. Only light industry could be accommodated with the ser- vices provided with this expen- diture of funds. Mr. Nutting says the concern for additional land and the availability of funds for expan- sion of services for heavy in- dustry "seems to.lead us to re- consideration of this entire sec- tion for annexation and utiliza- tion as a light industrial park." The information is submitted to aldermen, he said, "prior to further consideration of that land for recreational pur- poses." A lease between the city and the recreation association has been drawn up, with the ex- ception of one clause relating to the provision of services to the land. Reg Turner, a director of the recreation association, said he considers the group has a lease from the city for the land now. He added that if it were in the best interests of the city to I move the course to new loca- tion it could be done, but it would be a complicated pro- cess. The project has been in the banning stages for some time and was presented to city coun- cil last spring. Excavation of wo lakes needed for the golf course is expected to start loon.
