The question of the relative cost of servicing land in Section nine, north of the city, as op- josed to West Lethbridge was referred by city council Mon- day to the finance committee for discussion. If council decides that the estimated cost of servicing Sec- lion nine is low enough to make it desirable to annex the land ror use as an industrial park, i proposed golf course for young people planned for a part of the area would probably have to be relocated. Informa t i o n submitted to council by Tom Nutting, city manager, showed that the esti- mated cost of servicing Section nine so that it could accom- modate light industry would be about For about 000 it could be serviced for heavy industry the type with fairly large amounts of sewage. By contrast, servicing of land in West Lethbridge would come to approximately Alderman C. W.

The meeting is co sponsored by the Lethbridge Chamber of; Commerce and the provincial j department of a g r i culture. I developing the golf course, out- lined the decisions made to date by council regarding the proposed facility. He noted that council had ap- proved the project in principle when it was first proposed in May. If council were to renege on that decision would the city then be responsible for any costs incurred so far by the as- sociation and for the relocation of the golf course, he asked. He said he didn't think any industrial land would be sold in that area for 20 years, whereas if the golf course went ahead it would attract residential devel- opment to the surrounding area.

Beef, pork, honey, frozen vegetables, and alfalfa pellets were some of the products he said Japan might import in large quantity. Korea wanted barley and dairy cattle. Mr. Hargrave, formerly with the Canada Research Station at Lethbridge, resigned as sec- ond-top man in the PFRA last summer to lake his present post in Edmonton. Japan is just getting an ap- petite for beef, he said. Con- sumption is five pounds per capita per year, compared with 86 in Canada.

Japanese domestic honey production has been cut in half in 10 years, due to industriali- zation and pollution, and Can- ada has a potentially large market there. A 300-ton bulk order (in 650-pound drums) has recently been placed at Coal- dale. Japan has shown consider- able interest in frozen peas, beans and potato chips from southern Alberta. Mr. Hargrave, who visisted the Orient a few weeks ago, said Korea is also interested in Canadian goods. It is not as prosperous as Japan.

The public school board re- cently decided to purchase ETV equipment for its 15 schools, in- cluding Dorothy G-ooder School for Retarded Children, at an estimated cost of about Both boards have purchased instead of renting because over a three or five year period purchase is substantially less than is rental cost. The equipment will be used both to produce local and in- ternal school and classroom videotapes, and to play back tapes acquired from the de- partment of education. The de- partment now has 592 tapes catalogued, moat of them 20 to 30 minutes long. Two companies are seeking ETV contracts: Shibaden and Sony. Both are Japan based firms with excellent reputa- tions. Shibaden has been dem- onstrating its equipment in Lethbridge for some time, and is in the process of establishing a maintenance centre in the city. The popularity of genuine Christmas trees is dwindling, as synthetic trees find their place in more homes every year. Retail sales personnel and seasonal tree salesmen verify the statement, saying although many people still prefer a real tree at Christmas, the conven- ience and safety factors offered by artificial trees -ire becom- ing deciding factors. Artificial trees are, however, considerably more expensive, ranging from about S6 for a small type to around for a lush seven footer. Add a stand, lights, tinsel, icicles, a star, glass decorations, and ths homemaker could be looking at a total cash outlay in the neigh- borhood of to The price of real trees runs from for a fir or spruce, to about for Scotch pines. The decorating of Christmas trees, whether genuine or arti- ficial, remains one of the most widely practised customs in the world. It is estimated there will be Christmas trees decorat- ed in Lethbridge over the fes- tive season. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BIDS.
