He was 33. Born and raised in British Columbia's Creston area, he was employed with Canada Packers Ltd. for more than 12 years and during that time, in 1955, he moved to Lethbridge. He returned to tha firm tills summer. In the interim, he worked eight years in the life insur- ance field. He was a member of the Lethbridge Elks' Lodge, Play- goers of Lethbridge and publi- city manager for Lethbridge Musical Theatre. He was extremely active with the boy scouts having served two years as president of the Lethbridge District Council, public relations chairman for the regional council for south- ern Alberta, and chairman of Camp Impeesa for the regional council. He is survived by his wife, Patricia, and three children Valerie, Pamela and Hugh. Rev. Brian Jones of McKillop will officiate at the funeral ser- vice.

The contractors, Smith Bros, and Wilson, have been ready to start work since the project was announced earlier this month and work is expected to gel under way immediately on the eight-storey high- rise just east of the College Shopping Mall. The apartment should he completed by early summer, at which time it is planned to begin a second phase of the development involving two four-storey blocks, one on ci- ther side of the main tower. The commission also ap- proved an application from Art Williams Agencies for a pre- fabricated single family resi- dence at 1315 20 St. N. The unit is similar to a type of modular housing approved this summer by the commis- sion. At that time there was concern that the units he spread through the residential areas of the city, rather than concentrated in one subdivi- sion. This concern was again evi- dent at Wednesday's meeting. The commission made the ap- proval conditional on attention being paid by the developer to variation in size and design in cases where several units were to be put in one area. Other conditions were that the exterior design be com- patible with the neighborhood and that exterior storage space be provided if the house had no basement. The units are brought to the site in sections where they are assembled in a matter of days and may be built with or with- out basements. An application from Erick- son Construction for a truck depot 514 Stafford Drive re- mained on the table, after some discussion on whether the development was suitable for that area. The developer is to be asked to submit revised plans that would include shrubbery and other means of minimizing the disparity between it and adja- cent residences.

He said he doesn't want to imply that a ceiling be set on the number of briefs, but one of the problems of past public meetings has been overly long submissions and too many of them.

Chamber to meet with district MLAs The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce will hold a special breakfast meeting with district MLAs prior to the spring sit- ting of the legislature to look into areas of concern to the whole community. At the chamber execut i v e meeting Wednesday topics for possible discussion were brought up, including the con- troversy over Highway 3. The Medicine Hal chamber has requested the department of highways to spend any money designated for its area on the highway from the U.S. border to Medicine Hat to enhance the tourist trade.

The last day of mail delivery before Christmas will be Dec. M. Delivery will resume Dec. 29 and continue until Dec. 31. The first deliveries of 1971 will start Jan. 4. Little delay has been report- ed, in the Canadian mails, but mail in the United States seems to have been delayed by the recent rail strike, Mr. Lane said. At least one local apartment owner seems to feel there is a surplus of apartments develop- ing in the city. In an unsigned letter to the Municipal Planning Commis- sion the pointed out that between five and 10 per cent of the suites now available were vacant and more apartments were being approved by the commission. The letter being unsigned, it was given no consideration by the commission other than be- ing read at Wednesday's meet- ing. Ski conditions reported good West Castle ski resort reports j ski conditions to be very good, with IVz inches of new snow.

So far, more than million has been raised by 3AU, and dojialions are still being made.

The building will house all physical education and related activities, plus the departments of music, art and possibly drama until the next phase of construction of academic build- ings is completed. cation, regional disparity, civil liberties and the Canadian identity. It is expected the group would look at such an idea as the en- trenchment of the Bill of Rights into a revamped British North America Act to produce an en- tirely new constitution. Parliamentary members are placed on the committee on a temporary basis, dependent on where the committee is sched- uled to meet the public. Mr. Gundlock was appointed last week.
