The board's decision came following briefs presented by W. E. Huckvale, represeting Glendale Recreation Ltd., W. P. Davidson for Holiday Village and Erwin Adderley for the city. The MPC denied Glendale Recreation's application Nbv. 24 on the basis that insufficient parking had been provided on the Holiday Village property to accommodate patrons of the bowling alley, retail stores and the hotel. Mr. Huckvale told the appeal board his client was concerned with parking for his business from the initial planning stages for the Holiday Village development. He said although his client had 28 years remaining on a lease with Holiday Village Ltd., Art Batty, president of that company,' failed to mention a bowling alley in his original development application.

"I am reasonably happy with 50 per cent local evaluation," said Dr. Larson. LE ROY'S PLUMBING AND GASFITTING LEROY Phone ERLENDSON 328-8403 Pharmacy r Facts from O. C. STUBBS GOOD NEWS TODAY! A new prescription drug has been approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of Meniere's syn-drome - a disease of the inner ear with which more than 750,000 people in this country are suffering. Meniere's disease is thought to be due to poor "microcirculation" (the tiny blood vessels nourishing cells in the inner ear not per-Torming adequately). In the past, attempted treatment of this disease has not been effective, and surgery has often led to loss of hearing. The new drug is thought to be opening minute vesels in the inner ear permitting more normal microcirculation. It has also been found to help drain fluid accumulating in the inner ear which has been causing vertigo. It is also hoped that this new drug will be effective in the treatment of angina pectoris and severe headache. Fre'e parking? Here at Stubbs Pharmacy, the answer is, "Of Course!" And a place for you to sit while we're filling your prescription - of course. All this and our friendly, conscientious serviae is always ready for you here at 1506 9th Ave. S.

Dr. Larson said his ultimate goal is to have complete local evaluation in all Grade 12 subjects. Bob Kimmitt, superintendent of the separate school system, said he didn't expect the announcement to come this soon, "but I am pleased that they have done it." Mr. Kimmitt said for the time being he too is completely satisfied with 50 per cent local evaluation. "It allows us to get an idea of where our students stand in relation to others in the province, but we still have control of half of the mark." He said the ideal is complete local evaluation, but this puts a heavy responsibility on the shoulders of the teachers. Education Minister Lou Hyndman endorsed the expansion of subjects where 50 per cent local evaluation is allowed. Previously it had been allowed only in six subjects. incorporating the latest in scientific technology and techniques. Plant No. 2 incorporates improved facilities for protection of the environment including the world's first four-stage sulphur recovery process. To date, three-stage sulphur recovery has been the maximum used. Other four-stage processes are being built in the province. The four-stage process is designed to recover 97 per cent of the sulphur in the processing of natural gas. The new plant is providing an additional 80 jobs bringing the total number of jobs in the two-plant operation to 230. The two-plant operation will increase production of: sales gas from 170 million cubic feet per day to 311 million; natural gas liquids from 19,100 to 34,600 barrels per day; and sulphur from 1,700 long tons per day to 2,930 long tons. A recently-developed method of producing sulphur in slate form is being used to. reduce sulphur dust in all handling operations. WE HAVE MOVED ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC 222- -5th St. S.

Water used in the plant operations is processed before being disposed and is continuously monitored by passing a slipstream through a tank containing fingerling trout that are kept under regular surveillance. Each plant will operate independently of each other, although both plants will use a newly-installed 500-foot incinerator stack. The new plant was constructed by The Ralph M. Parsons Company Ltd. and at the peak of construction more than 700 persons were employed, adding considerably to the economy of Pincher Creek and to a lesser degree, Lethbridge. Batty "constantly referred to the bowling alley as office space." When the MPC decided in favor of the development, it did so on the basis that the bowling alley would be converted to offices, he said. The difference between a bowling alley and office space in terms of parking requirements is 91 stalls -- the bowling alley requiring that many ir.ore. The question of re-establishing the bowling alley has come up since a wall collapsed on the development site requiring reconstruction of the alley. Mr. Huckvale said that had the wall not collapsed, the howling alley would still be in operation and no development application would have been necessary. H e suggested Mr. Batty, "presumably innocently, has mislead the MPC into a situation it should not have been placed in." He further suggested the appeal be granted and Mr. Batty be required to provide sufficient parking. The architect who calculated the parking requirements testified the number of additional parking stalls was based on exsiting parking plus the number of stalls needed to accommodate hotel patrons. He also said he had a verbal agreement with Erwin Adder-ley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Comimssibn, that parking could be calculated considering the bowling alley as office space. Mr. Adderley denied there was such an agreement. Mr. Davidson, appealing for re-establishment of the bowling alley on behalf of Holiday Village Ltd., said it is not now possible to provide additional parking. He said any previous suggeS' tions that no bowling alley would be included in the complex is absurd. He added if Glendale Recreation is not allowed to continue its business, Holiday Village Ltd. will suffer "a serious loss of revenue." Tosh Kanashiro, chief building inspector, told The Herald the entire development was approved with the condition that 386 parking stalls would be provided, assuming no bowling alley would be on the site. However, only 334 stalls have been provided, he said. Before a bowling alley can be established there, enough parking must be provided to accommodate 425 cars. Glendale Recreation Ltd. cannot reapply to establish the bowling facilities for sis months.
