Milvain in Calgary, Recreation Glendale continue restoration of a bowling busi- ness at Holiday Village. The injunction, asked for by Holiday Village Ltd., owned by Ail Batty, was issued after the City of Lclhbridge refused a permit for !bo restoration of the bowling camplcx after one- quarter of it collapsed in July. The bowling centre is oper- ated by Glendale Recreation Ltd. of Lethbridge. In a further action. Holiday Village Ltd. has launched a law suit against the City of Leth- bridge, William C. Cameron, Tcshiro Kanashiro, Chalres W. Chiehesler, V e r a Ferguson, E. A. Lawrence and Oliver P. Erdos. The suit claims the cily had neither Ihc power nor authority to refuse a permit for the re- storation of the bowling alley. II says the city and IJis defen- dants are responsible for any loss of revenue incurred by both Holiday Village Ltd. and Glcndale Recreation Ltd. as a result of refusing the permit. The building permit was re- fused by the city because it said Holiday Village Ltd. had not set aside enough parking stalls to sufficiently handle the traffic anticipated. The defendants have 48 hours in which to contest the restora- tion order and have it set aside. The injunction also slates that the city and defendants can in no way interfere with the restoration of the Glendale Recreation Ltd. business unless the order is set aside. Battle of 'unions is shaping A battle is brewing between two Lethbridge area unions and threatens to jeopardize the construction of a 3481.000 sen- ior citizens home project. The United Brotherhood of Carpenters, local MR. supported by the Lethbridge Building and Construction Trades C o u ncil has unanimously agreed to boy- cott the project at 16th Ave. N. and 15th St., to be built by Gel- kate Construction of Lclh- bridge.

Dick Getkate, secrclary- treasurer of Getkate Construc- tion says any boycott by the sub-trades will be dealt with by legal action. The UBC and the Lethbridge Building and Construction Trades Council says it may set up picket lines on the project site if the provincial govern- ment does not turn the con- tract ovnr to another union contractor. A final contract between the construction company involved and the provincial department of public works has not been completed although the prelim- inary action is almost complete, Mr. Getkate said. He also denies the charges laid by the UBC local. There has been a history of conflict between CLAC and in- ternational unions in Canada.

President-elect, Dr. Bill Eeckel, said a candidate has been selected and it is just a matter of confirming it. The position was left vacant when Dr. Beckel took over as acting president following the resignation of Dr. Sam Smith. There had been, consideration given to not appointing a vice- president for the time being because of the tight money sit- uation but Dr. Beckel said the board of governors decided it was necessary to hire someone to provide needed assistance to the president. 44 PKIl CENT Drinking drivers are respon- sible for 44 per cent of the deaths of "not-at-faull" drivers. simply been extended over a longer period. Most stores will remain open until 9 p.m. tonight but close between 5 and 6 p.m. Friday to allow staff to be home with family Christmas Eve. Better sales this year were said to have resulted from a variety of causes: the introo'uc- tion of Chargex cards, better farm sales of grain and a gen- eral upturn in Ihe economy. Tlie longer hours of business this week and last apparently benefited the larger depart- ment stores and malls where shoppers went evenings to browse out of the cold weather. One downtown merchant said that dwindling crowds in inde- pendent stores during the last days before Christmas suggests Snow, cold for holiday Whatever you are giving for Christmas, make sure it is fur- lined. The airport weather office re- ports that an Arctic front which has settled over the area shows no signs of moving out. Temperatures dipped to 10 degrees below zero last night and more of the same can be expected Friday and Saturday. Throw in two to four inches of snow and 15 m.p.h. winds out of the forzen north and you have a pretty good idea of what the weather will be like for the next few days. Clouds will move into the area later today and will be accompanied by intermittent light snow. Two inches of snow are expected in the next 24 to 36 hours. The high today will be zero lo five below. The low tonight will be 15 below. The outlook for Christmas Day is for intermittent light snow and continuing cold. that most people got their shopping dene early this year. Sales of larger items such as furniture and electrical appli- ances have petered out recent- ly since they required major financial decisions that were usually made early. After Christmas, stores will go back to a confusing va- riety of hours. Diaz still at large A warrant for the arrest of Virgil Napolean La Blanche Diaz is still in effect. The warrant was issued Nov. 25 when Diaz, 22, of St. Louis, Missouri, failed to appear in court to answer a charge of criminal negligence which re- sulted from Hie mid-November deefth of his three-month-old daughter. Police Chief Ralph Michelson said Diaz, his wife and remain- ing child have been traced to the Chicago metropolitan area. He also said there is an out- standing warrant from St. Louis involving a fraud charge. No decision has been reached on how to deal with the Diaz program treaty By RON1 Slnff Writer Treaty Indians in Albcrla ap- pear to be in an educational penumbra as far as the pro- vincial government's priority employment program (PEP) is concerned they are not exactly In but they are not ex- actly out. Ths provincial government, winch is financing the program, says Indians are allowed to par- ticipate bul the federal govern- ment is going to have to pay the bill because Indians arc a federal responsibility. A federal government official says funds for Indian education have already been committed for this year and there is no money available to finance In- dian participation in the job- training program. An Indian official says any program designed for Albert- ans should include Indians be- cause they are as much Al- bertans as anyone. Robert Halm, acting co-ordi- nalor of the program for all regions soulh of Calgary, said Indians are not excluded from participating hi the program. "We would be glad to see In- dians participate and we are willing to help them get money from the federal government so they can take part. "But Indian education is a federal responsibility and we don't have the funds available to finance their participation." Peter Swartman, district su- pervisor of the Indian affairs department in Lethbridge, said he is uncertain why Indians are not included directly in the program. "It seems everybody but treaty Indians can take part." he said. "We don't feel it is equitable that they arc excluded simply because they are treaty Indi- ans." Mr. Swartman said funds al- located to his office for Indian education have already been committed for this year and more money would have to Ix; made available in order to fi- nance Indian participation in PEP. He said if the provincial gov- ernment had announced the program sooner, the Indian af- fairs department may have been able to obtain funds for the programs. lEAViTT PHOTOGRAPHY FILM DEVELOPING LOWEST PRICES FAST PICKUP AND DELIVERY SERVICE 122 8th Street South Phone 328-2862 (24 hrs.)
