Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI UtHMUOOI HfRALD Monday, hbnwy 1 To call tenders today Tenders are to be called to- day for the installation of ser- vices to ths city's west side and reservoirs on the north and west sides. Because of the uncertainty of the availability of funds for capital works this year, ten- ders will be called for al- ternate projects. One would include both reservoirs, the other would see only the north side reservoir built. Ted Lawrence, engineer- ing director, has told city coun- cil the north side facility must be built this year to service the expanding industrial park. The same approach will he used in providing basic ser- vices (sewer, road, water) to the west side. One project would involve only partial ser- vices; the other would see the city providing all services for Phase One as originally plan- ned. The amount of money avail- able depends largely on how the city finances needed to pay for secondary sewage treat mart f anilities. Help from the provincial gov- ernment has been requested and Premier Strom has indi- cated a reply should be forth coming this week. Tenders will close Feb. 23 and contracts should be award ed in March.

Vext edition Friday Meliorist continues with same staff By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The University of Lethbridge student newspaper, The Meliorist will continue publica- tion with its existing staff, fol- lowing motion of confidence by students' Sunday night. society council The paper will be published this Friday as scheduled, and will continue on a weekly ba- sis. The council was forced to make the decision following an ambiguous stucent vote in a referendum last week. In a 40 per cent turnout, 85 per cent said they wanted a newspaper, but 56 per cent said they dis- approved of the political and social viewpoints of The Meliorist. The council's majority vote to continue the paper came af- ter about half an hour of dis- cussion. Five council members voted in favor of the paper, three against it and two, in- cluding Meliorist editor Allan Wilson, abstained. Mr. Wilson told the council meeting that if only the sto dents who desired a newspaper were counted, 51 per cent ap- proved of the paper as it has in the past. He said it is the paper's pol- icy to print contributions from non-staff members whenever they are submitted, and added that he will "actively seek -ma- terial from my opponents low." How much ine paper might change its point of view and its language, he said, will be de- cided by his staff at a meeting Tuesday. "But a good press shouldn't necessarily be pleasing pso- he said. "It should be agitating without being too alienating." Robin Dann, students soci- ety council president, said ha had mixed feelings about the decision and the controversy which forced his council to call the referendum. "It means that either our newspaper is terrible or els 2 the climate of this university and of southern Alberta is not in any way conducive to free- ccm of expression, which is even Mr. Dann said. He said he thought it was a combination of the two factors vhich had' created the Meliorist battle. He said the council had 'played politics" throughout the entire Meliorist at least four council members are seeking re-election, and our council members are Meliorist staff members.

In a letter to the MFC, T. G. Atkinson, chairman of the rnrks and recreation commis- iion, said nothing should be done with the two proposals that would interfere with city council's freedom to act on a report being prepared by a con- sultant on river valley recrea- tion development. No river valley area within control of the city should be "spot-zoned" prior to council's action on development proposals for the whole area, Mr. Atkin- son said. Council agreed to deferment in March, 1969, when it called for initial river valley develop- ment guideline proposals. Coun- ptrmission' cil has had the home park the past year but decides!

On Jan. 13 the MPC request- ed a site analysis report in re- gard to an application by Toi- lestrup Construction for per- mission to develop a mobile home park in the rivertoottam. The report was to be done by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission in con- junction with the parks and re- creation commission, gineering department city and the MPC.

A CP Rail spokesman said the Lethbridge Calgary day- liner will be operating as usual and local service should be on schedule. Enginemen and firemen em- ployed by CP Rail booked off sick Sunday, bringing most of the city's railway operations to a standstill. The Edmonton-Calgary Day- liner has been cancelled in both directions today because the equipment makes the run both ways, with the train originating in Calgary. No freight trains operated in Calgary Sunday and none were expected to move today. Spokesman would release no details of the dispute. the MPC the Tollestrup propo- sal is contrary to the basic con- cept of both river valley de- velopment reports: that the river valley should be de- veloped as a recreational open area to serve the diverse re- creational requirements of resi- dent and tourist populations. A mobile home park would per- mit semi-permanent, y e a r- round residences in the river valley. The campground proposal is more in keeping with the type of facility that the two reports recognized should be provided in the river valley setting. Mr. Atkinson said. The proposed lo- cation, however, is in an area which both confidential reports identified as the best location for a very site-dependent devel- opment. The consultant's final report on river valley development has not been presented to coun- cil. It is expected soon. meals for. pennies AL GREENWAY FREDA WALTON Greenway win Lemmy award Lethbridge Musical Theatre presented its annual award, the Lemmy, to Freda Walton and Al Greenway, at the group's cast banquet Saturday night.
