(Lefty) Wilson, manager of the new Inn, said April 1 is Hie target dale for opening. Mr. Havers said April 1 will be the opening barring unforeseen problems with equipment and furnishings deliveries. Mr. Batty said one of those problems has already occurred a shipment of lighting fixtures is tied up somewhere by a B.C. snowslide. Bookings for conventions and banquets in the new facility are coming in steadily, Mr. Wilson said. He will be opening an office In Holiday Village in a few weeks to consider job applications. The holel will employ 100 full-time staff and 25 to 30 part-time staff, he Firrl. Mr. Wilson, a native of Calgary, now is manager of the Holiday Inn in Edmonton. He will be commuting to Leth-bridge on weekends for a couple of weeks before moving here. He is not new to Lethbridge. He worked here with the gas company in and in 195o opened Trans Carda new hotel will have 120 guest rooms, two meeting rocms for 25 persons each, banquet facilities for 400, an elevated swimming pool, coffee shop and dining room, cocktail lounge, a cabaret-type lounge operating six days a week ta-turing entertainment three nights a week, an executive suite on the ninth floor, children's playroom and saunas. There will be 99 guest rooms equipped with two queen-size beds and 43 with one queen-size bed. Mr. Batty, owner of Holiday Village, announced that S.Oirf) square feet of office space is being opened immediately above the Glendale Bowl. The city has given permission to reopen the bowling alley, he said, but a decision on whether lo reopen depends on further negotiations with the insurance company respesenting Smith Bros, and Wilson, the construction firm building the hotel. While Ihe hotel was in its early stages of construction the west wall of the bowling alley colapsed and had to be rebuilt Pinsetfing equipment in half the bowling alley was secrecy became an issue after Edmonton city police seized the personal mod i c files of a medical practioner there for allgcdly defrauding the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission of J13. Dr, David Craig of Edmonton, provincially known for his mefjindone treatment of heroin addicts, has obtained an Al-berla Supreme Court injunction to get the files out of p o 1 i c e tends. According to the AMA in Edmonton, the seizure was within legal bounds although morally questionable. City medical praclioners feel the amount of money is negligible and point out other claim disputes between doctors and the AHCIC have been settled through personal correspondence. Dr. Robert Clark, executive secretary of the AMA says accounts problems occur lo all doctors occasionally and aic usually the result of faulty filing systems. Considerable speculation surrounds the file seizure (particularly since it was not Ihe health care commission which instigated the action) both locally and on a nation-wide level. It M. Anthony, Edmonton chief crown prosecutor said to indicate which individual or group initiated the action. About an injunction to release the doctor's files from the police, the crown prosecutor last week said, it would only lie a "stalling action." The Crown, however, has since consented Uiat the files be returned to Dr. Craig until a hearing on Feb. 21. A previous defence action resulted in the files being stored, under seal, in the Edmonton courthouse. Evidently the medical case history files were seized because they were marked in a fashion to indicate which patient had been charged against the AHCIC. Mr. Anthony said the names of patients would not be used or be held confidential in any ensuing court action resulting from evidence gained in the police seizure of tha doctor's files. William Wacko, executive director of the Alberta Alcoholism, and Drug Abuse Commission, said from Edmonton, the police seizure of the doctor's files "obviously has repercussions for Mr. Wacko said Dr. David Craig, whose files were seized, was treating about 100 Spot Bight Fabric Sale Extended Until Sat.
