(Lefty) Wilson, manager of the new Inn, said April 1 is the target date 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 slu'pment 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 hotel will employ 100 full-time staff and 25 to 30 part-time statf, he Mr. Wilson, a native of Calgary, now is manager of the Holiday Inn in Edmonton. He will be commuting to Lcth-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 1945-46 and in 1955 opened Trans Canda and Ihe U.K. The new hotel will have 120 ;uest rooms, two meeting ooms for 25 persons each, banquet facilities for 400, an derated swimming pool, coffee ,hop and dining room, cocktail ounge, a cabaret-type lounge operating six days a week fea-.uring entertainment three nights a week, an executive suite en the ninth floor, children's playroom and saunas. There will be 99 guest rooms equipped with two queen-size )eds and 43 with one queen-size bed. Mr. Batty, owner of Holiday Village, announced that 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 to reopen depends on further negotiations with the insurance company respesenting Smith Bros, and Wilson, the construction firm building the hotel. While the hotel was in its early stages of construction the west wall of the bowling alley colapsed and had to be rebuilt. Pinsetting equipment in half the bowling alley was doctors say. Doctor secrecy became an issue after Edmonton city police seized the personal rr.ed i c r. 1 iles of a medical practioner there for allgediy defrauding the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission of Dr. David Craig of Edmonton, provincially known for his melhadone treatment of heroin addicts, has obtained an Alberta Supreme Court injunction to get the files out of p o 1 i c e lends. According to the AMA in Edmonton, the seizure was within legal boaids although morally questionable. City medical practioners feel the amount of money is negligible and point out iiat other da m disputes between doctors and the AHCIC have been settled through personal correspondence. Dr. Robert Clark, executive secretary of the AMA says accounts problems occur to all doctors occasionally and are 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 loc-allv and on a nation-wide to hang up the mt phone, to indicate which indi- or gioup initialed the action. About an injunction to release the doctor's files from the police, the crown prosecutor last week said, it would only be j a "stalling action." The Crown, however, has since consented that the files be returned to Dr. Craig unUl 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 the 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 Spotlight Fabric Sale Extended Until Sat.

The Lethbridge Symphonj Association can be well pleased with Monday night's presentation under conductor Walter Goerzen of Haydn's "Mass in Time of War" and of selected shorter vocal compositions. By and large, the music was performed with enthusiasm and care, and, in spite of the intonation problems which of ten plague amateur group-such as this, UK over-all effcc was quite gratifying. Performing were: The Sym phony Chorus; players from UK Symphony Orchestra soloist Colcen Kaufmann (siprano) Evelyn Mills Marj Thompson Lauern Erickson Walter Goer zen Arthur Hun Michael Kaufmann (to and Dr. Rudy Hegch and pianists Hut Clarke and Irene Goerzcn. Generally speaking the ha auce between chorus and 01 chcstra and that among th four sections of the chorus it self was good. The chorn blended host when singin blocks of sound. Unfortunately individual sections, when posed, were not always as fu sounding and well focused a might be chorus ising' The orchestra accompanied commendably, but intonation, particularly in tire strings, was still a problem. On the other hand, starts and stops were handled well, and the music had the most essential quality of necessarily or, going movement. The voices of the individual soloists vary somewhat in size and brilliance. Consequently balance between the soloist am chorus or among soloists as a group was a problem at times Nevertheless the preparation o each singer was good, each did well in his or her own right and the solo work, on the whole, was more than ade quale.
