Thursday 9:00 to 9:00 Closed Saturdays CMHC satisfied with modifications to West Lethbridge plans Central Mortgage and. Housing Corporation is prepared to lift a freeze on residential development in West Lethbridge, the CMHC Lethbridge manager says. Ron Pushkarenko said he met recently with city officials and was satisfied that modifications have been made to plans for tlie subdivision to clear the way for CMHC to approve National Housing Act financing. City Manager Tom Nutting told city council two weeks ago that the sale of lots in West Lethbridge was suspended because the federal finance agency was not satisfied with plans. Mr. Pushkarenko said Tuesday the city has agreed to modifications and if the subdivision plan is submitted for CMHC approval, it will likely be approved. Because West Lethbridge is separated by a seven-mile road from the east side and downtown area, some basic amenities must be available if residential lots are to be sold, he said. There must be: "  some form of minimal fire protection;  schools when the population readies a certain size;  some kind of playground for children;  improved public transportation;  and, a corner-store type of commercial development. Mr. Pushkarenko said he is satisfied that arrangements have been made by the city that all these amenities will be provided when needed. t Value Village fate unsure after blaze By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer As city fire inspectors sift through the rubble, the owner of the Value Village Shopping Centre rem a i ned undecided about its future.

The tape machine starts recording the selling prices for a given lot of hogs above the current market price and shows a decrease of five cents a hundredweight every second until it has dropped $1. To buy any hogs, buyers in locations served by the tape mechanism simply push a button when the price reaches their desire. Under the special export selling arrangement, the price the tape machine starts at will be significantly above the price set for hogs for the domestic market. The machine will show a decrease of five cents a hundredweight ' each second until it reaches a price designated by the seller as the lowest price he will sell his animals for. If it reaches this reserve price before an exporter acts, the hogs will be taken off the market. Any producer will be allowed to offer a minimum of 300 hogs on a three - year basis and for as long as five years. The sale of hogs on the future contract system will not be allowed for hogs entering the United States. Mr. Smith said the future contract will ensure that producers have a guaranteed price for their animals for at least five years (if that is the length of the forward contract).

EXCEPT SUNDAYS AND LEGAL HOLIDAYS A basic part of the inspection involved a meeting with Fire Inspector Kometz and a postal investigator at the fire scene this morning. The investigation centred around the post office section of the Value Village Drug Mart, where it is thought the fire started. Damage bas been loosely estimated at about $75,000 for the building, which was first built in 1949 and recently renovated, plus the stock of the bakery, pharmacy and grocery store. Only one person was injured. Carol Lowery, wife of the pharmacist in the drug store, suffered minor burns on her arms and was treated at St. Michael's General Hospital and released. The fire started shortly after noon Tuesday and was discovered by Mrs. Lowery. Ed Crowe, employed at the food store division, said he was first aware of the fire when Mrs. Lowrey ran into the store with what looked like cuts on her arms yelling there was a fire. Shortly afterwards he said Ms section of the store filled with smoke. He ran to the rear where he heard bottles breaking in Hie fire. He threw a couple of buckets of water on the blaze and left. Margaret Gregory and Marilyn Geklrich said they weren't aware the fire was serious and remained in the building until the smoke got "really bad." Then they went to the back of the store and carried out the business records. Smoke prevented them from returning to the store. While they remained in the store the girls called the fire department. Flora Groenen, had just purchased some groceries in the food market and had left them there while she went to the drug store to shop. She saw the smoke and went across the street from the already blazing building and also made a call to the fire department. The fire department also received calls stating that there had been an explosion, but no evidence of an explosion was found. Mr. Kometz said a loud noise could have been made if superheated air in the buildirg "blew the windows out of It." The blaze was finally extinguished shortly before 3 p.m. leaving the building's three sections gutted and large portions of the roof collapsed. Through - out the entire battle firefighters were hampered by thick smoke which required them to wear special oxygen breathing devices and tanks. Mr. Kometz said the fee continued to sprout up out of control because it was burning in an inaccessible portion of the HOME OWNERS!

"When a fire is in a space like that you can't get at it from below and you can't safely try to fight it from the roof, because you never know where it will sprout up," he said. During the raging blaze a total of ,36 firefighters, four pumper trucks, the hook-and-ladder truck and the emergency equipment vehicle of the city fire department were on the scene. Mop-up crews of the firefighters were deluged with curious school children'as they passed the inferno site on their way home. Traffic in a four block area around the building was rerouted by police until late Tuesday evening.
