Aldermen Jim Anderson, Vera Ferguson and Steve Kotch opposed the resolution which is aimed primarily at il- legal basement suites. Discussion centred on the heed for the resolution and the effect it night have. Aid. Jim Anderson said he would like to be shown why the present bylaw could not be en- forced. He said he did not see Building quality urged City council Monday gave irst reading to an amendment o the zoning bylaw that tight- ens controls on the quality of building in the city. While the bylaw covers pro- vision of storage space, quality if materials, factory fabri- cated housing and esthetic con- siderations, it was only the last item that came in for any real discussion. The clause in question al- ows the Municipal Planning Commission to refuse any ap- plication if, after considering >ize, design, finish and loca- ion, it is felt the development would detract from the appear- ance or character of the sur- rounding area. Both Alderman C. W. Chi- chester and Deputy Mayor Hex Little were of the opinion the amendment gave the MFC too much discretionary power. Aid. Chichester said there was too much room for an individ- ual to make esthetic value judgements that reflected his own personal taste in architec- ture. City Manager Tom Nutting, who, along with Aid. Chi- chester is a member of the MPC, pointed out that the amendment changed only two words in the. present zoning bylaw. The changes would allow the MPC to consider lo- cation and all aspects of de- sign, rather than just the ex- ternal aspect. Aid. Jim Anderson said there was a need for some type of control and it must have some the MPC based on the amend- jasis in law. He was not con- i ment be very specific regard- voiced, he said, that the pro- j ing the reasons for refusal of josed amendment was the best ,hat could be provided and sug- gested that any decisions by Qiamber leaders concerned with education and industry Officials close cafe in Cardston CARDSTON The Rex Cafe here was closed down by public health officials Friday for vio- lation of a restricted foor per- mit. After public health officials decided the building used by by owner as the Rex Cafe was not in condition to be used as an independent restaurant, the owner was issued a restricted permit. The restricted permit allow- ed the owner to serve packaged food (food on paper plates only) from the kitchen of an adjacent restaurant which he also owns. The actual violation of the restricted permit occured when customers were served meals on tin foil plates which hadj been previously used. Use of this type of plate more than once contravenes provincial statutes. an application. The amendment still needs second and third reading. Thirty one directors of the Alberta Chamber of Commerce met in Lethbridge Sunday and Monday to evaluate steps ne- cessary to solve the problems in the total community of Al- berta. Goerge Ulsley, president of the Alberta chamber, said this meeting, one of four held an- nually, was important in help- ing the chamber to decide what direction it should be taking to determine what is happening to War games producer to lecture Peter Watkins, producer di- rector of the documentary- style, anti-war movie, The War Games, will give a public lec- ture Friday at 8 p.m. at the University of Lethbridge. The lecture, sponsored by the U of L students' society, will take place in the lecture theatre of the Science Building. The War Games, commis- sioned in 1965 by the British Broadcasting Corporation, was rejected by the BBC as be- ing too controversial for TV showing. The movie depicted the reaction of Londoners to a nuclear bomb scare. Mr. Watkins has produced four anti-war and political movies: Culloden, The War Games, Tin Gladiators, and the most recent, Punishment Park.

'The educational committee of the Alberta chamber will delve into the education sys- tem, looking closely at ah1 as- he said. This includes: what is hap- pening in the province curricu- lum, costs value for each dollar spent, submissions to the Worth Commission on Educa- tion, the possibility of a sub- mission to the Moir Committee studying foreign influence on Canadian education. "We hope to come up with a stand on education which will have some bearing on the sys- tem in said Mr. 111- sley. "There will be a meeting with afl the Chambers of com- merce in Alberta in the near future to formulate directions for this committee to take." He said rural-urban question and the migration of people from one setting to the other is posing some problems. "The chamber will follow up the provincial rural-urban com- mittee with a sub-committee to look at the development of op- portunities in Alberta and how to foster it. "The problem of what the chamber should be doing to find the answers resulting from this rural-urban movement and the question of incentives for some areas of the province and not others is also a major con- cern of the committee." any need to reinforce the by- law" by passing a resolution and if it could not be enforced it should be changed. He was also concerned, said, about the possible future cost of hiring more personnel .0 enforce building regulations, a concern shared by Aid. Kotch. City Manager Tom Nutting said it might be necessary to hire someone, but that this would have to be considered during budget discussions. Aid. Joe Balla, who is chairman of Lhe MPC, said one of the prob- .ems of enforcement was lack of personnel. It was also Aid. Balla's opin- ion that unless a tough attitude ivere taken regarding enforce- ment the city was discriminat- ing against those persons who complied with the bylaw.
