Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta . Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS West Lethbridge construction should start by April-Nutting Development and financing arrangements for West Lethbridge and a start on house construction in the new subdivision should be seen by Arjril, City Manager Tom Nutting says. A major obstacle to develop-ment, the reluctance by Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation to finance any house construction until certain conditions were met, has been overcome, Mr. Nutting said Thursday. The plans CMHC has now accepted are the same ones the corporation originally rejected, he said. All it took for the regional CMHC office to change its attitude was an explanation of the development plans to Ron Basford, minister of state for urban affairs and head of CMHC in Ottawa, Mr. Nutting said. What is needed now is a major promotional effort and a job of salesmanship to get local builders to go into West Lethbridge, he said. Next week, the Calgary archi- tect who has developed six house designs for the city and the city's landscape architect will begin a series of meetings, some with local builders, to discuss the plans for the west side. Mr. Nutting emphasized that the six designs, which the city paid $13,000 for, are not the only ones which will be used in the subdivision. Local builders can use their own designs "as long as they suit the concept of the subdivision" and are approved at city hall. One of the initial control factors, that of no fences, has been re-assessed, Mr. Nutting said. Now, fences will be allowed but they must be built at the same time the houses go up and must be of materials and design approved by the city. Another minor alteration is that houses on main arterial streets will face the streets. Houses on interior streets will face green strips. A model of the entire subdi- vision, complete with' locations of trees, green strips the lake and brook and other landscaping is being constructed and will be on display at city hall in the near future. Models of four different lots with different house designs have been completed. New research station lab Research Station photo Industrial sewaqe has city in By JIM MAYBIE Herald jStaff Writer The architectural firm of Russell and Needham of Medicine Hat has prepared this concept of the proposed $10.5 millioni laboratory and administration complex to house the Alberta and Canada departments of agriculture personnel at the Lethbridge Research Station. Just north of the old jail road facing east and west, the Alberta Departure of Agricul- ture extension staff and irrigation, division will be housed in the west portion of the first building. Tenders will be called in August with construction to start in November. The building is scheduled for completion in August, 1975.

Liquor a factor in 58 per cent 49 killed in collisions Liquor was a factor hi 58 per cent of all fatal traffic accidents in Southern Alberta in 1972, accoridng to a fatality ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Blclg. 222 5th St; '$ Phone 328-4095 PHARMACY FACTS FROM O. C. STUBBS Has it ever occurred to you that liquor, in its various forms, is a drug? That, in fact, liquor taken in correct amount is ac-ually a sedative which can bring on relaxation and | sleep? And do fyou know that |drinking liquor Jin combination I'with drugs being llfused can be ac-j tively-dangerous, MHin fact possibly fatal? And do you know that you can be stopped on the road or highway and convicted for drug intoxication just as well as for liquor intoxication. Drug intoxication symptoms, jto the average layman, are quite similar to liquor intoxication symptoms: speech that is often incoherent, double virion, unsteadiness, sleepiness and lack of comprehension, for example. So please don't mix liquor with other drugs - and please don't mix cither liquor or drugs with your driving. When you bring your prescription to us here at 1506 9th Ave. S.

Open daily 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sundays and Holidays 12 noon to 9:00 p.m. survey released Thursday by the RCMP in Lethbridge. The survey shows that 49 people were killed last year in 36 collisions, and that one or both of the drivers involved had measureable blood - alcohol concentrations. Most accidents causing death - 88 per cent - occurred when weather and road conditions were good. Thirty of the accidents happened on dry roads, and three each occurred on icy or wet roads. Accidents on numbered highways accounted for 27 of the total number, and most accidents were the result of a collision with another motor vehicle. Nine fatal accidents occurred without a collision with another object, while there were six pedestrian - car accidents resulting in death.

Over the five-year period, 1968 to 1972, most fatalities were recorded in 1968, when 53 people died in motor vehicle collisions, a 56 per cent increase over the number of fatalities in 1967. There were the same number of deaths - 49 - in both 1971 and 1972, but injuries resulting from traffic accidents dropped last year by 14.2 per cent from 1971. STORES CONSIDER CHANGING HOURS Indications are that more independent merchants, notably in the downtown area, are going to exercise their prerogative to set hours of operation most suitable to themselves. Businessmen have been meeting in small groups to discuss problems associated with present hours. As in the past, there is no concensus. Some merchants, it is reported, are planning on continuing operating six days a week with two nights of late shopping. Others are going to operate six days with one idght, either Thursday or Friday, of late shopping. Some are considering closing Saturday afternoon and re-opening Monday at noon.

Mr. Burgess, who works out of the state secretary's department regional office in Calgary, was in Lethbridge Wednesday and Thursday for interviews with people interested in OFY projects. He said the people he talked to included students of the Lethbridge Community College and the University of Lethbridge and recreation board members from Southern Alberta. Mr. Burgess said he will be in Lethbridge again on Feb. 17 to attend a seminar on employment at the LCC. "I am also available to answer questions regarding OFY at my Calgary office," he said.

Some stores now are closed all day Monday. Several store operators say they are finding it increasingly costly and tiring to maintain the same hours shopping centres do and yet offer the service they want to give their customers. By changing their horn's to suit themselves, they hope to provide better service to their customers without working what they consider excessively long hours. There is a strong move to close Saturdays - or at least Saturday afternoons. Promoters say that other services, such as banks, dentists, doctors, lawyers and government offices are closed Saturdays, so they would not be providing much of a disservice to customers if they also closed Saturdays or Saturday afternoons. Some claim Saturday is their poorest day for sales. The city's sewage treatment plant at times is treating saw-age equal to a city 10 times the population of Lethbridge, The Herald has been told. In one period, a local industrialist says the plant treated sewage equal to a city with a population of 471,000 persons. In December the city received a letter ffom provincial authorities stating Lethbridge's sewage treatment plant wasn't measuring up to expectations and that too many pollutants were being discharged into the Oldman River, Randy Holfeld, city engineer, said Friday. The problem appears to be with local industry, Mr. Holfeld indicated. There are some extremes of quantity and quality hitting the plant that no plant could handle, said Mr. Holfeld. These "shocks" may interrupt the effective operation of the plant for one to 10 days, he said. Grease and oils are the big concern. Lethbridge allows industry to discharge up to 450 parts of grease per million parts of water into the sewerage system. Calgary only allows 150 parts per million. The Lethbridge plant has received loadings as high as 2,-000 parts per million, Mr. Holfeld said. The city has been urging industry to install metering and automatic sampling devices in their effluent streams to monitor plant effluent on a continual basis. Mr. Holfeld suggested such a scheme would help both the city and the industries. Industry would know exactly the quality and quantity of effluent on which to base decisions regarding effluent treatment practices. In most cases, he said* the cost of installing the equipment could be reoovered by industry through the present, surcharge fund. Under the scheme, industrial surcharges on quality and quantity of effluent is put into a fund, from which industry ; can make application for capital expendilures to improve the quality of their sewage. If the shock loading problems can be satisfactorily , resolved the city could defer an expenditure of more than $1 million to expand the plant, Mr. Holfeld said. As things now stand the plant is going to have to be expanded in 1974 or 1975. Mr. Holfeld said the city is caught in the middle. The province sets the quality of effluent which can be discharged into the river and if the city doesn't meet those standards it is liable to a fine. During a meeting of the industrialists Thursday, Jack Lakie, John Banfield and Jim Gough, were delegated to meet tiie city manager next week t� discuss the problems. 13-year-old Shaughnessy girl missing City police are attempting to locate a 13-year-old Shaughnessy girl missing since Sato-day. Alma Emmaline Holman was dropped off in the downtown area of the city Saturday afternoon, on her way to a babysitting job, and has not been seen since. She's about five feet tall, slender build, with light brown, long straight hair. She was last seen wearing a mauve jacket, red - stripped slacks, and black shoes. Police ask that anyone knowing the whereabouts of this girl contact them immediately.
