ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centra Village Mall Phone 328-3201 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, February 10, 1973 PAGES 13 TO 29 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lower Level 7�h Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 ADDING MACHINES City Packers operation may be split, moved A proposal that City Packers Ltd. split up its operation and move the feedlot and rendering plant away from the city is now being considered by the company. City Packers representatives met with Environment Minister Bill Yurko, Mayor Andy Anderson and County of Lethbridge officials last week to discuss the possible relocation of the plant. With the feedlot and rendering part of the operation remaining in the county but away from the city, the meat packing operation would be moved to a location in the city's industrial park, Lawrence Smith, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission told The Herald. Mayor Anderson has put the matter on the agenda for discussion at Monday's city council meeting. Mr. Smith said it would cost City Packers "a lot of money" to bring the present plant at Scientist to speak on S. America A Latin American scientist will speak to the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs at noon Thursday about the social problems and aspirations of people in South America. Dr. Lilla Alberta de Marquez, a chemist from the national research institute at Mexico City who' has spent six weeks at the Lethbridge Research Station, will speak at the luncheon chaired by Ralph Thrall, a governor of the University of Lethbridge. "Although a chemist, Dr. Marquez is a keen student of social relations in Latin America and Its fascinating history," says the council's newsletter.

Even with the large expense, for pollution control equipment and clean-up operations, the environment department would only give City Packers a five-year permit to operate from that location, he added. Mr. Smith said for the company to relocate its plant within the county, it must not only meet provincial standards but must adhere to the county's de velopment control bylaw. No time schedule has been put on the move, if that is what City Packers decides to do. Council to hold town hall meeting ' City council will convene one hour earlier than usual Monday, at 7 p.m., to meet with the general public for a town-hall type session. The meetings are held once every three months for the public to discuss with council matters pertaining to city business without having first written to council expressing the intention to speak. When the regular meeting gets under way, council will consider moving the community services department offices to the Lethbridge Community College from the present location at 5 th Ave. and 2nd St. S. In a letter to council, Bob Bartlett, community services director, recommends the LCC location over two others, one downtown and the other at Holiday Village. Space is available on the third floor of the LCC Science Building for $51,926 rent over three years. The two other locations rent for $65,000 and $68,000 for three years. The office space at the college could be available within 30 days, Mr. Bartlett said. The community services department has been forced by lack of space to move from its existing offices. FRIENDSHIP CENTRE The building now housing that department has been requested by the board of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre for use by the centre. The board has been given notice to vacate the present centre location at 102 5th St. S. by Feb. 28. Council will also consider amending the hours of business bylaw, following a public hearing on the proposed changes. The amendment would change the number of grocery store classifications to two from three with the stipulation that those stores with less than 1,700 square feet of floor area be allowed to remain open between 7 a.m. and midnight. Stores with more than 1,700 square feet of floor area would be restricted to the standard business hours included in the bylaw. Other agenda items include A letter from the I.B.E.W., Local 254, whose members are employed by the city in the power plant, requesting careful study before sale of the power plant to Calgary Power Ltd. A letter from Edmonton Mayor Ivor Dent informing council of a "massive campaign" to get higher old age and veteran pensions and asking for council's support in the campaign. A letter from the president of the YMCA requesting council to consider expanding handball and squash courts at the Y rather than putting courts in the proposed sportsplex.

Both will cost consumers more soon. Dramatic increases in the cost of poultry feed additives, primarily protein, during the past few months have driven production costs to near record highs. The Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board, in a move to relieve the cost price squeeze for producers, will add five cents a dozen to retail egg prices. An official of Lilydale Poultry Sales, Alberta's largest poulty processing firm, said poultry producers will also be paid more for their chickens. He suggested the producers will receive one cent a pound increase Monday and "this will have to be passed on to the consumer." Ed Smulders, president of the Southern Alberta Poultry Council, said in an interview, "The trend for feed prices is higher and higher." He said the protein additive, mainly from rapeseed meal, soybean meal and meat meal, is the costly ingredient for poultry feed. Soybean meal from the United States has increased to as much as $240 per ton from the normal $120 per ton. Rapeseed meal from Western Canadian Seed Processors has doubled in price in five months and meat meal from the packing houses has also doubled in a short time. He said barley and wheat prices are also reaching record highs. Mr. Smulders said he looks for no change in the trend "far into 1973." The price of eggs in Lethbridge averages about 69 cents per dozen for Grade A large, 63 cents for Grade A medium, 55 cents for Grade A small and 49 cents a dozen for Grade B. One Lethbridge retailer said eggs usually increase in price during the spring because the chickens just don't lay as many. He said they were about 75 cents a dozen last year at this time. He said the poultry prices could also increase but they fluctuate so much anyway that one or two cents doesn't really matter that much. Games site decision expected today Announcement was to be made today that one of six locations in the province will stage the 1975 Canada Winter Games. Marc Lalonde, minister of national health and welfare, was to make known his decision on the Games site at 4:30 p.m. local time.

He said support is now being centred on a second protest petition being developed at Lethbridge Community College. A national referendum on the issue is being asked by students in that petition. "If they want Canadians, to stay in Vietnam longer than 60 days, then they'd better bring it before the people in the form of a national plebiscite. "You just don't play around with that many lives without asking the people," Mr. Shugarman said. Local radio and television station officials said they plan to cut into regular programs to report the decision as soon as it is known. At 11:35 p.m., CJOC-TV will telecast the videotape of the banquet at which the announcement was made.
