Historical Association. George Watson, vice presl- i dent of Whoop Up Country Chapter, will accept the award for Mr, Johnston at today's an- nual banquet of the His'torical Society of Alberta in Calgary. Mr. Johnston, who was un- able to attend tlie banquet, said he looks upon the award as an honor to the Whoop-Up Country Chapter of the society rather than to himself personally. He said without an active or- ganization in Lethbridge, as well as moral and financial sup- port, his contribution would not have been as heavilv fell. for his small parcel's safety. All (he time I was on (he bus they were talking have no idea what about, because they were whispering. Still, that they had things to say be- tween them is quite a hit different than many other one sees on a bus, or in a cafe, spending hours ol nothing-in-common silence. But there is one thing, one terribly important thing that this menially retarded couple did not have: they could not long survive without the assis- tance of those of us endowed with a greater ability to comprehend. Canada of the 20th Century is thankfully civilized enough to allow everyone born the right to don't have a bunch of bloodthirsty birthright survival tests or puberty rights. We let the mentally retarded and persons unfortu- nate enough to have other handicaps, live. Who would consider euthanasia for such human beings? But in letting them live, we also accept some personal responsibility for their welfare. Unfortunate- ly, we don't keep up all the time with this respon- sibility. We don't seem lo be willing to contribute our time or our money voluntarily to those associations which are socially charged by assisting and providing handicapped persons with the compre- hension and other abilities they lack. Typically lazy and just a bit selfish, we seldom donate to charitiies (not even individual And to our shame, we have also allowed our city council to cut out its tax support of such agencies. Surely, logically, tax supported charities are the common-sense answer to the human failings which result in a lack of private charitable donations. That couple on the bus, and others like them, are our responsibility it was we let them be born. And because we elect a council to represent us and to collectively assist us in overcoming our individual weaknesses, we should surely expect its members to be certain no needed charity fails for lack of funds human failings. Meanwhile, the charities still take private dona- tions.

The applications, involving five (our-plexes and two, dwellings, were proposed for various parts of the city lut all on lols zoned for singlc-aniily dwellings. The MPC members agreed that to approve Ihe devclop-ncnls on the basis of precede it would be effectively the properties in accommodate multi-funny housing. Alderman Vera Ferguson said she has observed a continuation of people buying up land zoned for single family housing and building mulli family dwellings for revenue purposes. She said these buildings should be situalioned in an H-2 Mile, where the price of land Is higher. Finance director Allisler Find-lay told the commission of several instances in recent years when a land speculator hae baught land zoned R-l and had sold it in a short period of tirrn at a high profit. Mr. Findlay gave one enam-ple of a man buying property from the city in 1968 for and selling the same piece ol and Hie following year to H local realtor f o r mulli family development for A spokesman for one of the unsuccessful applicants, Dana Con Contractors, told the commission the land his company irantcd lo build a fo-ur-plex on purchased from the same realtor will] t h e understand ing the land was zoned R-> which allows mulli family buildings. The property was zoned R-l hy the city and was so zonet when Ihe property was pur chased by Dana Con Contrac tors. The MPC accepted Aid. Ferguson's suggestion lhal future applications be dealt with strict-ly according to the zoning bv aw and that D-l single-famiij dwelling lots be maintained for such purposes. In older business, tlie commission tabled an application from Rsy Chambers requesting approval in principle of a mobile name park al Ave and 13th St. N. The applic-atcn will be before the MPC next week when the engineering director comes back with a report concerning an access road north of the de velopinenl. Preliminary plans call for a liro-slage development, the first of which would be 16 acres con laming JOD lots for mobile lome.s.

Tenders opened Friday were higher than anticipated, AMA manager John Rhodes said. The orginal estimate was in Hie region of but Mr. Rhodes declined to disclose how much higher the tenders were. "N7o tender was accepted I he said. ''We will hold a meeting shortly to discuss the situation. However, there will not be major changes to the original plan, only some remodelling. "It is hoped this will be accomplished in the near high and that construction will commence al aji earJy date, some Lime this spring." The proposed AMA building is next to the Let li bridge Herald policy sought for libraries Chief public librarian George Dew has suggested a "policy frame w o r k" be created in which school, college and university people can make better use of the Lethbridge public library. In a letter to Lethbridge school superintendent Dr. 0. P. Larson, Mr. Dew suggested a meeting between school and library people to discuss "common problems." Mr. Dew said a policy framework and a program are needed so that those using each other's libraries can determine and share costs. "The idea is lo regularize what has been done for years and to set down a program so that everybody knows what everybody else is up he said. Jlr. Dew was hopeful that people with authority to make policy from the public and separate school districts, the college and the nniversitv libraries would get together and decide on joint-use policy.
