WHAT A DIFFERENCE A WIND MAKES-The picture on the left (as is plain, to see) is of a pretty girl whose hair is being blown awry by the wind. The picture on the right bears a startling resemblance to a Martian Glymphyrl-sdop in its winter form, but is actually another head of hair being swirled around by another wind. One or the penalties the city's warm weather the past few days has been winds gusting as high as 45 to 50 miles an hour, not the easiest thing on hairstyles. Council moves to end EDC By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter The days of the city's Econ- omic Development Com- mission may be numbered. Qity council Monday passed a motion by Deputy-Mayor Rex Little that "the bylaw con- cerning the creation of the Economic Development Com- mission be repealed." The next step will be the preparation of the necessary bylaw to achieve this end. This will be presented to council. Aldermen Steve Kotch, Vaughan Hembroff and Jim Anderson opposed the motion. Aid. Anderson said he would vote for the motion only if it could be shown that the EDC was actively impeding the eco- nomic growth of the city or that it was a drain on the city's resources.

Phong 318-7752 By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home District is facing a def- icit this year, administrator D. J. Schindeler told the board of directors Monday night. The preliminary budget calls for expenditures of this year compared with last year. The board approved a rec- ommendation which could re- duce the number of paid hours at the auxiliary hospital by 3.- 000, resulting in the saving of more than in salaries. The board was- told the num- ber of paid hours at the hos- pital has been steadily de- creased since 1968. The audited financial state- ment showed the auxiliary hospital and nursing home dis- trict ended 1970 with a deficit of Total expenditures were A depre- ciation allowance resulted i n a net deficit for. the year of The deficit last year compares with in 1969. The audited statement lists a net deficit for 1969 of after provision for deprecia- tion. The district's accumulated reserve of S67.000, minus 000 already committed, leaves a reserve of for this year's operations. Board mem- bers are not counting on hav- ing any reserve next year. Thursday Mr. Schindeler, au- ditor Tom McNab and hoard chairman Jim Graham are go- ing to Edmonton to attempt to recoup part of the the district expended in excess costs. The board was told there is an inequity in the way the province calculates i t s grants and because of efficient opera- tion of the Lethbridge aux- iliary hospital, the hospital has in effect, been penalized. The provincial grant is based on rated bed days rath- er than on patient days. The Lethbridge auxiliary operated almost 100 per cent capacity (as close to 100 per cent as a hospital can come) while an. almost identical auxiliary op-1 erated at a lower capacity. The other auxiliary received a larger grant than Lethbridge which had additional expenses because of the higher occu- pancy, although a lower per patient cost. The board hopes to recoup all or part of the excess costs incurred last year and open the door for additional grants this- year by pointing out the inequities in the present system. Accurate budgeting at the auxiliary, as with all hospitals, is impossible because salary negotiations with staff, and even fringe benefits in some cases, have not been con- cluded. Nursing home plans ready for Edmonton R, AKROYD LTD PLUMBING HEATING and GASFITTING 2634 21st Ave. S. For New Installations and Alterations Phone 328-2106 FREE ESTIMATES Plans for a 150 bed nursing home for North Lethbridge are to be sent to Edmonton this weekend for final approval. The Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home District board reviewed the plans by Robins, Mitchell and Watson Monday night. The board is looking at April for the start of construction on the million facility. Comple- tion will take about a year. The home, to be located north of 15th Ave. N. between 15th and 16th St., will almost double the city's nursing home beds. The board decided to inform (he city it is not interested in purchasing an additional 4'i acres north of the nursing home site. The city offered the site for an acre. The board, not anticipating it would really need the property in the immediate future (and consid- ering the price tag) decided not to buy. In other business. Young, Parkyn and McNab was reap- poinled auditor for 1971. The board decided patients' money will be deposited in a special bank account with in- terest being used for general comforts for all patients. The beard also decided to turn over to a collection agen- cy about 25 "tmcollectable" accounts totalling Members met for an hour in closed session with architect George Robins to discuss Ihc proposed nursing home and to discuss a hospital policy and union implications. to do away with it, he said. He also suggested that the com mission's ineffectiveness could be a [unction of the members, rather the way the EDC was structured. Aid. Joe Balla, speaking as an ex-member of the commis- sion, said that while there were arguments both for and against retaining the EDC, the fact was that "it just hasn't been working." Aid. Little, who has also served on the commission, was more detailed in his comments. Referring to the need for ag- gressive seeking out of new in- dustries, he said "the time of vacuous daydreaming is over." He advocated a "task force" approach, with a particular group of resource people from the community brought togeth- er to tackle a specific prob- lem. He s c o r e d the EDC for its lack of effort and suggested that since council is held re- sponsible for policies it should be wholly responsible, rather than have the EDC act as an advisory body. Calling the present situation a he urged council to "call a spade a spade and get with it." He noted that poeple in the community with ideas ap- proach city council, rather than the EDC and said coun- cil should be taking fuller ad- vantage of the "inputs" from this source. Briefing for aldermen Given unanimous approval by city council Monday was a resolution by Alderman Jim Anderson that briefing sessions for aldermen be held by the city, manager. The sessions will not be helc according to a fixed schedule but will be called as the neet arises. The sessions will not replace the individual alderman's right to ask questions of the city manager at council meetings. Boost in sunflower crop set for south farmers By STEVE BAREIIAM Herald Agricultural Writer Growing sunflowers has blos- somed into a profitable indus- try for southern Alberta farm- ers. Fotaving a successful acre pilot project in 1970, Fed- eral Grain Ltd. plans on con- tracting about acres of sunflowers in the south this year. The bulk of the harvest, 22 million pounds, has already been negotiated for sale to Ja- pan. Federal Grain officials say growing sunflowers for oil has an almost unlimited market, mth domestic uses at the mo- ment being able to absorb far greater quantities of sunflower oil than presently available. Sunflower oil though gener- ally considered a very high quality oil competes on the world market with other edible oils such as soybean and rape- seed oils. There is an increased de- mand for hulled seed in the baking and confectionery trade, and sunflower meats are used in the manufacturing of chocolate bars where they can replace nuts. The demand for bird seed is also increasing, but the market for roasting type sunflower seeds is limited and not expect- ed to show significant' in- creases. While many farmers in south- ern Alberta' may be hesitant to strike out into raising an en- tirely new crop such as sun- flowers, Federal Grain says the prospect should be given careful consideration. "Sunflower is a cash crop which can be as profitable as cereal crops. The cost of pro- ducing sunflowers is about the same or lower than the cost of raising cereal crops. "Assuming a price of four cents per pound, (Federal's contract price for 1971) a farm er can expect a gross return of to per acre." Federal also contends that the growing of sunflowers also distributes labor and ma- chinery demands; helps in re- ducing hazards of a one-crop i being held throughout southern wheat or grain economy; is I Alberta this week, to acquaint Study asked on flights east-west City council's budget com- mittee will deal with a motion by Alderman Steve Kotch that a study be done by a trans- portation consultant to deter- mine the city's "air transpsrt entitlements." The motion by Aid. Kotch refers specifically to east-west flights by a major air car- rier. The study, if undertaken, would ascertain the city's posi- tion in requesting such service be provided. If the need were proven the city could then approach the Canadian Transport Commis- sion rn institute east-west con- tinental flights. normally grown as a stubble crop and can be used effect- ively to extend crop rotation. lereal crops can be grown sunflowers.
