Firefighters discovered the fire in the wrecked body of a panel truck. Upon extinguish- Recreation centre planned near city A recreation complex, in- f will be held in the German- eluding a rodeo arena and ice centre is planned for the outskirts of Lethbridge. The Hilltoppers' Gymkhana Club, in operation since it was incorporated under the Societies Act in 1967, will build and run the complex. Finance for the $80,000 to $100,000 centre will come from the sale of debentures and possibly some provincial government grants, through the recreation branch. William H. (Bill) Lumley, president of the Hilltoppers' club, said a 20-acre site has been picked about three-quarters of a mile west of Highway 3 near Coalhurst. First stage of the complex would be a 100 by 70 foot recreation hall, complete with bar and kitchen. Stage two would see a 300 by 120 foot arena added. It would be for rodeo and gymkhana and would provide an ice arena in the winter months. Legal aspects of the enterprise are now being cleared. It is hoped work will begin this summer and the first stage of the business put in operation before winter. Mr. Lumley said government and community officials he has contacted to date have been "optimistic" about the project and feel it will provide an essential structure - especially for the north county recreation division, County of Lethbridge. Several fund - raising projects have been scheduled by the Hilltoppers' club to add to the building fund. A card party will be held Saturday in the Coalhurst Elementary School; a hardtime dance, March 19, in the Diamond City Community Hall; a walkathon from Picture Butte to Coalhurst, March 2fi and a spring banquet April 16.

Property values drop on Mayor Magrath Drive The year-old Dunlop Ford Ltd. controversy seems about to erupt again, as residents of Slight surpluses in LCC operations The Lethbridge Community! College operated with slight surpluses during 1969 and for tho six months ending June 30, 1970, according to a college report to be submitted to the Alberta colleges commission. Copies of the report, which covers LCC finance, enrolment, programs, library, counselling, personnel and other college operational matters, will be sent to more than 100 institutions and individuals in Canada and the U.S. In 1969 the college had a total income of $1,291,714 and total expenditures of $1,158,103, resulting in a surplus of $133,611. The surplus was almost used up by payment of bad accounts still owed the college by Canada Manpower, and by the deficit accrued in the first sue months of 1970. (The college was directed by the colleges commission to produce an 18-month fiscal statement to make the fiscal year and school year the same; in future the fiscal year will be July 1 to June 30.)

Revenue in 1970 (the first year of operation on full government support without a local tax) was 70.5 per cent provincial government, 12.5 per cent rental income from the University of Lethbridge for LCC facilities the university is using, 10 per cent from Canada Manpower grants for special Manpower training programs offered by the college and 6.8 per cent from student tuition fees. The annual report also shows student enrolment increased from 535 at the end of the 1969 spring semester to 621 at the end of the 1969 fall semester and was 613 at the end of the 1970 spring semester. There were 161 students graduated in the spring 1969 Convocation exercises and 181 in the spring, 1970 Convocation. Slightly less than a third of the LCC students are women. Until September, 1969 the college had no library staff, and few books, depending on the university for the library facilities. By the middle of 1970 the college had a librarian and the start of its own filing system, as well as about 5,000 books and subscriptions to 125 magazines and journals. The college continues to offer several hundred courses in six schools: agriculture, business education, continuing education, liberal education, nursing education and technical-vocational education. LCC also lias two full-time counsellors offering advice and assistance to college students for their career, academic and personal problems.

Hostel need stressed to chamber A letter has been sent to the civic affairs committee of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce advising the committee of the need for a men's hostel in the city. The letter was sent by May Thurston, supervisor of AID, who says the city lacks short-term accommodation for young and older transient men. AID is the Advice, Information and Direction phone - in service which advises callers of available community services. The service is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Mrs. Thurston said she has received an increasing number of queries from men of all ages asking for overnight accommodation, but there is no hostel to refer them to. The same problem is being faced by the city police and Salvation Army, and the provincial social development department which Mrs. Thurston said is doing a "tremendous job" of placing the men, under the circumstances. The only applicable accommodation currently is a boarding house run privately by Mrs. Julia Fisher, but Mrs. Fisher is expected to cease the operation in the near future. Mrs. Thurston said Odvssey House served a "tremendous need" last summer, but another summer is coming up and apparently nothing is being planned for young transi-erts. "People tend to ask why these transients come to the. city without plans for accommodation, but the point is the transients are here. What are we going to do about them? We can't just tell them to go back where they came from." She suggested a hostel with facilities for 20 men, for two-or three - night stays, would fit the bill. This would give the visitors some time to look for a job and for more permanent living quarters. Convocation for college is May 1 Lethbridge Community College Convocation exercises will be held this year, May 1, at tho Southminster Church. About 200 students are expected to receive diplomas and graduation certificates during the ceremonies. It is the first time the college convocation has been held outside LCC's own facilities. There are too many graduates this year to continue use of LCC's own facilities as has been done in past years. Orientation The Lethbridge Community College will hold its fifth annual orientation session March 19 for southern Alberta education administrators. Last year 65 persons attended the orientation, including school district superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, vice - principals and counsellors. Snow break will be short lived A series of cool, moist Pa-cific disturbances currently passing through southern Alberta will only briefly interrupt the mild spell of the past three weeks, but should serve as a reminder that winter is still with us. The front dropped one-half inch of snow on Lethbridge during the early hours Thursday and the snow is expected to continue falling all day. Temperatures today should be in the 35 degree range, dropping down near 10 above overnight. Winds will be from the north 20 m.p.h. and gusty. Temperatures Friday should be similar, but with the passage of the system, winds will shift to the west 25 m.p.h. and gusty, Wednesday's high and low temperature wer 49 above and 30 respectively. The all time record temperatures for Feb. 25 are 61 above set in 1907 and 27 below set in 1936. Temperatures one year ago on this date were 49 above and 29 above. the Mayor Magrath Drive and 15th and 16th Ave. S. area are preparing to complain to the Lethbridge Municipal Planning Commission. Central to the complaints, expected to be heard from a delegation at the next MFC meeting, are a drop in property values in the immediate neighborhood of the new car lot. The court of revision has reduced assessments by about 10 per cent on the homes adjacent to the lot, which was not supposed to happen. The MPC originally permitted Dunlop Ford to build on the site with some easing of zoning restrictions and in the face of petitions from the residents. Other complaints have also been made, including the annoyance of bright lights shining over the parked cars on the lot and into residential windows; unsightly junk collected around the perimeter of the lot, which the MPC had directed was not to happen; Expansion of the area used to park cars, without a permit first being issued by the city development officer; Dunlop Ford employees are apparently driving cars through a hedge and across a sidewalk for easy exit and entry to the lot - the hedge is the property of Dunlop Ford, and is designed to eventually grow high enough to hide the car lot from residential view; Music provided by the com-epany to entertain customers while they inspect cars is ap- day that Doug Dunlop, presi- parently being played late into dent of Dunlop Ford Ltd. has the evening and annoying agreed to make some changes neighbors. in the business's operations, but The MPC was told Wednes- apparently has not yet done so. Reserve leases to be advertised Truck body plant application okayed The Lethbridge Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday approved an application from Western Truck Body Manufacturing Ltd. to construct a truck body and cab manufacturing plant at 3011 6th Ave. A N. The firm, which would also produce other metal products, can now make application to the federal government for' assistance under the incentive grants program. MPC also approved a request from Le Roy Gygi to establish a home occupation - office in connection with a gravel trucking and hauling business at his residence at 805 - 6th St. S. A rider attached to the approval by the MPC was that the permit will run only for one year, and Mr. Gygi is entitled to park only one three-ton truck on his premises. In similar applications, the commission approved establishment of a home occupation-office for a sewer cleaning business at 1603 Scenic Heights, by R. McGill, provided all equipment is carried and stored in the one half-ton truck he may park on the premises. Robot Drywalling was given permission to establish a home occupation-office at 1609 Lakeside Road, provided no goods are stored on the premises and no vehicles larger than half-ton trucks are parked nearby. The three permits resulted in some discussion by MPC members concerning a 1968 city bylaw restricting home occupation - office licencees to parking only half-ton vehicles near their homes. The bylaw, designed to restrict residential use of larger trucks and nighttime opera- tions, also allows the MPC to permit larger vehicles or other regulation easements if it believes the situation warrants it. It was pointed out that many large vehicles are parked in front of residences in the city legally, since their operators are not working from a home business. In other business, the MPC granted permission to Shoppers' World Ltd. to move two homes from 322 and 326 23rd St. S. to 2120 and 2116 14th Ave. N. The homes' current sites will become part of the Shoppers' World hotel parking lot. And Nu-Mode Homes was granted permission to build single-family residences at 520 McKillop Place, 3320 6th Ave S., 3324 6th Ave. S., and 3328 6th Ave. S., subject to submis sion of detailed drawings abid ing by existing bylaws, to Tosh Kanashiro, city development officer. G. R. Rittenhouse was grant ed permission to construct a drive-in bank at 1619 Mayor Magrath Drive, also subject to submission of detailed draw ings. The commission refused permission to Mrs. H. A. Waldren to convert a single - family dwelling at 225 Dieppe Blvd into a semi-detached residence, since the area is predominantly single - family and city planners prefer that it remain so for the time being. Applications to develop two trailer and mobile home parks in the riverbottom area, tabled at a previous meeting were de ferred again until city council deals with proposed riverbottom development areas. often copied,,, never equaled Fender Instruments have earned world wide recognition for quality and workmanship. CIS Muik.l (Htntwili By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer CARDSTON - The Blood Indian Tribal Council, representing about 400 Indian farmers, and about 50 non-native farmers who lease land on the reserve were still at loggerheads over the new farm land lease agreement Wednesday night resulting in a council decision to advertise the availability of the land. There are 115,000 acres of farm land involved in the block leases. The old lease called for a $2.50 per acre summerfallow cash payment and $1.50 cash per acre rental payment on the total cultivated acreage. The Indian farmers demanded council ask for a $5 summerfallow cash payment and $1.50 cash acreage payment. Following extensive discussion Wednesday, council decided it had to have the $1.50 cash acreage rental for the total cultivated land leased but the amount of payment for summerfallow would be left to the lessee and the Indian farm er. The lessee would have to make the total acreage pay ment and summerfallow payment by April 1 before he could get on the land. The agreement is signed for a five year period. A motion from the floor asked chairman Les Tailfeath-ers to call for a show of hands on the cultivatec' acreage rental payment. There was a unanimous show when the non-native farmers voted for a $1.50 cash rental payment on the seeded acreage while no farmer showed he would be willing to pay the $1.50 per acre on the total cultivated acreage. Since the decision was made by council, the governing body for all reserve activity, to make the total acreage rental payment $1.50 per acre, the two groups were at a standstill. Mr. Tailfeathers said the tribe had no alternative but to advertise the 115,000 acres of farm land with the hope of finding people to lease it. "We are running into a Unas factor with spring preparation work just a little more than two months away," he said. Decision on election CARDSTON - The Blood Band council will make a final decision March 8 to decide when nominations will close for a special re-election of the 12 tribal councilors. Following the Nov. 19, 1970 election, two members of the tribe filed an official protest declaring they had not been given proper chance for election. J. G. McGilp, director of the community affairs branch for the department of Indian affairs in Ottawa, has authorized the special election. In a letter, Mr. McGilp said there was in respect of the election of the 12 councillors a violation of the Indian Act that might have affected the result of their election in that the names of two duly nominated candidates for the office of councillor were inadvertently left off the ballot. The election of the 12 councillors Nov. 19 has been set aside by Order-in-Council. "I have got the most polluting neighbor in Lethbridge.
