Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta IU,, Low cost housing biggest market Business Talk JIM MAYBIE Low cost housing seems to be the biggest market for housebuilders today, it was indicated at the Housebuilders and Urban Development Association of Canada conference in Edmonton this month. Al Fazio, president of the Lethbridge Housebuilders Association, said attention hasn't been directed at low - cost housing in the last three years as it should have been. That's why Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation got involved. The Mark VI was a Joint experimental effort by CMHC, the federal government, Ontario government and house-builders to cut conventional house construction costs. The two - storey, four bedroom house was built in Hamilton. It bad a front - drive garage, rear roofed-patio. The house sold for $29,000 and provided req u i r e d commissions and profits. The land alone cost $11,000. A similar house in Lethbridge, with land costs at $6,-000, using conventional materials and methods would sell for $32,000 to $34,000. One of the major cost - saving items in the experimental house was use of a precast concrete basement. The basement was dug and erected in one day. Metal floor joists and wall studs proved another time-sav er. Floor underlay and wall paneling were screwed to the joists and studs using air guns Use of a hand hammer was largely eliminated. Footings were also precast, The exterior, guaranteed for 10 years, was of prefinished pressed wood. The use of plastic plumbing and water lines also cut costs. Mr. Fazio said it is possible that within three years this type of construction will be done in Lethbridge. Portions are being used now. The experimental house in Hamilton was said to be successful and there is no doubt some phases will bring about changes in present methods of construction and materials use. For local developers it's a matter of getting together with the precast concrete fellows to see what they can do. Some local firms could probably get into that business with little trouble. One of the features of the show and conference was plastic and glass windows, using no metal, which provide a tighter fit and more dust - free unit. Tanner Building Supplies was the only Lethbridge firm with an exhibit at the convention. The firm demonstrated windows and doors manufactured by Tanco Millwork Product*. Others from Lethbridge who attended the convention include: Ray McDougall, secretary - treasurer of the Leth-bridge Housebuilders; Peter Fiorino, first vice - president; Lloyd Kanewischer, past president; Walter Stewart, Keith Bickerton, Ed Witzke, Harold Tanner, Henry Krahn and Henry Gretzinger, local developers. Mr. Fazio reports the trend in Lethbridge is now definitely back to single family dwellings. The trend has been es Doctors' income inquiry draws mixed reaction Saturday, February 27, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 19 By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Canadian Medical Association's proposed investigation of doctors' incomes across Canada has drawn mixed reaction from the CMA's provin c i a I counterparts and health officials. Many said it was unfair to draw conclusions based on gross incomes reported by health insurance commissions because doctors, particularly specialists, have high operating expenses. Others suggested the 6urvey was a timely move. The investigation, to be conducted by the CMA's council on medical economics, is outlined in the current Canadian Medical Association Journal. The group will meet in Ottawa March 18-19 to work out details of the cross-Canada investigation. Memo fo: Close Corporations from E. A. "ED" BRUNNER Supervisor re: Keeping The Team In Control What would happen to your firm if � member died today? Has a fund been set up for the purchase of the stock of a deceased member-or would his interests, perhaps complete control, be lost to an outsider? How can you be sure of "keeping the team in control ?" Business Life Insurance to finance a sale and purchase agreement is the ideal answer, For information call... 327-5514, Dayi 328-7549, Evenings MANUFACTURERS INlUlkNCI It says the study will attempt to determine why there are discrepancies among doctors' incomes and why some of them are "taking financial advantage of medical care insurance programs." Dr. C. R. Giles, assistant secretary of the Alberta Medical Association, said the Alberta group "has already begun an investigation into disparities in doctors' incomes in this province." "We are not proposing equalization of incomes, but level-ling-out is necessary," he said. Dr. Giles s a i d the Alberta group is also concerned because some sections of the medical profession seem to be getting low incomes. The Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission report for the year ended June 30, 1970, was tabled last week in the legislature. However, Dr. Giles and Health Minister James Henderson pointed out that the report includes fees only and no indication of net income after expenses. The report showed the average income of med'cal practitioners from the commission as $46,430 with four doctors getting incomes of more than $240,000. Dr. Giles said more accurate figures are expected to be released this year. Mr. Henderson termed the CM A move a "timely exercise." tablished elsewhere and Lethbridge should soon be in the full swing of it.  �  You wouldn't know the old Macleod's Family Shopping Centre building at 426 6th St. S., now owned by Hatbridge Holdings Ltd. A $50,000 renovation job, including fixtures, being done by Kitson's Wholesale and Anglo Distributors (Kitson's retail division) has made a world of difference to the building, inside and out. Anglo plans to open about April 1, in the new quarters where an expanded line of gift-w a r e, jewellery and housewares and new lines of merchandise will be offered to cardholders. The 5,000 square feet of display area will triple the space in the present premises. This fall, Louis Kohn, president of Kitson's Wholesale and H a t-bridge, plans to display toys, sporting goods and camping equipment on the lower floor of the building. Premises now occupied by Kitson's Wholesale and Anglo at 427 5th St. S*. will be used by Kitson's for tobacco, confection and drug wholesaling to merchants only. Anglo Distributors Stereo and Photographic Shop will remain at 419 5th St. S. The same system of operation will continue in the new premises with sales at "wholesale" prices being made to cardholders. Mr. Kohn started selling in this manner several years ago to members of various groups, societies, clubs, professions and large firms including farmers and ranchers belonging to different associations, pools and co-ops. He felt "group" customers deserved a break by paying cash which eliminates bookwork and the problem of chasing after bad accounts. Anglo now has more than 15,000 cardholders in southern Alberta. *   Koffler Stores Limited of Ontario announced sales of $59 million for the year ended Jan. 31, 1971 compared with $46.6 million the previous financial year, an increase of 26.6 per cent. Murray Koffler, company president, termed the acquisition of Cunningham Drug Stores Ltd., which has a store in Centre Village Mall, "the most exciting and meaningful step ever undertaken by our company. What is b e i n g created is not only the largest drug store chain in Canada both, in terms of sales and numbers of stores (there are 88 stores in the western chain), but Canada's first coast - to-coast drug store chain." in mm ss v i ix win Oil firms discuss joint operation NEW YORK (AP) - Continental Oil Co. and Burmah Oil Co. Ltd. said here they are negotiating to combine their assets and operations. Continental has assets of about $3 billion. Burmah's assets total about $2 billion. The announcement was made by John G.

By PETER LEICHNITZ Canadian Press Staff Writer Banking issues highlighted an otherwise-dull week of trading on Canadian stock markets.

At Toronto, the banking sector of the industrial index jumped more than 5V4 points, closing at 219.73.

Bankers grab spotlight Prices advanced fractionally Tuesday in what one market observer termed "bargain buying." Wednesday's news of further ir^erest-rate reductions sent prices higher for the remainder of the week. The Toronto industrial index rose .99 on the week, closing at 177.39. ADVANCE WAS SMALL At New York, Wall Street posted a fractional advance. The Dow Jones industrial average of 30 blue-chip issues advanced .27, closing Friday at 878.83.

The announcement was made here by Manitoba Premier Ed Schreyer and federal Works Minister Arthur Laing. The cost-sharing formula calls, in general, for the federal government to contribute 55 per cent of the total cost and the province 45 per cent. The formula would cover about $8 million worth of projects. The remaining $2 million would be provided by the federal government under the National Housing Act and by a special grant. The major items in the redevelopment plan include a medical-dental facility, public housing, sewer and water projects, street paving, drainage and general community improvement. Administration, public works, library and recreations buildings and a secondary school will be constructed, and public works and public safety equipment purchased. The new program is separate from a $400,000 federal contribu tion to a sewer and waiterline system started in 1969. Concedes defeat PERTH, Australia (Reuter) -Premier Sir David Brand, who has headed a Liberal-Country party coalition in West Australia state for 12 years, conceded defeat to the Labor party in last Saturday's elections.

Thisi compared with a net profit of $548,000 on earnings of $33.9 million in 1969. Labor un rest, a sluggish economy, delay in integrating B.C. Airlines into PWA's schedules and a downturn in northern oil exploration contributed to the loss, a preliminary report said During the year, PWA ac quired Byers Transport Ltd and bought B.C. Airlines for $1.1 million. An injunction granted employees of B.C. Air lines held up for three months its integration with, PWA. Four planes were added to the company's fleet, a Boeing 737, Boeing 707 for international charter service, a Hercules for cargo, and a 50-passenger Convair 640. The program is expected to take two to three years to complete. A committee of federal and provincial officials is to establish priorities and implement it. The redevelopment plan is the first step toward consolidating communities in the Churchill area into a single townsite. Mr. Laing said in a news release the federal government would be providing housing in Churchill for its employees, and that, the federal enclave at Fort Churchill would be eliminated by 1974, with the exception of any operational facilities for which a continuing need may exist. With the elimination of the Fort Churchill establishment, the federal government would fulfill its financial commitment to Churchill by providing grants, Mr. Laing said. Premier Schreyer, In the same news release, said both governments were anxious to see that Churchill was given "new impetus, a new environment, and a new future."
