Doctors want more voice in dean choice The medical profession claims it is not adequately represented on the committee that will search for the next dean of the University of Alberta's faculty of medicine. An editorial in the February issue of the Alberta Medical Bulletin, the official publication of the 2,300-mem.ber Alberta Medical Association, says that in the proposed make-up of the committee "students have as much representation as the full-time medical faculty members and three times as much representation as the medical profession." The editorial lists the committee makeup as headed by the university academic vice-president and including the three full - time members of the faculty, three students, one member from an outside faculty elected by the General Faculties Council, and another member nominated by the medical profession. "Even worse," says the editorial, "the part-time teachers of medicine, who in total contribute an enormous effort in the teaching of medicine and who, together with other members of the profession have the closest relationship to the general public, are not represented at all." "The "inequity" has been pointed out by the medical profession, but no final decision has been reached. The editorial also maintains the public should be represented. "There are strong arguments for a voice representing the public - which not only pays a large part of the cost of medical education but is more and more concerned with the Day-care centre gets LIP grant The University of Lethbridge co-operative child day-care centre has been awarded an $8,992 grant by the federal government under the Local Initiatives Program. A spokesman for the local Canada Manpower Centre said the grant will go toward paying wages for five employees at the centre. The day-care centre provides a place for single parents to leave their children while attending classes at the university. ultimate cost of what doctors are doing." "In addition, the contribution of a member who comes to the university from another medical srrhool and who perhaps examines the problems with an unprejudiced eye, might have a salutary effect on the deliberations of the committee," the editorial says. In conclusion, the editorial states the situation "is but one of the reasons why people outside the fulltime university structure are beginning to doubt the ability of the university to solve its own problems. "So much of what they do simply makes no sense." Dr. W. C. MacKenzie, a former head of the medical faculty's department of surgery, is the current dean of medicine. The University of Alberta graduates about 110 doctors a year. Hog AIR CONDITION NOW with the ROUND ONE by ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD. FURNACES, SHEET METAL and HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING 2214 43 St. S.

Aldermen give go-ahead on construction of new city library City council Monday granted authority for Bird Construction cf Calgary to begin work on the new library as soon as possible. The bid submitted by Bird Construction, for $896,717, was the lowest of eight tenders and was the one accepted by council at the reconynendation of the architects, Robins, Mitchell, Wateon. The estimated construction Urns is 11 months with an additional month to furnish the building. The cost of furnish- ings and landscaping is not included in the Bird bid. On top of the construction cost is another $94,000 for architect's fees, special consultant's fees and a site survey and soil investigation. The total expenditure of S990.000 is $5,000 less than the amount allocated by council last year. The high bid was submitted by Smith Bros, and Wilson of Calgary for $1,007,700. Two Lethbridge firms, Boy- chuck Construction and Kenwood Engineering, submitted bids of $939,000 and $944,000 respectively. The library will be built on the old Central School property at the corner of 5th Ave. and 9th St. S. Council wants P.O. to remain standing Jerry Potts in bronze A special RCMP commemorative bronze sculpture has been completed by Coaldale artist Corne Martens. Featuring Col. James F. Macleod on horseback and Indian Scout Jerry Potts pointing the way, the bronze sculpture could become part of the display in the Fort Macleod Museum. A move is now underway to allow the citizens of Southern Alberta to purchase the $2,500-sculpture as a presentation to the RCMP to help celebrate the force's.centennial. If successful, the mold will be destroyed, making the sculpture unique. Several individuals have made offers to purchase the piece and other groups have asked for duplicates. By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer City council Monday went on record as favoring retention of the Post Office buildings as it is and directed the administration to continue negotiations with the federal government to try and find an alternate use for the structure. The matter was brought before council by City Manager Tom Nutting who said public advice from the aldermen would help the federal public works department decide what to do with the building. Mr. Nutting recommended two alternatives - demolish the post office and replace it on the same site with a combined government-commercial tower, or demolish the building and put up a new one in the downtown redevelopment area west of 5th St. S. Aid. Ed Bastedo said, "The post office is not our field. Let the federal people deal with it." Aid. Bill Kergan disagreed and suggested that since the building has been a landmark here since 1912, it should remain and be renovated. "We're too quick to tear down old buildings simply because they are 50 years old," Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said. "We should recommend the post office be renovated, leaving it basically as it is." Aid. Steve Kotch was alone in his opposition to renovating the building. "Architecturally, it's anything but beautiful. It's an eyesore," he said. Mr. Nutting told council the cost of renovation would be higher than the cost of constructing a new building. He added the location presents some substantial problems concerning traffic movement and parking. Aid. Cam Barnes said any construction on a federal building could be delayed about two years because of federal commitments on construction at the Lethbridge Research Station east of the city. Games Sportplex timetable okayed A development sequence calling for a May 1 start and a Sept. 1, 1974, completion of the Canada Games Sportsplex was approved by city council Monday. A contract between the city and Phillips, Barratt, Hillier, Jones and Partners for the firm to be both architect and project manager is to be drawn up and approved by March 15. The architects designed the colliseum in Vancouver. The project will be controlled by the city both before and after the 1975 Canada Winter Pound keeper kept without incentive The present pound keepr will continue picking up stray dogs for the city, but without collecting a $1 incentive fee for each dog caught. A contract, calling for payment of $32,918 by the city to Glen Anderson for services as a pound keeper, was approved by city council Monday, effective until the end of 1974. The only contentions point in the contract was the $1 bonus. The administration had recommended the bonus be tried Attorney-geseral queried ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENIAL MECHANIC Schwartz Btcjg. 222 5th St. S. / Phone 328-4095 NOTICE To All Customers and Friends EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 1973 ACTIVE TV SERVICE 1238-3rd AVE.

PHONE 327-5020 JIM VAN LOO Cih' hall addition proposal tabled A recommendation from the city manager that $180,000 be allocated for construction of a major addition to city hall this year was tabled by city council Monday for two weeks. The mayor and city manager were also directed to ask Attorney - General Merv Leitch when the city can expect an answer concerning purchase of the court house on 4th Ave. and 11th St. S. An offer has been made by the city to buy the court house from the province, for an estimated $275,000 but "there is nothing positive to indicate we can get it," City Manager Tom Nutting told council. He said there is some indication, however, that if the city's bid to buy the building is accepted, "we'll get it in late 1975." The city can't move on a major addition to city hall until there is a definite commitment either way by the province on the court house, Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said. "Any money we spend in advance would be misspent," Aid. Hembroff said. He said he would want to know such tilings as how much of a city hall addition would be office space and how much would be for new council chambers before he would vote on allocating money for expansion. A recent report from the city manager indicated the court house could provide much of the office space needed by the city administration.

Phone 327-6565 City-owned land first A resolution that the city adopt a policy of servicing city-owned land first then negotiating with private developers to service their land was approved by city council Mon-day. The resilution, submitted by Aid. Vera Ferguson, gives the administration a firm directive to come to council with exact costs plus a profit for servicing, Aid. Ferguson said. The original motion read that the city give city-owned land priority and that the city submit tenders along with private contractors to service private land. The wording was changed from "tender" to "negotiate" after Aid. Vaughan Hembroff suggested tendering by the city might create more problems than exist now. The main reason for bringing up the s u b h e c t was the present method of negotiating servicing costs which allowed developers to make money at the expense of the taxpayers, Aid. Ferguson said. Aid. Ferguson earlier this year suggested the city get out of t h e servicing business entirely but has since modified her approach. During discussions Monday, City Manager Tom Nutting told council the city "now has effective control over the land situation in the city," with no more than 30 acres of developable land belonging to private owners and the rest belonging to the city. (Council briefs page 12.) more office space is the community services department. Community sendees director Bob Bartlett restated his request for council to approve renting office space for his department at the Lethbridge Community College. That request will also remain on the table until the next council meeting. during 1973 to see if it had any effect on the control of dogs. The intention was to discontinue the practice next year. Aid. Bill Kergan suggested if the pound keepr "can't do the job without the $1 bonus, he shouldn't have the job." Aid. Steve Kotch said council could not change the terms of the tenders without calling for new bids. The tender had included the $1 incentive. City Manager Tom Nutting said, "All we can do is ask the contractor if he will accept council's directive." After the vote was taken, Mr. Nutting called the pound keeper and was assured the elimination of the $1 bonus was acceptable and, in fact "preferred" by Mr. Anderson. Efcr the first time this year, the pound keeper will patrol the, city between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily from May 1 to Oct. 31. From Nov. 1 to April 31, the patrol will be between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. [CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAE MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. lower Level PHONE 327-2822 Games with use of the arena restricted to Gaines activities between Feb. 11 and Feb. 22, 1975.

The remaining financing will come in 1974 with $1 million borrowed from the AJVIFC and a projected $400,000 grant from the provincial government.
