R SNOW HAS MORE THAN ONE MEANING � To most people snow is what wo 'would like to see gently falling at Christmastime or being rolled merrily into a snowman. However, snow has other slang meanings that you may not be familiar with. One type of snow that can bo controlled is falling dandruff. One of the many medicated shampoos that we carry can greatly help. Another kind of snow that is more sinister is "heroin." We hope that this generation of children will only want to know about that soft wintertime Santa Claus snow.

When the Coltman Brothers retired shortly after 1910, the building and business were bought out by Campbell Brothers and Wilson, a Manitoba-based food wholesaler, who went into partnership in Alberta with John Home, of Lethbridge. The firm was called Campbell, Wilson and Horne in Alberta, and had branches in both Calgary and Edmonton. Eventually John Home's son took the company over, and both Campbell and Wilson retired. The company was eventually sold to other interests, becoming Horne and Pitfield Foods Limited. � Horne and Pitfield was again sold 11 years ago, and has been a wholesale supplier for small stores and for the IGA food chain stores in Lethbridge and district. The cause of, the fire is as yet undetermined, but fire department officials are investigating. One theory offered unofficially was that it started in the building's coffee room.

The preliminary budget which was distributed to aldermen about a month ago, lists total requirements of $4,347,000 for next year and a borrowing capacity of $3,261,000. The first figure includes $1,355,000 that still must be found to pay for the city's secondary sewage treatment plant, financing arrangements for which has not yet been worked out. Included in the preliminary budget is $100,000 for repairs to Henderson Lake pool in 1971 and $900,000 for a public library in 1972.

The boom in 1967 was preceded by a drop to only $4.3 million in 1966.

Decorations to stay up month longer City-owned Christmas street decorations will stay up more than a month longer than usual this year, a city hall official said Monday. The decorations, which normally come down after the Ukrainian Christmas, will be left up until the new city stores complex opens the end of February.
