Minor adjustments in the budget were recom mended by the committee o: the whole last week. More modifications shoulc come out of tonight's meeting jut council is not expected to complete discussion or approve the budget before adjournment. Council could, however, decide on the site for the new library tonight. A letter from the .library board1 is on the agenda with the attached resolution that "the Central School site is the only acceptable site for the new library building." That resolution came out bl a library board meeting last week which followed council's rejection of the location. At the last council meeting, the alderman voted to investigate the possibility of using the ixjjting library location, at Gait Gardens, for the new facility. City solicitor John Hammond will report on the legal ramifications involved there.

The best remedy for the flu are liquids, stay in bed, "and take an asipirin or aspirin-type of medication. The actual virus usually lasts for about three or four days but full recovery takes as long as a week. Dr. Byrne concluded that many people think they have the flue while it is actually a similar virus.

Rural county school students who returned to work Monda following the Christmas breal tuned into tteir favorite televi sion channels this morning Saul Moscovich retires Saul Moscovich Lethbridge lawyer for the last 40 years has announced bis retiremen from practice effective Decem- ber 31. He is the thin] of the seven children of the late Mr. and Mrs. Morris Mosoovich of Leth- bridge all seven being active hi professions. The others are his oldes brother, Max, Lelhbridg lawyer; Jack and Barney, lo- cal medical doctors in Vancou ver; Joe and Sam, dentists in Lethbridge and Vancouver re- spectively; and Mrs. Betty Gil man, social worker in Los An geles. The family came from Man- Chester, England, to Lethbridg in 1909. The four youngest children were born here. Mr. Moscovich was a Lethbridge retail mer chant until his death in 1939 Saul was educated in Leth- bridge and the University of Alberta. In 1931 he joined his In-other in law practice in Leth- bridge. His wife Mary is also a Uni versify of Alberta law grad- uate. They have two children, Mrs Shirley Dunn, a social worker in Calgary and a son, Michael, practicing law in Vancouver. With the retirement of Saul he name of the law firm is changed to Moscovich, Spanos and Matisz. Bateman resigns from Municipal Hospital Board The almost defunct Leth-1 or tlia Alberta Hospital Ser bridge Municipal Hospital Board has one last problem it must overcome before it is ab- sorbed into a newly-formed amalgamated hospital board. Board member Richard tendered his resigna- tion from the four member yesterday. Mr, Bateman resigned be- cause of the wording o[ the Al- jorta Hospilals Act winch states that neither he nor his bo an employee of the Wspilal of which he is a board member. His wife is currently employ- ed by LM1I and has been since June of IS70. Rather than having his wife resign her position, Mr. Bale- man decided to resign from Iho bonrd to dear the situa- tion. His resignation may leave he tourd with a minor legal situation. Does the City of Lethbridgo vices Commission in Edmonton appoint a replacement board member who will also sit on the new amalgamated board? Or is Mr. Baleman's runner- up during the recent civic elec- tion, defeated incumbant board member Stan Verlinden, to fill Uic vacancy because Mr. Bate- man had originally been an in- eligible candidate? Mr. Verlindcn is currently a Lethbridge Auxiliary hospital board member and will also become a member of Iho new f i v c-man amalgamated board when it is finally formed. According to election return- ing officer John Gcrla, the city will probably have to appoint a new bonrd member. Because Mr. Bnlcman was elected to the position by the public, his position was legal until the Hospital act dis- crepancy was noted and acted upon, Mr. Gcrla snid. Charka Virtue, a Lethbridge AHSC member, reiterated Mr Gerla's feelings. However, neither party, when interviewed, had a copy of the act and was not completely certain whether a new board member would have to be ap- pointed or whether Mr. Vcrlin- den automatically occupied the vacant position.

However, most school boards in southern Alberta have de- cided to stay open for those students who could make it to the classrooms. Those students who attend classes are not expected to have particularly difficult in- struction day, as sime teachers are known to live in rural areas. City of Lethbridge schooto will not open until Monday un- der their divided school year schedule. LCC job training still has vacancies The Lethbridge Community College appears to be out- distancing other educational' in- stitutions in recruiting students to the provincial government's new job training program. P r o v i n c e-wide figures re- leased by the deparment of advanced education show al- most 2500 Albertans have reg- istered for specialized job training. The program was geared to accommodate 4000. While the provincial figures are lagging, the registration fa- cilities at LCC have almost been taxed to the limit since the program was announced. Initial projections placed the number who would register at the Lethbridge campus at 400. Tills figure was described as "quite optimistic" several weeks ago. To date 460 students have registered in the program. Jim MacNeil, director of stu- dent services at LCC, said his initial estimate of 400 has been more than borne out "and we could get as many as 600 be- fore ft is all over." White the enrolment figures are above expectations, several courses have had to be can- celled because of a lack of in- terest hospitality personnel, laboratory aide, homemaking, irrigation, trailer manufactur- ing, commercial vehicle driv- ing, service station attendant and custodial fraining. Several other courses are in danger of being withdrawn un- less more students register. These include ward aide, where only seven students have registered. The college has been guaranteed 30 jobs for those who take the course. Other courses which are in doubt are: registered nurses' refresher program, day care aide, sewing, farm machinery, artificial insemination, auto body, graphic arts, floor cover- ing, appliance service, radio technician, introduction to me- chanical trades, business equip- ment servicing and library aide. Mr. MacNeil said only handful more students an needed in most of these areas to ensure teat they will be offered. Two courses are already fill- ed to capacity welding with 35 students and youth services worker, with 38 students regis- ered. Students taking part in Priority Employment Program will receive full tuition plus i training allowance from the provincial government. Several courses have already started but others will be slot, ing every Monday until early February. School holidays ending The Christmas holidays hart already ended for gome) flu- dents in Lethbridge while oth- ers are in the final preparation stages for the return to classes. The Lethbridge Commun- ity College resumed classes Monday after a two-week break. Students at the University of Lethbridge will be back to classes Jan. 12 while students in the city's two school sys- tems return to work Jan. 10.
