IN THE OLD TRADITION OF WESTERN HOSPITALITY Ice-fishing plans set The skating surface at Henderson Lake was extended Thursday as city crews finish- ed clearing snow to the east of the former skating area which has been used since mid- December. The ice surface has been ex- tended about 770 feet and is about 120 feet wide at its widest point. The area available for skating has been roped off and on weekends a com- missionaire will supervise the area when large crowds are expected. The city parks and recrea- tion department will keep the fenced area clear of snow as weather permits and the lake ice has been tested to be sure it is safe to hold equipment. Anglers looking for some winter ice fishing will be able to fish at Henderson Lake this weekend, Gene Scully, local chairman of the Alberta Fish and Game Association says. Volunteers from the association were to rope off an area today for ice fishing. The area is to be located in the centre of the lake. About 20 holes will be drilled. Ice fishing was permitted in Henderson Lake last year for the first time when the fish and wildlife division of the department of lands and forests worked through the fish and game association to have it permitted. The fish and game associa- tion has been waiting for the lake to be declared safe for fishing and now has the go ahead to begin work. Ice fishing last year con- tinued until the end of February when the ice became unsafe. Bottle depot has no payment problem The manager of a local bottle-return depot has no problems receiving payments for bottles from the provincial government. However, in Edmonton one bottle depot manager says he will be forced to close down his operation unless he receives payment from the Lang to address convention of Palliser wheat growers The federal minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, Otto Lang, will conclude the opening day business of the 1974 Palliser Prof, will go to York meet A University of Lethbridge education professor will be among 30 participants attending a national conference on early childhood services which begins Monday at York University, Toronto. Stanley Perkins, recently elected vice-president of the Alberta Teacher's Association special education council, will be chairman of summations at the five-day conference. The conference is sponsored by York University, Humber College, the National Institute of Mental Retardation and the Council of Exceptional Children. Dr. Perkins has also been appointed chairman of a two- day national conference on competency-based teacher education, to be held in Oc- tober in Ottawa. The meeting is sponsored by the Council of Exceptional Children. Wheat Growers Association convention next Friday. Mr. Lang will deliver the after dinner address at the Regina convention ending a day of discussions on subjects including Canada's potential in world markets, the "ironies" of the Canadian grain marketing system, com- petition in grain handling. The meeting ends Jan. 12 after sessions on the role of the Canada Grains Council, the role of the Western Tran- sportation Advisory Council and an address by Eldon Woolliams, member of Parlia- ment for Calgary North. provincial government more quickly. Dave Green, manager of Green's Pop Shop in Lethbridge, says he has no trouble at all receiving payments from the provincial government. "They're paying pretty he says. Whenever he gets crowded with bottles he ships them out and the provincial govern- ment pays the shipping costs, Mr. Green says. The shipping systems in Calgary and Edmonton are different than in Lethbridge. Depot managers in the larger cities have to wait for a truck to pick up bottles. At Green's, the bottles are shipped out as soon as there is a shortage of space. Gordon McPherson of Ed- monton says delays in remov- ing bottles often leave him without room for new returns. "Not only do I have no room for the bottles as they come in, I won't get paid for them until the trucks get around to picking them up." After bottles and cans are picked up, it sometimes takes up to 10 days to receive pay- ment for bottles, said Mr. McPherson. By MURDOCH MACLEOD Henld Sttff Writer The comet Kohoutek may or may not develop into one of the brightest objects in the sky in 1974. Earl Milton, chairman of the University of Lethbridge physics department, said Thursday he is not sure if the comet will brighten con- siderably on its trip away from the sun this month. Until there is a local sighting, said Dr. Milton, he cannot say for sure. "I looked last night and couldn't find it, which means it couldn't be very bright because the sky was reasonably he said. When Kohoutek was dis- covered, it was predicted that it would be the comet of the century. But it disappointed astronomers by being only one-fiftieth as bright as predicted before it rounded the sun Dec. 28. Dr. Milton said the comet should be in the southwestern sky after sunset, and lists 6 p.m. positions for an observer in Lethbridge. An observer east of the city would find the comet in the positions given about one minute earlier for every 10 miles east, and an observer to the west the same amount of time later, he said. The 6 p.m., positions are therefore p.m. positions for someone in Taber and p.m. positions for someone in Fort Macleod. Dr. Milton said the1 comet should be two degrees above the horizon 15 degrees west of southwest Thursday, four degrees above the horizon 14 degrees west of southwest Friday and 5.5 degrees above the horizon 13 degrees west of southwest Saturday. Kohoutek's movement in the sky is about one degree south and 1.5 degrees higher each night, he said. Scientists may learn more about the composition and origin of comets from Kohoutek, said Dr, Milton. There is currently a controversy between Euro- pean and American astronomers about the com- position of the wanderers, he said. The Europeans support the theory that comets are balls of gas but the Americans support the theory that they have icy nuclei the dirty snowball theory. Kohoutek may also provide clues as to whether comets are leftovers from the crea- tion of the solar system, he added. Four spacecraft are observ- ing the comet, the manned Skylab, and the unmanned Mariner 10, the Oribiting Astronomical Observatory and the Orbiting Solar Obser- vatory.

LOST WALLET While travelling by plane between Lethbridge and Calgary, brown in color, good sum of money, drivers license and other I.D. REWARD PHONE A trip to Japan by city economic development direc- tor Dennis O'Connell and Aid. Cam Barnes has been postpon- ed from this month until February or later. The postponement was made at the suggestion of the provincial government's Alberta Export Agency for several reasons. One is that Japanese trade missions are coming to Alberta and to the city at the end of January, and it was felt it would be more opportune for city officials to meet with them first. A second reason is that a new system of import quotas and tariffs is being introduced in Japan at the end of the month, while another reason, See the New 1974 VOLKSWAGEN BEAT THE HIGH COST OF QA8 With Security Blanket mile or 24 month warranty v par month Now on Display In Our Showroom RAEWOOD MOTORS LTD. VOLKSWAGEN PORSCHE AUDI according to a spokesman for the Alberta Export Agency, is that the major companies the city officials are interested in seeing, have their corporate directorship meetings in January. According to statements made by Aid. Barnes at a council meeting in November, the trip could result in two large industrial plants coming to the city. Export of Alberta beef and other agricultural products to Japan through Lethbridge is also apparently to be dis- cussed. When the matter was first brought into the open it provoked a debate on in- dustrial growth in the city and on foreign investment here. Objections outlined for hotel developer Grain tested for licensing The Canadian wheat board says five unlicenced grain varieties currently are being tested to see if they have the' qualities grain buyers are seeking. The tests, which involve feeding and food processing trials, are designed to deter- mine whether there is a market for the grains before they are licensed for Canadian production. The varieties un- der test include a white utility wheat, a purple utility wheat, hard red spring wheat, a feed barley and a malting barley. The trials are being con- ducted by federal government research stations, universities and feed companies. A letter was to be sent today to Edmonton Alderman Ed Leger outlining objections to the siting of his proposed million convention hotel in southeast Lethbridge. The letter contains com- ments from the Oldman River Regional Planning Commis- sion and city department directors and is said to be generally unfavorable to the proposal. City council has tabled Mr. Leger's request to'purchase city land adjacent to property he already owns just off the Coutts Highway at about 36th Street and 24th Avenue S. and he is to be given the opportuni- ty to appear before council again to rebut the arguments of the planners and directors. Mr. Leger told council last month the addition of the city- owned land to his property would give him a five-acre site for the ISO-room hotel which he says would alleviate the lack of convention facilities here. Man remanded An 18-year-old Lethbridge man appeared in provincial court Thursday on a charge of carrying a weapon "for pur- poses dangerous to public peace." Gerald Francis Findlay, 711 4th St. S., was remanded to Alberta Hospital Ponoka for 30 days observation. Findlay appeared after police arrested a man Wednesday night who was carrying a .22 calibre rifle, a large amount of ammunition and two knives. The planners have said the site would have no access from the 24th Avenue freeway proposed in long-range tran- sportation plans for the city, and thus is an unsuitable location. They add that if the freeway should be relocated to the south, the site would then be isolated in an area that is primarily residential and again would be unsuitable Parade meet is Monday A public meeting to discuss the possible elimination of the parade from the annual Lethbridge Whoop-Up Days summer celebration will be held Monday. The meeting, scheduled for p.m., will be held down- stairs at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. It is being organized by the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce's civic affairs committee in co- operation with the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association.
