Despite children's apparent higher tolerance of cold, this little mite really was feeling it during a skating session at Henderson Lake Monday. The Herald photographer managed to wheedle the name of Rosana Francis out of her but the only other comment was: "I wanna go home. I'm cold." But cheer up, the mercury is supposed to climb from Monday's high of five degrees above to 35 above Wednesday. It will be warmer skating then.

A Sincere Thank You... For your wonderful acceptance and support during the past year and especially during the past Holiday Season at which time we were favored with near capacity patronage. To one and all from all of us at "ERICKSEN'S" ... Our Sincere Best Wishes for a 1971 full of joy and happiness! Sincerely, SVEN ERICKSEN FAMILY RESTAURANT the rate of about $1,500 worth of water a year since 1963. A total of $10,000 has been spent on repairs since 1967. Tom Nutting, city manager, has suggested that if repairs Calgary lawyer Peter Petra-suk is expected to step down as I president of the provincial Liberal party at its annual convention Jan. 29-31 in Calgary. Mr. Petrasuk will have completed the normal two-year tenure on the job, perhaps the most nebulous position in Alberta politics. The Liberals have been leaderless for about a year now, since Jack Lowery retired after shared-candidate talks with Premier Harry Strom sent the party into a flap. The party saw its share of the popular vote drop in the 1987 election to about 11 per cent from 20 per cent in 1963. At the same time, the Progressive Conservatives and New Democratic Parties doubted or near-doubled their shares. The last three years have not been kind to the party either. All three Liberal seats have gone to the Progressive Conservatives, either through byelections or party switching. The 1969 convention was a study in self-analysis and self-deprecation, neither of which bore fruit. Although Bob Rus- sell of St. Albert, the only Liberal nominated so far for the next election, is apparently fighting hard for the leadership, the party seems wary of setting a leadership convention. Party officials like to drop names of persons reputedly interested in the job, but it still looks to be a case of a party chasing a leader and not a leader' seeking the job. R. G. Armstrong of Calgary, the 1970 convention chairman, said the three-day meeting could be turned into a leadership convention. A report on the leadership is to be given at the convention, and Mr. Montgomery said the controversial nature of the meeting may attract up to 500 delegates. If Lethbridge Liberals are any index, however, those delegates will be attending just to keep their fingers on the party pulse, and not with any def mite plans in mind. Plans for Liberal nominations in the city, and suggestions for possible candidates, are about as difficult to come by as a party leader. New rules on fireworks before council this month are not made the undermining that is causing the leakage may render the pool entirely useless. The pool was built in 1962 at a cost of $195,000. Mr. Nutting told the committee that the $100,000 figure was only an estimate and that in view of the fact that the figure was more than half the original cost he felt the repairs probably would be closer to $50,000. He said no firm estimate could be made on the cost until engineering studies had been done. Alderman Jim Anderson said that if it were going to cost the city $100,000 for repairs, a new pool might be just as economical. Skating rink may be deferred A proposed $1% million multi-purpose auditorium and ice centre on the exhibition grounds may allow the city to defer building a new skating rink in southeast Lethbridge. Allister Pindlay, finance director, told the city's budget committee Monday during discussion of the 1971-1975 capital budget, construction of the $300,000 rink, proposed for 1973, might he put off if the larger facility is built. Tom Nutting, city manager, said a report will be made to city council in a few weeks on the proposal by the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board for a cost-sharing arrangement with the city on the ice centre and auditorium. The city's new fire bylaw will probably come before city council sometime late this month or early February, Tom Nutting, city manager, said Monday. Included in the document is a section pn the sale and use of firecrackers and fireworks, an issue shelved by council last year pending the formulation of the new bylaw. Council in September authorized the city solicitor to prepare a bylaw that would ban the sale or setting off of fireworks in the city. No action was taken, however, when it was pointed out that the new fire bylaw contained provisions covering the situation. Fireworks became an issue at the time following representation to council by Dr. Michael Hanna, whose son had been injured in an accident involving firecrackers. Just what the new regulations on firecrackers will be remain to be seen. The proposed bylaw prohibits the sale or distribution of firecrackers. (Firecrackers and fireworks are treated separately in the bylaw). Section 152 of the Municipal Government Act says municipalities may pass bylaws prohibiting the sale of firecrackers or fireworks to persons under the age of 21. The city's bylaw, as it now stands, would go beyond what is allowed by the provincial act in that it would prohibit all firecracker sales, not just to perrons under 21. John Hammond, city solicitor, said this section of the bylaw may need revision before it becomes law. The bylaw would also prohibit the setting of firecrackers in any part of the city. The regulations are less stringent for fireworks. Their sale is banned only to persons under 21. Those over 21 may hold displays of fireworks on their own land. They may not discharge fireworks on public land, such as streets and parks. Public displays of fireworks, such as during exhibition week, must be licensed by the fire department. The regulations cover safety of spectators and require that a bond or a public liability policy accompany the permit application to cover any injuries or deaths that may result. Quiet eve for police New Year's eve in Lethbridge was very quiet as far as the city police department was concerned. Police report only three persons were lodged in police cells during the night on drunk charges'and one of them was detained at his own request. They were all given breakfast in the morning and released under section 87a of the Liquor Control Act which permits the police to release a prisoner in the morning after he has sobered up. No interest in Waterton on Banff-Jasper cost study A Waterton Lakes Chamber of Commerce official said today there is no interest in Waterton in the decision. to study the cost of establishing autonomy for Banff and Jasper. The official said Waterton townsite is not interested in autonomy. He said there is only a small amount of real estate in the park, not enough development to support a town. The proposed study is to be launched by the Alberta municipal affairs department early AKR0YD R. MI\IW I V LTD. PLUMBING-HEATING and GASFITTING 2634 21st Ave. S.
