Drive S. - Phone 328-7751 School bells ring again on Thursday School starts Thursday for most Lethbridge public and separate school students - and school zones will be in effect again. Teachers at all city schools have been on the job since Tuesday, preparing for the spring semester following the holiday break. Lethbridge Collegiate Institute students, however, started, along with their teachers Tuesday, making up some of the time they lost when their school opened late in the fall due to the new addition not being ready for occupancy. A similar delay - of only one day - has also occurred at the Fteetwood-Bawden Elementary School for the spring semester. Students at the school will not report for classes until Friday morning, since the job of moving from Central and Fleet wood schools, and organizing the large open areas in the school, has not yet been com' pleted. Fleetwood-Bawden is the result of amalgamation of the old Centra], Fleetwood and Susie Bawd en elementary schools into one new school. The Cen tral and Fleetwood schools will be torn down later this year. The new school has one of the largest open-area instruction centres in Canada, the equiva lent of eight full classrooms. School zones with 20 miles per hour speed limits are in ef feet from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 4:30 pm And a full stop is required at a flashing red light installation when the light is operating, even if no pedestrians are in the cross walk. LATE HOURS DEADLY From 9 p.m. to midnight is the most deadly time for drinking drivers. Drivers killed in crashes during these hours are over eight times as likely to have been drinking heavily as not to have been drinking at all.

The two boys here were joined by about 20 more children Tuesday on a coulee near Scenic Drive where the snow was fast, the weather comfortable and the bumps just right for short two-feet-high takeoffs. -Photo by Walter Kerber Indian news media to receive funds Indian News Media, a combination of Kainai News and Blackfoot Radio, will receive $56,634 from a federal supplementary grant of $139,012 for support of native communications in the province. The rest of the money will be used by the Alberta Native Communications Society which operates a radio program on several stations, and a newspaper in northern Alberta. Les Heialy, executive director of Indian News Media said the grant from the office of the secretary of state was necessary for the continuance and expansion of service and staff for the news business.

Blackfoot Radio started with 15 minutes of air time per week. This has been increased to Vh hours per week. The additional programs will cost the firm $50 each. Tenders are to be called as scheduled Feb. 1 for installation of various city services despite the uncertainty concerning the availability of funds, Engineering Director Ted Lawrence said Tuesday he intends to go ahead as planned with tender calls for reservoirs for both the north and west sides and services to the west side, provided city council approves the projects at Monday's meeting. These are included in the first year of the city's 1971-1975 capital budget and were recommended for approval this week by the budget committee. Because of the unusual nature of the recommendation for approval, Mr. Lawrence has devised a flexible plan for calling for tenders. Because of a possible lack of funds (depending on how the remainder of the secondary sewage treatment facilities costs are financed) the recommendation for approval was only to the extent that projects could be covered by borrowing through the Alberta Municipal F i n a n c ing Corporation. This may leave some projects, or portions of them, out in the cold. Mr, Lawrence said that in view of this fact he plans to call tenders for one project that would include both the refeer-voir for the industrial park in north-east Lethbridge and one for the west side. Contractors will also be asked to submit bids on an alternate project in volving only the north side res ervoir, which must be built this year. Contracts for both reservoirs would be awarded if sufficient money is available. If the money situation is tight, only the north-side reservoir would be built The same approach will be applied to the installation of sewers and roadworks west of the river. Tenders will be called for the project as originally planned. This would provide services for Phase One of west-side development, scheduled for completion by the end of September this year. An alternate bid would be made on services to only the eastern portion of Phase One development. This would take in the planned commercial area and a residential subdivision. How much money will be available won't be known for some weeks. A meeting has been arranged with the provincial cabinet Jan. 28 to ask for help in paying for the sewage treatment facilities. Mayor Andy Anderson says the fed-1 eral government may be approached before the meeting with the province. If some form of help is available, the city should be able to go ahead with all projects listed in the capital budget for 1971. If. not, some cuts may Delay announced in sewage meeting A meeting between the city and a committee of the provincial cabinet, originally set for Jan. 13, has been re-scheduled for Jan. 28. Mayor Andy Anderson said Tuesday the meeting to discuss provincial assistance in paying for the city's secondary sewage treatment facilities was delayed because of a conflict with a public hearing in Lethbridge by the parliamentary committee on the constitution in Canada. Mayor Anderson said the change in date could mean a change in the city's approach to the problem of how to finance an extra $1,355,000 still needed for the sewage treatment facilities. He said the city may now approach the federal government before the meeting with the province. There were three possibilities to explore, he said - a loan through Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation, a federal grant or a long-term federal loan at a low rate of interest. He said help from the federal government, if obtained, would be in addition to any that might be provided by the province. Mayor Anderson added that the crux of the problem with finding funds for the projects in Turn Page For the Big News! CAMM'S JANUARY SHOE SALE STARTS THURS., JAN. 7th - OPEN TIL 9 P.M.

Services to the west side are low on the list of priorities and would probably be the first to feel the pinch. Mr. Lawrence said calling tenders Feb. 1 will keep the city on schedule for west-side services by next fall. the first year of the city's 1971-1975 capital budget was obtaining the needed $1,355,000 for secondary sewage treatment. He said he was "quite confident" the money could be borrowed through CMHC, which would leave the city with a deficit of only $183,000 for the 1971 portion of the five-year budget. This, he said, could be handled easily by reserve funds. Loans made through CMHC for the sewage facilities carry a 25 per cent forgiveness clause and would save the city about $225,000. Two-thirds of the amount needed could be borrowed in this way, the rest would be financed through the Alberta Municipal Financing Corporation. As it stands now, the city has projects listed for 1971 totalling $4,347,000, while the borrowing capacity through the AMFC is only $3,261,000. This leaves the city in the position of having to revise its plans for providing water and sewer services to an area west of the river by September of this year if the sewage treatment funds have to be financed entirely through the AMFC. There would be no forgiveness clause on such a loan. ^SPECIALS Prices in effect Thursday, Friday and Saturday Ontyl White Layer Cakes......75c Banana Loaf Cakes......�� 53c 1 Dinner Rolls......... .... dozen 49c > Chocolate Brownies ... 6 ,or39c MARQUIS BAKERY LOCATED IN THE MARQUIS HOTEL BIDC.
