Three young representatives of Endeavour Enter-' prises, a firm set up under the city's Junior Achievement pro-1 gram, appeared before city council Monday to express their appreciation of the help given them by the city. Council last fall voted to let the young people in the program, four companies in all, use the old city hall annex as a base of operations. President Audrey Robinson, after concluding the g r o u p's brief presentation, gave each member of council a sample of the firm's product -an "executive toy" called a "get nowhere." A true businesswoman, she did not fail to mention that persons wanting to buy one could phone the company any Wednesday night at 328-6811. Campground fees hiked Persons using Henderson Lake campground next summer will pay more for the privilege. City council Monday approved a new fee schedule of $3 for serviced trailer stalls, $2 for unserviced campsites and SI for non-resident sewage clumping. The fees had been $2, $1 and irrespectively. Revenue under the new rates will be an estimated $11,-500. compared with less than Sy.OOO last year. The only opposition to the fee hike came from Alderman C. W. Chichester, who said the increase was not warranted. He s?id the campground attracted visitors who spent large sums of money in the city and he would like to see the fees dropped entirely. $600 grant The City of Lethbridge will contribute $600 toward a dinner to be held as part of an Agriculture Institute of Canada convention in the city in July. City council Monday voted to support the convention, which is expected to attract about 600 delegates. The theme of the convention will be Water and Tomorrow's Agriculture.

Ph. 327-5454 AFTERMATH OF TRUCK-TRAIN COLLISION - A 21-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma man, Larry Alan Hellard, escaped serious injury Monday evening when the semi-trailer truck he was driving was in collision with a CPR freight train on the eastern outskirts of Fort Macleod. Chester Arthur Hellard, his father and a passenger in the truck, received a broken leg in the accident. Both are in hospital in Fort Macleod. RCMP said the 1967 semi-trailer was demolished. No indication of damage to the train or the truck's cargo, two oil-pumper units, was given. It was snowing at the time of the accident. Man hurt at fire A 27 - year - old Lethbridge man, Derek Koch, was injured Monday afternoon when he fell through the ceiling of the new Dunlop Ford Ltd. premises on Mayor Magrath Drive and 16th Ave., attempting to put out a fire. He was taken to St. Michael's Hospital, treated for a fractured ankle and released. Fire officials said a plumber was cutting pipe in the ceiling of the building just above the offices when the insulation caught fire. Ninety - eight per cent of the damage was apparently done when the workman fell through the ceiling, Fire Chief Wilf Russell said.

Vmmir 6U 3ri| Ay# $ lMhbrWge CALL 327-3555 FOX FREE HOME DE1IVERY Cold here awhile By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer The 1971 portion of the city's five-year capital budget was approved by city council Monday. Recommended for approval last Monday by the budget committee, which is made up of all members of council, the budget lists capital expenditures of $4,347,000. Included is $100,000 for repairs to Henderson Lake pool, an item given top priority by the budget committee in view of the fact the pool may soon become useless if undermining is not stopped. Another "must" item for this year is a reservoir and feeder main to service the industrial park area, costing $780,000. This leaves $lMi million worth of sewers, watermains, roadworks and a reservoir for the city's west side low on the list and approved only to the extent that money is available. The city's borrowing capacity through the Alberta Municioal Financing Corporation is $3,-361,000 - a cause for some concern that there may not be enough money to install services for all of Phase One of west side development by next fall as planned. Just how the situation will be resolved won't be determined until arrangements are made for financing $1,355,000 still needed to pay for the city'* secondary sewage treatment facilities. A meeting with the provincial cabinet to discuss the matter has been set for Jan. 28. In the meantime Engineering Director Ted Lawrence has said he intends to go ahead with plans to call tenders on west side development projects Feb. 1, provided the budget was approved by council. The extent of services supplied will depend on the amount of money available. The tenders have been set up to allow flexibility and only partial services will be installed by next fall if funds are limited. Deleted from the budget as originally proposed was $50,000 for the purchase of two buses for the transit department. This item will be moved to the department's operating budget. Council also accepted a recommendation from the finance director that $130,000 allocated in 1970 for a new fire hall on the west side be used for the acquisition of land for a new central fire hall. There is $300,000 listed in the budget for a new central hall in 1972. The present one was built in 1890. Housing control lightened There is no let-up foreseen in i the cold weather for the next two days, as the frigid arctic air mass which lies over all of Alberta retreats very slowly eastward. Some good news may be in the offing for the weekend though, as a warm Pacific low pressure area slowly builds into southern Alberta. Winds will increase prior to the arrival of the system, however, to southeasterly at 15 m.p.h. With daytime highs still expected to be near 20 below, the wind chill factor will be about 60 degrees below zero. Patchy cloud and occasional snow will continue to characterize the weather scene. In the past 24 hours, .02 of an inch of snow has fallen on Lethbridge. Today's high and low temperatures were expected to be 20 below and 35 below respec tively. Monday's high and low temperatures were 19 below and 24 below. The record high and low temperatures for Jan. 12 are 62 5 degrees above zero set in 1902 and 45.2 degrees below zero set in 1911, a temperature spread of 107.7 degrees. Two protest burning ban Two letters protesting the proposed banning of burning barrels have been received by city council. The letters are in addition to one received two weeks ago. One, from the Lethbridge House b u i 1 d e r s' Association, asked that contractors be allowed to burn excess materials such as paper on construction sites. The other, from a private citizen, calls the banning a "short-sighted and unnecessary step." Council is to consider the new fire bylaw containing the ban on open fires sometimes next month. University population grows At least 170 new students registered Monday for the University of Lethbridge spring semester, and more were expected today. Today also was registration day for returning students, who attended the U of L last year. Only about 100 new students bad been expected by university officials. With the new figure, enrolment could reach 1,000 by the time classes start Wednesday morning.

Changes in the zoning bylaw relating to the quality and esthetics of residential housing were approved by city council Monday. Proposed by the Municipal Planning Commission, the changes provide for stricter control on the quality of apartment buildings, require adequate storage space in residential buildings and give the commission greater control over esthetic quality. The zoning bylaw already contains a section giving the MPC the right to refuse an application if it is felt to be in compatible with the surround ing area. The revisions allow the commission to look at all aspects of design rather than just the exterior and to con sider the location of the project. There was some spirited de-Date on whether anyone on the commission or the Development Appeal Board had the necessary training and qualifications to make dependable and consistent judgments of this type. Alderman Jim Anderson said it was necessary to provide some mechanism whereby the commission could guarantee some kind of reasonably standard judgment. Aid. C. W. Chichester said he had long argued that esthetic considerations were a matter of personal taste and that the �only result of the changes would be imposing additional costs on developers and the slowing down of construction. Both City Manager Tom Nutting and Aid. Steve Kotch said the bylaw changes were intended only as guidelines to prevent such things as long rows of identical houses developing in city suburbs. Council also approved an addition to the zoning bylaw that provides similar controls on factory fabricated modular housing units. These are to be compatible with the surrounding area, but are not to be developed in large tracts of Identical units. City tables plan for campground Plans for a trailer and tent-1 ting campground north of Indian Battle Park were tabled by city council Monday pending receipt of a consultant's final version of a survey of recreation in the river valley. Allan Collins of Lethbridge presented plans for a facility that would handle 100 trailers and 50 tents. Included were recreation facilities and a main administration building. Mr. Collins said the campground would operate under a franchise arrangement with KOA campgrounds, an American firm now expanding into other countries. The firm would serve a useful publicity function for the campground and the city, he said. The proposed site contains about 30 acres and is separated from the CP Rail high-level bridge by another 50-acre parcel, Mr. Collins said. In reply to a question from Alderman Jim Anderson, Mr. Collins said the site was the best in the city and could be developed quite easily without removing any trees. R. AKR0YD no. PLUMBING-HEATING and GASFITTING 2634 21 it Ave. S. For New Installations and Alterations Phone 328-2106 FREE ESTIMATES Building time limit is extended by city berta campus offering se-mesterized courses, which are all the equivalent of half-classes at other universities. This has led to some dis agreement between the university and the Alberta universi ties commission over govern ment operating grants, which are based on enrolment at Dec - before the U of L reaches its peak population. This year some university officials expect a higher operating grant, both because of this factor and because of recognition of the increased difficulties of operating a small and relatively new campus. Today was also set as orientation day for new university students, with welcoming addresses, campus tours and a coffee house in the Catacombs tonight, featuring the Point of Interest and other talent. City council Monday accepted a recommendation from the land sales committee that Marathon Realty Company Ltd. be allowed an extension to July 1, 1971, on the building commitment on the old Hull Block property. The city's option to buy back the land from Marathon will also be set back to that date. The city's agreement called for the firm to commence building valued at not less than $1 million by Jan. 15 this year. Included in the recommendation from the land sales committee was a request that Marathon give a complete report on the progress of development on the site. Alderman C. W. Chichester asked that the report be made immediately. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said the firm was under no obligation to submit a report and could move at its own speed on the development. He added that it appeared that this is what was happening. The Hull Block land and the former Stern Estate comprise the site of a proposed $3 million hotel to be owned and operated by Wales Hotel Holdings Ltd. of Lethbridge. Wales has leased the Marathon-owned portion. PRIME SPACE FOR RENT DOWNTOWN - NEXT TO POST OFFICE PROFESSIONAL BLDG. # 4500 Sq. Ft. - Main Floor # 6000 Sq.

Qty supports YW project City council Monday voted $1,500 to support a joint city-YWCA ladies recreation program. Several aldermen questioned the money being approved at this time of year, feeling that it should be delayed until similar requests are considered at budget time. Aid. Jim Anderson told council it was necessary to approve the expenditure now as the program had been set up and was ready to go into operation. It was, he said, a winter program that was in need of support right now only because of the peculiarity of timing.
