Drive Ph. 328-7751 Crematorium gets go-ahead By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer An appeal against Leth-bridge's first crematorium was dismissed Thursday by the Development Appeal Board. To be built in Mountain View Cemetery by Foothills Crema- Library decision soon Mayor Andy Anderson said Thursday a decision should be made by city council within two months on the size, location and time of construction for a new public library in Lethbridge. He added that the library is an amenity that warrants a high priority in the city's plans at this time, but no decision can be made until all phases of the project have been investigated. The cost of such a facility has been estimated at $900,-000 and is listed in the city's budget for 1972, although this portion of the budget has not received council approval. Conditions good at West Castle Ski conditions at West Castle Ski Resort are reported very good for the weekend. There are five inches of new snow on 36 inches of packed snow, making slope conditions powdery. The road is plowed to West Castle. Number three lift is closed for repairs.

Salei 328-4539 Car Lot 32R-4356 torium Ltd,, the facility was approved in December by the Municipal Planning Commission. An appeal was lodged by residents east of the cemetery who objected to it on the grounds it would be the source of possible air pollution and was not suitable for a residential area. R. F. P. Bowman told the hearing last night the development would tend to lower property values along 13th St. He said it was very difficult to get mortgage money for houses to be built on the east end of South Parkside Drive because of the proximity to a meat processing firm and noted the sim ilarity between that and the crematorium. "They are both concerned with the disposal of animal products," he said. "I would suggest the presence of this crematorium would result in extensive appeals by residents along 13th St. for reductions of assessment because of economic obsolescence." He estimated a $1,900 loss in taxes for the city if the property owners were allowed such a reduction in assessment because of the development. Developer Gerald Martin said there was a guarantee in the lease with the city, which owns the cemetery land, that there would be no smoke or odor from the operation. A letter from the firm that will supply the equipment for the crematorium was read in which it was stated that tests in Calgary at a similar operation hat' shown there were no problems with smoke or odor. Brwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Plan ning Commission, said the commission had checked with the Calgary firm before recommending to Mr. Martin that the crematorium be built in the cemetery. He added that the recommendation had been made because it was felt that the facility was in keeping with the nature of the cemetery. Mr. Bowman, along with two other persons appealing the case, asked that the crematorium be moved as far west as possible. Mr. Martin said the location was as far west as it could go and that with screening by trees the crematorium would not be objectionable in any way. It two or three years people will simply accept it as a normal part of the city, he said. Approved The Development Appeal Board Thursday voted to allow Fiorino Homes Ltd. of Lethbridge to build a six-suite apartment at 2711 Scenic Drive as originally requested. The Municipal Planing Commission had earlier disallowed the request, cutting the size down to only four suites. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 First big honey export being made to Japanese HONEY TO JAPAN - Three hundred tons of honey contained in 650-pound barrels are loaded into a metal rail carrier before beginning its trip to Japan. The $100,000 honey shipment marks Alberta's first !*ajor export of the product. The honey was collected by 10 southern Alberta commercial honey producers, and will be used in Japan's honey processing industry. Sidewalk residents' snow removal responsibility If you see a funny - looking miniature snowplow clearing off the sidewalks in front of your house, its only the city, not a hallucination. The Lethbridge engineering department has four of the small, one - man plows, as well as two small tractors with snow-plows mounted in front. According to city bylaws, says Ted Lawrence, city engineering director, residents are required to keep the sidewalks in front of their homes clear of snow throughout the winter. And con-t r a r y to common belief, this regulation is in effect no matter how deep the snow falls. However, as a courtesy and in answer to peoples' general laziness, the city will plow off sidewalks on a priority basis when more than four inches of snow gathers. .

TO 2 P.M. sen s PHONE 328-7756 for RESERVATIONS The priority scale starts with the high - pedestrian - use sidewalks including those leading to the downtown and to shopping centres, and those near schools, hospitals and churches. If the snow hasn't melted by the time these are completed the crews will start clearing sidewalks in the residential districts, again on a complicated priority basis. Two of the one - man plows spend all of their time in North Lethbridge and the other two in South Lethbridge, with the modified tractors used only in heavy snow situations. Downtown businessmen are required by the city bylaw to keep the sidewalks in front of their stores clean, and except in the most extreme situations, city crews will not clean them. Mr. Lawrence said the bylaw concerning residential sidewalks has been on the books for more than 20 years, "and it's pretty difticult to enforce." Board award under study An arbitration board award has been handed down by chairman Dr. Ken Pugh of Edmonton in the contract dispute between the city and the police department. Contents of the award will be made public only after they have been presented to the Lethbridge Police Commission and the Lethbridge Police As-socation. Meetings of both bodies are scheduled for this evening. The board decision, binding on both sides, settles a dispute that went on through last year, during which the policemen worked without a 1970 contract. He said he had heard of no legal actions or complaints having ever been made concerning a lack of snow removal action by a resident, "although it could still happen." He said the city frowns on use of salt to keep sidewalks clean, and recommends against it for tha walkways into a person's home. "Salt attacks and corrodes cement, and takes the surface off it," he said. "It reduces the life of your sidewalks and makes them look pietty worn nut." He said sanding would work almost as well, and does no harm. Mr. Lawrence said sidewalk snow removal amounts to only a small portion of total street cleaning operat ions the city must undertake. No separate account is kept, however, for the sidewalk cleaning. "The biggest expense in that area is the equipment," he said, "'flie plows can be used only during the winter - a relatively small portion of the year, and only a few times during even that rime. "We attach brooms to them in the spring to sweep away the sand, and use them on the median on divided roadways in the city, but other than that, they're just stored." By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Agricultural Writer If 10 southern Alberta beekeepers have their way, 300 tons of honey now in transit to Japan will be only the first step in establishing Canada as a major world exporter of the product. The honey, packed in 650-pound barrels, will arrive by rail in Vancouver, and from there by boat to Japan where it will be used in the honey processing industry. One of the driving forces behind the $150,000 honey sale was Jack Edmunds, sales representative for Prairie Honey Co-op, the organization formed recently by western honey producers. Mr. Edmunds, a past employee of the Alberta department of agriculture, said he had recognized the potential of the honey industry for many years, but made little progress in marketing the product until last fall. A Japanese trading firm, with offices in Canada, contacted Mr. Edmunds asking him for assistance in organizing a bulk honey shipment to Japan. In addition to negotiations carried out by Mr. Edmunds, Harry Hargrave, Alberta's marketing commissioner, did a study on the potential of Canadian honey in Japan. Mr. Hargrave returned recently from a trade mission in Japan, and reported the market situation is favorable. "Canada has never before been an exporter of honey," said Mr. Edmunds, "but was able to get her foot in the door this year when other major ex porting countries experienced bad production years." He believes Canada can maintain a slice of the world honey market despite high production costs, by promising continuity of supply and high quality honey. The 10 southern Alberta pro-, ducers: Alan Graham, Coal-dale; John Willms, Lethbridge; Bill Avramenko, Nanton; Ted and Eugene Bastura, Taber; Geoff and Dale Philpott, Brooks; Mike Pietrasciwicz, P i n cher Creek; Doug McCann, Coaldale and Ed Willms of Scandia, should net about $100,000 from the 300-ton sale according to Mr. Edmunds. Another group of northern Alberta honey producers has completed negotiations for 200 - ton sale through the same trade firm. Mr. Edmunds foresees honey consumption in Japan to be on the rise, as the people adopt different diets and eating hah its. He also believes other uses for honey are in the near future, as people become more aware of pollution and food additives. "Honey is one of the few foods with nothing added and nothing taken out," said Mr. Edmunds, He warns people who plan to enter the commercial honey business because it appears to be easy money, to study business and marketing aspects thoroughly. "The commercial honey bus-mess is not for retired people looking for a supplementary income. It is a business which if it is to be successful requires good management and plenty of hard work." The honey shipped from Lethbridge is scheduled to arrive in Japan in early February. End is forecast to cold weather The weatherman has climbed out on a limb. He firmly maintains the bitterly-cold weather of the past few days is coming to an end. A Chinook which is slated to arrive in southern Alberta this evening, will break a cold snap which held temperatures below the zero mark for six consecutive days. The Pacific warm front which, at last, gained a hold on the massive arctic cold front has pushed eastward and will herald its arrival with gusty westerly winds. The high and low temperatures today should be very close together, with the weather man estimating the mercury will likely hold very steady around 30 above. Winds will be from the west 20 mph and gusting. The all time record high and low temperatures for Jan. 15 are 56.7 above set in 1942 and 41.3 below set in 1950. , Thursday's high and low temperatures were 15 below and 31 below respectively. The arrival of a Chinook-type weather system is not without its problems though, as all schools serving a primarily rural population in southern Alberta were closed today because of heavily-drifting snow. The Coutts, Wrentham, New Dayton, Grassy Lake and all County of Forty Mile schools were closed, no school buses were running into Warner, although the Warner schools remained open and there was no high school bus from the Wrentham area into the Raymond High School. Schools in the larger centres all remained open. The warm air mass ap parently moved into southern Alberta early Friday morning, with pilots landing at Lethbridge reporting temperatures of 21 above at 4,500 feet. Water ton reported a temperature of 27 above at 9 this morning. Meanwhile, near blizzard conditions which have struck Edmonton, are not expected to extend down into the southern part of the province. Edmonton is expected to receive five inches of snow during the day, accompanied by strong winds. With temperatures hovering at 25 below, wind chill is calculated at near 65 below. Temperatures there ar.e expected to warm to about zero overnight. Bay on unfit for trial Joan Agnes Bayon, 24, o f Lethbridge, has been sent to the Alberta Hospital at Oliver, after being judged unfit to stand trial on two charges of non-capital murder, A lieutenant-governor's warrant was issued Wednesday to send Miss Bayon to the mental hospital. She can be held as long as is necessary to make a recovery or be judged competent to stand trial. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB] tower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO.
