The Mas put fonvard by Morley McGill who felt the 1 chamber spends too much time being concerned with provincial matters, such as fish-tog and not enough time with local problems. He suggested, for example, the chamber should be more concerned Tilth such things as downtown the dry's groirti, the city's indus- trial growth, airport facilities, city council's decisions, city council's attitude toward the chamber, winter games, pro- vincial matters affecting Ihe city sy.h as the City Packers odor issue and store hours. His suggestions opened an old about city council-cham- ber relations and discussion was beavy. Art Batty took Mr. McGill's lead and said he was concerned with the delay in Leth- bridge development, that there ivas a Jot of city capital lying there that was costing the'tax- pavers mo-ey. The dry would not reply to a 1 chamber request for information on the airport facilities prob- lem, he said. That particular problem Is j one that is going to cost more ia ta-Tes. The chamber snouM be more informed by Lbe city. he said. Mr. McGill suggested the chamber "should "strongly in- j form council by letter and dele- gation" of tie chamber's coo- Ossie Stubbs suggested the pa'i of the faUing-Mit.

In another move, promoted by Teny Bland, the chamber de- this July, during the Stampede parade, and does not plan on visiting the Moimties' first fort in the West. Mr. Bland said he was "horri- fied" to hear of the Queen's plans and tliat Fort Macleod cided to take all steps possible j was going to be left out during to have the Qwen change her the centennial. It wouldn't mat-: itinerary when she comes to Al- ter if the Queen couldn't make fena so she can visit Fort i it to Lethbridge, he said, but. i! would be a crime Is she couldn't soend even an hour ia Fort He urged the chamber and the individuals lo make repre- sentation to all governments, MLAs. MPs. the premier, the prime minister, opposition numbers and other groups, to urge a change in the Queen's itinerary so she pays a visit to Kort Maclcod. There is a slim possibility, Uit nothing is confirmed, that she might visit Alberta again in 197-i. he told the chamber di- rectors. Poiverplant has operated in river valley since 1910 Sale of the river valley poirer plant would mark the first time in 65 years the city has not been responsible for generating at Jeasi part of the electricity it uses. Before the city began oper- ating a plant, a private firm called Lethbridge Electric Co. provided the city's electricity starting in 1893. The city bought the plant from Lethbridge Electric in 1P08. and construction started on a new plant, the one Mo- used. The new plan! unfinish- ed when the old plant down in 1909. wo rk continued on the plant the Al- berta Railway and Coal Co. provided electricity fur the city. At that time, utility bills for light were 50 cenis per morith for a 16 cacdle power carbon lamp. An increasing practice of changing lamps to ones with more candle power hastened the installation of electric meters. The new plant had ore 300 kilowatt and one 500 kilowatt generator driven by steam engines. In 1932, a turbine and gen- erator with a 3.500-Hknvatt capacity was installed and, linked with a 1.250-KW tur- bine and generator added in 1919. lasted through (he De- pression years. Now. two 5.000 KW steam turbines and two 10.000 KW gas turbines have replaced Ihe smaller units.
