Man injured in mishap A 60-year-old man is in serious condition today in St. Michael's Hospital with multi- ple injuries after he was struck by a car Friday after- noon. City police are not releasing the man's name until next of kin can be notified. Police said the man was in- jured as he crossed 2nd Ave. S., in the 1400 block. George R. Orango, 1001 2nd Ave. S., was identified as the driver of the car. The ice at Henderson Lake is unsafe for skating, city police say. Chinobks have melted por- tions of the ice and caused holes and ice in places is dangerously thin. CtrtniM Dtnul MtcMnic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL UN.

PIMM 328-0372 OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Use of salt for debate Monday The pros and cons of using salt on city streets will be debated once again in city council chambers Monday. Council has two resolutions before it on the use of salt one submitted by Aid. Bob Tarleck carried over from its last meeting and a new resolution from Aid. Bill Kergan. In addition two letters from citizens opposed to use of salt appear on coun- cil's agenda. Aid. Tarleck's resolution calls for council to authorize the city engineer- ing department to use strictly controll- ed salt on major thoroughfares for the rest of the winter. It would also require council to reappraise the use of salt in the snow removal and ice control program before next winter. Aid. Kergan's resolution also would allow salt to be used on city streets. It reads: "Be it resolved that salt shall be permitted on city streets on authorization and discretion of the city manager but only after consultations with the city engineering director and the chief of police." A letter from E. S. Vaselenak op- poses the use of salt on the grounds that damage done outweighs any advan- tages that may be gained from using salt. Mr. Vaselenak cites rust damage to vehicles, and corrosive damage to un- derground sewage pipes made of concrete as well as damage to pumps and machinery at the city water plant. Aid. Tarleck in his resolution suggests vehicular corrision, par- ticularly in Lethbridge's dry climate would not be serious, and that snow removal and ice control costs can be reduced by 50 per cent by using salt on the roads. Council last debated the salt subject about a year ago and decided by an overwhelming majority to continue the city's policy of not using salt on the streets. A brief fuss was caused late last year when It was revealed City Manager Allister Fmdlay had authorized use of salt on two underpasses, the 9th Street overpass, and the brewery and 5th Street N. hills during the Dec. 22 blizzard. Mr. Findlay said he approved the salt because the city's own street cleaning vehicles were having difficulties on the grades. Council later backed the city manager's decision. Clean-up report going to council Bill for blizzard The Dec. 22nd blizzard cost the city for snow, removal, says a report from Randy Holfeld, city engineer- Water well projects approved By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FOREMOST Forty Mile County councillors proved Friday they can tread softly on controversial issues like maintaining water wells. Council decided to proceed with rural well development but only in places where wells already exist. Councillors don't want to get involved in drilling new wells, unless provincial grants are available. Coun. William Kenneth Babe opposed the move, say- ing if communities want cisterns installed at their wells, they should be prepared to put up some money. Wells at Skiff and Hoping will be improved at county ex- pense, council decided. "It looks like we are runn- ing into a pretty serious dry situation with several dugouts frozen to the said Coun. Russell Scratch. "This is a good year to go ahead with this." "I think the county should fix up the well for the Hoping agreed Coun. Marg Dragland, Coun. Babe disagreed. "If the people in your area are not interested enough to put up one-third, I don't think tax- payers all over the county, should fork over X-number of dollars if they are not willing." When it came to a vote, council decided to make the weir improvements. It could involve the installation of overhead storage tanks so water haulers can fill their tanks with ease. Meters won't be installed. Council took a lesson from the Lucky Strike well where meters were bashed from the wall by thieves trying to crack them for nickels, dimes and quarters. Now the honor system will be used and water haulers will be billed for the amounts they sign for. ing director, to city council's meeting Monday. A detailed breakdown of equipment and labor hours and costs for each day of snow clearing operations from Dec. 22 to Jan. 10 is provided in the report. In evaluating these expen- ditures, Mr. Holfeld says, it should be noted that the city's fleet of snow and ice control equipment has not changed in numbers in the last five years, with the exception of one ad- ditional rubber tired loader on lease. It should also be noted, he says, that in the last five years city street mileage has increased 26.7 per cent. Mr. Holfeld adds: "The storm was a severe storm ac- companied by high winds preceeded by above freezing temperatures which caused melting and subsequent icing of the first snowfalls, and oc- curred at a time when max- imum equipment and man- power, both city and rented, was not available to clear the accumulated snow prior to the snow becoming compacted." Snow clearing and ice control measures are taken in a sequence of: overall accessibility by emergency vehicles; major thoroughfares; public transit routes; collector roads; lanes and local roads, Mr. Holfeld adds. City equipment, he says, includes four highway sanding trucks, and three loader graders plus rubber tired loaders of varying sizes. Council also has on its agenda a letter from former alderman E. S. Vaselenak asking what has happened to snow clearing equipment he says the city had some years ago. His list of such equipment includes draglines, bulldozers, street tractors with sidewalk blades and ice and snow breakers and attachable conveyor belts for loading into trucks. "I request council to please advise where the street clean- ing machinery is at the pre- sent time and why it was purchased some years says Mr. Vaselenak, who last sat on council in 1966-67. Games programs coming but they'll be late It's attractive, informative and a valuable souvenir of the 1975 Canada Winter Games. And it's late. Games programs boss Bob Parkyn says the society has until Feb. 24 'to sell copies of the 102 page, bilingual program. The Games wants to start selling programs, and thousands of Southern Albertans are eager to buy them. But unexpected snags have delayed the "very attractice" program, says Mr. Parkyn. "We thought we were going to get it earlier. "Translation problems delayed us about a the program boss says. Some translation work was done by the local bilingual committee, but the program had to go to Sport Canada for translation before printing. The program, which features messages from Games president Charles Vir- tue, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, Health Minister Marc Lalonde, Premier Peter Lougheed and Culture, Youth and Recreation Minister Horst Schmid, is at the printers. The Games expects to receive the long awaited souvenir program Feb. 1. Program boss Parkyn says Games Action Central is tak- ing orders for the souvenir booklet. deliver it anywhere in Southern Alber- he adds. He says the Games has tried to accomplish two objectives: provide sport fans with a com- prehensive guide to each sport and event and give Southern Albertans a souvenir documenting every aspect of the Games. Included in the booklet, which contains detailed infor- mation on each venue, is a draw number. Three draws will be made, with first prize a Hawaiian holiday for two. Second prize is a color TV and third, a portable dishwasher. "If we sell them all, the cost to the Games will be negligible." Enough adver- tising has been sold to defray printing costs, he says, although the rights and properties committee never gave the program a "hard sell." "We felt that sure, we want to pick up money through advertising. So during a month period we merely ask- ed people if they would like to advertise We gave the Op- portunity." The booklet con- tains no product messages from tobacco or liquor com- panies, but "this was not done deliberately." The program, written and laid out by volunteers, is being printed by Alcraft Printers of Calgary and Bulletin Commercial in Edmonton. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC St. S.
