Temperatures Sun sets tonight at rises at on Sunday Mayor has fingers crossed EDMONTON (CP) Mayor William Hawrelak hopes the 1978 Commonwealth Games here will not suffer from the severe inflationary costs which are troubling the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. "Looking at our own es- timates we have provided for such an eventuality, but we will know this better when we have received bids on pro- Mayor HawrelaTf said Friday. "Frankly, I'm looking for a surprise the other way. Maybe bids will be sharper." The mayor said he is behind the Games in every possible way "but not in Cadillac style." Ken Munro, ad- ministrator for the Com- monwealth Games planning unit in the city's parks and recreation department, said Friday it appears the Games facilities will cost about or million. This figure includes million for a new stadium; million for an aquatic centre; million for lawn bowling facilities, shooting range and a cycling track; million for the improve- ment of existing sports facilities; for auxilliary costs; million, for administration; for athletic equipment, and for land purchases. Mr. Munro said "that these are escalated estimates. For example, the eventual stadium cost of million is predicated on a base cost of million in terms of July, 1974, dollars. "We don't anticipate being faced with a Montreal situation, although their original estimates were probably not all that he said. Construction costs for the Olympic Games have grown to million from an original million es- timates.
