Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 27, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE UETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, January 27, 1975 Council agenda crowded for tonight's session Everything from inflation and industrial park green strips to Sportsplex rates and transportation of the han- dicapped during the Winter Games crowds city council's agenda tonight. Inflation is discussed in a report to council from City Manager Allister Findlay on a recent request from Local 70 of, the Canadian Union of Public Employees for a mid contract wage hike. The report puts the cost of living increase from 1974 at 12.4 per cent, 1.44 per cent higher than the 10.96 per cent wage increase the union negotiated in 1974. The second year of the con- tract calls for only a 10 per cent wage hike in 1975. "Although I am sym- pathetic to adjusting some classifications, I am afraid this would have a snowball effect with all other unions and administrative says city Personnel Director Gerry Hopman in the report. SMALLER BUFFER ZONE Another report going to council Monday suggests reducing a 300 foot wide "green strip" separating residential and industrial areas between 5th and 9th Avenues N. on 28th Street, to 100 feet. The report, from planners with the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission, points out that the land hides nothing because of a lack of intensive land- scaping. Screening with small hills, and trees and shrubs could be done more adequately and at less cost if the area was narrower, it suggests. The remaining 200 foot width could be sold for small one -.story workshops which would also provide screening, and the funds could be used to buy more parkland elsewhere. If council goes along with the suggestion it will have to notify all adjoining land owners, under provisions ,of the Planning Act, and hold a public hearing before the proposed action can be taken. SPORTSPLEX RATES Yet another report to coun- cil sets out proposed rental rates for Sportsplex facilities for a' six month trial period. The rates include a per hour charge for use of the Sportsplex ice surface by minor hockey and figure skating organizations, per hour for "other non profit no admission" hockey and for skating parties. A number of resolutions from Aid. Tony Tobin will also be heard, including one asking the city to lease a vehicle to transport handicapped people to various Winter Games events in the city. Aid. Tobin also asks in another resolution that coun- cil agree to provide servicing to one acre of land for the Rehabilitation Society of Lethbridge to enable it to proceed with immediate ex- pansion plans. He is requesting that all persons and business located in the phase two area of down- town redevelopment be sent a letter explaining zoning changes the bylaw passed at council's last meeting made on the area and the effect of those changes on property. Aid. Bil Kergan also has a resolution before council. He wants it known that council" reassures and in fact re emphasises that council welcomes any citizen to appear before council at any regular council meeting or at any town hall meeting. Aid. Kergan says he's sub- mitting the resolution because "it has been intimated in cer- tain quarters that citizens are sometimes not aware of what action council may take that may effect their well being." Council's meeting starts at p.m. Post-sun action set for Games Instermatic TIME-ALL 24 hour automatic portable lamp and appliance timer. discourages burglars easy to set welcomes you home PRICED AT 13 25 DOWNTOWN There won't be a lack of ac- tion for Winter Games spec- tators and athletes after the sun sets on each day's sports events. The Games' Western Hospitality Committee, filling in athletes' idle hours, has put together a succession of amusements for the public and performers: The more relaxing side of the winter competitions will begin following the official opening of the Games with a western "hoedpwn" for ceremony spectators, says Vera Ferguson, hospitality boss. The two hour whoop-up will be included in the admis- sion price to the opening ceremony and will feature two bands and the Southern. Alberta Square Dance Club. Another event that will include the public and athletes will be the Feb. 16 pancake breakfast sponsored by the city. The city will toss out for the free breakfast "as a thank you to citizens and Aid. 'Ferguson says. The VIPs attending the Games will lie partying at the expense of individual provin- cial governments. "The city thought it better to put on a pancake breakfast for the people rather than spend on a VIP she explains. Other functions that will be available to anyone during the Games include a Games revue and folk sing Feb. 12, a Youth jazz band from Nova Scotia Feb. 16, and a drama festival Feb. and 19, all at the Yates. The jazz band will also be performing at St. Andrew's Church gymnasium Feb. 17 and 19. Some events during the Games will be strictly for athletes, with many being staged at the villages in Lethbridge and Pincher Creek. The hospitality committee has arranged for games rooms and movies in the village here. A cabaret will also be put on for the athletes. In Pincher Creek athletes will have dances, a barbecue and will be able to view the NAPI Indian dancers. In each Games site, lounges have been set aside for athletes.

By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer A bit o' Burns, a wee bit o' haggis an' a lot o' fun. That was the result here Saturday of a celebration of the 216th anniversary of the birth of Scottish poet Robert Burns. The ceremony, held at the Royal Canadian Legion, featured drink, a meal, a dance, and haggis, of which Burns surely would have approved. It was sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion Pipe band. The annual event drew nearly 300 people who dined on McGregor's blood (tomato laich cuts o' roastit beef (roast wee gree ingins chappit taties green peas and carrots. But it was the old Scots' dish, haggis, that gave to the meal its true Scottish flavor. Haggis is bits of meat, oatmeal and other ingredients cooked in a sheep's stomach. The dish was piped into the dining hall in the traditional manner. Bearing the haggis on a tray, Drum Major Archie Muirhead, followed Pipe Major Alistair Gilchrist around a table of guests and up to the front table where Charles Morrice addressed the haggis and slashed it with a dagger. The whole ceremony, with the nasal ring of the pipes, the flash of tartans and pitch of the thick Scots' ictus, kept thoughts of Scotland and Robert Burns in mind. Jack Whyte, delivering an address to memory of the poet, described Burns as a man that has "gained fame and notoriety, has been built in Scotland and abroad, who was a rogue and who wrote some the greatest love lyrics in poetry." With those words, and more added by other speakers including Morris MacFarlane and Rev. Bruce Field, the magic of Burns, a drunkard and womanizer and one of the greatest poets in Scots' history, settled on the dinner. Weekend mishaps injure some Picture Butte RCMP are an accident in which four persons escaped major injury Sunday at a.m., four miles east of Nobleford on Highway 519. Injured in the one car rollover were driver John Peters and passengers Gary Oike, Sheila Billiard and Kevin Lushia, all of Nobleford. They were treated and released at St. Michael's Hospital.

Thirty-five years ago Mastoiditis, an in- flammation of the mastoid bone cells located behind the ears, was responsible for many operations which left unsightly scars. Now, a prescription for a few dollars worth of medi- cation, if taken in time, makes an operation unnecessasry. But, any pain about the ear should receive immediate medical attention.
