Taberites eye grant TABER (Staff) If local businessmen will pledge Taber will be eligible for a grant from the Devonian Institute.

Responding to an invitation from the department of education, the school board reviewed its dealings with the School Buildings Board and presented the following proposals: The support price (depart- ment grants) for school buildings should be sufficient to cover the total costs of a school building to meet the building's purpose, and should include grounds development and irrigation facilities. The replacement dates of school buildings should be flexible to allow for ol solescence, building failure and other features, and should be based on the building condi- tion rather than age. The staff of building inspectors, says the board, does not seem ade- quate to meet the need for in- formation. There should be provision for replacement of furniture and equipment on a continuing basis to update the school to meet changing needs and programs. There should be provision in the regulations for retroactive recognition of needs to coyer such emergencies as roof replacement, heating system failure, and the like. 4( 'M ?JL 'Pass day care centre could become reality BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The Crowsnest Pass may soon be enjoying the services of a Day Care Centre if a survey of the area and a forum to be held on the matter favors such a service.

OURSMAKESYOU A BETTER DRIVER. The average car seat is designed to fit a person who does not exist...the average size driver. So Volvo developed a seat that accommodates eveiy size driver. The Volvo seat is built to help you drive. It's adjustable to your dimensions, to afford you complete control over the controls. If your calves are shorter than average, you can lower the seat height to get closer to the pedals. If your arms are longer than average, you can lean back without moving back. (The seat angle is adjustable.) If your back gets tired, a lumbar adjustment will support you in the style you prefer: from soft to firm. And if your legs get tired, you can tilt back the seat cushion to brace your thighs. Or push back the seat to stretch them. The Volvo seat even improves your visibility. Our head restraints have openings, so you can in back of you. And in cold weather, the driver's seat heats up, automatically. If this seems like a lot of thought to put into the place where you sit, you'll be even more impressed by something else. The thinking that went into theplacewhereweputourseat. The car for people who think. SHORT STOP AUTO LTD., 538 6th South, 328-6586 ;
