STUBBS While I certainly don't want to sound like a killjoy you really should be considering vaccina- tion or booster shots as a safe- guard against some of the vaca- _St ion problems Iftthat can occur. For example, if [you're going into irough country, I tetanus shots Ishould be a T'must" in your Jpreparations. Or, if you're fortunate enough to be travelling abroad you'll need a smallpox vaccination. And, if you're going anywhere you real- ly can't be certain the water is all it should be where purity is concerned please do be certain to have typhoid shots before you leave. Your medical doctor, of course has the answers to these problems and please do consult him before you leave. And do have a really good time of it oh that long-awaited vacation! You can always depend on Stubbs Pharmacy to be your friendliest place where service and quality meet here in Lcth- 1 bridge. Filling your prescription is our main business hero at 15U6 9th Ave, S. unveiled Sunday at p.m, Ralph Effler, Gyro president, will turn over the mine en- trance complex to Mayor Andy Anderson. A plaque marking the site of the mines, owned by the North West Coal and Navigation Co., was donated by the Lethbridge Miners' Library Club in 1963. The entrances to the mines were hi the coulee bank im- mediately east of the spot where the plaque now stands, just north of the high level bridge. Although the river is now some distance to the west, near the turn of the century it was close enough to the mine that steamboats and barges were used to take coal downriver to Medicine Hat. An inclined railway just south of the mine ran up the coulee. An endless rope was used to pull cars up the rait way for shipment of coal to Medicine Hat and Great Falls. Free Parking On Saturday Free downtown parking is scheduled to go into effect Sat- urday. Under the scheme, a project of the Downtown Business- men's Association, pers o n s may park at any one hour meter hi the downtown Leth- bridge area without feeding the meter. City, crews have been placing small stickers on the meters in- dicating a two hour free park- ing limit. Regular two hour, and 12 minute meters are not affected. Parking by them will require the regular meter fees. City commissionaires will chalk mark cars using the free meters and tickets will be given to persons exceeding the two hour limit. The plan has been instituted on a one year trial basis and may be abandoned if it does not work out. EVANGELIST Rev. Rex Humbard of Akron, Ohio, known as America's televi- sion pastor, delivers a gospel message during his first ap- pearance in Lethbridge Thursday at the Exhibition Pavilion. An estimated 157 persons of the 2.000 persons present made a public com- mitment to Christ following the two-hour service, which included messages and songs by the Cathedral Singers whose membership is drawn largely from Mr. Humbard's family. The meeting was sponsored by the Lethbridge Christian Businessmen's As- sociation. Mr. Humbard, pas- tor at the Cathe- dral of Tomorrow in Akron, has a viewing audience of up to 17 million via syndication on 218 U.S. and Canadian TV stations, including CFCN- TV.

Permit Values Run Well Ahead Of 1969 Pace By HERB JOHNSON City Hall Reporter If building permits issued at citf hall are any indication, de- velopment in Lethbridge is more than keeping pace with last year. Total permits to the end of June came to com- pared with for the same period last year. Not included in the 1970 fig- ures are several major proj- ects that have been announced, but which have not yet begun construction, including the new Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. beef slaughtering plant and a Moore Business Forms Ltd. plant. The total value of the 933 permits issued during 1969 was This included build- ing or alterations on 20 apart- ments, 205 residences, 26 stores, 26 factories and 15 schools. The first building permit is- sued this year for an apart- ment was in March, for a 27- suite structure at 16.03 Scenic Drive. April and May saw one apartment begin construction each month. These two relatively small projects were followed in June by a million, 78 suite apart- ment that was begun on the old IDS church site at 1103 5th Ave. S. Several other .major develop- ments are in the process of ob- taining approval to begin con- struction.. Mount Royal Estate Ltd. has a million con- dominium development plan- ned for a three acre site east of the College Mall shopping centre. Others include a 128 suite development east of Lakeview School and a multi family project at 20tH Ave. and 35th St. S. A 10 storey motor hotel on Mayor Magrath Drive is also awaiting city approval. Recently approved by the Municipal Planning Commis- sion were 32 suite apartments at 256 North Mayor Magrath Drive and 1408 9th Ave. A S. A major concern to develop- ers is the availability of mort- gage money. Several persons connected with the building industry con- tacted last month said there had been problems in the past year obtaining funds.: Others said the money was there, pro- vided one could pay the high interest rates. More recent statements seem to indicate there may have been some loosening up of funds in the past month or so. One spokesman for the indus- try said there doesn't seem to be any shortage of mortgage money, although funds had been difficult to find since last July up until just recently. Drug Charge Against City Youth An 18-year-old Lethbridge youth, AWra Leslie Matsui, was remanded to July 10 in magistrate's court in the city Friday morning on a charge of possession of hashish. He was released on his own recognizance with bail. No election or plea was taken In Friday's appearance. Matsui was arrested Thurs- day by RCMP. He was on pro- bation resulting from other charges when arrested. Another factor, especially in situations where large amounts of money are involved, seems to .be the desire of people in the money market to have a "piece of the action." Several persons in the indus- try said there is a growing tendency for Canadian firms to want an equity position in new projects, as has been the prac- tice in the United States for some time. Several more large projects may be in the wind for the city. Dennis O'Connell, direc- tor of the Economic Develop- ment Commission, said judg- ing from reaction received ou a tour of Manitoba, the Man- times, Ontario and Quebec, Lethbridge is the "bright spot" in Western Canada. He said he expects an an- nouncement within three weeks on an industry that would em- ploy between 15 and 20 per- sons. Two more announce- ments on major industries are expected within eight months. Mayor Andy Anderson said recently prospects are good for the city as far as industry lo- cating here is concerned. A re- cent section in the Financial Post had been very good ad- vertising for the city, he said. He has received many favor- able comments as a result of it and feels it will greatly aid the city in attracting new in- dustry. Air Canada Employees Relocated The pull-out of Air Canada staff in Leftbridge should be complete by July 20 But the osmpany wil have a saies rep- resentative stationed in the city to cover the Crowsnest Pass, Medicine Hat' and .Montana rea. 'Gordon A. .Sanders, manager of the Lethbridge office said to- day that the nine Air Canada employees in Lethbridge have been transferred to various cities, mostly in western Can- ada. He said al of the personnel are on pre-visits to the various cities to look for bousing. "Nome of the employees have left Lethbridge yet and some of the office staff will be in the city for about two weeks to clear up the he said. He said Air Canada ticket sales will be handled by three city-based travel agencies. "People have been diverted from the airport to travel agen- cies for ticket he said1. "We like to have tickets pur- chased at the downtown offices in advance because it speeds up any ticket processing for the customers." Tax Deadline Today is the deadline for pen- alty free tax payments at city hall. The deadline had originally been set for the end of June, but has been extended to the final business day of this week. City hall closes its doors at p.m. LOOK WHAT I FOUND Verwoerd of, McNally holds a rare find an 11- pound edible toadstool, picked up on the farm where he lives, after recent heavy rains. Officials at the tethbridge Research Station say the size of the toadstool is unusual. The taste of the toadstool, according to the Verwoerdsi "It doesn't resemble a mush- room, and it's not too good and not too ba dl" Milk Going Up One Cent Southern Albertans will pay one cent more per quart o milk July 15, instead of twi cents as was previously state< in a report carried by The Herald.
