'Host And Hostess Prove Invaluable' Teen Clefs Enjoy Japanese Hospitality Editor's Note: This is the irst of five reports to be sent o The Herald from Expo 70 in )saka, from five senior mem- >ers of the Teen Clefs, noted Lethbridge singing group di- rected by Mrs. Anne Campbell, lie clefs are giving daily per- ormances at Expo. On our departure from Leth- >ridge we were all very glad :o have so many people turn out to wish us sayonara. The crowds at tie Calgary airport were quite stifling so he first leg of our journey.was quite tiring and anxious. The light was interrupted when we refueled at Anchorage, Alaska, where most of the girls pur- diased post cards, souvenirs and scalding hot chocolate. As I'm sure anyone who has ver been on a flight realizes, he aft section is the most tur- bulent. Guess where we were itting? The plane ride was bumpy to say the least. But as usual we managed to survive except- ing one, Huth Mills who suc- cumbed to that evil, air sick- ness. We were pleased to be treated to a number of special goodies by several folks chocolates by Pat Coole and Marion Swan- ston. A surprise treat was af- forded one of the girls when she offered us a chocolate, opened the package and pulled out a ten foot string of bubble gum. Arriving in Osaka we re- ceived the red carpet treatment from the Japanese government. We were ushered through cus- toms ahead of the rest of the charter flight group, photo- graphed and interviewed by several reporters from various newspapers in Osaka. Our hostess and host Reiko and Mitsushi both gov- ernment aides, greeted us at the airport. Both are fluent in Japanese and English. They have proved invaluable to pur success as a touring choir. We were then chauffered to the Grand Mansion for our per- forming stay in a bus with red velvet seats. The Grand Mansion is espec- ially reserved for people per- forming on the Floating Stage, the Amphitheatre and the Festi- val Plaza, all located near the theme pavilion Tower of the Sun. In contrast to the bathing facilities in Canada, Japanese baths are squafe but quite deep. Heated by gas, the instant hot water facilities must be started ahead of time and the bath water about 10 minutes early. True to the nature of the Japanese the bath is a place for relaxation and meditation, after scrubbing outside the tub no soap is allowed in tie bath! Our rooms are typical of Japanese style including a tea room with tatami mats the only decor. The hotel supplies slip- pers to insure cleanliness of the rooms. We were kindly asked to re- move our shoes and wear slip- pers in the rooms. Interestingly enough, the entrances and door- ways are designed for Oriental height; not over six feet and mostly in the area of five feet ten inches. Special credit should be given to the staff of the Grand Mansion for their orien- tation which was informative showing much warmth and con- cern. After two long days with little sleep the girls had a much- deserved rest, before going out to the Expo site where we be- came veiy excited about the trip and tie honor bestowed on us by the Japanese government, made possible by the people of the City of Lethbridge. Four-Family Residences Okayed For MM Drive The Municipal Planning Com- mission Wednesday removed conditions on the construction of five four-family residences by N.H.K. Holdings Ltd. at 232 North Mayor Magrath' Drive. Plans for the development were approved June 10 by the planning department on the condition the exterior finish be in brick or block. The developer felt the condi- tions were too restrictive, espe- cially since he intended the units for lower income families, and made application to the commission. Envin Adderley, planning di- rector, said the development would provide welcome relief in the row of apartment blocks on the Drive in that area. The five low units would be aesthe- tically- pleasing in that context, he said. He also noted the need for a more definite statement in the city's bylaws on aesthetic values to provide guidelines in making such decisions. With the conditions removed the developer may go ahead with his planned Spanish stucco finish. The commission refused an application by P. Simons Con- struction to build an addition to an existing building at 1019 3rd Ave. S. Further development on the site will not be allowed un- til the lot is consolidated with another to the north. Approved by the planning de- partment earlier this week was a six-suite apartment at 1718 7th Ave. S. The commission also discus- sed the possibility of setting aside a 20 acre site in North Lethbridge for sale to develop- ers as a trailer court. A plot plan of the suggested site is to be prepared by the planning director. It was also decided some pre- liminary planning should be done on possible construction sites for sports facilities in the event Lethbridge is chosen for the 1973 Canada summer games. Awarding of the games to the city would mean federal assist- ance in the construction of three major facilities. A de- cision on the location is expect- ed later this month.
