Mr. 51, has lived in Lethbridge for many years and been active in community af- fairs, including the Lethbridge and District Exhibition board. He was playing coach and manager of the 1951 World ama- teur hockey championship Leth- bridge Maple Leafs intermedi- ates. Mr. Gray said that m an elec- tion campaign he would attempt to outline the importance of ag- riculture on the economy bf the community and the livelihoods of its citizens. He said he would demonstrate how "knowledgeable represen- tation" in tJfe legislature could work to this end, based on his background and experience in agriculture. Already nominated to contest the seat are Dick Gruemvald, Lethbridge insurance agent atnpaigning for the Social Cre- it party, and Charles Buijert, a printer, campaigning for the Democratic Party.

For nearly one year Mr. Pon- tarollo was kept alive by pay- ing regular visits to the Foot- hills General Hospital in Cal- gary, one of the few hospitals in the West which has an arti- ficial kidncj. In late May of this year, he received a kidney transplant. An employee of Alberta Gov- ernment Telephones, Mr. Pon- tarollo was transferred from Lethbridge to Calgary in 1969. He is survived by his wife Muriel of 27 Fay Road S.E. Calgary; a sister Ariadne, also of Calgary; a brother Richard of Toledo, Ohio; his grand- mother Mrs. Maria Bertie of Lethbridge. Funeral services will be held at The Little Chapel on the Corner (Jacques Funeral Home) Monday at a.m. with Rev. Nelson R. Mercer DD, formerly of Lethbridge, officiating. Interment will be in Queen's Park Cemetery. Mr. Pontarollo will be re- membered in Lethbridge for his cartoon contributions to The Lethbridge Herald sports pages of local and internation- ally known sports celebrities. Dm of three requests from local groups for reconsideration of their grants (which had been less than asked for) some of the thinking behind the aldermen's decisions at budget time become some- what clearer than it had been. There was even a suggestion that council, some- time in the future, would have to actually sit down and hammer out some kind of policy statement, com- plete with supporting rationale, that would the rest of the city know what they are up to. JL -fc A move in the right direction? Certainly. It would be an encouraging sign, if it weren't for the fact that it could, and should, have been done last year. Aid Jim Anderson at that time said pretty much the same thing about grants as he said this year. And council was guided by his thinking, as it often is. But this was Aid. Anderson's thinking No one suggested his line of reasoning should be explored to see if it should become council policy. Things were simply allowed to evolve, to the confusion of all con- 'dmonton band wre Monday Edmonton's goodwill ambas- adors, the Edmonton All Girls Drum and Bugle Band will narch in the Whoop-Up Days arade Monday morning at :30.

Fittingly enough, the issue was talked to death and just faded away with no definite statement ever being made by the aldermen as a group. The resolu- tion was simply withdrawn.

Running the city is be- coming increasingly complex and City Manager Tom Nutting is gradually building a streamlined, efficient administrative machine to meet these new needs. Surely it is time council made a similar move. Do alderman want to keep tabs on every little thing or do they want to take a serious look at letting the administration look after the nuts and bolts while they decide where the city is going? ___ MR?
