Steady rain drowned not only attendance but also the thirst of Letbbridge's heartiest beer drinkers. It was the second consecutive day that rain kept the facility from being as packed as it was last year. Unless the rain clouds make room for sunshine, the Exhi- bition Board sponsored Beer Garden will have an unhappy first anniversary. But Monday saw the elbow benders put away 400 dozen of Canada's finest suds. Make someone hap py Buy them a Rose today! MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Marquis Hotel Bldg. PHONE 327-1515 Compared with Tuesday night, Monday's beer drinkers were a more boisterous and happy crowd singing and dancing from 9 p.m. until mid- night. Last night only a handful of dancers ventured onto the gar- den's earthern floor to gyrate with the country and western band on hand. Normally, the half-covered fort-like beer garden would cater to capacity crowds of 650 people at any given, time. Anyhow, those in attendance last night were served by cheerful waiters and waitresses who ensured a constant flow of bottled beer, which was poured into plastic tumblers or served in jugs containing four bottles of beer. Naturally, due to Alberta Government Liquor Laws, any- one under the age of IB was saddled with drinking pop. City police were at the gar- den entranceivays to keep any trouble that might occur to a minimum. The beer garden, open noon until midnight daily, caters not only to the beer drinker, but also to families. Under near-normal conditions the beer garden's half roofs would provide shade to sweat- beaded mid-way patrons. For individuals who feel they have latent piano talents, a sel of ivories are made available. A band quickens the heart- beat and boosts the air of gaiety with toe-stomping music between 9 p.m. and midnight every evening. As on Monday night, groups of drinkers at tables try to intersperse the music with their own songs, sometimes on the verge of the ribald. If any complaints arise, beer garden management usually places a diplomatic request to "cool it down" and the patrons adhere. Beer is served by waiters, who are outnumbered by at- tractive waitresses, and beer drinkers can also buy drink tickets at a self-serve booth and get it from the bar them- selves. Probably the most important factor governing the success of the beer garden is that there is no admission charge. Admission Is free whether you drink or not. As Beer Garden Manager Garry Shilliday says: "Give us some good weather and we'll be swamped." So only mother nature can tell if refrigerators with their capacity will ever empty.

Improved air service in ant] out of Lethbridge, a major new ice arena, provincial-municipal financing and future energy re- quirements for the area were on a list of business under cur- rent consideration at city hall. A committee of council will meet July 24 to consider what Lethbridge would b'ke to see in the way of a better deal with Edmonton in financial arrange- ments. The city position on munici- pal-provincial financing will go to the Alberta Urban Munici- palities Association for consid- eration, then to the provincial cabinet for consideration in new legislation. Aid. Steve Kotch was de- feated in an attempt to open council debate on improve- ments to air service. The ma- jority of aldermen voted to leave the matter on the table until Time Airways Ltd. of Lethbridge makes information about its future plans avail- nble. a The Alberta Urban Munici- palities Association annual con- vention will be in Lethbridge this year, Oct. 24 to 27 at the Holiday Inn and the El Kancho Motor Hotel. Aid. Vera Ferguson has sug- gestel one local resolution be changing the term of city coun from three to two years A committee is expected to consider resolutions shortly. A S3 fee charged lawyers foi information from city hall has annoyed one alderman, himself a lawyer. Aid. Vaughn Hembroff sail the fee is charged lawyers who telephone city hall to get the income tax owing on a client's property, yet if the client called himself, the information wouk be given free. City finance director Allister Findlay said he would investi- gate whether the fee could be waived without trouble for such "minimum services" as giving tax information. A 30-page report from the Alberta Housing Corporation on methods to market lots in the new West Lethbridge area will be discussed at the next city council meeting, which is July 31. Mayor Andy Anderson handed out copies of the report to council members Monday. Under a regulation approved Monday by council, a report oa fire damaged buildings must be made to council within six months ot the lire. Aid.

He said the 5 p.m. closing is a hardship on numerous work- ing people who are finished the job for the day and want to go for swim at that lime. City council turned down re- quests by two separate com- panies that wanted to sell mobile homes from property at College Shopping Mall and at vacant land at 3rd Ave. and 8th St. S. Neither application conformed to zoning in the respective com- mercial areas. Aid. Vera ing against the application to sell mobile homes at College Mall, said approval by council would have opened the door to car sales at parking lols at all city shopping centres. A. D. Gelmon Development Ltd. had asked permission to display about 12 to 15 mobile homes on property bordering College Mall, near Mayor Ma- grath Drive and 23rd Ave. S. Also rejected was an appli- cation from D. J. Royer of Wales Hotel Holdings Ltd. to sell second-hand mobile homes on property at 3rd Ave. and 8th St S. on a temporary basis. Mr. Royer told council "two major developers" propose a large-scale commercial devel- opment at the site and the mobile home sales were only to continue until the development was prepared. City council voted Monday to give the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta owing on a grant, 3lus a pat on the hack for cf- lorts to promote tourism. Aid. Vaughn Ilcmbrotf said be association deserves con- gratulations for efforls to pro- mole tourism locally, inclini- ng work on the Whoop-Up Days parade and exhibition. The association had asked council to pay the balance of Is pledge immediately because members have been ardy in paying dues, leaving he association short of funds. City council move helps inform public By GHEG McINTYRE Herald Staff Writer A move thai will give Lhe public more chance to com- ment en city business received grumbling support Monday from city council. Council gave second read- ing to ii bylaw that will allow Lhe news media to obtain cop- ies of the agenda of Monday evening council meetings at 4 p.m the Friday before. The agenda is currently not available until Monday mor- ning. This will permit Friday eve- ning broadcast of business to go before council Monday, and publication in Saturday's edi- tion ot The Herald. Lane to be closed by council's order FinST THREE All of today's North American horoughbreris are descendants i[ three horses brought from England toward the end of the 7th century and the beginning if the mill century. City council authorized clos- ure of one end of a lane in Leth- bridge Monday over objections from some residents in the vicinity and support from olh- crs. The south end of the lane between 6th Ave. and 6lh Ave. A S., west of 13th St., will be closed because of the danger from motorists using the lane to children playing. Council received a 50-signa- Residents annoyed at decision A resident of the 6th Ave. and 13th St. S. -vicinity has blasted city council Tor its de- cision Monday to close the lane between 6th Ave. and Cth Ave. A. Marilyn Krammcr, 1256 6th Ave. A jharged that council has committed a "flagrant mis- carriage of justice" by taking the wishes of four people in favor of the closure over feelings of 56 who signed a petition against the move. She said reasons given to close the lane mainly the danger of traffic to children playing were ridiculous. Mrs. Krammer said she has lived at the location for 26 years and there have been no incidents of children injured by traffic. She said the lane closure will only favor residents such as Dr. H. E. Afaganis, who live at the corner that will be closed giv- ing extra property to their yards at the rear. Dr. Afaganis was among those who petitioned the city to close tlie lane. Vent didn't like float Aid. Vera Ferguson didn't like the City of Lethbridge float in the Whoop-Up Daj's parade and has asked for a re- port on how much the float cost and who designed it. The report is to be prepared by the city administration and brought to the next meeting of council which is July 31. Otherwise, A1 d. Ferguson said she enjoyed the July 171 parade very much. ture petition, however, opposing the lane closing. Aid. Bill Kergan spoke for those in favor of the closure. He said "it should be closed off before someone is killed." Residents favoring the clos- ure said at a public bearing in council chambers that motor- ists travel down the lane at speeds up to 40 mph getting access to 12th and 13th St. and avoiding the intersection traffic lights. Speaking for petitioners who wanted to leave the lane open, Clarence Watson of 12G1 6lh Ave. A said closing the lane would cause "great inconveni- ence" to residents who park at the rear of their houses. Council must solicit public opinion of people involved at a public hearing, such as Tues- day's council meeting, before making such a move. Few accidents reported Although there were probably more people in Lethbridge this week than on any other given time of the year only two acci- dents were reported by city police. And one involved a horse. Mrs. Pat Garrison of Apt. B 5 Spruce Towers Apartments suffered a possible broken ankle when the horse she was riding tripped in a hole and tumbled on top of her. The accident took place on the Coutts Highway, one-half-mile east of the city limits. Information on the second ac- cident is sketchy. A motor vehicle driven by John Red Crane of Fort Mac- leod was involved in an acci- dent at the intersection of llth Ave. and llth St. S. A police spokesman said: "He wandered into the Civic Centre badly bleeding from a head in- jury." The bylaw still requires linal reading. Aid. Vaughn Hembroff noted the new policy is likely to mean people will be calling city al- dermen during the weekend wanling to talk about business coming up for consideration Monday. "But that's what we signed on he said, reluctantly ac- cepting the proposal. "We can't deny the public the right to comment on city business, no matter how we may feel about it." A'ld. Cam Barnes and Ed Basledo objected (o public com- ment on city business until council lias dealt with it. "Twice Uiey've tried to out- guess Aid. Bastedo said ot news stories speculating on what council might do at com- ing meetings. Aid. Tom Ferguson and Bill Kergan favored trying the pro- posed scheme of giving the agenda out at the start of the weekend. "Let's give it a said Aid. Ferguson. Summer is just around the corner Slowly improving weather seems to be (lie order of the day today. The weather pattern which has dumped nearly 1.5 Inches of rain on the Lethbridge area in the past three days is mov- ing out of the region and giving way to cloudy conditions and the odd .isolated afternoon shower. These conditions will probab- ly exist through tomorrow but there will actually be little or no rainfall. And, there's a strong possibility of some sun- shine. The high today will be in the 60 to 65 degree range while the low tonight mil be around 40 to 45. The high for Thurs- day will again be in the mid- 60s.
