Frank Smith, manager of TCASA said this morning he had been instructed to termi nate the agreement following a directors' meeting last week in which serious dissatisfaction of the student's performance was voiced. The students were to he em- ployed hi the government's tee- pee shaped tourist huts at all major entry points to the prov- ince. Serious delays in their construction have been experi- enced, however, with the hut to be located at Coutts not ex- pected to be completed until Aug. 9. With the cutback of staff, the tourist information centres lo- cated at Henderson Lake and the Gardens in Leth- bridge and "one in Fort Macleod will now be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Studies, reports hold sway in question of new library Day-late midway sprawls across fair grounds awaiting set-up crews Series of events delays midway start By BEV CARLSON Staff Writer A series of incidents com- pounded by a shortage of local help resulted in the late com- pletion of setting up the Thomas Shows Inc. midway show at the exhibition grounds Monday. "Last year we were fortunate in making the jump from Sas- katoon to Lethbridge without incident. It came off like clock- said Bernard Thomas, manager of the snow. "This year, the show was allowed to stay open 1% hours over the midnight deadline previously adhered to in Saskatoon." Although most of the show was in Lethbridge by 6 or 7 p.m. Sunday, generators, and electrical equipment essential to the setting up of some rides did not arrive until approxi- mately 11 p.m. "By the time the equipment did said Mr. Thomas, 'most of the local help which lad been on hand, had left for he night." He said that with the heat on Monday, it was "almost im- possible" to find good, reliable local help to set up rides and attractions. Bill Morton, publicity direc- tor for the Thomas Shows, said, "I wish we could have LMH lets contract for paving Tollestrup Construction Co. Ltd. of Lethbridge has been awarded an contract for resurfacing of asphalt drive- ways and parking areas at Lethbridge Municipal Hospital.

Should it fail, the hos- pital would then be without any power. The second cable to be run adjacent to the first will provide an emergency route for power transmission should the original cable fail.

Very few of the show's work- ers had even closed their eyes since leaving Saskatoon, he said. Temporary help can'only be hired as part time help this season, Mr. Morton said. The show is moving to the Montana State Fair, and would not be able to take along Canadian help. Neil it down once and for all or give the matter further study seems to be the problem facing city council on tie ques- tion of a new central library site. Council offered the library board the city annex property, just across the street from city hall. The board accepted, but council tabled the accep- tance letter "for further study." City Manager Tom Nutting has some reports being prepar- ed on such things as traffic cir- culation problems and servicing. There is also a possibility the site selection may be made part of an over all look at the down- town area. The city is considering doing a study, by Interform Planning and Design Ltd., which would Travel survey under way All motorists entering Alberta >ia the Coutts Highway are be- ing stopped this week as part f a provincial government ravel survey. Information such as the on pn of vacationers, their destin- ation in Alberta and the per- centage of business versus rec- eational travellers on the road s being gathered to compare with a similar survey conducted ive years ago. The survey is being conduct- ed on all major inbound high- ways to Alberta on a rotating basis. PICKET UNIVERSITY PROJECT-Members of Local 955, International Union of Operating Engineers, continue today to picket the main access road to the new university site. The pickets were established Monday by striking operating engineers at construction sites across the province. The university project is the only Lethbridge site affected by -the strike. Only two men are directly involved in the Leth- bridge strike, but other unions on the job site have refused to cross the picket line, thus halting work at the university. The men seen picketing left, W. Woodside, Orest Wolicki and F. Takacs operating engineers from the Shell refinery near Pincher Creek. The strik began July 13 Photos by Ed Finlay Buddhist church dedication The Honpa Buddhist Church of Alberta, Lethbridge branch %11 Forestry Ave., will be de- cicated Aug. 1 at 1 p.m. by Rev- erend Yutetsu Kawamura, now of Hawaii, and a former minis- ter of the local church.

The finance committee of city council meets Tuesday in closed session to look at the proposed study and perhaps decide if the library question is to be includ- ed. Alderman Vaughan Hembroff told council Monday he would like the annex site confirmed soon, preferably at the next council meeting. Further study would probably entail some delay in the current push for a new library. The In- terform study itself is a long- term project. Mr. Nutting said implementation is going to take a lot of time and "it won't come cheap." He said there has been some interest already expressed by downtown merchants in capital expenditures to upgrade tha area. There is room for innova- tion, he said, that may make Lethbridge's business section a model for other centres. Other major downtown devel- opments, in addition to the li- brary, would form a part of tbe study.
