Joe Balla chairman of the city's munici pal planning commission, fol lowing representation from the University of Lethbridge on the "critical shortage of accommo- dation for university and col lege students."

Measles Vaccine Use Clarified Lethbridge medical health officer Dr. A. A. Byrne has is- sued a statement correcting an error in Wednesday's Herald concerning use of a new Ger- man measles vaccine on preg- nant women. Dr. Byrne said it would not be healthful for a pregnant women to receive the new vac- cine since she would then in effect be receiving a mild case of the disease. Instead, if a woman suspects in the early months of her pregnancy that she has been exposed to German measles, she should report it to her doctor, who as a precaution will treat her with gamma globulin as in the past. The Herald regrets any prob- lems Wednesday's report may have caused Dr. Byrne and oth- ers concerned. Tliird French TOUT Tiie third 1970 group of French tourists numbering 150, arrived hi Lethbridge Tuesday. The series of tours, spon- sored by Relax Travel and Pernod of France, visit Water- ton Park, Pincher Creek, and a guest ranch near Beauvais Lake. The tour currently in the city will visit the shopping centres and attend International Day at Whoop-Up Days. i Under the chairmanship of Aid. Rex Little, council as a whole was recently named as a committee to review the city's present zoning bylaw and build- ing standards. The committee had tentative- ly set early August as its first meeting date, but it's hoped that an earlier special meeting can be called to discuss the stu- dent housing problem. "We have individual rooms coming out of our ears." Mr. Jensen told the commission. "The type of accommodation in greatest demand is the base- ment suite. This type of accom- modation is most satisfactory to a large percentage of the stu- dent population because it pro- vides flexibility and indepen- dence, and at the same tune reasonable rent in most cases." The university is recommend- ing to all students not living at librae, or with relatives, that they live only in university ap- proved housing. The university has a special department set up to list, inspect and classify premises. The university will not have any residences of its own until the fall of next year when the first phase is expected to go into operation west of the river. TERRY ILUNGWORTrr proprietor Barabajagal Endeavour Sells Many Nice Things By STAN FRUET Staff Writer A few of the young people in Lethbridge feel the city needs an exotic shop that sells far out fashionable clothes, com- plete with the incidentals that jo with them. One of the more enthusiastic of these people is Terry Ulings- worth. Terry, 16, and Lethbridge's own, has a booth called Baraba- agal Endeavour at the Youth- a rama building and sells ev- erything from paper flowers, >eads, pottery, flower pot ar- rangements, leathercraft, pot- ery to Italian racing shirts, cud- le toys, wind chimes, felt ote-bags and solelcss sandles.

To rent a booth for six days cost the girls They to make- some money and if things turn out well they want to set up a shop in Lethbridge along the same lines. A couple of other energetic young people are Rod Hillman and Dwayne Prosk both from Lethbridge. They operate The Flower Pot in the Youth-a-rama building. Their merchandise consists of hand made leather goods, made locally, posters, hand tooled brass and woodwork from In- dia. They bought the tooled brass and woodwork wholesale in Cal- gary and are selling some hand- made goods on consignment. Both the Barabajagal Endea- vour and The Flower Pot say Iheir prices are comparable, if net lower than those in depart- ment stores and shops in larger centres where these types of stores exist. If tilings turn out well for the Flower Pot, -they too intend to set up a shop in Lethbridge. Something else new at the Youth a-rama building is The Quest. Apparently they are taking a survey of young people's goals m life and their philosophy about God and Christ. They re- fer to it as a "rap station." The Quest stems from Youth Ventures in Vancouver. Doug Hudson, youth co or- dirjator at the exhibition grounds, said they saw this boolh in Edmonton and asked them to come to Lethbridge. Eo far the response has been good. About 100 people, mostly young, have sat in the booth and re- lated tlieir aims in life and phil- sophy about God. Some stay five minutes and some for as much as two hours. Other displays at the Youth- a rama building are: Berti- Higa School of Music for accor- dian, banjo, piano, organ and guitar; Mexican and Central American Goods; a Lethbridge Community C o 11 e g e display; Wigs by Aristocrat; metal sculpturing by Bill Malloff; He- gal cook wear; Hawaiian plants; Niagara-cyclo massage; orig- nal oil paintings; a Manpower booth; Hukuba Hoky, carpet sweepers marie in Japan; An- glo Distributors, stereo ar.d pho- :ographic supplies; Marie's lea- her goods, clothes and orna- ments; Electrolux vacuum cleaners; a University of Leth- bridge booth; a surrise pack- age booth; CHEC-FM both with a free draw for 109 al- bums; Honda Centre; Princeton Shop; and a CJOC radio booth, raffling off a Wurlitzer juke box with the top 24 hits. MFC Tables Plans For Ford Garage Visiting Senator Claims B-B Commission Off Beam By JOAN BOWMAN Staff Writer A Ukrainian-Canadian sena- tor says Uie commission oh bilingualism and biculturalism went "away off beam" when it rejected multiculturalism in favor of biculturalism, in the fourth volume of its recom- mendations. Senator Paul Yuzyk, Saskat- chewan-born university history professor, said the commission "went off-base entirely.

Doug Dunlop of Dunlop Ford Ltd., for whom the garage is to be built, agreed to the tabling when the contractor failed to show up as a delegation to an- swer questions. In the meantime the applica- tion is being referred to various department heads, planners and the city solicitor to exam- ine all details of the proposed structure. The commission also tabled an application from McDonnell Manufacturing which sought permission to establish a motor home manufacturing plant at 1502 2nd Ave. S. The location was formerly oc- cupied by Texcrete Products and was a non-conforming use under the city's present zoning bylaws. However, because the firm was established at the lo- cation prior to the change of the bylaw, it was allowed to keep operating. The bylaw states that once a non-conforming use goes out of existence in any area, another non-conforming use cannot take its place. To gain approval for the manufacture of motor homes, the site will have to be rczoned. It's understood the firm had purchased the property before it had checked into the permis- sible uses for UK location. Bylaw Petition Filed A petition against a city by- law allowing more paid Sunday sport and entertainment was received this morning at city hall. Submitted by lawyer Briant Stringam, the- petition was gathered by local churches, led by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The petition was received about this morning and Mr. Stringam estimated it carried about signatures. It will be submitted to city council for consideration at Monday's meeting. In order to block third and final reading of the bylaw and force a plebiscite on the issue, any petition must have a mini- mum of names which is ten per cent of the electors. A plebiscite, if it is held, would likely be delayed r.w.v 1971, the date of the next civic election. The original intended dead- line of July 9 was extended until today after an objection by Mr. Stringam on the word- ing of the public notice regard- ing the bylaw. Scholarship Music student Sherry Pratt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Her- bert Pratt of Lethbridge, has been awarded a scholar- ship from the provincial gov- ernment to be used for studies this summer at the Banff School of Fine Arts. think any government would accept such a philosophy. It '.vould incense Canada's ethnic groups." Sen. Yuzyk, named to the upper house in 1963 by former prime minister John Diefen- baker, was in Lethbridge Wendesday and this morning to contact southern Alberta Ukrai- nian-Canadians in connection with the Ukranian National Association." The association is the largest and oldest Ukrainian fraternal benefit society in the world. Mr. Yuzyk, newly-elected vice- president for Canada, is being accompanied on his month-long national tour by Joseph Lesaw- yer, U.S. president of the World Congress of Free Ukrainians. It is expected an association branch in Lethbridge will be established as a result of the two men's visit. Sen. Yuzyk, who spoke to local residents Wednesday night at the Ukrainian Greek Orthodox church, said Canada could not continue to build along bicultural lines when one-third of the population is of non- French, non-English' slock. A self-confessed "arch-enemy of the Progres- sive Conservative senator said ideas should not be promoted which are discriminatory and lower a second-class status on non-English-French citizens. Cabinet minister Robert Stanbury has stated Ukrainian is a Canadian language. "Why should Canada not take advan- tage of its rich treasurehouso of Sen. Yuzyk said. He suggested Ukrainian-Ca- nadians have been much more politically active than any oth- er ethnic group, other than the French and English. Since the first Ukrainian-Canadian was elected to a parliament s'eat in 1913, 93 others have been named to federal or provincial positions. The senator, from the Fort Garry riding in Manitoba, is one of 40 members of the joint- Parliamentary committee on the constitution. The committee starts its cross-country public hearings Sept. 8 in Winnipeg. He said he was proud that Canada has decided to initiate a new constitution because "it is the first country in the world to develop a constitution with- out resort to revolution." He said he wanted to ensure the rights of minorities are safeguarded in the new consti- tution, a first draft of which is expected in two years. SENATORIAL VISITOR Lethbridge Mayor Andy Anderson looks on as the city's guest book is signed by Senator Paul Yuzyk (P.C. during his Can- adian tour of Ukrainian-Canadian groups. Sen. Yuzyk, during the month-long tour, is seeking to establish new brandies of the Ukrainian National Association, a fraternal organization of members in Canada, which will soon bring out its second volume of a Ukrainian ency- clopedia in English. Sen. Yuzyk is Canadian vice-president of the association. WHOOP-UP SPECIAL! ALL SUMMER BLOW UP TOYS ON SALE AT PRICE HOYT'S SPORTING GOODS DEPT.
