Friend Is retir- ing Aug. 19 as senior health inspector of the City of Leth- bridge Health Unit after 27 years oC service. Mai Friend, known in soulh- ern Alberta for his refereeing, umpiring and coaching work in hockey, minor league base- ball and girls' Softball in the 1950s has been a cily resident since 1945. Bom in Newport, Washington in 1907, Mr. Friend moved to Calgary in 1916 and has been a Canadian and an Albrrtim since. An ardent sportsman involved with hockey, baseball, football and lacross, he saw service with tho Royal Cana- dian Army Corps at its Headquarters 13 in Calgary dur- ing the Second World War. It was with the army that Mr. Friend qualified as a health inspector. Discharged in 1945 with the rank of staff sergeant, he moved to Lethbridge later that year to Join the city health department, which became the Health Unit in 1958. Mr. Friend and his wife, Vella, will be celebrating their 40lh wedding anniversary next year. They have one son, one daughter and four grandchil- dren. Reviewing his years with Ihe health unil, Mr. Friend said he was appointed senior health inspector in 1953. In 1951, he attended the Pub- lic Health Service School of Hy- giene In Kansas to take a four- nonth course in environmental sanitation with emphasis on rat and insect control. After he re- urned, he and the then medi- cal officer Dr. Peggy O'Meara initiated a fly conlrol program n Lethbridge, Picture Butte, Stirling, Fort Macleod Ray- mond and Taber. The mosquito nuisance has since subsided. In 1952, there was a major lood and more than 50 families vho lived adjacent to the Old- man River were evacuated. Afler the flood was over, all but one family were relocated. Two years later Ihere was a bug invasion at the north side of the city. Mr. Friend said an airplane had to be called to spray the area to kill the beet webworms. "There has been no major concern for public health dur- ing my years wilh Ihe health Mr. Friend said.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO Improve mobile home sites Reactions being sought on new park regulations By GREG MclNTYRE Herald SlaFf Writer The Alberta Housing Corpor- ation has invited reaction to a tough new set of regulations that could go a long way to- ward cleaning up much of the unsightliness of mobile home parks Fred Weatberup, a Leth- bridge automobile dealer and a director of the AHC said few, if any, of the mobile home parks in the Lethbridge area would measure up if the regulations were put into effect today. The tentative regulations were represented to about 30 representatives of the mobile home and prefabricated home industry in Edmonton, attended by Mr. Weatherup, Cal Tolley, sales co-ordinator with North- west Design and Fabrication Ltd. of Fort. Macleod and Bob McMahen, general manager of Boise Cascade Home and Land Ltd. of Lethbridge. The proposed regulations are expected to be in final form in a few weeks and in effect in a few months. They will be similar to Cen- tral Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration standards in that they will only apply to people wish- ing to borrow money from the corporation. This spring the provincial government gave the AHC au- thority to loan money for mo- bile home park development. The provincial housing cor- poration has initiated regular meetings with representatives of the building Industry to dis- cuss topics such as financing standards and ways to improve communication between indus- try and government. Dave Rus- sell, minister of municipal af- fairs, said in an interview. A preface to regulations given to industry representatives for comment, said "the mobile home park is rapidly becom- ing an acceptable alternative to normal single family dwel- lings "The shortage of mortgage money, high interest rates and the ever risirg cost of tiie con- ventional house has made this form of residence acceptable to a larger number of people seeking permanent residences. "The primary limitation of this type of development has been the migrant image asso- ciated with the mobile home and its occupants. "Most communities were re- luctant to allow this type of development in areas other than industrial zones The government must create a new type of zoning for mo- bile home parks if this type of residence is to become part of the solution to the current housing shortage, the report said. The regulations would Limit the number of mobile homes to a maximum of eight per acre. Zoning in most respects would be "similar in nature to that pi the conventional single-fam- ily dwelling." Five acres would be the min- imum park size allowed.

Adequate streets and lighting within the park are proposed. Recreational facilities and stor- age space are among regula- tions. Landscaping and under- ground services are proposed.

Change sought Terms on council too long says Vera Alderman V e r a Ferguson feels the current three year elections to city council are too long that aldermen "go stale." It lakes a new alderman about a year to learn the ins and outs of cily hall, she said in an interview. But at the end of every sec- ond year, elected municipal of- ficials should be forced lo face the voters. AH. Ferguson will ask city council on Monday to draft resolution to the Alberta Urban Municipalities annual conven- tion, this year in Lethbridge Oct. 24 lo 27, calling for Police nab pair One of the city's men In blue cut short the criminal career of two young unidenlifled Lethbridge men Ihis morning. A foot-slogging beat constable apprehended the two while they were illegally inside Acklands Ltd., on llth St. and 2nd Ave. S., shortly after 3 a.m. today. They gained entry by breaking a window at the back of the build- ing. City police say the two were also responsible for two other break-ins. Both appeared In court Uils morning charged with breaking and entering and were remand- ed in custody until Wednesday.

Ferguson would like to see a return to the pre-1971 law that required half of coun- cil up for election every second year. "There are a number of rea- sons why the present system isn't she said. "It's pos- sible that the whole council could be defeated and there wouldn't be a conlinuity be- tween one council and next." An entire new body of alder- men would not know what had gone on the previous year and would be unable to carry pro- grams through. Aid. Ferguson said the pres- ence of new aldermen with en- thusiasm and "questioning at- tiludes" keeps veteran council members alert. "A three-year term Is looking down a long road. It's simply too long. The people can get stuck wilh a wsak council for three years." Ideally, a person should servs two two-year terms on council, and Ihen step down, she said. ENJOY THE SUMMER!
