The acceptance is indicated in a letter from Dr. J. E. Brad- ley, chairman of Alberta Hos- pital Services Commission, as follows: "We have reviewed our in- spection reports on the opera- tion of the Taber Hospital and confirmed your catchment area report. "In our opinion, the present physical plant at Taber is structurally sound, but requires considerable renovations and alterations to make it an effec- tively functioning building.

"We have advised previously that your Board should estab- ish a Joint Planning Commit- tee to undertake the develop- ment of a long range planning program. "The Commission has de- cided that it is unable to as- sign a priority for further de- velopment in your area until the completion of the Provin- cial Study on the Health Care Delivery System which will be actively carried out' throughout the fall and winter and we an- ticipate receiving a report in the spring of 1972.

HERALD 3 Confusion on water system washed away by councillors TABER (IINS) Confusion in the minds ot town council- lors over the town's domestic and industrial water systems, in evidence at the July 12 meet- ing, was cleared up, at least in part, at Monday's session. Tt ws noted that the system was outlined, and the fates set, in a 1968 bylaw of the town which was passed prior to a number of the present council- lors taking office. The domestic system, which is to be supplied from both north and south water pumping stations, will use the north tow- er as a pressure regulator, and will have full sand bed filtra- tion, chlorination, and fluorida- tion. Industrial water, however, will come only from the south side reservoir, and will be mi- cro-filtered and chlorinated in a plant addition at the south treatment unit. The south Taber elevated tank pro- vide pressure regulation for this water which is approxi- mately double in volume of the domestic water. The plant addition has not been connected to the system and the south tower remains in disuse pending completion of the industrial water line to the major industries which is short- ly due. The original portion of the in- dustrial water line, laid some years ago, provided Cornwall Canning plant treated water with to their1 pond which was used for cooling and fire protection. However, the delivery of raw water is discontinued, and the line will now carry industrial water when the final connec- tions are made. In a round table discussion, some members of council felt that, with peak requirements of domestic and industrial needs occurring a4, different times in a year, that the systems should be combined and all water fluoridated. However, no decision was reached, and it is anticipated that, when the systems are put into operation, the results pro- jected by the design engineers will prove satisfactory. Much concern has been ex- pressed recently over the low water pressure in south Taber with the tower there not in use. However, the present domestic plant capacity of one million gallons per day has been put- ling though 1.6 million, and the removal of the industrial de- mands will return the system to a balance for which it was designed. Fluoridation cuts cavities Coaldale survey indicates COALDALE tooth decay (HNS) As a preventing mea- sure, fluoridation has been cre- dited with a reduction in decay rates of up to 60 per cent when used throughout the life of an individual, says Dr. E. D. Ericksbn, school dental officer with the Barons-Eureka Health Unit. A study of Coaldale Elemen- tary School children was con- ducted here to find out exactly what had taken place in the de- cay rates since fluoridated wa- ter was introduced in 1962. A very careful survey was carried out in 1971 to establish which children had been drink- ing Coaldale fluoridated water throughout their life. If there was any said the doubt Dr. child was Erickson excluded from the survey. In comparing this with a sur- vey in 1965, the greatest reduc- tion was in the Grade 1 pupils at 51.5 per cent. In 1965 Uie tooth decay rate was found to be 6.81 in this age class and in 1971 3.30 with an actual re- duction of 3.51. The Grade 2 pupils had a 49.1 percentage reduction, Grade 3 an 18.7 per cent. Grade 4 had a 30.1 percentage reduction, Grade 5 had 25.9 per Grade 6, 28.4 per cent. cent, The greatest benefit, accord- ing to the survey in Grades 1 Cranbrook plans new zoning bylaw CRANBROOK (Special) New city zoning bylaw to meet changing reeds in this rapidly growing city is reportedly under preparation. Rigidity of the existing zon- ing bylaw with reference to floor space and offstreet park- ing ratio has been questioned and the new bylaw, if approved after a public hearing, may be enacted by early September. Meanwhile the demolition of the 60-year-old superannuated post office at the heart of the city, Baker Street and Tenth Avenue, is at the final stage, but new building working draw- ings stage by the site owners, MacDonald-Beattie-Noble Ltd. is bfi'ng delayed and at present October seems the earliest pos- sible building start date. This pioneer pharmeceutical firm building objective is a half-million three-storey struc- ;ure, with upper two floors of- fice rental space. 72 mill tax rate for village NOBLEFORD .axation levy for the Village of fobleford for the year 1971 is 72 mills or Grants from the provincial government amount to 'or municipal assistance.

Tentative consideration is be- ing given a structure which would allow for two additional floors atop the planned three floors when and if office space demand warrants. Highway meet at Blairmore BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) A meeting of great interest to residents of the Crowsnest Pass, regarding the proposed new alignment of Highway 3 through the area, is to be held in the Elks Hall in Blairmore at 7 p.m., Aug. 4 Charles Drain, MLA, has an- nounced the Hon.

The Grade 3 figure was said to be difficult to explain. It would have been expected that it would be partway between Grades 2 and 4. Follow-up sur- veys were seen as necessary in subsequent years. Swimming lessons planned BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The Crowsnest Pass recrea- tion board has announced ar- rangements have been com- pleted to have swimming les- sons for children of the area. Registration fee has been set at Parents are asked to bring the fee for their children. The lessons will be taught by a qualified instructor. They will be held at Allison Creek Dam. Registrations are to be made at the Blairmore recreation of- fice. The classes begin Aug. 2 and will be held for ages six to eight from to p.m. and for eight to 10 year olds from to p.m. and for 10 to 12 year olds from to p.m. A limited number will be in- structed in each session vary- ing from eight to 12 children. I per cent in the Grades 4, 5 and 6 children would indicate that ingestion of fluoridated water for even part of a lifetime is a significant Dr. Erickson said. It was the opinion of Dr. Erickson this project should be checked again each year until at least the oldest children in the survey have been contin- uously drinking fluoridated wa- ter. Only then can a final answer be given as to its ulti- mate benefit. Dr. Erickson said one strik- ing thing was apparent in the 1971 survey: there was only one cavity and one filling in the upper front teeth. This was said to be unusual because in non-fluoridated areas cavities in these teeth are very com- mon, especially among Grade 5 and 6 groups.
