Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Junt 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -29 Engineers suggest underground stores OTTAWA (CP) There's more than gold and bones bur- ied in the earth beneath our space, says a To- ronto group of engineers and scientists. Employed by Acres Con- sulting Services Ltd. of Toronto, the group wants government to save valuable surface space for pleasant things like parks and encourage many businesses to go underground. They came to Ottawa recently to make their pitch to officials of several federal departments. They acknowledged they don't expect an overnight rush to the bowels of the earth. But "they should be thinking in terms of the underground as a potential said J. Gavin Warnock, Acres vice- president, in an interview. The government should de- velop a policy for use of the underground, he said. It should decide what transit, sewer services, go where. Already in some United States centres firms building tank farms must give reasons why the installations should not be placed underground, said D. R. McCreath, another member of the Acres team. Shopping malls have been placed underground in many cities and in Kansas City a group of 10 companies is housed about 100 feet below the surface. The Acres scientists are thinking of going deeper, per- haps as much as a mile down. They picture a series of levels for such things as factories, shops, transportation, sewer and water services and storage. They are not predicting widespread use of underground housing yet. "We aren't convinced people would want to live said D. C. Willett, another member of the Acres group. Mr. Warnock said the main aim now is to encourage com- mercial and industrial use of underground areas with surface space saved for dwellings and parks. The next generation might be more willing to move into apartment buildings under- neath the earth. Shops and plants could be in- stalled within a few hundred feet of the surface with water and oil storage facilities further down. Sewage treatment plants could be placed deeper as could compressed-air and other energy-generating plants. Building underground has some engineering advantages, said Mr. McCreath. The envi- ronment was easily controlled without weather extremes. Air conditioning would be largely unnecessary as it is naturally cool below ground. Underground rock provides the housing structure for the buildings, he said. If rock conditions were good there would be no danger of water seepage. The Acres group suggested underground offices may even help office workers to keep their minds on the job. Windowless offices eliminate outside distractions and cut daydreaming.

Personnel, believes that being a secretary is one of the best ways to work into the ranks of upper management. She should know she started as a secretary. Secretarial employment gives opportunity VANCOUVER (CP) Two of Vancouver's newest company presidents agree that starting as a secretary is one of the best ways women can enter upper management. "This has to be one of the best areas where a woman can be exposed to management principles and techniques." says Audrey Schatz. 40. president of British Columbia Personnel Ltd. She believes that if a person has an enquiring mind "you could be a sponge and soak up anything, and they'll give you more and more to if you want to work for upper man- agement. Mrs. Schatz should started as a secretary herself. Her competitor in the field of temporary and permanent office placement. Barbara Rae. president of Office Assistance Canada Ltd.. also feels there is great potential in being a secretary. "The executive secretary- has lots of experience, and she has observed the rationale of decision-making. But fortunes are being wasted on training young fellows just out of university who wort't stay around." "When they take the lid off. women will very quickly take on top management positions. and they will be fantastic managers, better than we have had in the last decade." says Mrs Rae. 43. Both company presidents have been criticized for perpetuating the oppression of women by placing them in low-paying, dead-end jobs and both argue the comment is unjust. "We aren't finding bodies to just fill jobs." says Mrs. Rae. "We try to match women with the jobs we think they are ca- pable of and in the process they are often upgraded. a secretary isn't cheap anymore, she's expensive." Mrs. Schatz says "we are professionals looking for skills and experience." not body- hunters. The personnel business is run mostly by women, and Mrs Rae says one reason is that "measuring skills is detailed work, and most men wouldn't put up with it." But. Mrs. Schatz says, women still need to be encouraged to try for positions in upper man- agement. "I think a lot of people are reluctant to indicate they want to take on responsibility. A lot of people need encouragement." Mrs. Rae was elected presi- dent of Office Assistance in September. 1973. after three as vice-president and general manager. The company has five branches, including two in Alberta, with a permanent staff of 50. "I had been aiming to be president from the time I could see the company's potential." she admits. "I am more ambitious than the average person." Mrs. Schatz worked as a secretary for several years before starting her own business in 1971. providing secretarial services. She became president of B.C. Personnel in October. 1973. after buying control from then president Cora Grey. The company has a permanent staff of 12 "I have always been aggres- sive." she says. "I don't think it's the desire for power. I think it's the fulfilment you get out of doing something well Lethbridge house builders who once faced a famine of ready mix concrete now face a feast, says the president of a newly opened ready mix plant. A year ago city contractors could buy ready mix from two plants. With the official opening Friday of the city's newest ready mix plant, Tru Mix Ltd., city builders can now buy from four concrete plants. Tru Mix president and house builder Henry Krahn says until recently he and his fellow contractors "had delays on deliveries up to three days." Then Mr. Krahn. retired farmer Tony Buttner and builder Henry Gretzinger decided to form Tru Mix Ltd. and build a fully automated batching plant to eliminate costly delays on the job. The three Tru Mix owners applied for, and were denied, financial assistance from the federal department of regional economic expansion. But a few trips to local banks got Tru Mix on the road to Friday's official opening Meanwhile, unknown to Tru Mix, Edmonton based Arctic Transit Mix and Concrete Products Ltd. moved into Lethbridge to fill the local demand for ready mix And that's when the concrete situation went from famine to feast. Mr. Krahn says the supply of ready mix concrete now outruns local demand. But if the city continues to build at its present rate, he adds, demand will catch up to supply in a couple of years. The fully automated, computerized batching plant on 6th Ave. N., he says proudly, is a local project and the only Lethbridge owned plant of the four ready mix operations in the city. Tru Mix has already won three contracts a cubic yard order from Calgary Concrete Ltd. to supply ready mix for city sidewalks: a 5.000 yard order from Engineered Homes of Lethbridge for sidewalk work in housing project: and yards of concrete for sidewalks in a Krahn Homes development, as well as ready mix for basements and foundation for 150 homes Mr. Krahn hopes to build in the next 12 months.
