Officials at the post office said it will take two days to clear away a backlog of mail and return the service to nor- mal. The strike was part of a se- ries of rotating strikes in post offices across Canada, in pro- test against the lack of agree- ment on a new contract be- tween the federal government and the Unions. Council of Postal board chairman, said paint will be supplied in four or five colors -and all that is needed is your own paint brush. The doors of the Youth-a- Hama building will be open both Sundays at 1 p.m. for reg- istration and allocation of space. Last year the floor was divided into square patterns, but this year, to add flavor, the floor will be composite of circular spaces. Prizes will be awarded for the best painted areas. An- nouncement of winners will be priar to Whoop-Up Days with judging by local professional artists. Committee members in charge of the paint-in are AIM Caiman, Sharon West and Doug Hudson, all members of the Youth Exhibition Board.

Favors Subdivision For Multi-Family, Units The Municipal Planning Com mission Wednesday gave ap- proval in principal to the sub division of acres for eigh multi-family dwelling lots an two apartments sites. The land is in southeast Lett bridge, immediately south o 20th Ave. S. and west of 35t St. Approval of the subdivision is on the condition that the de veloper apply for re-zoning t allow the multi-family units. Some problems were antici pated by the commission be- cause the plans' for a proposet development did not entirel) conform to city standards. It was mentioned, however that the developer may applj for funds under the new fed eral scheme to aid low-cos ownership housing. If the project were approver, by the provincial government which must give the go aheat to development, there is i possibility building standard would be waived. Such a move is possible under the federa plan. Mayor Andy Anderson am Alderman C. W.

The city is now waiting for approval from the provincial government. Under the plan, private de- velopers make application for funds which are to be available at an interest rate of 5% per cent. In other business, the com- mission recommended that the youth advisory committee with- draw its application for a per- mit to develop a building at 1001 2nd Ave. S. as a youth hostel. The committee was told It would have to delay the open- ing of the hostel at least two weeks while the city went through the process of advertis- ing the use of the building as a hostel, which would not con- form to current zoning for the area. The only alternative, the committee was told, would be to simply transfer the present rooming house licence held by the owner to the committee. This would mean the building could not be used for any pub- lic functions. A spokesman for the commit- tee said 'hey had been through several months of frustration in getting, the project off the ground and they would prefer to open as a rooming house rather than wait the two weeks. Application may be made later this summer for a hostel operation which would allow Danggas for permission to use a building at 1101A 4th Ave. S. as a tuck shop was approved. Mr. Danggas said his wife plans to sell magazines, candy and miscellaneous items in the shop, now occupied by Altasan Realty.

The accident occurred Highway 3, one-half mile east of Coalhurst. The jury also ruled the Fir- by car went out of control, en- tering the oppssite lane, collid- ing head on with the Humphrey vehicle. An eye-witness to the acci- dent said the Firby car came over a small hill, swerving on the shoulder of the road. When the car approached the Hum- phrey vehicle it veered back from the shoulder of the road directly into the path of the other car. The witness said Mr. Hum- phrey had no chance to swerve out of the way of the oncom- ing vehicle. The coroner's jury recom- mended road shoulders be in- spected periodically and if ne- cessary be built up to the level of the travelled portion. The jury also recommended hat whenever available, seat belts should be used. Apparent- the Firby vehicle had seat belts but they were not in use at the time of the accident. Those killed were Hie sole oc- cupants of the cars involved.
