The symposium is an integral part of the 17th an- nual meeting of the Genetics Society of Canada and is co- sponsored by The Herald and the University of Lcthbridge.

Denti-care coining? The provincial government is studying the feasibility of in- cluding prepaid dental care in health insurance, says Alberta Minister of Health and Social Development Neil Crawford. Mr. Crawford, at a meeting of Pensioners Concerned in Ed- monton, said routine dental treatment, such as fillings and extractions, is very costly for government to get involved in. Dr R D. Kinniburgh, presi- dent of the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Dental Society, said the, dental profession supports the inclusion of prepaid dental care in health insurance programs, but agreed that the cost mil be "astronomical." He said when people start taking advantage of prepaid dental care, Rail spur line gets council okay By RICHARD BUHKE Herald Staff Writer A expense, over the estimate, for construc- tion of a spur rail track to the new industrial park was ap- proved by city council Monday. At the same time, council set a policy to charge the pur- chasers of property in the in- dustrial park requiring a spur line the cost of installation of the tracks. That was not done In the Council rejects parking permits DONT FENCE ME IN Nature lovers, hikers and physical fitness enthusiasts were represented at city council Monday night by a letter from local resident Leonard Simpson, who asked that the city not close off the Henderson lake Golf Course side of Henderson Lake. He suggested that a fence be constructed on the south side of the lake leaving the walking path open to the general public. This brought a stiff rebuke from Aid. Steve Kotch who said, "It is ridiculous for people to want to walk on the golf course side of the lake. People be damned. Let them walk on the other side of tha lake where they won't get hit by a golf ball."

It is recognized that the pun- lie will benefit from prepaid dental care, and the dental pro- fession would benefit from in- creased payments. But the government has nothing tJ lose, since It colleels taxes to pay for services, Dr. Kinniburgh said. Chairman .1. F. Falconer of the Alberta Health Care Insur- ance Commission pointed out that certain oral surgery pro- cedures are presently part of the medicare plan. Dental caro resulting from accidental injury is included in the Blue -Cross Plan, he said. "There is no proposal at pres- ent to extend hte dental pro- Mr. Falconer said. BETTER PLANNING Lethbridge city's three per cent annual rate of growth of population and services allows for better planning than the 10 per cent growth rates of her larger sisters Edmonton and Calgary. The agreement would see the city lease 250 acres of Country Club land east of the golf course for park development and the Country Club lease 20 acres of city land in the river valley for construction of additional nine golf holes. The contentious point in the tho the agreement, which caused tabling motion, was that city spend for a fence to separate the golf course from the city-leased property. Other city expenses would be for two storm sewer crossings over the golf course; per year for year-arounc maintenance of the Country Club road, and for sub grade work in the river valley The agreement also stipu lates the property leased to the city would not be used to ac comtnodate motorized recre! tional vehicles. The lease would be or years and renewable for years. Weed clearing at Henderso Lake will begin Wednesday city council was told Monda night. In answer to a request from the Lethbridge Fish and Gam ear, city community services irector Bob Bartlett said te ampaign is directed by the re- carch station and is "well nder way."

New and better quality treet signs have also added to expenses within the de- artment, he said. Vandalism signs, particularly one week- nd in January when 40 to (50 igns worth were Jestroyed, has accounted for a arge unexpected expenditure, said. Aid. Bill Kergan asked for a report concerning the number if people charged and convict- ed of vandalism and the amount of restitution paid. Interest gained from money in the community reserve fund will now be credited to the fund, city council decided Mon day. The community reserve fund has been established from pay .ents made to the city by lam developers in lieu of com munity reserve or parks, when that land is not required fo parks. The interest from this count, which was more than last year on a reserve account, has previous ly been applied to taxation re- lief. The matter was brought t council's attention by Dr. T. G Atkinson, of the former park and recreation commission. Dr. Atkinson told council tha since land values are constan ly changing, the interest from the community reserve fun lould be fed back into the und so it will "maintain a ealistic relationship with land allies in anticipation of future and requirements." The fund is used only for buy- ng park lands. The new council policy is etroactive to Jan. 1, 1071. First reading of a bylaw to lose the lane west of 13th St. S Between 6th Ave. and 6th Ave. was given by city counci Monday. A delegation of residents liv ng near the lane appeared a the meeting to support the lam closing. A spokesman for .the resi dents, Dr. Harry Afaganis, tol council car drivers use th ane, particularly during rus hours, to avoid the traffic lights at 13th St. and 6th Ave. "We have traffic going down the alley all Dr. Afa ganis said. The practice cause an extreme hazard to childre in the area and is a nuisance I residents in terms of noise an dust, he said. "There is heavy traffic Gth Ave. and on 13th St. whic we accept. But, why must have an alternate freewa down our back D Afaganis said. Council did not dispute th need for land closure, on' which end of the lane should barricaded. It was decided I south end of the lane, from 6 Ave. A. would be closed. Special parking permits will not be issued to downtown res- idents, city council decided Monday. Residents on 7th, 8th and 9th St. S. between 5th and 6th Ave. had petitioned council to grant special permits to allow them to park in front of their houses Barber hours resolution defeated An amendment to the early closing bylaw to allow barbel shops to remain open until ti p.m. weekdays was defeated bjr city council Monday. The city solicitor, however was instructed to bring back another amendment bylaw to accomodate barbers who wisl to keep their shops open unti 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and remain closed Monday. The change would return bar her shop hours to what the were before the existing bylaw was passed. Barbers with opposing view points addressed council at th meeting. S. J. Blech, representing per cent of the local barber said he wanted no change i e present hours. "One or tw arbers should not be able elate a he said. All we want is our eigh our day and 40-hour week [r. Blech said. Jorgen Maegaard said h usiness is based on night sho .ng and the existing bylaw ef- ectively stopped a practice he ad maintained for more than during the day without being fined. The matter was referred to the traffic advisory committee which recommended council not issue the permits. Alderman Ed Basted o sub- mitted a resolution that the permits be issued, but had only Idermen Cam Barnes and Bill ergan as supporters. Aid. Kergan said if the traf- c committee members lived the area in question, "they ould not have brought in such recommendation." Tile problem involves res- dents in the area who own cars )ut have no off-street parking ccommodations. They must move their cars every two vo years staying open hursday and Friday nights. Council appeared generally _i favor of accomodating bar- kers on both sides of the argu- ment by calling for the amend- ment for Thursday and Friday ight opening and Monday clos- ng. case of Moore Business Forms, which has an option to pur- chase land but with no mention of the cost of spur tracks. In a letter to council, City Manager Tom Nutting said tha city is responsible for the cost of the spur tracks, all grading, pipe and wire crossings and road crossings. Alderman Vera Ferguson suggested council develop a policy to involve the city, when a local industry has plans to expand, with forms of subsidy such as construction of spur tracks. Mayor Andy Anderson said a policy is being developed which will require every industry, whether local or from out of the city, to pay for all servic- ing of land purchased. Mr. Nutting also said in his letter the spur track for the new International Distillers Canada Ltd. plant should be completed by the end of July, at the company's request. Work cannot start on the track in- stallation until approval of road crossings is given by the Ca- nadian Transport Commission, he said. That approval will r.ot coma before the end of July. Aid. Tom Ferguson suggest- lours during the day or be sub- ect lo a parking ticket and inc. Aid. Vera Ferguson did not yinpathize with the residents and moved that the parking committee's recommendations >e approved. The motion pass- d by a S-2 margin.

In a letter to council, City City Manager Tom Nutting said the city has been request- ed lo purchase two new school buses, at a cost of to provide additional service next year for both school boards. Aid. Ferguson said five cities in Alberta have gotten out ol school bus service, but "Leth- bridge is getting deeper into she said. "I'm not sure we're not, as a city, picking up part of the tab the education foundation should provide." Finance director Allisler Findlay, acting city manager 1 at-the meeting, said the city is being asked to absorb the school boards' capital costs when the separate school board shows a surplus of and the public school board a 000 surplus. Aid. Cam Barnes saSj ihs city should have further dis- cussions with the school boards about the possibility of the boards buying the buses.

But that kind of place Is needed too. I'd like to see one get started again." "Having the drop-in centre at Adams offers the oppor- tunity for such activities as basketball, ping-pon, floor hoc- key and baseball. There are facilities for glass-cutting, can- dlemaking and poster painting. "There are several Opportu- nities for Youth projects locat- ed in the building that the kids can make use of. One is a handicrafts program that works daily with them, one is a leisure skills project that gives them opportunities to go camping or on trips to Water- ton. "The Aid for the Aged proj ect offers them work on a part- time basis, making small re- pairs and doing odd jobs for ienior citizens. We show movies in the cen- tre occasionally, and Billy Nichol practises there, so :hey've got music. The kids have had two dances to date, both successful. "Future projects include a city-wide raffle, motorbike ro- deo, 10 speed ralleys, and we hope to participate in a booth at the Lclhbridge Exhibition." The staff has been reduced to five because of lack of funds, said Mr. Garratt. The five are Allan Walkey, Dave Paeaud, Sharon Nelson, Bud Belle, and Sharon Hawkins. Mr. Garratt as co-ordinafor is responsible for care of the building and "keeping the kids organized and cared for." The drop-in centre is open daily from to p.m. and from 2 lo II p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sun- day. The centre serves mainly 10 to 16-year-olds, said Mr. Gar- ratt. He estimated that 75 young people showed up night- ly. "The trips to Waterton take about 25 kids away. 'We've had a very good re- sponse from the north side, we'd like to see more south side kids get on their bikes and come up. "In the future it would be nice to see regional drop-in centres In the city so the kids don't have to come so far. Two facilities with an interchanging staff would be good." "There are far more parents coming down since we've been in Adam's. I think they were afraid of what they were going to see in the other place. They come down just to look around, or to register their kids in some of the OFY programs." "Our objective is to supply the kids with a place to do the things they want to do, with enough facilities available for a choice."
