Board members agreed the service, in operation from Jsn. 15 to May 4 this year, benefits parents registered for studies on campus. They said temporary facili- ties can be brought up to health regulations for about Continuing education direc- tor Dr. Keith Robin said he will be pleased to investigate plans for day care expansion, with board approval. "I have been asked to pro- pose that the centre be re- opened September operat- ing for a full academic year for children of college stu- dents. "Certain innovations (are) considered necessary if the program is to operate suc- cessfully: "A fencsd-in outside play area with some playground equipment, more adequate washroom facilities including toilet facilities suitable for small children, .cots for nap time, a rccni with windows." Dr. Robin said. He said parents might be willing to pay per child per semester for a day care centre. Extra charges would be needed if a lunch was pro- vided, he said. The temporary day care centre was located on the third floor of the LCC science building. That space is no longer available and the city health department has ordered four changes if the centre is operated on a per- manent basis. Senior health inspector I. H. Potter said six cribs or cots are needed in a steeping room; dishwashing facilities must be provided if food is served; children's toilet fa- cilities must be provided; and food preparation should be separated from the sleeping, play and toilet areas. College president Dr. C. D. Stewart said those regula- tions can be met for or A further report on perma- nent day care facilities is ex- pected before September from Dr. Robin.

The last traffic fatality in the city occurred July 21, 1972. Insp. Bill West, traffic di- vision, says, however, that chances of going a full cal- endar year without a traffic death are slim. "It would be pretty tough to go through the summer months without a Insp. West said Wednesday. "But we're sure as hell going to try we'll have lots of enforcement." In a Herald interview, he said that with stricter enforce- ment of traffic laws, the number of accidents de- creases, however it usually takes about two months for the effect to be seen. Examining the city police May statistical report releas- ed Wednesday, Insp. West said that April traffic prose- cutions were down from March, resulting in a cor- responding increase in the number of accidents in May. Accidents increased by 16.6 per cent in May over April, from 181 to 215. Despite this increase, property dam- age last month declined to from the April figure of As traffic prosecutions rose last month from the April tally of 662 to 785, Insp. West is hopeful the number of ac- cidents this month will show a drop.

"We're hoping that it will cut the number of accidents, especially the hit and runs the number of which last month dropped to 36. Every driver involved in a hit and run at night has been drink- ing, he said. The roadside suspension po- licy will be reviewed at the end of June to determine if it has been effective in cut- ting the number of accidents, but Insp. West noted that to the end of May last year, motorists were involved in accidents. To date this year, only accidents have been reported. The May statistical review, prepared each month to aid Statistics Canada in evaluat- ing national crime trends, also shows that to May 31. there were no serious crimes reported jn the city. To the end of May last year, there had been two attempted mur- ders. The number of Criminal Code offences declined last month to 337, from the April figure of 370. And there was about a 20 per cent increase in the num- ber of intoxication charges laid in May compared to April, from 232 to 278. 7-PIECE SALAD SET Made from the finest Monkey Pod Wood Choose from 5 shapes, Gift Boxed. ,50 SET, ONLY 16 Call China 327-5767 DOWNTOWN DR.
