WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN Status Of Centre Discussion Set Ray Speaker. Albei'la miiii.s-' ler of social development, is j tentatively scheduled to be in Lethbridge late this week or, early next week to discuss the status of a pi'oposed day care centre in the city. ^ Mayor Andy Anderson said: Monday the minister' plans to j bring to the open meeting information gathered on centi-es in other parts of Canada. The mayor said there is a strong feeling all across Canada that municipalities should no longer be involved in public welfare programs, but should confine their activities to preventive social services and day care centres. With the city expanding at it.s cunent rate, he said, the situation warraiU.s additional facilities. Opposition to the new centra has been voiced h\- the operators of existing facilities and some pi-ivate individuals. Mayor Anderson also said he was quite enthusiastic about the urban life study called by Premier Harry Strom. The mayor attended the second session in the study last week. No details of the study are currently available but its terms of i-eference should be foi-niulated and released in late �July or eaily AvgusI, he said.

The city of Lethbridge had ] charged Enerson's with using Word Soon On Low-Cost City Housing Woi-d is expected scon on final government approval of low-ccist ownership housing for Lethbridge. Mayor Andy Andersen said Monday. Tentative approval for the scheme was received from Robert Andras, the federal mji'nister responsible for housing, n^ore tliain a week ago. All that is requii-ed is official notification of his consent to Fred , Colborne, proviincial minister i of municipal affaii-s. The provincial minister must give Ms approval to housing projects designed by private developers. Some $900,000 is to be allocated for use by private firms available at S'i per cent interest. By HERB .JOHNSON City Hall Reporter dty council's budget committee Monday dealt with requests for gi-ants from a number of local organizations. The largest grant approved was $15,000 for the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta .$5,000 of this had already been approved by councO May 4. It was argued by Alderman Rex Little that tlie city was simply picking up an operating deficit from the past two yeai^s and was not investing in an expanded progi-am for the coming year. The association's budget, he said, indicated a oiu'tailment of progi-ams. He questioned the wisdom of ina'easing the grant when the city would be getting less promotion fi'om the association. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff wanted to know if the city was getting value for its money under the regional approach to toui'ist promotion followed by the association. Direct control over promotion through tlie hiring of a tourist promotion director is the only way of ensui'ing that the city's fimds are spent on promoting the city, he said.

The Letlibridge Chamber of Commerce was given a gi-ant of $600 to help pay the rent in its new quarters. Wilf Bowns. chamber general | manager, had asked for .'i;2,500 to pay for the installation of partitions and fixtures. The .?600 will take care of the payments for the first year if the amount is amortized over a five-year pei'iod. The chamber is moving out of the regional development building across from city hall. The property, said Mayor Andy Anderson, will be sold if the city gets a reasonable offer. The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission and tlie Economic Development Commission are also moving out this summer, leaving the building vacant. The Victorian 0 r d e r of Nurses, which had been given a $1,000 gi-ant May 11, was given an additional $1,000. They had requested $4,000. [CLIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M. LACK DENTAL lAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. Open Saturdays Evenings by Appointment PHONE 327-2822 Aid. Rex Little suggested the extra money might keep the organization going until the provincial position on financial support of health services is clarified. Aid. C. W. Clrichester noted that "some very great changes" are coming in this area. An overall plan may be presented by the province at the next meeting of council, he said. The budget committee also reconsidered a request for a $1,000 gi-ant from the Canadian Mental Health Associat i o n, Southern Region. Before gi-antlng the request, the committee satisfied itself that the money would be used primarily foi- mental health progi-ams carried out by volunteer workers, father than building a bui-eaucratic structure. A YWCA request for $4,000 was only partially granted, llie committee agreed to pick up halt the $4,000 deficit on the iindei'standing no deficits would be paid by tlie city next year. Some concern was expressed, as it was May 11 when the original request was turned down, that the deficit had been incurred primarily through the implementation of new programs. Aid. Vera Ferguson said she would like to see tlie YWCA operate its residence, which ' performed an important func- \ ^ I ^^-y pp, tion in the city, but eliminate j I I I'JlTl'l/* its programs, which could not I X Id.I.A11. compete with those offered by | the parks and recreation de- \ partment. A request for $2,000 from tlie Letlibridge Symphony Association was tabled untU certain points in the budget could be clarified. AUister F^ndlay city finance dii-ector pointed out it was not clear from the budget how much money had been paid out to bring in the organization's revemie. It may be as high as 45 per cent, he said, or even higher. Aid. Vera Fa'guson noted that attendance figm-es had di-opped for the association's concerts. She suggested if the public is not sustaining the symphony through attendance, the oity should perhaps not support the group through public taxes. A ,$4,300 grant for the Bowman Arts Centre was approved on the understanding tJiat a $2,000 gi'ant from the provincial government would be forthcoming. The centre had asked for .$6,300. Also approved were grants of $220 to the St. John Ambulance Association and $2,200 to the Dorothy Gooder School for Retarded Children. The committee also authorized a grant to the Kiwanis ."v... \ Band, the amount depending on expenses, but not to exceed $2,500. Not approved were requests from the Lethbridge Five-Pin Bowling Association, the Lethbridge and District Gladiol us and Square Dance Festival committee and the Devon Nursing Home. \ew Section Of Hioliway McCREADY-BAINES PHARMACY ANNUAL DUTCH AUCTION SALE Now In Full Swing Till June 30th!
