Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Moll Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 32S-7411 RUNG CABINETS Artillery crew to demonstrate NWMP guns A group of young city men will spend part of the sum- mer illustrating artillery techniques used by the Northwest Mounted Police when the force first came west 100 years ago. The gun crew and its two cannons, which spokesmen claim cost each to build, will be officially unveil- ed Wednesday at 2 p.m. at a ceremony in front of Leth- bridge City Hall. The volunteers for the gun crew have been training for the past three months, taking regular army training from an ex-Canadian army ser- geant-major. The gun crew, dressed in old NWMP uniforms, will trav- el all over Canada illustrating the history of Southern Alber- ta and the NWMP, says Don Jarvis, the artistic director of the proposed summer histor- ial pageant The Sight, Sound, and Fury. Mr. Jarvis says the Sight, Sound and Fury pageant, pro- posed by the Association for Historial Productions, will use the cannons. Apparently constructed ac- cording to the authentic speci- fications of guns used by the early Mounties in the west, they will not be capable of firing a projectile but will make a loud noise. They will be demonstrated in a coulee west of the city following Wednesday's ceremony, Mr. Jarvis says. Mr. Jarvis says the cost of constructing the guns was raised through "unsolicited do- nations." "The word got cut what we were doing and people were willing to give money to help he says.

PHONE 328-3388 Lethbridge is among sever- al centres in Alberta and British Columbia being con- sidered for relocation by an American boat manufacturer whose Kelowna, B.C., plant burned to the ground May 6. However, an executive with the company in Spokane, Wash., told The Herald Mon- day no decision has even been made as yet as to whether the million plant, that employed about 140 people in the central Okanagan city, will be re- built. Bob Walling, controller for Fiberform Plastics Manufac- turing Co. Ltd. and secretary- treasurer for C a n a d i an Fiberform Ltd., said the deci- sion will likely depend upon the availability of federal government grants. The company's Kelowna plant, operated by Canadian Fiberform, was built with about to in department of regional eco- nomic expansion grants and began production in April 1969. Besides Lethbridge, the firm, which is now a division of U.S. Industries Ltd., has looked at Vancouver, Cal- gary. Cranbrook, N e 1 son, Trail, and Salmon Arm, Mr. Walling said. The company em p 1 o ys about 450 people in Spokane and another 75 people in a plant in North Carolina. Mr. Walling said the com- pany would be reluctant to rebuild in Kelowna because it felt the fire could have been put out and damage to the plant confined to about 000 but the Westbank fire de- partment which arrived first decided the fire was outside their fire district and did nothing to halt the spread of the blaze. He said if the firm did lo- cate in Lethbridge it would likely build a similar size plant, but discounted a local rumor that a incen- tives grant had been offered to the company to build here.

Consumption of fresh pota- toes in Canada has fallen off considerably in the past 20 years, say D. M. Shute and Z. Y. Yankowsku writing in a recent edition of Canadian Farm Economics. The peel- ing, slicing, boiling, mash- ing, frying, baking and roast- ing routines are giving way to heat-and-serve methods made possible by processed potatoes. Meat consumption in Can- ada rose to a record 142 pounds per capita in 1971 from a previous 1949-10-1962 average of 117 pounds. Cana- dians are eating more beef and pork, less veal and about the same amount of mutton and lamb. Chicken consumption In- creased from 13 pounds par capita in 1949 to 33 pounds in in 1971. Turkey consump- tion rose from three pounds in 1949 to 10 pounds in 1971. Overall cereal product con- sumption dropped in the past 20 years, but prepared break- fast food consumption has re- mained fairly constant. Canadians are eating more fruits and vegetables, the au- thors say, mostly in the pro- cessed form. Consumption of frozen and fresh fish and shellfish has increased, but consumption of cured and canned fish is declining. Capital projects to cost million By ANDY OGLE Herald Start Writer A revised capital spending budget totalling for 1973 was approved by city council Monday. Aldermen also unanimously approved in principal 1974-75 capital budget projections which see the city falling some short in 1974 and short in 1975 of its borrowing limits from the Alberta Municipal Finance Corp. The borrowing capacity was recently raised from to per capita and is the amount of money municipal- ities are allowed to borrow for capital projects each year from the provincial govern- ment coporation at lower in- terest rates than can usually be obtained on the open mar- ket. City manager Tom Nutting said, however, a million expenditure on city sewage treatment facilities in 1975 may not be necessary that soon depending on the effec- tiveness of sewage bylaw re- visions still the subject of dis- cussions between the city and major industries- Two aldermen questioned a expenditure on fur- nishings and equipment for the new library currently un- der construction recalling that aldermen were "talked up" to the current expendi- ture and that it was consid- ered the limit. The library board will be asked to justify the further Some is allocated for Sportsplex construction this year while will be spent on the proposed cov- ered swimming pool on the north side in 1974 and in 1975. Community sendees direct- or Bob Bartlett said a report on the pool will go to council at its next meeting July 3. West Lethbridge financing for 1973 was also discussed by council with aldermen vot- ing to table the matter until the next council meeting in order to get comment on it from the city's auditors. Council was told options have been taken to date on 47 west side lots and an esti- mated 30 building permits are expected to be taken out this year beginning July 15. Mr. Nutting also told coun- cil several of the city's big- ger housing developers are in- terested in obtaining as many as 20-50 lots if they can be assured of being psrmitted to develop east-side lots at the same time. West side policy at the mo- ment is no more than five lots to one builder and Mr. Nutting said a more detailed planning is needed before this can be changed. Country braces for busiest season The effects of national and international publicity for the RCMP centennial are being noticed at Kinsmen Whoop-Up Country. The Lethbridge Kinsmen Club which operates the rh- er valley tourist attraction says attendance for the first two weeks is up 20 to 25 per cent and during one 15-minute period last week visitors from Holland, 'Sweden, and New Zealand signed the Fort Whoop-Up guest book. "We're expecting our busi- est season in our six-year his- tory." said one Kinsmen. He said 716 people have gone through the fat prior to Friday while the total includ- ing school groups is about 1.300. About people have ridden the train. Whoop-Up country Is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week except Tu- esday and may be open Tues- days as well later on in the season. Un mn v, to authorize borrowing the comes before council. In other changes from the original capital budget sum- mary passed in January, for city hall expan- sion was removed from this year's budget as was the city's share of the Gilbert Patterson Community School project. City hall expansion has been pushed back to 1974. Tenders for the community school apparently came in over estimates and the public school board has asked that it be redesigned making it extremely doubt- ful it will be started this year, council was told. Major expenditures slated for this year include 000 for water supply facilities. A bylaw authorizing borrow- ing that amount was approv- ed by council Monday. Included in the sum is 000 for a three million gal- lon underground reservoir to be built at 14th Avenue and 26th Street N. Construction of the new bridge to the west side can be advanced, the city man- ager told council, but will re- quire some financial juggling. Mr. Nutting said the bridge can probably be finished by the fall of 1974 with construc- tion slated to begin this Sep- tember. Respiratory illness group elects local man director A Lethbridge man has been elected to the board of direc- tors of the Alberta Tubercu- losis and Respiratory Dis- ease Association last week.

It said the support staff of the University of Lethbridge achieved parity in this con- tract with the wage agree- ment at the University of Cal- gary plus an extra amount for the second year.
